Re: Steve Young's family up against Mormon church on Prop. 8

So we're comparing choosing to smoke with choosing to be gay?



I think you're either gay or you're not. Seems like an awfully odd "choice" to make.

Re: Steve Young's family up against Mormon church on Prop. 8

I'm sure we can all remember the day we made a choice to be heterosexuals...for me it was the first time I saw boobs in a movie. They seemed mysterious and magical and I had this urge to want to touch them and squeeze them and play with them and discover the physics of them.

One actually says he has found god and is no longer gay so I guess in his case it was a choice. I have always felt that 50% of gays are born that way and the other 50% choose the life style for one reason or the other.

Sometimes I think your world is no bigger then a broom closet. This has to be one of your top 5 dumbest post.

this is what i have problems understanding as well.

members of the "small gov't" want very limited federal gov't and to be allowed to live how they and their local community wishes, i.e. laws and regs on intimate and personal issues should be left to the individual person or their local voted-for representative.

yet when it comes to gay marriages and abortions (2 issues representing the core of what I consider intimate and personal choices), the "small gov't" people in texas want communities in california to abide by their own preferences on issues such as abortion or gay rights.

i agree to an extent with the small gov't group. imo arlington va representatives are much more closely in-tune and aware of their towns wishes and needs more than the president of the US. so if a town in texas wants to ban gay marriages, so be it. if a town wants to allow gay marriage, so be it.

thats why we have salt lake city and las vegas.

some good discussion going on here fellas. this has to be some of the most intelligent discussion ever had between football fans on a football fan forum.

Nice reply to a two year old post. For a second I thought SGG was back.

I actually found firstdowns post more open minded than most. He could've taken the TTE route and thought gays should be destroyed. :P Not saying first right, but just saying he could've been way way more obtuse (everyones favorite word!) So I gotta give firstdown some kudos. A bit misguided, but kudos nevertheless.

For the most part I find him humorous but his comments about gays wanting to be gay is just plain retard.

So you can read minds now? I don't need to think gays should be destroyed. Their effed up lifestyle, crystal meth, and HIV destroys them regardless of what I think. I lived and worked in San Francisco and in the East Bay. I watched them destroy themselves. It gave me no pleasure in doing so, but pity is for the weak. It's a hard ball world and not everyone has compassion for self-inflicted wounds.
