Damn dude, how do you read something then come up with the opposite of what it says.
Scientists have weighed in...they say homosexuality appears to be biological, not learned behavior. There are differences in brain makeup.
So no..not learned behavior in the same way blue eyes is not learned behavior.
what i do care about is the issue being forced on so many and the hate towards people who say they dont support it.
Its fine to disagree with gay marriage...thats fine, but you unfortunately used a strawman argument.
Like if you said, if you let people put chicken on their pizza, next you will let people murder children..
its a absurd leap to try and back your point up.
This is known as a strawman argument
You suggest something false and absurd, then attack that absurd statement to prop up your initial view.
and why do people who say they support traditional marriage get demonized as homophobic and all sorts of crap?
Well, how you approach this subject is definately crazy and arguably homophobic.
Now..let me demonstrate something for you.
I personally do not support the notion of gay people becoming married..yet nobody accuses me of being homophobic. My personal view on gay marriage is
that marriage itself is a religious institution, and only a religious institution should therefore decide who gets married by their qualifications.
And judeo-christian religion states pretty clearly that homosexuality (especially man/man) is very much a no-no..
However, the government is currently running this religious institution, and the government -must- be equal...so yes..I encourage the corruption of
this institution until either it truely is equal (down the line, I fully expect human/robot marriages to be recognised..equality and whatnot). or
until the actually proper move is made, which is government stop recognising marriage and drop any/all aspects of it from policy..instead simply
recognizing a civil union between two consenting adults.
My view isn't anti-gay, its anti-government in this area...marriage is a religious institution, government has no right to weigh in...so, until
religious institutions finally freak out enough to demand government never try to get into the business of religion, I will personally cheer its
Church/state should be forever seperate.
and perhaps pedophile was the wrong word? i was meaning more if say a 30 year old and a 13 year old want to get married, both consenting, or
something along those lines. should that be ok too? if that is just who the 30 year old is attracted to and the 13 year old is attracted to him, then
why not? in plenty of parts of the world, and at one time here in the states, 13 was considered plenty old enough.
Still illegal. lol
maybe make the girl 16. does that change it? or the other way around and the boy is 13 and woman is 30?
Unless its russia or something, then meh.
if we are really going to open it up for everyone, it should really be for everyone right?
biologically speaking, humans become sexually attracted to other human being starting as young as 14 years old (post-pubescent). We then have laws
that dictate when we can start doing stuff to them.
Currently, in this country (usa), it is 18 for the age of consent.
Do I find a 60 year old man dating a 18 year old woman weird?
The lucky bas--rd
But its legal, and biologically the norm
Drop the gay people = raping kids..thats just in your mind and not in any identifiable reality.
There are strong arguments to be had in opposition to gay marriage...but so far, you are using the weak and non arguments.
rethink the issue...try to figure out why your truely opposed to it...get to the root of it...and see if its relevant to an objective reality. And
drop this rather stupid pedo line..only the most kooky low brow taliban style religious use such a easily defeated nonsense point.
