    I mean come on, at some point you gotta look at this whole thing reasonably. Where has all the LGBT acceptance in the West gotten us? There’s gay people in the White House, transgenders in the military, pride parades in every major city, and yet somehow we’re still arguing about whether gay people are oppressed because some states won’t allow them to teach children about anal sex.

    At some point you have to ask the question whether gay people are living in a state of feeling permanently oppressed not because of what Christians will or will not allow them to do, but as a result of their sinful lifestyle?

    FWIW, I’m not sure that putting them in prison is the right way to deal with the problem, but from a Christian perspective, there isn’t much anyone can do about it as long as they insist that being gay isn’t the problem, lack of tolerance is.

      This whole comment is a load of bigoted crap.

      Where has all the LGBT acceptance in the West gotten us?

      People being able to live their lives the way they want to without bothering anyone?

      some states won’t allow them to teach children about anal sex.

      You’re making shit up. Mad anal sex is not restricted to homosexuals you prude 😏

      but as a result of their sinful lifestyle?

      Sinful to you because you believe in your imaginary friend in the sky.

      lack of tolerance is

      Like your entire comment and when I dive deeper it’s everywhere in your comment history too

        Apparently it IS bothering people enough that they’re willing to go through the trouble to make laws about it.

        You’re making shit up. Mad anal sex is not restricted to homosexuals you prude 😏

        Doesn’t mean it’s appropriate to teach children about it.

          You’re just making things up about teaching about anal sex and crossdressing in school.

      Yes. We get it. You’re a bigot who thinks it’s okay to imprison gay people for life. You don’t need to keep telling us.

        From a Christian perspective, they are imprisoning and oppressing themselves because they don’t want to give up their sinful lifestyle yet want to have the same benefits as those who do. You want to have your cake and eat it, too.

        Why is it so difficult to understand that normal people don’t want to constantly be bothered or have to deal with gay people insisting they be allowed to do gay stuff around their kids?

            You can call me whatever you want but if being decent means allowing children to be taught about crossdressing and anal sex then I’d rather be a bigot.

              Yeah, that does make you a bigot. Just because the christian status quo wants to uphold strict gender roles and outdated puritan values doesn’t make those beliefs any less hateful. As a self proclaimed bigot, please tell me what do you think is so sinful about anal sex or cross dressing? And do you really think enslaving people because of those things is somehow less sinful? If that’s what your god calls justice I really don’t think we should take their hateful judgment seriously.

                I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you haven’t heard before, but from a Biblical perspective sex is for procreation and gender roles reflect the natural hierarchy of God.

                Also, it’s not slavery to give people incentives to do what’s right in the long run instead of what feels good in the moment. We also have laws against killing and stealing even though the vast majority of people recognizes that it’s wrong and would never do it. Or would you say that you feel enslaved by the existence of such laws?
