That's what gays are doing. Keep it in your closets.
no, they are just living their lives.

your bigotry is from the old world..

no one is forcing you to be gay...that couldn't happen.

why did you drag homosexuality into this? seems like your cult adherence is being proved to be faltering so you need to divert the conversation...typical actions of an idiotic bigot.

1. I don't object to that.
2. It should be obvious. Religion is protected. Gay bigotry toward religion and those who follow it is overwhelming. Gays would be thrilled if there was no religion. Much of your opposition would disappear. Or would it?

no you are incorrect. many gays are religious.

most people that see the idiocy of religious cults do so not because of their gender preference but because of the rationality of it...

sorry nice try to hide your bigotry behind your religion, but it didn't work.

if you follow a religion that preaches bigotry, you are still a bigot.

If you honestly believe that, then CLEARLY you have NO IDEA what the definition of "subsidize" is. "Not taxed" as NOT synonymous with "subsidized".

Furthermore, people and organizations have a RIGHT to their money. You seem to think that only government has a RIGHT to your money.

Parts of it, yes. No one has to be told there are gays. What you do is try to force them to think of gays as you want them to. Sorry, no.

1. I am absolutely correct.
2. These discussion boards have their regulars and may be limited in scope but when I see terms like 'cult''sky fairy''myth' I see gay bigotry toward those who practice a religion.
3. If you condemn people who follow and practice a religion that doesn't see gay as normal or acceptable then you are a bigot.

no, you are not even close to correct.

religions are cults. the gods they attempt to create are sky fairies...at best...this is not bigotry these are facts.

no by calling bigots bigots, i am just stating facts and if they follow a religion that tells them that, they are clearly bigots. there is absolutely nothing wrong with condemning bigotry..this is what moral people should do. but you don't know about good morals do you? you have made that abundantly clear. you are the worst of the human species..

not even close to correct. if we let some organizations get by tax free, they are not paying their fair share, thus we are subsidizing that org. how long do you think those massive basilicas and cathedrals would stay churches if they had to pay property taxes on what is usually prime real estate? about less than a year... they'd be the hottest nightclub in town in time for the next fiscal year...

2. You are stating what you believe to be facts. You don't condemn bigotry, you embrace it and use it, selectively.

i'm not blaming anyone for it. nothing to blame. its great that SS couples adopt kids that need homes or otherwise have surrogate babies...

but again, the other kids will notice...and then most people know a gay couple or two.

you may want to keep kids in a bubble. is that what happened to you to make you so stupid and unknowing of the real world?
