So, what he is saying is that if I don't support gay marriage I must also hate black folks.

No not at all, what he's saying is that gay is now a race not a choice. He must be one of those who believe you're born gay not by choice.

I think they are born gay, why would anyone 'choose' to take it in the hiney?

Wow, I was just gone for a few hours and all of this. Since there is so much here, let me touch on a few topics:

1. I stand corrected in my use of the word racist. I'm not sure what the proper term is, gay-basher maybe? Either way, I do consider anti-gay statements and beliefs to be on the same level as racism. That is just how I feel.

2. I am not gay, as has been suggested several times. I have nothing to prove either way, but the fact is I am heterosexual. I do however sympathize with the gay rights movement.

3. Will a symbol do anything? Is posting a pic on Facebook, or here, any sort of power, well probably not. But it does show my support for the cause, no different than I am very proud of the American Flag when I see it or use it. It is a symbol, and symbols invoke hope.

4. Did I do this as an experiment? Well frankly yes. After posting it on Facebook, a forum with broad public view in which most people use their real names, 99% has been positive. So I wondered how it would go here, where people hide behind usernames and faceless avatars. I do know many of you personally, and I really wasn't surprised by the answers I've seen from those of you I know. Those of you I don't know are the ones that tend to be more extreme. Very interesting!

You know my name and I would say the same thing face to face.

So since I am no longer "racist" I am now a "gay basher"? No, I haven't bashed anyone. And just because I don't agree doesn't make me a basher.

This pretty much sums up the core of my beliefs.

I think this was debated here a while ago, and the consensus was that for most they felt they were always gay, not something they chose.

Same thing. Born black, born gay, there is no choice.

It may have been, I don't know. I'm certainly not interested in opening that debate because it's useless. No facts to verify it make for a lot of assumptions. Assumptions are worthless...

It is a series of quotes from the founding fathers and many other significant people from the early days of our country. It will open your eyes.
I bet that book left out some of the influential people who helped found this country that were non-religious and openly criticized it.

Instead of betting me, go read the book and judge for yourself.
