hmm, who could have predicted this response...
oh right...ME!
I forgot that anything we see with our own eyes is a lie...a required belief in your cult...
Backed right off of that one, didn't you?? How stupid DID you feel after you realized that you'd actually POSTED such ridiculous drivel??

You know, though. You've given me a great idea!! Since the whole world is going to hell and our poor, long-suffering population of children are being raised by (GASP!!!) single parents and (BIGGER GASP!!) GAY PEOPLE, I'm seeing a highly lucrative business opportunity here!!

I'll call it, "Rent-A-Dad"!! I'll hire a bunch of guys with penises and rent them out to go visit the homes of single mothers and Lesbian couples that are raising young sons so they can properly teach those poor boys how to stand in front of a toilet with their dick in their hand. I do NOT know how any woman could EVER teach such a thing on her own son. NOT POSSIBLE!!! Clearly!!

But THAT'S NOT ALL!!! I'll also have a sister company (pun intended) called, "Rent-A-Mom"!!! It'll be the same thing, only it'll be a whole bunch of post-pubescent women that are WAY familiar with tampons and pads. Single fathers and gay male couples raising daughters will have a qualified vagina-owner on call 24/7 to demonstrate tampon usage at that critical moment when their daughter SO needs a mother, but the shocking selfishness of their father(s) prevents her from enjoying such wonders of the world when they need it most!

I have to hand it to you, Jane. You are freaking BRILLIANT!!! I'm going to be RICH RICH RICH!!! I might even become a gay Republican!! Thank you SO MUCH for such a wonderful idea!!

(oh, and in case you're wondering, I'm STILL making fun of you--just to be clear on that!!)

Sure father/mother models fail....
But blended families have more problems and fail at a higher rate.
As far as twisting my words...
A colony of homosexual males would die out in a matter of years depending on the age group of the participants...
A colony of heterosexuals would reproduce and sustain its species for centuries...
Therefore the heterosexual colony is the norm and what nature/God intended.
Now is this cruel or reality?
LOL!!! OMG!! Think, boy, think!!

So your solution to the problem of the perfection-based mother/father families "failing" is to make it more difficult for people to form blended families?? You're not making any sense.

SO WHAT if blended families are a challenge for people to deal with? SO WHAT if they "fail" at a higher rate? SO WHAT??? You and Carol keep hammering that, but SO WHAT??? HOW is that an excuse for anything other than better family planning education??

And, I LOVE your "gays on an island" vs. "straights on an island" analogy!! TOO FUNNY!!!! You DO know that straight people are the primary birthers of gay people, right?? Where DO you think we come from??

So, go ahead! Create your two island paradises! But you KNOW what's going to happen, don't you?? 5-10% of the babies born to the straight people will be.... wait for it.... GAY!!! So in a just a very short time, the population will be integrated again!

Of course, all the old gay guys will be on one island and the young, virile and hot gay guys will be milling about on the other island making the young video game playing, beer-swilling straight guys look bad.

How do you think THAT'S gonna go over when all the pretty young straight girls demand that the straight guys look as good as the hot young gay guys?? Gives "gay boyfriend" a whole new meaning, doesn't it??

I'm thinking you need to abandon that whole idea. You're just going to cause trouble for those poor, unattractive, not very sexually capable straight boys. Not nice!

Well, you know some people believe that it is welfare foist upon the Black family due to the "Great Society" program of Johnson that started the downfall of the Black family. While that might be true adding another problem for the Black family to cope with certainly is not helpful.
You so blame welfare and not the crippling racism and shocking treatment of African Americans throughout most of history??

That's kind of amazing, don't you think?

Have fun. I hope you get some education some day. You sure do need it!
Well that's two of us ignoring the lunatic. Hopefully more will jump on board. No point engaging with such people. There's no value in it.

i don't surprise me that you ( a homo) would be ok with the breakdown of traditional aa families. but concerning kids being kicked out their homes for irr. i personally have no problem with irr, except when the media promotes this over black love. cuz the last thing aa need is more division and social engineering that leads to this.
however, for those kids, if your parents say irr isn't ok in their house, and you can't respect that you should be kicked out.
**ALWAYS RESPECT YOUR PARENTS**
You are twisted, and apparently you were raised that way.

Respect? Coming from you, that's a joke.

i would be too sure bout that. homosexuality is only ok in the white community. it will never be accepted among aa and other non-whites. the natural revulsion to the perversion of the male homo is hard coded in our genes. and the backlash will be like a storm cloud coming over the horizon.
Oh so you speak for a whole community now? You dumbass. You sound just like the racist white people who said stuff like that about you.

I know a whole lot of gay black people, and they are not hiding from anybody. Don't assume your little experiences in your little corner of the world can be extrapolated to the whole population.

Thanks to people like Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, and others, opinion about gay marriage has dramatically shifted in the aa community recently. Deal with it. Are you going to be left behind? A relic? You'll end up just like the KKK, marginalized as an extremist wacko while the rest of the world grows up around you.

It's an even greater shame when minorities take ignorance-based attitudes like yours. Fool.

I don't disagree with this...

But please be honest, if the average WW in the EVERYDAY media looked like Rosie O'Donnell and she was portrayed as a loud agressive low class woman...

Do you think WW would enjoy turning on the TV...wouldn't they be depressed when they watched that image of WW, every time they turned on TV. May turn to overeating or some other destructive behavior.

Now let's look at it from a mans point of view..we all know that men want the woman who's being pushed as classy, feminine.

Who wants the loud ghetto type that mainstream media is pushing of blk women.

Even if a pie is delicious if the media is showing it in a negative light, the image of thatvpievis going to be media based.

I agree many times they are very attractive men, lol.

But again I'm a widow and is in a single parent home...I'm not going to sugarcoat my model as best... It's far from best.

Mothers sometimes are easier on their sons and fathers are sometimes easier in their daughters....

So the male/female interaction is highly beneficial to the family.

Then the churches should do what other organizations do: open a separate 501 c 4 political affiliate. We're not really talking about the tax exemption of the entity here. We're talking about tax deductibility of contributions made for charitable purposes.
When it comes to that, what traditional charitable function do the 501 c 3's AFA and FRC perform? Do they feed the hungry? Clothe the poor? House the homeless? Care for the sick? Educate the underprivileged? McDonalds provides more charitable services than either of these two organizations.
My original comment was responding to snypers threat that the tax exempt stautus of Churches be removed... No mention was made of the FRC or AFA..

If you want these groups donors not to be able to write off their donations than why dosent the IRS come down on them?

Churches that speak up in defense of marriage will maintain their tax status as well as their deductability of their donors.

That was my point and it stands.

Straight woman like hanging out with gay guys because they are a non threat to them sexually. They get all the benifits of having a male freind with no expectations of sex.
