Rock... Thankfully, we gay people don't have to prove anything to you. If you choose to believe that we don't contribute to society--that we aren't beneficial, that's your opinion. I answered your question as a courtesy.
Here in the U.S., it's not illegal to be gay and it's not illegal to petition the courts, petition legislators, or sway public opinion to garner rights and protections we believe we deserve.
To be honest, I think it pleases me that you are unhappy with the state of affairs re: rights for gays. You guys have had no problem busting our chops for decades. I think it's time you had a taste of your own medicine.
If you give me your address, I'll keep you personally updated with regards the advances that we make in the years to come.
For an overly-medicated, alleged "social worker", I expected more from you.
1) I haven't asked you if h0m0s contribute to society.
2) You may be beneficial, but that isn't because of your SSSB.
3) It may not be illegal, but it is a frivilous waste of resources to make our government focus on sexual behavior.
4) Of course it please you. You are petty.
5) You may not have my address, but, if you wish, you may let me know when you arrive in my town, so that I may throw that drink in your face.
6) "Busting your chops", as you put it, hasn't been my pursuit. You have the wrong target. I'm against calling yourselves "married", when that flies in the face of all that we know to be right.

Please, do so. It will make a wonderful pilot light for the flame-thrower...
Keep making jokes about the downfall of our country. It will hasten the arrival of our demise. At that point, you will need some Kleenex of your own. You'll be crying "We just got the right to marry. How could this country fall NOW? It'sSO UNFAIR!!!"
Clearly, you are not upset about the unravelling of our society. How could you be? You'd never have the guts to defend her. You just want to control how the rest of us live. A parasite. That's all you are.

I got a news flash for you:
We aren't "pulling through". We are in a death spiral. You might see nothing wrong with that, but I, and others, do. It is terminal.

Thank you for your response. I have started a new forum that I will be using to respond to someone who is asking for imput on certain subjects pertaining to the Scriptures and I will try my best to answer you there. The subject on the forum comes up almost on the top because I just started it this morning. It is called "Do you really know what the word Church means? There may be alot of people that want to write me, but I believe most of them will be there to ridicule my post or say profane things which really do not affect me because I have God through Christ on my side, but if I feel that someone is really asking a question like I feel you are doing, I will be more than willing to answer you the best way that I know through Scripture. Thanks much.
I had a look around and couldn't find it. You really ought to learn how to link to things instead of trying to get people to go on wild goose chases. There are several fora in here and I might be coming to the same thread on one different from yours. So you may have posted it somewhere I won't see it. To link to something just copy and paste the web addy from the place you're trying to link. Topix has a way of making the last half of a long link fade into the ether. So it is best to copy and paste, then put a gap in the middle of the link so it isn't wider than a topix post window.

Better yet respond here as that does away with trawling through the internet.

You may want to blow the Obammy, becuase of his race, but we don't hate the Obammy because of his race. It's because of his politics. Why don't you explain why you posted that bullshit?

If you look it up in the dictionary, they have a picture of Big D there.

It just pops in my mind whenever I try to describe that pompous ass Big D in one word. Insufferable.

More good news, the IRS Tax agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, who are known as hot beds of anti-American trouble maker's.

A kin to Communists and other radicals who are trying to wreck and or destroy America s we know it.

Time for a little "Red Deportations" if you ask me.

Hi, I have taken the time and tried twice in this site where you have written me and it is not going through. I wrote Topix and told them that I thought perhaps that I was being descriminated against because of being a Christian because half of what I write does not make it anywhere. I will try again tomorrow and see what happens or perhaps you could look me up on facebook for I have a place there where I write alot about my faith in Christ. Thank you so much for your note. May God be with you.

Oh, Lawdy! This is irony you just can't buy.

Maybe they looked at the pathetic unformatted sloganeering and simply skipped the post?
