I feel more threatened by Christians than I do homosexuals.

With ALL that is going on in the world, THIS is on the FRONT page of ATS?
Who cares about THIS topic when RADIATION is leaking out of JAPAN, and Lybia could start a massive war?
There are SO many more topics that deserve our attention instead of silly threads like this. Homosexual or Straight... I don't care, people are DYING.

ah yes another gay bashing post. can you just be quite about your sexuality or your religious beliefs . who are you to say what is right and wrong in the world. you can't even prove that your god is real if he was real wouldn't he smite the gays in the first place maybe god is gay
No, not a gay bashing post. I'm simply tired of hearing about gay rights on a daily basis for a very real reason. A sexual preference does not automatically entitle you to any rights. You are entitled civil rights for being a human being, you are entitled rights if you live in America under the Constitution. What you are not entitled is any further rights based on your own sexual preference, I am sorry, your just not.
Don't mistake this thread for gay bashing, it is not, I have absolutely no problem with anyone being gay, being with the partner of there choice in public or doing anything that a man and a women would be deemed "ok" to do.
And yes, sloppy guys and girls making out at the bar draw the...... Hey, get a freekin room comments too so it's not just same sex, that kind of behavior just is largely not acceptable anyway.
This thread is about realizing that you by being gay which is only a sexual preference are not guaranteed any further rights than that of your civil rights. Marriage as I have said is a religious union based on Christian faith which does not allow for same sex unions. The state only recognizes that faith and ritual and while they have included it in tax law they have no authority to alter that religious union.

Marriage affects hospital visits, employment benefits, military benefits, and as long as the federal government and states can decide which marriages are worth recognizing and which are not there is an inequality
Yes, that is the problem. Yet I've never heard a single gay person complain about that. All they want to seem to do is latch into the system and support it...

So you just have zero respect for other people's feelings then? You don't care if you make other people, including maybe kids uncomfortable?
that's not fair. think of all the wars fought by gays. think of all the books and music they've burned or censored because it went against their beliefs. think of all the people hung from crosses (stylish ones) for not believing in homosexuality. think of all the terrorist acts committed by the gay community.
Prior to being chancellor of Germany, Adolph Hitler was a street cleaner and a gay prostitute.

I see, well then I guess I will just have to agree to disagree then. Just don't be surprised if people use their freedom of speech to tell you to get a frikken room.
