Does the public know that Wal-Mart pays poverty wages? Does the public know that the Waltons are one the richest families in the world?
According to the Forbes 400 list, they're worth a combined $107.8 billion.
Full-time Wal-Mart employees earn $12.89 an hour, which places them in that poverty level.

The more rational gays know this, so they commit suicide. You insane gays just stick around long enough to poop on the lawn and leave it messy before you leave.
Pop, dogs, and children. Yeah, these are the thoughts of a rational man.

That is a sad attempt to generalize, pal. There is no such thing as an "anti-gay homophobe", because the term originated in psychiatric circles, used to describe self-loathing in latent homosexuals. The only homophobes are the gays who experience self-hatred and self-denial. Are they bigots ? Who's to say, as they are judging themselves ? They have that right. And to attempt to claim that there no gays, anywhere, wishing to marry children is such an unadulterated lie, that it makes you look foolish. You should stick to facts, and not make up silly little lies that can be examined and found to be false. You run the risk of appearing to be nothing short of another "JodieDoDo", or a "Chongo"... At least, you haven't slipped into "LittleBrain" territory...
The best you can do is argue semantics? You know exactly what is meant by the terms in the current popular usage.

Do you have some sort of logical argument, other than pretending intellectual superiority?

Yes I do, glad you asked!

My rational argument is that if gender is irrelevant to marriage, number is too.

A Google search that takes all of 5 seconds proves that you don't know what you are talking about. But then, that's been obvious all along.

Weinberg's term became an important tool for gay and lesbian activists, advocates, and their allies. He describes the concept as a medical phobia:

a phobia about homosexuals.... It was a fear of homosexuals which seemed to be associated with a fear of contagion, a fear of reducing the things one fought for home and family. It was a religious fear and it had led to great brutality as fear always does.

That describes you as well! Remember when you written in your headline beneath your username? "A.K.A. Mikey Rizzo".
Yes. Of course I remember. I did that to make it clear my old profile had been disappeared like in some seedy banana republic due to my improper thoughts, but I was still the same old political criminal as when I went by Mike DiRucci.

The reason you don't get disappeared is that your posts aren't provocative, they're just dumb. In other words, you're a dope and present no threat to approved thought. And that's the same reason you get little response from me.

Hope that helps Fruitloops!

I suspect the real reason the word "homophobia" was coined is to inflame any-gay bigots. As such using it is no better than the people it was designed to be used against. It's inflammatory. And meant to be. So be it. Don't bullsh!t us otherwise.

What's wrong with just plain "bigot"? Or maybe make up a neat sounding one that better describes the reality.

This should be good.

Yes, I do. Its current misusage is meant to demonize the anti-gay crowd, and to subjugate it. The current usage of that word is a blatant lie, it is why I take exception to it. I make no pretensions to intellectual ability, I am merely standing up as strongly, for my side, as you are, for yours. Are you expecting any less ? Yes, I have plenty of logical arguments, usually dismissed by your side, as if those arguments mean nothing. We are plagued with propaganda extolling the fact that the majority of Americans support SSM, when, in fact, we do not. I have never met anyone that actually supports it, and I travel the country in a semi, and I ask on the CB radio, I ask people that I deal with, just to see if I am missing anything. I am not. I have even seen a large number of bumper stickers that are being displayed that condemn the notion of SSM. Homosexuality is a behavioral phenomenon, defined as same-gender sexual conduct, and the idea that the institution of marriage is being appropriated by a few libertines, for the financial benefits to be had from the government, cheapens the whole definition and purpose of marriage. It makes a mockery of everything that it has represented, until now. Heterosexual couples and homosexual couples are not equal, but the SSM crowd wishes us to ignore this fact.Unlike homosexuality, heterosexuality is immutable. To define heterosexuality as merely sexual conduct between people of compatible genders is to suppress a fundamental truth about what it means to be human.
All human beings with the exception of hermaphrodites (people with genital deformities) are born with a reproductive system that is heterosexual by nature. We are either male or female. We have sexual feelings only because of chemical and other processes that are rooted in our procreative heterosexual design. Thus, a male sexual orientation toward a female (or vise versa) is self-evidently normal and natural. By contrast, a male-to-male or female-to-female orientation is self-evidently abnormal and unnatural. For homosexuality to be equivalent to heterosexuality, it would need to be rooted in its own homosexual physiology.
In reality, homosexuality is nothing more than same-gender conduct among people who are innately and unchangeably heterosexual. Homosexuality is thus biologically (and to varying degrees morally) equivalent
to pedophilia, sado-masochism, bestiality and many other forms of deviant behavior, or behavior that deviates from the normal design-based function of the human being.

So, yes I have arguments, but they are likely to be dismissed by your crowd...As if a wave of a hand can disqualify the truth.

Nice try, Purple Passion, but you left out the important part: It became an important tool AFTER it had been misappropriated by the gay and lesbian crowd. Up until then, it had been a professional term used in the exact manner I described. You are attempting to explain away the misuse of this term. You are failing. And I do know what I am talking about. This whole phenomenon is Orwellian.
