it looks as though the Harvey Milk strategy worked like a charm.
just come out.
...and BAMM>>>>>>
down go the bigots~!
The Harvey Milk strategy was to:
A) Hide your orientation, until it cannot make a difference, such as the SCOTUS Justices did.
B) Act the bombastic fool and have no moral fiber.
C) Align the sexually aberrant, to form a new, deviant party, composed of malcontents, because there such a large number of you, er, them.
D) Act as if you know everything, even though your lack of education gives itself away.

I believe in God but I'm not a bible thumper. Think about it. Unless you are gay does it make sense for a man to have sexual relations with another man. And same for women? It's an abomination! I'm not the type of person you are going to see walking down the side of the road with a sign that has some bigoted statement on it, but seriously! Marriage is a relationship between a man a woman and God, that is what it is. Holy matramony! It says in the bible a man shall not lye with another man! You don't have to be religious to know that! Their going to be pushing to have same sex marriage in every state soon, and its not right! Marriage is different than just a regular relationship keep it at that if you can't convert to heterosexuality!

I guess the main question here is: is marriage a civil right or a constitutionally protected religious freedom. Those against gay marriage will argue it is the latter. Even though everything about marriage proves its a civil issue. Sure you can get married in a church but you can also get married in a courthouse, on a beach, in a park, hotel, or even a bar. They argue marriage is a religious ceremony, but marriages are ended in court with lawyers. You get a marriage license from the government not the church. And don't forget those final words " by the power vested in me by the state of _______". Last but not least you can get married by a priest but also by a judge, mayor, governor, county clerk. Etc

unfortunatley, historical record, doesnt bear out your assesment of Harvey Milk.

in one of his most famous speeches from 1978(yes rock, its on tape)

he implores all gays, coast to coast to come out??

that kinda blows a hole in what you just wrote.

sorry to let you down, what you know is wrong.

just the fact that you think that, proves your bigotry...
why else would you say something like that...
but then again, you got your a&&es whooped this week in court(like we KNEW ya would)
so it has been tough and frustrating for you..
to have people you dont like make headway on their civil rights?
too bad bigot....time to give up your infantile attitudes about people who arnt like you, and join the real world...
you know??? the one you think is going to hell....
But, just to end this on the proper notes...I say this (that America is a lost cause) because I am smarter than you, and see what is happening. And, the Harvey Milk strategy was to disappear quickly, just like he did. Your hero didn't last long, did he? Also, did the SCOTUS actauuly render a decision? NO, Ass-puppet, they didn't, ergo, no one got their asses whooped, now, did they ? Don't let the big words and perfectly composed sentences confuse you. Now, I am done with your moronic ass.

Then, I suppose that we need to do away with "Men" and "Women' on the outside of bathrooms. A man can go into the "Mens Room", why can't a woman? And why can't a man go into the "Womens Room"? This is plainly unfair to everyone. What you call "passing gas", we know to be you exhaling.
Rock on! Exactly! We don't put urinals in the women's locker room for a reason.

Ignore him, he can't even spell correctly. Just to acknowledge him is an insult to you, as you must lower yourself to his level. You are plainly above him, don't honor him with notice.

Like ive told you several times now....

Judge ginsberg got the attorney representing DOMA to say DOMA was passed on political and religious grounds....

and then he said " then throw it out.."

which is what the justices will likely do.

it is best you get this through your mind now, to get it over with....

you seem so pained when others(who you dislike) can enjoy the same rights as you.

All of those names and insults that I have received have shown me how wrong I was, to have missed out on being a liberal. The hate-fueled rants have convinced me that the gays are really the lovers and peaceful ones. Silly me... Chongo has especially me shown the true way to practice tolerance. By his use of the children of some of the posters, he has shown me that his point of view is the correct one, the delicate one. By asking KiMare about abortion, he has shown me the practice of love at work. How could I have missed these valuable points?

Do you really think that we all hate you? Seriously?

I realize this is going to sound childish, but you guys started it.

We're trying to live our lives the only way that we know how. We don't want to hide who we are. We want the same rights and protections (not just in marriage) as you guys enjoy. And we'd like to be left alone.

But the way I see it, you've got people on your side telling us things like, "we hate the sin and not the sinner" and "we don't mind if you're gay, just don't practice it" and "it's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" and (in Kimare's words) "You're genetic mistakes", "You're sexually broken", "You spread diseases", "You play in each other's shit" (that last one was a rough translation of what he says, but he'll understand, I'm sure)...

We FEEL like you guys HATE us. It seems like that's what's coming from your mouths.

How are we supposed to respond? Should we just lay down and let you run all over us? Should we go ahead and let your words and actions toward us make so many young gay kids feel like the only way they can get any peace is to send themselves to God by way of suicide?

My heterosexual parents hated me so badly after they learned that I am gay that they actually made plans to come to my house and murder me, then kill themselves; so that NO ONE would EVER know of my "shameful" secret. My mom told me over and over that she would rather I be in a coffin than to know that I was gay.

How can it be that people hate us so bad that they would rather see us dead than to have us live on the planet?

I just don't get it...

Here's the deal... You guys back down, let us live our own lives, and we'll back down. You won't even notice us.

You guys started it. You guys decided that you won't have us living amongst you. You've had it in for us for eons (give or take a few centuries).

We're not going away. Even if we wanted to, we're not going away.

There isn't one single gay person on this planet who said, "You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to change my sexual attraction so that most people will hate me and fear me." Nobody ever did that.

We were born this way. We don't know why. And frankly, it shouldn't matter, because we pose no threat to you or society.

Try for once to see the situation from our perspectives.

If the shoe were on the other foot, how would you respond?

It does not matter the place or of whome is holding the book saying the words. It is done under God and in God's name. Sure back in the day matramony was to take place in a church, the rules have altered a bit, but people of the same sex, it just bothers me, its not right! There will always be controversy on this topic!
