    if homos want to recognize that they are disgusting perverts and turn from their perversions and seek Christ, that's great!


    if homos want to pretend that their perversion is "normal" and should be accepted by society, then I'm all for holding them down and drilling holes in their skulls

    Oh, you sad little man. I live in the real world and you are too boring and thick to bother with anymore. Hope that changes for you, I really do. In the meantime, the best of luck with the upcoming nuptials...

    Well this is fun isn't it?

    All of which at times, ironicly, either bogs down forward progress for a time, or other times actually speeds up forward progress in one area or another, in a right direction.

    Other times, some great leap forward is made some by lone individual here and there who seemingly fit nowhere in particular- because his or her worldview or model of things simply did not fit the status quo's "settled" and or thus "accredited last word" on a thing.

    Case in point...

    "Who would want to speak into a black box..." - the then world renowned "accredited" expert on tele-communication "through a wire": Western Union, turning down the opportunity offered them by Alexander Graham Bell, to be the first with him to take tele-phone (or tele-voice) communication "through a wire" to the masses.

    "The rest," as they say, "is history."

    But back to the subject at a level closer to its surface: same sex attraction.

    Well, just a bit closer to its surface...

    Question: where sexual attraction is concerned, what "sex" are babies?

    As much as I have observed behaviour in human beings for it might point back to when it is so called "scientifically" observed, none.

    I believe the answer to that kind of a question and where it leads, or fails to, plays a role in helping get to the bottom of this hetero and or same sex attraction question.

    And again, in life in general, getting to the bottom of one thing or another, or not, always goes back to where one is looking at things from to begin with.
    You seem to be dancing around an argument of everyone's viewpoint is different therefore there is no certainty in the world. While there is some philosophical truth to that, it really just applies evenly to everything and so is essentially meaningless to the scientific question.

    The entire purpose of the scientific method is to realize that subjectiveness exists and negate it as much as possible.

    You also seem to be drifting off the question, we are not trying to get to the bottom of the hetero and/or same-sex attraction question. The question we are trying to get to the bottom of is do any of the multitudes of conversion therapies actually work and are they safe (ie any potential harm is outweighed by the benefits).

    That is a far different question and one the scientific method as it is applied to medical treatments is quite capable of answering. The process of applying that method minimizes and negates the subjective issues you raise.

    Neither point is relevant as to whether conversion therapy works. Should we take from the last comment that you are in favor of parents abusing their children?

    I guarantee you that my proposed therapy of drilling holes into the skulls of unrepentant homos will be 100% effective

    Perhaps but is it worth spending the rest of your life in prison for?

    if that's God's will, so be it


    would you risk prison to save the souls of others?

    A bit of the macabre...

    Dahmer used to do that to his victims.

    Didn't seem to help them much.

    Yes, that sounds like something Jesus would approve of...
    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.

    can you show scripture where Jesus not only approved of unrepentant sinners but also those who attempted to pervert their society including children?
