    First off, I've been a lurker for the past few months, figured I'd start interacting now. So hello everyone! icon_biggrin.gif

    Now onto the topic, my friend showed me this today, and I couldn't get through 2 seconds of it without being filled with rage:

    http://www.theragingelephant.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=188:gay-marriage-will-lead-to-the-downfall-of-society&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=87

    Are people really this hateful? I've ran into a few people who dont agree with my lifestyle, but they are understanding. This guy just takes hate to another level...gays will lead to the downfall of society, really?

    How do you guys deal with this kind of ignorant behavior, or do yall even experience that much?

    Thoughts on the article?

    There is such a thing as invincible ignorance and the blogger is proof of it. Ignore crap like that, there is no point in arguing because you are not going to convince him.

    Hahaha all I read was the first line. (paraphrasing) "If you are a minority you have no right to have your own beliefs." Might as well bleach my hair blonde and dye my eyes blue.. thats how god wanted it.
    Alright thats all I needed to read. I agree with the others, don't waste your time.

    Read this instead (I wrote this for NewsVine shortly after the election) for some comic relief:

    Gay Marriage, Obama Foretell End of Society

    It's official. Now that the State of Connecticut has lobbed another east coast "TAKE THAT!" to the west, the finally volley in the game of gay marriage pingpong will most certainly result in the end of society as we know it. If it doesn't, our descent into Marxist Socialism and Unfettered Terrorism will be all but guaranteed with the inauguration of That One as our 44th President of the United States.

    Immediately following Wednesday's announcement by the State of Connecticut that gays would be allowed to marry inside its borders, every heterosexual marriage in the state instantly dissolved into divorce, with the exception of those who had fled to California, where the recently-passed Proposition 8 formed a Jesus Shield around their sacred, religious unions.

    "I had been married to Timothy for 42 years, but within seconds of the first couple of gays getting married, our marriage certificate burst into flames and our family was ruined" cried Elys Ilynn of Stamford. "Now my son has a life partner and my daughter ran off to join something called a Lillith Fair."

    Further complicating things was the immediate influx of over three million California gays and lesbians who are seeking refuge in the states of Connecticut and Massachussetts.

    Patty Hampton of South Boston wondered what the impact of so many new gays would be. "We already have 741 hair salons in the greater Boston area - what the hell are we supposed to do with all these relationship-wanting gay stylists?" Thinking for a moment, she then added "Well, they are superficial beyond belief, so they will probably spend way more on their Satan weddings than normal people would." She then showed off her $18 ring that her husband, who was unavailable for comment due to his current incarceration, presented her on their wedding day.

    President-Elect Obama, meanwhile, ignored cries from citizens of both states as he remains far too busy plotting the social revolution set to start on January 20th, 2009.

    "Let's face it - gays make lots of money, and they have zero deductions for children, so they'll get theirs soon enough. In the meantime, I will maintain my campaign position - if gays want to be as miserable as most heterosexual married couples are, I am completely comfortable delegating the spreading of marital misery to the states."

    The commentary following the article pretty much lays the author out as a dumbass. This stain is a minority of one. Don't worry about him.

    But the root of much of this hate is from christians, and they feel that because the Bible says homosexuality is wrong, and an abomination to their god, it validates their hate.

    No Christians can not be excluded from that.

    Oh i wish i had of read you post earlier.

    *brain shrinking*

    however i must say(may get shot down), Miss America said she didnt think marriage should be between a man and a woman, and everyone got angery. I didnt think American states allowed it? and its a democracy right?
    so the people whom got angery = the people who vote NO for gay marriage?

    This is just more baseless hot air from some narrow-minded, bible-thumping screwball that does not have a life. So I don't pay any attention to these brain-dead, right wing windbags. They just love playing the damn fool by cooking up all this nonsensical bullshit about gay marriage.

    I find that the reason these things are written is out of fear. They fear because people are no longer listening to their rhetroic. Younger people have no problem with gay people unless they have been brainwashed by these yahoos. But, most young people have been exposed to gay people and they just thing being gay is just another attribute...doesn't mean it will rub off or that all of the sudden they will be turned gay. Gays are no longer in the closet...we are out in the open and in politics and movies, and plays, and everywhere...so it scares the bejsesus out to these people because they no longer can control the flock.
