    What happened bro? I don't have to agree with everything but don't worry I won't be holding any picket signs against LGBT anytime soon
    You just seem very inconsistent, that's all. No you don't have to agree with anything, nor disagree.

    I just thought you seemed much better than the comments you made.

    If additional factors include children being born with birth defects, incest couples can always adopt. Forgive me if I'm being offensive. What I'm trying to get across is in Russia + African countries, homosexuality is against their customs and their "way of life". In the UK, incest couples is not part of "way of life" and scold upon. If you took a gay couple in a African country, they would be scold upon and even thrown in jail. In some African countries and tribes, marrying your sister or brother is normal while two men marrying each other is not, and repulsive.

    It doesn't make sense to imprison gay people in Russia since its not harming anyone but it goes against the traditions and customs of a society that is traditional.
    It includes the child dimension, of course. However, the other issues do not link the dots.

    I don't need the point to be made though - I get it. My argument all along has been that they simply aren't strong enough to validate a ban. Not that they don't exist. Leave it now, please - post generally if you want but stop directing the comments at me because this debate has been done to death now.

    Just pointing out, I said there is the "idea" that the population would die out. I never said it's my idea, nor did I say I agree with such an idea. I am acknowledging the reality which is that people out here think like this as a preemptive way to address my opponent's perspective.
    And all my point was, was that it isn't a strong enough argument to validate anything. It's an absolutely laughable idea.

    What am I inconsistent about, and what has made you deem me "better?" I have barely spoken on this matter, much less with you. The only thing I can think of is the double standards thing with BlueMason. And yes I agree people need to be consistent because otherwise they are resorting to "repulsion" and hatred and it discredits the entire perspective. Or they haven't figured out what they think about LGBT and are just arbitrarily defending them. And all I said here was that the obvious issue with homosexuality is the inability to have kids....that is just a scientific fact. It's not ...homophobic or bad to point this out, and if I do, how am I all of a sudden a bad person or not as good as you "saw me" or whatever? Like wow. I'm a bad person because it's common sense that you can't have kids as a homosexual? :\ I did also point out they can find ways to have kids...so it's not ignorant...

    You have misunderstood me.

    The argument that kids cannot be born to homosexual couples through the conventional methods is not inaccurate. However, it is also not even remotely plausible to use as an argument about bans.

    I never said it was a reason to ban. I never even said the word ban lol I am just pointing out MY main issue with it, and that is the no having kids naturally thing. I supported this being my valid issue by stating how science AND religion BOTH confirm this inability to have kids while living homosexual. And it's not...yes you're right not inaccurate. But I never said ban. I now realise the thread is about banning lol but ok. We gotta discuss this later because I need to go but if you want pm me or something, I'm not done with this but I keep being bothered. :\

    As you said by the end of this post - the thread is about a ban and reasons for it.

    Why you have an issue with the natural conception dynamic, I won't ever be able to fully understand.

    If you want to, go for it.

    OK! My wifi did something stupid and I couldn't get in here but you're not off the hook. Let me remember everything I wrote before....
    Right. So the human population thing. People who can have kids but who so choose not to aren't not having kids for the sake of the Earth not being "too full." They're doing it for the sake of their hands not being too full and keeping their wallets full, the gov't included. So I don't buy the whole, "it's beneficial to not have kids because of the population being too high." Aside from religion, which in my religion, states even in the 10 Commandments (which is like one of the 1st things you'd see cracking the Bible open) to be "fruitful and multiply" because our children are too God's children. But aside from that, my opinion and many others' is that those who CAN have kids but who choose NOT to are simply being selfish, and like China's 1-Child rule, that was just murderous and insane and I think they've since ended that? This all of course is IRRELEVANT to those who CANNOT have kids, because they won't be opting to NOT have kids as they have no choice and they also are not adding to earth's "too high" population, just in case you try to that as a rebuttal. Ah wait what do I see here, how predictable, you already have :rolleyes: So anyway, in conclusion and in short, not having kids WHEN YOU CAN is wrong for the simple factor of selfishness, also referencing what certain countries have done to try to stop reproduction. This obviously does not include those who can't even produce if they wanted to.
    Overpopulation is a grave concern for the future of humanity. Those who choose not to have children are not being selfish on any objective level. "Be fruitful and multiply" comes from the word of men who, thousands of years ago, may have felt that (probably due to the circumstances at the time) more people were needed for agriculture, armies, missionaries, etc.

    Also, what's wrong with not having kids because your "hands" are too full? Many couples work in jobs which mean they wouldn't have enough time to devote to children in any meaningful way. As for "wallets", do you really think it's helpful for couples to have children when they cannot afford to?

    My view is that any God who proclaims "be fruitful and multiply" regardless of the current circumstances of a civilisation is, frankly, negligent.

    More general in how homosexuality should be acceptable and incest should not. But yes, in essence.

    All those who say incest is disgusting while ignoring the same reasoning as that which justifies homosexuality.

    Man... I gave you an in-depth answer to how incest and being gay are not the same. You didn't even reply. Your argument is rubbish, come on.

    Umm, well I guess you could argue it is kind of different from an evolutionary perspective, incest would cause inbreeding which would not only cause any offspring to have genetic abnormalities, it would also decrease the genetic diversity of a population thus reducing their fitness which would work against them.

    Homosexuality does not produce any offspring naturally thus could be considered as evolutionary 'irrelevant' or as a genetic dead-end assuming the homosexual relationship is exclusive between two people of the same gender

    There is a reason why humans are wired to be attracted to those whose pheromones are different from our own and our families

    Same with homosexuality.

    What is the same with homosexuality? Homosexuals can't reproduce naturally unless they have intercourse with a member of the opposite sex
