    The "hygienic" view of sodomy as physically unhealthy is a lesser consideration than the moral perception that sodomy equates the source of human life with the production of dirt. Allowing people to do that, or celebrating their doing it, follows logically upon approving of abortion, which in a sense not merely figurative disposes of the product of a woman's womb as if that were indeed a kind of dirt, though the scientific among us may claim that such "moral perceptions" don't count for anything compared to being physically healthy and feeling good about one's self (enjoying positive selfy-steam.)

    Robert Hiscock, I find your comment quite bizzare. While I agree with you that Future Tense is quite good (got it for Xmas actually), your contention that personal hygiene and sexual orientation are in any way related is delusional. If you're a rabble rouser, fine. If you actually beleive this, please elaborate "on this very important issue".

      No problem "Kilgore". One must look at an aversion to homosexuality with a historical sense that still applies to our times. There once was a time where the personal hygiene of people and societies was many orders of magnitude much lower than the hygiene of an average person in Canada. Where the roots of christianity first took root, the holy land, the vast majority of people lived in abject poverty, and even those of the highest order of rank, for example a roman citizen, in those days probably only had the hygiene of a pauper of victorian england, which is to say, washing once or twice or month a week. So because of the complete lack of hygiene people had to pay closer attention to their behaviours. One example: it is dirty to bite your nails. Follow up: It is dirty to take part in man to man sex. It is inherently dirty, this cannot be debated. Following "Kilgore"? Now, that aversion to homosexuality still exists in our time because of a wide spectrum in the difference in hygiene from one person to the next, from one society to the next. What is best for canadians may not be best for ugandans. Canada in general is less averse to the gays because our hygiene as a whole is probably better per capita than the hygiene in uganda. One more things: I am gay neutral, that is to say I don't care who one loves. I believe in the absolute right of individuals to live ones own life as one sees fit. But here, in this explanation you will find the reasons why some people call homosexuality evil, or a sin: because it is a sublimation of peoples instincts to a human, "all too human" natural aversion to sickness and death.

      If they don't post my full response, perhaps the Telegram, that beacon of free thought and expression will post my summarized version: Biting your nails is dirty, Therefore taking part in man on man sex is dirty. Dirty without good hygiene leads to sickness, decay, and death, for individuals as well as civilizations. Am I delusional, or are you?

    Isn't it sad, "seanoairborne", how the pagan "Holiday Tree", the Festival of Saturnalia and the celebration of the Winter Solstice have been co-opted and corrupted by Christians? NEWFOUINDLAND! What has become of you? My Celtic and Gaulish ancestors who fought at Alesia and Medway are turning over in their graves!

      What's to matter meatball?You never answered,sufficiently,any of my queries?MY Celtic ancestors were Christians,not Anthropoids,like yours obviously were!!

      "What's to matter, meatball..."? It is quite obvious - by your juvenile ad hominem rant - that I answered your queries in the manner that they deserved. If you had more than a passing knowledge of history you would know that YOUR Celtic ancestors (and mine) were followers of many different pagan religions before being converted to Christianity by the sword. You would also know that your grandfather didn't die at Vimy Ridge so that followers of one religious sect could impose their own peculiar beliefs upon their fellow citizens. If you had even a grade school knowledge of science -biology, in general, and evolutionary biology, in particular - you would know that homosexuality has been observed and documented in over 1500 species. It is a genetic variation and not an "abomination in the eyes of the Lord" as the religiously deluded believe. Finally, I might point out, that while my ancient ancestors came from the Hominid branch of the family tree, we still feel deep affection for our distant cousins on the Anthropoid side of family - you, as well. Happy Holidays!

    I never understood why 97 pct of the population of a country should buckle down to the three or four percent of a small minority.What a bunch of sheeple you have became all in the name of political correctness and diversity.And how about that "Holiday Tree"at the Avalon Mall?Another politically correct stunt that's taking the word "Christmas"and throwing it on the trash heap of history along with the well earned pride of a once great people who fought in two great wars to make the world safe for democracy and freedom and to uphold the noble standards that many bled and died for?Standards that have become passe in today's world!? Alas,it was all for naught! NEWFOUNDLAND!What has become of you?I barely recognize you any more?My Grandfather who fought at Vimy is turning over in his grave!

      People fought in two great wars to make the world safe for democracy and freedom and to uphold the noble standards that many bled and died for to stop the "holiday tree" at the Avalon Mall? Lol oh poor white Christians getting upset when others get rights they've been trying to deny them for years.

    One of Mr. Dwyers books, entitled Future: Tense, is a must read for anyone who would like to know more about the Iraq war and some of the real reasons why that war occurred. However, Mr. Dwyer seems to overlook the teachings of some very important texts. I'm not religious, though J.C. is my favorite of the gods. When talking about gay rights one should have to talk about hygiene, and how the spectrum of hygiene from one person to the next in our modern world is very long. I mean, this is not a religious thing. The reason why the bible says that it is a sin directly relates to hygiene, sickness, and health. Do I have any takers to discuss this very important issue, or just the same old crowd yelling bigot?

      I can only assume, Mr. Hiscock, that you follow other Biblical prohibitions with equal zeal? Do you like bacon? Out (Leviticus 11:7-8). Shellfish (Lev. 11:9-12)? Also out. Have you had a haircut recently? Out (Lev. 19:27). Do you plant different crops or flowers in your garden, allow your sheep and cattle graze together or wear a cotton shirt with woolen pants? Out, out and out (Lev. 19:19)! On the plus side, if your spouse should find that life with another man is preferable to living with you, you can kill her without penalty (Lev. 20:10). And if you can't find another wife, you can always keep a slave...or two or three (as long as they are from another nation (Lev. 25:44-46). I do hope that you don't - through some unhappy circumstance or accident - become disabled, for then you will be unable to approach or enter the House of the Lord (Lev. 21:18-23).

    Oh, yes, the "gay agenda". The demand to be treated equally and fairly under the law, and the ability to live without fear of persecution by bigoted individuals and religious fundamentalists. It certainly rates right up there on the "Threat to Humanity" scale with the corporate war on the middle class and unions, the rape of the environment of by mining and oil interests and the never ending, but extremely profitable War on Terror,doesn't it, "saelcove"? What an asinine comment.

      The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms apply to everyone there bud, regardless of sexual orientation. They DO have equal rights under the law partner. Thanks Robert

      Try learning how to spell Seal Cove. You'll probably sound smarter. Then again, if you're talking about the "gay agenda", sounding smart is probably a lost cause for you.
