Lockheed Martin wants the Boy Scouts to start allowing homosexual men to be in charge of leading young boys. Shame on you Lockheed Martin!
Exactly and we also should ban every heterosexual male from leading young girls so no more male teachers, no more male Olympic trainers, pediatric male doctors and all others professions. Also we should definitively ban any heterosexual female from leading young man: let's man female teachers and female Olympic trainers, pediatric female doctors and all others!!! If fact, the best thing would be to invent intelligent asexual robots that would lead our young boys and young girls!!!

Sort of like the lie that the supporters of Duck Dynasty are telling? That his freedom of speech has been violated?

I have to ask how his freedom of speech has been impaired since his comments have been in the news for a week now.

When you say something and a nutcase organization like GLAAD does everything in their power to hurt you in the worst way possible then that's violating his freedom of speech. GLAAD did this to show people that if they don't think gay is everything right about America we will be out to get you. They want to quiet people from speaking their mind in the future. Not much different than the gay groups that want to get hold of elementary school kids and teach them that gay is the way. UnAmerican is a kind way of putting it.

But of course it's perfectly OK if groups like Focus on Family, NOM and all these other groups do everything in their power to do just what you accuse GLADD of doing.

How come you are OK with ministers in Indiana being denied their free speech under the State ban on SSM, not to mentioned their freedom to practice their religion.

Your hypocrisy is showing again.

The protection of free speech applies only to the Government trying to silence someone. As for GLADD silencing people that's a laugh too for the very same reason I pointed out the idiocy you embraced over Duck Dynasty. In fact when GLADD does speak out it helps spread the very words you claim are being silenced..

Maybe you need to lay off the eggnog for a few years.

GLAAD never defamed Christians, only attacked the outright bigotry of the sick subset of sexually ill fundies.

GLAAD never said fundies idiots can't marry, adopt, serve openly.

GLAAD never said this about our homegrown terrorists, our xstain mullahs:

"They received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions.  They’re full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil."

It is the rankest form of anti rationality when these theocrats are allowed to equate what GLAAD does regarding un Christian bigots with what all those fundierai$ing scam organizations do regarding glbt people.

The problem with bigotry is that it makes bigots blind to their own foolishness and hypocrisy.

As a gay man and a Christian I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

As I have often pointed out, these anti-gay holy rollers don't want to face the fact that they are denying ministers in Indiana the right of free speech and the right to freely practice their religion.

In Indiana (since 1997) it has been a crime punishable by 180 days in jail and a $1000 fine if they bless a Same Sex Union.

Fundie hypocrisy at its best.

Thanks. Merry Christmas to you, since it is an important, albeit incorrect date in your tradition....(I couldn't help myself!)

I enjoyed an Anglican service with nine readings and nine choral pieces earlier (carols,) and will go back for more just before midnight. I was raised Episcopalian, though, so the goings on there are a little unfamiliar to me. Also, I am clearly an agnostic at this point.

Oh trust me I know Christmas is symbolic of the birth not the actuality of it. Oh and my self definition as "Christian" doesn't sit well with most folks of the thumping variety.

Glad you enjoyed the services. If you're ever in Balt. MD check out the church on lower Charles Street that features Evensong.

Though I'm a member of a church up the street from there (1st U.U. of Balt) I enjoyed many visits to that other church.

In fact I usually was at U.U Christmas Eve for the family Carols and Service then up to Sts. Philip & James for Midnight Mass.

(Yes Fa Foxy I enjoy a good Catholic High Mass at Christmas! Get over it.)

oops

Merry Christmas all.

O.K. Let's forget the media and organizations and talk about how some heterosexual people outside your cozy little sewing circle feel. How about a 32 year Military vet (retired just a few years ago). A republican conservative and gun rights guy. Just had his second heart valve surgery from what he picked up making sure freedom of speech was protected.
My little brother.

Just left him from Facebook and he had this to say about this story I shared (we were exchanging christmas greetings)

Here is his view
"He should have made sure his brain was in gear before his mouth was put in motion. Freedom of speech or not, he is still a dumb ass for making honey boo boo look good."

Not sure you really live there if you think the UK is ALMOST as good as the US. The UK is FAR more progressive on LGBT issues than the US.
In the UK discrimination protections and anti-harassment protections are already in place. Gay marriage in legal and benefits are extended across the board to LGBT couples.
Seems to me you, like Ivan - another troll on here, should more somewhere more in line with your views..like Russia...or Angola.
No, the US is far more progressive than the UK. We even added a new letter to the end of the LGBT acronym. Here we've started saying LGBTQ.

Japan must build full Shinkansen standard all over Japan now!
Japan must build Shinkansen (or the New Truck Train, or Shinkansen bullet train) all over Japan now!

Japan must build linear motor car (mag-lev, or maglev train, or magnetic levitated train) all over Japan now!

Japan must expand its domestic-demand now!

Japan must not export its products to our America!
The U.S. must stop importing products from foreign-countries!

And, so, both American-Republican-Party nad American-Democratic-Party are useless-stupid-idiots!

Decreaseing American-military-budget and contracting America's domestic-demand are required for our America!

American-Republican-Party must decrease America's military-budget now!
American-Democratic-Party must contract America's domestic-demand now!
Both American-Republican-Party nad American-Democratic-Party are useless-stupid-idiots!
Youy must fire both American-Republican-Party nad American-Democratic-Party now!

We are American-99%! I love the U.S.! I love Americans!
