    Homosexuality is not normal in the sense of being common because only a minority of people are attracted to the same sex. However, it is natural as it occurs in nature, and is found in many different species, humans included.

    For example, men who ejaculate every day have much lower chances of developing urinary tract infections than those who do so only rarely.

    So you can make a case for procreation being the most important reason for the existence of sexual activity, but that's about as far as you can go.

    Hey - love speaks the truth about gay sex debauchery. And without repentance and salvation in Christ you'll wind up in a place where there is no love.

    Re: Is Homosexuality "Normal" and "Natural"?

    I say normal and I dare say natural as well, though clearly not socially acceptable. Why? Because it's been going on since Biblical times. So, whether natural occurring or a lifestyle choice it's a behavior that clearly didn't just start during the last two presidential cycles. I mean, there's long been questions whether Abraham Lincoln was gay.

    Just saying...the debate continues...

    The "benefits" of sex are basically the same as the benefits of exercise, laughter, or any other activity which releases large quantities of endorphins into the body while stimulating major muscle groups at the same time. They are ultimately more a testament to the intrinsic value of physical activity to the health of both the mind and body than anything else.

    I also don't doubt that, pursued on at least a semi-regular basis, sexual release can have certain benefits where "maintaining" the health and good function of our reproductive systems and other related organs are concerned. That's why we masturbate.

    However, it doesn't change the fact that reproduction is basically the only reason we possess those organs in the first place.

    Re: Is Homosexuality "Normal" and "Natural"?

    Homosexuality is as normal/natural as being right of left handed. It is something you are by nature, not something you learn of are "lured" into. You are either gay or you are not. Being given a "manly" education will never change the sexual preference of any child.

    The same goes for prayer, religious/psychological conversion therapy, etc. etc. etc. that the anti-gay are using to "cure" the gayness of people. You can maybe change behavior choices but that is only making someone live against their nature, making them neither happy or "straight". Usually it will just lead to suffering from both them and their families.

    Just because we can do something that is effectively pointless, doesn't mean that we should.
    We were discussing the "pointlessness" of homosexuality existing, not the behavior. For those who are homosexual, it's hardly pointless, else none would bother. I'm sure you'd mention STD risk for why it shouldn't be done. That's why precautions should be taken, but remaining single or a virgin one's whole life is out of the question for most.

    No, a big diff between the RR and left is i *don't care* what others do. It's none of my business or concern. Irritating the way others act as if saying homosexuality is natural/normal is like demanding that only anal sex is legal or drugs are mandatory.

    Keep telling yourself that, if it makes you feel better. As I said previously, I think the primary reason why anti-gay extremists hate homosexuality so much is because it allows for having sex without the unwanted burden of reproduction, the same reason why anti-contraception extremists hate birth control and want to restrict women's access to it.

    Whether anti-gay or anti-contraception, the extremists seem to have the ridiculous belief that sex is only acceptable if the unwanted burden of reproduction is attached. Thankfully, it isn't up to YOU to decide that.
