    Maybe Gayness is a cult like Mormonism??? Time for another pilgrimage to Texas.

    Keechum, that’s unfair. You don’t know if there was any sucking going on— it might have been just petting and anal intercourse.

    Ruben nailed this one.

    I’m really surprised that gay marriage/sex defenders consider this a conclusive argument. Being heterosexual is normal, so it doesn’t need to be “chosen.”

    So is homosexuality and bisexuality and those who aren’t sexual at all. Even nature needs a governor on reproduction. Too bad it hasn’t worked.

    How does it matter whether it’s choice or not? In either case it’s not a justification for bigotry. So what if that guy over there chooses a different kind of sexuality from yours? How does that give you the right to discriminate against him?

    Very true but some of them want us to be a back door theocracy.

    Being gay is normal for gay people. And what kind of sex one has doesn’t define one’s orientation (for lack of a better word); orientation is defined by one’s fundamental emotional and physical attraction, whether it’s ever acted upon or not.

    This week’s adventure was totally not-gay, in a totally gay way, and now my marriage is feeling pretty threatened. Busy, busy, busy…

    The point about “choice” is that each of us is responsible for our actions, and no one is forcing anyone to engage in homosexual sex. Homosexuality may be a temptation for some people, just as alcohol is a particular temptation for some, but each of us still has to answer for our choices to God. Now, one’s relationship to God as well as what one does iin the privacy of one’s home is one’s own business, and no one is trying to interfere with anyone there. But marriage is not a “right,” nor are high school clubs based on sexual preference. As long as homosexuals are not asking the larger society to metaphorically “bless” their choices, then I don’t have any personal problem with homosexuality. But homosexuals will never be satisfied until homosexuality is recognized as the norm and heterosexuals are stigmatized. The list of homosexual demands is ten times longer than it was 20 years ago, and it just gets longer and longer every year. It’s a slippery slope and ends up being a form of reverse discrimination. Homosexuality is essentially oppositional, an adolescent form of rebellion against the larger society; it has no logical stopping point.

    And with that, having proven once again that he knows nothing at all of science or tolerance, he put away his soap box and was returned peaceably to the asylum.

    grovercleveland, straight out (ha) that is a mighty large load of pseudo-intellectual crap that you spread all over the place. Cripes, need a snow shovel now, my knees are getting stinky.

    That sounds like pure, illogical hysteria. I’m gay, and know a lot of gay people, and neither I nor them want to “stigmatize” heterosexuality. We don’t want to take anything away from heterosexuals, or punish or penalize them or put obstacles in the way of them forming families or prevent them from having legally recognized partnerships with the attendant benefits and obligations. If you happen to know gay people who DO want those things, please don’t feel they represent the majority. To compare homosexuality to alcoholism is the worst kind of specious reasoning; my fundamental attraction to the same sex is not pathological or destructive. You ARE right about one thing: No one has forced me and my partner to have a loving, committed, supportive relationship for the past 14 years, but neither is it a horrible “temptation” that we should feel obligated to resist. If your religious beliefs instruct you differently, by all means don’t let anyone force you into a homosexual relationship. But don’t use those same beliefs to limit the scope of MY participation in or use of the culture.
