I don't give a shit what people do for sexual pleasure but I will disagree with you on this statement: This is why God gave us a brain and hopefully a moral conscience. Humans are born with a brain, "Moral conscience" is learned.

I suppose you are right about that. I guess what I meant to say is that we have higher thinking abilities which includes the ability to form a conscience. Not everyone lives in an environment where that is so easy, as some people do not have any positive influences or anyone to teach them right from wrong. But the human brain is capable of learning these things. I don't care so much what people do sexually either, so long as it isn't abusing someone or exploiting someone who is underage. Jebus brought up homophobia to begin with and I was just trying to have a friendly debate about it. It is an issue that is not one sided and has a lot of room for opinions, regardless of how simple people try to make it.

And you've just described what's wrong with society today. WAY too many babies being born with no father figure in their lives. WAY too many women shitting out babies to collect more welfare. WAY too many people that think it's the government place to raise there kids. WAY to much government interference in raising children.

Face, I agree 100 percent. Noone wants to admit it but I think the real and only problem with society is the breakdown of families. So many children live in one parent homes, homes with several different girl/boy friends coming in and out, being raised by relatives, being put in foster care, etc. Sometimes these things are unavoidable, and some people make it work and still raise a well rounded child but for the most part, it falls apart. I've worked in mental health before and you have no idea how many distraught mothers brought their children in saying that they are afraid their child "had a problem" such as ADD or any number of mental disorders. The child would be examined and all that was really wrong is the child did not do what you told them do do and was very misbehaved. It was usually quite obvious that bad parenting was the problem, not the child's mental capacity. I didn't grow up in the ideal family myself, it was actually quite dysfunctional. I grew up with both a mother and father but my mother left on down the line and got on drugs. My parents fought all the time too and we were quite poor. However, I was taught to always mind my parents, to be respectful, to do well in school, and they always gave me shelter, food, and healthcare. My father, bless his heart, always did his best to teach me right from wrong. All that stuck with me so that I didn't grow up to be on drugs or make babies that I didn't want and couldn't afford. You have got to have the one influence to keep you on the right path because there is so much room to go wrong. It's sad that a lot of people don't have that and I blame most of it on the parents. And you are right, the government interferes too much. Now unruly children are diagnosed with ADD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, etc. so that parents can find a handy excuse for their child's misbehavior and give them drugs to calm them down. OD is a total fake disorder in my opinion (the correct term is "spoiled brat") but ADD does exist, just not in as many cases that are diagnosed. The government also tells you how or if you can punish your child, tells you to reward them even if they didn't win, tells them that their sexual feelings are okay (no matter what they are)..ugh, so many things wrong here. It seems to be a recent thing as I grew up in the 90s and they still paddled children at my school and up until my last years at high school, I didn't know any classmates that were pregnant or on drugs either. Anyway, when children are raised improperly and without guidance, they turn into irresponsible and messed up adults, usually.
