I just pointed out how your "classic morality" is ridiculous. There is no universal "classic morality". Some cultures stone a woman for being raped. These same cultures allow adult men to marry little girls as young as 8 years old. Our own culture expresses morals and values that are diametrically opposed to one another.
You seem to think that all of humankind lives by a basic set of tenets. And that's just stupid.
Oh, you are going to dumb down on stupid.

With an example of marrying an eight year old.

That in fact just happened in Yemen. The girl died on her 'wedding' night. They arrested the 'groom'.

Nor do I 'seem to think' any such thing. I accurately noted there is classic morality.

You are a idiot in gay denial. Can't get any worse than that!

.
So, you are saying that "classic morality" includes things like monogamy, marriage, no divorce, etc.

But, you believe that that such classic morality is just not for ANY gay folks, who,despite being raised by their parents to value such things, should live by a separate "classic morality, that includes secrecy, lots of irresponsible sex, shacking up, and general overall societal disapproval?

And you expect gay folks to buy into your crap? Simply because you say so?

Prepare for lifelong disappointment.

No you stand for stamping out dissent of those who disagree with your anti freedom of speech, androgynous concept of "equality", and calling redefining marriage, "justice".

I didn't dictate classic morality. Nor did any one religion.

It is far more basic than those things.

Honesty and responsibility would cover most of what I am saying.

If I birth a child, I take care of that child.

If I make the marriage vow, I keep the marriage vow.

If I don't qualify for marriage, I don't manipulate a fraudulent fake.

If I have a sexual disorder, I face it honestly, and certainly don't demand that others deny it with me.

What would happen if GLBT's admitted with honesty and responsibility that they represent a confused crossover point of gender and sexuality?

I do nothing more than point out reality. And look at your hate. Do you ever stop and think about that?

Point is there is nothing wrong with same sex people. Only your hate and bigotry makes you see it that way.

Glad you old bigots are a dying breed. Most people under age 40 have no problem with same sex people...Your time is almost up your hate dies with your kind.

To paraphrase William F. Buckley, libtards claim to be the champions of diverse points of view, but are actually shocked and driven to mindless adolescent rage when they discover that there truly are other points of view.

I accept all points of view...But the far rights point of view cant be law because it attacks the Constitutional rights of people.

You can hate and be bigoted to anyone you want...JUST CANT ATTACK THEM OR STOMP ON THERE RIGHTS..

And that's the same as using animals to test how something will affect humans.
You've been warned in the past about spouting stupid comments before doing the slightest bit of thinking. In fact, I did just warn you! Some day you'll learn.
No, moron, we study animals to understand human behavior--not to justify it. Where do you come up with this shit? Oh, I forgot... You like to make up your own "facts" as you go along.

Bottom line (and I know just how much you like bottoms), scientists study the behavior of animals in order to help understand human behavior.

Sometimes I wonder about the college you went to. Did you actually go to college? Or are you one of those "ministers" who got his degree from the back of a comic book?

You are no longer qualified to be married based on your own definitions. You are currently in a "mutually sterile, pointlessly opposite gendered half of marriage".

Bottom line , scientists study the behavior of animals in order to help understand human behavior.

Animal studies is a recently recognized field in which animals are studied in a variety of cross-disciplinary ways. Scholars who engage in animal studies may be formally trained in a number of diverse fields, including art history, anthropology, biology, film studies, geography, history, psychology, literary studies, museology, philosophy, and sociology. They may engage with questions about literal animals, or about notions of "animality" or "brutality," employing various theoretical perspectives, including feminism, marxist theory, and queer theory. Using these perspectives, those who engage in animal studies seek to understand both human-animal relations now and in the past, and to understand animals as beings-in-themselves, separate from our knowledge of them. Because the field is still developing, scholars and others have some freedom to define their own criteria about what issues may structure for the field.

Another Activist Judge going against the will of the people and the majority making law from the bench rather then enforcing it. Denying the citizens that voted for the law their rights to please a few activists factions
