To put my thoughts simply

Posted by Ddude , in philosophy Sep 17 2012 · 193 views

There's a difference between saying "I disagree with you, you're wrong" and "I have a different opinion, but there's nothing wrong with having your own." I disagree with a lot of things, but if the person I disagree with has an opinion which they can defend and justify, I'm willing to listen. It's an unfortunate fact that most Christians fall into the "Ready, Fire, Aim" category of judging homosexuality immediately (by virtue of not realizing that they need to actual interpret what they read in the Bible rather than take everything literally) rather than make an effort to understand why someone is homosexual in the first place. Personally though, I make an effort to understand someone's opinion rather than immediately judge it for being different than mine.

Would anybody like to offer a rebuttal? Because I have nothing to do for the next half hour :P

No rebuttal because I agreeee.

I agree definitely, however, I feel also that people very often instantly assume that people who disagree with homosexuality being a good thing are hateful, bigots, insensitive, etc. Honestly, in the debate I quite sympathized with Velox and Grochi... I dislike intensely, however, how their stance has been foully twisted so that people think that they are saying that it's a sin to have same sex attraction... a sentiment both they and I disagree with.

Yeah, rebuttal. If someone summons Leviticus in attack mode, they usually forget to tap Jesus and discard him.

But the problem is that you are being homophobic, bigoted, and insensitive when you say you disagree with homosexuality. Not only that, you are in gross violation of BZP rules of tolerating and respecting other BZP members when you do so. Deevs has stated so himself.

This is not a hard concept.

Seriously, how many times do I have to say this?

This:

is true.

So stop. Or lose your blogs. That is that. Entry locked.
