    Impossible for it to be a disease because it is not something medically induced on a person... at least you somewhat respect them

    No, I don't respect them for their queerness, but I have met a couple in my trade that I respected their work. As long as it isn't in my house I simply don't care what they do.

    So...you're saying you respect people like me as long as our "queerness" isn't in front of you?

    As citizens Gays have all the same rights as everyone else, there is no need to provide "special" rights for them.

    Marriage is between a man and a woman. Get the Government out of Marriage, call everything the Government licenses and makes laws for a " Domestic Partnership" or some such. Leave Marriage to the religions.

    I agree that government should stay out of gay marriage, but feel that if they HAVE to be involved with it, why not make it nationally legal for gays to get married instead of a state-by-state basis? I agree with you though, focus on "Domestic Partnership" laws/ideas.

    Just in my own castle, that's all I can control, and I've been blessed that it hasn't infected my family, yet.
    I've worked alongside without issue many times, and socially I just don't see many in my circles.

    I am tired of the " in your face" activities of gays in General.

    Except for Marde Gra care to name a place that has a sexual parade with naked men and women fornicating and sexually grab assing?

    I do NOT want to see sexual kissing be it a man and a woman or 2 people of the same sex. I do not want to see sexual grab ass by anyone either. It is unacceptable behavior in public spaces. As is nudity and sex in parks.

    I don't want children exposed to condoms or other left overs from sex in their parks or play areas. And generally speaking those things are left by gays predominately ( males to be specific).

    You want sex? Do it in a private place. Do not do it in a public place. It is not any of my business what you do with another consenting adult in private. It most assuredly IS my business what you do in PUBLIC spaces and areas.

    I wouldn't disown my cousins or my friends for it.
    But I wouldn't go to a gay parade either.
