Republicans in front of a National camera scream JOBS-JOBS-JOES,but behind the door in back they work on abortions,and women rights..and NOT JOBS as THEY WOULD LIKE YOU TO BELIEVE.

Republicans War On Women.

100,000 Strong for a Real "Violence Against Women Act"

Despite President Obama’s veto threat, Republicans passed a bill that denies protections for victims of domestic violence if they are immigrants, Native Americans, or members of the LGBT community.

Republicans are calling it their “Violence Against Women Act.” The truth is any bill that discriminates against women because of their ethnic background or sexual orientation is not worthy of being called the Violence Against Women Act.

Will you stand with us for protecting all women in the Violence Against Women Act?

Those of you who say that homosexuality is a choice don't really know what you are talking about. I'm not gay, but I do have close friends who are, and I believe what they tell me. That feeling of discomfort you have if you are a heterosexual man and think about what it would be like to be with another guy? That's the same feeling a gay man has when he thinks about being with a woman. He can't "choose" to be anything. As far as the posters who use Leviticus as their basis for hating homosexuality.....well, no bacon or pork chops for you. Also, you'll have to throw away most of your clothes, as no fiber blends are allowed. Oh, and it's ok if you want to sell your daughter into slavery. But there is an upside; you can have more than one wife if you wish. Well, that kinda sheds a new light on the Defense of Marriage Act, doesn't it? Oh, you say conditions have changed? No, you can't have it both ways. Either the Bible is the immutable word of God, or it isn't. It seems to me that if homosexuality was important to the Creator, he would have had Jesus say something about it. He didn't. Not one word. Also, why are there so many gay animals? Did they "choose" to be gay, or did God make them that way?

You need a subscription to National Geographic.

There is a ton of documented evidence of same sex activities in the animal kingdom, from elephants to canine, I will stop there because it is a long list, don't take my word, do a little unbiased research on the subject matter.

Great post :)

Actually, there is an entire book on same sex activities in the animal kingdom written by Bruce Bagemihl entitled Biological Exuberance. I used it as one source several years back for an argumentative essay on the position that sexual orientation is not chosen.
