When black people wanted to be able to sit anywhere on the bus, the white people around them were just sure that it was the first sign of total social destruction. They were convinced that the next thing these blacks would want would be to be allowed to vote, and then to elect black people to public office! And to the white's way of thinking, this would spell the end of their 'way of life' as they'd always known it.

And they were right. Black people did demand more than just to sit wherever they wanted on the bus. They did demand the right to vote. And they did elect black people into public office. And they did put an end to life as it had been, before. But it turned out that the changes weren't so dower for white people after all, and they made life a lot better for a whole lot of other people who had been suffering, before. So it wasn't such a bad thing after all.

Homosexuals are already on the march. They already can go wherever they want to in our society, and they can already vote, and they have already elected many fellow homosexuals into public office, and life as it had been is already changing. Sorry, dude, but you're going to have to accept it. Just as the racists of decades past had to accept desegregation and the abolition of the 'Jim Crow' laws.

But just as before, the world is not going to fall apart. Although it will not be the same, either. But a lot of people who had been made to suffer in the past, will no longer have to suffer as they once did, and the people who were responsible for that suffering will not be significantly harmed by the changes. All our crying and whining and visions of doom will once again prove to be mostly internalized fear, as we're forced to accept the changes happening around us.

I'm not black, but I'm glad for all those changes that happened a few decades ago, because I don't want to be part of a white oppressor class/race. And I'm not gay, either, but I'll be glad when homosexuals finally have all the same rights as everyone else, for the same reason. I don't like to see other people suffer, and I especially don't want them to suffer for my sake. Especially when ending that suffering doesn't really hurt me, or anyone else.

Just because two people are emotionally and relationally stunted to the point of having a sexual dysfunction, doesn't mean that they can't love each other.

If we as a society don't recognize the nature of their relationships then they would have to take the emotional and psychological steps necessary to deal with their fears. Instead they project onto society. Don't you all get this? It is you all who have the problem not them. If you would just let them try to meet all the normal emotional psychological and relational needs that everyone has to meet through their sexual dysfunction then everything would be okay. Don't you get it? They are really normal and just like all of you.

Invest in law firms that specialize in divorce.

Long term relationships are practically non existent in the homosexual so-called "community".





"Make no mistake: Children are the target of what I call the “sexual anarchy movement.” Whether it’s the movement’s pedophile wing that seeks to literally rape children, or its radical pro-abortion, homosexualist and feminist wings, which seek to rape the minds of children, the larger sexual anarchy movement has a shared goal: Attack, corrupt and destroy God’s design for human sexuality. Children are just collateral damage."

Your issue is with God, not us.

First..."If two men love eachother, why cant they get married?"

Second..."If a man and a 11 year old girl love eachother, why can't they get married?"

Third..."If two 12 year old boys love eachother, why can't they get married?"

Fourth..."If a man and a dog love eachother, why can't they get married?"

...Perversion is a gradual process.





Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, if it turns out they are right and get mad at you, they are a mile away and barefoot.

That's just it--how does the government get to dictate to the church what marriage is? It does not. Why then do you all fret so much?

Whats not to get, Normal Heterosexual people who actually procreate to keep the race from going extinct do not want their children exposed to your perversion whether it be Homosexuality, Transgender Bestiality, Pedophilia et al. We are teaching our children that these behaviors are not normal and don't want it to invade our freedom to oppose it. Nobody says you cannot engage in your perversion, what we are saying is keep it in your own bedroom, don't force it on society, and don't ever expect it to be considered normal because it is not.

You just need to understand that it is society that is wrong not the homos.

Their sexual inversion is not wrong or abnormal just a variant off the mean. And if you would just accept them then everything would be just fine.

If a homo isn't allowed to socially identify by the psyche that was created to cope with his/her psychological isolation (closet) then they are totally without a foundation from which view the world (orientation).

Thus they fight tooth and nail for this since it is their reality that they are defending and paranoid grandiose delusion is the heart of it.. Projection is their weapon and intimidation their battle tactic..

Get a clue..

They are as the bible describes them FILTHY DREAMERS..

An 11 year old is incapable of consent.

Third..."If two 12 year old boys love eachother, why can't they get married?"
For the same reason they can't buy cancer sticks or alcohol ... they are underage.

Fourth..."If a man and a dog love eachother, why can't they get married?"
Because "Grrr Arf" is not the equivalent of "Yes, I will marry you".

There is no comparison between a choice about having or not having sex and a persons skin color. Ive seen many black people complain about gays trying to compare the 2. There is no comparison.





"Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation" - BHO

2 Peter 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
