It doesn't demand that at all. I demand that people don't push on me the idea that homosexuality is 'normal' behavior. Being that you are a man that seems to generally favor traditions I would think you would have some similar understanding the situation of traditional marriage for most people, but that is another matter.No, actually most of "our" Nations have a very different traditional view on this subject as you "normal?" xtians, do.
So first you say don't force the idea that homosexuality is normal behavior, on you, then you say that you don't know that anyone is doing such, now you are "demand"ing that the idea isn't pushed on you again.
Based on your own posts, I think it would be safe to say that you don't really know what you think of the matter. I would venture to further suggest that in all probability, based on obvious history of Xtian behavior in these types of situations, that you simply heard/saw some Xtians bullying some gays in the name of christianity, and thought that was a pretty shiny bandwagon and decided to jump aboard.
Please tell me how 'our' nations view tradition differently (and not simply your isolation on marriage since my distinction of traditions from traditional marriage was rather clear in showing that to some people there is a tradition of marriage and you have emphasized the value of traditions in other posts).
You have no idea of what you speak and you obviously have no idea of what I posted as your own post is evident with it showing contrasting opinions of the exact same post of mine. Let me explain it to you since you have such difficulty in your reading comprehension. I said don't force upon me the notion that homosexuality is natural and normal. When you put forth a question that had nothing to do at all with what I posted. You asked "How exactly, would allowing same sex marriage between two consenting adults be pushing it on you?" and I answered "I am not sure that it would, but I don't understand the relevance of your question to my post". Considering I was speaking of trying to claim homosexuality as natural or normal it only logically follows that you were asking how allowing same sex marriage would be forcing the idea that homosexuality is natural or normal, and my answer would be that I am not sure that it would be forcing that definition of natural or normal on me. The problem here is that you have failed to comprehend what I posted from the start and you have continued with your questions to me based on your biased and prejudicial judgements of what you wanted me to post (so that you could feel your bias and prejudice). It is all here for everyone to see, and it is a simple thing to go back and reread it (but this time make sure you read what I posted and not what you wanted me to post).
Like so many others here, you entirely misjudge me and do so in an extremely prejudicial manner. Would it interest you to know that my great grandmother was full blooded Cherokee? Would it interest you to know that I attended native American schools as a child (question, would this be different from a tribal school as I was very young then and don't remember much)? Would it interest you to know that I have had many friends who were gay and have stayed the nights over their houses and them at mine? Would it interest you to know that I got into some trouble with one of my gay friends and we were arrested and the police were calling me all sorts of names and making all sorts of accusations against me because of my friend being gay? I suppose these things are of no interest to you and you never considered them while you were too busy being a dukshanee.
No, you mis-understand my question. Again, how would allowing same sex unions force upon you anyones idea that such is normal? You are free to have any ideas you wish, I just think it is being dis-honest of you to make the claim that if others are allowed to enter into union of any kind, much less a same sex union, that it would force upon you someone else's ideas.
Now, if they were to get on their soap box at each and every oppertunity, declaring that their chosen life style was the only
normal and there for acceptable one, then perhaps, that would be an attempt at assimilating you into their lifestyle.
As for your stated claims in regards to your Grandmother? Why would that be of special interest to me? Doesn't everyone have a full blood Cherokee GrandMother?
"Our Nations" are the indigenous nations of this continent, "yours" is not.
Many of our Peoples believed that those whom you call gay had a special and much deeper connection to the spirit world, and were/are held in great esteem and admiration. I could continue with this line of conversation but will decline on the basis of the need to know is completely lacking in this instance.
