Let's keep it simple. The next time, say, gay marriage comes up in conversation, perhaps you say, well, you know, I don't really get the gay thing at all and certainly my anxiety about it is rooted somewhere too deep and sad to explore right now, but I've been doing a bit of actual homework (!), and it turns out that homosexuality is simply all over the animal kingdom, across all sorts of species, and animals seem to enjoy it for both survival and pleasure. Who knew?
In other words, nature seems to approve. And isn't nature merely God in a nice grass suit?
As your baffled pals pick their jaws up off the floor, you can add: Hell, science is pretty much proving homosexuality is biological anyway, not a "lifestyle" choice at all. And gays in the military? Hell, if the badass Israeli army can handle it, the United States sure as hell can, am I right?

The reasoning in the above is amazing for its myopia.
...it turns out that homosexuality is simply all over the animal kingdom, across all sorts of species, and animals seem to enjoy it for both survival and pleasure. Who knew?
Let's just emulate the animals shall we. Let's see, let's be lions today. How wide and strong can I make my jaw the better to kill and devour while my brainwaves hover somewhere around the theta range or the level of a predacious trance. Really, the idea that homosexuality is a good thing because animals with nearly zero cerebral cortex engage in it is stupid. It shows a real lack of using that grey matter. Why not be snakes today. Then we can have offspring and just slither away without the least bit maternal or paternal instinct. Who needs nurturing when nature shows that there are other species that don't use it?
We aren't to lower ourselves to the level of the animals. We're to raise the spirit of the whole Earth so the "wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." Isaiah 11:6
Homosexuality is certainly biological. What human behavior isn't tied in with the biological until we are nothing but spirit? It's also a choice. There is no human being who has to engage in homosexuality. One may always refuse. There is no biological benefit. In fact, homosexuality is biologically harmful. "Homosexuals: What they ignore."
What kind of argument for antiwar is pointing to the Israeli military and its sexual depravity? The article is against Bush and his war, etc., but here's this Mark Morford pointing to militarists to make the case for homosexuality. Are you antiwar or not? If you're antiwar, you're anti-Israeli military. You can't then turn around and cite the Israeli military as proof that being a homosexual won't ruin the military and remain at all consistent. You know, the people on the left (their own self-style left, a false left) need to get to some root thinking.
Animals use homosexuality for survival? In what does any animal need the confusion of homosexuality in order to survive? Also, to all the serpents out there, nature is not merely God in a nice grass suit.
"...anxiety about it is rooted somewhere too deep and sad to explore right now." This is psychological mumbo jumbo. What is wrong with homosexuality is exactly what I've written is wrong with it in "Homosexuals: What they ignore."
