I would realy love an answer to this question. A straight answer.
Why? Why not? I mean, homos are hanged in Iran, and in Egypt, well, you will have to read these two posts.
I am gay, and a human being, but why is it that to some people it is so bad being gay that I am evil? What is it about being gay that is so bad? Or is it with the other person?
Here is one extract of what people realy think. Good Christian, well meaning, straight people.
A Republican member of the Oklahoma Legislature... told a political group that "the homosexual agenda is just destroying this nation" and poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than terrorism or Islam. "I'm not gay-bashing. But according to God's word that is not the right kind of lifestyle," Rep. Sally Kern of Oklahoma City said during an appearance before a group of Republicans.
"Studies show no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than a few decades," Kern says in the recorded comments. "It is not a lifestyle that is good for this nation."
In her recorded comments, Kern expressed concern that gay candidates "are winning elections" and control city councils in Arkansas, Maryland and other states.
A former teacher, Kern also said gays are teaching young public school children that their lifestyle is acceptable.
"We're not teaching facts and knowledge anymore. We're teaching indoctrination," Kern said.
"We have the gay-straight alliance coming into our schools. Kids are getting involved in these groups, their lives are being ruined," she said. "They are going after our young children, as young as two years of age, to try to teach them that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle.
"This stuff is deadly and it's spreading and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation."
This is disturbing stuff. I am gay. And a Ugandan. Besides having to live my life as well as I can, I scarcely believe that people are so convinced of these things that they go out of their way to tell lies which a straight thinking person would not believe. But they do believe them.Why do they tell lies about me? I have asked that of Ssempa, and of Nsaba Buturo, and am yet to get an answer that I can understand. Why do good Christian people justify lies for their hate of me? Yes, I have to find an answer to that question, because I will be able to answer it to understand why I am so much of an object of hate that they fail to see this log in their eyes.
Here is another.being gay makes him as bad as a mass murderer.
Watkins, from Cwmparc, Rhondda, south Wales, canvassed opinion on gay and lesbian people on the streets of Wales for the Week In Week Out investigation being shown tonight.
He said: "I'm gay, and today I'm completely open about it. But growing up here in the Rhondda, it was a complete nightmare."
Referring to the time he was in Steps, he said: "Despite my success, I couldn't be myself.
"In a pop group like Steps, you need to be three things: single, sexy and straight. I had to lie about the last one."
During filming, he interviewed Stephen Green, director of campaign group Christian Voice, and was told his lifestyle was sinful, making him no better than American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
The comparison to Dahmer came when Watkins told Mr Green he was "so happy" with being gay.
Mr Green also told Watkins he could become straight, quoted from the Bible that being gay is "vile", and promised to pray for him.When I was doing the round up of the news, i looked for a quote from a priest to cement my ire. Couldnt ask Pastor Ssempa. He has already given me a quote on this blog. A whole letter in fact, so I searched elsewhere
The Roman Catholic Bishop of Motherwell has claimed that the "gay lobby" attends Holocaust memorials "to create for themselves the image of a group of people under persecution."
"The homosexual lobby has been extremely effective in aligning itself with minority groups.
"It is ever present at the service each year for the Holocaust memorial, as if to create for themselves the image of a group of people under persecution."
And to put his criticism into a historical context, here are the facts
Between 5,000 and 15,000 gay men were held in concentration camps by the Nazis as members of an "anti-social group."
Historians estimate that 60% of them died while incarcerated.
After the war gay men were not recognised as victims of the Holocaust and many were re-imprisoned by the authorities because of the sexuality.
They were denied the reparations and state pensions available to other groups
Good Christian people. Hate wrapped in the leaves of prayer. Piously saying, I will pray for you, while they light the firewood of torture beneath my bound feet. Why do they do it?
No, friends. I am not Christian Bashing, as I used to. But why do people who have a religion they say is rooted in love, persecute me with lies that they make up?
Gosh, why am I whining?Princess and all, yeah, the world is a beautiful place, so I do like it. Sometimes I do find it hard to smile, and things like this do put me down. But of course I have to smile. Shit does happen, and even if it happens because I am gay, it still does happen.
What would not be ok would be for me to forget that it does happen. So, I will talk about it. And still grin and say, have a great evening, because life goes on!
