How cute. What a nice young man. People who oppose homosexuality disgust me. How other express their love does not affect anyone but themselves. The sooner people can get over their little homophobic fits and realize that in the end of the day, we are all humans trying to live, the better.

I would reply with a long, heart-felt, message to you but I've gotten so tired of trying to convince ignorant, religious, judgemental people as yourself that being gay isn't a choice that I realised I can't change your opinion. Have fun with your hate.  
  
I'm sure that's what God would've wanted you to do.

Why would someone choose to be teased, rejected and alienated by society and their loved ones?  
  
Why would they choose to become a sin in God's eyes? They don't, and if you hold everything said in the Bible so close to your heart, then it'd be a sin to touch leather on Sunday. It'd be a sin to cut your hair. And to eat crawfish.  
  
My brother is gay, and I respect him as a person the most. He grew up in a Christian family. He lived an utterly normal life, no joke. He played pokemon with his cousins and had a little sister and little brother and friends and he went to school and learned.  
  
Have some respect please. He didn't choose to be gay. Why would he? My parents hate gays. So if he could go back and choose, he would MOST 			*******		 COURSE choose straight.

I don't think you know how gay people work... I'm sure that the amount of gay people who enjoy sounding is very small. And if they want to " **** eachother in the dick" whose business is it? How would that affect you at all? Anon, you so crazy.

if pussy ass gays were meant to be then they could ******* reproduce but they cant so they should all be exterminated

well considering im pretty sure you blocked me from commenting on that post of White Makes in german your pretty ******* stupid because weiss macht means white power dumbass ******
User avatar #195 to #192 - camPOOFeron (12/03/2011) [-]
I didn't block you, the reply limit was reached.
And no, "weiss macht" is an abbreviation of "weiss macht frei", meaning "White makes free". It is an old white power slogan.

no because being white meansyour a person and gays arent people

There aren't words to describe how awesome that was.

I support gay marriage. The only thing wrong with this is that if a conversation pops up among my peers about it, I'm immediately ridiculed as gay. Personally, I just find it weird that people have such a big problem about it.

well when marriage defines alot of the stuff you can do such as you can act on each other's behalf, for example, if there is a medical situation where you are on life support, your spouse can decide to pull the plug if there is little or no chance of recovery.

If one of you dies, the other automatically owes everything you had, if you wern't married, it would be subject to estate taxes and chances are that the person's parents would have a legitimate shot at getting all of the person's belongings, If you don't have a will, a spouse is the first benificiary,

If you live together for a long time, and things change, there is no divorce process, this can be bad because if all of your money (and house, cars etc) are in the other person's name you will have no legal right to any of it when you split up, in marriage, even if something is in only one person's name, it is part of the estate that gets split.
so, if all that doesn't mean anything to you then go ahead and say "I can't believe we still let government define "marriage" for us" cause until you realize that legally it is better to be married.then your just gonna keep on looking like an idiot.

"I can't believe we still let government define "marriage" for us, as though our personal lives were the business of some clown at City Hall. It's almost 2012 for ***** sake, they need to stop using government to force us to live by other people's values." where in that statement did you say any of what i said. what you said, is that you shouldn't need government to define it, and i told you reasons that you do.

first of all religous and secular are the same thing
and second you basicaaly said what i said
at first you said all the feelings rather than legal stuff matters and i said the legal stuff matters aswell whch means i added to what said and now you are basically putting what i said and what you said together? last statement by me on this topic...
i think two human beings of the same sex should be able to wed if they love each other just the same as two humans of the opposite sex can . still have all the same rights that anyone else that is married does . and don't take somthing i might have said on accident in this comment to literal just take the gist and go with that k, thanks bye
User avatar #227 to #226 - michaeldemoin (12/07/2011) [-]
sorry secular is not the same as religous she keeps saying non secular meaning not religious and i just ooked it up sorry bout that my world history teacher got me confused

Bible is man made and I do not trust most of its teachings. Is ******* a guy or kissing a guy is how you are happy, then by all means. But I dont wanna hear about it everyday from a flamboyant gay man that speaks in a lisp and says "I love giving him head etc"

Now cmon, that is something we do not wanna hear... from man or woman cause I like privacy between the sheets
