    Oh good. I'm happy that at least he was honest enough to provide a definition after claiming all that time he would.

    Why is that important at all?

    We're way off the real issue here. You say that it's not "natural." So? We do a lot of unnatural things as a species. Is that grounds for denial of the right to do it?

    Singled out? It was a notable difference between the old Rome (famous for what Christians saw as perverse and evil sexual practices) and the new Rome that was being built. It was one of many defining cultural differences that were suppressed.

    I tried searching for it.

    I'm not sure why I'm a liar. I didn't see any definition of natural that you had provided.

    Oh, well then, using that definition homosexuality is most definitely natural. Thanks for the info.

    I'd say the opposite is true.

    Pretty much. So then what is your argument, mac, that it isn't "normal"?
