    You got that right. The Left's form of enlightenment is pretty much anything outside of traditional family values.

    You'll notice the AV Club icon, which clearly indicates which part of the Onion that article belongs. So, what we can take from all this, is that most, if not all, homosexuals are freaks at heart, and when you put them together in large masses, it becomes a modern day Sodom & Gomorrah.

    Now, I'm not interested in any more idiotic diversions. You ignored my other links about the dangers homosexuals bring to community health, and that's where this discussion will return.

    Welcome back to the original argument.
    You are wrong about this. I told you exactly why and proved it and you continue to bring up stuff that has nothing to do with what I showed proved that it was fake. The parade didn't happen, the group that "sponsored" the parade doesn't exist, and the professor quoted in the article doesn't exist. It was satire, fiction, full of bologney.

    Heck, you apparently don't even know what Sodom and Gomorrah was about since you are trying to reference it in this debate when same sex marriage nor homosexuality had anything to do with those stories either.

    It can as easily be argued that the Right's form of enlightenment is pretty much anything outside of freedom and liberty. Not that I truly believe either argument, or at least not with such a broad brush. Traditions come and go, old ones die out and new ones develop and some old ones even get revived. I mean how traditional do you really want to go? We could go back to arranged marriages and the showing of the bloody bed-sheets.

    Given that NONE of the homosexuals protest these stupid parades, tells me that they tolerate them at the very least. "Freak" relative to parading rainbow tights, and S&M leather outfits in public. You know, the stuff you deem perfectly normal.
    I would guess that you are rather isolated as I've heard protests from people within the GBLT community. They, quite frankly, see such parades as detrimental to their attempts to be treated equally. They also, however, tend to also recognize the freedom that these people have to hold such events, thus there are few formal protests. As to "freak", have you been to a con lately and seen the cosplayers? Now there are some freaky people! And most of them pretty darn cool.

    not quite.
    Quite

    That's the onion! HA HA HA (Breathes) Ha ha haha. You seriously built your argument on a fictional newspaper article? It's FAKE dude, the entire article is fake. The parade didn't happen, the people interviewed were characters, the NYU professor was made up. The real parades have been relatively tame and wholesome. I go to gay bars on occasion and they have the exact same stuff that regular bars have (except better music and more gays). No sex orgies, or devil worship, or immorality of any kind. They are normal people, get over it.

    On the issue of polygamists, there are no polygamist bars so I don't know how they compare . If they want to get married, let them. "Marriage" only has meaning if you give it one and it only has the meaning you give it. If polygamists want to get married, then it means what they want it to mean, by definition. The only issue is how we deal with the taxes and other legal issues that arise from marriage. I suggest that we completely separate "marriage" from the government in any way, then it doesn't matter.

    Why are you still typing? Get one small victory during these debates, and now you're trying to chest up.

    OK, tough gal, tell me about Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Sodom and Gomorrah are not relevant to the US Constitution and the law.

    Neither is liberalism, yet the Left keeps trying to change them.

    Red herring. I'm not talking about liberalism, I'm talking about Sodom and Gomorrah. And that story is irrelevant to marriage law.

    Irrelevant. You're talking about something that has nothing to do with my argument.
