  •  it's not like that... (none)
    It's "We don't like the choices you make but it doens't negate the fact that we love you as a person." (and let's face it folks if these people really believed it was genetic/biological they wouldn't be condeming it).

    And that's part of the problem. homosexuality is a sin to them and since most other sins (killing, adultery, stealling, etc.) are all choices we make, they think homosexuality must also be a choice.  Though how anyone would chose that and go through the pain and public degredation that comes from it is beyond me.

    But if homosexuality were to be found to be genetic or biological, then it would be a small hop to conclude that they were MADE that way by their creator.   how can god make people to sin?

    It would make their heads explode.

    Sorry, I have nothing else to add to this conversation.

      ...but you can be damn sure they'd be sinking a whole lot of money into developing a drug that would 'cure' it.

    •  A Muslim lesbian author said as much (none)
      I'm talking about Irshad Manji, author of The Trouble with Islam.  She was asked how a good Muslim could be gay and she pointed out that God was supposed to have made everything perfect, so how could anything be wrong with homosexuals?  

      The book's pretty interesting reading, by the way.  It's not so much a critique of Islam as it is a response to Muslim extremism.

      When you couldn't get a real journalism job, there's Fox News.
