What would you do in that situation?
When what is supposed to be a news show turns to activism.
In real life we see people living in ways we don’t approve of and behaving in ways we don’t approve of and we just carry on, it is a live and let live world as it should be.
And of course ABC had to set up a scenario where a “bigot” makes a scene to create this piece of propaganda, which is what it is.
Gay Marriage is wrong, it will always be wrong. We will have to live with it and the consequences of it because of this sort of agitprop from the so called unbiased media and because of weak, spineless politicians dragged along by their more malevolent collegues.
But if you think that fifty years from now we will all be living in a kum ba ya singing paradise because of this insane thing you are sadly deluded
LoL,I can hear your little trotter stomp from here.
Who`s WE ,Kemosabe` ?
Probably not you, you are most likely one of those repulsive people who go out of their way to make other people uncomfortable – like the jerk who made this video
like the sausage do we Rogee ?
Your paucity of rationality SB,prevents you from understanding that a difference of opinion does not necessarily mean another bats for the other side.
As a gay man early on i wasn’t really bothered about Gay marriage.
I mean as Peter Griffin said from Family Guy ‘If gay people want to be sad and miserable like the rest of us then he was all for gay marriage.
BUt ive since been swayed WTF shouldnt we have the same rights.
It makes me laugh how all the WEIRDO’s come out that it will destroy the sanity of marriage and blah blah wank wank
What a load of SHIT the only people destroying the so called sanity of marriage is the DOWL BORING religions, and the Celebrities like the Kardashians, pop stars etc, Who marry of like 17 days etc. PLus i think theres a lot of sad jealous trapped straight guys with the one pussy for life when us guy boys can still have vairety.
SUCK IT UP BITCHES
News flash buddy no straight man is trapped for life with one pussy unless he chooses to be… that is unless of course you are implying straight guys are somehow weaker than a gay man? If a straight married man wants variety there is nothing to stop him other than promises made and his own concience. He’s not trapped, he just has decisions to make which he is free to do and the consequences are his. You confuse yourself, in one sentence you want the right of marriage, however in the next breath you are applauding the fact that without mariage you can enjoy variety and somehow all those straight married men are jealous of this gay freedom you have. Yeah right.
Fool im just stating facts you homophobes go all crazy and attack us when really most cases youre jealous we have the freedom we do
You really do live in a fantasy world of your own – no we pity you for your sad little lives and sordid ways
There’s a typo in that Andrei. Here, I’ll correct it for you:
“Mick, you live a lifestyle that makes us uncomfortable when we spend an inappropriate amount of time fixating on it, particularly what’s happening right now in your bed. Yes, it is our business! IS SO! IS SO! IS SO!
Look, this book we read doesn’t say a whole lot specifically about your lifestyle, but we’ve decided to interpret it as condemning you. Don’t mind us coming in uninvited and correcting this for you, our interpretation is that our God would probably be happy with that. No, we don’t care that you mind. Oh, and could we have that change on the counter? Our God is a little short this week.”
You’re welcome, Andrei. Now, you’d better get back to Lucia’s blog and cry foul some more over LRO’s reporting of inconvenient facts, before the butt-hurt of the truth turns into a prolapsed rectum.
But we don’t fixate on your sordid ways you silly fellow, rather you shove your disgustingness in our faces – like demanding that our venerable institutions be rewritten into accomodate your empty vanities.
Nobody venerates your institutions Andrei.
The idols who lead your church have feet of clay.
Stop opening your mouth an areas where it doesn’t belong, and nothing will be rammed down your throat, good fellow :)
DOH! marriage is an agreement so if youre any good at negotiations theres room for some space and open mindness as alot of str8 couples relise. If you seriously belive in marriage one woman on man then good luck. Im happy for you.
Most women believe in one spouse for life, but the 70% of men who cheat clearly think otherwise….
