Are you telling the world you're ignorant, Brucie? Don't you have any, ahem, "pride" in your ancestors?
*snicker*
Seriously... You continue to make a fool of yourself. Stop it while you have a tiny shred of dignity.

Do you think all gay people belong to a single organization? You act as though we're some major force to be reckoned with.

The truth of the matter is that there are some main LGBT players, but no one really speaks for the entire gay community.

We, as individuals, have put our issues out into the public forum. We, as individuals, have come out of the closets so that our families, friends, co-workers, and communities can see who we are--so that they can see that we're not some faceless stranger. We, as individuals, have educated society--letting them know that there really isn't a great difference between gay and being straight.

We don't rely on "talking points". We speak our own truth.

That you think there is a conspiracy of gay people out to change the world is kind of sad. It really is.

It just shows how little you know.

I say this in all sincerity; educate yourself instead of constantly making a fool of yourself.

A stupid poster from San Dimas or what the IPP indicates. Just another toilet paper replacement for he city council and city manager

Glendora, California has one of the most crooked local governments in the SGV. Not only to they lie their pants off but they steal from the poor and give to the rich.

A fee levied with all the powers of taking you to court and taking your property, business and home away from you, IDIOTS that's called a TAX.

Since u know so much about the bible, then u would know that God gave Jesus the authority to judge us. So apparently that isn't a "FACT!!"

Republicans are “in a demographic death spiral” and will fail in their effort to win the presidency in 2016 if the party blocks an immigration overhaul.

Even leading GOP senator are saying Sunday June 16, 2013. and just who would help them out the most? Racists just like the GOP, RNC and Tea Party hater's..

Maybe some SkinHeads cousins in some overseas goo-log might apply.

My response was well thought out and logical. You asked why heterosexual people should support gay marriage. I responded. Then you asked why I don't support other forms of "marriage equality", such as polygamy and incest. And I told you very clearly that I HAVE supported other types of marriage equality; namely heterosexual marriage.
Irrational and ignorant as usual.

OK, I won't support SSM any more than. Deal?

These types of marriages are fraught with abuse and other damaging dynamics--enmeshment, jealousy, poor boundary divisions, abuse (physical and sexual, esp. in incestuous marriages), etc.
Bigot.

<quoted text>
I fully realize that these types of problems can occur within traditional heterosexual marriages. However, we have methods in place to deal with them.
Yeah, so it's OK so long as it is only happening in heterosexual or homosexual relationships?

Like I said- irrational and ignorant.

We do not have processes in place to deal with the issues that a child would experience should he or she feel neglected by a parent who has not only multiple spouses, but also has multiple families.
So because YOU think it's an issue, it must be one? How about the child who feels neglected by their mother because they don't have one in a same-sex male relationship?

Again- irrational and ignorant.

If incestuous relationships become acceptable, this young woman would have little recourse in her attempts to refuse her father's attempts to forcibly marry her.
Really? Now allowing something means you can be forced into it?

Interesting. How many males or females will be forced into same-sex marriages once it is legalized?

Again- irrational and illogical.

These are only a couple of many, many examples of the issues that plague polygamy and incest.
Not really issues at all, much like you whine about people generalizing the "horrors" that will come from same-sex marriage legalization you have done the same in each of these cases.

I support marriage between two, consenting, unrelated adults.
You confuse "support" with understanding that your "equal rights" argument is invalid when you are willing to invalidate the right's of others just because you don't like it.

I've seen all kinds of people, gay and straight, who really like their dogs--who'll let them kiss (lick) them on the mouth. I always look at them and think, "You know, that dog was just licking his ass or his nuts."

Is that what you're talking about, ya geezer?

You straight people should hang around more gay people so that you can see that we live the same lifestyles as you; we just happen to be attracted to someone who is the same gender as us. That's the only difference.

If you needed a liver transplant, your body wouldn't know if it came from a gay person. Hell, you probably come into contact with gay people every other day and don't know it.

So what you're essentially saying is that if I support marriage between unrelated, opposite-sex/same-sex, consenting adults, then I have to accept all marriages. Is that right?

Then using that logic, if I support killing someone during war or through the use of capital punishment, then I must also support murder and abortion--all types of killing.

I'm not buying it and neither are you...

Classic.

You admit gay sex is more like a dog compared to the vast majority of heterosexual sexual activity, and then call it 'dirty talk' when it gets exposed.

Your denial would be funny if it wasn't so extreme.

That is what they so desperately want you to think, that is the line they have been failing at pushing for months now.

If that is all they have, no wonder they are losing so badly in state after state.
