Next comes the religion factor. No religion supports homosexuality. So a gay or a lesbian couple cannot seek shelter in the cradle of a church, temple or mosque. When God has no issues with one’s sexual orientation, why are we as humans being so particular? The irony is that sexual intercourse and conception between a man and a woman too is termed as a sin in ‘Christianity’. A sin that is forgiven only when the child undergoes ‘baptism’. On an optimistic note, “Homosexuality is God’s way of insuring that the truly gifted aren’t burdened with children”, rightly said by Sam Austin.
Who knows…the guy you are best friends with maybe gay. The girl you once loved could be a lesbian. You cannot recognize these species because they are not aliens. They have the same genetic composition (barring transgenders), same physical appearance, same emotions……….they are normal humans, as normal as any of us. They lead normal lives. It’s just that they think differently, not because of a chemical imbalance in their brain, just out of personal choice and the ‘attraction’ factor.
So why discriminate and treat them as unusual?
