"According to The Daily Herald a Christian legal group sent the college a letter about Professor Linda Brunton's psychology class assignment. The Alliance Defending Freedom said students complained to the group."

Homosexuals don't want equal rights. Homosexuals want preferential rights and privilege.

This proves it.

Oops. This was an assignment students could do for extra credit, NOT a required project. The ADF went off half-cocked again.

Gays want Title 7. Gays have asked Congress to be included as a "protected group" the same as African Americans. Fortunately Congress has, so far, said, NO!

Now try and tell me that is not preferential rights and privilege.

But true. Just because you disagree with someone is no reason to name call. But it seems to happen when someone is not capable of debate.

Well, if these things are "special rights", then why are they not sought by straight people, to? Could it be because they aren't so special if you have to be discriminated against in the first place, to want those protections?

Is it "preferential" to demand that a group be treated just as every American should be? Is it a "special right" to not be fired or evicted ONLY because of your orientation?

Straight folks are never fired for orientation, are they? Seems like that's a "special right". Gay folks want the SAME thing, and if it takes a few laws to do that, that's what will happen.

You can't whine that minorities are using the legal system to ensure that they are treated equally. That equality is not a "special right", it's a guarantee.

No, dear, those are the rights that come along with a marriage license, and those are the same for gay and straight folks.

Yep.....wanting to be treated like human beings is demanding special treatment. LOL! Your past anti gay comments proves you're nothing but a bigot.

These people want preferential treatment...no doubt. Just look at the organizations and there patterns. Then we have this guy in the Obama admin that founded GLISTEN who is now in charge of the safe school program. What a joke.

This lifesty;e is both evil and nasty and should be called what its...

Even if you take the Biblical position out of it the homosexual lifestyle is wrong. Even the CDC in Atlanta says this choice shortens the lifespan by 15 to 20 years.

Bits and pieces! Sure an unhealthy sex life will shorten lifestyle, but even with regular straight people, anyone that has had even ONE instance of unprotected sex either with them or their partner in up to seven years has that chance of something lurking in their bodies awaiting an incubation period. How many people do you know asked for a clean health certificate when they started dating and got intimate?
