There has been a lot of talk, on mindsay, and on the internets lately about homosexuality. Not so much fundementalist homophobes condeming homosexuals to hell, but homosexuals themselves, addamantly defending their sexual preference. To be honest, I couldn’t really care less whether someone was gay or straight. But when I am presented with all these opinions, it makes me think, and I want to present my opinion as well.

*ahem*

One of the common things I have noticed in articles written by people proclaiming their gayness is that they want respect, because being gay is “normal” and “natural”. Mind you, whether homosexuality is normal or not has little to do whether it is morally wrong or right. There are plenty of things that come natural to human beings that aren’t practiced by the general population, because they are wrong, and there are also countless things that humans do do that aren’t natural at all.

Because I don’t want to be educated on science, and gender roles, sexuality, etc. by someone who has formulated their own opinions by the popular media, I turn to people who have studied these things. Scientists from all backgrounds, liberal, conservative, christian fundamentalist, neo-pagan, and even of varying sexual practices have contributed to the research. One of my favorite researchers in this field is Professor Steven Goldberg. Goldberg is the Chairman of the sociology department at City College of NY. He acknowledges that in order to shed light on the real facts of human sociology, you have to look at the facts without bias, without standing on some ideological ground on which you base your opinions. Because, of course, the Christian scientists are going to have evidence against homosexiality, and Pro-Gay scientists are going to have evidence supporting it. 🙂 Thats just the way it is.
A shame that such an advanced society has to mix religion and politics in science.

Goldberg has some interesting things to say about homosexuality..
“Goldberg says that gays have an ideological commitment to proving the normality of homosexuality, but they have not yet been able to make a convincing argument for it.

We cannot grant gays affirmation of the normality of their behavior unless they can give us a cause for homosexuality that can be considered normal, he says. Most gays refuse to consider the common environmental factors that have been found in the backgrounds of homosexuals; they simply insist that causation is “irrelevant.” They expect, he says, that we should suspend criteria for normality which psychologists apply in all other cases.

Many gay spokesmen actually tend to deny the logic of deeming any behavior abnormal. Yet this approach does them little good. What they really want to argue, Goldberg says, is that homosexuality is normal, while other behaviors like necrophilia and coprophilia are not. To make the argument that homosexuality is normal because “all variant behaviors are ‘normal,'” gays would then be forced to deliver an argument explaining why necrophilia and coprophilia should be viewed as perversions, while homosexuality was healthy.”



Again, do not get me wrong. I have nothing against homosexuals. I would never try to stop someone from loving their same sex partner, I would never commit or condone hate crimes, and I would never treat someone differently because of their sexuality. But I will tell people my opinions, especially when everyone else gets to share. It is Samaels turn. : ]



I have heard a lot of homosexuals, and “pro gays” on the rampage claim that people are born gay. 🙂 That my dearies, is utter foolishness. Not only has it been dismissed by everyone in the scientific field, it’s not logical. There is no evidence supporting the “gay gene” theory either. Simon LeVay himself has said this: “It is important to stress what I didn’t find. I did not prove that homosexuality was genetic, or find a cause for being gay. I didn’t show that gay men were born that way, the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work.”. So homosexuality is not genetic. No one is inheriantly gay. If they were, anyone who was gay would not be able to change. I personally know three people who once identified themselves and practiced bi-homosexuality, and since have found opposite sex lovers. Does this mean that all people can do this? I don’t know. But it can and does happen. An arguement against people “changing sexuality” is that they wern’t really gay, they were straight all along. Really? Who can say? No one.


I hate making long posts, so I will cut this one here. 🙂 Enjoysed!

Euthanasia for Babies in Holland

Monday, 13 March 2006

Sparks fly in the debate over assisted suicide in the United States. Assisted suicide, by most, is thought to be something that only the very old and very sick would ever even consider. But, in other parts of the world, that is not the case.

Each year in Holland at least 15 seriously ill babies, most of them with severe spina bifida or chromosomal abnormalities, are helped to die by doctors acting with the parents’ consent. But only a fraction of those cases are reported to the authorities because of the doctors’ fears of being charged with murder.

Things are about to change, however, making it much easier for parents and doctors to end the suffering of an infant.

A committee set up to regulate the practice will begin operating in the next few weeks, effectively making Holland, where adult euthanasia is legal, the first country in the world to allow “baby euthanasia” as well.” (1)

This could be a first step into changing the way people look at assisted suicide and “mercy killings” forever. People both for and against need to take another look at the issue, and really think about the consequences of what could happen, if this practice becomes common.

Racist Organizations Online

Sunday, 26 February 2006

By Davyd ‘Hu
It’s hard to believe that in the year 2006, there are still racists and white supremacists. Worst still than following this sort of “philosophy” is spreading its propaganda, and that is exactly what an online movement called National Vanguard is doing.
Being slightly less than aesthetically pleasing is the least of this organizations problems. Filth and ignorant lies abound on this website. There are numerous quotes within these so called “articles” that normally would have made me laugh for the stark stupidity and ignorance, however, because they were actually serious, made me angry. People like the creators of this organization make me feel ashamed to be of European descent.
After browsing the site for merely three minutes, I found myself unable to continue, so full of crap this site was. However,  I did pick out two quotes to post here, two quotes that reveal the ignorance, and hateful evil that these people are all about.

Both he and I have been researching the Jewish connection to the sexual slavery, debauchery, and rape of White women by non-Whites and, I’m telling you, the connection is there. Jews are so dominant and influential in debasing and deceiving White women and girls on such a massive scale that, to any decent White person, no forgiveness is possible.

As a public service, National Alliance members in Silicon Valley have been warning residents of the area about the serious health risks for White people associated with interracial sex.
