Showing the guts to present both sides if the issue, the Washington Post published an op-ed piece by Tony Perkins.
In a column on the paper's On Faith blog, Perkins wrote "homosexual activist groups like GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) are exploiting" recent incidents of gay youth committing suicide after anti-gay "bullying." Perkins suggests that these tragedies are not caused by the homophobic attacks these individuals were subjected to, but rather because "homosexuals experience higher rates of mental health problems in general, including depression," and there's no "evidence to link this with society's general disapproval of homosexual conduct."
What non Christians of any sexual preference need to understand is opposition to homosexuality is not based in bigotry or hate. It is based on the word of God and the laws he has given to man. There mere consideration of eternal damnation because of chosen lifestyle should be enough to cause at least some bit of mental anguish and rightly so.
Too often we are expected to simply nod and smile as others embrace, celebrate and shove in the face of others their perversion of choice.
There is plenty of selfish homosexual propaganda out there. We ought to thank Mr. Perkins for his bold stand and presenting an rational voice.
