Then apparently, EVERYONE is ignorant because gay anal sex IS the first thing that pops up when someone mentions AIDS....
I'm so sure you polled "everyone." Maybe everyone in your little backwater holler. Do they say that about women, too? More women than men have AIDS, but don't let the facts stand in the way of your bigotry.

Here's another proof of my claim, same sex marriage is bad for homosexuals:
<quoted text>Rose, a same sex marriage supporter, has just outed a homosexual for imagined political gain. If that's not harming gays, outing them by name on a public forum, what is?
Down with the supporters of same sex marriage and their evil methods.
Are you retarded? George Rekers outed himself by his actions...TWO YEARS AGO. He was a founding member of the Family Research Council, a rabidly anti-gay organization. He also testified as an "expert witness" in several court cases claiming homosexuality was a choice and a bad one. Once again proving the old addage: The ones that scream the loudest have the most to hide. He defines the word hypocrite.

Not with words, he didn't self identify. How would being a victim in a police raid, "outing himself"? By mentioning his name and outing him on a public forum, you violate Topix's terms of service regarding unauthorized release of third party information. Shame on you.

It's not anti-gay, by your admission it employs gay people. What's up with that?

No, a hypocrite deceives others, not himself. He is a fallible human being, he succumbed to temptation, he didn't become evil because he had gay sex. It's bad that same sex marriage supporters defame him. Shame on all of them.

Let's move on, suppose the left comes up with a new political plan to change our laws; will they out you next?

WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
The repeal of prop 8 was bought and paid for by the mormon church. How was that majority vote.

You left out a few details....[Gee...imagine that...?]

Nazism started out as a socialist party, but under the leadership of your buddy Adolf, embraced the Italian facism view--Hitler wanted to change the "Socialist" to "Social Revolutionary" but by the time he took the reigns, "Socialist" was already ingrained into the common vernacular and stuck, regardless as to how radically right he took the party politics.

But, thank you once again for trying to pass of a half-truth as factual!

Once again Brainless, no one outed him on topix. This happened ages ago. If you google the man's name you'll see several articles about his behavior. Yep, he's a hypocrite. He's been deceiving others all along with his preaching of hatred for homosexuals while being a closeted gay man. He's continued with the deciet by lying about his purpose for hiring the young man from RentBoy.

Nazti: www.urbandictionary.com/define.php...

1. natzi. F*cking morons who cannot spell "Nazi" correctly.

Used in a sentence: "I weesh I wuz a NATZI cuz i kant fuhckinnn speel"...

Though it was called the "National Socialist German Workers' Party", Nazi philosophy (FASCISM) was/is a political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government and has NOTHING what so ever to do with SOCIALISM. Something you would know if you'd graduated from middle school or knew how to perform a BASIC internet search.

But THANKS SO MUCH for posting verification that you're an ignorant under educated f*ckwad.

It's sort of pointless to post when you're drunk, Brian. You make no sense whatsoever!

1. There was no police raid. WTF?
2. His "story" was all over the press.... TWO YEARS ago.
3. He lied UNDER OATH giving testimony in a Court trial. That IS deceiving others


Read the fucking story, Brian.

Marriage is defined as a union between a man & a woman. And since there is no man in your relationship, you aren't in a real marriage.
You sound like a miserable little man who is pissed because no one give a flying f*ck if you "approve of" or "believe in" their MARRIAGES.

If you don't believe me call your parents, your ex wife or the kids that avoid you like the plague, and if they aren't screening their calls to avoid you, they'll tell you the same thing.

Reached deep to twirl that one... I'm surprised you stooped so low at your age.

You expect a lying narcissist to give to anyone but themselves???

I guess Cathy really, really believes in saving marriage from impostors...
