Homosexuals aren't discriminated against in employment, so why should they be a protected class? * The average yearly income of a homosexual is $55,430.00 (most of which is disposable because no children to take care of!). The average of the general population is $32,144.00. The average of blacks is $12,166.00 (24) * 59.6% of homosexuals are college graduates. 18.0% of the general population are college graduates (24). Too bad they aren't smart enough to listen to God. "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:22) * 49.0% of homosexuals hold professional/managerial positions. 15.9% of the general population hold such positions (24). Where's the job discrimination?

They are smarter than the average joe. Intelligence and homoeroticism are correlated. Therefore, to protect the moral fiber of society, we should insist on making people less intelligent. No guarantee at the level of individual decisions, but statistically speaking we would reduce the rate of homosexual thoughts and acts. Of course, we would have to do with fewer Wittgensteins, Turings, Nashes, Whitmans, de Vincis, etc., etc. (isn't this boring?), but think of the aesthetic gains!

Thoughtless posts like yours by contrast make Sinkspur’s knee-jerk Republicanism a welcome and refreshing relief.

exton, your argument is specious at best. if none of those artists would have been born, a different human would have taken their place. now if you think differently, remember that everyone is replaceable on the macro level. btw, how do you feel about abortion and the thousands of geniuses that have been murdered before being allowed to fulfill their potential? do we miss their work? i think not.

You got it ass-backwards, (so to speak). If homosexuals were to curtail their risky behavior, there will be more of them because they won't be dying off from AIDS, hanging and suffocation from having jockey shorts stuffed in their mouths.
