Well, "spot on" has been posted by Norton and his 100+ names/locations well beyond 274 times! Pathetic excuse for a troll, and a total waste of tax dollars to support his social/mentally challenged life.

In private, he is more colloquial, he uses the word "queer".

I propose we stop using the word "gay", and replace it with "merry". That way, we can all start even.

"Queer" is more descriptive and universally understood.

Obama knows 'GAY' means 'GODLY'

In all of recorded history; the first known use of 'GAY' originated in the Authorized King James Bible where GOD tells TOPIX trolls to sit under HIS footstool when in the presence of a GAY person:
**********
James 2:3 > And yee haue respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say vnto him, Sit thou here in a good place: and say to the poore, Stand thou there, or sit here vnder my footstoole
**********

Then Christians won't be able to say "Merry Christmas" any more. They'll have to great each other with "Have a homosexual Christmas!"

How about "Have a queer Christmas with a queer Christ in it" since the Fundies like to run on about putting the "Christ" back in "Christmas."

It is kind of interesting that some religions (Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and I believe Zoroastrianism) celebrate "birthday" holidays while others do not.
