  1. Nice work organizing the sheriffs to fight against the “homosexuals shoving their agenda down your throat,” always a cute choice of words. But for God’s sake, you taught in the theater department, you surely must have run into gay people. Do they have no rights? Are they supposed to just keep quiet so you can shove your religious bigotry down our throats? Well, guess what – they’re not going to keep quiet. You’re nothing but an old timey religious fanatic who thinks she has power. You don’t. You will lose, basically, all of your battles. 

    1. Marriage is historically a union of one man and one woman for the the procreation of the next generation, raising and educating their offsprings
      When butt-f—-ng has the same result, we can talk again about your life style is equivalent to Marriage.
      Until then,  you have no valid argument here

    2. Private behavior should be kept prilvate. But the homosexual agenda is to make same sex behavior public and teach it in the schools and make everybody like it through legislation which in this state (Washington) now tells me that my marriage is the same as a homosexual one (domestic partnership) “such terms as husband and wife under the law shall be gender neutral”.
      But even though the behavior is being pushed upon us all, its consequences are being hidden. There are over 8 venereal diseases not the least of which is AIDS caused by same sex relations, which in men, costs as much as 20 years off their life.
      Finally it is pretty common knowledge that a large percentage of men involved in same sex relations would like to exit the same. Our desire is to help them.
      And our desire is to not have the law force us to support that behavior and it does in Washington.

  2. I recently earned a degree in Family Studies. It is refreshing to see someone else with my own opinion concerning families and children. After spending the past 13 years researching parenting practices, homosexual parenting, and the importance of a mom and dad in the lives of children it makes me sick to see what is happening to children for the sake of diversity/tolerance. Ideally every child should have a mother and father.
