Neither is who can marry who. I simply said I don't agree with it. Racism is something one can't help. Being gay is a decision of the mind.
Racism can be helped, and no one decides to be gay. I don't care what the bible said, it's just a book, written by men.

Trayvon Martin's family has reached a settlement in a wrongful death suit they filed against the homeowners association of the sub-division where Martin was killed, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Martin was shot to death just steps from his father's home on Feb. 26, 2012, by volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. The case drew national attention last year as the Sanford Police Department vacillated on whether to file charges against Zimmerman, who indicated that he'd shot Martin only after being attacked. Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder and is currently awaiting trial.

Portions of the settlement released Friday do not specify how much money Martin's family will receive, but according to the Sentinel, the figure is believed to be in excess of $1 million. The settlement does, however, state that Zimmerman is not part of the agreement. Lawyers for Martin's family have made it clear that they still plan to file a civil claim against Zimmerman at a later point.

Your posts reveal your ignorance about homosexuality. That is irrefutable. You stupidly insist it's a decision of the mind. I'm telling you it isn't. You don't get to contradict me. Truth is truth.

It is exactly the same as being black as far as having no choice, except easier to handle in one respect (you can hide it) and harder to handle in one respect (black people have black parents in solidarity, gay kids are alone.)

Now, if I understood this post correctly, and you can have your beliefs without fighting against legal recognition of my marriage, then that's cool. Believe what you want. However, if you want to discuss it, I'm here to dispel the rumors you've been told. You can't contradict my life, because I exist. I am real. I am moral. I am gay. I am close to God. I am married. God led me to my spouse just as He led me to everything else in my life.

So something is wrong on your end and you need to work that out. I recommend serious prayer on the subject.

But like I said, as long as you don't interfere in my marriage, I can't and have no reason to ask you to change your beliefs.

Well said! Being gay isn't easy; it's a struggle that one must go through as you described. Being black and gay is doubly difficult.
I think that straight people get stuck on the sex part, obsess about it. It makes straight men nervous. If they are secure in their masculinity they are fine.

New Hampshire officials rejected all four bids to privatize its prisons, citing prison operators’ insufficient understanding of court-mandated standards of inmate care, and proposed wages that are half what prison security staff now earn. The decision comes following a recent vote by the state House of Representatives to prohibit private prisons in the state. For-profit prison operators’ interest in profiting off inmates leads to perverse incentives, and many private facilities have been cited for human rights abuses and violations of state law.

Your premise holds no logic. I guess no one decides to like dogs, cats, or fat women. It's called sexual preference because it's what you prefer. Y'all running round here twisting these kids mind all up. That's why there's more gay kids than ever. If I'm wrong, why don't kids commit suicide because they are straight. Happens left & right with gays. Why is it taboo to most every nation on the planet? Like I said"doth what thou wilt." Doesn't effect me one way or the other, but don't lie to me about being born that way. If a person wanted to marry a goat is he normal also? It's got nothing to do withthe person in general cuz I'm quite sure some of them are good people at the same ratio as straight people, but if a person is religious & they have to twist their book of faith to fit their agenda, somethings wrong. Don't do what everyone on here does. Answer the questions!

Where do y'all get this stupid idea or assumption that it has anything to do with masculinity? This is morality, nothing more, nothing less. I'm a man. I don't think of or look at men in that manor. It's not just men, gay women are wrong as well. Ilk make it simple for you since you continue to avoid all other attempts to make you understand. Women have a hole, men have the tool tofill that hole. Make sense outta man on man, or women on women!

24 hours later I return to find lily and Tony C still bitter and angry. Hurling insults at people all the while claiming not to care what the other person's opinions are.

They are irked off because they cannot keep a tight watch on THEIR thread overnight and people who they disagree with dare to post. The angst of not being able to inform such a person that they are bottom dwelling scum suckers promptly.

Life must be both very empty and very challenging for them, as the most important thing to them is a Topix thread.

At twenty hours a week at fifteen bucks an hour (if we are to believe you), god and everybody knows you have time. Oh, and, it's juxtaposition in case anyone asks.
Wish I could remember who said this but it was a political figure or someone in the media who described a side of Bush the public didn't see. They said they wish every American could have met with him in private or in a small group because he was quite articulate and convincing in a more intimate setting. He just wasn't comfortable as a public speaker.

Maybe "praised" was overstating it.

But many people on both sides had the same impressions of Bush who knew him out of the public eye. Some have said they walked away with a sense that they knew him...that he was amazingly down to earth...that what you saw is what you got, no pretense...and that he had a very good sense of humor.

Seems if you are a person who whose income is guesstimated for the next year (2014) and you make more than the estimate you have to pay some of the 'tax credit' back. So say you estimate that you will be eligible for a $10,000 'tax credit' but in reality you are only eligible for $5000. Well the federal government sends your 'tax credit' to the insurance company. BUT you owe the federal government $5000. Does the government get it from the insurance company? NOoooo!!! You are on the hook for the 4 G's. A lot of small business people going to get slammed!

It's going to be just a big mess.
