Actually, CrakrJak, we might reach some common ground on this subject...maybe.
Could you begrudgingly accept that, whatever your complaints about the "lifestyle" of homosexuality, that allowing us to live lives that don't produce children so that you are unrestricted in your child-bearing choices is preferable to forcing us to live lives that we don`t want to live, produce children that we don`t want to have, and in turn lead to you being forced to not have children you do want to have?
That`s how it boils down; either I can be be free to be happy and childless and you can be free and happy to have children...or I can be forced into an unhappy child-bearing lifestyle, and you can be forced into an unhappy childless lifestyle (or we both have the children anyway, one happily, one not, and we all end up poor in an overpopulated future).

Always the point I make - so many push to have "faith" put "back" into the US Government, to legislate these "values". As they say, be careful what you wish for - for which faith will be the one making the laws?
Rick Santorum recently talked about how a speech by JFK made him want to vomit - but he fails to understand that many were afraid that JFK, as a Catholic, was going to be merely a mouthpiece for the Pope. This is why JFK so strongly asserted a separation of Church and State - so that a Lutherans, Mormons, Southern Baptists, and so forth wouldn't have to worry that the US presidency would create a Catholic state and force Catholic values upon the nation.

Old testament is just the history leading to the new one. The new testament changed the way everything is to be done. I don't get why they keep bringing up the old to attack the new, it`s redundant.
