I abhor those places. And of course people in this country gave one of the shitheels who supports that nonsense the Vice Presidency.

Re: Revenge is mine, bitches

Beyond all the drama - good for your nephew to do what he wants to do. Maybe he'll change his mind over time. Maybe not. Give him the freedom to figure it out himself.

I think the root of the damaging relational behaviors, is when one person insists on forcing their own decisions on another person. People need to arrive at their own answers. Influence them through your own actions (for instance, maybe he looked up to you in some way?). When you start telling someone "you need to do it my way", nothing good comes of that.

I think it is outlawed. Two pastors from one of the "treatment" places shown in the program were sentenced to 20 years behind bars for the abuse they meted out. But the reporter said that many facilities continue to exist underground.
And I think the people behind, or founder of, that infamous Exodus International group renounced the idea of "fixing" gays.

I don't have a "real problem with gay people"...I have a "problem" with homosexuality being pushed and promoted...or being used in a way to go after people's beliefs and their livelihood.

I also have a "problem" with heterosexual promiscuity being promoted.

I have gay people in my family. Did I disown them? Nope. Do I love them all the same? Yep.

I can call myself a 'tarded bigot if I want to.

Ain't a gape in space big enough to stop me.

Want to assign it to yourself...must be something between your ears telling you that your icky poo fear is a load of shit.

It's telling that your problems are with "homosexuality" and "heterosexual promiscuity". Not "heterosexuality".

And I'm glad you know a gay person. That's a great defense for how you talk about them.

Yes. You're a troll because you only post in these threads to spread your bigotry.

Re: Revenge is mine, bitches

When my twin brother came out to my parents, my Dad (who is a dyed in the wool lefty from day one), asked him if he's tried to see if he could "switch back". I think it had more to do with his age (born in 1935) mixed with his naivete than with his lack of tolerance. Luckily that line of questioning never happened again.

Please show the gay people in your family your posts on this forum and gen ask them if they feel like you love them the same as the heterosexual people in your family.

You realize one of the reasons that homosexuality is "pushed and promoted" in the media, is because when young gay people see positive gay role models, they are less likely to kill themselves.

Not to mention the fact that it's not 'pushed or promoted' anyway. It's just not hidden anymore. The agenda is to treat people equally regardless of sexual orientation. That shouldn't be a problem for anyone.

I think you know that, when someone says that homosexuality is "pushed and promoted" by the media, he means homosexuality shown at all, or it's shown other than in a negative light. They miss the good old days when Mike Hammer can easily beat up muscular homosexuals because those pansies have no steel in their bones.

What you have is a problem with homosexuals being equal and accepted. Heterosexuality is "pushed and promoted" 24-7, where's the outrage?

The irony of people thinking that they are being oppressed just because someone else is gaining equal rights. Bunch of privileged crybabies.

Yes, and you prefer to post on basically one topic: homosexuality. I wonder what that means?

Just so you know – your gay relatives hate you.
