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 .

Wrong, it was based on scientific evidence. You are scared, you are in fight or flight mode.

Exactly, you are a liar and won't admit it.

I'm mature enough to admit when I'm wrong and admit when I was mistaken.
You, on the other hand, will ride your lies to the grave.

Do you agree with gay people being able to marry? If so, you are not a bigot. If not, you are a bigot.
It's as simple as that.

You are a homophobic person. You are showing an aversion to homosexual people right now by trying to claim, against reality, that they suffer from a mental illness.

Once again, homosexuality does not fit the requirements needed to be classified as a mental illness.
You know what does though?
A belief in a god.
Though so many people do believe in a god, so to have medical experts claim this would be to commit suicide.

Of course a lying homophobe like him will claim homosexuality is a mental illness.
Though to claim that, he would have to place heterosexuality in the same boat, for you cannot criticize one and not the other.

You fail at both logic and science.
Your first failure lies in the assumption that opposite sex attraction must of necessity develop the same way as same sex attraction does.
Your second failure lies in the assumption that, since same sex attraction is resistent to change it must therefore be biologically determined ("born that way").
If you bothered to look objectively you would know that Most informed discussions on human sexuality involve a bio psychosocial model in which many factors are thought to play a part in the outcome.
So whilst it would be true to say that prevailing scientific theories have it that heterosexual attraction develops largely along a biologically determined pathway, it does not follow that disturbances in natural sexual development, such as same sex attraction, must of necessity develop along the same (biological) pathway. Indeed there is evidence to suggest that same sex attraction is largely psychological, at least in some.
Finally, same sex attraction is not the only mental illness which is resistant to change and can be found along side other comorbid psychopathology such as personality disorders, drug addictions, suicidal ideation and the list goes on.
Mental illness? I don't think that hetrosexuality is a mental illness. How is it one

Sexuality isn't a choice. Religion is, but not sexuality. And god has no dislike against homo, pan and bi-sexuals.

e.
I've been considering your arguments and conceded that referring to same sex attraction as a mental illness is not strictly accurate in the context of it being defined by majority vote in committees of various health organisations.

Mental dysfunction is more accurate.

Now please explain how, use sources to back you up, and give sources to established medical professionals and established psychiatrists that say so.

You won't be able to provide anything but articles from hate groups like the AFA or articles from a proven lying site like WND.

I don't care if you can't admit you're a liar. You still are, and your reluctance to admit it simply deepens that hole of lies. By your logic, heterosexuality is also a "mental dysfunction."

The fact that there are certain criteria to be named "[insert term here]."
To make a claim that homosexuality is a mental illness or dysfunction, you must disregard all scientific evidence and what mental illnesses/dysfunctions are.
Though that claim would still be false.
If respecting the criteria, you would not be able to make your claim truthfully.

Dumpling, your "expertise" in this area is close to 60 years out of date, it's been proved time and time again that being homosexual is no more a mental dysfunction or disorder than heterosexuality, except in your case where your heterosexuality is obviously a learning disorder.

you're poorly misinformed and choose to remain so. that is your choice. and you're entitled to your opinion. but just so we're clear here - you're merely an internet stranger with no credibility or credentials.
that's merely a statement of fact, not a personal affront to you. i just want those that are skimming through this thread to understand the difference between personal opinions of strangers here on the internet and those of educated, trained and licensed professionals that have released their statements as a group in regards to homosexuality.

Then treat us with the same respect you'd treat any other disabled person with.

But you don't.

Still no wiggle room on Matthew 25:31-46!

BTW how come some christian websites are censoring dissent now?

Two days ago I signed up for membership on the New Republic website and was accepted. I then posted a response pointing out the errors in their anti gay stance and unchristian like behavior based on 103 Bible verses on Obeying Authority
http://www.openbible.info/topics/obeying_auth ...

today I just found my privileges on their site have been revoked.

Color me not surprised!

great post. Now can you show me the Bible verses that give you a get out of jail free card for they way you treat people like me (gays and lesbians) when it comes to Luke 10:25-37 (The parable of the good Samaritan) and Matt. 25-31-46 (The goats and the sheep)?

Folks like you have been thumping Bibles on my head for 50 years. So for spiritual and emotional defense I learned your rules and how to use them with you.

"Going to church doesn't make you any more a christian than going to a garage makes you a car. Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does.

Your words mean nothing if your actions are the complete opposite. Having true faith in whatever you believe must be shown through actions; belief is only half the battle.

Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and your faith stronger than your feelings."
