Well if you wanna go there, Peter...
No, Pete? You can't imagine your side writing anything nasty? Well, my friend, you need only to set yourself up a pro-gay website and you will see how quickly the "Christian love" pours in:
Those are just comments from the past week alone. And not even all of them, just the ones we were able to dig up in a very cursory search. If we wanted to compile all of the nasty comments that we have received over the past four years -- some of which have included literal threats of physical harm -- we would have enough to fill a multi-volume book set. The ones that cite God, Jesus, or the Bible would fill the majority of the pages.
So Pete, we certainly do think that there are people on our side who cross the line. When comments go beyond the pale, we rise up against them (just as we did last year when a gay commenter went too far with you, Pete). But don't you DARE use the phenomenon of online rage to stigmatize one group, painting everyone who leans left as "haters." We've collected more than enough instances of the right acting anything but!
**And here's another for ya, Pete. Hot off the presses:
Pete must be blissfully unaware of both Townhall.com and FreeRepublic.com

Jeremy, I dont know how you deal with reading this kind of thing every day but thank you for doing it.

Jeez, we would WELCOME a paedophile parade.
We'd be there, camera fully charged.
The problem is... they don't have parades. Wish they did. We all do wish they did. It would make things so much easier.
(But at least the secrecy allows Rome to claim plausible deniability, before losing the Court case.)
And that was a very unkind thing to say about you. I'm sure In His Mind anything smaller than 18" is small -- because that's how (obviously) big His is. Of course, there's never the photo to prove it nor one to create amusing and extended conversation at your next dinner party.
In reality anyone copping a surprised hold of F.McQ's 'wedding equipment' is most likely to respond... "No thanks, I don't smoke."
/sigh. Makes you wonder if community-based living for everyone really is better than institutionalisation for some. Social policy, what a dilemma.

LaBarbarian only sees what he wants to see and it's usually a distorted vision.

This is something i've seen accelerating recently - the weirdo religious whackjobs saying that EVERYONE else is a 'hater' and intent on taking away their rights. It's always been, but the frequency seems to be increasing and, actually, it seems to be all they have left in their arsenal, but I don't think anyone outside their little cliques actually buys it.

Jeremy you really do have a wicked sense of humor.
This is what he does and it's so freakin' annoying plus he doesn't have the balls to open his website for comments - can you imaging what his faithful Christian readers would say on his site.

Anon: I've always suspected that's more the reason why they don't open comments on their sites. It's not as much what we will say -- it's what their own side will say! This is certainly true on One News Now, where even through their heavily edited and filtered comments section, some truly nutty things slip in. And, as mentioned earlier, comments on sites like FreeRepublic are notoriously crazy.

"And, as mentioned earlier, comments on sites like FreeRepublic are notoriously crazy."
But it's all said with "Christian love" of course.

I see these comments by "Christian" gay haters as simply the death gasps of a movement that is on the losing end. They will eventually through time (especially with our continuous vigilance and progress) disappear into the dustbin of history. We must be vigilant and always be 2 to 3 steps ahead of their game in all aspects of the GLBT civil rights movement.

I'm envious of you, Jeremy!! Here you are, IMO a seemingly decent and nice guy, possibly a Gandhi follower, and you get tons of hate mail.
And me, 100X more vile than anything you've ever said, would only worship a "god" if she looked like Pam Grier as Foxy Brown, and all I got was some email on election night, praising Sally Kern's re-election (as if that affects anything where I live)!! LOL
Maybe if I acted friendlier and nicer, and smiled more often, I'd get more hate mail.....like THAT'S going to happen!!!

I stand corrected - I rejected a nasty comment from this morning, on a post of mine about the Andrea True Connection (only 1 profile view, obviously a sock puppet acct.):
"Kiss my ass you Goddamn faggot"
Which is funny, because only a faggot would be searching for Andrea True Connection.

Homosexuality is the opposite of diversity. 'Gay marriage' is called same-sex. Same (i.e. homo) is the opposite of diverse. In fact, homosexuality is diversity-intolerant, by definition. The opposite sex is always rejected by a homosexual person, without regard to the individual merit of that person, just because they are of a different gender.They dont agree
Sexy Ass Porn Ass or some else.Since there is zero gender diversity in any same-sex union, same-sex unions also contain zero gender equality. As a result, genders are sex-segregated into male and female dominated institutions.
