Its a valid argument (similar to the one about homosexuality)
I don't care
Cilogy is a troll
A predisposition toward religious practice or assigning meaning to specific objects or events (in different areas of life) may be genetically coded, and exposure to specific ideology may provide a preference for one official religion over another, but asking if "religion is genetic" is too limiting imo.
I said "quality" not "equality."
I was largely being sarcastic, you are free to vote "Cilogy is a troll" if you wish. In fact the title of the thread is the only thing that really matters, so you don't have to respond to my OP, just answer the question.
I think spiritual tendencies are inherent, but religion/doctrine is taught.
A person could be more "genetically predisposed" towards anything, really, but that doesn't usually mean what people think it to mean.
I certainly don't expect you to source volumes of information, just a sample of such a "war" would be very helpful. A blog, a political figure's comments/speech, anything of that nature.
I don't see anything challenging/misrepresenting/disrespecting God in the OP, so your "blasphemy" comments seem very out of place

Basically it is the "supposed war" going on between anti-LGBT and pro-LGBT people or groups.So where is this "war on sexuality"? What is it, who argues it, what are the arguments, what data is presented for either or both sides, what are the goals the arguments seek, etc?
I said "war on sexuality" because people give things the weirdest names like the "war on FOX news" or "war on porn" or "war on the middle class." They aren't actual violent wars, they are just heated debates that have gained significance because of how much they are debated and how much they are politicized.
Thus, sexuality is a debated thing, since one side believes homosexuality exists, the other side does not. So on and so forth.
I don't think many people say it, I just gave it a name for the sake of this poll.I certainly don't expect you to source volumes of information, just a sample of such a "war" would be very helpful. A blog, a political figure's comments/speech, anything of that nature.
Sarcasm and/or a joke.I don't see anything challenging/misrepresenting/disrespecting God in the OP, so your "blasphemy" comments seem very out of place
Be careful using a general framework like that, because while homosexuality is not a disorder, transsexualism certainly is, therefore its deceitful to lump them all together. There's no greater opponent to transsexualism then those who undergo surgery to make living with it easier, and most LGBT groups support transsexuals, which runs against the concept that there is a war against it.
Taking a page out Capt'ns play book regarding liberal use of smileys when you're not 100% literal/serious helps sarcasm come across this dry text where we lack body language and voice inflection
In theory, all the conditions of humanity's material existence are genetic. If you mean is there a single gene which makes someone religious, then no, probably not, and the same goes for sexual orientation. If I was going to look at religion from the perspective of genetics, I would look in terms of what kind of genes produce which personality types and how these types tend to react to and practice religious scripture.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
