Once homosexuality is accepted, the floodgates are opened and society begins to fall apart as all forms of sexual deviance become acceptable.
There are already groups out there using the exact same rhetoric as the Gay Rights movement to argue in favor of things like pedophilia, polygamy and bestiality. So, we might be having this exact same conversation in 20 years in regard to child molesters.
I cant see Necrophilia ever being accepted...but ironically NOT because of the implied sexual motive.
The Zeitgeist of the time changes, its true...and its changed for the last five hundred years towards the more liberal...that is not to say it wont revert...think about how society has changed...500 years ago there was no Church without Rome, Women did not have the Vote, Blacks were slaves, Devource was unthinkable, Homosexuality was illegal...and necrophilia, peadophilia and beastiality were...simply not heard of.
Living to the age of 50 was a winner.
Now A large proportion of Christendom says Rome is no Church at all, Women can vote and work, Devorce is more commonplace then Long Term Relationships when applied to Marriage, Blacks are no longer thought of as sub human or eternally in bondage, infact the Slave trade has vanished all togther in that aspect (though not it would seem in the selling of young Hatian Lads who are orphans from the disastor...and the tabloids tell me they are rather cheap considering the current financial crisis...) Homosexuals can do what they like...and people living to 100 has led to problems that noone could have forsaw when designing the financial world...pensions...diseases...etc
