Say what?

Quote from anti-gay marriage blogger OnLawn:
"Homosexuals and Heterosexuals are not that unalike, there is a lot of room to understand each other's issues. The reason I am worried about the current homosexual dogma is that these issues for them are excuses to not show love and commitment."

Oh! So that's why gay people are fighting so hard to get married!

Who'd'a thunk?!

Hey girl,

Well, the fact that the gays have not risen up to retaliate against the intolerant straight homophobes is also proof that gays have no compassion for their fellow man...

Sheesh. Do you look for the most stupid things you can find out there?

In my opinion, most people who hate gays are gay, but that's a slam against gay people.

I always wondered, and still wonder, who in the hell cares? I don't care if your gay or you have to hang up in the closet by your heels to get off. Straight people are just as weird and often much more violent about it than any gay person would be.

Oh, yeah, if you can rape a woman that must mean, ugh, that you can love her?

Oh, don't get me started, I'll blow a fuse. This is just disgusting.

hugs
me

Deep breath. Inhale, exhale.

and, laugh.

What else can you do?

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
Beloved's.
