The overwhelming tide is to allow gay marriage. I wouldn't worry about those diminishing squinty eyed fools not liking it. Within 10 years it will be a non-issue if Tommy Two Tones wants to marry Slim Jim.

Gay movement first put pressure on mental health industry to CHANGE being gay from mental illness to normal lifestyle.

Yea, less than 2% of population is living gay lifestyle, and the other 98% are expected to accept they are not crazy.

Its the end times...

In any dispute of such magnitude you'll find all sorts of malcontents on both sides of the fence. Why let that detail get in the way of reason and fact? I have presented the same argument about inheritance and end of life issues as marriage relates to them. The difference is I am not gay so I cannot deliver from his perspective.
I'm surprised that, in spite of having known and been friends with numerous homosexuals, veryvermilion is the one who made you think you could change your tune.
mabey he hasnt gotten a chance to tell those he knew personally how he really feels about them.....after all, it is some pretty ugly stuff.....enough to start a good fight...

where as on the internets...he can really vent his feelings..

and thus become more vulnerable to the truths he is hiding from.

Exactly. Most people against it think it's icky and makes them uncomfortable. That's how most people feel about spiders and snakes. Maybe we should ban them. Lol

I guess you would not see it that way, but the law disagrees with you Dan. 30 year old's are not allowed to have sex with 16 year old's. period.

But it does make one a criminal in California. And potentially a felon.

Was Harvey Milk perfect? No... Did anyone think that he would become known worldwide as an outspoken advocate for gay rights? Probably not...

He was unique in that he had a vision of what the world could be like for gays. And he was a product of the times--the sexual revolution--the free love movement.

It's highly unlikely that he would have gone much further in politics other than the city office he briefly held. We'll never know since he was gunned down.

And it was his killing that really galvanized the gay community in San Francisco, which eventually spread across the country.

So, say what you will about Harvey Milk and his personal mistakes, but his life and murder is one of the things that started the modern LGBT movement. Just because you don't agree with the way he lived his early personal life, you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Furthermore, I guarantee there are high ranking politicians who are in office today, who also have skeletons in their closets.

Does that mean that their positive impact on society should be tossed out?

Martin Luther King Jr. is alleged to have been an adulterer. Should that make his powerful movement for civil rights any less of an accomplishment?

John F. Kennedy was also a womanizer. But he did amazing things.

FDR had affairs. Yet he is considered to be one of the greatest presidents our country has ever seen.

Strom Thurmond, who held great political power for many, many years. When he was 23, he had an "affair" with his mother's 15 year old maid. She became pregnant and gave birth to Essie Mae Washington-Williams.

Thurmond was elected Governor of South Carolina in 1947 and stayed in politics as a U.S. senator until 2003.

Obviously, today we look at Thurmond's record regarding racial inequality and think of him as a bigot. But for many, many years, the state of South Carolina heralded him.

I guess what I hope that you take way from this is that people make mistakes in their lives. Some atone for their errors, some don't. But there is a tenet of Christianity regarding "forgiveness".

And I think that in Harvey's situation, as well as other people's lives, we would do well to remember that core, Christian principle.

the gay marriage agenda is the beginning of a diabolical trend to make the homosexual life style legitimate ,..
it is a plan that envisions the gay life style as totally 'normal' and acceptable through out the American society and eventually the world
