In general "I'm right because I think I'm smart" is not a good debate strategy.

Other than the slight error in where the decimal point goes, I don't think he's too far off.

Yes, but anyone who can read and write can say the same thing.

From a thread purporting to have evidence that the pope emeritus is gay, and the RCC is covering it up (Stundie in bold):

A companion who acts gay (despite having dated women in his youth which a lot of gay men have done).
In a profession that appears to have a larger proportion of gay men than some other professions.
Amidst a scandal that involves gay men in the Vatican.

So heterosexual behavior is evidence of homosexuallity. Who knew?

When you become pope and have to wear a lot of ceremonial clothing and holy jewelry.

I thought the bit about "his liking fancy clothes and rituals means he's gay" was more likely to be nominated. By that standard, every priest, ever, regardless of religion, has been gay!

Well, no. You see, he dated women in his youth, and the experience was so traumatic that he went into a profession that gave him cover for never having to do so again.

Although my interpretation is that would make him not so much homosexual, but heterophobic.

I suppose the sex with girls and women, and Fathers becoming fathers, is also a sign of being gay.

He has to give those up starting today though. Maybe he's turning back to hetro. Newswatch item: public waits to see the colour of ex-pope's shoes. Will they be brown? black, green, yellow, red......? If he was Ukranian we might expect purple.

Does it work in reverse?

I dated men in my youth, but nowadays I'm happily married to a woman.

Does that mean I've been straight all along?
