Homosexual lifestyle is extremely harmful

Posted: Sunday, March 11, 2007

A question many people have is, what harm is it to allow same-sex couples the same benefits married heterosexual couples have? Or what harm is there in allowing gays to fill authoritative positions in society who act as role models for our children?

The answer is that it is extremely harmful to our children and society as a whole. If our children have role models who are gay, they will think being gay is something that is acceptable by society.

It has become a trend to call it an "alternative lifestyle" or one's "sexual orientation." Others refer to it as a gay lifestyle, according to an article by Farjm Majd, "The Homosexual Relationship."

Gay activists are trying to take the focus off the fact that relationships of this sort are sexually deviant and are placing the focus on tolerance, acceptance, civil rights, adoption, same-sex benefits and homosexual marriage. Majd also states that, in effect, the underlying relationship has been accepted as valid as a result of gay activists claiming their movement has a cultural basis rather than an immoral, unrestrained sexual foundation. Therein lies the deceit to their agenda.

A lot of people buy into the gay movement, convinced it's basis is in diversity rather than immorality, and any negative remarks or actions against this movement are labeled as discriminatory or hateful. The reasoning behind this push toward redefining their disorder is so that it will be accepted by society under the guise of a culture for them to promote acceptance and to obtain protection under the laws against discrimination. Gays equate themselves to certain minority groups who are protected under the civil rights movement, but their movement has nothing to do with diversity and everything to do with immorality.

It is extremely dangerous when gay activists promote and publicize harmful behavior to our youth who are extra impressionable. Greater harm is caused by homosexuals who are in positions of authority because children and young adults look up to people in authority as leaders and role models.

To accept the homosexual lifestyle as a culture and to cater to their demands will result in a breakdown of morals in society. It will bring irreparable harm to our children. How much are we willing to accept before we finally recognize the real danger involved?
