With all the problems facing this country some people have interesting priorities and a different definition of what is important and worthy of hero status. You people are something else
    You should try to temporarily put away your personal biases and watch "Wish me away" by Chely Wright. For some, it is a high priority facing this country as in:
    Wish Me Away shows both the devastation of her own internalized homophobia, which led to Chely putting a gun in her mouth, and the transformational power of living an authentic life. It shows the struggles of being a Christian who happens to be gay, even within her own family. And it reveals how “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” has found its way into the culture of Nashville.
    (from movie webpage) which she found out others have put a gun to their head too. Some one using their high profile to save others is a good thing, opposed to Brittany, Lindsay Lohan et al.

With all the problems in this country homosexuality shouldn't even be on the list.
    If it is such a small part of the country "flaunting" why would it bother you?

    So essentially, bigoted christians showed up to protest, the people overpowered them with their ovation, and you come onto internet forums to complain about the ovation. And as a matter of fact, we DO have a lot of problems in this nation right now, and lack of equal rights is one of the biggest.
    Oh, Good Lord, Arenas today are the Gyms of yesterday, just bigger. Get over it

    As for the Christians protesting, interesting that they were overpowered by the PC crowd when it should have been the other way around. Sam shouldn't have been cheered, he should have been ignored. What you do in your own bedroom is your business, cheering it is a sickness

    Why? because the TV's publicize it, the sitcoms glamorize it, the Media trumpets it. Too much emphasis given to a small minority in this country all because the "right" people are in positions of authority. It really is a shame that homosexual activity is playing such a prominent role in the country today especially with all the problems this country faces.

    Children cannot consent. Animals cannot consent. Is that really hard for you to understand? It does not matter if a person is attracted to them if they cannot consent. Seems pretty common sense to me.

    How about prevalence of consistency. In science, an inconsistent variation would be an anomaly. An anomaly of mental development is a mental disorder or illness. Statistical and inconsistent appearance at the rate of homosexuality would be considered anomaly in any other scientific endeavor. Such an anomaly would be researched and determined why the anomaly occurs and would not be considered normal variance. So clearly, in the case of homosexuality, scientific methodology and thinking are not applied.

    How can such a small segment be so prominent? So, suicide is not a problem? Oh I see, they're homos so dying is fitting.

    Good for her, I don't care. An individual's sexuality has no bearing on my own nor any impact upon my life. I don't know why we prance around thinking hetero and homosexuality really have that much functional meaning in the course of humanity.

    equating homosexuality with suicide is quite a stretch.

    Here are the points you are missing:

    1) What the Hooker study actually showed.
    2) How a mental illness is defined.

    I would be happy to show you BOTH of these, but I will be heading back to work momentarily, so it will have to wait.

    How about prevalence of consistency. In science, an inconsistent variation would be an anomaly. An anomaly of mental development is a mental disorder or illness. Statistical and inconsistent appearance at the rate of homosexuality would be considered anomaly in any other scientific endeavor. Such an anomaly would be researched and determined why the anomaly occurs and would not be considered normal variance. So clearly, in the case of homosexuality, scientific methodology and thinking are not applied.
    A statistical anomaly does NOT automatically equate to a mental disorder or a disorder of any kind. Since this is your premise, and it is a false premise, everything that flows from it is incorrect.
