Of course variations in sexual orientation are perfectly natural. It's theocracy in the US that isn't, you stupid, Middle Ages' mullah.

Yes, they are. How do you explain the existence of hemaphrodites?

These variations are not typical, and might even be rare, but they are still natural variations in that they occur in nature.

Naturally backwater, frightened freeeks don't think so, but everyone else does at this date.

And cretin, the demographic trends are clear, as I said.

Nice try. That doesn't speak to "variations in sexual orientation."

Variations in gender or in genitalia would be a different point, which I assume you know until proven otherwise.

This country is a political Babylon. Everyone wanting to be their own God in their personal pleasure paradise kingdom.

We will fall like the Romans did butt we will destroy to whole planet in the process.

It is not to late to concede our failings then reverse our insanity.

LOL

Sexual "orientation" (not sure that is the correct word here) isn't an all-or-nothing thing. It may be for most people - those we call heterosexual - but just because a person is not visibly or morphologically a hemaphrodite doesn't mean that they can't be born with sexual attractions for the same or both sexes. These things DO occur in nature, and have been a part of human existence ever since anyone started writing stuff down.

It is true we have not yet identified the genes responsible for this, and maybe it's not that simple. Maybe it's nature and nurtuire. Who cares.

None of it is a justification to treat people differently under the law.

Only gays do, period. As for the demographics, I'm not dying off any faster than your kind are and I can make more.

Good for you.

But your ideology is dying out, quickly.

Millenials and most of GenY are not interested in social conservatism.

GenX doesn't give a shit about anything.

Who does that leave?

The times have left you behind. What you perceive as "political correctness" is just the subjective experience of being in the cultural minority.

Never mind that social conservatism isn't conservative at all. It's authoritarian.

And what do we call right wing authoritarians? I forget, but I do recall ourr grandparents fighting in a big war with them some time ago. Perhaps you remember.

so you're saying that if a man prefers and is attracted to another mans a nus, rather than to a woman, that is good, healthy and all American?
Is that the motive? Attraction to the anus? How do you assign such a motivation?

"good" is a subjective evaluation.

"healthy" as you appear to be using it here qualifies as an "equivocation fallacy".

"American" is ambiguous.

Generally, you've employed the Red Herring Fallacies: Appeal to Emotion, Argumentum ad Populum (implied), Appeal to Ridicule; and also generally the Moralistic Fallacy.

Why not study the Fallacies and try not to use them in your posts ... or your thinking?

I disagree. When people say they don't care what gays do, gays take that as support.
Take your own informal poll. Ask honest questions. Example: How do you feel about a man marrying a man? You will get a lot of "I don't care." A lot of "I never really thought about it." You will not get many "I think that's great." If you do, you will be taking your poll in a gay bar.

Well then I expect you will be as surprised as Mitt Romney was when he lost, because he ignored all the real polls.

It's not about popular opinion when it comes to marriage and other rights anyway. It's a constitutional issue and a function of the courts.

And guess what they are doing. Do you know why? Because the arguments they make, including all the ones you make here, fail. They fail to justify the law treating you like an American and a gay(er) version of you as a lesser sort-of american. Gays are Americans. Deal with it.

you just made a simple question complicated....all I asked the nancy boy was if being attracted to another mans rectum was all that great. it was more of a yes or no question, and was not even directed at you. You must have liked my question too, based on your methodical explanation of the topic. Mensa just called, they said be on time for the meeting, and it was your turn to bring the starbucks.

Nancy boy? LOL! There's nothing more pathetic than an insecure straight male.
