How is it that people think they are special because of their preference of who to stick their dick or tongue in?

Very ignorant of you.
But let's talk about freedom of speech the churches are said to be fighting over. I was on the Church of the Rock churchoftherock.ca and I was on for between 10 and 15 minutes before my post and myself were removed.
My Post:
I've been on churchoftherock.ca on facebook and in just 15 minutes I have been cut from access because of my views. The will not accept views contrary to their own.

Therefore, I do condemn the Church of the Rock, the leadership and Ken McAllister, a big wheel in the surge of getting 'the faithful' to think of Bill-18 an assault on the church rather than the church being an assault upon homosexualities with their insistence upon the texts in the Bible.

I am very surprised at this and the complete backwardness of this church and others. It was not too many decades in the past when the church had to give up its views of Jews being the killers of Christ and therefore hated. This, in part, allowed the church to back Hitler in his murder of millions of Jews in the Holocaust. Lets remember that homosexuals were murdered too.

This type of backsliding by the church into their repulsive, oh we're so good, hatreds to allow them to hate as they do is wrong. I will not stop in my fight for the rights of homosexuals and others their total rights as human beings and to not be thought other wise by the guile of church freedoms!

Bring it Ken. I will not allow others to suffer your mental illness you've proved here in the newspaper and in your continued assault from the dungeons of your Church Of the Rock.

I suggest all those being led down the wrong route by the Church of the Rock to rethink your wrongful ideas and to find a church that does not promote that that is proved wrong when that hurts others and leads to their being bullied and all to often murdered for who they are.

I suggest you people think rather than praying as Ken insists on preying on those who are different.

Churches are conservative in nature and they hold to long held dogma. Expecting them to change quickly is unrealistic. Churches have been a bullying type of organization and have been called the opiate of the people by Marx for their ability to exercise social control. Losing its power means it loses its influence and it become obsolete.

Hobo is a homo who fears what he is, so he takes that irrational fear out on gays who don't want to spend their entire lives hiding in the closet because of the outdated attitude of religious extremists.
