It's probably inadvisable to post hateful messages that might rub LGBT people the sarong way lest you annoy them enough that they might double down on their systematic program of destroying perfectly happy marriages.

Who knows? They might even be working our own neighborhoods at this very moment knocking at doors, recruiting and converting all our men and boys and, of course, causing divorces so please beware.

They tried that at my home. But I trotted out my life size picture of Marcus Bachmann and they ran off to a Broadway musical.

(I preferred your first version, where you had rubbed LGBT people the sarong way. A little flashy perhaps, but it was good enough for Dorothy Lamour.)

That's why we're supposed to keep those life-size Marcus Bachman cardboard cutouts stashed away in our closets like god intended. Exposure to the light of day can cause unpredictable results.

I suppose gays would like to be accepted unconditionally, but the way things are, I think most would settle for tolerance, meaning live and let live.
I can't recall a single instance where gay people have interfered with my life. In fact, many gay people throughout history have contributed toward enriching our lives, through both the arts and sciences. They are welcome in my world.
Nobody is bothering the gays. They can work where they want, shop where they want, live where they want, eat or drink where they want. How is that not tolerance?

I know, we've been over that. Educated society hates homophobes now, but we don't take their civil rights away. Educated society tolerates sexually sick, closet case bigots. We don't accept them.
Right. There are no educated people that hate homosexuals or cross dressers. Glad to see you know all the educated people in this country.

What channel are you watching? Gay people can be fired or evicted simply for being gay in 29 states. There are and have been lawsuits regarding whether or not gay couples may shop at wedding merchants. Many places in the country have no non-discrimination laws, allowing restaurants to refuse to serve a gay person.

Yes, there are people "bothering the gays". There are people who want to legally restrict our civil rights, there are people who want the freedom to conduct "therapy" to cure us in their church basements, there are gay bashings still happening right in the streets. Tolerance still has a long way to go.

I know what you mean, Lawrence, but it also appears that the closet's hiding some secret admirers subsisting on a strict diet of peanuts and lemons. I'm sure you share my concern for their health. I hope their mothers packed some vitamins.

Guess, you uneducated, stupid pos.

"Maccabiah Games 2014"

But the point was about special activities based around an lgbt identity when that cohort is supposedly only two percent [sic] of the population.

Lots of different communities have all manner of identity oriented events and you don't complain about them.(Although there's little doubt you're an anti Semite, too.)

You merely have a psychosexual issue you're desperate to project out by any flawed argument or claim possible.

I seriously doubt that, Bucky.

Just because Michelle wears the pants in the Bachmann household doesn't mean she's a "tranny."

But you in particular are so stupid and uneducated.

No, sexually sick homophobes are demonstrably concentrated in the older, more uber "religious" and under educated demographics. A pattern which is increasing.

Attorney Cooper who argued against marriage equality in CA is not stupid or uneducated, for example....

Except wait, he's not opposed to marriage equality anymore.

Homophobes in general are stupid and uneducated, Cletus.

Really now? Why don't you post a story or two about gays being legally refused service at a restaurant simply because they are gay. Or losing their apartment or job because they are gay. Where are "gay bashings" taking place that are legal?

Oh, and don't post stories where things like this may have happened. Post stories where things like this happened and it was totally legal.
