    Oh, good gawd, get over yourself. The depth you perceived in your post just isn't there.

    Something doesn't have to be deep for you to misunderstand it. What I said was pretty simple. That you misunderstood it says more about your intelligence then it does about the depth of the statement.

    You said that gays on average were more educated and had better social skills. Did you not? That means you think that their sexual behavior and preferences translates into more intellectually and socially capable people. Right? That's so absurd, it's hard to believe I'm even bothering with this.

    The rest of it was the tired, age-old argument of "compensating" for something because I'm opposed to your point in some way. That's been used for umpteen thousand arguments over time. It's right up there with nanny-nanny-boo-boo and I'm-rubber-and-you're-glue. It reeks of hollowness.

    "The same people who believe that a Jewish woman named Mary conceived a child without having sex are now trying to teach us that the only way to not get pregnant is by not having sex."

    Really...and the same people who falsely accuse criticize believers of the above try to convince mankind that killing unborn babies for convenience is simply not wrong...they would feel quite comfortable with Dr Mengele.

    Oh good, you know how to read. Now let's see if you understand what you've read.... I won't hold my breath.

    That means you think that their sexual behavior and preferences translates into more intellectually and socially capable people. Right?
    Well, good thing I didn't hold it. What I said doesn't mean that sexuality translates into social status. They are correlated. Do you know what that means? I'll give you a clue: Correlation =/= Causation. I said that they are generally far more educated, well paid etc than straight men which may be the reason as to why there is so much envy and falsehood being spread about them. Not that they are more educated, well paid etc because they're gay. See why reading comprehension is important?

    This is supported if one considers that the overwhelming majority of those opposed to homosexuality tend to be found in lower education social groups, less money etc. Protestant blacks, Social conservatives, evangelicals etc. You don't find well off conservatives rattling their sabers against gay marriage unless they're trying to sell a book.

    That's so absurd, it's hard to believe I'm even bothering with this.
    The only absurd thing here is that you failed to comprehend such a simple statement. No child left behind truly was a failure.

    The rest of it was the tired, age-old argument of "compensating" for something because I'm opposed to your point in some way.
    Compensating? No. I'm arguing homophobes are seeking to bring attention for their failed lives. Not compensating for it. Compensating would mean you're actually replacing it with something of remote equivalency. However, seeking attention is definitely not equivalent to living a failed life.

    That's been used for umpteen thousand arguments over time. It's right up there with nanny-nanny-boo-boo and I'm-rubber-and-you're-glue. It reeks of hollowness.
    Spare me the big words buddy. You failed to comprehend a simple statement. It's too late to pretend you do now.

    No I'm making a statement about you. I would have thought you would have 'comprehended' that.

    Lying about your alcohol abuse is just as bad as lying about your sexuality, IMO.

    So you're arguing with my signature? Quit trying to derail this thread. Make another thread to complain about my signature.
