Minnesota gays upset over pro-gay-marriage ads featuring straight people
daily caller ^ | 9-27-12 | Sarah Hofmann

Posted on 09/27/2012 8:01:07 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

With gay marriage on November ballots in several states, gay rights groups have been buying airtime to run ads in favor of marriage equality. But most of the ads feature heterosexual people on-screen — a choice that’s angering some in those states’ gay communities. Gay Minnesotan Alexander Zachary finds it offensive. “The only thing I can think of is they’ve hired a political strategist and they’s said straight people don’t want to see gay people on TV,” said Zachary.

Are the gays admitting that straight people “look different?” How do they know and why do they care if a person in a commercial is straight or gay?

Most people in the marketing business believe being on TV naked with a feather duster up your ass isn’t a good way to sell a point. I guess the gays don’t see it that way.

I guess this guy was angry about the ads, too:

Six churches in Buffalo were the target of a rock-throwing rampage and inflammatory messages about homosexuality regarding religion and sexual orientation. Police have arrested a 30-year-old man who said he hurled rocks and left offensive messages about homosexuality at several churches in one west metro community due to "his anger with God."

The only thing libs think a straight white middle aged man is good for is selling the public and garnering trust. Otherwise we aren’t allowed our own clubs, magazines, gyms or dressing rooms. And we’re the only “species” that you’re allowed to beat up, mame and steal from without it being a “hate crime”. Also, we’re good for being the goof ball, idiot in sitcoms. Especially when we play a Father. In which case it helps if we’re fat, bald and really white. That’s especially funny and easy for his TV children to ridicule.

great point... maybe those actors were in the closet, and they just outed them! (look of shock).

I know this opinion isn’t popular here, but I have no issue with gay couples legally joined, and enjoying all the same rights as straight couples... I do believe that the term marriage should referred to the union of a MAN and WOMAN....but when do we ever get back to point that straight people can celebrate being straight, whites can celebrate being white....and if we aren’t going to do that, then let’s get rid of biased organizations like NAACP, Black Congressional Caucus, Gay Pride, etc.

That's what I was thinking, they are famous for saying what a person does in private is no one Else's business.

Well, is it or isn't it?

When are they NOT upset? For a group whose symbol is a rainbow,they’re terribly wee-wee’d up about everything and anything. Like petulant,spoiled children,they kick,scream and hold their breaths until they get their way.UGH.

I guess those churches will be putting up larger , more conspicuous rainbow flags outside.

I see them already on many ELCA and Methodist churches here in the Twin Cities.

Now why would they hide who they are?
When they came prancing out of the closet and onto main street in parades and getups it was supposed to be so liberating...
now they are being stuffed back in the closet! It's so unfair!

why don't they show their eal face?

The reason gays are perpetually upset is that deep down inside, despite all their overt rationalization, they know that what they are doing is wrong. They cannot escape that knowledge, and it burdens them with guilt every time they commit their acts of perversion. That guilt makes them miserable. They then inflict that misery on everyone around them because they can’t stand being around happy, well-adjusted people. Misery loves company.

Those churches forget that Jesus would have invited gay people into the church, and then clearly and unambiguously told them to stop sinning.

Is there an equivalent of a gay union or something? What if homosexuals all went on strike?

“The only thing I can think of is they’ve hired a political strategist and they’s said straight people don’t want to see gay people on TV,”

Gee, ya THINK?!

This is one of the fundamental problems that I see with "gays". For many of them, it's not enough that you allow it. YOU MUST LIKE IT. YOU MUST APPROVE OF IT. I.e., you're not allowed to believe, to THINK, that there's anything wrong with it. (Witness the Chick-fil-A kerfuffle.)
Sorry, ain't gonna happen, here.

And so it becomes an insult that they must rely on straight people to even plead their case, to appeal to other straight people, on behalf of "gays".
