    The reason I won't see this movie? Richard Dryfus' character is Gay. Yup. Petty? Not so much; I'm just burned out on having to endure a Gay Character in most EVERY MOVIE or SHOW currently out. For the LOVE of God - if Hollywood was right, Homosexuals would make up 50% of the population.

    (sigh).

    The article link was kinda unnecessary to the point you were making, no? It seems like you sort of trying to overcompensate so this thread would be more than just you reminding us you don't like gay people. :dunno:

    My point was: Poseidon didn't have a good opening.

    My commentary was: The reason Darin won't see the movie.

    Yeah, I immediately regretted wording my post the way I did. It came across as confrontational, wasn't meant to be.

    We must agree to disagree and shrug. :huh: :huh:

    Sure - but what are we agreeing to disagree upon? We agree the movie fizzled? We disagree as to what? the reason I won't see the movie? I confess I'm taken aback by your accusation that I hate gay people. I found that uncalled for.

    Again, worded wrong. But, yeah, judging by a vast majority of your comments, I would say that you hate gay people. Not meant to belittle you or anything, that's just the impression I get. The reason we need to agree to disagree is that I know that a lot of the reason you have these feelings comes from religious beliefs, and history has proven that it is more or less impossible to make someone think differently when the basis of their beliefs come from religion. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to edit my original post.

    You haven't read all my posts then; and are judging me on only a few. In MOST gay threads here I explain my very close friendship with two gay men in particular - I served with them on Active Duty. I'm a little upset I haven't been clear enough on my position. Therefore, for the record. I love people, in general. I hate people promoting their agenda and their views upon the masses. I hate people asking for their behaviour to be excused because they are somehow victimized by genetics. I don't support homophile agendas. Has nothing to do w/ 'people'.

    I agree 100%. I very rarely read the top half of the board, which is probably where you talk more about the topic.

    In MOST gay threads here I explain my very close friendship with two gay men in particular - I served with them on Active Duty.

    Just because i don't know doesn't mean you haven't been clear enough. And don't think I'm trying to trash you or whatever, because I'm not.

    Fag.:p just kiddin.

    See, this doesn't make any sense to me at all. You like gay people, you're just against everything they stand for?

    Did you tell the two gay guys that you were friends with that you hate the very idea that their lifestyle is not a conscious choice?

    Yes - they knew very well where I stood. As you can probably imagine back in the early 90s there existed NO recourse for homosexual acts on while in the Military. (still that way to a pretty large extent). In spite of the difference they had with me, we were close enough to share that kinda shit. :) Both accepted their behaviour as a conscious choice. They both felt a sense of addiction; but took responsibility for acting upon that desire.
