However, seeing as there are none...
As an intellectual excercise I will attempt to put forth a valid argument against homosexuality.
1. It is good for society if all members can procreate with someone who they love.
2. Homosexuals cannot procreate with the people they love.
Therefore heterosexuality is more preferrable to society than homosexuality.

Think again. And do open that dictionary I mentioned.

Therefore homosexuality is not good for society.

Are you trying to tell me that the only sex you have ever, ever, had has been procreational sex? Ever? (Because of the answer is yes, I think you might want to put the bible down, leave this place and go have some recreational sex. Would do you a world of good).

And if you honestly believe that a person is only "good for society" if they procreate, you live in a sad, sad world, not to mention that you just discarded all the achievements that we owe to single, childless people.

Also, two more words for you - human overpopulation. The days when people breeding like animals was considered something to be proud of are gone.

And your last sentence is one of the most offensive I've seen on these boards.

By the same token, religion has caused and continue to cause immense suffering in this world. Thus, it is not only "not good" for society, but is extremely harmful to it. What do you suggest we do about that?

Really? I mean, really?!

Do you know the difference between not common and unnatural?

I suggest you open a dictionary.
Quote:If you say " homosexuality is natural because it occurs in nature", the critic is going to think your an idiot who doesn't understand what "natural" means. And the sad part is the critic has some justification because you didn't make a compelling counter argument.
Don't bring it back to the natural/unnatural dichotomy (with which you're obviously groping somewhat). I said that your suggestion that normal people should use the same definitions as bigots, is flawed, as that would imply they, too, should start pulling "arguments" out of their asses. Which is what gay rights "critics" do.
I took your suggestion and opened a dictionary.

In the Word English Dictionary the third defintion of natural is "As is normal or to be expected; ordinary or logical".

Well, that proves it. You were right all along.

No wait, you weren't. Seriously, if you're gonna be "debating", a bit more thought and facts, as opposed to regurgitated and already dismissed crap. would come in handy.

You are conflating sex with the ability to procreate. You are conflating the value of an individual with the value of homosexuality. You are conflating an ability to procreate with a mandate to procreate. Your mention of overpopulation and religion are red herrings. You suggested I open a dictionary....and I did. Now I have a suggestion for you. You would benefit from some education in critical thinking and argumentation.
Start watching Kevin deLaplante short classes on critical thinking and argumentation(its completely secular).

Don't you worry about me. Just make sure there's enough oxygen in that bubble of yours. Lack of oxygen to the brain is not good for you.

A quick question: do you think only certain sexual positions are "normal", just the ones that could possibly lead to the ultimate goal of every human being - to procreate?

If you like to make a list of errors, let's start here:

You say, intellectual exercise, and then all you do is make an assertion without merit. I fail to see the reasoning or validity.

How is it good for society in this day in age if everyone could procreate with someone they love? That means absolutely nothing and the concept of there being able to be more people is not what many would call good for society anyway.
