41 Comments on “Have Gay Rights Advanced in the 40 Years Since Stonewall?”

  1. Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an
    abomination. Romans 1:26-27 For this reason God gave them up to
    dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for
    those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural
    relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men
    committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due
    penalty for their error. Lulu.com/spotlight/helenohenzo

  2. Why DO you keep removing your comments, marsCubed? It’s almost like a
    “Youtube stutter” or something. Why don’t you remove the asinine comment
    below about ME being “fascist,” even though I’m the opposite, as an
    individualist? You may as well remove them all, for that matter. I’m sure
    you’ve got a copyright on at least two of these sound bites. Probably don’t
    want them stolen.

  3. nobody needs to believe what I do, how that is impossible, I don’t know,
    but we all must live according to nature laws and decency standard because
    we all live in same planet, what you do may affect others specially kids
    directly and indirectly. Gay has no space in a sane and decent place; it is
    about time we deal drastically with this epidemic WE MUST ASSUME PAST
    METHOD TO DEAL WITH HOMOS in Arabic world and Africa they already started
    doing something about this shameful disease and action

  4. I believe in equal rights for LGBT individuals. But hate crimes are thought
    crimes. It is Orwellian. Murder is murder and harassment is harassment, and
    should be illegal regardless of the motivation. And congress always lags
    public opinion. It is public opinion that has undergone a revolution. Vast
    swaths of society view homophobia as just as bad as racism (as it should
    be.) But congress never leads. It only follows in order to get re-elected.
    Real change comes from the people.

  5. Ha ha. That was a “rational” argument? You just wanted to show off your
    Tourette’s syndrome, didn’t you?

  6. Norway or Sweden, have the highest taxes in the world. As a result they are
    the most equal societies. they have the wealthiest populations, many Swedes
    have 2 homes. They are the best educated, healthiest, lowest crime, best
    qality of life. educated people are more flexible economically and
    difficult to push around. You are the far right. You push for an agenda
    almost identical to the NAZIS, pro corp rural morons who saw themselves as
    liberators too. wake up, they make you follow evil trash.

  7. WOW. You continuously quote Romans and Leviticus as if you site a
    legitimate source and not just 2000 year of desert scribblings. Leviticus
    Ay? Have you ever, talked back to your parents, worn clothing made from 2
    clothes, eaten Shell fish or Pork. If so, then in Gods eyes you are an
    Abomination! Maybe if you really cared, you would judge yourself by the
    same standards you judge other. So feel free to drag yourself to the edge
    of town and stone yourself to death. Remember, Leviticus says to!

  8. You’ve mis-defined “capitalism” for a selfish reason. Why don’t you just
    rob people at gunpoint? It’s more honest, and, quite frankly, less
    cowardly, than having someone else do it for you.

  9. I told someone I was gay at college now most of the tutors look on the
    floor when I smile or say hi to them. It makes me upset but I’m not
    changing for anyone.

  10. Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them
    have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their
    blood is upon them. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do not be deceived: neither the
    sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice
    homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers,
    nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

  11. You are considered far-right and nuts even by libertarians everywhere else.
    An innocent, badly misled for you mean well. It is because you know nothing
    else except cold war dogma, this reinforced with what seem like revealed
    secrets. an easy solution. conditioning was purposeful, a backstop.. Bush
    harmed the USA very deeply IMO. Legalize drugs, knock yourself out. The
    Great USA run by the free beer party set to damage allies and nature. Here
    is an idea; why not ban traffic lights too? disgrace.

  12. it’s a logical inference as to why the politicos on the right are so
    against it. If government is able to collect less taxes due to the benefits
    of marriage and corporations are suddenly required to provide more group
    coverage for an expanded group, they’ll have to charge more. I did NOT say
    I advocate this view. In fact, I’m against the government telling anyone
    what to do with their private lives.

  13. caltrop69, Consider that Alex Jones led the anti war movement into
    obscurity. then into the hands of the far right. Jewish banking conspiracy?
    Attacking international relations? pro inequality? The right are the
    authoritarians. They want ‘freedom’ to for corps to rule without democracy
    or account. That is not freedom. If the USA had the same tax as Europe,
    average Americans would be 11,000$ better off. Corps get you to fight for
    inequality, not balance, look up the ‘reactionary’ aka fascism.

  14. Are you a transgendered or are you coming against the gay movement? Was
    hard to follow. Thanks.

  15. I am not making anything up. High taxes means taxing the rich not the
    regular middle class working citizen. The corps take a money out of the
    system as bonuses. It is vast sums of money, this is not going around and
    is all at the top. If you tax the rich then it goes back into society as
    new businesses, welfare (jobs), education (jobs) and it takes the burden
    off the middle class. It is win win, only the wingnuts on the right are
    trying to pull it down in the USA. they are pro nastiest corps.

