OSLO (Reuters) - The birds and the bees may be gay, according to the world's first museum exhibition about homosexuality among animals.

With documentation of gay or lesbian behavior among giraffes, penguins, parrots, beetles, whales and dozens of other creatures, the Oslo Natural History Museum concludes human homosexuality cannot be viewed as "unnatural". (link to article below)

Of course there has been a fairly noticeable uproar among the heterosexual community and those who value marriage, as a result of this news article, but I will not take the time to address this, because I do not want this post to turn into a large discussion on whether or not homosexuality is "natural." Obviously, animals do many things (such as mate in public, lick their own genitals, use the bathroom in public, murder and even eat their own), which humans do not accept nor do (without consequences), and we do not base our morals and standards of conduct on what we see animals doing. However, there is something kind of humorous in the way that the press has now equated gay people with penguins, giraffes, beetles, and whales.

NO, I would like to turn my attention to a much more overlooked part of the article:

One radical Christian said organizers of the exhibition -- partly funded by the Norwegian government -- should "burn in hell"

This is the most offensive part of this whole article to me, much more so than the opinion presented as fact that homosexuality is natural. If it was one "Christian," then why give all the Christians in the world this assocation by mentioning that this person identifies himself with Christianity? The slanted news media is trying to estrange the entire Christian population by assocating them with this ONE PERSON. They take a single individual and use him to paint a picture of "Christians." And since when does anyone in the media care what "one radical Christian" says? Any time a sports coach starts to mention anything about God in an ESPN interview, they cut him off immediately.

Furthermore, this article uses a typical fiction story structure to sway the minds of the masses:
The Protagonist: The gay community
The Antagonist: The Christian community (and anyone who agrees with them)
The Hero: The "gay" animals aka "Nature"

A new question: If a dog tries to mate with a stuffed animal, what is he? fluffosexual?
