Your theory has no scientific support, and fails to explain all of the 1500 species where same sex coupling is observed.

In some species, two males are better at defending the offspring when they take turns searching for food. Sometimes two females do better, depending on the species. With over 1500 species involved, there are many different scenarios.

Yea, I know..it's a waste of my time to even try. Most of the bigots on here are misinformed by mommy, TV and what they 'think' Jesus wants them to do...Sad isn't it?
Sad indeed. It would be laughable if not for the fact the prejudice they promote causes needless suffering and death, here and around the world.

Yet many, even those with extreme prejudice, have been able to overcome it, demonstrating it can be done. The nearly impossible task is determining who can and who cannot. Here is just one of many examples:

"Several books already exist attempting to demonstrate that the Christian Bible does not, in fact, condemn consenting-adult homosexuality. But "God is Not a Homophobe" has a unique perspective in that the author has a lifetime of experience in pastoring hard-core fundamentalist churches. His former bitter opposition to all forms of homosexuality has given way to a rational, unbiased acceptance that the Bible says hardly anything about homosexuality, and what it does say cannot honestly be used to condemn consenting same-sex unions." "God is not a Homophobe: An unbiased look at Homosexuality in the Bible" by Philo Thelos

It is your prejudice that is irrational.

You provide no legitimate governmental interest sufficient to justify refusing to treat others as you would yourself under the law.

And just because you don't care we have something very special to tell you: Your churches are dying a fairly rapid death. The number of 30 to 50 year olds regularly attending church is down by huge percentages and the number of 15 to 30 year olds is dropping like a rock. Within ten years hundreds of churches will have failed to keep sufficient membership to function and by mid-century more than half of them will be gone.

The hatred you and others so willingly exhibit on here and is all too commonly coming from your priests and ministers as well. It's your own doing and you'll pay the price for it. Sleep in the bed you made.

I think you just wrote a Saturday Night Live skit.

You really, really, really have absolutely no grasp of reality or any form of science.

2 male are better at defending and eating it all for themselves! And homosexuals had plenty of time to spread it to 1500 species!

Read Romans fool! God said any man who sleeps with a man as if it was a women is an abomination and should be put to death in the law of God! It also says homosexuals will not enter heaven in Romans, and have been given over to vile affections!

I've got a Pet Rock that's smarter than you.

You're just sputtering gibberish. I'd rather talk to a door knob and my time would have been better spent.

Besides, I've got to get to Squirrel University to teach my How to be a homosexual" class. They pay me with nuts.

No, you have already been taught to be a homosexual! If you were in Gods house, the pastor would have told you that you have been taught to go to hell, and he would have been right!

You still fail to demonstrate the mode and motivation for transmission, even if that was possible. But it is not. It occurs naturally. Denial of the evidence also fails to qualify as a valid argument.

As Tom points out, this works best as a comedy skit, not a rational argument.

You demonstrate the problem with using your modern English mistranslation and misinterpretation of ancient texts to justify ignoring the Golden Rule, and instead, causing needless suffering and death.

Romans was about pagan ritual orgies with temple prostitutes. While common at the time, most people today don't even consider that as an option for worship services. But at that time and place, it was the thing to do. It was expected.

Following quote from "What the Bible Says - And Doesn't Say - About Homosexuality" by Rev. Dr. Mel White:
"Paul is writing this letter to Rome after his missionary tour of the Mediterranean. On his journey Paul had seen great temples built to honor Aphrodite, Diana, and other fertility gods and goddesses of sex and passion instead of the one true God the apostle honors. Apparently, these priests and priestesses engaged in some odd sexual behaviors -- including castrating themselves, carrying on drunken sexual orgies, and even having sex with young temple prostitutes (male and female)-- all to honor the gods of sex and pleasure.

You'll also note that Romans 2 begins with "Therefore,[referring to Romans 1], you have no excuse, whoever you are, when you judge others; for in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself..." Even after he describes the disturbing practices he has seen, Paul warns us that judging others is God's business, not ours."

Isolating cows and leaving them on their own, with other cows with rising hormones! Sexual confusion and a lack of understanding of themselves! Yes, of course this sounds more like the human phase teenagers go through, but no one said cows can't be teenagers, although I'm sure they go through a considerably more simplified version.

You have been taught an irrational but harmful prejudice based on nothing more than a few misunderstood ancient texts, and a fear of people you don't understand.

There is a significant and growing consensus among biblical scholars about the few biblical texts that are often referenced as the basis for condemning same-gender loving people of God. Contemporary biblical scholarship argues strongly against this condemnation and finds a much more significant Gospel message that supports the inclusion of LGBT persons into the full life and mission of the church.(United Church of Christ.)

Again, several books have been written showing the few verses you use to justify causing needless suffering and death, have been mistranslated and misinterpreted. Your your decision to use them to judge and harm is not supported by the original scriptures.

Did the bible say that was the reason why? No it didn't, otherwise it would have said..

Disturbing sexual practices. Sounds a lot like homosexual anal sex to me.

Many heterosexuals have anal sex. Is that also considered disturbing as well by your standards?

Many heterosexuals have their bag of toys. Is that too considered to be disturbing? You seem to have quite the imagination for the homosexual bed room. Is it just as imaginative for the heterosexuals with the bag of toys?

I think both sides present a valid point of view, I do not agree sex needs to be thrown into the discussion.
