Depends on the potential parents. And that's where Science would have a problem IF it wants to continue the Born Gay DNA Argument and Research.

The "Born Gay" theory/hypothesis was put forth by a Homosexual Scientist. Not exactly unbiased. And certainly not hard Science or Scientific Fact, at present.

If Science did isolate the "homosexual gene", potential parents wouldn't necessarily have to pass on reproducing or opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.

They could just terminate the pregnancy through abortion.

PS Ever see the movie "Gattaca" ?( 1997 ~ With Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, Uma Thurman ).

The homosexual community faces a problem here. If science could isolate the "homosexual gene", would potential parents pass on reproducing if faced with a homosexual child? Or would they opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.
Just wondering if science might end homosexuality, unless it is a lifestyle choice and not genetic?

But marriage does have legal bearing in things such as tax law.
The entire problem could be solved by eliminating the use of the word "marriage" & substitute "civil union" in all references to licenses & legal matters.
People would have a "civil union" aspect & a "marriage" aspect (if they so desire) to their weddings.
The 'problem' could be solved by getting government completely out of the marriage business. Because it is none of their business. Just like how much I make or my wealth. It's none of their business. FairTax.org

The DNA Argument of "Born Gay" would be better served if The DNA of Identical Twins was studied where one is Heterosexual and one is Homosexual.
Only came to my attention through personal experience.
Identical Twins, one is Homosexual, one is Heterosexual.
Despite exact same DNA. So ... Just an off topic observation.:)
<quoted text>
Good morning.

Interesting indeed. I just read where there have been identical twin studies where one twin had the genetic condition progeria and the other didn't. Yet, no one is questioning the link between genetics and progeria.

Sorry, page couldn't be found.

However, did you know this is the fourth year in a row this president hasn't submitted a budget before the deadline of February 1?

He said it would be ready sometime in April.

If he wasn't squawking so loud and blaming Republicans for not passing a budget of spending cuts that doesn't exist, his procrastination might be more forgiveable.

NBC - The widespread lingering caution from consumers and employers alike more than three years after the Great Recession officially ended is now one of the biggest hurdles to a more robust recovery.

Maybe one day someone will find a way to shrink the technology even further.
Those micro UAV's aren't what's being discussed by the likes of Curly Paul__he's talking about hunter killer drones with advanced guidance weapons systems such as the Reaper. Those weapons won't be made available to law enforcement agencies.
Oh yes they will. Given time.

I love Liberals/Democrats how they attempt to erase their Racist Past!!
Here’s a Short Quiz: whose party attacked civil right marches with Fire Hoses and K 9 Dogs, the party that blocked access to Blacks Students from entering an Alabama University, the party that Wire Tape Martin Luther King’s office?
Blacks may have switched parties, bought and paid for by LBJ, but the democrats kept and still have all their racist management.

How does the GOP somehow inherit the demokratic icons FDR or Kennedy's extremist racist history?

The GOP doesn't have blatant organized anti-black racism on public record or the national archives.

And who could argue against your point.

Except, John Holden, Obama's Science Czar is a strong proponent and advocate of Eugenics.

And Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is a modern day Dr. Mengele where Eugenics are concerned. Obama Adviser on ObamaCare, Death Panels,
End-Of-Life etc. et al.

He was also Chair of The German Advocates of Eugenics.

Dr Ezekiel Emanuel: "Death to Those With Dementia, as Useless Eaters".

So, although The World does not need anymore etc. et al. Hitler freaks, America has several seated in places of power, authority and decision-making-policy with regard to Health Care(?).

When the economy is still in the crapper in 2016 and unemployment is still high, maybe the fools will start blaming Obama instead of Bush.

But maybe not, maybe they like living in poverty, dependent on the government.
