    Don't be absurd. I'm not going to write a thesis justifying homosexuality because some idiot believes gays are deviants.

    Yes, that's exactly what you're doing. The OP has shown himself to be a non-stop liberal hyper partisan....so whether this Lt. Governor was black, white, hispanic, or anything else he'd be posting it to denigrate the person because he's A REPUBLICAN not because he's black. What you're doing is NO DIFFERENT than the legions of people who go "Your Racist, you're just saying that because he's black!" whenever people make any comment about Barack Obama.

    By the way, it doesn't seem he is suggesting all christians agree with him...the CANDIDATE suggested that because he stated that "every church going person" holds the same principles as him. Deuce was asking if you were one, if you agreed with his comments, and suggested that based on your initial post....utterly defending him and pulling hte race card...one can only assume that you do.

    I would agree it's not reprehensible simply to be against abortoin or gay marriage.

    However...claiming homosexuals are mentally "sick people" and suggesting they have a psychological disorder when psychologists categorically disagree IS rather reprehensible in my mind.

    Suggesting that anytime a homosexual talks about "love" they're actually simply talking about gay sex...essentially suggesting that homosexuals are physically incapable of experience the feeling of "love" and are purely lust driven...is a pretty reprehensible statement in my mind.

    Suggesting a major political party in this serving up an agenda "worthy of the antichrist" is a pretty reprehensible comment.

    Yes, I am doing the same thing he is doing.

    Except that I'm doing different things.

When Bill Cosby came out and said that blacks need to stop playing the victims and start taking responsibility for themselves and get off of welfare the black community ostracized him. The same thing happens to ex-homosexuals when they make public statements against homosexuals. Many other homosexuals ostracized them too.

    The point isn't so much the "race" card. Its more of a "group" card.
    If people come out and say "Bill Cosby is a Uncle Tom" it's not "pulling a race card" to respond going "Wow, a black guy doesn't think the way they're stereotypically expected to think so immedietely he should be insulted".

    However, if people come out and say "Bill Cosbys's views on this are stupid" to respond going "Wow, a black guy doesn't think the way they're stereotypically expected to think so immedietely he should be insulted" IS pulling a race card.

    Just like it's pulling the race card if someone goes "I dislike Obama's economic policy" and a preson responds "You just dislike him cause he's black". And it wouldn't be a race card if someone goes "I can't stand Obama thinking he's the HNIC" (look up the acronym) and a person responds "You just dislike him cause he's black".

    The OP said NOTHING about his race, gave NO indicatoin what so ever that the problems with him came about due to his race, and gave every indication that his issues were entirely ideological in nature.....and Fisher's immediete response was the equivilent of "RACIST". That's picture perfect "race card".

    Are there people who dislike Blacks who don't toe the stereotypical line? Absolutely. Just like there are real racists out there. But labeling someone as such without ANYTHING to substantiate it is playing the race card.

    I am a white guy too (and an anti-federalist who is quite liberal on many issues but sometimes the enemy of my enemy is my friend)

    See your own Post #36: "No, but she's a woman, and therefore immune to criticism..."
