    In truth, so-called right and wrong are not black and white but infinite shades of gray.
    This I was taught as a child, and 70 years later I agree, more or less.
    On homosexuality, I'd say its not normal, do you agree ?
    And I disagree that morals and common sense are "decaying", and I think people do have a better idea of what they are today as opposed to yesterday.

    The truly abnormal folks are the people who fear other people on the basis of race, gender, or sexual preference.

    This doesn't really address what was being brought up. Anal sex is (I'm assuming here) pleasurable for some men and women, but especially for some men due to the pleasure that it causes the prostate. But, since regular, vaginal sex would not provide that same sort of pleasure for the man (since in most vaginal sex to get a woman pregnant, anal penetration of the man is not really necessary), then why would that particular area "need" to be pleasurable? What "purpose" would that particular sexual pleasure point provide in procreation? This is what I was asking, since some people believe that the only purpose of sex is procreation.

    In a secular world, it is ok. But in terms of traditional Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, it is a sin. Many state that God "loves", which makes everything ok, but that is not the only piece of the puzzle. In the religious sense, you must also obey the scriptures. Yes, some scriptures have been modernized, but that is not precedent enough to change even more scripture. I have been researching different sects of Christianity, and I can't help but notice that a lot of the modernized sects seem vaguely similar to general liberalism. Those who call themselves Christians must remember that God is not tolerant of sin. Even now, I saw a segment on the Bill O'Rielly show where he believes he's a Christian, yet thinks that believing in hell as it was intended is an "extreme" position.

    If you're not religious, then the prior paragraph is incomprehendable to you. There are secular arguments that can be made against homosexuality, but I think the most important one is the traditional religious argument against it. Just because you're gay doesn't mean I hate you; I merely deem it a sin. It's not what I would deem as a high-ranking sin, but a sin none-the-less. But I suppose with my traditional morality it makes me completely illogical and incapable of being a part of the intelligentsia. No matter; thank goodness those who have religious beliefs can vote democratically in America.

    Abnormal means not the norm, so yes.

    Abnormal would be the only answer.

    To put it blatantly, embracing traditional morality means you have embraced the moral code of a militant, desert people that existed about 2,000 years ago. Illogical, no? You were likely indoctrinated into it at a young age and have chosen to ignore the epistemological question of "why do I believe what I believe?" for fear of losing your place in the group that you have come to identify yourself with and rely upon. Without said group you would struggle to make sense of the cold world in which you live. If you need proof of this, simply ask yourself if you can envision morals in a world without God.

    Your votes simply aim to reduce society to a dichotomous, teleological philosophy of virtue and vice rather than embracing an ethical system based upon simple reasoning and the natural human capacities to empathize.
