The intent of the app is not vile, it is not hatred. It is just an app, period. If you don't like it don't use it.


The App is a tool.

The tool was created by the ignorant to teach a lie.

The vile spirit of the Apps creators taints their creation.

Welcome to modern morality.... The morality of understanding... Not the morality of primitive tribes

"Sinful" is meaningless to atheists, so its not an argument at all. Unnatural is defined as "not appearing in nature", so homosexuality is natural.

The intent is sinful and the action is unnatural. Been discussed to death.


Sinful? Oh great... O its fine for you to live with your primitive fairy tales, but not for me to love and # who I want?

Whatever...

I'll tell you what is unnatural...believing some dude died, got backup and flew into the sky....

It is only sinful if you believe in a fantasy story. What is sin anyway? Isn't it a sin to judge your fellow man?
It is also not unnatural. Animals of all species have homosexuality. Why should humans be any different. After all, your 'God' created us all, yes?

Homosexuality in animals: en.wikipedia.org...

Yes its wiki but I'm on my way out the door now. I am sure more evidence can be found to show homosexuality is actually perfectly natural.
More natural than believing in some bearded man in the sky....

How? As homosexuality doesn't fit any of those definitions?

Though I dare say resurrection fits number 2,3,4

The fact that you equate homosexuality with perversion IS HOMOPHOBIA!

Homosexuality is not "perverted". PERIOD!


Maybe if you stomp your feet and wave you hands over your head...that might do it.

Sorry the truth hurts.

Therefore homosexuality is unnatural.


1. it does not violate any natural law - DOH
2. How is it inconsistent within any of our customs? There was probably gay dinosaurs ( thats why they are extinct
)
3. How is it not normal there are literally millions of people on this planet who are gay. DOH
4. Gay = artificial or contrived ?? DOH
5 In violation of natural feelings, the best example yet - if their natural feelings are feelings that attract them to the same sex, they are therefore natural - DOH DOH DOH

Any better examples ????



EDIT - ( number 2 was obviously a joke )

Friendly reminder.

As always, this is a contentious topic to discuss. However, that doesn't mean it's acceptable to turn against other members with name calling, personal insults, and snide remarks.

Please stick to the topic, post wisely, and refrain from personal attacks.

Thank you.

1. In violation of a natural law


Homosexuality does not violate any natural laws, it is the result of natural laws (human evolution)



2. Inconsistent with an individual pattern or custom.


This definition says that everything what is not the attribute of majority is unnatural. if we use it then homoseuality (anong with many other things) is unnatural, but I fail to see how is it relevant to our argument, since such defined unnatural does not correlate with "bad" or "morally wrong" at all.



3. Deviating from a behavioral or social norm: an unnatural attachment.


This says that what minority of people does is unnatural. Again, such defined unnatural does not imply "bad", "immoral" or "detrimental for humanity" in any way, since saving jews during nazism would fall under it, and it was obviously positive and moral thing. Even Jesus would fall under it




4. Contrived or constrained; artificial: smiled in an unnatural manner.
5. In violation of natural feelings; inhuman


These have nothing to do with homosexuality.

Being gay is not natural but

Quote " I know this will sound weird but I feel like I'm a giant spirit trapped in a midgets body. "

or

Quote " Since I can remember I have always been able to feel when death is near "

Yet these things are natural ?

Im sorry i cannot take this argument seriously off you any more,

No dis respect,

Thats me done on this one ive made my points

Peace

Because there are litterally billions of people who are not gay. How is 6% considered the norm?
We have really strayed from the topic of this thread.
For the record I agree that the app is fine and not because I'm a Christian and disagree with the homosexual choice but it's about freedom of speech.

I might note that if they can say perversion is natural you could count on them saying that calling others names is natural as well.
