    Abortion and Adoption

    So since 1973 the number of adoptees in the US has declined and so many people seeking to adopt children have had to go overseas, but if abortion was criminalized the number of adopted children would most likely increase. So with the hypothetical increase of adopted children where would most of...

    How would you like to be pregnant against your will?

    To digress from the unnecessary banter some of the relevant arguments over the past 8 pages got me thinking about the children put up for adoption if abortion was criminalized. So since 1973 the number of adoptee in the US has declined and so many people seeking adopted children have had to go...

    NARAL Television ad lies about Judge Roberts.

    Does anyone know where I can see the commercial online? I've been interested in seeing the actual commercial hearing all of the criticisms of it.

    The Draft and the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy

    Efforts to retain the status quo and retain some people's so called "values" will inevitably fail because social change is inevitable. Unless there is some massive gay genocide each generation will start to accept homosexuality more and more and soon policies like the Don't Ask, Don't Tell...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. But to conclude our daylong debate I think the phrase "deal with the hand you are dealt" has a lot of importance over the hostility the children of gay parents receive. Kids will always find something to ridicule their peers about, and everyone has been...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    If I seemed at all condescending or overly defensive I didn't mean it, I'm just getting caught up in the debate. While it is believed that two heterosexual parents would be best for children (which really can't just be justified by common sense, it would be nice to see a credible sociological...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I really don't understand how AIDS suddenly comes into this argument because if we are talking about gay marriage we are talking about monogamous gay couples, not promiscuous single guys having a good time. Really if people are concerned about AIDS in the debate over gay marriage they are...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    The definitions of a typical marriage and family have undergone many changes over the past 100 years which of course is inevitable because change is inevitable. So really trying to sustain this current definition of marriage will pretty much be futile because with each year and each new...

    Anti-gay group protests at soldier's funeral

    I found this on Wikipedia which has compiled a great amount about this group including a list of its members (which are actually related to the leader) "In 1995 a bomb exploded at the WBC compound, outside the home of Shirley Phelps-Roper, a daughter of Fred Phelps. Though the Topeka Police...

    Anti-gay group protests at soldier's funeral

    So I did some research on their websites and the protesting of the funerals of the soldiers actually started because one of their churches was bombed, so they are saying that God is punishing our soldiers by killing them in Iraq. First of all that stance has no connection whatsoever to the war...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    While I think that the whole “separate but equal” scenario invokes the same feelings attributed to Plessy v. Ferguson I think that if nationwide civil unions were granted people would start to see that the theoretical detrimental effects of granting homosexual couples are false which would...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I think that proven scientific evidence can usually drastically change people's minds. For example if scientist can figure out how the inorganic matter came together to form the emergent prokaryotic cell then they would have proved how life began. While some might say that is still the work of...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    While I doubt that homosexuality is a psychological disorder, scientific evidence is needed to ever foster social change. I agree that everyone should have equal protections under the law but what you are calling for is drastic social change and many people believe in the abberance of...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    Well if homosexuality was proven to be completely a product of the enviorment then what would that mean- homosexuality is purely a psychological defect and would most likely be treated like you would treat anxiety or depression. In addition to this it wouldn't make sense to give homosexuals...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I think that whole "they can change" argument really isn't plausible because of the fact that many of the groups who believe and support the idea that homosexuality is more or less a mental delusion that can be reversible really have no scientific claim except flimsy claims like "they haven't...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I was reading all the posts in the past few days and it got me thinking, what is the future of the gay rights movement and as this thread is titled the "gay agenda". Just looking at other civil rights movements I think that the opposition to the gay rights movement (aka the Christian...

    Anti-gay group protests at soldier's funeral

    Anti-gay group protests at soldier's funeral "Members of the Rev. Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., are picketing military funerals, KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported Friday. <snip> Protesters said America has ignored the word of God, and those who defend the nation must pay...

    A GaY Agenda ?

    I think "many" is an over exaggeration to describe the number of "converted" gays. A lot of these conversion groups are religious (excluding groups like NARTH) which of course means that these groups do not employ science and thus have no scientific significance. These conversions are assuming...

    America did not re-elect the worst President ever

    About the election of Bush, my question for everyone is if the topic of gay marriage hadn't been present in last year's election how do you think the presidential and congressional elections would've turned out?

    The Draft and the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy

    I think that other than people’s abuse of the policy to get out of the armed forces, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy seems as though it would instill many of the gay soldiers with a sense of paranoia which ultimately would deeply impact the soldier’s life. What I mean by this is, whenever they...
