Can you be specific? I'm sure that some homosexuals have had crimes committed against them for what they believe. But what group hasn't? And can you be specific about who these homophobic Christians are that people keep alluding to? Other than the 70 members of the Westboro Baptist church?
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
I was slightly surprised by her position early in this thread (because of what I've seen) but not really surprised at all when she reversed position. That is the mature reasonable logical person I've seen her to be.
Unlike people like Dan Savage and several posters in this thread (including some who agree with me), I am willing to hear the other side when she presents it.
Always fun to watch a bitter, angry, hate filled troll put his hatred and intolerance on full display.
Perhaps one might consider those kids that are contemplating and/or attempting suicide do so more because they havent learned the basic reality that their happiness does not depend on others (including their families) acceptance of them but rather it depends on their OWN acceptance of themselves. There is a reason why so many young people end up in San Francisco seeking 'love and acceptance' and end up attempting and committing suicide.
And it MAY be fairly pointed out that a very large number of religious minded folks are very loving, caring, and tolerant of homosexuals and many even support gay marriage. Not ALL professed Christians do...I get that...but Im sure if becomes politically expedient, the president might change that position as well.
