Amuk the problem as I see it, isn't that gays are having sex, its that they want to bring thier sexual practice into schools,courthouses, etc.
Gays are wanting to have sex in schools and courthouses? I must have missed that one. I have seen where they are trying to force religion into schools
and courthouses though are you opposed to that also?
A man or men have the right to do anything they damn well want to to each other within thier own homes, its when they bring thier predilictons into
public that I have a problem.
So JWs and Mormons shouldn't be allowed to go door to door? You are AGAINST public displays of religion? Should Christians be forced stop telling me
Jesus loves me?
I myself will not faint at the sight of two men kissing OR the Ten Commandments on a courthouse lawn OR a Manger scene during Christmas, etc; but I am
a big boy and things and have no problem with others beliefs as long as they don't try to force me to participate. I have been harrassed by
Christians on almost a daily basis but as long as they accept a polite "not interested" I dont have a problem with it.
I have even been asked 3-4 times in my life if I would be interested by another man. Guess what? A polite no worked there also.
Its when a tiny minorty of this country wants to impose ther way of life on everyone else that I have a problem.
So if you were in a place that the majority were gay you wouldnt have a problem with becoming Gay? I dont want the Gays trying to make me Gay and I
dont want the Christians harrassing me at home and at work either. Guess which one happens more often? BTW the only ones that wont take no for an
answer in my case have been Christians.....LOL I have had to threaten them to get them to leave me alone.
I am tired of beng called a bigot or a hater becuase I feel thier lfestyle is immoral.
I wonder how they feel being called "child molesters" and being told they will burn in hell unless they believe the same as you?
I am tired of seeing gays singled out for specal treatment and special laws. What the hell happened to all americans being created equal?
you mean like special tax breaks? Oh wait that is the church right.....LOL
I agree I think everyone should be treated equal, I dont believe in hate crimes or AA or church or corporate tax breaks or taxes at all to be
truthful, except for maybe a fraction of what we pay now for deffence and to help those truly unable to work.
But I dont think anyone has a right to tell me which adults I can sleep with or what I can eat, drink, or smoke either. I dont think the police have a
right to search my car or home because they think I MIGHT have something there just like I dont think you should attack another country because of
what they MIGHT do.
The Majority isnt always right which is why we have a Republic.
If I am murdered for the money in my wallet I am less important than a gay who is murdered becuase he is gay. How is this equality?
I dont believe in hate crimes either.
schools are being forced to teach "Gay tolerance" How about trying to teach kids not too pick on other kids for any reason?
Why are there laws on the books specfcally written to ensure gays are not discrimnated against, should the law state that it is illegal to
discriminate aganst anyone for any reason?
Does this mean you are FOR Gay Marriage?
I am sck of being told that I have to accept others lfestyle yet they do not have to accept mine.
Didnt you just say you shouldnt have to accept theirs? Both sides need to accept each others. Maybe THEY are sick of being told by YOU that they have
to accept YOUR lifestyle but THEY will burn in hell for theirs
As things stand today, gays have every single rght straights have,
They cant get married. I think they should be allowed BUT that if your church doesnt believe in Gay marrige it shouldnt have to preform them. Shouldnt
that settle the issue? That leaves both sides free to do as they wish that IS what you want, right?
but it isn't enough. It isn't enough becuase most of the more vocal "gay rights activists" dont want equality at all. They want beneficial
They want to be more than equal.
That is what I have a problem with.
Any law that gives ANYONE preferance I am against.
Is that good enough?
