There is such a thing as learned behaviour where even unconsious behaviour can become a habit when recieving certain stimulus so we could probably make you get turned on by guys if we show you a naked guy and then let you have sex with a woman and repeat this every day for a year. I'm not saying it would make you gay but you would probably be turned on by guys even if you don't find them attractive.

Well, something I once read said that some animals turn to homosexuality when their species is overpopulated to even their species out.
Don't quote me on that one though, I suggest looking it up for yourself.
In all honesty, it shouldn't matter whether your partner has a dick if you don't even want a child. And if you do, adopt an orphan.
I think homosexuality is our way of evening things out again. Less children, less starving and suffering homeless ones, less overpopulation.
Not trying to be edgy or anything, I just think that's a reason.
It shouldn't even matter to you. If you want to go around waving a "GOD HATES FAGS" sign, be my guest, but just know they aren't affecting you, so it really shouldn't matter.
And if you're an atheist, then I really can't name any reason that you'd hate gays. If what I stated above was correct, then it is natural.
TLDR: Being gay is natural, in a way. They don't bother you, there's no reason to hate them. If you start treating them normal, then they'll be like every single human being on this planet.

Women with a gay child have been found to be far more fertile and bear more children. Scientists believe the gene that causes this, could be a cause of homosexuality, a woman who is a carrier passed on the gene, causing lesbianism in females and homosexuality in males. As well, women who have more male children have a greater chance of their youngest son being gay as their bodies anti-bodies feminize the embryo. Having a gay person in a family among indigenous tribes act as a close protector of the offspring of family members, increasing the chance of their survival and thus the passing on of DNA with homosexual genes. Also, look up epigenetics.

"lesbianism in females and homosexuality in males."

that's kinda dumb to say. Homosexuality goes both ways both male and female. Homosexuality means "a sexual attraction to or sexual relations with persons of the same sex"

I liked your post though just wanted to point that out.

Read his comment carefully, you will see nothing against homosexual people.

If he was bashing someone it's those who explain it by saying 'why are you straight?' or 'they were born that way'.

I agree he asked it in a rude way, but honestly I don't see any homophobia there, simply him seeking a logical explanation of why some people are gay.

"Just because" or "agree with me or you're a bigot" wont convince anyone. Science and sources are the best way to prove a point. It silences anyone making wild claims and those who show curiosity on the subject learn something. Teaching people the truth makes it harder to hate.

No. Either the government is the only institution that can establish marriages that recieve benefits, and churches must do a separate ceremony that has no legal standing.

Or churches can do weddings that have legal standing, but must do it for all people regardless of orientation.

In 1956, the nation was at a particularly tense time in the Cold War, and the United States wanted to distinguish itself from the Soviet Union, which promoted state atheism. As a result, the 84th Congress passed a joint resolution "declaring IN GOD WE TRUST the national motto of the United States." The law was signed by President Eisenhower on July 30, 1956, and the motto was progressively added to paper money over a period from 1957 to 1966.

Marriage is not a religious ceremony, and gay people want the right to be married, they can do so through a judge. Canada included in the law that religious institutions were to decide on their own if they wished to perform a ceremony. It's not rocket science and it's not the end of the world if two people of the same sex want to get married.

No one is forcing churches to marry gay couples. As has been said multiple times, marriage is not a religious in and of itself. In the eyes of the law, marriage is a completely legal matter. Plenty of people get married outside of church and never ask for the churches permission. Your argument is pretty much the same argument used back in the 1960's to combat marriage between people of different skin colors.

I have literal homophobia. I get nervous around potpourri. Tight leather pants make me shake. I have a panic attack whenever I hear the Village People. If I'm within 50 miles of Richard Simmons, I go catatonic with fear.
Seriously, why is it called homophobia

How can you trust the Bible's judgement over your own?
It was empirically written by multiple random humans. There is no godly essence in the Bible, other than information about things Jesus was merely reported to have said.
Even if I were religious, I would be wary of it.

What possible, logical thing could gays be doing wrong? Wrong is when you're hurting someone.

Besides. Even if we assume that everything said by Jesus or anyone else with religious authority in the Bible is precise, it makes no difference.
All of the quotes putting down the gays are by random people.

It's fine if you don't like the gays, but you could just say "I have an irrational dislike of them, I'm sorry about that" and try not to let yourself be unkind to anyone about it, and move on. There's no need to use the Bible as an excuse.

Well you either don't like them, or you're okay with them.
Those are pretty much just... Contradictions.

Besides.
Why do you dislike them?
If you can't give a reason for that, which you haven't, then it's irrational. That's what the word means.

And if you say the Bible, then you'd first have to go to the Old Testament, which is considered outdated and to be followed by far secondarily to the New Testament; and you'd secondly have to follow everything it says, and it says that they are to be executed, I don't think it's fair to be able to say you can take this as an excuse to dislike them when you aren't actually prepared to follow what's even been said.
That's cherry picking. And cherry picking is looking for excuses for things you do believe regardless, not looking for new things you should believe.

Since when do you have to like a practice to be tolerant of it? I tolerate fedora-wearing neckbeards but I don't like them.

It was the way he said it, he implied more.

Plus, he wasn't tolerating. True toleration would mean he didn't make comments like the one far above.

So... You don't like the gays, because people used to bully you and call you "gay"?
That makes no sense.
Besides. That happens to pretty much everyone. It's just a common insult, regardless of how you feel about gay people, or whether the person themselves is a homosexual.
I used to get called "Harry Potter" a lot because of my round glasses. I don't hate the franchise or anyone associated with it, that's just... Silly.

