Why can’t you separate “gun control” from “disarming”. There is a huge gap there. Like it or not we already have gun control. You can’t buy a full auto M16. You can’t own and RPG or rocket launcher, these are technically arms aren’t they? So why is it that the laws we have now are the perfect ones and we can’t change them.
The previous assault weapons ban was a joke and everyone knew it. Way too many loopholes to be effective. You don’t need an AR-15 outside of combat. I know many of you think that is coming with the Government but that is not really realistic. We had a hard enough time controlling Iraq and Afghanistan with our current Military, how could it take over every US city?
And I know the statistics that only a small number of people are actually killed with the assault rifles, the problem is every nut job who wants to become famous uses one because they are the most effective killing machines available. Australia did it in 96 and hasn’t had a mass shooting since.

Romney was the worst candidate since Nixon and you know it. He would come out in favor of whatever would get him elected because he somehow thought it was his birthright. People saw right through him and that is why he lost. His ideas on the economy were to go back to what almost caused the second great depression which we are still digging out of. I’m not saying that this was all Bushes fault for the crash nor is it all Obamas credit for the recovery. The crash was because everyone looked the other way while every financial institution was lining their pockets with unstable practices. This is why we need regulation.

Hey George Jettson, Why would I be going to hell? I’m not gay. I just happen to think that gay people should have every right to be happy and equal as I do. Do you really think there is a god that would send me to hell for believing in equality?

Hey John, i have gay family and friends in Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, is god going to smite them? Or does Jesus love them like he says. Oh that’s right, Jesus didn’t hang out with the sinners of his time, only the must judgmental bigots found his company.
February 28, 2013 at 11:33pm
Wow, you knew two gay guys 20 years ago? Well we found our expert. Do you think maybe his family was screwed up because he was a gay man trying to live a lie and it caught up to him or was he just brought to the dark side by those seductive gays? I’m fairly positive no gay man can tempt me from my wife, no matter how sexy he may be. By the way what happened to the other one?
February 28, 2013 at 11:26pm
Am123. I did answer it you mouth breather. It doesn’t matter if your burn a pedophile because your actions hurt other people. What does a gay marriage hurt anyone? That’s like saying oh this serial killer was born schizophrenic so we can’t put him in jail. Its not a valid comparison. By the way i know you wasn’t to think your god condemns gays but go back and read the chapter you’re referencing and then get rid of all your bacon, polyester, and shrimp, cause you will be in hell right along with the ******.
February 28, 2013 at 9:13pm
AM123, the answer is simple, It doesn’t matter. Pedophiles are imposing themselves on other people and hurting them. Gay people enter into a relationship willingly, no one is involved whom doesn’t want to be. Telling a gay person to just be straight is as easy as telling you to just be gay. Comparing the 2 is insulting and shows your ignorance. Didn’t Jesus say judge not lest ye be judged?

I don’t think that number is right. We don’t have 1 billion people in the US of A

Being gay is not a mental illness. You’re born gay. There are gay animals in the wild. I have gay friends that I knew were gay before they did. No one tries to be gay and you can’t fix it. It would be as easy for a gay man to find a woman attractive as it would for me to find a man attractive.
Good point! 1,500 different species have been observed practicing homosexuality!
trot out yer Queergene, Jellie.
And are you gonna argue the SAME about BIs?
Being born horney is not a mental illness either, so why not allow more than one wife or husband to satisfy those natrual needs and reap the benifits (tax, medical, beneficiary). I don't see the issue with allowing more than one spouse,
People are not born gay. Identical twins where one is gay and the other is not proves that. Also, the fact that there is no gay gene proves it.
Being gay is a choice. But being straight is not a choice. People are born straight, as that is the normal, default condition. So for straights, that is just the way they are, there isn't a choice that comes into play. For gays however, at some point in their lives, due to external things, they are enticed by spirits of perversion and they choose to engage in things that ought not to be done, unnatural things. But the Good News is they can be set free from these spirits of perversion by inviting Jesus into their hearts. Then the grace of Jesus will change them from the inside out—spirit, soul, and body. So they can pray the gay away, for it is a spiritual problem that must be dealt with spiritually.
Am123... being gay is a choice.. but being straight is not a choice? really? you see why that is a completely unsound argument right? and secondly Being gay has been proven not to be a choice.. as it has been observed many times in the wild.. from Dogs to Rats to Monkeys to dolphins to bugs.. many of these animals do not even have brains complexed enough to make decisions yet they still show homosexual tendencies... strange how that works huh? And secondly.. if it is a choice, which it is NOT, where you you get off saying its wrong and that they should be condemned in this free country?

