Can't Think of a Title « Social Issues »

Great post by one of my favorite thinkers over here. I really think Sean should be a leading voice in our society, and will become so if he chooses that path...

One thing I wish I could get across clearly to the rest of you want to emphasize and make absolutely clear:
1) I don't approve of homosexual behavior; I cannot condone or approve of something I feel is sinful behavior.
2) It doesn't matter if I don't approve, any more than it matters that I don't approve of people trying to get rich using the Stock Market (which I also consider sinful), or that I consider the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be heretical.
3) Disapproval of a belief or behavior does not equate to disapproval of the person.
4) Get over it, and get over yourself. (getting over myself, first)

Nathan, thanks as always--totally blushing--but if what I've said is all you need to qualify as worthy of being a leading voice in American society nowadays, we're in deep trouble.

While I wholeheartedly agree with your points, Nathan (and I am sure a drop of grace is included with each), living where I currently do, the last part of number 2 is on the forefront of my mind, everyday and in most conversations.

Rae, your comment made me glance at my post again, and that made me realize that perhaps the line "get across to the rest of you" is a tad defensive, dontcha think? [grin]
That was in anticipation of someone getting irritated with my opinion of homosexuality...obviously, I have a lot more people than just homosexuals stopping by here...and it's not just homosexual activists who have taken me to task for some of my opinionated comments. Ah, well. In any case, the defensive comment is really only directed to anyone who might be irritated with me for any opinion I share.
