So we are to be tolerant of all things gay but its totally acceptable to wish an entire generation that you claim is 'holding us back from enlightenment' dead?
You have every right to be what you want.
I have every right to not buy into the gay community behavior.
I have said it once and i will say it again,The one and only place we see
homosexuality carried out openly is in the animal kingdom.
God made Adam and Eve, Not Adam and Steve.When two men engage in sex it is an abomination
Dude, no one wants to see a bunch of fairies in speedos and hairy chests groping each other in public. The world was perfectly fine when they weren't so public about their lifestyle choice.

Say what you will but, the stereotypes always seem to be true about the gays. Also, its insulting to even compare the strife and struggles of African Americans to a group who shares a sexual fetish. Not even in the same ballpark.
Here's why we should part ways in this discussion: you are in support of negative stereotypes which you say "seem to be true" about gays because of your personal and anecdotal experience, which by the way has nothing to do with majority reality. Your anecdote is irrelevant, except to you -- and you have a bias. So it is best to discount it.
However, the most important reason we should cease this discussion is because I believe you are throwing around terms like "sexual fetish" to avoid a very legitimate discussion on the genetics of homosexuality. I suspect it's because you're ill equipped to have that sort of meaningful discussion, but rather are inclined to disparage, paint with broad brushes, and throw about downright bigoted phraseology, all for the sake of getting your extremely oppressive point across. I simply don't respect that form of obstructionist communication. I find it self-serving and wholly non-insightful, and also --- boring.

I would actually disagree with the statement that no one rubs heterosexual
things in peoples faces, ever hear of mardi gras? spring break? summer?
car commercials, burger commercials, fitness, alcohol, condom, and really
any number of advertising out there uses half naked women and men in
mostly hetero situations. While you don't bat an eye at these because they
are the norm, that is rubbing hetero lifestyle in everyones face in the exact
Sexuality is all over television and advertising in the US and at least 90% of
it caters to the hetero choice, also mardi gras and spring break are times
when you can go out and see all kinds of half or wholly naked people many
in the hetero category, truth is its only fair they should get the same opportunity
to flaunt their sexuality if they so choose.

Why does it matter if a minority group decides to fly a flag for their 'cause'?
Surely as long as every group (within legality, of course) are free to fly their own flag too if they wish, it doesn't matter a jot.
It is only a flag, at the end of the day.

Government buildings, or those used for state/local/federal government should be free of any adornments supporting any group, or religion. Fly the american and state flag, leave the rest for private/independent people to do.

What freedom was violated? The guy voiced his opinion. All kinds of laws are passed that I disagree with and that I believe go against the Constitution (Obamacare, NDAA, Patriot Act, ect). If you have an issue, take it up with the guy proposing the law rather than the guy who suggested it.

Yeah hatred,intolerance, and bigotry are not traits unique to straight people.

Gentlemen, (unless of course, you're female, or a scoundrel)
Welcome back to TRGreer! If anyone is ever in need of a Sectretary of Individualized Personhood, let me recommend him (or SuicideBankers). What a guy.
Anyway, to you both. I'm not very good at sarcasm and I don't use it often. Even then I end up having to apologize for it. This time it was not sarcasm.
All those activities happen and are protected by the First Amendment? I'm not so sure. I picked Chicago at random and looked at their Park Code. Unless you get official government approval ahead of time, the following are prohibited:
Groups of more than 50 people
The distribution of leaflets or any documents indoors, in a garden, or in any special facility
Any exhibit, dramatic event television broadcast
A sporting event
Sales or offer to sell anything
Anything that uses auxilliary outside power
The erection of a tent, platform, canopy or other structure
Any commercial matter
I don't see any First Amendment protection for the events I mentioned.
Certainly the burning of the cross, or any of the events I mentioned were objectionable to some people, as is the flying of the Rainbow flag to some people. I think the danger comes in because some groups are less likely to hold in their disgust, and more likely to react violently.
But, as we have seen, government already prohibits many activities without regard to First Amendment issues. It just seems to me, at first glance, that adding "Flying a non-governmental flag" could be added to the list without causing significant problems.
