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.
    Or maybe you just think thats the way to go, and don't give a crap about people bashing your moral integrity to serve their own needs.

    And yet if you met my mother, who is gay, the only thing you would notice as abnormal is her exceptional taste. My mother's house is decorated perfectly. Her clothes are, while not expensive, very good looking and compliment her very well. In pretty much every way, you would see a perfectly normal person. Does one or two traits make a whole person abnormal?

    Of course, I have yet to actually meet anyone who truly adheres to traditional morality. The whole stoning people to death for adultery and subjugating women thing tends not to go over so well in modern society. People like yourself tend to practice a bastardized form of traditional morality.

    CT! How ya been?

    Traditional morality is stoning folks for adultery and subjugating women. I'm more progressive than I thought!

    Where do you get this stuff? You were likely indoctrinated into it at a young age and have chosen to ignore the psychological question of "why do I want what I want?" 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 making love to a woman.

    To the contrary, I question every belief I have. My sexual orientation is no exception.

    I was raised as a Christian and I get my beliefs about Christianity from the Bible.

    If you need proof of this, simply ask yourself if you can envision making love to a woman.
    I could have sex with a woman. Sex is sex. How is that a comparison to an individual who is unable to concieve of a moral world without God?

    In that there are less homosexuals than heterosexuals only... it is not "normal" sexually, whatever "normal" is anyway. Take sexual orientation out of it and heterosexuals are just as mentally and emotionally messed up as anybody.

    I am abnormally good looking and have a perfect emotional balance... which is fairly abnormal.

    You are abnormally good at satirizing yourself.

    Prove purpose. Remember, in order to do so, you have to go to the source, the one who created the purpose.

    My whole point is that your argument fails because you can't PROVE purpose.

    No, the supportes keep asking the same questions because the non-supporters are unable or refuse to answer them. I suspect you pulled out of the theads because you knew you were beaten on logic and chose to bow out instead of getting beaten anymore.
