    I just did.My wife is a neurosurgeon,who has some has some understanding of how the brain is wired.From a hormonal/chemical standpoint,homosexual have no more difficulty procreating than heterosexuals do.There is a big difference between procreating a child,and being able to raise a child.I have absolute faith that any child that my gay daughter and her spouse raises (regardless of the procreation process) will have but the finest care and loving family support any child could wish for.

    So if an infertile straight married couple can't have children (my wife lost her uterus to cancer years ago) and adopt,they shouldn't receive benefits from the government because "they didn't have kids together"?
    What if a straight married couple refuses to procreate?Should the government step in and force the issue?

    Maybe you and your wife should see a marriage counselor.
    Let me guess,the one that should be allowed to define what marriage is for everyone....is you?

    Define what the terms mean to you and then answer.
    Otherwise it looks like you're reluctant to say homosexuality is not normal.

    I have never hesitated to say homosexuality is not normal. I would draw the line at under 15ish percent to be not normal, but that is entirely arbitrary. I wonder if you realize that normal is not necessarily good, and that many very good things are not normal?

    It may take a mommy and daddy to create a child,but it takes anywhere from one person,to an entire village to raise that child.

    For 5 years I was a widower raising 3 daughters by myself.Are you saying that I should have been forced to remarry?
    My eldest daughter was already in law school when I decided to remarry.Seems she turned out quite fine.

    Here's a few questions for you.
    Are you married?
    Do you have children?
    And what would you do if you found out that one of your children was gay?

    Is homosexuality one of those very good things that isn't normal?

    I would call it neutral, neither inherently good or bad.

    So now that quiz time is over, do you have any arguments to make, or positions to stand up for?

    I looked for it on Wiki, but it's not listed as such, that I saw. Did the German people start the Easter bunny tradition?

    Hey! Quiz time is over when I ring the bell.
    Wouldn't you say that the laws of propagation of a species in nature being what it is, imply that homosexuality is, at a minimum, inherently not what nature intends?
