HOMOSEXUALITY is a immoral, inhuman, disgusting, DEVIANT behavior that is worse than any disease. Think for one minute what exactly it is HOMOSEXUALS do. Do you want that kind of people living near your family, making your salads at restaurants ???? HOMOSEXUALS are scr-wed up in the mind, very much like pedphiles, rapists and serial murderers are, then they act it out in life. Decent society has a responsibility to fight this war at every opportunity that ir rears it's ugly head, doing what is necessary to rid a moral population of this scurge. A group I am aware of vigiliantely avoids any monentery gain for ANYONE who supports HOMOSEXUALS, including politicans, States, any entities. Every chance they get they "encourage" businesses to rethink their employement of HOMOSEXUALS, they notify customers of who IS doing their food preparation and also telling neighborhoods, WHO exactly is living next to them. This DEVIANT behavior will be fought at every opportunity.

The pity homosexuals demand of normal people is wasted on them; besides, it could never approach their endless self-pity for having talked themselves into being homosexuals and deciding to continue living that way, using their crutch of having been born that way and are thus incapable of self-control. Their false sense of moral superiority in identifying as victims of their own choices deserves nothing more than scorn and political opposition, which they call "homophobia".

Just because Kay's husband likes to watch porno gay movies it doesn't makes him bisexual or gay!

It's highly unlikely that Kay knows her husband is gay!Most gay married men are very skilled when it comes to concealing their sexual orientation. Their wives and girlfriends are usually the last to know. Like most unsuspecting women who are in marriages or relationships with gay men, Kay probably had no inkling that she was a victim of same-sex infidelity.

They may face hurdles, but many laws are in place to protect them. For example. Florida Landlord Tenant Law make it clear that these couples cannot be discriminated against.

By reading this I learned a lot about what my landlord DOES (and unfortunatle does NOT) have to do. There is stuff in place to protect all tenants... not just gay ones. Knowledge is power!

Why is there so much hate? I thought florida was supposed to be more tolerant with all the influx.
