I see from the survey it appears that most people here think that homosexuality is a choice and a sin.

If that were true, wouldn't that mean that we're all inherently bisexual in nature? So what you're all telling me is you find members of the same sex equally as attractive as members of the opposite sex, but you choose the opposite sex because you read the bible?

I'm confused here

I'm a little confused. How does most people here thinking homosexuality is a sin mean that we're all inherently bisexual?

Oddly enough,something similar to this came up at work today. I work with a girl who is "with" another girl and has been for a while. She has been married and had three kids. Hubby was a jerk and didn't help her much. She told us today that she is bisexual(kind of obvious) she hadn't stopped liking men,but after her divorce,she felt she never really had gotten her crazies out. That's when she entertained the idea of a woman. It was a total choice.

She told me all of this after I had asked her if she felt she always liked women or did it happen after her divorce,because her husband was a jerk.

Just because someone uses the Bible to base their moral opnions on,does not mean they are "haters". People are allowed to think it's wrong,but it doesn't mean they hate all gay people. It means they think it's a sin...so what?

Well, perhaps you could help un-confuse me by explaining how you came to that particular conclusion. As it stands, I have no clue how you made the jump you did.

Acting on ANY sexual impulse is a choice.

But what science has yet to prove is that there is any genetic (or even biological) component to homosexual impulses. Until such proof is presented and accepted by the scientific community at large, I'll stick with it being an abnormal choice.

Thinking homosexuality is a CHOICE implies that we're all inherently bisexual.

If choice is involved, that means you're equally attracted to both sexes.

If you think it's a sin, that's fine. And it's fine for me to think that you're ridiculous for thinking it's a sin as well.

But let's move on. My problem isn't that people think it's a sin, it's that they condemn it with much more disdain than other sins. We're all sinners according to the bible. Why is homosexuality looked at as a much worse sin than some others?

I disagree.

There is a choice, on which way to go through life, that our education and parenting assist with - but I don't think it's like we're all bisexual and flip a coin for our decision. It's not as much that we choose to be heterosexual but rather we choose NOT to go the homosexual route.

I'm still a firm believer that the penis and vagina were made in certain ways for a reason, they just kinda fit together. The womans body was made to be able to procreate. The mans body was made to deliver. One's ass is made for shitting.

Ask anyone who is 100% heterosexual if they could, on a whim, choose to engage in homosexual sex and I'll wager that you'll get an almost unanimous "NO!". The revulsion that you and I and most heterosexuals feel towards the thought is, not only natural I believe, but also very strong evidence that homosexuality is NOT a choice. Homosexuals aren't merely heterosexuals who choose to have same gender sex, in most cases and IMO. There has to be something physically different about them since they appear to lack this natural revulsion towards homosexuality.

Why does whether or not it was a choice matter? If I found out it was genetic right now, I would still find it disgusting. Lots of people are born with disease, that doesn't mean we shouldn't help them. What's so wrong with me finding it disgusting, and not agreeing with the actions? Do you really think I should just say "Ok, they can't help it, it's not so bad after all"?

Nothing is wrong with you finding it disgusting. Where you are wrong is thinking that it's immoral just because it's disgusting. Child birth is disgusting to me. Does that make it immoral? Of course not. If you witnessed most surgical procedures, you'd think they were disgusting as well. Does that make them immoral?

And why does it matter if it's a choice? Ever heard of free will? If it's not a choice then it's not a sin.

Lookup the definition of abnormal, homosexuality fits the very definition.

Just because rats, monkeys, squirrels & donkeys do it, doesn't mean a civilized society should follow suit and find it normal. My dogs eat one another's crap, and dogs and cats have done this since the beginning of time, would you find it abnormal if a civilized society started doing such?

Not saying that at all. And thus my request for you to clarify your original post.

Let's put it this way. You have two disjoint phenomena (impulse and action) which you seem to be stating are the same thing. I am asking you to provide scientific evidence to support your assertion, or at the very least to clarify your position.

Try thinking things out once in a while and not simply relying on some emotional or sensational claim. You'll have more credibility if you do.

By the way I ran across this interesting article today

http://www.floridabaptistwitness.com/7125.article


For some time now, scientists have been looking for a genetic or hormonal cause of sexual orientation. Thus far, no "gay gene" has been found -- at least not in terms of incontrovertible and accepted science. Yet, it is now claimed that a growing body of evidence indicates that biological factors may at least contribute to sexual orientation.



That's where the issue gets really interesting. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [PETA] has called for an end to the research, while tennis star Martina Navratilova called the research "homophobic and cruel" and argued that gay sheep have a "right" to be homosexual. No kidding.

