<quoted text>Goota educate you...
...I never said that gays are the opposite of heterosexuals, in fact not even close. Homosexuals are associated with the same disorder as bestiality, pedophilia, frotterism and necrophilia, and they are diagnosed under the 302 classification. Heterosexuality is not even in the book.
Trust me, boy, you will not catch me around gay men either, so it is irrelevant that I do not have an interest in 15 year olds, I am a straight normal male. I do not have to adjust the bar to make myself included.
A father and his 15 year old son, have three issues, homosexuality, incest and social acceptance of the age as being consensual.
I can tell that the notion of validity in arguments has you upset, so your anger meter is rising. Understand this, the comparison has always been homosexuality with other paraphilias like pedophilia, frotterism, transgenderism and necrophilia.
Other than social constructs and political correctness, please explain what scientific studies and research caused gays to have reason and evidence to remove homosexuality from the DSM but keep the others??????????
Since, most all gays were abused sexually or mentally abused as children, your arguments do not wash.
Take time out and study. Leave your hate behind, it smells like homophobia.

At one time women could not vote. Asians could not own land in this nation. Blacks were considered property in many of the states.
We're an evolutionary nation which has and will continue to be a representation of what the Constitution espouses.
Now we have one more speedbump to cover. The equalization of gays and it's being done. A New Mexico county just announced it will be legally binding for gays to marry.

If you are referring to the reading of the Bible Supreme Court ruling, it was the Abbington School District vs. Schmepff ruling. It in fact said that America is not a secular nation and that the court can not take a position in favor of secularism or religion and give either an advantage.

It being historically true that the American people are a religious people,

and the recognition of religion in the most solemn acts of their history,
as well as in the constitutions of the states and the nation,
The courts - in construing statutes - should not impute to any legislature a purpose of action against religion.
[NOTE: We are repeating this line for emphasis, this advice from the US Supreme Court to all lesser courts:]

BEYOND ALL THESE MATTERS:

When the comment came up about how David Dreier was behind this mess about to take place in the mountain of SGV.

San Gabriel Mountains And Rivers Protection Bill Introduced In Congress!

In the first week of 2011, Representative David Dreier (R-San Dimas) introduced the Angeles and San Bernardino National Forests Protection Act (H.R. 113).

The bill proposes to protect 18,276 acres of public land as additions to the existing Sheep Mountain and Cucamonga Wilderness areas in the San Gabriel Mountains of southern California.

In addition, H.R. 113 proposes to complete Wild & Scenic Studies for the San Gabriel River (North, West, and East Forks), San Antonio Creek, and the Middle Fork Lytle Creek.

You must be mad and fuming and suicidal, because the only truth is now, and now 37 STATES DO NOT ALLOW SSM, Russia does not allow the teaching around children and 187 countries do not acknowledge it and even an APA president has exposed the lie behind the gay marriage and rights issue.
GLAD YOU CAN GO TO SLEEP. DON'T LET THE TRUTH CAUSE YOU TO HAVE NIGHTMARES.
It is okay, I am a Christian, but I have gay, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Catholic, Mormon, JW and Hindu friends, as well as Russian,, Chinese, Japanese, Thai,Filipino, Iranian, Persian, Armenian, Mexican, wow I am tired, German, Irish, Black, Puerto Rican, Italian, etc.
And what of my links that you seem to be ignoring that I posted a few posts back from the APA and why the DSM was changed in 1973? What's the matter hater boy,can't take the truth? Hey,are you by chance related to the good Reverend Phelps out of Topeka Kansas? You and your hate sure seem to be a mirror image of his philosophy!

Why the APA changed the DSM in 1973 and the many peer reviewed study's that followed the original that Evelyn Hooker did with the very same results every time! They studied a group of common average people without knowing if they were gay or straight and found that they could not in fact identify which ones were gay or straight because they were all within the guidelines of your average sane person! No difference,therefore NO psychological malady's!Here you go again,scroll down to Evelyn Hooked and the many study's that followed,again all with the same results! So the real question is when do you stop lying?

It does, when you seek to allow a mismatched set of people to marry. They do not compliment each other. Sexual gratification is not a valid reason to marry. Nor is financial gain.
Stupid, the whole "not compliment each other" thing is meaningless nonsense. I didn't say anything about sexual gratification, I'm talking about equal protection under the law. And if financial gain were the goal, the gay people could just marry a member of the opposite sex to get it. Damn, you are dumber than a rabbit fart.

Why should I ask them if they are straight, I can document that 97-99% will be straight. I can also document that 99.999% will have two arms and two legs. What I must discover is the 1-3% who will later claim they were born gay and know it as a fact, or the guy who lost his arms or legs in a car accident, but claim he was born with no leg or arm. Understand.
Next, what we must do is to examine the children who were abused as children, the examine all the gays who were abused before puberty or after, then examine the impact and correlation between the two.
