If homosexuality is a chemical imbalance brought on by the environment, why is it also a choice? Without wishing to get too deeply into determinism, it seems like you're saying homosexuality - by your own standards and (inaccurate) causal factors - is unavoidable. In your framework it is the same as all those people who "choose" to have manic depression or schizophrenia.

Apt username indeed. Although, could have added moronic in there and it would still fit this person like a glove.

You know, religion is a choice too...

Why 'murder' as your example of choice? Anything is a choice. This asshole could have just as easily said 'Homosexuality, like Coke or Pepsi, is a choice'. But, that wouldn't have been nearly as shocking. These dicks get off on setting up moral nonequivalences(word?)and playing them too the hilt, and wind up looking like the disingenuous bastards they are by anyone with two braincells to rub together.

He chose Murder to imply that AIDS was caused by gays.
They never let go, even when something is totally disproven, they just say without saying, like the way they pick on Obama for all manner of things, never saying but blatantly implying it's because he's black.

"(SaneChick is annoyed that she is not gay and cannot simultaneously get her rocks off and annoy and offend bigoted people. She likes to multitask when possible. She is considering more threesomes in her future.)"
So, what are you doing this weekend? :P
I'm sorry. Couldn't resist.

There's nothing "dark" about wanting to have a consensual loving relationship with anyone. Comparing homosexual people to murderers is bullshit, and you know it.

But, even though you don't have to act on homosexual desire, your comparing queer folk to murderers proves how little you know about us.
There is nothing "dark" about my attraction to Felicia Day or ScarJo. In fact, just because Lev. 20:13 brands male homosexual activity an abomination, that doesn't make it automatically wrong. Goatherders, man.

"Homosexuality, like murder, is a choice."
No it isn't, you fucking moron. It's a sexual orientation that is fixed and unchangeable.

Except we have lots and lots of data about homosexuality and, while not yet entirely conclusive, all of it points to the very strong probability that homosexuality is an inborn biological trait.
Also, being gay doesn't hurt anyone. Murdering people does.

But there's a major difference, isn't there? One kills people, the other doesn't.
What's "dark" about the impulses? They're the same sexual impulses you have, just directed at another gender.
"The same mentality that possesses the murderer, also possesses the homosexual." This does not follow.

On this logic, just about anything is a choice, and therefore can be likened to murder. Like heterosexuality, Christianity, eating spaghetti, even breathing:
Breathing, like murder is a choice.
One chooses to engage in breathing behavior in order to satisfy dark urges. The breather, like the murderer, can choose to refrain from acting upon this dark impulse (by suffocating themselves), but decides to succume and commit acts of vulgarity. Therefore, it stands to reason that the same mentality that possesses the murderer, also possesses the breather. That is a chemical imbalance in the brain brought on by environmental forces or stress.
Seriously though, an argument can be made that "Christian behaviour" is far more of a choice than "homosexual behaviour" given that the former is not the result of a built-in biological instinct. And that relishing watching the majority of humanity being tortured forever is a little more of a "dark impulse" than being romantically involved with a person who is *gasp* the same gender as you.

Watching daytime TV, like murder, is a choice.
One chooses to engage in daytime behaviour in order to satisfy dark urges......
By your logic every passion, hobby, etc, is like murder. Great, have no pleasures and do nothing. You do realise you can no longer own that semi-auto.

Being blonde, like murder, is a choice. You may think it's 'natural' just because you were born with it but you're really just living in weak-willed sin and offending God. Dye your hair and resist those wicked blonde urges until you can proudly declare "I am a natural brunette" to everyone you meet. You may argue that dye doesn't stop your hair from actually being blonde and is nothing more than a cosmetic lie to placate the ignorant but that's logic -- DEVILSPEAK!!! Nothing but an excuse to defy me... I mean God.

Man, this shit is starting to get boring.
6/4/2012 8:59:16 PM
exactly why I chose to be homosexual, all those men just look so damn nice, and I don't like women at all... that's why I chose to be gay.
6/5/2012 9:15:50 AM
Pretty Sure religion is a choice too... :-/

Because even God is powerless to defend the fundie from the power of homosexuality. In fact, the mighty Bible God quails before the homosexual advance because sex in any form destroys all gods and their minions. So sex on good atheists, whether it be hetro or otherwise, and lets love the Gods out of existence.

You forgot to show the most important connection, the part where homosexuality, like murder, results in the death of an innocent human being. Probably because such a connection doesn't actually exist.
