Read more at http://www.topix.com/forum/news/gay/TH6FC2NTH ... 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.

You ask, "who said I wanted you cured"?
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.
I was hardly speaking of you.

It is clear you deserve your condition.

It is clear that homosexuality is a evolutionary mating behavior defect.

It is clear that scientists are stuck unable to find a legitimate purpose for homosexuality.

It is clear that they expect to confirm a epi-marker mistake as the cause.

It is clear that once a cause is determined, most homosexuals will seek a cure, or prevention at the least.

It is clear you keep dumbing down on a lie because you have nothing else.

Wrong again Jizzy! It's about a judge overturning California's ban on same sex marriage AND polygamy. After almost three years, you should know that.

Just what don't you understand about prop 8? It says "marriage is a man and a woman". Does it say men and women? Think hard. Ask for help.

Yes that is true, but did he also come to abolish the laws? That also is in the Bible, I am a Christian. Just to help you, this is what Jesus said:“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."

Bill, what don't you understand about prop 8? It forbids polygamy as surely as it forbids same sex marriage.

It says in California, "marriage is a man and a woman". Does it say "men and women" Old SniffButts Billy? Think hard. Sound it out. Ask for help. Remember! There are no dumb posts. Only dopes like you.

<quoted text>Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage
That is the topic. Show me where it says anything about polygamy.
You can not miss it, look at the top of the page.
Supreme Court did not rule Tuesday on Proposition 8, the 2008 California initiative that banned same-sex marriage in the state, but signaled that the decision will come Wednesday.
The justices also did not issue their decision on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which bars gay and lesbian married couples from receiving the same federal benefits as opposite-sex spouses. They indicated, however, that the decision in that case also will come Wednesday, saying all remaining opinions from the court's annual term would be issued then.
http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Rulings...
Proposition 8 was a ballot initiative, and a California state constitutional amendment, passed in the November 2008 elections, which says that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." The proposition overturned the California Supreme Court's ruling — from the same year — that same-sex couples "have a constitutional right to marry." However, Prop 8 didn't affect the state's domestic partnerships or same sex marriages performed before November 5, 2008. Nonetheless, the passage of Prop 8 — the same day the first African American president was elected — unleashed protests, demonstrations and numerous lawsuits challenging the proposition's validity. United States District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, who is openly gay, overturned Proposition 8 on August 4, 2010 in the case Perry v. Schwarzenegger, ruling that it violated both the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the United States Constitution. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals continued the stay, keeping Walker's ruling "on hold pending appeal." On February 7, 2012, in a 2–1 decision, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel affirmed Walker's decision declaring the Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional.

Silly idea. Makes as much sense as saying Prop 8 prohibits people from marrying palm trees. Try again.
