    I wonder if US pastors have something to do with this, like they did in Uganda?

    Homophobia seems to be on the rise lately.

    The video you posted is from September. Your OP uses the term "quietly" in its title.

    Is it a deliberate attempt by you to be obtuse or simply disingenuous?

    Conservatives around the world are rejoicing. Finally a government that is doing one of the few things a government should do: repressing the gayz.

    I support less govt involvement in marriage. With respect to what 2 people do within their bedroom, who cares. If 2 guys or 2 women feel like getting it on then more power to them.

    Do you have any proof of that?

    Are you just telling lies or what?

    So you limit the fun to 2 men or 2 women.

    What about the Progressives who have fallen in love with their horse?

    Or a little boy in the class that they teach?

    When the courts loosen the rules to include homosexuality they open the door for many more sexual perversions.

    The "rejoicing" is short-lived in the United States. Over and over again, the will of the people as expressed in vote after vote in state after state is overturned by some self-important demi-god liberal judge who thinks he "knows better" than we unwashed cattle what should be and what should not. If that isn't government by the pronouncement of a dictator in judge's robes, then what could be...?

    The icing on the cake? A queer judge overturning the vote of the People of California: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/04/federal-judge-overturns-californias-sex-marriage-ban/ Sieg Heil!

    Or conservative pundits on their 4th childless marriage.

    Yeah sure... it's the homosexuals who are destroying marriage and not the Republican politician who stops by the hospital to get his cancer stricken wife to sign the divorce papers.

    Parents think we can "control" our children but we can't. Sometimes children need to learn lessons the hard way and hopefully they don't get injured or worse.

    If people want to engage in homosexual sex, especially males, despite the statistics of HIV and other diseases then no law will stop them from engaging in sex. Govt involved in marriage is something different and the govt should not expand its role. But, trying to stop people from engaging in homosexual sex is not going to happen. We are talking about such a tiny percentage of the population. Heck, in the USA alone, more people lost their insurance policies due to Obamacare than those who engage in the homosexual lifestyle.

    You realize it's conservative judges overturning these bans right? And civil rights are never subject to majority vote. The judges are bound by the constitution to overturn the bans.

    It may be a small percentage of the population in some places now but homosexual perversion and the corruption of society is a growing problem.

    First the unelected lib judges legalized gay sex.

    Problem solved right?

    After all according to you that's all gays really want is the freedom to do disgusting things to each other without the cops busting down their door and dragging them away.

    That was the debate 40 years ago.

    Now the new sexual frontier has shifted to gay marriage and promoting the homosexual lifestyle to little children in the public schools.

    Gays are sick people and they will not stop until the rest of society is as screwed up as they are.

    These are not conservative judges.

    They are activist liberal judges.

    Same sex relationships offer nothing to a society. It's Nigerias choice, and they made it. Sorry to the sex obsessed left in America.

    It isn't growing. They've always been here and in the same percentages.

    You mean conservative judges


    I'm pretty sure gays just want equality.


    .
    Nobody is promoting it.
    How are gays sick?





    Nope. They're conservative. That will never stop being true Mac. I know you hate that fact, but it's still a fact.

    You may successfully peddle that lie to your fellow libs as it was peddled to you but it won't irk on me.

    These are liberal activist judges who are overthrowing the will of the majority.

    And the will of the majority is irrelevant when it comes to civil rights. You could no more vote to ban interracial marriage, or remove a woman's right to vote.

    Why do you nanny state republicans hate the constitution and freedom?

    Tyranny exists everywhere.

    If your house is being raided by police and you're a homosexual Nigerian, you should use whatever means to kill the armed thugs, and go into hiding. 14 years in a cage like an animal is not an easy sentence. Self defense is justified. Keep an automatic weapon around the house. Buy one on the black market if need be.

    Obama shouldn't interfere. He has more than enough problems with his own country. Stealing from his subjects and using the funds to kill Africans won't help a darn thing.

    Are democrats aware Nigeria is not in America? The US constitution makes no difference in Nigeria. Gay judges in california make no difference to Nigerians.

    I dont see whats to be so upset about....

    Obama is making nuclear weapons deals with Iran, liberals say nothing, knowing full well, you get executed in Iran for being gay....

    Does that stop obama from making deals with Iran? nope, leftys dont even care.....

    I bet if Nigeria had oil or some crap like that, obama would be making deals with them too....

    Maybe gay democrats are mad enough to invade nigeria over the laws they pass in their own country, but Im not....

    IIRC, Nigeria is about evenly divided between Christians and Muslims. We all know that Muslims love the gays, so sure, we can go with that theory of yours.

    I will address what I put in bold text

    I agree that society is losing morality and has grown corrupt. That is not caused by people who choose to engage in homosexual sex. It is more a result of liberalism and removing stigma and values. I am not worried about a "growing" homosexual population as it is barely 3% and the majority of people choose to live a heterosexual lifestyle.

    About children in schools. I am vehemently opposed to rules like we see in California where teachers are to identify historic figures who engaged in homosexual sex. How they chose to engage in sex has no bearing on accomplishments. Let's review a person who is elevated in California; Harvey Milk. He was some 4th rate local politician and his claim to fame is that he slept with other men/boys. How sad is it that his accomplishments were nothing but he chose the homosexual lifestyle so that makes him a local hero.

    About those who choose homosexuality as being "sick". Until such time as there is a medical test to show that one is born hetero or homosexual then it cannot be proven if it's a choice about how you have sex or if it's how you are born. If you have the leap of faith that you are born that way, then you probably won't view it as a sickness unless the "gay gene" is discovered and a cure created.

    If you have the leap of faith that it's nothing more than a choice with respect to how you have sex, and I believe it to be a choice, then you may view those who choose to engage in homosexual sex as having some type of mental illness aka "sick".

    Regardless of which belief you have, engaging in homosexual sex should be left to the personal choice and govt should not tell you that you can't have sex that way. Now, about creating rules and laws about a sexual lifestyle choice is an entirely different subject and frankly, should not even be considered because we are all equal and how we have sex should not be considered nor special protected groups created because of it.
