BS!!!!

More special provisions and benefits for queers!

What about a man and woman who live together? Do they get benefits? NO!

The man and a woman who live together have always had the option of marrying in order to be eligible for those benefits, if they don't, they have no one to blame but themselves.

That's not equality, it's special laws.

Allowing straights to marry but not gays amounts to special rights for heterosexuals. Not very good at simple logic, are you?

This is what boggles my mind about the antigay logic; and I have come to believe firmly and intractably that the antigay are actually lying. I have come to believe, in fact, that the antigay *know full well* they're wrong and simply lie and lie about it, all the time.

By their logic, if you are in a line with 20 other people, and each of you receives a form to fill out, you can claim that two random people in the line got "special treatment" for receiving the SAME FORM as everyone else. If you're at a birthday party and each child gets a piece of cake, antigay logic says one child got "special treatment" for receiving the same piece of cake as every other child.

A brainless dolt would see through this illogic in less than two seconds.

Thank you for your post.

Every person has the right to marry a person of the opposite sex. This is equality.

Anything else is making up special rules to appease a minority of perverts.

If you think that a same sex couple in a line with nine other straight couples is a 'random couple' you are a brainless dolt.

Remember back in grade school, they used to show you 3 or 4 sets of items and ask you which one didn't fit?

We fill out the same form here in Massachusetts too, but they had to change it to pander to gay couples. It used to say "bride" and "groom." Now it says "party 1" and "party 2."

Just what special benefits are you referring to regarding gays getting equal benefits to straights? Just what do we gain that you do not already have?

WOW, how weird, I saw right through what you're doing in two seconds or fewer.

Unimpressed. You haven't helped the case against the antigay, who appear to be lying all the time.

Please, don't talk to me about this senseless horse shit. Go share it with people who'll be likelier to fall for it. I don't.

Mind-blowing.

I wonder who reading this will feel their jaw drop when they wonder how on earth all heterosexuals are "perverts" -- a word which has become categorically meaningless, by the way, because it is so overused by those attempting to browbeat others into going against their inborn orientation.

I think it's best to remain silent more often, though. By now, the antigay are *winning pro-gay victories FOR the pro-gay*, as anyone can see by recent gay rights gains, because what they are saying has FINALLY been identified by the majority as jaw-dropping bigotry and hatred.

In other words, allowing the antigay to keep speaking HELPS the pro-gay cause immeasurably and ceaselessly.

Ya gotta love it.

Have you shared with your wife your obsession about commenting on gay threads? What does she think of all the time you spend here? Has she ever suggested that you spend more time with your own family instead of denigrating others' families?

1. Trying to teach you what random means is probably senseless, you're gay, you have your own weird sense of what is normal.

The people here (like the one you address) are either weak minds which have been indoctrinated like puppets or else latently gay. Otherwise, the issue would not concern them, period. They seek this forum out regularly. I do apologize for stating something *SO* obvious, but once the antigay get involved, everything has to go to a second-grade level.

I was in the midst of diagramming the illogic throughout this post and decided to leave it for those who will see its subterfuge at once. You've committed several "errors" here, so to speak, that identify you as antigay.

For some weird reason, though, I took this post in good humor. ESPECIALLY if you were someone I knew to be trolling, I would probably have reacted with goodwill.

Anyone that cannot tolerate the natural and normal functions of their own body is a bigot and sends a message of hatred to the opposite sex for such intolerance. The tax code should be done away with for a very good reason. Take the zionist run federal reserve bank with you.

It's called denial. They know they don't make logical sense but they deny logic as being relevant to them. The same is true of religious fanatics (and some ultra-religious folks who are not fanatics) regardless of whether of not they are homophobic.
