The real reason gays are to be allowed in military service under the dont ask dont tell policy is this... We want all gays to join so we can practice friendly fire exercises on them,since we didnt ask they didnt tell does not mean we didnt know, Doin it this way so less questions to answer later... So by all means go join up today, and when the papers of your complaint cross my desk, Ill shuffle off right where you need to be and cross your name off the list myself... We will have this Country back one way or another... As for marriage do that too, I just love documents...
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most of the uniformed people Here are old white men...that are so afraid of their own shadow and xneophibic that it is very sad and I feel extremely sad for them.

I have read all your posts in this thread and you have not contributed anything valuable. Your posts are full of malice, insults, name calling and assumptions about other posters. That is really sad, I am sorry that you can't move on from your anger regarding this particular issue.
take care all

Might be a higher percentage rate; but logically there are more straight people with the diesease, simply because there are more of us.
Differences in sexual behaviours do not fully explain why the US HIV epidemic affects gay men so much more than straight men and women, claims research in the journal Sexually Transmitted Infections.
In 2005, over half of new HIV infections diagnosed in the US were among gay men, and up to one in five gay men living in cities is thought to be HIV positive. Yet two large population surveys showed that most gay men had similar numbers of unprotected sexual partners per year as straight men and women.
An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument.

The 'Gay Marriage' issue has gone from a simple desire to be treated equally to one of demanding that churches be forced to recognize and accept gay marriages (some even demand they be required to perform such)

Churches do not make laws, but churches are bound by laws. Should a minister openly refuse to preform a racially mixed marriage, they are subject to civil action for such. While I would not agree with such a decision (and would not support nor attend such a church), I also do not agree with using the force of law to attempt to control individual opinion.
Your argument is therefore unconvincing.
White US judge who refused to issue marriage licences for mixed-race couples resigns
The couple Mr Bardwell refused to issue a licence for - Beth Humphrey, 30, and Terence McKay, 32 - have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against him, US media reported. Ms Humphrey said that when she phoned Mr Bardwell on 6 October to discuss getting the licence, his wife told her about his stance on mixed-race marriage. She said she had not expected such comments "in this day and age". Mr Bardwell, who has worked as a justice of the peace for 34 years, said that in his experience most interracial marriages did not last very long. He estimated that he had refused applications to four couples in the past two-and-a-half years.
