You are confusing equality in expression with equality in substance. Just like you do with relationships.
No religion has a more powerful or profound impact for good than Christianity does.
One of the 5 pillars of Islam is the requirement to perform acts of charity. Xianity enourages it, but does not require it. Thus Islam is a greater force for good than xianity.

Just ignore all of that violent jihad crap, tha's just the muzzies trying to catch up with the xian death toll. Of course, the muzzies have the technological advantage, so they need to grow out of the violence REAL soon, or they will overshoot the xian death toll, and then the xians will have to go back to killing heretics and infidels...

I sure got a lotta peanuts asking a question without any answers.
HIV/AIDS continues to disproportionately impact the LGBT community – in fact, newest infections are highest in young gay and bisexual men, particularly young black men. It’s the subject of a White House conference today at Morehouse College in Atlanta, one in a series the administration is holding on LGBT issues.
......
And that's why so many people want to deny gay folks legal marriage? Because marriage and monogamy INCREASE the incidence of AIDS/HIV?

How do you get THAT from supporting other good and law-abiding people marrying and forming families?

Hey dolt, we don't "fix" what isn't broken.
Oh, and epigenetics is one word, not hyphenated you moron.
But Kimare does have one (small) point correct. This does not happen often, and it should be nurtured.

Now is the time to start this discussion. In time, science will discover the root causes of sexual orientation. In time, science will discover methods for making changes to a person's genetic code.

Put that together, and you will have someone calling for a "fix" for homosexuality.

I'll post a scientific article right after you post yours proving the amount of anal sex you claim gay people have!!! Hurry back with yours dear.
Please explain how HIV was spread throughout the gay community affecting such a large percentage more so than any other given community of people, thank you.

Kids pray for and desire many things that are not in their best interests. The only reason that I wished to be straight was out of a need to protect myself from a disapproving society and family. I would have been perfectly fine with accepting my orientation had I not risked violence, being ostracized, becoming homeless, etc. I enjoyed my attractions to other guys, just like a heterosexual enjoys his attractions.
So it is insincere to simply say that I wished to be straight. It requires qualification. You know it and so does everyone else.
You say that most parents want to do what's best for the child. How naïve... How many parents have forced their children into sports, dance, music, etc. for their own prideful reasons?
I look at kids today and have NO idea how they keep up with all of the crap they're pushed into. Some kids work non-stop from 7am to 8pm or 9pm, going to practice or lessons or some other such silliness that they have no interest in.
And it is RARE that a parent will hear that their child is gay and supports him/her 100%. Many want their kids to remain closeted or change their orientation in order to protect the family's sense of pride.
Ever hear of "honor killings" where a parent--usually a father--kills his child--usually a daughter--to protect the honor of the family?
Ever hear of abuse and neglect of children? Millions of kids in the U.S. suffer at the hands of their parents who are either sociopaths, mentally ill, and/or chemically dependent.
Ever hear of those parents who withhold medical treatment from their children; preferring to use prayer to try to heal a sick child?
So, you'll forgive me if I don't buy your claim that parents always do what is best for their child.
Finally, your comment about "default families" is ridiculous. Any couple or individual who adopts a child in order to provide a loving and supportive home is not creating a "default family". It's an insult to the millions of people--gay and straight--who have adopted children.
I'd have to say both your answers are evidence you need help, and why gays know nothing of being a parent.

It is answers like yours that inspire me to keep up the fight.

This article cites a study by the Centers for Disease Control’s National Survey of Family Growth which indicates the prevalence of anal sex in heterosexual couples.
It's hardly a "porn article".
You just don't like the article because it doesn't provide enough lurid discussion about hot, sweaty man-on-man anal sex.
Compare what the article asserts with what the study says.

Then check who the article quotes.

Get real idiot.

Why do you want restrictions on others if it doesn't effect you?

Sounds like you want to be the one to decide what restrictions should or should not apply...hmmm?

<quoted text>Guess you interviewed all them kids huh dipstick. and I'm sure what they actually thought wasn't persuaded by the fact that they felt sorry for their own 'parents' and didn't want to hurt their feelings further. Even a kid raised by an abusive drunk has feelings towards their parents, huh, that you probably know more about first hand. Or the fact that a parent of a queer kid isn't actually going to say how disgusted they are so as to not lose that child. Once again, probably something you are more familiar with . Fruitloop
In the real world kids don't get to choose their parents. Adopted kids have more of a say-so in who is adopting them than natural offspring.

And we all know that kids, once they reach their teens, feel embarrassed about their parents--how they talk, where they work, how they dress, the car they drive, etc.

Having same-sex parents would be no more of a burden to them than anything else.

If a child's parents cannot provide a good home and the adopted child can prove it, then they can return to the foster care system. All children--adopted or not-have that option

Now if this be true then we are in for a bit of hollering hear to also included. Their arent no dout that what we must do is stop the whole show right in its tracks and give a think to running off and starting up where we can be free of whatever that is and join christ and discover the releif of the scripture. That is what they say, folks say.
