LOL Maybe you should have mommy proof read for you, unless you're changing your point of view. Homosexuality is natural, so I don't need to prove anything. Look around you thousands of species engage in it. Christian eh? talking snakes and the whole bit. Oh well whatever, don't force it on others or judge people by some weird self righteous morality and you'll make them pearly gates pappy. BTW I'm not black, so you're not insulting me with the term BOY, nor am I that young.
Such confidence! You come across a naive young man! Species engage in it because of homosexuality spreading to the animals. You may not be THAT young, but I know you are young!

Wheres your proof? An experiment has been conducted where people had to determine whether someone was straight or gay simply by judging their faces. The people in the test were right about male homosexuals, but not always so for females for some reason. The gays in question on the photographs in the test had effeminate faces, which is due to emotional repression, therefore having expressions resembling that of womens expressions, and therefore their expressions changing their faces appearance.
This fails to provide any evidence to support your claim.

Again, decades of research and clinical experience has led all mainstream medical and mental health organizations in the country to agree gay people represent normal forms of human experience. "Lesbian, gay, and bisexual relationships are normal forms of human bonding." (APA)

Wow! Spreading to the animals?

Gay people have been around since cave man days. If it was something that could be spread, wouldn't every animal and person be gay by now?

I guess that could help explain your irrational fear. However, it remains irrational as well as unsupportable.

I think its great and about time as the LGBT community is apart of American history. Now I believe it is also time to start teaching about the history of religion and all the crimes against humanity religion is and has been responsible for. Then just maybe we can have children growing up knowing the difference between hate and love.
Go ahead violate children's first amendment rights- the parents can bring the worthless schools to their knees. The teachers will start having to kiss arse when the lawsuits are filed.

Pejorative terminology and ad hominem attacks fail to refute the information presented. They do however, indicate you have nothing beyond irrational prejudice to support your claims.

Being gay is a natural expression of the human condition for a minority of the population, and every mainstream medical and mental health organization in the US support that finding, based on decades of research and clinical experience.

“Gay marriage would be a victory for the worthy ideas of tolerance and inclusion. It would likely decrease the number of those in society who tend to be viewed warily as ‘other’ and increase the number who are accepted as part of ‘us.’ In that respect, gay marriage would be a victory for, and another key expansion of, the American idea.”

This quote is from the conservative, anti-marriage equality director of the Institute for American Values David Blankenhorn, one of the few witnesses who testified in support of Prop 8.

So why are you broadcasting from the UK? Actually, I didn't see any lies. What I did see, was unsubstantiated idiotic statements about gay people. Have you looked in the mirror lately to see if someone might think you're effeminate? Or maybe the two male birds in the backyard are f(_)cking each other..Hum?

Here are more trial quotes, this time from the Hawaii trial. Remember, these are from witnesses who opposed marriage equality, yet even they had to admit, there is no valid reason to do so.

" Dr Eggebeen (witness against marriage equality) also conceded that "gay and lesbian couples can , and do, make excellent parents" "that they are capable of raising a healthy child", and "that children of same sex couples would be helped if their families had access to or were able to receive benefits of marriage".

Dr. Charlotte Patterson: there was "no data or research which establishes that gay fathers and lesbian mothers are less capable of being good parents than non-gay people.

Dr. David Brodzinsky: The issue is not the structural variable, biological versus nonbiological, one parent versus two parent. The issue is really the process variables, how children are cared for, is the child provided warmth, it the child provided consistency of care, is the child provided a stimulated environment, is the e child given support.... and when you take a look at structural variables, there's not all that much support that structural variable in and of themselves are all that important.

Dr. Pepper Shwartz: "the primary quality of parenting is not the parenting structure, or biology, but is the nurturing relationship between parent and child."

Homosexuality is based on the brains reaction on how well it perceives the person able to produce good offspring. Gays can't reproduce with the same sex, so this would make same sex attraction a biological error.
This is nonsense. And it's certainly not "proof" that homosexuality is "unnatural" or a "biological error."

No reputable or peer-reviewed scientific study concludes that homosexuality is "unnatural." No major medical, scientific, psychological, psychiatric, or social science professional organization agrees that homosexuality is a "biological error."

Only anti-gay idiots like you who don't know the first thing about science make such ridiculous claims.

No proof exists to prove it is natural. Homosexuality is unnatural.

When schools talk about religion they open themselves up to lawsuits- because Stupid POS asstrolls like you forget the first amendment also protects the free exercise of religion. As for kids mine will be much better then yours- AWIPE.

Homosexuality is evil, God is good. Homosexuals hate good, because they are evil, so they hate God.

My original statement stands...It's also for the freedom FROM religion, NOT designating any particular religion. Keep your f(_)cking voodoo out of the schools! Unfortunately, looks like your kids are going to be even bigger morons. Dumbf(_)ck!
