Homosexuality is a mental illness

Homosexuality is probably the most misunderstood and controversial topic of our days, I personally have nothing against gay people, however I do feel you have the right to hear a different perspective on the issue and make your own decision.

What most people don't know is that homosexuality is actually a mental illness, up until 1974 it was even in the US law, the law was changed because gay people wanted to be treated as normal but there was no psychiatric research done prior to the law change to prove that homosexuality is no longer an illness but the law was changed regardless.

There are those people who do not suffer from mental illness but simply like the act of homosexuality, As a believer in biblical scripture this is called a sin and God is quite clear about his dislike of this abominable act; Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13

There are many types of mental illnesses out there that are quite obvious in the outwardly, such as schizophrenia or insanity, and there are mental conditions that are almost impossible to detect such as narcissistic personality disorder, there are many levels with gay people as well, with some it is more obvious(the way they talk, dress, walk etc..) and for some it is completely invisible and even unthinkable( parent with the closet secret for example).
Unfortunately because of the public's ignorance gay people got bad stigmas and suffer from name calling and even worse, if more people would be educated about the homosexual condition they would think twice before name calling or hurting a gay person, would you hurt some one in a wheel chair?

In the last 50 years there has been a rise in homosexuality just as there has been a drastic rise in obesity, cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and of course mental diseases, the one thing in common to all of these is bad nutrition which sadly is encouraged and being extremely accessible(fast/dead food, sugary drinks with 0 nutritional value etc..), bad nutrition leads to organ disease and failure and the brain is no different than any other organ in the body but that is a whole different topic by itself.

Imagine psychopaths would come together one day and change the law of their mental illness and demand to be treated as normal. This is pretty much the exact same thing that happened in 1974.
Those who defend gay rights are actually defending the right of mentally disabled people not to get help and instead be treated as "normal" which leads to a lot of misunderstanding, confusion and hate towards gay people and those who oppose them alike.
What those who defend gay rights should actually be doing is educating others about this condition and offering help to those who suffer from it by fund raising for treatments and awareness in both the gay and straight community.

I see people change their gender because society convinced them it's OK and it's not their fault and there is nothing that can be done for them otherwise, that is completely untrue, these people need a healthy nutrition plan and psychiatric treatment.

What truly is worrisome is that not only society accepts mental illness as normal but our authorities actually encourage it by creating laws to support it(gay marriage for example)

We live in times when the abnormal has become normal and vice versa

Regardless of any persons orientation or disability we should always be respectful to each other, otherwise it is a complete waste of time for both sides.
