Some gay-rights foes claim they now are bullied

Jun 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Contra Costa Times

In this Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009 file picture, New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, right, speaks during a debate over same-sex marriage in the New York state Senate at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Diaz complained in May 2011 that he's received death threats because he opposes legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.

This is so true. In a recent LC Sun story on here, I counted the responses from people claiming to be gay and the responses of those opposing the gay lifestyle. 100% of the people advocating the gay lifestyle and claiming to be gay, called those that did not agree with them names, called the person claiming to be a white male a racist term (trailer trash), or made other derogatory remarks. Less that half of those opposed to the gay lifestyle made a derogatory remark.
The reason why people don't like gays is because of how they treat people. This group that preaches tolerance is intolerant as hell. They are militants that only seek to destroy those that don't share the same opinion. 100% is an incredible number. They have a long way to go before their cause can succeed because they are shooting themselves in the foot by being so mean.
Oh Charles, someone else was already crucified on a cross. Climb down and seek some other form of attention.

So, you don't have an answer to his question, is that it?
You seem to enjoy blabbering on endlessly without making a point, here's your chance to tell your side...go for it!
How would gay marriage affect your life?
This isn't about me, so don't try to make it about me.

As I've already pointed out, the answers to your questions are a mouse click away.

First of all, no one wants you. Second of all, it's because you are mentally ill. Third of all, please surrender to the authorities immediately, as you are an illegal alien involved in known criminal activity.

First of all, no one is talking, they are POSTING. Second, replying to your own posts under a different user name is transparently idiotic! Don't you have a cross to go burn somewhere?

Unfortunately racists, bigots and homophobes will always be with us as long as there is a right-wing. They have to have someone to look down on.

REP. ALLEN WEST FIRES INTERN FOR PRO-GAY RESPONSE TO TRACY MORGAN RANT

Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has reportedly fired an intern for retweeting a message critical of comedian Tracy Morgan's recent homophobic rant.

A member of the audience who attended Morgan's stand-up routine in Tennessee recalled on Facebook that the comedian said that if his son came out to him then "he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death."

A member of the band Scissor Sisters responded with a message on Twitter.

"Dear Tracy Morgan's son: if you are gay, you can TOTALLY come live with me. We'll read James Baldwin & watch Paris is Burning. xxANA," Ana Matronic wrote.

After someone on Allen's staff retweeted Matronic's message, the congressman's office quickly deleted the retweet.

"Very sorry for the unauthorized RT. We were not hacked, an intern made an error and it has been corrected. Apologies to all!" West's office wrote in a subsequent tweet.

That apology now also appears to have been deleted.

Roll Call reported Monday that the intern responsible for the retweet has since been fired. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/06/13/rep-all...

Tolerance of intolerance is still intolerance. Trying to deny to others the rights granted to the majority is clearly intolerance, while working for equal rights is the struggle for tolerance.

Gay marriage affects me because it just reminds me of how many hunks are out there who won't give me the time of day. I'm a divorcee who's looking to remarry because my husband ran off with some 18 year old bimbo with bleached hair and fake boobs. Every time I see a handsome stud with another dude it depresses me because that's one less guy for me to try and reel in. I think gays should do their business in private.
I see, so gay people shouldn't be allowed to get married because you can't get laid?

I can get laid any night of the week if I go out in a mini skirt, see through blouse and high heels. I am looking for a man who is willing to make a commitment or at least to spend the night. Sex is a wonderful thing especially if it's the old fashioned, missionary kind. But there's more to life than sex and I need a good man who can help me around the house.
