I mean they are less than 1% of the population. What if the law was that Jews couldn't buy or sell with non-Jews, or have to wear identifying labels of some kind? Would you support that? Is that an acceptable approach?

    You see the hate for gay people is so strong among some conservatives that they miss the point of what is actually going on here. Yes, these laws can lead to rounding up gay people and killing them. It has happened before. I wonder how many conservatives simply turned the other way when it did.
    No hate. It's gross watching a man and woman heavy petting in public... I'm talking about the same level of decorum.

    It's much less tolerant of the lgbt community to force people into embracing the lifestyle. You get tolerance, and be happy with that, and I expect you to be tolerant of other people's beliefs.

    You're completely missing the point. You are told conservatives ''hate" gay people and you believe it. Fact is many of us don't care one way or the other. We know people who are gay, we don't necessarily hang out with them because we don't share similar interests. But we don't hate them. The youth group at our church has a much higher percentage of gay people than out general population. Apparently some people think they can church the gay out of them. It doesn't work that way. They are good kids doing good things. Today they are going to a Winterfest concert and my 12 year old son is excited that he is finally old enough to go with them.

    What we "hate" is being beat over the head with it. We get it. You are gay. Is there anything else important to you we may have in common? You know how pissed off non Christians get when they pounded over the head with ChristianChristianChristian OMG WE BELIEVE IN GOD AND SO SHOULD YOU OR YOU'RE GOING TO HEEEEELLLLLLLL. Yeah. Same thing. We know you are gay. We don't care. You want marriage to mean something different, we are not going to change our minds and neither are you. Get over it. People are different. It's not hate, it's indifference, and you are not going to change it.

    ACtually it is YOU and others against SSM that are going to have to "get over it", because gay marriage WILL be legal across the land. So "Get over it".

    YOU don't own the word marriage. It used to be marriage was between one man and one woman of THE SAME RACE. Things change, get over it.

    I get it, your gay, I'm used to it, now have some decorum and keep it in your room. Just like I don't want to see people making out and fondling themselves in public if it's a guy and a girl.

    I'm OK with their lifestyle, but don't need it rammed Down my throat at every turn.

    Where's the marches, parades, flags and stickers celebrating heterosexuality? Families and family values?
    Well the last time I checked heterosexual marriage was legal and discrimination against heterosexuals is non-existent.

    Ya, even in places where the marriage is legal, that's not good enough, they want then coerce churches into perform wedding ceremonies. That is where the demand for equality becomes intolerant of others beliefs.

    You ever been called a "breeder"?
    (Me either, but I've been present when a friend with children was called this with disdain)

    No, it's not all, and I don't care what two people who love each other do with each other... you get tolerance and I'm not a bigot for calling them out on pushing for more.

    Gay marriage has been legal here for almost a decade, where are these protests?

    Right.. because making homosexuality illegal does not politicize sex at all.

    Great, but people on this thread are in fact supporting Putin under the guise of saying it is somehow okay to stop gays from spreading propaganda, but Putin's idea of propaganda is two people holding hands or saying I love you.


    But we don't hate them. The youth group at our church has a much higher percentage of gay people than out general population. Apparently some people think they can church the gay out of them.
    To suggest that conservatives don't hate gays is fine. But there are some that clearly do. My problem is that many are comfortable with oppression of gays.

    It doesn't work that way. They are good kids doing good things. Today they are going to a Winterfest concert and my 12 year old son is excited that he is finally old enough to go with them.
    So it fun to assume that it is okay to tell people that are damaged because of who they love.

    What we "hate" is being beat over the head with it
    .

    How is that happenin?

    We get it. You are gay.
    I am not I just oppose bigotry...funny how that works you assume I am gay because I attack bigotry against gays.

    Is there anything else important to you we may have in common? You know how pissed off non Christians get when they pounded over the head with ChristianChristianChristian OMG WE BELIEVE IN GOD AND SO SHOULD YOU OR YOU'RE GOING TO HEEEEELLLLLLLL. Yeah. Same thing. We know you are gay. We don't care
    .

    Then simply say what Putin is doing is wrong....stop trying to justify it.

    You want marriage to mean something different, we are not going to change our minds and neither are you. Get over it. People are different. It's not hate, it's indifference, and you are not going to change it.
    When you decide that it is okay to deny people their rights because of who they love then if it isn't hate what is it?

    prove this statement

    That is where the demand for equality becomes intolerant of others beliefs.
    But since it isn't happening it is hard to judge.

    You ever been called a "breeder"?
    (Me either, but I've been present when a friend with children was called this with disdain)
    wow doesn't it suck when someone calls you a name you don't like.....sort of decides the kind of person you are with no evidence.

    No, it's not all, and I don't care what two people who love each other do with each other... you get tolerance and I'm not a bigot for calling them out on pushing for more.
