Cities Across America Creating Rainbow Crosswalks to Celebrate ‘LGBTQ Pride’

Several American cities recently approved the creation of rainbow crosswalks to celebrate “LGBTQ pride,” and homosexual advocacy groups are circulating petitions to request that more cities paint their crosswalks with the “diversity” stripes.

Houston, Texas, Atlanta, Georgia and Washington, D.C. created rainbow crosswalks to coincide with their June homosexual pride events. In Atlanta, the display will be permanent.

“I believe that symbols of unity matter,” Mayor Kasim Reed said in a statement. “In recognition of the outstanding and ongoing contributions of Atlanta’s LGBTQ community to our city, I am pleased to announce today that the city will install the rainbow crosswalks at the intersection of Piedmont Avenue and 10th Street year-round.”

“This intersection in Midtown is recognized for its history as a hub for Atlanta’s LGBTQ community, and it is fitting that such an important and recognizable place should feature the rainbow flag,” he remarked. “We must never forget that love defeats hate, and light defeats the darkness.”

In Houston, friends of a man who was killed in a hit-and-run in the city requested permission to paint the crosswalk at Westheimer Road and Taft Street in rainbow stripes.

“While this project was initially requested by friends of Alex Hill, the idea behind the crosswalk is to also honor the support and friendship many find in Houston’s LGBT community,” Matthew Brollier, one of the men behind the effort, told KPRC-TV.

“The hope is that the crosswalk serves as a marker of encouragement to all Houstonians and visitors in recognizing the city as a welcoming place, open to all people, and one that celebrates its diversity, with a nod to the neighborhood’s place in Houston’s LGBT history,” he said.

And in Washington, D.C., the Department of Transportation (DDOT) approved a request to paint a rainbow crosswalk at 17th Street NW to celebrate “LGBT Pride Month” and to coincide with the city’s pride parade.

A number of other cities already have permanent striped crosswalks in certain so-called “gayborhoods,” including in San Francisco (2014), West Hollywood (2012), Philadelphia (2015), Seattle (2015) and Miami Beach (2016).

Homosexual advocacy groups are pushing for crosswalks to now also be painted in New York City, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale and Milwaukee, circulating petitions calling for the pavement rainbow designs as a show of solidarity with homosexual residents.

“This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them,” reads one of the petitions.

However, not everyone thinks the crosswalks are a good idea, and some find it to be one more means of openly and unashamedly celebrating sin.

“You know, I don’t have a problem with your sexuality, but when you start pushing it down our throats, that’s when it [upsets me],” one commenter wrote.

“Personally, the painting of crosswalks is stupid as we don’t paint them for all the other events in our communities. If we truly want equality we need to stop placing people or groups above each other,” another opined.

“So then I guess it’s okay to have crosses for a crosswalk. Just saying,” a third remarked.

“And this is what your tax dollars go to. When the Lord comes, there is no rainbow in Hell,” another stated.

    “We must never forget that love defeats hate, and light defeats the darkness.” Ain’t it grand how biblical truths can be taken out of context to justify sexual immorality?

    • David

      The biblical truth is that it is absolutely ok to be homosexual. However, judging people because them being different goes against the core, foundational commandment of Loving your neighbour…

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      love worketh no ill to his neighbour ………. but homosexuals do NOTHING BUT worketh ill to his neighbour (“partner”)

      Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

    • DrewTwoFish

      Or how genocide, slavery and misogyny CAN be contextualized to explain them away?

      • Chet

        Sure, by those who don’t know what they believe nor why. Those learned in God’s Word are not fools nor deterred in sharing His indisputable truths…

        • DrewTwoFish

          Indisputable truths? Hardly.

          • Chet

            God Almighty is Truth and His Word is Truth from Genesis to Revelation. This Holy Bible has stood the test of time even as it’s mockers, scoffers and naysayers have died and gone on to eternal Hell. Nevertheless God’s love for all us sinners is made very clear in the willing sacrifice of His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, on Calvary’s Cross. Christ Jesus is the Word made flesh who dwelt among us, mankind, and He is able to save to the uttermost all who will but repent and come unto Him in faith believing the good news gospel. Jesus saves from the guttermost to the uttermost, no exceptions, no exemptions and no turn-aways.

            Choose wisely, Sir, as your own eternal destiny is at stake. It’ll be Heaven, for those saved by the precious blood of the Christ of Calvary or Hell for those who went about their own way till ultimately snapping-out into eternity, lost and undone. Such is the fate for one who never received Christ as his own personal Lord and Saviour… This, is real “choice”…

          • DrewTwoFish

            “Real” choice?

          • Chet

            Correct, real choice. One can choose to repent and come to Christ in faith believing. Upon doing so, all one’s innumerable sins are washed away in the precious blood of Christ of Calvary, never to be held against such an one again. Further, said sins are even then forgotten by the Almighty, something men can never attain to.

            No one ever earns salvation and forgiveness based on his supposed good works etc. Salvation is a free gift of God via Christ and He alone. This is what separates Christianity and one’s relationship with the living Lord from that of “religion” such as is almost daily observed in some good acts, others, pure evil, but all done to appease the object of their belief as men attempt to reach upwards in finding favor. In Christianity, God Almighty reaches down, down to the sinner, via His only begotten Son’s sacrificial death on Calvary, His burial and resurrection and soon coming again for His own…

            Choice is real, not imagined. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this, the judgement” Hebrews 9:27, Holy Bible… “So then, every one of us shall give account of himself to God” Romans 14:12… Receive Christ and be blessed evermore with a transformed life and eternity settled… With myriad blessings in between…

          • DrewTwoFish

            Thanks for the clarification. I’m afraid that I do regard it all as imaginary though I do appreciate your intentions.

