LOL - - - NO.

I am responding to someone else who seems to want to use an issue as an excuse.

I am not gay. I worked for a company where I was the minority being a straight woman. That was about 20 years ago. I admit I was gay ignorant before my experience working for this company. Since then I have educated myself on what it is to be gay --- and equal rights of a minority.

AMEN to you OP, I couldn't have said it better. So many of these religious folk have gone totally insane and it is because of them and their hypocrisy that I am anti religious. They are some of the most vile and cruel people on the planet, religion kills. This GOD , a trivial GOD that plays chess with it's creation, this was invented by man. WWJD? Jesus would embrace you as one of his own... had his word not been hijacked and abused for power and control by a bunch of people dressing up and going to a building every Sunday. Its a CULT! Me and my wife have a different view on being born GAY. IMO you are born gay, it's not something you choose to be/ I was born straight, i did not choose to be straight. In nature gay occurs in the wild kingdom, it is a natural occurrence. Had every person be straight the population would be much higher and out of control.

NO you are not going to hell, the only hell that exists is the one people make for themselves. Those who judge you have created their own personal hell for themselves, and they are obviously not at peace. Its the one that try hard are the ones that have done the most evil deeds. They have contempt for their fellow human beings, they use religion as a front a disguise to cover up what foul people they really are. They live to control others and impose their will on them. I am in touch with my higher power, in privacy of my own home they way it should be. A personal relationship. It's simple and you don't need some cult leader/preacher to be the middle man.

Asexuality

thought experiment.

let us assume you are genetically programmed to pair-bond with a member of the same sex within your species.
(which is what you say when you say "i am born gay")

let us also assume that none of the members of the same sex are suitable in your eyes.
(in other words you aren't happy with any of them, kind of a worst case scenario)

would this not lead you to despair or frustration?
could this not lead you to be forced against your natural pre-disposition to an opposite sex partner to lead a happy life?
would you settle for a same sex partner that doesn't make you happy and continue to despair?

you are more than likely going to do what makes you happy.

in the end it is a choice, no matter what you choose to do.

just a thought.

Mizbeach40,

What a fantastic OP. I honestly couldnt have worded it any better if i tried. Those that believe so radically in religion are all accountable for the millions of lives that have been lost in the name of "God". I believe in a "Creator", but not the creator thats mentioned in the bible. My "Creator" made everyone and everything exactly the way they are for reasons known only to him/her.

It infuriates me the same it does you about how people can justify following and keeping religion alive the way they do when all they need to do is open their eyes and see what it has done to the world and continues to do to the world.

I congratulate you in your open-ness and i find it admirable that you have been able to stand up to those who clinch onto a "mass joke" to justify their own existence without finding the reasons for their own existence without the aid of a book, buildings or religious icon.

I dont have a problem with homosexuals at all, i am straight but have known many homosexual people who are all just as "normal" as others!

For example, a girl i went to high school with was a lesbian. Nice girl and gifted athlete. Her father disowned her and she committed suicide.. what a shame and what a waste of life. This is the father an Omnipotent GOD would approve of ? In all the universe and it marvel a supreme being still manages to have the mindset of a pompous enigmatic egotistical narcissist? WORSHIP ME UNDERLINGS GO TO CHURCH OR ELSE!

I don't think so,the Holy books were not authored my a super being but a group of men, men with flaws prejudice and opinions, interpretation of historic events... stories passed down to the dark ages. Written in a time much less civilized then today. The creator has no stake in our lives. . A force, beyond your comprehension dos not seek publication. The Bible clearly has instances of fabrication mixed with truths and half truths, contradictions and logical fallacies. It is an assessment done in a time that is now obsolete. The world was flat and the sun revolved around the earth as well. In a time when we were taking baby steps as a society.


Religion is a easy way out, it has all the answers for the person that does not want to seek them in himself. A super man has made decisions for you in a pagan format so it works for people. It is laziness frankly and a coping mechanism for most, things like death are not as frightening & less ominous as long as you play by the rules and be a good boyscout you get invited in to the club "heaven" , this is old world mumbo jumbo. Times when we dragged women by the hair through the castles. There is no gospel in it but in you.

2011; In a juvenile state as a species,We are going through acne and in a stage of mental masturbation right now
hopefully we don't get loaded up and total mom and dads car before we make it to graduation. And grow out of this "religious phase" and reach adulthood as a species. That is IF religion does not spark WW3 and kill us all

Butt sniffing is a single behavior of a select type of animal, while homosexuality is a sexual and mating process visible almost anywhere in the animal kingdom.

Why is it that people like you will use the argument that it is unnatural and that no animals in nature automatically do it, but then when the animals in nature are found, you change your argument to saying that nature is bad and humans shouldn't follow nature?

I could say anything is unnatural by that logic. Makeup is unnatural. It serves no purpose other than to inflame others with lust and is not found anywhere in nature. You can support makeup all you want, but in the end you can't prove that people should be doing it.

