If Jay-zus were real, these people would be suffering in another place in the future for the sin of hypocrisy.

What would the fundies do if they had nothing to whine about? They certainly don't want to focus on their own shortcomings.

Only the anti-gay christians will "suffer", the rest will be just fine.

Life sucks when you're a bigot!

Btw, is it just me, or does he strike anyone else as a major closet case?

I could not care less about the Christians.

Stop trying to take away my rights and I'm happy to let you live in the 1st or 2nd century.

However, try to impose those 1st century ideals into 21st century society and I have no problem feeding you to the political lions.

Be backward if you want to, no skin off my ass. The rest of us will happily move froward without you.

Yes, they will suffer, just like the Catholics suffered when they were forced to accept things when divorce was legally recognized.

Wait -- Catholics weren't forced to accept divorce. And they certainly didn't suffer when divorce was legally permitted in secular society.

Nor do they practice what Jesus supposedly told them to do. Feed the poor ...house the homeless ...comfort the sick.

I guess those activities don't pay for their mansions and private jets.

They'll face the humiliation of lack luster weddings in comparison. People told me over and over that my same sex wedding/reception was the best they've ever been to.

Well, here in the civilized North, the suffering has been endless. Just look at how unhappy people are here. I mean it's relentless, the amount of repressed Christians who have been forced to share a country with such immoral beings.
Why, oh why didn't we see this coming?
I hear countries like Argentina, Portugal, Denmark and Sweden are in even worse shape. How could they be led to such a devious path?
I hope you Americans will take heed and stop this before it's too late. Put your trust in the Lord.

These folks will find ANY way to make themselves feel better.......take a look at this from Radio Fox News:

But Christians are being persecuted by Government now. All our Constitutional rights are being abridged by queers from the government.
Queers run the crooked government.
Typical.

How about a laundry list of specifics with supporting links?

While you're busy compiling it, how about sharing with us which of YOUR Constitutional Rights is being/has been abridged.
