    The symptoms of Lesbianism:
    Here goes; Symptom(Sx) 1. Attracted to women – well I am not attracted to men, but then I am not overly attracted to women either. Sx2. Besides their female companions, they will distance themselves from other women – I do find myself distancing myself from other women, and I do have a few female friends. Mostly because I do not find many women that I can share my life experiences with. Sx3. Like to hang out, have meals and sleep in the company of women – I have hung out with other women in the past, shared meals with them and we all slept together in the same room, when I was going to Basic Training and in the Military. I do enjoy going out to dinner with my few female friends. Sx4. Have no affection for men – I have no real affection for men, most of them are bores, but then I find that I can not find many women my age that have had the same life experiences that I have had. So because of this listing of symptoms I must be a Lesbian. Well three out of four isn’t too bad.

    When will people get over this obsession with other people’s lives. They say that it is not part of Gods design, who really knows what God’s design really is, as far as I know He has not revealed it to anyone on this pathetic piece of rock, at least not to me. During my adult life I have met many “gay” people many of them make better Christians, Jews, or Muslims than the so called straight people do. They seem to be able to live up to the teachings of all the Prophets (pbwt), Moses, Issa and Muhammad, then their straight brothers and sisters.

    Did not the Prophet Issa, teach, these are paraphrased, “Judge not lest ye be judged in the same light.” or “ Do not look to the splinter in your neighbor’s eye until you deal with the log in your eye.” People need to spend more time fixing what is wrong in their lives then trying to change the lives of a very small portion of the human race. That goes for those who believe they are good Christians, Jews or Muslims. God created all living things on this rock and he said they where good. True, He has had problems in the past with people who lusted after others or their possessions, look to Sodom. Sodom was not destroyed because the town was full of gay people, it was destroyed because of the sinfulness of the people. People if you want a religion to guide your lives then look to all of them combined Judaism with Christianity with Islam. Once you start to master all of the teachings of all the Prophets then you may master how to live in harmony with other peoples and cultures.

    Remember, GOD MADE US ALL EQUAL IN HIS EYES AND DECLARED IT GOOD. So the teachings go. Or maybe our family motto from back around 300 CE will help you, “Et secundum diversitatem unitatis pro scientiam/Einheit durch Vielfalt und Wissen” is supposed to mean “Unity through diversity and knowledge”.
