I agree with DCM's 12:09 posting below - and if homos are BORN that way, well, I guess then pedophiles were BORN that way, too. So don't condemn them or hurt their self-esteem when one moves in next to you, Robert1824, and starts hitting on your son/daughter! Robert1824's postings and rants make me wonder if he has two brain cells to rub together, or if his IQ is equal to his shoe size....

Persnickety, you are totally ignorant a and misinformed about homosexuality. The vast majority of gays are NOT pedophiles . Most are HETEROSEXUAL . And yes, people ARE born gay . Why would nayone "choose" to be gay in a world where gay people are treated so badly ?

"The vast majority of gays are NOT pedophiles." -- Again, you make a counter-claim that doesn't actually counter the original claim. Are most gays pedophiles? I don't know. But a gay is MUCH MORE LIKELY to engage in pedophilia.

"And yes, people ARE born gay ." -- There remains no evidence of this, and much evidence to the contrary.

"Why would nayone 'choose' to be gay" -- False dilemma fallacy. Gay isn't a "choice" per se; it's mostly environmentally/experientially rooted. The only "choice" is whether to address same-sex attractions or give into them.

Homosexuals now have a society where they are responsible for nothing, which has to support them because they are there, and in which they cannot be criticized. What is surprising to me is that there are not more people claiming to be homosexual.

Pedophiles have already started claiming "born that way"... and guess where they got the idea from!

I don't think Robert's stupid, just uninformed and OK with keeping it that way.

Interestingly, some statistics I came across partially support his common contention that abortion is driven by poverty. The problem is, it's not the single overriding factor he makes it out to be, and -- more importantly -- mainly involves poor UNMARRIED women!

Most parents would agree that protecting your children from harm and doing everything possible to set them on a path of success and happiness are fundamental parental responsibilities. From the moment our children are born, their welfare becomes an almost singular obsession. Countless hours are spent dreaming about and planning for their future. We tell our children that they can be anything they want to be – the sky is the limit! Of course, as all parents quickly realize, things don't always go as planned. We make mistakes. Our children make mistakes. Life gets thrown off course. The challenge, then, becomes...
