    The percentage of pedophiles in the priesthood is similar to the percentage of pedophiles that are Protestant ministers or males as a whole. It's about 3%. Now, the percentage of homosexuals in the priesthood is probably higher than the percentage of homosexuals in the general population. There are men who become priests to squash their homosexual thoughts.

    The ark story has a purpose. Of course it's not literally true (the Tasmanian devils from Australia are the bigger problem. Penguins at least live as far north as the equator). The flood story has a lot of symbolism, part of which is the promise that it will never happen again, and part of which is the foreshadowing of baptism for removing sins (instead of the flood as a way to eliminate sinners).

    I raised two kids, and I never once told them they are an abomination to God or an embarassment to their family, or that they are broken. Not sure about your experiences, but your understanding of Christianity is much different than mine. If I had experienced what you claim, I would agree with you. I did not, and it doesn't resemble the Christianity that I was taught. I'm sorry that somebody abused you using religion.

    Um this thread is about sexuality. If you don't want to talk about sex maybe find a different one?!

    My point about masturbation was to prove you're a hypocrite. You're saying that gay sex is abnormal because it doesn't lead to procreation. Well friend, then you have to look at ALL non-procreative sex. Masturbation and oral sex are two examples that would fit your definition of abnormal. Guess people should stop those things too.

    That doesn't support the claim; It only shows that working together as a team is good parenting. There is nothing you mentioned that is gender specific. The likelihood of a child growing up to be happy and self confident is in direct proportion to the quality of parenting and not the gender of the parents. Being gay does not make one a bad parent any more than being straight makes one a good parent.

    If I asked your kids what you think about gay people, what would they tell me? They know how you feel about gay people and would never tell you if they had any questions about themselves because your feelings towards those evil, hell bound gay people would now apply to them. They would have to deal with their feelings internally without the benefit of competent guidance.

    You were taught that being gay was against god and that a burning bush can talk. I wasn't abused; I just don't buy into it.

    Children do even better when they are raised by their biological parents

    There should be no need for a child or teenager to ever have to broach the topic of their own sexuality with parents. That stuff is for their private, independent, adult life. None of a parent's business.

    Further, I think it's always better for parents to not declare themselves (on the subject) one way or the other.

    So you do not make your kids go to church and you refrain from speaking about religion and its stance on homosexuality in the home?

    By the time they reach adulthood, any damage from internalizing their true feelings is now a permanent part of their character. If you don't talk to your kids about sex, sexuality, love, and relationships, where do you think they will learn it? I know its an awkward subject, but to leave something this important to chance is just irresponsible.

    Why would I make my kids go to church? I'm atheist. Having said that, we (husband and I) never declared a personal position on religion. All we did was talk about what various people believe, in various parts of the world.

    As for romance/sex etc being 'important' discussions to have with children ... I could not possibly disagree more. For pity's sake, amoebas can figure out how it all works .. humans need no input from parents. All they need is solid modelling of commitment and stability (in relationships), and to know where babies come from. Anything else is adults imposing their own interests upon children.

    I am an atheist but went to Sunday School and church from age 5 to 14 and don't recall the subject of homosexuality EVER came up. And if it does come up now, I suspect it is a reaction to this concerted effort in education and media to mainstream homosexuality.

    The subject of homosexuality didn't come up in my house either, growing up, even though I had atheist hippy parents. About all I recall is very occasional gentle mockery, but not expressed in an angry bigoty sort of way. More in the manner of laughing at the silliness of a puppy. I think then (the 70's), it was seen as a disability, so the cruel kind of mockery wasn't required or desired.

    Your children will have a much better more rounder education and be totally comfortable with themselves as men and/or women. More then I can say about some people here's children. Good work.

    P.S
    Their immediate move to label everyone that doesn't agree with them as sick perverts that practice bestiality and S&M says more about them than anything else.

    If you go to sadomasochism sites you will find the largest proportion are the Catholics, nothing like a good flailing to get right with God aye?

    I doubt those who frequent such sites can be trusted to be honest about their religious leanings; and I also doubt anyone who spends enough time on such sites to assess the demographics of the membership can be trusted to provide an accurate representation.

    Maybe it looks that way because you're in a pit.

    Whenever a marginalized group fights for its rights, conservatives call it an "agenda."

    Especially when they are alcoholics who beat them every night. Simply having similar DNA does not a good parent make.

    Wow I couldn't disagree with you more. Do your kids go to schools with pretty comprehensive sex ed programs? If so then maybe I get where you're coming from. If not though, I feel like that is leaving it up to their friends or God forbid internet porn, to show them what sex is supposed to be. A big part parents, and teacher in my opinion, need to talk about is how give and obtain consent. Too many kids find themselves in bad situations and aren't armed with enough information or forethought to get out of it.

    Interesting. Usually the belief that homosexuality is wrong, comes from religion. While you are suggesting that I take parenting advice from amoebas, I raised 5 kids to be comfortable talking with me about anything. I have experience and wisdom that can help them avoid big mistakes.

    Before the child reaches the age where thinking switches from the brain to other parts of the body, they should be prepared.

    You believe they should not be prepared for a world of teen pregnancy, STDs, abusive and toxic relationships. (And who knows what?)

    If they learn about sex on the internet, their idea of "normal" may include farm animals. That would be ba'a'a'a'ad!

    ????? No, I'm pretty sure being an alcoholic would be detrimental to the childrens well being. I should have been more specific for the less intelligent and added that ON AVERAGE, children do better with their biological parents. Some do poorly and some thrive, but on average children with their biological parents do better than children with heterosexual parents, one of which is not a biological parent.

    I don't believe homosexuality is 'wrong', though. I just regard it as irrelevant to children. I also feel that the future sex lives of our teens is none of our business (as parents).

    Meantime, my three kids can talk to me about anything within the range of kid interests. I'm not going to discuss Ping Pong gymnastics in Thailand, for instance. Nor about romance (because doing so gives the impression that it's important .. and it sure as hell shouldn't be, in teen years). We do, however, talk about the ethics of relationships generally.

    It's not a matter of thinking they 'shouldn't be prepared for STD's/teen pregnancies etc', it's a matter of raising them to avoid those things automatically. We don't think any of those things are inevitable, nor even ever-present threats. MILLIONS of teens around the world avoid all that stuff, without ever having been explicitly told how to. That's not a happy accident, or magic, it's a result of being raised to wait a bit.

    There is nothing automatic about preparation. Health, relationships, and finances are too important to leave to chance.