  • Malleus

    Good grief, “pride” is the last word I would associate with them. Purely from a health standpoint, the harm they have done cannot even be calculated. So many lives destroyed, and the cost that will all pay in insurance is immeasurable.

    Btw, they claim to be “born gay.” Well who on earth is proud of something you have no control over? It would be like having a Blond Pride or Tall Pride event. Pride ought to be about accomplishing something positive for mankind.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      They’re “proud” because everyone used to tell them to be ashamed of who they are. I take it since they’re born that way, you don’t believe they should be ashamed of being gay?

      • Nedd Kareiva

        If they are born that way, then how is it possible that some walk away from the lifestyle?

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Simple. It isn’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            6,500 genes govern sex and its traits in the human body ….. so NOPE …. NOT SIMPLE ………….. and an idiotic statement to suggest it is …………..

          • Blake Paine

            You are misinterpreting that study. It only showed these genes were more active on average divided by sexes and you might be painting yourself into a corner.

            What if further study shows that homosexuals and transgender people are the subjects in this study that aren’t like the average? Would you admit that these things might have a genetic base?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope ………. wrong …… it is a complex mixture and you do not alter those genes by cutting things off and gluing things on and saying in your mind “i am in harmony now” …… IT IS A LIE …… surgery does not alter the DNA and genes …………..

          • Blake Paine

            The only difference is the amount of testosterone and how sensitive the cells are to it. A person could have developed with a neurology that goes either way. Surgery most definitely can affect the amount of testosterone.

            If you understood the subject better you wouldn’t be talking about it at all would be my guess – you are painting yourself into a corner.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            all baloney ……. not true science …… we are not VICTIMS of chemistry …… that is just another lie ………. peddle it elsewhere ……….

          • DrewTwoFish

            Ah yes. Shouts of “fake news” when you hear something you don’t like. Too easy.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          People can walk away from a lifestyle, sure. The thing is, your sexual orientation is not a “lifestyle”.

          • Nedd Kareiva

            How is it not? Do tell. Better yet, ask Stephen Bennett how he walked away from homosexuality, look him up.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            How is it not? Simple: People of any sexual orientation can and often do have very different lifestyles. Talking about the “homosexual lifestyle” makes it sound like you’re saying ALL homosexual people have the same lifestyle. Or, look at it this way, would you ever talk about the “heterosexual lifestyle” like that’s an actual thing?

            I don’t know about Stephen Bennett particularly, but I have heard stories like that, about people claiming to have “walked away from homosexuality”. I can understand that, people can feel like they shouldn’t be homosexual, or rather, they feel like they shouldn’t act on their homosexual orientation….the thing is, though, if they still are attracted to the same sex, they’re still homosexual. (or maybe bisexual, I suppose) What my point is, is that sexual orientation isn’t defined just by who you’re having sex with. If there were so, every virgin would be asexual.

          • Nedd Kareiva

            Well, we can get into semantics here if you like but simply put, homosexual men put their wienies in others’ posteriors while homo women try a faux version of coitus that way. Where they chose to align their particular body parts in the strict sense of the word defines hetero or homo. A better terms would be preferences & placement, I suppose.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            So…..what you really mean by the “homosexual lifestyle” is just homosexual activity? I guess I was mistaken, I thought you were actually talking about a lifestyle, (I don’t know where I would have gotten that crazy idea…) which includes quite a lot more than one’s choice of sexual partner(s), whether they be same-sex or not.

            But even if you’re just talking about sexual activities, you’re still wrong, because not all homosexual partners, or heterosexual partners for that matter, all do the same things. If, as you said, it’s all down to “where they choose to align their body parts”, then what about gay men that don’t have anal sex? Are they homosexual, by your definition? Or what about lesbians that don’t “try a faux version of coitus”, whatever you mean by that? I think all you’re doing here is demonstrating your own ignorance of the varied nature of human sexuality.

            And I’m sorry, but sexual orientation, or as you put it, “preference”, is what we’re talking about when we say “hetero” and “homo” and even “bi”. Like I was saying before about virgins….I knew I liked girls, aka was heterosexual, long before I ever actually had sex. I think the vast majority of people could say the same sort of thing about themselves.

          • Nedd Kareiva

            I see no reason to continue this discussion as you’re not going to persuade me to come to your side or vice versa. Your points make little sense to me so this conversation is concluded.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            “you’re not going to persuade me to come to your side or vice versa”

            Yeah, I kinda figured that much, but I thought at least we could have a little debate or something…that’s why I come here and say stuff, after all. Hmm

          • Nedd Kareiva

            Am willing to have a debate with you – IN PUBLIC. Forget going back & forth on Disqus. Accept or reject?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Yeah, I thought that was what we were already doing. This is a public forum, isn’t it? What else did you have in mind?

