I don't think children should be exposed to religion.

You know, when I first read this, I misread "Rabid Homosexuality" as "Rabbid Homosexuality". I would now like you all to picture gay Ravin Rabbids. After you've done that, you won't be able to read any further.

Did you just question the holy dogma that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice? Turn or burn!

Please verify your claims with facts before speaking on Mental Illnesses.
Also Fixing Time!
I don't believe a child should be exposed to a couple of people suffering a mental disorder. Rabid Religious Indoctrination is a disorder of nature, a product of a diseased mind. It's a disease that should be fought against, not normalized and imprinted into a child's mind as "okay". (Mind you, I don't speak of individuals who possess this temptation who are actively fighting against it). It's a corruption of the mental processes. Then again, most fundie fucktards are suffering from various disorders themselves.

There can be no 'disorder of nature'. Nature is what it is, whether you approve of it or not. It's only because you and your sad ilk have the insufferable arrogance to assume that you are somehow above and beyond nature (thanks to that work of fiction you use to avoid thinking for yourself) that you have such a problem with homosexuality, which is clearly, irrefutably natural (otherwise it wouldn't exist in nature, which it does)

I read about the afterlife
Hmm, should I trust Pyschologists on this issue or Apollo5600? Yeah, I'm going to have go with Pyschologists as they have a degree in pyschology whereas Apollo pretty much just wallows in his mother's basement having decided that an 8th grade diploma was enuff skoolin' for 'im!

Yeah, I agree that children shouldn't be exposed to people who suffer from rabid homosexuality. But... what about the much more common, non-infectious variant of homosexuality which doesn't result in encephalitis ?
Alternatively : heh, I always thought that homosexuality was a sexually-transmitted disease. I didn't know it actually spread by biting. All those werewolf metaphors makes much more sense for me now.
11/9/2010 5:23:03 AM
Oh fuck off. Rabid homosexuality. I mean really. WTF?

I don't understand why they think that homosexuality is a "temptation." I've never been tempted to have sex with a man. Maybe they're closet cases who are struggling with what they view as "temptations."
11/9/2010 6:29:26 AM
Anyone who disagrees with me is obviously insane/retarded/has a mental disorder!
Dur de dur!
I hate these people with a passion.
11/9/2010 6:34:17 AM
Let me guess...to you, a "mental disorder" is anybody you don't like, or who disagrees with you?
You're fine with "imprinting on a child's mind" that people with different lifestyles are less deserving of the same rights.
You only tolerate gays who hate themselves as much as you hate them?
...and you think that it's the liberals who are suffering from disorders?
11/9/2010 6:41:17 AM
So how long have you been fighting those "temptations"? We're on to you, Apollo.
11/9/2010 6:42:11 AM
Yeah, we liberals have all kinds of disorders, like acute anxiety at seeing sick people go without medical care and rich, fat old men rigging elections, gaming the system and removing all of the regulations that have kept our economy from going into freefall from the time of the Great Depression until they got their filthy, greedy hands on things. Oh, wait, that's normal, isn't it?
11/9/2010 6:51:57 AM
Nice group of sweeping generalizations there jackass.
Also, "I don't believe a child should be exposed to a couple of people suffering a mental disorder."?
So you wouldn't let your kids near anyone with ANY mental disability? Even like sever autism or downs? Wow, feel that Christian lurve!
11/9/2010 6:58:31 AM
Yeah, this approach is what killed Turing.
11/9/2010 7:04:32 AM
So...You guys ever going to get around to deciding whether homosexuality is a mental disorder or a sinful free choice? Huh? Your god whispering any clarifications in your ear? Think maybe he could clear a little up? make things easier on the noggin? huh?
Nah, thought not.
11/9/2010 7:08:04 AM
Killing double post. Sorry.
11/9/2010 7:10:23 AM
"(Mind you, I don't speak of individuals who possess this temptation who are actively fighting against it)"
Nice way not to include yourself there.

Okay, so, when people are bigoted or their logic is just plain wrong, I'm usually still able to see where they're coming from; even if their conclusions aren't right, I can at least understand how they arrived at them. However, I have repeatedly seen this particular argument against homosexuality--both online and off--and every single time, I'm unable to understand the line of reasoning behind it.
It always seems to boil down to this:
1. Homosexuality is bad because it is a mental disorder.
2. Homosexuality is a mental disorder because it is bad.
3. Ergo, homosexuals should have X rights stripped away from them.
I don't get how anyone of sound mind could fail to see why this is wrong, yet very many sane and otherwise rational people do fail to see it. I genuinely find this unsettling because it suggests a gross lack of critical-thinking skills and basic human compassion among the general populace.
First of all, points one and two are clearly an example of circular logic. Point three also suggests that the mentally ill should be treated as second-class citizens or denied any so-called "special treatment" or "special rights" that would allow them to live a happy life and function in society. (And if you don't understand why that is wrong, you're truly a lost cause.)

"I don't believe a child should be exposed to a couple of people suffering a mental disorder. Rabid Homosexuality is a disorder of nature, a product of a diseased mind."
Homosexuality, "rabid" or not, occurs throughout nature and across species thus it is, by definition, "natural."
Religion, on the other hand, actually is found only in humans and, therefor, actually could be described as unnatural. Given your apparent aversion to all behaviors that are unnatural, I believe you should not only be an atheist but you should also begin your attempts to have children removed from, or prevented from being placed with, religious parents.
"It's a sin that should be fought against, not normalized and imprinted into a child's mind as "okay"."
But that's exactly what it is, as I just pointed out: a perfectly normal state for a certain percentage of a given population in quite a few species.
"(Mind you, I don't speak of individuals who possess this temptation who are actively fighting against it)."
Those are the dangerous ones you should be talking about. Repression of one's sexual identity isn't a good thing and can lead to all sorts of problems.
"It's a corruption of the mental processes."
Ah, so you have the research to back this up do you? Because the APA hasn't had it listed as a mental illness for thirty years or more because they actually did research it and found the idea to be fucking wrong.
"Then again, most liberal straight people are suffering from various disorders themselves."
Yes, all that toleration for people different than us along with wanting to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and equally are obviously signs of severe mental disturbance.
11/9/2010 7:42:58 AM
Fuck you. Keep your sick/twisted/demented religion off my rights.
11/9/2010 7:58:25 AM
Another idiot who doesn't know what words mean, part 25342.
11/9/2010 8:12:37 AM
Just one theological point: If homosexuality is a mental disorder, how can it be a sin?
