    Well, you know that this is going to end the world as we know it.

    I think this is a good and happy thing. NOTHING is strange or "ill" about being gay, or anything but straight.

    barny Frank and his "girlfriend" are not married since marriage is only between one man and one woman. the fact that two perverts got a piece of paper that says so is irrelevant. Homosexual "love" life is disgusting to say the least.

    Then Wear a mask. Then you won't see anything that 'defiles' you, and no one will have to see you and feel de-flied ( and I meant to say 'flied, as in zipper, since your so devastated about what's under their zipper..

    Barney Frank in my opinion was a great Democratic Congressman, I like what he stands for politically. However, when it comes to couples, in my view and from my understanding and opinion, a couple constitutes a man and a woman, not a man and a man.

    Great congressman? You don't remember him saying there is no crisis?
  • Max7 teigan 2012/07/12 02:48:33

    You stick to what you want, and I'll repeat that as a Congressman I liked him. If I had a dollar for evrytime Cheney and Bush screwed up, I'd be wealthy.

    So you like the fact that he denied there was a crisis looming. You like that he sat by and allowed it to happen? I would prefer to have someone that looks out for the American people. Thank you Barney Frank for not running again. His failure to listen and acknowlege the problem contributed to the crash of the housing market. But hey, give em a pass because he's a liberal.

    I know right?! And it's not like MY sexual orientation has anything to do with the thread we're on. I just believe that gay/bi/non-straight people are normal and fully capable of achieving anything they want, which is why Barney Frank being the first gay and married congressman doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

    But instead, he wants to tell me what MY sexual orientation is... maybe he wishes I was all the way gay cuz he wants me xD
    lol, just kidding, but you really gotta wonder why these people can be so fixated on labeling others....

    good for you Granny Atheist, I'm glad you find things troubling, it show that your mind is still struggling on it's own to achieve Something

    Do you say the same thing when they report the marriages of straight celebrities and politicians?
  • us Grandbr... 2012/07/12 02:18:53

    If it a celebrities I don't really follow who marries who, As for Politicians, i don't know
    who married to who.

    Sure you do. Newt Gingrich has been married too many times for you to have never heard about it. Is the fact that his marriages were widely reported evidence of him "showing off" too?

    Gay or straight, Barney Frank should be sitting in a cell beside Bernie M for the fraud he committed via Fannie and Freddie.
