    Many would think that enforcing anti sodomy laws are a thing of the past, but don't tell that to Virginia Attorney General and Republican candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli. Mr. Cuccinelli appealed a ruling by a three judge panel that struck down Virginia's anti sodomy "Crimes Against Nature" law because they ruled that it was unconstitutional. Thankfully the entire Fourth Circuit court of appeals agreed with the original ruling and unanimously rejected Mr. Cuccinelli's appeal.

    Mr. Cuccinelli is the Republican nominee for Governor of Virginia and one can only imagine what his legislative priorities will be if he is elected. Virginia is increasingly becoming a purple state, but don't think that Mr. Cuccinelli cares about that for one second. Even though President Obama carried the state both in 2008 and 2012, their state legislature it is still dominated by a Republican House and evenly split in the Senate, with Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling having been the tie breaker a record 28 times. Mr. Bolling didn't side with the Democrats one time, effectively rendering their even split useless.

    The people of Virginia will definitely have a choice when they hit the voting booths this November 5th. Do they want to continue fighting the culture wars of the 20th Century? Or do they want to move into the 21st Century finally? I guess we will have to wait a few months before we find out.

    I do not agree with sodomy, but any laws against it would be a law based upon morals. For one to impress his morals upon another is not in line with a "Free Country". Yes I'm aware "Free Country" is a fable that is taught in schools, but that's not the online lies we are taught in school.

    Just wondering - what exactly is it about sodomy that makes you uneasy?

    It does not make me uneasy, I'm a firm believer in staying out of others biz. My personal opinion comes from the laws of nature and survival of the species. Every living thing on earth, is only here for one thing when you get to the basic fact. That is propagation to insure the survival of the species. The act of sodomy would not be promotive of this theory. Humans like to make existence difficult by their very nature. It's the down fall of intelligence and advance thought.

    That is one way to look at it and I respect your opinion. My issue with it, however, is that homosexuality is inherent in multiple species. It is not a human phenomena and we as humans need to stop treating it as such. If you actually dive into the various amounts of species that exhibit homosexual behavior, you might be surprised. It is a lot more common than many are led to believe.

    If you really believe the meaning of life is to propagate then one has to ask "If you can't reproduce why should you be allowed to exist?"

    How do you know what the only reason humans have to exist is, do you really mean you believe what you believe simply because of what your religion taught you as a young child?

    Fully agree that every living thing has the right to exist; humans should not be deciding that about any living thing; however we do via the slaughterhouse anyway; nature never intended that. look at wild life, it has less diseases than the human kind, it keeps nature in balance and un-poluted. Humans are the worst parasites on earth and are even fighting their own species.

    I feel that homosexuality is not a conscious choice, I believe homosexuals are born that way. their brains are prewired before the actual thought or act ever happens. You are correct about homosexuality existing in nature. It's from those observations that I draw my conclusions. Animals are not bound by the restraints of morals.

    My thoughts are not formed by religion, they are from my observations and thoughts, why does the Oak tree have so many acorns, why does the frog have so many eggs, why does the deer grow so large horns, why do we do what we do? The meaning of life is to propagate, if a species is unable to, their species cease to exist, then there is no life for them.

    Not all the time. God put the clitoris 1.2 light years away from the vagina just to see if you could pay attention to details and keep his greatest creation happy.

    That argument does not apply either to us or the Bonobo. We be just a bit different from the other mammals.
