In my U.S. History class this year we haven''t talked much about current politics so I''m pretty ignorant on the subject of gay rights and such.

My teacher did bring up why some people argue that people can discriminate against others/deny the same rights to others because of their sexual orientation. He says that one argument is that because some people believe homosexuality is a choice, those rights aren''t necessarily protected. The same cannot be done to someone because of something that isn''t their choice (gender, religion, race, etc.). Well, I was really surprised when I heard him say that religion is still protected under all this. I was surprised because religion is a choice. I was brought up Catholic, but that doesn''t mean I can''t become a Buddhist or Jewish or something.

So if being a homosexual doesn''t guarantee you the same rights that being black or white or a woman does, then why should being Catholic/Jewish/whatever??

Again, sorry if it''s obvious that I don''t have much or even any knowledge on the subject, we haven''t touched on this yet and I really don''t read into this as much as I should.

If you want to annoy him, then say, "If homosexuality is a choice, so is heterosexuality, therefore no one deserves rights."

People forget sexual orientation works both ways. It's either entirely a choice, or entirely predetermined.

I''m in Canada and we allow homosexuality so I''m as ignorant as you are.

You''re right, religion is as much of a "choice" as people think being homosexual is. Howerver, I don''t think being gay is much of a choice. I mean, if it was a choice, who would be afraid of "coming out"?

There is no good reason to be against civil rights for gay people.  If being gay goes against your religion, then don''t do it.  My parents are big into the Christian thing, and even they get that.  Christians have no more business making life difficult for gay people than Jews and Muslims would have making life difficult for people who eat pork.

if it''s not a choice, then how does it happen? it can''t be genetic or it would be bred out of people. I don''t think it should be legal in marraige, just because that is one man and one woman binding themselves together forever towards the goal of reproduction. that''s what it has been since the beginning of time

I beleive that being homesexual is wrong, but that we shouldn''t discriminate against people because of it. I mean, we except people who lie and steal. Homesexuallity is no more of a sin then that.

Sorry, that belongs on the Religous board. I see Christianity as the way of life. But yeah, people shouldn''t totally be against gay people.

Hmm, for some strange reason I don''t think lying and stealing is like being gay. Being a homosexual is NOT against the law... not yet, at least. -_-;

Let me ask you this Dillion, did you choose to be heterosexal? Or did you do it because it was what your body told you to do?

Personally for me, my body is just attracted to guys. Same way for gay people. They are just attracted to their gender, and they shouldn''t be shunned for that.

Homesexuals should  have as much rights as straights, whites, blacks etc.  Homosexuals are humans as well.  If any other race has right then regardless of what your sexuality is you have those same rights too.

look being gay is not like your religion...religion you can choose but when you are gay you can not help who you are atracted to.....i feel bad for gay people because they do not have the same rights us straight people (which is wrong) they are just as much human beings as we are and should be treated so...
