Sorry for not being clear. I'm not saying that i know that it's something passed along genetically. I have no idea. I'm just responding to the hypothetical question and saying that both evolution and genetic homosexuality can be true at the same time. While I believe you are correct (they haven't found the gay genetics), studies suggest that there is a genetic component.

Sure, that's always a valid point. But once you start picking winners and losers by only issuing licenses and status to one group, what's the compelling state interest in excluding the other?

Prostitution, murder, gambling, age of consent ... which of those are not morality laws? Ima thinkin ... all laws are based in morality. Freedoms exist within a social, then religious, then legal (the order may be wrong, and the level of powers that enforce them) ... code of ethics and morality.

Thousands of years of history, with rules developed to make a society function better ... but you have it figured out they were wrong. "zero bearing on my life as I'm neither gay nor a polygamist." yeah right ... giving entitlements to any "marriages" you don't perceive as influencing your life should be allowed. You know the original colonies demanded their residents attend church…

Morality cannot be legislated. Period. When you start making morality laws, then freedom doesn't exist any more. While some might laugh at using the example, look at the movie DEMOLITION MAN. One of the running gags in that movie is when someone says a "bad word", Big-Brother-Is-Always-Listening computer buzzes and issues a fine for a "violation of the verbal moralities code". If that's…

Entrepreneurs compete for venture capital funds by pitching ideas that change the energy landscape

From from Chicago Tribune:

That sign in your hotel room that suggests reusing your towel to help the environment? Gary Eden wants to make it a relic of the past.

"We've all been putting thousands of tons of chlorine containing chemicals into our water," said Eden, president of EP Purification. "It's in our swimming pools, it's in our bathtubs, it's everywhere."

His solution: ozone.

By super-oxygenating water, said Eden, commercial laundry facilities — like the kinds used in prisons, nursing homes and hotels — can save tens of thousands of dollars, cut the use of chemicals in half, reduce drying times and save energy by eliminating the need for hot water.

The Champaign-based startup walked away with $100,000 at Thursday's Clean Energy Challenge in Chicago after holding up a palm-size aluminum card with the power to pump ozone into 60 gallons of water per minute to destroy bacteria.

"The ozone does the washing," said Eden, who estimated that three 80-pound commercial washers, each armed with the company's $500-$1,000 device, would save a 400-room hotel $25,000 a year, cutting its washing costs in about half.

EP Purification was among 15 nascent companies that vied for $500,000 in prizes at the event, hosted by the Clean Energy Trust, a Chicago-based nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the development of clean energy businesses in the Midwest.
