I must say.....this has been my favorite thead so far! So many AWESOME contributions!
I'm not gay myself....(though I can be a tomgirl at times, gosh, now that I think about it...used to chase them down...and fought for my right to be in my cousins neighborhood, boys club...(I cried my way in)...anyway.....this is a critical religious and political issue, as mentioned.
There was a news segment the other day where religious crazies were teaching their children to HATE gays! Even going so far as to having their little children and teens standing on street corners with signs saying.....I HATE GAYS and GOD HATES GAYS!
One teenager left home because she realized these actions were wrong and her parents asked her to move out. Even her tiny little sister banished her!
