The true Texans are much more libertarian than anything.  They have the attitude "Don't tell me how to live my live and I won't tell you how to live yours".  They don't care if you are gay, straight, black, white, or green.

True. My friends who grew up here, are very liberal Democrats.

AirForceVet: FTA: "There's no way to stop the haters at Sullivan High School from holding an independent prom for the special bigoted kids," he wrote. "But here's what we can do: we can make a noise so loud enough that all the queer kids at Sullivan High School hear it. Those kids need to know that there are people -- a lot of people -- who think this (expletive) is wrong."

Well, the first sentence sums up the real issue. Those who hate gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders are going to hold a private party someplace because they hate anyone that's different. Their churches, parents and friends support and enable their hatred.

hubiestubert: miss diminutive: Honestly, I don't understand the reasoning behind the hatred many Christians hold towards the gay community. Why do they take this one issue, which is hardly mentioned outside the Old Testament, and make it into a rallying point? They already dismiss and disregard so much of what's written in the bible, why does homosexuality take front seat?

Top Ten Reasons to Make Gay Marriage Illegal

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; ...


tl;dr

BarkingUnicorn: Dallymo: "Gays have no purpose in life"

Well, they make you feel pretty superior...you'd probably have a pretty tough time with that if they weren't around.

Dipshiat.

Egocentric.  The woman says God puts people in her life for a purpose.  I've no doubt the purpose  is to help her qualify for Heaven. The special ed kids serve her purpose. Gays do not. Other people's purposes don't matter.  It's all about her.


Maybe the gay kids were put in her life to help her understand what a coont she is. She should pay closer attention.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Point02GPA: SkunkWerks: Point02GPA: I responded to "what they do with their private

Like I said, unless they've got completely different ways of relieving themselves, I'm fairly sure gay folk use their privates in restroom thingees exactly the same way we do.

So why does "not worrying about what people do with their privates" stop working out well once you've gone to the loo?

Gay men use the womens loo?

I'm a straight woman and I've used the men's loo plenty of times. The lines are much shorter, if they exist at all. Never had a problem, either. Also, no one asks if they can "borrow" my lip gloss, so that's a huge bonus right there.

You recall incorrectly.  Old Testament God says male-on-male homosexuality is punishable by death (Leviticus 20:13), whereas shellfish are considered unclean (Leviticus 11:10) but there's no prescribed punishment for eating them.
