    I’m not a big Donald Trump fan. I actually preferred Ted Cruz in the primary. My real choice is the Transhumanist Party; they don’t have the votes though.

    Pro-choice does not imply pro-abortion, in fact I have never met anyone who was pro-abortion. Considering how much of a hash we heterosexuals have made of marriage I don't think homosexuals will do any worse.

    Speaking as a Christian who thinks deeply about such matters. my conclusion is that Christians right from the earliest times have been focused on the sexual behaviour not on the relationship between the people. What we have failed to appreciate is that sexual behaviour is actually a very small part of what it means for two people to really love each other. We have failed to recognize that homosexual people can love each other deeply and wish to live with each other exclusively for life.

    Between heterosexuals most people really do not much care about how the love is sexually expressed. It can cover a whole range of sexual behaviours --- genital, oral, anal, bondage, domination, sado-masochism etc etc. Why then do we care about how love is sexually expressed among same sex couples?

    In the past certainly, and to a lesser extent at the present, homosexuals have been constrained to deny their natural instincts. If they are expressed at all, they have had to be expressed secretly. The sexual instinct is extremely powerful and regardless of sexual orientation it will find a means to be expressed. Let us strive for a society in which that love can be expressed in a manner that is healthy and fulfilling for both people in a way that supports the larger needs of a healthy society. This is why I support same sex marriage --- it can only enhance marriage, not threaten it. We heterosexual people are enough of a threat already to the institution of marriage.

    No, no it is not and no matter how often you repeat it the "Male and female He made them" is still not a coherent reason for not allowing LBGTI people to marry.

    As well as the legalization of prostitution. :eek:

    ☐ Option E6-D-1. [Based on Proposal by Martin van der Kroon]

    The United States Transhumanist Party supports the right for individuals to have autonomy over, and utilize their bodies to earn money, including through activities such as prostitution, as long as such activities arise from a person’s own free will (e.g., not under duress), and the person is not endangering the health or well-being of others.

    Legalization would give those who wish to engage in prostitution the safety and protection of the law – for example, so that they may report abuse and would be prone to being exploited. It would also open the possibility for such individuals to unionize if they wish to do so. Furthermore, legalization would decrease government spending on what is ultimately a ‘moral crusade’.

    If your real choice is the Transhumanist Party then you would support gay rights and transgenders.

    The reason I am a Transhumanist is because I want advancement in science and technology; it has nothing to do with abortion, transgenders, or gays. The party may support it but I personally don’t.
