I know that homosexuals cannot actually engage in that behavior within their relationships, so I guess it's possible you aren't aware. If you need me to explain it to you, I will.
Child producing is not the "overwhelming reason" for marriage, but it is the overwhelming reason for society's support of traditional marriage, right alongside child raising, regardless of whether a judge is willing to admit it, or not.
If raptors are "not sexual," how do they reproduce? Rofl.
Amy, that would make the raptors "bisexual," by human standards, rather than exclusively homosexual, and does not counter what I said earlier.
Where did the baker say that? Homosexual activists typically work through the government. The baker was not shut down by a boycott, they were punished by court order and given the option of "shut down or violate you beliefs." "Phillips has not decided whether to appeal to a higher court, said his attorney, Nicolle Martin. "If the government can take away your First Amendment rights, there's nothing they can't take away from you," she said."

"And I can prove homosexuality is natural as it has been observed in thousands of species, therefore it is observable in nature." Actually, that's not true. The pursuit of sexual stimulation / pleasure has been observed in thousands of species, but only humans (a tiny minority of them) choose to lock themselves into an exclusively homosexual preference.
I don't think it's as complicated as some people make it out to be, nor do I believe preferences are as concrete as some people make them out to be. Humans form and abandon habits all the time. In Jon's case, he has glorified that habit and intertwined it with his personal identity, to the point where questioning it is immediately offensive to him. As such, he's not exactly someone I would expect an honest answer from on this matter, particularly given the political atmosphere of the issue.
How do you explain the general stability of any other preference, Amy? In all honesty, I question the accuracy of reports of preference stability in any population because they can only be tracked by statement, rather observable evidence.
How is that "out of context"? I don't need to respond to your whole comment, because your statements about your family serves as more evidence that homosexuality is indeed a social construct (nurture), rather than an inherent quality (nature).
Until there is some evidence to the contrary, I'd say the issue is pretty well "settled." After decades of searching, there is still no proof that homosexuality is inherent, but there is a great deal of evidence that it is purely a social construct. Most of the factors to the contrary seem to be the product of intentional obfuscation on the part of the biased health organizations and media. Granted, a lack of evidence is not enough to disprove something entirely, so there's always a chance.
