Don't hate any you won't have to worry about the police coming after you.
Until you get rejected at the funeral of your partner of 30 years, you won't understand what freedoms you really have. Not allowed to be at his death bed, even as he begs for you to be by his side for comfort. Having no choice in Ohio where he is to be buried, even after you have discussed it, and he planned for it. Its life, and the comfort a companion brings.
Id marry a woman! you brought this on yourself, its not a straight persons job to fix what you created. you knew that going in. move on!

What I want to know is if you have a woman and you are having sex and you are happy. Then why the hell do you really care what gay people do? I'm gay and I **** a woman almost every night and I love it, and so does she. We don't go around looking at straight people and judging who died and made you God? Just because we are gay don't mean we can't live like you all live. We have two kids and we are a family. Same as you straight people. So what makes you so damn diffrent? Your blood is red like mine.
what makes us different? we have a egg and sperm!!!!!!!

I do not necessarily believe that homosexuality is right. I believe that is up to the individual person. It's not right for me, but I do not try to live someone else's life and decide what is right or wrong for them.
I think everyone in the world is looking for someone to make them feel special and loved; whether that be a man, woman, pet, or religion. Who am I to judge that one lifestyle is more "holy" than the next.
Judge not, least thou be judged.
do you feel the same way about a pedophile? you cant hide out your whole life and stick your head in the sand. we live in a dark world. now take a stand for what god says is right! Ephesians 6:12

Yes, grow a pair of balls and be brave enough to oppress minorities, and speak out against the Gay Pride Parade. How dare they seek to be recognized as a legitimate part of society. Do your part in maintaining oppression, and keep homosexuals restricted to a second class citizenship.
Also, make sure you don't watch Brokeback Mountain. While you're at it, avoid watching Milk, that other movie about Matthew Sheperd, etc. etc. These movies are dangerous because they portray homosexuals as real human beings, not as the evil demonic sodomites they really are. So you should avoid contradicting ideas, after all, blind faith is much more useful in your crusade against this perceived perversion.
I agree, Very, very well said!

Because they are mentally ill. Homosexuality was a documented mental illness according to the American Psychiatric Association, before 1973. Then the leftists got control and they reversed it. PC crap.

Today was a good day for the gay community in Columbus. While people will always bash the gay community, it was a great event and something that the city should be proud of. While everyone might not agree with everything that happens in the community, it is a group of people gathering together, whether white, black, Hispanic, etc and all getting along. No matter the religion, race or anything else, you are accepted. For me today, being an active participant in the festivities, I encourage the protestors and the crazies to come out. It only makes us stronger. I have been with my husband for 9 years now and plan on another 60. I have been the victim of gay bashing and was hospitalized for it. NO matter what you can throw at me, I will always be proud and happy to be a gay man. From some of the posts that I have read here, I have to say that we have some very uneducated and unhappy people in this city. For you all, I wish you the best of luck in life. I hope that you are able to find some happiness. We have found happiness. You can to.

Last year was my first pride and it was the best. You could not of said it better this year I can't make it to Columbus but will be there next year. I wish the best for you and your man. People really don't relize what gay people go through just trying to live life and nothing else.

Why are perverts proud of their sodomy and abortions and pornography?
