    Utopia:
    Please invest in a dictionary. Sexuality does not equate sexual intercourse or sexual positions. There are many different forms of sex, and they are not the same as sexual orientation. Homosexuality is basically the physical, emotional and spiritual attraction to others if your own gender, while heterosexuality is the same attraction to others of the opposite gender. And when you’re done with the dictionary, but a book on evolution, you seem very confused about that as well.
    And yes, couples bond in many ways, but the intimacy of sex is no less important, and cannot be achieved through bowling. Duh.
    And again, pedophiles harm people. I don’t doubt that they have no control over their attractions, but they cannot be allowed to act on them.

    You mistake logic with emotion here. I initially made a logical connection that many anti-gay people ignore. And again, being gay is not a choice. You keep ignoring my challenge. Not surprising.

    Utopia:
    I have said many times on here that I consider myself agnostic. I neither believe, nor disbelieve. I did, however, grow up Christian, I have read the Bible and I know what it says.
    Murder and rape harm people. Love and marriage does not.
    And no, there is no gay gene. That is far too simplistic for the reality of biology and genetics. However, there is a clear genetic link to sexual orientation. This has been shown by study after study. It is not as simple as a single gene, but the link is there. I could also ask you to show me the tall gene. Same principle.
    Being gay is not deviance, gay rights is about equality, and you are the one twisting Christs teachings here. You are being a tool of satan even if you believe otherwise.

    Utopia: your arguments are going all over the place here, and really make no sense. Again, all sex serves the biological function of physical release and bonding between partners. The vast, vast, VAST majority of all sex, gay and straight does not result in conception, nor is it intended to. Nor is sex required for conception. And yes, we all decide whether to have sex and who to have it with. That is completely tangential to the rest of this arguments, and does not negate the positives of gay relationships and intimacy between couples.

  • [5] June 22, 2016 at 8:53pm

    Nope, just rational. You should try it sometime.

    Utopia:
    Homosexuality has been around in humanity as long as humanity has been here. Homosexual coupling has been observed in hundreds of other species. Yes, it is normal. If you would like to try and argue that it is not, you need to say why, and you have not.
    Again, being gay is not a choice, which I’m sure you know since you continue to ignore my challenge for you to choose to be gay yourself.
    I have never misrepresented anything from the Bible, I have only reminded you and others what it actually says. If you want to claim I have misrepresented something, show me where.
    I also have not called you specifically a bigot, but if you oppose equality because of your irrational fear/hatred, perhaps you are. I don’t know you enough to make that call.
    And no one has forced you or anyone else to accept gays. You are free to have your own backwards beliefs, but you should know that most people are rational and accept gay marriage, and know that being gay is normal.
    Also using your religion as an excuse to discriminate and deny others equality, and to use your beliefs to spread hatred is the real tool of satan. You have neither God nor science behind you. Only lies and blindness.

    Utopia:
    Actually, you misunderstood. I have the biological purpose for gay relationships. But if you mean the biological purpose of specific sex acts, then it is biologically important as a hormonal release, important for bonding as a couple, but will not result in procreation, just like 99.999999999% of the sex any straight couple has.

  • [4] June 22, 2016 at 4:24pm

    Utopia:
    As usual, so much to correct here. I didn’t actually call you a bigot, I said that the flag doesn’t represent bigots who oppose equality. Being gay is not a choice as you well know. If you still think it is, prove it by choosing to be gay for a while. No need to have sex, just be attracted physically, emotionally and spiritually to others of your gender. And being gay is just as “normal” as being straight. Unless of course you mean statistically. Then it is just as normal as being left handed, evangelical or very tall. I have also never misrepresented Gods word (or the Bible, which is not His word). I have only given factual information, you and others have misrepresented it.

    Sorry, but these are the facts, this is reality, and your denial won’t change that.

    Utopia:
    Actually gay relationships have exactly the same functions and purpose as straight one. Raising children, a stable family environment, etc. Gay couples can either adopt or conceive with a little help from science. Just like any infertile or elderly couple. But nice try. And feel free to define anything however you want. Just know that it won’t change reality, and you’ll be the only one with those definitions.

    Utopia:
    The gay pride flag represents the vast diversity of the LGBT community. You are correct that it doesn’t represent bigots who want to deny is equality. If that bothers you, feel free to interpret the symbol any way you like. Feel free to keep ignoring reality. But we will keep getting married, keep celebrating who we are, and keep living our lives. We aren’t going anywhere.

    Utopia;
    Good thing that begging gay isn’t deviance, and the only thing that results from a loving gay relationship is a loving gay relationship.

    Paladin:
    It’s been marriage equality from the start. Gay marriages are no different than straight ones, deserve the same laws and rights as straight ones, and now have that in this country. No other contractual method has ever been the same as marriage.

    How many interracial couples are there nationwide? Did the SCOTUS change “the entire fabric of a nation” when interracial marriage was legalized too?

    It means a rainbow to me. Waved at a gay pride parade, it represents gay rights to me. Shown in a church, it represents the Noah’s ark story.

    Utopia:
    LOL. Well, the rainbow flag represents the straight allies of the gay community as well, but not the anti-gay crowd like you. But again, it is an LGBT symbol. And I have deceived no one. All I bring to the table here is truth and rationality. But sadly, some will resist it.

    Foo:
    Well, since procreation isn’t a requirement for marriage, since not all straight couples can conceive, since adoption is also an option, and since the world is overpopulated anyway, this is not a problem. Using scientific advancements for conception is a big deal.

    Utopia:
    Well, I guess every day we get a little closer to the end of the world no matter what happens.

  • [2] June 22, 2016 at 2:01pm

    Utopia:
    I’m glad you recognize that different people can interpret symbols in different ways.

  • [3] June 22, 2016 at 1:56pm

    Foo:
    Have I (or has any gay person) ever said that straight people should not be able to marry? Has anyone said straight people don’t deserve equality? I’m not sure what you’re trying to insinuate here.

  • [8] June 22, 2016 at 1:38pm

    The rainbow is a symbol for God’s promise, and for gay rights. It is also a spectrum of light which is important in optical science. Bottom line, symbols can mean whatever you want them to mean.

    One year of marriage equality, and the world hasn’t ended! The only change has been that loving couples can now be legally married.

    The rule is not new, but there is irrationality and fear behind it.

    And how does a pointless rule like this make anyone more secure? Perhaps you should actually read my post.
