Re: Frank Turek: "Nothing Gay About It"

You've been posting in the political forum long enough that you should know that hit and run posts, where you post a video or news story and don't comment on it, are not allowed here. Please provide some commentary and perhaps a summary so people don't have to watch all six parts just to be part of the conversation.

Does it matter? No one is going to watch the full hour, so no one will be commenting.

I Googled to see what some of the talking points were. Stuff like "If everyone got gay married, no one would have kids."

Re: Frank Turek: "Nothing Gay About It"

All the parts together make up around one hour, so its hardly a burden to sit through it.

It does not matter if it's a burden. You cannot make hit and run posts in the political forum. Please edit your post with commentary and, if you please, a summary. If it's an hour long it's hardly a burden to summarize.

Re: Frank Turek: "Nothing Gay About It"

The entire premise "same sex marriage hurts other groups" is silliness on a grand scale.

You can find "hurt" to other groups in absolutely anything. Including opposite sex marriage.

I can think of another post that's going to be ignored.

I am locking this thread for the reasons stated by Supermallet. If you want to summarize the video and give your own opinions on it in the OP, PM me and I'll reopen if appropriate.
