Homosexuality quotes by James Baldwin
#1. Giovanni had awakened an itch, had released a gnaw in me. I realized it one afternoon, when I was taking him to work via the Boulevard Montparnasse. We had bought a kilo of cherries and we were eating them as we walked along. We were both insufferably childish and high-spirited that afternoon and the spectacle we presented, two grown men jostling each other on the wide sidewalk and aiming the cherry pits, as though they were spitballs, into each other's faces, must have been outrageous. And I realized that such childishness was fantastic at my age and the happiness out of which it sprang yet more so; for that moment I really loved Giovanni, who had never seemed more beautiful than he was that afternoon. #Quote by James Baldwin
Homosexuality quotes by Paul Beatty
#2. You either a poet or a homosexual."

"Oh, shit, that's fucked up. Why can't I be both? #Quote by Paul Beatty
Homosexuality quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown
#3. My morality and faith are choices. My sexual orientation however isn't. #Quote by Anthony Venn-Brown
Homosexuality quotes by Scott Lively
#4. If homosexuality is not caused by genetic factors ... then that means it can be acquired ... And if it can be acquired, shouldn't we be doing everything in our power to protect people from acquiring it? Shouldn't we lean to the side of protecting the children instead of affirming a scientific hypothesis that has no actual truthful foundation? #Quote by Scott Lively
Homosexuality quotes by Little Richard
#5. I didn't know that homosexuality was wrong until I read it in the Bible. #Quote by Little Richard
Homosexuality quotes by Wesley Hill
#6. I know that whatever the complex origins of my own homosexuality are, there have been conscious choices I've made to indulge - and therefore to intensify, probably - my homoerotic inclinations. As I look back over the course of my life, I regret the nights I have given in to temptations to lust that pulsed like hot, itching sores in my mind. And so I cling to this image - washed. I am washed, sanctified, justified through the work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Whenever I look back on my baptism, I can remember that God has cleansed the stains of homosexual sin from the crevasses of my mind, heart, and body and included me in his family, the church, where I can find support, comfort, and provocation toward Christian maturity. #Quote by Wesley Hill
Homosexuality quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#7. I don't know any homophobic people. That suggests fear.
The people I know who hate gay folks are:
illiterate, nescient, uneducated, uninstructed, unlearned, unschooled, untaught, backward, benighted, primitive, unenlightened, blockheaded, dense, doltish, hebetudinous, obtuse, stupid, thickheaded, thick-witted
But not homophobic. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Homosexuality quotes by Saleem Haddad
#8. In America the gay world touched my life at the margins, though references and images and occasional conversations with men and women who celebrated their homosexuality with pride. As far as I could see there was nothing to be proud about. There was only pain, humiliation and shame. If I were to join this group, I would have to act proud and hide my feelings of rejection and loneliness. If I were to show these men and women that I was terrified for my future, I would be regarded as misguided or a victim of Islam or Arabness. But if there was one thing I wsa certain of it was that there was nothing misguided about my feelings, and I did not feel that Islam or my Arabness was to blame. If I were to join this group, I would simply go from the repressiveness of secrecy to the repressiveness of pride. I didn't despise my shame. I had no reason to do so. My shame illuminated my intense attachment to the world, my desire to be connected with others. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Homosexuality quotes by Edward Carpenter
#9. That men of this kind despise women, though a not uncommon belief, is one which hardly appears to be justified. Indeed, though naturally not inclined to 'fall in love' in this direction, such men are by their nature drawn rather near to women, and it would seem that they often feel a singular appreciation and understanding of the emotional needs and destinies of the other sex, leading in many cases to a genuine though what is called 'Platonic' friendship. There is little doubt that they are often instinctively sought after by women, who, without suspecting the real cause, are conscious of a sympathetic chord in the homogenic which they miss in the normal man. #Quote by Edward Carpenter
Homosexuality quotes by Núria Añó
#10. To all the young people who discover they are gay: Don't be afraid to come out of the closet right now. #Quote by Núria Añó
Homosexuality quotes by Ali Sina
#11. It is propaganda that people, who had lived a full life of heterosexuality, were married and had children, were denying their real sexuality all that time. There is historic evidence that entire populations can convert to homosexuality under certain conditions. #Quote by Ali Sina
Homosexuality quotes by Bryan Fischer
#12. Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews. #Quote by Bryan Fischer
Homosexuality quotes by Pope John Paul I
#13. To begin with, homosexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia; one is sexual orientation and the other is sexual perversion. Yet, in that most cases of pedophilia involve incest, we must consider the question. If our objective is to prevent pedophilia in adoption then the only logical action is to permit only homosexuals to adopt children who are only of the opposite sex. This would reduce incest to zero. If we permit heterosexual couples to adopt children, then children would be at risk. #Quote by Pope John Paul I
Homosexuality quotes by Antonin Scalia
#14. If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things? #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Homosexuality quotes by Nick Wilgus
#15. This is the South and we have our own ways of doing things down here. We're not going to sit back in silence while people like Wiley ram their homosexuality down our throats."
"God knows I ain't about to put my homosexuality in your mouth, Billy," I said. #Quote by Nick Wilgus
Homosexuality quotes by Philip Kitcher
#16. Klaus Mann saw very clearly how different was his own (more liberated) form of homosexuality from the same-sex attractions of his father - and that is reiterated in TM's diary queries about "how two men can sleep together". #Quote by Philip Kitcher
Homosexuality quotes by Justin Lee
#17. God's truth!' one side shouts.
'More loving!' comes the response.
'God's truth!'
'More loving!'
'God's truth!'
'More loving!'
But there shouldn't be a clash between 'God's truth' and 'More loving.' In the Bible, Truth and Love are two sides of the same coin. You can't have one without the other. God's Truth is all about God's Love for us and the Love we ought to have for one another. We are being untrue to that Truth if we treat people unlovingly. And we are missing out on the full extent of that Love if we try to divorce it from Ultimate Truth. #Quote by Justin Lee
Homosexuality quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#18. Millions of men who are disgusted by the thought or sight of a man having sex with another each sometimes brings about an orgasm through a woman's anus. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Homosexuality quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown
#19. When we choose to live authentically we chip away at others prisons of pretend and create an opportunity for them to walk out of darkness into freedom. #Quote by Anthony Venn-Brown
Homosexuality quotes by Corey Taylor
#20. Anyone who feels that homosexuality is not only a sin but also a disease or a mental issue should take a look in the mirror and realize who the real crazy person is. #Quote by Corey Taylor
Homosexuality quotes by Jeremy Bentham
#21. If then, merely out of regard to population, it were right that paederasts should be burnt alive, monks ought to be roasted alive over a slow fire. (Offences Against One's Self, #Quote by Jeremy Bentham
Homosexuality quotes by Ed Gillespie
#22. I accept people for who they are and love them. That doesn't mean I have to agree or that I have to turn my back on the tenets of my faith and reject the tenets of my faith when it comes to homosexuality. #Quote by Ed Gillespie
Homosexuality quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#23. Chomie' is South African homosexual men's unofficial name. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Homosexuality quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#24. The Catholic Church standing in "solidarity" with members of the LGBT community while condemning their behavior as "sinful" is a little like attempting to stand with two feet in one shoe. "Love the sinner, hate the sin" sounds really high-minded until you realize the only sin committed was being born different. #Quote by Quentin R. Bufogle
Homosexuality quotes by Norman Sunshine
#25. We both grew up at a time when homosexuality was not even spoken about. There were certainly no books that could help a young person understand that two people of the same sex could build a happy, productive and loving life together. When we entered our 50th year, another same sex couple told us we were 'an inspiration', so we began to feel we had the responsibility to make what we've experienced available to others. We also wanted to show people who were not gay that our life was not unlike theirs. We are all pretty much the same, so we deserve equal protection under the Constitution. #Quote by Norman Sunshine
Homosexuality quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#26. Realizing that other people have a problem with [homosexuality] was the weirdest thing for me. As a kid it wasn't even something that was mentioned. It was never something that was even explained to me. It was just, "That's Mark and he's gay." Mark was just another friend of my dad's who would talk about his boyfriend instead of his girlfriend. I was 5. I didn't care. It seemed perfectly normal, and still does ... #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Homosexuality quotes by Frans De Waal
#27. Exclusive homosexuality is not very common in nature. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Homosexuality quotes by Hanna Rosin
#28. Transsexualism is far less common than homosexuality, and the research is in its infancy. Scattered studies have looked at brain activity, finger size, familial recurrence, and birth order. #Quote by Hanna Rosin
Homosexuality quotes by Camille Paglia
#29. History shows that male homosexuality, which like prostitution flourishes with urbanization and soon becomes predictably ritualized, always tends toward decadence. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Homosexuality quotes by Thomas Szasz
#30. In English-speaking countries, the connection between heresy and homosexuality is expressed through the use of a single word to denote both concepts: buggery ... Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (Third Edition) defines "buggery" as "heresy, sodomy. #Quote by Thomas Szasz
Homosexuality quotes by Timothy Keller
#31. We would say homosexuality is not the original design for sexuality. Therefore, it's not good for human flourishing. We want people to do things that are good for human flourishing. But that's not what sends you to heaven or Hell. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Homosexuality quotes by Ed Case
#32. I believe that the fact and the reality of homosexuality and heterosexuality and of opposite and same-gender unions should be taught in our public schools without a value judgement system also being offered. #Quote by Ed Case
