Is HIV Testing Motivating Men Who Have Sex With Men To Forego Condoms?
Loren, you're quite correct. You'll notice that the opposition to gay marriage has fallen into two distinct camps. The first camp outright opposes gay marriage for religious reasons.....period. Then you have the second camp who are "smart" enough to realize that using the religious argument is not a winnable strategy in court. Instead they have widened their argument beyond two same-sex people getting married and have included with their opposition the whole family unit, proclaiming (using made up pseudo-sociological "science"), "What about the children?" They insist that children MUST have both a female and a male parent in order to live a normal life. They insist that same-gender parents are somehow harmful to children despite evidence to the contrary. And there are actually fringe members of this group who have even suggested that adopted children of opposite sex parents are somehow on a lower level tier of legitimacy, therefore making adopted children of same sex parents and even worse proposition.
If this wasn't such a serious topic with serious ramifications, their arguments would be laughable. But I'm not laughing. I'm utterly disgusted.
Between Dallas' and James' last two links, I think what is going on is obvious: there are people out there who want the right to discriminate. Some use the church and the bible as excuses; some are just bigoted.While they have a right to their opinions, the realization of those opinions have no place in government at any level.
West Virginia paper’s anti-LGBT column wants death for ‘n*ggers, spics, kikes and wops’
I get frustrated by the power of the internet to inflate, inflame, misinform, and propagandize. It's so hard to sort it out. When I learn a report of abuse is fake, it pisses me off royally.
Reminds me of a local "gay leader" who I knew in Indiana in the early 80s. He was supposedly getting death threats. It always got a lot of attention. But no proof was ever offered. Was it true? Passive aggressive manipulation? I never knew, and never will.
Integrity is one of the most important things we can have. No one is perfect, of course. But when people quit believing you, and become angry at being manipulated..... Cry wolf.
I'd rather say woof.
I saw that video last year. Absolutely horrifying.
Manking is a terrible predator, and his preferred prey is himself.
Christianity: murder, torture, abuse, discrimination, rape, violence, lies, misinformation, bullying, aggression, ignorance, exploitation.
Sorry, the video link didn't show in my previous post:

Story update/revision. In the interest of providing truth and facts I offer the following:
Stoning Death Of Gay Somali May Never Have Happened
"LGBTQ Nation is reporting that they cannot confirm the story of a allegedly gay Somali teen who was reportedly stoned to death last week as punishment for being gay. This is an unfortunate reality with regards to Somalia. The nation basically has no functioning government and little in the way of reliable news."
That being said, worldwide human rights groups are quite aware that vigilante justice commonly occurs throughout certain regions of some African countries. As this article further states:
"This is not the first time that a story about a supposedly gay man being executed horrifically in Africa has proven to be only partially true. A graphic video of a man being lit on fire while wearing a tire that circulated in 2011 proved to be true up to a point. A man was executed, but he had been accused by the local mob of being a thief, not of being gay."
And last year, this horrific video surfaced.
