    Wait - outlaw a disability/disease? Damn you sound stupid!
    Yeah, but if you think there's outrage when people talk about outlawing it, you should hear what happens when people suggest curing it.

    Which leads me to think that scientific studies on sexual attraction in homosexuals are required, if for nothing more than idle curiosity.

    Let me check. Breathes oxygen? Check. Red blood cells? Yep. Communicates with the same sounds as everyone else? Mmhmm. Subject to all the same psychological and emotional stimuli? Big yes.

    Looks pretty normal to me.

    I do not know that it is a good idea to "cure" people who have been alive for many years and already have developed a personality and a sense of who they are. Are you sure people would be as outraged at the idea of targeting homosexual genes in children?

    1. neither of those positions has anything to do with the claim that the government should outlaw the abnormal.

    2. Islam is here to take over the world. So is Christianity. it's sort of in their founding creeds. Judaism isn't because it's largely inward-looking and defined to a certain tribe, but Islam and Christianity are both openly universalistic. Islam even claims that all people are - in fact - apostates, as they are born Muslim, but convert to other faiths as they age. hard to get more universalistic than that.

    That's the next step. Gay genetic screening. Dear god.

    Considering my Apostolic/Pentecostal Christian religion, no. I believe we all sin from the whitest lie to the largest massacre. Do I believe it's a sin? Yes. Abnormal? No. Why? Sin is normal to us humans, in my opinion.

    Though some of the things gay pro-gay activists do are somewhat odd, as in parading down a street in lime-green Borat-like speedos.

    When humans evolved from apes, the sexual cues that males got from females had to evolve, and it is strongly suspected this is why women have enlarged breasts. The enlarged breasts are shaped(vaguely) like buttocks. This all happened fairly recently in evolutionary terms. Changes in sex drives and what people find attractive do change evolutionarily, and evolution can account for homosexuality.