Homosexual activists were among the first to call for (and fund) research into a biological cause of homosexuality. After all, they argued, the discovery of a biological cause would lead to the normalization of homosexuality simply because it would then be seen to be natural, and thus moral.

But now the picture is quite different. Many homosexual activists recognize that the discovery of a biological marker or cause for homosexual orientation could lead to efforts to eliminate the trait, or change the orientation through genetic or hormonal treatments.

Be careful what you wish
You may regret it

But on a more serious note, I think we can learn one thing from this. Far left people like PETA are crazy beyond our comprehension.

And I don't understand why gays would oppose the gay gene being eliminated. Are they upset that there won't be any 22 year old fags looking for s sugar daddy when they're in their 50s? :lol:

That's what I was thinking. I think homosexual sex will be a sin, no matter what, but I think there must be a biological cause for the attraction, but anyway, gays have been saying for a long time that it's obvious homosexuality isn't a choice, because why would anybody voluntarily go through the associated ridicule. Now, however, they want to forcefully stop scientific research in order to force others to go through that same humiliation. Why? It's the same thing that's been happening a lot in the deaf community (remember those wackos who had their child permanantly deafened en utero?).

Yeah, it's really a double edged sword for them. I can't believe people would consider the research homophobic. I find this topic to be VERY interesting. I didn't hear about that deaf couple you were talking about but that is just incredibly selfish of them to want their child to suffer the same hardships that they have. They should be charged with some form of child abuse IMO.

But let's consider this question. Assuming that you will be able to make your unborn child not gay this presents a very difficult question that many on the left will have to answer. How can you be pro choice and not support the right of people to change the sexual orientation of their child? I'm personally pro choice but I'd also support people eliminating the gay if that's what they wanted to do. This is going to put many of the crazies in a very uncomfortable position regarding how they view abortion and gay issues.

In other words, this is going to be fucking awesome. Let the bloodshed of debate begin.

Not really. Doing something in a natural way isn't really a choice. It's like saying that people choose to walk on their feet instead of their hands. It's perfectly natural to walk on your feet; that's the way we were designed. It's similarly natural to engage in heterosexual behavior, because it's how we were designed.

Mental health comes into question, many people that choose certain lifestyles were screwed up as children. Just because a person doesn't remember being molested doesn't mean it didn't happen and took part in screwing their head up. It was generally felt for years that the reason women ended up with other women was because of a bad experience with a male in their past. Now it has become fashionable to experiment, it serves a purpose of getting sexually gratified without dealing with the opposite sex, a dildo does the same thing.

How about heterosexuals that end up in jail, how do you explain that one powerman? Guys that would never consider homosexual activity outside end up doing it in jail. Are they giving in to latent homosexual urges or are they raping another person to dominate them? Is it that they have such an overwhelming desire for sex that they will stick it into anything?


The animal thing is pure bullshit. Animals act on instinct, instinct to reproduce. They don't look at another and think, wow look at him, I need to do him. Ask anyone that truely knows animals and you will find that most without an agenda will tell you it is all about domination not sexuality. My friend's dog humps the leg of strangers that come over to her house, how do you explain that? What homosexuals interpret as two monkeys having homosexual sex is one dominating another as some jerk in prison does to a weaker person.

Yes except that homosexuality is more common in many animal species than it is in humans.

How about heterosexuals that end up in jail, how do you explain that one powerman?

Knowing several people that have worked in prisons, the homosexuality is seriously exaggerated. Usually the homosexuality and rape only occurs in the really hard core prisons. If you're in a state pen for murder then that's the type of place you can expect the rape to happen.

But that doesn't really explain homos in regular society. They've clearly got access to the opposite sex, they just don't want it. And most women will tell you that homo guys are generally very attractive so it's not like they can't get any.

That doesn't make Sitarro's point about animals any less valid, though.

I see you guys still don't get it

All of the things you mentioned are wrong, but things that you might WANT to do for whatever reason.

I've wanted to punch people before and didn't because I'm not a violent person.

I've never WANTED to have sex with another man and thus I didn't.

If I DID want to have sex with other people then I'd be faced with a CHOICE

The fact that I've NEVER been tempted to do such a thing tells me that there isn't much choice involved

I am glad you see the choice. It is good of you, since you have never been tempted to see the choice. That is really what it is, a choice.

I think you actually proved my point without realizing it.

The key word in that sentence was IF and you obviously missed it

Fact is, I don't have the desires, thus it isn't much of a choice. You probably think homosexual behavior is pretty disgusting. I do too. So why would someone who has the same sexual orientation as you willfully choose to engage in acts that they also find extremely disgusting?
