Please, point out the religion of a child missing one or more of the only two they ever get.

Even better, please specify what was 'over-simplified blanketing generalizations'.

This will be good.

These are the same folks who Willard Mitt Romney and Paul D. Ryan support back and forth.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer about his "values-based" organization's opposition to the Southern Poverty Law Center's diversity-promoting, anti-bullying "Mix It Up at Lunch Day" initiative.

Director of Issues Analysis," was content to spend their time together calling homosexuality "toxic," and comparing it to "poisoned Halloween candy."

Around the time he began defending his claims that Hitler surrounded himself with homosexual Stormtroopers, Costello decided she had had about as much as she was going to stomach. His remarks about homosexuality being a health risk finally pushed her to terminate their interview.

Not surprisingly, the Southern Poverty Law Center designated the American Family Association a hate group.

Same sex marriage is gender segregation. I believe in the perfect diversity of marriage one man and one woman; perfect affirmative action. I oppose gender segregation marriage because diversity is the nature of marriage.
No, it's not you stupid turd! People would still be free to marry someone of the opposite sex if gay marriage were legal.

Same sex marriage is bad for homosexuals. Every gay was born of male/female union.
You homophobes say "taxpayer" as if gay people don't pay taxes.

Oy 'idiot' again you are so boring. Maybe I wear a tutu go by "Miss Mikey" and am very gay as you continually insinuate.

Doesn't make me an idiot but it does expose you as the homophobe you are.

Glad I could help tough guy.

I would hope she kicked him off the show because his remarks were untrue, bigoted, slanderous and constituted hate speech.

I don't believe she ended the interview because she simply didn't agree with him. Consequently, I wouldn't think she would end an interview with a homosexual guest unless he/she were making untrue, bigoted, slanderous statements, as Bryan Fischer was making.

There is a huge difference between the two. I think she was well within her rights as the host to end the interview because it was merely being used as a forum to get air time for nothing more than hate filled rhetoric.

I was there in the 70's. It was a relatively obscure disease until it spread like wildfire through the gays, when it gained widespread notice.Guess what was causing its prolific spread ?# guesses and the first 2 don't count count.

Hmmm... a lot of the more "utopian" science fiction makes the assumption that in the future, people actually WILL have grown up enough that unisex barracks will be the norm. What stands in the way is things like Christianity and other patriarchal throwbacks to primitive times when women were a man's property, and rape was just a way to "prove" that you were the better man by spoiling another man's property.
I do NOT want to imply that ALL xians feel this way, nor that it is in any way actually taught as part of any particular church, but this is EXACTLY what is behind the whole concept of a woman "asking for it" if she got raped.
This CAN be changed. But the only way for that to happen is for everybody to teach their young children right from the beginning that ALL people deserve respect, regardless of skin tone, orientation, gender, religion, nationality, income, etc, etc, etc. People need to learn that they can feel good about themselves without having to put someone else down.
Life is not a zero sum game, if we cooperate, we can ALL win.
This has nothing to do with religion, so come up with a rational argument.
