You know race, religion, sexual orientation, adulterous husband, high school senior, etc.

    Even if every place in America was gay friendly, I would not wish anyone to be so. This is not the same thing as being left or right handed. I open to hearing how it is.
    Most of the gay people I respect are the ones that focused on their individual strengths and not their sexuality. Those who kept it fairly quiet and not a public matter.

    Alan Bloom, Justin Raimondo, and Freddie Mercury come to mind.

    Freddie Mercury? Come on, lead singer for a band named Queen?:D

    Yeah...everyone knew he was gay, but he kept his private life pretty quiet during their heyday.
    It was pretty obvious wasn't it? :p

    If I had kids, I wouldn't want them to be gay in this place either, but not because theres anything wrong with it. The problem is with the people who think they are the guardians of morality (read: bronze age superstitions) who foster the hostile environment.



    Really, why is this murder news, out of the thousands that happen every year involving date rape? Because the culprit was gay? Who cares? Why, of all things, is anyone calling for what would surely be a tabloid media circus around another murder? Personally, I would rather the press spent a little less time being police report dispensers and super tabloid media frenzy generators.

    And honestly.... there is a whole industry of right wing geared media that does nothing but dispense horror stories every time a homosexual looks askance at someone else... so lets not pretend no one is paying attention to these little stories. I get picked on sometimes for posting in all the gay related threads, but look where the stories are all coming from! Endless supplies of bigoted worldview reinforcing anecdotes circulate these networks... just what the doctor ordered to put a stop to any doubts that might creep inside ones head.. God forbid one might entertain the notion that the moral defenders just might have it wrong. The 'mainstream' media may have their pathologies oriented a little differently... but these nonsense stories filled with righteous indignation that get posted in thread after thread (megs) is the flip side of the same coin. I see no reason to encourage any of it.
    Why does any murder appear as national news when murder is so common today? Why did the Matthew Shepperd murder get the media coverage it did but the guy next door who murders his wife doesn't even make the second page of the local paper?

    BTW what his the whole industry of right wing media that is geard to do nothing but dispense horror stories everytime a homosexual looks askance at someone else? Some examples would be nice. Not examples of the stories but of this whole industry you refer to.

    Why is it that we MUST change the way we live, think, act, marry, ect.... for 1% of the population?? I won't even touch the fact that we HAD to endanger ourselves with a head-in-the-sand mentality towards AIDS because it affected a particular "group".



    There were and are reasons why society shuns this activity.

    What the heck is a hate crime anyway? Isn't a crime against another pretty much a negative emotion. Why with this logic, sociopaths who stalk and kill should be tried under a LOVE Crime charge. Afterall, they sometimes kill who they swear they love.

    Maybe the "problem" is that the murder of someone because they are gay is so rare that it makes big news, while murder by gay people is so common that it's boring. Just like the murder of a black person by a white person is rare and newsworthy, while murder by blacks is common. I'm sure wilbur will agree.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Don't forget the whole industry of right wing media that is geard to do nothing but dispense horror stories everytime a black guy kills a white guy.

    Did the homosexual kill the straight man because he was straight? Otherwise this story has no relevance to the homosexual being killed for being a homosexual.