          • Nedd Kareiva

            You know doggone well what I’m referring to: IN PERSON. If you’re somewhere in the Midwest, I’ll meet you FACE TO FACE. PUBLIC SETTING. We debate the issue(s) & then bring for a public vote who won the debate. Debating on Disqus solves nothing cuz it’s all online & between the two exchanging arguments with other “observers” chiming in. Disqus doesn’t cut it. Game? Before you answer, I’ve taken on the ACLU & the National Safety Council (two separate forums, two separate issues). I’m not afraid to put up against anyone.

            If you’re outside the Midwest & have the guts to say YES, I may be able to accommodate you but it may be a while.

            So what do you say? Accept or reject?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Oh….okay, that was not where I thought you were going to be going with that one, I’ve got to admit. How would that even work? “Here’s two guys no one’s ever heard of outside a few people on a few websites, debating about homosexuality…” Oh yeah, sure the people will all flock to that one.

            Sorry, I’ll have to turn that offer down, I have neither the time nor the inclination…I mean, why would YOU even want to do that yourself? Travel maybe halfway across the country to meet up with someone you don’t even know to debate about this? And like I said, who the heck are we that we would even have anyone interested in the whole thing? And anyway….maybe I ain’t too bad at composing my thoughts and getting my point across on a computer, but in a public-speaking situation? NOT my strong point whatsoever.

          • Nedd Kareiva

            I at least appreciate your honesty. Admittedly, I make these challenges in part to intimidate someone to put their beliefs & views on the line. But since I can’t put a face & voice with these online discussions, meeting in person in a public setting is really the only genuine way to gauge public opinion. I’m very confident than when both sides make their cases for their convictions, I will win. Like you, I am not the most eloquent person in debating. But my command of the issues & whether they make good public policy compensates for any weaknesses I make in presenting my side.

            Contrary to what you may think of me as a Christian, I’m totally not anti-homosexual. I am Libertarian to a degree in that I believe people should feel free to make the associations & lifestyle they desire, as long as it does not interfere with another’s life, liberty & pursuit of happiness. However, I believe people should know the truth how these unhealthy associations potentially greatly shorten the lives of those who engage in these unnatural acts. I also fiercely oppose same sex adoption & shoving this stuff down our throats, including putting these rainbows on public property. But again, they are no less entitled to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness as expressly declared in our U.S. Constitution.

            This is my final discussion on the matter. Thanks for the exchange & have a good one.

        • james blue

          Other than who they are attracted to, what exactly is their “lifestyle”? Do they not work, pay taxes shop, eat, buy homes etc. like the rest of us?

          • Robert

            No they do those things queerly to.

          • james blue

            What the heck does that mean? Are you saying they bump ugly while shopping?

      • Robert

        Because they soon find out others are born to beat them up . and if they steal drugs they get hung on barb wire fences in Wyoming to.

      • Robert

        Get real what they do to each other is sick and disgusting . I can’t think of anything more repulsive murder is better thought of as it should be..If you think what they do is OK you need help mentally.

      • They are not born that way.

        • Jason Todd

          AC knows that.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            I’ll thank you not to put words into my mouth, please.

        • DrewTwoFish

          Really, Doug? Do tell us how it happened. Did we trip into the gay pool and stay in a little too long – you know, sort of like a gay marinade?

          • God said same sex sex aka homosexuality is a sin. God does not create sin nor does He tempt anyone to sin therefore no one is born that way.

          • DrewTwoFish

            You haven’t answered my question.

          • James 1:12-18New King James Version (NKJV)

            Loving God Under Trials

            12 Blessed is
            the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will
            receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love
            Him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

            16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 17 Every
            good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the
            Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
            18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Still not answering the question. Not surprised.

          • God has given you your answer……..”13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God

          • DrewTwoFish

            All you’re telling me is the temptation does not come from God. That does not tell me how a sexual orientation arises.

          • Your sexual orientation is the same for all of us and that is heterosexual. A desire to be homosexual is the demonic bait to engage in that particular sin. It is not the temptation from Satan that is the sin, it is giving into it that is the sin.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Do you understand what sexual orientation is? It is what you are innately attracted to. I have never been sexually attracted to women. How is it that my orientation is heterosexual?

            What is the motivation for “desiring” to be a homosexual?

          • You have been deceived by Satan as millions of others have been but God has given you a way out through His son Christ Jesus.

          • DrewTwoFish

            You’re attempting to used theology explain how socio-biological processes operate.

          • You’re attempting to use the flawed logic of sinful man to nullify the Word of God/Creator of man.

          • DrewTwoFish

            I did no such thing. I asked you how to explain to me how people come to be gay. I am asking for a psychological and/or biological explanation. Theology can’t explain everything. Theology doesn’t explain how ionic bonds form or the brain chemistry of someone with schizophrenia.

          • Again your flawed logic is looking for an answer where there is none.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Doug, just because you don’t have an answer for my question doesn’t mean there isn’t one. It’s OK to admit that you don’t know everything.

          • I gave you your answer which is the truth of God and His Holy Word and you rejected it. Have a nice day.

          • DrewTwoFish

            What I rejected was a theological answer to a biological question.

          • And who but our Creator would know more about us the created?

            Good day.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Oh for @##’s sake, if I asked you how to formulate medication for a cancer patient would you throw scripture at me then?

          • No because that is not a sin problem.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            And neither is homosexuality, Doug. Get it yet?

