    Pope puts stress on 'gay threat'

    Hey ho, here we go again.
    I read recently that a persons genetic structure determines whether they are inclined toward homosexuality, if this is so, what does the HRCC expect people to do?
    Silly question really, what the HRCC actually wants is more and more and more adherents to it's faith.
    Why one may ask?
    Money comes to mind.

    Simple answer to this is to halt the ridiculous practice of banning Priests getting married.
    I can think of more than a few Housekeepers who would be delighted to assist the HRCC in augmenting it's ranks.
    There you go Mr. Pope, problem solved.

    Ha! The Pope knows more about the US Constitution principles about the preservation of the human body than many politicians around here...

    Question, a gene is discovered to incline the individual to steal. Now what? Do we must allow to this individual to steal around?

    Lets go further. A son of a drug addict is born with the tendency to use drugs. What now? Do we must let him use drugs because he was born with his genes that way?

    Hell don't know, because we have reasoning to control our desires if the desires are negative. This is what homosexuals need: mental treatment.

    I never understood why people look to this person for advice, on anything. The Pope doesn't have a clue about the real world.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    The Pope is just a guy with an opinion. As soon as he can preform miracles like Paul and the 12, I will think he is the word of God on earth. Until then he is just a nobody like the rest of us.

    How are their desires negative? And I can't believe you are seriously trying to compare homosexuality to stealing and being a drug addict.

    The real threat to him is that as more people come to understand that homosexuality is normal, non-secular ideology will take a back seat. And we don't want that, do we?

    The "ecology of humankind" includes preserving diversity and thwarting massive institutions like the Church that are bent on assimilating everyone under one banner.

    From what I've read, stealing tends to be something all people are prone to - we just learn to control the urges or are taught by parents and role models not to.

    Drugs - I think if you inject drugs regularly into someone they can become dependent upon them.

    Either way - being gay cant be caught or passed on or taught. You use poor analogies to make a poor point.

    And what makes homosexuality "negative?"

    I think homosexuals need "mental treatment" as much as they need an octogenarian with dubious WW2 history that represents an out of date understanding of the world and the universe preaching rubbish at them.

    Or perhaps you need a reality check and a slap in the face.....

    The sooner people can realize that THIS IS THE WESTERN WORLD, and in the western world we are free to be ourselves and whoever we want to be; its certainly not a crime to be gay, and its not wrong to be gay. 1 in 10 people (statiscally speaking) are gay, you know a gay person, be it there "in the closet" so to speak, or not.

    If anybody here cant come to terms with it than i recommend moving to Iran; its like the salem witch trials down there, only with gay guys.

    Human desires or behaviors can be positive or negative not only to the individuals as species but also to the individuals as part of society.

    Homosexuality, like stealing and drug addiction can be under treatment if this is necessary to control such negative desires before became behaviors.
