I've used that logic during debates about this subject. It makes sense. If there were such a thing as a gay gene, homosexuals would be extinct by now since they are NOT reproducing (at least in any great number!).
BTTT. If only I had this when I was debating someone at NationStates.net over gay marriage...
Massively informative. This is almost overwhelming.
I didn't have a chance to say this, since I responded to scripter first, but I want to say that this is a throughly well-compiled article. Excellent.
I also was unaware that the CDC was religion-based.
Ping for future reference.
Teenagers at the local HS think it's 'cool' to be Bi-sexual or homo/lesbi-sexual. This is being copied by a parent to use in sex-ed with her teen children.
THANK YOU to the author. You did a LOT of work and I'm grateful.

I'm glad you foung this thread helpful. I'm surprised this type of thinking is going on in GA. But then again in Conyers, Georgia a quiet, affluent, suburb of Atlanta had a huge syphilis outbreak which infected 17 residents and forced another 250 to get medical treatment. More shocking was the fact that the outbreak showed itself among teenseven kids as young as 12.
Some of these youths reportedly had as many as 100 sexual partners, and others say they regularly attended sex parties where theyd pair off or gather in groups for quick liaisonssometimes watching the Playboy channel on cable TV and mimicking the behaviors they saw.
Ed Reform, thanks for pinging me to this thread; bookmarked.
Coleus, thanks for all your hardwork it took to put this information together. Kudos to you! What a wealth of information.
Nic - You're welcome!
Coleus - Ditto! Thanks again!
Newer pinglist people ping!
Homosexual Agenda RE-Ping! For those who have signed up for the list recently, those who'd like to re-read, and those who want to save basic information for themselves and others.
This article goes over some common myths about homosexuality, states the truth, and is very basic information that unfortunately is not commonly seen in the media.
Good to pass on to others - friends, family, fellow congregants, employees, students, and so on. Also at work, if you won't get fired. Maybe even then.
Let me and DirtyHarryY2K know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
I would sure be interesting in knowing how many "co-twins" were a part of this study. I don't know many twins, but none of the ones I've known were unalike in their sexual preferences. Does anyone here know of any?
Really fascinating read, Coleus. Thanks.
Coleus, I'm late in hitting the sack, but I've tried finding the original articles from which these were compiled, but can't. Can you give me a link? I would like to send someone to read them at the original source. Thanks so much.
I'm sorry, this is all I have.
Homosexual activist groups pressured APA committees to remove homosexuality from the APAs approved list of disorders. In spite of the long documented history showing that therapists have helped homosexual clients reduce and change their homosexual tendencies, professionals who persist in viewing and treating homosexuality as a changeable condition are labeled unenlightened, prejudiced, homophobic, and unethical.
1) Does anyone know where I might find the "long documented history" showing that therapists HAVE indeed helped homosexual clients reduce and change their homosexual tendencies? Gays are always saying that homosexuality can't be altered because it's "who one is" not "what one does." It would be really handy if I had some evidence that gays have been permanently helped.
P.S. I noticed in Fast Fact #82 that Throckmorton wrote on article on ex-gays for the APA Journal in 2002; but it no longer appears in the archives of the APA website. Interesting.
There is currently a movement within the APA to normalize pedophilia that appears to be following the same path to legitimization as homosexuality. See Fast Facts#1-3, 4-23,35-40,41-58,77-82
I couldn't find any documentation for this statement in the Fast Facts. Does anyone know anything about the APA trying to normalize pedophilia?
More than 400,000 Americans have died of AIDS. Most of the infections and deaths could have been prevented by the employment of standard public health practices, which were in place for more than half a century leading up to the inception of the AIDS epidemic. These practices include testing, contact tracing, reporting, and closing of infections sites. These standard practices were all abandoned under intense and unrelenting political pressure from homosexual activists and the AIDS lobby.
3) What is meant by "testing, contact tracing, reporting, and closing of infections sites" as practices that were employed for many years to prevent AIDS?
4) Are these germs in everybody's rectum (I know, it's a gross question) but don't do any harm if there's no break in the skin, or do these germs only occur---- ug, what I mean is: How do these bacteria get into the rectum?
5. I don't understand this statement; isn't it just saying that Homosexuals commit about 1/3 of the sex crimes against kids? Who is responsible for the other 2/3? (IOW, I don't get the point of this statistic.)
6. Can anyone give examples of civilizations that died because of homosexuality?
How is this a surprise to anyone? Since convicted child molesters are overwhelmingly men, how is it in anyway useful to point out most of the offenders against males would be other males?
We see a lot of creative presentations of data on the anti-evolution side in the crevo threads. I suspect that a close inspection of these points would reveal the same.
I believe freeper EdReform put a lot of documentation together in revision 1.1 of the categorical index in regards to the APA and pedophilia.
Checkout one section of FR profile and scroll down to the "Dr. Spitzer" and click it for some very useful information on ex-homosexuals.
In other words, since homosexuals are 2.1% of the population, if all things were equal (if I may) between homosexuals and heterosexuals, the stats should demonstrate homsexuals commit closer to 2.1% of the sex crimes against children. But they don't - the stats demonstrate homosexuals commit a much larger proportion of the sex crimes against children.

Pinging for comments and additional documentation.
More APA links posted here:
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit Romans 8:1
Before you read any of the NARTH stuff you need to start at the beginning.
It's a long read and it may take you a few times to get through it, it did me, but you have to understand this before you can go on. Ed probably gave you this along with others but it's important you start here.
Ed, I must have missed your ping the first time.
Yes; I read about this somewhere....I may have FReepmailed something about this even to little jeremiah and ed reform....it's at or mentioned by a pro-pedophila site...I can't remember the name right now....and won't be able to get more specific information until I get home tonight. Ed or jeremiah.....do you recall the website I FReepmailed you to a few weeks ago?
This is true to an extent. A small number of psychiatrists formally brought it up in the either 2002 or 2003 annual convention but it was aggressively turned down. Homosexuality was and still is in the opinion of many psychiatrists still at the APA paraphilic disorder along with bestiality, pedophilia, transgenderism, etc...
Oh Scripter, I feel like such a dunce. Now I see!! Thank you.
Also thanks for the links in #87.
I wonder if you're talking about that man-boy love association. Thanks, Nic.
Really!? I hope I can run across some documentation on that little fact! Wow.
A Hundred Years of Pedophilia
...But up to that point the legitimization of pedophilia appears only in innuendo, hidden among general demands that bring it along as implicit consequence.
In 1981, however, Time announces that arguments pro-pedophilia are becoming popular among sexual counselors. Larry Constantine, a family therapist, proclaims that children have the right to express themselves sexually, what means they can or cannot have sexual contact with older people. One of the authors of the Kinsey Report, Wardell Pomeroy, pontificates that incest can sometimes be beneficial.
On the pretext of fighting discrimination, representants of the gay movement are authorized to teach in schools the benefits of the homosexual practice. Whoever opposes them is stigmatized, persecuted, fired. In a book praised by J. Elders, ex-secretary of health of the US (the surgeon general that same one who makes apocalyptic warnings against smoking), the journalist Judith Levine affirms that the pedophiles are harmless and that the sexual relation of a boy with a preacher can even be a beneficial thing. Really dangerous, says Levine, are the parents, who project their fears and their own desire for infantile flesh on that mythical molester of children.....
