From a discussion with a young woman I met recently, I learned why young people today are so tolerant of homosexuality -- ie, why they are "homo-philic" if you would allow. (That is, I feel confident that what I learned from her can be generalized to the whole Generation X, as it were.) In short, young people today often explore the exciting realm of promiscuity. They do not want a stern black-clad Puritan telling them that their behavior is unhealthy, dangerous, near-sighted, and (coincidentally) contrary to the wisdom God has taught mankind through His God-Breathed Scriptures. They want to shield their sexual behaviors behind the "morality" of "what consenting adults do in the privacy of their homes is fine". And they feel that if the laws go so extremely far as to protect homosexuality, then they must protect their own behavior. Therefore, young Americans are "homophilic" because they, in effect, wish to shield their own immorality behind the abomination of homosexuality. I understand this is a sensitive subject for which I appologize in advance.
