“The article's author seemed to be trying so hard to fit in every masturbation pun he could that it completely detracted from his story. If you want to be thought of as a professional act like a journalist, not a commenter.”

“Get a grip...sorry, but I couldn't resist. The guy got handed (oops) a story to write about that rubbed (oops) him the wrong way. This was a jacked (oops) up assignment, and he found it hard (oops) to be serious. He had to do a lot of research (since age 11), and had stiff (oops) completion to get to press. I'm sure his next story will stand up (oops) to scrutiny. If you don't mind I'm going to get off (oops) here. Lighten up, and take a load (oops) off.”
“Of course you're allowed to form your own opinions - no one is saying you shouldn't. One of the nice things about living in the US is that anyone can have any dumb, ignorant, back-water belief they want and they're perfectly allowed to express it.
Oh, and just so you know, if heterosexuals were forced to have only civil unions then they would be crying for marriage equality louder than anyone. Why? Because civil unions give about 1,100 less rights than marriages do. That's why homosexuals are fighting for the right to marry. Not just for the word, but because it confers over one thousand rights that they currently don't receive.”
“Sorry, prejudice is a preconceived notion not based on facts or reason. Anecdotal testimony tends to lead to prejudice when taken all on its own - usually by those who already believe something anyway and are willing to do whatever it takes to justify their already-established opinions.
And while we're talking about definitions, conservatives hate to hear the words racist and bigot, even when they fit the very definition of the words. From what Iv'e seen of your posts so far, it seems they both fit you fairly well.”
“They call that "prejudice" - judging an entire group of people by the actions of a relative few. At least now we know where you stand.
Funny you never mentioned the fact that whites beat out all other races in plenty of other criminal and shameful behaviors/categories.”

“No, prejudice is judging an individual based on the group. Making observations about a group as a whole, if supported by facts, is not.”
“Yes yes, it's all about you. You would think that.
"The only reason they want equal treatment is to make us angry!" Forgetting, of course, that they shouldn't have to fight for equality in the first place. I mean seriously, what kind of American feels cheated when other Americans celebrate that they're finally getting equal treatment?”
“That's a very biblical definition of marriage - being able to marry anyone you want, as many people as you want, whether they are consenting or not. Which explains why even to this day so many conservative states allow incestual marriage.
Those of us who love American ideals agree that consenting adults should be able to marry if they want. What kind of genitalia they have shouldn't really matter.”

“And if you don't believe in the Bible then you probably already have given gay marriage thumbs up. This all comes back to religion. Ugh.”
“Not the former one, the present one. The former one was full of racists, bigots, and misogynists. Aren't you glad we don't live in the former US anymore? The current one is much more in-line with American ideals.”
