when i said i would be on the fence, i probably should have elaborated more, but i didnt want to make the article about my beliefs. i was raised in a fundamentally christian home, and every time the 'g' word or 'h' word was heard, i was shuffled off to read romans chapter 1 for the umpteenth time.
when my parents divorced, my mom married again, the man she married had a son who, at the time, was 6. and even at 6, there was no doubt he was going to be gay. when he came out at 16, there was, in the family, a collective "no sh*t, sherlock" response. up until then, the 'born gay' theory seemed ridiculous to me.
i may never be 100% resolved about homosexuality itself. i dont understand it, and dont try. but the reality is, gay people exist. and we, as a nation, portray ourselves as a melting pot. i guess i wanted people to know im not a proponent of being gay. or an opponent. i was genuinely angry at the law, and the way it was portrayed, and if i dont maintain some semblance of neutrality, i become a target and the article loses any value it may have had. it is what it is, and should have no bearing on political decisions.
