It's refreshing to see there are still countries left that have morals and decency and care about preserving family traditions and protecting children.
Um, have you visited? Children are victims of land mines over there. Where was the concern and protection then?

What a farce.

Heterosexuals are the worst examples of family traditions. Especially France, where taking a mistress appears to be the right of every man.

There are no family values among heterosexuals. It is a smoke screen and a bunch of lies.

Heterosexuals are dysfunctional liars who get married and accidentally procreate and then regret it seeking out distractions.

At least if homosexuals decide to marry and then have kids, it is not an accident. They purposefully form very nice families that are far superior to the hapless heterosexual messes I have seen.

And where do you think all those orphans come from whom Homosexuals adopt?

Technically, he is same generation as me ( 7 years younger).The difference is that he is "reformed Commie " meaning that he suffered from delusions of youth and all of the sudden saw the light whereas people like me were never in the dark and saw misgivings and advantages of the old regime and only objected to social injustices and some ideological nonsense ( like one party system )..Also, dear real Croatian , take on board that membership of Communist Party was around 5 % of population and that population had strong influence over regime ergo giving us reasonable individual rights and the benefit of even more reasonable social structure (free education and health care, my mothers legacy, 9 month maternity leave and 1 month annual holiday fully paid for and democratic election of local and republic leadership) ensuring decent standard of living.Federal government was under full control of KPJ and Tito was installed as benevolent dictator/figurehead ( rightly perceived by rest of the world ).So if you take into account that federation comprised of 5 naturally incompatible nations, the whole thing was a miracle in itself.As for Tomic, well it is a democracy so let him blab.
Whatever positives there may have been those 45 years contained negative aspects that left a legacy of pinning Croat vs Croat and a world full of subsequent generations full of real Croats born some place else. When you next want to rag on real Croats from the dijaspora recall that real Croat Josipovic is a negative influence who continues to divide Croats with nonsense like I mentioned in my previous post and, guess what, he walks on Croatian soil and breathes Croatian air everyday.

A former member of parliament here in my province and his partner adopted two small children a few years back. Fast forward to about 18 months ago and the news that his partner went missing and was found hiding in a field somewhere in the countryside. Fast forward once again to about 8 or 9 months ago when that partner committed suicide. In the aftermath of all of this it was revealed he was a manic depressive and this former member of parliament a former heroin addict. Never would a heterosexual couple with this kind of background been the right to adopt children. It's too bad that making a political statement came before the well being of these two children.

People that are happy with themselves have every reason to celebrate. We don't "need" our Pride events. Just like the Irish don't "need" St. Pattie's Day parades and residents of New Orleans don't "need" Mardi Gras.

But I do like that our parades get you all worked up.

Its just a personal thing for me, I don't think sexuality of any kind should be put on show for all to see is all. But if that stuff makes you happy then go for it..
Those that it does make happy do go for it. As they should. And those that don't want to see it aren't mandated to attend, watch or participate in any way. And absolutely nothing is ever "forced down people's throats" as you so elegantly stated.

Fair enough, I suppose. In London we also have an Afro-Caribbean parade (Notting hill carnival) so I see your point.

You are disgusting and a lier.
Pedos and sicko criminals. what are you doing in public, exposing your genital and disgusting highly deviant behavior?!
Nobody s perfect, but when you expose your insanity and present it as normality then you should be eliminated.

i have worked with two old gays (music/drama teachers)....every year they love to take gay cruises
their best EVER cruise was the adriatic....they love...love.. LOVED venice, zadar...and dubrovnik
my advice to croatians is...be nice to poofs...the pink dollar is easy money.
the average poof earns 1.3 male wages...2 poofs / no kids on 2.6 average wages is obscene
let the poofs marry..you can become a gay wedding / honeymoon mecca

If homosexuality is not normal, please present the scientific research that supports your claim.

And who exactly is exposing their genitals? You fundies sure do talk about this a lot. Seems to be all that's on your minds. Sickos.

"you should be eliminated"? Wow. You fundie Christians sure do love the idea of genocide. Probably because your Hebrew god engaged it in so many times. What lovely people you are, talking about the "elimination" of hundreds of thousands of people. Simply lovely. So Christ like.

Your posts specifically addressing them would indicate otherwise. Is it typical of you to talk out of both sides of your mouth?

Listen very carefully because I am going to say this only once : If you are a human being ( and indication is that you might be ) then you already have same rights as me and your sexual orientation is accepted ( although very much a minority )so what else do you want ??
And brush up on manners because if I start insulting you, you will never recover.

What are we doing here?! What do they want??
Seek and destroy, this is the target! We are afraid nowadays to tell the truth, or we would ne accused and persecuted. Around the bush, around the bush, all the time, instead of telling the truth.
You have your principles? aint that good, not good at all, mister. You're a criminal, can't we see it?!
