You are correct. "Homosexuality" is not progress, it is a sexual orientation.<quoted text>
No.. no pot.. been dry around these parts... The comment was about Progress... Homosexuality is far from Progress.... As I said History 1000's of years ago made it the Norm in several societies that then collapsed... Calling something Progress that happened several times in the past is Not very Progressive....
I type using my style... Since it is Impossible to denote tone and emphasis in the printed word I Capitalize those words I would tend to Emphasize during a verbal conversation....
Progress is expansion of rights and reduction of suffering, both of which I am a great fan of.
We've come to a point in this society where ideas about sexuality have changed but we still have this very conservative group that still resists the change. We already know that homosexuality itself is as natural as anything else and occurs with low frequency without any necessary harm. So now the question shifts. What is it about the acceptance of homosexuality as a normal human condition that you believe is dangerous?
There has never been a society that was destroyed because of homosexuality. Societies come and go and the reasons are complex. Do not pin it on one small segment of a population who have only asked to be treated like human beings.
And please don't pull the "I have gay friends" card. That is insulting whether its gays, blacks, or Jews. Everyone has gay friends. The questions is how you want them to be treated, not how much you dislike Pride Parades.
