Baloney.

It is about forcing people to accept homosexuality as normal, otherwise the homosexuals wouldn't be so obsessed with organizations that do not want anything to do with them, such as the BSA and churches.

If it was truly about equal rights, they'd recognize the fact there is such a thing as right of association, and wouldn't do whatever they can to force these kinds of organizations to allow them in. Not to mention that a private organization has every right to determine ho is and who aren't members in it.

If it was not about forcing people to accept homosexuality as normal, they'd form their own organizations and compete with the others.

Otherwise, I call shenanigans.

Just stating a truth.

You don't want to hear the truth, you just want to turn the argument around so you can win.

Just like a typical liberal, tell anybody who doesn't agree with you to stfu and if they don't call them a hater and use any dirty trick in the book.

You know what I meant. You are trying to cover up some bigotry that's shining through. You are trying to hold back an entire group of millions of people for no reason. You are even saying that you should be able to criticize all black people as a race too.

It is normal. People need to just get over it and live with it. There have been homosexuals since the beginning of man. There are probably hundreds of millions of them in the world now. It's normal. They aren't trying to do anything, but get the same rights as everyone else.

Quite a retort, but no, you are wrong.
It's you, you just can't see it. If you weren't prejudiced you wouldn't care what anyone else does and you wouldn't have weird beliefs concerning homosexuality.

Homosexuals are normal and a part of society. FACT

As far as the BSA - - - there are many within the Boy Scouts who want to accept gays.

Remember it was a secret group of 11 that made the decision.

Why would a gay person force an anti-gay church to accept them - - - when there are many many churches that already do.

You are just making drama - where there shouldn't be any.

You're the one who can't see your own bigotry.

No liberals can.

That's the thing about racists and deviants is they always think they aren't and can never see their own bigotry and deviant behavior and always think they're right.

Homosexuals are a part of society. That is a fact.

It is not a fact that homosexuals are normal. That is a belief, and a political one.

Just remember, anybody who opposes homosexuals in any way shape or form are called hateful.



Of course and they are correct. Anyone who opposes another simply because of their sexual orientation (something not chosen) is hateful. It is no different than opposing someone who is black, white, male, female, short or tall. None of those are chosen attributes. It is the definition of bigotry.

Now hating others on the basis of their choices may be fair game. I detest windbag, fascist, faux Christians. I am not a bigot though because those people choose their ideology making them fair game.

Modern Christianity is one of the primary causes for all that ails our country today. Not since the time of Hitler has a powerful country seen the rise of such mass cult of hate come to dominate its society at every level.

Such a rational mind for an honest open debate.

Gays are born just as God made them.

You're the one being irrational. Not to mention you keep on twisting everything I say.

Annee,
Arguing with cultists is a losing game. You cannot use reason, logic, science or even common sense to debate them. They are too far gone. All that can be done is to beat them. Tax ALL churches them delve into political matters or whose "pastors" preach denial of basic rights to others. Don't patronize the businesses that support them or that they operate unless you can validate they are authentic Christians not this virulent, diseased strain of re-cloaked KKK. That'd be a good start.

Oh, yea, you do live in such a society because you've run those people with some sense of right and wrong into the ground...


The problem is not their beliefs, but how they use their public image to broadcast them. A split is very appropriate in this case. If you eat at Chick-Fil-A you end up supporting his cause.

I am not a cultist nor am I a Christian.

Stop insulting because I disagree with you guys.

See, any disagreement on any subject regarding homosexuality and you get insulted all to hell and back, regardless of anything else you say.

It doesn't matter if you say you don't support discrimination, if you criticize homosexuals on other things you're a hater.

Screw you people.

This is why I can't stand liberals.

You can not have an open and honest debate with them because all they'll do is insult you no matter what you say and do.

And all this insulting does not change heart and win minds.

Jon Stewart did a bit on this, called "GayWatch" last night on the Daily Show. www.thedailyshow.com...

It's pretty funny if you can watch it.

Here's the quote that Jon Stewart lampooned.



Then he goes on to cite the Bible on it's definition of marriage


If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her.

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

1 Samuel 18:27 David and his men went out and killed two hundred Philistines. He brought their foreskins and presented the full number to the king so that he might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage.


Yeah, the Bible defines marriage, alright! ...........

I must, respectfully, disagree with you. There is a movement to make anti-social behaviors considered innate qualities. Such that, child molesters are now stating that this is something they cannot help - they are born with that desire. Should we ever consider child molestation to be normal and good...even if that person could not help it? Hypothetically, what if because of exosure to chemicals or hormones, this behavior became even more commonplace to the point where 25% of men desired children? Should we allow this? We don't have to hate them, but we don't have to approve of the behavior either. A person can control his/her desires otherwise you would see bored housewives rolling around in the oranges with the produce boy each time you visit the grocery store. We might have certain sexual orientations due to genetics, chemical or hormone exposure, or choice. But, we can all control our sexual behavior. This is a different thing than being born tall or black. It's really more akin to being fat or skinny. Many believe we are born/have the genetic propensity towards a certain weight and physical appearance. Others claim it's all the choice of what we put in our mouths. Mostly, I think with both weight and sexual orientation, there is a little of both involved. The point is, you can and should stand up for what you believe in or society will go to Hell in a Handbag. Such disagreement doesn't imply hatefulness.

Just found that - - don't know how to embed video


Jon Stewart: Boy Scouts And Chick-fil-A Are ‘Holdouts’ Against Equality | Last night, Jon Stewart dedicated an entire segment of The Daily Show to two groups who have been attacking the LGBT community over the past week: the Boy Scouts of America and Chick-fil-A. Stewart said, “I don’t want to minimize the concerns of the Boy Scouts, but you’re already the gayest organization in America.” As for Chick-fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy, Stewart told him, “You’re being such an asshole, not even Boston will tolerate you.” Kudos to Stewart for highlighting Cathy’s worst remarks, as those on the right continue to ignore them.

I edited my post to describe the show a little more. It's pertinent to this discussion, I think.

Adult consent. No matter what - - rule is ADULT CONSENT.

Homosexuals are consenting adults - - without any victim.

A child can not consent.

And I agree - - - a child molesters brain may be wired that way. But - the act produces a non-consenting victim.
