Now you are suggesting that since we are defending Homos, we ourselves must be one. - Up to you...
Grow up dude!! - Do you think... you already grown??!then you will stuck!!
I myself have never cared for religious laws as most of them are biased and has their own set of 'do's and 'dont's which are completely based on beliefs and not facts and cannot be accomodated in any progressive societies. For example, Quran says that if a girl is raped then the girl must present 4 eye witnesses to the actual 'act'. If she fails, she will be shunned as a prostitute and lashed in public. Should we follow these 'holy' laws? Quran, Bible, Shastras and Granths are all Rule-books. They can never give you true knowledge as they restrict your thinking with certain pre-defined and often prejudiced rules. They were written by men who used God's name to impose their own thoughts on others. Blindly following these laws shall lead us to stone age, as Afghanistan was going during the Taliban regime.
Bhagwat Gita, however, is NOT a Rule book. It will not tell you what to wear, how to behave, how to pray, how to eat or how to f*** or which behaviour is 'normal' & which is not. So there is no mention about these things specifically. But Bhagwat Gita encourages free thinking and stresses that men must use their own intellect
instead of prevalent traditions or customs to decide what is right and what is wrong. It stresses on Nishkaam Karma and not any formality. Bhagwat Gita clearly says that, to Krishna you are a soul, his own inseparable part, and hence he judges you for your Karma and not your birth or existence. A true Karma Yogi is an explorer - who never fears to challenge or change the mindset of the society and that is how he attains Moksha in his mortal life.---So as per your view Bhagwat Gita accepting these abnormal acts!!
Here's a translation from Bhagwat Gita : "Tark hi jeevan ka aadhaar hai. Yadi Vishwaas ka ankur tark ki bhoomi se nahi ugta, toh woh Andh-Vishwaas kehlata hai"
In the chapter "Prakriti aham Vikriti" Rig Veda says that anything which is in nature is natural and hence Godly. What appears unnatural to others might be another face of the same nature.--It means they support Homosexuality or wat???? "prakriti and Vikriti's " real meaning you should check. again!..
And yeah, Kamasutra openly recognizes the third sex and even shows many sexual positions exclusive to male-male or female-female sex. And mind it, Kamasutra was written in early 1st century - much before Quran or Bible or any Granth came into being. -- The third gender (hijadas)...BUT did they mention they are Normal or did they have equal rights ????
My only advice to you is see facts and don't go with beliefs. Ignorance is never a bliss. When the TM started the topic, he was against Homosexuality and called it weird and abnormal and something harmful. But after seeing reasons and valid points we provided, I think, he too had agreed that things might not be as he thought. And if you are still adamant then, as Kiran said, kindly don't oppose things you don't understand (or in your case, don't want to understand) or suggest inhuman treatment of Homosexuals. Hope my comments don't hurt you.
PS : Since I have pointed out flaws in Quran or Bible, that doesn'tt mean I am against Muslims or Chistians. The only thing I am against is blind-faith and subsequent injustice. And belief-wise I am an Atheist. So religion or its principles doesn't matter to me any way. --Thanx...then you should rectify your comment, that believers are ignorant!!!
