On the Day of Silence and Gay Rights

Edit: Me and the person in question have discussed and debated a while. I don't go back on what I said, but I don't intend to sound so horrible and cruel to NarutoActor. However, I will not edit what I wrote, because the majority of it is true.

In totally I made 11 people break there row, shows how serious they where about that.
^ It's posts like these that make me seriously understand how seriously freaking stupid people are. And I was wrong. I underestimated them, extremely. I want to reply to that idiot's(sorry, he's already out-rightly insulted my religion as well) quote with another quote from a much more intelligent person, BlueHighwind:

Quote:
I honestly cannot understand any sort of logical argument against same-sex marriage. In all disputes, I try to follow Atticus Finch's sage wisdom of "seeing both sides" but here I simply cannot wrap my head around the opposition's logic. Instead, all I see is an emotion: fear. Fear that the "gays" will get to marry and have families just like us. And even worse, such fears point further down into naked horrible intolerance of another group of human beings. Yes, there are many religious argument against same-sex marriage, but religion should never be any sort of justification for political policy. That right there is against every single political tradition we have in this country. George Washington may have been horrified by watching two men kiss, but I like to think he would be more horrified by watching legislators using the bible to decide things instead of the Constitution.
Today, April 16th, was the Day of Silence for the countless people who participated nationwide across the US. The main goal is to make a statement; to stop discrimination and people looking down upon who people choose to love and who not to on such an extreme level. For example, NarutoActor. I know this member's not the only one,and I apologize for drawing him out, or I would if he had any sense of decency himself, but he doesn't. If this entire debate wasn't Ad Hominem filled already then I wouldn't bring up the subject of attacking people rather than the argument at hand, but the two tie in here. People like NarutoActor, who outright stop and try to figuratively spit in people's faces just because they can. If this member truly thought homosexuality was an abomination, then he would have stuck to the facts, rather than try to make fun of minority groups. That's why I underestimated the stupidity of people, because that post up there really sent me off the edge.

But then again, why am I surprised at all, to be honest? The same happened with African Americans, Jews, Women, and is currently happening with Muslims. The cycle repeats for LGBT teens and all homosexual people around the globe. I feel that if NarutoActor's best friend were to say that s/he were homosexual, than, based on what his post says, that person would have lost his best friend. That's how bad this situation is, that's how bad people are afraid these days of something that's not like them.

One of my best friends is bisexual, and he's mainly the reason I kept silent all day today. It makes the situation feel real, and for those of you who don't think it is... I'm really sorry, I guess I can't change your opinion.

I'm disgusted.

    That first quote you posted makes me embarrassed to even have a religion, which is the main reason I'm sure they did said that. If you're so "holy", you should know that God loves all his children. ALL. Gay, straight, homicidal, mentally challenged, what have you. That post just...reading it brings me to a boil. It's not like they were shoving anything down anyone's throat. There's nothing wrong with standing up for what you believe in. Absolutely nothing.

    ...

    Just...ugh. Bad words...that's ignorant. You don't make 11 people break.

    dsfjjsfkljdsfkljsj UGH.

    Edit: The "you" isn't directed at you, it's directed at Narutowhatever. Ridiculous.

    Nah, I understand exactly where you're coming from. I myself don't mind if they don't support it but when they outright harass others, that's when something like this becomes more serious. I almost reported that post, but thought it better for others to see what some people are thinking. It's sad.

    But then again, a good friend of mine just pointed out that when someone stands up for something, there's always going to be someone to harass them for it. The world's rough; not a cushion around every corner.

    I think the guy's just immature and he would've done it if it were another cause, too. :/ Basically he's just a douche.

    NarutoActor is an idiot and judging from that quote, he obviously knows nothing at all. I'm Catholic/Christian, but I never judge anyone because of their sexuality. That's just wrong. It's like they're bringing segregation between blacks and whites back again. D:

    Seriously, people these days need to learn, that being LGBT isn't an abomination. It's just the way people prefer to live their lives, and others should respect that.

    I probably would've supported it, but three reasons made me not support it this year:

    1) Didn't know it was today
    2) parents would probably question me; awkward conversations are awkward
    3) one of my friends who I hung out with today makes me laugh and talk a lot, so... epic fail for me

    The argument is thought out like this:

    "It's wrong cause it will violate our meaning of marriage, which is one man and one woman."
    And for some reason they think it will be a slippery slope and pedophelia will somehow be legalized if homosexual marriage is.

    I'd lol if it weren't so sad.
