Homosexuality

I can't quite understand why people say that it is wrong for any reason other than the fact that they would never do it themselves... can someone actually give some good reasons?

We have only two users here that would even take the bait, and they haven't been really active lately.

That and their justification is that the bible says no no.

I tried to put together a Devil's advocate here but I couldn't find any decent arguments which couldn't be demolished by someone with the wit more than a 10 year old.

Including:
-"It's unnatural"
-"Causes a breakdown of the traditional family unit"
-"Where homosexuality is encouraged there is a worryingly low birth rate."
-"Causes an influx of cheesy musical theatre productions"

"bible" is not a reason, specifics? I can tell you there are only about 6 verses that are against homosexuality and about 30 verses against heterosexuality (these numbers are the closest to the actual figures that I can remember, but I know that there's more against hetros than homos)

Homosexuality is seen as bad between 2 guys, but lesbianism is seen as terrific.  I love the double standard.

And there are more verses saying that heterosexuality is bad, so how is homosexuality "wrong" and heterosexuality "right"

Neither are wrong or right, they're both natural.

This is a parody of religious gay bashers, sorry if that wasn't made clear.

The only purpose of marriage is to produce kids.  Infertile couples should not be allowed to marry as well.  They end-game goal of the human race is to populate so much that we choke out all other life, including bacteria and viruses (if you consider them life, lolz) and then live forever as the supreme beings on the planet.

Jesus and several others in the New Testament say the Old rules still apply.  Anyone who tries to weasel out of the Old by saying they follow the New needs to go back and actually read the books instead of trying to justify it.

AIDS

if we were to pass laws that would get rid of AIDS then hetros would be outlawed too, and lesbianism would be promoted (not like it isn't already) AIDS is as much of a risk to straight people as it is to gays
