[on a recent study finding a link between homophobia and repressed same-sex desires]
This isn't science. It's psychobabble mumbo-jumbo, where somehow our potty training or our breast-feeding or our spankings have shaped our most deeply held adult beliefs. The same liberals who complained it was utterly unscientific for Sen. Bill Frist to diagnose Terri Schiavo's medical condition from the Senate floor think it's scientific to guess about the "unconscious" things that conservatives have hidden from themselves inside their own brains. What if you're a religious parent who feels that the homosexual lifestyle is sinful, at odds with what God intended for humanity? These academics don't like to discuss religion, except by implying that religious parents are "controlling" and "authoritarian" and prompt "hateful" attitudes. Secular leftists hate it when conservatives bring religion into politics, arguing it's unfair to say God favors the Republican agenda. But then they turn around and bring science into politics, insisting that science favors the liberal agenda, that "reality has a liberal bias."

It is not that reality has any bias.
It's that conservatives lie and bullshit.
Let me repeat that.
Conservatives and fundamentalists lie like a Persian rug in order to appease a mythical mandate.
We hate it when Fanatic Right-wing Nutjobs bring religion into politics as it is a certain indicator they're going to lie and refuse logic, YET AGAIN.
You. Are. A. Liar.
Have a nice day.

Well Brent, It's a darn good thing that this did not strike a nerve, or make you behave in a way that your intense anger may be masking something deeper. Good thing for you, because had that been the case, there are some in the field of psychology who just might think there may be something just below the surface there.
But -- you don't have to worry about that, now do you, Brent?
Must be such a relief for you.

I'm curious which study they're talking about. I know that there was one study that showed homophobes becoming aroused at the sight of gay porn a few years ago, but that's not "recent" in this case. Also, there were some questions about that study - for instance, it's known that anger can cause the same type of arousal in people, so it didn't prove that homophobes are gay.
Secondly, it is true that how you are raised does affect your adult beliefs. The things you are taught as a child do carry over as an adult-especially if you're sheltered from opposing viewpoints. If your parents drill into you at a young age that homosexuality is wrong, you're still going to believe it as an adult, unless you've been exposed to homosexuals enough to learn the opposite.

No, Mr. Bozo, that's you...in fact, you & your ilk are still stuck in that stage, Bent Bozo Babyman.
