Remember that god said " YA'aiwaah, Waair-oahwa, Gaarghi gaarghi yituo waair, gaarghi nu shtol 'em ya'aiwaah"
These powerful words from God cannot be denied, cannot be shut from our ears as they ring down the millenia like great bells pealing forth with the truth, the light and the way. Which could maybe be what he said and meant to address. We shall never know, more's the pity, because no one then or now has ever known what these utterances can mean. Mine this opportunity...see if you can convince some one or many that YOU alone know what was uttered here and that only YOU can lead us to a better place. You dont have to have it right, just be convincing and be sure to demand submission and suspension of disbelief...a GOLDEN opportunity.

The integrity of your world is fractured every which way VV. That is what I keep exposing over and over. It is why I annoy you so deeply.
What was obscene and perverted about the parade?

As you probably know, Knoxville has pretty strict standards when it comes to those kinds of issues. If an official believed that we were "obscene and perverted" he or she would have stopped the parade.

I AM one of those Christians who believe in God, science and reality. But I am NOT a Christian who races to the Books of the Bible to pore through the onion skin paper, trying to find "gotcha" rules that can be hurled at someone in a judgmental manner.

I believe in Christ. I believe that Christ is the Son of God. And I believe that based on our historical understanding of homosexuality, gays have been a part of mankind for eons. We are a part of God's natural world.

You don't annoy me. Rather you show me just how ridiculous and desperate your side has become.

You give me the opportunity to correct ignorance.

That's not a lifestyle being 'spit' out (what a gay depiction of birth), that's a birth defect. One of many. Face it and deal with it honestly.
You are the one choosing the twisted lifestyle. The pictures you revel in only prove it.
A birth defect impacts a person's ability to function happily throughout their lives.

Homosexuality, therefore, is not a birth defect. It is a characteristic--kind of like having blond hair or being left handed.

My depraved behavior? I walked in a parade yesterday and waved at thousands of men, women, and children. I wore a pair of regular, men's cargo shorts and a lavender colored polo shirt. Oh, and I wore a straw cowboy hat to keep from burning my face in the sun.
If you think that's depraved, then you and I have VERY different ideas on what the word means.
And regarding your accusations of "slander", honey you think WAY too much of yourself to believe that I would bother to go to the trouble of trying to slander you.
If you can't stand the heat, please, be my guest and get off this forum.
You get on here and lie about gays and lesbians every day. We don't call it slander because we just consider the incompetent and ignorant source.
Oy vey.

So are you going on record as saying that the world is a better place with homosexuals in it?

The new report also noted that Twitter postings on the subject were nearly evenly split between support and opposition for the measure, "aligning more closely with public opinion than with the news media."

Not necessarily. People with "birth defects" do manage to function happily throughout their lives. Some homosexuals ability to function happily is impacted by homosexuality.

Yes... You are exactly right. The number one reason that gay people exist is because straight people keep giving birth to us.
Those of you who have problems with gay people have no one to blame but yourselves.
If you really wanted to wipe out homosexuality, you'd stop having children--put a complete moratorium on all childbirth--until you could figure out a way to test your embryos for the yet to be discovered "cause" of homosexuality.
Then, once you have determined that your child will likely be homosexual, you can choose to abort it before it is born.
Kind of sounds like a disgusting idea to me. But there are those out there (Kimare) who believe that a perfect world would be one that does not include homosexuals.
I wonder if some over zealous rainbow flag wavers cringe at the notion they were created by coitus. Must drive some of them crazy.
