"I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. Because somebody doesn't think the way I do, doesn't mean that I can't care about them or can't love them. So if one of my daughters happened to be that, of course I would love them and I would accept them. Because you know what? That's what we're taught when we have strong faith."
"Because somebody doesn't think the way I do..." Homosexuality is not a way of thinking. It's NOT: I think I want to be...therefore I am. Its cause is unknown but is likely biologic. Biological theories of causation suggest a complex interaction of genetic, endocrinological and social factors. To assert that a homosexual person thinks themselves into a "state" of homosexuality is absurd leading to inappropriate therapies such as behavior modification and intolerance based on the debunked belief that sexual orientation is a personal choice. Does Kasich think himself into heterosexuality? Does he actively choose to be heterosexual rather than homosexual?
"That's what we're taught when we have strong faith." Why then are the most virulent homophobes overwhelmingly bible thumpers.
