ROFL. For someone who thinks ignorance is dangerous, you display an awfully large amount of it.
1. Wandering eyes doesn't cause marriages to break up. Money Issues and infidelity do. Verifiable fact.
2. Being gay has NO relation to being raised by a mother only. That is also verifiable fact and debunked myth. Gays come from all family types. Looking for a "reason gays exist" to support your belief that single mothers are bad for children is just bupkis.
3. Pushing for one's rights shouldn't be a problem for anyone, UNLESS you want to continue to oppress those persons. Saying gays shouldn't seek equal rights and treatment because it will upset fundamentalists is hilarious. That is like telling a kid to just take it from the bully, because standing up for themselves may just make the bully mad.
Before making blanket characterizations, please do some thoughtful research, because ignorance really is dangerous.
All meant was having Lust doesn't help the situation, I wasn't trying to sound condemning to anyone. I was discussing the problems that Lust can cause. Not always, but it can. I wasn't trying to be extremely specific on any issue there.

Finally, there is scientifically backed research to show what mainstream Americans have always known:

Homosexual-parenting is bad for children.

Mark Regnerus, a researcher at the University of Texas, just published his exhaustive findings, proving children raised by one or more homosexual parents were undeniably harmed by it.

This historic study finally debunks the Homosexual Lobby's myth that children raised in homosexual households turn out exactly the same as those raised in a stable home with a mother and a father.

When compared to children raised by a traditional family, the children of homosexual parents are 3 or even 4 times more likely to indulge in self-destructive habits.

They are also 3 to 4 times more likely to indulge in homosexual activities than kids with a mother and a father in the home.

And maybe the most horrifying revelation, the rate of sexual abuse among these children from parental figures was staggeringly higher...

Not surprisingly, the establishment’s very first reaction was to smear Mr. Regnerus’reputation and attempt to drive him out of academia.

His own university -- acting in support of the Homosexual Agenda -- immediately opened investigations into his research methods, claiming that the results must have been altered.

However, once officials familiarized themselves with his work, they were forced to unequivocally admit that the research was one-hundred percent sound.

Of course even after their endorsement, the pro-homosexual establishment is still insisting that it’s all “lies” and “hate.”

But you and I know better.

They won't nest in anything you out up... They look for out of the way places deep in thick cover... But remember they are migratory birds, like ducks, and will more than likely be just passing through...

yes , I am so sorry , forgot to change the name from another post. Oh well as you said far from being perfect....... We all carry many names as well as many faces, dont ya think? I think what I do , until proven otherwise. Things are never really what they seem, or at least not what you are wanting...Great Day to you.

So? It doesn't matter. James Madison could have been a dogmatic Fundamentalist who wept over a cross every 30 minutes and it doesn't change the fact that he wanted the government and the church to be kept apart in order to protect them both.

Hence, no Jesus language in the Constitution.

The study itself is a fascinating debate. Your post is a fascinating study in propaganda. Consider the language you're using. Scientists don't speak in terms of studies being "100%" sound. That is the way this is filtered through a giddy homophobic community. Even the author of the paper does not talk that way and makes no such claims.

I don't know the meat of the study but I'd be willing to bet money the claims you're making here about it are incorrect, at least in their degrees.

I will reserve judgement on the study until I know more about it but I know a fart when I smell it and this post is stinky.

The forces of ignorance are against teaching children about religion. Don't let the stupid lead the ignorant; protect your right to practice your faith even in public schools.

Do you want the government to stop funding the arts, to protect them both?
