Re: Gay brains are different
Why do you assume that a person always has to "fuck" someone? Just because I said they shouldn't have sex with men doesn't mean I'm saying they have to have sex with women. Catholic priests swear to a life of celibacy, and the ones who actually hold to it are as happy or happier than you or me. Why would homosexuals be incapable of doing the same? They would not be living a lie.

A straight man would NEVER do that, and if he did, he would never be happy, because he would be forcing himself to become something he wasn't made to be.
What I don't get is why people don't understand that, YES, you can force yourself to suppress your NATURAL impulses and ignore your homosexuality, but you will NEVER be happy with yourself. And all because "homosexuality is a sin". Fuck it being a "sin", it's something homosexuals can't help no matter what they do. Even if they TRY to be heterosexual, that doesn't change the fact that they are not heterosexual. Forcing themselves to be heterosexual would be living a lie.
Tell me, would you be happy living a lie?
No, I didn't think so.
Let's get one thing clear here:
I'm not saying people shouldn't be homosexual, if that's what they want then let them do as they will, I won't try to force them to do otherwise.
What I am saying is that if a homosexual person believed in God and wanted to live a life "glorifying to God", that person would have to do what I've said.
Before you attack this statement saying they would be unhappy, understand that I said "wanted to live a life...", if living "purely" is what they want, they will be happy. Same goes for me with porn. If I ever think "screw it" and decide to look at porn, I always regret it because I'm not living to glorify God. However, if I resist the temptation to look at porn, I'm happy.
It's all about the Christian mind-set, and I'd honestly be surprised if you understood, let alone agreed with, what I've been getting at in the past few paragraphs.
If you're talking to me: I never said it wasn't "right", I just said no one had said anything either way.

Since you brought it up though, from a secular view point, you are 100% correct and that's exactly how I would reason it were I not Christian. Since I am, though, I'd have to disagree with you because from my perspective it "hurts" the person themselves, just like any other sin would hurt themselves. We can throw logic at this all we want, we just have to differing views and won't be able to convince each other otherwise.
It's not really that you don't know what you're talking about, you just misunderstood the main argument of what we're talking about.
