nekom: The hate is thinly veiled, if veiled at all.  That's why they're fighting a losing battle.  Look at some of those photos in California and other places of gay couples so happy that they can marry.  Opposing that is like saying "I don't want other people who don't live by my personal beliefs to be happy, in fact I want to make them miserable."  That message just doesn't sell outside of teatard circles.


Growing up in the Chicago burbs, then at a Big Ten school (Go Illini), then in Chicago, I was friends with a decent amount of gay people so I learned early on they're just people like everyone else and to be supportive of equality. But then I moved to San Francisco for a few years, and it was just a different level. Previously, it was mostly gays my age that were just figuring shiat out, but in SF, I met gay and lesbian couples of all ages and backgrounds, some of whom had been in partnerships for decades, some who had families together. Some who were kicked out of the military (one was an Arabic translator, like we need those), some who met in support groups for married men that realized they were gay (both had kids who are still totally in their lives). While there were some jackasses (like in every demographic), the majority were wonderful people I was grateful to call friends and co-workers. I just cannot fathom why anyone would want to deny them the happiness straight people take for granted. I was just at a lesbian wedding this summer, and you cannot tell me there was any less love that day than in any of the other weddings I've been to. It's nothing less than insanity.

TL;DR - Fark these people. Goddamn bigots need to shut their mouths and disappear into the trash bin of history where they belong.

The former Baptist pastor opined that "homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer.

I can't imagine that this guy researched this statement before repeating it.

However, by the same logic, heterosexuality much more likely leads to abortion, incest, child abuse, birth defects, and juvenile diabetes and homosexual children than homosexuality does.

A tea party leader and former Baptist pastor - who believes that AIDS is God's judgement against LGBT people - this week proposed filing a class action lawsuit against "homosexuality".

This is just weapons grade stupid.

First off, if God did send AIDS as a punishment against homosexuals, why aren't heterosexuals immune? If he did sent it to punish gays, then why do lesbians have significantly fewer cases of HIV? How does one prosecute a sexual orientation? If this man is actually a leader of the Tea Party, is it possible said party is populated by dimwitted, ignorant buffoons who have no grasp on reality and hide behind a veneer of fiscal reform to hide their bigoted and hateful core?

 They're actually hoping for a kid to get AIDS to help them more effectively spread their hate.
