(me) Your foundation seems to be (correct me if I'm wrong) that there's nothing harmful or inherently destructive about same sex behavior.

(you) That's correct. I don't think there is. I would also disagree with your characterization that homosexuality is nothing more than a "behavior".


There you go. We'd have to settle this issue before any further discussion. So, have you read any of scripter's database of articles explaining the correlation between homosexual behavior and disease?

(And as far as homosexuality being more than behavior, that is a very mysterious assertion. Homosexuality MEANS two men having sex together, or two women. Or I guess more than two. But that is the definition!

That is your definition, which not so coincidentally, reinforces your prejudice.

You mean many of the articles written by Paul Cameron, who was expelled from the APA for unethical conduct related to improper research methods and publishing studies as factual when they were never subject to peer review? Of course, his explanation is that he wasn't expelled, but resigned voluntarily. Anyone with two brain cells can see through that.

Almost without exception (and I only say "almost" because I've not read every word of the articles, so I can't say definitively), the articles you mention have fixed on a conclusion and only seek to find studies to support that conclusion.

That's not the way legitimate science is done, but it is the way demagoguery is done.
