    Politics at its finest. Any wonder these folks rank with child molesters?

    No wonder good, honest men and women don’t want to be politicians.

    ^ Troll who obviously doesn’t mean what he says. Nobody honestly believes that Toles doesn’t criticize Democrats. And even if they do believe it, their beliefs can be quickly refuted by merely looking through his archives right here.

    “No Our Kids do not need to see that.”

    • Instead our kids should be listening to the Westboro Baptist Church? Their kids do. They’re indoctrinated, but I guess that’s acceptable. Oh, and getting indoctrinated into clinic bombing must be acceptable, too. Y’know, since fringe elements represent the whole, like gay prides do of the gays.

    Hey Teapublicans, next time you wonder why people think your party is full of bigots, homophobes and loons, take a look at who you nominate.

    Oh, and thanks by the way.

    Don’t tuck any money in his shorts and maybe he’ll go away.

    I wonder how many of the people who find gay pride parades not to be ‘child friendly’ take, or would take, their children to a Hooters’ restaurant. It is, after all, a “family restaurant.”

    I’d love to see some statistics on this.

    You guys are all so nuts, and you can’t even see it. Regardless of how inelegantly Paladino might have stated his beliefs, his are those of the vast majority of Americans and completely in line with traditional Biblical values. The Westboro Baptist Church, Jade? Hooters? They have nothing to do with what he was asked….and I believe he even politely made a point to iterate that he does not condemn gays as a group of people! He stated the TRUTH, that it is not a lifestyle that should be presented as equally viable with heterosexuality, and that many of the proponents of the lifestyle are wildly over the top (the parades are always obscene). He probably doesn’t even think about gays much at all. He just gave his honest opinion to the question, and his is in line with a good 60% of Americans.

    HabaneroBuck, where did you get this so-called “truth?” I’m a psychologist, and I read the literature, and it seems quite clear that homosexuality is not a lifestyle – it is life. For whatever reason, some people are homosexual. It is not learned, it is what they are, just the way you are (presumably) heterosexual. Therefore, if you say that homosexuality is sinful or wrong, you are, in fact, condemning a group of people for no reason they can control, reasons which may be genetic. You know what they call people who do that… I don’t take my kids to those parades, either. But it’s not like straight people don’t indulge in perverse activities – I mean, you are on the Internet, aren’t you? It’s not hard to find! And by the way, your numbers are backwards. Most Americans favor gays getting married, and a higher number still are unfazed by gays enough that 75% of Americans favor eliminating Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell – and that’s about 70% of Republicans as well as 80% of Democrats. Chew on that for a while.

    I don’t agree, motive. 31 states have had votes on gay marriage, and every time it has been defeated. I agree that the majority of Americans are accepting of the rights of individuals to live their lives as they choose, but that doesn’t mean they support redefining “marriage” to allow for something called gay marriage.

    I’ve never heard a good argument in favor of just accepting “gay” as genetic and unalterable. A propensity? Perhaps. But the question I have for gay males is quite simple…why do you not desire the companionship of a female, who is perfectly configured to meet your every physical requirement SO MUCH better than another man? I’ve actually asked a couple gay guys this question, and I’ve never gotten a satisfactory answer. I just feel there is an underlying psychological defect in the gay personality, and the more that this lifestyle is celebrated, the more chaotic our future generations will be.

    And, yes, ultimately the authority for this truth is the Bible, and I do not doubt that the erosion of America’s Biblical foundation will inevitably lead to further legitimization of the homosexual agenda.

    “and that many of the proponents of the lifestyle are wildly over the top (the parades are always obscene).” “in line with traditional Biblical values. The Westboro Baptist Church, Jade?”

    • You will see that with your two sentences I have shown how you have contradicted your own position.

    “his are those of the vast majority of Americans … completely in line with traditional Biblical values.”

    • I think you and the “vast majority of Americans” haven’t read your Bibles in a while. One of the facets of the American dream is wealth. Wealth is condemned in the Bible, moreso than homosexuality. Lack of concern for your fellow man, a tenet of Libertarianism, is also not in keeping with “traditional Biblical values.” Divorce is also not in keeping with traditional Biblical values– did you know a man is supposed to marry his brother’s wife if she fails to give him a child?
    • I highly suggest not cherry-picking one portion of a sentence of condemnation and then stating that prejudice based on adherence to one sentence is considered being “in line with traditional Biblical values.”

    “Therefore, if you say that homosexuality is sinful or wrong, you are, in fact, condemning a group of people for no reason they can control, reasons which may be genetic”

    • Yep, traditional Biblical values mark Black people as sinful.

      The “curse of Ham” had been used by some members of Abrahamic religions to justify racism and the enslavement of people of Black African ancestry, who were believed to be descendants of Ham.[2][3] They were often called Hamites and were believed to have descended through Canaan or his older brothers. Proponents of slavery in the US increasingly invoked the ‘curse of Ham’ in the US during the 19th century, as a response to the growing abolitionist movement.[4] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse_of_Ham

    And let us not forget that sex is used to sell the vast majority of items in the country. The most obscene members of gay pride parades are no more obscene than the average porn magazine or Playboy mansion and their attendance is voluntary.