          • God has very plainly said in both the Old and New Covenants that same sex sex aka homosexuality is a sin.

            Get it yet?

          • Enrico Yourfault

            I used to believe as you do. Then it was pointed out to me that my views flew in the face of medical science, modern psychology and simply being a decent human being. I acknowledged that my religion was the cause of the problem. I wonder if you will ever awaken from your hateful charade. It causes nothing but pain and nothing good comes of it. It is certainly not what God wants.

          • As I have told you already I am not being hateful. God and His Holy Word is eternal, holy and true. Speaking God’s Word is not hate. I am not a religious person as I do not have a religion. I have a personal one on one relationship with Him as all true Christians do. All sin causes pain during and when you leave it to follow God through the Blood Atonement and Holy Spirit of Christ. I was a drunk and a drug addict for 20 years and I know that of which I speak to you now. I don’t care what the sin is, it always has an addictive quality that makes it painful to give up. As far as medical science, modern psychology and simply being a decent human being goes, any teaching and/or so called knowledge from man is wrong if it goes against God and His Word. As far as what God wants, He wants us because He loves us and that means He wants us to surrender our will and sins to Him so that we may have eternal life with Him and avoid His certain and justified wrath when it is time for us to be judged by Him. Give your self to Him through His son Christ Jesus while you still have His grace of time to do so.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            The words you use to homosexuals here are hateful. They are awful. Satanic this and satanic that. If you knew the first thing about elementary psychology you’d know it’s a perfectly normal variation of human sexuality, but no, you’d rather attribute everything to Satan. Maybe all those years of drinking and drugs have given you the kind of mind that tells you it’s just fine to willfully oppose what the medical world has been screaming at us for years and years, but then you would have no scapegoat to shake your finger at and moralize as you are doing. And what you have is a religion – by the dictionary definition. I’m not interested in what your personal relationship with your deity is.

          • And with that we are done. Good bye.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            Goodbye. And goodbye to you, Miss Checkmate.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Don’t you understand? Doug isn’t being hateful. He told you so. That should settle it. After all, Doug is an authority on these things.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            “Your sexual orientation is the same for all of us and that is heterosexual.”

            Nothing could be further from the truth. There are millions of homosexuals. Are you saying that they are all lying?

          • They have all been lied to by satan.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            This has nothing to do with Satan. Shame on you. You can’t just attribute Satan to all the things in life that you aren’t mature enough to deal with.

          • Satan is the father of lies and the source of all temptation that leads to sin.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            No one is lying here. Millions of homosexuals are not lying. And it takes a lot of nerve for you to tell them so.

          • Not as much nerve as you calling God a liar.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            I didn’t do that. Please stop bearing false witness.

          • Yes you did by denying the truth of God and His Holy Word.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            What would you know about God’s word? You keep trying to turn it into a message of hatred and intolerance.

          • That is a baseless and false accusation.

            Wanna try that again?

          • Enrico Yourfault

            Not necessary. You have an open profile. People can read for themselves your Christian love towards homosexuals, especially on the Faith & Religion Channel.

          • Please give verifiable quotes of my hate towards homosexuals.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            “There are no words to describe how this sickens me to my very core being
            and there are no words to describe how mad I get seeing and hearing
            this demonic garbage.”

            “Your sexual orientation is the same for all of us and that is heterosexual. A desire to be homosexual is the demonic bait to engage in that particular sin. It is not the temptation from Satan that is the sin, it is giving into it that is the sin.”

          • Sorry snowflake that is not hate. That is speaking truth without hate.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            No, I think most people would agree that it’s hate, snowflake.

          • Do your own laundry liar.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            Don’t tell me I’m a liar. I clicked on your profile and saw you trying to drag me into some nonsense on the Faith & Religion channel, a place I never bother with. Make your profile private if you don’t want to get caught with your hands in the cookie jar.

          • I don’t care what you see on my profile. If you don’t like it, don’t look.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            Not interested. I will call out faith-based hate regardless.

          • Of course you do because you do not know God and His Holy Word.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            I know God is about love, not about people who “make you sick to your stomach”. Your very language betrays your disdain for human beings.

          • What makes me sick to my stomach is the sexualization of children by perverted adults.

            God loves all of us but not our sins.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            There was no sexualization of children in that story. Several people have told you so.

            The child experienced no such thing. Dressing up is all he did.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Essentially, that is what he is saying. He is saying to all his gay brothers and sisters, “You are liars. I don’t believe what you are telling me about yourself. Your life doesn’t fit with my theology so I dismiss it.” And with this sh*tty attitude he expects to embrace his God. Amazing.

          • Enrico Yourfault

            And, like…how would HE know? There is an arrogance at work here that I see with some people who think that because they’ve adopted a faith, they have had these amazing gifts bestowed on them like the ability to read other people’s minds.

          • Jason Todd

            Dude, this isn’t the place where you will try to justify abnormal sexual behavior with fantasies shredded long ago.

            Homosexuals are not born that way. Period. End of discussion.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Dude, no where in this discussion did I attempt to justify any sexual behavior, abnormal or otherwise. How’s that “reading comprehension” thing coming along, Dude?

          • Jason Todd

            Homosexuality is a sexual behavior. Not an orientation.

            FAIL.

          • DrewTwoFish

            Well, there you go. Jason Todd has proclaimed it to be. Therefore it must be so. Good to know.

