I do think some people are born that way. I also think the vast majority are shaped that way by their environment.
Biblical scripture has a lot to say on the subject which I already posted. Jesus came that we might all be saved through his redemption. Paul said,“We all have sinned and fell short of the glory of God.”
That came from a former gang member and leader himself. Who knows if the Apostle Paul himself had homosexual tendencies? If he did we don’t know about it but he definitely was an ex-murder and terrorist. But God saved him and used him by his Grace.

In that post you were saying that gays think that Christians focus on homosexuality. I pointed out that rarely do you "read"..."hear " Christians discussing premarital sex between heterosexuals. Which...if I remember correctly most Christians believe...or at least the Bible teaches...it is a sin.

"aglia went on to point out that while she is an atheist she respects religion and has been frustrated by the intolerance of gay activists.

“I think that this intolerance by gay activists toward the full spectrum of human beliefs is a sign of immaturity, juvenility,” Paglia said.“This is not the mark of a true intellectual life. This is why there is no cultural life now in the U.S. Why nothing is of interest coming from the major media in terms of cultural criticism. Why the graduates of the Ivy League with their A, A, A+ grades are complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points.”

“There is a dialogue going on human civilization, for heaven sakes. It’s not just this monologue coming from fanatics who have displaced the religious beliefs of their parents into a political movement,” she added.“And that is what happened to feminism, and that is what happened to gay activism, a fanaticism.”"

There is not a Topix atheist, or a professional one, that can come even close to the intellectual level of Camille Paglia. Even I will take a back seat to her.

She is the real deal intellectual atheist of days past, not one of these spam productions you see on Topix. They are disaffected and noisy people with emotional issues that grab anything they think gives them an excuse to be nasty and hateful.

That is just the way it is.

Oh. My mistake. I thought you said past 200 yards you would have to shoot center mass instead of a head shot.

Must have been someone else.

One day you will learn that whatever Ben says is truth.

Some have liked to ridicule my observations of what happens when you die, meaning you aren't going to be drifting off to eternal sheepy bye bye. The brain shutting down and death is nowhere as clean as you would like to think. It is a material and physical impossibility.

You strictly material types can go through hell as you fall apart bit by bit. Shrieking in terror.

But it doesn't work that way. The body shuts off, the physical brain shuts off, and there is the basic "you" observing the whole process. And, oh shit, what next?

Make reservations before departure.

Now the hard core nutcase Topix atheists will rant in the face of science and reality of the material world. Intelligent and rational people can read that article and see the difficulty there is deciding when you are really dead.

If you truly understood physics and believe only in the material reality you will understand how your thinking will go bananas as the circuitry powering your physical consciousness disintegrates. Not just shut off, but disintegrates.

They don't understand the textbooks they read and the spin put on them by those with an agenda. They think too topically.

Let them begin to further show their ignorance of "reality".

We can pity them, or just not worry about them.
