Gays are like pedophiles and wife-beaters.

The key to my obnoxious cheerfulness are my expectations. They are very low. I expect nothing from anyone. Thus when they fail miserably (say, the BP clean up) Im not disappointed. And, when people accomplish even the most menial tasks, Im happy.

That being said, the Oklahoma City Council actually approved, 8:1, an OKC Gay Pride Parade.

:-D YAAAAY!!!

Wow, gay pride parade in OKC! What a time we live in!... But what about that one dissenter. Whos that one "NO!" vote...? That fellows name is Brian Walters. Im sure you all have NO IDEA why he voted against it:

The reason I voted no on that is that I'm a born-again Christian and don't believe in the homosexual lifestyle. I don't want my vote to be construed as support, because I really don't support that, the same way that I wouldn't support a group of say pedophiles who wanted to assemble. I would not vote yes on that either, [or] men who beat up their wives. Anything like that.

Not that he hates gays, pedophiles, and wife-beaters, he just doesnt agree with their lifestyle. No joke, he basically says that in a video interview with Channel 4, watch it at the H/T. LOL! What a goddamned moron.

Whatevs, Im gonna go party at the Pride Parade!

"How much you wanna bet that Brian Walters has a wide stance?"

There is something weird about the Religious Reich's insistence that homosexuality is a "lifestyle" and not a natural inclination. Their rhetoric about having to "resist the temptation to sin" might be more introspective than those of us who are comfortable in our heterosexuality care to imagine.

Yeah... seems like he was held under the baptismal font a few hundred seconds too short.

In fact, I wouldn't even be much surprised if he was a closet case in all three of the categories he mentioned.

I disapprove of his born again lifestyle. It causes his head to get pushed waaaay too far up his ass.

I amn always puzzled at how people use "believe in." Brain Walters "doesn't believe in" the homosexual lifestyle. Does this mean he doesn't think such a thing exists, despite all evidence to the contrary?

...Not that I meant "homosexual lifestyle" was a definable entitiy, since the word "lifestyle" is another term that irritates the living piss out of me.

@Nancynew: I think the same thing happens when religious people process "Don't believe in God" as "Don't approve of God"; you get this weird thing where they apparently think atheists are Satanists or dystheists.

Wow, Rho's gonna dress up as a drag queen for the parade! Heck, it just might be worth flying down there all the way from New York!

Happy Pride, ERV!
Boston is this weekend's - but I'm stuck doing stuff with my parents instead. Maybe I'll come out and bring them to a PFLAG event?

Going to a sodomite party eh? Be careful. There was this one party about 3,000 years ago that made history. As a matter of fact two whole cities were incinerated. Be careful at your little sodomy party. You might catch AIDS.

How dare the gayist movement steal and blaspheme the meaning of the rainbow. What? They couldn;t come up with their own symbol, so the little perverts had to steal God's

Everyone knows the rainbow is a sign of a promise to Noah that the entire earth would never be destroyed by flood again. The gayists stole that symbol and blasphemed its meaning. I hope they like global warming becuase there is definitely going to be plenty of it in Hell.

Go ahead and go to your gayist pervert party. Don't mind us normal people.

Ezekiel 16:49: "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy". It's always fun when fundamentalists reveal that for them, it's always all about the cock. It's okay to admit you're gay, Hopey, you don't have to struggle so much against your own identity.

Oh look at all the Christian hate, God unlike man isn't required to be tolerant, nor does he require his followers to be tolerant.Especially when it is written so plainly.

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.It is an abomination.Leviticus 18:22

If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

You could retort with something to the effect of God loves or that only applied to the Jews thou that doesn't negate the previous verses sorry.God does love man, but that doesn't mean he has got to love our sin.

One would think that the place formally known as Sodom, which God destroyed with fire and brimstone would be an obvious reminder of God's disgust for such behavior.

I see eric is too busy fantasizing about gay sex to read the comment immediately above his own. And somehow I suspect he doesn't take the declaration that eating shellfish is an abomination nearly as seriously as his obsession with Teh Ghey.

But the bullshit dogma of eric's cult is all a load of irrelevant crap, since god is imaginary. God's alleged opinion on sexuality is no more relevant than that of Lord Voldemort, they're both fictional characters and generally assholes at that.

@phantomreader42

I lol'd no really I did, I give you facts and you respond with the typical child like insults.

As for my imaginary God, on your judgment day when you stand before this imaginary God, you will stand in shame.

