    Without researching her reason, which I assume she has given, my only conclusion can be that, yes, she is living a lie.

    God's Word (The Bible) says, God created Adam and then he created Eve. He didn't create, Adam and Steve. At some point in the person's life and for whatever reason, the person chooses to be a homosexual. And I didn't write the book.

    God needed an Adam and Eve to meet his goal of populating the earth. Now that the earth is reaching the overpopulation point, what does it matter?

    Ya know.... it might be a replicant disease....

    Humans are a long way from perfection as they were in Eden.... and as copies of DNA kinda genetically wanders and mutates just a bit each successive generation, these aberrations appear.

    To each their own but don't bullhorn it or parade it in my face or change my life or way of thinking just because you are the way you are and choose that life or way of living.

    The appearance of a homosexual individual may be the result of greater fitness (reproductive ability) in female siblings of the homosexual's parent. Therefore, the lack of fitness in the homosexual would not be as detrimental for survival of the family's future generations. Nature doesn't care about the individual but the entire population.
    I am not sure this cleared anything up for you.
    It seemed like a novel concept that of course required more research. Gosh, I am going to have to find that paper.
    Best regards.

    Oh, God talks to you and told you that?

    To each, his/her own.

    For those using the Bible as a reference, may I remind you that it was written by man in a time when they were stoning lepers, cripples, and women to death for outlandish things. I've rarely read the Bible for a host of reasons, but one thing I can definitely say is that I've never needed the Bible to teach me how to respect and love other people. I learned that on my own. People don't need the Bible to teach them about respect and being a good person....nobody is born a savage until they pick up a Bible, and then suddenly they're speaking poetry. That doesn't happen. The Bible has also been used, I agree sinfully and erroneously, to justify some of the worst atrocities in human history. Preachers in the Middle Ages, for instance, were preaching scripture to the gathered masses while people burned to death at the stake for something as simple as having a mole on their shoulder "identifying" them as a witch. So speaking for myself, I've rarely taken the Bible seriously about anything. Rarely, but not never.

    Might I recommend a book called "Loving Homosexuals As Jesus Would", by a Christian man named Chad W. Thompson. He's the founder of "Inqueery", which is an organization that addresses homosexuality on High School and College campuses, and he's also the former media specialist for the Iowa Family Policy Center. It might give you a fresh perspective, if you are interested in broadening your mind.

    Why are a bunch of straight men so obsessed over what gay men are doing in their personal lives???? I don't get it. I have my own love life, children, bills, job, etc to worry about, so I don't have time to care about what people do that doesn't affect me or anyone else. Get a life already....

    I worked in gay area's. They cause no problems for Police, pay their tax's, obey the Law. Most are professional's of some type. While I have a huge problem with Trannies using bathrooms they ain't equipped for I have no issue's with Gay's.

    In fact Ive helped many, or tried to, that were being harassed or having their rights violated. A few beaten down for it. That was my job ; They have equal rights under the Constitution and Law and even if I thought different about them it wouldn't matter. I wasn't wearing a uniform that represented myself.

    Strange but I can't remember one sexual offender Ive locked up that was gay, or admitted he was, or acted like he was. From weinie waggers to rapists. Most were married. The exception were the trannie street corner whore's but they died soon after the plague hit. They were the first to go.

    Without having read all 7 pages at this time I will pose a question that I don't think was asked. What if science discovers there is a gene that causes homosexuality and can then test for it during a womans' pregnancy. What if a woman discovers her child will be born homosexual and for this reason chooses to abort? How does the LBGTQ....gang support this woman's right to her body? Since a future member of their community will be aborted how should they respond?

    Because homosexuals are very active in progressive politics and that affects everyone.

    Interesting issue. The Left loves abortion and gays. It's hard to say which one the Left would favor more. The Left definitely chose Muslims over homosexuals.

    Being born that way as opposed to making a choice or being mentally ill makes a difference
    when homosexual political groups lobby society for special rights, privileges, and protections based on their 'sexual orientation.

    Yep, I see this too. They use a man (a wasband as they call it) for reproducing then they go and find themselves.

    My neighbor's daughter from what I was told was known to be gay at least from high school on.

    She moved away and would visit on holidays walking hand in hand with her girlfriend.

    One day she married a male doctor and now has two kids. I am glad for her parents as now they have grandkids they never thought they would see. They live several States away and I wonder if hubby knows the full story and how long before she finds herself.

    Another friend has a daughter who started out with boys then declared she was gay and moved in with a biological male who was becoming a woman but still intact. Lucky she didn't get pregnant. He used her for money and when it ran out dumped her.

    Now she has a regular average guy and they make a good couple. BTW - she is an ultra Liberal ranting about Trump all the time.

    It matters most to those who want to push the issue politically. Personally I don't care as long as people keep it private. I just don't want someone pushing their sexuality in my face forcing me to accept their lifestyle.

    For sure,
    Two things I find amusing, unbelievable actually. One that people still believe that a persons sexual orientation is a choice. And two, that some people take everything in the Bible literally.
