Christians commit plenty of violence in the name of their religion. May not be suicide bombers, but ask your local abortion doctor what the 90s were like for him.

You can say there's no reasoning with me, in response to me saying it to you, but can you give me one non-bigoted reason to complain about gay marriage? Or, in the case of this, gay gaming conferences? How many people complain about the other themed gaming conferences? I already posted a Christian one, where are the pitchforks for that.

What's worse, RollingThunder, is you keep saying "I don't mind this" or "I don't mind that," but then what are you arguing with me about? About RailWizard's right to be annoyed by this? No one is saying he doesn't have the right, nor are we saying he doesn't have the right to call homosexuality a fetish. We're saying he's an idiot for doing so and clearly has some kind of anti-gay agenda. He denies it, but for godssake he called it a fetish. Maybe being a lefty is also a fetish?

This is what I mean by twisting. Name one instance where I said I'm against gay marriage? I'll give you a hint, I never said that. I was nothing more than debating the need for this particular con since I don't remember reading any outbreak of anti gay slurs at gaming conventions in the past. Not from E3, or PAX, or the Tokyo game show etc etc. Hell I live in Mass, gay marriage is legal here and it doesn't bother me one way or another because 1. it's none of my business what two people do in the privacy of their homes. 2. What does it bother me if same sex couples want to file joint taxes (the most likely real reason the gay community is pushing so hard to redefine marriage)

But hey apparently there's a need to shed light that there are indeed gay gamers. YAY! Lets throw them a ticker tape parade too.
