    The adult thing to do would have been not to invite this guy to speak at your school to begin with.
    There were no "two wrongs" because one group made the invitation, another just exercised their rights and exercising one's rights is NEVER wrong.

    And that's exactly what I'm doing as well by mocking the attitude you're exhibiting in regards retelling what you did.

    You and everyone else is well within your right to have done the protest.

    In the exact same fashion, I'm well within my right to laugh at the attitude and implication that you made any actual impact or did anything of note other than basically a bunch of college kids having a circle jerk. You go on about causing an "exodus" where as in reality it seems like you got a bunch of people to show up for something that they wouldn't have shown up for anyways, and then got a bunch of people to leave something they wouldn't have shown up to anyways. And then want to act like it was some big deal.

    You didn't cause an "exodus". You got a bunch of people to walk one direction and then walk another, which basically resulted in a little bit of a kurfuffle before the event went on in the exact same fashion it would've likely gone on had you not done it.

    It'd be one thing if the little walk out actually was a few people and inspired a bunch of people who otherwise would've stayed to get up and walk out as well. But that doens't seem to be what happened. A bunch of douchy college kids went to something thinking they could cause a scene, caused a scene, and then clapped themselves on the back for making a scene.

    Wooo! Social justice...or something

    I'm sure the minds of those people who stayed were changed. I'm sure there were people who previously thought "Yo, hatin gays be cool" but suddenly realized that "Hey, a bunch of people walked out of something they never would've attended anyways. I now understand...hating gays is bad!"

    You pulled off a college stunt and got some attention for it. Congratulations, you're campus is the whiny and less entertaining version of the Oregon Duck singing Gangnam Style. I have no issue with college kids acting like college kids and pulling a college stunt. But forgive me if I'm not going to fawn over it or buy into this laughable notion that it was some "powerful" social protest or some brave action or some significant political message.
    A naive and myopic perspective on par with high school "dissing" but it is your right to do so.

    But you expect others to accept bigotry as such? Hypocrisy much?

    Truth be told, I have no problem with the guy coming to speak his mind. I am not sitting here telling everyone that the government should shut him down - in fact I believe the opposite. But if you are going to use your first amendment rights, you have to be willing to accept that others are going to use theirs, and that's exactly what we did. There is a rising tide of public opinion morally opposing the type of speech that LaBarbera is putting forward, in the same manner that public opinion once washed out the voice of segregationists and anti-miscegenation supporters. This is purely an outgrowth of that fact.
    Why thats just horse****, son. If there were such a widespread voice, they would have ignored it and gone on with their oh so happy lives because people like that would have been irrelevant. Instead...he represented a threat to your fragile happiness because he dares to think your lifestyle is wrong and abnormal and as a result, you rallied 150 or so shrill like minded people to stage your tantrum.

    Ironic that YOU posted a comment about Fred Phelps...while crowing that you acted no different than the Westboro crowd. Well played.

    You just can't help yourself in your desire to limit others...

    But it is not about the punch. It is all about showing the truth and I can see that that can hurt more than a punch.

    What truth is that, that a bunch of 13th grade mouth breathers can do a "walk out"? Yet demand tolerance from others. Yea, some real truth showing there.

    Have you ever considered expanding your little tantrums into something that resembles a rational thought?
