This country is 99% plus straight yet the less than 1% gay community holds us hostage. We need to take back this country. Being gay is not right, we do not need to appease our gays like David Stern and Obama. Gays need help.

Quit blabbering, idiot, no one needs your bigoted opinion over and over. Being a dumbass bigot like you isn't right.

Don't dig other men? Don't be gay. And STFU.

The only reason people are fearful of gay people is because they're unsure of their own sexuality.

I'm a heterosexual male (been with my mate/girlfriend for over 28 years), but I have no problem with my gay friends, they're entitled to the same respect as everyone else!

Welcome to the 21st Century NBA!

Even though gays are a very small minority in America, they are dangerous bc they tried to imposed their ideas on others and they have strong political connections. Our pols and NBA leaders dare not offend them but we the ppl, the 99% plus must stand up against them. No special nor preferential tx for them , which is eating up our country.

<quoted text>Why did Earving Magic Johnson get AIDS? Answer from having gay anal sex with a transsexual. Fact.
How come Magic's son is now gay and a feme gay? Don't know, but the odds of a straight minded man having AIDS and a gay son, are very slim.
So, why was Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods demonized and hated for having adultery sex and Magic is seen as a gay hero for having adultery anal transsexual sex? Answer,the gay agenda which is to lie and deceive.
You can remain blind and dumb, if you want, by gay is not the new pet. It kills at a higher rate than transsexualism.
Don;t forget, Kobe is also a cheater as well as a rapist!

Yet people can be born with one leg, people can be born blind, with mental illness, blood born disorders, born with diseases that effect the spinal cord,

People can be born with all sorts of genetic imperfections, and imperfections which effect the mind and perception...

But no one can be born with same sex attraction?

Interesting...

So is creation still perfect...after 'the fall of man?'

So are people born 'sinless'?

Did humans inherit a 'sinless nature?'

What does the news headlines say about that...

teach me something...
