I love gay people but not the Gay Nazi's and other authoritarians who want the government to micromanage all our lives. You talk about LGBT's as if they are all one and the same and that is just silly. Do all Bruno's think alike, believe alike, etc.?

Liar. Every time I drive down the street and see one of your stupid church's you are forcing your beliefs down my throat. You are flaunting your religion. Why the Gay Nazi's haven't burnt them all to the ground is a huge mystery to me.

Poof's "faith". Too funny!

Why do you call yourself "Poof"?
Poop1 hopes no one will remember his bragging. But I remember it. Just like a politician who gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar Poop1 wants to pretend he never did those despicable things. Not only did he do them to you Frankie, he did them to me and many others.

Poop1 is the typical fascist, like his partners in crime, lides, cpeter, sheepie and X-rated tutu breath, they all want to silence everyone who exposes their insane desire to micromanage all our peaceful lives.

The are all fascists and what they do here is fascism. Let us call it by its real name.

Yes. Once you get down to lunkhead level, they're all pretty much the same. Like we could switch Bruno with Poof and not even notice the difference. Interchangeable.

It is baffling and confusing and doesn't seem to make any sense at all until you remember- Gay good, straight bad. Then it all makes sense.
That describes our resident Gay Nazi's to a T. There is no right and wrong, there is only gay good, straight bad. Exactly right Frankie.

Giordano Bruno

Giordano Bruno (1548-1600)

Filippo Bruno was born in Nola, near Naples, the son of Giovanni Bruno, a soldier, and Fraulissa Savolino. He took the name Giordano upon entering the Dominican order. In the great Dominican monastery in Naples (where Thomas Aquinas had taught), Bruno was instructed in Aristotelian philosophy. His exceptional expertise in the art of memory brought him to the attention of patrons, and he was brought to Rome to demonstrate his abilities to the Pope. During this period he may also have come under the influence of Giovanni Battista Della Porta, a Neapolitan polymath who published an important book on natural magic. Bruno was attracted to new streams of thought, among which were the works of Plato and Hermes Trismegistus, both resurrected in Florence by Marsilio Ficino in the late fifteenth century. Hermes Trismegistus was thought to be a gentile prophet who was a contemporary of Moses. The works attributed to him in fact date from the turn of the Christian era.

Because of his heterodox tendencies, Bruno came to the attention of the Inquisition in Naples and in 1576 he left the city to escape prosecution. When the same happened in Rome, he fled again, this time abandoning his Dominican habit. For the next seven years he lived in France, lecturing on various subjects and attracting the attention of powerful patrons. From 1583 to 1585 he lived at the house of the French ambassador in London. During this period he published the books that are most important for our purposes, Cena de le Ceneri ("The Ash Wednesday Supper") and De l'Infinito, Universo e Mondi ("On the Infinite Universe and Worlds"), both published in 1584. In Cena de le Ceneri, Bruno defended the heliocentric theory of Copernicus . It appears that he did not understand astronomy very well, for his theory is confused on several points. In De l'Infinito , Universo e Mondi, he argued that the universe was infinite, that it contained an infinite number of worlds, and that these are all inhabited by intelligent beings.

Wherever he went, Bruno's passionate utterings led to opposition. During his English period he outraged the Oxford faculty in a lecture at the university; upon his return to France, in 1585, he got into a violent quarrel about a scientific instrument. He fled Paris for Germany in 1586, where he lived in Wittenberg, Prague, Helmstedt, and Frankfurt. As he had in France and England, he lived off the munificence of patrons, whom after some time he invariably outraged. In 1591 he accepted an invitation to live in Venice. Here he was arrested by the Inquisition and tried. After he had recanted, Bruno was sent to Rome, in 1592, for another trial. For eight years he was kept imprisoned and interrogated periodically. When, in the end, he refused to recant, he was declared a heretic and burned at the stake.

It is often maintained that Bruno was executed because of his Copernicanism and his belief in the infinity of inhabited worlds. In fact, we do not know the exact grounds on which he was declared a heretic because his file is missing from the records. Scientists such as Galileo and Johannes Kepler were not sympathetic to Bruno in their writings.

These Christians! Since they are all filled with the spirit of the Holy Spook all Christians are guided to believe exactly the same thing, So after they tell us about flying penguins perhaps they can tell us why God says gays shall be put to death. Since they will both give the same answer, via the Holy Spook, either of them can answer for the other.

AB 394 (mandatory), signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007, effectively promotes transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via “anti-harassment” and “anti-discrimination” materials, to be publicized in classrooms and assemblies, posted on walls, incorporated into curricula on school websites, and distributed in handouts to take home.
SB 71 (mandatory), signed by Gov. Gray Davis in 2003 and implemented in 2008 through the new “sexual health” standards approved by appointees of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell, teaches children as young as 5th grade that any consensual sexual behavior is “safe” as long as you “protect” yourself with a condom, and teaches children that homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality is “normal.”
AB 1785 (mandatory), signed by Gov. Gray Davis in 2000, required the California State Board of Education to alter the state curriculum frameworks to include and require “human relations education” for children in K-12 public schools, with the aim of “fostering an appreciation of the diversity of California’s population and discouraging the development of discriminatory attitudes and practices,” according to the state legislative counsel’s digest. Unfortunately, the bill defined “culture” and “cultural diversity” to include an unnatural meaning of “sex” or “ gender”(redefined under Government Code, Section 12926(p) and (q), along with Penal Code, Section 422.56(c), producing an overly broad meaning that “includes a person's gender identity and gender related appearance and behavior whether or not stereotypically associated with the person's assigned sex at birth.”) and “sexual orientation”(which Penal Code, Section 422 also defines to include all virtually all aspects of homosexuality and bisexuality).
AB 1785 also required a course on pro-homosexuality-bisexuality- transsexuality “human relations” as a prerequisite for receiving a teaching credential to teach “limited-English-proficient pupils.” And AB 1785 requires public schools to report a new category called "hate-motivated incidents," which are not defined but declared to be "bigoted insults, taunts, or slurs, distributing or posting hate group literature or posters, defacing, removing, or destroying posted materials or announcements, posting or circulating demeaning jokes or leaflets." Unfortunately, the subjective meanings and lack of solid definitions mean peaceful speech or literature upholding marriage between one man and one woman, or explaining the documented health risks of homosexuality could be judged "bigoted" or "demeaning," and thus a reportable "hate-motivated incident" by pro-"LGBT" school administrators. See this news report to learn more about AB 1785.
AB 537 (mandatory), signed by Gov. Gray Davis in 1999, permits teachers and students to openly proclaim and display their homosexuality, bisexuality or transsexuality, even permitting cross-dressing teachers, school employees and student on campus, in classrooms, and in rest rooms. It’s all being done under the banner of “non-discrimination” on the basis of “sexual orientation”(in all its forms) and “gender”(however subjectively defined).
What’s more, beyond these school sexual indoctrination laws
1. There is no California statute prohibiting public school teachers from promoting any legal sexual lifestyle or sexual practice.
2. Schools can and do hold lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgend er “diversity day," "week" or "month.”
3. Schools can and many do permit the pro-“LGBT”“Day of Silence” every April.
Hallelujah brother PRAISE THE LORD
