If so, then what did his father want with you?
In any case, isn't it possible that being a "gay" role model for your son had an adverse effect on his development?
Wow.Folks like you blame the straight Dad, the straight Mom and now the gay dad as well.

Ever stop to think there isn't any "blame" in this case?

Oh I forgot. Your entire faith is based on blame and shame.

You remind me of an old joke I recently heard updated:

What the difference between vultures and Jewish Mothers, Fundamentalist Ministers or Catholic Priests?

One waits till you're dead before it eats your heart out.

<quoted text>Gotcha! So, you are claiming that Christianity should reach out, love, and to include pedophiles, rapists and zoophiliacs, then find some room to find a cure for homosexuality and share how gayness is a demonic sin which can healed. Otay.
You sure don't get it. I hope your hatred and bigotry keep you warm at night.

So, you wiggled into your brain that the 98% straight population should somehow account for more suicides. Well, you be wrong, since the 2% gays account for 53% of all suicides.

Are you suggesting that he hates rapists, pedophiles and murderers and you love them? We all hope that your hatred and bigotry does not need you to a typical gay demise, suicide? Honestly, don't do it, simply be cured.

Prove it, Silly One.

I can see how creating multiple hostile characters on gay/lesbian threads while pretending to be straight might be classified as a disorder, though.

Why the obsession with gay folks?

<quoted text>I found this today and immediately thought of this thread and my "debate" with No Surprise.
"If the perfection of generosity were the alleviation of the world's poverty, Then since beings are still starving now In what manner did the previous Buddhas perfect it? The perfection of generosity is said to be The thought to give all beings everything, Together with the fruit of such a thought. Hence it is simply a state of mind.
- Santideva, "Bodhicaryavatara"
Very much a mahayana line of thought.

Did your wife change yet?
