Certain groups have popular, even powerful lobbies and it is up to us to let everyone know that their views are in the minority.
As well we need to recall the heterosexuality is the norm and is natural, since it may result in reproducing the next generation.

We live in a highly advanced society in which we no longer need religion as we did in the past when people were scared into joining the Church by horror stories of Hell. Religion is nothing more than a nice story, and Christianity is merely born from Paganism e.g. the Devil’s pitchfork originated from Poesidon’s trident.
It’s time to move on from old-fashioned religious beliefs that have no place in our world today.

Your belief is not evidence.

But don’t necessarily go straight.

Our moral obligations are to each other, animals, and the planet.

Studies show that gay men are de facto less likely to abuse and that abuse is often linked to heterosexual power games, as well as sex obsession.

All child abuse is an evil we must try to prevent.

The world is better off for reality checks.

In Italian, this word does not mean the English “gender,” it is a word that is used for the sexually different: homosexuals, lesbians, transgender people.

Thus, the reporting may be sensationalistic, but it is not inaccurate.
