President Obama pledges to return jobs to the US.

Since it was Willard Mitt Romney who sent a vast majority of them overseas, and he made money at it too!

Here's another gem;
'If you
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act'
"Design of sexual union".
WTF????
Is that like 'Ignore the purpose of an ambigious statement"???
Make sense idiot
Add to that 'manipulate a harmful act'.
Like what? Jumping into a full bathtub with a plugged in hair dryer while simultaneously drinking cyanide Kool Aid???
Whatever the hell you are you're more gone than the homeless wino on 7th and Elm running for President while holding his handmade cardboard sign pleading for supporters.
LOL!!!!
I'm beginning to understand why you are afraid to ask family and friends if you need a letter. You might open a door you can't close...

The 'design of sexual union' is a male and female are 'designed' to go together. We even discribe things like electrical connections as 'male and female' based on the design of sexual union. This is not rocket science...

'manipulate a harmful act' is anal sex. Inherently harmful, grossly unhealthy and disgracefully demeaning.

Tell you what danny boy, lets have a third issue; I'll describe natural sex, and you describe safe anal sex. Then we can connect 'all' the similarities...

Frankly, I wonder if gays want your support danny boy...

Smile.

Still confused as to what a marriage is, I see.
Legally, it's simply two people joining together in a marriage contract. No particular type of relationship is legally required, other than that desire to obtain a marriage license.
Now, if you are talking about WHY people marry, then the reasons are all across the board. And all of those reasons, the good and the bad, are shared by gay couples who choose to marry.
You really need to try a different angle. Illogical personal opinions presented as facts aren't really working for you.
You married?

I find it literally offensive for you to diminish marriage to 'two people in a relationship' dictated by johnny come lately law!

Moreover, there is not one person alive with a brain that doesn't know dumbing down marriage to those minute points is the only way a redumdant couple could even begin to qualify. People will look back historically and just shake their heads...

1. Have you read the social health statistics for children of single parents. They use the word condemn to describe the consequence.

So you wish to ban all single parents from legally marrying? How is that good for children? Or, are you trying to say it's only good for the children of gay parents?
Please provide the stats that prove this odd premise. It seems a bit counter-intuitive.
Where in the world did I say that?

"counter intuitive" that children of single parents have a social disadvantage? Are you serious? YOU need to look up the studies, it's not hard for a average person...

Well, then........if my wife and I already have children, then you should have no problem with us being married......but you are probably going to make some other asinine statement as to why that doesn't equate to infertile/sterile heterosexual couples or heterosexual couples past childbearing years, right?
Just because you don't like how Gay and Lesbian couples create children DOESN'T make them anymore sterile or infertile than the straight couple that needs to use IVF!!!!
I have a serious problem with gays pretending that gay unions are marriage. It is a offensive farce.

I have a problem with children being raised in a situation that deprives them of at least one parent AND one gender. I find it diabolically criminal to deliberately birth a child into that situation.

I have a problem equating obvious and critical distinctions in the attempt for those in denial to continue.

<quoted text>
Yes, actually that IS said. In many places. Medical Science disagrees with your statement above. Medical Science has already concurred that one's "pedophilic" orientation, and one's "sexual" orientation are not necessary tied to the same gender. This has been pointed out to you on NUMEROUS occasions Gary. But like the lying, deceitful moron that you are, you just think if you keep pretending otherwise, that you will somehow magically produce proof.
You are no different then a child sticking its fingers in its ears, and yelling, "lalalalalalalalalalalala la".
The majority of adult males that victimize male children, are straight men. That's a FACT Gary. One you can ignore to your heart's content. But your ignoring doesn't alter its reality. Acts against children, just like rape, are acts of power, not sexual desire. The psychological process which drives one does not drive the other. They may match, they may not.
http://www.mayoclinicproceedings.org/article/... (11)61074-4/fulltext#cesec20
"Pedophiles are usually attracted to a particular age range and/or sex of child. Research categorizes male pedophiles by whether they are attracted to only male children (homosexual PEDOPHILIA), female children (heterosexual PEDOPHILIA), or children from both sexes (bisexual PEDOPHILIA). The percentage of homosexual pedophiles ranges from 9% to 40%, which is approximately 4 to 20 times higher than the rate of adult men attracted to other adult men (using a prevalence rate of adult homosexuality of 2%-4%). This finding DOES NOT IMPLY that homosexuals are more likely to molest children, just that a larger percentage of pedophiles are homosexual or bisexual IN ORIENTATION TO CHILDREN."
Despite your claims otherwise Gary, Medical Science DOES claim that PEDOPHILIA has it's OWN, UNIQUE gender orientation.
Sucks to be a lying POS like you I guess.
There's stupidity, Jonah1, and then there's a poster so bereft of mother wit he posts quotes that rebut his own stupid opinion.

