  •  The most disgusting - and telling - thing (10+ / 0-)

    about these lying bigots (such as Warren, Robertson, and the rest of the whole fetid pile of wretchedness) is their frequent passive-aggressive (and false) claim that "we" are trying to force "our" "lifestyle" on them.

    Ummmmmm...NO.

    I have known a lot of gay people - men, women, young, old...and never, and I mean NEVER have I ever heard one of them say that "heterosexual people shouldn't be allowed to marry each other". Or "heterosexual people are trying to recruit gay children and convert them to the heterosexual lifestyle". Or "employers should be free to fire heterosexual people without cause".

    But the Warrens of the world feel perfectly free to promote laws, policies, and doctrines that do prohibit homosexual people from marrying each other, or that do allow employers to fire homosexual workers at will, or that do spew that homosexual people should be kept away from children lest they "recruit" them.

    So who, exactly, is trying to force a lifestyle on somebody else? I'd say it's Warren and filth like him that are doing the forcing. No gay person ever told Warren he shouldn't be allowed marry the woman of his choice.

      I will buy the "lifestyle" BS when an LGBTQ person sits me down to tell me how I really need to be gay.  So far it hasn't happened yet, not even once.

      •  I'm still waiting for the LGBTQ community (3+ / 0-)

        to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to get laws and constitutional amendments passed to deny heterosexual people the right to marry the opposite-sex partner of their choice.

        So far I haven't seen one single LGBTQ person do that, but there's still time, I guess.