            All hail the Todd.

          • Jason Todd

            What is that supposed to be? Sarcasm?

            Let me make this plain: If homosexuals were indeed born that way, there’d be no need whatsoever to teach it to children.

            No. Need. What. So. Ever.

            And yet, that’s exactly what’s happening.

            One of the most blatant examples is the YouTube channel, “Queer Kids Stuff,” created by lesbian Lindsay Amer for an audience of three to seven year olds.

            Her videos consist of such subjects as “L is for Lesbian!” “I is for Intersex!” “B is for Bisexual!” “Unicorns are QUEER HORSES!!” and my personal favorite, “Consent.”

            Of course, nobody would be talking about consent in this kind of context unless you had something in mind. And it’s called “grooming.”

            So, please, go take your lies somewhere else.

            This always happens. I post a perfectly valid, peer-reviewed scientific paper and Amos criticizes it. I ask him to explain his criticism, and he responds with a dance where he criticizes science or peer review as a whole, complains that science needs to focus on God, or asserts that science that disagrees with the Bible is a priori wrong, or complains that the scientists are biased, or generally does everything BUT actually present some cogent criticism of the paper.

          • BravesFan

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            and i have told you before …. peer review means absolutely nothing ….. and you do not know if the paper is actually of any value or not except for the title ………. and arguing “my study is better than your study” …… STUPID waste of effort …… and IF you ever have any actual truth to present ….. maybe you will one day ………. because we are interested in truth …… and you never seem to have any …………

            Robbie Fox, the great 20th century editor of the Lancet, who was no admirer of peer review, wondered whether anybody would notice if he were to swap the piles marked `publish’ and `reject’. He also joked that the Lancet had a system of throwing a pile of papers down the stairs and publishing those that reached the bottom. When I was editor of the BMJ I was challenged by two of the cleverest researchers in Britain to publish an issue of the journal comprised only of papers that had failed peer review and see if anybody noticed. I wrote back `How do you know I haven’t already done it?’

            People have a great many fantasies about peer review, and one of the most powerful is that it is a highly objective, reliable, and consistent process. I regularly received letters from authors who were upset that the BMJ rejected their paper and then published what they thought to be a much inferior paper on the same subject. Always they saw something underhand. They found it hard to accept that peer review is a subjective and, therefore, inconsistent process. But it is probably unreasonable to expect it to be objective and consistent. If I ask people to rank painters like Titian, Tintoretto, Bellini, Carpaccio, and Veronese, I would never expect them to come up with the same order. A scientific study submitted to a medical journal may not be as complex a work as a Tintoretto altarpiece, but it is complex. Inevitably people will take different views on its strengths, weaknesses, and importance.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Okay, so what’s a better process than peer review?

            If there was a “gay gene,” you would be all over it and it would be headline news on every site in the world. But there’s not, which means that homosexuals are not “born that way.”

  • Libny G Pineda

    No matter how gays try to paint the rainbow, the truth is that they are using a symbol of the mercy of God and His promise to never bring another flood to the world because of sin. They have chosen the wrong symbol which is bringing judgement if they do not repent. God loves everyone and He is waiting for your repentance and your decision to live a Holy life. Nobody can live as God wants, therefore He sent His Son to die for your and mine sins so we could receive His forgiveness and Power to live holy.

    • Fang

      They don’t read the Bible and I’m sure they don’t know the Christian symbolism in the rainbow. For unbelievers the rainbow is supposed to symbolize diversity and inclusiveness. I think it started with “Reverend” Jesse Jackson with his group called the Rainbow Coalition (people of different races but all with the same ideology).

      • DrewTwoFish

        Why would you make that assumption? If most people in the USA are Christian even just nominally it stands to reason that most people have at least some knowledge of the Biblical stories be they gay, straight or whatever.

  • Nedd Kareiva

    Would the LGBFTQ “community” agree to allow the remainder of these cities’ sidewalks (the ones not with all the rainbow colors) to be limited to two colors, namely pink & light blue? I mean, since the vast majority of relationships are heterosexual with so many of those married and with kids, why not have the majority of America’s crosswalks properly represented with the pink & light blue? After all, since the homosexual community represents just 1-3% of Americans overall (depending on which poll you accept), we’ll give them their 1-3% of their crosswalks while we straight (and sane) ones get our 97-99%.

    Deal, guys (and gals)?

    • Michael C

      I just consulted with the High Counsel of the Radical Gay Agenda and our official position is that we’re totally fine with pink and blue crosswalks.

      • Blake Paine

        Trans pride is pink and blue so I don’t think the threat means what they thought it did.

        ‘Community Crosswalk’ programs exists in many cities, these are just some of the sidewalks these cities have.

        The telling point is that they are upset about what someone else is doing.

      • Ben Brigs

        Lol

      • Robert

        I wanted you to have the fun of doing it not me. I want to be safely away from the flying paint cans.

  • james blue

    As a statement I don’t agree with this, crosswalks, road marking etc. are there to serve a safety purpose, not to make a statement.

    That said, having seen the picture above they appear far more visible than the regular crossings and sans the message I think brighter crossing are not such a bad idea.

    • Bob Johnson

      Crosswalks exist at the corners of streets, marked or unmarked. Around where I live many crosswalks simply have inlaid bricks with no markings.

