I'm sorry. We're obviously persecuting you because we are disinclined to allow you to persecute others. We know it's part of your religion to persecute.

Wrong is wrong and will ALWAYS be wrong? So I guess the Old Testament laws WEREN'T overturned? If they were wrong once they're wrong forever right. Looks like you're deviating from GOD'S PLAN with your make up and your eating pork and your mixed textiles and your lack of facial hair and your doing home improvement on Saturdays...
Marriage isn't a human right? What is it then, an inhuman right?
11/1/2008 5:03:02 PM
Hip? Now that's a definition demanding explanation.

"Sure, I will let you live your life the way you want as long as it agrees with my archaic beliefs."
11/1/2008 6:18:23 PM
So that just means that others will have to stand against you to defend the rights of others.
11/1/2008 6:38:16 PM
Aaaaaand... how do you know God's plan? The Bible doesn't count as evidence.

"Why do you mock someone that is against gay marriage?"
Let's ask a related question. Why did civil rights activists mock someone who is against mixed race marriage?
11/1/2008 7:45:44 PM
Why do you mock someone that is against gay marriage?
Cause you're an intolerant prick. You're not a real person by my standards.
11/1/2008 8:05:49 PM
I suggest that if your worldview is so fragile, you should return to the womb or drink the Kool-aid, your choice..
11/1/2008 8:21:57 PM
You know wrong is wrong and yet you still pump out this bilge?
11/1/2008 8:40:52 PM
"Sure, until you affect my community, society, government, and world views. I have to stand against that, and I always will."
Here's a hint: Affecting your world view isn't actually considered persecution, fuckwit.
11/1/2008 9:15:27 PM
Surprisingly conherent and rational, if bigoted. I give it a 2.
11/1/2008 9:25:03 PM
Any logic or evidence to back up all these gratuitous assertions? No? Didn't think so...
11/1/2008 11:18:09 PM
The world labels you an intolerant bigoted douchebag if you consider what two consenting adults do in their bedroom to be *any* of your business, or if you want to deny civil rights to people. You *should* just mind your own business, *especially* since gay marriage *won't* have a negative impact on you or your community, *will* be a positive step forward for society, and *will* reaffirm the equality of *all* people under US law. You're only complaining because someone told you to STFU and GTFO with your hate.
11/1/2008 11:23:22 PM
SRY, double post.
11/1/2008 11:23:31 PM
No matter how you restate your argument, your opposition to homosexuality and same sex marriage boils down to what it says in your holy book. Secular nations don't base their laws on religious notions, so your objections are effectively null and void.

I hope your child comes out of the closet.

Wrong is wrong is wrong.

