And how many of these delicate thugs do we have upon us, telling us what kind of behavior we must accept?

And how much of our hard earned tax money must go to support their agenda?

It is an absolute crime that they play their ploy of the "put upon" while gayly milking the last remnants from our swiss cheese cultural morality.

Our Western Civilisation has turned into a moral cadavar that the bot flies of cultural decadence can feast on.

I only know one married gay couple here in New Mexico and that is my pastor and his husband.

You still don't debate the issue. You still just scream: Bigot!, as any debilitated thug would do.

I have a question. Does anyone even recall a question regarding sexual preference on the census forms? I note that the headline indicates the results are based on a new analysis of census figures. Seems to me they could be picking up households with two women or two men sharing a residence. Haven't they ever heard of roommates?

I wonder how much money was sucked up with this analysis.

I agree.

In addition to that, the purpose of the census is to determine a state's population, and density, so as to accurately apportion U.S. Representatives in congress. They are NOT entitled to know ANYTHING more than how many people live in a particular residence.

I had a census worker come to my home, because I had only indicated on the form how many people resided at my home. I declined to answer any questions the census taker asked me, other than the number of people living at my home.

The federal government is already far too intrusive. There is no moral, legal, nor any other reason for them to have any other additional info about each residence and each citizen.

Would bad math used in gay statistics be called the "fudge factor"?

I did the exact same thing. When they showed up I told them I would not answer any of their questions. Guess we'll have to deal with them again next time lol!
