    True, while we haven't found a "gay" gene, it is extremely unlikely there is one. There are probably numerous genes that working together create that trait. Genes that also do other things. Saying there's no gay gene is like saying there's no gene for height which would be correct as there is a concert of multipurpose genes that control one's height. Doesn't mean we aren't coded for it.

    The notion that it isn't genetic is somewhat absurd given electroshock experiments. Once the treatments stopped, people went back to being homosexual. Essentially they curtailed the behavior our of fear, but once the fear removed, nature went back to normal.

    I've spent the past 8 years working on a project with the Houston Mayor's Office, starting with Lee Brown. You know what they say about assuming.

    LDS apostle: SLC gay-rights measures could work for state - Salt Lake Tribune

    At a public hearing Tuesday, church spokesman Michael Otterson expressed strong support for ordinances that, starting in April, will ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in housing and employment. Salt Lake City, home to the worldwide faith's headquarters, approved the statutes in a unanimous City Council vote.

    I was saying that generalizing all people of a political lean is stupid. Its like me telling you that "all conservatives are dumb" which is false and is an unnecessary extreme.

    That only thing that you emboldening the word "liberal" on my profile shows me is that you can read. Good for you.

    Wasn't the LDS the one's who brought us Donny Osmand and Osmand Brothers?

    I will never forgive them for that.

    Yea, that was the biggest screwup in the history of science. Scientists DID find a purple gene in some people, and attributed it to gayness, when it was actually a desire to be royalty.

    They didn't care in this election. Just roll with it.
