I had to say something.
I do not for one second believe that Homosexualty compares in any way to sexual addiction or pedophilia or any other addiction for that matter. Have you dealt with a severe addict in your life and a homosexual person in your life? I have. In very close situations and relations as a matter of fact. It's like comparing dinner at the Claim Jumper to dinner at McDonalds. You just can't.
I believe that god has given us a standard as well. A standard above any other and that is "love one another as I have loved you". I believe this to be the greatest way to become like god.
I also believe that god have given us the means to overcome temptation. I do not believe that, used in the right term, Homosexuality is a temptation.
I know gay men who never have and never will experience arousal from a women. Is it right for them to live their life with a women who wants and needs to feel sexual attractive? I don't believe so. I think it would cause unecessary heartache for both parties.
When I said in my earlier post that I believe life is too short to live suffering and that we should live our lives to the best of our ability in happiness, someone made the comment that by that logic it would be okay for a man to cheat on his wife because it made him happy. That is absolutely wrong and I don't believe that for on second. That would be done in the knowledge of causing others intentional pain. I also believe prop 102 also causes some serious intentional pain.
It may not say you can not be with the person you love but it does say, you can be with the person you love but know that it is wrong and ungodly in the site of the law and as human beings we will never recognize you two as significant others. Therefore you can not and may never reap the benefits of having a spouse and someone to share the rest of your life with. If you die and you have no written will your significant other won't be entitled to anything of yours, including the children that you have raised together.
I can not vote for that. Or will not, think what you will.
I remember being single and not having a significant other. A mother's, sisters, brothers, father's, even heavanly father's comfort does not compare to having a physical significant other to tell you that everything is going to be okay and that you are loved.
I know people that if them chosing to share in this kind of comfort, in which they can only experience with a member of the same sex, means that they are not going to be where I am when I die then I don't want to be there either.