      • james blue

        Not sure what point or counter point you are trying to make.

  • Governmental Deception

    • GiveMeAsign

      “They” do pay taxes – so in essence “they” are paying for it along with all the non-decorative crosswalks used other places within the city in which they live. Frankly, if a rainbow colored crosswalk causes such hatred within you against other human beings, then I believe it is you who has the ugly problem.

      • Governmental Deception

        Hmm on one hand you have a point on the other hand this is something extra that cost extra they should fork it over in cash then lol.

  • This is despicable and demonic.

    • Robert

      Of course it is .Satan’s time is getting shorter by each day and he knows it. He having a good old time with this homosexual thing since people not guided by the bible don’t know what they think is loving is really hateful. Since this sort of thing is just loving people who are homosexuals all the way to hell. A place we should not even want our worst enemies to end up.

      • Enrico Yourfault

        Respectfully, this has nothing to do with Satan.

    • GiveMeAsign

      Boo! Now chill a bit and realize its just a colorful sidewalk. Despicable and demonic? Warped thinking there Doug.

      • Taking the sign of a covenant from God and perverting it to represent and celebrate sexual sin is despicable and demonic.

        • With all due respect, Doug, the rainbow is caused by the sun’s rays passing through droplets of water (rain), which acts just like a prism. It’s physics, not some god’s promise.

          As well, there is no objective evidence of any world wide flood, and at the alleged time of the alleged “flood” the Egyptian people–right next door–were doing just fine, before, during, and after.

          • Genesis 9:1-17New King James Version (NKJV)

            God’s Promise to Noah

            9 So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.[a] 2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand. 3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs. 4 But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. 5 Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning;
            from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of
            man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of
            man.

            6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood,
            By man his blood shall be shed;
            For in the image of God
            He made man.
            7 And as for you, be fruitful and multiply;
            Bring forth abundantly in the earth
            And multiply in it.”

            8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: 9 “And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants[b] after you, 10 and with every living creature that is
            with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you,
            of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. 11 Thus
            I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut
            off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to
            destroy the earth.”

            12 And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14 It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; 15 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 The
            rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the
            everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh
            that is on the earth.” 17 And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

          • Don’t you understand that what is written in the Bible has no impact on people who don’t believe it? You can quote scripture until the cows come home, but it has the same effect on a non-believer as if you had quoted from Grimms Fairy Tales.

            Why? For two reasons:

            1. I want to hear your personal opinions as to why you believe the Bible to be true, and;

            2. I once believed as you, but discovered by logic and education that the Bible is mostly a collection fabricated stories made up centuries before the advent of independent science.

            So, my question to you, good sir, is; Exactly why do you believe that the Bible is the word of a god?

          • I believe the Bible to be the Word of God because I believe in God.

          • But when did you make the decision to believe in God. What was your basis for believing?

          • Somewhere around 12 or 14 yrs old because of what I heard in church and from my parents.

          • So, basically, your parents raised you to be a Christian. Do you think that, had they been Muslim and lived in a predominantly Muslim community, they would have taught you to be a Muslim and sent you to a Mosque to further your education?

          • Your assumption is way off the mark. I did not become a Christian until my mid forties.

          • Then may I assume that after you had that introduction to Christianity by your parents and by the church to which you accompanied them on Sundays, at 14 you stopped going to church and didn’t return until your mid forties? Or, did you go to church all along, but was baptized or “reborn” in your mid 40s?

            But either way, what, besides what you had been taught, gave you evidence that God, as Christians see Him, exists?

            I appreciate your patience and civility. I’m always interested in the root cause of religious belief.

          • The proof of God is in His creation.

          • First, that isn’t proof, although I can understand why you think so.

            It is not proof because of other possible, and more reasonable, explanations. For example, here is an excerpt of a fictional conversation between a scientist and a preacher:

            The preacher:

            “Professor,” he said, apparently giving up on the End Times argument, “you wrote that, ‘blind religious faith is irrational, but then, so seems existence itself.’ So, you’re saying that your faith in evolution is just as irrational as my faith in God?”

            The scientist:

            “What I am saying is that, even as my mind reels in awe at existence itself—even as I am staggered by the breathtaking improbability of it all, I cannot conceive of a conscious, intelligent being at its foundation.

            “And, to assume that such an intelligent being—a god—is the cause of existence, is no answer at all, even if you do agree with the concept that this god caused Itself to come into existence. Whence did it come by all the knowledge it needed to create anything?

            “In my humble opinion, it is more reasonable to accept the possibility of the eternal existence of energy, manifesting in one form or another, or even to believe in energy as self-causing, than to suggest that a thinking mind, consisting of nothing, coming from nothing, popped out of nowhere, into nowhere, thought about it, then made it somewhere.

            “For there to be a thought, or even a popping into existence, logic would say there must first be motion, and that which is in motion would have to become organized. There must be a causal link from movement to organization before a thought can organize.

            “And, for there to be motion, of course, there must be something that moves, which would necessarily be something energetic. There is an energetic precondition, Reverend, for every thought and memory in your head.

            “So, to boil all this down to its base element, even though I believe both propositions—existence caused by a god, and existence caused by no god—are irrational, I think the existence of an eternal energy field is less so because we know the energy field exists. We are a part of it. We have the observable evidence of its existence.”

