  • Probably shouldn't leave a comment unless I have time for a debate.

  • Being a very christian person, I'm going to bring up the bible to support my answer, where does it say anything in the bible about race? Race is not mentioned in the bible, homosexuality is.

  • It is illegal to discriminate based on the color of skin. So while I do understand that there are many issues of racism in America, there are far too much more issues of homophobia in the world.

How bout discrimination against national socialists
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T23:53:47.0927153-05:00
@heilxx How bout no.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T23:54:14.2394115-05:00
@heil26 also, I give you the day before you're banned again.
briantheliberal says2015-04-04T23:55:04.2748948-05:00
Both are equally evil. This is coming from an LGBT person of color.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T23:57:42.2786626-05:00
@brian Meh, that's why I couldn't vote. Also, you're gay?
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T23:59:12.1434521-05:00
@brian someone disagree's with us. Of course it's future president.
heil26 says2015-04-05T00:01:33.2574721-05:00
Perhaps no one in school teaches you to discriminate against those 2 groups, but perhaps school teaches you to discriminate against me for my ideology
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T00:03:46.0659986-05:00
@heil nah, I'm not discriminating. I see your polls, and you're a racist bigot.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-05T00:07:43.5885534-05:00
I voted the way I did cause there are less gays then blacks and blacks have endured discrimination for far too long. I chose the less of the two evils.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-05T00:08:37.1582666-05:00
Just cause I voted doesn't mean I disgaree, I try to vote in every poll there is. But I would never agree with descrimination, I stand for freedom.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T00:12:16.4653714-05:00
@futurepresident Ah, ok sorry.
Reeseroni says2015-04-05T00:14:29.3997813-05:00
Black is a race. Gay is a sexuality. There are more blacks than gays. Beat down the least you can.
briantheliberal says2015-04-05T00:22:24.7744560-05:00
Oh god, where do I even begin... First of all, heil, discriminating against a bigoted ideology is in no way comparable to discriminating against someone based on WHO THEY ARE, something they have absolutely no control over. You choose to be bigoted, and your hateful ideologies have a negative impact on the society we live in, that's why it's shunned. Futurepresident, both blacks and homosexuals have been oppressed for centuries. The only difference is, one can hide their sexual orientation, you cannot hide the color of your skin which is why discriminating against someone based on race is more taboo. That and no modern religion directly condemns people for being black (except Mormonism I believe) so discriminating against gays is more tolerated because of this. Reeseroni, nobody knows how many gay people actually exists, but even if there aren't as many gays as there are blacks, it's still wrong. Numbers don't actually mean anything when discussing human rights.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T00:24:03.3495922-05:00
@brian spot on!
Reeseroni says2015-04-05T00:24:37.8309933-05:00
You are right, numbers do not mean anything, but depending on how many people you discriminate against, there will be more or less backfire.
briantheliberal says2015-04-05T00:38:14.6605528-05:00
Reeseroni, still not entirely accurate. Let's put it this way. There are less gay people in America compared to black people (Let's just assume this is true). Discrimination against gay people doesn't just affect gay people, it affects their families, their friends, their children, and society as a whole, gay or not. Ever heard of Alan Turing? He was a British pioneering computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner. Many consider him to the the "father of computer technology" and he was a brilliant man who fought for us during WWII. His life was cut tragically short due to the discrimination he faced from the homophobic society he lived in. Imagine if he was able to live his full life, how advanced technology would be thanks to his innovations and contributions he made to science and technology, something that is important to every person in the world. Of course, they don't teach you these things in school because the teaching of gay history is still shunned and suppressed by people who don't want children to realize how their lives are positively affected by gay people. But you get the point.

Percent of non-straits in America is 3.4%. Percent of African Americans in America is 13.2%.

People are born black and can't change that, sexuality is based on that person's experiences in my opinion.

^ Your opinion is not based on fact.

"Your opinion is not based on fact." People can be born with serial killer DNA and develop a brain similar to a serial killer yet they don't kill. Effectively they choose not to be a serial killer even though they were born with it.
Reeseroni says2015-04-05T13:50:46.8255925-05:00
@briantheliberal I appreciate your examples, but I do not fully believe that gays can benefit us any better than straights. Sexuality does not define a person, and to be honest, we should not discriminate against any. Discrimination can cost the lives of great people, but in the long run--the more people you discriminate against, the more allies they may have, which can lead into various results i.e. a major war. If you discriminate against the lesser of the two, there is a smaller capability that they may spark a war or great dispute that could be tragic to many people. You can never estimate the impact that a group may have made on a population, so to be safe-- we need to be peacemakers, or the closest to them we can be.

Changed me vote. Misread the title.

@notforred apparently you never read you're bible. Did you know, that people used the bible to keep segregation? I can give you the verses, but only if you ask nicely without a hint of insult, and submit to my time machine!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T19:41:44.7210370-05:00
You don't have a time machine because if you did you would have destroyed the universe.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-07T20:28:56.3463068-05:00
@mathgeek I can only observe the past.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T20:30:00.6025459-05:00
Then it isn't a time machine, it is a time vision machine, it doesn't go back in time if you only can observe in it.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-07T20:32:51.5921403-05:00
@mathgeek It's a time machine because I actually travel through time, I just can't interact with it. Submit or else you will never become a god!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T20:33:55.3156321-05:00
If you time traveled and didn't interact you would still destroy the universe, the mere act of time travel destroys everything.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-07T21:08:14.0481787-05:00
@mathgeek My time machine works in mysterious ways!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T21:11:59.9072968-05:00
Well it can't time travel without destroying the universe, so if it can't time travel, it isn't a time machine.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-07T21:23:28.7064395-05:00
@mathgeek incorrect. My time machine was specially designed to not destroy the universe, while travelling through time. It's a mystery how it works, but it does.

Homosexuality is nature's design to control overbreeding. Sadly, when it comes to being discriminated and terminated from employment gay people don't have a case. Here's why: my best friend was told by his boss he was terminated for being gay. I took him down to the Miami EEOC to file a discrimination charge against his employer and this is what the investigator said: EEOC only covers age, sex, disability, and race...Period! The investigator said they can't do anything for sexual preferences because no one can prove that they are gay. And that my friend got fired legally because bringing up sexual preferences at work is against their rules. It's actually sexual herassment. Even a gay marriage license is not proof of being gay. Bet that shocked you...Me too.
