Gay Rights
"We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on Livejournal. There is no bribe or a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

No pressure thought, LOL. I thought this was an interesting conversation piece to post as my first public entry, so I posted it.

Very good first post!

I could post it but you seem to be the only one reading my livejournal right now.

What rights are those? Homosexuals have the same rights as any other citizens in our country. Please explain. I'm sure you wouldn't just post a mindless quote without actually thinking it through, right?

I will do my best but this is in part an exercise in futility. We differ greatly as to what we view as rights so you will not accept most of my reasoning.

Gay marriage, or a union that ensures same-sex couples the same rights and protections as opposite-sex couples is a right. Without any sort of union same-sex couples only have legal arrangements which cost thousands of dollars and only provide a fraction of the protections of marriage. Also not so long ago some states passed legislation which made those types of documents not worth the paper they were printed on. I also don't believe this country can be successful with separate but equal so I am proven wrong I will be for same-sex marriage.

There is also some other issues for rights, like religious freedom. I don't think churches should be forced to perform same-sex marriages. However I also believe that the sort of reverse. Religions (included some forms of Christianity) that perform same-sex marriages that are not recognized by the state are having their religious rights infringed upon.

Then there is adoption, while in many states adoption is possible, it is also generally harder for same-sex couples to adopt. Also many states do not allow same-sex couples to adopt, so only one partner can legally adopt the child, and legally speaking the other partner may as well be a stranger.

These are the big ones that spring to mind and if I think of others latter I probably will post about them.

Interesting. I'm not going to pursue it because I have no guarantee that I won't be left hanging in the discussion, as happened on my journal.

Please let me know if you are going to finish that and address whatever was left undone, or if it's going to be the usual deal of me wasting my time. (I'm in another discussion on another topic with someone else who has chosen to do the same thing. It's really frustrating.) Thank you.

The only thing I can really say is that I am much better at responding at my own journal than in others.

This is a cop out and you know it. There is no difference between thinking and typing in the very same internet location/format, and thinking/typing in simply another "room", as it were, of the same general location.

Why not be honest? I gave challenges that you not only can't address, but refuse to even attempt to address. For whatever reason, you're too cowardly to do it on my LJ.

What nonsense. But yeah, pretty much what I figured.

That's because you ban everyone to the left of Ion Antonescu.

You're a liar. I have not banned glo unit.

However, I have banned you, because you have been proven to be irrational and downright frightening and have a reputation for stalking people.

Go stalk someone else.

No response, much less an apology for your false statement, eh? Typical.

I admire your willingness to engage, as well as your resistance to bullying. Cheers!
