How, from an evolutionary standpoint, has the homosexual gene or trait survived the natural selection process? It seems to me that it would have been weeded out quite early on, considering that evolution is all about 'passing on' ones genetic information. Not saying that I buy evolution either, but taking it from that viewpoint I guess.
It's an honest question. I'm not trying to be rude or anything, since I really could care less what other dudes do with their junk, I guess I'm a little selfish that way.

Gays 'will never go to heaven'
(visit the link for the full news article)
HOMOSEXUALS and transsexuals "will never enter the kingdom of heaven", a leading Roman Catholic cardinal said overnight.
Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan said that while the Church regarded homosexuality as an "insult to God", this did not justify discrimination against gay and transsexual people.
4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
It's pretty clear that idols/statues etc should NOT be worshipped. The Catholic Church (and others) worship statues of Jesus and the cross and idols such as Mary. Ask yourself why do they ignore the 'word of God'?
The Catholic Church simply cuts this section out of the 10 Commandments altogether. No offence to Catholics but you really need to read before you believe what you are told

Gay people in loving committed relationships are the same as adulterers?

the reason that God would not let a gay person into heaven is because they are living there lives carnaly. you are supose to controle ur urges and not let ur urges controle you. a gay person would be denied passage the same that a normal person commiting adultery would. one sin does not stop you from getting into heaven, its the fact that u didnt repent and try harder to live spiritualy. people seem to have a hard time controling there urges these days. dont worry so much about sex or ur car or ur Ipod and worry more about being spiritual.worry more about not needing objects and pleaure. the man that does not "want", does not need. sex is for making more humans not to get ur rocks off in everything you see. but any ways , you should do what ever makes u happy. wether gay or strate, God loves you and if u have the "want" to get into heaven you will.

Maybe Jesus was gay and you'll find him there, along with gay sympathisers like his disciples and his Mom.

This is how it works...
Pretty much everyone on this forum will be dead within fifty years...
...but anyone whose spirit is united to 'the Spirit' will live on as a consequence of believing the Gospel...
...while everyone else is basically 'road kill'.

Homosexuality is incompatible with evolution per se. But.. homosexual can have children if they really want to. Some do, and some do have them, biologically I mean. And scientist have been looking for a gay gene for decades.
The problem is.. genes doesn't control cells. That protein chains are being produces is based on the environment and signals. Those can be brain sinals, sound signals and the environment itself.
So it's environment and the person itself (it's subconcious) that decides on many great deal of things.
If 5-15% of population won't have children - that's not a particalary bad idea. Although those people, the gays, have gone through more bad things than most people. My personal opinion - they are just better people in terms of being *less* judgmental. Irony, that those poeple wont' have children
