Do homosexuals need to be protected from religious bigotry?Page 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

that may lead to the prosecution of those of tender sensibilities should they display persecution to those with unsavoury abilities.


What on earth are unsavoury abilities ????
The ability to take a large fruit up the bottom?
You say man on man action, so presumably mutual muff munching is allowable ... ? I'm only asking???
Me personally, as long as they kept their bodily emissions off the flock wallpaper and didn't damage the silk screen painting of the Blue Boy above the bed, then I couldn't care less...

erm isn't there a lil thing along the lines of "the management reserve the right to refuse etc etc" with which they don't really have to explain themselves as it's their choice and on the subject of choice why is it that people feel they can take other people to court for not making the same choices as them? aren't rights supposed to be equal for all? just to make a point including single white straight males? who it seems to me from the perspective of being one have the least rights of anyone in this 'oi, i'm being hard done by, protect me at great cost" society we seem to be living in....

My answer's simple - people have a right to equal treatment, and that right is an inalienable human right which supercedes all religious duties

In a similar fashion, the right not to be murdered overrules all religious duties to kill non-believers

Giving a right to treat gays as not equal in rights to straights to the religious community is almost a permit to harrass and villify

There's nothing unsavoury about homosexuality. It might seem a somewhat weird idea to heterosexual people (and to be quite honest no I can't see the appeal in it) but its the normal situation for about 1 in every 15 men (I understand the ratio's different for women but can't remember what it is..)

Anything that occurs naturally at that level has to be considered not just ordinary but normal
I once heard a gay rights campaigner say "gay issues are everyone's issues" and he was right. We wouldn't allow our Christians to persecute our Jews, or our Moslems to harrass our Sikhs

there are probably more gays in the UK than Jews and Sikhs put together. They deserve the same protections.

used to know some weird guy who used to live in shared housing, think he was in care and his favourite trick was to goto the toilet in buckets all over the place...seemed to him as natural has having gay sex....

some people not like gays esp if it goes against their beliefs, and they can choose not to sell stuff to them, no-one should be forced to sell stuff to them

Christianity has done far more harm throughout history then homosexuality ever has.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd get rid of the God botherers. Just imagine what a tolerant and harmonious world we'd live in without organsied religion.

The thing about tolerance towards religious beliefs is that society has to decide where to draw the line.

If a man held a religious belief that he could kill his wife if she committed adultery we'd find that unnaceptable as a society and wouldn't allow it.

The problem that any society faces is where to draw that line as it is purely a matter of opinion. 50 years ago this issue would never have been discussed as homosexuality wasn't tolerated by society at large.

However, times change and even religion has to adapt to this.