Homosexuality quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#33. You are digging for the answers until your fingers bleed, to satisfy the hunger, to satiate the need ... And as you pray in your darkness for wings to set you free, you are bound to your silent legacy. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Homosexuality quotes by Ken Cuccinelli
#34. My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They're intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law based country it's appropriate to have policies that reflect that They don't comport with natural law. I happen to think that it represents (to put it politely; I need my thesaurus to be polite) behavior that is not healthy to an individual and in aggregate is not healthy to society. #Quote by Ken Cuccinelli
Homosexuality quotes by William Shatner
#35. Let women figure out why they won't sleep with you. Don't do their work for them. #Quote by William Shatner
Homosexuality quotes by Krista Ritchie
#36. Whether it's men, women - it doesn't really matter. The human race is filled with passion and lust. And to coin terms like heterosexuality, homosexuality or even bisexuality makes no sense to me. You are human. You love who you love. You fuck who you fuck. That should be enough - no labels. No stigmas. Nothing. Just be to be.
But life isn't that kind. People will always find things to hate. #Quote by Krista Ritchie
Homosexuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#37. Don't we get it? To put our arm around someone who is gay, someone who has an addiction, somebody who lives a different lifestyle, someone who is not what we think they should be ... doing that has nothing to do with enabling them or accepting what they do as okay by us. It has nothing to do with encouraging them in their practice of what you or I might feel or believe is wrong vs right.
It has everything to do with being a good human being. A good person. A good friend. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Homosexuality quotes by Michele Bachmann
#38. It isn't that some gay will get some rights. It's that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Homosexuality quotes by Lilyan Brock
#39. There was no other love that could compare with the love of woman for woman. #Quote by Lilyan Brock
Homosexuality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#40. Homosexuality is neither a sin, nor an anomaly or a disease. It is an evolutionary variation. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Homosexuality quotes by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
#41. How deep congenital sex-inversion roots may be gathered from the fact that the pleasure-dream of the male Urning has to do with male persons, and of the female with females. #Quote by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
Homosexuality quotes by Sigmund Freud
#42. It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty too #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Homosexuality quotes by Jon Stewart
#43. I thinking gay and straight people use the same putters, it's not a matter of putters but a matter of hole selection. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Homosexuality quotes by Trevor D. Richardson
#44. How can we pick and choose which parts of the Bible to follow? One thing is God's will and another is just cultural differences? What if it's all cultural? What if homosexuality or saving yourself for marriage is as outdated as women staying silent in church or Leviticus forbidding tattoos? #Quote by Trevor D. Richardson
Homosexuality quotes by Bertrand Russell
#45. Cruelty is, in theory, a perfectly adequate ground for divorce, but it may be interpreted so as to become absurd. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Homosexuality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#46. Oscar Wilde was suing the Marquis of Queensbury in 1895 for libel accusing Wilde of homosexuality
Counsel: Have you ever adored a young man madly?
Wilde: I have never given adoration to anyone except myself. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Homosexuality quotes by Ian McKellen
#47. When I went to lobby Nelson Mandela while the post-apartheid constitution was being drafted, I asked him to endorse making it illegal to discriminate on grounds of sexuality. I'd been warned that he might giggle if I mentioned homosexuality. #Quote by Ian McKellen
Homosexuality quotes by Desmond Tutu
#48. We struggled against apartheid because we were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about. It is the same with homosexuality. The orientation is a given, not a matter of choice. It would be crazy for someone to choose to be gay, given the homophobia that is present. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Homosexuality quotes by Hubert Selby Jr.
#49. Georgette was a hip queer. She (he) didn't try to disguise or conceal it with marriage and mans talk, satisfying her homosexuality with the keeping of a secret scrapbook of pictures of favorite male actors or athletes or by supervising activities of young boys or visiting turkish baths or mens locker rooms, leering sidely while seeking protection behind a carefully guarded guise of virility (fearing that moment at a cocktail party or in a bar when this front may start crumbling from alcohol and be completely disintegrated with an attempted kiss or groping of an attractive young man and being repelled with a punch and - rotten fairy - followed with hysteria and incoherent apologies and excuses and running from the room) but, took a pride in being a homosexual by feeling intellectually and esthetically superior to those (especially women) who weren't gay (look at all the great artists who were fairies!); and with the wearing of womens panties, lipstick, eye makeup (this including occasionally gold and silver - stardust - on the lids),long marcelled hair, manicured and polished fingernails, the wearing of womens clothes complete with a padded bra, high heels and wig (one of her biggest thrills was going to BOP CITY dressed as a tall stately blond ( she was 6'4 in heels) in the company of a negro (he was a big beautiful black bastard and when he floated in all the cats in the place jumped and the squares bugged. We were at crazy pad before going and were blasting like crazy, and #Quote by Hubert Selby Jr.
Homosexuality quotes by Benjamin Hart
#50. When a minister or a clergyman takes seriously unfashionable Christian doctrines which condemn sex outside marriage, homosexuality, abortion, and feminism, and injects his views into the political debate, he is immediately denounced as a 'reactionary.' #Quote by Benjamin Hart
Homosexuality quotes by Christopher Ryan
#51. Recognized as a way to build and maintain a network of mutually beneficial relationships, nonreproductive sex no longer requires special explanations. Homosexuality, for example, becomes far less confusing, in that it is, as E. O. Wilson has written, above all a form of bonding ... consistent with the greater part of heterosexual behavior as a device that cements relationships. #Quote by Christopher Ryan
Homosexuality quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#52. Nothing optional
from homosexuality to adultery
is ever made punishable unless those who do the prohibiting (and exact the fierce punishment) have a repressed desire to participate. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Homosexuality quotes by Bayard Rustin
#53. It occurred to me shortly after that that it was an absolute necessity for me to declare homosexuality, because if I didn't I was a part of the prejudice. I was aiding and abetting the prejudice that was a part of the effort to destroy me. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Homosexuality quotes by Stephen Fry
#54. You don't sit down and write a wish list about the person you are going to fall violently in love with. It just doesn't work like that. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Homosexuality quotes by Jaron Lanier
#55. Turing presented his new offering in the form of a thought experiment, based on a popular Victorian parlor game. A man and a woman hide, and a judge is asked to determine which is which by relying only on the texts of notes passed back and forth.
Turing replaced the woman with a computer. Can the judge tell which is the man? If not, is the computer conscious? Intelligent? Does it deserve equal rights?
It's impossible for us to know what role the torture Turing was enduring at the time played in his formulation of the test. But it is undeniable that one of the key figures in the defeat of fascism was destroyed, by our side, after the war, because he was gay. No wonder his imagination pondered the rights of strange creatures. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Homosexuality quotes by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
#56. The Jews have never been ashamed of being Jews, whereas homosexuals have been stupid enough to be ashamed of their homosexuality. #Quote by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Homosexuality quotes by David Henry Hwang
#57. Don't forget: there is no homosexuality in China! #Quote by David Henry Hwang
Homosexuality quotes by Michele Bachmann
#58. Our children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and that perhaps they should try it, and that'll be very soon in our public schools all across the state, beginning in kindergarten. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Homosexuality quotes by Malgorzata Szumowska
#59. The attitude of the Catholic Church towards homosexuality is well known - it is treated as something unnatural, even as a disease. #Quote by Malgorzata Szumowska
Homosexuality quotes by Hannah Hart
#60. Nobody is wired wrong, because there's no wrong and right in the way we are. #Quote by Hannah Hart
Homosexuality quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#61. If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable? ... We are born that way. We don't choose it. So shouldn't it be acceptable, excuse - this is according to the way the left thinks about things. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Homosexuality quotes by Stephen Fry
#62. Religionists from pulpits and evangelical TV stations announced that this [AIDS] was all God's punishment for the perverted vice of homosexuality, quite failing to explain why this vengeful deity had no interest in visiting plagues and agonized death upon child rapists, torturers, murderers, those who beat up old women for their pension money (or indeed those cheating, thieving, adulterous and hypocritical clerics and preachers who pop up on the news from time to time weeping their repentance), reserving this uniquely foul pestilence only for men who choose to go to bed with each other and addicts careless in the use of their syringes. What a strange divinity. Later he was to take his pleasure, as he still does, on horrifying numbers of women and very young girls raped in sub-Saharan Africa while transmitting his avenging wrath on the unborn children in their wombs. I should be interested to hear from the religious zealots why he is doing this and what kind of a kick he gets out of it. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Homosexuality quotes by Bruce LaBruce
#63. In terms of homosexuality, not everyone is prepared for a daily struggle against nature. In some ways, people who challenge and subvert their biologically-determined body are struggling against nature. It's a mysterious combination of nature and nurture that determines a person's gender, and for whatever reason some people are driven to challenge their biological "destiny". It's a difficult struggle, and I believe it takes a lot of courage. #Quote by Bruce LaBruce
Homosexuality quotes by Bristol Palin
#64. However, if you don't agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others' opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn't support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic. #Quote by Bristol Palin
Homosexuality quotes by Derek Jarman
