Can anyone name one right that non-homosexuals have that homosexuals do not? (Hint, there is none, including marriage. Homosexuals have exactly the same marriage rights as non-homosexuals in that, in any jurisdiction, any adult person may marry any consenting adult of the opposite sex who is not already married.) So, when gays screech that they are being denied their rights, it is a deliberate distortion that is designed to gain sympathy (by making non-gays feel guilty) and to influence legislation using a false argument.

But would you want your daughter to marry one?

I didn't think so. It's baffling to me that you encourage a marriage like that of Rev. Ted Haggard, Gov. Jim McGreevey, Sen. Larry Craig, Congressman Eric Massa or actress Meredith Baxter-Burney. Ask any of their spouses or ex-spouses if you should be telling gays they can enter into a conventional marriage. They are the ones who deserve sympaty.

The institution is sacred because of is principles: changing those principles to something perverted will cause it to lose its sacredness.

David-If everyone were to marry everyone they were attracted to, no marriage would last a year.

Like the wives tail about hospital visitation.

Gay rights activists are demanding Tim Tebow back out of a speaking engagement at Liberty University just two weeks after pressuring the New York Jets quarterback to cancel a speaking engagement at the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Tebow is expected to speak this weekend at Wildfire – a men’s conference hosted by the conservative Christian university. His remarks will be closed to the general public.

The professional football player is well-known for sharing his faith in Christ – but in recent weeks he’s come under fire from the national media and gay rights activists for speaking in churches that follow...
