As it should be.
Spreading evil and lies about your perverted lifestyle is disgusting and pathetic

Youre not going to make us the bad guys...YOURE the ones that are evil not us.

Nice try, though.

The 14th amendment was created for blacks and slavery it has absolutely nothing to do with Homosexuality. Everyone has equal protection under the Constitution, homos want special protection, special rights, special laws to accommodate their CHOSEN lifestyle.
MY party will fight to strengthen and maintain the traditional family which is the foundation of our country.
Go ahead and strengthen the traditional family if you can.

That has nothing to do with gay marriage. The two exist side by side, no problem. Unless you want to create a problem.

Simple equality is not "special rights."

Being gay is not chosen.(Religion is, btw.)

Being gay is not a lifestyle.

You need to educate yourself before participating in this discussion. We don't have time to teach you the basics.

How would you know ANYTHING about my lifestyle - you have never met me.

I can tell you what it is, though. I'm a spouse, a karate Mom, and a Christian who is active in my church.

How is that lifestyle any different form anyone else you know? How is it "evil"? How is it "disgusting"?

If you pretend to know more than you do, and use that lack of knowledge to harm other people and other families, then, yes, by definition, you ARE the bad guy.

Are gay people trying to deny you the right to marry? Do we call every straight person evil and disgusting simply because we don't feel the same attraction to the opposite gender that they do?

Of course not, but you would make US the bad guys.

My Dear, because of your ignorance and the harm to others that is your goal, you ARE the bad guy.

But anyone can change, if they choose.

It's not a game for most folks. It's about life.

If ALL gay people are the bad guys, explain and prove, in detail, what I do that is bad. How does my life and my family harm you and yours?

If all of us are guilty of the same imagined sins, can you tell us what mine are?

Or, are you just projecting your own lack of knowledge and insecurities on people you will never meet?

First you would have to prove that simply being gay is dangerous in any way.

Good luck with that one.

People, gay and straight, can engage in a million dangerous behaviors, even criminal ones. They can also engage in a million beneficial and positive behaviors.

But there is NO inherent danger in anyone's sexual orientation.

To say so just makes a person sound ridiculous, and we just can't afford to have silly elected leaders.

One of the worst things in the world is when a gay tries to justify his/her behavior. Trying to convince people this should be considered normal, acceptable behavior and it should be embraced ...that's truly evil..

PURE EVIL.

I guess you don't.
You think the Democrats care about you? They just want your campaign donations, stupid. Why doesn't Obama have any gays in his administration?

"justify" is essentially a protestant obsession, not shared by other sects and definitely not by gay people. Outside a religious context it has only to do with accounting matters. That is really not one of our problems, either.

Care to try a different word?
