Bah. Just talked to a friend of mine about SoulForce coming, and I mentioned my excitement about them coming. She said that she believes in gay rights, and that they are people. She also said, however, that she doesn't think that homosexuality is God's plan for his children. I said that I didn't see anything wrong with it, because I don't (obviously). She then mentioned how she didn't think it was God's plan for his children, because anal sex is "dangerous" (she's a nursing major, by the way...). Of course sex gets mentioned. I then said that I was going to ask one more question and then I'd leave... I asked if she thought that homosexuals were born with an attraction to the same gender. She said she didn't know, but that it didn't matter. She said that if she were to be attracted to a woman she would have to resist that "temptation", because it wasn't what God intended - it was wrong (sin), in other words. She said that gays and lesbians (those with same sex attractions) had a responsibility to resist the same "temptations". I then asked (yeah, I said I was only asking one more question, oops) if it was possible for homosexuals to change their attractions. She replied that it was... Bah. I said I disagreed with her and left... Misinformation, everywhere.
