Personally, I think believing that mythology is real is a form of mental retardation.

Since when is putting a curse on someone considered part of Christianity? Perhaps you need to be burned at the stake.
Have you ever smelled human flesh burning? I have, horrible/sickening. All i need now is an eye of newt and some frog hair from a three toe frog and the curse will be cast.

And you think I would care, why? Rebuke away moron. You're rebuking is totally irrelevant to anyone but you. No one cares child.
<quoted text>
A curse? Really? Will you be using voodoo dolls or going with a cauldron and some eye of newt?
As will all fundies, I must say your obsession with thinking about other people's erections and private parts is rather creepy. You do know that normal people don't think about other people's erections or their sex, right?
<quoted text>
Um, again dear, the fact that you are thinking about and talking about someone else's sex is rather disturbing.

If you say so moron.

Wow, you are the one who is clearly angry with a limp wristed foot stomping hissy fit!
To start with, a piece of paper cannot establish real kinship. A SS couple will NEVER have real kinship. You not only didn't get off the ground, you nose dived!
The rest of your claims are simply manipulated claims made by denying reality. Here is where it goes. If SS couples qualify for those rights and protections, then ANY number of people in a relationship deserve the same.
Moreover, I don't object to homosexuality, it is a sexual birth defect. I do object to a defect being equated to marriage. And children bring deprived of either the father or mother roles in family.
Now, just a simple lesson to educate you:
When you add m + f it equals marriage.
When you add m + m, all you have is two m's.
Never equal to m + f, and never resulting in c.

Yawn. Your lies and repetitious opinion pieces bore me. Got nothing new gramps?

Wow, you must be a fundamentalist Christian!! You people have no idea how to have a real conversation.

Here's how it works dope. If you make a claim, the onus is on you to prove the claim, not on other to disprove it. You want to say that something is a form of mental redardation? Well then, the onus is on you to be able to support that statement. Good luck with that. You'll have as much success proving this statement as you will in proving your mythical god!!!

No wonder you people are so low on the food chain.

Evolutionists have nailed down how an enormous number of previously unexplained phenomena—in anatomy, physiology, embryology, behavior—have evolved. There are still mysteries, however, and one of the most prominent is the origins of homosexuality.

The mystery is simple enough. Its solution, however, has thus far eluded our best scientific minds.

First the mystery.

The sine qua non for any trait to have evolved is for it to correlate positively with reproductive success, or, more precisely, with success in projecting genes relevant to that trait into the future. So, if homosexuality is in any sense a product of evolution—and it clearly is, for reasons to be explained—then genetic factors associated with same-sex preference must enjoy some sort of reproductive advantage. The problem should be obvious: If homosexuals reproduce less than heterosexuals—and they do—then why has natural selection not operated against it?

The paradox of homosexuality is especially pronounced for individuals whose homosexual preference is exclusive; that is, who have no inclination toward heterosexuality. But the mystery persists even for those who are bisexual, since it is mathematically provable that even a tiny difference in reproductive outcome can drive substantial evolutionary change.

Smile.

Your error is assuming genetics operates at an individual and not a population level. You really shouldn't be commenting about this with such a poor grasp of the subject matter. You only succeed in making yourself look like a fool.

You lie.

Every time I have seen it, I have responded. In fact, the article I posted even notes your suggestion AND GIVES REASON FOR WHY IT HAS PROBLEMS.

But hey, you are clearly in denial. Here is another smack on the head:

http://popsych.org/5-weak-ideas-about-the-ori...

"Selection Pressures: Sexually Antagonistic Selection
This brings us to the final selection pressure. Here, the idea is that a gene is detrimental when it’s inherited by one sex, but beneficial in the other. This is another theoretically plausible suggestions with some consistent evidence behind it (but the account isn’t anywhere near complete, and only considers male homosexuality). Unfortunately for this suggestion, like the above hypothesis, it also suffers from the concordance rate data. It would also require that females consistently more than make up for the detriment to the male offspring, reproductively. Remember, this isn’t just a matter of slight disadvantages; this is a matter of effective sterility. Further, such sexually antagonistic issues tend to be weeded out over time, as any new modifications that can avoid the costs associated with expression in males will be selected for. Even if this was a viable account, then, it would still be far from a complete one, as it would not be able to explain why some of the twin pairs turn out concordant, but most don’t, why these reproductive costs have yet to be eliminated, and it’s missing an account of female homosexuality."

SMile.
