re: And just when you thought West Monroe couldn't get any gayer...


I don't think everyone is saying that gays need to be lambasted, run out of town, or discriminated against. Phil Robertson was saying that even though gay sex is a sin and that God judges it as such, he would never treat a gay person (or any other sinner) differently than anyone else. God judges sinners for their sins against God (homosexuality, bestiality, coveting, worshiping false Gods, ect). People judge others for their sins against other people (lying, rape, cheating, stealing, murdering, ect). It is not for man to judge his fellow man for their sins against God alone. THAT is what Phil was saying. Homosexuality may be a sin, but that he would not treat a gay person differently because of it.

This article basically says that all people like Phil Robertson are evil, judgmental, bigots, which is wrong. Just because his father was a Christian and an a-hole (if his story is 100% accurate and not exaggerated like many similar accounts) doesn't mean that all Christians, or even Phil Robertson who he names, are bigoted a-holes.

re: And just when you thought West Monroe couldn't get any gayer...


then what did he say if it was not, "I'm not gay and don't see the appeal, and it is a sin (like bestiality, and sleeping around), but I wouldn't treat anybody any differently because of it because judgment is reserved for God"? That's what it seemed like he said to me

He says his Dad was a "Phil Robertson," but I highly doubt the real Phil would "hate" one of his kids even if they were gay.

I was saying what I interpreted Phil to have said. I know what the gay kid said in his article and I think the gay kid doesn't understand Phil's statements and just is making a commentary on how calling homosexuality a sin is very painful to homosexuals and that his father was a dick who didn't love his own son because his son was gay. Phil advocated nothing of the sort. If anything, Phil was the perfect example of tolerance as the dictionary defines it. Even though he didn't agree with it, he was not going to treat people who do any differently.

People still do that? That is so 1998.

yes. homosexuality is a disorder and a perversion and should not be acknowledged as being normal in any way. So the federal and state governments should deny the right to marry to all homosexuals.

It is not a human right to redefine words and centuries old practices to suit your personal moral and political views and agenda.
Same sex marriage is older than religious marriage. Your assertion that those who support same sex marriage rights are attempting to change the definition of anything whatsoever is uninformed, dishonest, and absurd.
quote:

Do not call them the same.
They're the same, whether you like it or not. A couple who are wed in New York are recognized in all 50 states.

Your points in this post are 100% factually wrong. Now that you've been informed by me, any similar assertions in the future will be labeled what they are: lies.

Honestly, most people wouldn't give them a second look if this were true. Most gay folks go through life unnoticed or without sticking out. The few obnoxious ones unfortunately do want to stand out.


This is very true.

I am a gay rights supporter. I have several gay friends.

I went out with them on bourbon with a large group of other friends and got chastised because I didn't go to the gay bar and that made me a "gay basher" and "bigot" and "not accepting."

I know most gays aren't like this. But there is a vocal minority of gays who love to play the victim over things they actually aren't victims of. If you want to play the victim, bitch about not being able to marry or not being able to have a spouse inherit your benefits/estate without a death tax.

Basically, people should just live their lives

I'm really glad that this thread doesn't represent the views of most of America, and that the backwards elderly fricks are dying out. If this offends you, grow a pair. That's all I'll say about this.

I doubt that. What's your source? Immorality is still immorality so even if your rather bold statement that gay marriage is older than marriage as understood by the clear thinking makes no difference. Homosexuals should be denied the privilege to marry.

I've seen some pompous arse statements made in here before, but this one is near the top. So whatever you say is now the universal standard for truth, or is it Wikipedia?

Judging from its title, I thought this was a thread about Adam McConathy.

quote:

A. Where are homosexuals denied their right to due process?
Hard to answer that question directly and correctly since the question misses the point. Keep in mind that I'm not grandstanding for "gay rights"; I'm specifically supporting "same sex marriage rights." It's important to differentiate that since we all know that a homosexual man may marry the same people that a heterosexual man can and a heterosexual man is, in nearly 40 states, not permitted to marry the same people a homosexual man is not permitted to marry.

A man and a woman may consent to marry each other regardless of their sexualities, and I think everyone here agrees that they should be so permitted; therefore, sexuality isn't the issue.

It is important to know that the issue is that when there are two pairs of citizens each consenting to a social, personal, public union they call a marriage, each couple has natural rights that include but are not limited to property rights, personalty rights, child custody rights, etc. When citizens have rights, those rights are to be protected by their government.

When the government recognizes and protects the marriage rights of one couple but not those of another solely because of the sexes of the parties involved, that is a clear and obvious violation of due process rights. It is discrimination not of one's sexuality, but of one's sex.
quote:

B. What amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right to marriage?
The basic human right to consent to marriage is a Liberty. We are so endowed by our Creator. Liberty is above all constitutions, rendering the fact that I don't know of an amendment to our Constitution that enumerates the right to marriage irrelevant.
