<quoted text>I really don't mind jumping the plot on you like this, but that supposed re-socialization we supposedly needed to do has already, largely taken place. As more and more of those who happen to be Lesbian or Gay, but just don't resemble any of the myriad of stereotypes used against us of the bogeyman that we're supposed to be frightened of, come out in the open, the more and more people come to see that what they have done to protect themselves against those bogeyman has do to those who aren't the monsters they were led to believe. <quoted text>They had to be geniuses to know that those opposed to rights for those who are not "straight" were going to lay their hands on their out of print, far from best selling, gay specific marketing text book and bring it back to life. Hallelujah. I'm laying even money that you haven't actually read, "After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's", it's based on what was already a tried and true marketing strategy of how to combat popularly held misconceptions with the truth. Every group in this country which had to battle other very popularly held misconceptions about them in order to secure rights as a citizen have used it in one form or another. It read in 1989 like a series of tell us something we didn't already know for ourselves moments, now it's a 23 year old series of things that make you go duh.
<quoted text>Spaketh the shepherd telling us that the Christians have the human right to give into the natural tendency to be an assh*le unto one another, extends to their special right to give the finger to civil laws designed to prevent such mean spirited behavior in the public square, because God says so.
That what is wholesome and what is indecent engraving you are talking about must not be that deep or there isn't one and only one engraving going on and you are talking about something that you really aren't sharing with everyone else.
<quoted text>The anti-gay rights movement would benefit from an equation that men had no ability to use their intellect and utilize logic, instead you are inflaming their "spirit" and frightening with the figments of your sad imagination. That is why, in the end, you will lose.
<quoted text>But as that number of people too ashamed to admit they've been taken in by the ramblings of bigots decreases, that margin gets smaller and smaller, bringing us to a year where on the states level anyways, the anti-gay rights movement could very well lose all four votes they have forced and maybe right in here in Salina.
<quoted text>The alleged virtue of your twisted fight for the right to be our oppressor, because God says you can, can only be verbalized in the terms of a lie. Not with "common sense", "spirituality" nor with rational informed judgement.
A few posts earlier, I asked that mean-spirited person not to be so nasty as to stoop to their level. Well, in this post you just demonstrated clearly what "their level" is. You patronize, you character-assassinate, passive aggressiveness condescending, dark sarcasm, vitriol-levelling, and just a wide range of tactics intended to smear someone abusively - that's you, that's all gay activists. Anything and everything to avoid articulating the rightiousness of your plight. You know the People aren't for your lifestyle. No population in history has ever been, not until two marketing geniouses got ahold of it and crafted a playbook to sell it.(and btw, you just shot yourself in the foot - in your witch hunt to demonize me and dismiss my points, you spoke dismissively about Kirk and Madsen. The ENTIRE gay movement is where it's at because of them).

You won't ever participate in civilized discourse, because you know deep down what your selling.

Promoting and embellishing the virtues of homosexuality is like, finding an old, rotted-out couch, re-upholstering it, and then bragging to everyone what a nice looking couch you have. Same deal.

Sweetie, you are here to demand the right to be my oppressor, because you say God is down with it. You were expecting perhaps for me to smile and say thank you? I'm sorry that you don't agree with me, but I think I've summed up the righteousness of the plight we face from the likes of you quite nicely, thank you very much.

I notice you chose not to even attempt to refute one word of what I had to say, all you had to offer was your annoying little whine that I was being bitchy about what you are advocating. I don't wonder why, but I wonder if you do?

What "man" would describe himself as bitchy? A gay "man" who catches instead of pitches. You worthless buttf$$k#r.
Sweetie, I really didn't need any further proof of not only the rightness, but the righteousness of what I have been saying here. Another venomous ejaculation from you really wasn't necessary, besides, you can't even come up with original childish insults.
