Interesting, but what difference would it make if he were gay? Did he force his lifestyle upon you and society? Did he flaunt about with his “partner”? Dd he try to indoctrinate children? Dd he try to change existing marriage laws?
No? Then why dig? Just curiosity?
I'll respect you if you'll do likewise for me. So I kindly ask that you use a term other than "gay" to describe those who are this sort of sexual deviant. I'm 70 and recall a better era when "Deck the Halls" could be sung without a snicker with the lyrics, "don we now our gay apparel". I'd like to see the word "gay" restored to its rightful meaning before it was sullied by the homosexual lobby.
That said, it is mostly to satisfy to my curiosity since there are conflicting narratives about George Washington Carver. And, as I've stated elsewhere in this thread, with "Black History Month" approaching, I'd simply like to know if an individual portrayed as a hero was actually a sodomite.
I'll confess that I take a harder line than many (even some here on FR) regarding this issue. Even if one is discreet about the practice, it's still an abomination in the eyes of Almighty God. And I think if Carver were a deviant, he could have sought redemption from Christ, repented and changed his lifestyle. My hope is that he was merely eccentric or an "odd duck" as we used to say.
In closing, I thank you for your thought-provoking response and I hope that, with my candor, I've provided an explanation.
