Wow, what a thread. Three things that always stir up hornets nets: Religion, politics, and sexuality.
- Many of the major world religions believe homosexuality isn't a healthy lifestyle. They also believe that promiscuity, pedophilia, bestility are all unhealthy/unclean/unholy too, and every different person's moral compass will give you a different answer. Doesn't make them hateful. Christians are not anti-gay - that is a lie based on anti-Christian misportrayals. Differing opinions do not make people against or hateful of each other. We all also have a freedom of choice to select any religious belief and/or sexual preference we so desire. Look around the league and I'll bet you'll find people of every major faith and belief system... and wanting to dump a player because you disagree with his faith is just plain bigoted.
- Science is the observation of facts. Just facts. Humans make statements on what they see in those facts based on their personal worldiew. Their personal faith. A scientist can make predictions, and make an educated guess based on knowledge, but science itself makes ZERO claims on origins. Show me a thousand scientists and I'll show you several hundred different conclusions from the same scientific evidence presented to them. People believe in three major theories on origins that all are mutually exclusive to each other: Naturalistic Darwinism (Deny that there is a God because one has never been observed and macro-evolution explains all life on earth), Theistic Darwinism (believe that macro-evolution happened and it was guided by a Supernatural God), and Supernatural Creationism (say that macro-evolution has never been observed, therefore did not happen and a Supernatural God created the Universe). And guess what? ALL SEE THE SAME EXACT FACTS. They decipher the facts differently based on their belief systems. They see it through a different lens. There is zero empirical evidence that absolutely nothing created absolutely everything. There is zero empirical evidence that a supernatural creator created absolutely eveything from absolutely nothing. Each person chooses which they believe on FAITH. I've never understood why each side says they are superior to the other. None have proven anything... science is science and origins is completely unproven. Myself, I am a believer in a Supernatural Creator God, but I look at both facts and logic to come to that conclusion. Each person has the freedom to examine the facts and come to their own conclusions as well.
