Since we've been talking about anti-gay

It seems that a group affiliated with James Dobson (he of Spongebob fame) has decided that there needs to be a national "Day of Truth" to combat the National Day of Silence tomorrow. I had to put their's in quotes because they're truth is that homosexuality is "detrimental" to society. That really seems like more of an opinion than some universal truth to me.

I don't think I've ever heard of the National Day of Silence, though it seems like an interesting idea. I imagine walking around not talking to anyone would make you feel very alone in a crowded room, which is how I would feel if I were gay and a bunch of bigots who wouldn't talk to me anyway.

I haven't taken the time to learn this particular group's name or what exactly their bassackwards approach to living in a pluralistic society is, but I'm more or less sure they're all assholes.

I don't understand why these conservative-types are so intent on interfering with everybody else's life. Deal with your own fucked up life, whack jobs! Leave everyone else alone. We're not bothering you. So why do you insist on ruining other people's lives? Some people are trying to raise awareness of what it might be like to have no one talk to you because you are different, so you are raising awareness that you hate all fags and that you hope they burn in hell. Nice job. I'm sure glad you want to tell some kid that because you want to do some literal interpretation of the Bible that you've never actually read for yourself.

This is going to be taking place in schools, for fuck's sake. I'll let you in a little secret, I think most gay teenagers commit suicide, not because they think they've done anything wrong, but because people constantly tell them they're evil and they are what's wrong with society. That's a heavy burden to put on a 14-year-old's shoulders and people like Dobson should be ashamed of themselves.

Its not that we're bigots (most of us anyway) Its that we don't se society as pluralistic and its also not that we want to "interfere with everyone else's life" its that we don't want their views that we don't believe in forced on us or our children. As for it being detrimental to society, it is a self destructive lifestyle that offers nothing to society as a whole. It is not productive as far as rearing children and conflicts with morality on several levels. Its not psychologically healthy for those involved in the lifestyle either. I'm not railing or angry here - my tone is straightforeward and matter of fact. I have gay friends and I'm ok with them as individuals. I just refuse to endorse their lifestyle and don't want to know about it or hear about it. I also am dead set against them trying to spread their ideologies in a public school setting and lying to kids that have no sense or experience of how to research valid sources. With all this uncorroborated bs on the internet - it seems easy to validate false claims - but most people don't know how to tell if a source is acceptible.

The problem is that this is a pluralistic society. We accept more than one idea about religion and what it means to be an American. That's what being in a free society means.

As for

so is Southern Baptist Christianity by I don't get all up in their faces. (Oh wait, I do)

Anyway, the really fundamental difference between is that yes, you are a bigot. Conservatism is an ideology, liberalism is an ideology, homosexuality is not. It's not a choice, not a "lifestyle" really. It is who they are. The only thing unhealthy about it is the proclivity towards having rocks thrown at your head for being gay.

Yes, you are a bigot. And if you think that having people who are gay exist means that they are "forcing" you and your children to listen to their "ideology" then you are also a fucktard.

You are offending the morality of the family unit. Your CHOICES are immoral and increasing fagots in this country. SHAME ON YOU AND THIS "SOCAIL ACTIVIST": his deeds are against nature. His attitude is patroniozing, assuming all of us Americans think like the abnormal.

STAY IN YOUR CLOSETS AND AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN!!!!!!
