You would have to ask a different gay about that.

But speaking of gays having chore sex -
If you think about it 2 homosexuals of opposite genders having sex purely for the purposes of procreation is exactly what the various religions should be promoting.
Ticks all their boxes.

You can have decency, empathy, compassion, and love for your fellow humans, be accepting of all colours, creeds, gay people etc and not believe in god or the church,
There was never any agnostic crusades, no atheist inquisitions, all that type of stuff was left for the so called religious people.
go figure
This is very true. You are in fact more of a decent person if you’re atheist and a good person. If you’re religious, you could just be being good for fear of the afterlife. At least we know good atheists are genuinely good people

Actually, we don't know that. While good athiests are unlikely to be motivated in their goodmess by a basically selfish hope of benefitting themselves in an afterlife, they could certainly be acting out of other basically selfish motives.

spot on, that is why the churches are full of old people who know their time of termination is due, so they suddenly feel the need to pray and possibly hedge their bets.


Likewise , ever notice all the people who "find god" are the same people who have pissed off everyone else, and when they have exhausted all their options suddenly the claim to find god, and decree themselves as a good person.
