It’s like taking a criminal to trail, and dressing him up in a respectable outfit so that the jury will take pity on him. You’re trying to give gays an air of respectability. I think that trying to do that by showing this picture is a really sick thing to do.
    I'm sick because I posted two pictures of gay families? Okey dokes.

    Normalizing what is "unnatural"? That is the crime that you seem to find unforgivable.

    So would you consider in vitro fertilisation to be unnatural as well? That is the process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the body in a test tube. That seems to me to be incredibly unnatural by your definition. Would you argue that heterosexual couples who use that practice are just as perverse as gays? Would normalizing that practice in society for the few people who do it be as terrible as homosexuality?

    You're a troll, right? Because if these are your true colors that are shining through, I have to say I am every bit as sickened by your thought processes as you claim to be by these pictures.

    Talking to this guy is making me feel like an ass for how I have perceived members like Goshin and spoken about Christianity on this forum. This is typical Aristotelian Philosophy of the natural moral law variety that is embraced by Christians but it lacks the respect for human dignity and equality that other Christians also hold as essential tenets of the religion. I think you have to converse with people like this individual to understand that every Christian is as unique in their religion as every human being is in their sexuality.

    Don't forget Sodom and Gomorrah, and why.

    Of course if you are a Godless heathen nothing is out of bounds not even the murder of babies. Of course the same people claim they are for human rights.
    Right, so it makes perfect since that it's illegal, since all our laws come from the Bible. Oh wait, actually they specifically don't come from the Bible:

    What was your argument again?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Trust me, there are a lot of people who believe this now and do teach their children that interracial relationships are wrong.

    In fact, my father was asked by his father in the 70s what color my mother was before he married her. 4 years ago, when my husband's stepfather told my husband's bio dad that we were getting married, the question of my own color came up. And I have met several people in the military, who are around my age, 30, who believe interracial relationships are wrong, even some who have no issue with being friends with people of a different race.

    There is no way to legally stop people from holding personal prejudices, but we can and should prevent those prejudices from being part of our laws.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    the belief that interracial marriage is wrong has largely disappeared, although it has morphed into a kind of subtle prejudice in which people justify their beliefs by saying "i'm worried bout the kids."

    Bull****, no survey I have ever seen says anything like that. Please list a survey that says homosexual men by 50% or more prefer not to have anal sex.
    In 1992, a study conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only 26% of men 18 to 59 and 20% of women 18 to 59 had engaged in heterosexual anal sex; a similar 2005 survey (also conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) found a rising incidence of anal sex relations in the American heterosexual population. The survey showed that 40% of men and 35% of women between 25 and 44 had engaged in heterosexual anal sex.[42] In terms of overall numbers of survey respondents, seven times as many women as gay men said that they engaged in anal intercourse, with this figure reflecting the larger heterosexual population size.[43] According to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior (NSSHB), although anal intercourse is reported by fewer women than other partnered sex behaviors, partnered women in the age groups between 18-49 are significantly more likely to report having anal sex in the past 90 days.[44]

    In a 2007 report entitled Prevalence and Correlates of Heterosexual Anal and Oral Sex in Adolescents and Adults in the United States, published in the Journal of Infectious Disease, a national survey of Family Growth found that 34% men and 30% women reported ever participating in heterosexual anal sex. The percentage of participants reporting heterosexual anal sex was significantly higher among 20- to 24-year-olds and peaked among 30- to 34-year-olds.[45][46] Another survey in, 2008, focused on a much younger demographic of teenagers and young adults, aged 15–21. It found that 16% of 1350 surveyed had had this type of sex in the previous 3 months, with condoms being used 29% of the time.[47] However, given the subject matter, the survey hypothesized the prevalence was probably underestimated.

    In 2009, Kimberly R. McBride published a clinical report in The Journal of Sex Research which stated that changing norms may affect the frequency of heterosexual anal sex behaviors and suggests that there is a role for the exotic in the sexual repertoires of some heterosexuals" "[F]or a certain number of heterosexuals, anal intercourse is pleasurable, exciting, and perhaps considered more intimate than vaginal sex...". McBride and her colleagues investigated the prevalence of non-intercourse anal sex behaviors among a sample of men (n=1,299) and women (n=1,919) compared to anal intercourse experience and found that 51% of men and 43% of women had participated in at least one act of oral–anal sex, manual–anal sex, or anal sex toy use.[45][48] McBride and Janssen found that the majority of men (n=631) and women (n=856) who reported heterosexual anal intercourse in the past 12 months were in exclusive, monogamous relationships: 69% and 73%, respectively.[45][48]

    Figures for prevalence can vary amongst different demographics, regions, and nationalities. A 2001 French survey of five hundred female respondents concluded that a total of 29% had engaged in this practice, with one third of these confirming to have enjoyed the experience.[49] In contrast, in a 1999 South Korean survey of 586 women, 3.5% of respondents reported having had this type of sex.[50]

    Figures for the prevalence of sexual behavior can also fluctuate over time. Edward O. Laumann's 1992 survey, reported in The Social Organization of Sexuality: Sexual Practices in the United States, found that about 20% of heterosexuals had engaged in male-to-female anal sex. Sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, working in the 1940s, had found that number to be closer to 40% at the time. More recently, a researcher from the University of British Columbia in 2005 put the number of heterosexuals who have engaged in this practice at between 30% and 50%.[51] According to Columbia University's health website Go Ask Alice!: "Studies indicate that about 25 percent of heterosexual couples have had anal sex at least once, and 10 percent regularly have anal penetration."[52]
