Sounds like what you say about pretty much everyone who doesn't agree with your dogma, including well regarded academics and scientists.
How is living life with blinders?
There are certain beliefs that we all have--dogmas, as you refer to them.

You believe that these dogmas are blinders--that they only allow us to see things in a specific way.

I would agree with you up to a point.

I know that I am pretty open minded. I am openly accepting of many different kinds of people and their ideas. I am not threatened by differing views.

However, when your dogma includes a belief that a small, but key aspect of my character (i.e.: homosexuality) is a sin or a sign of brokenness; that it is unnatural and an abomination, then I will not entertain these beliefs as rational or scientifically based.

There is a limit to being open minded. That's human nature.

For example, I am not open minded about walking into a cage with a lion. I'm no t open minded about handling snakes. I'm not open minded about drinking poisons.

And I'm certainly not open minded about anyone's assertion that being gay is unnatural.

I'd guess he was trying to understand your claim that ss couples are the same as marriage.
The reality is, we are not interested in that kind of behavior, and we certainly wouldn't take our children.
See the difference?
Smirk.
Your guess would be wrong. His comments had nothing to do with same-sex marriage. They had to do with his ridiculous assumption that the LGBT community "corrupts" children. They had to do with his, personal repulsion to gay-themed events.

You guys complain about these events and ideas, but they are easily avoidable.

Shut up your whining about them, stop watching them; stop making them a part of your lives, and you won't have to worry about being offended.

Not since the holocaust have we seen children used so sinisterly. You throw them under the bus so often, they might as well be referred to as your own, personal speed-bumps.

Children are not damaged by LGBT issues.

Stop abusing children with your twisted ideas and beliefs.

Not quite....you want the state to declare a same sex relationship marriage. As an individual you can legally marry. No one is stopping you from standing with another man, on front of a rabbi, minister, priest, priestess, etc., and get married.
Simply because u want to, is not reason enough. If it were, anyone could get married legally, regardless of any state requirements, or prohibitions.
In this country we are free to pursue our desires as long as do not break any laws. It isn't against the law to be homosexual. It isn't against the law to engage in homosexual activity. It isn't against the law to pair up with someone of the same gender.

The only law that we are attempting to break, is one that we believe is unjustifiable. We believe it prohibits us from enjoying certain rights and protections that other straight couples enjoy by way of marriage.

We have a right to question that law--to put it before the court and citizens of the country. And that's what we're doing.

If we don't like the answer we get, then we are free to continue to fight for these rights and protections.

We believe that we have a legitimate argument--many heterosexuals agree with us.

As I've said many times before, it's only a matter of time.

You cannot legally stand in our way. You cannot keep us from pursuing what we believe we should have.

You have the right to complain and cry all you want. But we all know where that gets you--nowhere.

It is funny, I would let my children be around gay people, but would never let them be around you.

I wouldn’t want them subverted by your ignorance

I don’t mind gay people adopting, but you should not be allowed to

Yes. I'm intolerant of the willfully ignorant, like you. Since when is it a badge of honor to hold a point of view that is counter to scientific facts? Your point of view SHOULD be held up to ridicule because it is based on fear and stupidity.

I live next door to a gay couple and they are excellent neighbors, just way too anal. God forbid my gardener blows a leaf into their yard! We have BBQs and they tell me gay jokes. They already heard all mine.
Here's a good one-

-Queers. HAR!HAR!HAR! Good one.

Ooops, silly me. You have slogans too. And for a budding zit grrrrl, you use them so WELL!

Ever heard of "global warming", zit grrrrl? Scientists nowadays are bought and sold like government cheese. And the CDC was infiltrated by homosexists years and years ago. But thanks for playing.
