Re: Homosexuality
Then why does prop 8 keep failing even in the most liberal shithole there is?


That's just one state. In the meantime the number of states
that are legalizing gay marriage are growing. Why would anyone
want to deny them the misery of marriage that we already enjoy?




 Quoting: DrPostman

Its only legal in 3 states ATM, and one of them is MASS which doesnt count because they are completely fucked up and let pedophiles go free, or give very light sentances.

Re: Homosexuality
Let's deal with the issue. I think it's wrong and gross and an abomination unto the human race and especially a sin against God! What do you think?

It's a sin, like any sin, in the eyes of God they are equal and pull us from His presence.

I would not call it an "abomination", that is pretty extreme don't you think?

Do you think a young boy stealing a piece of candy from a 711 is abhorrent?

Do you think idle idol worship is loathsome?

Do you think speeding is disgusting?

First of speeding isnt a sin. 2nd the poster didnt call it an abomination, he said the bible calls it an abomination, which it does. 3rd not all sins are considered the same in the eyes of god if you go by the bible. all sins are bad, but some are just sins, some are mortal sins.
 Quoting: mfgl

Uh, speeding is a sin.

2nd, the poster made no reference to the bible in the quote you just used, did you read it?

3rd the concept of a "mortal" sin is a "religious" ideal and is not in the Bible.

Come back when you have prayed a bit more, read and bit more and are not out to defend a "zealot".

There is not hard evidence to suggest that homosexuals are born that way. Many homosexuals agree with this. Therefore it is not hate, I don't hate them, and will be the first to stand up for them being truly oppressed. GLADD calls it a "sexual orientation" which does not suggest that it is genetic but rather a trend in their development.

Finally, the plight of the Slavs, the Hebrews/Jews, or the Africans/Blacks is in no way similar to what homosexual have, are or will go through.

You speak of ignorance and popular belief, did you forget that homosexuality had it's day or days in the past. It was respected or approved in early Greece, in Rome, in Germany/Prussia, in Japan.

The afformentioned groups of people, until very recently, were not respected or approved.

So in conclusion, until you can stop being so obviously myopic and stop speaking obvious propaganda perhaps you stop accusing people of being ignorant and intolerant. If you can't see people like me, which there are tons, don't hate homosexuals and wise rise to protect them, then, frankly, you can go fuck yourself, no lube would be preferred.

Re: Homosexuality
God loves homosexuals.
Homosexuals have been lied to and made to believe that their lifestyle is normal and healthy and intractable. These are lies of liars perpetrated against troubled people who need help, not lies.

Homosexuality is a sin.
Pride is a sin. Greed is a sin. Lieing is a sin. Adultry is a sin (sex before marriage is adultry also). Contentiousness is a sin.....
The good news is that God loves sinners. Now if they do not accept His son they will send themselves to hell; a Hell that was made for rebellious angels, not man.

Oh, and by the way. The American Psychological Association have recently, quietly put HOMOSEXUALITY back into the DSM (IV) as a deviant sexual diagnosis. You know, the APA, the arrogant pseudo-science libnuts that created this whole culture of homosexuals in the western world.

Re: Homosexuality
Its a natural variance. Stop being so judgemental! There was a News item (see side bar) only a few days ago that said;

2009-06-05

The brains of gay men resemble those of straight women, according to research being published Tuesday that provides more evidence of the role of biology in sexual orientation.

Using brain scanning equipment, researchers said they discovered similarities in the brain circuits that deal with language, perhaps explaining why homosexual men tend to outperform straight men on verbal skills tests -- as do heterosexual women.

The area of the brain that processes emotions also looked very much the same in gay men and straight women -- and both groups have higher rates of depressive disorders than heterosexual men, researchers said.

The study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, however, found the brain similarities were not as close in the case of gay women and straight men.

Previous studies have found evidence that sexual orientation is hard-wired. More than a decade ago, neurobiologist Simon LeVay reported that a key area of the hypothalamus, a brain structure linked to sexual behavior, was smaller in homosexual men compared to heterosexual men.

The latest study, led by Ivanka Savic of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, was significant in that it looked at areas of the brain that have nothing to do with sexual behavior, suggesting there was a basic biological link between sexual orientation and a range of brain functions.

"The question is -- how far does it go?" said Dr. Eric Vilain, who studies human sexual development at UCLA and was not involved in the study. "In gay men, the brain is feminized. Is that limited to particular areas or is the entire brain female-like?"

Vilain said his hunch was the entire brain was not feminized because "gay men have a number of masculine traits that are not present in women."

Savic and colleagues used magnetic resonance imaging to measure brain volumes of two groups, each divided evenly between men and women: 50 heterosexuals and 40 homosexuals. They knew going into the study that in men the right cerebral hemisphere is largest but in women the left and right hemispheres are of equal size.

The results showed that gay men had symmetrical brains like those of straight women, and homosexual women had slightly asymmetrical brains like those of heterosexual men. Language circuits are thought to be more symmetrical in straight women than in heterosexual men, the report said.

The differences were pronounced. For example, the right cerebral hemisphere in heterosexual men was 624 cubic centimeters -- 12 greater than their left side. In homosexual men, the right hemisphere was 608 cubic centimeters -- 1 cubic centimeter smaller than the left.

In heterosexual women, there was no volume difference between right and left hemispheres. But in homosexual women, their right hemisphere was 5 cubic centimeters larger than the left.

Next, researchers used positron emission topography to measure blood flow in the amygdala, a brain area involved in processing emotions. The wiring of the amygdala in gay men more closely resembled that of straight women than straight men, researchers said. The amygdala of gay women looked more like those of straight men, according to the report.

Savic said she believed the brain differences were forged in the womb or infancy, probably as a result of genetic or hormonal factors. She said she could not explain why the differences were more pronounced in homosexual men than in homosexual women.

Marc Breedlove, a neuroscientist who studies sexual development at Michigan State University, said that in his studies with rats, changes in prenatal levels of testosterone caused the sort of brain alterations Savic observed in her study.
