So an event that happens ONCE a year in your town has sent you off the rails. STOP gawking at the paper or leering at the news when you see some story that upsets you. Lay down the Extra Crispy Cheetos for 10 seconds, and grab your greasy remote and CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

You are certainly easily upset. Grow a pair, Nancy.

Lying and making up false names is always EVIL, LITTLE liar.

And, LITTLE LIAR, your ""logic"" ahem, cough cough, is skewed and missing, as usual. Rape and pedophilia are crimes involving unwilling or incapable victims. Gay encounters involve adult willing partners. You are not just apples and oranges, but apples and toasters in this one, Cletus.

Nooooooo, once again you are speaking of an abuser and a victim.

How can adult LGBT and their consensual behavior POSSIBLY affect YOU?

Why don't YOU go to Uganda where they despise gays, that country sounds more to YOUR liking than this one does.

Go to Saudi Arabia then, they're richer than God AND hate gays.

By the way, it's MANY, not MANNY. Unless you are speaking about the Latino boy on "Modern Family".

LMFAO
Sadly, HE'S dead and buried, yet you live.

It makes me wonder what God is thinking at times. He was a brilliant intellectual and you are barely literate.

He was wise and kind yet you are one step from the apes and only know how to fling your own poop, and have never given comfort or pleasure to anyone.

Some people come on to Topix to piss or moan or complain or just let off steam. You only seem to be here to taunt and scream silly insults and try to hurt people's feelings, that seems to make you happiest.

What do you get out of it? For once in your life, answer without a stupid wise crack.

What do you get out of it? Did you have ANY moral training at all? Did you ever hear of the Golden Rule, or learn any kindness in your youth?

I don't get it, what possible use does God have for YOU?

Perhaps San Francisco as a sanctuary city can welcome Russian homosexuals to the Gay Area community. Fresh Slavic meat for the Queens of the Castro District and more Democrat voters.

@Curteese...and all the like-minded:

Why do so many members of the GLBT group spew so much HATE towards the church and towards Christians?!?! It's ironic you accuse them of all of these things...but it's you who persecutes the church. The MAJORITY of Christians do NOT hate or bash GLBT's! You have a very SMALL group of people who claim to be Christians that say truly vile things and yet you target us as a whole. You should treat people the way you want to be treated. While it is true that MOST Christians don't agree with the homosexual lifestyle, it doesn't change our love for the people. I have many GLB friends and family, I love them dearly. No, I don't agree with that part of their life...but GUESS WHAT?!?! They don't need my approval. So it's all good. AND!!!....GUESS WHAT ELSE?!?! They ALSO don't agree with EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING about MY lifestyle! YET, WE STILL LOVE EACH OTHER! What a WILD concept! I don't run off pouting and saying, "THEY HATE ME!" ...just because they don't approve of every little thing I do. Grow up. Seriously.
I just want to know when all of the hate and bashing will stop! I want to know when will this group who claims to want peace, love and acceptance- stop living a double standard?

Study history ... the kind that they didn't spoonfeed you in school.

The REAL history.

Most of us grew up in churches. We have our individual and our shared experiences to draw upon.

If a basher or other form of persecutor cites, quotes, or just parrots some religious rationale for their actions, then what are we to draw from this other than that SOMEBODY taught them this.

"But," you probably say, "I didn't teach them to do THAT."

What about the mother who left her guns available and accessible to the son who shot up that school?

I was taught a couple of things: there are sins of commission and of omission, and ... "Qui tacet consentire videtur" ("silence betokens consent").

btw: Religion is a chosen "lifestyle". Orientation is not. What do you imagine our "lifestyle" to be? Please give specific examples of uniquely "gay lifestyle" elements.

Oh, boo hoo. Quit feeling so sorry for yourself. I rarely, if ever say anything about your precious church. I ONLY respond to hostile Christians who attack ME and MY FRIENDS.

Once in a great while, some REAL Christian who GETS it comes on here and is loving and non judgmental. I praise THEM to the stars for following their God the way He meant them to do.

Anyway, what are you so worried about? Since you are all saved and everything, Jesus is going to keep your reservations on the books and you will get to heaven safe and sound. How can anyone saying anything about your church endanger your immortal soul and its ultimate destination? Is your faith THAT shaky?

You are like someone in big ship watching sharks swim below. They can't hurt you. Why are you bothered about them?

Gee, now WHY would someone be upset by what Christians think when you post lovely accepting stuff like the above?

Once again you mock me and respond with hatefulness when I have not said or done anything offensive toward you. You have so much hate inside, it saddens me. My faith isn't the least bit shaky, I'm not even sure where you drew that conclusion. I was merely posing the question of why you say you want the GLBT community to be treated with kindness and respect, yet you choose to target an entire group because of some of the nuts that stand out in that group. It bothers me because I believe in standing up for anyone who is being bullied over their religion, race, sexual orientation, or even for everyday choices they make about their general appearances, things they do or don't like, whether they're vegan or not...etc. Bullying is never okay. There's never a time where it's appropriate, and no matter how much you want to, you can't justify it. Instead of owning any wrong, you want to retaliate and strike at me. If this situation was reversed, and it was me attacking you- how well do you think this whole conversation would go over?
You say, "Once in a great while, some REAL Christian who GETS it comes on here and is loving and non judgemental..." that statement alone is extremely judgemental. You are judging the "REAL Christians" now from the phonies? To what standard do you hold these "REAL Christians?" Do they have to agree with everything you believe in to be considered a "real" christian? Or can they have beliefs that differ from yours? Also, you praise these Christians who stand out to you and have shown you kindness, but you turn around and make posts that are offensive and demeaning to ALL Christians. So you admittedly are returning their kindness with hate.
I'm not trying to provoke you. I'm trying to make you think. I'm not asking you to bow down and worship Christ. I wouldn't complain if you did, but I'm not trying to convert you. lol. I'm just asking that you think about the things you are saying and stop being a cyber bully.
Peace, love and God Bless.
