Heterosexuality is not normal, it's just common.

John Green

Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in
Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I'm changing it to 'God Hates Baguettes.' It's tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.

Edward Carpenter

Anyhow, with their extraordinary gift for, and experience in, affairs of the heart from the double point of view, both of the man and of the woman it is not difficult to see that these people have a special work to do as reconcilers and interpreters of the two sexes to each other.

Simone De Beauvoir

In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.

By Hays' reasoning, penetrating a rectum with a penis is a violation of how God meant humans to function. However, penetrating a human body with a sword, a common way to kill people in biblical times, is acceptable. Apparently human bodies were designed to be penetrated by metal implements, but not by flesh.

Wesley Hill

Washed and waiting. That is my life – my identity as one who is forgiven and spiritually cleansed and my struggle as one who perseveres with a frustrating thorn in the flesh, looking forward to what God has promised to do. That is what this book is all about.

Glenway Wescott

Let us be timid even among fools.
Let us knot silence around our throats.
For they would surely kill us.

Robert Clark

When asked why I don't believe in God I reply, quite simply, "vaginas".

Michael Arditti

For myself I couldn't care less, but I have a lover. Not a partner, Susannah, or a friend or a significant euphemism, but the love of my life. And he believes. And I've watched him tie himself in knots, as he struggles to find a place for himself in texts that were written thousands of years ago, with the deliberate aim of excluding him.

Danny Aspinall

Some people are just quitters, man they just give up, and the rest of us are dreamers without any luck.

Christopher Hitchens

Neal Stephenson

Trevor D. Richardson

How can we pick and choose which parts of the Bible to follow? One thing is God’s will and another is just cultural differences? What if it’s all cultural? What if homosexuality or saving yourself for marriage is as outdated as women staying silent in church or Leviticus forbidding tattoos?

Robert Clark

I have always been homosexual and it surprises me that more people are not; women's pink bits are moist and forbidding and I enjoy those qualities much more in a Victoria sponge.

Christopher Hitchens

I think that people's sexual preferences are a legitimate subject for humour, dirty humour if at all possible.

Homosexuality, to the limited extent it was discussed in our church, was little more than a political football, a quick test of orthodoxy.

Justin Lee

Unfortunately, some churches are now so worried about being arrogant and unbending like certain other Christians that they fail to stand for anything at all. They hang question marks over all the major doctrines of the faith or throw them out entirely. Bit by bit, they lose the things that set them apart as Christians.

Justin Lee

If anyone had a right to lecture people about their sin, it was the sinless son of God. If even he could meet sinners as equals, how much more should we Christians-all sinners ourselves-treat as equals the people we encounter in our lives?

Ricky Maye

Jesus didn't fight against what was wrong. But he fought for what was right.

Dan Pearce

The more you put your arm around those that you might naturally look down on, the more you will love yourself. And the more you love yourself, the less need you’ll ever have to find fault or be better than others. And the less we all find fault or have a need to be better than others, the quicker this world becomes a far better place to live.

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield

Good teachers make it possible for people to change their positions without shame. Even as Ken prayed for my soul, he did it in a way that welcomed me into the church rather than made me a scapegoat of Christian fear or an example of what not to become," (p 14).

Men who refuse to use condoms do not deserve to be fucked by anyone but other men who refuse to use condoms.

Judith Butler

If Lacan presumes that female homosexuality issues from a disappointed heterosexuality, as observation is said to show, could it not be equally clear to the observer that heterosexuality issues from a disappointed homosexuality?

Edward Carpenter

It would seem probable that the attachment of such a one is of a tender and profound character; indeed, it is possible that in this class of men we have the love sentiment in one of its most perfect forms - a form in which from the necessities of the situation the sensuous element, though present, is exquisitely subordinated to the spiritual.

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Compared with lesbians, gays seem to be more unapologetic about their sexual orientation. The former must not have balls.

G.K. Chesterton

The moment sex ceases to be a servant it becomes a tyrant.

Andrea Dworkin

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.' (Leviticus 18:22). That means simply that it is foul to do to other men what men habitually, proudly, manfully do to women: use them as inanimate, empty, concave things; fuck them into submission; subordinate them through sex.

E.M. Forster

Why children?' he asked. 'Why always children? For love to end where it begins is far more beautiful, and Nature knows it.

Richard Von Krafft-Ebing

Nature has made a mistake in the choice of my sexuality and I must do a life-long penance for it, for the moral power to suffer the unavoidable with dignity is lost.

CA Conrad

I'm not the kind of faggot who wants to put a rainbow sticker on a machine gun.

Alfred Bruce Douglas

Hendrik Hertzberg

Marriage should be between a spouse and a spouse, not a gender and a gender.

Paddy Chayefsky

I'm a flaming faggot, Irving. I was sure you were on to that. I don't go around waving the flag, of course, and I definitely do not proselytize. Homosexuality is, to me, an inner satisfaction, a pride in a heritage of greatness. To marry a woman would be an inadmissible rejection of my identity.

Richard Von Krafft-Ebing

How deep congenital sex-inversion roots may be gathered from the fact that the pleasure-dream of the male Urning has to do with male persons, and of the female with females.

What a horrible feeling that is, to know that if the disease [AIDS] had primarily affected PTA presidents, or priests, or white teenage girls, the epidemic would have been ended years earlier, and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved.
