I Wish I Were In Paris

From war to peace and politics to gossip, if we have an opinion on something we'll share it here.

It is a very disgusting day in this country when a Supreme Court rules that BIGOTRY and HOMOPHOBIA is okay. FUCK YOU CALIFORNIA!! I want nothing to do with California. I will not buy anything that comes from that state. I will not visit that state. At one point I wanted to move there, but not anymore. As far as I'm concerned, California can go to hell!!

To all you fucking Christian bigots, fuck your marriage, fuck your religion, and FUCK YOU!!

To all the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people of California, you've now been declared by the courts in California and all the bigots in your state to not be human. You've now been told that you have no rights!! Get out in the streets, and refuse to leave!! Get out in the streets and fight for your rights!! Make life HELL!!

What does Obama have to say about this? That bigotry and homophobia has been made LEGAL in this country? Oh wait, he doesn't care!! To him, a gay person doesn't deserve the right to marry. To him, a gay person is less than human!! To him I say too, FUCK YOU!!

    Wow! Intense anger. Perhaps you need to take a deep breath, maybe a warm bath and relax before going off the deep end. Those are some mighty strong words and accusations you're tossing around based on the CA government (and law) following it's defined process for letting people particpate in a democratic republic. What do you prefer - the CA supreme court tossing out the results of a vote presented to the entire state? That borders dangerously close to very non-democratic governmental ideas.

    The opposers of Prop 8 didn't make a strong enough case to prove their point. Or they had no real point to begin with that could be based in thier legal tactics. The court didn't agree with them. NO much reason for all the dramatics and theatrics. The world is not going to end and homosexuals are no worse off than they were before all of this began.

    Quite frankly you need to relax, or grow up, and vent your anger in a more constructive manner. Acting like a 2 yr old will not gain you any credability with any of the people you actually want to pay attention to you.

    Where's the unfounded accusation? Bigotry and homophobia was declared legal today!! That's not an unfounded accusation. That's a fact!! This court has upheld discrimination against a particular group of people because another group of people don't "approve" of their "behaviour".

    This is the same court who ruled that gays had the right to marry. Now all of a sudden because some religious lunatics spoke, they have no balls. They don't want to declare that it's illegal to deny someone the right to marry. Why? Because they're afraid that people will be screaming "YOU HATE CHRISTIANS"? Give me a fucking break!!

    You're damn right I'm angry!! You're damn right I have strong words for assholes like yourself!!

    I'm heterosexual and people like you make me sick!!

    Mr. Grant -

    Anger is one thing. Acting like an irrational teenager is something else. Do you act this way with everyone you meet that does not agree with you?

    The unfounded accusation is coming from all the things you are managing to read into this. Just take a look at your last reply - now you're reading into this the apparent lack of courage (balls?) of the justices to toss aside what 52% of the voting POPULATION of California wants. You've tried to drag in christians, although they are on both sides of the issue. You've tried to redefine bigotry based on a single social issue. You've somehow declared that bigotry and homophobia are now legal. Or at least your definition of them...You seem to feel that justices should toss aside the rules that govern society and replace them with the whims of a minority and it supporters.

    Do you want me to list any more? Instead of asking where I get this (from you) present an coherent arguement to prove me wrong.

    Have you read the entire option as to why the justices didn't overturn Prop8? Have you interviewed them to know their reasoning? You have some mighty slim definitions of homophobia and bigotry if you can read that into 6 people (who probably more educated and learned on this matter than you or I together) agreeing that Prop8 did NOT do what its opponents claim.

    I'm struggling to determine who is more of a bigot and suffers from *phobia more - me and the people you rail against...or you. You're exhibiting more bigotry and phobia than any of the religious groups that supported Prop8.

    Please, explain to me how upholding Prop8 discriminated against homosexuals? Or are you broading the group to include transgenders, bisexuals and numerous other "alteranate lifestyle" groups to make prove your point to yourself?

    When you get so upset over this, do think more than 5 minutes into the future about the far-reaching consequences this can have? Have taken a look at history to see how societal issues like this can change (or even undo) nations? Are you aware of just how many different ways "law" can impact and/or restrict how we live beyond the obvious right/wrong/shades-of-gray surface impact it has? Ever considered that just because it doesn't sit well with you there may well be a reason that for millenia humankind has disapproved of homosexuality? Have you read the histories of Rome and Greece and what led to their downfall? And no, it wasn't just their acceptance of alternative sexual activities.

