Letters: Homosexuality not a normal function of the body

* views expressed in letters to the editor are the authors opinion and not shared by the Gympie Times

Letters: I AGREE with most of the editor's views (GT, June 13).

Yes, they say we are a free country with free speech and entitled to our own opinions. This appears to be only in theory nowadays.

It is questionable, going by the ramifications you can face if you speak out against the views of the loud minority groups.

You can expect a barrage of insults for your thoughts or a trumped up legal charge for your efforts.

I personally am on the other side of the fence on this issue.

I believe gay marriage will hurt society in the long term and question the real reasoning behind the push to legalise gay marriage.

Society over time has become generally accepting of the gay community and tolerant of the activities they choose as long as it is behind closed doors.

They say it is about marriage equality and love.

These are words that touch and pull on most people's heartstrings and everybody believes in this concept, but this play on words or ideology is distorting the facts.

The question should be, do you believe in marriage of man to a man or woman to a woman - that is the real question?

To legalise gay marriage is to legitimise/validate homosexuality.

By doing this we are saying to our children and future generations that it is correct and normal practice for a man to sexually love a man.

Homosexual practices are not a normal function of the human body.

This is a scientifically and medically proven fact.

The truth is, being tolerant of a genuine fault is one thing, accepting something that is incorrect is another and is fraught with danger.

I believe people need to have a long hard think about what the subject matter is and not get lost on a couple of warm and fuzzy words.

My comments are aimed at the subject, not the person.

Shaun Kelly,