#65. Understand that sexuality is as wide as the sea. Understand that your morality is not law. Understand that we are you. Understand that if we decide to have sex whether safe, safer, or unsafe, it is our decision and you have no rights in our lovemaking. #Quote by Derek Jarman
Homosexuality quotes by Marcel Proust
#66. But for the invert vice begins, not when he establishes a relationship (for too many reasons may govern that), but when he takes his pleasure with women. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Homosexuality quotes by Harry A. Blackmun
#67. Disapproval of homosexuality cannot justify invading the houses, hearts and minds of citizens who choose to live their lives differently. #Quote by Harry A. Blackmun
Homosexuality quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#68. True same-sex love is trillions of times stronger than homophobia. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Homosexuality quotes by Jane Ellen Nickell
#69. The issue of homosexuality in the church is complex, highly charged, and defined by misrecognized fears related to rapid social change and the perceived threat to familiar social institutions and the sense of security they represent. Underlying this conflict are the church's historic discomfort with issues of sexuality, and dualistic constructions that codify that unease into categories of sexual insiders (monogamous heterosexuals and celibates) and outsiders (everybody else). These have been magnified in recent years by cultural differences between different generations and African countries where the church has grown. #Quote by Jane Ellen Nickell
Homosexuality quotes by Ronald Goldman
#70. The diagnosis of homosexuality as a "disorder" is a contributing factor to the pathology of those homosexuals who do become mentally ill ... Nothing is more likely to make you sick than being constantly told that you are sick. #Quote by Ronald Goldman
Homosexuality quotes by E.J. Squires
#71. President Volkov say there's no such thing as a homosexual person but that homosexuality is a #Quote by E.J. Squires
Homosexuality quotes by Chantal Zabus
#72. African "homosexualities" can never be comfortably slotted within identity politics carved out of Western "gay" and "lesbian" liberation struggles, and display queer and even post-queer characteristics. #Quote by Chantal Zabus
Homosexuality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#73. Homosexuality is nature's way of keeping the population in check. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Homosexuality quotes by Fred Phelps
#74. Not only is homosexuality a sin, but anyone who supports fags is just as guilty as they are. You are both worthy of death. #Quote by Fred Phelps
Homosexuality quotes by Ryan Murphy
#75. I've gotten death threats, yes. I have. I think anytime you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy as acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don't like that and they will come after you. And they have come after me. #Quote by Ryan Murphy
Homosexuality quotes by Robert Brustein
#76. The love that previously dared not speak its name has now grown hoarse from screaming it. #Quote by Robert Brustein
Homosexuality quotes by John W. Miller
#77. Homosexuality is the sexual plague of a monogamous society gone promiscuous. These societies that sow the winds of heterosexual freedom ironically reap the whirlwind of homosexual perversion. #Quote by John W. Miller
Homosexuality quotes by Jimmy Carter
#78. In the bible homosexuality is condemned, but along with divorce and greed and callousness toward poor people. So its elevation to a highest priority among some religious groups has been very disturbing to me. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Homosexuality quotes by Bill Gaede
#79. I, faggot Wenqing Kang, Ph. D. in History from UC Santa Cruz, do solemnly swear that homosexual relationships between men are more enjoyable and more harmonious than heterosexual relationships. #Quote by Bill Gaede
Homosexuality quotes by Elton John
#80. I suspected my homosexuality, but I'd never acted out on it because I was afraid of sex. It's awful to be afraid of sex. #Quote by Elton John
Homosexuality quotes by Todd Haynes
#81. People define gay cinema solely by content: if there are gay characters in it, it's a gay film ... I think that's really simplistic. Heterosexuality to me is a structure as much as it is a content. It is an imposed structure that goes along with the patriarchal, dominant structure that constrains and defines society. If homosexuality is the opposite or counter-sexual activity to that, then what kind of a structure would it be? #Quote by Todd Haynes
Homosexuality quotes by Edmund White
#82. The scorn directed against drags is especially virulent; they have become the outcasts of gay life, the "queers" of homosexuality.In fact, they are classic scapegoats. Our old fears about our sissiness, still with us though masked by the new macho fascism, are now located, isolated, quarantined through our persecution of the transvestite. #Quote by Edmund White
Homosexuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#83. I think it doesn't matter if you or I or anybody else thinks homosexuality is a sin. It doesn't matter if you or I think anything is a sin. It doesn't matter if homosexuality is a sin or not. In fact, it doesn't matter if anything anybody else does is a sin or not.
Because sin is a very personal thing! It always has been and it always will be!
And it has nothing to do with love. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Homosexuality quotes by Ivan E. Coyote
#84. Any knowledge of homosexuality I might have had would have gone back to Victorian times. All those novels. You probably skirted under my radar, because you weren't wearing hoop skirts and high button boots. #Quote by Ivan E. Coyote
Homosexuality quotes by John Naisbitt
#85. I was totally surprised by the spread of the legalization of same-sex marriage. In just my lifetime we have gone from a taboo to even talk about homosexuality, to the sanction by governments of homosexual marriage. Few such large social considerations have ever before been turned over in such a short time. #Quote by John Naisbitt
Homosexuality quotes by Bill Gaede
#86. Lacking medicines and procedures that could do anything for them, the American Psychiatric and Psychological Associations decided to take homosexuality off the list of mental disorders and declare the alarming rise in the tide faggots as normal. #Quote by Bill Gaede
Homosexuality quotes by Richard Dunphy
#87. [A]t least since the late nineteenth century when the primary role in categorising sexual behaviour and naming what is 'normal' and what is 'perverse' passed, in most industrial societies, from the religious to the medical and scientific professions, we have lived with the notion of distinct categories of people labelled 'homosexual' and 'heterosexual'. (The category 'homosexual' was coined by the Viennese writer Karol Benkert in 1869, 'heterosexual' emerging somewhat later.) Since that time, new discourses have tried to establish the male 'homosexual' as a distinct type of person - as opposed to same-sex attraction or same-sex acts being seen as a potential in everyone. As Peter Tatchell ['It's Just a Phase: Why Homosexuality is Doomed', in Simpson (ed.), Anti-Gay, London: Cassell. 1996] puts it, 'prior to that time … there were only homosexual acts, not homosexual people … [For] the medieval Catholic Church … homosexuality was not … the special sin of a unique class of people but a dangerous temptation to which any mortal might succumb. This doctrine implicitly conceded the attractiveness of same-sex desire, and unwittingly acknowledged its pervasive, universal potential #Quote by Richard Dunphy
Homosexuality quotes by Robert Shea
#88. Every man's penis is the prettiest thing in the world to him. From the day he's born until the day he dies. It never loses its endless fascination. And, I kid you not, baby, the same is true of every woman and her pussy. It's the closest thing to a real, blind, helpless love and religious adoration that most people ever achieve. But they'd rather die than admit it. Homosexuality, the urge to kill, petty spites and treacheries, fantasies of sadism, masochism, transvestism, any weird thing you can name, they'll confess all that in a group therapy session. But that deep submerged constant narcissism, that perpetual mental masturbation, is the earliest and most powerful block. They'll never admit it. #Quote by Robert Shea
Homosexuality quotes by Todd Haynes
#89. The ways in which Oscar Wilde was attacking the Romantics that preceded him, and the Romantic ideas that preceded him, were very similar to what the glam-rockers, particularly Bowie and Bryan Ferry, were attacking in the earnestness of '60s culture. Trying to shock, but with wit, cleverness, and homosexuality. #Quote by Todd Haynes
Homosexuality quotes by Armistead Maupin
#90. I think a lot of gay people who are not dealing with their homosexuality get into right- wing politics. #Quote by Armistead Maupin
Homosexuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#91. The greatest spiritual leaders in history have all preached love for others as the basis for all happiness, and never did they accompany such mandates with a list of unlovable actions or deeds. They never said, love everybody except for the gays. Love everybody except for the homeless. Love everybody except for the drug users. Love everybody except for the gang members, or those covered in ink, or the spouse abusers. They didn't tell us it was okay to love everybody with the exception of the "trailer trash," those living in poverty, or the illegal immigrants. They didn't tell us it was okay to love everybody except for our ex-lovers, our lovers' ex lovers, or our ex-lovers' lovers. The mandate was pretty damn clear, wasn't it?
Love others.
Period. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Homosexuality quotes by Novala Takemoto
#92. An element of fantasy is needed when falling in love and I was unable to find the fantasy element with any of the male gender #Quote by Novala Takemoto
Homosexuality quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#93. What remains of the old Protestant fundamentalism is politics: abortion, gays, evolution. these issues are what binds congregations together. but even here things have changed as Americans have become more tolerant of many of these social taboos. Today many fundamentalist churches take nominally tough positions on, say, homosexuality but increasingly do little else for fear of offending the average believer, whom one schollar calls the "unchurched Harry". All it really takes to be a fundamentalist these days is to watch the TV shows, go to the theme parks, buy Christian rock, and vote Republican. The Sociologist Mark Shilbey, calls it the Californication of conservative Protestantism. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Homosexuality quotes by George Carlin
#94. I knew a transsexual guy whose only ambition is to eat, drink, and be Mary. #Quote by George Carlin
Homosexuality quotes by Christopher Moore
#95. In Breeze's business one got used to running across the skeletons in people's closets. If Billy's skeleton wore women's underwear, it didn't really matter. Homosexuality on Billy Winston was like acne on a leper. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Homosexuality quotes by Chantal Zabus
#96. Some colonies were even reputed as being paradises of homosexual debauchery. Indeed, in French, faire passer son brevet colonial, that is, to take one's colonial certificate, mean initiating a young recruit to sodomy, that is, intercourse ,i> per anum during which the noviciate would play the role of the insertee. #Quote by Chantal Zabus
Homosexuality quotes by Cecilia Malmstrom
#97. There is an alarming increase of violence and harassment against gay people, something that is being legitimized by the regime as they brand homosexuality as something abnormal and dangerous to children. #Quote by Cecilia Malmstrom

