I find gay people to be immoral and disgusting. There, I said it. That's my opinion and right to think that way. Now attack me for voicing my opinion. I won't change my opinion so people on here will like me and agree.

I never always felt this way until I saw a few gay parades. My opinion is, gay parades are not about equal rights but more about "I'm here, I'm gay and i'm shoving it in your face so that you'll change your mind."


I find you to be a simple minded bigot. There, I said it. That's my opinion and right to think that way. Now attack me for voicing my opinion. I won't change my opinion so people on here will like me and agree.

I never always felt this way until I read your post. My opinion is, your comments are not about gay people but more about "I'm a close minded homophobe who is threatened by gay people."


Oh right, anyone who is against gay marriage is a homophobe. Do you realize how rare that phobia actually is?


Definition of homophobia:


Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Definitions refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, irrational fear, and hatred.

Well, this is your lucky day, then. This isn't an issue about you being able to voice your opinion. It's about same-sex partners being able to be recognized as married in the eyes of the law. This is about the federal government sticking it's big, ugly butt where it doesn't belong by defining what "marriage" means. No one has taken away your right to express your opinion but the government's legal definition of marriage has accomplished absolutely nothing but to oppress a group of people.

Let's hope they don't come after religion one day and try to make Christianity illegal. (not that that's ever gonna happen in MY lifetime lol) While it would make me smile a little, I would never, ever endorse it or vote for any law that would oppress any group of people for their lifestyle or belief or color of skin or what kind of car they drive or the music they listen to.

No.

I never said fear. The definitions aren't about JUST fear.

Maybe you need glasses?

Here's the words they use: aversion, antipathy, hatred, dislike, prejudice

here's the words you use, for all gay people: disgusting, immoral...

You're a homophobe. You may not be scared... but you have an aversion, a dislike an antipathy, a prejudice.

Textbook homophobia.

I guess I will never understand why anyone's sexual orientation is anyone else's business. I do not want to know what goes on behind the doors of another home. That is a private concern. What is so hard to understand about that?

In a rational world, republicans would boycott romney if they actually had principles, not that gays are bad but it's their supposed biblical homophobia principles at stake here, but instead their homophobia takes a backseat to islamaphobia.

I guess you missed the part were I said I've been to a gay parade before. Would a homophobe do that? Do you not think logically? I said I changed my mind after witnessing what gay parades are really about.

Its scary how people put so much faith in a person to "do the right thing", yet before he has even taken office he has switched views on a range of subjects to get into the White House.

Do people voting for Mitt Romney, or Obama for that matter, believe once they become PotUS they will stand by their decisions made while campaigning?

I believe its just a big show, keeping people divided, so other people can take advantage of the world through the monetary system.

I could be wrong, but I believe there is more than enough proof. Call me crazy, but these are some crazy times we are living in where people are thrown under the bus so someone else can make a buck. Which at the end of the day is pretty useless in the grand scheme of things.

I have an idea. Shut your mouth? If you dropped out of high school and the job hires you without asking for your education history, would you run and tell your boss that you dropped out? No because it's stupidity. People are going to HATE! It is human nature. If you don't want to deal with it then shut your mouth. It is not your right nor your duty as a gay American to change our minds. If people do not like gay people they have a right to not like gay people. Some people choose to be racist and guess what? It is legal to be racist in America.

Freedom of speech people. You do not deserve privilege for being white, black, gay, straight, male or female. You have a right to equality. Nothing more. Nothing less. It is never your right to limit my rights. It's that simple.


Why is it when you run your mouth it's freedom of speech but gays are supposed to keep their mouths shut and not use their freedom of speech. So how about you keeping your trap shut seeing how you think people shouldn't have equal rights. Your nothing but a hateful hypocrite.

For Cryin' out loud! Who gives a Crap if SomeOne wants to be Gay. We all do NOT need to keep hearing about it, IMO. I like My Beer a certain way, I'm not gonna keep yellin' about it though. I may or may not like Pot, I don't think I need to keep voicing my opinion about it.
Do all Gays actually think we care about their preference? Do they keep cryin' just to make themselves feel better about their choice?
So 'They' came out of the closet. Who Really Gives a Schitt?!? Them, that's who. Why do they think we actually care?
I am White and becoming a minority here in the U.S. Should I start whining about it and Demand I get some Rights beacuse of it?! Man, I don't know.
Just Venting I guess......
