Christians obsessed with gay sex?

So, what is it with this obsession with gay sex in America? Why are so many religious people concerned about what goes on beyond closed doors between gay people? Why are religious people even thinking about other people’s sexual acts?

Inquiring minds need to know.

Why might a motel owner in, say, Indiana rent a room to two hetero buddies but refuse to rent a room to two gay guys, citing the religious freedom act?

What might that motel owner be thinking about when he turns away the gay couple?

I’m betting he’s thinking about sex acts — he’s thinking about what those two gay guys might be doing in that room, and how immoral he feels it is within the parameters of his belief system.

So, here’s my question: why is he so focused on other’s people sexual acts? Why does he care about what they do behind closed doors? Why is he even thinking about it?

The truth is, some religious people are obsessed with thoughts of other people’s sexual acts. They don’t see a gay couple as two people in love. In their minds, they see two guys having sex together, which seems to me to be a terrible invasion of their privacy, especially when it is used against them by declining services.

And even more worrisome is the fact that in the year 2015, some states are enacting legislation to encourage that sort of behaviour. Yes, go ahead: feel free to think about what that gay couple might be doing in that room. Turn them away if the thought of them having sex makes you sick.

It just doesn’t seem to occur to some of the legislators that obsessing about what other people are doing behind closed doors is sick.

Sure, I know they are justifying their actions by quoting their primitive, unsubstantiated religious belief systems. But those are glass houses that can be shattered with the tiniest pebble, and many people might point out that adults who believe in religious “fairy tales” are delusional, even mentally ill.

  1. For the same reason(s) that ISIL is lopping peoples’ heads off in the desert. $$$. But unlike Wall St. just slightly more exuberant. Sorry, just had to. Or as the APA,CPA(American Psychiatric Association) know, psychopathy crosses all ethnic, cultural, race, social-economic national backgrounds. G_d also has a weird sense of humour. He may even forget summer this year! %P

  2. I dare say that they are trying to divert everyone else’s gazes away from their own sins. Holding up a bible and bashing gays covers up their own homosexual urges. How many times have we seen even the most vocal bible thumpers caught in their own lies as they were outed for their own homosexual predilections, multiple extra marriage affairs, ambling, child abuse, and fraud of every type. I think that the louder they protest the guiltier they are. it’s like masturbation. Everybody does it, but those that feel guilty about doing it most are the loudest anti wankers

  3. Organised religion is, and always has been, about control. Set a bunch of arbitrary rules so that you can police them, giving the “elite” the excuse to poke their noses in and judge, and hold the threat of excommunication and eternal damnation over those that refuse to toe the line.

    The majority of the population these days will not play their game, but these folk are so up themselves that they don’t recognise the fact, and keep on judging anyway – piling their outmoded constraints on to those that don’t subscribe to their club, under the delusion that they are under the guidance of some divine authority.

    It is blatantly obvious to external observers that all the various churches are not being guided by anything other than their own prejudices, and certainly not by a supreme deity. Hence the humungous number of different denominations all saying a different thing and all claiming to be the only one that is right and “following God’s will”.

    The other religions are not really any different to the Christians in this respect.

  4. Jillian, you pretty much nailed it in your last paragraph.

    The right-wing in the USA has been taken over by the religious nut jobs in the past 30-years starting with Regan’s “Silent Majority”.

    The right-wingnuts survive on hate. They have always survived on hate. They need to have someone to hate in order to justify their existence. In my lifetime it has been Jews, blacks, immigrants, and now, gays. Always some group that doesn’t conform to their ideal image of biblical perfection. They forget that Jesus was a middle-eastern, dark skinned person who preached caring for his fellow man. He would never be accepted in todays christian cults .
