Oh yes, I forget the Topix Atheist! rules of debate.
If you say anything that could be construed as being against homosexuality, you instantly get the anti-gay label.
You're the one that posted a common anti-gay argument, that people "choose" to be gay because a baby can't have sex.

I was just pointing out the source of what you were saying. Sorry if it came out differently.

Do you want to reconsider that argument now that you know its source? And the fact that it is a stupid argument?

Provocation?
Having an agenda is not a reason for firing someone. We all have agendas.
Having an agenda does not disturb the greater operation.
What are firing offenses are if one ignores one's job in order to advance their agenda, or becomes disruptive in the advocacy.
Or are you saying Christians should be fired for having an agenda? After all, many Christians are quite provocative for their agenda.
Wow!

You left Lucid Lane on that one and got trapped on Loop Road.

What is "testerone"?
My topology professor showed me one of his student evaluations, in which the students get to critique the course, in this case a freshman level course.(Yes, even full professors sometimes teach freshman level courses.)

This student had written..."Too many testes."

Oh, Jeez. Can you be any more inane? How did I compare you to Nazis?
That was in the part you deleted.
You would fit right in with the KKK. It's the same mentality.

BTW...you better hope no one ever decides to discriminate against your in-group.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

-- Pastor Niemöller, as quoted in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_ ...

----------

“First they came …” is a famous statement and provocative poem attributed to pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis' rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group. There is some disagreement over the exact wording of the quotation and when it was created; the content of the quotation may have been presented differently by Niemöller on different occasions.[1]

I don't have any "use" for women, Douche. They are family, friends, lovers, and/or co-workers, not utilities.

If you don't know how fackin' perverse that was, there's nothing more to say but pity the women in your sphere of influence. I will give kudos to your one-handed typing skills tho'. Spread some papers next time. Creep.

I reluctantly enter this discussion, but just to say one thing.

I very seriously doubt that Dave's penis serves any current purpose other than to connect his bladder to the outside world.

And it's not just the testerone.

<quoted text>There is more than one motivator.

Sex is not the principle motivator, in most cases of rape. It's not the principle motivator for serial rapists.

What's the difference between someone who pays for sex, and a rapist?

That difference, whatever it is, is the principle motivator. It's the thing that turns them into a rapist. Remove it, and there is no rapist. If you just remove their sex drive, they'll probably still kidnap people and do other stuff to them to exert control over them.
Sex is secondary to control.

I agree with you on everything else.

Only weak, spineless cowards like you need evidence.

But it is obvious, you know there is a God,,,,,you just want to sin and rebel against God because you trust your Liar called Satan and you somehow think you can get away with it without suffering the consequences.

Your weak willed attempt to divert from this reality is not going to work....and I know you know you are lying to yourself, you silly and desperate brainless atheist.
We appreciate all the good work your doing here for our cause, porter.

Thank you for your christian love.

Kidnapping is closer to rape than rape is to consensual sex.

The difference between a rapist and a non-rapist is not their sex drive.
