STUDY: Homophobes Terrified You'll Make a Pass at Them

The reason behind prejudices such as racism and homophobia have been contributed to a wide range of factors, but a new study suggests that the root of sexual prejudice is directly related to the fear some people have of unwanted sexual advances by someone of the same gender, reports the Huffington Post .

I have read it, and it says nothing about "as consequences," idiot. Read it, all of it, you claim to worship this book of myths. But that's the thing, if everyone actually read it, most christians would stop being christians.

i never refuted your evidence, merely stated that it was consistent with a biopsychosocial model. it is u who failed to refute my position.
Acually, you didn't respond at all.
That also is not a valid argument, for you have to first prove that there IS a BPS model to follow.

You admitted you lied when you refused to present your proof AND you lied just now, claiming that your claim is valid when you have yet to demonstrate how.

Being gay was not the sin. Harmless God-given natural traits cannot be sin.

Typical little hypocrite, ONLY picks and chooses what appeals to him. Hey, Cletus, you ain't at Home Town Buffet, where you can load up on fried chicken instead of liver and onions, you're talking about the ENTIRE bible.

Oh, what's the use? If that there preacher man don't chew it up and pre-digest it and spit it into your open little beak, you don't know Shiite about the REAL bible, do you?

Why do you think Jesus hung with 12 hot guys? And you note that he was identified by being kissed, I am sure that was not the FIRST time that happened.

All the "true" paintings, from life, of Jesus show that he had KILLER abs, probably a swimmer from his sleek build.

I provided the evidence for the BPS model by way of link and copied abstract.

I also responded to your post claiming same sex attraction to be innate by agreeing with you that there is some evidence to suggest a biological involvement and that this evidence is also consistent with a BPS model.

There is no proof as such either way. Neither you nor I can "prove" our positions on the matter.

Therefore, calling me a liar does not prove your position, it simply reflects your own issues. Projection, in other words.

You lie to yourself.

I have read the Bible. The Bible describes homosexuality as neither God-given nor natural. Quite the opposite in fact.

But then you know that.

You forgot to mention that it was a link to the abstract of an article written in 1993, when for you at least, reality stopped.

Maybe I should have said its my business instead of choice. I guess choice was used for the lack of a better word. But I have tendencies and I choose not to go with them most of the time lmao but that's me everyone is different and that the main point I was trying to make.

Actually, you made a positive claim that homosexuality was a choice, and so by failing to prove your claim, you are lying.

Link this supposed link again, for maybe you think you posted it, but I can't find it.

Oh wait, THAT'S what he's talking about?
That's a 20 year old link which my evidence for sexual orientation being innate trumps easily!

you forgot to mention any studies since to refute the article, or do you also reject the theory of evolution because it was published back in 1859?

I posted my reply to your evidence here:-
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/gay/TNCIBESHV...

So then, since you insisted on calling me a liar until I provided my link, so then please provide the link where I made a positive claim that same sex attraction is a choice or otherwise admit that you are a liar.

Red herring. Science is always advancing, always improving, genetics, with the assistance of the theory of evolution, has come a long way and discovered that sexuality is a genetically driven trait. While there can be personality factors, the basis for all sexual attraction is genetic. Face it, your religious superstition is not reality.

The last line of the abstract he posted said something to the effect that their study reflected the best understanding of it at the time. You click on the link and that time was 1993. I tried for several posts to convince him that our best understanding of it probably didn't end 20 years ago, but you know how he can be.

Here I thought you would have jumped at the opportunity to prove me wrong and come armed and ready with evidence that the understanding of the causality remains essentially unchanged since 1993, but none yet. I don't wonder why you haven't.

Darwin had the first word on his subject, the last hasn't been had yet, we're still learning. Sound familiar? Don't you just hate it when your examples come back to bite you?
