I love that guy who painted the message. It's definitely better to make social commentary than it is to attire oneself as Mick Jagger.

Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing and if people don't like the sign then close your eyes you'll get over it.

IF everyone were "Gay" 110 years ago there would be no-one left today to be "Gay".

Actualy our founding fathers for the most part were humanists, Washington, Jefferson, both Adams. The penn. deligation was very quaker heavy, but the had Ben Franklin as a humanist as well.
I think most people would be suprised that we as a nation are far more religouse than this nation was at its conception.
I personly have no problem w/ homosexuality, its not a choice, you are born that way, plain and simple, some may be confused, but the vast majority are born gay. The fact is is, it is the one group of our population which still does not have equal rights. So you argue that they are to small of a % of the population to worry about, well then the NRA falls in the same category, as more people are openly gay than are members of said political orginization. As well that % does not count the married closet cases that we all here about in reststop/airport bathrooms.

The founding fathers were liberals

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State.

more Jefferson

"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.
-Thomas Jefferson to Alexander von Humboldt, Dec. 6, 1813.

The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus."

-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp, 30 July, 1816
