Gays really need to stop the vicious attacks on heterosexuals that dont agree with same sex marriage...it isnt doing you any good...this chikafil thing has gotten alot of peoples attention...at the Vfw yesterday they were talking about it...guys that were indiffernt to it said they are getting really pissed at constant ramming down your throat by gays...if your not careful your going to turn whatever momentum youve gained against you by being overbearing and obnoxious...now i know gays HATE to hear any criticism of anything they do or want...but hey im already the Villianous poster boy of the gay movement.
Personally I think the slurs "bigot" and "homophobe" are used by a few to slander those they disagree with. If a man or woman believes in traditional marriage, that it ought not be disturbed or manipulated, then I don't see how that person is somehow bad, or worse, evil. Personally I'm not sure where I stand anymore on this issue. While it's true that America isn't a nation that is run by the Church, there are also traditions like marriage that, if truly sacred, shouldn't be distorted. If marriage is between one man and one woman, then it should be that way, imo. A wise man once suggested to me that if you believe in something, you shouldn't cave in and change your mind for the sake of what's "popular," as if "popularity" really means much.
Now, I wouldn't mind honestly discussing this issue meaningfully, from personal experience and opinion. I don't think calling people names will ever be a positive in debate, so it'd probably be wise to refrain from doing so.

Is it possible that maybe most of the people who make "viscous attacks" against same sex marriage oppoenents are not actually gay?
Maybe most gay people don't make such "vicious attacks". Maybe only a small minority of them do. Maybe you are judging an entire group of people based on the actions of just a few.
Just a few "maybes" for you to consider when you make posts like the one above.

I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
ANother post where you make your self look silly.
MANY posters here including myself voted no because a person simply saying they favor traditional marriage doenst make a person a bigot but they clearly support equal rights. LOL Only the most uneducated posters would think this poll means the people that voted no are all in favor of discrimination and against equal rights.
im in favor of equal gay rights but that doesnt mean if a person says they favor traditional marriage they are a bigot. They issues are separate no matter how you try, and fail, to connect them.
