The gay agenda is quite real, look no further than the perversion of the 1st Amendment.
Once originally held to be the right of free speech, that no man may be silenced or punished for his words. Slowly turned into a political helping hand for industrious money grubbing news agencies, shifting the perception of what free speech is away from the individual to the corporation....
The U.S. Constitution
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
And the next phase :]
Free speech is no longer about the individuals right to say whatever they may, it's no longer about the corporation being able to disseminate truth.
It's about the right to self-expression, a protective blanket not just for gays/homosexuals but for the worst offenders... the 'flamers'.
The 1st amendment is more about protecting a 'flamers' right to dress in ONLY a thong in public during some overly sexualized and nearly pornographic parade. That select group of people, which is the real "gay agenda" would rather destroy communities and families and a centrist way of life than accept we don't accept not so much their sexual choice, but their flamboyant nature.
They are literally the most active 'minority' group when it comes to public demonstrations.
So let's just think about this for a second and sum it up.
1st amendment used to be about the individuals right to free speech. Now the 1st amendment is protection for flamboyant homosexuals, and surprise surprise if you say something hateful you can now be punished.
Total reversal of the intentions behind the 1st amendment.
And some of you think there's no agenda?
Look no one's saying every homosexual is behind the agenda, or aware of the agenda. But there is an agenda to rapidly push homosexuality at the expense of common sense and the law.

Now this Amendment covers freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. Those "industrious money grubbing news agencies" are covered under the part about freedom of the press, and I'm sure you wouldn't want the Government to start to regulate them, now would you? And since you had the freedom to post the rest of this drivel and are not in danger for posting it, then your right to free speech has not been hindered, thus your point is moot.
Now we get into that part I was talking about. The hate you have for 'flamers' is not very well hidden. But apparently you feel that 'flamers' don't deserve the same freedom of expression that you enjoy, right?
No, you are trying to stretch the 1st Amendment now to include dress codes.
Pretty far stretch there, Bucko... Now since we both live in Phoenix, I'd just LOVE for you to point out to me when exactly anyone can go out into public in JUST a thong? And if you want to talk about "overly sexualized and nearly pornographic parade"s, then let's talk about Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Fantasy Fest in Key West. Both events are repleat with women flashing their breasts for cheap plastic beads, and others wearing nothing but spray paint. Both of these examples, as well as the Gay Pride Parades that you seem to be alluding to are covered however by the right of the people peaceably to assemble. You are not forced to attend any of these events. But you point is taken here, you don't hate queers, just flamboyant queers...
And also the only 'minority' group that still lacks equal rights, but how dare we be active! But again, this is covered by the right of the people peaceably to assemble.
It's still about the right of free speech, but there are limits to that. You cannot yell "FIRE" in a crowded building, and you cannot threaten someone with bodily harm. You can say all kinds of hateful things, but you cannot make hateful threats, and there is a big difference. And that applies EQUALLY to everyone, not just you homophobes.
There are two agendas present here. The Homosexual Community has an agenda to achieve equal rights...
and the Homophobic Community has an agenda to stop that from happening. I think we can all clearly see which side you are on... Now Good Day Sir!

Odd that people feel they have to agree or disagree about homosexuality.
Unless you're in the bedroom with me, my sexuality doesn't require your opinion at all.
And people being out of control because it's "in their genes" is utter nonsense:
We'd all love to get into each others' jeans!
But most of us, straight or gay, do control ourselves.
edit on 19-12-2010 by spacegod because: to clarify that the toasters new gays don't get are free.
