Response to The Rise Of Europe’s Religious Right:
I have nothing against gay people, but I wish they practiced their sexuality in private. Can’t they love people of the same gender behind closed doors? Why do they have to flaunt their sexuality in our faces? What if young children are exposed to this homosexual lifestyle and decide they want to be like these people and hate everyone who isn’t them? Think of the children!!
See how this sounds from another perspective? No one should be forced to hide their lifestyle behind closed doors so long as it isn’t hurting anyone else, no matter what that lifestyle is. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to pay attention to it, you don’t have to be around people who practice it, you don’t have to give them the time of day. Rather than trying to legislate or control what other people might do that might offend you, control your own response and be the grown up in that situation.
