    I get so tired of the term "homophobic" being thrown around. Somebody's not approving with homosexuality doesn't mean the person is irrationally fearful.

    With a notable exception being teenagers, I don't know any gay people who are "oppressed." I do know a lot of gay people who are happy, well-adjusted, successful people with families and hosts of friends who adore them. Interestingly, their homosexuality isn't their raison d'etre; it's just a facet of who they are. In my world, nobody cares who's straight or gay. Are you a decent person? A good neighbor? Someone who pulls his/her weight at work?

    Im tired of the homophobe garbage thrown around...but whats more abhorrent to me is that if your against Homosexual Marriage...YOU HAVE TO BE A HOMOPHOBE and YOU HAVE TO HATE GAYS...that is just a huge pile of horse dung
    I have absolutely NOTHING against Homosexuals and I know MANY of them throughout my life...
    My issue is this forum with their cheerleading crowd that swoops down and swarms and tries to intimidate anyone that doesnt POST PRECISELY what they want to hear....and jumps on people and tries to stifle them...that is garbage and Ive fought that kind of bully crap all my life and I aint stopping now...like or LUMP IT...

Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending." –Rep. Michele Bachmann, suggesting at a presidential campaign event in Florida that the 2011 East Coast earthquake and hurricane was a message from God (Aug. 2011)

    2. "Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too" -Rep. Michele Bachmann, getting her John Waynes mixed up during an interview after launching her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, where she grew up. The beloved movie star John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, three hours away. The John Wayne that Waterloo was home to is John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer. (June 2011)

    3. "I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter." –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the HPV vaccine, Fox News interview, Sept. 12, 2011

    4. "Why should I go and do something like that? But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, recalling in a 2006 speech at a Megachurch in Minneapolis that pursuing tax law wasn't her choice, but she did so at the urging of her husband because she was certain God was speaking through him

    5. "I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or anti-America?" -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, calling for a new McCarthyism, Oct. 2008

    6. "I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president, April 28, 2009

    7. "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009

    8. "If we took away the minimum wage -- if conceivably it was gone -- we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level." -Michele Bachmann, Jan. 2005

    9. "But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. ... I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly -- men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, botching American history while speaking at an Iowan's for Tax Relief event in January 2011. The Founding Fathers did not work to end slavery, and John Quincy Adams was not one of the Founding Fathers.

    10. "Before we get started, let's all say 'Happy Birthday' to Elvis Presley today." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, while campaigning for president in South Carolina on what was actually the anniversary of Elvis's death, Aug. 16, 2011 (Elvis was born on January 8)
    "Yes I read the 9th [amendment]. It doesn't say **** about abortion." -Jamesrage

    Even it wasn't his idea to say it, Bachmann's husband's "business" is to "fix" gays.
    His mommy doesn't need fixing, just as Bachmann's husband doesn't.

    Where exactly was I something less than accurate? Need I define the word "Some" for you? One need only look at any Bachmann thread. There are "Some" righties here that defend her. My comment stands on its own merit.

    Ever since ive been on this forum there has been a level of attempted intimidation against anyone that has a differing view on anything homosexual..its brings out the same faces in a group fap against ANYONE THAT DARES TO TRY TO DEFY the homosexual cheerleading community on DPS....having your view is fine...and anyone else having a differing view has that coming too...so you can take your aggressive group jumps down the throat of any DPS member that DARES DEFY the pro homosexual marriage crowd...pffffffffft....ive had enough of it.
    So basically it's 100% okay for Empirica to say that this woman and/or her lifestyle is disgusting, abhorrent, or any other rude, aggressive thing she wants...but when we point out how disgusting that kind of ignorance and intolerance really is, that's not okay? That's basically what you're saying here. You/she/anybody can sit here and ridicule homosexuals all day, but when somebody wants to point out how incredibly immoral and wrong that mindset is then THEY'RE the ones in the wrong? How incredibly warped.

    Re: Just Plain Wrong

    I'm a huge advocate of gay rights and I'm outspoken about it. I don't have much respect for Michelle Bachman, either. However, I find this a distasteful stunt. It was filmed and shared and advocated. The child wasn't simply being taught to stand up for something, he was being taught to make a show and having himself put all over the internet.

    I will point out that I would find it just as disgusting if it was reversed, if it was done to any other political figure and no matter what the cause that was being advocated. I would never make the same choice for my son.

    In short, I advocate the message, but I'm very put off by the delivery method.
    Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!

    Empiricia called homosexuality a "sick perversion". That's homophobia, plain and simple. You told her to keep her homophobic beliefs, regardless of what others say. Now who's cheerleading?

    Empirica, you do realize homosexuality is more than just the gay sex part, right?
