    Gay people are not violent, why do Christians (who are violent and thuggish) tend to project us as such icon_confused.gif We are certainly not like them
    'Gay Mafia Thugs', 'armed to the hilt' suggests our community violently over threw their small business icon_rolleyes.gif

    An Oregon bake shop that made headlines for refusing service to a lesbian couple has closed, the company announced on Facebook.

    Sweet Cakes By Melissa was ordered to pay $135,000 to Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer after refusing to bake a cake for the couple’s 2013 wedding, a move that violated the state’s anti-discrimination laws. But the right-wing media isn’t blaming the bakery’s closure on the actions of owners Aaron and Melissa Klein.

    The Strident Conservative website blamed the “Gay Mafia thugs working on behalf of the LGBT radicals.” These “thugs” are “armed to the hilt, and stand ready to advance their pro-LGBT, anti-Christian, anti-American agenda,” the website claimed, in comments that were also picked up by Red State.

    Conservative commentator and Fox News regular Todd Starnes blasted a “homofascist mob” and “left-wing bigots and bullies,” while the Gospel Herald claimed the bake shop was the victim of “persecution.”

    State officials maintain the case was simply about following the law.

    “This case is not about a wedding cake or a marriage,” Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian wrote in his decision last year, according to The Oregonian. “It is about a business’s refusal to serve someone because of their sexual orientation. Under Oregon law, that is illegal.”

    The Kleins appealed the ruling, but the process is still pending. While the bakery itself closed in 2013, the couple had continued to operate the business out of their home until the closure, Gay Star News reported. Based on the bakery’s Facebook page, they seemed to specialize in cakes baked inside mason jars.

    A crowdfunding page set up to help the couple remains active after raising more than $400,000.

    However, the Bowman-Cryers told The Advocate that they have received “hateful, violent threats” from right-wing bigots who are angry at them for asking a baker to bake a cake.

    Gay people are not violant, Oh please. One of the things that's had an everlasting effect on one's life, is working and living though the Gay Plauge Era, working in a bathhouse. I've survived to be middle age, and HIV -. When so many never reached 30, or 40. One was a witness to so many gay and bi men, recklessly endangering life, by not wanting to deprive their dick of pleasure knowing they were HIV+. Giving other gay and bi men a slow and humiliating death, when a gun to the head would of been kinder. Oh no, gay men are not violant, and then our committees also have the feminazis.

    If you want to argue that gays are just as violent as the rest of the population, look to stats for domestic violence. We are about the same.

    But your notion of AIDS being a violent and intentional act is ludicrous.

    But, but.., I thought he claimed that he's sympathetic to gays with HIV/AIDS. Was in the battlegrounds before any of us. And certainly before me, who was living in denial (as I admit) but serving the US honorably in uniform.

    But as soon as I took that uniform off in 1994 I began to realize my true orientation. And made HIV/AIDS my principle personal cause, that it remains.

    Something I'm not allowed to do, according to him. Along with being gay. Since he's the only "bona-fide" gay man on this site. (I've never seen the paperwork establishing that claim)

    In any case, anything God_Says posts, or did previously under his dozens of previous screen names and former RJ accounts, can always be dismissed. No one here takes him seriously, or ever has.

    It was passive aggressive, and the fact men knew they were HIV+, and did not care if they passed it on, so long as they were not rejected, and their did did not miss out. Then yes they're actions were deliberate. I know what I witnessed and survived. How many times did one hear, : but......... I was in denial, to justify they're actions. Even in the eyes of the law, ignorance is no excuse. Like the guys who refused to be tested, and would claim, but I never knew. If they partook in unsafe sexual activities. Then they must assume the are/were positive. Thus was it murder or manslaughter? All I know is, back then. A gun to the head would of been kinder.

    When one was to first shard this experience in my life, Red Vespa / Art Deco felt a need to attack one for my honesty, about a era many in the gay communities would rather be forgotten with time.

    Oh Bobby, dear half brother. since you spent most of your life not even being able to be honest to your self, one takes what you say with a grain of salt, as it has little credence. As soon as you retired drop the army, poof you were suddenly gay. Seems like a change of lifestyle to me mate. How many of you past army comrades would agree your time was honorable now. Since you once blamed for for you looking down on us homos, as being dirty, and beneath you. One doubts you having a partner with AIDS.

    Oh my story on my experience with te Gay Plauge Ear has never changed. But one has been a witness to your story over the years changing. As you have told us, you don't look at the negative in your life. No you simply project it onto others. . In fact homos, and bi's are more mean to each other than religion is to us.

    Dear half brother, Bobby Boo boo. The only reasion you want members of RJ to dismiss one. Is because you know one speaks the truth, and at the end of the day with your bullying pretentious narcissism, you really are not a nice man. Remember mate, you started it, so don't go playing the victim, or saint.

    PS. Denial or not, you still could not of done what you did, if it wasn't for the fact your a bisexual; dear half brother. Another truth you true to dismiss. Regardless, your actions forbade you from being a Bona Fide Homosexual. As you are a bisexual, living a gay lifestyel now. Were for the sake of self advancement, you chose to live most of your life as a married breeding hetrosexual; dear half brother.

    Right-wingers always blame everyone but themselves; the foundation of right-wingism is the certainty that you are right, and any one who opposes you is evil. It's a pathology and an inability to deal with difference.

    Arguably, gay people in general are not violent. But gay white liberals are a different story. They are intolerant, authoritarian, and selfish. They will bulldoze anyone who disagrees with them. And ultimately, yes, they will become violent. That's fascism - first the hug, then the fist.

    Correct us Bona Fide Homosexuals don't have a reputation as a whole for being violant. But...... the feminazi section of the lesbian communities is a very diffrent story. Also with so many diffrent elements coming into play with the bisexuals, once again is a diffrent story. We are not one community and never have been.

    True, and fuck "community." These LGT fascists insist that we all think the same way. They hate individualism. They want us in the community, collective, GULAG, plantation, concentration camp. FUCK THEM. (I skipped the B because there is in fact, no "bisexual community.")

    You know the bi's do have a pride flag, not that we see much pride coming from the liberal bisexuals here at RJ. You are correct there is no such thing as a bisexual, as they either stand under the banner of straight or gay.

    As for the Liberal propaganda of the creation of the American alphabet soup; GLBTIQ. Attempting to shove many diffrent tribes under the same teepee, hasn't made us one. We are way to diversified for that.
