Says who? Being "Normal" usually means being boring anyways.....

 

I'm happy for him. No one should have to hide who they are just to feel comfortable or be accepted by people.

Hitman just wants to provoke people with his statements. 

 

I would imagine coming out isn't an easy thing to do, especially in his position.

That's the only problem I have. Gay people aren't being lynched or segregated for their lifestyle. Bullied? Yes for some..... But people get bullied everyday for various other reasons.

Apart from Hitman's rampant homophobia, this has been an interesting and productive discussion. Keep it up.

Segregated? Does the movement against gay marriage count? -- Lynched?

History tells horrible stories about how homosexuals were treated and/or slaughtered.

And the most recent story I remember reading about a gay being "lynched" was Mathew Shepard.

 

I think the reason some of us are comparing gay to race, is that neither is a choice, and there are people who wish to do harm to a person just because of their sexual orientation and/or skin color.

I am going to come out right now and say that I do not support gay marriage or the lifestyle. However, I DO NOT judge LGBT: it is THEIR decision, and I have no place to judge others - their personal preferences are between them, their families, friends, and God.

 

I do not support the lifestyle and gay marriage because it goes against my religion. As Christians, we are commanded by Christ to NOT judge people for ANYTHING and to love others, no matter who they are, even people like Hitler. I apologize to any LGBT person that has been offended by a Christian Smiley Sad If they ever do say something like that, remind them of their failures to meet God's expectations.

 

Please do not start a religious debate over this post either, please. Such debates are not allowed on the PlayStation forums and almost always lead to flame wars, trolling, etc.

It always makes me shudder when I see "Christians" saying things like "God hats gays," or worse.

 


Those people have a name: Westboro Baptist Church. They are the perfect example of when Christ said it is better to be a non-Christian than a hypocritical Christian.

I'm sorry but I just don't think it's comparable. Sure, neither being black or gay is a choice but that's where the similarities end. I can't sit here and say not allowing gay people to get married (For the record, I am for Gay Marriage) is comparable to Jim Crow laws, Anti-Miscegenation laws, Laws preventing blacks to vote, laws saying blacks count at 3/5 of a person and The Dred Scott decision (Which stated all black people aren't US citizens and therefor had no constitutional rights).