#98. People have known of Shakespeare's homosexuality down through the ages. #Quote by George Weinberg
Homosexuality quotes by Aaron Sorkin
#99. President Josiah Bartlet: Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.

Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.

President Josiah Bartlet: Yes, it does. Leviticus.

Dr. Jenna Jacobs: 18:22.

President Josiah Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important 'cause we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: Touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: While you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignora #Quote by Aaron Sorkin
Homosexuality quotes by Matthew Vines
#100. Homosexuality, to the limited extent it was discussed in our church, was little more than a political football, a quick test of orthodoxy. #Quote by Matthew Vines
Homosexuality quotes by John Price
#101. Since 9/11 what we have seen, and now increasingly understand in more depth than Christians in past generations, is that the final enemies of Jesus and of His people are not who we thought they would be. It may be surprising to learn that the future prophesied destroyers of the United States, and the purported conquerors of the world, pray regularly each day, prohibit abortion, denounce homosexuality, and forbid alcohol. Who are these people? Christian fundamentalists? Well, not quite. #Quote by John Price
Homosexuality quotes by Joy E Corey
#102. It's interesting to note that while homosexuals say that genetics is everything - and predetermines homosexuality (which it doesn't), and that we should always be true to our genes, transsexuals say that genetics is nothing, and that we should not be true to our genes if this displeases us. And the gay community, in supporting transsexualism, sees no contradiction in this. #Quote by Joy E Corey
Homosexuality quotes by Edward Carpenter
#103. Anyhow, with their extraordinary gift for, and experience in, affairs of the heart from the double point of view, both of the man and of the woman it is not difficult to see that these people have a special work to do as reconcilers and interpreters of the two sexes to each other. #Quote by Edward Carpenter
Homosexuality quotes by Dorothy Parker
#104. Heterosexuality is not normal, it's just common. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Homosexuality quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#105. Leviticus 18 doesn't tell us everything we need to know about sex, but it gives us the basic rules: incest is bad (vv. 6-27); taking a rival wife is bad (v 18) ... adultery is bad (v 20); killing our children is bad (v 21); homosexuality activity is bad (v 22); and bestiality is bad (v 23). #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Homosexuality quotes by James Baldwin
#106. Everybody's journey is individual. If you fall in love with a boy, you fall in love with a boy. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality. #Quote by James Baldwin
Homosexuality quotes by Thomas Szasz
#107. The disease concept of homosexuality as with the disease concept of all so-called mental illnesses, such as alcoholism, drug addiction, or suicide conceals the fact that homosexuals are a group of medically stigmatized and socially persecuted individuals ... Their anguished cries of protest are drowned out by the rhetoric of therapy just as the rhetoric of salvation drowned out the [cries] of heretics. #Quote by Thomas Szasz
Homosexuality quotes by Michele Bachmann
#108. And what a bizarre time we're in, Jan, when a judge will say to little children that you can't say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Homosexuality quotes by George Orwell
#109. It will be seen that, as used, the word 'Fascism' is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley's broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else. #Quote by George Orwell
Homosexuality quotes by Jet Mykles
#110. Straight? So is spaghetti until you heat it up #Quote by Jet Mykles
Homosexuality quotes by Bruce H. Lipton
#111. Perhaps if more people realized that coupling in higher organisms is fundamentally about bonding, not only about the drive to reproduce, there would be less prejudice against homosexuality. In fact, homosexuality is natural and common in the animal kingdom. In a 2009 review of the scientific literature, University of California at Riverside biologists Nathan W. Bailey and Marlene Zuk, who advocate more study about the evolutionary impetus for homosexual behavior, state, The variety and ubiquity of same-sex sexual behavior in animals is impressive; many thousands of instances of same-sex courtship, pair bonding and copulation have been observed in a wide range of species, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, mollusks, and nematodes. #Quote by Bruce H. Lipton
Homosexuality quotes by Susan Estrich
#112. Every time I hear someone making ignorant comments about the supposed 'evils' of homosexuality, I think about the true evil of the high suicide rates among gay and lesbian teens. #Quote by Susan Estrich
Homosexuality quotes by Kevin Roose
#113. Then there's the Day of Purity, which I must admit I don't understand at all. If the day is a celebration of premarital abstinence, as Dean Staver said, then why was 50 or 60 percent of his convocation speech about homosexuality and the redefinition of gender boundaries? What does that have to do with not having sex? Is the implication that if gay marriage is legalized, Christian boyfriends and girlfriends will turn to each other, shrug their shoulders, and say, Well, gee, might as well? From what I can tell, not a whole lot of forethought has gone into the holiday. #Quote by Kevin Roose
Homosexuality quotes by Pat Buchanan
#114. Homosexuality is not a civil right. Its rise almost always is accompanied, as in the Weimar Republic, with a decay of society and a collapse of its basic cinder block, the family. #Quote by Pat Buchanan
Homosexuality quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#115. When, for example, in the name of non-discrimination, people try to force the Catholic Church to change her position on homosexuality or the ordination of women, then that means that she is no longer allowed to live out her own identity and that, instead, an abstract, negative religion is being made into a tyrannical standard that everyone must follow. That is then seemingly freedom - for the sole reason that it is liberation from the previous situation. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Homosexuality quotes by Sara Miles
#116. The faith I was finding was jagged and more difficult. It wasn't about abstract theological debates: Does God exist? Are sin and salvation predestined? Or even about political/ideological ones: Is capital punishment a sin? Is there a scriptural foundation for accepting homosexuality? It was about action. Taste and see, the Bible said, and I did. #Quote by Sara Miles
Homosexuality quotes by Ed Koch
#117. It happens that I'm heterosexual, but I don't care about that. I do care about protecting the rights of 10 percent of our population who are homosexual and who don't have the ability to protect their rights. #Quote by Ed Koch
Homosexuality quotes by Larry Kramer
#118. I've spent fifteen years of my life fighting for our right to be free and make love whenever, wherever ... And you're telling me that all those years of what being gay stood for is wrong ... and I'm a murderer. We have been so oppressed! Don't you remember how it was? Can't you see how important it is for us to love openly, without hiding and without guilt? #Quote by Larry Kramer
Homosexuality quotes by Paul Monette
#119. But the fevers are on me now, the virus mad to ravage my last fifty T cells. It's hard to keep the memory at full dazzle, with so much loss to mock it. Roger gone, Craig gone, Cesar gone, Stevie gone. And this feeling that I'm the last one left, in a world where only the ghosts still laugh. But at least they're the ghosts of full-grown men, proof that all of us got that far, free of the traps and the lies. And from that moment on the brink of summer's end, no one would ever tell me again that men like me couldn't love. #Quote by Paul Monette
Homosexuality quotes by Cristina Marrero
#120. The thing about gay marriage is simply that it's not gay. It's marriage. If you are uncomfortable with marriage, you can not outlaw marriage. And, shocking, even if homosexuality makes someone uncomfortable, one can not outlaw identifying as or practicing homosexuality. So seeing as both homosexuality and marriage are legal, their being combined should be no big deal. #Quote by Cristina Marrero
Homosexuality quotes by Kerri E. Lorenz
#121. Humans are so ignorant. That word means something else, but you use it to try to insult others. You do realize that only humans view such things as homosexuality as a sin. In the other realms it is nothing it doesn't exist as love is love and gender matters not. #Quote by Kerri E. Lorenz
