    Nope. I was just pointing out to you that straight people showboat too. Get the hell over it. Or do not go there during those times.

    BTW, I know you seem to hate everyone, every group that does not meet your standards and every single little thing does not pass your muster.. But.. You need to really get the hell over it for your own health and mind. Using hate terms does not help your argument.

    Re: Opinions on Homosexuality

    Homosexuals qualifies as humans. Therefore, they should have the same rights, and duties as everybody else.

    I can't understand why so many people are so opposed to granting fellow humans such basic rights that they themselves enjoy and would be outraged if taken away from them

    Or how about they stop acting like ****ing freaks in the middle of the street, in the middle of the day, when decent people and their children can see them? Remember when people used to care about that?

    Re: Opinions on Homosexuality

    My religion tells me that living out homosexual feelings is wrong, and marriage can be between a man and a woman only. It's one of the few teachings of my religion I don't understand.

    That said, I believe religion is a private matter. I respect this religious rule and feel obliged to respect it and not engage in homosexual acts myself (which is pretty easy for me, as I don't have the desire to do that anyway). But it's not up to me to tell others, including people who are not part of my religious community, how to live.

    Just like I insist on the freedom to live my life as I please, including my religious practize, I believe others who don't share my belief have the same right to live as they please, as long as they don't harm others.

    I wish every state would allow SSM and I want DOMA repealed, but I don't believe that SSM is a Constitutional right.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    If straight marriage is, then SSM is.

    Re: Opinions on Homosexuality

    This dead horse has been cremated and made into fabulous nail polish. My thoughts? I think it's a sin. Before you rage, the Bible states to hate the sin and not the sinner. I have a gay male cousin and a bisexual female cousin; oddly, they don't storm and rage against me for my opinion. As for gay marriage I've been against it for quite a while, but now I no longer oppose it 'cause we're not a theocracy. What really pisses me off is when people call me a hateful bigot in that nasally socially-liberal voice simply for thinking it's a sin. Those are the people that need a lesson in logic. According to Traditional Christianity, if it's as sinful as the Bible says, we're gonna be screwed in the afterlife; all this modern social views aren't a part of the "straight and narrow path" to heaven, IMO. Oh yeah, and I like Elton John's older music, lol.

    I've always viewed marriage as a legal contract, not a religious event. When you get to divorce court you know that it is about legalities. Ergo, if gays want to marry, fine, it's just a legal contract. Who gives a rat's ass. If they want to marry their dog, sheep,or whatever, that's a somewhat different matter. After all, who would represent the animal in court?

    Born-homosexuality is a naturally reoccurring birth defect like any other. Chosen-homosexuality is very often a sex-related stress disorder.

    That's how I interpret the data and digest the conversations we have here.

    They do.

    Today, gays enjoy full and complete access to free association. I have no problem with that.

    I don't necessarily, but would encourage every couple of every kind to work on deeper issues of faith, finance and living. Love is not enough.

    That would depend on the preference. Without 'going there' I'm sure you and I would agree that certain preferences are off the table regardless.

    My family didn't approve of my wife, and her family of me, so gays aren't alone here. You know all these uber-religious folks who go around saying gays are going to hell for being gay? Those same people tell me, personally, that I'm also going to hell for supporting gays in the military, gay adoption, and for just not worshiping exactly like they do in their church. So I don't think my views would change very much.

    Heteros can't get married to the same-sex, so gay marriage shouldn't even be on the 'equality' table. Also, the 50% divorce rate isn't something you want to join.

    You are assuming people believe in the bible and sin, which is what your religion tells you, but yet you get upset that

    . By insinuating that christianity (hah hah spell check thinks I'm wrong because I didn't capitalize christianity) is THE way to think you are condemning people who do not believe what they do-- same thing that is done to you.

    Oh yeah-- I like Elton John too.
