Why is it their business anyway, why can' they just leave us alone who are we bothering? What I do with my Partner of nearly 6 years is none of their concern, they try to use a 3000 year old fairy tale to justify everything, time to get over it and let us live like the americans we are, why am I paying taxes anyway, I pay all my taxes and get half my rights.

Go ahead and pay your taxes,everyone else does too. You fellas make me and other decent people sick. Grow up and be a man. You will think your so called fairy tale was a farce when ilt comes to the appointed time for your death, however you know what you and people like you are headed for I challenge you and others to get on your knees and ask God for forgivness. You can do it and God will supply all your desires and give you a life of decency. If you think that this a lot of steam, you are goilng to be shocked when that time comes. Please give your heart to God Thomas of Amityville

Is this subject topical because HOMOSEXUALS continually try to shove their lifestyle into the face of HETROSEXUALS, et. al.?

Just a question ...

Your bible, not mine, I am a practicing wiccan, I do not recognize your bible nor your god, sorry to break it to you, our constitution allows for freedom of religion, I do not appreciate you forcing your beliefs on me as I do not share them.

I do not, I stay at home and do not try to firce my lifestyle on you or anyone else, all I ask is that I am allowed to enjoy the same rights you do. I am pretty sure the constitution guarantees that, or at least I was. "All men are created equal" not all straight men are created equal, unless they changed it recently.

It's not being shoved in your face. Homosexuals are only trying to get the same rights that heterosexual marriages provide. The only thing being shoved in anyone's face is your religion of bigotry and hypocrisy.

Since you don't agree with equal rights for all, as supposedly guaranteed by our Constitution, you are not an American. Perhaps you are the one who should leave?

It's not a choice and hell was invented by the Catholic church to persuade more people to follow a religion based off older religions.

Religious beliefs aside; "Natural law" is against homosexual behavior.

I know I will offend some people but for me personally, I think it is a choice who you shack up with. Outside of this arena, I work with some gay folks. I don't have no problem with it as long as they don't flaunt it.

Now that I was being honest but not spiteful; "Bring it on." I'm sure I'll get an earful.

"My religion ...?" Thank you for hitting me with clusterbomb!

If you think placing your penis in anothers' bum, tribadism, rimming and mimicking sexual relations between members of the opposite sex gets you "farther down the road" than others ... You are intitled to your opinion and quote ... alternative lifestyle ... endquote as far as I'm concerned.

I take it that you do not participate in "parades," "acting up," or any other "festivals" celebrating your lifestyle in front of others who may be part of our society and find it troubling to view men kissing men/women kissing women; let alone fondling in public places such as Disney World, etc.?

Cheers and have a really GAY day!

So many wrong statements on this post. There are several species in "Nature" that hold homosexual relationships. The Girafe being one of them. As far as homosexuality being a "choice", that is also not accurate. People like what they like because of certain chemical balances in the brain. This is done by nature, not by an individuals choice.

To those of you thumping on your bibles, why not reference what it tells you about passing judgement on others? About being tolerant of those not like you? Do you own slaves? The bible says this is OK. Do you require the women in your lives to remain outdoors during their time of the month? This is required as written in the old testament. Do you shave your face (Men)? This is also strictly forbidden in the bible. With you breaking all of these rules that you are basing your claims of being a decent person on, I would have to say that it is you who is indecent.

BTW - I am not homosexual, but I believe that this group of Americans has been discriminated against for far too long.
