Is it equal to racism? Not even close. Comparable? You're goddamn right it is. Insults, ridicule, beatings, killings, suicides... stop acting like it's not a big deal. It's no where close to what black Americans went through, but it's a helluva lot more awful than what you or I went through.
I'm good with that. Actually, I've tried...repeatedly. Government and religion don't mix.
You lost me at "3 months old" then regained my attention at "boobs are awesome". I'm not really sure if you made a point or not.
If you choose to not work and leach off the government? No. If you are a hardworking American that is the product of a sh!tty economy and is doing everything possible but it's still not enough? Yeah.
I'm pretty sure you took my comments in the ACLU thread to mean I fit the FoxNews/CNN definition of a conservative. I'm not. I just want everyone to leave everyone alone and stop trying to control them in any way or for any reason no matter how well they've justified it in their own minds.
My personal favorite republican jesus.
The liberal back then is the opposite of today lol. Specifically in what he deems is morally and ethically right.
Edit: At least on some cases(Very important ones) he differs from the modern liberal.

And they deserve just as much if not more support than homosexuals but that's not what this thread about.
But, what does, "They have no choice," have to do with anything?
Or, you know, you could help gays and the poor at the same time...
So when he stopped people from stoning the adultress to death which was God's teaching, was he not going against the opposite of what was morally right at the time?
Did he not teach us to treat others the way you wanted to be treated and to turn your cheek and not judge others? Did he not say that how you treat the least of us is how you treat God (when he referred to the Gentile who was basically looked down upon closely to how homosexuals are now)?
It came off as implying the poor had no choice buy gays did.
Either way, rams is right: It's possible to support both the poor AND the homosexual community.
Libertarian. Anarchy has no way of protecting personal property rights, which is the fundamental right of freedom. Google John Locke for more info.
That i will agree with. He is absolutely not a staunch supporter of either side.
The average income for gay couples is most certainly higher, that was never debated. But to only focus on gay couples, or adult homosexuals, and ignore the sh!t show that is their adolescence is demeaning. Poor people need our help. So do homosexuals. And quite frankly, I'll keep giving a rat's ass as long as people feel the need to hate on other people for God knows what reason. I don't see what makes people so hateful.
How is it not equal to racism?
You don't see racists spewing about black people getting married, being able to adopt children, or other rights married people take for granted.
Most Americans are against freedom though. Most want people to be able to only do things that they deem normal or moral. The religious conservative movement is borderline social Communism.
Just because we tell someone that we believe something is wrong, doesn't mean we are judging them. AS a matter of fact if we did not inform them then we would not really be fulfilling our duty as Christians.
Now I am absolutely not trying to say he was a super republican by any means. As BamaLives said, he would not like things about both parties.
There weren't over a hundred years of slavery of homosexuals. There was the mass genocide of gays, but that was Hitler, not America. That's my reasoning for why it's not quite on the same level.
People are blinded by hate and ignorance. The close-minded are afraid of what they don't understand.
It's really sad and unfortunate.
What I am getting at is that Jesus never. ever condemned homosexuals.
Christians should follow Jesus's lead.
The only time in the Bible where it states that is bad is in the OT and when Paul wrote about it in the New Testament.
Jesus himself never said it was bad.
He said many other things that contradicted the OT and told people to love their neighbors like themselves.
I think it has become worse presently. I'm not relating it to where racism was and to slavery, but presently it is worse, IMO.
That he did. I don't hate them though, but just because i don't hate them doesn't mean i would want something to be passed to further what I thought was a bad thing.
And to Christians Jesus is God, and God said it was an abomination so we know how he feels about it. He still loves them though.
But we've already discussed how polygamy was an obvious insurance/tax advantage with the multiple wives. However, how many gay people have gotten married (a gay man and a lesbian) just for those benefits but still been, obviously, gay? It happens, it's not a secret. Why not stop lying to ourselves?
Did you realize by denying them to get married, their gay partner has no say on what procedures can be done if they are in the hospital. Only a family member or significant other (married partner) has that right. Do you not think that having that privaledge is not important and is not denying a loved one of having a VERY important right?
