No, not at all. There are many with whom I disagree but I still respect because they have clearly thought about what they are saying. I don't care to surround myself with sycophants, bc I'll never learn anything.

But you haven't introduced one bit of logic into your arguments and then you want us to believe your feelings aren't irrational. You would go a long way to being credible if you just admitted that your feelings ARE indeed irrational. Then even though we disagreed, I could respect what you have to say.

Trying to hide behind some illogical rantings about nonexistent lifestyles and agendas just makes you look like a liar and a bigot.

I think it would also help if you learned to distinguish reality from tv. It really kills your credibility there, too.

Btw, no one likes militant ANYTHING. Period.

Ok, I don't understand how this works. Can you walk me through it as though I was an idiot?

I agree,

what I find odd about people who are homophobic, is if you remark that their hatred of homosexuals is the same as hating an ethnic group/race they reply that its different, it isnt different!!..hatred is hatred, and it stems from fear, fear of the unknown.

I didn't know until yesterday, either. Click on the scales of your own post that was repped at least once (don't know what it shows otherwise) and you see the number of reps and whether the reaction is "positive" or "very positive," etc.

OK, otherwise it shows "this post has not received any reputation" and your total rep points.

Whatever, there is no reasoning with people such as yourself. <<Shudder>>.
Slavery = evil
Killing ppl for reasons than other pure self-defense = evil
Racism = evil

FWIW, none of these had anything to do with basic human s*xuality and s*xual functions. Calling anti-homos*xuality "bigotry" is indeed novel in that particular regard.

You are apparently pro-gay, so you are just as biased as I am.

Interesting thanks. I guess it's classified as positive or very positive by the number of reps it gets right? So you can only do this for your own posts not others. Shame.

To repeat: I don't hate homos*xuals. I never have. But at the same time, I cannot agree on a moral basis with their chosen s*xual practices.

Exactly. It's so weird to me how this twisted 'logic' works.

It goes right in your list with all the rest.

Anyway it doesn't matter - I have read a few of your posts and you don't strike me as someone who's opinion I would take too seriously anyway.

What do you think being pro-gay entails? As for me, of course I'm pro-gay. I want my gay friends and relations to have the same basic human and legal rights that are available to everyone else. I don't want them to have to lie about who they are in order to make others believe they don't exist.

You're focusing completely on the fact that you think gay sex is icky. I don't care what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms; and most sex is icky, when you really think about it. It's not limited to gays, either. Your married boss may visit a dominatrix once a week. The nice middle-aged couple down the block may be swingers. Your dentist may have a basement full of sex toys and costumes. As someone once said, as long as they're not in the street scaring the horses, who cares?
