Yes, I’m talking about Carol Boltz. Again!
If you’ve not visited her blog yet, do it now.
Carol has cred.
Carol Boltz is highly credible. She comes from a very fundamentalist Christian background. She’s made a lot of changes in her life as she’s had her eyes opened to what is real and true about gay people.
Read Carol Boltz! 😉

Be sure to read the comments, too.
Here are the most recent three (as of typing this post) of 11 comments.
“You are exchanging “urges” for orientation. These are different…” I like how you put that, Carol. The word “urge” (and similar vocab) distances us from the reality that this is how some people are oriented to love. Also, while Thomas can point out that there are MORE heterosexuals than homosexuals, he cannot (logically or scientifically) equate that with health vs. disease. For example, are tall basketball players diseased b/c they are statistically in the minority on the scale of tallness? What about Einstein? Was he diseased b/c his mind was abnormally brilliant? Different is just different. No biggie.
Can we not discuss, and even disagree, without resort to accusations of putdown adn condemnation? To make your argument, you have to be able to explain why same-sex love is normal but inter-species love (and other abnormalities) is not. I don’t say this to put anyone down, I say it to get you to think logically. If you can’t make the argument, then should I accuse you of bigotry and condemnation, against proponents of inter-species love? Dan has certainly just spoken of their orientation pejoratively- why is that okay? Look, the truth will you set free. And facing the fact that something is abnormal is the first step to freedom. hillside- would you desribe schizophrenia as just a normal variation? I can see that you don’t want discussion; apparently, you just want comments form those who agree with you. So much for tolerance.
… I put up your comments, didn’t I? I’m letting you speak, but all I hear are attacks. Your criticism is coming through loud and clear. I don’t liken “interspecies” sex to gay sex because there is not two-way interaction, only physical. I’m not sure that we want to go there… I have repeated that we are discussing love between two persons, and sometimes they have sex, just like NORMAL humans. It is emotional, mental, and physical. To me, it seems that you wish to invest time in argument. I don’t see a point in that, since you and I have already made up our minds.
And, I chimed in:
Carol, You’re the coolest. 🙂 Keep on saying what you’re saying.
No matter how much people try to say YOU are not being rational, in reality, you are the only one (between them and you) being rational. All else is an attempt to make an absurd comparison.
If people want to liken gay relationships to sex with animals, why not liken it to sex with cars or buildings or trees? That would be ridiculous. But, it makes as much sense as comparing gay relationships to bestiality.
The topic of gay relationships is about relationships between equal, available, consenting adults who love each other. Not animals, buildings, cars or trees.
Keep on doing what you’re doing, Carol. You’re the best. 🙂
