I am a traditional Christian.
I have been attacked by homosexuals.
But, I believe in forgiveness.
And many people, especially people in the ‘gay agenda,’ would like my vote in support of homosexual relationships.
SO, I end up in a difficult position. On the one-side, I believe homosexuality to be wrong. And I believe it has little benefit to society. Further, most studies I have read indicated my belief to be at least rational. And many studies show homosexuality is not a benefit to society.
But, on the other-side, I am a realist. Homosexuality is here to stay. The homosexual lobby is powerful. And I believe in forgiveness. So, being kind to the ‘gay agenda’ is not a bad thing to me.
However, I have always required one standard as I discuss any topic. I expect fairness. On this subject, I expect fairness to our children. And especially fairness to our boys.
As I write this, and you read this, about 300,000 boys will become victims of homosexual predators.
Many people will expect a separation between homosexual predators and true pedophiles. OK. About 100,000 boys will be the victims of true pedophiles.
Those numbers scare me.
So, as I am asked to vote for homosexual relationships, I ask that our children will be protected. And I do not expect I will vote to change the definition of ‘marriage,’ only that homosexuals are entitled to some legal recognition of their relationships.
So, can I expect people pushing for gay relationships to agree that we should protect children from predators?
What do you think?
