Legal sexual deviancy (taboo) is a part of most people life in our society; (Bill Clinton's Cigars) this is a major reason resulting in the flawed acceptance of the homosexual life style. My views sets personalities aside from the act of homosexuality as well as religion, I value both. I pass no judgments on any sexual deviancies as long as they are legal and in the space of their own privacy. I however have problems with open discussions and acts of homosexuality in public forums and in public view of our kids, as I do with bestiality, incest and many other unnatural sexual acts that our youth will act upon by mere innocence to its exposure, ask any teachers if they have not already been exposed to unnatural sexual cases in the elementary and junior high schools. To dismissed this facts from the discussion of public acceptance is ignorance and self-serving.
Since the sixties and the open closet offence, statistics have proven that sexual assaults on the young has increased tremendously in percentage as well as other sexual crimes, yes, most sexual offenders and predators are or have homosexuals tendencies, however you will not find any documented statistics in this regard ( 15 years of investigating sexual crimes makes me better informed than most, an expert ). By law homosexuals are an effected group and any reference to its contribution to a crime may result in legal liabilities to a law-enforcement department and the prosecution of the crime, Yes don't ask, don't tell, don't document is part of police departments none specific policies which all understand well and fear.
Documented fact, several impartial private investigators have gain access to our prison facilities and their intended resources and written books and papers acknowledging that most serial killers are admitted homosexuals, as are sexual offenders and predators, the FBI in writing their protocol for criminal profiling came up with the same conclusion. Another ill effect to our society which we haven't and are afraid to view with insight and foresight.

Fruit for thought, most porn sites are rich in videos of lesbian acts, therefore you will have to acknowledge that it would not be far fetch to believe that a great number of those girls would have had to be exposed to illegal lesbian acts prior to legal age. Now if one were to research for prosecution of female on female sexual crimes you would be surprise that its almost none existent in our court rooms. Why? Mainly is due to the lack of physical evidence in most of these cases, but more alarming is societies attitude which wishes to ignore circumstantial evidence much more than in any other criminal offences. In other words emotional damages to our underage female in our society is being over looked by propaganda like the one questioning, what's the harm of two people of the same sexual gender loving each other has been very effective, but chooses to ignore the effects on our kids, and the social and economic future of our country, most have no idea. Homosexuals and their supporters attack those who have been effected by the homosexual life style with intolerance and accuse religions of hypocrisy. the facts are that all those offending priests are homosexuals and are more representative of the homosexual community than they are of their religion.
By Collins "coming out" I know it to be a self-serving act, there is no other reason. We have laws that protect him already, so why? We can conclude that he has increased his circle of potential partners and job security as an effected class for sure, and that he does not give a damn about people like me who know that he knowingly acted in a reckless manner. In my case I see it as a recruitment of our children, emboldening sexual predators, now they can tell their next child victim, look at Collins and the other players call him a hero.
debunked. However tangible studies of separated twins when infants around the world, have discovered many twins were one is a homosexual and the other is not sharing the same genes. This can only result as social exposure as the premises to homosexuality, like any other unnatural sexual behavior, a fetish . Why it is that many other countries have less homosexuals per capital than the U.S., Our black communities are not as tolerant of homosexuality as whites are and as a result they significantly have much less sexual crimes against their children, in the Middle East its almost none existent, intolerance yes, but if you analyze it there almost no child sexual abuse, parents are not full time body guards as they are here in the U.S. and the kids are not subject home imprisonment as they are here for fear. No I don't feel that Collins is a hero.

What a weird country.

Coming out as gay offends huge numbers of people yet ogling at underage girls is a national pastime as long as those girls call themselves cheerleaders.

<quoted text>Why not praise him for graduating for being a black man who graduated from Stanford? His sex romps is a private bedroom issue, so why does the White House need to even comment. Are they trying to prove that gay men can not play basketball? If Michael Jordan were gay and cheating on his wife, it would not matter to the media. But, Kobe cheats on his wife and he is ostracized. I wonder how Magic became the face of the Dodgers, since he got AIDS while cheating on his wife with a gay transsexual.
If the media wishes to report, then let them do it without bias instead of trying to manipulate the weak-minded.
sadly, we can expect the demoralizing media to take the low road, but the 'white house' should stay the hell away from such comments because those in office are supposed to represent the nation, not just an immoral minority group. disgusting - and we should hold those who voted for this guy accountable!

i suggest having a conversation with those who have OBAMA 2012 bumper stickers......

Pompous, confused gibberish. A pseudo-intellectual attempt to justify your own bigotry.

Dismissed.

Idiocy. Does "exposure" to heterosexual acts turn gay people into straight ones? Homosexuality, male or female, is coded from birth so far as we know. There's NO reason to believe that lesbianism is the product of "illegal lesbian acts" (which would those be, anyway?) at an early age.

Just sheer homophobic nonsense, like most of your silly, bloated posts.

Hold ME accountable, asshat. I'll be glad to tell you I voted for Obama, support gay rights and gay marriage, and hate right-wing clowns like you and your buddies.

Can I also approach those with McCain or Romney stickers and laugh at them?:)

I have a Topix idea. Before you post something check to see if it applies to your side of the debate too.
When you can show that I troll or am a bigot, do so. Until then, stuff it, phony.

That's a good word, "Dismiss" Because you and the homosexual agenda seem to want to dismiss the effects the miss leading homosexual propaganda has had in our society. The truth is, that the homosexual agenda is recruitment drive for a sexual fetish, not unlike any of a hundred different fetishes.

You compare ogling to the actual assaults on our youth and our society by the homosexual agenda. Its a movement to turn people into homosexuality for one, maybe your agenda far out weight the sexual abuse of our children, the sex related murders, the sex related suicides etc.... During the last 50 years the movement of open sexuality has had a devastating effect in our society, and the homosexuality movement has been in the forefront of dismissing it.

do what you gotta do, pal.

can you tell me this tho: does your idea of 'fascism' revolve souly around the gay rights issue?

the way i'm seeing it, is that our clear constitutional rights and freedoms are eroding much faster under the so called "liberal" leadership than they do under a more "conservative" one.

if things continue as they are, you and steve may be able to get a legal piece of paper saying that you're 'married', but you won't be able to arm yourselves against the same regime who one day may turn around and incinerate you for it;)
