I know that many Christians find homosexuals to be morally corrupt. Although last a week a friend and I had a conversation on it. I say that It is their choice to do as they wish as long as its not forced on me same as anything. While he claimed that it was wrong based on science because he doesn't believe in God. He claims it goes against the very definition of life to evolve and there fore it cannot be accepted. It baffled me but in its own way held some truth based on his definition of life .... thoughts? please keep it civil I know its a emotional topic and not all people have my view.

That's a interesting take on it. I will have to ask them that because I kinda fell silent, that too seems like well thought out answer though.
I never understood why we should look to the animal kingdom as to whats wright and wrong. Because a small percentage of the population are serial killers, does that make it not wrong? your being born examples are not potentially harmful behaviors.
speaking of using the animal kingdom as a reference, how many animals actually use homosexuality as a life long partner?
I dont know. How many?
no, that was a real question, I wasn't sure if there are actual studies done about this being a genetic thong in animals as population control.
Humans are mammals, so it makes perfect sense to compare our behaviors to that of other mammals to see what is "normal." Wearing clothes, cooking food, and futzing around on the internet are thus abnormal. Doesn't mean they're bad though.
I understand what you are saying PoeticFailosiphy my question is not meant to insult you. I was just wondering since humans are mammal and we mate life long and I know other species do as well, how many of them have homosexual tendencies?
many mammals have been known to kill the young around them to eliminate potential threats due to territory. hippo's come to mind. she we do this?
they aren't, they believe in evolution and science. They also are going to school with their major in science, so I personally wouldn't call him a scientist. Also was there a answer in that statement?
why do you think its homophobia? It doesnt seem logical from an evolutionary view?
Yes, the answer is that I suspect they are homophobes who are hiding behind science.
I don't feel you understood or grasped the concept of the question here, please try again with a logical answer and not just homophobe. Present me with a idea of why you feel that homosexuality is wrong or right. thank you.
For brevity I'll put it like this . I neither believe that homosexuality is right or wrong. You're gay, straight or bisexual, which, imho, isn't something you choose, you just are. Remaining childless is a choice, not sexuality.
I share a very similar view as you I believe although I do have homosexual friends. I don't find them to be bad people they just don't believe what I do and I actually enjoy our conversations.
thats right. they're not bad people. just doing a potentially harmful thing to themselves. I too enjoy conversations with people that dont believe what I do. makes life more interesting.
