By your argument, no mention of the Days of 47 parade, General Conference, or the Twilight Concert series is appropriate for discussion on these forums.
And I didn't call you a name or insult you. Even so, saying someone is a bigot or prejudice isn't slang or derogatory. If someone calls an African American the N word and I say that person is racist, am I being just as base and derogatory as the person who used the N word?
With that in mind, go back and look at the blatant contradiction in your previous post. You start by saying its only fair to fight exclusion with exclusion (I think... You're post was tough to follow) and then get offended and say I insulted you for disagreeing. That's a bit... Uh, what's the word? Oh yeah, hypocritical.
If there's room here for a hundred posts about Mormon temples and the MTC, there's room for a mention about the pride parade.
There's mention of the MTC because of their plans to expand hence a future development project. There's mention of Provo's new temple because again it's a development project. Unless I somehow missed the part that a building would be develop due to this pride event then there really isn't much relevance to it in this forum. I'm sure there's plenty of pro gay forum that you all could go to to post the news.
Scott, you need to re-read my post. Not once did I say that you called me names. But I've had plenty of debates about this issue in the past else where when they were very quick to lable me as such. So what's so hypocritical about not agreeing with something? You know I can live my life with my wife and kids without trying to shove it in other's faces, but yet when the gay agenda gets shoved in my face time and time again I can't ever say anything about it because heavens forbid if their feelings might get hurt. Or heavens forbid if church windows were to get smashed out due to a temper tantrums because something didn't pash in their favor I can't be upset by that because again Feelings could get hurt oh no. I've never gone out to a gay club and smashed out windows or told some gay owner that I will boycott them just because I don't agree with them. So they can believe what ever the hell they want, but fuck the values that I believe in. Give me a break.
They can live their lives however they want. Doesn't mean I have to agree or even support it. But yet it feels like there's a gun to my head that I have to agree and support that lifestyle.
They want my respect, but are not willing to show any in return.
