And if he were gay he sure didn't show it as he put to death thousands of gays in the concentration camps,and thus the pink triangle on their shirts! Try again,you are wrong!

43 states have ban against gay marriage, the 3 state challenges will not pass, history proves.

So, that is 43 out of 50.

You are right, you can't add, only 6 states with no ban, but only the ones without an initiative process have a longer haul, these states just simply need to add the initiative process and back in the closet goes the gays.

Well,now that you describe OL Hitler in such a way,tell us all what it's like to be related to him? I mean you just described yourself to a Tee,being that you're shoved so far in that closet and you most certainly are a self-hating gay yourself! I heard tell you're just pissed off cause the reparative therapy failed and now you have to act like the human POS that you are! Seriously you sick phuque,isn't it about time to see a good psychiatrist for the obvious psychosis that you suffer from? Tell us,what's it like to be a confirmed lying,sick,psychotic sociopath? Oh,and not gay moron,as I believe there is nothing wrong with being gay and I would have NO shame in admitting so if I were! Now about that help,there is still time to become a caring human being?

<quoted text>Learn to love yourself, become an ex-gay, it won't hurt.
Many ex-gays are afraid to come out of the closet because of the harassment they will receive. The tactics of gay activists are to go after anyone who comes out publicly as ex-gay, force them back into the closet, and then claim that ex-gays don't exist because there aren't any out in public. For example, see:
http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex...
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
http://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen/09b/Pa...
http://www.wjla.com/news/stories/0410/731411....
PFOX is not an anti-gay organization – we are a pro-ex-gay organization. All people should be treated with dignity. We respect the opinions of others, even if they disagree with us. Indeed, we do not ask for their approval – only their tolerance.
What is the ex-gay movement?
Equality Virginia demanded that Washington DC Metro remove PFOX’s subway billboards advocating tolerance for ex-gays.
An ex-gay volunteer staffing PFOX’s exhibit booth at the Arlington County, Virginia Fair was physically assaulted because he refused to recant his ex-gay testimony. Wayne Besen, a former spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign, falsely reported that the assault had never occurred.
After speaking at an ex-gay conference, Michelle McKinney-Hammond lost her programming on a broadcast station because Besen made good on his threat to complain to the station about speakers making appearances at ex-gay events.
Bash Back!, a gay group that retaliates against heterosexuals who vote against genderless marriage, can be seen in this video screaming and chanting against an ex-gay meeting held at a Boston church -- http://www.youtube.com/watch... This incident is cited in a federal complaint filed against Bash Back for intimidation – see paragraph 68 of the legal filing at http://www.alliancedefensefund.org/UserDocs/M...
After writing a letter her local newspaper as a concerned citizen, Crystal Dixon was terminated from her job as an Associate Vice President of Human Resources for Toledo University. An African-American, Dixon challenged the civil rights comparison of race with homosexual behavior. Dixon’s letter also revealed that some gay people have overcome unwanted homosexual feelings, as evidenced by the growing popularity of PFOX and other ex-gay organizations.
This irrational phobia of those who have overcome unwanted same-sex attractions perpetuates misunderstanding and harm against the ex-gay community. It also demonstrates a disregard for diversity and a refusal to respect a basic human right to dignity and self-determination.
Why do gays hate ex-gays so much?
Gay activist organizations instruct their members to reject ex-gays and homosexuals who refuse to self-identify as "gay." This rejection is a form of heterophobia that can be overcome with education and outreach. Gay activists cannot claim sympathy as victims when they victimize their own. We should all be tolerant of each other regardless of our sexual orientation. Homosexuality has multiple causes and people have experienced it differently in their lives. If a gay person's sense of well-being is dependent on all other people with same-sex attractions having had the same experience that they did, then that person is in a dangerous place. In fact, this is what has caused persecution of ex-gays.
Oh sweety! That's not what you said last night at our bible reading class! LOL,I just wanted to thank you for all the nasty things you did to me after the bible class! WoW,you got one pair of talented lips honey,and our so talented!Must have had lots of practice huh? Same time and place tonight?

You are in for an endless battle. Why is it so important to prove that there is no God ? what will you accompish ? will it change your life ? will it change the way you do things ? there must be more important things to conquor such as putting this country back on track.

Pink Triangle
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_triangle
Hitler was a fairly mainstream Leftist of his day. It must be remembered that he gained power by way of a democratic election, not by way of a revolution or a military coup. In German, not only the word "Socialism" (Sozialismus) but also the word "Victory" (Sieg) begins with an "S". So he said that the two letters "S" in the hooked-cross (swastika) also stood for the victory of Aryan man and the victory of the idea that the "worker" was a creative force: Nationalism plus socialism....SS....Hitler was not only a socialist in his own day but he would even be a mainstream socialist in MOST ways today......and he hated jews just like our current socialist leader. Further, as a good socialist does, Hitler justified everything he did in the name of "the people" (Das Volk). The Nazi State was, like the Soviet State, all-powerful, and the Nazi party, in good socialist fashion, instituted pervasive supervision of German industry..........Despite the Nazi Party's opposition to homosexuality and persecution of homosexuals, some historians have argued that Hitler himself was homosexual, he killed gays to hide his shame. Hitler was just like YOU!

Bitch:
A bitch is just a bully in a skirt.

Like any bully, she won't lay off until you stand up to her.

Like any classic bully, she thinks she's tough until her victim fights back. When a victim successfully fights back, the classy bully's demeanor turns from wannabe tough to whiny crybaby. i.e.- a classic bitch

And we've come full circle.
A female bully is a bitch.

Female bullies typically attack you behind your back, trying to ruin your reputation with others. That's their favorite tactic. More confrontational bullies will also attack you openly, in your face.

As with any bully, you cannot appease the bitch by turning the other cheek, being passive, letting it go, etc. Those passive behaviors show weakness, which attracts bullies to attack you more.

There is no way to humor a bully for very long.

There will be no end the attacks and bullying, until you stand up to the bully, or permanently leave. Though often they won't let you leave until after you've stood up to them.

Since bitches are just female bullies, they are like any other bully. Once you realize that, you know who you're dealing with.

Marriage between husband and wife precedes America, our laws, languages and religions. Precedent is an important legal principle, since people should know what to expect from the court, based on the past.
Wow, still trying to advance this logical fallacy.

Brian, does the US Constitution mandate that states must provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws?
Brian_G wrote:
Wow, touched a nerve.
If a man could marry another man or a woman, and a woman could marry another woman or a man, then gender doesn't matter. The argument, do we want our government to do that act? What if, the only way to stop it is a Constitutional Amendment?
As it pertains to the state, gender does not matter. It has already been enacted as law that people may not be denied consideration for employment, loans, housing, etc based upon gender. Why would the legal protections of marriage be any different?
What state interest is served by limiting the protections of marriage to being between a man and a woman?
Brian_G wrote:
We're going to make it happen, starting with Noveember, a President who's pledged a Constitutional Amendment, and a congress willing to pass it with a two-thirds supermajority in both houses. We've got our work cut out for us.
We're not going to stop until we put an end to nondemocratic judicial activist attacks on husband/wife marriage.
Do you mean that funny little candidate that you all are running who was the first governor in the United States to sign a law legalizing same sex marriage? I doubt you should put that much faith in etch-a-sketch Romney.
