I agree with you. Let's get rid of all those churches and organized religion. All they do is ask for special benefits and protections for a lifestyle choice that is damaging and immoral. Not to mention that they don't pay taxes like good, upstanding straight and gay citizens. Let's raze 'em to the ground and put up a Starbucks. At least we'll get some tax money from them as well as a fierce frappacino!!

If you can explain why you lie about your name with every single posting you make. Or why you think you your opinion has any validity whatsoever.

Yes I can

Because nobody should be discriminated against in housing or jobs for any reason. Period.

And if people allow their hatred and bigotry to overwhelm the better angels of their nature then I guess we are left having to legislate good behavior much in the same way we need to protect African American folks from the bigotry and hatred and terrible behavior inflicted on them and that they suffered for decades in this country.

If you can't control your hate, you force us to force you to control it.

Only bisexuals can 'choose' to fall in love with another adult regardless of sex
.
We're not fighting for full benefits and protections for bisexuals
.
Bisexuals already have full benefits and protections; just like pedophiles; necrophiliacs; and you

Can anyone explain why you keep LYING, DAVID MOORE of Pekin,Illinois?

And, you are a horrible speller also. "Discriminatory", please,not the stupid way you spelled it...and just WHAT are "protedctions"?

"Choic"? Golly, a liar and stupid, you aren't making many points here, DAVID.

Because it is morally wrong to persecute and abuse people just because you don't agree with a choice they have made. Oh, but I bet you consider yourself a Christian too. Oh and by the way how is another person's sexual orientation able to damage you? The last time I checked, hate was far more damaging and immoral than being gay. You don't get to call yourself "damaged" just because you don't get to have your own way in everything.

Oh and some facts on Pocatello, Idaho

No diversity - 90.5% white
low median incomes
only 30% of it's population have an education beyond high school. These facts represent the culturally impaired mindset of region. Not surprised they voted to reject it.

Idaho. It's the land of misfits and anti social types, a more southern version of Alaska. Mark Fuhrman, from the OJ Simpson fiasco, moved out there after his terrible legal troubles. My serial killer..some day...sibling wants to move there so he can buy and keep even MORE guns. If you are EVER in McDonald's and a really tall REALLY skinny creepy guy with terrible comb over enters, LEAVE immediately.

No surprise at them being a bit behind the times.

Why Snyper? the guy is horrible. I know it's not much better than he is but, we've all tried being reasonable and talking to him. The only thing he has left us with is to fight fire with fire. I for one would like to see him banned from here and only hope ill will.

Direct threats of violence, or suggestions about suicide are THEIR gig.

It's not what WE do.

DAVID MOORE from Pekin IL, quit spamming the boards. We all know that it's YOU, and that you desperately need psychological help.
