    You mean they made up their own definition of a word to suit their agenda? Sounds a lot like what they did to the word "Marriage" doesn't it?

    Once again I need to ask. Exactly what rights do I as a heterosexual male get that gays are not getting. Please list them. I'll wait.

    I agree. The goal isn't necessarily to change her mind. It's to change the mind of other lurkers (all of which are not posting).

    Calling names doesn't help a cause. You (Nova) know how some people say stuff like "Stuff like that give Christians a bad name?" Honestly, the same logic applies to liberal ideas. When liberals call conservatives names, it turns off those who might be middle of the road or undecided.

    I think that homophobia is real.

    I don't think homophobia is somebody who has religious beliefs against homosexuality or somebody who prefers the nuclear family.

    I think homophobia is where one feels threatened by homosexuals enough to want to hurt them physically or in other ways. Let's face it. The homosexuals in Russia are obviously considered a threat.

    The' "You're a closeted queer" because you don't do everything I want' argument is also another tactic used to shut down opposition... Gays have enjoyed 2 decades of ever increasing "tolerance and acceptance" but that was never their true goal. They have pushed people too far and people are pushing back. Gays don't know how to react to this new found resistance to their demands...


    I have not said that the video/s are fake. I have questioned (and with good reason) the veracity and context of it/them.... Lord KNOWS that gays have always been forthright in their intentions
    You purposely ignored the points that noonwitch made in favor of saying the same stuff over and over again. Saying the same stuff over and over again and ignoring the points one makes is not debating. That's shutting down debate.

    So, you think that the word homophobia is meant to shut down debate (even when gays are beaten up)? Well, I think socialist is a word conservatives use to shut down debate (no seriously, I do think that).

    I invoked the Nazis a few weeks ago, in regards to the situation in Russia. I was very clear that I did not consider opposition in the US to gay marriage to be the same thing as what is going on in Russia.

    It is scary-there is a big difference between Americans who oppose gay marriage on religious grounds and Russians trying to make gays invisible and silent.

    You have got your finger on the issue. Some of the people in Russia doing gay bashing do identify as Nazis. Some of the people who are braying about this situation in Russia being different in its essence are simply trying to deny that their religious bigotry and political commentary is part of the support system for people who do violence. The gay bashers in Russia are doing what they do with the tacit permission of the government and the Russian Orthodox Church. The gay bashers in the US have traditionally enjoyed cultural support as well.
