Why should any work place have a position on gay or straight?  If it is a place of business shouldn't it BE a place of business?  Unless your employment is under a politician there really is no use on taking sides.  Whatever happened to professionalism?

So, people have the belief that gay is ok...good for them.  We're in a free country and they can believe that.  But not everyone has the same belief...  And mocking Christian owned Chick-fil-A for having Christian beliefs is very hypocritical.  So, Christians are supposed to stand against thier faith and support gays or they'll be called intolerant???  That's like Christians expecting everyone to believe in what they believe, but not have to go to church if they don't want to, or else calling people intolerant.  Very much a double standard.

I don't care if the polls show 99.999% in favor of gay marriage,

 

I make up my own mind. 

 

GAY IS NOT OK...

I am getting really tired of hearing about all this gay crap and the homosexual's agenda to force their disgusting lifestyle down our throats.

 

I'm sick of not being able to voice my opinion without being called a "bigot" by the same people who claim to be so tolerant of others' views. Yeah, they're tolerant as long as you agree with their views, but, if you don't, well you're just a backwards a** regressive neanderthal. They refuse to acknowledge that some people will simply never accept homosexuality as normal and don't believe that it is necessary to do so in order to live in a "progressive" society.

 

If living in a progressive society means being forced to accept things that run contrary to my beliefs under threat of boycott, alienation or even arrest, then no thanks.......I'd prefer to NOT live in a progressive society. But this is the lie of the left.......that living in a progressive society necessitates that we all accept homosexuality. I guess society hasn't progressed until just the last couple of decades since homos have been coming out of the closet and forcing society to accept their lifestyle. Hogwash....

 

Hey all you homos.......quit pushing your filth on us normal people. Live your life and let us live ours. You do NOT have the right to marry. Marriage has ALWAYS been between a man and a woman, so quit perverting it to suit your agenda.

Do you know that SB48 drafted and passed by a San Francisco LGBT lawmaker forces teachers in California to teach kids as young as Kindergarteners about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and transgender every year until they are 12th grade?  According to this new law, teachers can only "reflect positively" about the LGBT lifestyle. 

It is best to let parents teach their own kids (at an appropiate age), it is very bad that this lawmaker (Mark Leno) is forcing his agenda on our kids. 

We have to join the www stopsb48 com effort to stop this bill, their signature campaign called "CLASS ACT" has a deadline of July 11th.  We need to help them collect 500000 signatures to repeal this nonsense SB48 law.

humans have free will.

behavior and values are taught and learned.

impulses alone never justify behavior.

same-sex without exception never create life.  same-sex can never be 'equal' to male-female.

to claim it is takes a coward, liar, and/or fool.

The terms homosexual and marriage are mutually exclusive. America is being sold a bill of goods that will end badly. Every civilization that fell, fell morally first. When morality falls, families fall, society falls, ultimately the nation falls. What would the world be like if everyone turned gay?.....uninhabited.

ok ok ok here we go take a deep breath.. does it really effect you if gay people marry, no not really, but with that being said.  Even if I still don't agree with it.  you  can not ACCEPT me, because I don't see YOUR VIEW!  Hypercritical, maybe just a tad!  I have nothing against gay people, but why ask my opinion, if my opinion differs from yours?  It is either your way or the highway, so what's the point in even giving people a choice!  this has nothing to do with civil rights movement.  you dont sit in the back of the bus, you don't drink from different water fountains, you have not suffered like so many other RACES!!!  If you are gay cool, that's your deal, but stop forcing me to accept your view!!!!

why does 10percent of the population make so much noise. Its intersting that being gay has been considered abnormal until recently. I feel like there is an agenda here. It will be interesting to see what happens next. this is not the end . Marriage o.k, them what because thats not all gay people want. I dont agree with the life style how come the media doesnt take that into consideration? If I were to "come out" the media would praise me, but if I say I dont agree with your lifestyle I'm a bigot? thats a bunch of bull. As the article states the attempt to make gay marriage law has failed in almost every state. Quit bombarding me with your crap. I dont care who you sleep with. It doesnt mean you have rights.You can yell as loud as you want, its not natural, and you can't prove that it is.

I'm not a bible expert but in the Old Testement didn't God send angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah ???  Isn't that where the word Sodomy came from?  He must have had his reasons and perhaps was sending us all a message. Personnally I'm for civil unions but prefer the sanctity of marriage as between a man and women.

What about my right to not give a crap about who you're sleeping with in your spare time?  I feel like my right to NOT hear about your sexual preference is being violated.

God loves every one of His CREATION. He did not approve of man with man, woman with woman. This is human error and lust. People who don't believe in a Creator or the Bible as God's word can create any garbage they want. Remember God LOVES people, it's their sin He hates. Read the first chapter of Romans, in the Bible, see if you get what God is saying, not man. We'll all see in the end.If believing in Biblical meaning of marriage is a fairytale, which I don't believe it is, I have nothing to worry about. But, if the Bible is true a lot of people will have hell to pay. Your choice can determine your after life.. I'll stick with God and His Son, JESUS. Thank you very much!!!! Oh yea, I do look at who's supporting this santanic lie!!

[BRIEFING.COM] The Nasdaq Composite (+0.5%) and S&P 500 (+0.2%) posted modest gains on Thursday, but not before enduring a morning dip into the red, which took place in reaction to reports indicating Russia has commenced military exercises on the Ukrainian border.

The news from Europe knocked the key indices from their early highs, while giving a boost to safe-haven assets like gold futures (+0.5% to $1290.80/ozt), Treasuries (10-yr yield -1 bps to 2.69%), and the Japanese yen (102.30 ... More
