Persuasive Essay - Gay and Lesbian Rights "If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen cannot love God, whom he has not seen," John 4:20. So, why do heterosexual people hate homosexuals? They are ordinary people with a different lifestyle who would simply like to be treated with respect. Many organized religions believe that a 'gay' lifestyle is wrong. But, if someone is born producing hormones of the opposite sex, shouldn't we have compassion, instead of hating and labeling them as 'morally wrong'? Why are so many people homophobic? Being gay is human, not wrong.Many people say that gays and lesbians are not equal to the straight community. They are wrong. There are hundreds of gay and lesbian foundations and activist groups around the ...view middle of the document...

All they want is freedom to live their lives, to perform the same rituals as heterosexuals, such as hold a job and marry. These people are law abiding citizens and want and deserve the same rights as others. Is that too much to ask? Religious leaders believe that gay is wrong. Many organized religions are contradicting themselves when they don't accept gays and lesbians. If we are all supposed to be God's children, then that means God accepts all people. In other words, we as children of God, should also accept all people. According to the Bible, God is the only judge. "Do not judge others or you too will be judged," Matthew 7:1. Logically, we as humans do not have the power of authority to judge others.Some heterosexuals say that they are afraid of or repulsed by homosexuals when there is actually nothing scary or gross about them at all. "Why would God create a being that is hates? Why are straight people so afraid of gay people?," asks Paul Radcliff of the American Gay and Lesbian Task Force. If one takes this into consideration one will find his statement is true. What threat do they possess? Only people who are insecure about their own sexuality are afraid of or intimidated by homosexuals. This hate and fear only adds to the fear that already exists and escalates the turmoil between the groups. Many homosexuals fear rejection by friends, by family, and by society and are forced to keep their lifestyle a secret. Unfortunately, they have every reason to be afraid.Treating others "as you would have others treat you" is a basic philosophy of many modern religions. Who could ask for otherwise? Certainly not the gay and lesbian groups fighting for their rights as citizens of the world. If people can think of homosexuals as regular human beings, no different from the rest of us, then maybe this problem would not exist. Maybe if people could be just a little less hypocritical, then we would find that there is really no problem there at all.