  16. You are simply making things up, at this point. You first claim that if we
    adopt a European structure, then we’d save money. Then you turn around and
    say that a couple of European countries have the highest taxes in the
    world. Then you whip out the old strawman and call me “the far right.” Do
    you even know what that means? I’m not even remotely authoritarian, and
    there was nothing in my post that could lead a reasonable person to that
    conclusion.

  17. The far right uses capitalism as a political crutch. They understand it as
    a means by which they can reward those who bought them power. True
    capitalism does not require the use of government to destroy competitors.
    True capitalism involves trust in your fellow human being. A transaction by
    which both parties benefit is not EVIL. If you may think people acting
    peacefully amongst each other is vile, then carry on trying to control
    people.

  18. You pretend to not understand and then show bias? THIS…I do not
    understand. A “progressive” party has become synonymous with the idea of
    large government and control of behavior. The question really should be,
    “why do you want a government that is able to control behavior?” What
    happens when those who control the government want to control YOUR
    BEHAVIOR? Don’t doubt that they’ll take advantage of the power you’ve
    handed them.

  19. God wants to come into your heart and transform you WE CANNOT GET USE TO
    SIN I can be a liar but if I do not lie God has no problem with me THE
    PROBLEM IS ACTION God does not blame you for uncontrolled mental thoughts
    but will blame you for physical action Lulu.com/spotlight/helenohenzo

  20. Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an
    abomination. Romans 1:26-27 For this reason God gave them up to
    dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for
    those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural
    relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men
    committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due
    penalty for their error. Lulu.com/spotlight/helenohenzo

  21. “Coward!” Stand up to the “TERRORISTS!” It’s no time to “cut and run.” Help
    me out, here…They had almost as many good bumper stickers as you. You are
    the result of too much LSD, I think. Not that I’d mind LSD being completely
    legal, or anything…Just saying that I think insane people, like you, are
    cool. I want all drugs legal.

  22. OK…You’ve degenerated into to bumper sticker slogans, again. Try to
    develop a coherent thought and get back to me.

  23. The question is not if you born gay or not, the question is, should gay
    people marry each other and be in a relationship? of course not, at least
    not in a sane world JUST STAY SINGLE NOBODY WILL HAVE PROBLEM WITH YOU and
    watch the way you walk and put those hands down IF YOU GUYS CONTINUE ON
    THIS SHAMEFUL PATH we must take drastic action.

  24. caltrop69, see if any of this rings a bell. Jewish banking conspiracy.
    Unions should be broken, state organizations should only be army and police
    (try asking for civil rights there) How’s about anti gay, or schools,
    hospital, run by and owned by your boss. if he don’t like you… no taxes
    see.. you work for da man, ask da man rights.. it is a boss charter, the
    worst kind of society. Everywhere this kind of Laissez fair stuff has been
    tried, it is called fascism. in the USA morons say it is them

  25. I could absolutely get behind a party based on rationalism and the
    scientific method. The progressives, unfortunately, don’t fit the bill.
    They completely ignore the objective fact that some of their ideas are
    neither new, nor have they succeeded, when tried. They ignore the science
    of economics. This causes them to come to poor conclusions. The value of a
    widget that involves 12 labor hours to produce is ZERO, if no one else
    wants it. BASIC.

  26. I came out more than 30 years ago when gay bars didn’t have windows and 99%
    of gays were frightened in their closets. Bashings were common and you
    wouldn’t dare call the police for fear that they would out you. I never
    dreamed that I would ever have straight male friends. Today I no longer
    walk in fear and I am socially accepted in many circles. Most people think
    it’s wrong to kill gays – that’s huge progress. Yes there is still work to
    be done but to say nothing has changed is crazy.

  27. in God there is no such thing as gay but man and woman, if you feel
    attraction to a tree, another man, animal, kid, and relatives (sins)
    instead trying to get help and you decided to accept and cultivate it, then
    you expect God to always understand. What do you take God for? IF YOU HAVE
    NO ATTRACTION FOR OPPOSITE SEX stay single like Paul stayed THIS LIFE WAS
    MEANT TO BE A TEST not for us to have as first priority, search for love –
    STOP KILLING YOU SPIRIT WITH YOUR PHYSICAL ACTION

  28. In case this needs clarification: GAYS need no PERMISSION for rights from
    the government. The GOVERNMENT needs permission for powers..

  29. If they are actually justifying the denial of rights to a select group of
    people on the basis of cost, then they are immoral. If the benefits of
    marriage are such a burdensome expense, then those benefits for all should
    be reined in. You don’t arbitrarily choose groups of people to exclude. The
    religious right claims moral superiority and they are the most immoral and
    hypocritical collection of assholes that I have run across.

  30. Yeah…The problem is they think the government is something that can
    “grant” them. The government can only remove rights.
