FYIGAQ*, Bigotry Edition
There is a lot of conversation going on about bigotry, particularly with regards to the views of people who question granting full rights, equality, and inclusion to LGBTQ folks. I find it all very interesting. My question is this:
How do we expect people to know what is right and wrong?
… for those of you who believe that homosexuality is in some way immoral, how do you expect people who grow up in circumstances where they are taught and/or observe firsthand no moral difference between themselves and gays (or between themselves and straights, if they are themselves gay) to come to the same conclusions that you do?
… for those of you who believe that homosexuals are no more or less moral as a result of their sexual orientation, how do you expect people who grow up in circumstances where they are taught that homosexual acts are a sin willingly entered into by morally weak or inferior people to come to the same conclusions that you do?
*Formerly BIBI, which stood for “Because I’m Bizarrely Curious”, I’ve re-dubbed this little series “Fish You, I Got a Question” in hopes that it will clear up any confusion, particularly those revolving around the Prime Minister of Israel. For those of you unfamiliar with this series, I ask seemingly strange questions with the intention of exploring deeper themes or ideas that I think often go unexamined. Basically, I’m being needlessly argumentative with the hopes of proving some higher point. Think of it like grad school, only worse.
