  • LOL!! You are laughable.


    Better that than pathetic. That you deny the torture and murder of real people like Matthew Shepard 


    Do you raise your kids to be as hateful as you are, or is there hope they will escape someday?

  • I am old enough to remember the outrage felt by the white supremists of the South when black Americans were given legal rights by the federal government. It meant that these pseudo-Nazis could not longer threaten or murder black people without legal action being taken. But it never impacted their actual lives in any other way. Like today's homophobe, they also swore that they would never give up the fight to return negroes to their "rightful" place in god's plan. Homophobic "Christians" are just the newest version of the supremist groups. They don't hang black people from trees, but they DO tie homosexual teenagers to fences and beat them to death. I think this is the same level of Christian love that was shown by the KKK back in the old days.

  • lol~love it.

    I think people get their panties in a wad, because when they do express their 'disgust" there are many more people standing up and saying "why? Whats wrong with gay people or gay marriage?" and more people are fighting against them to get it legal. And they don't like it.
    They like being able to express themselves and have the majority nod in approval. That no longer happens. boohoo.

  • First, I find it very interesting how you start your sentence off by using lower case b for blacks and capital A for americans



    if you had read properly, you'd see she wrote "black Americans" she was merely specifying that she was referring to the population of Americans that are black. second, nobody cares if it was capitalized or not. you are being an ass, as usual.


    (negro)



    again, she was referring to the way white supremists referred to black people (African Americans included) in that time. she wasn't calling anyone a negro. perhaps you need a lesson in reading comprehension.

  • You cannot compare homosexuals with African Americans


    she was drawing a comparison to today's zealot Christians and zealot Christians in the 60's and how both used their bible to justify why neither blacks nor homosexuals deserve rights.

  • its funny how today's zealot Christians agree that yesterday's zealot Christians were wrong when they persecuted blacks, but turn a blind eye to the persecution of homosexuals. even go as far to pretend that bullying and murder doesn't exist when it comes to gays. i wonder if future zealot Christians will find today's zealot Christians repugnant, too.

  • I did read it properly.- as evidenced by your ignorant response, right?


    Applauds to you for trying sooo hard to pick it apart- zero effort involved actually


    I think you need lessons in comprehension and syntax- these are things taught after third grade- which i did manage to pass.

  • you give nothing but internet cites and NEVER SCHOLARLY sources

    Internet addresses are sites, not cites. Citations are found in scholarly sources, millions of which are available on several internet sites. The entire contents of every major university library is available online. That is why the world wide web (ARPANET) was created in the first place. It was a private network allowing universities and government researchers to exchange information. You'll find plenty of SCHOLARLY source regarding homosexuality not being a choice on such sites as the New England Journal of Medicine and American Journal of Psychology.

    I know I personally have linked it for you in the past, but it's obvious the long words are too much for you, so why continue to bother giving you information you clearly don't understand?

  • its funny how today's zealot Christians agree that yesterday's zealot Christians were wrong when they persecuted blacks

    It would be funny, except when you consider in this case it's a black woman who would have been directly impacted by those laws and rules, but sees absolutely NO problem with insisting other human beings be subjected to the same abuses her grandmothers were required to endure without complaint. That's sadistic.

  • "I just want to clarify because there seems to be a lot of Christian bashing going on"

    i just want to clarify that no there isnt...theres a lot of Christian BIGOT bashing going on. you and a few others have stated your belief that homosexuality is a sin, and thats fine. my parents think the same and i love them and respect their Christian beliefs. its the ppl like pto(and there are a lot of them) that claim its a sin AND that gays should be, at best ostracized, at worst killed, AND that everyone must abide by the laws of their religion or else God will smite us. that is what is being bashed here.

    well that and pto's hypocrisy, ignorance, stupidity, and hatefullness.
