At one time you indicated losing a partner to AIDS. However, the point you are avoiding is that anal sex has had a devastating affect on our society.
You equating that with natural sex, especially as a social worker, is abhorrent. You falsely create fear for some, and minimize risk for others.
Then you turn around and assert that the idea of curing a sexual disorder is immoral. Unbelievable.
You further your perverted denial by asserting that facing issues in life results in people not feeling welcome in society. My challenge to homosexuals results from walking that path ahead of them. A monster mutation who embraces the good, bad and ugly. That honesty has resulted in a welcome embrace. Except from those who want to maintain their own denial.
Anyone with a small measure of common sense can clearly see who is putting people at risk VV, and it ain't me.
I have never indicated that I lost a partner to AIDS. I have lost friends to AIDS, but never a partner. You must have me confused with some other person that you talk to. You do, after all, spend an inordinate amount of time perusing these TOPIX forums (at one time I counted 10 forums where you spread your anti-homosexual agenda).

Anal sex hardly has a devastating effect on our society. As I said before, millions of people--gay and straight--engage in anal sex every day. If it were as devastating and demeaning as you suggest the country would grind to a halt.

Anal sex has long been practiced by people around the world and throughout the ages. It's hardly unnatural.

The only thing unnatural is your continued fascination and obsession with it. You never miss a chance to zero in on it like a prick to an asshole. And I can't decide if you're the "prick" or the "asshole". You seem to be both.

There is nothing "disordered" about homosexuality. Again, it's been around since the beginning. It's as natural as heterosexuality.

There are disorders, however, surrounding people who spend their time thinking about other people's sexual habits--imagining who puts what where. That is a sickness that you share with many people.

As for the rest of your comment, you can keep your warm embrace. Save it for your wife, who always has my deepest sympathies.

As I've told you before. I see no need to prove anything to you. Suppose your paranoia is justified and I really am against marriage equality. So what?
I have never run away from you. You are a liar.
Let's cut through all your bullshit. I support marriage equality and you do not.
so you are running away from proving you are for marriage equality once again, huh?

i have given clear examples showing you do not really support it, such as you approving of posts that call it unequal.

why can you not back up your lies, francis?

you have been caught out as the liar you are by your own disingenuity...

Worked professionally with marriage and family.
Married hundreds of couples.
In 8000 years of human history, every single culture has had marriage.
Not one single culture has accepted ss couples as married from start to finish. Not one!
Like I said, idiot.
Let's not forget... Contemporary society does not have to rest on the shoulders of history. We are a progressive species. Since the Age of Enlightenment, we have been marching toward equality for all men and women. Marriage equality and civil rights for the LGBT community is just another step to that end.

I realize that there are those who believe we must always have a toe in the past. You like tradition. I get that.

But as you well know, your enjoyment of tradition does not get to stop my enjoyment of progression.

If you could just lie with the fact that you can't inflict yourself onto the rest of society, I'm sure you'll be happier and we'll be happier.

1. I think facing the fact that GLBT is a sexual disorder is the only base for a effective and healthy response. The inherent harm, unhealthiness and demeaning nature of anal sex exposes that reality.
2. The denial of that reality has led to a foolish attempt to equate SS couples to marriage. Pointing out the inherent harm, unhealthiness and demeaning nature of anal sex compared to intercourse exposed the facade.
Ya see, that's where the screw up is, if they had just gone and admitted it was a disorder instead of a conscious decision, the medical industry would have had a wetfart load of money coming in to correct it. The reason there is so much money fighting cigarettes is NOT because of the tobacco, it's because of the CANCER caused by the smokers doing themselves in. They don't blame the smokers anymore, they blame the cigarettes. If the gays had admitted it was a disorder all the rest of us would still be footing the bill for their 'disorder'. Thank you gays.

Is it "progression" or simply a passing phase? Why hasn't SSM sustained itself? SSSB is not new, nor is recognized same sex unions, albeit I limited in time and place. Yet SSM never took root to the point where it was self sustaining within the society that allowed it. Are we to think it will now?

Nope. I'm right here. Standing by what I said. I have no need to prove anything to you.

I find it amusing that you think you can order me to prove my loyalty as a distraction (straw man) because you have no other argument.

Even if I was lying about supporting marriage equality (Why would I do that?) you still have no argument. It's a non issue.

I am for marriage equality. Are you? Prove it.

but it is not a disorder. you seem confused on so many facts... the reason there is so much money fighting cigarettes is there is so much money made selling cigarettes. it has nothing to do with 10% or so of smokers that get cancer...

try to talk about things you actually understand. perhaps you do some knitting in your spare time? talk about that...

The only other word other than SWINE that sends Taliban-Muslims in to a frenzy is the word DRONE.

Drone strike kills Taliban commander linked to kidnap of US soldier, let him and the other six bacon bits that were killed enjoy themselves.

All missiles that strike Taliban-Muslim crazy's are require to be tipped with SWINE bacon bits, helps them find the right target.

the question is, why WOULDN'T you want to say it. you claim you support marriage equality..even thought your posts do not seem to back that up, as i clearly pointed out...why wouldn't you want to clear up the confusion your own words have made.

because it is a ruse, you attempt to use this polygamy gambit and when it backfired on you, you can not back up your own words... sad...run away some more, little old man...at least you and the other dinosaurs like you will be dead soon...

You're into playing games.
About now you'll bring in polygamy.
Funny thing about polygamy - it in itself is a separate format and you have yet to prove you're for it given there is no other source for your supposed support of Mormon Moe marrying 4 women outside of your empty posts in here.
You're a loser friend. When you die your obituary will consist of 2 lines in the local paper provided your real name is long enough.
Polygamy shouldn't be allowed because Frankie's obit will only be two lines.

Great argument you have there. Tell it to the judge. Frustrated?

I have never run away from you,and nothing has backfired on me. You are a liar.

Poly marriage deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. You are a hypocrite. I support marriage equality and you do not.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

Marriage. There is no one right way.
yet you still did not say same sex marriage is totally and wholly equal to opposite sex marriage, why is that? it would seem a very simple thing to say if you really did, in fact, support marriage equality...

c'mon, just say it like you mean it...