Right there I've made your point moot. You are comparing unlike things and acting as if homosexuality is just a behavior rather than a predisposition. (by the way, I think the butt-sniffing thing has to do with dogs having a much more acute sense of smell, and therefor they can tell things like health and hormones through the butt. If humans could tell so much in that way, it would probably be custom for us too)

I wish all homosexuals would take the upper ground and not bother others with their need for acceptance. Sure, anyone should complain when they're getting a lesser deal wether it be skin color, age, faith, whatever.

Let us say who you are sexually attracted to is such a small part of who any one is.

Gawd - - do heteros live their lives just to have sex? If you do I hope you are getting paid - - unless you are living in the woods eating off the land.

These gay guys had more to give humanity then spending all their time having sex or procreating.

Epaminondas (ca. 404 BC–362 BC) was a Theban general and statesman of the 4th century BC who transformed the Ancient Greek city-state of Thebes, leading it out of Spartan subjugation into a preeminent position in Greek politics. In the process he broke Spartan military power with his victory at Leuctra and liberated the Messenian helots, a group of Peloponnesian Greeks who had been enslaved under Spartan rule for some 200 years. Epaminondas reshaped the political map of Greece

Alexander the Great (356 BC – 323 BC), also known as Alexander III of Macedon was an ancient Greek King (basileus) of Macedon (336–323 BC). He was one of the most successful military commanders of all time and is presumed undefeated in battle.

Hadrian Publius Aelius Hadrianus (January 24, 76 – July 10, 138), as emperor Imperator Caesar Divi Traiani filius Traianus Hadrianus Augustus, and Divus Hadrianus after his apotheosis, known as Hadrian in English, was emperor of Rome from AD 117 to 138, as well as a Stoic and Epicurean philosopher. A member of the gens Aelia, Hadrian was the third of the so-called Five Good Emperors, or the second of the recently proposed Ulpio-Aelian dynasty. His reign had a faltering beginning, a glorious middle, and a tragic..

Antinous For the constellation, see Antinous (constellation); for the asteroid, see 1863 Antinous; for the mythological figure, see Antinous son of Eupeithes Antinoüs or Antinoös (Greek: Ἀντίνοος) (born ca. AD 110/111, died AD 130), was a member of the Roman Emperor Hadrian's entourage, to whom he was beloved. He was deified after his death. Antinous was born to a Greek family in Bithynion-Claudiopolis, in the Roman province of Bithynia in what is now north-west Turkey.

Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (, April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath, being a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the renaissance man, a man whose unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painter of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.

Michelangelo Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (March 6, 1475 – February 18, 1564), commonly known as Michelangelo, was an Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet and engineer. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo's output in every field during his long life was.

Pietro Aretino Pietro Aretino (April 20, 1492 – October 21, 1556) was an Italian author, playwright, poet and satirist who wielded immense influence on contemporary art and politics and invented modern literate pornography. Born out of wedlock in Arezzo (Aretino, "from Arezzo"), very casually educated then banished from his native city, Aretino spent a formative decade in Perugia, before being sent, highly recommended, to Rome. There Agostino Chigi, the rich banker and patron of Raphael, took him under his wing.

Dominique Phinot Dominique Phinot (c. 1510 – c. 1556) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the Renaissance, active in Italy and southern France. He was highly regarded at the time for his motets, which anticipate the style of Palestrina, and in addition he was an early pioneer of polychoral writing. He may have been French in origin, since Girolamo Cardano, writing about him in his Theonoston (1560) called him "Gallus", and French was evidently his native language.

Cyrano de Bergerac Hector Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac (6 March 1619 – 28 July 1655) was a French dramatist and duelist who is now best remembered for the many works of fiction which have been woven around his life story. In these fictional works he is featured with an overly large nose; portraits suggest that he did have a big nose, though not nearly as large as described in Edmond Rostand's play and the subsequent works about him.

Richard Cromwell (4 October 1626 – 12 July 1712) was the third son of Oliver Cromwell, and was the second Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland, for just under nine months, from 3 September 1658 until 25 May 1659. Cromwell's enemies dubbed him Tumbledown Dick or Queen Dick for his indecisive character.

Wow what is going on in here. I'll tell you this.....I have had friends, female that started out as strait, had some bad run ins with guys, became lesbians, then could not hack it and went back to guys. Now if they where born lesbians they would not have gone back and forth. They did not consider themselves Bi, just heart broken. So just like everything els, some choose and some have no choice. But why should any one care about others personal lives?Don't we all have bigger fish to fry. We are all struggling with economy, struggling with home, work, kids, and our own daily living hell in this world. Why add to it by wanting to control someone elses is doing or wanting to do! Born gay not born gay.....why should you care!?

Honestly, the people who ever choose are inherently bisexual. Bisexuals are the few who can choose, and they're not as common as the rest. Almost every gay man or woman I've known has realized they were gay way before sexual desire.
