  • My thoughts: We should all kiss members of the same sex everywhere -especially near churches. Normalize it. End the discrimination. That's what it is. Discrimination. It's not tolerable. It's not right. It's not something worthy of respect. A man and woman wouldn't have this problem over a kiss. I can't believe people are calling gay activists intolerant for not tolerating the original intolerance. That's such bullshit.

  • Perhaps if people want to continue that which is not socially acceptable; they need to STOP making others have to accept it.
    Kissing on church property?
    You are right older...homosexuals have sooooooo many people standing behind their perverted ways.
    NOT and NEVER will be accepted no matter how many states say it is o.k..
    How rude they were for doing what they know is an abomination on a church property.
    What they got is what they deserved.
    Not everyone wants their behavior openly shown.
    WE ARE he majority and still call it what it is. PERVERSION!!

  • Protesters Kiss Near Mormon TempleGay Couple Arrested for Kiss on Cheek Days Before
    (July 13) -- Protesters engaged in very public displays of affection in front of the Mormon church headquarters in Salt Lake City after two men were detained for sharing a kiss on the cheek in a plaza owned by the church.
    Matt Aune said he and his partner, Derek Jones, were walking home from a concert on the night of July 9 when they cut through the Main Street Plaza near the Salt Lake City Mormon temple.

  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said that the men became argumentative and refused to leave after being asked to stop their "inappropriate behavior." The men say they were targeted because they are gay.

    INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR and so was their refusal to leave a private property.

  • This SO incredibly SELFISH of these people. Do they not get the irony of this BS!! They want EVERYONE to accept them and THIER life choices but THEY don't accept OTHERS! Who here is the intolerant one?? This is private property and dammit, if what these extremists have to say is all well and good and free speech then what right do THEY have to expect people from the other end of the spectrum to shut up and change their beliefs!?