Homosexuality quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#122. But before we get up close to the trees, we should step back and make sure we are gazing upon the same forest. As is so often the case with controversial matters, we will never agree on the smaller subplots if it turns out we aren't even telling the same story. The Bible says something about homosexuality. I hope everyone can agree on at least that much. And I hope everyone can agree that the Bible is manifestly not a book about homosexuality. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Homosexuality quotes by Rictor Norton
#123. Homophobia is a construct while homosexuality is innate. #Quote by Rictor Norton
Homosexuality quotes by Nancy Garden
#124. I went downstairs to Dad's encyclopedia and looked up HOMOSEXUALITY, but that didn't tell me much about any of the things I felt. What struck me most, though, was that, in the whole long article, the word "love" wasn't used even once. That made me mad; it was as if whoever wrote the article didn't know that gay people actually love each other. The encyclopedia writers ought to talk to me, I thought as I went back to bed; I could tell them something about love. #Quote by Nancy Garden
Homosexuality quotes by Christina Westover
#125. It angered him that his sexuality was an issue at all. As far as he was concerned, who he decided to sleep with was his business alone. #Quote by Christina Westover
Homosexuality quotes by Gilles Herrada
#126. Without a positive representation in the mythos to consolidate its sociocultural existence, homosexuality remains completely vulnerable to a resurgence of homophobia and scapegoating. #Quote by Gilles Herrada
Homosexuality quotes by Sigmund Freud
#127. A man's heterosexuality will not put up with any homosexuality, and vice versa. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Homosexuality quotes by Xavier Dolan
#128. Homosexuality is like an inside baseball thing. It's like a gag that people share; 'How is your husband?' But when it comes to bringing diversity to a broader audience, suddenly it's a different road. It's what we call 'a risk.' Isn't it our responsibility to elevate the standards and change people's perceptions? #Quote by Xavier Dolan
Homosexuality quotes by Dennis Sharpe
#129. Like all men who look this good, Frank has no interest in women. #Quote by Dennis Sharpe
Homosexuality quotes by George Chauncey
#130. [...] Claiming certain historical figures was important to gay men not only because it validated their own homosexuality, but because it linked them to others. One of the ways groups of people constitute themselves as an ethnic, religious or national community is by constructing a history that provides its members with a shared tradition and collective ancestors. This was a central purpose of the projece of gay historical reclamation as well. By constructing historical traditions of their own, gay men defined themselves as a distinct community. By imagining they had collective roots in the past, they asserted a collective identity in the present. #Quote by George Chauncey
Homosexuality quotes by Rictor Norton
#131. Homosexuality is not a political choice; it is dictated by the imperatives of desire. #Quote by Rictor Norton
Homosexuality quotes by Andrea Thompson
#132. I have no problem with it. I don't look on homosexuality as an aberration. It's just they way they're born, and how could any relationship between two people in a committed relationship be wrong, regardless of gender? #Quote by Andrea Thompson
Homosexuality quotes by Amber Cantorna
#133. If you persist in continually chipping away at your bad theology, eventually the lies will crumble, and you will uncover nuggets of truth that will set you free. #Quote by Amber Cantorna
Homosexuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#134. Make life easier for those around you, not harder.
Every person you know is fighting their own great battle. Few of us ever know what those battles entail, and so often we say and do things that push others deeper and harder into the front lines of those battles. I know such has been the relentless lifelong reality for me.
Love a person for the person that they are.
Or dislike them for the person that they are.
But don't love or dislike them for the sole reason that they see people differently than you do. Don't love or dislike them because they experience the world differently than you do.
And please don't eternally and wholly define them with sexual labels just because they were among those who finally found the courage to acknowledge their truth. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Homosexuality quotes by Zadie Smith
#135. I cannot believe homosexuality is that much fun. Heterosexuality certainly is not. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Homosexuality quotes by Alison Weir
#136. A husband or wife did not have the right either to demand sex from his or her spouse or to refuse it, and there was a catalogue of forbidden sexual practices, notably homosexuality, bestiality, certain sexual positions, masturbation, the use of aphrodisiacs, and oral sex, which could incur a penance of three years' duration. Nor were people to make love on Sundays, holy days, or feast days, or during Lent, pregnancy, or menstruation. People believed that if these rules were disobeyed, deformed children or lepers might result. #Quote by Alison Weir
Homosexuality quotes by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
#137. Nature has made a mistake in the choice of my sexuality and I must do a life-long penance for it, for the moral power to suffer the unavoidable with dignity is lost. #Quote by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
Homosexuality quotes by Brene Brown
#138. When looking at the attributes associated with masculinity in the US, the same researchers identified the following; winning, emotional control, risk-taking, violence, dominance, playboy, self-reliance, primacy at work, power over women, disdain for homosexuality, and pursuit of status. #Quote by Brene Brown
Homosexuality quotes by Alfred Kinsey
#139. Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheeps and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white. #Quote by Alfred Kinsey
Homosexuality quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#140. The Auden/Kallman relationship had this to be said for it: It affirmed that it's better to be blatant than latent. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Homosexuality quotes by Darrell Drake
#141. Unnatural, unorthodox, amoral: those pretensions crumble when confronted by true happiness. You shouldn't give another the authority to draw a line defining the boundaries of acceptable joy. #Quote by Darrell Drake
Homosexuality quotes by Euripides
#142. It is a good thing to be rich and strong, but it is a better thing to be loved. #Quote by Euripides
Homosexuality quotes by Mark Lilla
#143. Equal protection under the law is not a hard principle to convince Americans of. The difficulty comes in persuading them that it has been violated in particular cases, and of the need to redress the wrong. Prejudice and indifference run deep. Education, social reform, and political action can persuade some. But most people will not feel the sufferings of others unless they feel, even in an abstract way, that 'it could have been me or someone close to me'. Consider the astonishingly rapid transformation of American attitudes toward homosexuality and even gay marriage over the past decades. Gay activism brought these issues to public attention but attitudes were changed during tearful conversations over dinner tables across American when children came out to their parents (and, sometimes, parents came out to their children). Once parents began to accept their children, extended families did too, and today same-sex marriages are celebrated across the country with all the pomp and joy and absurd overspending of traditional American marriages. Race is a wholly different matter. Given the segregation in American society white families have little chance of seeing and therefore understanding the lives of black Americans. I am not black male motorist and never will be. All the more reason, then, that I need some way to identify with one if I am going to be affected by his experience. And citizenship is the only thing I know we share. The more differences between us are emphasized, th #Quote by Mark Lilla
Homosexuality quotes by Iain Banks
#144. There's something very ... I don't know; primitive, perhaps, about you, Gurgeh. You've never changed sex, have you?' He shook his head. 'Or slept with a man?' Another shake. 'I thought so,' Yay said. 'You're strange, Gurgeh.' She drained her glass. #Quote by Iain Banks

