    The cartoon accompanying your post could qualify as hate speech. That's the problem with criminalizing thoughts.

    Birth defects due to consanquinity for the first two.

    And I personally don't have a problem with plural marriages of any makeup, as long as they are consensual.

    What do you have against freedom to live ones life as they see fit as long as it doesn't harm you?

    Just another example of how we're all being discriminated against - "hate speech."

    I love how people believe they can define how others feel or their intent - as if hating is wrong in the first place...

    Exactly the point. Gay supporters complain of being marginalized, but doing the same to Christians is perfectly acceptable. I for one have had enough of it.

    So, you cant say birth defects are certain and even if they were birth defects CERTAINLY wouldn't be an argument against marriage considering married people a) don't have to have kids and b) many people with "birth defects" get married and have children and pass those genes onto their children. "Little people" do all the time - what are you going to do next? claim "little people" shouldn't procreate?

    The problem with being a straight white Christian male is that you are never once given the chance of introspection. You have never had someone drive past you in the middle of the night, throw garbage at you and call you a faggot. You've never had men leer or grope at you, or been refused service to a restaurant or store, have people glare at you for dressing in religious garb. I can't even make fun of straight white Christian males - no derogatory term even exists for them. If you can't understand how blessed you are for being born as such -- there's no one that can help you.

    What, doesn't fit your stereotype of Christians? How about that, not all conservatives hate gay people after all.
    I work for the Republican Party and used to be an Evangelical Christian, now turned atheist. I know the type. It's the complete inability to understand empathy.
