You hat them, I thought hat was a noun.

But seriously, religious prejudice is one of the biggest excuses for hate. Don't most religions say "love all as god would"?. People like you are why I left the church.

I am not the church guy.
I am a masjid guy.

Masjid, church, temple, whatever, most religions harbor hate.

BOT: I understand that there may be a legitimate reason to keep out specific individuals, but disallowing an entire lifestyle group out of a public organization goes against basic rights. Religion is no reason to deny a person their basic rights, nor should it ever be.

gays have rights and according to the constitution all men are created equal, but apparently that only for all straight men

WEll that's enough reason for me.


Would a plain statement of hatred be reason enough for the people in blue text to take action against?

I don't care if you're "trolling" or not, but you're venturing onto very thin ice regardless. Opinions and arguments are one thing, any hate-posts are another, and they are not welcome here.

Of course there is a religious person here. -_-
If homosexuality is unnatural, why has it existed for the length of mankind? Another oversight of the supposedly all-knowing and all-wise God?

hey hey hey, not all religious people are close minded and hateful :P

also, i wonder how he would have taken it if they banned muslims from the boy scouts. this is a whole new level of hypocrisity (spelled wrong?)

Not to mention the fact that it exists in species other than homo sapiens. There is a whole list of animals that display homosexual behavior.... Maybe God just done goofed.

Good point.
You know, homophobia, not homosexuality, is a behavior that's exclusive to man. If people really want to call something "unnatural", they might want to take that into account.

Half the scouts in my troop were gay. But, I quit a couple years ago. I have other gay friends, but I honestly didn't like any of them, not because they were gay though