And no, actually that's wrong.
I was wrong too, earlier. Sorry about that, but I did some reading.
Leviticus 18 is basically God listing to Moses a bunch of things which are reprehensible, like incest and adultery and bestiality, so on. And homosexuality happens to be one of them, and the punishment is indeed stoning.
Like I said though, Leviticus, Old Testament. If you're a "Christian" then you don't actually accept the word of the Old Testament as law.
So even if you did - and I'm not saying that you personally do - use that reason to hate gays. Not only should you reasonably be prepared to kill them as God's retribution, but you'd also have to be a Jew.
So. There is no hating the gays in the Bible. Only murdering them.

Oh, yeah. That sucks. I'll thumb all your stuff up.
The rule makes sense, but is still annoying if you don't want to actually do any *****. Eh?

How does that make more sense?
What do you have against homosexuality then? All I want from you, is reasoning, hah.
I got the bullying thing, but frankly, that's pretty poor. Sorry to say it man.
You're entitled to your opinion, or whatever. Of course. But I'm entitled to point out that it's ********.

You seem like a nice enough guy, and I know that I'm much worse than this in other attributes. I never claimed the moral high ground.
I'm just... confused. I like to have firm, cognitive reasoning for everything I do, think, or see.

No. Nobody can really put any evidence for or against the existence of a deity. It's just Russell's Teapot.
But I personally think that there is very strong evidence that the Christian God doesn't exist. Because of human patterns in so many things.
Everything about God and about religion reeks of human design. Us humans are very predictable and readable like that.

But whatever, it doesn't bother me whether or not you believe in God, because my evidence isn't even nearly concrete, it could even be confirmation-biased, as the whole human design thing would be ultimately my perception. Even if I were to draw academically accepted lines between human behavioural patterns and the qualities of religion.

But then, again, because I'm an atheist and I have some bad memories associated with religion, I really find it pretty. Distasteful...
But I try not to let it get to me, because it's idiotic. With the vast majority of people, religion breeds happiness and community. Even if I think they're all wrong, it doesn't matter. Strawberries are delicious and nobody knows a single thing about achene anatomy (did you know that the individual dots embedded in the side of a strawberry are whole fruit bodies, and the red bit is accessory tissue just binding them together? Trippy eh?)...

So yeah. Despite the bad taste it leaves in my mouth, I have religious friends, I have attended religious gatherings and such. And I never even mention it unless someone else starts an argument first.
Humans are pretty silly. We build up aversions to spiders, or gays, or theists, whatever. But whether by God's gift of wisdom, a quirk of evolution, or both, we can rise above it.
If you truly accept that you are "okay" with the gays, then really just don't mention it. Move on past the content and ignore it, if you can't say anything nice or constructive.

It's like those people who start anti-theistic circle jerks, telling each other how clever they are. They're all knobs and they achieve nothing.

Nope. English.
Why?

Yeah. Exactly.
Hence why I automatically lose the right to be opposed to anybody feeling that way about, me, as part of a broad denomination as it were. People who actually take any action can go **** themselves though. The same goes for antitheists, too. Or anyone who's just... Angry, about nothing. I think it may be a first world thing. We have nothing to actually be up in arms about, but people, especially men, are addicted to confrontation.

It kinda sucks. So I'm sorry, if I've at all upset you. It was not my intention. Some of my best friends are christians, as I said, and I love them in person. It's only on the internet, which is more detached and dehumanised, it becomes a little easier to just become a dick about totally inane things.
Hahahah, yeah, I am that kind of person. Sometimes.

I was gonna point out B myself, but it's pretty contradictory as a phrase. Since God is supposed to be unimaginable and stuff.
That's a good point too, about the parents. But what do we learn directly from God, hm?
Though, my point was mostly about how everything ever written or said about God or religion, has been the perfect tool to meet someone's ends, somewhere.
For instance. The "chosen people" are always "us", aren't they? It's never "those guys". Some people pop up one day and have definitely received a message from God about how they're the chosen people and they're in charge now. It aids them.
And the way that God behaves, and what he tells people to do, are pretty much how people would have wanted to idolise him at the time and place of whatever writing, but if he were truly transcendental, and not transient, he would be more universal through this sort of characteristic.

But whatever. It's not a discussion which really holds any merit.
It's fun, a bit of exercise for the logic muscles, heh. But nothing can ever be achieved but friction.

It's late here in Limeyland, wherever you may be. So I'm gonna hop off to bed now.
Have a good one.

Why blame an entire group of people for the actions of merely a few. That is quite naive of you. Are all Germans Nazis because of Hitler? No. So don't use you bad experiences o blame others for something they played no part in. Each and everyone of us is different.

there was also the rule that if a child raised his/her voice upon their parent they should have put to death (Leviticus 20:9)

if a child hit their parent they must die (Exodus 21:15)

it is okay to murder people for not believing in god (2 Chronicles 15:12-13)

it's a sin to wear mixed material shirts such as cotton and leather

It's okay to hit your slaved as long as they don't die (Exodus 21:20-21)

Kill anyone who doesn't listen to the lord's priests (Deuteronomy 17:12)

Slaves should serve their masters as their masters serve the christ (Esphesians 6:5)

If you rape someone, they must marry you (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

Such tolerance
very god
wow

If you look back into Levitcus 18 for context, it could be interpreted that this verse suggests that you should not lie with a man in ritual practice to the false god, Molech.

Now that I think about it, that doesn't sound like telling people to kill gays. That sounds like telling gays that people would probably kill them. It sounds more like a warning than a threat.

So if we can drop that because we are now more developed and know that it's irrational, why can't we do the same for dislike of the gays?

To be honest I don't like gay people. I think a relationship should be about a man and a woman. Now I'm not going to be a douche to them all I'm saying is that I don't really support them.

many, not most. Others will say you're addicted to sex, and others still will accept you as you are.
