Why I just knew that a disgusting vile lib was following me around and "judging" my posts and low and behold, I was correct.

BTW he is NO republican and he kept his ugly secret from the voters, typical of your kind.

"Fleck, who attended Christian schools and graduated from Liberty University, founded by evangelical leader Jerry Falwell, said he spent years in therapy trying to reconcile his homosexuality with his faith."

All those years in therapy and he's still a republican. No much of a surprise from someone who was dim-witted enough to attend Liberty "University."

Really? So, if he kept quiet about it, living his life unhappy and lying, to himself and his wife, that would have been better for you? Typical teabagger, only wants things whitewashed on the cover. Never mind about what is really going on inside.

What POSSIBLE difference does what he does behind closed doors make to his job? Could you please explain to us? Does what YOU and YOUR hubby do in your strange private customs makes ANY dent in your day to day public life, does it?

Typical of YOUR kind, no one but a laughable dimwit would pretend this is about anything but REPUBLICANS, one of which HE IS. Christ. Grow the hell up.

How can he "follow you around" if he made the first post on this thread?
On top of that, who would even want to "follow you around"?

Geeeez ... what an a-hole!
Just put "hetero" instead of "gay" and you're argument is null and void.
It's amazing how people like you tend to be attracted to this forum. What's wrong ... nobody else to relate to? Have any friends? Get out much?
You have my sympathies, but if you died tomorrow, I couldn't give a rat's ass.

If she weren't snooping around gay sites morning noon and night, NO one would be bothering her with responses. In fact, as soon as she logs off I forget she is alive.

<quoted text>No, what is happy for you gays is when gays get suicide and/or die from AIDS. So, that is what you want for him. We all know that the definition of happiness for gays is suicidea and AIDS, because that is the result. Trust me, all gayas admit that the life he lives with wife and kids is a far cry better than what you offer.
Your kind of gay even demeans ex-gay, who tell you they are happy, gay free and even Christians with either a few temptations or are gay free. You claim that the closet gay and ex-gay would be better off and happy if they choice to be openly gay, which means at risk for AIDS and suicidal.
Look at the evidence, and try to spin a new tale. Your old tale is obviously stuck between your tails.
Quack quack quack. He still has admitted he is gay. All your verbose blather won't change that one dot. One more for our side and there is nothing you can do about it, NOTHING.

Why make up this ridiculous stuff? No one believes it, or you, and obviously you know what but keep doing it. Do you really need attention from gay folks THAT much?

Silly troll.

You know, after all this time, I never thought of that, why they DEMAND attention from the gays. What possible need does that fill for those tools?

The worst things done to gay people are done by closeted gays. Total homophobia, by abusing others, demanding attention and showing hatred,(even on a topix thread) it's a way of reinforcing their denial of who they really are. Ultimately, I think, you can blame religious repression and organized sports for the ignorant perception of the masculine norm.
