Starting this topic of conversation frightens me because anyone who knows my views is likely to stick their tongue out. In case you don't then here it is, I have searched deep within my heart and I have found that contrary to what a blog reader once accused me of, I'm not trying to be politically correct, or buy a gay audience (do we even have that in Nigeria?), I am simply indifferent about one's sexuality. Just keep it to yourself and don't go throwing it in people's faces. I don't wear a Tshirt saying I'm heterosexual, I love D. Likewise I'm not interested in seeing you wearing one announcing Look At Me, I'm GAY!
But seriously, provided you're hurting no one, do you.
Yet I find this news very disturbing; A US dating website, Christian Mingle, meant for only straight people, has now been ordered by a judge to accept Gay and lesbian singles to their website database. This was due to a class-action suit filed in 2013 by two gay men against Sparks Networks Inc. The suit alleged that Christian Mingle violated California's anti-discrimination law. The online dating site will now allow gay and lesbian users to look for same-sex matches after the settlement of discrimination claims approved by a California judge, who has also asked the company to pay $468,000 to the two gay men who brought the lawsuit against it. The settlement applies also to CatholicMingle.com, AdventistSinglesConnection.com and BlackSingles.com.
Is it really discrimination if a group was formed for a particular class of people? It's like visiting an Indian dating website and bringing a discrimination suit against them when you couldn't join the site because you're German. It makes absolutely no sense. It's not discrimination, the site just isn't meant for you!
I'm certain there are hundreds of online gay dating websites, which leads me to belive that these two men are just troublemakers who for reasons best known to them are prejudiced against Christianity and Christians. I think the Judge in this matter is both biased and unintelligent and I cannot understand why his judgment isn't being appealed.
Gay people strongly desire to be accepted. Do they really think they're doing themselves any favours by forcing themselves and their lifestyle on others? Is that their acceptance agenda; You MUST love me?
Homosexuality hasn't been accepted in Nigeria yet and at this rate I hope it isn't. I was and still am vehemently against the criminalization of homosexuality, but if this is the kind of wahala we would have to deal with if its accepted, then no thank you sirree, 14 years in prison sounds just fine.
I never thought I'd hear myself say those words, yet I just did! "Live and Let Live" ought also to apply to gay people. Let straight people live, we have a right to decide whether to accept you into our lives or not.
