With regard to "marriage," "morality," "equality," and "righteousness" -- all are eternal truths from time immemorial, not owned by man, but established by God.
With regard to "civil rights," homosexuals enjoy each and every civil right available to every U.S. citizen. In fact, you enjoy special rights and remedies [i.e., "hate crimes laws," etc.] on account of the fact that engage in aberrant sexual behaviors.
Imagine that.
So, in addition to the other ex cathedra from your bellybutton pontifications, you arrogate to yourself and your gang the prerogative to define terms?

No surprise. Your ilk have been enslaving minds with that gambit for centuries.

It's over.

No "special rights", but specific remedies to specifically targeted crimes belong to all of us, you included.

WHO specifically at "Guide" said that? Staff or interview subject? What was the CONTEXT of what you claim to be quoting?
Where's the link to your source?
btw, it was Sigmund Freud who first taught that even children are "sexual" beings. Take it up with him.
You are correct that "homosexual" and "pedophile" are not mutually exclusive. The same can be said of "heterosexual" and "pedophile".
"Webster's" is NOT the place to go for clinical and/or legal definitions of terms because such dictionaries offer merely colloquial usages, not scientific or legal usages.
Less copy-n-paste, please.
The context is plain for those with even half a brain.
Naturally, those are the folks were are not engaging in same-sex behaviors.

You might check your collection of past issues of Guide for the details.

France has plunged itself into moral chaos by destroying its societal foundations. Violence is often the result, though it is not acceptable. In fact:
"We want a peaceful demonstration and we reject all groups that directly target homosexual people," said Frigide Barjot, spokeswoman for the group that spearheads the anti-bill movement.
That's just plausible deniability at work. She's made other comments that amount to inciting to riot.

At the very least, such speech is encouraging to the violent ... and we have to live and die with the result.

I'll have to agree with Cory Truax and...(gasp!)...Andrew Sullivan on these special-rights laws:

TRUAX:

Itís Unconstitutional

The 14th Amendment of a sparely-considered document, The United States Constitution, guarantees equal protection under the law. Laws of this sort contravene both the essence of the Declaration of Independenceóall men are created equalóand the expressed language of the Constitution. These laws value the life of a 22-year old, able-bodied homosexual male over that of your elderly grandmotheróunless, of course, your grandmother is a lesbian.

Furthermore, giving jurisdiction of one certain type of crime to the federal government should send those who revere the 10th Amendment into a rage. In every way, hate crimes laws are not just bad ideas: theyíre bad law.

The Reasoning

Do any readers think we NEED an amendment to prevent hate crimes against the LGBT community? Really? Are you seeing the mass persecution of gays ANYWHERE? Anywhere at all?

This law isnít about "protecting" homosexuals. Itís about the Left pandering to a small but money-laden and activist faction in their party.

Itís Unenforceable

Iíd like to hear this amendmentís proponentsí idea on how to determine what crime is a hate crime. How is an officer of the law or an officer of the court supposed to ascertain that this particular act was committed out of hatred?

In that vein, I must ask, "Isnít any crime a hate crime?" Iím fairly sure that the murders that take place after husbands come home earlier than expected are perpetrated out of hatred. Should we then enact laws to protect adulterers from hate?

Even with the entire Justice Department working on it, I canít surmise the scenario where we find indisputable evidence that someone committed an act of violence out of hate."

SULLIVAN:

"The real reason for hate crime laws is not the defense of human beings from crime. There are already laws against that Ė and Matthew Shepardís murderers were successfully prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in a state with no hate crimes law at the time.

The real reason for the invention of hate crimes was a hard-left critique of conventional liberal justice and the emergence of special interest groups which need boutique legislation to raise funds for their large staffs and luxurious buildings."

Thatís pretty damning coming from him.

A nun accused of voter fraud in Hamilton County today entered a guilty plea in court. Prosecutors say Sister Marguerite Kloos was one of three people named in an indictment back in March for voting in the 2012 Presidential Election using the names of relatives or deceased Hamilton County residents or for voting more than one time using the same name.

54 year old Sister Marguerite Kloos was sentenced to a diversion program after entering her guilty plea in court on Tuesday, April 16th. Once she has completed that program, her guilty plea and conviction will be wiped from the court records.

Kloos was accused of voter fraud for voting on behalf of a fellow nun who died before her absentee ballot had been mailed out by the Board of Elections. Kloos could have been sentenced to 18 months in jail.

In April, the largest organization of Roman Catholic nuns in the U.S. was hit by a Vatican-ordered crackdown that described the LCWR as being "too radical" for pushing "feminist themes" in its ministry. The LSWR, founded in 1956, boasts more than 1,500 nuns and sisters, who work in social services, parish ministries, education, health care and religious education.

The organization has gone against official Roman Catholic Church doctrine by endorsing same-sex marriage and defending pro-choice as well as pro-euthanasia positions.

The same applies to "marriage." I can accept civil unions and all the rights they entail. But I will never accept the idea of gay "marriage." Ever.
And there are more than 20 states that will never accept it, either.
Just one more step on the road to open conflict in this country.
The anti-miscegenationists made the exact same statements.
