Your child steals by using a gun, that child will go to prison for the rest of the childs life. christianity teaches morals. If your response is parents can teach morals without church, then why dont they, and why are the prisons over flowing?

Are you serious?? You must be joking. Homosexuality is NOT a medical condition. It's a normal, human sexuality just like heterosexuality is. In fact, it's not /just/ a human sexuality, it's a natural sexuality. It happens in, if I remember correctly, 450+ species other than humans. If homosexuality is a medical condition, heterosexuality must be one too, considering they're the exact same thing only with different sexes involved.

The difference between a psychopath and a homosexual is that psychopaths are dangerous while homosexuality is not...

Ahh, but then we go into the philosophical view of things.
What are we -meant- to do. procreate? Why? for the furthering of our species.
But why? So they can procreate and make more?
We have 7 billion people on the planet and we haven't achieved some sort of magical trancendence or anything...so it seems like just some pre-historic drive to multiply that keeps us enslaved to this thought.
what is the meaning of life? is it truely -just- to procreate? If this is true, then what is the point of trying to keep elderly people alive? homosexuality is akin to an older couple (whom also cannot procreate)...so its pointless
I think as a species, we either have a greater point of life than simply to breed (at this point...we are no where near becoming extinct)...and in which case, homosexual, hetrosexual, or asexual lifestyles are equally as valid.
Nobody is going to "talk me out of" being hetrosexual..and I don't feel the desire to talk someone out of being homosexual.
But you know what the true mark of respect gained from me is? Its not from the ability to breed (anyone can do that)...its being a parent..and a homosexual couple can be good parents just as easily as a hetrosexual couple...or not...they can be crap parents..but if a homosexual couple has a kid, chances are they worked hard to get that child verses had a "oops" moment, so are more likely to pay attention to him/her.

You can't keep dragging out the old 'it's nature because people were born that way' argument. Many psychopaths were born that way. So if they go on to murder someone, that's OK because it's natural is it? People are born with all sorts of medical conditions and genetic abnormalities. We try to make it better for them but hey, gayness is sacrosanct! I don't have a religious bone in my body. But I will not accept it's right or 'natural' thank you very much! Nor does this make me a 'homophobe' - another word the gay lobby likes to throw around. I say this because I have mates who are gay, nor would I discriminate in terms of employment. But label me that I don't care. In this world of Big Brother we are still entitled to our personal opinions.
Going back to the original post - it is wrong to use your child this way whatever the issue is.edit on 7-12-2011 by starchild10 because: (no reason given)

so a parent with the IQ of 70 votes to remove prayer and church related activities from a school that their child attends. Teaching morals is up to that parent alone. So i guess the old saying is wrong, "it takes a village to raise a child", and should be rewritten to be " it takes a village to raise a criminal", or "it takes a village to raise an idiot".
