I agree. You shouldn't subsidize anything that you wouldn't do otherwise. I am not putting words into your mouth. I initially said who cares about homosexuals, and you said you do. You will have no argument with me on govt intervention on education with or without the homosexual agenda.
Too much information. I agree spending on medical research shouldn't be political, but AIDS affects everyone. In the west it is disproportionately gays and drug users, but in Africa it is heterosexuals leading a profligate lifestyle. Anyhow, but homosexuals should have the equal rights as heterosexuals. We should recognize homosexual spousal benefits just like we do heterosexual ones.
Same question again--why should anyone, homo or normal, have to perform sex acts to obtain spousal benefits?
They don't. There are lots of heterosexual couples who are having no sex. It is not a sex act that qualifies them to get benefits. They have chosen their family structure, and want their family structure to get the same benefits as heterosexual ones. But, how do we distinguish between roommates and couples? That is where marriage comes in. I would be just as happy if we didn't recognize any form of marriage.
Yup, and if they kept it private no one would know or care.
But since they have been shoving it down our collective throats for about 25 - 30 years, and are now vigorously indoctrinating children in school, it's about time they went back into the closet.
I suppose you are the type who likes to sweep the dust under the rug.
You are making a moral equivalence between someone considering the practice and promotion of same sex acts wrong, and a practitioner of same sex acts promoting same.
They are not morally equivalent. One is Wrong with a capital W, and one is Right with a capital R.
No, I like to sweep the dust into a piece of flattened newspaper and toss it into the woodstove.
This is apropos of what, exactly?
Wait a minute....we are supposed to pull our kids out of school because of homosexuality being pushed or promoted. And, what about when teachers promote God or creation, do those against pull their kids out? No, they fight and win. We have to dismiss God, yet suck up evolution. We have to accept homosexuality while they trample marriage. Christ isn't allowed in Christmas so we don't offend the other religions who oppose, but somehow their decor for Christmas remains. It doesn't stop with the "bedroom".
Econ-grad has this illusion that what is private can't hurt anybody. A perfect example of privacy gone wrong would be the young couple who were on meth and got lost. They froze to death because they didn't know what in the world was going on and couldn't get help to where they were. Hey....but it was in private. Noone knew they were doing meth. It was their own business....
You go little jeremiah, showing that econ-grad up in a BIG way, but aren't we alll???? :)
What? That makes no sense. I am not making moral equivalence between any two things. What I am saying is that how people choose to lead their personal lives should not be anyone's business. Govt need not promote anything, but it simply cannot discriminate anyone from pursuing things they want to that doesn't harm others.
If you are an atheist and don't like your kids being taught about God, then pull your kid out and send them to atheist schools.
This "who cares" attitude, is as responsible for the state of our culture, as the gay lobby themselves! Perhaps in ways, even more so.
How exactly do you suppose AIDS spread into the heterosexual community?
I think what is happening here is that you are inadverdently seeking help from homosexuality......
NOW I GET IT!!!!!
A. You did make the moral equivalence between being "gay" and criticizing homosexual behavior, and the promotion of each POV.
B. Your statement that "how people choose to lead their personal lives should not be anyone's business" is a facile libertarian sound bite sound good meaningless statement. There are so many caveats and limitations and conditions that nullify it, that any person with rational thinking skills wouldn't even make that statement.
C. So you're saying that same sex behavior and the promotion of same to children doesn't harm anyone. Are you mad?
Why dont you go to Africa and look around? If you think AIDS is a gay problem, then I hope no one ever sleeps with you.
You can raise your kids any way you want to. That has nothing to do with what I am saying.
How about this as a meaningless statement? Stop subsidizing risky behavior/life-style and you will have less problems in society. The govt today bails out a lot of social rejects which encourages them to take on risky habits. Let them rot on the street and most of them will not take up those habits.
