What a wonderful day I've had!
I spent most of the morning and afternoon at Knoxville's Pride Celebration.
I'm burnt to a crisp and worn out. But I had a great time.
Twenty-five years ago I was at Knoxville's first Pride Celebration. There were about 100 of us there. We were surrounded by preachers with bullhorns and people wearing full body protection suits (so that they wouldn't catch AIDS--LOL!)
Today there were four--count them FOUR--protester. They were faced with well over 15,000 gays, lesbians, etc. and our supporters.
We ended our parade at the World's Fair Park, where we had a football size field full of tents, booths, and stages.
The parade started at noon. The celebration goes until 10:30pm. But I'm too old to stay out in that blazing heat for ten and a half hours.
THIS is why same-sex marriage and other equal rights for the LGBT community will soon extend throughout the country.
Look at the changes that have been made over the past 25 years in a little town in TN--the buckle of the Bible-belt.
Shooooo.... I'm tired! Gonna crank up the air and bask in my memories of today's events!
"Pride celebration"? The lion king? Was Simba there?

That's the one. I am not oriented that way and don't like when people try to tell me that the only acceptable way to live is to follow that lifestyle. If I tried, it would destroy the lives of others because it would not work. Then people would be telling me I was wrong to try to live a hetero lifestyle when I knew it was a lie. So no matter what I do or how I live, I am wrong in the view of some.

So I stay true to who I am. I treat others well. I respect people who deserve respect. I place importance on friends and family and on doing what I can to make a positive difference in the world.

Sweetheart...to be honest with you, most of us don't share your mental illness, therefore we don't share your reality!
You seem to be the one denying reality daily, it won't change it!
Ah, different realities huh?

Speaking of mental illnesses...

Just trying to relate the pics to your claim of marriage and family.

Hope to God the kids weren't there. I wouldn't submit my wife to that behavior.

Stating facts is attacking you.

Think about it for a moment this time, before you respond.

You are the one with the vastly different reality from others. The rest of us don't need to carry around letters stating our sanity...that we "lied to get". Would you like to share with us what really caused your psychotic break from reality? Was it the affair or the Church not bowing down to the way you thought it should be run?

You spend what 8 hours a day or more here for years already? Bullying gay people day in and day out, telling them what "real marriage" is. Do you really think you will change any ones mind? You have been married for 37 years? What does your poor wife do while you sit here and bully gay people? Do you think it is healthy for your relationship?

You have no business and certainly no qualifications to tell others what marriage is or should be!

Consider spending more time on your own life, instead of spending so much time concerning yourself with what others are doing with their lives. Enough is enough.

I didn't tell anyone the qualifications of marriage, I simply stated the scientific basis.

Do you have a letter?

Smile.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Passť sloganeering fits your description of insanity to a tee. It still hasn't caused your kind to be accepted, only tolerated or feared under the thread of "hate crimes".

You'll never be accepted except by the lowest common denominator, and insanity is your inability to admit to reality.

Thank me.
