    It's funny when I hear liberals call Christian conservatives anti-gay and homophobic. Christian conservatives don't really give a shit about gays. That's not the same as being anti-gay. The only thing they're doing regarding the gay community in this country is opposing gay marriage, and since most states have had a chance to vote on the issue, I don't think you get to call being anti-gay-marriage a specifically "Christian" sentiment. It's general sentiment.

    But the actual point is, for all the whining liberals do about homophobia, they don't actually do anything for the gay community, except maybe get angry on their behalf. They're not threatening to switch party affiliation, withhold donations, nor are they particularly organized to force Congress to enact gay-friendly laws. Liberals only care about gay people as a catalyst for their hatred of religion and Republicans.

    I don't want any group, political or religious, to "care" in my bedroom.

    Just stay the fuck out unless invited.

    And I will extend the same courtesy to you too.

    I know some gays that are really great people. I also know some that are assholes. Just like non-gays.

    Their "gayness" does not define them. Go figure.

    Liberals don't care for anything but their agenda. Not much different than any other people sadly.

    I spoke with someone who works for a major bank and they have now formed a LGBT focus group to brainstorm ways to expand that market.

    Do gays have different banking needs than non-gays? Defies logic to me.

    I think gays are comparatively well off financially, therefore it makes economic sense to market to them. The bank can disguise their self-interest as crusading for equal rights and access for sexual minorities. It's a win win for them.

    Oh. I didn't think of that. So their focus might be on politics, not banking services? The slippery slope she mentioned is identifying those employees selected for the focus group. Some non-gays (and probably some gays too) have gotten pissed off that they were selected, when the bank should not have known their orientation in the first place.

    I care about citizens' rights.

    Gays are citizens.
