    C’mon America, lets become like Sodom and Gomorrah, lets test God’s mercy, lets give Him the finger and SHOW HIM that we can go completely against the order in which He set a MAN and a WOMAN together.

    By the way, even a scientist will tell you that homosexuality is out of natural order, its not normal, its dysfunctional, and its SUICIDAL to the species.. duhhh.. only an idiot would think its normal, it needs to be treated with counseling and love, not coddled and embraced –

    The “bigot” clearly made more sense.. lol it’s true.. you people only constitute like less than 5% of the nation, move to Amsterdam or Northern England and same sex yourselves to aids and death but quit RAMMING it down normal Americans’ throats PLEASE.. geesh… its like sticking a PENIS is a womans face when they are begging you to leave them alone, almost like HARASSING MAINSTREAM AMERICANS WITH YOUR LIFESTYLE… some people are less “seared in the mind” and don’t want that crap jammed down their kids’ throats in schools and religious values contradicted or bashed by people who don’t believe there is a right or wrong..
    Just because we don’t agree doesn’t mean we are WRONG – or BIGOTS, it probably means we are NORMAL –
