Firstly, IF....... you had even bothered to read the article, you would have read that the proposed anti-EQUALITY bills have almost NO CHANCE of passage in Congress, as Republican Speaker Of The House John Boehner is not even supporting these bills, meaning the bills will not even get voted upon.

Secondly, IF....... you do not plan on marrying a gay or lesbian person, how do these SCOTUS decisions, and these anti-EQUALITY bills, affect you ?

Please give 3 specific examples.

Thank you very much for your attention to these most important matters.

I guess the last republican dinosaur will die before realizing the s/he is/has been on the wrong side of history. Guess they don't mind being right up there with the KKK. Keep it gop! The more you fight it, the more stupid you appear.

Thank you, Sir Andrew. Yes, that's exactly what I mean.

The biggest problem with the Libertarian Party is that they seem to want a pure democracy: majority rules over all. Individual liberty suffers under such a system, as do minority groups.

And the Tea Party... Well, let's not even go there.

And our enemy claims to have God on its side.

Jesus--"With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible" (Matt. 19:26)

So with God the bigots failed to keep gays in the closet, Maybe the pew warmers should ask themselves which side God is on.

May I suggest you post that in every discussion in the gay/lesbian forum, I would hate for any one to miss reading it. That is really good. And it should really piss off the GOP's. Good.

I have been a member of the Libertarian party for 45 years and I have never heard anyone suggest anything but disgust for mob rule. The following came from the Libertarian Party to show the moral bankruptcy of voting:

Q: What do you call two wolves and one lamb voting on what to eat for lunch?

A: A democracy.

In a Republic the majority never has the right to vote on the rights of a minority. As our Republic evolved slavery was ended, women fought for their right to vote be recognized and now homosexuals are demanding government discrimination against their peaceful activities with other consenting adults be ended.

It has always been Christianity that has been the problem. White heterosexual Christian males have fought progress since day one and they continue to fight progress to this day.

But lucky for freedom they keep losing. First they lost slavery, it is illegal, and now women can vote. Soon gays will enjoy their right to marry in all states and it will spread around the world.

Libertarianism is NOT the problem Christianity is the problem.

Aren't all the "republitards" Christians? People who believe the earth is 6,000 years old, that the bat is a bird and that the earth rests on pillars.
