    No, it wasn't, as the meaning was clear to all who did not get hung up on it.
    Remember Bowling Green! Remember Atlanta! Remember Sweden!

It is simply one method of perpetuating species that happened to work, in large part because of the pleasure derived from it.
    Humans have long recognized that our sexual urges are much more powerful than our spiritual ones. The battle to wrest that power from women has been a longstanding testament to the true weakness of men and their imaginations.

    'Procreate' was used as a euphemism. I gave you an example. 'My girlfriend and I are going into the back room to procreate.' What are we going to be doing in the back room? Sex! I used a euphemism for reasons, but for the sake of simplicity i'm not going to explain why again.

    In my replies to you I used the Biblical parable of 'straining the gnat but swallowing the camel' as you were fixated on the use of the word procreate and missed the whole meaning of my post. Just as someone would strain a gnat out of their tea but miss the camel in the tea and swallow it. You missed the meaning of my post because you were fixated on the small detail of the strict meaning of a word. My post had nothing to do with a link between gay sex and procreation!!!! Simply I was saying abstaining from sex and companionship is burdensome. Gay people have to do this to adhere to Gods Laws. Hence Gods laws are burdensome to some. I was simply pointing out to the person I was responding to that the scripture she quoted is not true for all.

    The scriptures I quoted in my replies to you were to show you that even scriptures in the bible use words that can't be taken literally. Tying the law to your forehead and arms were not meant to be taken literally and the Jews were admonished for taking them literally by literally putting the law in a box and tying it to their head and arms.

    As you yourself said a sane person would know that two gay men cannot procreate. That should have been the clue to not take the word literally.

    I think my mistake was thinking you understood the Bible better than you do otherwise you would of got what I was hinting at in my replies.
