    Oh how I wish I was kidding

    Oh this is the kicker - The pair said the tea party is welcoming to their minority group, too. "The Tea Party is accepting of everybody," said Hissey, adding that "Skin color diversity -- that's not real diversity. Everyone here has a different life experience." Hissey recognized that the tea party "might be against gay marriage," but that's ok, he said, because he is too. -

    I'm against govt control of marriage.
    But I also believe if they're going to control it, they need to let everyone do it who wants to, regardless of sexual orientation.

    It is my opinion that the Teabaggers are Fascist.

    To me, it seems inconsistent that somebody can be gay and a Teabagger.

    So, is this the image of the new, Neo-Conservative gay Teabagger?

    They are verging on being (human) race traitors. And I don't even care about gay marriage.

    Found some video of the event, here is the quote from the video poster "This heavily-promoted event, organized by Jerry Weingarten, didn't turn out much of a minority presence. I counted six black people (a few of them wearing press passes) and talked to two gay conservatives. About 200 people attended.".




    This rings true as I have been to 3 tea party events since I've moved to Philly (I was brushing up on my photojournalism skills) shots of the events can be seen here http://www.flickr.com/photos/doomsdaypanda/sets/72157616823774266/


    Philadelphia is about 47% white and 44% black...

    Not all people let their sexuality define them as a whole! There are people straight and gay who see more important issues than marriage equality. I myself don't think marriage and gay go together, as it's a heterosexual institution; albeit one bisexuals have access to. I like the sound of civil unions, for gays and lesbian, and will support that.

    But in America where religion is thieving, and growing, and religion from America is now invading the rest of the world, like supper churches, from Willow Creek. Unlike Europe where it's now nothing but a margin of peoples lives, unlike America. So while gay activist fight for gay marriage equality, they are going to have an uphill fight in America and hold others back. But if they compromised, and moved to a term like "Civil Unions", they may well see advancement and less resistance. You can't blame teabaggers for the actions and failures of gay activists. They to have a right to have political freedom of choice.

    Funny it was gay liberals, wanting advancement who helped put Hitler in power with the promise of equality, then the Night of the Long Knives put an end to all of that. Hitler was in power and reneged on his promise.

    Well, government in control of marriage is a good thing, because it keeps marriage legalities a secular thing. Atheists that marry no doubt appreciate this.

    Marriage is a heterosexual thing is blah blah blah, so were 501 jeans n cars n stuff, not to mention raising kids.

    Civil unions are a no go from what we can see as the rights of civil unions are a mess down there depending on what state you live in, and some don't even allow civil unions among straight people. Marriage, however, has the same rights legally right across the US, from what we've been able to find out...

    Just more proof that the Teabaggers are the rebranded extreme right-wing of the Republican party.

    You know statistically speaking that makes sense. Most people stay in physically and emotionally abusive relationships.

    sxydrkhair saidMarriage is all about making family. Why need to get marry without having kids or adopt kids?



    sxydrkhair, you wouldn't say that if you thought about all the STRAIGHT married couples that don't have kids and don't intend to.

    In fact, the number of UNmarried people having kids is increasing.

    Your inability to think outside of your little world has become increasingly obvious over the past few months. What's wrong with you?

    It isn't about marriage, and it isn't about you. It's okay if you want to hide away in a dark corner and perform some twisted form of self-flagellation. That's your call, but you should at least understand the issue before you let your fingers type such ridiculous statements.

    Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle vetoed Hawaii's civil unions bill. Why? She believes the benefits that the bill bestowed upon gay couples "sounded too much like marriage."

    In other words, even if we push for civil unions and vacate any reference to marriage, we'll still be in for a fight.

    This isn't about marriage. Neither you nor Pattison seem to understand this concept, and while Pattison's opinions matter little in any thread related to U.S. law, yours do.

    This is about the advancement of a very large group of the voting population. Are we not paying the same amount in taxes (relative to our salaries, of course)? Are we not all expected to follow the law of the land? So, tell me why we should not be afforded the same rights as straight couples?

    I don't think family is only defined by offspring.

    Gay and Lesbians should have the option to get married just like straight couples. I myself am a non believer so I dont care that much about marriage, but will always be in support of gays and lesbians having the right to marry and enjoy the same benefits as other hard working Americans.

    Rick using the term "teabaggers" is disgusting and gross and just shows how narrow minded you are. I am a proud tea party member and attend monthly meetings. We hold peaceful rallies in support of hard working Americans wanting lower taxes and limited government. Using that term is an insult and just shows how childish you are.

    Yet the people you support are for higher taxes and more government.

    Unmarried people have kids was irresponsible. For example a teenage girl got pregnant by a stranger. Or a drunk teenage boy slept with a girl and got her pregnant. That happen a lot in our American culture.

    Gay couples can't make babies because they are infertile and most likely in our American culture and some laws gay couples can't adopt kids. We still have this "the ban gay adoption" movements. Some gay couples have children because both partners were earlier involved in a heterosexual relationship.

    Why marriage is so important to heterosexual people? It is about FAMILY and FAMILY TREE. Two married men without kids is not a faithful family. That is why so many heterosexuals are against "Gay marriage." Jesus used the image of marriage and the family to teach the basics about the kingdom of God.

    Gay couples can call it whatever they want, but "Marriage" is the heterosexual term.



    I am so sick of hearing about the "family". Let the churchs make the decisions regarding gay marriage, keep it in the PRIVATE SECTOR, the government should not be involved. WHO IS THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL PEOPLE WHO THEY CAN AND CANNOT MARRY? The christian right needs to stop pushing their agenda through the federal government. THE LESS GOVERNMENT WE HAVE THE BETTER THINGS WILL BE.

    How do you come to that conclusion?
