Actually, it's because too many of them have people like you in their lives. Can you imagine the tress of having to deal with bullies and bigots every day - especially parents.

That's what Pride is all about - pride that a gay person has enough strength to weather the attacks and turn out strong and healthy despite them.

Interesting this is happening in a time when we are all having LGBT this and LGBT that rubbed in our faces, when it is supposedly A-OK to be gay and out and whatnot. How on earth will you all spin this when "all the bigots have died odd"?

As usual, SniKKKers, your inability to reason results in yet another stupid remark. If the bigots die off, then the attacks, depression, and anxiety that are the result of bigotry will decrease significantly, so there will be little left to "spin."

And how can you complain gay issues are "rubbed in our faces" when you come here willingly to find them nearly every day of your miserable life? No one is forcing you to be here.

Speaking of dying out, what's taking you so long? Let's hope the swine flu heads your way soon. Few diseases would be more appropriate for you.

The work of killing off homophobia is far from finished, particularly in backwards, buybull areas of the country.

We need to see how little fundie snots fare when they are bullied, defamed and disfranchised by parents, peers, counselors, clergy and politicians.

Aren't you sweet. Please note that I have never wished AIDS or anything else on you. I don't need you to die as you apparently need me to.

So you've never wished AIDS on anyone? How exceedingly kind of you. You've been coming here for years spouting off all kinds of homophobic and bible-thumping nonsense and taking absolute delight in disparaging the gay community at every opportunity. You nearly had an orgasm (maybe you did) when describing the bonding you had with your fellow bigots at a Chick-fil-a.

Stop pretending you are anything but an obnoxious loser who lives to hate. Your dishonesty is disgusting though certainly not surprising.

All queers know deep down inside that the lifestyle they have chosen to lead is sick, disgusting and wrong.

Queers think that their being allowed to "marry" will make them happy. They're still all a bunch of miserable, mentally unstable losers.

You have confused your closet lifestyle with people who simply have a sexual orientation, whatever it may be, Jethro.

But man, are you obsessed with male homosexuals.

Given the low quota of intelligence and sensibility of so many people , is this surprising ? If the much touted " traditional families " had any idea of how to raise a child there wouldn't be so many bullies of all ages in society .

No, it isn't exceedingly kind not to wish AIDS on someone. It is just being a normal American who realizes that we all have opinions. Time was in America the right to one's opinions was protected. Real Americans still recognize that and recognize the right to hold alternative opinions. What is decidedly un-Americsn is the current intolerance on the left on the part of people who wish to silence everyone that disagrees with them to the point of wishing a disease on them that might kill them. Stop pretending you are anything like tolerant.

This is great to see fundie christianists increasingly playing the victim card. That means progress.

They still have free speech; they're just increasingly hated - since they're clearly bigots - just as the kkk is hated.

Tough luck for the trash.

And the insane theocrats should likewise run around verbally abusing those who smoked and then got cancer. Their brand of jeeesus would want them to be so hateful of smokers...as they are of glbt people.

Of course the fundies won't do this, because it's not about health or personal responsibility or taxes - it's all about a particular psycho sexual problem of homophobia continually searching for some "justification."

Really sick.

The right to one's opinion is still protected, SniKKKers, so cut the sanctimonious crap. You act as though your abusive commentary is somehow an innocent difference of opinion rather than the abusive degradation of others that is the hallmark of 99% of your remarks.

Unlike the trolls who regularly post name-calling juvenilia, you go out of your way to put some thought into your abuse. Like Ann Coulter, doubtless someone you admire, you truly enjoy being mean to others, and gays seem to be your specialty.(Perhaps you've never even been laid. Given your personality, that would hardly be a surprise.)

Your "opinion" that the left wishes to silence anyone who disagrees is lifted straight out of the Sarah Palin/Fox "News" victim handbook. You attack gays mercilessly then cry like a child when we have the unimaginable self-respect to stand up for ourselves.

So now you're upset and think I'm a mean intolerant person because I don't tolerate your intolerance. Get over it. The only people who care about you are your fellow trolls and the fellow bigots with whom you share your Sunday mornings in church.

You seem to think that one's sexual orientation is a choice. It's not. If it were, you could prove it to the world by choosing to be gay for a short period. Choose to be sexually attracted to someone of your gender. Big talker, we'll be waiting for the results of your scientific experiment.
