Harry Thomas gets support of gay Dems

By Washington Post editors

Gay Democrats have rewarded D.C. Council member Harry Thomas (D-Ward 5) for his vote last year in favor of the city's same-sex marriage law with an endorsement for his reelection, D.C. Wire reports.

The Gertrude Stein Democratic Club announced its support for Thomas at a meeting Monday night.

Thomas was under intense pressure from ministers and same-sex marriage opponents in Northeast to oppose the measure. But he supported the bill, saying he would not stand for the "disenfranchisement of any individual in the District."

The club also endorsed council member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), who is openly gay, in his campaign.

Violence against a minority group

Gays are being beaten, shot at, sent to the hospital, killed. In the Middle East, they are killing gays among other groups out of hatred. Is this what we want America to become? Do we want America to revert back to the 1960's when groups were killed and segregated against for simply no good reason? Do we want to follow the ways of the Middle East and Al Queda? Let's push forward, it's time to end bigotry, discrimination, hate, and ignorance. This is modern America, not the Dark Ages.

Homosexuality is not a sin according to the Bible. Any educated Christian would know that. Scholars who have studied the Bible in context of the times and in relation to other passages have shown those passages (Leviticus, Corinthians, Romans, etc) have nothing to do with homosexuality. These passages often cherry-picked while ignoring the rest of the Bible. The sins theses passages are referring to are idolatry, prostitution, and rape, not homosexuality.

Homosexuality is not a choice. Just like you don't choose the color of your skin, you cannot choose whom you are sexually attracted to. If you can, sorry, but you are not heterosexual, you are bi-sexual. Virtually all major psychological and medical experts agree that sexual orientation is NOT a choice. Most gay people will tell you its not a choice. Common sense will tell you its not a choice. While science is relatively new to studying homosexuality, studies tend to indicate that its biological.
