Gays and blacks are on the same team.

It's shameful that such a comment on gay rights would cause such a distance between them.

You have two choices:

Vote *against* gay marriage and force this man to marry your daughter

.
Or
.
Vote *for* gay marriage in hopes he will marry another man and leave your daughter alone

Interesting how you memorized these cute little names for gay men.

But, I digress.

Hasn't that same sentiment been made public in the past about black folks? Funny how we never seem to learn from history.

If this is what you believe feel free to try to drum up support for it so that we can show the world what you feel. you might succeed. But i highly doubt it.

Can you speak and write English correctly so it's understandable ??? If not your handle is certainly appropriate.

Gay people don't all think alike, either. But many leaders have pointed out that nobody can be equal as long as somebody is not equal. So if we are true to our goal of equality under law, we must oppose any oppression anywhere any time.

Anything else is self-centered hypocrisy.
