I want to ask her how many people she can list that she knows have been "teased" into a hospital with massive injuries.

Homosexuality is nothing but weakness of character, rebelliousness and cowardice, resulting in extreme behavior that once experienced is rationalized as normal and supported by a subculture sustaining those deviant behaviors, often initiating them with drugs and other coercions. In these ways, it clearly reflects the same processes in a criminal mind. Thus, it is learned behavior. Recognizing this identifiable influence on young children and the constant attempts by radical "gay" groups to impose sexuality on children, it is always correct to limit this proactive assault on their society and culture. Adults influencing children to act out deviant behaviors in schools is abhorrent to a sane society. As with all cases of bullying, no Senator, or Representative of any State, or Federal position would implement policies not addressing that bullying. Such absurd claims by gay promoters is as sick as their constant attempts to sexualize younger and younger children.

We’re all begging you, get some therapy. Your obsession with all things gay has gone from creepy to clinical.

I trust that people in this candidate's community will tease her and any children she may have via a social media campaign insinuating without quite saying that her husband is a closet case.

I didn't read the article so I don't know if she is married, or indeed, even if the candidate being spoken of is female. But why let any facts stand in the way of a good teasing?

He doesn't need therapy. I don't want to get some therapy. I want him "dead or in prison within a year after Obama's re election."

This is obviously a metaphor. I think.

Like the wine used in some "religious" masses? Is that the kind of "mind control" you reference here? Or the prescription drugs taken by the *truckload* by Americans of all stripes? Funny; why single out gay people?
Bringmedinner wrote:

Like the coercions of antigay organizations (attempting to force boycotts on starbucks and other companies), the "church" (attempting to indoctrinate through masses, calls to moral authority, and acts of molestation and rape), and the antigay themselves (engaging in repeated and willful acts of harassment, intimidation, assault, battery and murder against gay people)? Those kinds of coercions?
Bringmedinner wrote:

It sure does; according to every point I've just made, the antigay should be jailed for many years, if not for life. I mean, according to YOUR logic, champ.
Bringmedinner wrote:

Antigay behavior is clearly learned. See above.

Those pesky priests again, huh?

Weird; you make no mention of radical antigay groups. I see not a peep.

There is no greater imposition on children than the acts of MOLESTATION and RAPE, and yet you do not indict the "CHURCH"; strange.

And this would be why those dioceses and priests and pastors and bishops are now on trial in courts of law. Truth sucks, doesn't it.

Is your obsession with these priests? You make so many references to them which identify them directly that I'm surprised you never mention them once by name in your post.

Or in church?

That's why the "church" has lost tons of influence, natch.
Bringmedinner wrote:

Like your post, here on topix? I cannot identify it in any other way than as an act of harassment and/or bullying, yet you act like you have a pedestal to stand on when you indict others. Is your post supposed to be comedy?
Bringmedinner wrote:

And if they do, people like you will be the first indicted on the very grounds you champion in this post.
Bringmedinner wrote:

Yet I could write a post questioning *a dozen or more* of the actions, acts, behaviors, beliefs and philosophies of the antigay. And yet the antigay weltanschauung is supposed to be "sane," by your claims. Got it.

Yet your post is supposedly healthy, mature, and contributory to the betterment of the United States of America. Got it.

WHOOPS, lemme repeat something I said above, so everyone can see it again; ready?

There is no greater imposition on children than the acts of MOLESTATION and RAPE, and yet you do not indict the "CHURCH"; strange.

"bringmedinner," dare you to take your allegations to court.

Dare you, dare you, dare you, dare you, dare you. See what becomes of the trial; of your "allegations"; of the *reaction all over America to the trial*; but before you do that, ask yourself:

Why will the antigay NOT present contentions like yours in courts of law?

Why do the antigay avoid *at all costs* any mention in courts of law of the contentions YOU make here?

So in her response, she admitted to being teased as a child because of her voice. But she thinks those who teased her had a protected right to make her feel bad and less valued as a human because she was different. On what planet does that even make sense? Wilson is just going to be a GOP lapdog just like she was during her term as a congress woman. She is going to repeat and vote the party line without having any independent thought of her own.

I saw a fascinating explanation of how Republicans think vs. Democrats, and the Republican mindset EMPHASIZES FOLLOWING A PARTY LINE WITHOUT THOUGHT. Literally. It's part of their mindset *not* to think, but to obey a "code." Part of their seething, vicious contempt for Democrats comes from their belief that Democrats are *morally wrong* to do their own thinking for themselves.

I am oversimplifying and not everyone matches this description, but it's interesting how much it reflects reality.

The liberals aren't any better in that respect. Neither group really looks at issues and makes informed decisions. Because of this the Senate race in New Mexico this year is between dumb and dumber and how much idiocy can you stand until the next election.

You missed what I am saying -- quite possibly *yourself* caught up in a paradigm that you recite to yourself robotically, without thought.

Democrats may think similarly to each other, but unlike Republicans, they are *NOT* getting it, puppetlike, from "leaders." They may be getting it similarly to each other *in other ways*, but it is *Republicans* who get it FROM so-called "leaders" who encourage them and brainwash them to believe in a weltanschauung that OPPOSES the Democratic thought process.

Democrats are pointedly, specifically hated for *not* obeying that paradigm, like Republicans do. Democrats *pride themselves* on not obeying it. Many criticisms could be made of Democrats, but they *do not* engage in that groupthink *in the way that Republicans do* and *in the way that Republicans believe is morally imperative*.