/Why do you mock someone that is against gay marriage?/
Same reason why I mock someone who is racist. You are both ridiculous.
/I believe in God, if you don't that's fine. You're differing view doesn't change what I know./
I'm Christian, too, but it's plain to me that we do indeed have differing views.
/We are God's children and he has a plan for us./
Homosexuals are God's children, too.
/There is a reason we are on this earth. We're here to grow and become better people./
And how does denying your fellow man and woman basic rights accomplish that?
/God wants to allow us to become more like him but that can only happen when we follow his plan. There is eternal truth in this world, whether you accept it or not./
Rather presumptuous, aren't you? How do you know what God's plan is and what, pray tell, is this "eternal truth?"
/If you think beyond this cold little rock we live on, you'll find we're part of something bigger. There is a plan and there are rules. What's wrong is wrong, and it ALWAYS will be./
If you're referring to Old Testament laws, then you're wrong. Jesus said that his new covenant basically voided (or updated, if you want to think of it that way) the law of Moses, which is why Christians feel free to eat pork and shellfish.
/God wants a man and a woman to have children and raise a family much like he is now raising us (when we acknowledge him)./
What if that man and woman don't want to have children? What if they can't have children biologically?
/This world wants to do whatever it wants and expects everyone to just say it's ok. Some people have feelings within them that will not accept this; it's called character./
No, it's called pure black spite; it's called being a controlling, interfering busybody.
/It's standing up for what you truly believe in instead of just going to church on Sunday and forgetting the rest of the week./
Well, I suppose that you do deserve some credit for believing in the "practice what you preach" idea. It's too bad that what you believe in is nonsense.
/Why would you mock someone that believes a truth and then lives by it?/
You want to believe that Leviticus is law, then no more pork, polyester blends, and working on Sundays for you.
/The world wants to label you as "in-tolerant" if you do not accept wrongdoings along with the people that practice them./
There is nothing wrong with homosexuality. Being homosexual is not a "wrongdoing."
/I agree that people that practice homosexuality should not be denied every human right, but a perversion of marriage is wrong./
*facepalm* Marriage IS a human right, you moron! And you think that gay marriage is a perversion? What about men who marry girls young enough to be their daughters or granddaughters? You don't think THAT'S a perversion? What about celebrities who only stay married for a week or month before getting a divorce? You don't think THAT undermines marriage?
/IT ALWAYS WILL BE./
Well, Canada, England, Spain, Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, Holland, and Scandinavia say you're wrong.
/Love the sinner but hate the sin./
Well, I suppose that this is better than "Homosexuals are disgusting abominations!" But let me try to reply to this. You're saying that one ought to love a homosexual for the individual person that he/she is, and at the same time, dislike his/her sexual orientation. This could apply if the person you were speaking of were an alcoholic or a drug dealer. You might hate that the person drinks so much or sells drugs and wish that they would stop hurting themselves, but you still love the person anyway. Well, here's a newsflash for you, homosexuality does not hurt anyone! It does not hurt the person, it does not hurt anyone else! It's not a disease to be cured; it's not a destructive behavior that ought to be stopped. So your whole "love the sinner, hate the sin" nonsense is nothing more than patronizing garbage wrapped up as compassion.
/Should I just let everyone live how they want to and mind my own business?/
/Sure, until you affect my community, society, government, and world views./
1. Community = I know quite a few homosexuals and I'm friends with some of them. In most situations, their sexuality does not even come up. Nobody cares that gay couples walk hand-in-hand with each other on the street. Nobody cares what they do at home. That's because first and foremost, they are PEOPLE. Ordinary, normal people (yes, I say normal) who are part of our community and who contribute to it like everyone else does. It is not a big deal, believe me.
2. Society = Let me guess. "OMG, if the homos get their way, then EVERYBODY will want to be gay and gross like them!!!" *sigh* Or maybe our society could even become more tolerant and accepting than it already is. Maybe it could become more tolerable for homosexuals to live in. Maybe it could become more civilized and compassionate, and we all might become the better for it.
3. Government = Just because homosexuals want to get married doesn't mean that they want everybody else to marry homosexuals. Okay? Gays are not interested in the private lives of other people; they're concerned about the future of THEIR private lives, which are being so drastically affected by the ignorance and bigotry of others. And no, having a homosexual president would NOT be a bad thing, any more than having a Muslim or an atheist president would be, as long as he/she did the job well.
4. World views = Yes, heaven forbid that you might come to see homosexuals having rights as a good thing. You were so proud of your so-called deeply held beliefs before, why would homosexuals getting married change them, then?
/I have to stand against that,/
No, you don't. Again, gay marriage does NOT affect you. It does not affect you or me or any other straight person out there who doesn't have a gay relative. The reason why I'm concerned about it is because I want homosexuals to be happy and I want our society to be just and free for all. I'm concerned about it because I want them to receive what the Founding Fathers had promised to American citizens from the very beginning, "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
/and I always will./
And that is the saddest thing of all.
P.S. Horsefeathers for the win.

Does anyone still use the term "Hip" anymore? It smells of 1968, like "groovy."
11/2/2008 7:02:40 PM
All this talk about we are God's children and he is raising us to become more like him is disturbing to me. It's infantilizing. It sounds like Wrong is refusing to grow up so he can deny responsibility for his bigotry.
11/3/2008 3:34:01 AM
altoidSure, until you affect my...world views
Do your world view need that much coddling? Why do you people care so much about what others do with their genitalia? What does it really matter to you?
You're differing view doesn't change what I know.
11/3/2008 6:19:55 AM
"Should I just let everyone live how they want to and mind my own business? Sure,"
Good for you.
"until you affect my community, society, government,"
"and world views. I have to stand against that, and I always will."
BIG FAT FAIL!

Tormentor of Religion
"Love the sinner but hate the sin."
"I hate treason but I love the traitors" - I.L. Caragiale (don't ask)
The point is that one is satire, the other one is stupid "logic" probably based on the first.

Just because the town's name is Sodom doesn't mean there can't be saints living there.
You don't have to believe what we believe, but if there was a majority decision, accept the opinion of the majority as the new rule of the land.
