Homosexuality

I do not think homosexuals have different fundamental desires than heterosexuals.

I disagree.  I think in most homosexuals the desire for sexual interaction can be differentiated from a desire for a permanent best friend.  I think the latter even in most homosexuals is inherently non-sexual, but inherently same-sex ordered.

Or are you suggesting that we can reduce all desire for companionship to a base desire to procreate, and that because of our ability to reason, we are able to separate the communitive goal from the procreative?  If that's the case, I disagree even more strongly.  Such a description ultimately robs humanity of its soul.
