They also make out like bandits with our tax dollars each time they successfully sue any governmental entity as they get paid those lawyer fees. They are so crooked and us taxpayers are sick and tired of paying the fees for their frivilous lawsuits!

Even more reason to find the ACLU repulsive.

It wouldn't be hateful but it sure would be dumb.

This poll proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "tolerant" inclusive" "diversity" leftist really have no tolerance, diversity or inclusiveness and are just your basic bigots shoving “their” lifestyles down out throats.

I'm actually going to the gay pride parade here in a couple hours. I fully expect to see protestors. If heteros want to have a straight pride parade, then by all means go for it. Just don't be surprised if there are protestors at that parade as well & especially don't get p'd off about it if you don't get p'd off about protestors at gay pride parades.

I voted "no" so your accusation is incorrect.

"Beyond a shadow of a doubt". Right. Take a deep breath once in a while and open your mind to the fact that the world isn't as black and white as you may think it is.

While Caucasian pride parades are almost always viewed as racist, there are plenty of other parades for individual white groups that aren't, St. Patrick's Day and Columbus Day (which is called Italian American Pride in more liberal venues) being the two most common in my mind, but there are many others for various immigrant groups. I think the reasoning behind not considering those parades racist would apply here, as well. If the parade is really a celebration of something heterosexual, I don't think it would considered homophobic. If instead it is done as a demonstration of the inferiority of homosexuality then it would be considered homophobic, although anti-homosexual would be a more appropriate term because I think you can hate something without fearing it (although the two are often related).

Almost every dictionary defines "homophobic" as meaning a fear or contempt of homosexuality. The anti-gay crowd loves to crow about not having a fear of homosexuals, but there are many words in the English language whose meanings aren't as literal as they would make this word out to be.

I think there's more going on here than the writer would like to admit.
