In my understanding, people are born gay. Being homosexual is more neurological/biological than psychological. Homosexuality does not confine to humanity only, homosexuality also exist in animal kingdom! To homophobic out there, take your hate elsewhere, go blame God or Nature!

I’m a straight guy, but I have no qualm with ANYbody getting together and be married (both gay and straight)… It’s really none of my business who someone wants to be married to.

Dear Kim,
You are an inspiration.
I have just finished listening to this podcast and I am writing to you without hesitation. I will engage further with you in due course.
This commentary piece is so appropriate for all that I am experiencing in this point in my wonderful life. One such example being that I have recently joined a community radio station where such dogma has existed that as of yesterday, the entire management board resigned and I am observing the elements involved in the somewhat sad situation of which I truly believe has evolved through the ideological dogma of the individual, with the openness that is the fundamental element of community that has suffered and will cause much unnecessary sorrow for so many giving and spirited people.
I mentioned your website to a volunteer at the station last week whom promptly liked your Facebook Page on the station’s Facebook Page. I hope hasn’t been removed, has been utilised and there’s been the opportunity for many people to engage in and absorb your wisdom.
My initial thoughts is that I wish that your closing statement be separated from the main topic so as it may be more widely heard without any prejudice from your introductory topic. Maybe titled Ideological Dogma.
Thank you for taking the time to be a part of my day. Every day is special and today you helped make this day special for me and I am very grateful to you.
Best wishes,
Sandy.

Gay is not natural and goes against nature. As far as marriage, beware of what you wish for!

Modern technology is not natural. If “not natural” = “bad”, how long until you reject the Internet?

Kim, you are a like Sherpa Guide–as in –you are guiding people to ideological high altitudes (or high attitudes) and I applaud your candor, honesty and wisdom. This is what it means to be a grown up. I have learned so much from your excellent shows.
Thank you!!

Whether of an “animal” or of a man, homo-erotic acts are a violation of both the natural & spiritual orders of creation, which makes buggery an abomination. No human being was ever born to be buggered, or to bugger his fellow man. So-called gay “marriage” is an oxymoron, a complete contradiction in terms, and in total discord with the principle of marriage, which is a complimentary union of a female wife with a male husband for the purpose of life, the balanced nurturing of future generations, & a santification of human sexuality. In other words, “marriage” is not a “conventional” notion or personal whim. As the slippery slop becomes more slippery, we now even have some individuals demanding to marry their pets.

Animals in mounting, do not engage in a “homo-erotic” act. This is a calculated projection of the human mind, & not a conscious inclination or intention of any animal. Animals are actually often far more civilized than human beings. Indeed, the corruptions of some humans, are what lead to a depth of corruption & adversity among animals. Animals do not sodomize their young. Take a vicious dog for instance, so often a reflection of the brutality & sadism of their owners.

What is at work here, is not a so-called “homo-phobia,” but a hetero-phobia — an irrational fear of the opposite gender — an under-developed or compromised psycho-sexual disposition — an “Oedipus” Complex or in the instance of lesbianism, “Electra.”

The emergence of Big Mother — an intrusive, manipulative & emasculating women’s “liberation” movement, increases both hetero-phobia & homo-sexism. But most people who have deceived themselves into believing a lie are loath to admit the truth of their predicament. The psyop has been widely successful, but the consequences of this cultural & political perfidy will follow. In spite of mainlined media attempts to obfuscate, they are becoming more evident by the day. It’s being made into an up-side-down & backwards world. The metaphor is almost complete.

Why not look up Lord of The Flies on Wikipedia, and know zoologist Alfred Kinsey, was an insect taxidermist financed by the Corporate Cartel Collectivist Rockefeller Foundation. In fact, Wikipedia references Rockefeller, the original snake oil salesman & confidence man, as a great “philanthropist,” when nothing could be further from the truth. The gay rights psyop is covered in “After The Ball” by Hunter Madsen & Mashall T Kirk, actually a schematic for a homosexist subversion of America. Believe me, believe me not. But do your own due diligence.

“Whether of an “animal” or of a man, homo-erotic acts are a violation of both the natural & spiritual orders of creation, which makes buggery an abomination.”

The idea that one can somehow violate nature is so bizarre to me. I find myself more inclined to respect the work and views of a learned Bible scholar than someone who feels the need to spout derogatory remarks about all gay people. The fact is, what you think doesn’t matter. People love who they love, and you have no right to stand in the way.

“No human being was ever born to be buggered, or to bugger his fellow man.”

Tell that to Liberace. Or, while we’re at it – Ted Haggard, Mark Foley, Larry Craig, Bob Allen, or Glenn Murphy Jr. – actual right-wing religious politicians hypocritically oppressing gays while they have their own secret, scandalous lives as pedophiles, rapists, and molesters. That is not representative of the gay community, that is representative of PSYCHOPATHY and REPRESSION.

Your inability or refusal to separate homosexuality from bestiality and pedophilia is not only dishonest but depressingly typical hate speech. I find that as offensive as you seem to find homosexuality, and I support a world in which your negative views of your fellow man are properly digested and flushed out to sea.

I have to agree with ‘Elm’ above. But in the most fundamental sense, just as disagreeable with some readers, is that most basically the institution of marriage was ordained of God as a reflection of the relationship between his son Jesus and his ‘Bride’ the church. That is all members living and dead past present and future of those who will say ‘Yes’ to Jesus and a relationship to God through Him(!) coming from every ethnic group and philosophy and religion on earth when they come to know Jesus Christ as ‘The Boss of Their Life’!

So his ‘Church’ is not complete yet, but ‘the Body of Christ’ on earth in our present time is supposed to be a reflection of Jesus Christ to the world at large and anything to do with that, specifically Marriage and the institution Marriage, as of that which first started in Adam and Eve, whatever or whoever, changes that ‘definition’ is aimed at destroying His ‘Image’ in the earth and all that it does and has done and is designed to do, for the peacefulness and stability reproduction and health of humanity, and as a witness of God’s love and of his plan for us In Jesus Christ is first of all instigated by Satan and then further by those that are either deceived by him or are in his employ to deliberately destroy Marriage which is the foundation of any society and a ‘gateway’ for knowing God! (Even those individuals that do not believe in Satan as an active malevolent personality, not just an ‘evil principle, you might call those ‘Satanic Atheists’ and probably in the ‘camp of’ ‘God Atheists’ too, although not all!)

As a verification of this you will notice in the past, now and in the future, everything that is moral or right or healthy will be overturned and redefined in order to destroy God’s Witness of Himself and his care and keeping in the world, even in ways you (nor I!) can imagine at the present time and even of those things that we don’t even think to take notice of! that contribute to love between husband and wife and children and relatives and even of ‘significant others’ too! Just watch.

We as a nation and as a world are heading into some very dark times even more as the darkness increase as time marches forward from twilight to night when no man can work.

Thanks!

P.S. Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world but that all through Him may be saved. Witness his encounter with the women caught in adultery, deliberately entrapped, so that the authorities would have something ‘against’ Jesus with which to accuse Him and to be able to eventually condemn him to death with, although at the time they did not accomplish that feat.

Those are your beliefs. Nobody else is obligated to accept them as the be-all end-all truth.

Conflating homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality is hate speech. Somehow I doubt Jesus would have done that.
