I'm not gay friend. And it wouldn't matter if I was.

You're just biased and prejudice against gays.

No big deal but it's your burden to be so. I'm still trying to shed myself of old hatreds myself.

It's a waste of time to hate over nothing.

His friend is a made up invention to shove Jesus down our throats. Christians think we are as stupid as they are.
JESUS: Luke 19:27, "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them, bring them here and kill them in front of me."
JESUS: Luke 14:26, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters yes, even his own life he cannot be my disciple."
JESUS: Matt. 10:34, NIV "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."
No junior, true story. Noone in this household would try to shove anything down your throat.
But I understand that it makes you feel better not to believe it.

Of course, but you must admit the rambling narrative is a fun read, not so much for writing skills but for colorful character development. First, the aptly named meat manager attempting to taunt our incorruptible hero, Ralph as it happens, with a porn throw down (likely featuring megaboobage), compels the effeminate produce guy (EPG) to fly out of the closet declaring himself to be gay. Again, our hero, Ralph as it happens, unwaveringly takes the moral high road and remains platonic friends with EPG. Finally, rather than continuing to embrace his gay identity, EPG runs off to Kentucky as it happens, and goes "full salvation" by finding Jesus, becoming a minister and becoming a most fruitful stud as successful serial father and grandfather. Praise Jesus!
Unfortunately, this epic leaves us hanging as to the disposition of our heron Ralph as it happens. We can only imagine that he has continued to have an abundance of platonic relationships with gay friends.
Golly gosh, I wurshed I hada you a right the true tale in my a life. You'rs was a rainbow colorful more better.
I realize you wish to view humans in a manner that all, apparently, will fall into bed with anyone for a quickie.
I know that you may find this hard to believe, but my relationships with the lesbians I have met have been platonic also. After the produce guys change in his life, we both had parts in a local play, where his future wife helped. I took her out to the movies to let her know of his interest in her. He changed from a he/she that led a life I do not fully understand, a full blown man lover with no interest in women, to a husband, yes through the Spirit of the Living God during the early 1970's Jesus movement.
You will never understand without it happening to you.
In the Navy there were guys that would pay out of their salary to engage males in certain sexual acts. They were not particular as to who it was.
One of the guys I worked with (following rated R) talked of a local kid that would "fall on his knees" for the local guys. Once while the kid was on his knees the "receiver" spit tobacco juice on Mr Knees head. Mr Knees looked up and said that sure is a nasty habit you have there.
The following is my opinion, from my male view, while perhaps considered bi-sexual, any male that would recieve sexual gradification from another male is gay also.
Please consider your own unique rewrite of my story, it would be a hoot.

I would not presume to rewrite your story, nor do I believe it possible for me to measure up to your creative literary style. I could only aspire to attract a circle of sexually diverse, albeit purely platonic, friends as those you seem inevitably to attract. It's good you keep Jesus in your hip pocket for convenient access. How can you possibly keep up with all the sexual preferences of your circle in such flux?

Other than the produce guy, and one girl I walked upon french kissing another girl, I was unaware of anyones actual sexual preferences.
While people in the workplace generally are aware of GLBS peoples, there is not preoccupation with their desires.
Are you suggesting that friendships can not be platonic? I realize that there are people that go from sexual liason to sexual liason without finding fullfillment, straight and otherwise. I can love a man as a brother, and not desire him, or visa versa.
If one is a true Christian, they are in Christs pocket, not Christ in our pocket. As I said before you can not understand without finding a relationship with the Living Christ. His Spirit seeks you, and you can accept or reject, your choice.
There are people that like me, and those that don't. Sexual diversity exsists, therefore all peoples fall in to a circle of "friends".

Nothing against gays but this is nothing more than the Dems being worried about the coming election and pandering.

Why couldn't the head of the house release a statement calling on the Senate to pass some of the 40 something economy bills that have been tabled by the senate leadership.

It would be the same. Didn't know you guys were so gullible and na´ve.

How does it feel to be used for votes.

I never gave gays much thought through out my life and I never hassled anyone who was gay. I will admit a few very very fem boys did amuse.

I just find some of the pro gay arguments silly, misinformed or uneducated. Some gays have very repulsive personalities.
.
Gay is a behavior and one does not have to like it or support it, no matter how natural such behavior maybe.

So lets see, most gays that I know are educated, successful, and are able to care for themselves.
In all areas of politics they would be more conservative.

But due to their lifestyle choices and the pandering of the democrats, they always vote democrat, even though they are smart enough to know that the country can not continue to carry all this debt and keep giving away all these freebies. Its just a matter of time.

So if someone votes against their own logical nature due to a social issue. What would that be called.

Talk about throwing out the baby with the bath water.

But please note that it is always the democrats that throw or bring up the social issues during the elections trying to paint the conservative as against gays are women, etc, etc. Gotya politics.

Fact is, it is not a priority in the grand scheme of things.

Your post is idiotic. You act like the Republicans didn't push anti Gay marriage constitutional state laws all over the country. Damned fool
