Sweetie, it might help if you had actually paid attention in History. The Christians were at the wheel of Rome from Constantin's conversion in the 4th century onward, it had already become one of the most practiced religions in the Empire by the end of the 3rd and its followers were far from without power even before they had a Christian as Emperor. If Rome's "morals" were declining, it was the "morals" of Roman Christians being flushed.

What social constructs and what do such constructs contribute. May I remind you that not long ago, women were not allowed to vote or hold public office. Was that good for society? Not long ago slavery was condoned. Was that good for society? Not long ago segregation was legal. Was that good for society?

What is wrong with accepting and embracing your gay and lesbian brothers and sisters? You painted a broad picture which included such social constructs once considered beneficial. Therefore we were discussing social constructs were we not?

GIANT FAIL.

Pudding, the acceptance of homosexual sexual behaviors as morally inoffensive to Roman religious belief, social life and civil stability, ended with the supremacy of the Christian belief that THE God wasn't the least bit cool with it. The Christian rejecters of the homosexual had long since prevailed when the place finally flushed. Like I said, you should have paid better attention when you were taught history.

Yet it is going to be a "fairy tale and a fantasy" that you vile hypocrite Christian conservatives are going to see.

The real fairy tale is that Christian conservatives have anything at all to do with God.

I can find no fault in being homosexual or that it caused any society to be destroyed. I see no evidence to support either claim.

Romans "accepted" Christianity when Constantine opened the door, starting in 325 a.d. and by the time he passed the empire onto his sons, the church had stripped away much of the power from the emperors for themselves, and the empire collapsed within 50 years after a thousand years of no one have any problems with homosexuals.
