The only thing I demand is equality for everyone under the sun, and that does not make me a bigot. You may want to look the word up in the dictionary. The man going on a hunger strike is doing so to make sure other people don't share the same rights he enjoys under the law. That is extremely bigoted and stems from hate. Much like your reply...

You and he are certainly entitled to your beliefs but you are not entitled to inflict them on others, and denying them rights and privileges you have, setting yourself up as superior. It is never going to effect you one way or another if someone else can get married. To claim it does just shows an extreme lack of intelligence and wisdom...

The latest headline:

"The Utah man who vowed to starve himself until his state nullified a judge’s ruling striking down a gay marriage ban is eating again. Next time, he’s giving up football."

Let it be noted, the ruling wasn't reversed, which is what he said was necessary before he would start eating again, things were put on hold. But hey, if he doesn't get his way after things start moving forward again, he's willing to give up football?! What a flippant way to say, "I was never really serious in the first place. I just wanted attention for my bigotry..."

Just like a three year old holding his breath until he gets his way...

The poor deluded guy can't distinguish between Gandhi's hunger strikes for MORE Justice, MORE non-violence, MORE inclusion of all, MORE peace, and his wish to limit others in all these areas.

I'm glad he's eating again.

Let's all send him gift certificates to Chick-fil-a.

He ordered pizza, or one of his fans sent him one when he asked. For that they go to Domino's, Ave Maria.

Actually he had a yogurt and posed for the picture. He went back on everything he started in this so called mission from God. I have no respect for him.

I have to say, at least you chose an appropriate screen name. "Sneaky" has a connotation of deception, and "Pete" is short for "Peter" guess what that refers to...

After selecting that name you put up a picture of Clint Eastwood instead of yourself there just doesn't seem to be anything respectable about you...

"Sneaky Pete" translates to "Dishonest Dick"

The funniest part is he's probably just in the closet. "Me thinks thou dost protest too much." Hopefully, he'll learn, or at least learn to stop telling others they have to agree with him or go to hell...

Probably too much to ask for...

Funny how they think WE should be always so tolerant of them telling us daily that their religious beliefs have some say in the laws of this Country and that their way is the ONLY way.......well, I'm fairly tolerant of their right to post their opinion, but that's ALL it is......their OPINION and NOTHING else!!!

Have a great day:-)

Right!

When will they understand that I'm the continental dominion (though currently on extended vacation in Ireland), and it's MY opinion that matters, and is the only one that does.

So there.
