    There is a huge difference when you are refused equality and made into a second class citizen over this shunning.

    Like I said earlier there are creditable people on both sides of the issue............Some day technology might be there to prove it but its not there now.

    Yes, MOST people now agree that humans are no different than fruit flies in establishing their relationships that include sex. I'm not one of those people.
    Thank you but I am not sure I want you on my side.

    You ate insulting people to save face, that is an oxymoron. Just own up to your mistake
    Wasn't condescending... it was directing you to the OP and CC and stating beyond that I can't assist. In other words meaning I"m out of this thread.

    Another example you might think about would be requiring kids to take Christian religion class in public school. I am not advocating, I'm comparing the Idea of how institutional power has approved one set of moral judgments and removed another.
    Providing information on homosexuality is not teaching values any more than teaching information about Christianity is teaching values.

    If you're saying that all "people who are LGBT" are too emotionally involved to discuss this issue rationally;

    then that would be your belief but certainly not mine__In fact, I believe such blanket judgments to be ridiculous_

    Don't really know what you're talking 'bout - I haven't really started any threads here in months, so I don't quite understand what you're saying. My post count (0.20 posts per day) speaks for itself, I would think.... Bottom line is, I don't know why you're just bringing this up now, as I started this thread back in June and haven't posted much since....

    Having said that, you don't have much to worry 'bout me starting any "old topic" threads in the future. I hope to leave this forum permanently soon and not return, you see. I've only got a trillion better things to do on a daily basis....

    You and everyone else take care now - thanks.
