Wow, the vitriol and vendetta-leveling is alarming. Apparently, asking gays to engage in civil debate to explain their position means you hate them and intend to do them harm.
Its not the "Homophobes" That irk you, its the threat of debate itself; the looming threat of being called on to defend the merits of your cause in an intellegent way-thats what makes you lash out at me. Now why is this?
Because there's nothing to debate. We are entitled to equal rights, end of story.

I think you pretty well know I'm informed on this issue leaps and bounds past that old 'equal rights' mantra.

The activists crusading for gays are simply drunk with power. They're moving Heaven and earth to relegate straights and Christians into the closet.
Why do you think the working title of "After the Ball",(the gay activists' playbook) was called "the Overhauling of Straight America"?

They're employing political manueuvers of the sleaziest, sneakiest kinds. There's no logical stopping point for their malicious ambition.

Gay marriage is but a tool, a public relations tool. It gets an official Govt. stamp of legitimacy put on the gay lifestyle -after which, nothing will be off limits to them.

I've posed very civil questions here, and the only responses were leveling wild accusations, name-calling, semantics, and changing the subject.

I want to believe there is rightiousness in your crusade for marriage, but if you cannot, will not, argue the merits of your aims in an adult way, it paints a clear picture of the authenticity of your plight.

Here is where my government is spending rediculous amounts of money on AIDS compared with other, more organic, diseases.

The gay lifestyle is to blame for astrinomical AIDS spending in my country.

This trickles down to the huge insurance premiums I and many others are stuck with. We're stuck with paying for the byproducts of the gay lifestyle.

My insurance goes to pay for your wife's lady problems and child birth and all that stuff also. Stop wallowing in self pity. How much did it cost to keep Terri Schaivo alive? HER problems were due to her anorexia. Is that caused by gays also?

Plenty of hetero women have HIV nowdays also. Are you going to let them die?

No, got you. Hatred and bias against any froup for any reason is always wrong. Your made up scenarios only prove how far you will go to justify your bigotry and hatred.
You are simply a hater, with no redeeming qualities obseved at all.
But which is it, you already have said its ok to hate someone for dissagreeing with the aims of gay activism, yet your proponents actively and enthtsiastically level hatred against christians and conscientious dissidents. You deviated from your very position, because you really have no position at all.

How do your keep all your lies straight?? Do you write them down??

My position is simple.

Here it is:

If you want to withhold equal rights from me, with no legal reason, the only real reason has to be HATE.

See how simple???

B.S. The only thing you want to believe is your preconceived ideas about the "gay agenda".

We are employing the same legitimate tactics to pass legislation as any other group- convincing enough legislators to back equal rights. We will also use the courts when necessary to strike down unconstitutional laws- i.e. DOMA, Prop8, etc.

We are also educating the general public about why it is important for same-sex couples to have the same rights as other couples. Those efforts can be seen in Maine, Washington, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, & New Jersey this year. We are unlikely to be successful in all of them, but even a loss at the polls moves the conversation forward.

A virus is to blame for the astronomical spending needed for AIDS treatment. The overwhelming majority of gays & lesbians don't have HIV/AIDS, so obviously it's not a byproduct of the "gay lifestyle". It's a result of having unprotected sex with an infected person. Just look overseas where the overwhelming majority of HIV/AIDS cases is among heterosexuals. Does that mean it's a "byproduct of the hetero lifestyle"?

Based on this, and your previous comment, you have no idea what's going on at all. Homosexual people are not looking to destroy anything. Christian zealots have been trying to seize control of this country for so long, and the more we secularists and those decent christians have allowed it, the more messed up the country has gotten. It's not gay people fighting to end christian tyranny, it's everyone who uses reason and logic.

All the gay people want is equal rights, that's it, marriage, family, the American dream, just like everyone else, but you see, everyone should want to defend their rights because if they cannot have equal rights, what's to stop the government from taking rights away from others, like mixed race couples, or Protestants, or Catholics, or Mormons, or .... insert your particular church here to get the idea.

The banner uniting christians is as flimsy as the top of a pudding cup, that thin skin it gets when it's opened, yeah, that thin. Once the religious zealots break everyone else down, they will begin the war to determine which christian religion or cult is "on top" and outlaw the rest of you.

Thats patently insane. Remenber, the Founding Fathers said the constitution was meant for a moral and rightious people. Dont hold the CHristian majority to the standards of the Fred Phelpps of this world, just like Muslims here are trying to distance themselves from those practicing radical Islam. And its important to emphasize that everyday gays on the street have little in common with the gay activists, who dont only want simple dignities from life. They want to RULE.

I suggest you read the constitution, as well as what the founding fathers said. They wanted a secular government, end of story. You can twist things all you want. The US is not a christian nation, and if it was, it's less likely to be based on your religion considering the hundreds of christian religions.
