Homosexuality is not a choice. You cannot say that anything is bad which is not desired/wanted by a person. A person has conscience which tells him what is right and good but homosexuality is not a choice. Countless men who became gays don't want their present condition. Proof of this is that countless men who knew they are gays commit suicide and feel depression since they don't want the situation they are in.

As we all know , God himself told our fore fathers to go and multiply, so that means everybody must be straight in order to fulfill this. The Roman Catholic Church also forbids the marriage of the same sex so this means that the Roman Catholic church is not that in favor of the 3rd sex. Therefore i can say that homosexuality should be abolished from our society and thus proving that all of us can accomplish God's words..to go and multiply.

You said that God wants us to go forth and multiply but think about this. The argument is if homosexuality is right which includes all people not just Christians. Simply saying that homosexuality is wrong since God doesn't want this is fallacious. It is just an Appeal to Your Religion. Not that your religion dictates it that it applies to society (which is made up of mixed religions and pagans).

Also the go forth and multiply is only dictated to Christians, what about pagans, will they follow that from Someone they don't acknowledge? Also, you said something about going forth and to multiply as part of God's word. But take a look at it in an economic perspective, if homosexuals are not forced to make love with the opposite sex, they won't have a baby. Furthermore, if they can't have a baby it would be a good help to a country's economy as they demand will decrease so supply will increase thus preventing inflation.

Also, about God against it, according to our the scriptures, "God has made each of us in a unique way" So basing from that statement you can say that God himself created homosexuals so why did He create them if He is against them?
I leave the answer to my questions to you, my opponent.

you are therefore saying that due to homosexuality the population would decrease thus increasing the supply; and thus causing a decrease in prices.

your are then saying that pagans and other people with other beliefs are not dictated to go and multiply; but if every male in this world was gay, there would be an error in the homeostasis of life. if this would happen there would be no males in the world to help in the production of offsprings thus gradually ending the human race on earth.

And as an answer to your question, God did make us unique from one another but he did make man and woman, not man, woman and gays.

Fwahahaha

Yep I said that, just that little thing of letting homosexuals be with their true love and not the one they are forced to will have a great impact to a country's economy.

I think you are wrong my friend in stating that all men must become gay. Clearly said in my burden of proof and the name of the debate itself, "Homosexuality is right" not "All must be homosexuals". Technically speaking it is about that homosexuality is right and not that all must become gays. Also "every male" in your statement does not necessarily mean ALL the pagans and people with other beliefs because there are Christians too...

Also, yes that God created man and woman but homosexuality not another gender. It is a sexual preference. May I ask youHave you ever seen a person with a gender of "gay" or "lesbian" in a birth certificate? I think not. Yes, God did really create only man and woman but gays are also men.....but they have a sexual preference for men not women. ;D

blonde,

In this day and age, we have discovered other ways for which to procreate -- even if EVERYONE were gay (which they're not, obviously), we could use modern technology to ensure that the species WOULD continue, i.e. via in vitro fertilization. Nevertheless, as I have mentioned, not everyone is gay... so who cares if a portion of the population are? It doesn't interfere with any other's lifestyle so just let people be and accept it for what it is: two people of the same gender loving each other and having a romantic relationship with all it entails. Jeez. It's NOT a big deal.

Well, I'm not terribly invested in Afghanistan, so unless you've got a serious welfare argument brewing, then we're nowhere :-)

But the Roman Catholic Church is ruled entirely by celibate men. Clearly they are leading by example! No sex for everyone! Sex for no one! Down with children!

Xera, the Roman Catholic Church does NOT hold celibacy for life as the ideal.

My favorite is that God both wants us to go forth and multiply, AND that the Roman Catholic church is against homosexuality. Choose one, but don't use one and then the other, because the Roman Catholic church holds celibacy for life as the ideal. One can not be celibate AND multiplying, unless the RC has come up with some new uhmm math? Therefore, one stance nullifies the other.

I am neither for nor against the idea, but I think that it is entirely right? No. Coming from a scientific standpoint, it is a disease because our fitness depends our ability to survive in our environment, and also our ability to reproduce. Homosexuality interferes with fitness.

However, I have more important things to fight for than oppressing others.
