What a crock of shiat.

Homosexual couples were A-OK all throughout the "pagan" era.
It's modern christianity that has ostracized sex between both homosexual AND heterosexual couples. Sex under them is a terrible INHUMAN thing. Why is the Pope a fag child farker? WHY? Well, the last 2 thousand years of western thought doesn't want to tell you why. And neither does the reporter of the article.

Man + Man and Woman + Woman has been around forever, just like in the animal kingdom.
No... contrary to what you may think of my motives for bringing this up, I am a guy who goes for girls. But this "surprise" BS needs to stop.

Anyway ... Here is the best history book (new window) anyone could have about pagan Rome in the days of Nero. If you actually read it you won't need to ask me why it wasn't required programming in state education. It's too "dangerous" or truthy... your pick.

Well, David in the Bible paid 200 Philistine foreskins for his wife. To top it off the asking price was only 100 foreskins, I guess he felt like leaving a tip.

I believe the Italian Army suffered that humiliating fate in Abyssinia in the 19th century.

There were other religions where homosexuality was bad before "modern Christianity" said so. Also Christians don't think that sex is bad. The bible says to be "Fruitful and multiply." Sounds like God wants us to fark. Just not fark with people who have the same equipment.

Meh, a little homoeroticism never hurt a culture. Just look at the Greeks, for fark's sake.

Go back to the Greeks - where homosexuality was encouraged. Wife was nothing more than a means for children.

Or maybe they were just tossed into a grave and their arms fell on each other.

Seeing as how they were buried with no artifacts they could have been murdered robbed, and buried to hide the crime. But that would make no headlines, so the must be "Brothers in Arms"

Once I heard about a really warped dude from England. He would pick up other guys at the bar, have Saxon and off with them for a few hours, Danegeld them when they fell asleep. They caught him and put him in jail.

An awful lot of Christians think that if sex isn't for the purpose of procreation, then it's sinful. They're also down on toys & other 'marital aids'. Or leaving the lights on.

Of course, an awful lot of Christians cherry-pick the Bible or otherwise interpret it according to their own idealogies, and then announce what it is that God wants to the rest of us.

Not true, my friend.

Many of the Viking era codes prohibited homosexual behavior, if you were a bottom.

'We think they could have been buried as brothers in arms.'

Yeah, cuz badass warriors are NEVER erotically attracted to other badass warriors.

Rome didn't fall until the homo emperors stopped running things and Christianity became the state religion. It's called history, folks. Deal with it.

Really? You think Christianity was the cause of the fall? Not limitless hordes of Germanic barbarians those earlier emperors had butchered and enslaved-now trained and equipped by Roman supplied arms? Not brilliant manipulative men like Gaiseric
or Alaric the Great?
What about the Huns? They attacked because Rome had decided to convert?

Actually, the main reason gays aren't allowed to be open in the military is simple logistics.

In boot camp, they live 80 to a squad bay with no privacy. They also take showers in a shower room with 10 shower heads 40 at a time (4 dudes rotate on one shower head).

Adding open gays to this is a major fail for morale on both sides. No straight dude wants some dude overtly checking out his junk, no gay guy is going to make it out of there uninjured if he gets caught checking out someone's junk.

In the fleet, the equivalent of a small studio apartment is shared by three dudes who have to change in front of each other because the bathroom (or should I say head) is barely large enough for a shower and a shiatter.

More rape for the rest of the Saxons. And the gays only pilliage the stuff that will look nice in their homes. "Oh, I wouldn't pilliage that. It would look awful in my living room. And you know, you're going to have to carry it back and that's going to just wreck your back."

If I'm not mistaken it was either the Pharoh Rameses or the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzer who ordered a count of all the fallen enemy soldiers. In order to count the fallen, the winning soldiers were to go out and remove the right hands of the enemy. When both right and left hands were submitted for the count, the winning soldiers were told to go back to the battlefield and remove the deceased enemies penises and bring them back for an more accurate representation of the death toll.

No, I don't think that at all. In trying to keep my comments pithy, I oversimplified.

Everything you're pointing out is factual. I was actually responding to the born-again canard that homosexuality brought down the Roman Empire. It did not. In truth, there's no real correlation. But if someone wants to link same-sexing to Rome's fall, he or she needs to deal with the fact that during its height it was ruled by homos. It wasn't the gay "sissification" of the government that brought about its downfall.

Or Christianity either, for that matter.

I've heard this argument many times. So it's for gay people's protection then, eh? No gay man with any sense is going to 'overtly' check out your 'junk' in the shower room. At best, it'd be a very quick glance which you'd be hard-pressed (innuendo) to notice.

Also, there are ALREADY gay men in the military, and yet, there are no mass beatings and mayhem due to gay men 'checking out other guys' junk.'
 
2008-09-10 08:52:40 AM
If there are no artifacts, then how exactly do we know that these are warriors? Is there some evidence of trauma in the skeletal remains that is consistent with a violent demise perhaps? At the most all we really know is that these are 2 males, one of which had more "feminine" characteristics. Unless there is something I missed in the article (possible, it's early) or not reported, then this really doesn't say much about Saxon practices regarding homosexual/engendered relationships in their military.
 
2008-09-10 08:54:13 AM
Also, why is it that just because two male skeletons happened to be arranged like that, people assume that they must have had 'teh ghey?'
