    Could you imagine a female elephant letting some horny bull elephant clambering all over her if she didn't get some enjoyment out of it?

    Can you even begin to imagine what a pair of brontosauruses had to do to make broto-eggs? Would they have bothered if they didn't like it?
    If sex were only for reproduction, all animals would be repulsed by pregnant females, or there would always be some mechanism to avoid wasting energy on having sex with them. For some animals, this is called being "in heat," but humans and some other animals have no such mechanism. Sex has social functions, especially in people, dolphins, and bonobos.

    Even though I feel it is wrong for the US Federal or State Government to deny homosexuals the same basic rights as married couples, I also (for religious reasons) will not support it in any way.

    I have no problem with civil unions, but two men or women do not make a marriage as I see it. Semantics, I know. But it is my opinion and that is what counts most when I vote.
    Another example of why you can't rely upon democratic processes to ensure minority rights.

    Interesting.
    Uh, the moderators don't have to agree with you to be fair to you.

    I used to not care one way or the other, but 'gay activists' have become so obnoxious and petty I would make it a point to vote no, just because of the annoyance factor of their insipid whining alone. They are actually an affluent demographic, hardly in the same league as black Americans, so another major annoyance is the constant ludicrous comparisons with racial discrimination, and of course they aren't even remotely in the same league.

    I might make an exception for lesbians, since they as a group played a key role in finally running the pedophiles out the 'gay rights' movement, with little or no help from male activists, and they aren't nearly as juvenile and snotty in general as male activists.

    Only two options are given as that is how an election would work.
    There is a third option - abstention - and it's the one I'd use.

    I probably wouldn't be able to vote for gay marriage, but I wouldn't vote against it. When I came to that space on the ballot, I wouldn't mark anything and move on to the next question.

    The only thing that can guarantee any right is the threat of force. As much as I love the Constitution, it is still nothing more than a piece of paper with no force to back itself up without either the people or government.

    No form of government is perfect, but our form of democracy (Representative Republic) at least gives everyone a voice.

    100% of joko104's posts are negative towards homosexuality with NO substantiation. Now that we have thrown out some irrelevant percentages, do you have anything of substance to contribute?

    Or was it 99.8%..?

    BTW, though I will retract my comment referring to those who argue that homosexuality is not natural are fools, I stand by the fact that this is a fallacious position. And, as my migraine is only marginally better, I will debate this will you, tomorrow, hopefully. However, a good start, so that I am clear on what YOU mean, would be for you to tell me how you would define "natural".

    First of all, I appreciate your retraction.
    It's easier to debate with someone who doesn't immediately call you a fool for having a certain opinion.

    Now, to the definition, I will quote parts from replies I posted in this thread.

    Post #49:
    Your analogies are way off the line.
    By unnatural I've meant that homosexuality prevents the couple from reproducing their genes and creating new lives.
    It is bad not simply because it is unnatural, but because it damages the circularity of life.

    Post #39:
    In nature, you need both a male and a female for reproduction.
    Reproduction is the continuance of life.
    A gay couple cannot reproduce.
    And that's why homosexuality isn't natural.

    Post #60:
    This is not reproduction.
    Homosexual couples cannot reproduce because they're from the same gender.
    If two lesbians go to the sperm bank to take a sperm from some male, and then use it to create life with one of the lesbian's ovum, the other lesbian's genes would not be transferred into the created life.


    And this basically sums that up.

    As homosexuality is an observable trait in many different species, the position that it isn't 'natural' is incorrect. Homosexuality is perfectly natural. Claiming that it is not is akin to me saying, "rearing children to adulthood is unnatural"; or even better, "mongamy is unnatural". The scientific evidence supporting these two claims would be shaky at best. Same with homosexuality as being 'unnatural', as all scientific evidence points to homosexuality as being perfectly natural.

    What does that mean?

    By natural I have not meant that animals do not partake in such acts, as I have already known that for quite some years.
    By natural I mean to life itself, what religious people would call "God's creation" and I simply call 'nature'.
    Life couldn't continue if all animals were homosexual, could it?
