True, but I actually prefer the argument from design. Because if you take the position you state, the only reason someone shouldn't put a penis in an anus is because it damages the anus. And if the owner of the anus in question doesn't particularly care, and the majority of people don't care deeply about the anuses of this small fraction of the population, then you're done.
And truly... the owners of the anuses don't care, and the rest of the world doesn't much care either, not in those terms. Apart from God and God's purpose you're just talking about so much meat. This meat will one day go the way of all flesh.
Oberon: “If that worldview is consistent with reality, then so much the better.”
Definitely. A community could pass a law saying the earth is flat or homosexual sex is equal to heterosexual sex, but neither is objectively true. Eventually, the natural order asserts itself.
It’s like playing with fire. Sticking an unprotected hand in an open flame is always harmful. You could wrap your hand in protective gear, but if that gear ever fails, you’ll get burned. The fire still exists throughout. It didn’t go away simply because you had protective gear on. The fire is the reality.
Spiritually speaking, it’s so much easier to simply not stick your hand in the fire in the first place, but that’s not how humans typically operate or learn.
What about them homo penguins and giraffes? I get this one all the time from the hom crowd on blogs. It is usually a case of male dominance or behavior in an unnatural setting like a zoo.
Well, I actually don’t care what people do with their anuses per se. It doesn’t harm me, nor is it a sin against me if someone wants to sodomize someone else. What does matter to me is when me or mine are told to shut up, ignore reality, and treat sodomy like it’s something perfectly normal if not admirable. It matters to me when I’m ostracized for stating what’s objectively true or my children are indoctrinated to believe a lie. It also matters to me, because I care about other people as a Christian and really don’t want to see anyone burn in Hell. Therefore, I want to give people an opportunity to hear the truth so that some might be saved. Nevertheless, I respect their right to choose Hell. God certainly does.
Let me know when you see baby penguins coming out of the butts of homo penguins. Maybe then you’d have a point.
You are also free to become an amoral operator and practice murder and manslaughter regularly, to advance your career goals or simply to remove annoying people from your life.
It's a very liberating POV. No wonder mass-murderers prefer it. (Have you noticed most of the serial/mass-killers of the last 20 years have been liberals?)
I heard of them back in the day, because Dick Dunkel rated their football team. IIRC they were Division III or something. Down in the weeds with Lenoir-Rhyne, Tennessee-Martin, and Hardin-Simmons.
Other than that .....
Indeed, the fruits of it are existentialism leading to nihilism and after that... blood.
The two interim stages are lumped together in the cultural phenomenon the academic types like to call "post-modernism." The only reason the world isn't currently knee-deep in the blood of the innocent and guilty alike is because the resulting worldview is inaccurate. Having been made by a loving God and born into a fallen world, the vast majority of us live according to our nature, not according to our philosophy.
My point exactly. I think the penguins without mates turn homo. I think its only the males.
I do have a fish that went all transgender on me. I bought two male clown fish and one changed sex into a female. She is now twice as big as her male partner. They can do that to continue the species.
“If your worldview had no faith-based philosophical underpinnings, i.e. is not firmly and consciously grounded in Judeo-Christian belief, then you have no basis on which to argue against homosexuality.”
Actually, you do.
Oh, the Christian objections are good enough for me, but even if one is the worst kind of atheist—a utilitarian—there are good and sufficient reasons for discriminating against, and even suppressing, homosexuality.
For instance, it is a mental disorder, and you cannot compartmentalize a mental disorder. The thinking of people who suffer from same-sex attraction disorder is affected by their disorder at least occasionally. This can be determined through simple observation.
The filty nature of anal intercourse makes homosexuals disease vectors. They do not live as long as normal people, and they shorten the lives of others.
Intelligent homosexuals often do not procreate, thereby depriving the gene pool of their contribution.
Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
“A faith-based argument cannot be proven, because its based on faith.”
People accept things as historical fact that are based on much less evidence.
