    Say what you will, but you can say it to my back; I'm done with this thread.
    You expressed yourself quite well, to be honest.

    Re: Question for people who believe being gay to be wrong

    I've seen several posts that claim that homosexual sex, being incapable of producing children, has no benefit to society. Why is making people happy of no benefit to society? What is society's goal if not fostering happiness? How many of us truly believe that sex is only about reproduction? If it's okay to sleep with someone without intending to make a baby, then it doesn't matter who you're sleeping with. The result is pleasure and satisfaction, which is always a benefit to the people doing it, and usually to the people around them, too.

    many people find it pleasurable and satisfying to have sex with animals, children, fruits and vegetables, corpses, household appliances, etc. just because it feels good, doesn't mean it is OK to do it

    Saying it here doesn't make it less impactful to people.

    Oh, gosh, I'm deeply hurt that after making inaccurate statements about my posts, you then are going to pull this sort of move.

    I didn't dogpile Digsbe. I POINTEDLY made an effort to use scripture to represent my view on the subject, and I was kind. YOUR FAULTY READING AND EMOTIONALISM IS NOT MY PROBLEM.

    And, I consider this post a personal attack.

    Was your intent in pointing out a fault in his logic (which you did) or are you indicating that gay sex is wrong like ****ing a corpse is wrong?

    Basically the same thing, right?

    Does it strike you that on some subjects, people's perspectives are totally distorted.

    I.e., you equate sex between two gay men who love each other with necrophilia, bestiality, and pedophilia...Just, wow.

    I'm mainly miffed at Goshin, because the allegations he made, while quoting my post, were NOT THINGS I DID.

    In fact, I made a concerted effort to be respectful of Digsbe's faith and speak on his terms. Much more so than I did with ptif, for instance, who didn't deserve it.

    fault with the logic. I made this point earlier in the thread. i am not against homosexuality, I am against using faulty logic/arguements to argue for it.
