Can't thing of one reason they shouldn't have acted as we did. To me that's the key. There has to be a very strong reason not to act when you live some one.
    Guilt, perhaps. Society has its taboos, and it's hard to overestimate their impact on people, especially as they are growing up.

    Clearly if 2 to 3% of the population is oriented in a certain direction then the other 97 to 98% of the population must bend over backwards to accommodate them !

    Sure they have an effect. But we're speaking of reason here.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Of course there is. There's a name for those little plastic bits at the end of a shoelaces. God only knows what it is but it has a name. We love to name things. Call it the curse of Adam.

    I know the scripture quite well myself. Paul never mentioned homosexuality, leviticus never mentioned homosexuality. I have actually studied under the tutelage of a person who is an expert on ancient biblical languages. Scripture that predates all the versions of the Bible definitely says something different.

    But I don't really care about your interpretation of the Bible or what you think it says or your opinion or any other garbage you want to rant and rave about as far ass the Bible is concerned. I have studied it in depth my interpretation is the only right one for me yours would be wrong for me and mine would be wrong for you.

    I grow tired of this pointless discussion you aren't going to be able in the space provided on this web sight to undo my years of study under Rabbi Ullman regarding sexuality and the Bible. No matter how clever you are. You simply don't have the time.

    Again there are plenty of Christian denominations that affirm gay people. So christianity is not disapproving of homosexuality, just certain denominations are.

    You don't have to bend over backwards. Just get out of it. You are bending over backwards to involve yourself in it. Just don't care, that is easy.

    Well we could just shoot criminals, most people aren't, but we found it a bad way of dealing with society. You could call it bending over backwards but I prefer to call it rational protection of the minority from the majority. Let me know when you'd prefer to toss that out but I know in which group you'll be found when you do.
