Do you have a point, other than attacking me?

A coherent thought would really be nice. A complete train of thought would be an absolute delight.

If you read the bio again (go ahead, move your lips and read it again R-E-A-L slow) you will see that in the case of Law - your religion has no merit. Now, close your eyes and think that one through for a moment.

Do you want to live under Sharia law? No? How about laws that govern any specific religon? Or, do you think that everyone should live under the laws that YOU agree with? Now, look up the word "Hypocrite" in the dictionary.

I'm not gay, in fact I'm a Grandfather of 7. I have no kids that are gay (hence the grandkids); but some laws are just and some are unjust. Prohibiting a person from living in an apartment because he/she is gay (or you THINK he/she is gay) is an unfair practice. This person is entitled to live anywhere they like, whether they move in next door to you, or in the apartment down the street. You have no right to dictate their life.

Now, if you chose to not associate with them, so be it. That's your choice. Associate with whomeever you like.

If you run a grocery store, you cannot tell that person that you refuse to sell food to them. That person has a right to buy food, the same as you or I. Same thing with buying gas, getting utilities, clothes or anything else.

Do you know what 'Tyranny' even means? You seem to like to throw that word around a bit, and you sound pretty ignorant - so I'll do you the favor of enlightening you to what the word means - you can thank me later.

tyr⋅an⋅ny  /ˈtɪrəni/
–noun, plural -nies.
1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant or absolute ruler.
4. oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler.
5. undue severity or harshness.
6. a tyrannical act or proceeding.

You’re a hypocrite as well considering that you started with the insults and now whine about it. I can read your bio and understand it real easy. You want no mention of religion in the public square. Quote: “If you cannot defend an idea without resorting to religion, and/or your interpretation of scriptures; you are a either simply stupid or gullible, either way, devoid of individual thought.” You claim it should be only a private matter which is a typical talking point of the progressive left-wing. Keep it to yourself hidden behind closed doors is your attitude. Yet here you are claiming that behaviors such as homosexuality and transexuality should not be discriminated against in public.

Basically you favor public expressions of perverse sexuality from being discriminated against but in your own bio you discriminate against religious expression calling those who use it to be “either simply stupid or gullible”.

You obviously do not support the rights of business owners to be able to discriminate against perverse behavior which does show your TYRANNICAL point of view. You instead support the government using force to tell them what behavior they have to accept. You simply want religious expression to be discriminated against.

Keep writing your idiotic rants about how you are not being understood. It is typical.

Yeah, we know, we're sure, in the sake of consistency, that you've...
#1...offered opposite-sex, in-the-sack, sleep-overs for all your kids & eventually your grand-kids as well...
...'cause you don't want to be "unfair" or "dictate" their sleep life...
...and you want everybody to know that all the beds in your house are "equal opportunity" beds for any & all bed-partners...
...and #2 next you're going to start a new L.O.G. House group (League of Grandparents) where you're going to lobby the government to fine grandparents $1,000 nation-wide should they NOT offer their beds as "equal opportunity beds"...
...all under your liberal, tyrannical but nice-sounding banner of, "Hey, everybody has a right to get some shut-eye!"

Well, how consistent are you? Can we expect your L.O.G. charter anytime, now?
