Thread: If Gay Penguins can exist, then how can being gay be called 'unnatural' ?

  1. #1

    Default If Gay Penguins can exist, then how can being gay be called 'unnatural' ?

    Scientists in Denmark have managed to get a couple of gay penguins to successfully adopt an egg and raise their adopted young. Gay penguins do also exist in the wild.
    So where does this evidence leave the leaders of various religions/ideologies who persecute gays and label their behaviour 'unnatural' ?
    Any thoughts, comments, observations ? Please keep the discussion polite and respectful, at all times.

    How about gender-balance in immigration into ireland ? Is it currently 40 blokes arriving for every 1 woman arriving on these shores ?

    I blame the penguins' parents.

    To be honest I don't need the example of penguins to accept that homosexuality is natural. Nor do I need a study like this to dismiss the awfulness of bigoted numbskulls.

    It seems to be a complete waste of money. But if the chick dies young there will be a few idiots who will rely on it as proof to support their bigotry. Anyone who still thinks homosexuality is unnatural can be easily dismissed as a fool and there would be little point in arguing with them.

    What thesis were the researchers trying to test?

    That gay penguins with an adopted chick will generate welcome publicity for researchers playing the role of the adoption agency?

    Penguins, like the late Jimmy Savile, are also into necrophilia.
