Choosing to engage in homosexual behavior is wrong, yes, but so is choosing to smoke cigarettes, so is choosing to exceed the speed limit.

Let me get this right.  You are comparing choosing to exceed the speed limit to someone who "chooses" to be gay or lesbian?  Danny, please enlighten us how you "choose" to be heterosexual?  Do you think you can also "choose" to be gay one night...just for fun...just to see what it is like? 

There are tons of people (and particularly conservative christian orgs) that are obsessed with homosexuality.

* Focus on the Family:  4730 articles located when searching their site for homosexuality

*tradionational values coalition: thousands upon thousands of articles.  These people obsess more about gay people than gay people do.  They’ve also included intersex in their sights: http://www.traditionalvalues.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1605  This article will give links to their other hateful propaganda.  Ironically, had they done their homework, they would have discovered that Eric Vilain is not a friend of those with intersex conditions nor can he be called an ally as most intersex organizations have spoken out against his work.

*Pat Robertson and Falwell blaming 9/11 on gays.

* Sen. Santorum comparing same sex/gender marriage as a homeland security problem: http://www.newsday.com/news/nationworld/nation/ny-usgay153893237jul15,0,5652325.story?coll=ny-top-headlines  His quote from Newsday and other sources: "I would argue that the future of our country hangs in the balance because the future of marriage hangs in the balance," said Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. ".....Isn’t that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?"  Never mind them terrorists, just deal with them queer people and the ’homeland’ will be safe.

Need more?  I’ll be happy to put it out there.

In my earlier post, I said I would link to an article that recently came out, but got home from work much later than I thought I would.  I’ll dig it out and post it tomorrow. I was planning on filing the latest studies I have this weekend anyways.

It’s not a choice.  Sure, you can claim a choice in that someone who is gay or lesbian can chose to enter a heterosexual marriage and be miserable (and many do) but those who prefer to be happy tend to recognize good choices and bad choices---the bad one being unhappy in a heterosexual marriage, the good one being true to ones heart and self.

By the way, familial and religious beliefs that homosexuality is a choice and bad is also believed to be the leading cause of young adult and teen suicide in this country.  This has been put forth in study after study about teen suicide. 

Claims that disputing that homosexuality is a choice is bigotry is more so than claiming that gays and lesbians is less steeped in bigotry and intolerance?  How so?

Can you name one positive character portrayed on television that espouses the viewpoint that homosexuality is a choice?

Can you?
