I personally think that the statistics are a bit skewed.
What do we call a father that rapes his own children? What do we accuse them of?
Normally we would refer to these fathers as one who commits incest. Sometimes we refer to them as child rapists.
Why don't we use the term "pedophiles" to describe them?
I also think that we confuse our definitions.
Homosexuals - sex with same gender
Heterosexuals - sex with the opposite gender
Pedophile - sex with children
According to the Kinsey Study, more than 10% of men are homosexual.

Prejudice against homosexuality is unjustified, so causality doesn't matter.
Even so, there are several reasons to reject the stupid idea that sexual orientation is a choice. I've tried helping RR understand, but so far, I have been unsuccessful.
umm....hey dumb dumb - what we do with our reproductive organs, rectums and stuff is ABSOLUTELY our individual choice; there's no debating it.

if you want to talk about attractions, that's a whole other topic, but none-the-less it's akin to the topic of our personal responsibilities with our body. i.e., if a person acts upon their attraction to their neighbor's wife, we call that ADULTERY. similarly, if a person acts upon their attraction to a person of the same sex, we call that HOMOSEXUALITY.

WHERE THE F IS THE DIFFERENCE IN PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY?

if you're attracted to candy bars, chips, donuts...etc, without any self-restraint/discipline and you become a fat pig; WHO THE F's fault is that gonna be???

Seems the Bible disagrees with you. You should read it sometime.
You're comparing different laws from different cultures in different regions at different times.

Lets compare the laws of China in 320 AD to the laws of England today, shall we?

I've never seen anything from NAMBLA. That's not to say the organization doesn't exist.
I've lived in 10 states in the U.S, and visited others, so what I'm saying is that doesn't compare to the doctrines that religions attempt to spread.
Oh, ok. I understand. Honestly, I've never them then in action, either. Just online.

You're right, it doesn't compare.

Christians don't go around spreading pedophelia around the country.....
I don't eat at McDonalds.
That stuff is bad.
I do, but only once or twice a year. And every time I regret it.

But is never try to force anyone else to not go because I think it's awful food NOR would I attempt to make them change their menu.

It's only a big deal if you care what is actually true.
At what time in your life was the choice of being either straight or gay equally accessible to you, and what made you choose to be straight?
When I knew I liked bewbies instead of hunky chests, I knew I was straight.
Did you do a costs/benefits analysis?


Does anyone?
Were you in a position where both a boy and a girl asked you out on the same day, and you had to make a quick decision?
Yes, actually. I was in a bar, playing darts with some dude, who I later found out was gay. He asked me for my number and I said no. Later that night I met a broad, got her number & we met up later.
Did someone assume you were straight, and you were too shy to correct them?
Would would I correct someone for being correct?!
Did you try being gay for just a few months to make a truly informed decision?
It's crossed my mind, as I'm sure it has everyone. Anyone telling you it hasn't is probably lying.
Did you flip a coin?
No. That wouldn't make it an informed decision now would it?
I need to know if just accepting my feelings was the right thing to do.
I've learned to trust my gut instinct, it's never steered me wrong.

Can Double Fine just throw his hat in the ring.

Double Fine understands that the Supreme Court ended some same-sex marriage ban. Good on them. The only thing Double Fine bas against this ruling, is why did they have to wait until 2013 to make it. It should have been a done and dusted issue long ago.

Tax exempt status of churches? Double Fine would go along with that, but as soon as the church sees fit to comment about matters of state, propagandise a candidate, or make any comments detremental to mainstream science, it should lose that exempt status. Showing a Kent Hovind video or someting to that effect, would fall under the latter.

To the genuinely good Christians on here such as Epi and Whispers, Double Fine is happy that you find solace and peace and hope for it to continue.

Then having Clementia as dictator? Anytime. Double Fine would offer his services as late night companion.

Lastly, Double Fine wants to know if the hot tub is still open? Double Fine would sit between HL and River Tam.

Happy Friday, all.

Double Fine salutes you all

Were you a pastor’s son ?
That is the 'take' on 'man made religions' which branch off from all truth into their own egotistical units, and call their own shots as power while not practising true Christianity at all. Man took the True God Love out and put the doctrines in, which in the end only clashed, and have been ever since.

I am an optimistic scientist - but with a difference - and time will tell just where that difference is.
<quoted text>
All generations have been entering their new ages, and all roll on into the next. It will be the staying power of anything that will prove the most beneficial. So we'll see that one! But none will survive through warring over belief systems. If Christianity is really helping those who are down-trodden, isn't that better than nothing to lift them out of where they are 'mentally' before they can be physically... surely that harms no-one. We tend to make our own choice when it come to beliefs of this nature, and all children also grow up to do the same.

lol ja no fine! It's been my job for so long... and I don't think fighting apartheid in South Africa cared about Christian with the name. Tho the 'Dutch Reformed' professed it, few all over the world have practised it in the war zones of color or race.
<quoted text>
No Mark... I feel for anyone, but emotions have to be put aside when it comes to real peace. So I'm not taking it too hard – lol – I'm just a sheep dog! It would be a compliment if I had a herd, but heaven knows who they are, not me. What is refreshing in here is simply peace in discussion and not a cut-throat attitude. What is read in here between literal bullets of crap like I've never seen - even the streets of the homeless in Africa had more self respect - but a pw doesn’t usually go where everything is hunky dory, ja?
… and I will always care for the underdog, Tho it makes no difference if I dine with presidents or the pope, in here, is another story.

Sorry to hear about Ish-i's Mother....I know how he is feeling ...

Nelson Mandela will be 95 in July....He has seen ALOT of changes (Fighting and Peace) in his life.....Hasn't he?

On another note...Its always nice when people can post to each other and NOT put an insult at the end of it on here.....

Love and Blessings...

Homosexuality is the orientation.

Sexual acts between persons of the same gender are usually referred to as Same Sex Sexual Behavior or Same Sex Sexual Activity or Same Sex Sexual Relations or something similar.

Do you think it's a moral issue? I don't.

That's absurd. That's like saying if you wanna define the word "many", we need to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica...
