- NORMAL: Usual, Ordinary, Regular
- ANTONYM TO NORMAL: Strange, Unusual, Abnormal
Mr Coward and his African partner are due to hold a civil partnership later this year, followed by a service at the vicar’s church, St John the Baptist church in Devizes, Wiltshire.
Is the marriage between a 65 year old and a 25 year old, NORMAL? Then it therefore must be ABNORMAL? Is a Gay relationship, USUAL? It therefore must be STRANGE? Is a 'Christian' marriage between men, allowed? You can obviously see where I am going with this.
I, like many HETEROSEXUAL MEN am uneasy about HOMOSEXUALITY. I admit it, so calling me a HOMOPHOBE is pointless. I understand that some men and women are inclined that way and although I can APPRECIATE that, I don't have to UNDERSTAND IT! Too often, we as a society, skate around this issue and others, which we might explore further in the coming weeks. If we accept that HOMOSEXUALITY is not NORMAL, then it must be ABNORMAL.I honestly don't mean to cause offence if you are homosexual, either male or female, I just think it's better if we explore these issues more openly and then maybe HETEROSEXUAL people will understand better where you are coming from and you can understand our objections. I mean I have three men, I would call really good friends that I would do anything for, well almost, if you take my meaning.
Going back to the happy couple pictured, their relationship would be abnormal even if either was of the opposite sex. The fact that they are of different colours and Gay, makes it even more unusual. I hope they have a happy life together, because although I don't understand it, I don't wish them ill. Maybe it's me that's ABNORMAL, but I don't think so. I would appreciate your comments if you are Gay or Lesbian, make a name up if you don't want to post under your usual moniker.
