    I hear that cake had been flown in especially for their occasion. They had it baked in the ovens of Auschwitz.

    Republicans celebrate another decade of hateful discrimination against gay Americans.
    What a wonderful party -- they should be so proud of themselves! icon_rolleyes.gif

    What's really disappointing about this is that they don't even care if the men and women who marry believe in God. They don't bake and cut cakes to celebrate rapists being locked up or thieves being caught nor "celebrate" murders getting convicted. But they pat themselves on the back and smile about keeping us from getting benefits of marriage. Assholes.

    Be interesting to know how many of those righteous, god-fearing folks in the picture have divorced and re-married or committed adultery... Of course, that's okay, because it's "normal." Or something.

    You'll pardon me for only seeing this posted now,* but not, I'm sure, for crowing loudly against it. It's the sort of gratuitous Schadenfreud that only succeeds in making those who contrived it look ridiculous.

    Of course you have lives. I was making a dry observation because this is not unusual at all. (and referring to our long-time topic patrollers, who know who they are)

    So then, your opinion on the cake-cutting, if you would.

    Horse face Hilary Clinton daughters is so happy living her life as a very rich society lady in Manhattan with her wealthy parents buying expensive gits to their granddaughter.

    You think they can save gay rights?. I dont think so




    I don't understand. Someone is speaking out FOR our rights on a world stage and you attack her looks? Then you mock her efforts in using her influence to try to help us gain acceptance?

    I personally don't think someone needs to be pretty to fight for us. And if they use their family's wealth, republican or democrat, as a platform to speak out for our rights, I'm inclined to thank them for using their time for our cause.

    What is troubling is that there are some gay men and women who voted for those lawmakers, and would still likely vote for them again in the next elections.

    not all republicans are like these narrow minded bible thumping screwballs from Texas. Stop stereotyping all republicans as racist, homophobic, and xenophobic. Furthermore, this is the Texas GOP so what do you expect from the state party that is the hub of hatred and hubris just like the giant tea party state of Texas .

    There are political issues other - and more important - than gay issues; which doubtless "informs" these gay GOPers' votes just as they do mine. We are a rainbow, remember? This is just another part of that "wonderful diversity" the gay left is always crowing about.

    I understand that there are other political issues, issues where a Republican candidate is more closely aligned to you than a Democratic one. I fully support you being a Republican, if you are one.

    However, I wonder if all gay GOPers feel that there is a line that would be unacceptable to cross. I mean, I know they are out there. There are some who have switched to independent because of the bad name social conservatives are giving to the Republican brand.

    Marriage equality is not just a gay issue. In a broader sense, it is a civil rights issue.

    For the lawmakers that the article is referring to, they do not simply oppose marriage equality. They are actually celebrating their discriminatory law. I would think that celebrating discrimination would be reprehensible and would cross that line.

    Apparently not, for some.

    Interesting that you find cutting a cake to celebrate persecuting gays and discriminating against gay civil rights to be an acceptable example of "diversity".

    I think we can now tell without question who and what you are quite clearly.

    How do you feel about dancing on graves or picketing LGBT funerals and other tasteful ways of celebrating intolerance?

    im actually much more interested in how the "small government" and "low spending" party, can justify using tax payer money (donations being tax deductable) to buy not one, but at least TWO cakes, and a knife, to celebrate something like this at tax payer expense. Im guessing that is at least 50$ that could have been sent back as tax cuts to the wealthy, and a totally unnecessary expense.

    They are such "tax and spend" liberals.

    ---

    and none of them really look like they should be eating cake...let alone one of the gayest cakes on the planet, and that whole group sex thing looks unnatural too.

    Interesting, too, that no "Christian" baker seems to have refused to do a cake for a bunch of bigots celebrating discrimination. Or perhaps hundreds did object?

    Gay discrimination in the US has BECOME Christian. It is now a defining characteristic of being a fundamentalist US Christian.

    There will always be people like this. Americans are conservative when it comes to sex. You can see a movie where a screwdriver enters someone's neck with blood gushing everywhere but a penis entering a vagina is forbidden...go figure.
    I'm glad these people are eating their cake because the whole thing makes them look like fools.

    I'm glad that gay marriage is being more and more accepted because of gay Americans that is very important.
    Now some gay conservatives here like to cause trouble and I find the whole thing very bizarre to say the least.
    Instead of helping each other some conservatives here put their conservative political views above everything else which doesn't make sense.

    People should have the right to marry who ever they please and do what they want with their bodies.
