Dear Banjo,

Hinduism recognises that life has four purposes:
1) Artha - building up security through wealth, influence, health, fame, etc.
2) Kama - pleasure
3) Dharma - doing the right thing
4) Moksha - ultimate liberation

The pursuit of Moksha is rare. Dharma too for its own sake is not as common. Souls need time and practice to evolve there, lifetimes in fact before they genuinely want Dharma and Moksha, so on attaining humanhood they first seek Artha and Kama, that's the natural ladder of life, nothing wrong about it.

Sex can also be used for Dharma, when procreation is called for, but most times it is used for Kama, thus sex that is not for the sake of procreation is a particular case of seeking Kama and is not encouraged for those who seek the higher goals - not because it is wrong (assuming it does not hurt others), just because it creates a distraction from the main goal.

Homosexual activity is thus just another case of Kama. There is no reason for people who are anyway at the level of evolution where they seek Kama to abstain from that particular pleasure.

Homosexuality is not "perfectly natural". Sex is the natural way to procreate. It is enjoyable so that people and a animals keep procreating. Homosexuality is an unnatural perversion of nature. And no amount of warped thinking by people who are not perverts themselves, but think that they are being tolerant - when they are just being plain stupid - will alter the facts of nature one little bit.

If a few people want to, or have to, act in an unnatural manner among themselves, let them. But for heaven's sake stop talking bullshite and making excuses for them. They are going to do if anyway.

HIV, Monkey Pox, whatever pops up next, is nature's way of dealing with the unnatural.

Hi Yuyutsu,

Thanks for the insight into Hinduism. I've been trying to familiarise myself with the complexities of Buddhism over the years, but have barely scratched the surface. I'm sure Hinduism, like Buddhism, is a deep and complex set of principles that one could not completely understand in a lifetime.

BTW; I find Buddhism far more complex in its philosophy, teaching and understanding than Christianity. I would think Hinduism would be the same in that respect. I recognise the terms Artha, Karma, Dharma, and Moksha as they also apply to Buddhism.

The point of epidemiology is to determine the transmission vectors for various diseases so that the transmission can be interrupted. For example, bird flu is most frequently transmitted between birds such as geese and chickens and the people that live with them.

The steps to halt the spread of the disease will then focus on these transmission hot spots without judgement on the farmers.

Similarly, if a particular segment of a population is a transmission hot spot, the focus should be on them without judgement.
