    In the end, I will still vote and rally against it. I have no idea how this puts me at odds with the Constitution, and it's not like I care. I will continue to stand up for what I believe in and you can save your rants for someone who mite care.
    Uhm...I'm sorry?
    You're not going to respond after I responded to you?
    Is it because I'm right? I put some pretty good questions in there that I was looking forward to you answering.

    You do realize trying to tell people you're not intolerant of religious people, trying to empathize with them and identify with them by telling a story about your mother and her extremely strict grandfather, and in the end telling them you understand them and its okay because you know they all believe what they do simply because of fear and because they're mindlessly obidient isn't helping your case but is just patronizing and insulting....right?

    It'd be like someone saying that they don't really mind gay people, and empathize with you about it because their dad was gay at one point because his uncle touched him in a bad place, so they understand how you view things the way you do because of a bad childhood but don't want you imposing your views on them.

    You're trying to empathize, but you're grossly stereotyping and belittling them.

    I understand your attempt, and I think you're honestly honestly wanting to be nice about this...but your words really, really aren't coming across that way.

    Okay, I posted that because that's what she said to me and it made sense.
    It's all fear, that's what it is. I am not stereotyping or belittling anyone. I completely understand and I'm glad my mother didn't raise me that way.
    I just want people to think for themselves. You can't just follow the crowd all the time.
    I am honestly wanting to be nice about this. I would never say anything bad where my own mother is concerned.

    Not really, but as long as you are happy, I am also.

    Here, I'll shorten it up for you. I'll post my response one piece at a time.

    Tell me, blackdog, what do you think about my Christian family completely agreeing with me?
    I'm pretty much taking some of the things I say right out of their mouths.
    I believe everything they say because I'm pretty sure they know what they're talking about.
    Now, my grandfather was a pastor of a church he helped to build. He know the bible inside and out, I kid you not.
    He agrees with me. He doesn't believe there should be any discrimination against homosexuality for whatever the reason may be.

    It's funny when religious people accuse others of ranting.

    Uh...this time it wasn't even a rant. It was just a long response.

    It was indeed a rant repeating the same "your horrible" "innocent people" again and again.

    Like I said, be happy.

    Oh, get over it. It's just an observation, not an ad hom. Those kind of things drive me mad too.
