I"m just surprised at the press the Sun News is giving this event, I don't think there has been any event before this with at least 3 different stories in two days.

You have got to be kidding me. Are we living in the Dark Ages? "I will stick with God?" Come on. I have tons of gay friends, colleagues, co-workers, etc. The sky will not fall if they have the equal right to marriage. It will not ruin your marriage, ruin "family values," or any thing else. Please. Open your mind, open your heart. The Sun-News bumped up a notch in respectability by actually covering this. Thank you for covering an important event in our community.

Very nicely put. I have gay family members and very good friends as well. I love them with all my heart and would not change them if I could. They are who they are and they are awesome!

I used to live in Alabama in the 70's for a while..
They used to say the same thing.. but they farmed out a bit.
For the word "gays" they also said
Sp9c - Ni76er - Jew (yes common words in that time in Alabama)
Trust me a I heard it all in that time..
So, I will ask you the same thing I ask those guys in Alabama than
What exactly worries you about them?
What have they done to you?
well?

I see the religious right has come out in force with their "hate speech" once again. Doesn't seem very "Christian" to me.

When I am confused I pray to God through his Son our Lord and savior Jesus Christ to guide me in the right direction and when I sin I ask God for forgiveness. I am not perfect but I do know what God is asking of me, and I do the best I can everyday. I hope the Gay people in our community and in the world will one day look to God for his help and guidence.. I will contiue to pray for all because God is loving and thats what God wants!.. God bless you all.

What the heck happened to you in your life to cause such hatred? Why is it such a big deal what SOMEONE ELSE does in their own private life - especially when it has no affect on your life, doesn't hurt anyone, and is simply no one else's business? Personally, I'm disgusted at the thought of elderly persons having sex with each other - but i'm not going to sit here and rant and rave making hateful comments about it. Ok, that was a little bit of sarcasm, but hopefully someone gets the "picture".

Happy Father's Day to all men who have kids - gay or not.

<quoted text>Exactly. There are so many other newsworthy events yet they waste paper on this garbage. I would like to read about what is going on in the world. I do not care about rainbow colored flags, that Miguel is out of the closet, or who is the reigning drag queen.
LC Sun-News does not care about educating the public. My impression of the LC Sun-News staff is that they are a bunch of dope smoking gay hippies who do not care about anything other than their own interests. They should go work in a commune somewhere far far away.

Tulip's (two lips) Climax Cocoa Cookies? What kind of name of cookie is that? Gays wonder why they are sterotyped as perverts, but then they dispay a lot of risque behaviors. If you (gays) want society to treat you with respect and not stereotype your people, don't always bring risque behaviors (perversions) into events where you are trying to educate the public. Have events that display classy behaviors....not a bunch of joking around that implies you all are perverts.

I am complaining about the Sun-News.

I do not hate gays. I disagree with their lifestyle, but I do not hate them. I never said that I do hate gays. Actually I feel sorry for them and I am not being sarcastic when I say that.

Then take your "complaint" to them rather then looping them in with a parade that was nothing but happiness. You are free to disagree with anyone's lifestyle, you are in America and have been afforded that right. I feel sorry for people like you that are filled with so much anger toward folks that you more then likely don't know and haven't done anything to deserve it. I'm not going to keep arguing with you or anyone else on this topic as it is useless. You feel the way you do for whatever reason, and i'm merely exercising my right to tell you I disagree with you.

I don't have a problem with homosexuals, they've never done anything to me or anyone I know to cause me to feel otherwise. Live your life the best you can, without hurting others.
