Why is it that homosexuality scares so many republicans? You profess to be for states rights and individual liberty, but the first thing you want to do is get into everyones bedroom and find out who they are having sex with, and if it doesnt fit with what you want, or how you think things should be, you whine and complain. As a republican that is 100% behind states rights and individual liberty, the rest of you idiots need to figure out priorites.,

JoJo, you seem to think Republicans bustle into people's bedrooms and "find out who they are having sex with," but we don't care. It's the gays who are out, loud and proud and in-your-face with their sex life who have brought it to public attention.

We aren't ready to re-purpose marriage. In our view it's a contract that includes God or, if you like, in this case Mother Nature, and it has served to reproduce society for thousands of years. We have ourselves diluted marriage by living-together outside of marriage, but we are not ready to jettison the contract.

You do realize of course that if homos weren't running around telling everyone who they were having sex with and kept their freakin' pieholes closed no one would be saying anything, don't you? It is their need to be accepted and force the rest of us to say they're normal that creates the problem. If they didn't flaunt it and have it in everyone's face 24/7/365 there would be little to no discussion.

homosexuality is an unhealthy,destructive behavior,resulting from mental illness.
it should not be accommodated,enabled,or encouraged.

This is all about the REDEFINITION of "marriage" to be something it's never been,and thus FORCING other states to recognize the abomination via Article IV,sec 1.

Of course,some people IGNORE the second part of Article IV,sec 1;
"and the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts,Records,and Proceedings shall be proved,and the Effect thereof."
Congress "prescribed the manner" by enacting DOMA.
THAT alone allows DOMA to be Constitutional.

Congress is SPECIFICALLY given the power to decide,and they did.

JoJo: homosexuals are bringing their bedroon into inappropriate places.

Brain washed idiots like you can not figure that out?

JoJo, I am a Republican too, "100% behind states' rights and individual liberty." What's more, I'm not scared by homosexuality, nor do I want to ". . . get into everyone's bedroom to find out who they are having sex with." I do object to the bully-boy tactics of the homosexualists, who are determined to shut up (or else!) anyone who raises religious or prudential objections to homosexual marriage As a matter of individual liberty, being able to speak one's mind and defend one's religious beliefs publicly--the actual theme of Michelle's column--sure seems to come under that category. As a matter of states' rights, you might remember that the people of California twice voted for keeping marriage between one man and one woman.

There are degrees of "bullying," and nothing I have seen from the gay community comes close to the bullying gays receive in school, in church and even in their own homes.

This whole episode seems more like a free-speech issue than a "bullyiing" issue. Both sides had their say, the journalist had to admit that Pacquiao didn't really quote the Bible, there were apologies all around, and the columinsts like Malkin have fired back. Case closed.

People who exercise their right of free speech, however, should also understand that it's not protected from criticism.

Of course, David, it is understood that criticism is allowed. Hence the existence of forums like this.

But I don't see that there were apologies all around on this issue; certainly none from the homosexuals.

JoJo, you are a riot! You accuse Republicans of wanting to get into everyone's bedroom to find out who they are having sex with. Even if that accusation were true, there is no reason Repubs need to get into homosexuals' bedrooms to find out who they are having sex with. The homosexuals insist on broadcasting to the entire world whom they are having sex with.

If it is a states rights issue (and I agree that it is) then why did the pro-gay marriage activists take the issue to federal courts? The Homosexuality does not scare Republicans, we just don't want the redefinition of marriage shoved down our throats by mean narcissistic gay activists.
David3036 Wrote: May 18, 2012 5:25 AM
Blind Avocado, they took the case to the federal courts because most of the laws that benefit married couples are FEDERAL laws. Because of DOMA, they exclude gay couples even in gay-marriage states.

Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is guilty -- of being true to his Catholic faith. The gay-marriage mob is guilty -- of the very ugly bigotry it claims to abhor. And left-wing media outlets are guilty -- of stoking false narratives that shamelessly demonize religion in the name of compassion.

The attempted crucifixion of Pacquiao this week was fueled by an online army of cultural shakedown artists, generously funded by billionaire George Soros and other so-called progressive philanthropists.

On Tuesday, a freelance writer for the Examiner.com published an interview with Pacquiao conducted at his Los Angeles residence. Journalist Granville...