Because it is immoral. And it was considered immoral in the founding of this free country.
Now here's a question for you: If it not a choice, which it IS, then what about pedophiles? Are they born that way? If you think they are, should we allow them to adopt and molest children since they are born that way?
Regarding the animal stuff, you really do need to watch Animal Planet or Nat Geo more. The males of the species don't make love to the other males, they fight the other males in order to mate with the females.
your pedophile argument is awful... a gay marriage doesn't hurt anyone, both people give consent and are of age.. I mean dude .. come on. and as for the animal stuff.. yes i love nat geo! that and the majority of animals are straight... that being said not all are. some 1,500 species have shown homosexual tendencies.. that is a fact
The pedophile thing wasn’t an argument, it was a question that exposes your hypocrisy, which is why you didn’t answer it. But I don’t blame you.
Let me lay it out for you. If you are of the mindset that gays are born that way and so should be allowed to marry since that is “normal” for them, then if you were not being a hypocrite, it would follow that you would be for pedophiles being allowed to adopt and molest children since that is “normal” for them.
Here's a quick yes or no question for you: Do you believe pedophiles are born that way, yes or no?
If your answer is yes, then do you believe they should be allowed to adopt and molest children since they are born that way?
If your answer is no, they are not born that way, they became that way, then cannot the same be said of gays?
If your answer is "I don't know", then how do you know gays are born that way but don’t know about pedophiles, what’s the difference?
AM123, the answer is simple, It doesn't matter. Pedophiles are imposing themselves on other people and hurting them. Gay people enter into a relationship willingly, no one is involved whom doesn't want to be. Telling a gay person to just be straight is as easy as telling you to just be gay. Comparing the 2 is insulting and shows your ignorance. Didn't Jesus say judge not lest ye be judged?
If the answer is simple, then why not answer it—are pedophiles born that way, yes or no?
Regarding judging, I did not make the judgment that homosexuality is an abomination, God did. He said it, ‘nuff said.
Of course it's a choice. I've known of two different men who cheated on their wives w/ men. One died of AIDS 20 years ago. It ruined his family and turned his son into a preacher. Gee, I wonder why? As far as animals practicing it, who cares? They're not asking pro-creationist families to subsidize their antics w/ tax dollars!

As a gay man, I can assure everyone here that my sexuality was not a choice, just as yours was not a choice. However, to try and relate sexuality to a specific gene is to fail to understand biology and genetics. Besides, can you tell me what gene makes you get freckles? No? Then I say having freckles is a choice and an abomination!
And for the record, no I don't care if 3 people all want to marry, but the laws governing the added issues would need to be tidied up first. And I cannot believe that pedophiles had a choice in their attraction to children, but they cannot be allowed to molest children because that is harming another person. If you cannot recognize that distinction, I cannot help you.
You people are effing stupid. There are no gay animals although some males hump others males to demostrate superiority. If you place those animals ina room with female of their species in heat ...
Your gay theory is gone in seconds.
Dogs will hump anything no matter the species even inanimate objects. So are some animals born the have sex out side of their species. Are some dogs born couchasexual because my dog loves the loveseat(appropriately named) in my den.
Fact is if youre reaching for animal behavior to justify yours animals do things that we find criminals,they assault other animals for food,kill other animals for food,shelter,to breed,and for territory. They abadom their elderly when they become weak to die alone. The piss to mark thier territory,they shit,piss and phuck outside anywheres any time. THEY EAT THEIR YOUNG! I guess if animals do those things then we should accept,tolerate and embrace people who do all those as well. Right
Keatonc333 You are so full of s h i t What a jerk every thing you say is BS. You have NO facts. You stick up for this disgusting act. I don't care what you think gay marriage is wrong.
"… that being said not all are. some 1,500 species have shown homosexual tendencies.. that is a fact"
What tendencies have you shown?
February 28, 2013 at 6:46pm
It passed in 3 out of four states that it was up in. Coming to your state soon weather you like it or not. You are on the wrong side of history my friend, Your grandchildren will be embarrassed by your bigotry.
February 28, 2013 at 6:38pm
Why would you prance or dance or sing in the rain on a cold day in hell? Doesn’t make sense.
February 28, 2013 at 6:36pm
Like DJ Kool?
Now if y’all wanna party like we do
If y’all wanna party like us, lemme hear ya say
Ah ah ah ah ah, if y’all wanna party like we do
If y’all wanna party like us lemme hear ya say
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah!

Check the last election. People are voting for gay marriage, not just civil unions.
February 28, 2013 at 6:23pm
That isn’t english. No one knows what your talking about
February 28, 2013 at 6:18pm
Why the hell was my post just edited when I was giving a direct quote of someone else who wasn’t?
February 28, 2013 at 6:17pm
No one uses video tape anymore. Its all digital. But yeah god didn’t do that.
February 28, 2013 at 6:15pm
Wouldn’t that mean that he just beat the gay guys each half to death since there was two of them? Also why do you rednecks insist on capitalizing every other word?
February 28, 2013 at 6:11pm
In what chapter does god say “**** SEX BE PERV”? illiterate.
February 28, 2013 at 6:05pm
Yup, all that gay sex is going to shift tectonic plates.