Homosexuality quotes by John Green
#146. Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I'm changing it to 'God Hates Baguettes.' It's tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes. #Quote by John Green
Homosexuality quotes by Hendrik Hertzberg
#147. Marriage should be between a spouse and a spouse, not a gender and a gender. #Quote by Hendrik Hertzberg
Homosexuality quotes by Seth
#148. Am saying that lesbianism, homosexuality, and heterosexuality are valid expressions of man's bisexual nature.
I am also stressing the fact that love and sexuality are not necessarily the same thing. Sex is love's expression, but it is only one of love's expressions. #Quote by Seth
Homosexuality quotes by Pete Townshend
#149. Barriers were being torn down. Where Freddie Mercury was trying to keep his homosexuality from the front pages, Boy George was openly & outrageously gay. #Quote by Pete Townshend
Homosexuality quotes by Celine Kiernan
#150. On the Hunger Games Fan Race fail and the portrayal of POC in fantasy literature:
It is as if the POC in the text are walking around with a great big red sign over them for some editors and it reads I AM NOT A REAL CHARACTER. I AM A PROBLEM YOU MUST DEAL WITH. The white characters are permitted to saunter about with their physical descriptions hanging out all over the place, but best not make mention of dark skin or woolly/curly hair or dark eyes (Unless, of course, that character is white. None of my white-skinned dark-eyed characters had any problem being described as such. And I'm pretty sure that Sól's curly hair never gave anyone a single pause for thought.) As I said, I understand the desire not to define a POC simply by their physical attributes, and I understand cutting physical descriptions if no other character is described physically – but pussyfooting about in this manner with POC is doing nothing but white wash the characters themselves. It's already much too hard to get readers to latch onto the fact that some characters may not be caucasian, why must we dance about their physical description as if it were some kind of shameful dirty little secret. You know what it reminds me of? It reminds me of the way homosexuality used to only ever be hinted at in texts. It was up to the reader to 'read between the lines' or 'its there if you look for it' and all that total bullshit which used to be the norm. #Quote by Celine Kiernan
Homosexuality quotes by Barbara Gittings
#151. What the homosexual wants, and here he is neither willing to compromise nor morally required to compromise - is acceptance of homosexuality as a way of life fully on a par with heterosexuality. #Quote by Barbara Gittings
Homosexuality quotes by Kevin Roose
#152. It's hard to keep harping on Liberty's intolerance, though, because just as my aunts are nothing like the demonized stereotypes of gay people that are tossed around at Liberty (they're both psychologically balanced, with stable jobs, healthy family lives, and a long-term, monogamous relationship), the majority of my friends at Liberty aren't the intolerant demagogues Tina and Teresa picture when they think of Liberty students. In Tina's latest e-mail, she mentioned that she and Teresa had run into a group of fundamentalist Christians at an equality rally in Spokane. She described them as "negative and hateful," and reported that they were toting signs with messages like "You deserve Hell" and "God is angry with the wicked every day." Maybe I'm deluded, but that just doesn't sound like my hallmates. Most of them believe homosexuality is a sin, yes, but they're not going to picket pride parades on the weekend. #Quote by Kevin Roose
Homosexuality quotes by Scott A. Butler
#153. A defeat for humanity would be the failure to recognise the rights of two people who love each other.

