Someone should knock on the popes bubble and
tell him that it's not just Spain that is
anti-Catholic, it's the world.

Something about the legal raping of children
by priests that just seems to turn people
off. Go figure.

Marrying who you want, no matter their gender
Ending an unwanted pregnancy
And getting out of a bad Marriage

ARE ALL WRONG!

But molesting little kids is ok.-Pope

Gotta love religion.

But what is wrong with this model?

1. Finding a compatible partner of the opposite sex or living a single, but fulfilling life, with lots of friends.

2. Doing what it takes to avoid unwanted pregnancies, including avoiding sex and punishing rapists harder.

3. Not getting into a bad marriage to begin with, or being man-enough or woman-enough to work it out or man-enough/woman-enough to live with the mistake you made. Disobeying parents is an almost sure way to fall into this trap, since then you marry whoever out of spite and reap whatever consequences.

4. Not molesting anyone nor sexually assaulting them, regardless of age.

That is a foolish model, because it means that EVERY SINGLE GAY Person would be denied any sort of romantic relationship, and the support and blessings of forming a family.

Do you think that every single straight person in the country would agree to live such a sterile lifestyle? If you would not accept it as a model for yourself, and every one you know, then demanding it for gay people is simply rediculous, and you know it.

Gay is not inherent, but something optional and chosen. ALL persons are born to be heterosexual or asexual, but rebellion and exposure to mass media causes some to be selfish and want something "more" or "better." Unlike heterosexuality and asexuality which are purely biological, homosexuality is purely man-made and a social construct.

Romantic relationships are entirely unnecessary in and of themselves. Nobody will die or be harmed without one. Those are optional and not required. Every person requires social contact, and that doesn't require romantic "love." Most who choose same-sex "love" do so because they have difficulty being in friendships that don't revolve around sex. Too many "gay" folks are too immature to be capable of loving the opposite sex. Any dumbass can love someone just like themselves, but a mature person can love those who are unlike themselves.

Those who are asexual do not feel robbed of a family. To them, their friends ARE their family, so to say they are robbed is to say that friends are nothing. And there are couples who have very little, if any sex, and don't feel robbed, just not interested. I have lived the lifestyle I proscribed, and I feel pure and clean, not deprived or repressed. I guess by your definition, those who don't rob or rape are also repressed.

Quite a few bisexuals say that gay persons and straight persons are broken, saying that we were all designed for both types of sex and that denying either type is a type of repression.

Lets not forget that heterosexuals celebrate diversity in their relationships, while homosexuals celebrate sexism and discrimination. Inherent to homosexuality is the belief that women are inferior and worthless as sexual partners. And yes, malignant heterosexuality reduces women to only that, which is also wrong.

Denying someone "gay" what they pretend is a romantic relationship is no different than denying a pedophile or bestiophile what they pretend is a valid romantic relationship. While heterosexuals can also be perverts, sexual perversion is inherent to the social construct of homosexuality.

Saying animals do it too is a poor excuse, since we throw humans that behave as animals in prison. That is where we put animals, in cages. Animals also rape (required for cats to ovulate), kill, eat their babies, eat their own kind, hump anything, go around nude, eat feces, roll around in feces, and urinate/defecate in the food of others. Still want to be like animals?

Spelling out the good individual gays have done says little, since most mass murderers and genocidal dictators made great paintings and useful inventions. Even big polluting oil companies have contributed to education and innovation. There was a rapist who worked at a rape crisis center.

Saying it is inborn is a poor excuse, since people are also born retarded, autistic, and blind, and a study says that up to 70% of all alcoholics and drug addicts were born with a genetic variation in their dopamine receptors. A common model of left-handedness is that of left-brain damage during childbirth. So even though there is nothing wrong with left-handedness in itself, it can be connected to brain damage, learning disabilities, and serious health problems. We don't praise people for being left-handed, so don't praise them for choosing same-sex mating behavior. Left-handedness is not the norm, nor is it something to bash. It just is.

Sexuality is born, not breed or choosen. You are born either gay or straight. Science has already proven that.

Since we are talking about Catholics, birth control is a 'sin' in their religion, condoms, pills, and IUD's. Just because you say punish rapists harder, doesnt mean it wil stop rapist from commiting the crime.

Every marriage, doesnt start bad, some just end up that way. Your 'dont get into a bad relationship' theory is flawed. Not ever bad relationship is out of spite to the parents. Also once a person is 18 they are an adult, parents play NO ROLE what-so-ever. They can only hope for the best.

Finally, ever 'arguement' you posed, is based on religion. Religion is VERY flawed, and also not everyone believes how you do. Some religion believes in multiple wives, some believe in no form of birth control, some believe in rubbing a statues belly. Keep thumping that book.
