@5cats: No, it's not a hate crime if the owner of the house the break into HAPPENS to be gay...but it might be if the break in BECAUSE he's gay. As far as the two gay guys raping a 13 year old boy for three days, I must have missed that story. Can you post a link please?

Button guy - I agree. I'm a pole smoker but those ubber-fem gay guys emberass me 'cause the media uses pics of them as representative of all gay people. Extremists are irritating... any kind.

And YES it is religion's fault for their Anti-Gay Agenda. Sure they have a right to their opinion, but after promoting their hate, they can't walk away from the results. In other words "Own It Be-ahtch! SNAP"

But the ones that REALLY piss me off are the wanna-be white boys that try pathetically to be black in manner, dress, and speach. Sad really.

Rowkem:

I don't see what the problem with his comment was. I don't like excessively posh accents, it pisses me off, like the gap yah kind of accent.

He finds a certain personality annoying, much like you do i'm sure.

Being annoyed by extremists is not hatred.

I'm slightly annoyed by walking stereotypical cliches who are in my face about it and I'm very annoyed by extremist group advocacy ideologues because they always promote bigotry even if, by some freak of chance, they don't mean to.

Button guy - are your serious? How's this sound:

Black people are fine. It's the REALLY black people I have a problem with.

Jews are fine. It's the SUPER Jewish people I have a problem with.

Don't try and disguise your hate.

Gay people are fine. It's the FLAMING gay people I have a problem with. Though I guess that's true for any denomination. Any extremist is pretty damn annoying.

@5Cats

It's why I don't watch cable news. They tend to blow details the hell out of proportion.

5Cats - you're missing the point. Yes, all groups suffer some bigotry, the point of the story was that gays are more likely to be targeted.

And no, breaking into a homo-house is not considered a hate crime.

As for your example of the kidnappers... if they targeted the 13 year old BECAUSE of his race/religion/etc then it is a hate crime also.

What, every crime committed ON a gay person is a "hate crime" but crimes committed BY gays are ignored by the MSM.
So a guy (who happens to be gay) has his house broken into? HATE crime!
Two gays kidnap a 13 year old boy, beat & rape him for 3 days and leave him to die? NOT a story!

Sorry, while there are real victems of "gay bashing" the same can be said for every group in existance, including whites.

I agree with the "being gay is okay...just don't ACT gay" attitude.

I feel the same way about religious people.

faustsshadow:

What is wrong with homosexuality? They aren't trying to convert you to their sexuality. They don't want every straight man. They don't tell you that sex with a woman shouldn't be acted on. Their choice affects no one other than themselves, and is not wrong.

Just because I don't agree with practicing homosexual acts, doesn't mean I hate them or fear them. There are many inclinations that people have that shouldn't be acted on - I believe homosexuality to be one of those. I have gay friends and I accept them as much as they accept me. I am sick, though, of people who assume that because I believe this way that I am a hate-filled monster.

Sorry that wasn't meant to be forgive, it was meant to be forbid.

If the bible doesn't forbid.

@batmanners

If the bible didn't forgive homosexuality then why do so many religious nuts hate it?

I feel as if you may have missed what my views on this are. I don't have any problem with who someone choses to love (with in reason obviously before some religious nut jumps on me and starts lieing that i support child molestation or some other perversion). I care as much about a friend being gay as i do about myself being straight. Obviously if they've come out to me then i'm proud of their bravery and trust. But other than that, love who you want.

I'm straight and an atheist, and i don't think homosexuality is wrong at all. Whilst yes i don't understand it, and i don't feel turned on by other men, i'm also not turned on by feet or mega busty skinny chicks. Doesn't mean i think it's wrong to be turned on by it.

There is recent research out of Cambridge that strongly indicates some people are just naturally born ass holes. NBA's. They can't help, it's a genetic predisposition towards assholiness.

But more significantly, Yale researchers have found that NBA's are statistically more likely to join religious groups. 150% more likely! In the research, Running for Political Office was a close second with NBA's at 140% likelihood.

Knowing the above, one can't help but wonder why Mel Gibson is not either Pope or President...?

Reganom:

I see what you're saying and I agree. But people who are intolerant and religious will often blame their belief system for the way they think. Realistically, there are as many intolerant Atheists as there are intolerant Christians. however, the Atheists were not taught to be intolerant because of a large fantasy novel.

IMHO, Homophobia doesn't exist. Phobia insinuates a fear. It's not a fear these haters people have...it's heterosexuality. The thought of being gay displeases them in disturbing ways
(as it does me)...but that doesn't mean it's wrong. It's wrong for you maybe, but not wrong for the people it feels right for.

It's not like the gays and lesbians actively go out and prowl for straight people to convert or rape...

And before saying the Bible forbids homosex, if God gives life, why would he make gays if he thinks they are abominations?

I'm straight and atheist, and I will gladly be called a faggot if it means I

@SvampeBob between 1933 and 1945 100,000 people were arrested by the Nazis for being gay.

In Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh has threatened to behead any gay person found in his country.

In Malawi, police launched a formal operation targeting high-profile gays and lesbians across the southern African state. It's resulted in gay-rights supporters facing months of community service and sexually active gays being threatened with decade-long jail sentences.

Senegal was criticized by gay rights groups in 2009 after sentencing two men to eight years in prison for "indecent conduct and unnatural acts."

South Africa, where same-sex marriage was recently legalized, lesbians live in fear of being victimized like Eudy Simelane, who was gang-raped and slain, stabbed 25 times in the face, chest and legs by gang members.

Shappy:

You may not hate gays but your God hates what they do, apparently. The fact that you had to say 'i'm a christian and look i don't hate gays' isn't something that should seperate you from the rest. It should be the norm to be a christian and not hate gays, not the exception. I have a friend who's parents kicked him out for being gay. His parents didn't want a sinner living under their house. Something is wrong when religion makes people feel like that. He stayed with me for a while untill his grandparents managed to set up his room with them. He's been disowned by his parents for being himself, the way their God must have made him.

Frankly i don't care whether someone prefers one gender over the other. It doesn't affect me, it doesn't affect anyone, so why should anyone care.

I don't think that they can compare them self to jew becaus jew were attacked by nazis and mass-murdered
black people were robed of they land, enslaved and sold
hispanice were robed of they land, enslaved and sold
gay people are "only" being beaten up, mocked and discriminated but not mass-murdered, hunted, enslaved and robed of there land
but those whom beat up, mock and discriminate should go and drat them self!

I would really have loved to have seen her response to his final statement. Does anyone know what she said?
