Adam and Steve?
Everyone has prejudices, everyone has personal opinions, this includes Police Officers, of that there is no question, so you start by saying that as a Special Constable, your personal opinions do not effect your duties.
Sir James Anderton, former Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, had a very outspoken view on AIDS:
'Everywhere I go I see increasing evidence of people swirling about in a human cesspit of their own making.'
You agree with his view on this, and believe it can be applied to all sexually transmitted diseases, but with certain conditions attached.
'Human cesspit' you believe should be taken to mean illness, a lack of health, leading to squalour and disfunction, with a hint of self pity. There are many symptoms of STDs, all very unpleasant, therefore making it as the dictionary defines, sewage, refuse and waste, in other words a 'cesspit'.
When a person, be they male or female, contracts a STD, through circumstances that are not beyond their control, you believe it is their own fault and they deserve what they get. If they die from this so be it, while that will be a tradgedy and a sad time for the family, it is like a smoker dyeing of lung cancer, therefore it is clearly 'of their own making'.
They were informed of the consequences, they did not listen, they chose not to change their ways, therefore they died.
The Bible States:
'Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders.' 1 Corinthians 6:9
The Quaran States:
'What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males, and leave the wives your Lord created for you? Nay, but ye are froward folk.' Quran , 26th sura, trans. Pickthal.
You won't start by hiding behind the words that many people use: 'I have friends who are gay.' because you don't have any friends, gay or otherwise. Whilst you may not completely agree with what homosexuals do with each other, you have no problem with them personally, you do not hold any malice or ill will towards them in the slightest, they have the right to do what they wish, that right is one you will never question.
'AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.' Jerry Fallwell
You don't agree with that quote, if Jerry Fallwell replaced the word 'homosexuals' with 'fornicators', then yes, you would completely agree.
However you do say this, if Homosexuality were the normal way, wouldn't God have made Adam and Steve?
