The 'New Normal' Christianity?

I wonder if anyone has considered the hypothesis that as population size increases, homosexuality increases. Sort of a way of limiting population growth. Heterosexual activity leads to having children; homosexual activity does not. Homosexual activity has been observed in many mammalian species - perhaps it is natural.

jerry, Homosexual behavior in animal species is not what it is being made out to be. Animals do not develop romantic bonds to members of the same sex. When you see, for example, a dominant monkey having anal sex with another monkey, that is a display of dominance not homosexual attraction. The dominant monkey will then go off and have sex with every female he can find after the weaker male monkey is put in his place. Homosexual sex takes place in our prisons disproportionately to the actual number of homosexuals incarcerated. That does not automatically make those men (or sometimes women) homosexuals. They are acting on their baser instincts with whoever happens to be available at the time or showing dominance over that person.

'Homosexual behavior' in animals, just as in people-prisons, is dominance behavior. Bitches hump legs, toys, other dogs to demonstrate dominance and degradation. No sex involved, although there is an overlapping of the single act of humping in humans with both sex and status-domination that women don't want to hear about. In any event, the Leftist sleight-of-hand, as always, comes in conflating homosexual inclination with homosexual behavior. Nobody to date has recommended brainwashing pedophiles to erase their natrural inclinations -- what we do is to punish their behavior. Homos want to claim that they are completely incapable of controlling their own behavior. Well, if that's true, then somebody else is gonna start controlling it.

Well, if about 3% of the population is Homosexual, it's obviouslybtrue that there will be more Homosexuals as they are more people.

It seems to me that, if we could just renounce the prejudice & hatred, we'd see Homosexuality as nothing more than a manifestation of flexibility in populations of people, allowing them a better chance of living together harmoniously in a wider range of circumstances.

On that note, I suppose if we "let go" of our "prejudice and hatred" regarding cannibalism and pedophilia and legalized them, we'd see such behaviors as "nothing more than a manifestation of flexibility in populations of people, allowing them a better chance of living together harmoniously in a wider range of circumstances."

Anominus:
"...cannibalism and pedophilia..."

Cannibalism has easily demonstrable ill effects on people. So does pedophilia, by definition it involves sexual nonconsensual sexual activity, we don't believe children can meaningfully consent to it.

OTOH the only ill effect of Homosexuality that I can see is that it bothers folks like yourself.

Oh, but maybe those "demonstrable ill effects" are simply the result that we have forced those people into the closet. Maybe we should teach them how to cook their consenting "meals" properly and welcome them out into the world?

Who are you to judge the sexual activity of pedophiles? After all, its only an "outdated, moralistic tradition" that says that children can't give consent. There are plenty of kids out there who are smart enough to know what they want - why do you insist on taking away their rights and the rights of the adults who simply want to love and marry the children they care about?

One obvious ill effect of homosexuality is that it apparently spawns an incredible degree of outspoken stupidity in people like yourself.

The ill effects are far more obvious among those being eaten.

I see no contradiction in protecting children while staying out of the bedrooms of consenting adults, just consistency.
Anominus Wrote: Oct 26, 2012 1:27 PM
And if those being eaten have given their consent, who are you to tell them "no"?

Just as a reminder, homosexual activity was at one point illegal. There is no reasonable expectation, given the natural "progression" of society down the toilet spiral, that pedophiles will not someday argue their case before an idiotic, bleeding-heart, leftist judge who will determine that children can give consent. Homosexuals opened that pandora's box - they should greet their fellow paraphilia with open arms!

Homosexuality may be natural, but that doesn't make it normal or healthy behavior. Cannibalism is a perfectly natural behavior - does that mean humans should practice it?

It is not natural and it is not scientific. It is an action.

This is a possibility, but is there any evidence that homosexuality is a result of population increases? Or could it be an instance of correlation does not equal causation?
NBC's sitcom "The New Normal" isn't just trying to remake society for the Gay Left. It's trying to remake Christianity, which is to say, destroy it. For its October 22 episode, "The Godparent Trap," NBC ran promos with the gay character Brian in the confessional, and the priest sneering, "If you're not going to take this seriously, I'm going to go back to playing Angry Birds."

As the plot unfolds, we're told Brian was raised Catholic, and as he sits in a pew and looks around at religious pictures, he cracks gay jokes in his mind. He sees the Apostles:...
