Go to: Edge of reason: The lonely reign of Benedict XVI

Village_Idiot's Avatar Jump to comment 23 by Village_Idiot

I thought that I might reiterate one more time to clarify some confusion that my post might cause.

1. The choice of words was not unfortunate on my side but intentional. Homosexual behavior in Homo sapiens species, as stated above, is deviant, just as being an atheist is deviant, hopefully not for too long.

2.I am not interested in having here a nauseating overly politically correct debate on the choice of words when it comes to scientific description of coital and mating behaviors.

3. I find it amusing that remarks branding me with the lack of correctness come from a group that is very far from being politically correct itself when it comes to societal and cultural expression of religiosity.

4. Your accusing me of homophobia on the grounds of what I have written is simply ridiculous.

5. The point that I was trying to make is that I am not interested in mating preferences among people who run for offices but in their potential to make rational decisions when elected.

6. Daz365, I am not going to respond to your last post; however, be advised, your avatar is disgusting

7. Bonzai, Szymanowsky, Deziner and Cartomancer thank you for attention and for contributing to this "steamy" discussion.

8. gos I hope that you feel refreshed and superior after making that comment. Hahaha...'pathetic', you say, Sir? I made a note of it :-)

Are you saying being gay is deviant behavior?

Just in case your question is, for some unknown to me reason, not rhetorical, here is a definition of 'deviant':

deviant (dê´vê-ent): differing from a norm or from the accepted standards of a society.

Yes, being gay is deviant. However, you missed the main point. I am, and I hope that the rest of society would also share my view, not interested in sexual preferences of people who run for offices. It is your solely private mater how you use or misuse your own anatomy or if you use it at all.

I'm not curious, and if you go out of your way to make everybody around you aware of your coital preferences then you should be excluded from running for a public office in the first place for rather obvious reasons of psychological nature. Unfortunately, the society has not been 'trained' to behave and react rationally when it comes to privacy of sexual behaviors mainly due to how religion treats the subject.

Really? What is so great about women vicars, cabinet ministers who in public proudly admit to deviant sexual preferences and minarets pupping up in the middle of secular Europe? Explain.

To me it is rather a sign of wrongly perceived freedom, and perhaps a lack of guidance from intellectual elites, than a reason to be cheerful.

Vatican is the only financially profitable psychiatric institution that I know about. Lovely.

Obama should dress as Jesus and hold a banner: "God is on our side."
