    Nature or nurture or both, there is simply no evidence that one can pray away the gay. If you don't think many gays have tried to BE straight, and would have given a great deal to be straight, you don't know many gay people very well. The idea that it's a choice just is contradicted by all the evidence.

    And of course they CAN live a lie as a straight person, or celibate. Happens all the time. My brother tried it but decided it wasn't fair to him, his wife, or what would be their children to have to deceive them all, forever basically. It was also dishonest (in his view) in the most fundamental way. But I don't think that is what you meant.

    I also do not recognize any analogy that involves the plight of Black with that of the homosexuals. Imo, it's beyond comparison in this country.
    But that's not unlike saying, "Well, Jews in country X have/had it better than they did in Nazi Germany, so what's the problem?"

    I didn't suggest that we could.

    OK, different thread, but since you brought it up, how does focusing all the social conservative attention on SSM solve that problem. They're wanting the right TO marry. It's never been clear to me how the two guys down the street from me getting married threatens my 24 year marriage. The more the merrier IMO. Happiness, stability, monogamy, commitment - all good things no matter which couple decides to make that vow!

    This is just more faux outrage designed to divide...
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    So dramatic.

    Why can't two gay guys find another bakery for their wedding? Because that would waste the opportunity for prime attention whoring.

    And I eat pizza all the time without discussing my sexual orientation. I'm amazing that way.

    That's not how it works. To the left, tolerance is a 1-way street.

    Where in that response did I discuss bakeries or pizza? It's like you're responding to someone else, so I don't see the point in this exchange.

    Same reason to black guys cant find another bakery.

    If being gay were visibly obvious, you'd see this sort of discrimination a lot more.

    That doesn't make much sense, how many openly racist bakeries have you seen denying service to black people?

    White Women did not go through the exact same denial of rights as African American women did in this country. Is a white woman's struggle less than that of a black woman? Even though they did not face all the same denials of right...they still faced those related to they being women.

    Blacks have their own path to social justice and civil rights...LGBT will have theirs. What each group goes to ultimately get social justice and civil rights...does not have to be the exactly same to be valid.

    No, the left just doesn't feel that intolerance needs to be tolerated. You see, that's because the left doesn't view the world in black and white like you do.

    People on the right claim to uphold individual liberty, but they're more than happy to block the individual liberty to marry someone of the same gender. So, they're all hypocrites, right? They only want freedom to behave one way, their way.
