I so pity Kirk Cameron.  I can't imagine what it must be like going through life clinging to and constantly spreading such a crusade of negativity and generally just being a dick.  I have to wonder if he has any sense of real fulfillment in his life outside of his immediate family and his delusional relationship with the guy in sky.  Sounds depressing to me.

I found it promising that many younger evangelicals are giving up praying away the gay. They know from experience it does not work.  It is a positive sign. (hopefully?)

Evangelicals Fight Over Therapy To 'Cure' Gays

.....Critics call it "praying away the gay." ....... And now the largest "ex-gay ministry" is rejecting the approach.

While an awesome gesture, $100k for Bill is like me giving a dollar to a homeless guy.

Great video from Singapore!  Religion will NEVER succeed in stifling our pride and soaring spirit.

You are absolutely correct. In fact, in many species which live in groups, fertile offspring and other relatives are discouraged from breeding.  Breeding occurs among the high ranking members, while the rest of the family helps to raise the next generation.  "It takes a village."

It is only when those who break out to find mates and form their own groups, are allowed to breed.  Meerkats, wolves, African dogs and gerbils are a few of the species which live in this manner.  There are also species of birds where older siblings help to raise the newest arrivals.

In humans, having gay relatives to help raise your young is a biological advantage as well as enabling the gay person to pass on his genes through nieces and nephews.

The problem with some scientists is that they are human, so they carry their personal prejudices with them.

Before I slam scientists, allow me to praise science. Science is simply the study of life and it can answer every question. For example, only through science will we learn about black holes, dark energy and dark matter. If we never find all of the answers to our questions about these things, it is not because science has failed us, but because we are lacking in our knowledge, equipment, and ability to research something. This just all means that it is our own human failings which sometimes keep us from knowing the answers or solutions to scientific questions.
For too long, scientists have hidden facts about the sexuality of non-human animals. I have been around animals all of my life, many more species than the average person, and although bisexuality seems to exists at a higher rate than homosexuality, both exists with obvious frequency.
There was a comment made about, "Oh Fluffy is jealous of the baby." Well guess what, step away from your white jacket for a moment, Fluffy is jealous of the baby. Fluffy now understands that this other life form is getting attention and that he is getting less attention.
There was a time when some of the maniac "scientists" made claims that non-humans animals could not feel pain. While they were torturing a dog in the lab, did they not go home and say, "Sorry boy," when they stepped on Fluffy's tail, knowing that it was obvious that Fluffy feels pain?
While it is true that we humans can be quite ridiculous sometimes in assigning our cultural wants and desires on our pets, is it any less ridiculous to deny other animals with brains and nerve endings, and who live complicated lives with social activities, feelings of pain, boredom, fear, and love?
Just as slave owners and conquers deny the feelings, pain, and emotions of those people they subjugate, scientists have done that to non-human animals, and religion has done that to both non-human animals and the LGBT community. At one time scientists also bought into the ill treatment of LGBT people. The problem is not with science, it is with some of the people who work in science.
If two non-human animals of the same sex are coming together for sexual gratification (I have seen it myself), then they are engaged in homosexual activity. No one needs a committee, a dissection of the brain, or the church to give us permission to see the obvious.
So while Fluffy doesn't care if he is wearing a rainbow collar or not, he certainly may care about engaging in rainbow activities.

from BBC.

The Hunt for the Gay Whale

Can animals really be gay? Some biologists argue that they can, and that their experiences challenge Darwin's theories of evolution. Hermione Cockburn investigates. (I thought E O Wilson explained "gayness" with his theory of altruism. - Gary)
