Because a public place is no place for anyone to have sex but gays think a public place is fine place to have sex even in front of children.....
But your ilk is doing a good job to insure the majority teaches their children that your type are evil and nasty and to stay away from them at all cost....
Then when they see their father (me) break a perverts nose in a restaurant they also learn how to deal with gay people........
Great job.....

So, what exactly is the point of voting anymore....answer...there is no point. Voting = legal appeals = overturning the will of the majority.

So instead of behaving like an adult and post a link that was respectufully requested you prefer to act like a child and post silly little quips. You've wasted plenty of time doing so when one post with a link(s) would have sufficed and consumed much less time. Thanks for displaying your character.

What a moron, I posted a link to a documentary on the subject.... Yes there are Gay ( homosexual) Hasidim . OH one more thing Proffesor Poof. Your definition is FUBAR
Homosexuality is romantic or sexual attraction or behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As a sexual orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex; "it also refers to an individual's sense of personal and social identity based on those attractions, behaviors expressing them, and membership in a community of others who share them."[1][2]
Homosexuality is one of the three main categories of sexual orientation, along with bisexuality and heterosexuality, within the heterosexual-homosexual continuum (with asexuality sometimes considered the fourth). Scientific and medical understanding is that sexual orientation is not a choice, but rather a complex interplay of biological and environmental factors.[1][3] While some religious organizations hold the view that homosexual activity is unnatural or dysfunctional,[4] research shows that homosexuality is an example of normal variation in human sexuality and is not in and of itself a source of negative psychological effects.[1] Prejudice and discrimination against homosexual and bisexual people, however, have been shown to cause psychological harm.[5]
The most common terms for homosexual people are lesbian for women and gay for men, though gay is also used to refer generally to homosexual men and women. The number of people who identify as gay or lesbian—and the proportion of people who have same-sex sexual experiences—are difficult for researchers to estimate reliably for a variety of reasons.[6] In the modern West, according to major studies, 2% to 13% of the population is homosexual or has had some form of same-sex sexual contact within his or her lifetime.[7][8][9][10][11][12] [13][14][15][16][17] In a 2006 study 20% of respondents anonymously reported some homosexual feelings, although fewer participants identified themselves as homosexual.[18] Homosexual behavior is also widely observed in animals.[

You need to learn the difference between Orthodox and Hasidic Jews. The only person from a Hasidim in the documentary you reference was the lesbian. How you missed the word "Hasidim" in my comments once again underlines your continual problem with reading comprehension.

Go back to my comments and read them again then report back if I once use the term "Orthodox" Jews.

And once again --stop wasting everyone's time, Clyde. Learn to read for content. If you're unsure of what you read, go back and read it again.

Got all that, Jackass?

North Carolina voters approve a referendum to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage, CNN projects. State law already does not permit such unions. Passage of Amendment 1 largely prevents the state's judiciary from overturning the bill by enshrining its language into the state constitution. Thirty states previously voted in favor of constitutional amendments that seek to defend traditional definitions of marriage as a heterosexual union.

Let me see if I get this.

Only men can be called homosexual. Women who are attracted to the same sex are just lesbians. Is that right???

Did you see the beating the gay community took in North carolina??

The normals are tired of the abnormals forcing there lifestyle on them.....
The gay community is willing to give up equal rights in a civil union only to try and change the word marriage and that will not be happening anytime soon....

North Carolina voters have passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage today via a statewide ballot measure, according the Associated Press.
North Carolina already had a statute banning gay marriage. Amendment One declares that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state”— vague language that opponents say could threaten domestic partnership protections for all couples while closing the door to any sort of same-sex unions.
