You most certainly ARE prejudiced. Your rantings and ravings against GLBT people prove it.

Wrong. All we want, AND DESERVE, is the RIGHT to marry the legal, consenting, unattached adult of our choice. We don't want any "special" rights.

Now. Have mommy put your TeleTubbies tape in for you.

The current pope has shown that he is NOT a "Christian leader", much less Christian.

The same reason encouraging college by offering student loans is unequal treatment that I don't lose a minute's sleep over...
how does hurting non students help students?
It doesn't. we are just picking the group we are encouraging and non students aren't in it...
same as marriage with gays..
you are simply not the people we are seeking....
Again, marriage is a fundamental right of the individual. Fundamental rights are protected for all persons. They are not a student loan, wind power, or oil company.

Denial of that fundamental right to same sex couples does nothing to encourage straight couples. It only harms same sex couples and their families while providing no benefit for straight families. A tradition of discrimination is not a sufficient excuse for more discrimination.

Empathy that goes both ways, gay rights have no empathy for the majority. If someone says NO they stamp their feet and get all uptight as if we should consider them a special case.<
Sorry, bestie, but you're wrong. My WIFE and I (we're a happily-MARRIED lesbian FAMILY)ARE legally married. Get a clue, and grow UP.
Don't you know straight people stopped getting married and those who were, all got divorced when gay people started getting married more than a decade ago?

Oh, wait... that didn't happen. But we should all be very afraid. It could still happen tomorrow.

Homosexuality is degenerative. Get it? You are a degenerate. A dead limb on a perfectly normal cherry blossom. That's why they make saws Roberta.
Happy New Year.
Human history is a "cherry blossom"? Please define "normal" as it applies to humans.
Homosexuality has existed for at least as long as recorded history. So has left-handedness. And red hair. How is a natural condition "degenerative"?

LOL.

I see you leave out man and woman having anal intercourse.

Why does anal intercourse ONLY interest you if it is between males?

Kind of odd, don't you think?

And what does ANY person, man or woman, engaging in anal intercourse have to do with "family values"? Are you suggesting that no human who engages in it is fully human? Can never marry? Can never form a family?

Just try that and see how it flies.

Honestly Congress needs to pass an ammendment that guarantees the right to marry any person, whether it be man or woman, a person may choose, and to all you biblethumping sh!ts that disagree, go back to f*cking your mother-wife and leave everyone else alone, any normal Christians who disagree with this can, instead, go f*ck a woodchipper. We all have the INALIENABLE (meaning you cannot take it away without violating the constitution.) Right to life, liberty, and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, if marriage to another of the same sex makes you happy, you should be aloud to do so. And why the f*ck should the government care about family values, especially the right-wing, I thought they wanted LESS govt. Interference in our lives. It sickens me that people sworn to uphold the Constitution can be all for taking away someones rights.

First, you are always on the religious debates, so your name makes no sense because "The World's Biggest Lie" is "I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions".

Second- anal, gay relationships, both normal, many different spiecies, including MANY primates do both, evolution has induced homoaexuality, and don't say evolution is a lie, if you knew anything about the structure of DNA you would know its impossible for evolution NOT to happen.

Normal: Man and woman have intercourse and produce a child.
Abnormal: Man and man have anal intercourse. At no point in recorded history have they EVER produced a child and NEVER will. Normal.

Oh, I'm dead wrong to think that you are straight when you're not actually having straight sex. Sorry, I didn't realize that you were bisexual.
And were you wrong to use the word "mute" when you actually meant to use the word "moot"?

Based on your posts, you are probably too stupid to understand this, but my inner nice guy compels me to ask:
What makes you a heterosexual?
Are you a heterosexual only when you are actually having heterosexual sex? Or is it an orientation; how you feel and react to the world around you, even when you are not actively engaged in heterosexual sex?

So any intercourse that does not produce a child is not normal?!?
