Are you talking about exclusively homosexual in that figure?

Maybe its time to start to slow the procreation train down a bit?
The future of mankind does rely on procreation. There is no way around that. If people stopped having babies, the human race would completely die out within slightly more than a century.

so I don't see it as being opposed to God's big plan or something when a man falls in love with a man or a woman with a woman
I understand what you're saying now; it's just that the phrase you used, "the future of mankind does not rely on procreation" makes it seem as if you are saying that making babies isn't a necessary thing for human life to continue.

There's another estimate that puts the number at around 3 %.

Melon
And I wasn't really making any sort of point about homosexuality at all; I try my best to stay away from that subject. I was just responding to someone saying that the future of mankind doesn't rely on procreation.

There are indeed way too many miscreants who have no business procreating. You won't get an argument from me on that point.

I will watch my phrasing from now on
in my defense I did say "especially when the future of mankind doesn't rely on procreation that heavily that we need each and everone of us to contribute" instead of "the future of mankind does not rely on procreation"

hmmm, ok, I will still watch my phrasing from now on
but you were really just butchering up what I said there

Actually, now that I read it in light of your explanation, I understand it. Originally, I could not figure out where you were saying at all. I think the "that heavily" bit threw me off; I didn't understand anything from that point on. Sorry.

indeed.

and there are gay people who want children. perhaps gay people are very much a part of procreation -- there's more children produced than can be taken care of, so perhaps God does have a plan for homosexuals after all.

There are also many straight people who can't have children who want children.

God does have plans for homosexual people. He's got plans for all people. Whether we listen or not, whether we obey him or not, is totally up to each one of us. But he's got plans.

I have no idea what any of this has to do with U2 and Sexuality.

Frankly, I think U2 summed it all up when Bono began humping the camera.
