    Vance, I don't have a point. I have a sister who is gay, I recounted our interaction.

    I have a daughter, she is straight. At one time she was bi-curious. Life is life. She is able-bodied, and sound of mind and body. When I consider all that could befall her, finding out that she is gay would just be a "Okay, honey; love you!" moment.

    Would it shock you to know that my response to a gay child would be the same?

    really? you might not be hostile and bigoted, but i would bet you a million bucks you'll find more hostile homophobes in the GOP than the other side. you're not naive.......and i feel sorry for mehlman, he chose a party in which he couldn't live freely until he actually quit his job.

    The same as mine, or the same as to your sister?

    If I were your sister, you'd be out of my life forever. Especially with the indignant way you treat people here.

    And if I were your child, my response would be the same.

    The same as yours to my child. I would love them unconditionally...just as I do now with all of my children. And the same as i do with my sister in law. I love her...I support her relationship. I dont agree with it but then, its not my choice nor life. And for what its worth, we get along great.

    Thats the beauty of that whole 'tolerance' thing.

    Mehlman's said that he only recently came to this realization, so I don't think that's the issue.
    that i don't believe, not for a minute.

    This is me laughing at you.

    This is precisely why I dont go to the gay marriage threads. I can offer my love and respect without endorsing behavior i dont agree with...and invariably intolerant assholes jump in with "AAAAUUUUGGGHHH YOU ARE A BIGOT!!! YOU ARE A RACIST". So I just dont bother.

    So now instead of offering my first response...the "Im sorry you feel that way" comment, then because of your response may may feel free to assume my second response...

    I've been waiting for one answer to one question and now that I know it's in your real life: how do you tell them that you value their relationship less than someone else's?
