More Brushstrokes

I left a number of comments at another Yahoo news story, "Gay marriage law strains UK Cameron's leadership, government". As I explained in my last post here, a large painting is made up of innumerable small brushstrokes. So, when I don't have time to put together a long essay on a given topic, I can nonetheless give some gay readers points I think we need to make in public. Some people might want to use some of these points in their own argumentation against the antigay bigotry that is everywhere rampant on the Internet. Here, then, are 26 short comments for your consideration.
Noah and the ark is fiction. Marriage is NOT about children, but about adults. And this planet is hugely overcrowded and starving as a consequence. Nearly 15 million people a year, mostly children (if you want to talk about children as the be-all and end-all of the universe) die from starvation, and every last one of them was born due to heterosexuality — and killed by irresponsible reproduction.

The First Amendment refers to GOVERNMENT action. You have no rights against Yahoo, which is a private service that is entitled to enforce its Terms of Service.
*
Drivel. The issue is SEXUAL behavior between consenting adults, not bomb-making. And tho you may be unable to distinguish between different things, sane and honest people can.
*
Pls do not make up statistics. NO ONE knows how many gay people there are. There is no question about sexual orientation on the Census form; many gay people do not accept, for many years, their orientation because of bigotry; and most gay people hide because of intimidation.
*
Opposite-sex couples are not allowed incest, so marriage equality would merely preserve that prohibition. Your arguments, Inde, are fatuous and contemptibl[y] dishonest.
*
No, Inde, you are totally anxious about your attraction to people of the same sex. It's sad. If this doesn't concern you, why do you fixate on it and insist on commenting over and over and over on a topic that is irrelevant to your life?
*
Jc, your illiterate posts show you as a person not worthy of any heed. Do you mean "irreverent" or "irrelevant"? Doesn't matter. You are illiterate, so no one should pay any attention to anything you say.
*
By all means do stop paying taxes; then the Govt will arrest you and send you to prison, from which you will not be permitted to post idiot nonsense to Yahoo.
*
There is no God, so if your only argument against homosexuality is God, you HAVE NO ARGUMENT. Further, the philosopher Jesus of Nazareth gave us the Golden Rule. Read it aloud and apply its instruction to homosexuality, if you dare.
*
Actually, Americans are much better educated than Britons, and we don't approve of classes. It is not necessary to insult Americans to praise some good things being done in Britain. But note that the law has not yet been approved, so how tolerant are Brits, really?
*
The same rights are NOT "special rights". How did this dopy argument about "special rights" ever get to be a standard talking-point of the Radical Right?
*
Oh, there are plenty of straight divorces, so there is no such economic motive behind this drive. Further, there would likely be a far lower incidence of divorce among gay people who don't jump in and out of marriage to people they are not SURE they want to be committed to long-term. "Sin" is a dopy concept, but if we are to talk about sins, let's talk about the sin of hating people who have never done anything to you, and denying them equal treatment under law.
*
Hitler has no relevance to this discussion.
*
Get another hobby, one-line TROLL. Try annoying people face-to-face, where they can take care of you pronto.
*
The patterns of AIDS are plainly NOT those of an infection. You know NOTHING about AIDS.
*
There is no God, no devil. Only fools believe in either.
*
Yes, there are many more important issues to genuine heterosexuals, who don't need to tell other people how to live. But to gay people who are denied the rights of marriage, there are few to no more important issues. It's like voting rights for blacks. Not important to whites, but very important to blacks.
*
There is no such thing as an "HIV case". HIV is not a disease. Do not mix and match "HIV" and "AIDS". They are not the same thing.
*
Nobody said you were Protestant, "Trans" (curious ID, considering your adamance against all things remotely gay or gender-confused). The Church has no authority, because there is no God. Read Jesus's Golden Rule aloud to see that it is completely consistent with homosexuality.
*
That a Conservative Government in Britain might lose the next election because of divisions produced by a gay-marriage bill IS news.
*
Sarcasm does not come across well in writing. Say what you mean. Some people might actually think Oklahoma HAS legalized same-sex marriage. And joking about 51 dead is appalling.
*
How many times are you going to post that same religious crap to every story about homosexuality on Yahoo? You have it in a word-processing document, don't you, and you cut-and-paste it over and over endlessly. But nonsense repeated endlessly is still nonsense. There is no God, so who cares what "God" is said to have said? Worse, you are quoting Saul of Tarsus, who persecuted Christians "even unto death". Saul ("Paul") is NOT Jesus, never met Jesus, never heard a word he said, and has NO authority over anything. Read Jesus's Golden Rule, which explicitly embraces homosexuality.
*
AIDS has nothing to do with homosexuality. You know NOTHING about AIDS, which is plainly NOT following the pattern of an infection.
*
Jesus gave us a simple rule by which to judge morality. It's called the Golden Rule, and it expressly embraces homosexuality — indeed, much better than it covers heterosexuality.
*
Bru, there are 19 MILLION cases of VD in the U.S. each year, so sex of any kind entails risks. Healthy people don't make other people sick.
