For rational mankind, the question is not one of superior rights.
It is one of right vs. wrong.
Your right to travel freely ends at my property line, therefore my property rights are superior to your travel rights. I have no no say in where you can travel, unless you are violating my superior right (by traveling onto my property).
And for that exact reason, we do not condone cannibalism, rape, incest and filicide, as observed in the animal kingdom.

If two individuals mutually consent to burn down their house, or gouge each other's eyes out -- and since these actions affect no one else -- shall society condone?
If it TRULY didn't affect anyone else, yes. But such things at the very least could be considered disturbing the peace.

You continue to deny the plain fact that same-sex behaviors are incongruent with Nature's design.
Then why do they occur?

Owning a gun, for example.
Each individual has a different definition of what it is to "harm others."
Again, you propose a state of chaos.

CREED

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone,
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.

We believe in sex before during
and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.
We believe that sodomy's OK
We believe that taboos are taboo.

We believe that everything's getting better
despite evidence to the contrary.
The evidence must be investigated.
You can prove anything with evidence.

We believe there's something in horoscopes,
UFO's and bent spoons;
Jesus was a good man just like Buddha
Mohammed and ourselves.
He was a good moral teacher although we think
his good morals were bad.

We believe that all religions are basically the same,
at least the one that we read was.
They all believe in love and goodness.
They only differ on matters of
creation sin heaven hell God and salvation.

We believe that after death comes The Nothing
because when you ask the dead what happens
they say Nothing.
If death is not the end, if the dead have lied,
then it's compulsory heaven for all
excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin and Genghis Khan.

We believe in Masters and Johnson.
What's selected is average.
What's average is normal.
What's normal is good.

We believe in total disarmament.
We believe there are direct links between
warfare and bloodshed.
Americans should beat their guns into tractors
and the Russians would be sure to follow.

We believe that man is essentially good.
It's only his behaviour that lets him down.
This is the fault of society.
Society is the fault of conditions.
Conditions are the fault of society.

We believe that each man must find the truth
that is right for him.
Reality will adapt accordingly.
The universe will readjust. History will alter.
We believe that there is no absolute truth
excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth.

We believe in the rejection of creeds.

-- Steve Turner

Romans 1:19-20, 24-28, 32

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

***

What this means is that these individuals' hearts have become so hardened by these particular sexual sins that they can no longer see the error of their actions.

Sadly, without an awareness of sinfulness, there is no repentance.
Without repentance, there is no forgiveness.
Without forgiveness, there is no salvation.

A tragedy, to be sure.

If homosexuality were unnatural it would not occur. However, it does.

You're a nutball bible thumper who spends way too much time worrying about what other people do.

You must assume, then, that cannibalism, rape, incest and filicide are natural -- and that our civil authorities spend "way too much time worrying about what other people do" in regard to these matters.

This country has this thing called "due process". They have another thing called "scrutiny". When we make laws significantly infringing on an individual right, we have to determine:

1. Does the law serve a legitimate government interest? and if so:

2. Is the law the least restrictive means of achieving that interest?

The district court ruled in the California case that the state does not have a legitimate interest in prohibiting gays from marrying, and gave several reasons for that ruling.

[QUOTE]Again, you propose a state of chaos.
I propose nothing significantly different from what we're doing now, but I'd like to see stricter scrutiny used when a law affecting individual liberty is challenged.

Don't worry folks!

The lazy Moderators will eventually get around to changing the topic heading to:

"'-tip-'s religion"

Until then, feel free to confuse the hell out of them by discussing the posted topic freely.

You must be quite ignorant if you cannot note the salient differences between consensual adults engaging in homosexual sexual conduct on the one hand, and cannibalism, rape, incest and filicide on the other.

Consenting perv adults do immoral things regulary that harm other people.

For example, elective abortion, STD proliferation, and pornographic exploitation.

It's ok.

NONE of that was present at the "Stonewall Columbus Pride Parade" that was "reminiscent of a Fourth of July parade" according to "The Lantern" (Sunday Jun 23) at ...

I do hear that there were some barking dogs interfering with the music, though.

Elective abortions are legal, as is pornography.

STD's are hardly limited to affecting "perverts", no matter how you define that term.

There was no law affecting the individual liberty of same-sex Americans.

You must be quite ignorant if you cannot note that every other aberrant human sexual behavior is defined as a paraphilia by the APA, as listed in its DSM-IV. Currently, there are 547.

Things that make sane folks go "Hmmm..."

There is only one reason that same-sex behaviors were removed from the DSM in 1973 -- and that reason is purely political.

Of course there was. The liberty to marry each other, which they had prior to Prop 8. There is no legitimate government interest in banning it (an identically worded initiative (proposition 22) was voted in 2000 and struck down by the state supreme court in 2008), and that will be the argument that eventually will remove these bans nation-wide.
