Hey why would you sit that and say that you have 4 beautiful children that accept all differnent kind of people, then you sit there and call religious people stupid, well that is funny i think your kids are smarter than you because you abviously dont accept all different kind of people, or you would not judge them.Stop being hypicritical, and another thing being gay is not right even to some people that are not religious, why would you put a dick in the ass of a man but not a woman it is just an excuse for them to be curious and not be able to control them selves, THEY ARE WEEK, and for anoher woman to go get a strap on a fuck another girl but not to have a real dick in her is not the same? I'm I missing something?

So. What's the point? Our "family oriented community" also includes people that drink too much and drug users. We're not celebrating them with a day for them, either.
Hate to break it to you Amber, it's our right as a community to govern ourselves. If you like them so much, invite them to your community. Use your tax dollars. You don't pay a dime of tax dollars in Crystal Lake, so it doesn't concern you.
Our stores and restuarants are doing just fine without their money, but thank you for your concern. They can help out a more disadvantaged community.
I'm sorry massa, since you no wan' me on yo' fiels no mor, I'z juz gwan go back hom 'a my relations. Since you alls done workin me to death...
How about we go back to a world where women can't vote, or own property, and anyone who isn't a WASP has to wait at the back of the restaurant to pick up food.
How about we raise our sons and daughters to believe that those who are not like us are ugly, and don't deserve our patience or our hospitality. How would Jesus look upon you as you turn away the poor, the needy, the hungry, the less fortunate, the drug addicts, the anyone who isn't like your picture perfect idea of what white suburbia should look like?
Sheesh. America would never have come so far with people like you running things.

I can handle the gays but the fiftysomething manhating houswives are just too much. KEEP YOUR FAT ASS ON THE COUCH BONNIE. JUST BECAUSE YOU RELIGIOUSLY WATCH DOCTOR PHIL DOESNT MEAN YOUR A THREAT TO ME. YOU ARE A FAGGOT LOVER AND YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM. QUIT BEING A PART OF THE PROBLEM AND BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION.
You are not preaching love; you are preaching hate.

I've lived in Crystal Lake all my life, and love it here -- we are lucky to have such a great community. I'm a doctor in this area, and have treated countless citizens of this city. I'm horrified and embarrased by what's being said here -- I can't believe these people are my neighbors. Instead of focusing on the gays that are 'tainting' our community -- look at yourselves. I hope you people don't teach this BS to your kids. Again, so unbelievably embarrased for our community.

Gays should not be allowed to have open events like this. If I liked strange types of sex, I would not force a whole community to acknowledge that. Get real, its just bad manners. Further, their Gay-is-OK propaganda is deadly -- any children listening to it might be tempted to go gay if they are on the borderline and forever have their genes excised from the gene pool. In sum, we gain nothing and stand to lose the most precious thing we have -- children (and grandchildren). so therefore these games should be eliminated on logical grounds.

What I don't understand is why someone can't be who they are without requiring US to acknoledge it? Its one thing to fight for rights...but this is not that. Why don't you all just live your lives...enjoy who you are and participate in the community like everyone else. Every group in the world doesn't need a festival.

Perhaps Julian should be more worried about living in the armpit of the civilized world, L.A., than whats going on in a small midwestern town. You views and opinions are tainted by the extreme liberal ideals practiced in California and really have no bearing on what happens in Crystal Lake, Il. Julian obviously condones this type of behavior, which is of no surprise to me since L.A. is a sespool of HIV infested heathons. In retort to his liberal babble, I must say that our community has never had anyone try to force homosexuality into it before, so it was a non-issue during passed elections. Now that we know that the board of trustees, and the Mayor of Crystal Lake are homosexual sympathizers, you better beleive that their constituency has severely diminished. They have gone against the small town ideals that Crystal Lake residents have enjoyed for years, and have thrust us into accepting a pagan lifestyle. The voice of the people has not been heard on this issue, but I can assure the voice will be heard on election day.
"See you at the games!!!!"
God does not hate, some people should leave the judging to god himself and mind their bussiness.
God is also a healer and I believe hes insightfull. It take all kinds of people to make the world go round, stop the hate.

Steve's right. Can we have xxxtittiesxxx and beer games?
That's what I'm into. Let me force that in the community. Bring your kids, this is gonna be fun.

I dont' understand why they need their own games? If they are "just like us" and want to be treated equal.. then quit asking for special things, like your own olympics...
I am so tired of having to accept things I think are not right cuz I may offend you.. I dont' really care if I offend you.. Your opinoin offends me but you dont' seem to care...
Do you want to be equal or special? You can't have it both ways.

Not in crystal lake. Down where my mom lives. We actually didnt ask for the games there either. Straight people ask for a lot too. Where i am from comes with a lot more respect for gays i come here and it is sick what people say about us. If u dont care for it stop spending ur time commenting so much about it.

MEL give it up no one cares if you're gay.
You're just a drama queen and that is what people don't like about you.
The gay part no one cares about. Get over yourself.

your pretty stupid if you think that a public loss of life is kept quiet just because the griving family doesn't want the shame of reading about there lost son and brother. Ever hear of freedom of speach and press? I guess not or you would keep your thought to yourself.
It's hard for the familys of suicide victimes and they should never blame the press for something that was done in public. Think of young kids walking by that may have seen him? I am sorry that you have to go through it , really.

You really are an idiot and it shows EVERYTIME you post something. Do the online world, and others, a favor and just go away before kharma takes you away. Retroprocity? Really, what the "F" is that moron?

Just answer the question douche bag, what the f is retroprocity?
