I have not commented on morals whether adultery is right or wrong but now that you've raised the point - well, infidelity is an act of betrayal. It should not be done. Trust in a relationship is very important.
How convenient.

No, it is not provided the innate instinct where sexual orientation is concerned is normal which should reflect man-woman attraction and not the deviant homosexual attraction.
Yes, being over 6 feet tall is a deviation from the normal. Most people are shorter than that. Why does "normal" only matter when it comes to your particular bigotry? What about left handed people? Being left handed isn't normal. Christians used to kill them.

LOL.
Straight people may turn explorative - rear entry, oral, kama sutra positions, etc, but the act will always be between man and woman.
Sex acts between men and women will always be between men and women?
Well, that's a shock.

This teaching is specific and more a warning about what to expect in the sense that it says what a believer in Jesus would have to face in those days when the faith was in its germination stage.

I associate Christianity more with self-denigration (the sinner complex, or the feeling that humans are worthless and polluted and need saving by turning to Christ).

Does being over 6 feet tall impair one's critical faculties of cognition and does it affect one's sexual orientation?

I don't think so.

A straight man will always be sexually attracted to a woman and not to a male.

This is the normal sexual instinct.

The deviant instinct is when a man is sexually turned on by other men or by animals or by 7 year old kids.

There are quite a few people who're ambidextrous without this trait damaging their intelligence or warping their sexual orientation.

The intelligent question to ask is whether left-handedness impairs one's cognitive faculties or if it affects one's sexual orientation. Obviously, there's no connection.

I said that fidelity in a relationship is very important because if trust is eroded due to infidelity then the relationship crumbles and brings with it much acrimony and often results in lasting psychological and emotional distress.

If you wish to safeguard your psychological, emotional, physical and material well being and that of others with who you are connected to then please place a high premium on fidelity and trust in everything that you do whether in business, with friends, with nation or with spouse.

This is the normal behavioral instinct where relationships are concerned.

No, persecution complex is more a Jewish thing.
With Christians, it has everything to do with the sinner concept - the self-denigration idea which to me is so degrading.

Ever hear about the "War on Christmas", for example?

LMAO

I was not referring to the US political context or to the War on Xmas.

I simply said that most Jews everywhere, especially the European Jews, have this magnified persecution complex/victimhood (which they play up to gain advantages or to draw sympathy).

Ex-Jew/Jew-baiter, Noam Chomsky, has said that Israel has a huge persecution complex.

Actually, most social scientists agree that gender is a social construction, and that the boundaries are more fluid that one might think...

Hughbe is a living example of this. I really doubt he even knows what he is.

There exist certain areas of overlap common to males and females in behavior but at the same time males usually have an unmistakeable stamp of masculinity while femininity is a female trait.

Both Hugh and you being passive homosexuals are more effeminate than masculine.

I still laugh when I remember that post in which Voluntarist said that he was surprised to learn that you were male since initially he thought he was interacting with a female.

Voluntarist was the one who called you a Nancy Boy.

Anyway, be happy and maintain regular oral/anal hygiene and limit your male lovers to 1 a week even if you happen to have a steady guy.

totally wrong

Masculinity/femininity is a total social construction. Didnt they make you take any Anthropology in that hovel of a school of yours?

So you are introducing Voluntarist as a litmus of intelligent thought? That made me chuckle.

"I suppose I’m just tired of all the hoo-hah over something this ridiculous. I honestly couldn’t care less if somebody is gay, or ‘straight’ for that matter, just as I couldn’t care less about somebody’s anti-LGBT views. People seem to want you to be uptight one way or another about it, and I am content to simply respect somebody’s differences without a lot of fuss as long as there’s no harm done.”

You take him far too seriously. Chomsky speaks against EVERYONE.

".......Chomsky's political views have changed little since his childhood.[144] His ideological position revolves around "nourishing the libertarian and creative character of the human being",[144] and he has described his beliefs as "fairly traditional anarchist ones, with origins in the Enlightenment and classical liberalism."[145] He has praised libertarian socialism,[146] and has described himself as an anarcho-syndicalist.[147....

It's interesting how often the "morals are objective" types (don't know if you are or not) suddenly start saying we need to judge the founding fathers in the context of their times.
Bzzzt...wrong.
Murder, rape, kidnapping, and forced labor are all wrong, regardless of the times.
So were these good men who were flawed?

Or were they bad men, period?

Guess I forgot to respond to that part.

Don't even know what it means. Objective morality almost sounds like an oxymoron.

If anything is subjective, I would think the discussion of good/bad right/wrong good vs evil would be.

Ethics are little more straight forward, esp in the context of a profession. Real Estate, Legal practice, medicine etc. But still a lot of judgment calls there. IMHO.
