My credentials: My friends consist of the following: 1 - straight guy. 4 - gay guys. 2 - lesbians. In my wedding, I had 1 gay guy as one of my groomsmen, 2 gay guys were the wedding coordinators, 1 gay guy was the florist. I love watching Christopher Lowell and I love to go dancing as often as possible. Now, having said that, I'm also a Conservative Christian. How do the two lifestyles mix? Simple. My gay friends are just my friends and I don't judge their life and they don't judge me. But they know my feelings that Homosexuality is a choice and one that is different from Race. I believe Race is a fundamentally different issue than Homosexuality since there is clear proof that people can change their sexual preference depending on the emotional state of their lives. Three-quarters of the Gay people I know, where once Straight and also went back and forth a couple of times. One girl I know was straight, then became a Lesbian, then is straight again. And now, she says she is not bisexual because the definition of bisexual is someone who likes both sexes at the same time in their life. This girl only likes men now and is not in the least attracted by women. So sexuality is a funny thing and changes sometimes as often as does the direction of the wind. Race does not. Therefore, Race is something that can and should be protected under law while sexual preferences should no more protection than cell phone carrier perferences.
