Only now that she's safely past her primary race.

Too bad she didn't have the courage to come out when her support might have actually mattered.

But better latent than never...

supports sodomy
Sodomy hasn't been a legal issue for about a decade, nor one anyone with a mind cared about for the preceding half a century.

What a revelation that you're obsessed with it.

Now go rail against heterosexual newlyweds who engage in oral and anal sex.(After all, they should be on the down low for their sodomy, like you.)

Are you referring to the tens of millions of deaths from AIDS amongst heterosexuals via heterosexual intercourse, Jedediah?

When you have your downlow "slips" are you using condoms for your anal intercourse?

Well adjusted heterosexuals just aren't so captivated by (outwardly) inveighing against male homosexuality.

Oh great, Then you're admitting the problem is only "radical homosexuals." Like the overwhelming majority of Americans you have no problem with "non radical homosexuals."

Except you do and everything you say is a lie stemming from nothing other than your own, internal sexual conflicts.

Marriage is not "based" on sodomy any more than it's based on missionary position or any other specific sexual practices. Nor is it based solely on opposite gender couples. Marriage is based on a loving committed relationship between twi people. It's not necessary to be married to have a sexual relationship.

I suspect you already understand that at some level, but your homophobia causes you to be preoccupied to the point of obsession with homosexuality. Your soul is even further tormented by combining your homophobia with your racism and hatred of anyone who's political persuasion is not as extremely right fringe as your own.

We have at least one tea partier here on Topix who periodically challenges us who are more progressive to cite at least one example of tea partiers writing posts that are homophobic or racist. You've emerged not only to serve in that capacity, but as your cause's poster child.

You changed the subject from you hilarious slip that only "radical homosexuals" upset you.

(Actually it's only homosexuals with penises who upset you...and we know why that is.)

<quoted text>You're quite good, using all the tactics that you've been taught. Target, isolate and ridicule. Unfortunately, I don't give a shit about Saul Alinsky' s well worn "rules." In your crazed, furtive mind, everyone who doesn't agree with your homosexual lifestyle, or your deviant sexual practices, are "tea partiers?" That make no sense, since the Tea Party has to do with taxes and spending, not social issues. Perhaps you should ask your handlers to explain that to you, so in the future you don't come off as a total idiot. Glad I could help, sweet bottoms.
You completely misunderstand my post. If you read it again, you’ll note that it correctively addresses the relationship between sex practices, gender relationships and the institution of marriage — the main point being that they’re actually three separate (i.e., independent, unrelated, as in orthogonal) matters. You’ll also note that I generously give you credit for at least hopefully understanding these realities at some level and even offer as an excuse for your “oversight” some possibly deeply-seated values driving your apparent hatred of those with whose sexual and racial politics you disagree.

Based on their posts in Topix discussions, tea partiers define their broad political position by more than an economic “theory” espousing absolute austerity by also avidly advocating badgering the President, paralyzing government, terminating socialistic social benefits programs, standing in opposition to the equality concerns of women and minorities such as GLBT, Hispanic and African Americans.

To the extent that I may actually be “quite good”(i.e., talented), I must give full credit to good luck as well as some hard work on my own part — loving parents who instilled in me the value that all people are born with certain inalienable rights and a broad formal education that instilled within me with the ability to keep an open mind and exercise logic and the scientific method in my quest to understand the shape of the universe. That is to say that my “handlers” are internal and I eschew reciting scripts and repeating clichés.

Since I wasn’t familiar with Saul Alinsky, I researched him at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky ,
where I learned he was an American community organizer and writer, often noted for his book “Rules for Radicals,” and generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. Apparently, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton may have been influenced by his views.

While I don’t believe my having voiced disagreement with you warrants the personal attack that you launched, I do stand corrected for sometimes ridiculing people for taking stands when I believe they’re capable of knowing better. However, I don’t make a practice of teasing those whom I believe incapable of knowing better, regardless of reason. Please accept my apology if I’ve overestimated your ability.

I find your rhetoric demeaning. You apparently believe that issuing a stream of insults refutes the positions that I've presented.

<<I don't think so.>>
Nor do I, LRDII — whatever you may believe about my sexuality is completely unrelated to your religion. While it would behoove you to struggle to understand the personal connection belying your religion and your sexual concerns, only the feelings you harbor about your own sexuality could possibly threaten to trump your religious convictions.

I now understand that you may have a fairly limited range of tools with which to work at your disposal, which must be extremely frustrating yet all the more reason that you'd be well advised to redirect the focus of all your charm inwardly despite the limited prospect of insight that defines your own "ilk" since you pretty clearly have nothing of value to offer the capable people who define mine.

I'd like to leave you with a thought as my parting gift: Your freedom, like your rights, is inalienable.
