Most Gays can't tell love from sex, which is just one way in which they harm themselves.
Neither can you. Sex is something you have with other people....and you may be surprised to know, you really don't have to PAY for it.

MOSTLY...what does that mean?

Over 60 years of research demonstrates you are relying on the prejudice you were taught as a child, not an understanding of the science recognized by every mainstream medical and mental health organization in the country.
On the other hand, legal discrimination relies on nothing more than a tradition of discrimination and prejudice supported by nothing more than a few highly disputed interpretations and mistranslations of ancient religious texts which are contradicted by other more important verses.
The science recognised by every mainstream medical and mental health organisation in the country must acknowledge the failure to find the long sought after "gay gene" and most informed discussions on the cause of same sex attraction today involves a bio psychosocial model.

The question of the morality of same sex relations is separate to and distinct from the science of aetiology.

Any unbiased plain reading of scripture resolves that without question insofar as the Bible is concerned.

Your coined phrase is only somewhat apt.
Heat IS the emission of and excitation by photons, vibrating light at infrared wavelength.
Your assumptions in these matters are way off base.
Rev. Ken
Light in this context refers to that part of the electromagnetic spectrum visible to the human eye and to this end the heat merely makes one feel all nice and warm whilst being kept in the dark.

So the phrase is apt.

<quoted text>Only a SICK freak like you would cheer on heterosexual child abuse as GREAT. It is ALL CHILD ABUSE, neither straight nor gay. When are you going to get this part? NEVER!
Only someone projecting their own sexual abuse as a child would construe such meaning from my post.

When are you going to get over it and stop using it as an excuse for your bad behaviour?

Certainly the last sentence above is true - if one insists on running one's life and the lives of others under the dictates of superstition and tribal taboo.

Sorry. No good.

Just because you wish to limit your perception of light to a narrow range of what YOU can see is not sufficient cause for ignoring the rest of the spectrum.

<quoted text>It's odd that you would employ such bigoted hate toward Catholics, especially concerning their homosexual scandal. The priest abuse scandal was over 80% homosexual in nature and primarily involved molestation of minor young men, with little actual pedophilia. It was indeed a homosexual scandal.
Of course it's also strange that you post on a thread about a church that still officially recognizes the authority of Scripture when you yourself choose to live in open rebellion against it:
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Why don't you cite the Jay report?

They called it mostly homosexual activity, too. Of course, they rather conveniently ignored the distinction between pedophile and homosexual, which distinction truly does exist.

Nevermind that the Roman priesthood is excluively male.

Neither did they publish the percentage of their priesthood that s homosexual, yet not pedophile. They do have this statistic.

Sexual child abuse by heterosexuals is just as bad as sexual child abuse by homosexuals and bisexuals, either of which adversely affecting personality development of the child including but not limited to problems in sexual development such as same sex attraction.

So yeah really bad because the children turn out to have problems in adulthood just like you did.

No, I did not.

Pedophilia, whether heterosexual or homosexual, is still pedophilia.

I ignored no such thing. YOU, on the other hand, have taken to writing anything you can about another person, if you think it will successfully misdirect the conversation.

The Jay report data contains the percentage of Roman priests that are homosexual and not pedophilic. I don't have these statistics. But, my guess is that about 1-2% of their priests are pedophiles. It may be more.

But, even this is plenty enough to wreak havoc.
