<quoted text>Frank I have written letters to both my state and federal reps, asking that they put full force behind same sex marriage. If you truly want polygamy to be legal, do the same
Aw, that's nice. Would you write one for polygamy too Jiz?

I don't want to write letters. I simply want to discuss marriage equality without fear, ridicule or censorship.

<quoted text>Feel free todo so. I am not stopping you. However the topic is not marriage equality.
Prop 8 discriminates against polygamy the same as it does against same sex marriage. You know, EQUALLY. The judge's decision is as relevant to polygamy as it is to same sex marriage.

Don't hog all the relevance. Don't hog all the victimhood.

No. I want to discuss it. On this discussion forum. Without your fear, your insults, your ridicule, your censorship or your anger.

I am a gay man. I have been gay since I was a child--meaning that I have been attracted to people of my gender for as long as I can remember.
To want me to be "cured" means that you do not accept who I am. People like me offend you. And you believe the world would be a better place without people like me.
Various "scientists" around the world in the early 20th century believed they could improve various races by deceasing certain aspects they believed to be degenerate. They did this through forced abortions, forced pregnancies, segregation, compulsory sterilization, and genocide.
THIS is what you're talking about with regards to gay people. And THIS is what makes you a MONSTER in every sense of the world!
Your so-called Christian beliefs won't allow you to say outright that you want us killed. But you want us to disappear.
Asking me what would be lost if my homosexuality were to be cured is like asking a black person, "What would be lost if we changed your skin color to suit us?"
We are not disordered. Scientists have made that abundantly clear.
We do not need to be culled from the herd. We do not need to be cured. We do not need to be eliminated from the planet.
The only thing I appreciate about your post is your honesty. Everyone now knows where you stand.
Wanting someone cured means you don't accept them. I'm a monster mutation. I've accepted that just fine. But if I could be 'cured'? Absolutely.

VV you go from one stupid ridiculous statement to another.

And who said I wanted you cured?

Then you compare me to experiments vs a cure, preformed against the will of the victim? That is simply more of your gay troll slander.

I ask you for the hundredth time, why are tactics like that necessary for a legitimate cause????

Additionally, asking someone what the consequences of a cure would be, can hardly be equated to racism.

I ask you again, what would be lost? What would be gained?

As to your continued slander about what I said, I've posted what I said, until you prove otherwise, the one thing we know is that you are a liar.

When my posts disappear, it means Jizzy is up to his dirty tricks again.

Jizzy cannot win an argument fairly. So he cheats, but that is not winning, that is losing.

The racial inequalities that have taken place since the beginning of our nation wouldn't seal the "judgment of America"?
The buying and selling of blacks; the torture, the beatings, the tearing apart of families; none of these things would seal the "judgment of America"?
The fact that we practice capital punishment in this nation doesn't seal the "judgment of America"?
Legalized abortion doesn't seal the "judgment of America"?
You think that a man who finds another man attractive, or a woman who finds another woman attractive; you think that same-sex attraction is what is ultimately going to seal the "judgment of America"?!?
You have a VERY twisted perspective...
Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the passage this verse is found in;

Leviticus 18:24 (NASB)
'Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.

It is not any one thing, but it is a number of things that culminate in the context of this verse.

Like it or not, that's what it says.

No, I'm fully capable of understanding English. That's why I told you to buy a dictionary and look up the word "mating". You're still using it incorrectly.
<quoted text>
No anger here you old coot. Clearly you just don't like being proven wrong. Over and over and over, thus you perceive it as anger.
<quoted text>
Cleary you are mistaken. I understand mating and mating behavior very well. I've been accomplishing both for over twenty years now.
But here, clearly YOU don't understand all the meanings of mating, and are also completely illiterate as to how to employ a dictionary. Let me help you out. As a verb (that's how you're employing it)here are several definitions of mating. Here are the primary two:
verb (used with object)
* to join as a mate or as mates.
NOPE, no procreation required KiMare.
* to match or marry.
NOPE, no procreation required KiMare.
<quoted text>
You don't understand ANYTHING about homosexuals. This is evident in your posts.
<quoted text>
Um, clearly I'm not an animated character. Have another drink dear. Oh, and just fyi, lab coats are not dresses. Well, at least they aren't anywhere other than in your feeble mind.
Aside from your denials,

mat·ing (mtng)

Why are you so angry? It makes you dumb.

Hey plebe, I noticed that you didn't provide what was asked for. Was that because of cowardice or inability?
Here, let me ask you again, "please present the room with the state or federal documentation that establishes your "constraint".
We're all still waiting dear. Surely you must have such an important document already stored in your "favorites". Can't wait to see it.
What an idiot thing to 'wait' for.

I stated a scientific fact. Because the law doesn't acknowledge it, it is not valid?

It is a scientific fact that you are an idiot. There is no 'federal documentation', but we all know it is true.

I'm on here protecting marriage and family from an impostor relationship by pointing out the conflict with reality of how ss couples fail to equate.
You are consistently threatened by the truth.
Untrue. You are consistently threatened by the fact that gay people exist and have always existed as part of nature and will always exist. You just don't like people who are different than yourself and don't know how to process that. So you log on here and make the same statements over and over again. You cannot change what is. And gay marriage is not a threat to straight marriage. Seems like the biggest threat to marriage comes from within the marriage itself not from what random strangers do with their lives.

YOU DO! When you ask about the consequences of a "cure" to homosexuality, you are assuming that homosexuality is a disorder that should be "cured".

Show me a legitimate scientist who believes that homosexuality is a disorder. Show me one legitimate scientist or peer supported group that is working to "cure" homosexuality.

"Curing" my homosexuality--the very discussion of it--is heinous. I won't dignify your question with a response.

I enjoy my sexual orientation. I won't be subjected to experiments to "cure" something that IS NO LONGER CONSIDERED AN ILLNESS by any legitimate scientist, medical or mental health professional.

I am not disordered. I have no illness related to my orientation.

The only people who seem to want a "cure" are IGNORANT religious zealots.

You can try to backpedal all you want. But NO ONE in this forum doubts for one second your true feelings about gays.

You wish for us to disappear from the planet via a "cure". You ARE a monster!

If you want to "cure" yourself, then have at it.

Like I said jump on your soap box and let it rip. Its not like any one will hear you, or read your moronic posts, but hey don't let that slow you up.
I have been discussing it. You respond with nonsense. You delete my posts. Simply because you cannot rebut my arguments.

You are hearing me and responding to each and every one my "moronic" posts. Yet you say no one will.

You are getting very angry about my "moronic" posts. You prissily lecture me about calling people names but you do it in every post.

OK Your turn Jiz!

Which is why we are at risk facing the scourge of barbaric Islamic tyranny. You know, like the marriages in Pakistan where the per-capita viewing of porn by Muslim husbands is the highest in the world.

But please, because it is desecrated by unfaithfulness, I should just step aside?
