Fanning the Flames...

The arguments surrounding gay marriage continue. Currently, the only state to permit the practice of same sex unions, at least in the legal sense, has taken up a vote to keep a law banning gay marriage and civil unions alive. While I take the libertarian approach to this issue and consider the arguments as largely an exercise in semantics, a new new science exhibit may smash the argument between nature and nurture wide open.

The idea that animals naturally gravitate toward homosexuality will more than shock those who consider the alternative lifestyle as a blight on God's creation. It implies that homosexuality is part of the grand design, or at least has a role. While this will fail to deter the most adamant of the religious right, if true it could lead to a change in education and how we see homosexuality on a macro-social level.
