Everyone knows gay marriage is wrong and immoral....you don't need to have a perfect marriage record to know that....you just need a FUNCTIONING BRAIN.
Get it now, dummy??
Everybody?

Really? Everybody??

Hmmmm, seems you slept through the 2012 election where the majority of voters in 3 states approved marriage equaltiy for same-sex couples.

Once again the facts demonstrate your absolute stupidity.

The ONLY people in "utter shock and disbelief" were the few ignorant Teabaggers like yourself & Rush Limbaugh & Karl Rove.

Once again the facts demonstrate what a complete moron you are.

Maybe that's because the military is NOT about your sexuality. So maybe you should stfu and serve or end up in an institution like you should be.

So all those hetero servicemembers should just STFU as well and quit demanding medical care & housing & benefits for their spouse & children.

oh wow, less than 1% ahahahaha
maybe in another 300 years you'll get one more state to join ya!
hahahah
Of course the fact is we won by at least a 52%-48% margin each of those states when you once again claimed we would NEVER win in ANY state. And they comprise 6% of all states containing 4% of the population.

Add those 3 to the other 6 states we already had gives us 18% of the states containing about 18% of the population.

Illinois, Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii, & Minnesota are all on track to pass marriage equality this year as well. That gives us over a quarter of all states containing over a quarter of the population of the US.

See which way this is going?

Once again the FACTS prove your prognosticating abilities SUCK!

I like to keep things simple. Billions of people find it repulsive when two men engage in a wet kiss, normal reaction. A man and a woman engaging in such behavior is supported and championed by the masses, Again, normal.
Homosexuality is similar to incest in that two men of the ss are physically brothers, and two women are physically sisters.
At least when a true brother and sister engage in said acts they have the plumbing right, but it still is wrong, very wrong. There are many things in this world that people do that feels good and is not only wrong but unnatural, unhealthy, and morally unsound. You must champion and honor your own mother and father's original intentions and sadly you have failed. Just like our govt.
How is this for keeping things simple:

Normal is a setting on a dryer, nothing more.

What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.

You know nothing of my mother or father or the causes I 'must' champion.

I live by three simple edicts:
1) To fight in only just battles

2) To be merciful at all times

3) To put the affairs of ladies foremost.

My mother and father raised me to see everybody as equals and to not judge people based on race, creed, or orientation. I have worked with and for people of all stripes and I have friends and acquaintances that are homosexual, bi-sexual, trans-sexual and if you want to play that game, I guess it has influenced me a great deal...it has made me a person with a broader scope of the human condition and not some hate filled homophobic voyeur who gets their kicks out of wondering or worrying about what grown adults do in their own homes and who thinks that the only sex is the missionary position in a darkened room.

So in this particular instance I think my mother and father would be very proud of their son and I can rest at night knowing that I did not fail them.

Here's a thought for you, if two grown men engaging in a wet kiss makes you sick don't watch. But I'll bet you think it is rather erotic and get quite turned on when you watch two grown women engage in the same action.

You stupid lDIOT, that's because the percentage of Queers in the military is about 1% to 99% of Heteros. You Fa$$ots really are ignorant.
And yet, people like you seem to think that ONLY gay people contract sexually transmitted diseases from unprotected sex.

Such diseases don't really care about sexual orientation at all. A gay man who is monogamous is NO MORE LIKELY to contract any STD than a straight monogamous man.

It's not about orientation, but behaviors. Behaviors that ALL people can engage in, gay or straight.

Support people engaging in sexual activity only after taking every logical protection? Like monogamy?

Then you support the military recognizing the marriages of its gay servicemen and women, right?

Of course you don't.

So the real danger to the troops comes from the heteros.

They used to say that same crap argument to try and stop interracial marriages from becoming legal. It didn't work then and it's not working now.

If you have a negative reaction towards same-sex displays of affection that you would consider normal for heterosexual couples then perhaps you should see a psychiatrist. You have a phobia. You're sick, just like racist people are sick.

Why do a take off on another poster's handle here on Topix? Too afraid to state your garbage under your own?

Or maybe it's just that you are too ignorant to think for yourself.

So let me get this straight (no pun intended) if a guy and a gal meet at a bar, like each other and go have sex that involves whips, riding crops and bondage for one night and one night only it's not lust, excess, or perversion because it involved a man and a woman?
But because it may involve two consenting adults of the same sex that whole scenario suddenly becomes perverted, excessive and lustful?

Topix routinely attempts to block trolls. And the trolling posts of yours that slip by the Topix admins really don't help the anti-gay cause so please, keep posting!
