<quoted text> Cause I sees what you is doing. You knows that when the marriage thang is got by them gays that there will be something else. You is looking for respect and you ain't gonna git it until you respects yer self and stops whinning about wanting to call what you wants marrying instead of something else, and all the time saying you wants them rites. Peeople told me for a long time that I is extra smart. I gits along. But I ain't no gay and I nose what they dose with thir peckers and mouths. I wonders how any of them gays can do what they dose and then discrfiminate against someone as smart as me.
Maybe because you come across as a complete moron as well as a bigot?

Male-to-male anal sex cannot be done safely -- that's why gay males are 78% of all new HIV cases (male).

What part of the above don't you understand, fella?

Censorship sucks.
I agree, however they were not banned because people disagreed with their comments but because they harassed and insulted, and nothing else. I am glad to see those two gone. I had to keep stepping over their comments like I step over dog shit on the side walk.

I'm guessing it would take at least 20 sessions with a therapist to help him, while one session of anal sex with a brother would cure him.

<quoted text> A gay man is a feller what likes other mens. I reckon that they is a few what ain't interested in sex, but most of them is old fellers whose thang is so puckered and drawed up that he could not do something if he wanted to. It is the same fer old fellers what likes womens. No, most of them gays is gays because fellers turn them on. They wants to do the butt thang or the mouth thang or they wants it done to them. They ain't many married mens and womens what don't give it a whirl and you knows as well as I dose that they gays ain't no different. So do not try to make believe that them gays ain't into using them peckers. They is.
Ugh.

I'll say this once.

Your online persona of the faux redneck with the tedious idioms and intentional misspellings is extraordinarily annoying.

garylloyd: The gay bathhouse movement was about sexual freedom -- NOT freedom to assemble.

ALAN: You make a distinction where no distinction exists.

garylloyd: Gays wanted the right to have sex in their bathhouses, behavior strictly prohibited by local ordinances. Gays won this right, and the rest, as they say, is history.

ALAN: Gays have always had the right to have sex. The government acting badly doesn't mean they didn't have the right all along.

garylloyd: And why do you think citing cases of heterosexual pedophilia mitigates homosexual pedophlia?

ALAN: Why do you think I think that?

garylloyd: Did you fail math in reform school?

ALAN: No I failed it in San Quentin.

garylloyd: If not, why do you think the thousands of pedo-Catholic priests are equivalent to the handful of hetero priests?

ALAN: Why do you think you make sense?

garylloyd: But let's play with your gay math.. Gay males are less than 4% of the population. Let's crunch the numbers. Let's take Catholic pedo priests and match them up against Christian pedo priests. That's the stupid dichotomy your listing of pedo straights invokes.
Let's compare 96% of the population to 4% of the population and see which demographic is bigger.
Any other brilliant comparisons you want to waste everybody's time with this morning, Rev. Al?

ALAN: Yawn.

Let me ask you a question, fella...
If you were a farmer who after years of tilling your field managed to save enough money to buy six bulls then as you tried to breed them discovered three of them have no interest in cows, what would you think?
Would you be happy about this discovery?
Interesting as we have our own milk cows and to get them to start producing milk we have to get them pregnant. Usually one bull will be rented for a couple of days, the best bull the local breeder has to offer. All other such bulls who aren't good for breeding are made into hamburger.

Of course the reason you're for pot is because Obama is for it.
I started smoking pot when I found that our last four Presidents of the United States used illegal drugs. Illegal drug use leads to becoming President of the United States. Of course I am not a hypocrite and would not put anyone in prison for doing something that I have done.

<quoted text>... and now and advocate of pot, which is arguably one of the most destructive drugs ever to hit the black community -- yes, far more destructive than crack.
Will the circle be unbroken? As long as we have black women like you, Rose, it sure looks that way.
You keep making distinction that do not exist. And in case you haven't noticed we have black women like Rose and you need to stop picking on her because what you are doing is called "black on black crime". Your ignorance and stupidity is far more dangerous than is crack.

When you look at Rose you see a black woman while I see an individual and that means you are a racist, sexist pig.

I'll compare fighting for equality and civil rights to fighting for equality and civil rights as much as I like.
Did you notice his "my people" like all blacks are his? I have always been an integration-ist and garylloyd is a separatist. But I respect his rights, if he can buy Georgia or South Carolina and resell it to only black people who believe as he does, then fine, he has as much right to his beliefs as we have to ours no matter how repulsive we find them.

I was for legalizing pot before Obama was born...
Long, long before he made his lukewarm, "Marijuana is no more dangerous than the deadly poison use to kill germs in hand sanitizer" statement.
His position has nothing to do with mine.
<quoted text>
He's right.
Let's look:
"There are approximately 88,000 deaths attributable to excessive alcohol use each year in the United States.This makes excessive alcohol use the 3r d leading lifestyle-related cause of death for the nation."
http://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/fact-sheets/alcoho...
Now, let's compare that to the number of deaths attributable to excessive pot use each year in the United States. Zero. In fact zero in all of human history.
Which sounds more dangerous to you? You are dumb, but I think you can figure out that 88K>0

LOL! How is pot destructive? Tell us. Be specific, or STFU. More destructive than crack!? How come there are crack whores but no pot whores? Because pot isn't physically addictive like crack is. More destructive than alcohol!? You have got to be kidding, well, maybe you are that ignorant.

The only way to get the equal rights & benefits of marriage is by being married.
"Separate but equal" has been tried in the past. It failed miserably.
If you want to get a domestic partnership or civil union, feel free to do so.
I'll stick with my marriage.
Oh wise one, why can't single people have the same benefits of marriage? Why should government play favorites to people who want to get married over those who don't? That is not equality, that is special treatment.