Here's a pro tip, when trying to argue your point.Don't use some random verse, then immediately there after state that
the God who made that scripture is imaginary.It points to the obvious, that which is I'm an atheist and I only use the bible when it is convenient.

So, eric, pointing out that your own cult's dogma contradicts the bullshit you're spewing is a "child like insult"? And a couple of old sayings from a poorly-translated and contradictory book of mythology are somehow "facts", yet quotes from that same mythology that you find inconvenient somehow aren't?

I see. The real problem here is that you do not comprehend basic English. You think that the arbitrary edicts supposedly handed down by an invisible magic tyrant in the sky qualify as undisputable fact when, and ONLY when, they give you an excuse to be a stupid whiny bigot. When those edicts tell you not to wear mixed fabrics, or not to charge interest on loans, or provide detailed instructions on which and how many animals to sacrifice in various circumstances, well THOSE parts just don't exist for you. You think Leviticus is a perfect rulebook for how other people should be forced to live, but the parts that inconvenience you somehow don't count. If even YOU don't believe your cult's book of myths, why should anyone else?

Regarding the confused and uneducated intolerant Catholic biased perisheners, god not only gave his blessing to homosexual relationship he also praised the faith of a married gay man in the Bible. Matthew 8:5-13 and Luke 7:1-10 you may recognize these Biblical stories with the tainted mask of Church misinterpretations spewed to cover their true meanings to be that of a Roman Centurion and his slave being blessed by Jesus when in actuality it is the scripture of a Roman Centurion seeking the help of Jesus to heal his belovéd husband. To understand the truth that's been manipulated by the Church you must understand and have knowledge of ancient times, their culture, and most importantly the language.
In the scripture the Centurion's lover is referred to as a "pais". Pais is the greek word for boy which in itself has a few meanings. It could mean boy as in a blood related son. It also could mean boy as in slave; such as during American slavery the term boy was interchangeable for slave. Also, pais means boy as in he's my boy, my beau. This term alone gives no indication alone as to which definition the Centurion is implying. The context of the usage needs to be examined. When one further reads the scripture one finds the other greek words "entimos doulos". Doulos is another word for slave however entimos means honored. The term entimos doulos is used by the others around the Centurion saying his pais is his honored slave. Also the Centurion also mentions he has other douloses that do as he commands there for by refering to this one as his Pais he is calling him his beau, his love. Just as back then woman were bought and were property so were male spouses purchased and owned. The scripture refers to Jesus not condemming two men for being married but rather shows the dedication, love, faith, and the lengths the Centurion was willing to go to in order to save his male husband. A Roman soldier, the opposition to Jesus and Jews during this time that followed Jesus' teachings comes to Christ and asks humbly for Jesus to save his husband and to heal him. Christ does not damn this man nor their marriage. What does Jesus do? He says the word and heals the soldiers love (odd gay men in the military too right in the Bible) and further proclaims how great is the faith of this soldier as he believed Jesus need not see his love in person but rather just say the word and he would be healed. Jesus followed his own teachings which most Catholics have forgotten, Judge not lest ye be judged.
As for then the scripture of Levitcus, that for a man to lie with a man such as with a woman. That scripture refers to polygomy. That a man who shares his marital bed with both a man and a woman at one time that that is an abomination. Not the act of a man to lie with a man. This scripture refers to excess and greed of men and that extravagances of having more or indulging souly in oppulence that THAT desire of greed is an abomination. Therefore uneducated Catholics who show up to Church and simply listen to the misunderstood scriptures are simply listening to the perspective cover-up of a Medieval Church's determination to control people by dividing them amongst themselves and more importantly dividing them themselves to make them seek forgiveness for their alledged "sinful" ways.
There is no sin to be gay, there never was. There was though a Church that wanted to gain the following of the majority and to do so needed to create an enemy they could scapegoat for their problems. Sound familiar? It happened again with Hitler and his propaganda centuries later; however thankfully Hitler failed. It is time to realize that the Church began its followship by damning innocent children of God and that that is not what God wanted at all nor Jesus. But the Church is comprised of men who were flawed and sought to usurp control and power over the land instead of instill and preach the Lord's TRUE MESSAGE OF LOVE. For those who need further proof visit WhatWouldJesusDo.org and you can read about the Lesbian marriage in the Book of Ruth between her and Nioami. It's time to overcome hatred and focus on the message of Love that God spoke of. It is time for Enlightenment, Tolerance, and the New Golden Age of Awakening. So look to the light and wake up already, God never damned ANY of his children. He loves them too much. There are only ten commandments to follow and bash thy gay neighbor is not one!
