"Log Cabin Republicans has demonstrated the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act, on its face, violates the constitutional rights of its members. Plaintiff is entitled to the relief sought in its First Amended Complaint: a judicial declaration to that effect and a permanent injunction barring further enforcement of the Act." http://metroweekly.com/poliglot/2010/09/trial...

Even if this blatant attempt to harm gay people eventually makes it through, it will have some serious First amendment issues to overcome when challenged.

My worst nightmare as a parent would be if I learned my child was a jesus freak evangelist.

It's sad your parents reacted so negatively to your coming out. It somewhat explains your bitterness. Now get over it!

Wow. I've never met a heterosexual that had to decide if they wanted to be heterosexual. How does that work anyway? Did you attend a camp in VA and stroke horses?

How long did it take your body to respond to the sex you decided it should be aroused by? And why haven't you been on all the talk shows with your amazing story? You should contact the Guinness people and see if you can get a listing. The first heterosexual who actually decided to be heterosexual despite their obvious attraction to the same sex.

(See logic dictates if you had to choose you had desires for both sexes).

So you don't like the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of freedom of speech? And you're upset that a State who VOTED to accept the U.S. Constitution is the Supreme law of their land, and now can't find a way around it?

Feel free to do what the Pilgrims did. Get on a boat and find someplace you can establish a community based on your fear of free thought. The guy who founded the People's Temple did it. What's stopping you aside from laziness?

The Pilgrims didn't come to America looking for a place to practice homosexuality.

do some history check. The Pilgrims were a fringe group of "freaky Christians" that only had enough money to leave the Dutch Colonies on a broken down ship , which started out as two, with a bunch of sailors, escaping debt/ prison.

Anti-gay laws and social systems that perpetuate prejudice and discrimination as well as the belief being gay is not acceptable and we must make the impossible change to heterosexual or live a life of loneliness and denial of our humanity, are all stigmatizing and dehumanizing. It is that prejudice and dehumanization which motivates self destructive behavior, including suicide.

"The research, published in the January Pediatrics (Vol. 123, No. 1), found that LGB adults who reported high rates of parental rejection in their teens were 8.4 times more likely to report having attempted suicide, 5.9 times more likely to report high levels of depression, 3.4 times more likely to use illegal drugs, and 3.4 times more likely to have had unprotected sex than LGB peers who reported no or low levels of family rejection, reports the study team, headed by Caitlin Ryan, PhD, of San Francisco State University.
"Because families play such a critical role in child and adolescent development, it is not surprising that adverse, punitive and traumatic reactions from parents and caregivers would have such a negative influence on [young people's] risk behaviors and health status as young adults," the authors write.

Preliminary results are promising: "We've seen that families can grow and become more supportive once they've learned how their words, actions and behaviors affect their LGBT children," she says."

"Being lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender is not a risk factor for suicide," Powers emphasized. "Actually, it is the social stigma and discrimination that LGBT youth experience that results in feelings and behaviors which are, in turn, associated with suicidal behavior." The American Association of Suicidology

Around the world, anti-gay prejudice and discrimination continue to cause needless suffering and death.

You're correct. Instead they came here and banned Christmas!
But this has nothing to do with you not wanting to abide by the same laws that are supposed to be applied to everyone.
