Many kids have come home to mom and said I wanna be a gay, can I be a gay. It is called indoctrination and child abuse. Yes, the right way is when mom and ad tell kids "Some people are sick and choose to be gay, you should not pick on them and call them names, because they have mental issues. We are to love them and tell them that God wants them to stop sinning."
How about teaching them: "this is America and we believe in freedom. Sticking your nose in other people's business is ill-mannered and déclassée.

I'm not on welfare and since you are here everyday hourly then that must mean you are on welfare or 'paid' to be here. If the people that belonged in a psych ward weren't occupying so many administrative positions I'd be a wealthy man right now and the Indians would have more of their land back, so you Fkk off.

Evidently you're intellectually impaired if you think "that man puts his plug into the slot" is ome form of homosexual remarks and a result of expensive public education.

I agree we need to turn those away from welfare as a career, but there was no indication of anyone here saying they were on welfare or without a job. Why are you using it as an insult and yet you support the great Obama? Since welfare has been the great obama's selling pitch for votes. And his stimulus plans were for jobs overseas. Or were you asking him to move out of the country?

You wouldn't think it's important if you didn't care.
And you can't come up with a single way gay marriage would affect your rights. You are just looking for an excuse.

I feel the demands of gay people will affect the way government conducts various tax laws that have been written and put into place for a normal and moral society.
You homophobes always talk about taxes as if gay people don't pay them.
Tata wrote:
There is NOTHING preventing any citiizen from marring. You say you are not gay, so why did you search the internet for a place to talk about gay people?? either you are hetero and want to protect you right to uphold the Constitution as it reads or you are gay and want to change its meaning. We all have the same rights
I'm not lying and saying I don't think the issue is important, like you are.
And, I don't have the same rights a man does, I can't marry a woman. A man doesn't have the same rights I do, he can't marry a man. So, you are lying, we don't all have the same rights.

Your explanation of how Adam and Eve were created is typical of an Athiest way of thinking, too bad the majority of Americans in this country agree with how this country was built on a religious platform, regardless of what you say or think. I know your purpose in life is to tear that platform down but my purpose is to keekp it alive.
There will never be a shortage of dumb people like you, I fear. Why can't you keep your Bronze Age beliefs to yourselves? Think it's a "sin" to have gay sex? Don't have any. Then fk off and mind your own business.

Rose's Law...
And you are lying. Gay people don't teach that being gay is an alternative. You are either gay, or you're not.
By 9 I knew I was attracted to boys in a way I wasn't attracted to girls. If someone had told me I could be a lesbian, it wouldn't have done a damn thing. I don't think anything short of hooking my privates up to a car battery and giving me a shock every time I had a (sexual) thought or feeling about a boy could have changed me. And it would more likely have just resulted in scar tissue and a spent battery. I assume it's the same way for gay people, except that the feelings are for the same sex.

No, it's not a good idea for parents to lie like that.
