quote:Some people NATURALLY desire to 'make love' with dead people. Others...their kid or their pet. Or whatever. These 'abnormalities'/'perversions'...occur...naturally; just not in a significant % of the populous.
The fact that you go there poisons the well...as none of these things consists of two consensual adults. This is part of the problem...
quote:None of us give a crap about what you do with your sex;
If your above comparisons are any indication, it sure seems as if you do.
What does 'consent' have to do with virtue/principle, GT? Other than the principle of Free Will, as long as the choice does no harm. But if the choice DOES harm...then the fact that one consents, or chooses to ignore harm and serve selfless virtue or principle for the good of the society...becomes THE issue.
If choices are made in PRIVATE, that do no public (Principle) harm...then there is no harm and I REALLY DON'T CARE. However if issues become matters of Public Principle and policy, they then have potential to do harm.
As I oft posited, the whole homosexual/heterosexual dilemma, is really just SEXUAL. If homos or heteros base their life choices on SEXUAL URGES...guess what. Societal harm. The Bible warns against worshiping such a master, and the Secular Progressives (Hollywood, et al) seek to UNDERMINE the traditional authority of Biblical-based morality, and get rid of it in order to free their own consceince.
Bible thumpers react, not out of individual disrespect re free willed PRIVATE choices...but in defense of Biblical Principle, and the authority such has on the greater societal principles and culture.
The creation of children, the selfless love that is nurtured through the proper exercise of that act, and all the highly problematic
responsibilities of nurturing rebellous dummies who think they know better than their 'old' parents...is an education which is analgous to the God-Man relationship.
There is a lot more than just begrudging somebody kinky sex in this whole deal...homo or hetero. And spiritual folk suspect as much. That's why the won't go away. Happy families and the painful and joyful education therein takes one to a place that eccentric sex can't. That said...it's kinda like the 'money aint everything in life'...but for some...'it's way out ahead of whatever is in second place'.
Sex for some...money (power) for some...to each their own.
