Regarding acceptance based on whether its a male or female couple...I think that most people who are against homosexuality in general find lesbian couples just as offensive as gay male couples, probably even more so in some cases.

I think the "acceptence" only comes when its two "hot babes" going it at and the horny males Salome mentioned feel safe in knowing they (the women) aren't really gay, they're just "experimenting"

Okay I've heard this in school and wanted to know if anyone had an article on it. But I heard something like it's not legal in the states to fire someone for being gay? Is this true? Whats going on?

I think you meant illegal, right? I read this last week, but haven't heard anything else about it. But I haven't watched much news in the past week or so, so I don't know how the story has developed.

The guys my boyfriend lives with are into "lesbians", but it's only b/c they're so dense that their dicks have them convinced those "hot babes" in their porno flicks really are lesbians. I doubt any of them have ever met a lesbian. They see these big boobed blonde chicks who are paid to hump each other and assume that since the porno is labelled "hott lesbian action", these sluts are real lesbians and then they assume all lesbians are hot. Guys

(PS. I'm not saying lesbians can't be hot, I think you get the picture)

I was reminded of something this morning as I was replying to another thread.

Lately I've been seeing this bumpersticker on cars recently where it reads: "MARRIAGE = GOD +" then it has a stick figure symbol of a man "+" then it has a stick figure of a woman "+" then it has a stick figure of a child.

I'm really tempted to go and scratch out the symbols and just write the word "love", but I've outgrown my vandalism days. Have you all seen these? It angers me, but then again so do most bumperstickers.


On another note I was speaking to a friend of mine this weekend who is gay and is a die hard Republican and I asked him about his views on this issue. I was a extremely shocked by his response, he was opposed to gay marriage based purely on an economic view. He believes gay marriage would prove to be bad for the economy. I almost spit out my beer I was in so much shock, but he's man that votes and thinks with his wallet. I told him that I thought the influx of elaborate receptions and designers tuxes alone would give a spike to the economy.

if alcohol was involved, and my dumber than dog shit friends, i think i'd revert to my vandalism days and attack a bumper sticker like that too. whenever i see this marriage is about the 2 people + god, it always makes me think of a menage a trois.

Don't forget about the child because we all know that every marriage should spawn an offspring.

this reminds me of a wedding i went to about 3 years ago. 2 friends of my husband got married very young. she was only i think 20 at the time, and they were both devout and from like minded families. their ceremony went for about an hour and the first thing the minister/priest/whatever he was said was we were there to watch them join in joly matrimony so they could do god's will and make babies. i was stunned, but he kept it up. for an hour. talking about them going forth and multiplying. i nudged my husband about halfway through and asked if he (priest type guy) was going to lock them in the ante room thing out the back to get the business started. it was beyond a joke really.

I should leave a note on that dimwit's car asking about my marriage, since I got married and still had no intention of ever having children.

I also know a lesbian couple with three kids.

I'm reminded of the importance of secular education, considering we have "adults" constructing arguments with gigantic holes in logic. What is even more sad, ultimately, is such logic holes are perpetuated by religions and politicians, who are, theoretically, supposed to be "smarter" than that.

Religion does nothing but perpetuate ignorance.

No. "Religion", as you call it, perpetuates a purpose for life and if man wants to stray from his nature than it's a "religious" authority's position to call them upon it.

I don't think gay marriage is right. Homosexuality is an aberration.

However, I do happen to agree with the thought that if Gay Marriage does not harm anyone (and it doesn't) then for harmony's sake let them carry it on.

It's like abortion, if you don't like it then don't get one.

Part of the problem is religious institutions keep pushing the idea that gay marriage is wrong and that indeed homosexuality is an aberration. Maybe I'm simplifying things too much, but what has this ideal got to do with love and forgiveness and acceptance and everything else which is suposed to be the basic foundations of all or most religions? Religion has the power to shape people's views like nothing else can. Gay marriage and homosexuality does nothing to those which it doesn't affect, yet the all powerful religions of the world are enforcing this unfounded belief that it does. By it's nature, it is perpetuating non acceptance and ignorance.

My minister wrote a letter to our congregation announcing that she was a lesbian on April 2. She is the best minister I have had in my life. I hope she is not sent away from us by the Church Council.
