Homosexuality does nothing to produce for society. If the whole world were such, the poulation would die out in 100 years if that. http://conservapedia.com/Homosexuality_Statistics

Apparently you confuse production with reproduction; moreover, you and your source confuse homosexuality with homosexual behavior. Homosexuality is the PREFERENCE for individuals of one's own gender for sexual partners. Despite the government's efforts to minimize its incidence by defining a homosexual as an individual who has exclusively homosexual contacts for a period of ten years, celibacy does not "cure" one of ones' preference, nor does an isolated heterosexual liason. Engaging in homosexual behavior as a sexual release where circumstances prevent heterosexual relations also does not make one a homosexual if one's preferences are still for a person of the opposite gender. Homosexuals are a product of their gestational environment.

What about their contribution to art, film, theater, literature, music?

Oh wait, you're a rube. My bad.

Their contributions to art, etc., could also have been made if they *hadn't* been misdirected into lives of sexual abnormality.

One needs to examine each so called contribution and the circumstances involved to properly appraise its value. You cannot do that, Free. You can only make vague and general clams about alleged contributions. You prove nothing.

The claim is general, but not vague, and in response to something both general and vague:

I don't know. But homosexuals themselves have made wonderful contributions:

homosexual writers include Willa Cather, Gertrude Stein, Thomas Mann, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf, T(homas) E(dward) Lawrence, Sir Noel Coward, Langston Hughes, Christopher Isherwood, W(ystan) H(ugh) Auden, Jean Genet, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and James Baldwin. Musical artists include Ma Rainey (Gertrude Pridgett), Cole Porter, Aaron Copland, Benjamin Britten, Liberace, and Leonard Bernstein. Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, Rock Hudson, Jerome Robbins, Greta Garbo, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Cecil Beaton, Marlene Dietrich, and Robert Mapplethorpe are some of the other assorted gay artists who have so enriched our lives. We will forever be indebted to...

Also, working close to the arts, there are so many gay men and women who make many contributions who are not famous: designers, coreographers, and on and on.

That is weak response. Unless you are saying they did it for free there was some benefit they got too. Do you even understand the word SELFLESS? Talking with a person who does not understand sacrifice and true charity about being a true hero is a waste of their time and mine. They cannot begin to appreciate the difference between using ones talents and giving to the true deaths of the soul. Art is opinion and some appreciate it others do not. Food is something all hungry people appreciate.

I ate at Chick-fil-A six times last week to do my part to show support for a company currently under attack for upholding wholesome values. Eating at Chick-fil-A last week was my version of offering a one finger salute to the activists who allowed their feathers to ruffle after discovering the privately owned restaurant chain supports the Biblical definition of marriage.

With all the clucking coming from these activists, one would think Chick-fil-A contributed humanitarian meals to Hezbollah or money to a militant anti-gay group like the group of Muslim men on trial in the UK for allegedly handing out...
