The homosexuals are all over the NFL.
An assistant coach for one team, a black former player, cracked up his team during film sessions when the film showed his players were running around aimlessly into each other, by dismissing the film and saying, "That's some gay porn, there."
The players loved him.
The homosexuals just got him fired because of that running joke that the players loved.
Just for those words.

Nobody I know who has a son would be proud of that.
Well that was graphic...you've thought about this a great deal, haven't you?

Every major medical and psychological organization in the world disagrees with your bizarre views on homosexuality.
Until you can recognize this, you're really just babbling.
Nothing bizarre about it! It was and is still the typical medical observation outside of Western European political influence, I suspect. I'm not one to waste too much time on it. Even government reports claim that the profession of psychiatry is only accurate a small fraction of the time. Sorry, I didn't keep that link. It's something I found a year or more ago. Don't expect me to go looking for it. It's just not good science. All we can go on is common sense and I don't see a lick of sense in homosexuality.

No one is interested in the few bogus court wins you've bought at the cost of far more than a billion dollars. The states aren't even defending the other point of view.
There's no lawyer in effect on the other side.
The decisions like the VA one are worthless and say things like the Constitution includes the words "All Men are created equal."

God is capitalized.
Yes, the trial judge who just ruled for you in VA wrote in her decision that the Constitution states "All Men are created equal." Look it up. You don't need to tell me. Political Correctness doesn't affect my mind like it does yours.
Also see how she posted the decision in the middle of the night like she was a big fat lesbian eating fudge ripple. The Utah trial judge who ruled for you included an F-U to Justice Antonin Scalia.
Thank God these lowly trial judges couldn't move you from 17 to 18 states.
No one can.
See Zeno's Paradox and Justice Antonin Scalia.
It's only a matter of time before we have all 50.

Btw, you do realize Justice Fat Boy Scalia is in the minority on this issue.

It'll be a 5-4 or 6-3 majority requiring all 50 states to allow same-sex couples to marry, with Fat Boy Scalia & his lapdog Uncle Thomas joined by Alito & maybe Roberts dissenting.

We've got the 5 justices we need for a majority.

His question is valid even if his tactics aren't too civil. Whose are around here? Rose has been a "straight advocate" for gay rights and Gary wants to know if there's a family factor prejudicing her judgement. Simple enough. One shouldn't be dishing out abuse if they are so easily hurt.

The VA trial judge who just ruled for YOU wrote in her official decision that the Constitution states All Men are created equal. The Declaration ISN'T law at all. On the other hand, the Constitution IS and it is the SUPREME law of the land...
And the 14th Amendment grants all persons equal protection.

Marginalizing gays is an evolutionary and societal imperative to eliminate a defect. To promote the doctrine that homosexuality is normal and to be celebrated is the true perversion.
So you think marginalizing people is OK? How about the red man? I guess it was perfectly fine to exterminate the red man. Homosexuality is perfectly normal for some people Charlie. Why do you take it on yourself to abuse others? Abusive people are perverted Charlie. What's up with that? Do you have a weak ego? Go see a therapist.

Effeminate men had a disassociation from a strong Male Role model. So they learn to be soft like a woman, usually their mother. Pretty soon they are completely confused so they seek out their lack of masculinity in the arms of a male. Pretty soon a gay man appears.
Wrong yet again.

Most effeminate men are heterosexual.

The majority of gay men aren't effeminate in the least.

But keep living your life by your same lame stereotypes.

It won't stop us from being able to marry in all 50 states before the end of the decade.

Never saw the movie, did you?

When Pi was a child, he was fascinated with every religion and would not pick one over another. The story is about him being trapped on a lifeboat with a tiger for a companion. In the end of the story, some insurance people wanted him to report on the reason for the shipwreck. They didn't like his whimsical story of animals and floating islands so he invented a dreary, cynical story about fellow survivors killing each other.

The conclusion of the story was Pi's posing the simple question to the person he was telling the story to. "Which story would you rather believe?"

I guess the question he would pose to you is "Why don't you want to believe in God?" He never preached dogma. He just tended to give people things to think about. Maybe that's what our "Life of Pi" is really about.

This from a federal judge?
http://abcnews.go.com/politics/t/blogEntry...
A federal judge who struck down Virginia's ban on gay marriage inaccurately attributed a quote from Declaration of Independence to the Constitution.
"Our Constitution declares that 'all men' are created equal. Surely this means all of us," Arenda Wright Allen wrote in her original opinion, issued late Thursday.
Though the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees "equal protection" under the law, the Constitution does not include the phrase "all men are created equal." That would be the Declaration of Independence.
Several judicial observers noted the discrepancy, including South Texas College of Law professor Josh Blackman.
Sure enough, by mid-day today, Allen issued a second draft: "Our Declaration of Independence recognizes that 'all men' are created equal."
Blackman also pointed out that the words "all men" are included in the Virginia Constitution.
Adopted in 1971, Section One of the current Virginia Constitution asserts "all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights."
Judge Allen's ruling on the case remained unchanged.
Oh gee, I'm sure that error will cause the 4th circuit to throw out the entire ruling....

Wow, you anti-gays really ARE getting desperate now!

There's nothing here to do with semantics! I don't copy things. What on earth kind of response is that? I really don't care what you post about your mind. You don't seem to be in touch with it very often anyway.

So Rose's son is gay? So much for her pretense of objectivity.
She's a failure as a mother and comes here every day to convince herself she isn't.
Tell us, Rose -- what came first: were you a fag hag before you discovered your son was gay or after?
LOL!

I don't have a son, don't have any kids, never will.
Never said I have any kids.

From time to time I've made a clearly hypothetical (look up the term) statement like "If my son turned out to be gay."), but that's it

So, when are you going to tell us how pot has destroyed black youth?
Today is as good as any day.

Well, your state is your state. When Obama leave office, I wonder if the next president will be so willing to hand out benefits with a huge deficit to contend with and no reason to be giving gifts to people just because of their financial arrangements.

That's all that exists right now. The courts are just vapor-locking the judicial system with a flawed interpretation of the 14th Amendment and the president is engaging in prejudicial abuse of public funds. I want my money BACK! I want ALL of it back.

I intend to make sure that our government never again imagines engaging in punitive actions against people for political reasons. It's not just Obama. New Jersey is feeling the results of that kind of irresponsibility themselves about now. We need to crucify politicians for THEIR sins and they cannot escape by the "plausible deniability" of their minions.
