    Sexual perversion is still perversion, sick, and twisted within the secular religion and in all religion...in all aspects of life. Gayness is viewed as a form of demon possession by scripture and by billions of people. Some view those afflicted by gayness as suffering from an aberrant or fragmented superego wherein certain fragments are used for coping with and viewing the world around them as the result of traumatic experience, and is also viewed by many as a deviant mental disorder. Who is to say the small number of animals committing unnatural acts are not afflicted with these same maladies? Or why would animals with their limited mental capacities be exempt from the influences of evil?

      Not too long ago, scripture "taught" us that seizures were a form of possession by demons and that sickness and ill-health are curses put on us by god.
      Now we know that seizures are nothing more than your brain's electrical signals going haywire and we have the germ theory of disease.
      You may ask yourself why science is superior in explaining these phenomenon. The simple answer is that science can (1) makes predictions based upon its theories and (2) offer treatment and care a whole lot more effective than simple praying.

      Also, the belief that male-female relations are the only context for reproduction hints at a limited view of life in general. Did you know that hormones can completely change a frog from male to female and vice versa? (Link: www.livescience.com/.../...e-atrazine-100301.html) And what's more, the sex changed frog can reproduce. How does that fit into your context of perversion, sir?

      Is how one person can stand and judge others as wrong while they themselves do not uphold a standard of rightness. Perversion implies that something is unnatural, and sick implies that the unnatural activity is a result of illness, and not choice. So by this perspective you seem to have, a person can be born unworthy of peace and civility. I didn't choose the parents I grew up learning from, I didn't choose the area in which I was forced to go to school and learn by a particular standard... really EVERYTHING up to this point in my life has all been cause and effect reaching backwards for thousands of years. Where is the free will of that? This is why I can't judge your bigotry, and see you as evil for it, because you never had a choice, did you?

      Seriously bored now, it's like you're not even trying with your arguments.

      "Gayness is viewed as a form of demon possession by scripture and by billions of people."
      Yeah and people used to think mentally retarded children were fairy babies. Schizophrenia is also thought to be caused by demonic possession. Turns out some good anti-psychotics drive those old demons right out.

      You're talking about Freud who never backed up anything he said with fact.

      "and is also viewed by many as a deviant mental disorder."
      The idea of even HAVING an orientation only came about because people were gleeful categorizing anything that strayed outside of the "norm" as a mental disorder. Pretty much any malady a woman had during Victorian times was deemed to be hysteria, something they treated by administering good, old fashioned orgasms. Until they managed to figure out that the women were enjoying it and well...can't have that, can we?

      "Who is to say the small number of animals committing unnatural acts are not afflicted with these same maladies? "
      1,500 species isn't a small number and none of your "maladies" are back by fact.
