    If this weren't so serious, it would be almost luaghable, and the title line would be a great name for a new soap opera.

    Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but it seems like every day bring another revelation involving another part of our culture that is turning "gay!"

    I read with sadness that Marvel Comics has decided to tap into the gay community, which shouldn't be a surprise to any of us.

    We are being bombarded [beaten into social submission] with the social mantra of "tolerance" towards those whom God supposedly made gay. Be it our school systems adding gay history to their curriculum, all of my television shows doing stories that support the poor [bullied] gay people, the President supporting gay marriage, the military removing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, to state after state making gay marriage legal, those of us who are offended with the government shoving gay rights down our throats, need to show our disapproval by going to the polls and making wholesale changes in the men and women, we send to DC, state capitols and local city halls.

    We also need to plead with God for a revival of gigantic proportions. If we don't stop this now, in ten years, you will not recognize your once proud nation.

    Don't get me wrong....if those who wish to live in direct opposition to God's word want to be joined as a couple, then that is probably a right this Constitution guarantees them as an American. I just don't like these folks taking the beachhead of the sanctity of marriage [between a man and woman] by force. I don't appreciate my state legislatures incorporating gay history into our children daily studies. I don't like teachers having to help children be more tolerant of others on my tax dollar.

    Yes, I know my kids can attend a private school, but I fear that even private schools will one day be made to accept and teach the third sex themes. I fear the church being told that they will have to conduct a ceremony between a man and man or woman and woman...or lose their tax status.

    When will all this insanity stop? When all of us are one big happy family....:tear:

    It's not going to stop. The world will get worse and worse until Christ returns. What we're seeing take place is an indicator of the world's spiritual thermometer--and it's not pretty.

    The Roman empire was an evil society. They had much the same stuff we have today. There is nothing new under the sun. Yet, Christ was born under the Roman empire and God's will was done. We can take heart from that.

    My daughter got married last weekend. One of the many days we were doing this or that to prepare for the wedding, I got surprised by something that happened, and not much surprises me anymore.

    We were addressing invitations, and reading out of a guide on the internet as to how to print the invitations. Believe it or not, there was a section on how to print an invitation for a same sex male and female marriage. Then, later in the day, we were reading about the pecking order for the receiving line after the wedding, and you guessed it, there was a pecking order for same sex marriage.

    It is not just the act of two men or women getting married. The action permeates every aspect of everyday life, kind of like the leaven of the Pharisees. It weaves in and out of every situation, until it becomes normal to encounter such an idea. For example, next time I read about printing invitations, it will not be a surprise.

    This is the focus of the destruction, accepting it as normal in our nation and making it the law of the land. That is the difference between now and in the past.

    For decades there was a soap opera by that very name.

    I don't know if it still on TV or not.

    What really makes this all worse, in my mind, is that a long time ago, before it became cool to accept the gay/lesbian lifestyle, is the concept of a deviant lifestyle becoming accepted as simply an alternative lifestyle, like being a vegetarian or other such way of living.

    The concern from the beginning was that if it became accepted as an alternative lifestyle, what would happen next? The answer was forming...accepting pedophilia as a choice, that some people are naturally attracted to children and it is an alternative lifestyle.

    That is now happening. It started happening years ago, but it is much more acceptable now to be more open about such attractions. There are message boards out, very carefully worded, which are open to the pubic for "people who love children" to go and socialize with each other, get advice, etc.. When I owned ran a website before that had a segment on it to help gays and lesbians out of that lifestyle, that topic came up and we (the owner and I) followed a link to such a board, where we found a man asking for advice on his "love" for a boy that was related to him. He was being advised to not pursue a relationship with the boy...because he was family. Already, they're establishing their "morality" and trying to make this look like it is simply an alternative lifestyle.

    I wonder how long until that also becomes accepted? It's a scary thought. Once a country starts down that path of accepting any type of sin in one area as normal and okay and not wrong, everyone else wants to join in and have their sinful desires also accepted as okay.

    I'll continue failing to understand why people aren't more outspoken about this issue and how blind they are to where it leads and what it opens our society up to.

    Blech.

    You Are so Correct.....

    Years ago, when I worked as an administrator/director of a local drug and alcohol treatment center, I attended a director's meeting in LA, and the speaker told us that gay men preferred younger partners to avoid the being affected by AIDS.

    The boy-man (pedophilia) prediction of this speaker, back in the mid 1980s, has come to be. Which is all the more reason for me to be totally against gays being allowed to adopt? There I said it. I do not believe that man-on-man, and woman-on-woman relationships are all that healthy for children. And yes, I agree that man/woman marriages can be just as harmful to kids, but the gay relationships and adoptions seem to be riskier for children.

    How sad!!!! :tear::tear::tear:

    The tragedy is that apart from God's perspective it is not more than a case of civil rights. If one does not accept the Bible as standard then it is a violation of rights to give some people the right to marry and others not. There is such a low regard for God's way now that the perspective is totally different. From their perspective the question 'Why should those two people gain certain rights and we not be permitted to do the same?' makes sense.

    It is time for government to get out of the marrying business totally. Set up some type of civil agreement that establishes a legal private partnership.

    Let marriage, which is God's plan, be handled by the churches, synagogues, mosques and whatever.

    Here I have chosen not to be a government marriage agent. A couple goes to the local registry office and signs the legal documents to establish that legal union. Sometime shortly after that they get married in a church ceremony. Folks don't consider their wedding the day they established a legal contract, but when the church recognised their marriage.

    Why is the state involved in something that is God's plan?

    Since I never watched the "soaps" back then or now, I don't know if that TV program is still on either.

    OTOH, reading about what the other posters in this thread have revealed, I get the feeling that instead of "As The World Turns," maybe we should say, "As Our Hearts Churn."

    Please take your own advice and not bow to them. They are homosexuals. The next time someone attempts to beat you into social submission by insisting you call them gay, just say no. I believe you will find that the stick they beat with is quite small and rotten. They choose to have sexual relations with peopel of the same sex. Many of them are not happy, joyful, or gay.

    I am new here but there is a sticky post saying:

    no threads dealing with human sexuality will be allowed in an open public forum

    So should not this thread be moved?