    There is more at play here than your feelings or the "rights" of a group of people who prefer to have sexual relations with those of the same sex. There are some people who have reasons other than religion, personal vendettas or some misplaced definition of bigotry and *phobia to fight against homosexual marriage. What are YOUR reasons? Besides the obvious fact that you are mad?

    You're right - I don't support homosexual marriage. I have my reasons, and so far they would stand up in a court of law (or even public opinion) better than anything you've yet to present. Have you presented anything other than rage, name calling misplaced definitions?

    Put your disgust with supposed assholes like myself aside for 5 minutes and try to have a rational, logical discussion with yourself. You might discover that some of us have rather valid reasons (other than disapproval of sexual acts) to oppose homosexual marriage. Even if you don't like it.

    I'm trying to understand your position here - Help me out instead of personally attacking me.

    Rodney, Rodney, Rodney!! You see, this is my blog. I can say whatever I want and express what I want however I see fit. If you don't like it, don't read it!! It really is that simple.

    Now, let's move on to the subject at hand. You declare that homosexual marriage is wrong. You say that you have your reasons. But so far all I've heard is THE CHILDREN!! Or so you declared on another blog!! You list no examples how children are harmed by two same-sex people in a relationship or marriage.

    I don't want to hear some mumbo jumbo about this study and that study being done and it finds that children do well in a two parent home. Bullshit!!

    I've tried to drag Christians into this? Excuse me? Christians inserted themselves into this when they made a CHOICE to throw their religion around as an excuse to keep homosexuals from getting married.

    The Mormons inserted themselves into this when they became a huge financial backer of Prop 8. I didn't drag Christians into this. They did it all on their own.

    How did Prop 8 discriminate against homosexuals? How did upholding Prop 8 allow for discrimination against homosexuals? Oh gee, I don't know!! Declaring that two people of the same sex don't have a right to be married but heterosexuals do isn't discrimination in your opinion? Okay!! Then I'd like to hear your definition of discrimination.

    The following are some of the arguments used by supporters of Prop 8:

    *It protects the free expression of religion, as supporters of Proposition 8 were worried that Gay Rights advocates were not affording them the same courtesy--to live and believe as they please--as the Gay and Lesbian community was/is demanding.

    So religious people must be free to live and believe as they please but the Gay and Lesbian community should not? They shouldn't be allowed to live how they want to? Why? Because it's infringing on someone's religious beliefs? Here we are inserting religion into a government issue.

    *Supporters of Proposition 8 says that their support of Proposition 8 is not based on an attack on the gay lifestyle, but is rather their effort to preserve what they hold as core values surrounding a vision of traditional marriage.

    It absolutely is an attack on the "gay lifestyle" when you've singled out a group of people who are GAY!! Yet again, religion pops into the picture because people have used the Bible to support their argument for "traditional" marriage.

    *It overturns the decision of four activist Supreme Court judges in ruling unconstitutional a ballot initiative previously approved by the people.

    So they're activist judges!! Somehow I don't think that these same people are making that argument today!! They were only activist judges when they ruled that gay people have a civil right to get married.

    *It protects our children from being taught in public schools that “same-sex marriage” is as legitimate as marriage between two people of opposite genders.

    Here we go with the "children" argument. The children are going to be taught that gay people are like everyone else, and that it's okay to be gay. So what? They want the right to tell children that gay people are sinners? That gay people are wrong? That homosexuality is a mental illness?

    *Proposition 8 will protect religious universities, adoption providers, psychologists, doctors, and photographers from prosecution for denying services to same-sex couples for any reason, including their religious convictions.

    Yet again, more religion!!

    No discrimination right Rodney? No!! The religious people just want to be able to deny gay people the right to an education or job at "religious universities", the right to see and be treated by a doctor or a shrink, the right to adopt a child, or the right to have a picture taken.

    Did I ever stop to think of the far-reaching consequences of allowing a gay couple to be married? So the world is going to end, or this country is going to cease to exist if gay people get married? The world is going to end or this country is going to cease to exist if gay people are afforded the same rights as heterosexuals?

    And I'm the one who is being dramatic? I don't think so!!

    ParisL0ve2 -
    I owe you a sincere apology. Of course this is your blog, and I apologize for trying to tell you how to run it. I don't have a blog of my own, so I imagine that I've violated numerous blog ettiquette rules.

    I followed you here to see what you were like, especially after being so quick to attack me after no provocation. I stuck around to try to find out why you reacted the way you did. I pressed you for reasons because I feel the best way to test the validity of one's positions is to understand the opposing views. I hoped to do so with you.

    In any event, thank you for you reasoning and I truly apologize for approaching your blog as I did. I may further reply to your points after I've digested them.