That poster is you, Jonah1.

Here's why...

Directly above you first inform us:
Medical Science has already concurred that one's "pedophilic" orientation, and one's "sexual" orientation are not necessary tied to the same gender.
This done, you amazingly follow it up with a quote that categorically refutes it:
The percentage of homosexual pedophiles ranges from 9% to 40%, which is approximately 4 to 20 times higher than the rate of adult men attracted to other adult men (using a prevalence rate of adult homosexuality of 2%-4%). This finding DOES NOT IMPLY that homosexuals are more likely to molest children, just that a larger percentage of pedophiles are homosexual or bisexual IN ORIENTATION TO CHILDREN."
Now try to follow, Jonah1, as I enumerate the points your second quote establishes:

----------
1. Homosexual pedophiles range from 9% to 40%.

2. This percentage range is approximately 4 to 20 times higher than the rate of adult men attracted to other men.

3.... a larger percentage of pedophiles are homosexual in orientation to children.

----------

In other words, you've just made the strongest case for homosexuality equals pedophilia yet written in this forum -- far stronger than anything I or any other homophobe has ever posted here.

Was that your purpose, Jonah1, or are you infinitely more stupid than what I've been telling everybody all along?

Get a grip, man.

You do realize you're endorsing all the sex practices in The Little Black Book, don't you?

http://www.massresistance.org/docs/issues/bla...

And if you're a straight guy with kids of your own, excuse me for getting that part wrong.

That said, are you telling us you think it safe, normal, and as wholesome as mom's apple pie if your kids elect to fist, rim, pee on and have anal sex with members of their own sex?

And excuse me for being so explicit but this abstract understanding of homosexuality you straight morons who support same sex marriage have simply doesn't go far enough.

The LGBT would rather homosexuality be an abstract idea and not the life-style depicted in Their very own self-published "Little Black Book."

Not on my watch, I'm afraid.

Hey Ricky,
I'v e got to go to 'FastSigns' in your backyard and be there at 3:00 to pick up some material. 9117 E. Stockton Blvd. ELK GROVE, California!!!
Just letting you know so if you get all balled up again only to threaten me there I'll be. And with a limp!!! My broken toe still hasn't healed.
And I'm TIRED. Me and the wife came home late last night.
Hell, I'll be easy prey you Billy Badass you. A ten year old schoolkid mad he ran out of Captain Crunch cereal this morning could probably take me out today leaving an open road for you to do the same. And I can't run away....it'll be like hunting a 3 legged one eyed deer in a rodeo enclosure for you Bruce Lee reincarnated.
Shit Ricky....drink your protein shake, pump yourself up and back up your claim to put me in my place in person like you did. I'll be there in not only Technicolor but in 3-D and within distance of a Louisville Slugger should you find yourself a little nervous.
LOL!!!
Yeah, I know. Once you realized the shit you were in by threatening a person who lived in your same neck of the woods it made it a little tougher to back up your tough guy stance of teaching them a lesson in person. Don't sweat it, I know you're a pussy and will be looking for you like I'd look for a polar bear in the depth of the Amazon forest.
Funny how you make a stupid comment about pedophiles and childhood then change the topic to baiting me to meet u in person. Then re-write this BS that i made a threat to you. But can't find that post. I have told u before that i am not into that. There is nothing to settle, u have been shown to be uninformed many times here. Your posts says it all about you.

I merely pointed out the age of consent in at least a dozen countries is 12. I had nothing to do with these laws so how you attribute pedophilia to me is a mystery.

That said, how is it you're tolerant of sodomy but not laws that make the age of consent 12?

How do you stomach the notion of anal sex while being repulsed at the notion of sex with a 12 year old?

What's your rationale, fella?

<quoted text>
Yes indeed. The perpetrators of sexual abuse against children are quite often handing down generations of behavior. This has nothing to do with homosexuality or heterosexuality. In spite of that little factoid there are those (Gayry Lloyd fer instance) that constantly try to link homosexuality with pedophilia. The link simply is not there. The attraction to children is not a function of either orientation. The repeated use of "examples" to prove otherwise is hogwash. For every gay man that has molested children there are many who are straight who molest children. The adult sexual orientation of the perpetrator has no correlation with his victim's gender. This is not junk science or gay propaganda in spite of what Prof Frivolous insists.
Thanks Winston, well said. Glad you have some balance here. Many just agree with the poster because of who he or she is. Yes it's a human problem, it has a lot to do with childhood, it shows how important it is to raise children. have a nice day. Dan will never admit he is wrong, anger does that to people. have a nice weekend.
