So anyway, apparently I'm Anti-LGBT despite the fact that my girlfriend is a pre-transition woman (MTF, although it doesn't mater to me).  Despite the fact that I have three moms (mom came out as lesbian after her and dad didn't work out), I apparently hate lesbians.
None of that actually matters to whether or not you can hold a problematic view. And yes, you will be accused of things if you bring up problematic opinions. People are accused of things all the time. The way to work through them is not to get righteously indignant about your credentials, but to work through it with discussion. People do not know your situation beforehand, and people will react to things that sound like anti-LGBT propaganda with equal measure. If you want to have discussions about these things, you automatically have to start your conversations from where you are coming from, and not feel threatened the moment anyone dares to question you about it.

The better answer to it is a calm and collected "no, I am not, and here is why:", and not the desire to be violent on this person.

I did explain calmly, but Its the inner rage, you know? And sadly, the person who accused me of it was a 'friend' of mine who came out to me first because he knows I'm a legit guy.

I already editted it out because I felt like I was too harsh, and now, yeah, that sounds like a different situation than what I initially though. Sorry.

Hope that goes better for you with this friend in the future, they should know better :/

  Despite the fact that I have three moms

Huh? How does it work? Two, yeah, nothing strange here. But three? Is your mother polygamous or something as well?

*stuff*
Just one point to make:

I don't know what triggered all that. I'd just like to warn that you should never dismiss anything because "someone else has it worse." Magnitude of suffering is pretty much only relevant if you're performing some sort of triage; you'll help the one in greater pain first. If triage isn't relevant, someone being hurt is still being hurt, regardless of how small it might seem compared to someone else.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

I'm not a homophobic person. I am not afraid of gay people. I have a friend who is gay (Granted, not a close friend, but that isn't because he is gay. If he were straight he still wouldn't be a close friend.)

I disagree with the concept of gayness.

I do not hate gays. I do not curse them. I disagree with them.

I also disagree with catholic views. I disagree with Muslim views.

So yes, when I say that I believe that there should be no gay clergy, it isn't because I hate them. It is because the bible specifically says it is wrong. Ergo, I disagree, it is my right to disagree.

But people still call me a homophobe. So annoying. If I were to say there shouldn't be adulterers in the ministry, because the bible is against that, no one would insult me.

I would say your religion is homophobic, and you just follow it.


You can be christian without saying gay couples should be treated differently than straight ones (within the religion). Just like you can be christian without stoning people for picking up sticks to make a fire on the Sabbath.

What's the relevance of the religion in question being organized?

I wouldn't expect someone who doesn't follow a branch of Christianity to use "because the bible specifically says it is wrong" as justification for anything.
