A 95 year old man is killed by police!

Authorities said John Warna was a resident at Victory Centre of Park Forest, on the 100 block of South Main Street in the south suburb

He was threatening paramedics and staff with a cane and a metal shoehorn, then the police tazered and shot him with bean bags until he was pronounced DEAD.

The benchmark, huh... Interesting...
1.)$72,000,000,000 spent on weddings in this country each year. Average cost of a wedding today is $20,000. What a spectacle.
2.)$175,000,000,000 spent on divorce litigation in this country each year. Divorce costs an estimated $30,000,000,000 to tax payers each year.
3.) 40,000,000 abortions each year world wide. In just over 7 years, you straight people put to death about 300,000,000 babies. That's equal to the population of America.
4.) There are approximately 24,000,000 kids in America without a father figure.
----------
Wouldn't you agree that those are some pretty staggering numbers?
I'd say your collective values on marriage and family pretty much suck.
So, when you offer yourself up as "the benchmark", I say "No thanks..."
This is due to the fact that WE are NOT the minority.
Money is spent everywhere.
Further examination of some of those statistics, along demographic lines, would show a disparity in racial trends. Not to be confused with "heterosexual" trends. You imply that you have as many babies as we do, and have nowhere near the rates that you accuse us of. This is intellectually dishonest, at best.

that's another trip into "fantasy land" for you.
1) I was responding to KiMare, not you.
2) It wasn't aimed at you, it was aimed at the "bent rod into a straight hole" statement.
3) I suggested that you prove your integrity by chiding your fellows when they sh!t on religion, as that attacks both sides, not just mine.
4)"Hammer that f*cker, until it fits, never mind all the grunting and splinters...." also applies to the argument that SSSB couples are "the same as the rest of us" argument. It has multiple meanings and contexts.
5) "Why don't you start by policing yourself and maybe the rest of the room will follow your lead." as a jsuggestion from you leads me to believe that you ignored the time when "littlebrain" was here, and I was going after him, even though he was on my side of the fence.
Summation: You're so paranoid and emotional that you will act aggreived, when no offense has come your way. Furthermore, you cannot be a social worker, as you seem to have no critical ability to separate the imagined from the real. You type a few rational posts, then divert into "fantasy-land" and have no realization of this break with reality.
My diagnosis: Narcissism. Paranoid Delusions. Bi-Polar Syndrome.
You should stop playing around with terms you don't understand. Oh, and there's this little tool called "spellcheck" that you might want to look into. Finally, work on sentence structure so that maybe I and others can understand just what the hell you're talking about.

When you get it together, try again.

If I remember my history well, and I do, I believe you'll find that interracial couples had to fight for the right to marry. That ban was overturned in 1967 by way of judicial intervention.
As far as your marriage being balanced--hardly. Divorce, domestic violence, child abuse, abortion, parental abandonment... Those things are on YOU.
See, you like to paint the LGBT community with a pretty broad brush, but then freak out if we do the same to you.
I think it's precious when you've bought into your own bullshit rhetoric.
You guys need to take a long, hard look in the mirror. It ain't pretty.
Not at all, Captain Clusterf**k. Those things are on us, because we were the only players in the game. Now, you've entered the arena and your numbers, as shown by percentages, will show a remarkable similarity, when some time has elapsed.
I'm not the "freakout artist", that's on YOU.

Oh Lord, you must have misread what I wrote. I have never claimed that we invented marriage. We just intend on doing a better job at it.
Like I said, so many of the same-gender couples who are currently getting married have already been together for years. And same-gender couples who adopt children REALLY want them. You should see the hoops they have to jump through in order to qualify. You tend to appreciate things that you have been denied.
You guys have just gotten sloppy is all. But we'll be happy to let you to follow our lead from now on.
Not yet, you haven't. But, you will. Your smugness leaves me cold.

History hasn't been too kind to slaves and women. But look at them now. Even though illegal slavery continues to exist, there isn't a country on the planet that sanctions the enslavement of others. And women have made amazing strides over the past century or so.
That's where we are in this country (and around the world). As I have said numerous times, since the Age of Enlightenment, scientists, political leaders, some religious leaders, and society in general have stopped relying on myths and focus now on scientific knowledge, freedom, and equality.
So there you have it... The LGBT movement is just another step along the way towards a path of equality for all.
1) Slavery exists and thrives in Africa. Land of the Zulus, the strong ones, who enslaved their own. While Whitey gets reviled for being a part of the institution that was monopolized by Neg...African-America.....Wait , how do I name black people, without using the hyphenated titles?
2) The LBGT movement has no right to stand next to the racial equality movement.

Those formal and informal bans on homosexual relationships were clearly established on religious, non-scientific beliefs and understandings about gays and lesbians.
Historical mistreatment of a minority group CANNOT be the basis for continued mistreatment; especially in light of the fact that (now pay particular attention to this) GAYS AND LESBIANS ARE NOT NOW CONISDERED TO BE DISORDERED OR UNNATURAL.
We have collectively learned that the way we viewed homosexuality throughout a great deal of history WAS WRONG!
Other radical shifts in scientific belief include:
--The discovery and acceptance that the world is not flat.
--The discovery and acceptance that the earth is not the center of the universe.
--The discovery and acceptance that illnesses are not related to an invasion of evil spirits or demonic possession.
--The discovery and acceptance that there are core elements that make up the world we live in.
--The discovery of the atom.
--The discovery and acceptance of working within a sterile medical setting to reduce the number of deaths from infections.
I could go on and on, but hopefully, you see my point.
The discovery and acceptance of homosexuality being a natural and normal orientation has been a game-changer in the way that society will forever look at gays and lesbians.
Short of some kind of worldwide, cataclysmic event that destroys all knowledge, we are not going to revisit the issue of homosexuality as being a disorder ever again.
Oh, lord, here we go again...
I'll give you a "non-scientific" story that I heard in the gas station, yesterday..
The clerk, with whom I am friends, told me about one of his gay friends(go figure)..
It seems that the little fella was having it off with one of his boo-foos, and they got to humming them bones so hard, that the innards of the gay friend got pulled out. 6 inches of rectum. Pulled out. Had to ask his MOM, with whom he was living, to drive him to the hospital.
Poor woman...
Now, if your "version' of sex was "natural", as you claim, this would not happen.
Compare THAT to your list of observable and verifiable facts.
