Hey Focus on the Family employees:
If you come to our site to leave comments like this one...
Those who practice homosexuality have the same civil rights as every citizen. Homosexuals can marry, hold jobs,etc., just like all Americans. For opponents of same-sex marriage the issue is ALL about protecting the institution of marriage, standing up for what we believe is best for children AND society, NOT denying benefits. As for conservatives like James Dobson, they are consistent in that they also oppose heterosexual abuses of marriage such as adultery, divorce, pornography, and sex outside of marriage.
...then you really should identify yourself. As you may or may not know, we get your IP address every time someone makes a comment. And a very simple Google search links said IP addy right back to your Colorado Springs headquarters.
Thanks in advance for your future compliance.

How very typical that one of them would leave a comment without identifying his/herself. Since most of their videos, articles, websites offer no comment section or block comments and ratings, why should we expect anything less? They obviously have no concept of what freedom is, only that some people are more free than others. Let's send them some copies of Animal Farm.

so they don't care if gay people marry - in terms of guy/girl - even if there's no love, attraction, etc. NO NO, no problem there, as long as the pee pee fits in the vajayjay...
wow, that sounds like a fabulous marriage.
Hey lady - take a note from the Ted Haggards in the world. Those kinds of marriages cause more harm to more people and families than gay marriages ever could, did, or will.

Yeah! And the KKK is just a "civic organization" that is dedicated to "protecting white culture", continuity of Caucasian peoples, and white society "not" about oppression of African Americans.
Same tired old dribble from bigots just a different era.

So, if I stand up for pure Christianity - you know, the Roman Catholic kind - and argue for the protection of real marriage - the kind sanctified in an RC church - will Daddy Dobson mind if I start referring to him as a sexual pervert for not having the right kind of "marriage"?

Hold jobs? It should be pointed out to her that we can still be fired simply because we're gay in most parts of the country.
It's amazing how they don't educate themselves on the law and the people that they're persecuting. They think we have all the rights of everyone else but we just shouldn't marry, and somehow that justifies what they do. Uhm . . . NO.

Homosexual Americans have the same rights as heterosexual Americans? Try this on for size:
Gay Americans cannot marry a foreign national of *either* gender and then live together in the US. If a gay American marries someone of the same sex, that union is not recognized by the Department of Homeland Security. And if a gay American marries someone of the opposite sex, the government investigates the marriage to ensure it is not one of convenience (for my money, marrying someone from a gender you're not attracted to is the very definition of a marriage of convenience).
Federally-recognized same-sex marriage actually does the opposite of what our opponents claim. Far from limiting the rights of heterosexuals, same-sex marriage opens up new options to both straights and gays. Do we really think that after enacting gay marriage we'll see a rush of straight people marrying their same-sex friends?
But they'd have that right if they wanted to.

Thank you, DN, for that point.
Other than the "you can marry" argument being specious, it is flatly false. In addition to the restrictions on marriage to foreigners, even domestic opposite-sex marriage is not recognized for openly gay individuals.
Such marriage is considered fraud and would be readily challenged in court for situations of divorce (annulment actually), inheritance, social security, witness testimony, and any other situation in which even the most remote objection could be made.
As for "hold jobs", not in the military. And if this FoF employee were honest (well, what are the odds of that), they'd admit that they would like to restrict even more jobs; teaching, for example.

So Candi, would you marry me???

Focus on the Family is an anti-gay hate group and Mr. Dobson is a false prophet. Instead of making excuses on other websites to justify their sin of homophobia, they need to repent.
