"If a non-Christian person wishes to engage in homosexual behaviour in private I have few problems with that. If they wish to change society so that it accepts and encourages such behaviour as normal then I must resist. This has nothing to do at all with locking up homosexuals, or taking away their property, or throwing them out of their jobs. And it is a straw man to suggest that it does."
believe the main goal of law is to ensure the protection of everyone's rights, to protect society from itself and to put several procedures at hand with which those who break the law are punished, one of the functions for those punishments is: to scare people off from breaking the law. Now to what Father Peter said, I understand his concern for society, but I think freedom of expression is something so fundamental that to put boundaries on it is a very dangerous thing. For example, the freedom of atheists to say the most terrible things about christianity, I as a christian am most definitly bothered by what is being said, but I cannot support a law that would deny them the right to mock my religion.. Because I too have a right to evangelize, to tell people about God and to prove those atheists wrong, and if I want one I have to take the other also... Now my point is this: I have a very grim look on today's society, I see all that is holy and good being lost in a world that loves and encourages sin in all its forms. But I do not think that banning certain things in a legal way is the solution as much as making use of our own rights might be
