Welcome back Rock. Big D likes to use grandiose super hero....or villain talk....he probably wrote that as he sat in his Spider man underoos-Grandpa size, while his wife positioned a fan just right so his cape would fly...without the fan he has trouble getting his cape to fly sometimes.

And your point is? Let me guess... If we would just stop trying to get people to allow us to get married--if we would only be nice, quiet, invisible gays, then we wouldn't have to deal with the headaches. Is that right? You're saying that we bring all of this on ourselves. Correct?
Here's the difference... I'm guessing that this woman wasn't born with a nail in her head.
See, her situation has an obvious fix, doesn't it? Just pull the nail out of her forehead.
But being gay is not the same as having a nail in one's forehead.
We truly are happy people, until we come up against the likes of you. You believe and espouse that we are "broken" and in need of being "fixed". Your ignorance and anti-homosexual sentiment IS the nail in our forehead. And are deeply driven under our skin. You make it your life's work to attempt to turn as many people's minds toward the belief that gays do not belong in society.
The LGBT community has fought hard to pull your nail out of our forehead, but you keep driving yourselves deeper and deeper.
Our fight has not been in vain. Look at today's society. Every poll you look at shows a remarkable increase in support of the LGBT community and LGBT rights and protections.
You no longer represent mainstream America. At one time you did, but no more.
And THERE is the long winded nail in the Queen head...

There is no such thing as ss 'marriage'.

Smile.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

Put bluntly, if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

That never gets old, perhaps Big D, or VeeVee could address it.

Douglas Boyd and Joseph Santoro go S T U P I D.

Why is that?

Because they are not alert to the facts.

They are trying to con the good people of Glendora, California out of their voting rights.

Well, love, if you can't take it, you shouldn't dish it out.

As much as I despise anti-homosexual rhetoric, I'm still fascinated by people who spew it.

Where did they learn it? Why are they so vehement over something that just doesn't matter that much?

Straight people don't have to deal with gay issues. It's kind of like repeatedly listening to a talk show host who you despise and complaining over and over and over about how much you hate him or her.

If you don't like the channel, for God's sake, turn to another station.

If you don't want to have anything to do with gays and lesbians, stay out of our affairs--keep your distance.

Why do you make our lives your business? Why do you rail against the LGBT Community, while you continue to chase us?

Seem like you'd just give up and go home--keep your distance--have nothing to do with us.

But here you are--you and others--night after night, making the same tired, old comments, day in and day out.

We get it... You don't like us. Now put a period at the end of this chapter and move on with your lives.

And there's no such thing as a judgmental pastor.

However, you are very judgmental; so you can't be a pastor.

But you have been a pastor; so you can't be judgmental.

Yet you are both of these things.

Such a paradox...

My guess is that you're a judgmental person, who pretends to be a pastor.

Yeah... That's it...

nah...we've become inured to your prattling, and have come to expect it. there is no good argument FOR SSM, and we all know this. Since it is your side that wishes to change things, it's up to you to provide some compelling reason for this change, and you cannot produce any. It takes more than saying "we see no reason not to do it" to produce a compelling reason for this fraudulent fad to continue.
Is there a good argument for toasting bread? Is there a good argument for stained glass windows? Is there a good argument for Corvettes?

See, some things don't need a good argument.

Some people just happen to like toast. Others happen to stained glass. And still others really enjoy Corvettes.

And we have these things, simply because some people wanted them to exist.

We want to be married. That's reason enough. We don't have to prove anything to you. We owe you no explanation.

Funny. No one ever does, beyond dopey ad hominem insults or attempts at censorship by pulling the "off topic!" card.

But even funnier are the arguments against poly like Big D's marry your goat one. He truly doesn't realize he uses the same arguments against poly that he ridicules when used against SSM. Then he calls me dumb! Fun!

You're flailing like an armless man who can't swim, Brucie.

We didn't ask for your "pride" parades and your Folsom Street Fairs and your losers who cut out the rear of a nuns habit and roller skate down the street in broad daylight.

We didn't ask for your Shock Value Revue. You forced it on us and some of us have the balls to fight back.

I'm mocking you, Brucie, and there's not a thing you can do about it.

Even after hundreds of thousands of years of torturous evolution, the only "acceptance" you have is stolen from the Lowest Common Denominator via crooked politicians who'd sell their Momma for a nickel.

If you don't like it, why do you expose yourself to it? What is it that draws you to these events?

I don't like football. I could count on my hands the number of times I've been to a football game.

I don't care for charismatic, snake-handling churches. I've never been to one.

I don't like deer hunting. I've never been deer hunting in my life.

Are you beginning to see a trend here?

See, normal people who don't want to be exposed to certain things have the ability avoid being a part of them.

But you keep yammering on about how we shove things down your throats (you wish).

Be a grown-up. Either avoid those things that you don't want to be exposed to or stop whining. It's pretty simple.

Could be wrong, of course but I don't think even Simmons would be low enough to beg a crooked politician to legislate "acceptance" of the Caligula types.

We know there's rapists and murderers and child molesters out there too, Brucie. Do you see a trend here?
