So this article seems to be about a church discriminating against this gay person and refusing to let him attend his father's funeral because of his homosexuality.

But the liberal national sources don't quote this guy completely.

er the family's request, Goodman's father will not be named in this story.
"They're punishing my dad for a lifestyle choice I've made. Its not me up there in a casket. It's him," said Goodman.
Goodman's 71-year-old father has very few dying wishes.
He is a fool if he thinks he chose to be gay.

But it doesn't even say he claims that. He speaks of lifestyle choice not the choice of sexual orientation. I don't know him, but maybe he is one of those in-your-face gays that turn their sexual orientation into a spectacle. That is indeed a choice as many homosexuals are rather private and do not want to be the center of attention.

Again, why should any of that matter? The man wanted to honor his deceased father, period. The church could have done the right thing in the name of compassion and empathy. They didn't.

Sure, I was just commenting on the topic as such...

Obama said for him deciding to be straight was a choice because dating women would be more of a challenge. Kids who went to high school with him said they assumed he was gay. It's in his biography. Mainstream media hushed that one up fast.

Maybe he is bisexual.

But really, if you are a gay guy, you can't force yourself to like women.
I am straight and can't force myself to like men, there is a certain disgust that would never go away.

Don't say that within earshot of a Progressive.

Lots of disgust actually. Well, I'd say there are some people out there so extremely lonely that they may jump on the first thing that comes around, especially if they truly believe that it may be the only chance in their life they have. I've seen really ugly fat chicks end up going out with other women and getting romantically involved because they felt it was the only thing they could get.

Maybe by people who would decide to bring it up and by people who do studies or talks on it!
