<quoted text>Wow, can we have a reasonable conversation? Maybe? I agree about the transgender confusion and in fact, medically, before your gay activism got in, the medical community would not assign someone as a different gender until between 18-21, after 2 years of counseling and therapy. That said, what makes you think you can draw the line just south or you and north of transgenders. That is you being discriminatory of them, while calling us discriminatory of you.
Now, explain to me what is the difference between a straight man being a Girl's Scout leader and a lesbian being a Girl's Scout leader Bare in mind, Girl's Scouts are usually between 13 and 17, which makes any attraction homosexual and not pedophilic. That is the same for gay men,they are dealing with homosexual attraction towards boys and not pedophilia.
You said: Penis = boy and vagina = girl. But, you do not see that penis equals goes in vagina and vagina equals penis goes in.
You see, you can not ask the rules to be changed, but then ask that others be discriminated against while claiming you are being discriminated against. You see, I agree that transgenders need to control their hormones and get therapy, because I believe that people who choose to behaviorally be gay need to control their hormones and get therapy.
Convince me why I am wrong.
A persons sexuality isn't conducive to them being a good leader or not but a male oriented organization should have male leaders likewise for a female organization. As far as me being an activist I most certaintly am not. The only thing I am asking for is that Gays be treated the same as straight people and my penis/vagina reference was in the bathroom/lockeroom scenario not any other. Also I am not understanding what your saying by being behaviorally gay wtf does that mean?.

You're Jesus? If not, it takes a hell of a lot of hubris to be speaking on HIS behalf like this.

"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." God will walk away from those Churches that do this as surely as He did the Christians of Rome.

Actually, it is a do unto others thing, because we would not have homosexuality done unto us.
Sweetie, homosexuality isn't being done to ANYONE and if this nonsense is what you are basing your claim on, you and the churches had better pray long and hard for forgiveness. Jesus said he doesn't approve of iniquity carried out in his name.
Believe Truth wrote:
It does however seem that you gays have an issue with that scripture, doing unto others. You want respect from those who disagree with you, but you give NONE.
You're the ones who seem to take issue with scripture, there's nothing like a Christian who won't let the teachings of Jesus get in the way of their Christianity.

No dear, you and your hateful ilk have finally turned the public against you. Taking it out on children because you pray that God hates the gay as much as you chose to.

You gay activists know this, which is why they do not want to try for SSM in Arizona on the 2014 ballot.
I really don't mind breaking this to you dear, but same sex marriages will be coming to Arizona and every other state, with or without an initiative to overturn it. Folks like you are to thank for that.

Even supporters have said no. You gays only want legislative tyranny, while falsely stating that this is what America wants.
Sweetie, the Constitution demands equal protection of our laws, whether you like it or not.

Wait. Your mad because my progressivism may divide people while your conservatism is pushing to divide people into specific bathrooms?

Like I said, part of basic potty training is how to lock the door.

Wow.
Jesus would enjoy the sin of Pride?
homosexual rape fantasies?
Isn't respect supposed to be earned?
The law in AZ that allows for SSM should be put up to vote?

Some forgotten history about voting on civil rights:
SCOTUS Majority opinion:

West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette 1943

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

nature itself divided people into certain bathrooms, not conservatism. you are just simply trying to divide what is natural into complete chaos.
let me ask you a question....where does the line of progressivism end? since every area is grey and the are no absolutes? I am not offended by what people do in the privacy of their bedroom (its not my business),but why take your private matters to the point it infringes on mine? lock what door? will lesbians try to piss in the urinals?

They can only get in your face if you permit them to 'cracker'. Let them talk to thin air and don't let them rattle you. The love attention and if they don't get it they retreat to their bedrooms where the pretend they are normal.

Why should someones sexual preference be an issue to whether or not they are a good leader, I see nothing strange about that.

Too bad I can't let you and your attitude get to me. I was once told not to piss over trash and that is what you apparently are; trash. Until you take accountability and quit blaming others for your life and want something better you will be trash. People such as you rotate in and out of custodial care throughout their lives at the expense of those of us who work and you wonder why we don't care for your company.
Yes, I think you're right about that. But she's gone now.

Referencing the Bible -- Hmmm. Going to church this morning? When one is going to church to worship and be in the presence of God, one can learn a little more above your extremely limited knowledge of the content of the Bible other than to do unto others. You should give it a try this morning.

I don't think I've ever seen one. And we're it only from a large city, but we've moved a lot because of the military. I've seen family bathrooms, but never unisex.
