Excellent comments from re_nortex and the OlLine Rebel.
After making my response above to re_nortex, I started thinking along the lines of Rebel. Sometimes men and women decide for various reasons not to marry - disappointment, broken hearts, not much sex drive, other interests or missions in life that are more important, and so on.
And same sex companionship or friendship does NOT automatically mean sexual perversion, although now the pervs and their assistants would like us to think so.
And I agree with re_nortex that homosexual behavior even if discreet is not normal, not natural, not benign and is a grave character and behavioral flaw and immoral. A person suffering from same sex disorder is to be pitied and offered help; there are many organizations both secular and religious based that help homosexuals become free of their perverted attractions or at least be able to control their behavior.
And if a homosexual does not want to change, nothing can help them; and if they want to force their perversion on society, they need to be put back into the closet.
We are now on the edge of a precipice. What happens next, whatever way it goes, is not going to be pretty or easy. And the precipice is not just about the homo agenda being forced on us, but it is a not insignificant part of the leftist tyranny.
And I must concur that this has been a very rewarding exchange of thoughts with some interesting perspectives that made me reevaluate my own thoughts in a new light. The sodomites have so spoiled the landscape that we ofttimes reflexively -- and wrongly -- think the worst when we see two men together.
I appreciate everyone airing their well-considered opinions on this. And since I'm a big fan of peanuts as a snack (and will be consuming plenty this Sunday while watching a certain football game that comes around this time of year), looks like George Washington Carver is off the hook! :-)
