According to Republican Ernest Huber, running for Washington's 8th Congressional District... Homosexuality It’s an addiction, not a right. I have never known a homosexual who didn’t have a personality disorder. Homosexual acts were felonies forty years ago, and they should be a felonies today. Homosexuality is a sexual addiction that degrades civilizations like any other addiction: That's just common sense. Legislatively enshrining any addiction is utter madness. Humanity has a God-given right of self-defense. That right has been defamed as a hate crime by addicts, those seeking social destabilization, and RINOs. The hypocrisy and irony is that homosexuals are in virulent denial of their addiction and are committing hate crimes and acts of violence against Christians because of their self-hatred. Homosexuals are naturally excluded from Christianity by their acts; this inclines them to atheism, which inclines them to communism. Click on his name in red above to visit his page! Now, I will admit that I at first found a number of things he said pretty agreeable, but he started to go downhill the further I read, and he finally took a dive when I read that last bit. I guess I would just like to know one thing: how exactly being attracted to your own gender constitutes an addiction? This strikes me as being another one of those conservative Christian quips (bon mot? not sure if that's really applicable here... especially the "bon" part!) that arbitrarily assigns a negative label to homosexuality on vague or baseless grounds. attraction to opposite sex = good and proper attraction to same sex = addiction ???Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! How does that work, exactly? What grounds are there for saying being attracted to one person is wholesome, but another is given the presumably self-destructive attribute of being an addiction? I really can't see any logic or reasoning behind it, other than that it comes from a religious conservative who is automatically conditioned to call something wrong simply because. For me, it would only make sense if one broke it down and examined individual relationships, be they heterosexual or homosexual, and judged on their own merits, rather than lumping all of them together and condemning the entire lot. I'm sure plenty of relationships could be considered an addiction, regardless of orientation, or even if they're romantic, sexual, or just plain old friendships period. I wasn't really trying to start another "homosexuality is..." type thread, cuz there's enough of them around here (although the controversy is always a hoot)! But this is one of the few times I've ever heard homosexuality outright condemned as being wrong because it's an addiction! Does anyone actually hold this view? I've heard it is immoral, unnatural, against God, a mental disorder, unproductive (procreatively), outright nasty, etc. I have rarely heard it described as addiction, and Mr. Huber makes it clear that he feels it is such, judging by the number of times he uses the word as a descriptor for homosexuality. Anyone have any thoughts on why this man would use that word as his major definition of homosexuality? Does anyone agree with his view that it is an addiction, a crutch, a dependancy? If so, why? Why is heterosexuality NOT an addiction as well? How long before the Freiherr puts in his two pennies?
