mauvepink BS: Gay church 'marriages' set to get the go (180* d) RE: BS: Gay church 'marriages' set to get the go 16 Feb 11


I counter the idea completely of an 'agenda'. That agenda as posted mentions 5 people's comments and, whilst they have a right to their opinion, I doubt they speak for all gay men and women no more than all feminists activists speak for all women.

The whole idea of this person, that person, the other person trying to take over the world is the type of hype that allows fear to create bigotry and hate. There will always be some whose idea of taking over the world will pervade their every breath but generally speaking most sensible human beings really are far less meglomaniacal. Lets stop the gays trying to take over society, recruiting in schools, etc etc... transposes very quickly into lets give them no right to live, to equality and even to breathe. It's unacceptable.

Speak to gay people and you will find the only agenda that most have is the same as that of hetrosexuals... to live in freedom of oppression, to be loved, to be safe from harm, to just get on with their lives and have the same rights as hetrosexuals. Why is that so bad a thing to want?

One could argue I have an agenda. Most people do. Having an agenda to wanting to take over society is a bit far fetched for most. But having an agenda to want to change some of society's attitudes toward those less favoured by the majority is not a bad thing. I will happily state I am far more relaxed about being part of such and agenda than I would be in having a part in an agenda against fairness and equality.

I do not think I am alone

Inclusion is the agenda. Inclusion and integration. Is that now what most of us all seek?
