Let's pretend we're straight homophobes on the subject of gay marriage
"But if gay marriage is allowed the human will become extinct eventually".
Real statement I heard.
"When the Bible says that divorce isn't allowed, that's just a recommendation. When it condemns homosexuality, that must be followed to the letter."
Sanctity of marriage! Sanctity of marriage!
"Marriage has always been between a man and a woman."
Oddly enough, the homophobes I know support gay marriage. It's abstract enough for them, I guess.
"Marriage is for procreation and two dudes or two chicks can't have a baby."
"If gay marriage is allowed, priests who are against it will be taken away in chains."
Why am I being persecuted for persecuting gays?!
"I (who joined the KKKatholic church in my 30s) should be allowed to marry and divorce men four separate times (so far), but my religion is accepting of gay people... as long as they don't act on their attraction to people of the same sex, and that's perfectly fair."
"It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."
God that line is stale.
G8d hates phags.
Those types kill me R8. Yes, our church is accepting of gays as long as you don't act on your sexuality.
Also, do we have to be straight?
We can be gay homophobes, which are the best kind.
THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Gay parents will recruit them!!!!!!
My favorite: a man will now be able to marry his son in order to avoid estate taxes.
If I'm too afraid to suck cock, than no other dudes can either!
What you do in the privacy of your bedroom is none of my business, but why do you have to [flaunt it] [rub my nose in it?]
I'm not a homophobe. I don't fear gay people. I don't hate gay people. I hate homosexual acts.
I wonder which one plays the role of the woman?
R24, apparently R12 wondered the same thing.
"Next thing you know people will be marrying their dogs, or their horses."
"Gay people CAN get married. They can marry someone of the opposite sex. A fag can marry a lesbo."
I seriously want to stab people who say that.
I'm with R15. The theme of this thread speaks volumes about OP's need for other people's hating him, since his own self-loathing doesn't suffice. .. Poor dear..
You end up with two spouses bitching at the other for not putting the seat down to pee.
Actually this thread was created with the intent to mock idiot homophobes and their equally idiotic statements.
"I've done the gay community a great favor by giving them a cause to rally around. Why can't they show their gratitude by supporting my awesome new movie?"
Not true, R28 and R15. You can be tossing the remarks back and forth (to refute them, mock them, or just compare notes) and not be remotely self-loathing.
What's sad is psychoanalyzing someone (badly) from a post on a frivolous site.
The gay-straight group at my kid's high school does it, and as a result, a bunch of 15 through 19 year olds are quick with a retort, and never let a comment like these go by without using one (at least mine doesn't). I think that's a good thing.
[R22], don't forget the classic "shoving it down our throats!"
"It's written in the bible, it's written in the bible"
Why should we give homosexuals "special" rights?
"So which one's the woman?"
One even better R35. "Why don't we get special rights?".
"They're starting to take over everything, demanding all these legal 'rights' and stuff!"
--Actual quote from a homophobic acquaintance...who's black.
"There should be a straight pride day!"
"Your sexuality is infringing on my religious freedom."
I can't believe a black person said that R38. They should be very supportive of gays considering their own history.
What's next on the gay agenda? Teaching our children that's it's OK to be gay?
MY SKINS DON'T EQUAL YOUR SINS!

One of the theories as to why California Prop. 8 passed in 2008 was that it was due to the larger-than-normal number of minority voters that year; many were older and deeply religious.
R43, I don't understand, what was La'Tan'ya trying to say?
"The freedom of people who do not agree with homosexual lifestyle is at stake."
(A close cousin of R40 and R7, lifted from a news site's comments section.)
This is another front in the Democrat war on religion.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
