It wouldn't necessarily be hateful, but it certainly would be pointless. What sort of anti-heterosexual movements has caused you, as a straight person, strife, stress? Were you ever beaten up, murdered, criticized, demoralized, threatened for being heterosexual? Do you need support?

Yes, most religions suit parents raising children. That's my "lifestyle" And it's quite obvious in this country that individual rights are strongly influenced by certain strains of Christianity. Otherwise, gay people would have the right to marry in any state.

Well again our laws are based on the constitution, if you want to claim that our Constitution was based on Biblical Christianity, go for it, me thinks you might get quite an argument from more than a few people on that one! gay people do have the right to marry in any state, just like everyone else.

Ever wonder how women and blacks are able to vote in this country? They didn't get those rights from the founding fathers.

and of course I am not going to join your fantasy that homosexuals self inflicted plight is anything remotely close to that of ones skin color or gender.

You cannot help what your skin color is. You cannot help what gender you are. You cannot help what your sexual orientation is.

Of course when you make something up you get to declare what the rules are, but that doesn't make it real.

So when did you make the conscious decision that you liked people of the opposite sex?

And if you tried would you start liking people of the same sex?

Why would someone "chose" to be gay seeing how people like yourself think of them and act toward them?

And by the way, I am not gay.

If we LGBT's had equal rights, we wouldn't have the NEED to march. Give us our rights and we'll stop marching.

Do you really think your agenda moves forward when some gay guy in the parade is wearing just a jockstrap and doing back flips ?

Gay people must be insecure.

Nobody in our small town has a flag flying proclaiming they are hetrosexual.

Yet 2 women fly that rainbow flag to proclaim to the world they are lesbians.
