I don't understand how "decency" relates to the Homosexual lifestyle.

There is no such thing as a "homosexual lifestyle", since gay folks choose all the same kinds of lifestyles that straight folks do, the good and the bad.

The lifestyle we are talking about here is the married one, though.

What do you have against marriage? Is it just that no one will marry you and you feel jealous?

I don't understand how you could possibly know the lifestyles of an entire group of people you don't know.

To Alex's parents,
Alex's writing skills continue to improve. Thank you for taking the time to help him with his homework. I can see remarkable improvement. Continue to keep him away from the TV and video games.

However, Alex's work indicates that he has not attained the third grade level of proficiency. I have no choice but to keep him here in the third grade again next year. Please don't be discouraged but instead remain optimistic. Keep in mind that Special Education or institutionalization may be the only alternative for Alex.

My critique of Alex's writing was removed by the censors.

Here, I'll try again and I'll be more sensitive.
Alex, that was poorly written. You're staying in the third grade again.

But, then again, maybe I didn't click on the "Post Comment" button, instead I might have clicked "Back."

It was probably my fault.

Because of your bigotry. In fact, being gay is no more or less decent than being straight. Of course, neither is a "lifestyle."

Well, I see the morally bankrupt gays continue their march to pervert as much of society as possible. While all those 'enlightened'-read brainwashed folks-continue to be awed and amazed at how wonderful it is to live in a society that accepts all, they also invite continued acceptance of all that is wrong with society. Gays are damaged goods-period. Their thinking is distorted as well as their entire outlook. Regardless of how pretty you dress up the pig, it's still a pig wallowing in filth.

There is no such thing as the homosexual lifestyle except in the perceptions of homophobic people. Homosexuality and bisexuality are normal sexual orientations, not lifestyles. We want the same things as heterosexuals- happiness, security, the peace of mind to live our lives as openly and honestly as heterosexual people, and that includes marriage (for those who choose it), being with the partner who we love without fear of bigotry or prejudice. If that includes marriage and children so be it. There is no clear independent scientific study that says heterosexual marriage results in better children than those raised by non-heterosexual parents. If the state gives rights based on marriage, it should be available to a loving couple regardless of gender,

I agree.

I live next door to a married gay couple and have yet to figure out what negative impact they have on my life...other than the fact that they buy cheap beer.

There is no good argument for it. It's disgusting and should be considered a crime against nature itself. If a couple cannot reproduce for any reason other than a medical reason, this alone should tell you that it's wrong. Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

What's decency got to do with it? That's so subjective it could mean anything. If people want to live with other people of the same sex, good for them but to try to get a religous ceremony thrown in to boot. It ain't gonna happen. How could it? I mean the very words Gay-Marriage are oxymoronic. I no Bible beater but if the book says it's against this type of lifestyle, how can you argue the book's for it? The next thing you know they,(the majority not homosexuals per se), will be trying to get everyone to quit smoking cigarettes. It's unbelieveable!

Homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and there fore must not be put into the public light of repectfulness. There is help, both secularly and with Jesus, for the homosexual. See exodus international.
