Any time you try to confront his ridiculous bigotry you are told that he is above you, or that you are unoriginal and cannot think of anything to say.
He's either a troll, or one of the stupidest people I have ever encountered on the internet.
Lets give him a double credit.....he's a stupid troll

No, I don't think he's trolling. He's dead serious in his idiocy. It's no act meant to offend. He's really this stupid.

The secular humanists among us don’t understand why anyone would invoke the teachings of the bible regarding homosexuality in the 21rst century. Notice how the date is always mentioned in this debate, as if to say that we are all enlightened now, and the superstitions and old wives’ tales of the bible are all passé.
“I’m smart because I think for myself, and you’re stupid because you believe the bible.” After all, people who believe what the bible teaches are out of step with the current realities of the modern world and the “enlightenment”. Be like us, say the secularists, and leave all of that bible nonsense to the middle ages. Then, you will be free to pursue your own self interests without any artificial constraints on your way of thinking. And that is a sure recipe for hell. The devil is only too happy for people to make up their own moral codes based on what they “feel” is right. 6 billion people on earth with 6 billion different moral codes – a demon’s delight.
You're correct, the restraints of your buybull ARE artificial. That's why we're not concerned with them.

what about left wing bigotry
or gay bigotry towards religion
i'm always suspicious when a question like yours is slanted towards only one side.
if that is your game like Angel you'll find i won't play it.
later maybe tonight but i got places to be today
I'm sorry I could of been a bit more clear, Ill never claim to be smart. I didn't mean to represent one side if that's how it sounds. That's why I talk of tolerance. you don't have to understand others views like others don't have to except yours. Ive said several times I don't understand gay marraige, but after long thought I see how it doesn't effect me eithef way. Ive used examples like hunting to show how peoe don't except my views but I tolerate it because its my right to live my life.

You can't compare a man beating his child to 2 men getting marrre. abuse is unacceptabe. that's why I Say as long as its not hurting or impeeding on others rights. Beating a child is taking that child's right to live free happy and safe.

As far as church views, they change to that's why I used examples of race and drugs. At one time certain churches would not allow minorities in, thats changed and nobody sued. Some churches in the past have used opium to give people "the feeling of god. Drugs are still used today in some religions, probably not so much in the USA. I would expect that christanity has changed its belief on that.

Sorry if I was misunderstood

I have a legit question for you that i dont know about. Who wrote the 1st draft of the bible? When was it written?

news flash for ya. The bible is written for EVERYONE and no he's not pleased with you.
The bible is written for Christians. Not everyone is a Christian, so NO, it's not written for EVERYONE. There are many people that don't give a shit about your book of myths.

Of course he is. He has to rely on presenting ONE person for an entire sect of people. He loves to pretend that "the gays" have universally shared mindset. It's the only way his childish "arguments" work for him.

Imagine if we presented Jim Jones or Fred Phelps as the spokespersons for Christianity!! Or how about the BTK Killer and Jerry Sandusky as the spokespersons for heterosexuals!

Better yet, Eman and Tiffany Moss as the spokespersons for heterosexual parenting.

He's a moron, so he "argues" like one. It's pathetically sad really that people can be as stupid as imposter Earth Angel.

She is a spokesperson in the gay community. So using her when discussing gay issues is very fair.

I for one was totally happy with gays getting FULL BENEFITS with a civil union.
Civil unions NEVER granted the full benefits of marriage. Proving yet again how completely uneducated you are on this subject.

So don't think every christian hates gays we dont..
You fundamentalists only jumped on the civil unions bandwagon AFTER you realized that we weren't going to accept them since they weren't equal. You fought just as hard against them in the beginning as you do against our marriages now. That was a huge mistake on your part, because it only accelerated our marriages. In other words, your own tactics came back to bite you in your ass.....just as they always do.

A bigger point here is will they ALWAYS be allowed to refuse gays.
Look at how gays go after anyone or any organization that dares to refuse them. Gays certainly do not believe in turning the other cheek and going elsewhere.
I love it when you fundies try and pull this bit of bullshit!!! Nothing demonstrates your desperateness more!!! These scenerios ALL started with fundamentalists going after the gays by refusing their services. Had these business owners not felt they could discriminate, they would not be being sued BY THE STATES in which they reside.

And no, we won't be "turning our cheeks" to the discrimination of fundamentalists. We don't have to. We won't be sitting at the back of the bus, or using separate drinking fountains either. We're entitled to their services just like everyone else. If these business owners don't like state and federal laws, they need to close shop. So sorry you don't like that, but we don't like being discriminated against. We're equal citizens, in every way.

I don't see anywhere that gays are saying they'll be ok with churches that refuse them. Show me a gay spokes person saying that.
Right after you show us the gay spokesperson who states they want to be married in a bigot church. Show us the gay spokesperson that has stated they want to spend one of their happiest days being married in a bigot church. Get right back to us on that. As always, we aren't required to defend anything until you can present the threat itself. Good luck with that piss ant.

thanks for the honesty i was curious as to how that works out with twins.
.
Demonstrating yet again how completely uneducated you are about anything being discussed. Twin studies on gays have been conducted for years.

Both as it relates to identical and fraternal twins.

http://www.worldpolicy.newschool.edu/wpi/glob...

Highest rates of shared sexual orientation among identical twins, with lower shared sexual orientation among non-identical twins. The biological correlation has already been established. There are also studies on siblings as well if you care to educate yourself. But we all know you aren't really interested in that.

Fundamentalists will instead try and tout that because there isn't a 100 percent match, that no biological basis has been established. Fundamentalists shill like yourself will also forget to mention that identical twins also don't have a 100 percent match on hundreds of other inate characteristics either, like handidness, eye color, hair patterns, teeth development, musical ability, etc., etc., etc. Because you hate truth.

Glad we could demonstrate again how stupid you are in this arena.

You realize this is EXACTLY what they said before inter-racial marriage, don't you?
do you really want to go down that road ?
which group has the highest broken home ratio ?
which group has the highest crime stats ?
It seems to me that family values do count very much.
So lets keep this about gay marriage before we go down a different road none of us want to talk about honestly.

No misquote. You asked.
It's not a road we don't want to talk about honestly, it's only a road YOU and your shill compadres don't want to go down honestly. The original statement stands as completely accurate. You folk use the "SKY IS FALLING" routine, because it's all you have. You have no facts or valid support for your preconceived prejudices.
