"From one day to the next you can have the best life, and at any point it can be taken away," he told me, "just on the fact that you're gay."
I for one will never, ever, set foot in a state so full of intolerance.
CNN columnist John Sutter says the lack of legal protection pushes people back into the closet.
"No one cares what you know, until they know how much you care." Mark Dantonio
They do have great laws preventing any restrictions on food though.
Ever hear of the 14th Amendment?????
Change gay to black and 2003 to 1953 and you'd have the same argument. It's okay to admit you're a bigot though.
The thing I hate most about gays is that they're people just like everybody else. I hate people.
This 12 year old is already ten million times a better person than you.
Matthew Lannon, 12, stole the show at last nights 12-hour hearing VIDEO
fishy/msu2's homophobia is showing again. It must be difficult living in fear of the "other" all the time.
Upon further reflection, I have decided that since firing someone because they are gay is okay with the connies on this board, that I will follow that example and fire all the christians that do work for me managing my website. I'm sure the connies will support my decision.

wow........that you should be a post worth you being banned for awhile........
Fish head crowing about "state's rights"
They call him Big Bossman at work too?
Ah....the last resort of the intellectually over matched...
You're a bigot. Its pretty obvious. I've reported your post. I hope you are banned for a year.
If you had used a vote about getting rid of Jim Crow laws in Mississippi in the 50's and 60's, the results would've been similar as well. Using your logic, Mississippi should've never integrated.
86% of the state supports firing someone for being gay?
Again, you do realize that's a violation of the 14th Amendment and probably the Civil Rights Act as well don't you?
That doesn't justify it even one bit. You're a bigot who's justifying bigotry. End of story.
Fishy the frightened white guy who is so afraid of the future he longs for the past.
I didn't say you were a bad guy....just unable to compete in this particular battle of wits.
In our legal system the majority opinion is irrelevant when it comes to civil rights.
I suspect that you will come to understand this as legal cases progress through the system, perhaps as early as June when the SCOTUS rules on DOMA and CA Prop 8?
Being gay is not a choice.
Read, learn, attempt to become a more tolerant and kind person. What have you got to lose?
I'm curious Fish....when did you "decide" to be heterosexual?
I never had a decision to make, my body reacts to women, and does not react to men.
Your missing my point....for me there was no decision to make.
I have no urge to engage in homosexual behavior.
I could no sooner "choose" to have an erection watching a naked guy, than I could "choose" to fly.
Your belief that homosexuality is a choice implies that you could choose to become sexually aroused watching males, but elect not to.
First Amendment allows Fishyx2 to continue expressing his uncommon stupidity and inanity. Truth is, the more people like him open their mouths, the more the rest of the world shifts away from the bigotry he spouts.
No, don't fire them,but it's OK to accuse all of them of being child molesters.
The self-righteousness of liberals regarding gay rights wouldn't appear quite so hypocritcal if you didn't spend so much time bashing Christians.
'Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable'
- President John F. Kennedy
Sorry, but I must follow the same pattern as you homophobes. If being gay makes a worker unfit, then being a christian does too.
And exposing the truth isn't bashing.
That's the difference between you and me: I believe in live and let live, whether one be Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jew, gay,straight, black, white, yellow, red or of mixed race. You, for some reason which is your own, carry a streak of anger against anyone who disagrees with you on anything.
May this holy season of Lent help us to bridge our differences...
