I wouldn't trust a single word from this "Rick". Gay activists have a long and sordid track record of sleazy pandering, victim-mongering, character assasination, crude demonization, and elaborate, sophisticated falsehoods - THAT'S what their brick road out from the closet has been paved with - always bypassing the democratic process with sleazy, brute force politics.<quoted text>Sweetie, they aren't "special protections" if they are extended to everyone. The ordinance would protect YOU if you were somehow discriminated against on the basis of your sexual orientation or how you express your gender (you do have those don't you?). There is an all too well documented history of discrimination against those who aren't heterosexual and those who express their gender in less than conventional ways, that's pretty much a given and while nowhere near as frequent, there exists discrimination against those who are heterosexual and those who express their gender in familiar ways. We all deserve equal protection, whether you really want it or not.
The socially-irresponsible and destructive aims of this pathologically thin-skinned demographic have always been cavalier and indifferent to the rights of "We the People" as defined by the Constitution.
Your abusive arrogance, Rick, is exactly what is causing the gay juggernaut's house of cards to topple. Because let's face it, your responses on this forum are motivated by infantile hatred and mal-adjustment. Your manifestations of that have paper-thin transparency. The hatred, true hatred, is from gays themselves.
