Do anti-gay people fear that more and more people will become gay?

Posted by   + Show Post

If homosexuality continues to be normalized as it has been, i.e. same sex marriage is becoming legal in more and more states, etc., will more and more people choose to be gay? Is this the fear of people who are anti-gay and who believe homosexuality is a choice?

ROFL - actually I'm a very well paid government contractor with a clearance. Lol so you don't take aspirin lol just saying because that is a drug. I don't believe in the devil and your prayers are not not welcome. My child is happily growing up as a Pagan where he understands doing no harm is paramount

Blessed Be.

Please read what I said, I said taking drugs is not good for your body - I've never done it but My religion doesn't deem it a bad thing or a sin. Just because your religion does, doesn't make it so for the entire world. How arrogant can you be.

Quoting myname27:


Quoting mikiemom:

Why are you so arrogant to think that what your religion holds as "sins" are thought of by others. My religion doesn't believe drugs and alcohol are sins so to speak but we do feel you should treat your body with respect. We also believe that we should honor mother earth. I bet you don't think you should be held to the ideal of my religion why should I be held to the ideals of yours?

Quoting myname27:

In my beliefs, it's sad that being gay is becoming the "norm". My children go to a very private school where they are taught about Christ. My children are taught that its sinful to be with the same sex just as it is sinful to get drunk or do drugs. I pray every day to end abortion and to stop legalizing gay marriages... To me... gay marriage is a joke and disrespectful. Idk about their sex lives but marriage is between a man and a woman! What's next? Are they going to legalize incest? Is it going to be okay to have father marry their daughter? Why not? This Gay marriage is a gateway to other disasters...

okay.... why would i take u seriousely? u think doing drugs is ok! hooray for you... not. i never said u had to believe what i believe. God did

okay, religion or not... DRUGS ARE BAD.... idc who u r... i cant believe would actually believe that! i am sorry but that is just sad. what person or RELIGION for that matter would say drugs are ok??? i seriously hope u dont teach ur children that... i am shocked



Drugs are not bad - They only become bad if people abuse them. Cannabis has a myriad of beneficial effects, many drugs such as narcotics are prescribed to treat various ailments.

Oh and way to completely ignore the point. Not everyone sees the things that christians feel are bad, wrong, immoral or sins as such. Most of what the christian religion makes things sins to control the population and benefit the usually men who are in charge, not to make their lives better

im done with u!  i dont associate with the likes of ppl like u. u r nothing! i am sure u already know that tho. u come from the devil and i pray for ur children

lol it dont matter if u dont accept my prayers. u have no power over God. plz dont write me back. i promise i wont read it.

This is what same-sex marraiges is causing

Here is a list of ways in which gay marriage can bring harm.

  1. It can bring huge financial and emotional stress.
    • Homosexuals can sue people who are exercising their religious beliefs. For example, a heterosexual married couple with children who do not want to rent a room in their own family household to homosexuals could be sued for discrimination based on "sexual orientation." This can incur significant financial and emotional stress upon the family, not to mention the "prior restraint" effect of the fear of being sued which results in a family not renting out a room.
  2. The health risks are enormous to themselves and others.
    • The fact is that homosexuals do not live as long as heterosexuals due to the health risks associated with the lifestyle, and billions of dollars are spent annually in health care for them. See Statistics on HIV/AIDS and health related issues
    • But the HIV/AIDS epidemic is not only in the homosexual community. It has crossed over to the heterosexual community. 
    • Whether or not you want to say that HIV/AIDS is a homosexual disease, the fact is that it is highly prevalent among the gay and lesbian community due to their great number of sex partners. The collateral damage to the rest of society, as far as health risks, cannot be denied.
  3. Gay Marriage means having the morals of the minority forced upon the majority.
    • This can also be said in the reverse. Either way, there is a problem. Normally, morals should not be forced on anyone, though there are exceptions. We force morals on others by preventing them from stealing, raping, murdering, etc. So, it is not automatically wrong to force morals on someone. But the issue then becomes what is morally right and wrong in the first place, and altering morals in a society definitely causes stress.
    • The percentage of homosexuals in society is less than 5%, yet it is being forced upon the other 95% of society in movies, TV, literature, and political periods. See Statistics on the percentage of the population that are homosexual and lesbian.
  4. Gay Marriage means a redefinition of sexual morality, and with it other sexually related practices will be affected and this can be harmful.
    • See the article Collateral damage effect as a result the change in sexual morals for a discussion on the increase in pedophilia, pornography, child pornography, prostitution, and sex trafficking that are occurring in the world. These increases are not due to an increase in conservative sexual morals, but a reduction of conservative sexual morals.
  5. Gay Marriage reduces the number of children born in society and we need a stable population base to operate properly. Therefore, society can be harmed.
  6. Gay Marriage affects people spiritually.
    • Don't assume that people's spiritual beliefs are irrelevant. People consider spiritual issues to be extremely important, and the stress imposed on religious people by forcing them to "accept" and/or support homosexual practice and/or intimidate them into silence harms a person's spiritual and emotional health.
  7. It forces government to get involved in changing laws which automatically affect everyone in society.
    • Homosexuality is being force fed to our youth via the education system.
    • Civil unions are being recognized by employers which effect co-workers, money payouts, work time, etc.
  8. It exposes adopted children within potential homosexual unions to ridicule from others.

Maybe more will choose to be gay. I might not have chosen to be straight if I thought I had the option to date and marry a woman.

This is the equivalent of saying Warren Jeff's marriages to teen girls is the consequence of Christian marriage.

They know this and it scares the hell out of some people.

Quoting turtle68:

more and more people will be openly gay....they have always been there.


As sexuality has become more socially accepted...there are a lot more exploring other avenues, so bisexuality leading to permanently gay lifestyles.
