    Personally I think the overly sensitive and pushy homosexuals should cease their behavior, because they only harm their cause when people have had enough and start mocking them. Not all homosexuals are like this, but there are a very noisy and obnoxious part of the group that are. I dislike it when certain homosexuals get all offended are insufferable because you don't accept their point of view. Whatever happened to acknowledge that there exist different views? I cannot believe this disgusting behavior all as a result of this Dan person answering a question he was asked during an interview. Stop the drama; it helps no one.

    They can do what they want...but what they cant do is expect the rest of us to sit back and take their ****...got it and your trying to equate gay marriage to civil rights falls on my deaf ears..

    So, is anybody going to bother correcting the spelling error in the title?

    The grammar nazi inside me is going insane.

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.
    traditional marriage is a made up term and totally subjective, in reality it holds no real meaning.

    Im fine with people thinkin, beliving teaching etc what htey THINK marriage is but they dont get to stop equal rights.

    In reality Equal rights will NEVER distort, disturb or manipulate marriage or impact how sacred one finds it nor will it impact the "tradition" of it in any way.

    If "I" have a marriage between "ME" and may "WIFE" what "others" do with "their" marriage has ZERO impact on mine.

    so no one is a bigot for simply feeling a certain way on this issue but once you go out and fight against equal rights then yes you are a bigot.

    Straights have been mostly silent about it for along time...now they are starting to talk about it...because gays have gotten absolutely out of control with their demanding INSULTING sarcastic vicious non stop attacks and Chikafil has brought alot of it out of them.
    One woman said yesterday Im not for gay marriage but I didnt rant and rave about jc penny and target...but how dare any other business have an opposing point of view then all hell breaks loose...she said thats just too much

    Do you like it when anyone acts in an overly sensitive, pushy, noisy, and obnoxious manner? Or is just when a few homosexuals do it that you get irritated? I know a handful of religious nuts who could be considered overly sensitive, pushy, noisy, and obnoxious.

    I'm not getting why the whole gay movement has to be judged by a few bad apples. You don't like it when people do it with Christians so why are you and lpast doing it with gays?

    I would agree with this with the caveat that not all gays have been vicious, unreasonable, insulting, etc.

    That woman's point is interesting.

    I'm not interested in discussing this issue with you if you're going to twist my words, try to passive-aggressively turn this discussion against people, assuming things, etc. If you want a meaningful discussion from me you would have to modify your posts. Until then, no.

    It's all good, sarcasm doesn't translate well in text, and because of a lot of attitudes expressed, it's hard to tell sarcasm from srs bsns on these types of topics. Yes, free speech exists, but it's not going to get any results without tact and well thought out arguments. You can insult the opposition all day, but all that will achieve is the creation of an "us v them" attitude, and slow progress more than it needs to be. Right now, the "bigots" hold all the cards, and can decide whether to change the laws or not.
    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.
