You could say that about *any* bill.

How do you object to homosexuality on scientific grounds?

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Feb 2013 21:15:02 GMT
Good question Minty.

Time for my favourite Alistair Cooke quote...

He said the pilgrim fathers went to America "Not so much to escape religious persecution, but because in England they were not allowed to persecute others".

Spin, can you not tell the difference between being persecuted and not being allowed to persecute others?

IN: I do not consider the objection to gay marriage to constitute "persecution".

AJ Murray says:
-"by pointing to the fact that homosexuality is not condusive to the preservation of a species."

That is not a scientific observation though. Homosexuality exists along with heterosexuality in populations and there is no evidence that it has a detrimental effect on the preservation of species.

-"I personally do not agree with either the scientific or religious objections to homosexuality."

You've not identified a scientific argument yet though.

-"I simply point out that any objection to homosexuality is to be dismissed in favour of structuring a society consisting of absolute equality in all things that profit the wealth and progress of a capitalist materialism."
-"But social engineering, as past events and experiences have shown, is actually fatal to the progress of the individual and community."

These two points contradict each other because how do you structure a society in the absense of social engineering of any form?

Terrible really isn't it. Now this law has been passed it will cause the decimation of the British population. I mean after all its not natural and purely a lifestyle choice by a bunch of perverts. Different if they were born gay I suppose but that just doesn't happen! a complete impossibility innit.

I'm not sure you're being serious. The number of homosexuals is unlikely to increase because of legislation allowing them to marry, in fact it seems to me that the numbers of homosexuals are liekly to be the same even under a regime where it wqas a criminal offence and every mention expunged from our literature.

The main cause of homosexuality is heterosexual parents.

This is not about "gay marriage" (there's two perfectly sound English words "b*gg*red" by the mores of the 21st Century for you!

It is about a universal right to marry.

Thank Goodness we elect political representatives and employ our judiciary to decide on issues that the average man (or woman) is just too dumb to make an informed and socially responsible decision on.

When I was born, it was illegal. When I was 18, you had to be 21. Recently, you had to be 18. Now, it's 16.
I can see why some bigots are worried about legislation to make homosexuality mandatory, given the thought processes of the average Daily Mail reader.

If you were gay and told you couldn't marry; you would consider that to be persecution.

I was on a flight over the Atlantic recently and the captain announced that we would be an hour late arriving at our destination because one of the 4 engines had developed a fault.

A few minutes later he announced a second engine had developed a fault and we would be two hours late.

Not long later he made yet another announcement; the 3rd of our 4 engines has developed a fault and we will be 3 hours late.

The man next to me put down his copy of the Daily Mail and said "If one more engine develops a fault we'll be up here forever!"

Because someone makes money out of it.
This explanation can be applied to just about anything which seems pointless and illogical.

psn; Those gay folk fighting for the right to "marry" will be subject to the same divorce rate as in the heterosexual population. Unles, of course, there is something about homosexuality which absoliutely secures a relationship regardless of behaviour or circumstance...

What exactly is it about the concept of 'marriage' that makes *any* relationship more "valid" or "secure"?
Or is it just a case of who can spend the most money on one day?
What about bisexuals? I think they should get some rights, like a clause in the marriage contract which allows them to go through same sex-opposite sex phases so they can go elsewhere depending on their mood. More freedom in the contract.
But for life though? I thought virgins 18 month broadband package was lengthy.
What about doing a 30 day rolling contract so instead of divorce, just give 30 days notice?
That does seem more attractive.
If you are thinking of taking the plunge (marriage) consider first a pet, it won't take the car, kids and half of everything else when things turn sour unless its got a good lawyer.

I suppose marriage is good if you are an immigrant though, so its not all bad. Otherwise telling someone you love them convincingly should do the trick.

How does your wife feel about about your objections to and disdain for marriage?

A rolling 30 day contract? We haven't even legalised pay-as-you-go sex in this country.

"What, exactly, is it about the concept of "marriage" that makes a homosexual relationship/partnership more "valid""
I don't know, ask one of the people who says allowing gay marriage has just damaged the institution of marriage.
