    Re: Opinions on Homosexuality

    Here are my views in a nutshell. Marriage needs to be between the couple and the body performing, if a church wants to perform the ceremony then it's legal IMO and for Justice of the Peace marriages then it's legal for SSM period, there can be no discrimination. Homosexuals have all the rights afforded to humans under the U.S.C. including the right to be secure in their persons, treated as equal, speech, etc. There needs to be no other discussion as far as I'm concerned.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What is needed is to reinforce the importance of the Constitution. To enforce the idea that we are all equal regardless of anything. By singling out sections of society as needing special protection we undermine the idea of equality. Equal rights should be a broad application of the law, not specialized on the attributes of the citizens. We are all equal period.

    Incase you are biased as to what you believe that I am saying, I will make it clear: All Americans require the same rights. Be it homosexuals, ex-cons or anyone we all should be under the same rights and same laws.

    a related question-why do so many gay men talk the way they do. I have the oscar red carpet show on and one of the interviewers is some guy named TIm Gunn. I didn't even need to google his name to know after hearing 2 seconds of him talking to know he's a flamer

    I dont think anyone really knows. My guess is its because gay mens brains are similar to women in certain areas but again that is just my guess. But I would like to point out that not all gay men have the stereotypical gay lisp.

    Hate crime laws cover sexuality, sex, race ect...not just homosexuality, women, minorities ect. So a heterosexual white man is covered under hate crime laws.

    A flamer? Really? Sterotype much? Tim Gunn just admited not long ago he has not had sex in almost 30 years. Maybe you should think before you speak out in reguards to someones voice inflections
