The rest of your post is a rehash of things I've already addressed.
In the end, ss couples are never ever more than a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage. Your assault on me is only a futile attempt to avoid the reality of that deficit.
As I said, I've seen photos of your wife. She's a bit longer in the tooth that 47. If she's only 47, then she's had a hard life. And being married to the likes of you, I can cut her some slack for looking to be in her 60s.

No worries. Thank you for apologizing. I understand your reason, people were pretty harsh to you on this thread; I have read the remarks. I did not take it personally, just wanted to continue or discussion. Your posts have no politically correct inhibitions, so I thought you would be fun to talk to.
Again, I do not feel strongly about this subject, so I may not be the most informed or educated in this matter. I think you know more than I do in regards to this topic. Yes, you are right, the animals' behavior I was using would be best described as bisexual. I was trying to get away with another fallacy, since I do not know enough about this topic, ha... I know now that I can't get away with these with you.
Are you saying that adopted children of homosexual parents will be subjected to the cinderella effect?
Default family situations (adoptive, foster, step and single parent) all have negative impact on children. Ss couples would at the least equal those negative affects. At the worst, the inherent negative self-identity of sexual disorders would only increase the negative affect. Add to that the missing parental gender with ss couples.

Now you may want to think about how that relates to studies that claim otherwise...

Let me use similar logic to ask you a question: if human reproduction is purely sexual, why do we need marriage? It is not a necessary aspect for reproduction; sex alone can reproduce. We have marriage because society is complex. Marriage has legal, financial, and other benefits, not just reproduction.
Yes it does.....but at its core is the sexual union of a man and a woman.

I just realized that the case in the Bible of King Solomon judging between two women claiming the same baby would be an example.

Let me bring you up to speed on Kimare... He has been on these and other forums in TOPIX for going on three years. He has made THOUSANDS of comments against homosexuals, gay marriage, etc. He has learned to temper his comments over time since he knows that being as outrageous as he once was made him sound like a kook.

He stirs anti-homosexual sentiment every chance he gets. In his ideal world, there would be no homosexuals. It's a notion he shares with the likes of Hitler.

Oh, he'll deny that he wants gays to be gassed or cooked in ovens. But he wants us gone nonetheless.

He tells blatant lies about science. He claims that the "theory" of epigenetics will one day lead to a cure for homosexuality. But in his discussions about epigenetics, he will not admit that it is a theory. Rather, he claims that it is a fact.

Young gay people already have a tough enough time coming to terms with embracing the way God made them. Society is very harsh on gays. But I'm sure you know that.

Kimare's words only serve to make like more difficult for young and closeted gay people. His words fuel self-hatred. They fuel other's hatred of gays.

But in three years, he hasn't let up. He has shown himself to be narcissistic and grandiose. He believes that the world would be a better place if only everyone followed his beliefs. He has no tolerance for anyone else's lifestyles or values.

That is why he is so despised here. That's why you see so many people speaking harshly to him. He has never shown any of us an ounce of respect--even when there are those of us who have attempted to respect him.

To address a point you raised in your discussion with him re: homosexuality in the animal kingdom. He will talk about those animals that express bisexual contact. But he won't acknowledge the many other animals that have been observed in lifelong same-gender associations. He refuses to admit that homosexuality is as natural as any other orientation witnessed in the animal kingdom--of which, I might add, humans are members of.

You can make up your own mind about Kimare. I'm just trying to give you some history on him.

Yes... He is a lesbian... And he's married to a woman. He's one of the original same-sex couples.

I think his shit-storm of a genetic makeup also seriously impacted his intelligence.

Now I am understanding. Your concern is on the kids that come from homosexual parents, correct? I feel that concern is valid. I was raised by a single mother. I mean, I turned out successful, but I had to make a lot of mistakes to get here. Knowing that, I cannot condone women who want to have kids without a father, as I understand the hardships that the child will go through. Putting this back into context, a child of homosexual parents will be confused and most likely bullied in school. Statistics show that fatherless children are more likely to engage in criminal behavior. I don't know if there are any statistics for homosexual parents, but I feel that there will be all sorts of risks for that child. I may be wrong, but I feel that children are already being adopted by homosexual parents despite the marriage status. What would banning ss marriage achieve in this respect?
So, you called it a disorder--what are you suggesting is the reason for this? Psychological? Nurture? Genetics?
I have never really thought this far into this subject. This is getting better!
My wife and I have fostered over ten children. Our desire has always been to restore them to their mother and father if possible. Or the very closest alternative. But that would be just one of many implications. Marriage rights and benefits were originally established to support a stay at home mother and children. Two men do not need or deserve those benefits. In the case of military housing and benefits, limited resources are now extended to those who have no potential or need for family resources. The list goes on.

