You were "told" .... stop watching Glenn Beck and listening to Limbaugh, they're about as accurate as a 7 dollar bill.

Is that what someone ELSE told you? Do you have any ORIGINAL thoughts? What else did these people tell you?

Stop listening to liars who have no experience in what they speak of. Get out of the house and MEET some real gay people, before you slander them so gleefully.

"I was told you do that constantly". How lame. I was told you rape and murder children constantly, and then blame your crimes on gay people. Must be true! I heard it from a mysterious source that can't be verified!

Yeah, so? Being part of the 1% of the population that has no sex drive, desire, or attraction does not actually make me a "freak" though. What does? The fact that I hate being average in everything else.

But wait, there's more...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_among_LG...
[..Numerous studies have shown that lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth have a higher rate of suicide attempts than do heterosexual youth. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center synthesized these studies and estimated that between 30 and 40% of LGBT youth, depending on age and sex groups, have attempted suicide.[5] A U.S. government study, titled Report of the Secretary's Task Force on Youth Suicide, published in 1989, found that LGBT youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide than other young people.[6] This higher prevalence of suicidal ideation and overall mental health problems among gay teenagers compared to their heterosexual peers has been attributed to Minority Stress.[7][8] "More than 34,000 people die by suicide each year," making it "the third leading cause of death among 15 to 24 year olds with lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth attempting suicide up to four times more than their heterosexual peers."..]

Yes dear, lesbian and gay youth are more likely to consider, attempt and commit suicide than their straight counterparts and having to deal with such wonderful, considerate, loving, wise and insightful folk like you is the reason why. You should be so proud. But these facts have absolutely nothing relevant to say about the happiness of the children of the folk who didn't let your toxicity stop them.

Gullible. Slanderer.

It's good to know that our opponents are as rare, barbaric and foolish as you. You're a LOUD minority, that's for sure, but you're an increasingly irrelevent one.

All I did was provide a link to an article citing results from a widely accepted research study. I didn't even comment one way or ther other on it.

Keep believing that. It'll make it easier for you. And us.

Keep watching one state after another turn toward justice. Keep watching one developed nation after another do the same. You're going to be increasingly more comfortable in places like Iran, Sudan, or Uganda, where human rights are handed out on the edge of a machete.

We don't do things like that here. And we don't base public policy on the lies that "someone" told you. Educated, respectable, accredited individuals and organizations are telling a different story from yours. The only people left who will be taking YOU seriously are probably already in your pick-up.

Since the reality is that it has absolutely nothing to do with the subject at hand, you shouldn't be surprised when your motives for doing so become suspect. We are talking about the happiness of children raised by parents who are lesbian and gay and you chime in with your Wikipedia quote about suicides among lesbians and gay youth as being a point in that discussion.

Go back to childish spits of invective, you're less annoying that way than the alternative of self-pitying whines totally devoid of substance.

Not so. You Queers are putting pressure on politicians, basically blackmailing them, to endorse your perversion or be labeled as a bigot or homophobe.
Is that what your mysterious "someone" told you?

You don't have the right to voice your own opinion or beliefs in regards to homosexuality without repercussions.
And what "repercussions" would you like to see? Imprisonment? Torture? Death?

That is not the freedom of speech or freedom of choice.
Is someone trying to force you to be gay? Is someone trying to force you to marry someone you don't love? I'm sure your freedoms have not been affected in any way.

There's still some that's not afraid to stand up for their beliefs.
What "beliefs" are they standing up for? Some trumped-up belief that they can control the lives of others? Do they believe that the pursuit of happiness is only for people of the right religion, or the right sexual orientation? These aren't defensible beliefs.

I doubt you ever see it in your life time. But keep hoping.
My partner and I will be getting married next May. I'm not too worried about your baseless fearmongering.

You shouldn't be worried about it either. You're getting yourself worked into a tizzy over something that has nothing to do with you. Calm down, marry who you want, and stop obsessing over those who are different from you.

I don't think their parents sexual orientation really has anything to do with it, but I do wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that a set of gay parents would be less likely (if at all) to teach hatred to the kids. My kids are perfectly happy and their parents are a hetero couple.

I think it also has to deal with how gay parents are way more likely to plan for their kids in advanced.
