To all those with a religious objection to homosexuality

Kang Lin's picture

As a homosexual, I was born gay. As people of religion, you chose your prejudice. I would have thought that the followers of an ever present God would agree that what has always been trumps that which has been acquired. In any sound moral system (Note: I say moral, not religious, for religion is inherently separate from morality), the right to be is greater than the right to choose, for to choose, one must first be.

However, morality historicall

However, morality historically develops most often from some sort of religious thought. There are philosophical speculations and ideas about morality, but for the most part, morality has been a product of religious belief. The funny thing is, morals differ widely between people of the same religious beliefs. Look at your average Muslim vs. someone in al Qaeda, or your average Christian vs. Pat Robertson. Completely different.

Objection

The way I see it, religious people probably don't want to believe people are born gay because that would mean their wonderful god MADE people gay. That, to them, is unacceptable because they are so completely blinded by the homophobic teachings of the church.
