    I have a better idea, why don't we secular americans deport all declared US christians to the middle east and let them fight it out with their sworn islamic enemies. The US can quickly raise its living standards once all christians have been eliminated

    It never ceases to amaze me the things people say out loud. What's worse, is the people who listen to and agree with this mentality, warped as it is.

    I think that we should put all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs on a remote island and hope that they all die out. Probably a couple of the South Shetland Islands just off Antarctica would be a very appropriate place. icon_evil.gif

    Yeah, on a couple of islands, not all on one, separated and isolated by gender. Otherwise the breeders will continue breeding.

    And the irony of gender segregation would be that something known as "situational homosexuality" will occur with many of them. Those tough-talking homophobes will soon begin to appreciate George or Tom's manly attractions, the snuggliness of a furry chest, while the equally isolated women will learn the wonders of well-formed breasts. (Gawd, sounds like I'm writing a cheap soft-porn novel)

    And studies have shown that some of the loudest of the homophobes are virtually there now, even without the island. Their "protest too much" campaigns an attempt at active denial and camouflage.

    Here's what the representative actually said. Although obnoxious, it's a far cry from what the headlines of the Huffington Post and this post imply.

    "How about if we take four heterosexual couples, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist, and we take four couples of just men and put them on an island where they have all they need to survive," he said. "And then let's take four couples of just women and put them on an island, and then let's come back in 100 years and see which one nature favors."

    He's got the experiment all wrong.

    On one island we put four hetero couples.

    On the other island we put four hetero couples, four gay couples and four six-packs of beer.

    Ok if this is what that loser actually said then I'm not as offended. I can tell what will happen. The straight men will be embroiled in fighting and the straight women will get sick of them and hang out with the gay men. The gay men will have sex with them to have children and the mothers will join in a peaceful community with them. The lesbians will help in managing the community and we'll all 10 of us put the two straight men to work. HA!

    Even if we take the Senator on his own terms it's not a brilliant argument. Because it requires him to deny marriage to all couple who are infertile.

    In catholic canon law (which takes the same, broad, view of marriage) marriage is not denied to those who are infertile but is categorically denied to men who are impotent. Work that one out because in reproduction terms, what is the difference between these two capacities ?

    If marriage is a reproduction only matter, should we be unwinding the marriages of people who decide not to have children? I can't see the Senator saying yes to that.

    This is the problem with 'Natural law' arguments: just because something works naturally in a particular way doesn't mean it ought be that way: if it did, why are we bothering with curing people?

    How about out and proud gay Christians? Or gay-supportive straight Christians?

    For the record, my church has LGBT people in all positions, performs same-sex weddings, and marches with other Episcopal congregations in the Seattle Pride parade. (We also host Northwest Harvest, which surely makes some contribution to America’s living standard.) As far as I know, we have no sworn enemies. (We've had a local imam speak to us.)

    While I agree with a great deal of what you post, I wonder if in this case your brush might not be just a little to broad?

    Is RIDICULOUS. Even if ALL the fellows stranded on the island died, there would be PLENTY already married with kids to replace them, let alone some of the newborns.

    There will ALWAYS be the capacity for ANY person to be intimately attracted to ANY other person, regardless of gender.

    i read once a study about how the aborigines got to Australia, and something i remember is that you need much more then 4 couples to form a population,otherwise the interbreeding will make them a sick population, in short, after 100 years nobody will be there.

    That would work if the islands are close to each other. Like the "straight" guys could come to our island for "sightseeing". And we could bump uglies with the lesbians to get surrogates for errbody.

    I think this already happens somewhere in the Polynesians, Key West, and Manhattan icon_smile.gif

    But there would be some contention over how "uglies" is defined.

    My Episcopal Church here in Albuquerque is similar.

    Perhaps we should make generalizations about all non-religious people. However, I won't since that would be stooping to the same level.

    Nature doesn't necessarily favor anyone or anything so that is the wrong word to use. We are all well aware that reproduction requires the two opposite sexes to have intercourse. But homosexuality also exists in nature, how did we get out sexual orientation. Why does homosexuality naturally exist in most mammal speciesicon_question.gif

    Let's have him test his own idea. He gets put on an island and we will see if he dies out.

    He's a bit behind the times. A group down under already established an island homeland for all LGBT:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_and_Lesbian_Kingdom_of_the_Coral_Sea_Islands

    Incidentally, LGBT includes "bi" so there's the opportunity to maintain the population.
