    ...

    Because something is abnormal does not mean it will become normal?

    Did you really think anyone was arguing that because something may be abnormal it will automatically become normal at some point? Or was that the best you could do to cover up the fact that you were transitioning into the nature argument because you were losing the normal argument?

    Oh...you edited your post.

    It's important to remember not everything abnormal, by nature of it being abnormal, will one day be normal.
    Of course, since nobody has made the assertion that al lthings that are viewed as abrnoam will eventually become normal, there's really no point in saying it is important to remember it.

    But since people do make the claim that what is abnormal today should remain abnormal, it's important for them to remember that if they were transplanted to a different time, they'd probably get killed for their deviancy.

    Especialy when they use those claims as th ebasis for obstructing otehrs form being treated equitably.

    Yep. Yet somehow people keep on dragging it back to morality and then refusing to discuss what makes something moral/immoral.

    Ethics doesn't really enter into most people's definition of "moral" when discussing this issue, sadly. You'd think the study of morality would have more impact when people are trying to make an argument based purely on was is and is not "moral."

    I don't have to be enlightened to read that even he isn't falling for your crap.

    Then what's the point of continually pointing out what was once abnormal can become normal, it can just as easily remain abnormal?

    We all concede that morality shifts...

    And that is stupid, sex is apart of life, and some people like members of the same sex, get over it.
