February 18, 2014

To The Reader’s Forum: Two recent letters to the editor by two local preachers use the Bible as proof that Christians should condemn homosexuality, singling out one of our citizens in particular....

Riggle - you asked why letters aren't subbmitted about the other subjects.(8:35) This was started because one man sent a letter saying it was great to be a destination for homosexual marriage. The following has been the result. As far as I have seen no letters have been submitted supporting anyother serious sins that people feel is wrong. Then in your style of sarcasm and exaggeration used the example of writing a letter to the Post Journal about how we should make this city a destination for other sexual perversions, hence child molesters.

I'm not offended.. I'm saddened that someone would compare my daughter to a child molester. I did not whine about it, as you suggested. I simply asked two questions, that I'm sure will go unanswered.

So far I think bigot has shown up twice. First shortly after we started the thread. I find that rude and crude and offensive.....just kidding. I just can't match the monkey when it comes to playing the victim card.

AIDS is natural. Evidently it is also acceptable as a high risk to a lot of people.

Are you whining about being offended because your daughter wants more than her lgbt community? Is she one of the exhibitionist types who want parades and costumes banners with Christian slurs? I know you asked turtle, but just can't resist throwing your own words back at you. So sue me.

I agree that 'doing sheep' is perverted.. the sheep don't have a say in the matter.

"If it does not fit, do not commit.".. that's your grand argument against homosexuality?

My times are revolting(to you).. that is an opinion, which you are entitled to have, but it is only that.. an opinion. I've yet to see any reasons supporting your opionion. Until you provide one, I can only assume bigoted ignorance.

Spend some nights in a metro ER and see what perversion is. Some people like to do sheep. It's still perverted.

SilverTurtle.. are you saying that my gay daughter is as abhorrent as a child molester? Do you think that accepting her into our community is an equivalent comparison to accepting a child molester?

riggle Your "times" are revolting. You insist anyone who isn't as perverted as you must be forced by law if nothing else to accept it.

50s4ever, also.. you keep using the words 'perverse', and 'perversions'. I'm going to provide 2 definitions for that word: 1) showing a deliberate and obstinate desire to behave in a way that is unreasonable or unacceptable, often in spite of the consequences. 2) wrong or different in a way that others feel is strange or offensive.

You think things are 'perverse' because they are strange or offensive to you, possibly unreasonable or unacceptable. Well guess what? Being 'offended' is nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning. You were offended.. so what? It wasn't long ago that showing your belly button was considered 'perverse'.. get with the times.

Masonriggle, I am sorry I am behind on topic. I just wanted to say what I thought about Ewoks comment earlier. I think he meant that welcoming the gay community with open arms should be as abhorrent to us as welcoming child molesters would be. Am I wrong Ewok?

50s4ever.. why did you think it was wrong? Do you have any reasons for that thinking? I'd like to hear them.

As an atheist I thought homosexuality was wrong.

You know the answer riggle. Such language has changed over the years thanks to you guys trying to shut down words like sodomy. So what? In the case of "heterosexual rape" an additional charge would still be deviate sexual intercourse. It's a perversion. Until you change all laws to meet your perversion of the language.

Harold it also says it is better to spill thy seed into the belly of a whore, than upon the ground. So what?

50s4ever.. when a man molests a little girl, do we call it rape or heterosexual rape?

Seadog, please define 'accept'. I think what you mean to ask is: 'Are there atheists who think homosexuality is morally wrong?'. My answer would be: If there are reasons to support such a belief, outside of religion, I haven't found any.

I pointed it out, and it showed up immediately. Not homosexual rape, but pedophilia. I told you so. Has NY changed their descriptive charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse yet?

The one good thing about atheists is they all disbelieve the same thing. Unlike our holier than thou calling others cafeteria Christians.

Can you be an Atheist and not accept homosexuality, or is it just Christians?

And momcat...the debate in previous letters was shut down because it didn't meet Renate's personal views. It's what you people do to declare yourself the winners.
