    It's the principle of the thing. And it certainly points to the hypocrisy of those who are only interested in their own agenda and want the rest of us to accept it.

    True, that. Perhaps a Christian Pride parade?

    Gays do not demand that you be gay too. But they do want as much space in this society as you take for granted.

    Christians don't demand that non-Christians be Christian. But the two life-styles are incompatible.

    Is that why they have parades in which they can act like perverts and freaks?

    For people who claim to want to be tolerated, they sure work hard at being intolerable.

    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    That's just it ... they can't just be "decent people who happen to be gay", they have to be IN YOUR FACE about it --- I couldn't even POST most of the pictures I found just by Googling "Gay Pride Parade". Women wearing vagina suits, men wearing "extenders" on their penis..... In front of children...

    Remember when homosexuality was listed as a mental illness? I think the folks who "march" in Gay Pride Parades are making the case it actually is a mental illness.

    There may come a time when gay pride marches are as unnecessary as straight pride marches, but for now, it looks like a little more work is needed. I think they do it for your enlightenment.

    I don't need that kind of enlightenment, thank you very much. And gay pride marches are not necessary any more than straight pride marches.

    It's all about forcing acceptance and refusal to allow ME to say what I think.

    I think they do it because it's what's in their hearts.
