Announcing a new Meetup for "With an Open Mind" Discussion Group!

What: Homosexuality ? A Choice? A Curse? A Blessing?

When: December 3,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Throughout recorded history there have been those who have characteristically engaged in what we now identify as homosexual behavior. Until recently, homosexual behavior has typically been viewed as a completely ?voluntary? act and, more often than not, been ?condemned? by the society at large.

Today the situation is less clear. Some evidence suggests that sexual preference may have a genetic component ? that some may be ?predisposed? toward homosexual rather than heterosexual behavior. And irrespective of the scientific evidence, society seems to have become more tolerant of ?alternative life styles?.

On the other hand, recent events indicate an INtolerance of gay marriage. Proposition 8 was approved in California, and similar anti-gay-marriage amendments passed in Florida and Arizona. In Arkansas, Proposed Initiative Act No. 1 was approved by 57% of voters. This act nominally bans people who are ?cohabitating outside a valid marriage?, whether homosexual or heterosexual, from serving as foster parents or adopting children, but it was written by the Arkansas Family Council to specifically thwart ?the gay agenda?.

What?s happening? Are we becoming more ?accepting? of gays in our society? Are we seeing a ?backlash?? Why has the definition of marriage become such a hot button issue?
