It doesn't matter if lgbt people are the minority. Str8 allies and lgbt people are now the majority, even on the most controversial issue of marriage.
It doesn't matter if you don't figure out you're a bigot, you'll just continue to see Chick fil A try to backtrack, Carson not speak at graduation, homophobically tweeting NFL players upbraided by their employers, Duck people face opprobrium, anti gay real estate flippers have their proposal for a show nixed.
But you'll never realize that homophobia is reviled in educated society. You'll simply die. We don't have to reach you. We simply have to do our work in educated sectors of the population and wait.
I might agree that homosexuality may becoming more widespread within our society just as drug abuse has become so widespread. This is why a parent's only defense in safeguarding their kids is to teach them to just say NO. Teach your children well, parents!

Except you're sexually ill and have a misconception that sexual orientation can be changed by pressure.

Maybe what can happen is that lgbt people can be driven into the closet, but those days are increasingly gone.

That's what upsets you tee baggrz and fundies.

So ultimately we don't care what you agree with. The sexually sick homophobes are dying off demographically from the population, and are already unacceptable in higher education, the entertainment industry, pro sports, corporate America.

But you ignore 95% of scripture by comparison, so it's not about scripture. That was the point for the talibangelicals.

Variations in sexual orientation are perfectly natural. They exist throughout the natural world and throughout human history. What you mean here is that you have a psychosexual problem.

Healthy behavior can be difficult. Lots of people smoke and drink. That's not healthy. Go defame them. Safer sex ed can help: Condoms for vag inal and an al intercourse.

No, the majority of Christians in the Western democracies now favor even marriage equality.

According to what is a _Commandment_ you should be braying how those who covet unrepentantly have a special place in he ll [sic]. You aren't. That's telling.

I don't think that 5% statistically (maximum) supports a claim of "norm".
It does represent a deviation from the norm-almost an outlier.
Something that is described as "normal" conforms to a type, standard or regular pattern. Homosexuality doesn't conform to the regular pattern of behavior for men or women. That doesn't invalidate anyone. It just is. It's an abnormality.
I don't think that the advent of writing created homosexuality. I've never heard that expressed before.
yes it does, the regular pattern is the same percentage of gays in our species at all times...

homosexuality is a normal, natural part of our species. just a fact of the world. why are you trying so hard to deny this fact? does it shoot your prejudices down? when your prejudices conflict with the real world facts, which do you think should change?

no dear, it really isn't more prevalent..people are just free to admit who and what they are now.

you really think a parent telling their kid to not be gay will change them from what they are? that hasn't worked in the entire history of mankind...

Something that is at a 2-5% rate isn't "normal". It does occur "naturally" and could be thought of as "regular" in some sense, but it isn't "normal" or it would occur at a greater than 2-5% rate.

Yes, it's a "fact of the world", just as it's being an abonormality is.

The L.A. Times number is intentionally inflated to accommodate the absurd claims of the gay community there in Hollywood. They have to maintain some semblance of support, or the gays will intentionally target all their nine year old boys for rape poolside.

The real figures for the US are more in the range of one to one and a half percent of the population. A person can spend all his life traveling from town to town in the US... thousands upon thousands of towns and they will never be able to find a queer. US Census records can be correlated to support the one percent plus number. They didn't ask specific sexual orientations, but the numbers of households associated to same sex couples can be extrapolated.

Fine, if it's all so trivial and marriage is so worthless you can stop braying to stop marriage equality and you can end marriage for heterosexual couples.

You bear false witness like a tv fundierai$er buys luxury autos - reflexively.

But you're apparently too stu pid to recognize your own lying.

Not yet in the US, but not even fundies are stu pid and unhinged enough to not see it coming. About a third of the country already has marriage equality.

If any of this were about scripture you'd be more upset about the _Commandments_ concerning coveting and false idols. You are not. You have a psychosexual problem.

Again, fundie bigots are a disordered, anti rational subset within Christianity in the Western countries.

Mor on, you quoted selectively again, due to your illness.

Openly gay, strictly gay people are a relatively small group. Larger than Jewish Americans, though, for example.

But those who are bi, having sex with the same sex, engaging in situational homosexuality, in the closet make the percentage much higher than just openly, exclusively gay people. This is because Kinsey was absolutely correct about the spectrum of variations in sexual orientation and behaviors.

And again: It doesn't matter. Str8 allies and lgbt people are the majority now. Sexually sick, hypocritically "religious" nutcases are the minority in the West.

Hey nutcase, "social issues" means the agency of women, choice, lgbt rights, gun rights, free speech...all the usual tee baggrz and fundie obsessions. We know what that term means in the context of US politics.

Xstain mullahs are about the same on all these issues as are the muslim mullahs, even though we don't have to worry about the latter in the US.

The only difference, as I said, is that our secular, democratic traditions keep our mullahs somewhat in check.

No go follow your buybull and call for the death of sinners....
