I found this quote online and I have no idea who said it, but I like it. "Homosexuality has been observed in 450 species, homophobia in just one. Which sounds unnatural now?"

"homophobia in just one"
The most intelligent one.

My dog eats his own vomit...haven't seen any homosexuals doing that. It's because God CREATED man to be ABOVE the animals. We have the ability to speak with God, they do not. We were not created to act like animals but homosexuals do. So sad.

I defend your right to have that opinion, but I must say it is a sad and warped view of the world.

I don't rely on ambiguous ancient free verse poetry to inform my worldview. I mean, unless it is like really, really good ambiguous ancient free verse poetry. Then I might reconsider.

It's all from God. Can't get much better than that.

I wasn't talking about gay rights. I was talking about homophobia. It hasn't gone away with the Supreme Court decision just as racism didn't go away with the Civil Rights Act.

It's never going away. There's really no point dwelling on it.

Of course it will never go away, but we can't leave it to fester and stay as widespread as it is. I hope, fifty years from now, we will have made as much progress in combatting homophobia as we have in combatting racism since 1965.

Thank you for that. Hadn't heard it before. I appreciate John Fugelsang's
"Being gay is natural. Hating gays is a lifestyle choice."

I've always liked that quote, although the number of species may be a stretch. Just because same-sex sexual activity may have been observed in a species, that doesn't necessarily mean that the individuals are actually "homosexual."

There are some

nice stories of life-long same-sex pair bonding in some animals, sometimes including nurturing & rearing of progeny, so there is definitely validity to some claims of homosexuality.

I agree, but the sentiment is good.

To everyone that thinks a person's sexuality is a choice: do you really think any animal species besides homo sapiens has the mental capacity to think on that level?

It wouldn't surprise me. Animals are probably hundreds of times smarter than we ever give them credit for.

They're not that smart. I'm not a scientist, but animals, for the most part, act on instinct and the way their brains are wired.
