I guess worrying about rights for gays is more important than getting jobs, fixing the economy, taking care of the fiscal cliff, bombing people with drones, bullshiting about Benghazi or dealing with the 50% of the nation that wants the man OUT of office.

Still, he got to spend the afternoon with Tiger Woods so that was a plus. What a loser.

According to you people there will never be a good time for gay rights. Just because they took a few minutes to stand up for gay rights isn't taking a whole lot of time away from the economic issues. The gay rights organizations are fighting for rights more than any branch of the government so don't worry the economy is not on the backburner. The diversion tactic you are using is quite overused.

How is denying gays their right to marry going to promote or prevent any of what you describe? Gay people exist and deserve to do the same things you take for granted. Get over it! They wouldn't teach anything inappropriate for one's age level.

Teaching kids about homosexuality would not be appropriate at any age level.

That is your opinion. Kids are not stupid, they know gay people exist. Bullying against gays in school should be prevent.

Typical gay thinking.
Who said kids are stupid?
Who said gay people don't exist?
Who said bullying is OK?

Or were you responding to the wrong post?

Then don't teach kids about heterosexuality either or that that is acceptable or sex period. Leave it completely up to the parents. Who are you to say what is or is not acceptable? Being gay is not a crime nor a mental illness so you can't tell a child that because they are born gay they are not acceptable. Get lost!

Being gay is too a mental disease, look into every gay person's history and you will find a child molested, by an uncle, a brother, a father, etc like clock work and for the ones who said it never happen, they are in denial.

There aren't any such inherent dangers, so it would be a 20 second class. Now, if you are saying that children should be taught how to handle sex responsibly, then that would apply to all children.

Every respected medical and mental-health organization on the planet disagrees with you. I'll gladly take their scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed word for it over the word of a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthal bigot like you any old day of the week, boy.
