    You come into the thread and state, amongst other gems:

    It is a twisted and sick thing that should be confined to the shadows and not see the light of day, like many other nasty sexual orientations (pedophilia, zoophilia, necrophilia etc.).
    And now you feel persecuted? Wow.

    Oh please. Thinking someone is full of it plays no role in moderating the forum. Frankly I don't remember your name ever coming up as a member to be watched and/or banned. Your views are way too extreme and based on internal moralistic values that have no real world value to even warrant serious responses. You can believe gays should be condemned, shunned, pitied or killed all you want, just don't attack members or break other forum rules. Know that your views, which many will find vile, will not be protected though.

    Yeah, well, i'll let that speak for itself and enjoy the fact that I apparently won't enjoy the right of being protected by forum moderation like everyone else.
    Like I said earlier, someone needs to stand up to this bullshit.
    I'm not sure if you agree with me, but thanks.

    Now, this does not mean that I hate any or all gay people. I pity the poor bastards that they weren't born right in the head, or were made such by their environment.
    Not sure it can even be "cured", since that doesn't seem to help with any other sexual orientation, either. So I guess it must exist, but it does not mean that it is good.
    Many other unhealthy variations of behavior exist, as well. Some of them are punished while others have been commercialized and forced upon people by liberal media and immoral politicians.

    No, screw this. I hate thinking about it, because I feel like i'm trying to fight the tide with a willow switch. Or windmills...


    I voted: "Should not be given" and "Could tolerate gay couples(in secret, unofficially), but can't tolerate gay marriages(since it is neither normal or could ever be equal to the holy sanctity of marriage)".
    Let's turn this into something instructive: Your post illustrates what can happen when decisions are made with nothing more than a personal belief system—like slamming an airliner into The World Trade Center on 9-11-2001.

    Members can benefit from your post since it flies in the face of those who would like others to think that given a single paint brush, those in the same MBTI type would all paint the same picture.

    I'm strongly for gay marriage since discrimination isn't a perspective I support. Who really cares what two consenting adults do in their bedroom?

    I do question homophobics and subscribe to this study. Arousal doesn't lie, unlike homophobics:

    The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.

    I remember posting a thread on gay relationships, before it spiraled beyond my ability to keep up with it. I'll try to follow this one.

    For the record, a consenting homosexual relationship/marriage is OK in my opinion.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