Except for the use of the derogatory term, you make a good point. He undermines his claim for marriage at the end when he disrespects it in the next breath.
And he is wrong re trapped straight guys. Most straight married men (70% in fact) seem to pretend to respect what marriage is meant then just continue on playing around afterwards.
And women cheating is on the rise too.
But he made good points elsewhere re the celebrity marriages etc.
The pope fantasizing that god communicated with him is wrong .
The pope lying will always be wrong .
The whole idea of a fag in red shoes , with a male model in his room , having millions of braindeads dancing to his tune is wrong .
So much about so much is wrong . So many wrongs , Andrei.
The Pope’s ongoing efforts to protect priests who sexually abuse children is WRONG, and it will always be WRONG.
Mother and Mother = wrong just like Father and Father = wrong. Its wrong and its disgusting. immoral, and against Gods wishes.
How the fuck would you know what your idiot god wants?
Have you ever thought its silence and inaction on the subject is tacit approval ? The amount of bumfucking your clergy get up to ,I would suggest it approves wholeheartedly,otherwise why would it need a pack of numpties like christians to do its bidding,you know like being omnipotent and all?
Breath through ya nose Roge..you’ll see, its coming your way Roge.
He he SB, noticed you avoided the question tho`.
God sees all sinners Roge…best you keep ya nose clean eh?
My god asked me to tell you to fist yourself. Praise be to my god.
Your God is you , Mitch .
I can beat that.
Empty threats SB.
So Inbred Mum N Dad who booze up beat the bitch and the kids is a better life for the kids. WHAT A MORON
Go and play on the road mick…the adults are talking.
Really then dumb people arent aloud so FUCK off back your cave
“then dumb people arent aloud so FUCK off”
lol you said it mate. Off you go.
Based on God’s wishes? Prove it. Bet you cant. But bet I can prove God has plenty to say about the kind of comments you make on here port side.
Here’s a hint: the measure with which you judge others will be used to judge you.
how dumb. i wanted to see some reach around.
Ugly propaganda by ABC, contrived and stereotyped. They’re actually doing the very thing the actress is trying to contrive. The “let’s try really hard to show how victimised gays are and how bigoted Texans are” hour.
It would be interesting to see some of the footage that didn’t get to air.
Charmed I’m sure.
It all sounds like a left driven pro-homo propaganda piece to me.
I don’t see why everyone is getting so upset, all gay marriage means is your transvestite mothers’ can finally marry legally, and tear up their “Fake” marriage documents.
It’s the say nothing world that drives them all crazy after all.
It was “Standard” practice in the 40’s and 50’s if yas didn’t know … something about being ostracised from society or something.
Reality TV whale ? Let’s stick to ‘real’ reality , mate.
I bet 100% of the homophobes here have NO connection with their kids Yet hate and are jealous cos gay parents can relate to their kids
Will probably cop a lot of shit for this so some facts up front.
I am an aetheist, no religious affiliations at all. I have no kids, don’t see myself as making a good parent so won’t breed them. Won’t respond to replies as lets be honest it is a waste of time. No one posting in these threads is legitimately going to change their position so it will just go around in endless circles.
The best environment for a kid is a loving father and mother, that should be a goal of society. A father and father or mother and mother is not on the best interest of the kids, instead it is for the benefit of the parents.
Using the fact that there are lots of shit heterosexual parents so gay parents are better is rubbish, get rid of the shit parents rather than adding family situations that are “better” rather “best”. The whole gay marriage debate is about legitimising families that can’t happen naturally as you are missing some key bits of the equation required to breed without outside interference.
It’s a fair enough opinion, from your point of view. My view is, your argument is flawed when you say… “…that should be a goal of society”. Shouldn’t the goal of society be trying to achieve the best for kids? If that is so, it’s immaterial what the sex is of those that raise the kids. The world isn’t at risk of dying due to a lack of people that will reproduce and if the parents are said to be shit… sure pass the kids to the same sex couples who will achieve the goal of trying to achive the best for the kids.
