With all the issues facing this country, why is gay marriage even being discussed or considered. Who cares? Seriously? But let’s take a moment and think about this logically.
Any idea how many gays there are in the U.S. 1%? 5%? 10%? How about 3%… 3% of the population have gay tendencies. And let’s go another step deeper. Of those 3% how many want to be married in the traditional sense? 25%, 50%… ? I am going to suggest less than 50%. So now the number of people in the entire country becomes 1.5% wanting marriage rights.
So… for the sake of 1.5% of all Americans, we are seeing protests across the country. For the sake of 1.5% of all Americans we are having States debate this issue, we have States adding propositions to voting ballots on this topic… we have people ranting and raving about the outrage of not having the same rights of traditional heterosexual couples. Again I ask… WHO CARES?
I see no reason to give gays rights to marriage in the traditional sense. I see homosexual lifestyles as abnormal and there is no reason to sanctify abnormal behavior.
Lastly, homosexuality while I believe it is genetic, does not mean it should be practiced. To me homosexuality is no different than any other genetic defect. Take for example mental illness… bi-polar, manic depressive etc. Each is genetic, and each is treated as a disease. What about diabetes… it is genetic, and is treated as a disease. In both cases I cite, the disease is abnormal therefore is treated in an attempt to regain normalcy. Homosexuality is a disease, not a lifestyle and should be treated as a disease. It should be avoided, resisted and if possible treated with medications to help these people return to a normal lifestyle.
And please don’t waste my time trying to suggest homosexuality is merely another lifestyle that harms no one, and should be accepted by the other 98.5% of the population. If homosexuality were normal, none of us would exist. Enough said…
