Come out of the bathroom and admit it. You're homonausic.

If you are both homonausic then you need to join the Bigot and Redneck Alliance Against Defamation (BRAAD). We used to have a chapter on FR but JR asked us to cease.

The motto is, "We're here. We're intolerant. And we'll kick your a$$."

Shalom.

A German zoo has abandoned a plan to break up homosexual penguin couples after protests from gay rights groups.

ROTFLMAO -Maybe this where the dems could finally crown themselves victor, gain victories, lead dumb constituents, and easily overcome any opposition -the animal kingdom?

I'm more and more convinced that there is a finite amount of intelligence in the world and that as the number of people goes up, the amount of per-capita intelligence goes down.

Close. My theory is that intelligence must be maintained. If you skip the maintenance the intelligence wears away. The greater the population, the more you wear it away and the more maintenance it requires. Unfortunately, it requires the intelligent to maintain it and so ...

Shalom.

I think that nothing about this would upset me if the broader scientific community were as upset about the threat here to the scientific process as they are on issues of creationism/ID. The threat to the species is one issue, the threat to the ability to garner knowledge through experimentation without political pressure is something else.

There appears to be a certain pattern here where if attempts to shut down science are made by gay rights groups or outraged feminists (think Lawrence Summers) they are somehow justified. Politically contingent science is weak science.

Tagline trigger, hippie!

Keep the bowl handy. I expect the flood to continue as the homosexual lobby continues to seek the acceptance it should never have.


A 55 gallon drum would probably be a better choice.

I love animals....I really do. But I sure wish people would stop trying to assign human emotions and behaviors to them.

Animals don't think and reason like people do and "what" they do shouldn't be compared to human behavior, IMO.

This "gay animal" agenda is a bunch of hooey!

Something profound that someone just pointed out to me.

There's a lesson and a warning to be had here about these people and their values system. Let's look at what they have said to us:

It is important to be politically correct,
even if the price is the extinction of the entire race.

Who are these people who sit around searching these ridiculous causes, so they can call up the activists to protest them?? Is this what their whole life consists of? Searching the world far a wide for any hint of something....... anything .......that might be construed as "homosexual"? Then call in the activists?

You're right, that IS what male penguins do. Do they not also, only mate at certain times of the year? As far as I know, and according to everything I have read, animals, unlike homosexual humans, are not completely obsessed with sex. For most animals, it's about procreation.

You are so right. We have four male dogs in the yard (2 of which are neutered) and they ALL hump the crap out of each other (except for the mastiff who is too big) But you put a female IN HEAT in there and see the difference. Have a longhorn heifer that I bottle raised and she tried to hump me. Hubby came to my rescue. LOLL

I believe that this is a mockery of all things decent. Why would someone want to infringe on the private lives of penguins, even if they are homosexual. Its these homophobes that cannot handle dealing with change to a world that is always evolving that we have to blame for utter unhappiness of these poor animals. It is a disgrace that they are forcing these birds to shed the feelings that they have to force them to breed. If they don't want to be with females then why should people force them to be.
