I think its important to set you misguided homosexuals straight, so to speak, on the issue of marriage. As pointed out by Mike Huckabee, your homosexual attempts to undermine traditional marriage and destroy civilization cannot be allowed to go unchallenged.

So, I present to you 10 Reason Why Gay Marriage Should Be Illegal:

I just finish writing about this extensively myself! (cute boy pic included)...lol


I was a Theology minor so I looked at it differently. I won't bore you all with the details but what always bothers me about Mike is that he's clearly not reading his own bible.

I think this video is great! It's good to see a mirror held up to the ridiculous arguments made against Gay Marriage.

Plus, I totally love the stick figures doing it.

I seem to remember seeing this list before, probably as a chain email. It's great, but I think a bit stale. Still it's great to see it done in video.

You're just not cool! You're not hip! That's so 'last year,'man.

How old are you, Rebecca? I could understand a comment like that if you were 16...0r 25. You expect comments like that from tweens because they're not old enough to know any better...

What an adolescent thing to to say.

"I think this video is great! It's good to see a mirror held up to the ridiculous arguments made against Gay Marriage."

At least Waymon gets the point of the post!

No matter how "uncool" and not "with the times" and what the "kids" are doing these days it might seem.

So much for "open discourse."

Apparently, you have to be hip in order to participate.

Yeah, I've seen this around for a few years. I'd like to see the list and responses get updated to respond to the Religious Right's new developments in terms of arguments against same-sex marriage....

Oh, wait, they don't have anything new. My bad.

I wonder why the voice-over chose to do a fake country accent.

Because that would prove....what?

First, I wanted to apologise. My comments were written quickly because I thought I was losing my internet connection.

The thing that concerns me about a comment like rebecca's (and, in fact, my own comment) is what I call the "internet attitude." For example, A few weeks ago I cross-posted my piece on Bhutto's assassination at my diary on Daily Kos. There was, at the time, a typo (the word "assassination" was spelled "assissination"). The good readers at Daily Kos nailed me for the error, implying that typos and/or bad spelling are a sign of lower intelligence. Someone pointed out the error, suggested a better title-- one that better reflected the content of the piece. I agreed, thanked the person, made the changes and corrections and went to lunch. As a former teacher of students with learning disabilities and a man with cerebral palsy (the result being that I type with one hand) I know from experience that there are a myriad of reasons for bad spelling, including truly not knowing how a word is spelled. Not knowing how a word is spelled is not a sign of low intelligence, spelling being mostly a matter of memorization (people often "forget" how to spell a word). Spelling is, in fact, one of the easiest and most common errors to correct. I know that Rebecca's comment is very different and does not imply the same thing in any way. But as a middle school English teacher I am constantly being told that I somehow have to get my students involved in the internet and using interractive text (granted most of them already are). To my knowledge, blogging on a site like Blogger, perhaps a social-networking like MySpace (that's not to mention all the issues around that) or Wikispaces (which we used last summer) is the only way to do this. This places my students in the internet environment (yes, I know they're already there) where their every error (my dyslexic student won't be avoid them) or perceived internet social faux pas will be judged rather harshly.

Some might say that's a good. I know my experience with blogging has certainly madew me re-examine my own writing & it's shortcomings...many of which I wasn't aware of. I like that. I'd like my students to experience that. But I hesitate.

So...for me something like that is sensitive. When I see a comment like Rebecca's I cringe because I think of my students and worry how I will ever teach them to work in an interractive textual environment.

Sorry to be so long-winded.

Many typos there...my apology

This is Gay People should have equal rights gay or strait same as smokers should have equal rights as none smokers this is 1 big pile of bullcrap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
