    You keep holding your breath, Moses. I'm sure God will get to you once she's sorted out disease, famine and war.



    In the meantime, there's that much more poonanny for the rest of us.

    And for those that decided that this was an appropriate forum to express your views on sexual preferences, perhaps a review of yourself and the remarks that you made should also be edited or removed.



    After all, this is one of the best sites for APPLE NEWS. I would like to see it continued



    If you continue, you are going to kill it.

    You might not believe in Evolution...

    I myself am a protestant Christian who has many friends who are gay. For a long time I struggled with what to think, questioning whether they would spend their eternities in hell. At long last, I deemed that it was not for me to decide. Jesus charges us to "Love one another as we would want to be loved." So I leave the judgment to God and work on better loving my neighbor, gay or straight.

    That's as good an argument that is "pro-religion" as I've ever heard. Tolerance is always sensible, and your religion or lack thereof need not be challenged.

    I have no problem with evolution. I do believe that changes happen over time. However, evolution doesn't explain the origins of life, and one species spontaneously becoming another species is statistically impossible.



    And to get back to the topic at hand, homosexuality could not have arisen by way of evolution. It goes against the whole premise of Darwinian theory -- that traits that cause a creature to procreate more are adventageous, whereas traits that cause a creature to NOT procreate are disadvantageous.

    Here you go!



    She's a little on the young side, but you seem like the patient type. Think about how much hate she'll have accumulated by the time she's grown up.

    This is what happens when AppleInsider risks mixing "short", utterly unrelated articles into one big lousy mess.



    I've complained about it, and seriously... does it take that much more effort to post single article threads?



    The popular threads will continue and the lesser articles will fade quickly.



    Please stop mixing clearly politically incendiary stories with plain-Jane tech reporting!

    I'm over simplifying a bit but I think you get the point.



    No, I think it's just absurd. Non-discrimination is not about religion. In the past, certain segments of the religious that justified slavery, jim crow and tried to stop and antagonize interracial marriages in the name of their deity, though I think it's using the name in vain. Would you say that stopping that sort of attitude violated the separation clause?

    If this is in reference to my comment, it was in response to a pornographic image that was previously posted and has been removed.



    Incidentally, the originator of that image posting has been banned from this forum for life.



    Remember the adage: Forwarned is forarmed.

    Actually, there are many theories floating around that homosexuality in nature is just nature's population control (for example: mating between same gendered pairs of penguins increases when regions become too populated).

    I did not mean you, I'm sorry if I was that vague.

    It's a question of right or wrong. To compare that to being black would mean you would have to ask the question if it was wrong to be black. But homosexuality is a behavior, and there are differing opinions as to whether that behavior is right or wrong.