A defeat for humanity is that people accept such hatred and discrimination into their hearts.

A defeat for humanity would be the failure of the church to recognise that nobody can control who a person loves.

A victory for humanity would be the dissolution of a theocratic dystopia that promotes anti-equality (aka "the Vatican") which has no place in a modern society. #Quote by Scott A. Butler
Homosexuality quotes by Stephen Fry
#154. You think homosexuality is disgusting? Then, it follows, it follows as the night the day, that you find sex disgusting, for there is nothing done between two men or two women that is, by any objective standard, different from that which is done between a man and a woman. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Homosexuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#155. The world is so obsessed with defining sexuality for everyone and attaching labels to it. Any time any person openly leaves the sexual norm, their sexuality becomes, more often than not, the absolute defining characteristic of that person. It becomes the first thing people think about and often the first thing they mention. Every other part of that person all but disappears. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Homosexuality quotes by James McGreevey
#156. As a child, recognizing my difference from other kids, I went to the local public library to try to better understand my reality. Back then, many library card catalogues didn't even list 'homosexuality' as a topic. #Quote by James McGreevey
Homosexuality quotes by Unkown Author
#157. The Perfect Man.

The perfect man is gentle,
Never cruel or mean.
He has an beautiful smile,
And keeps his face so clean.

The perfect man likes children,
And will raise them by your side.
He will be a good father,
As well as an good husband to his bride.

The perfect man loves cooking ,
Cleaning and vacuuming too.
He will do anything in his power,
To convey his feelings of love on you.

The perfect man is sweet ,
Writing poetry from your name.
He's an best freind to your mother,
And kisses away your pain.

He has never made you cry,
Or hurt you in any way.
Oh f*** this stupid poem,
The perfect man is GAY! #Quote by Unkown Author

The hot water pools are steaming, Fagan and Monsanto and the others are all sitting peacefully up to their necks, they're all naked, but there's a gang of fairies also there naked all standing in various bath house postures that make me hesitate to take my clothes off just on general principles.

Homosexuality quotes by Huey P. Newton
#162. Whatever your personal opinions and your insecurities about homosexuality and the various liberation movements among homosexuals and women (and I speak of the homosexuals and women as oppressed groups), we should try to unite with them in a revolutionary fashion.
I say "whatever your insecurities are" because as we very well know, sometimes our first instinct is to want to hit a homosexual in the mouth, and want a woman to be quiet. We want to hit a homosexual in the mouth because we are afraid that we might be homosexual; and we want to hit the women or shut her up because we are afraid that she might castrate us, or take the nuts that we might not have to start with.
We must gain security in ourselves and therefore have respect and feelings for all oppressed people. #Quote by Huey P. Newton
Homosexuality quotes by Kevin Roose
#163. The trick to being a rebel at Liberty, I've learned, is knowing which parts of the Liberty social code are non-negotiable. For example, Joey and his friends listen to vulgarity-filled secular hip-hop, but you'll never catch them defending homosexuality. (On the contrary, Joey's insults of choice are "queer" and "gaywad.") And although they might harass the naïve pastors' kids on the hall by stealing their towels from the shower stalls - leaving them naked, wet, and stranded - they'd be the first people to tell you why Mormonism is a false religion. In other words, Liberty's true social code, the one they don't put in a forty-six-page manual, has everything to do with being a social and religious conservative and not a whole lot to do with acting in any traditionally virtuous way. #Quote by Kevin Roose
Homosexuality quotes by Ricky Martin

Homosexuality quotes by Armistead Maupin
#165. When I started writing Tales of the City I was one year away from being a mental illness. It wasn't until 1975 that the American Psychiatric Association took homosexuality off the list of mental illnesses - and in many states, including the state of North Carolina where I grew up, homosexuality was a crime. An arrestable crime. It still is, in many parts of the world. #Quote by Armistead Maupin
Homosexuality quotes by Jennifer Ryan

#174. The busybody (banned as sexist, demeaning to older women) who lives next door called my daughter a tomboy (banned as sexist) when she climbed the jungle (banned; replaced with "rain forest") gym.

Homosexuality quotes by Isaiah Seber
#175. There are ancient works, written by monks that identify with Japanese's Zen monks practicing homosexuality.

