Linc: Re: July 10.....Jesus has historically been associated with the struggle to end oppression. America has come to feel that justice-- and God-- is on the side of gay rights. Homophobes are seen as "the bad guys".

Really?! Where do you get your information???? Probably the Gay Society of America?

I read widely and discuss issues with a lot of different kinds of people; I'm not stuck in a religious propaganda bubble like you. Regular media outlets have exposed homophobia to the light of day, and it is on the decline everywhere in Western democracies-- if you don't realize that you are a hermit.

They're here. They're queer. Get used to it. Always loved the sentiment there. Freedom.

There is no rational, realistic, documented, non-dogmatic reason to deny marriage rights to gays and lesbians whatsoever.

It's really that simple.

this is from that article Adam posted above:

Quote

Kari Moxnes, a feminist sociologist specializing in divorce, is one of the most prominent of Norway's newly emerging group of public social scientists. As a scholar who sees both marriage and at-home motherhood as inherently oppressive to women, Moxnes is a proponent of nonmarital cohabitation and parenthood. In 1993, as the Norwegian legislature was debating gay marriage, Moxnes published an article, "Det tomme ekteskap" ("Empty Marriage" ), in the influential liberal paper Dagbladet. She argued that Norwegian gay marriage was a sign of marriage's growing emptiness, not its strength. Although Moxnes spoke in favor of gay marriage, she treated its creation as a (welcome) death knell for marriage itself. Moxnes identified homosexuals--with their experience in forging relationships unencumbered by children--as social pioneers in the separation of marriage from parenthood. In recognizing homosexual relationships, Moxnes said, society was ratifying the division of marriage from parenthood that had spurred the rise of out-of-wedlock births to begin with.

It's straight people whose eyes and minds are opening, not just gays who are realizing that there's nothing inherently wrong or bad about themselves.

Conservatives realize that homophobes are increasingly seen as the bad guys, so they make the excuse that it's because of the liberal media or the gay mafia or whatever conspiracy theory they think I'm behind. There's no conspiracy, people are just wising up, including religious people.

This is why support for the California gay marriage ban is dropping like a stone, and Florida looks poised to be only the second state after Arizona to actually vote down a constitutional ban on gay marriage.

Linc, why I asked is I thought you meant historically in the Bible as many erroneously believe.

In the United States, homosexuality was considered so taboo 40 years ago that it couldn't be mentioned in public. Today, it is a topic of open discussion. It was illegal in every state a generation ago but is legal in all 50 states today. More companies are acknowledging the rights of married gays, and gay marriage is recognized by an increasing number of local and state governments. There are still anti-gay bigots in some corners of the Bible Belt, but just as racism lingered in the backward areas of the country for decades after the rest of the country took a more enlightened attitude, so it is with prejudice aginst gays.

Yeah, but Duffus says gays had it better back then. He's a man of god so he must be right. Right?

Well, according to Duffus, they're nothing but narcissists who never do anything for anyone unless it brings them pleasure and who are incapable of experiencing the "real" love that any heterosexual is capable of feeling. And, according to Cheap, they're the most violent people who ever lived and they're aroused by the smell of fecal matter.

What were you thinking?

I know several. They are all close associates of mine thru professional relations I have with thier employers. I'm also one of the more personal business associates folks have so even the professional relationships I have are borderline friendships anyway.

I also know of the negative effects that homosexuality adds up to in society. There are links to those effects here...........[www.selectsmart.com].

Adam Ant, I've posted reports of that. Spun propoganda is posted in return & all the while homosexuals & their pals cry out about an imaginary attitudinal bias held against gays. An imaginary attitudinal bias is a non-issue. It's thier behaivior & the participations they indulge in that are. They rail on & on about how mean & hatefull those stoneage, non scientific, anti-homosexuals are.

A very loving & tolerent crowd the homosexuals here most certainly aren't.

One of the gays I know is just about the nicest guy, you know? I always kid him with "is that to heavy for you" when he carries whatever.

He said to me that he has another job at night. In his case I figured there is cross dressing involved. It's just what one would figure in this guys case. He said "You would be a'scaird if I told you".

No, I would expect it to be cross-dressing escort or prostitution. Where do they get this phobic crap from?

Can you guess what it involves? Cross dressing trans........whatnotisms.

One day he said to a girl that he wanted to "get his boobs done". I overheard it. I said "you don't have boobs. You have a chest." He looked at me with this look that said "I'm a'scaird of the truth".

Tony is so obviously gay and he hates himself so much for it that I almost feel sorry for him. Almost. He'd be so much more likable if he just came out already.

What does that have to do with his being gay?

One day he said to a girl that he wanted to "get his boobs done". I overheard it. I said "you don't have boobs. You have a chest." He looked at me with this look that said "I'm a'scaird of the truth".


And how does this make him 1) typical of gay people and 2) a threat to society?

Seriously, Toe, you go out of your way to find the most extreme examples to defend your idiotic remarks.

It's no spin that gay people can be every bit as loving and tolerant as anyone else. Are you really going to sit there and tell me that my friends and family are simply lying or under my evil spell? Those who love and trust me just don't know how bad I am for them? Whenever I help someone regardless of their beliefs, I'm just lying to get on their good side? The gay people who are saving lives as doctors, policemen, firefighters and soldiers are actually harming society? How do you know all this?

Tony is the worst kind of liar, Ant. First and foremost, he's lying to himself, second, he lies to everyone else and, third, he is so afraid of the truth that he will spend all his mental power to spin any old stupid tale to justify his lies. Sorry bastard will never know the liberated feeling of just being authentic and letting the chips fall where they may. A whole new group of people will hate him but a whole different group will admire and accept and love him just for being real. Trade off is worth the personal knowledge that truth and freedom win no matter what. Tony, there's still time...

I'd just like to know exactly what he thinks I'm doing that's hurting him as a member of society. I work my jobs, pay my taxes, hang out with my gay AND straight friends, play in a band, do some short comedy films, perform with an improv/theater group, visit my family and send them money for things they need, post on various message boards, date guys I'm attracted to sexually AND emotionally, take care of my diabetic cat, cook my own meals, enjoy porn, contribute to cancer and AIDS walks, participate in various health studies, ride my bike, work out at home, watch a lot of movies (especially horror, fantasy, comedy and foreign films), listen to those who need a sympathetic ear, and generally treat everyone with kindness and respect.

To hear him tell it, my very existence is harmful to society, but he has yet to tell me just how this is so.

Please don't let him and his kind get under your skin, Ant. Those of us like you and me are far more likely to inherit the world. It's so much more sensible and important to focus on kindness and love and finding one's personal meaning in life than it is to make sure other people are (not) f*cking the right people. You are paving the way for future generations of gay people so that they will not have to suffer the way you and yours are doing now. Just be proud and don't even try to understand a bigot. There will always be backward-thinking individuals. unfortunately, but they will be fewer and further between and will eventually be shunned for their stupidity, ignorance and bigotry. The future's so bright, better wear shades. Gucci, I assume? smoking smiley

I don't really let it get under my skin, it's just puzzling how people can be so illogical.

Things are already better than when I was a young gay kid. I am sure things are only going to get better.
