Listen,kid: stop posting your homework in my forum.

And if your gay teacher has a problem with that, tell him to log on and I'll help him resolve it.

I love how you use slippery slope as if it were fact and not the logical fallacy it is.
When you fellows go marching down Main Street it used to be the rainbow flag that was your banner; now it's the erect penis.

On the front cover of your "Little Black Book" the first thing readers see is your erect penis symbol, not the rainbow flag.

In other words you've changed from a civil rights organization to a full-fledged sex cult that worships the erect cock.

If you disagree with this interpretation, tell us why ALL of your parades use giant erect cocks as their rallying symbol.

All I'm trying to do is point out to some of the straights who support same-sex marriage that supporting the LGBT is a slippery slope -- that although the LGBT drapes itself in noble words like "Equality, Tolerance, Diversity" it is little more than a sex cult, and a notoriously degenerate one at that.
Indeed, this is why the LGBT has no visible leaders -- the men behind the scene are men who march in front of Pride parades in penis suits leading their half-nude lovers behinds in with dog leashes. They want to stay anonymous so they can continue wearing their penis suits.
Straights who support you don't grasp this. They believe the average gay male has been in a monogamous relationship for 10 years and would be shocked and appalled by the sexual practices in The Little Black Book.
But The Little Black Book was a joint effort by the most educated and progressive gay males of today -- Boston area gay males.
Pee-play, fisting, rimming, is what gay males do. If you become a gay male it will be what you do. If a child decides to become gay base on your promotion of it as normal, safe, and wholesome as mom's apple pie, it's what he'll end up doing.
He really doesn't have much of a choice.
Anal sex is just not enough so the gay male tries other things -- anything to achieve something he can never have: truly satisfying sex.
The HIV-AIDS epidemic exploded on the scene right after the APA removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
This is what happens when science bends to political pressure.
Not so fast Proffesor Fundie. You come here and spread a lot of bull excrement day after day. You make wild azz claims and never back them up, always changing your tactic.

Now where were we oh yes. So Professor Fundie, tell me how it is that a Pagan does not have the same rights and privileges as a fundie freak like you. I am sure it must be in the US Constitution somewhere that states only God Fearing Fundamentalist Christians are entitled to the rights as stated in the Constitution. Surly a list is given that disallows Buddhist's, Muslims, Hindus, Pagans, Wiccans and atheists the rights that are given to all citizens of this country both natural born and naturalized.

What are the laws that have been past that demand you marry someone of the same sex.

What law has been passed that requires you to have sex with someone of the the sex.

Please show the statutes and the states where these laws have been passed.

Please show me any law or reason that disqualifies a Homosexual or Transsexuals from being a teacher.

Both are a contract. Yet do not always carry the same results. Over 50% of the nation disagree with you, they feel that Gays have the same rights to be married as a straight couple. Now please post a link to provide insight to the extremists view that you alluded to.

You need to stop hiding behind the Constitution; that's not what this discussion is about -- although you want it to be about the Constitution and only the Constitution.

Young men who embrace the homosexual lifestyle end up degenerates; that's what this conversation is about.

You want us to believe all gays have been in monogamous relationships lasting 10 years or more and there are even some stupid straights who believe this claptrap, but the core truth of the matter is the gay lifestyle is a celebration of degeneracy, not the 10 dollar words you like to throw around describing who you are and what you do.

Homosexual sex leads to degeneracy, nothing else explains the excesses we see in your lifestyle, nothing else explains the proliferation of erect penises in all your "pride" parades and literature.

You want us to believe anal sex is as sacred and holy as the act of procreation but the jury is in on that -- anal sex is a morbidly unhealthy practice that leads to disease, anal dysfunction and virtually every degenerate sex act on the books, including, "pee play", "rimming", "fisting", public worship of the erect penis, etc.

The jury is in, as I say.

Your horseshit has been revealed for what it is -- bullshit.

lol, 50% of the nation didn't even care enough to give an opinion. What makes you think everyone participated in your stupid survey. The only way to find this out is to explain all the attached B.S. that goes along with your rediculous outcry to be part of a normal society.

Now as you can plainly see, the law and the US Constitution are what the discussion is about. Now due tell me why pagans do not have the same rights as friggin fundies do.

To the gay people in this topix forum, you are acting like the cildren in a school yard, teasing and taunting everyone. Just girlyboy up, you are not what society was meant to be period ..
We don't care if you want to be odd, just don't push your lifestyle on us, if you want to start your own Gay pride schools go for it but don't ask the public who oppose it support it. Do like private institutions do to promote their way of thinking, use your own money to support your lifestlye.

Polls in 2012

An April 2012 poll conducted by Pew Research Center showed support for same-sex marriage at 47%, while opposition reached an all-time low of 43%.[14]

A March 2012 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 52% of Americans supported allowing same-sex couples to legally marry, while 44% were opposed.[15]

A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted from February 29 - March 3, 2012 found that 49% of American adults supported allowing same-sex couples to legally marry, with 40% opposed.[16]

Bruno its you fundie freaks like Professor Fundie that act like children. The gay people of this nation are entitled to the same rights and privileges as straight people, no more no less, just equal. No one is making you marry another man, no one is making you have sex with another man. No laws will be or have been passed that require you to do so. No one is going to make your Priest/Reverend or Pastor preform a gay wedding. They have that choice and many have already stated they will preform them
No one is making you change yer bible. No one is forcing you to be a homosexual, no one.
