Read it and weep, you bigoted piece of crap:<quoted text>You are lying. Homosexuality does not exist in any species, even humans.
"Homosexuality is biologically natural, not deviant"
From a scientific perspective, all homosexual behavior is biological. Thats a truism, of course. Same-sex attraction, like all behaviors and cognition, requires a functioning nervous system. There are no homosexual umbrellas. Furthermore, much but not all same-same sex attraction is probably based in genetics or epigenetics, with predispositions established before birth.
Far from being a sin against nature, homosexuality is more natural than the sexual abstinence imposed by many human cultures, and more natural than their many artifacts.
Homosexuality is not a new normal. Its an old one.
Homosexual behavior is ubiquitous throughout the animal kingdom. It occurs in numerous species from worms to primates, including the Utah state bird, the seagull. Bonobos (previously called pygmy chimpanzees) are one of humans closest cousins, sharing nearly 99 percent of our DNA. Nearly all bonobos are bisexual, and some engage in homosexual behavior almost hourly.
It seems unlikely thats the result of a bonobo ACLU, or a bonobo militant homosexual agenda.
So, new rule: Folks cant rightly complain against unnatural homosexual behaviors unless they themselves are living outdoors 24-7-365 and walking around buck naked.
Legally, such natural homosexual behaviors in animals were noted as part of the defense in Lawrence v. Texas. Thats the Supreme Court case that struck down the Texas law banning gay sex.
By extension, the ruling also effectively invalidated anti-sodomy laws in other states, including Utah. Not surprisingly, but incorrectly, Utah had advised the Court that sex between homosexuals was harmful in ways that the identical sexual behavior between heterosexuals was not.
Negating popular misperceptions, the U.S. Supreme Court further noted that,[f]ar from possessing ancient roots,... American laws targeting same-sex couples did not develop until the last third of the 20th century.
And, poignantly,this Courts obligation is to define the liberty of all, not to mandate its own moral code.
In considering gay marriage, lets remember that interracial marriage also was once considered unnatural, and was illegal in Utah until 1963.
And it was the US Supreme Court that finally overruled state laws on interracial marriage, too, in 1967. A time that seems so long ago to those who did not experience that era. They almost cannot imagine such an attitude, never mind such a law.
I dont know of any same-race marriages that fell apart because of my mixed-race marriage. And I dont reckon any mixed-sex marriages will fall apart because of others same-sex marriages either.
The center moves. Slowly, sometimes. But it does move. What was once unimaginable becomes commonplace. And what was commonplace becomes unimaginable.
And, now, this Tuesday and Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to take the next step: to consider whether gays, too, will be allowed marriage equality throughout the land.
But at an even deeper level, equal rights for homosexuals dont depend on the genetic and biological mechanisms underlying sexualityany more than do equal rights for heterosexuals. Or equal rights for people of different races.
Gay rights are not special rights. They are human rights.
Gay rights are not now being granted. Instead, they are no longer or should no longer be being taken away.
Homosexuals are humans. So, naturally, they deserve all the same human rights that heterosexuals do, including the rights to employment, housing, marriage, hospital visits, and inheritance. Without discrimination.
