What Christians are for same-sex marriage?
Who are they?
Do they have a name?
Every Christian I know of is against same-sex marriage. Who are these mysterious Christians you tell us are for it?
What cave did you find them in?
Do they get email there?
You must live under a rock, gay marriage is fine for several Christian denominations. The Episcopal church is one.

Canada, Germany and South Africa have Constitutional rights to gender equality. Our US Constitution doesn't.

That's why same sex marriage is unconstitutional.

Paul Ryan wants to defund Planned Parenthood.

This ideological attack would only result in more women losing access to necessary and basic health care.

One in five American women have used Planned Parenthood health services.

That's okay! I'm sure he's got a plan to up the money we send to welfare and schools to take care of these children.

That's almost true, he wants to stop using taxpayer funding for the abortion advocacy group known as Planned Parenthood. I'm with Ryan, stop murdering the unborn with our taxes.

Only a leftist would call abortion, "necessary and basic health care". I call abortion, immoral.

Anyone else think it strange a person claiming to be "straight" going through the convoluted defense of homosexuality, Winston is directly above?
When homosexuals take the Bible turn it upside-down and give it a homosexual spin, we understand that -- but a guy claiming to be straight as an arrow ...?
What's really going on with your sexual orientation, Winston?
Why are you the most foaming-at-the mouth pro-same sex marriage fanatic in this forum?
Wass up with that, fella?
Why do you find it strange that straight people would champion gay rights?
We it not for white people who stood up and died for black civil rights, we'd still be sitting in "Colored" waiting rooms. Do you find it odd they did what they did? Do you think they were secretly black?

Here's another question for you, Winston:
You tell us you're straight and married.
Let's assume you have an adult son.
Let's assume further the annual gay "pride" parade comes by your downtown office window and you look out and see him on a float, half-naked shaking his genitals for one and all.

Do you point him out to the people in your office while yelling "That's my boy!"
No ...?
Why not ...?
In my case, it would depend on how well hung he was.

Thank you for showing the world you have no clue what Planned Parenthood does or what services they provide.

You are our idiot savant! Minus the savant.

This is pretty interesting considering the shift toward mollifying the Tea Party in the choice of Paul Ryan as Vice on Romney's presidential ticket.

The San Diego County Republican Party leadership under Tony Kravarik has been extreme enough to endorse right-winger Carl deMaio for San Diego Mayor rather than the establishment's moderate Nathan Fletcher who responded to the rebuff by fleeing the GOP, becoming an independent and losing the Primary Election.

/sarcasm
I used to be into sadism, necrophilia and bestiality. But then I realized I was just beating a dead horse.

You have no real argument against gay marriage, so you imply there is a connection between homosexuality and immoral activities.

Perversion as Poison
Just read a very good article that makes the point gays and the LBGT agenda ignore the question of morality -- act as if this question has already been settled.
Even in this forum the core question of the morality of homosexual sex is seldom discussed -- and when its brought up the posters is accused of being off-topic.
An act can only be immoral if there is a non consenting party.
There, the issue is settled.
Prof Marvel wrote:
Restricting debate of same-sex marriage to questions of Constitutional Law, skirts the question of the morality of male-to-male anal sex entirely.
Again, if all parties involved want to be, it's moral.
What about male to female anal sex? Or female to male?(Penile penetration isn't the only kind of sex there is.)
Prof Marvel wrote:
Then when a same-sex law is passed in a state as we see in Massachusetts it is used as a tool to normalize homosexuality everywhere else -- most especially the schools.
But the passage of the law does not answer whether homosexuality is a perversion and this is where the LGBT works the big con -- they act like it does the when it most emphatically doesn't.
Result -- in every public school in Massachusetts school children are being taught homosexuality is safe, normal, and as wholesome as mom's apple pie.

And still no answer to my question about your experience with the drag queen. Since you're too timid to give a sensible answer to that one, I'll ask you another. If I was gay, what advantage is there for me to not say so in here?

Where ever they occur the gay "pride" parade has become a detested and protested spectacle locals seek court injunctions to stop.
The Catholic Church has never before been considered a bastion of fundamentalism but gay activists now consider it a "hate group" for getting injunctions against their parades.
But who can blame the Catholic Church? All it was asking of the parade organizers was to re-route their parade during Sunday Mass. Citing their "right" to assemble and freedom of speech, the parade organizers refused.
Freedom of speech is not your right to parade half-nude men pass children.

You're really into those suits and hats. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't even know they existed.
Prof Marvel wrote:
It's not your right to parade men in leather chaps exposing their behinds being led on dog leashes by their "tops" pass families leaving church.
That's not what freedom of speech is.
Betcha got gigabytes of images of that, too!

Can you show us someone in the 1968 March on Washington dressed in a penis suit and erect penis hat?

How about a giant penis float with confetti shooting out of its head?

Or maybe half-nude men in leather chaps exposing their pink ass being led on a dog leashes by their "tops"?

Can you link to 1968 March on Washington photos of any of these things?

If not, why are you implying the LGBT movement and the Civil Rights Movement are equivalencies?
