Prove your god exists and that he wrote your holy book. Until you do you're just as full of shit as any other pontificating religious fundie and we can ignore you. The laws of this nation aren't based on any holy book, they're based on the Constitution which is a secular document.
As for the "Laws of Nature", it may have escaped your notice but there are literally hundreds of animal species that practice same-sex. So homosexuality is natural by definition.

I think this video adequately portrays how Christian bullies act when their LGBT victims stand up for themselves

i banged my head so hard i need a new wall... why oh why do these guys keep on preaching hate?
@Freethinker and Rizzo: go easy on each other, let's remember that posts like these represent the american vocal minority... here in france, we think americans are just fat... and shallow, but the french are chauvinist like that.

Actually, they can. They really can. Rights aren't a limited resource, if we give gay people the right to marry gay people, straight people don't loose the right to marry straight people.

And here in America people think the French are cheese-eating surrender monkeys, so there is ill will all around. I think the whole concept of playing stereotypes up for humor is utterly overrated and leads to nothing but flame wars...

This tyranny of rights, this tyranny of the minority
Hardcore fundamentalist Christians are a minority group.
Indeed, take away their rights. Force them to shut the fuck up. Lock up their churches. Forbid them to assemble. Burn their KJV Bibles. Block them off the internet. Send their kids to public schools.
Oh wait, that's not what you meant? You mean only the "other" minorities shouldn't have any rights?

Go eat another cheesecake, fat ass.

I am a Catholic and agreed to be married according to the rules of the church.
None of these idiots have ever explained how allowing gay marriage hurts my marriage.
Because it doesn't?

Matt Barber is so bat-shit crazy that I have no idea what to write here. Absolutely nothing in this post is coherent or truthful. It's nothing but a long string of buzzwords and dog-whistles.
I almost feel sorry for people who's brains operate this way. It's like they haven't had a single original thought their entire lives.

... we defend the Constitution.
What constitution would that be?
5/7/2012 1:26:21 PM
Someone please tell me how a minority can tyrannize a majority? Allowing everyone to have the same rights is not taking away anyone's rights. That, and the Constitution doesn't allow anyone the right to persecute others.

It may not be some holy writ, but it IS the "law of the land," as it were. The US Constitution and its amendments are federal law. Even the government itself is bound to uphold it.

By the time I read 'tyranny of rights', I started laughing. The rest of the post just built on that comedic foundation, culminating in rolling, roaring belly-laughs. I don't care whether or not this is a Poe, because that laugh-break was just what I needed. Thank you, Matt Barber, for that glorious ejaculation of absurdity- it honestly came off like a Monty Python political-rant sketch.
@Brendan Rizzo: We're not as secular here in Canada as we should be, but we're presently in the works of prying our current right-wing-nutjob PM out of office, so progress is being made. We still, as we always have, welcome any and all of our Southern neighbours who grow tired of their country's horseshit. (We merely ask that you be patient with ours.)

Freedom of association? I must have missed that one.
I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how allowing gays rights interferes with freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
One could have made a similar argument about racial equality and, as a matter of fact, I seem to recall that some did.

I think the "argument" Matt Barber and his compatriots are trying to make is that gay rights is eventually going to make it illegal to say that being gay is wrong or that God hates it. Considering that it's still legal to belong to the freaking KKK, I somehow don't think he has anything to worry about.
5/7/2012 5:09:48 PM
Mhhh, now where is my Ranch for this word salad?
5/7/2012 9:07:31 PM
This raging stream of idiocy is a pathetic, laughable joke. The funny part is that it isn't a joke at all, and there are plenty of people who think this is true.
5/7/2012 9:41:02 PM
Tyranny of the minority? Uh, no. You want tyranny of the majority. You know, what the Constitution prevents. Also, the Constitution says absolutely jack squat about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, etc. How do you claim to defend a document you haven't even read or either read a fundie forgery and claimed it was the real thing.
5/8/2012 4:19:09 AM
I think you're a little confused here Matt. You seem to believe this nation's principles of freedom of speech, press, etc. only apply to you and those who think like you, and that the 'god' mentioned in the Constitution is one that holds only all of your own prejudices and values. Even more delusional, you think gays fighting for respect and dignity conflict with Constitutional values when you clearly want a theocracy where gay rights are gradually limited and gays themselves treated more and more like second class citizens.
Um, yeah. Let's get back to that 'bully' thing you oh so eloquently mentioned...
5/8/2012 7:18:30 AM
I like the implications that racial minorities somehow have a tyranny.

Well Matty boy that argument is great for stirring up a crowd and getting in donations, but I somehow doubt it would stand up in a court of law.
5/8/2012 1:02:41 PM
That word does not mean what you think it does.

Fundies Make Me Sick
Matt, cry me a river. Homosexuals are human beings deserving of the same dignity and respect as everyone else. The only ones violating rights are you and your ilk to homosexuals.
5/9/2012 10:19:40 AM
Countries with national Christian churches don't buy this bullshit you're selling.
God did not write the Constitution of the United States of America.
You are only defending your ignorance and stupidity.
5/9/2012 6:25:06 PM
Then there are those who define their identity based on believing in idiotic bullshit.
