What you fail to realize is that I am not a Christian,...
I know you are not a Christian, no one is, there is not a Christian on the earth, such a being does not exist nor can exist.

And while you are not a Christian, like all of us raised around bible belief we all have lots of Christian baggage which colors all our world views. Even the most arch Anti-theist can not be completely free of Christianity as much as we'd all like to be.

Even many gay people still carry that baggage around and they hate themselves for having gay desires and worse they hate others who are not afraid to act on those desires.

For instance:

Republican Jim Wesr, Spokane Mayor. Supported a bill, which failed, would have barred gays and lesbians from working in schools, day-care centers and some state agencies. Voted to bar the state from distributing pamphlets telling people how to protect themselves from AIDS. Proposed that "any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person" among teens be criminalized. Had a sexual affair with an 18 year old boy.

Republican congressman and Christian anti-gay activist Robert Bauman was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old boy he picked up at a gay bar.

Yeah, it's kind of like when I point out the fact that you have NO scientific training, yet you spread more "scientific" manure than a man with a 1,000 acre farm.
You claim knowledge about biology, genetics, sociology, psychology, medicine, anatomy,(have I missed any?). You're a washed up pastor, who reads a couple of articles, which you rarely understand, then get on here and start lying about what the authors say.
Your only goal is to incite ignorance, fear, and hatred of homosexuality. That's the only REAL cross-cultural behavior you know anything about.
Exactly right and very well said. He also rejects biblical teaching when it applies to him:

Prov. 6:16 says, "there are 6 things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him" and the 19th verse says one of these is, "...a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."

He refuses to accept that his biblegod hates him for what he does.

Hardly Queen of DeNial.
A sterile duplicate gendered couple is clearly not equal to marriage.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior. Literally 'unmarriage'.

I nail you for your gay troll bully ad homoan attack on another person instead of addressing the issue, and you turn and do the same to me.

First, you should proofread your posts.
Second, tell us again how you, with your little MSW degree from some no name school, are smarter than the neuroscientist whom attended Cambridge, Göttingen, and Harvard?
Third, isn't it funny how quickly you dismiss anything that doesn't reinforce your narrative? If it agrees with you it is "proven science" if it doesn't it is simply nonsense.
BTW, what agenda was the good doctor whom is homosexual pushing when he said this line of thinking was wrong?
My posts are fine. If there are errors in grammar, punctuation, or sentence structuring, they were made due to the late hour of my post. Nevertheless, apparently I was clear enough to get my point across to you.

However, your comment misrepresents my post.

I did not indicate that Dr. LeVay was out of line when he made his observation. I clearly indicated that the bioethicist, Dr. Antonio Pardo, might not be qualified to draw any conclusions regarding SSSB in animals because bioethicists do not have a deep, formal training in such matters.

If you can prove that Dr. Pardo is a specialist in the field of breeding behavior of animals, then I'd be a little more interested in what he has to say.

Regarding Simon LeVay... If you look at his work, his focus has been on human sexuality. He writes extensively about the subject. But like Dr. Pardo, he does not specialize--doesn't claim specialization--in the field of breeding behavior of animals.

Surely you would agree that educated people can hold opinions. But these opinions cannot be treated as fact until specialists test various theories.

Neither Pardo, nor LeVay, have conducted such tests.

And to be clear, I am not dismissing their opinions. Rather, I am questioning them.

From my own very brief Google research on the matter of SSSB in animals, no scientist has determined why animals exhibit SSSB. They have only observed that a large number of animals DO exhibit SSSB.

I would only add that in my opinion it isn't necessary to continue to ask the question "Why". I believe we should simply ACCEPT that SSSB in animals and humans represent a natural phenomenon.

To me, trying to understand why it is that some people/animals are attracted to members of their own gender is about as important as trying to understand why some people are drawn to the color red, while others are drawn to the color blue.

Attempting to understand homosexuality mainly has its roots in religious dogma. The only reason that people make such a big deal of the subject is because of some ancient writings and beliefs.

I am not attacking you when I point out that you have made numerous, false scientific statements on this and other TOPIX forums.

Stating a fact is not an attack.

When you can bring actual facts to the table, then I would be happy to entertain them.

Until then, stop whining.

My best argument for SSM is that there is no compelling reason against it. It won't hurt you Jizzy. If you don't like SSM, just don't marry a man! Easy!

What a dope!

You pointed out nothing.

You claimed I made false statements with no specific example. In fact, when we do discuss them, you fail. Every time.

Even 'rev' Alice agrees with me!

Rose, just say it's your opinion. We are all entitled to an opinion. No need to put people down because of their religion or why they don't care for a particular group of people. You must have been disliked by many of your friends at one time, maybe it's because you are such a bigot and hater yourself. Have a nice day
