    I probably should have said for the species to thrive rather than survive. It's irrelevant, as we are not going to agree on any of these things.

    No. In fact so long as they're married TO EACH OTHER, that is the only acceptable form of sexual intercourse..... Heterosexual AND as part of a committed, monogamous relationship. That's the ONLY appropriate form of sexual activity.

    Which is part of the reason this nation is circling the toilet drain of history, just like Rome did.

    So IOW, you were wrong to say that homosexuals are incapable of making children naturally and morally but you still lack the moral fiber to admit that you were wrong.

    Even in your ideal world, you'd be a low-status individual due to your inability to demonstrate the sort of moral strength required to adhere to your own moral code

    A homosexual man cannot legitimately be married to a heterosexual woman in a proper society, sangha. Your entire concept is absurd on its base. Even if he was, the moment he touches a man in a sexual manner, they're both DEAD as they have now committed Adultery. Your entire concept is ridiculous.

    It seems that there are a few things that you "should have said". You keep moving the goal posts. But in anycase I can meet each one. And have, and will continue to do so.

    Polygamy has been around for more thousands of years than monogamy. As I said earlier, monogamy is a relatively new invention. Polygamous relationships have been around since the caveman days and still thrives today. Indeed the majority of people on this planet are in polygamous relationships. In polygamous relationships the male is able to keep having children year round while the woman can only have 1.5 children per year (a woman is pregnant 9 months of the year and can get pregnant again almost immediately after childbirth). If polygamous relationships doesn't allow our species to thrive as your post implies then how is it that the human race is still here since through out the majority of human history we have led polygamous relationships?

    Not only can they, they *have* been legitimately married to straight women. For centuries, if not longer

    Now you're assuming that a homosexual man *must* have sex with another man.

    Some people will believe anything that rationalizes their inability to live up to their own moral code. It's the reason why this nation is circling the drain.

    We don't have a proper society, so that's irrelevant.

    That's the definition of homosexuality, at least as I was taught it.... An individual who is aroused by and engages in sexual activity with members of their own sex.
