Is there an ulterior motive of God in making us gay?

    Well, I used to think God made me gay because he was fed up of the population explosion, but then gays were there in the 18th century too, so my reasoning fails in a way.

    I like being gay but I would like to know why we were bestowed by this extra hardship? Anyone has a better opinion of this? icon_sad.gif

    More kindling for winter seasons in heaven?

    Also... who do you think supply the heavenly host with endless food and labor in paradise?

    It's unavoidable. Hell must be stocked or the whole system caves in. If there aren't enough bad people, make more dammit!

    The following is personal opinion:


    lol, the mystery of that riddle....I think it could be a test of tolerance, as god enjoys the tolerant.

    It can also be an acid test; god checking humanity's levels of compassion, understanding and love for those they disagree with.

    I think we're just one example of the endless limitless imagination and creativity of god.

    The hardship you refer to is not of god, its author is the narrow minded. Hatred and intolerance are purely human inventions.

    ..some background...I think:
    Men gave god condemning attributes and prejudices in books so they could identify with god easier, " See? God's as much a bigot as I am, so it's OK."

    Believing god made them in god's image, they never stopped to think the image would be one not visible to the naked eye, so being a religion of men, they gave god genitals.

    Wonderful & sensitive reasoning. Unless, like me, you see no evidence of God's hand in this, or even of God's existence.

    I look rather to Nature for answers. A topic for another thread, but I think if someone can scientifically prove (the logical bane of Christian Fundamentalists) the evolutionary reason for the existence of gays, that person will have greatly advanced the social cause of gays in this world.

    lol thanks Red Vespa; you're very kind.icon_redface.gif

    I believe evolution is one example of the way god does things (and just a glimpse of god's wonderful complexities). Much too complicated for ancient nomadic people to understand.

    Is any of this helping you, Sensible?

    There aint no god. This is just what happens when you put aliphatic hydrocarbons in an aqueous soup. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    ...and if you dont know what an aliphatic hydrocarbon is, then you are qualified to discuss god.

    "GOD"...is an invention of man to explain the big questions of existence that have not been answered by science yet. This would explain why the church has always been in the lead to condemn any new and emerging science or studies...because it further erodes the power of religion to control minds by explaining another "unknown" thing that had been taken on "faith" and attributed to the wisdom and power of "GOD".....icon_biggrin.gif

    aliphatic hydrocarbons....lol, there are no limits to god's imagination. And they can be open- chain, or cyclic; the open chain ones are considered saturated.

    Gay is pretty minor stuff when you consider so much else.

    Maybe gays always existed but due to social stigmas and the like they had to repress their feelings and it wasnt until the really flambouyant ones spoke up.

    Oh please. If some deity wanted to curb the population, it would have been far more expedient for him/her/it/them to have caused you to die of tuberculosis as a baby. God made you gay to fill a quota system...he/she/it/they have a deal with his/her/its/their downstairs counterpart.

    Hardships make us stronger people.
    Now what's your answer to why God lets millions of children die of starvation every year?

    I think god makes gays because he's the only one that can make us and we can't adulterate his work by reproducing ourselves. They say angels are the same way; unisex and unable to breed.

    @ meninlove... well it could be an acid test but I would like it to stop sometime soon, because I am not enjoying being the guinea pig icon_biggrin.gif

    @Caslon.. I am a chemistry major and I know all about aromatics, aliphatics, hetero-cycles and bridged ring systems. just that sometimes I wonder about things not taught in books icon_smile.gif

    @bronze.. i feel worse for people dieing and suffering more than us and I wish to find answer for their suffering too but I guess there is no clear answer.

    It would sure be wonderful if there was no misery.. would love to live in a world like that!

    Hey Sensible, I was hoping you'd be back soon, and you've only been speaking with Doug - Bill's just has vaguely spiritual feelings about all this.

    Both of us always try and ease the misery found in other peoples' existence in any way we can; even if it's a small difference- it's a difference, and they all add up eventually. And you know, doing this eases any misery we have in our own lives too. icon_wink.gif

    and Welcome To Realjock, eh?

    No, I'm obsessed with the idiocy of believing in fantasies. It's the same idiocy that flew airplanes into WTC. The same idiocy that inspires female circumcision. The same idiocy that holds gay people down. Need I go on?

    Isn't "God" a member of even a smaller minority than us? He is, after all, asexual -- isn't he?