The other flaw to the argument is that no matter what… there will always be shit parents and to be rid of them is frankly impossible because its not a regulated thing.
How amazing that there are people in Texas – the heart of right wing Christian fundamentalism, that have the decency & good character to stop this women & her morally repugnant & highly inappropriate comments.
Apologies unsol if I have offended your finer sensiblities by using the word ‘pussy’. If you will note I was merely repeating the word that was used in the comment I was responding to (perhaps not the wisest but hey I don’t walk on water yet :). I actually agree with Callum. Men and women are completely different and bring two totally different behaviours into a relationship which when combined to raise a child properly I believe creates balance. For example my husband would tie a reasonable size piece of carpet behind a van when they were younger and the children would climb on and hold on to the handle he made and he would drive them around in circles out in the padock and they loved it. Men do those things with children that push the safety boundary that where I will say ‘be careful or don’t’ he will say ‘they’ll be fine’. In doing so he teaches them their boundaries. He takes them fishing and while I am happy to go along I would not have instigated this activity and I certainly would not teach them how to take a hook out of the fish and to gut and fillet etc. He taught our son to ride a motor bike – I would not. He takes them tramping and does things like the Tongariro Crossing with them – I would not. He can’t be bothered listening to their idle chatter hours on end and he doesn’t wade into their trivial daily issues, but he will be there at 2 in the morning if trouble is about and they need him. The female brings the softer side to the relationship, we worry, we mother, we teach them to cook and sew, we help with homework, we listen. We kiss them goodnight and teach them their prayers. We are the ones who get up and check on them through the night when they are sick. All in all together we make a home. The concern is do two gay people bring such contrasting personalities that when combined they will meet all of a childs needs. Obviously love and stability are a huge part of wellbeing but men and women are very different and in our home we embrace those differences because they compliment each other when raising a family.
They are not female & male differences that you refer to, but more interests & personality differences. In our family it is me that grew up doing all the tramping (as in bush bashing), camping, fishing & hunting & it is my brother who naturally took to sewing, hairdressing, designing & cooking.
And you will find that gay or straight there are many variations on this. Many women are not nurturers per se not are they homemakers. It is their spouse – male or female that might perform these roles.
That is the whole point of this debate – society, family & marriage as already been revolutionized away from what many considered to be traditional & the norm. This Bill change merely legitimizes what is already in place including gay adoption (no law against a gay person adopting just that they can’t adopt together so the non primary caregiver becomes a permanent guardian instead).
But we have discussed this before. Question is, would you say anything to the waitress? I know I would. Irrespective of different values I ould never stand by & watch anyone be degraded, belittled or humiliated
And no I couldn’t possibly be offended by the use of the word pussy, but I did find it curious that you were happy up use it just because it forms part of a quote.
You raise several points here unsol, however with regard to the judgmental waitress the thought of ‘he who is without sin should cast the first stone’ comes to mind. In this instance we perhaps could view her insults as being the stone. She had no business hurling her insults when she herself has no doubt done a number of things that could warrant someone throwing a few insults her way, and I would like to think that I would have pointed this truth out to her (particularly when there were children present and they were being subjected to her rudeness). We are certainly told not to judge and with good reason because our own conduct falls short of the required standard. The issue is and always will be though, what is right and what is wrong – what indeed is the standard and who is to say that it is so? The minute
someone tries to suggest or impose a standard by which mankind should live by there are howls of protest and outrage by those who believe their behavior is being restricted or perhaps found lacking. I personally don’t presume to know the answer as my understanding is limited (as is everyone’s). We could all look to our inner conscience to see what we think is right and wrong but we wouldn’t be in agreement nor would we be right because it is so subjective. As a Christian I believe God’s word gives us the true answer on this. Whether I agree with it or not I still hold it up as a greater authority than my own and I try to base my actions accordingly.
