Who is stopping all of the gays from marrying anyway? Can't they just find a pastor or officiant of their choice and get married? Is this some type of crime that they will go to jail for?

I would really like Toddy's response to any of what I've said, but he seems to pick and choose what he responds to.

Don't hold your breath.

He sees them but likely can't bring himself to acknowledge the comments in the last half of page four of this thread between me, you and SFP. To do so would acknowledge the problem and he just can't do that.

Also Toddy, I've decided to oppose gay marriage simply out of spite.


Being on SG at LSU and dealing with Spectrum made me oppose it. I just don't want those people to win.

With all the time you spend on this board posting your nonsense, when are you actually in the bedroom sucking your boyfriend's dick? Seriously- you claim to be gay but that would require you to put the keyboard down every now and again and pick up a penis. I just don't see it happening, frankly. Really?


I got banned because I made a joke about a black guy not being on time when Obama when over the time limit in the debates. This was funnier than my joke though

In all fairness, if he responded to every post he would be on here all day

True, but when he does respond, he picks the worst ones to respond to, rather than picking the ones he could actually have a decent conversation over.

Your selective outrage over the Orson Scott Card story is so noted. (The Card story has been shelved btw, because the illustrator refuses to work on the project). I'm sure you'er just as outraged over the COUNTLESS people that have been fired because they do support gay marriage. Why don't you take some time and google this. Just about every week there is a story of a teacher, music director, etc. that is summarily dismissed because of this,. (it is also still legal in 29 states to fire someone for just being gay) Hell, the head of the Illinois GOP came *this close* last week to being fired because he had the audacity to give his PERSONAL opinion as a PRIVATE citizen that gay marriage should be legalized in Illinois. Go take a look at Senator Rob Portman's facebook page. He's being called everything from a f***** lover to the anti Christ because he's changed his mind on this.

I don't always agree on the tactics used in this fight, but to think this doesn't happen on BOTH sides and not acknowledge this is annoying.

Also, go read up on Orson Scott Card a little. This involves a LOT more than his opposition to same sex marriage.

Yes, I have the same level of disdain for both sides. I'm no longer going to pick a side if both are using the same despicable tactics.

So, you support using the same tactics as those you oppose? You do realize that makes you no better than them, right?

And y'all shouldn't sink to their level. As I said before, y'all had my support, but not anymore.

Also, what has Card done that was so despicable? Supported the Mormon church? Spoken out against gay marriage?

FYI toddy is on record for saying "whatever works, man" in regards to whatever tactics needed to gain legislative acceptance. He isn't concerned with his own hypocrisy.

Toddy, how angry did their tactics make you? How much did it piss you off?

Do you honestly think that you wouldn't get that same response by using the same tactics?

They create nothing but resentment, anger, and fear of speaking or acting freely. That won't result in acceptance. That hasn't resulted in racial acceptance, and y'all are going down that same road.

He wants to criminalize homosexuality. He's argued for the overthrow of the American government because of it's refusal to ban gay marriage and criminalize homosexuality.

Look, I cringe a little when I see some of the tactics employed by a few in this struggle. But that's just it, it's not that many (on either side) that resort to the extreme tactics. I realize this, and you should realize this to. These people get the most attention in the media however, because it's the most sensational.

Considering your support and continuous postings about the chic fil a bull shite and your support for getting businesses shut down that aren't gay friendly. You aren't fooling anyone.

Look, I honestly don't have a problem with you personally. I respect how you stand up to a lot of crap on here. But don't twist the truth. You are ok with any means necessary for legislative acceptance and you admitted it.

Please find one post where I supported the Chick fil a protests. I was pretty clear that I thought the whole thing was silly.

So you think people making informed decisions about where they spend their money based on how companies conduct themselves is bullshite? Figures.

Oh, ummm, well...

I'll give you that. That is pretty bad.

From my point of view, I can't fully understand this struggle. The same with the struggle against racism. I don't have a dog in either fight, but just as I say to those who use despicable tactics to fight racism, not calling that segment of your movement out is basically condoning their actions, IMO.

Other than physically harming someone or victimizing them in some other tangible way, what would you say is "despicable"?

Glitter bombing people that disagree with you is acceptable to draconian apparently.
