Yes, we have science and it does not refute the creation story, it does however refute your gay gene and born gay myth. We view gays as a metaphor for failed parenting, not actual separate creations.

At least try to hide your location so it isn't so obvious that you're someone else.

I agree we need to turn those away from welfare as a career, but there was no indication of anyone here saying they were on welfare or without a job. Why are you using it as an insult and yet you support the great Obama? Since welfare has been the great obama's selling pitch for votes. And his stimulus plans were for jobs overseas. Or were you asking him to move out of the country?

I didn't search for this topix specifically, it kind of jumped out at me.
Quit trying to dodge responsiblity. It wouldn't "jump out" at you if you didn't care.

What I read seemed to be important enough to see how the gay cult wanted to revise the wording of our Constitution which would affect my rights.
You wouldn't think it's important if you didn't care.
And you can't come up with a single way gay marriage would affect your rights. You are just looking for an excuse.
Tata wrote:
I feel the demands of gay people will affect the way government conducts various tax laws that have been written and put into place for a normal and moral society.
You homophobes always talk about taxes as if gay people don't pay them.
Tata wrote:
There is NOTHING preventing any citiizen from marring. You say you are not gay, so why did you search the internet for a place to talk about gay people?? either you are hetero and want to protect you right to uphold the Constitution as it reads or you are gay and want to change its meaning. We all have the same rights
I'm not lying and saying I don't think the issue is important, like you are.
And, I don't have the same rights a man does, I can't marry a woman. A man doesn't have the same rights I do, he can't marry a man. So, you are lying, we don't all have the same rights.

Maybe because you liberals refuse to listen to reason. Your heads are barried deep in the sand. Where is it written that homos can't marry ??
All you homophobes have are word games. No real arguments.

Your explanation of how Adam and Eve were created is typical of an Athiest way of thinking, too bad the majority of Americans in this country agree with how this country was built on a religious platform, regardless of what you say or think. I know your purpose in life is to tear that platform down but my purpose is to keekp it alive.
There will never be a shortage of dumb people like you, I fear. Why can't you keep your Bronze Age beliefs to yourselves? Think it's a "sin" to have gay sex? Don't have any. Then fk off and mind your own business.

And you are lying. Gay people don't teach that being gay is an alternative. You are either gay, or you're not.
By 9 I knew I was attracted to boys in a way I wasn't attracted to girls. If someone had told me I could be a lesbian, it wouldn't have done a damn thing. I don't think anything short of hooking my privates up to a car battery and giving me a shock every time I had a (sexual) thought or feeling about a boy could have changed me. And it would more likely have just resulted in scar tissue and a spent battery. I assume it's the same way for gay people, except that the feelings are for the same sex.

and that they could be gay and it is cool. Many kids have come home to mom and said I wanna be a gay, can I be a gay.
You just made that up.

It is called indoctrination and child abuse. Yes, the right way is when mom and ad tell kids "Some people are sick and choose to be gay, you should not pick on them and call them names, because they have mental issues. We are to love them and tell them that God wants them to stop sinning."
No, it's not a good idea for parents to lie like that.

Yes. According to the parental instruction manual:

This is your idea of a "parental instruction manual"?
"Suppose a man has a stubborn, rebellious son who will not obey his father or mother, even though they discipline him. In such cases, the father and mother must take the son before the leaders of the town. They must declare:'This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious and refuses to obey. He is a worthless drunkard.' Then all the men of the town must stone him to death. In this way, you will cleanse this evil from among you, and all Israel will hear about it and be afraid." (Deuteronomy 21:18-21 NLT)

They're angry because they made a mess and apparently we didn't "clean it up fast enough", so they, the people who caused the mess, should inherit it again.

You do care, or you wouldn't be here you fool.
I don't care if someone is gay. Not about the issue at hand here, tard. I can see where you wouldn't be able to get that message as you've displayed quite a bit of ignorance in here, Tater.

As far as my education is concerned, wanna compare curricula vitae?
