Comparing someone who is gay to a killer, much less a mass killer, even if loosely, puts you way, way out there on the continuum.

"Comparing someone who is gay to a killer, much less a mass killer, even if loosely, puts you way, way out there on the continuum."

No, it does the exact opposite. I think most would agree that having a killer for a child is something more extreme than having a child who adopts a gay lifestyle. I said that I don't think that I could ever even feel shame over a child who went so far as to kill someone. If I felt that way about a murdering child, how would that put me in respect to a "lesser offense," such as having a gay child?

In what way does that put me out there in the continuum?

Unless you're saying that you'd feel ashamed to have a child who killed someone, then I'm not sure where you're coming from on this one.

True, however, fair comparisons have been made.

I wouldn't support adultery, polygamy, prostitution, or any other sexual practice that deviates from the norm, being celebrated, lauded as wonderful, having parades declaring their pride in their chosen deviance, or any other form of sanctioning of such behavior.

I don't hate people who do those things, but I don't celebrate them either. And adultery isn't illegal, it still doesn't merit celebration and pride.

These things are all more of the "not responsible for my behavior" tactics. And can do the country no good, but a lot of harm.

Actually it is way out there on the continuum to conflate and attempt to compare what someone "is" versus to someone "does".

There are no "gay" people, there are people (always heterosexual) who feel predisposed cause unknown to engage in homosexual activity and or people (always heterosexual) who actually choose to engage in homosexual activity.

Not at all...

Homosexuals really hate human life; their whole desire is rooted in the destruction of it...
