I don't want a pro-life mom-friend! I already have a good mother who embraces me and supports me 100% for the person I am—and she would never say *twinkles*!!
Also: "Being a heterosexual married to the same person for a lifetime is not easy." No, shit, really? I'm approaching my nine-year anniversary.
Can I get Casey Treat to be my pretend houseboy?
Ew, I want a shower too.
What the fuck? This is the reason I don't go to church, and think that organized religion is creepy as hell.
“We get just as lonely sexually as anyone else.”
Sounds like someone should be writing to Savage Love, not Horn.
Um, my mom (who had five kids) is pro-choice.
I think I'll listen to her, bitter pro-"life" mom ..., instead of you.
At least with her respecting people didn't end at birth.
The real scary part is that she thinks if gay marriage were made legal, the government would "force" her church to sanctify such marriages. If we could get these "moderate" Christians to realize how ludicrous this is, maybe we'd have a shot at some sane laws around here.
"If you are not Catholic or a Christian, we do not hold you to our same standards."
"But we only ask that our religion be allowed to flourish without government interference, just as Gay men and Lesbians want to be allowed to flourish without government interference in their life choices."
Apparently telling the truth isn't one of their standards.
The problem is many of them (hi mom) doesn't care if the church isn't forced to sanctify such marriages, they just go against their beliefs and therefore must be stopped.
It's pretty sad. Amy, will your parents adopt me?
So this guy is saying that gay marriage is only a problem if his church is forced to perform gay marriages. I don't think anyone has ever seriuosly suggested that that should happen. If gay marriage were made legal, it would only be the courts that would be forced to perform them.
So he's going to vote to legalize gay marriage, then?
Monkey, I doubt it--I am trying to talk them into a dog that needs a foster home to no avail.
My real mom is a pro-choice, liberal Easter/Christmas Eve Catholic and I love her to death despite all the religious ed. classes she bribed me into as a kid. (Happy Birthday, Mom!)
I can absolutely imagine what this creepy lady looks like when she *twinkles* and it makes me want to vomit.
Um, why would she be so concerned about The Stranger's circulation? Does she have some idea that Month of Sundays is going to drive readers away in droves? Has she actually read The Stranger?
If the government can't tax churches or make them comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act, why would they think that a law allowing gay marriage would make them perform the ceremony?
A Catholic couple can't wander into a synagogue and demand the rabbi perform a Catholic wedding. Churches always have a right to refuse service and can't be sued. It is such a stupid argument.
Oh Fuck, Hell, I think Churches should be forced at gun point to perform same sex marriages. And if they do not they should be shot!! I am feeling a little bit militant today!! GRRR!!!!
I am SO SICK of the whole lot of all the religious folks these days it just makes me puke. I have tried to be nice to them when they try to "save" my tight bottom boy ass but I just can not do it any more. It ended two weeks ago when the Mormon missionaries stopped at my door asking me if I wanted to hear about the message of Jesus Christ. I finally lost it; I told them no but I was interested in some hot three way action with them and are they interested in the joys of fisting? The ran off.....
*twinkles* is funnier than "Oh Hai!"
Imagine for a moment I was your son. I was conceived (by you and Dad - thanks!) and born into a country that treasured freedom of religion - meaning the government can't mandate that the church recognize or perform marriages that go against their religious beliefs. Imagine, in fact, that in this country churches are free to do pretty much anything they want as long as it isn't patently illegal (hello human sacrifice! *twinkle*).
What happened in the intervening years that convinced you things had changed? Why have you come to believe that the legal recognition of same-sex marriages would require your church to acknowledge, much less perform, same-sex marriages? Did Casey Treat steal your brain? Have you been using Ted Haggard's meth?
I loves you, Mom, but please stop acting like a retarded junior-high dropout about our constitution and it's relation to your church.
All my affection, Pro-Choice Straight Gay-Supportive Son
She's right. My secret desire to have a bunch of hostile penecostals forced to join my parter & I in holy matrimony. Maybe afterwards we'll honeymoon in Zimbabwe or Iran.
Dearest Amy Kate,
You are hot.
What if we want our government without religious interference?
Dylan! That's more like a letter I'd like to receive!
