OWK, “one who knows”, he had a habit of blowing the clarion for anything gay back in the day.
He tried to be subtle, but he pretty much outted himself.
Often.
He got himself zotted eventually.
I wasn’t present for it.

Homosexuals molest children at a much higher rate than normal people. Homosexuals should not adopt or foster children. Homosexuality is a mental illness. Mentally ill people should not adopt or foster children.

If you have any sympathy whatsoever for the gay rights agenda, you should probably find another site to frequent. The gay rights agenda is an explosive buried deep within the moral foundation of this nation. No one at FR will long tolerate posters who suggest that setting the fuse alight is not a big deal or that it is the “fair” thing to do.

“Once upon a time, marrying someone of a different race was considered to be an actionable crime... Once upon a time women were considered property...”

The problem in putting blacks and women in with the subject at hand is one of category error. The reason those two things you listed were wrongs is that being black and being female are human norms. They are constructive. They advance humanity.

Homosexual behavior is defective and destructive. Anything that advances and encourages that behavior is also defective and destructive. Being an open homosexual is so destructive it significantly shortens that persons life span and places them in a category with other immune impaired populations susceptible to a large variety of maladies.

Encouraging someone to engage in homosexual behavior has got to be one of the uglier most hateful actions in any society.

and that time was when exactly?

Conservatives have always advocated that marriage is between one man and one woman.

It really is that simple and if you want them to marry then you are helping them in their agenda plus advocating any kind of marriage no matter what crap one exposes like well In know one and they just want to be left alone

Stop comparing a mental illness which is also a sexual perversion to people who are born black or female. Or antiquated ideas about keeping people who are born black or female in bondage.

Standard homosexual agenda talking points wonn’t get you longevity on FR.

I like what Sir Elton says about it. He does not feel gays need marriage. He is perfectly happy with his British domestic partnership or whatever they have.

Why mess with thousands of years of social history?

It is not possible to be a conservative and also to be a backer of same-sex marriage.

The whole idea of conservatism is to “conserve” those values, ideals, and processes of the past that have lasting value.

I might remind the liberals who are wolves within conservatism that the vast body of world history rejects homosexuality and has always done so. There are very few exceptions.

This is because human history has shown the behavior to be counter to a sound, healthy, robust culture.

There are plenty more on this thread alone, if you go back and read through the posts.

People who don’t come right out and say they support the homosexual agenda, but to them it’s of no consequence.

*So what if a gay couple adopts children and is doing a fantastic job of it? It’s all OK.*

Jesus, He is the only way (in short: I believe this world will ~never~ go back the same way untill Christ makes it right in the final days aka revelation)!

Only individuals can be made whole, but the world is broken.

As for how we win politically!..? My best guess is that we argure with the libertarians on a rational basis, and that means that they must agree with us that “gay rights” is big government because it has been fostered on us (unconstitutionally) through un-elected, judicially activists jurists.

Remove all government from tax, and marriage purposes, then let the “churches” who preform such vile abominations become withered away by God!

There is exactly one position for any principled conservative to take on homomarriage:

It’s for the states to decide.

From there, I would imagine most conservatives would want to word to oppose it at the state level. But we must start with the consistent philosophical position of this being a states-rights issue.

it’;s what they do full time.

they join churches, clubs, parent groups etc to get people to like them , don’t tell their new friends that they are homosexuals and then when they feel they have the groups confidence and friendship they tell them that they are homosexuals.

They move to places and once they get enough of them they take over, push their agenda and elect their kind of pervert.

A homosexual I knew up north even said on their websites they are encouraged to move to areas and take them over plus get into groups and infiltrate them.

Sadly some even on here fall for their crap.

Just look at their new group which was the log cabins but now use another name.
They are trying to divide the right on the issue or wear us down.

Elton has campained for the elimination of age of consent laws which protect children from predatory adults.

Elton's musical talent does not excuse his nasty perversion.

I’d also add that comparing women and black to gays is apples and oranges..

Women and blacks, latinos, whites, whatever these are inherent qualities that they were created with.

Homosexuality is not, no one is born gay, it is a sexual disorder (mentally, possibly spiritually), and an act, that is all. It’s probably better to compare it to alcoholism..

exactly black woman and a white man can have babies and is what nature intended.

two of the same sex canno0t have babies therefore it is an unnatural act.

Fact is they have sex with each other because it is how they get off sexually and turned on sexually.

Love, well if it is love then why is it we all love other things, our pets, family etc but we feel nothing to having sex with them.

I believe they are trying to infiltrate. And it’s all too easy for them. People in general don’t want to be seen as mean. So devious deviants can push their agenda because they have smeared normal people as being intolerant and hateful. Resisting the mentally ill is not intolerant.

God doesn’t give up on anyone, He gives us free will to choose Him or not, and until our last breath we have that choice. In this life, anyway.

He doesn’t say ever that He accepts every behavior as worthy or according to His will or desire.

agreed.
the more though who speak up against this agenda the more others will see they are not alone.
The far left have used PC to silence those who disagree with their radical agenda for years and it is high time people stopped being bullied by PC.
People have given their lives including my old military pals friends to give us this country and if they can do that then we can speak up.

YOU HEAR THAT GOP, SPEAK THE HELL UP.

Of course they are violent. Who is killing homosexuals via AIDS? Hint: Other homosexuals.

Plus, their sexual practices are extremely violent, and their rate of violent crime, especially against each other, is higher than average.

The only good thing about homosexualism is that it doesn’t cause abortions. But that doesn’t prevent it from being an abomination.
