“Same-sex lovin’ is common in hundreds of species, scientists say… According to University of Oslo zoologist Petter Böckman, about 1,500 animal species are known to practice same-sex coupling, including bears, gorillas, flamingos, owls, salmon and many others.” [Fox News]

      Gay flamingos? Surprise!

      But, seriously, you’d think the fact that same sex relationships clearly exist in a wide variety of animals would make people reject the notion that it’s against nature, right? But, of course it doesn’t. Because that’s not really why so many people oppose homosexuality, they oppose it because they’re xenophobic and angry and scared of difference. All of the ‘reasons’ based on religion, nature, health etc. they give are just a means of justifying their pre-existing prejudices.

      But if gawd wanted two men together, he woulda made Adam and Steve – not Adam and Eve! But if he’d wanted to not encourage incest, he’d have made another couple – so Cain and Able would have to pork their sisters!