            Secondly, even if our existence were proof of a god, it would neither prove the existence of the god of the Bible (or any other “holy” book), nor explain how the god came into existence, and nor would it prove that there is only one god.

            So, again, why do you belive that the god of the Bible exists?

    With the availability of the new highly colored rubberized paving materials a number of cities have offered ‘Community Crosswalk’ programs that allow neighborhoods to customize crosswalks. There are the ones on gay neighborhoods, black ones, african ones, child entertaining ones near playgrounds and ones just for those trendy hipster areas that i know about.

    • Cady555

      Aint that so sweet?

      What kind of sick sadistic monster finds it “funny” to talk of burning people alive because they find the wrong people attractive? Seriously? Because they love the wrong type of person they should be burned alive?

      Why would you think that is good? Or right? Or amusing?

      And this is made even less “funny” by the fact that not that long ago christians did in fact punish homosexuals by tying them to wooden poles, setting them on fire, and watching as they died slowly in intense pain.

      Have you no decency?

      • RWH

        That’s why a lot of people see a lot of hypocrisy coming from people who claim that they love the sinner but hate the sin. Actually, they hate both and as a result, they think that yabruf’s comments are cute and funny.

        • Cady555

          People like to talk about how religion makes people moral. I think it does exactly the opposite. It gives people cover for their worst behavior and blinds them to atrocities. And they don’t even notice.

        In Leviticus God commands us to kill homosexuals.

        In 2nd Kings a righteous king knocks down the houses of the homosexuals for just being near God’s church.

        Have you no clue what is in God’s word?

        And the “wrong people” they find attractive would include little children you sicko.

        The fact that a child molesting perverted abomination that hates God will burn in the lake of fire is very good and right. Amusing not so much.
        I’d rather God take them from the earth sooner rather than later so less innocent children are harmed and decent people are not subjected to their filthy ways.

      Disgusting. As a Christian myself I have to say posts like that do a great disservice to Christians worldwide. No wonder people turn away from us and call us hateful. That’s exactly what your “funny little acronym” IS. You think that’s what Jesus wants…to see people burning?

  • Knowledge Transfer

    Well whose fault is all of this? Actually it isn’t nearly as much the fault of evil and the evil doers as it is the feckless and silent who hide behind the “love” word and the “judge not” falsehoods thus giving the evil doers free reign to create havoc and horror. Cowardice and Christianity are oxymoronic convoluted connections. Soldiers of Christ fight. Pampering perversion and pacifying perverts isn’t love. Making evil easy is worse then cowardice. It is beyond the power of description how a worthless and wicked 1.6% of the general population [homo men and homo women] have taken over and are rotting [as they always do] everything they touch when they are recipients of capitulation. Evil aggressors have always thrived on appeasement.

    Put a cross in a public space and guess what happens?

    You can celebrate sodomy in a public space, but not religion.

  • Shark88

    Such colored crosswalks violate federal law…plain and simple. Check Chapter 3G of the MUTCD & official responses from the FHWA regarding such. They are illegal and a potential liability to the public.

  • Shark88

    Such colored crosswalks are a violations of federal laws. check it out for your self in Section 3G of the MUTCD & related interpretations from the FHWA regarding such. Hopefully the feds will put a stop to the foolishness by the left.

      Not true:

      …Colored pavement can also be a purely aesthetic treatment. When used in this manner, colored pavement is not a traffic control device provided that it does not attempt to communicate with the motorist or incorporate elements of retroreflectorization.

      In the west coast states all road intersections are official crosswalks so mere decoration is also possible.

    upon reflection …. i would like to commend the people involved in getting this done ……. this is just a HUGE reminder of where the rainbow comes from …. from God …. and Gods promise to never bring a flood of WRATH AND JUDGEMENT against the people of earth in the form of a flood again …… because the next judgement will be FIRE ……… DUE TO MANS DEPRAVITY …… and our continually WICKED AND DECEITFUL HEART ….. and it is a HUGE REMINDER of just how badly WE ALL NEED CHRIST …….. OH ….. and PRAISE GOD that the lgbltqrstuvwxyz …. RECOGNIZE the NOAHIDE LAWS of UNIVERSAL MORALITY …… those being …..

    The seven Noahide laws as traditionally enumerated are the following:

    Do not deny God.
    Do not blaspheme God.
    Do not murder.
    Do not engage in illicit sexual relations.
    Do not steal.
    Do not eat from a live animal.
    Establish courts/legal system to ensure obedience to said laws.

  • SoundMind

    I hate this public display that celebrates lust and sodomy, and hope godly folks paint over it. Blue’s a good color…

    • GiveMeAsign

      Why is it the “godly people” always bring equality down to a sex act and then encourage breaking the law themselves by suggesting they come together to destroy public property? The beautiful rainbow crosswalk simply celebrates the diversity of our cities – where, hopefully, all can live in peace and love without fear of such hatred – over a sidewalk, a colorful one at that – get some perspective please.

      • SoundMind

        LOL, I’d call it improving public property, not destroying it! As it turns out, diversity works against unity.

        • Enrico Yourfault

          How about just accepting there are homosexuals in this world?

    How wonderful

  • More tax moneys to help promote a perverted and abominable lifestyle.

