    Not trying to take sides by outside of marriage they call it fornication. But one can reproduce without coitus. Anyway, carry on I'm out of it.

    So when confronted with a view that disproves your beliefs you run away from it? Thank you for proving a theory of mine. It's been quite enjoyable chatting with you.

    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.
    What's longer than centuries? eons?

    When confronted with any view that even disagrees with my own, I ignore it. Always have and always will.

    That would be the wrong definition of homsexuality. It is simply two people of the same gender being attracted to each other. The act of sex has nothing to do with attraction. If it did then prostitutes would have no customers.

    That's because even the people (or more accurately) person who advocates for a "proper society" (I'm talking about you) lack the moral fiber to adhere to the rules which govern that proper society.

    A person doesn't have to have sex in order to be gay or straight. Virgins can be straight or gay.

    I'm sure you know this. It's just that people will believe anything to rationalize their inability to adhere to their own moral code. It's why this nation is circling the drain

    The whole idea of being attracted to a member of the same sex is disgusting beyond belief, but so long as the individual doesn't act on that thought it's not homosexuality, it's merely insanity. Just as my desire to punch whichever moron in my building left the security door open all night last night doesn't qualify as assault or battery because I haven't committed the act as of yet.

    Real men don't run away or hide. They confront challenges.

    You know this. I am certain of that.

    Promises, promises

    You've said the same thing before, and it was a lie. A Real Man doesn't renege on their vows

    You know this. I am certain that you do.
