also in response to the commercial saying a school is teaching about gay marriage. GOOD that should be happening. let children know that if they ARE gay then thats ok too, theyre still equal people. if things like that arent taught to children we'll end up with another generation of hateful discriminating people like there is today.

people in this country need to stop worrying about other people. gay people being able to get married does not affect anyone but themselves and anyone who feels that it would be impacting their life needs to move on and realize that there are far more important things to worry about than two people who are in love being able to be married.

I was thinking: rewind a few decades, and let's replace "same-sex marriage" with "interracial marriage." The rhetoric then was pretty much the same. Anti-integrationists established private schools to keep their kids away from public schools that taught "immoral" doctrine of co-mingling races. Now back to the first decade of the 21st century: we laugh at those who still support racial segregation as fossils, while our civilization had not yet collapsed into stone age. What really bothers me about this commercial though is their use of "rainbow coalition" -- I think Jesse Jackson is angry.

One of us is either clueless or possibly even delusional. I will leave that up to those that read the entire blog to make that judgement.

Sorry G'pa, but you're clearly not stupid and you pretty clearly know what you're saying at all times. If you honestly don't see an insult, it must be second nature to you.

Steph, let me repeat " I am completely flummoxed, how exactly were you insulted?" Just copy and paste the exact insult.

She wasn't insulted Grandpa, she just doesn't have the right words to respond to your intelligent comment. You obviously said nothing that could be misconstrued.

"Steph, I do not have Jewish or Muslim family members, not yet anyway. My family have Jewish and Muslim friends. I would suggest that every act, look, or word thrown your way is an act of discrimination. There are folks who are anti social, having a bad day, or just don't like you. Itis all part of life."I love the way you regularly admonish other people here to be civil, but when you have no valid response, you turn to insults.

No, I was referring to YOU standing on YOUR own two feet. Your female, black, Asian, Latino, gay, Jewish or Muslim family members don't come into it - except as examples of people who will likely experience far more discrimination than you. Without legal actions to enforce the laws of this nation, they would very likely spend more time than you saying FU to businesses, schools, doctors, photographers etc. that don't want their business and looking from place to place from people who deem them worthy of acceptance.

Steph what are you implying with "oh wait, you're a hetrosexual, white male in the United States." I guess that precludes me from having women, blacks, Asians, Latinos, gays, Jews Christians,or Muslims as friends or even :gasp: members of my immediate family.

And what the heck, while you're saying FU and taking your own two feet from business to business trying to find someone to accept you - oh wait, you're a hetrosexual, white male in the United States. Never mind.
