Are homosexuals soon to be extinct?

There is a lot of chatter all over the web about the religious implications of homosexuality. Some like Phil believe that homos cannot get into heaven. The LGBT community believe that homos have the same rights to heaven as everyone else. So who is right?

Are we judging the homos because they sin differently from us? Most all Christians agree that we all fall short of the Glory of God. We are all sinners and we must accept that Jesus is the only way to gain entrance into heaven.

So, if we are all sinners and we all fall short of the Glory of God and we all need Jesus to get into heaven, why is that the homos are left out?

Well, since most Christians accept that we are all sinners, most Christians also believe that sinners must repent of their sins and try to become a better version of theirselves each day. Repenting of our sins seems to me what we need to focus on.

Of course, to be repentant of homosexuality, the homosexual must first admit that homosexuality is in fact a sin. Since the Bible list homosexuality as a sin (1 Timothy 1, 10, and 1 Corinthians, 6, 9), we will assume it is a sin in this post.

If we have a person that sins by having sex outside of marriage, that person is in a state of sin and should that person die, they couldn't get into heaven since they were in a sinful state. So how does this person repent of their sins? Whether you see a priest or join a support group, to be truly repentant, that person must stop the behavior that is creating the sin.

In the case of homosexuals, they can consider themself  homosexual but they must stop committing the sin to get into heaven. The only way to do this is to be celebate. If a homosexual is celebate, they are not committing any sin, they are repentant, and will have the same chance as anyone else in getting into heaven. At least, this is what Christians believe.

So let's take religion out of the discussion. Let's look at this from a polar opposite view. Hell, lets just drag Darwin into the discussion.

Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection

  1. More individuals are produced each generation that can survive.
  2. Phenotypic variation exists among individuals and the variation is heritable.
  3. Those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment will survive.
  4. When reproductive isolation occurs new species will form.

If all the homo men were put on one continent by themselves, all the homo women were put on another
continent by themselves and all the hetro couples were on another continent with no way to interact
with the other groups, what would happen?

Within one generation only hetro couples would be left. By Darwin's way of thinking, this makes the
homo population a weaker group who will not be able to procreate thus leading to their extinction.
Although Darwin states that when reproductive isolation occurs, new species will form, that cannot
happen within one generation.

So whi is right and who is wrong? That question will never have a standard answer. It comes down
to what each person believes. I know this much though, it will be interesting to watch this unfold in
the future.

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc-ra-cy)

a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected mostly by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers

New quote for 2012

Those who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House

One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota.All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does somemeasuring, then works some figures with a pencil.“Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900: $400 formaterials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, thensays, “I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for mycrew and $100 profit for me.”The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over tothe White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like theother guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you,and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.”“Done!” replies the government official.

And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan works!

The Seabag

There was a time when everything you owned had to fit in your seabag. Remember those nasty rascals? Fully packed, one of the suckers weighed more than the poor devil hauling it. The damn things weighed a ton and some idiot with an off-center sense of humor sewed a carry handle on it to help you haul it. Hell, you could bolt a handle on a Greyhound bus but it wouldn't make the damn thing portable. The Army, Marines, and Air Force got footlockers and WE got a big ole' canvas bag.
After you warped your spine jackassing the goofy thing through a bus or train station, sat on it waiting for connecting transportation and made folks mad because it was too damn big to fit in any overhead rack on any bus, train, and airplane ever made, the contents looked like hell. All your gear appeared to have come from bums who slept on park benches. Traveling with a seabag was something left over from the "Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum" sailing ship days. Sailors used to sleep in hammocks, so you stowed your issue in a big canvas bag and lashed your hammock to it, hoisted it on your shoulder and, in effect, moved your entire home from ship to ship.
I wouldn't say you traveled light because with ONE strap it was a one shoulder load that could torque your skeletal frame and bust your ankles.
It was like hauling a dead linebacker.
They wasted a lot of time in boot camp telling you how to pack one of the suckers. There was an officially sanctioned method of organization that you forgot after ten minutes on the other side of the gate at Great Lakes or San Diego.
You got rid of a lot of the 'issue' gear when you went to a SHIP. Did
you EVER know a tin-can sailor who had a raincoat? A flat hat? One of those nut-hugger knit swimsuits? How bout those 'roll-your-own' neckerchiefs... the ones girls in a good Naval tailor shop would cut down & sew into a 'greasy snake' for two bucks?
Within six months, EVERY fleet sailor was down to ONE set of dress blues, port & starboard, undress blues, and whites, a couple of white hats, boots, shoes, a watch cap, assorted skivvies, a pea coat, and three sets of bleached-out dungarees.
The rest of your original issue was either in the pea coat locker, lucky bag, or had been reduced to wipe-down rags in the paint locker. Underway ships were NOT ships that allowed vast accumulation of private gear.
Hobos who lived in discarded refrigerator crates could amass greater
loads of pack-rat crap than fleet sailors. The confines of a
canvas-back rack, side locker, and a couple of bunk bags did NOT allow one to live a Donald Trump existence.
Space and the going pay scale combined to make us envy the lifestyle of a mud-hut Ethiopian. We were global equivalents of nomadic Mongols without ponies to haul our stuff.
And after the rigid routine of boot camp, we learned the skill of random compression, known by mothers world-wide as 'cramming'. It is amazing what you can jam into a space no bigger than a bread-box if you pull a watch cap over a boot and push it with your foot.
Of course, it looks kinda weird when you pull it out, but they NEVER hold fashion shows at sea and wrinkles added character to a 'salty' appearance.
There was a four-hundred mile gap between the images on recruiting
posters and the ACTUAL appearance of sailors at sea. It was NOT without justifiable reason that we were called the tin-can Navy.
We operated on the premise that if 'Cleanliness was next to Godliness' we must be next to the other end of that spectrum...
We looked like our clothing had been pressed with a waffle iron and
packed by a bulldozer. But what in hell did they expect from a bunch of swabs that lived in a crew's hole of a 2100 Fletcher Class can? After awhile you got used to it... You got used to everything you owned picking up and retaining that distinctive aroma... You got used to old ladies on busses taking a couple of wrinkled nose sniffs of your pea coat, then getting and finding another seat.
Sometimes, I look at all the crap stacked in my garage and home, close my eyes and smile, remembering a time when EVERYTHING I owned could be crammed into that one canvas bag...

Hank Jr

Hank Williams Jr. apologized for comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler Sunday in a Fox News interview. It’s all smoothed over now.

Within two days, the surviving members of the Hitler family appeared on German television and accepted Hank’s apology
