The reason was life expectancy you nut. 23 was middle aged

Wrong. In biblical times it was common for infants to be auctioned off for a bride price and "married" They didn't wait until they were 18 to consummate the marriage.
In 1900 you know what the age of consent was in many states? TEN YEARS OLD ("A Guide to America's $ex Laws - Silbaugh/Posner") Know why? Because 'good Christian legislators' were making the laws using a bible that doesn't say one word about adults having $ex with children even though it thinks to mention bestia1ity. Was god more concerned with the welfare of animals than children? Evidently so. And that's why it's frightening that the Christians want to regain control of things. We'll be back to adults marrying children because it was 'biblical'.
It's modern psychology, which you all hate, that began doing studies and collecting evidence that children as old as 17 can be harmed by $exual relationships with adults. This is the same modern psychology that says homosexuality is normal and healthy. The testimony of these psychologists has been used to RAISE the age of consent in every state in the US.
So let's look to modern psychology and actual facts to make our laws instead of your bronze age middle eastern desert tribe that didn't understand a thing about human sexuality.

That is an unsubstantiated lie. NEVER have they followed wild animals around for their entire life to know this

It's very natural. In fact there are many animal species that have a percentage of their population that is exclusively homosexual and will never in their lifetime mate with the opposite gender or reproduce.

So you think that if the life expectancy was 46 that would justify an adult having sex with a prepubescent child? Try using your brain.

The original criteria was that you were going to show us a verse from the bible that condemned child molesters or child molestation. You still haven't done that. Know why? It's not in there.

Yes they have and they do. They often tag and monitor animal populations. Plus there are plenty of people that keep animals and can tell you clearly that some will never mate with the opposite sex and do mate with the same sex.

Try going to youtube and searching on "homosexuality in animals" if you don't believe me.

I don't think we NEED to. Lying isn't against the law.

But sociopaths cause harm to unwilling victims. This is not analogous to homosexuality, which involves only consenting adults. There is no "victim".

Why are some people so quick to associate homosexuality with crimes that victimize someone? Does it harm you if someone is gay, or if they choose a partner? Should they be arrested and imprisoned for doing so? Are all the sociopaths in your life very similar to all the gay people in your life? Do you know many of either? Do you really think this is a fair comparison, and on what basis?

You make a good point...you said lying isn't against the law...homosexuality isn't either.....

I would venture to say society is the victim of open homosexuality, as it forces us to subject our children to it, and our consciences to it.

No it doesn't. Your children are simply learning to accept people as they are. They don't have to be homosexual if that isn't how they are in the first place. IOWs they are learning to be accepting of all people instead of being bigots. What's wrong with that?