Most professionals believe it is a combination of nature and nurture. I give a high priority to nature. The idea of epi-genetic epi-marker mistakes is a very logical possibility that has yet to be proved.

Here is some more of Kimare's bat-shittery...

Sunday, September 22, 2013
I remember when the Church rose up against divorce. Most couples worked through the ups and downs of marriage because of God, and maybe more so, because of the children. But then psychologists claimed divorce had no affect on children.

And the government intervened with no fault divorce. And the Church decided it was more important to welcome divorced people than to protect the life-long devastation it imparts on children.

I remember when the Church rallied against legalizing abortion. The shame of immorality reined in promiscuity. But doctors said the cost of back alley abortions was too great.

And the government intervened once again. And the Church decided not being harsh was more important than 40 million children being murdered.

Now the Church is being challenged to call ss couples the same as marriage. The courts say mutually sterile, duplicated gendered halves are equal to marriage.

And the government is once again poised to intervene. And the Pope is recommending that once again the Church step back.

Can't help but wonder what on earth that means for children.

All that is left is, "...and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death." Matthew 10:21

Isn't that the logical response when we have brutalized the bonds of marriage and family at the expense of children?

----------

So, Kim is hoping that children will rise up against their same-sex parents and put them to death. He calls it the "logical response".

And FYI, Kimare TOTALLY takes Matthew 10:21 out of context. These are Christ's words to the disciples as He sends them off to spread the gospel. It has nothing to do with encouraging or hoping that children will see the "evil ways" of their parents and have them put to death. Rather, it is a discussion about what the disciples will encounter. They will see disobedient and disrespectful children rise up and cause the death of their parents; the people who brought them into the world and raised them to maturity.

This is another example where Kimare takes scripture and twists it to serve his own selfish needs.

Wouldn't you say that is generalizing a bit? Playing devils advocate here, but there isn't much studies based on this.

I 'hoped' nothing. I quoted a prophecy about the end times, and accurately noted a human response to being abused in the most intimate relationship possible.

You are an example of what a faithless, depraved person does with truth.

Not sure what you are questioning.

The impact of broken homes? Or ss couples with children.

There are numerous long term studies comparing natural parents with default families.

Thanks, veryvermilion. I have seen his track record and noticed he is on homosexual topics frequently.

Although I do not agree with him on many aspects, its more efficacious to discuss points with someone rather than to flame them. I just want to understand why he feels so strongly about this, because I did notice he is on a lot of these threads.

I personally do believe that homosexuality is natural as seen in the animal kingdom. I agree with you on your views of homosexuality for the most part.

I like to play devils advocate to facilitate good discussions as I like to study the art of persuasion and debate. There is something called the backfire effect in psychology/persuasion. Feeling so strongly about a subject will only reinforce kimare's beliefs. Knowing this, I am not trying to convince him. I just want to understand his reasoning for this.

But on the note of young gays in the closet, I think that is horrible. I feel that we should be more accepting to the prospect of homosexuality. It's ruining young lives.

He mentioned his concerns of children raised by homosexuals, which I think can be a good discussion. If you take away those hostile word choices, he makes decent points worth discussion. I'm not defending him, but I think we should discuss child raising. Homosexuals are fine, but what happens when they raise children?

I am fully cognizant of the impact of broken homes. I was questioning the ss couples with question. How about if they can provide a loving and nurturing environment for a child like a regular marriage? Where they are raised is probably big too. I mean, San Francisco may be more accepting than say Wichita Kansas.

You called it a "logical response". I didn't make those words up, Kim. They're directly from your blog.

And the context of the scripture you use has nothing to do with "a human response to being abused in the most intimate relationship possible."

First off, being the child of a same-sex couple is not "being abused in the most intimate relationship possible." That's a bunch of horseshit and you know it.

Secondly, the text indicates the wickedness of children turning on their parents; brothers turning on brothers. It has nothing at all to do with abuse.

You use scripture--the very words that you claim we should all follow--in a deceitful manner. You twisted this verse to make a point that it was never intended to make.

If you had any decency, you would remove the blog. But I won't hold my breath. You've rarely shown decency.
