    Homosexuality is probably the most discussed and debated issue on this board. Certainly more than "Home Improvement", "Canada" or "Photography" which all have their own topics. Should "Homosexuality" be given its own topic so that the people who are interested (not to mention those who are obsessed) know where to post and congregate?

    I agree--it's starting to permeate the place. May as well try to quarantine it to it's own forum.

    So where would a Rep. Foley discussion go? Homosexuality or Politics?
    And what about religious discussions about homosexuality? In the religion/ethics forum or the new forum?

    threads about Foley wander into areas like what causes homosexuality. I'm like nuc----if there was a forum about homosexuality, that aspect of the Foley situation could be discussed there.

    Same with religion--How GOd feels about homosexuality could be discussed there.

    Those are very good questions. Maybe it could work like this: If the thread is primarily about homosexuality, the thread starter can post it in the "Homosexuality" forum initially. If instead it is one of the thousands of threads that gets hijacked from its original intent and turned into a rant about homosexuality, maybe the moderater can move it to "Homosexuality" after it has reached tipping point. Or perhaps they could just have a thread called "Homosexuality rant" where they truncate certain threads and dump the rants there like a toxic waste dump.
