HUGH,
Why're you a homophobe?
Aren't you aware of the fact that a majority of the posters here are either gay or bisexual?
So, mind your words.
(smiles)
1. I am aware that most of the regulars are suckers of male hens.

2. I am NOT a homophobe and I speak truthfully. A phobia is an irrational FEAR and I neither have an irrational nor rational fear of homosexuals. In addition I don't hate them. What is clear to me is that they are SICK.

If anyone FEARS something, can they help it? If not why the material problem?

Are there not many people in the world INCLUDING homosexuals that are fearful of something?

Are they EVIL or criminals because they FEAR something?

Are there not HOMOSEXUALS who FEAR the following and much more?

1.HEIGHTS
2.COCKROACHES
3.LIZARDS
4.DARKNESS
5.PAIN
6.CATS
7.FAILURE

In terms of HATE, who can stop anyone from HATING another person?

I'll explain to your fu-cking dense brain what &#7716;akhameinu Zikhronam Liv Rakha or Hazal commentaries (Talmudic commenatries) are all about, later.
I am going out to the swank Palms in the Trident for lunch. My friends are waiting for me.
Bye, Monny.
Hugh---I believe it is from a teaching of some that Jesus is currently in Hell BOILING in excrement.

A homosexual has a slightly differently wired brain (anterior commissure part of the brain) from birth as new research suggests that in its structure/function interacts with the amygdala which influences emotions and so such a brain in a gay male veers more towards female emotions which in turn could influence their hormonal activity. There's also differences in the hypothalamus (from birth) between homosexuals and heterosexuals - a nuclei of the hypothalamus, INAH-3, reveals that heterosexual males have double the volume of both homosexual and female subjects. Testosterone levels in the embryonic stage could also play a factor in sexuality/sexual orientation. So, every study indicates that sexual orientation is inborn.
As far as the erroneous old view of homosexuality being a mental disorder is concerned, well, let's analyze this flawed claim:
1) What is mind?
2) Is the mind the same as brain (neuronal activity)?
If mind = brain, then typical homosexual activities like habitual thoughts centered on same sex attraction and frequent indulgence in anal sex would certainly show up as "disordered" synaptic patterns in homosexual brains that significantly differ from the "ordered" heterosexual synaptic patterns in the pleasure centers of the brain. Had this been true, then, mental disorders like say for example schizophrenia and anti-social behavior would more likely show up in gays than is straight men. This is however not observed.
3) If the mind is independent of matter but causally inheres in brain, then, too, we would observe typical "disordered" synaptic patterns associated with homosexual behavior. This, too, is not observed in brain scans.
Since, homosexuals have brains that veer more towards female emotionality we conclude that homosexuality is inborn and is simply one of the many functional modes of sexuality that has its roots in embryonic development.
Joel---A homosexual has a slightly differently wired brain (anterior commissure part of the brain) from birth as new research suggests that in its structure/function interacts with the amygdala which influences emotions and so such a brain in a gay male veers more towards female emotions which in turn could influence their hormonal activity.

Hugh--- In other words homosexuals have an ABNORMALITY of the brain. That is what I have been saying, they are SICK and are to be treated accordingly and not as criminals.

See, human beings contribute to forming a government/nation by first intellectually defining these terms and then giving these intellectual ideas a concrete shape by creating laws and erecting infrastructure and marking out geo-political boundaries and creating an army of personnel to help in the smooth functioning.
Are you really suggesting that first people made up the terms government and nation to then think the possible definitions to give to them and after that, they created laws, built infrastructure and marked geo-political boundaries? LOL

That was not the order of things.

I bet you CAN'T GIVE, FIND or ADVANCE neither ONE example of a nation created in the order you presented.

The term "service" indicates human intelligence and human effort at work.

Who conceives the idea/framework of government? The human mind.

Who executes the idea? Human beings using various natural and man-made resources.

So, human beings conceive the idea of government first and then follows the execution.

We first conceive and then execute.

If the service offered by elected representatives is forcefully imposed on us then I guess at some point there'd be widespread protests and an insurrection if things get out of hand.

Democracy is not participative but veiled autocracy since once the voters cast their ballots the elected group of representatives takes charge of running the nation and its affairs and most of the decisions of the elected representatives are based on whims and self interest and the views of the electorate who voted them to power for say a period of 5 years or so is usually not taken into consideration.

This is the drawback of democracy.

Besides, most elections are rigged and if certain powerful lobbies control both sides in an election then whoever is elected would still serve the selfish interests of the same powerful lobby at work behind the scenes. This is what can be called a shadow government. They are real arbiters/kingmakers.

The alternative to democracy would be benevolent dictatorship.

Every human activity involves the dual process of conceptualization and execution which is an important aspect of the mind-matter matrix functioning in the sphere of human affairs.

I can't call the condition abnormal since the difference in brain wiring between gays and straight people takes place in the embryonic stage itself and so the sexual orientation is inborn and not a matter of choice.

Heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality and asexuality are the various inborn functional modes of sexuality.

It's like say left-handedness and right-handedness which is another inborn trait.

Had the gay brain been "disordered" in its wiring, I am sure this "disorder" would have affected other aspects of the gay man's personality given the fact that neuronal circuits are interconnected in fundamental ways that as a result would have resulted in mental illnesses like schizophrenia, or in impaired cognition, or in criminal/anti-social behavior and the like. These adverse manifestations are spread out among all groups of people whether gay, straight, bisexual or asexual. So, there's nothing disordered/abnormal about a gay brain. Homosexuality is simply one of many functional modes of sexuality.

That is the opinion of a rabbi.

Jesus finds no mention in Torah and other standard Jewish texts.

Jesus is looked upon with disfavor in the orthodox Jewish community because he attempted to mock several key teachings of Tanach, broke the shabbat, ridiculed the clergy (rabbis), spoke of himself as an incarnation of El, introduced monism in a dualistic faith, tried to win over people with parlor tricks learned from sorcerers, taught evils like break up of families/sword over peace and the like and threatened, cursed and abused those who refused the new philosophy he offered. These divisive and incendiary acts of Jesus created angst in the orthodox Jewish circles of those days and the clergy were upset that their cherished beliefs and ancient traditions were being swept away by the radical teachings of Jesus. Fearing a revolt in orthodox Jewish society, the Roman authorities took action against Jesus and arrested him and after a trial crucified him.