    Now, how do you suppose it’s come to this? You can thank both the constitutional framers and today’s Christians who are the 18th-century founding fathers most enthusiastic cheering section:

    “…3. Every problem America faces today can be traced back to the fact that the framers failed to expressly establish a government upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments. (Would infanticide and sodomy be tolerated, let alone financed by the government, if Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments were the law of the land? Would Islam be a looming threat to our peace and security if the First Amendment had been replaced with the First Commandment? Would Americans be in nearly as
    much debt if usury had been outlawed as a form of theft? Would crime be as rampant if “cruel and unusual punishment” had not been outlawed and criminals were instead punished with Yahweh’s altogether righteous judgments? Would we be on the fiscal cliff if we were taxed with a flat increase tax rather than a graduated income tax?)….

    “On February 27, 2009, James Dobson conceded that we have lost the culture wars. This is the consequence of Christians having spent the last two centuries lopping at the rotten branches of our culture’s corrupt tree while watering and fertilizing its roots.

    “We should lop away at the tree’s corrupt branches (infanticide, sodomy, the economy, etc.). However, until the root of these problems is Biblically addressed, we will never shut down the infanticide mills, we will never defeat the sodomites, and we will never fix the economy. In short, we will never win the culture wars. This issue is more than important for anyone concerned about God, our nation, and the future of our posterity, it’s the cutting- edge issue of our day….”

    Celebrating the minority lifestyle with public tax dollars is the most curious thing. Why are Churches and anyone else for that mater silent about the funding? Most municipalities are in violation of their own laws when spending tens of thousands of dollars to celebrate and exclusivity.

    Using government / taxpayer money to force acceptance and celebration of certain_sexual behavior on everyone else. Needs to be shut down.

    Adults continue to permanently turn away from homosexuality, even after decades of believing the lie they were “born that way”, proving it’s not genetic, but the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse.

    Homosexual behavior is most literally pointed out as a sin, and God has not changed on that regard. But if a person has those inclinations but does not act upon them, does not dwell in lust upon others, but is instead struggling against them to avoid them, then it’s not a sin. It’s just like sinful inclinations of any kind: it’s acting upon it when it becomes a sin.

    And this is what God says about sin and specifically the behavior of homosexuality:

    Romans 1:26-27 ”For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their_lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ”Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [men who willingly take on the part of a “woman” with another man], nor abusers of themselves with mankind [s odomites], (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

    1 Timothy 1:9-10 ”Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) For_whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind [s odomites], for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;”

    Jude 1:7 ”Even as_Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

    Luke 17:29 ”[Jesus said] But the same day that Lot went out of_Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”

    Matthew 19:4-6 ”And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (5) And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (6) Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

    Jesus made it quite clear God made us male and female so that a man will leave his father and mother (not two fathers, not three mothers and so on) and cleave onto his wife (not his husband and so on).

    The Word of God rebukes us all – even if we all try to say we don’t believe the Bible, the very Word of God will be our judge when we face Him. And God is a righteous judge and will judge us all – not turn a blind eye to our sin. Do not be deceived by the world: it’s God we will have to convince that His word was a lie, not men. What happened in Noah’s day when the entire world rejected God? Did God spare them because there were so many? No – they all perished except for Noah and his family!

    Proverbs 9:10 ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

    God spared not His chosen people – we are kidding ourselves if we think He will spare the United States of America if we choose to blatantly turn away from Him.

    Jeremiah 12:17 ”But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.”

    Luke 17:28-30 “So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; (29) but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed them all. (30) Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

    Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [suppress] the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, m urder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    The entire Bible points out men having_sex with men is an abomination. Likewise woman having_sex with women. It’s not just Paul that pointed it out.

    Genesis 19:4-13 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of S odom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them [men wanting to have_sex with men].

    And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing [he offers his daughters to be_raped to keep them from having_sex with another man – shows_rape is not the issue but male on male_sex]; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

    And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

    And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.”

    These two messengers were sent to destroy that place before the event where they tried to_rape these messengers.

    Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

    Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination …”

    Even cross-dressing is an abomination:

    Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

    Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no_whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a s odomite of the sons of Israel.”

    1 Kings 22:46 “And the remnant of the s odomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.”

    1 Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the s odomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.”

    2 Kings 23:7 “And he brake down the houses of the s odomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister S odom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

    And the “pride” parades about homosexuality are more of the same.

    Matthew 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

    Not father and father. Not mother and mother. Not his husband.

    And only two people of opposite gender can become “one flesh”.

    Live forever, people – not temporarily only to be cast out for living for the things of this world.

    May God/Jesus Christ be glorified!

  • This is a wonderful display of respect and acceptance for a significant portion of our society that has been suppressed, repressed, oppressed, and sometimes brutalized by our “Christian” community (as some “Christians” are now doing to American Muslims). Fortunately, many good Christians are now accepting diversity because they’ve listened to the arguments (debates) and realize that:

    1. What homosexuals legally do has no effect whatsoever on straight folk’s religious preferences in worship;

    2. They, as a group, harm no one;

    3. It is ethically (morally) wrong to deny whole groups of people the right to seek happiness by marrying those they love and with whom they want to spend the rest of their lives in peace and love, and;

    4. We should all live and let live, doing unto others was we would have them do unto us.

    5. It is well past time that our society should recognize and appreciate a significant portion of our society that has been demonized for no reason other than not following fundamentalist, religious stricture (in the U.S., it is their right to reject any religious views).
