Not sure I saw where Freud came into this. Anyway, people have to draw lines in their mind. I agree that we must love everyone and we should be careful when it comes to judging others - as a Christian, I should not disagree with that - but accepting people and accepting practices are different. Who's gonna suggest that every possible human action should be considered OK? Throughout this thread, people are showing their condemnation of certain acts - pedophilia, bestiality, etc. Are they being oppressive to others by deeming these things "wrong"? I don't think so. You have drawn the lines in your mind and homosexuality is on the side of "OK".

Understand that for other people that line is not so easily drawn.
