No, he's right, this just reinforces the gay stereotype and hopefully sets it back 50 years.

NARTH are a group of anti-homosexual Christian Psychologists who have been refused membership of the American Psychological Association because of their unethical practices and unscientific "studies".

They have an anti-homosexual agenda.

Hardly a reputable source.

You must be joking. Or have no understanding at all about Professional Associations and their Codes of Conduct and Ethical Codes.

NARTH is a relatively small group of anti-gay Christian psychologists. Their "ex-gay" practices are unethical according to every major psychological/psychiatric/medical etc association in America.

I can just imagine those gays picketing in Salt Lake City with signs that read "hate is not a family value" and then turning around and cussing the black people in the crowd.

Or the litttle old woman who had the cross knocked out of her hand while they were screaming that they demand tolerance

With this kind of behavior the gay community isn't getting more respect and it will cause more intolerance towards their lifestyle.

Since there is freedom of speech, they should allow both sides to give their opion and not by going into businesses and scaring customers away. Some shops have lost so much revenue that they had to fire workers and I can't believe that this is what the gay people want.

The public had a chance to vote and every one had the freedom to go out and say what they had to say and the people have spoken against it. If the gay community don't like it they can follow the legal way to try to change it and behave like people who show respect towards others....this is not the case right now and I'm very disappointed with the gay community and some famous gay people who could speak out and say that if they want to change peoples mind they should do it by talking and discussing what they want and their views on this issue...not by violence and disrespect.
The business owners tried to make gay peoples' lives miserable by giving money to a cause that tramples their rights.

If you provoke a bee hive who's fault is it if you get stung?

Yeah, but at least Christians aren't out there picketing gay businesses. They at least are trying to accomplish it the democratic way.

I don't understand why gays get so huffy over a technicality of the word "marriage" vs. Civil Union.

My rights have been abridged before and yet you don't see me out there picketing restaurants who may have supported it.

Because gays don't try to trample Christians' rights.
