Aaaand...tommyboy demonstrates the stygian depths of his ignorance.

"Normality" is a worthless standard--would you rather see a doctor with a 150 IQ or one with the normal "100"? Should we only send "normal" level athletes to the olympics?

Homoexuality is neither the result of trauma nor a defect. You just don't like it, mostly because you're an insecure adolescent.

I must agree with you on this one. Homosexuality has been around forever and in all species, that does not make it normal. It is caused by some trumatic event early in life or as a genetic defect.
So yes it exists, yes it has always been around but no it is not normal.
Just another nod to pseudo-feel good- science.
I have no problem with you lezbos and homos but you are abnormal. Nothing to be done about it, so I really don't give it much thought. The fate of unborn children is much more important.
We must care for all of Gods creatures, even you guys.

<quoted text>If two men or two women were meant to be together as normal then there wouldbe no need for sexual intercourse with anyon else in order to procreate. The mere fact that your gf or you MUST hook up sexually with a man is showing that something is not right.

<quoted text>There are many who have homosexual tendencies (gay or bisexual) that acknowledge the fact that it is not normal or that God forbids it.nThey go to God for help with their temptations.
Again, no more or less than a heterosexual who has sexual urges to fornicate or for a married spouse to have sexual feelings for another.
Sin is sin. God made us all and because of our sinful nature, he understands our struggles.

Really? Religious practices caused the black plague--the wholesale slaughter of cats allowed rats to breed unchecked. The cats were seen as being in league with satan and were eradicated wherever they could be found.

As a gay atheist, I have NEVER had an STD. I don't need divine intervention; i know what I'm doing.

Here's the thing, Karma: Foo expressed her SENTIMENTS regarding adoption - sentiments which belie her supposed "prochoice" beliefs.
I correctly & appropriately exposed Foo's inconsistencies. I spoke to her expressed SENTIMENTS, while you grasped onto her "legislative" statement like a white-knuckled monkey.
Hope that helps....
see here relativism, its kinda relative. Foo said she would LIKE to see orphaned kids here in America adopted before U.S. citizens go over seas to adopt

unlike your position where you would like to FORCE ALL AMERICAN WOMEN TO FOLLOW YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT ABORTION

Her PROCHOICE position is allow American women the FREEDOM TO make personal health decisions themselves and not have others FORCE women to follow the religious dogma of others.

there was nothing to grasp at.

Its plain and simple

Its called RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, something you do not obviously believe in

BTW RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE ALL "FREE" TO FOLLOW YOU DOGMATIC RELIGION.

Foo, unlike you doesn't believe in FORCING Americans to follow her beliefs

People have sex because we have a sex drive, with the ability to orgasm. We will do so even when reproduction is clearly impossible.
A question I've never seen you twits explain is why the anorectal area has a complete and discrete set of erogenous nerve bundles connected to the pleasure center of the brain. You can achieve orgasm solelythrough rctal stimulation. Why would that be if the ony eason for sex was reproduction?
<quoted text>
I don't think that you understand the whole sexual process.

Sex creates a bondness and God made it incredibly desirable so that we'd want to do it. It's purpose is to continue the human race. The married couple are considered one flesh. Lovemaking allows them to come together and bond in the most special intimate way..God will then create a life with that co-operation if he wills it.

Anything can trigger sexual feelings. Nerve endings are all over our bodies that are involved with our sexuality.

How many adoptable children would there be each year in the US if zygotes, blastocysts, embryos or fetuses were not aborted each year?
GEE considering the hundreds of thousands of U.S. children already in orphanages and you want to add more.

considering the millions of U.S. children who are unwanted, being abused daily, living on the streets with no future and you want to add to that population.

let me guess, you're a Christian right. Only a Christian would condemn someone to a life of, pain, suffering, loveless hell on Earth, and claim they are doing it because they love them.

this is why I disdain religion and the holier than thou hypocrits, the damn evangelical fundamentalist christians....

<quoted text>If both hetersexual and homosexual people are able to procreate, exempting the people who are born sterile, then Nature intends all people to procreate. If homosexuality was a built-in trait/gene in human DNA from our race's very beginning, then I believe the DNA of homosexual people would have been altered over the millions of years to make homosexual people sterile -- they would be born sterile since they should be pre-destined, due to their built-in homosexuality, not to procreate.

But since all humans are able to pro-create, again exempting the people who are born sterile, then Nature saw no reason to alter the DNA of the people who are supposely born homosexual. It was not altered because it would make no sense, from an evolutionary standpoint, that any animal be born sterile. Nature wants all animals to procreate.

