    I'm curious.

    You're in Canada. Why do you ask? We have about a half-dozen US Republican/right-wing fanatics here who try to disrupt this site. They're always starting fires we have to put out, just to prevent their propaganda from going unanswered, not to try to convince them personally, which we know is impossible, but to answer their lies.

    There have been some claims that the US Right has sent these guys to disrupt and undermine gay sites, along with other sites they consider liberal. A hard thing to prove, and I haven't seen any definitive evidence of it. But I do note that we have some guys here who are unremittingly anti-gay and gay hostile. Who contribute little to a gay health & fitness site except for anti-gay political posts.

    It does make you wonder... icon_confused.gif

    The are many who are fiscally conservative and often support US Republicans. Several post, but many do not because they are put off by some of the garbage written by several who support big governments, entitlements, etc. Most are in the US but there is also Canadian participation.

    Who's going to volunteer to step up and put up with the verbal abuse in a predominately left-wing forum?

    I don't see that as a trade-off in any way. Much discussion about this in other threads.

    I have a gay republican "friend" on Facebook. I actually had a crush on him until I realized all of his values and everything were way the fuck off centered.

    I am a gay republican and uber christian. It makes sense to be a republican if you're gay. The Democrats mainly use the gay rights issue for political points.

    Here is the reason why it makes sense to be Republican when you're gay. Republican ideology rests on the notion of small government--get the government out of peoples' business and let them live their lives. The current republicans who are not pro-gay are misguided by religious ideology. They adopt core democratic ideals (increase the scope of federal government by banning same-sex marriage) and completely abandom idelogical norms over religious values. They are not "true" Republicans.

    As a gay republican, I am okay with the federal government not recognizing gay marriage as long as it does not tell individual states what to do. Individual states should make a determination on marriage like they have always done in the past.

    I believe we all have the right to bear arms and I hold that right dearly. If Democrats try to increase the scope of government and make a police state, it is the only right that will protect me as a private citizen.

    I believe that life is created at fertilization. So abortion is a method of murder that should be outlawed. Once an embryo is formed from fertilization, IT IS NOT THE WOMAN'S BODY ANYMORE, it is another human being's body, and the woman does not have a right to destroy it without the consent of the father, who mind you donated half the genes of that embryo in its creation.

    I believe in the free markets.

    REDUCE REDUCE REDUCE the scope of government as much as possible.

    So this means the minority has no right to a voice or representation. But not without fear of safety

    It certainly makes one wonder how members of the left here have the ability to over look their own transgression, and all the many years they may of spent in hiding, promoting there is something wrong with homosexuality. Yet will not show a fellow republican the same grace, they bestowed upon themselves. How is their hate and damage any better?

    Indeed it does.

    Sarcasm doesn't go over well in written format -- that's what I originally intended. I tend to be economically conservative, socially libertarian. I've found that I limit my participation on a lot of issues here because of the negative reaction to conservative ideas.

    The forums offer a lot of value on coming out and relationships, but some of the guys who are so insightful and spot-on in those areas totally lose it when they're challenged with a conservative political idea.

    I heard they were all hanging out around Dupont Circle? I dunno.

    I've often wondered about an older variety of sweet cherry, now seldom grown, called "Black Republicans." Is it supposed to imply rarity? Or some other quality? (I'm sure it's something much more mundane, such as a darker version of an even older variety that was just called "Republicans.") I still have about 50 trees. They're good pollinators, though there isn't much market for them. They're very sweet but they bruise easily. Maybe I could re-name them "Gay Republicans" and triple the price...

    Here is the reason why it makes sense to be Republican when you're gay. Republican ideology rests on the notion of small government--get the government out of peoples' business and let them live their lives.Really? Have you seen the new slew of intrusions of corporate greed mandated in the last two months here in FL by a republican dominated government? Are you aware of how HUGE the government grew in the last two months here? Oopsie! The current republicans who are not pro-gay are misguided by religious ideology.81 percent of em? LMAO! They adopt core democratic ideals (increase the scope of federal government by banning same-sex marriage) and completely abandom idelogical norms over religious values. They are not "true" Republicans.

    As a gay republican, I am okay with the federal government not recognizing gay marriage as long as it does not tell individual states what to do. Really? According to the Pew Research Center, 81 percent of Republicans oppose same-sex marriage.What happened to 'government OUT of my fucking life? oopsie.. What about those 1300+ bennies bestowed on a 'certain' part of the constituency? Hmmmm??? Individual states should make a determination on marriage like they have always done in the past.

    I believe we all have the right to bear arms and I hold that right dearly. If Democrats try to increase the scope of government and make a police state, it is the only right that will protect me as a private citizen.

    I believe that life is created at fertilization. So abortion is a method of murder that should be outlawed. Talk about religious ideology and ENFORCING YOUR BS beliefs on others? I thought you said "get the government out of peoples' business and let them live their lives" -- thats YOUR QUOTE from above! hypocrite! Once an embryo is formed from fertilization, IT IS NOT THE WOMAN'S BODY ANYMORE Really? whos is it? yours? are you the "police state"?, it is another human being's body, and the woman does not have a right to destroy it without the consent of the father, who mind you donated half the genes of that embryo in its creation.

    I believe in the free markets.

    REDUCE REDUCE REDUCE the scope of government as much as possible.
    I couldnt help but RIP the shit out of this idiot hypocrite.. Sorry guys.. its the utter stupidity of the diarrhea coming out of the 'uber right/uber christians' mouths that is totally beyond logic!
