(hide) rs16944 is a SNP in the interleukin 1, beta gene, a member of the cytokine family involved in the inflammatory response. The rs16944 G;G genotype is associated with risk for multiple mental illnesses. An increased risk for schizophrenia was found in a genetic association study of 2111 Caucasian individuals with an odds ratio of 1.24 (95% CI 1.09, 1.41) . Studies examining the brains of schizophrenic and bipolar individuals found reduced gray matter and hypoactivity associated with the G;G genotype. Additionally, this genotype is associated with impaired ability to achieve remission in a study of 256 Caucasian individuals with depression (odds ratio = 1.74; 95% confidence interval 1.2-4.3). The rs16944 A allele increases susceptibility to Osteoarthritis, with 1.80 times for heterozygotes (A...
7x less likely to respond to certain antidepressants. This version of a blood brain barrier protein blocks many common antidepressants from entering the brain, including: amitriptyline (Elavil), citalopram (Celexa), paroxetine (Paxil), and venlafaxine (Effexor). That makes those antidepressants 7 times less effective.
References:84 2.74x increased risk of developing schizophrenia rs6603272, part of a haplotype block spanning introns 4, 5 and 6 of the IL3RA gene, has been reported in a whole genome association study to be associated with schizophrenia. (The other SNPs in this block are rs6422441 and rs17883192.) The risk allele (oriented to the dbSNP entry) is (G); the odds ratio associated with this allele is 2.74.

It really isn't that hard to understand:
If you want to aid in the demise of humanity; you are mentally ill.
I really hope they ARE mentally ill. Because if they aren't mentally ill, then they are psychopathic trying to eliminate mankind and should therefore all be killed.

So to them the law of Moses included the sodomites that were classically defined as practicing homosexuals. Jesus knew this passage, so there can be no mistake in what Jesus taught.
That's actually not true. Jewish tradition never had God condemn Sodom or Gomorrah for homosexuality. If you read the ancient texts found with the Dead Sea Scrolls, like the Book of Jubilees and Jasher, you'd see that traditionally, they were condemned because of the inhumane way they treated travelers, visitors and tourists. It had nothing to do with the sexual orientation of population.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are the traditional books that Jesus taught from, if he existed. Not the King James edition of our modern Bible.
Scholars even argue that the word "homosexual", found in Paul's writings, was never used in the texts at all, that its use in the New Testament, is a modern interpolation.
And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove

Yea. I already mentioned that the industry is moving in that direction when I mentioned biotech. Treatments, both physical and mental, are going to be custom tailored to YOUR body instead of a blanket treatment designed to treat as many people as possible.

Pretty sure if a pedo touches little boys that makes them a gay pedophile. And if said pedo was a guy and touches girls that just makes him a pedophile.
Pretty easy to understand the subtle differences.
