I find that the comments that come from the anti-LGBT people are usually people that also happen to be religious. I'm seeing a strong correlation between religion and anti-whatever. It's what their book of lies tells them. They also like to say, "But I'm not __phobic, I just don't agree with this lifestyle" as if that doesn't make them phobic.


Believing that homosexuality is a sin does not make you homophobic. Treating homosexuals with hate, discrimination, or prejudice makes you homophobic.

Also, believe what you want. As I have said before, I used to be an atheist, and had no problem with homosexuality. I am now Christian and believe it is a sin. It doesn't change how I feel about the person committing the sin. Not that there aren't some bigots who hide behind religious beliefs, because there are. However, truly following Christ offers no opportunity to hate anyone, regardless of sin.

Calling Christians and other religious people bigots because of beliefs is an outright assault on religion, usually Christianity, and it is far from the truth. However, you can call my bible whatever you want. As I told someone else, it took me 28 years to find my faith, and it means a lot more to me than any slander you can to toss around.

Also, regardless of my religious beliefs, I believe in the separation of church and state, and therefore support gay marriage rights.

God bless you.


I've been thinking about what you said, and I realize the difference between merely tolerating a group and accepting their actions. I didn't mean to offend you earlier, but it was just my honest opinion, and I felt I made one too many assumptions regarding your behaviors towards homosexuals, and now I am rethinking my earlier beliefs about what is bigotry.

Yes, I am sorry. I was perhaps wrong, until someone makes a good point yet again.

Why can't there be more moderates in the world… why does everyone have to be extremists… sure, I guess as far as moderatism goes I lean towards the left… but god… both the politics and needless drama in extremism… are people so bored with their lives as to torture themselves with it…?

I genuinely appreciate your understanding on this. Thank you.

Gonna be honest, I don't think I've seen ANY threads saying, "I hate faggots" or "Gays don't belong!" I've seen a SMALL amount of replies like that but definitely no threads.

Me neither. Maybe I'm not paying much attention.

Who is anti-GBT in the forums? I've never seen that much of it.


That's what I was thinking. Maybe I'm just missing it.

To tell you the truth, I came to this thread expecting discussion about how neo-progressives practice bigotry, and that there is double-standard at play (when they do it, it's different, et cetera).

Because it's stupid that people think that is always natural and acceptable. I get that some people can't help but be homo, but there are a bunch of pretenders thrown into the mix and they make things worse for everyone since all they want is attention, not acceptance.

It's no coincidence that a majority of these loudmouths seem to be teens. Sometimes, you have to trim the plant and force it to grow along some stakes so that it doesn't get all over the place. You can't let people like that make big decisions for everyone else.

By definition, everyone is ignorant, some more than others.

That might be the case, but you'd think we'd notice at least one.

We have 2 gay guys where I work.

They never stop trying to add innuendo into conversations. It's really fucking annoying and childish. I get it, you're gay, and that's OKAY. I don't need a 15 minute reminder while you're giggling like a 14 year old at the word penis.

Well, that's just it: Unlike racial, ethnic, physical or gender differences, you wouldn't know what they were if they didn't remind you--and themselves, and each other--every 15 minutes.
And what would they be if you didn't know? Why, you might be uncaring enough to look at them and think they were...(shudder!)....N*RM*L!

(I'm sorry I had to use that terrible, scary N-word, but that's okay, I edited out so people wouldn't think I was repressive and hateful... )
