Disturbing the Peace and inciting a disturbance both pass Constitutional muster everyday.

Most people into anal sex are straight. Ask you mom if she's ever given some guy a "backstage pass".

I'm not saying people should harm them, in fact, they shouldn't, but I bet one day there will be lots of funerals for those WBC protesters, IYKWIM.

Don't fret, people will eventually like your legal, spiritual and psychological ideal of marriage. Maybe not as much as they endorse traditional family values like being respectful, but you'll get some support eventually.

Look what we've accomplished in the last 10 years!

The only thing you've accomplished in the last ten years is the further subversion and decadence of our society. Homosexuals greatest achievements are Ernst Roehm, hiv/aids, substance abuse, and pornography. The follyhood fairy tale marriage to death continues its dark decadent reign upon America.

Bayard Rustin, a gay black man, was instrumental in ending segregation and probably the primary reason for equality enjoyed by black people today. Your insults against homosexuals is hateful and mean spirited.

About time. All states need to follow this as well. Protesting a funeral is the lowest thing you can do, anyone who protests one is less than animal.

Look up the following for class tomorrow at 8 AM: Alan Turing, Bayard Rustin, President James Buchanan, King James I, Peter the Great, Alexander the Great, Sir John Gielgud, Gertrude Stein.

They were all GAY. Mr. Turing cracked the ENIGMA code of the Nazis during WWII. Get a clue, and grow UP.

Wouldn't it be fun to go to Phreddie's grave after he goes to his eternal (infernal?) reward and plant a bunch of rainbow flags on it?

Rainbow flags on his grave? What a DESECRATION to OUR flag. You'd have to burn it afterwards.

I think a big bottle of piss dumped into the ground would be would be more appropriate.

Mr. Turing's computer research is in large part responsible for the computer that our favorite name changing hater uses day and night.

You've forgotten the modern day gay people who have made huge changes in society. Tennessee Williams, the guy who runs Google, I forget his name, and so on.

If I had more time, I would look up a list or two. Gotta take the cat to the vet this morning. Nothing wrong, just a check up, so need to worry!
