that looked more like a short cut to thinking.
who really knows what is "normal"??
"normal" might just be a safe place for bigots to hide.
and that is about it.

"that looked more like a short cut to thinking." No, it has been exhaustively studied through the centuries and stood up to every test, until now. Merely throw in some legalese and enough wanna-be lawyer types, and add a few libertines and we arrive at our current point.

the rest of us "normal" people dont discriminate based on individual sexual preferences.
you see, to the rest of us "normal " people.....gay marraige is NOT a moral issue.
it is mearly another civil rights fight.
one that you are losing quite rapidly.
Oh, the cute widdle way you have of claiming that you represent all the other people is so precocious. Except that you do not speak for the majority of people, you merely speak for yourself. And claim the majority is behind you.

You get the clue. Your rationale is not valid, else it would be up to this comparison. Alcoholism or homosexuality, it doesn't matter, both are wrong. Both exist in the world. My rationale holds up to either premise. If it is wrong, it is wrong. Period.

Alcoholism is a disease. It impairs one's ability to function in society, hold a job, contribute to a marriage/family, and survive. It kills by destroying livers and contributing to automobile accidents.

Homosexuality is not a disease. In and of itself it destroys nothing. The negative reactions to homosexuality cause most of the harm that comes from homosexuality.

you bigots havn't ever succeeded in presenting a rational arguement as to WHY you think homosexuality is wrong...

the rest of us DO NOT think of it as WRONG....but simply as a preference, and a civil rights issue.

you claimimg some sort of moral high ground, with your bigotry is laughable!!!

the majority of people ARE behind gay marriage being accepted.

58% of them, according to the ABC/washington post poll that came out last week.

up from 23% in 1996.

showing clearly that you are on the wRONg side of this issue, historically,.

so let me get this straight so everyone can see how silly you are!!

your arguement for why homosexuality is wrong, is that men have dicks and and women have vagina's???

can you elaborate??

or does it have something to do with your personal beliefes instead of an arguement based on reason and science.....

what exactly does evolutionary design have to do with someones sexual preference??
..... our race has been expanding rapidly during the industrial age......why would a small percentage of the population being gay, matter for the over all survival of our race.

BTW: we have what is called "frozen sperm"

and frozen eggs...

so really,in throery, we wouldnt actually need marriage between a man and a women to survive as a race...

you are way out in right feild...

look at the bigoted steps NC has taken with that 'well screw ya with 'states rights" arguement.........
rights like marraige, should be universal through out our nation.
Actually we do that all the time, we decided that the minority of blacks could be integrated into our schools, against the wishes of the majority for example.

We are not a nation of mob rule, but a nation of law

<quoted text>
Normal is a subjective word. However, homosexuality is not normal. This is explained through science, because man and woman were put on this earth with complementary sex organs meant to procreate the species. This is beyond discussion. By claiming normality in their relationships homosexuals, and attempting to use the government to legally bless their unions, they hope to indoctrinate society to accept it as so. In this process they are affecting one of the freedoms most parents desire to have for their children. That is to have them educated with the understanding of homosexuality that they consider to be self evident. Granted that people have abused this basic tenet of nature in many ways, including homosexuality, this does not alter what should be seen by any rational mind as the fact that homosexuality is not normal. This is not to say that you cannot be gay, you can. But do not ask us, or expect us, to recognize it as valid, and equal to heterosexuality, because it is not. Using the government to force this view upon us is actually setting your movement back.
Many, many scientists--people who are much smarter than you or I--I have determined after years of study and thorough observation that homosexuality is a normal orientation along the continuum of sexual orientation.

Who, exactly, are YOU to refute their findings?

Do you have an advanced degree in medicine, psychology, pediatrics, sociology, biology, or any other physical/mental health sciences?

You, like Kimare, are just some guy with an OPINION.

Why is it that you will accept all other aspects of medicine (I assume you go to a doctor on occassion), but are unwilling to accept their conclusions that homosexuality is normal?

How many times have you heard about a homosexual falling ill simply because he/she is homosexual?

I'm not talking about AIDS or any other STD that impacts BOTH heterosexuals and homosexuals.

I'm talking about a person who cannot function in society due to their being attracted to a member of the same gender?

Granted, there are countries and communities where being homosexual is difficult because the community has MORAL, not scientific, objections homosexuality.

You need to get it through your head that homosexuality has been here since the beginning of mankind and will be here long after you or I are gone. To pretend that it is something that can be cured or that it will go away simply because YOU disagree with it is childish. It's a form of magical thinking.

The sooner you come to peace with this FACT, the happier you will be.

Alcoholism, unlike homosexuality, impacts a person's ability to function in society.

Homosexuals hold jobs, have families, go on vacations, go to church, and live happy and productive lives.

By its very definition, an alcoholic is someone who experiences consequences as a result of overindulgence. These may be medical, legal, social (family problems, job loss, etc.), psychological. An alcoholic cannot function due to their use.

You can find "alcohol abuse" and "alcohol dependence" in the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual" (DSM), which lists psychiatric disorders. You can also find it in the "International Classification of Diseases" (ICD), which lists medical conditions.

You will not find homosexuality listed in either of these internationally recognized listings of disorders and diseases.
