But this... Is just, no. I can't be the only one who sees the insanity!
So, one of my uncle's friends made a Facebook post abut people who are anti-lgbt. I wanted to bring a factor to his attention. Here is my post -
"The only resistance I have with agreeing with you is the worry that if being 'gay' becomes a 'mental disorder' and same sex marriage is legal, that pedophiles will push for something very similar. Which would just be . . . horrible. Other than that though, I'm an 'odd' conservative who supports my lgbt friends"
Not three minutes later, a friend of his posts this in reply -
There is currently a push in California for exactly what you described. And in the netherlands and Canada, beastiality and polygamy supporters are currently trying to be recognized as well. But as Ben Franklin said, those who place security over liberty deserve neither. (paraphrased)."
You're kidding me, right? You've got to be kidding me! Yes, I think it would be wonderful for my lgbt friends to marry whoever it is they want to, regardless of their love's gender.
But I can not stand the thought of pedophiles being legal. At all.
They people who have suffered being the object of a pedophile's sick love can still be haunted. I'm sickened.
Now polygamy isn't as bad. Sure, it might heighten the marriage-divorce-killing-spouse. It doesn't completely ruin a person. Well, if could some. You know, the ones who don't take heartbreak very well.
Beastiality? Getting a little odd there. A animal can't say no, so it could be considered rape. Way to go for quicker evolution, I guess? I'm not completely sure. I don't think I stand for that either.
What really bothers me about this guy's post is the quote. It's been paraphrased! The original quote might not even mean the same thing. Paraphrased quotes, to me, are the same as slander.
I couldn't even stand to reply to such a blindly liberal person. I just can't do it. I'm too shocked at such a disgusting thought. What's worse - in that man's mind, he's perfectly okay with all that he's said. I just...
