It is you anti-gay gays who believe you can pray away the gay who have the thin skins. Homosexuals because of the bigotry they face each day have and need to have the thickest skin around.

Are you in Exodus or one of the other anti-gay self loathing groups that exist for the purpose of driving homosexuals insane? Which one are you a member of?

kkkrist-insanity is NOT the answer; it is an abomination and it is a crime against humanity.

We need to be very clear that these bigots are CHRISTIAN bigots. They were not born bigots they learned it in Sunday School.

Quite, quite right Reverend .. As children we are empty vessels into which is poured either the good or the bad .. It then lingers there for as long as we live ..

Sunday School NEVER teaches bigotry. You are a liar, who has never been to Sunday School to make such a false statement. Sunday School teaches the tenets of Christianity, which are long suffering, forbearance and charity. The choice to be a homosexual involves the rejection of self-control, which is the basis of a peaceful society. Thus, homosexuals invite anarchy.

I'm a gay man. I have 4 straight sister and a straight brother. And of course heteosexual parents.

And I have asked each of them when they chose to be hetero. Of course they all said they never chose they just were.

Same with every other person I've asked that question of.

Not once has anyone ever been able to tell me how old they were when they decided what got them hot and what didn't.

So when I hear someone claim "It's a choice" I have to wonder just how hetero they really are.

The only people I know who make a choice over what (man/woman) turns them on more are bisexuals.

Firstly, homosexuals are cowards, who at a certain point in their lives opted for recognition by embracing behaviors guaranteed to shock those around them. A comedian will hone certain behavior to get desired responses from their audience. Any human moving to maturity will do the same. Homosexuals and other mentally ill people will embrace behaviors at the very edge of human capabilities, which would not in and of itself be negative, except for the disease, early death and outrageous predatory needs historically associated to homosexual behavior. As with any self-validating mental illness, they focus on feedback offering them the most approval for their weakness and cowardice in finding the necessary character to have a relationship with the opposite sex. The only relationship they can have is in mimicking their behavior. Nothing could be more obvious as a maladjustment. The most enured homosexual will continue to assert genetic elements making them the way they are, but the most advanced genetic research redundantly shows there is no genetic link. They assert such falsehoods just as any mental patient will assert delusional perceptions of their actual state. While a certain degree of sympathy for such diseased mental states is humane, the mentally deficient will usually attempt to disadvantage that sympathy to their own selfish ends. In the homosexual, other mentally ill and criminal minds, this constant play on sympathy is usually a behavior cemented in family relationships with their co-dependent tendencies.

Cowardice at such a core level of character, once validated, is one of the most destructive elements in a society. Add drugs common to the homosexual lifestyle and resistance to healing is almost insurmountable. Nonetheless, such negative and destructive societal behavior should be controlled by making the behavior severely punishable by law. Historically, that has usually been sufficient influence to keep homosexual behavior the least harmful. Currently, validation of their behavior has become so virulent, the Marxist use of the homosexual to destroy Western precepts of civilization are very effective.

I would be hard pressed to do that. I enjoy typing my odes to evilgelicals and Generalissimo Franco type Catholics. We can't ignore them all.

His posts read like a parody of a 19th Century man of letters who is on LSD [sic]. It's always fun when there's his approximation of "Natural Sciences" jargon that is actually just batsht crazy.

We've had a glimpse into his mind via his missives. Imagine what the inside of his kitchen or his outhouse looks like (hopefully separate.) And corpses of family members propped up around the living room? How many generations back do you think they run? With meat thermometers in them to assist with longevity? Well, I am a betting man.

It's just that invective aimed at him is such a glorious challenge. Try to think of something negative you could say about him that is likely not mere reportage....

One could write a similar rant ( only three or four times longer ) about the evils heterosexuals have brought, and continue bringing, into the world; composed of true facts, not the preposterous lies you seem so fond of and that we've heard before ad nauseam .

Hardly.

You are surrounded by gay folks every day of your life, and you don't even know they are there. How is that "shocking"?

If you are shocked that a few people can only be attracted to the same gender, that's your problem. And a silly one at that.

Well adjusted and sane heterosexuals just don't have that problem.