Still, Buddhist have been known to practice the art of one woman having multiple husbands. #Quote by Isaiah Seber
Homosexuality quotes by Justin Lee
#176. Today's young people have gay friends whom they love. If they view the church as an unsafe for them, a place more focused on politics than on people, we just might be raising the most anti-Christian generation America has ever seen, a generation that believes they have to choose between loving and being Christian. #Quote by Justin Lee

What a horrible feeling that is, to know that if the disease [AIDS] had primarily affected PTA presidents, or priests, or white teenage girls, the epidemic would have been ended years earlier, and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved. #Quote by David Levithan
Homosexuality quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#180. In the trenches of the First World War, English men came to love one another decently, without shame or make-believe, under the easy likelihoods of their sudden deaths, and to find in the faces of other young men evidence of otherworldly visits, some poor hope that may have helped redeem even mud, shit, the decaying pieces of human meat... It was the end of the world, it was total revolution (though not quite in the way Walter Rathenau had announced): every day thousands of the aristocracy new and old, still haloed in their ideas of right and wrong, went to the loud guillotine of Flanders, run day in and out, on and on, by no visible hands, certainly not those of the people - an English class was being decimated, the ones who'd volunteered were dying for those who'd known something and hadn't, and despite it all, despite knowing, some of them, of the betrayal, while Europe died meanly in its own wastes, men loved. But the life-cry of that love has long since hissed away into no more than this idle and bitchy faggotry. In this latest War, death was no enemy, but a collaborator. Homosexuality in high places is just a carnal afterthought now, and the real and only fucking is done on paper... #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Homosexuality quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#181. Given its diverse meanings and lack of specificity, the word "scientism" should be dropped. But if it's to be kept, I suggest we level the playing field by introducing the term religionism, which I'll define as "the tendency of religion to overstep its boundaries by making unwarranted statements about the universe, or by demanding unearned authority." Religionism would include clerics claiming to be moral authorities, arguments that scientific phenomena give evidence for God, and unsupported statements about the nature of a god and how he interacts with the world. And here we find no lack of examples, including believers who blame natural disasters on homosexuality, tell us that God doesn't want us to use condoms, argue that the acceptance of evolution by scientists is a conspiracy, and insist that human morality and the universe's "fine-tuning" are evidence for God. #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Homosexuality quotes by Tim LaHaye
#182. As important as the father is in the life of a child, even he must take second place to mother during the first three years of life ... Consequently, mothers actually have more to do with producing a predisposition toward homosexuality than fathers. Two kinds of mothers are particularly harmful - smother mothers and dominating mothers. #Quote by Tim LaHaye
Homosexuality quotes by John Price
#183. CBS News reported in 2004 that Saudi Arabia recently beheaded 52 men and one woman for various crimes, including murder, homosexuality, armed robbery, and drug trafficking. The CBS Report revealed that "A condemned convict is brought into the courtyard, hands tied, and forced to bow before an executioner, who swings a huge sword amid cries from onlookers of 'Allahu Akbar!' Arabic for 'God is Great. #Quote by John Price
Homosexuality quotes by Justin Lee
#184. I pray that Christian parents will heed the message of this parable and treat their children with that kind of love, even when they disagree on issues like homosexuality. If we can't get this right within our own families, how are we supposed to get it right on a larger scale? A loving response must start at home. #Quote by Justin Lee
Homosexuality quotes by Alvin Bailey
#185. Our emancipation means standing up for strong families, our emancipation means standing against the homosexuality agenda, emancipation for us means standing up against the repealing of the buggery law. #Quote by Alvin Bailey
Homosexuality quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown
#186. Make no mistake, hiding one's true self away in a closet and creating a facade of heterosexuality is not without its consequences. It may appear to have a degree of safety but from my experience they are very unhealthy places and do all kinds of terrible things to individuals psychologically, emotionally and behaviourally ... to say nothing of projection. The damage of the fear, shame, guilt and self-loathing that exist inside a closet are often reflected unknowingly in the external life of the individual. In or out of the closet; there is a price to pay. Each individual must weigh up the consequences of honesty, openness, secrecy and deception for themselves. Coming out, for most of us, is like an exorcism that releases us of the darkness we have lived in for years and caused us to believe awful things about ourselves. On the other side of the looking glass are freedom, light and life. #Quote by Anthony Venn-Brown
Homosexuality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#187. The moment sex ceases to be a servant it becomes a tyrant. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Homosexuality quotes by Norman Mailer
#188. There is probably no heterosexual alive who is not preoccupied with his latent homosexuality. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Homosexuality quotes by Gore Vidal
#189. [Norman Mailer] is against masturbation, he's against homosexuality. He believes that murder is essentially sexual. I think he's rather an anthology of all the darkest American traits. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Homosexuality quotes by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick
#190. The ability of anyone in the culture to support and honour gay kids may depend on an ability to name them as such, notwithstanding that many gay adults may never have been gay kids and some gay kids may not turn into gay adults. #Quote by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick
Homosexuality quotes by Leah
#191. If you think love can be anything why do we decide to ignore how others think love should be?

Why is there laws about love, if it can be anything?

Why in some countries is it illegal to marry your own kind if love can be anything?

My point is people hear what they want, say what they want, watch what they want, but they can't love how they want. The only thing free about the U.S.A is freedom of speech. We can't love in any way we want at all. #Quote by Leah
Homosexuality quotes by Anthony Marais
#192. Homosexuality is the most beautiful aspect of humanity. For its existence is proof that altruism is natural; it is to demonstrate that the theory of the "survival of the fittest" can only apply to the species as a whole, and that reproduction is insufficient to secure our place in the great jungle of life, which means being nice is a more stable evolutionary strategy than making kids; and if the homosexual is attracted to religion or to art - or, in smaller societies, to shamanism or caring for other people's children - is this not due to his or her search for purpose? If so, then what we call purpose must be something that encompasses all modes of life. What we call love must be greater than child rearing or caring for a mate. #Quote by Anthony Marais
Homosexuality quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#193. Turns out, I wasn't the only one struggling with doubt. I wasn't the only one questioning my church's position on homosexuality and gender roles, and a whole host of other issues. I wasn't the only one who felt lonely on Sunday mornings. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Homosexuality quotes by New York Public Library
#194. No, this wasn't a 1960s student riot. Out there were the streets. There were no nice dorms for sleeping. No school cafeteria for certain food. No affluent parents to send us checks. There was a ghetto riot on home turf. We already had our war wounds. So this was just another battle. Nobody thought of it as history, herstory, my-story, your-story, or our-story. We were being denied a place to dance together. That's all. The total charisma of a revolution in our CONSCIOUSNESS rising from the gutter to the gut to the heart and the mind was here. Non-existence (or part existence) was coming into being, and being into becoming. Our Mother Stonewall was giving birth to a new era and we were the midwives. #Quote by New York Public Library
Homosexuality quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#195. Marriage is like a cage one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out ... #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Homosexuality quotes by Troy Perry
#196. I always say that as a Christian I cannot find any passage in the Gospels in which Jesus condemned homosexuality. #Quote by Troy Perry
Homosexuality quotes by Jodi Picoult
#197. Many trees have died so that the Catholic Church can preach against homosexuality. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Homosexuality quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#198. In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Homosexuality quotes by David Platt
#199. On popular issues like poverty and slavery, where Christians are likely to be applauded for our social action, we are quick to stand up and speak out. Yet on controversial issues like homosexuality and abortion, where Christians are likely to be criticized for our involvement, we are content to sit down and stay quiet. #Quote by David Platt
Homosexuality quotes by Mark A. Roeder
#200. The whole world goes on and on about love. Poets spend their lives writing about it. Everyone thinks it's the most wonderful thing. But, when you mention two guys in love, they forget all that and freak out. #Quote by Mark A. Roeder
