The gay-bashing on this site is brutal.
I have some friends that are gay; some openly, some not. Two of them are in the Navy and they both told me that I would be surprised to know the number of gays and or bisexuals that are serving in the armed forces. They have said that most would prefer the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Personally, I don’t think anyone has the right to know or ask whether you are gay or straight.
That being said, hatred that seems to spew from the religious and far right regarding gays, is what keeps a large number of gays from being aligned with the conservative movement. In many aspects, they identify themselves as conservative, at least the dozen or so that I know, but can’t understand the hatred over their sexual preference.
The leadership in the conservative movement needs to address it, and make the tent bigger instead of eliminating 10% of our population over their sexual preference.
And for you “bible-thumpers” that screaming right now, you might want to take a closer look at that Bible. While there are a couple of references that homosexual behavior is an abomination, you will also notice that the Bible demands that live a life of kindness, love and forgiveness and those ideals are discussed far more often than anything else.
Gays aren’t going away and its time for our society to evolve and get over it.
Men poking their penis up where the turds come out and think they should be proud of that, have parades, fly flags etc is down right mentally sick.
They base all of their lifestyle on their kind of sex and think we should all accept it.
The idiots who are out there saying they like homosexuals because they have homo friends are ignorant idiots.
Homosexuals when they are with each other act differently to when they are with normal straight people.
Idiots which support the queer agenda need to tell their pals that they are making it easier to get diseases, think about it .
Having fecal sex and maybe not washing that feces off their penis for even an hour creates disease.
Then think where is the colon, what about the prostate and that thin film which stops the feces from getting to the prostate.
As for you saying maybe more homosexuals will be conservative is a crock of crap, who do you work for the log cabins?
Men cannot reproduce with men, nor can a woman wearing a strap on pretending to be a guy during sex .
IT TAKES A MALE AND A FEMALE.
That is what nature intended and therefore what homosexuals do is unnatural

“Gays arent going away and its time for our society to evolve and get over it.”
How is homosexuality ‘evolved’ since they cannot reproduce?? Homosexuality is devolution not evolution.
‘Evolved’ is just a liberal word for liberals stomping their feet like little children and screaming they want reality to be different.
I never thought I'd see a post from a long time FReeper that included that insult. You're on the wrong site.
"As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty."
So.... what this means in your estimation, is that even though you acknowledge that homosexuality is an abomination (heinous sin) to God - because the message of love, kindness and forgiveness appear to have more mention in the bible in your estimation - somehow NEGATES the fact that God views homosexuality as sin?
I'll restate the Apostle Paul "What then? Shall we sin all the more so that Grace may abound? God forbid!!"
I guess the word REPENTANCE is one you overlooked. See, THAT COMES BEFORE forgiveness can take place.
What you apparently stand for, is that we must be kind and tolerate homosexual sex being promoted and practiced - to get over what God said and accept that such sin and abomination is here to stay. So let's normalize it, accept it, declare God unkind and unjust and embrace the sin.
God forbid. And people wonder how this nation ended up with Obama.
