But I'll apply your "logic" to behavior: speaking Japanese isn't natural because if it were, we'd all speak Japanese.
Scientifically it must either be a lifestyle choice or a abnormal flaw

According to whom dear? I mean, when you consider that there is no scientific evidence to support either contention and a fairly decent supply which proves you really don't know what you are talking about.

That's the first thing that you've that is correct. We don't all speak Japanese.
Homosexuality is a behavior. Behavior based upon orientation. Orientation that most of us find objectionable.
Only people who have sexual insecurities or irrational beliefs find homosexuality objectionable. People like you.
R Hudson wrote:
Any child that has never been taught anything, at all, about homosexuality will recoil from such advances, except the small minority that are "oriented" that way...
And gay people don't like advances from members of the opposite sex. So what?
R Hudson wrote:
It is why you gays spend so much time seeking the protection of legislation. If most of us didn't care, you wouldn't need protection, and you would have gained your protection long ago. Up until now, we had decency and morals running the country.
Such as? Shooting people in the back for striking? The government telling us which sex acts we can engage in with fellow consenting adults?
R Hudson wrote:
Now, we seem to be about interpreting the constitution to allow anything at all. Even immoral behavior. The Founding Fathers never intended
that there be no slavery, that Natives not be used for target practice, that women could vote...
R Hudson wrote:
this issue to arise, but if they had foresaw it, they would have included specific amendments against it. You know it, I know it, we ALL know it. You are trying to exploit loopholes. And, unfortunately, you have many sympathizers, in key places, to railroad it over the majority of us that still care about right being right, and wrong being wrong. You cannot blur the line and expect us to accept it.
Why do you lie and claim to be Wiccan?

But ugly, something can only be wrong if it involves non consenting parties. Nobody has to marry someone of the same sex if they don't want to.

One hundred fifty odd words and not a single coherent thought between them. Maybe you should start drinking after you have finished posting what you are going to pass off as your thoughts. Reality check cupcake, you're just another malinformed useful idiot and if all you are going to do is babble, you're not worth the effort.

You just proved my point.
No, because you didn't make a valid point.

You tried to say a lot, but there was very little meaning or truth in it.

There are NO studies that show an "imbalance" for same sex parents.

It's perfectly normal for someone to respond with verses from the Bible to a poster who tries to use Bible verses out of context as a club to beat others with, whether they believe in them or not.

When a poster such as yourself points to ONE incidence where a gay person behaved badly, it is perfectly logical to point out the fallacy of applying that to ALL gay people, by showing that straight folks can behave just as badly on occasion.

If you make logical arguments, you are more likely to be treated to a reasoned response. Otherwise, expect to get back what you dish out.

If love, commitment, marriage and family life are so wrong, then why do so many straight people value it?

Is it ONLY wrong if you were created with only the ability to be attracted to the same gender?

How does that work, exactly?

Prove it's not true.

Provide us with several logical and reasonable arguments as to why ANYONE who is secure with their own sexuality would worry about someone else who can only be attracted to the same gender.

Do you think gay folks spend a great deal of time worrying about who you might want to marry?

I though the humpty-dumpty issue was a done deal.

All those load mouths who don't like the issues between adults can suck on raw eggs like most Republicans do.
