When listening to Elton John sing anything (even "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road") realize he was NOT born gay ! Nobody is (mygenes.co.nz) ! The fact that most identical twins (if there is any homosexuality among them at all) have only one gay twin prove this!

Being Gay does not make someone into some kind of a monster, just a member of the Human Race. I know many Gay / Lesbian people some nice some not but its live and let live for me. I am Hetro and happy with that and if someone has a different orientation then I respect that.
Does believing in some sort of a devine force give you the right to condem others?

No but living in a democracy with laws protecting free speech (but also with penalties for inciting hatred or slandering, etc) gives everyone the right to spout forth and condemn everyone else. The OP may be a grade A d!ckhe@d but he has the right to post those views regardless of how un-PC they are so long as he doesn't propose exercising his prejudices in violent acts or in areas where discrimation is unlawful and we all have the right to have a go back at him (and anyone else we feel like). Such spouting might not engender much goodwill nor boost the esteem in which we are held by others but the right of free speech is one we should protect at all costs. The fora would be a duller if more righteous place without these controversy bombs being thrown in, whether they arise from deeply held convictions or gleeful devil's advocacy.

Sure has turned into a long disscussion, considering that the initial post was irreleven to anything, written by someone who everyone thinkis is a troll. If he was intending to hijack this thread, it's worked.

Hardly hi=jacked. He started it after all and has not interfered with or derailed an on-going discussion about something else.
Also he can't exactly force posters to take part and most of have done so mainly for our own amusement and at your, sorry I mean his expense

That's what I find intriguing about this thread, the exploration and reactions to other posters views.
As for living with free speech, we really don't here in Britain compared to America where the first amendment covers real freedom of speech. It seems that someone is prosecuted every day here for racist or sexist remarks made on social media sites, not in America, your right to call someone exactly what you want is protected. You can cast aspersions on an individuals colour, sexuality or an entire religion, if you please. There are very few exceptions to that rule and would usually involve persons taking private 'tort liability for defamation' cases against the perpetrator.
I'm not sure that I agree with the 'American way' but it makes you realise what we have is not really 'freedom of speech' but guidelines on restricted speech.
Of course freedom of speech is not relevant here or on the US site, Amazon is a private company and can decide what can be published and what can be removed. They can and do move the goalposts regularly to suit economic/political needs.

gosh man of truth's thoughts on 'the causes of' homosexuality are as accurate as his appraisal of comedy genius - he is like some kind of opposite oracle : whatever he thinks isn't true.
If in doubt about an issue - check out the MofTs views, and the opposite is a safe bet for veracity.

Is anyone here yag? That's the opposite of "gay".

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Jul 2013 17:27:13 BDT
'sing if you're glad to be yag'

anyone else notice that 'man of truth' anagrams as 'talks utter p!sh'

well, it's as accurate as any of his pointless proclamations.

Well I think it's just confected controversy, and we've all fallen for it. It could only happen in a '76-style summer, where balmy becomes "barmy" very easily.

we've given him far too much time - lock it down

Yes that's a scientifically proven fact; very, very young parents often turn gay when their children abandon them. It's nice to see a coherent argument on this forum for a change.

Parents know when thier kids are born whether they are gay or not. That's why they call them Justin or Simon or Reg or Tarquin or summat.

Why can't both twins be born gay? Even triplets, quads,quintets? Although the bigger the field you will also expand the chances that they aren't all as gay as each other. Many of my friends grew up gay, but I never. My take on this is that you are a product of the environment you grow up in. If you are loved and nurtured as a child, then you may well grow into a happier person, than somebody who wasn't. Also a chemical imbalance could leave you a depressive person, and that is why Elton John dresses in such a bright cheery manner. Good for him.

What can turn a gay person straight? Reckon a night with Christopher Biggins might do the trick?