Thus any human that chooses not to procreate suffers from a psychological problem and not a DNA/genetic problem.
Mighty garrulous claims. With what form of empirical evidence sinuous back that up?

If nature intended for people to procreate, no one would be born sterile.

And whenever you're ready, you can answer my question about choosing to be heterosexual, Because you haven't yet.

Clearly hell is mentiond in the bible. The name may not be exclusively labeled hell but the concept of being denied entrance into heaven is clear. Our free will choices determine our eternity. God wills nobody be lost but unfortunately our unrepentant sins will leadd us to eternal damnation. While on earth, we have total control of our destiny. We either choose God or we don't by our words and actions.
.
You can't sit here even as toxic as you are and claim that we all will be given our reward in heaven. It is just not even common sense to think that the bible is the word of God yet if we say no to him that we be with him for eternity. Our free will was given to us SPECIFICALLY so that we could CHOOSE him or not.
Please prove the bible is the word of God.

You are in denial about "hell". Your religions distortion of the word has no biblical evidence to support its use within your faith. Then again, you're a fundie

That is why God forbids sex outside marriage.
The forbidden fruit tastes sweet but rots faster. In other words, a moments pleasure isn't worth all the grief that accompanies it .

Quick....zach's got another post for you above. Hurry up and respond. But don't dare touch your blatant ignorance and contradictions regarding the definition of a word that is an integral component of abortion and RvW.

I agree, that you do Know what you're doing.

What happens if your partner doesn't ?

A little late if the condom breaks.

As a former atheist of 20 years, And being woken up by a God, I never believed in. I have found the truth.

I said sexual transmited diseases.

If people remained virgins untill married, and stayed married, only having sex with their spouse, then it would do away with most all we deal with negative.
Divorce -gone
Abortions -gone
Std's -gone

The need to have our sins forgiven -not gone.

The same hell gays go to, is the same hell straight people go.
The same hell whores go to -is the same hell virgins go to.
A person can stop drinking, and go to hell sober.

I'm soo thankful, God woke me up at my home, at 1:30 am, and after I just yeilded to Him, He changed my life forever!!

May the same God, that saved my soul, save yours.

How do you account for all the people who have been able to study and/or work their way out of the ghetto and build a better life for themselves?

According to you, all the people born into poverty exist in a 'loveless hell on Earth' and they supposely stay in that condition all their life.

Unwanted children born into this world will only suffer, huh? They will never experience love or laughter or having a best friend or making love?

You justify abortion by determining that unwanted children will only suffer in this world and they'll never will experience happiness. That's assuming a lot. You know what they say about assuming, right?

<quoted text>Oh, hell, no! I would love to hear one of these anti-choicers say that they have adopted or fostered any baby, much less a hard-to-adopt child, or a teenager. I understand that they have a right not to adopt, but it's hypocritical of them to insist that women carry out unwanted pregnancies to term if they aren't willing to step up to the plate. In any case, they cannot force any woman to stay pregnant.
There have been a few anti-choicers as you so lovingly call them who have stepped up and adopted....Old School Met Fan being one that comes to mind. But that's beside the point. Since when is the willingness and/or ability to adopt a pre-requisite for speaking out against what is believed to be a fundamental wrong ? Are you opposed to child abuse ? Would it make sense for you to be required to step up and agree to adopt these victims once they were removed from their abusive parents, before you were permitted to speak out against their abuse ?

I'd like to answer that with a question: if a person chooses not to engage in any homosexual acts during their lifetime, is it a safe assumption to say that they were heterosexual?

If the problem is pregnancy, then an abortion certainly will take care of it.
<quoted text>
It doesn't solve anything. It may seem to, but only causes other problems, mentaly, spirituly and other.
If a woman has a sick 5 year old, and just lost her job, would killing the kid solve her problems?
Same logic, by the way.
even if a woman is pregnant, becouse of rape, will killing the baby solve her problems? Would killing the rapist solve her problems?
Plus rape only accounts for 3% of all abortions.

The truth is, when anyone makes bad choices, they should deal with those choices. It doesn't mean we can't have compassion on them, but we don't need to enable them.

If a woman gets pregnant "from sleeping around, then many are more settled in life once the baby comes, as long as they are to raise it.

We've all made bad choices, and some we live with forever, but killing babies (no matter what you can them) is a horrific thing, that only the most uncivilized people should be excused to do. Now that I think of it, that's how it is.

If I kill a baby in the womb, it is murder, but if the "mother " does it, it is a choice./
