I always thought the management of the depot were anti God, anti Christ, anti family and queer.

i always thought you were a little more open-minded than to place your christian god above the spirituality of others

i guess you're not tolerant of the sexual orientations of others, either. that's unfortunate for you..

i just read this article.. what a disgusting thing this group of religious nutcases did. people like you, and her, and the activist group in the article are a dying breed, thank goodness

exposed to nudity? dear article author, give us an example of what you're referring to or cite your f__cking source. the author is clearly hoping people will take that at face value, and some people sadly will. better human beings question everything.

----Christian and proud of it. I do not wear a God pin and do not impose my values on others and expect the same respect for my beliefs. By sponsoring the activities mentioned in this article the depot has given approval of a lifestyle repugnant to my beliefs. Having said that, I have relatives who are homosexual and I love them and they are part of my family. I don't feel it is my mission to save homosexuals from their behavior, but find overt homosexuality not to be gay only sad. If people chose to be homosexual it is their choice and my only request is be what you are going to be with class and dignity and respect my right to not approve of your life style.

you took an article as fact that is clearly extremely biased against what they perceive to be activities promoting homosexual lifestyle. this is not professional journalism you are reading, it's an opinionated commentary presented as a news story.

i am sure most homosexuals respect your personal opinion, but you need to respect their lifestyle choice if you want them to respect your opinion on the subject. it sounds like you are an intolerant person. there is no rational justification for your intolerance. you cannot command that a group of people respect your opinion if you are going to trash their views or engage in name-calling.

Oh hell no. This article wants to site leviticus! Leviticus also states that if you do not worship the hebrew god, that god will turn your enemies against you, kill your fields so you will not be able to eat, and drive you so insane you will eat your own children!
amongst other truely dispicable things.
Then we come to sodom and gomorah, please, isn't this the story of a man who to save the strangers he had in his home he tossed his daughter out into the street so she could be raped and murdered instead of said strangers?
Ya I'm gonna listen to a bunch of people who use that garbage to justify anything.

---I agree---If you are raised with no value system and do not care about others you get worthless people.----problem is that too many of them become managers at the depot and others become politicians and lawyers.

I'm sorry that you've mistaken a radical for a liberal.
