Dalai Lama comes out in support of gay marriage

The Dalai Lama has come out in support of gay marriage, saying it was “OK” and a personal affair for people of the same sex to commit to each other.
“If two people… really feel that way … and both sides fully agree, then okay,” the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said on Ora.tv’s Larry King Now show.
GOOD — SOMEONE GO FUCK HIM IN HIS FLAT FLABBY ASS
Pasta, you may not agree with the Dalai Lama and however many people support gay marriage, but you’re not going to win yourself allies by insulting them and wishing ill upon them.
I think we need to have discussions about issues, but you screaming (using all-caps bolded) insults and slurs isn’t contributing to any discussion whatsoever. It’s just you screaming, and it comes off to others as hatred and intolerance. Most people don’t want to be associated with that.
For example, your post about Jason Collins. I think too much is being made over his sexuality and his career. I think we’re wimping out as a mass-media culture in the name of political correctness. But you just rail about what’s wrong with our society and degrade it with hateful language, and I never see you offer positive, uplifting alternatives or ideas.
If you can’t offer something positive for your opposition to be swayed to, you will not change any minds; you will only reinforce the status quo, the very thing you are decrying. And then you wonder why your side loses elections, media wars, culture wars, and so on, and you wonder why society continues to degrade. You are doing nothing to stop it; you in fact are encouraging it. So I suggest that you stop screaming and start having conversations.
You don’t have to take my advice if you don’t want to; then again, I also don’t have to keep you on my dashboard either. Your call.
WagerOn— I’m insulting or wishing ill will? I said for someone to fuck Lama in his fat, flabby ass! Those that agree with same-sex marriage, by definition, should applaud, if not get a little aroused by my comment.
However, I understand what you mean - that you “get more bees from honey than vinegar” - but we are not debating policy. This is a cultural shift from the tiny minority that is riding roughshod over the majority, in the same vein as white guilt. It’s a rouse.
History didn’t begin in the year 2000, and these issues that you want to discuss, have already been defined thousands of years ago. Liberals (Jews) have been trying to break down every establishment, tradition, and institution that promotes the nuclear family because they pose a bigger threat to their power. Look how they unfairly treat Catholics…and now Lama is going to chime in?
As I said in my Jason Collins comment, shame on you if you are hetero male, because you are cheering on the end of your demise. So I am pissed, as you should be. My ‘positive’ solution is to stop buying into the surface message and dig a little deeper as to what the true intention is.
Even Gays and Lesbians, who don’t even get along with each other, hate that they’ve been hijacked by Liberals, that are only interested in victimizing, prospering, and destroying.
What kind of degenerate country do you want your kids to grow up in? I bet you haven’t even asked yourself that question yet.
So my “screaming”, as you put it, is to WAKE THE FUCK UP before it’s too late. Sometimes harshness is the only thing that gets people’s attention, especially those that are distracted by emotions and shiny objects, …….because history has proven that I am right.
“History didn’t begin in the year 2000, and these issues that you want to discuss, have already been defined thousands of years ago.”
So what, are we supposed to backpedal on slavery and women’s rights too? Those issues were “defined” two thousand years ago right alongside the Jewish execution of gays and the Roman execution of Christians. (Also the world was flat, not round; and the sun orbited the Earth, not the other way around.)
You can’t cherry-pick which freedoms apply to which people, because by definition that is not freedom, and as I’ve discussed in other posts regard social conservatism, when you give modern Americans the choice to give up their freedoms or to keep them, they’re going to keep them. That’s why conservatives have lost in recent years whenever the issue comes to abortion. Whether you like it or not (and I don’t like it myself), people want to make that choice for themselves and will vote in liberals who will allow them to make that choice over conservatives who would deny them that choice, even though the liberals are destroying America.
"Liberals (Jews) have been trying to break down every establishment, tradition, and institution that promotes the nuclear family because they pose a bigger threat to their power.”
Hi, um, when it comes to the American political binary, which side is supporting Israel as a Jewish state? Conservatives. Which side is for neutering Israel’s defensive capabilities and borders? Liberals. Which side is appeasing the radical Muslims of the Middle East who have openly declared their wish and intent to destroy Israel? Liberals. So why in the hell would "Liberals (Jews)" support the destruction of their home and only nation?
It would be analogous of me to say “When it comes to economic policy, liberals (blacks and women) are looking for hand-outs.” It’s a generalization of an entire race and gender; it disregards any individual who might in fact be opposed to said policies.
It’s honestly just wrong (both factually and morally) to say.
"As I said in my Jason Collins comment, shame on you if you are hetero male, because you are cheering on the end of your demise."
I bet the KKK said “shame on you if you are white because you are cheering for your own demise” first when the slaves were liberated, and then when Jim Crow laws were struck down. If we can agree that my parallel is racist hatred, wouldn’t that make your original comment blind homophobia?
"Even Gays and Lesbians, who don’t even get along with each other"
Uh-huh. Because every attempt to hold a rally for same-sex marriages has ended with infighting between the gays and the lesbians. There definitely is no unity across the homosexual front, at all, ever.
"Even Gays and Lesbians […] hate that they’ve been hijacked by Liberals"
Which is precisely why they’ve been voting conservative since the 90’s when liberals really began championing the moveme—wait no they haven’t. Also I find your lack of sources disturbing.
"What kind of degenerate country do you want your kids to grow up in? I bet you haven’t even asked yourself that question yet."
You’re right; I haven’t asked myself that question really. Why? Because what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes is not of my god-damn business, mostly because I know I wouldn’t appreciate someone horning in on my sex life either. Golden Rule much?
Besides, what do you propose we do even if gay marriage were banned? Would you advocate the use of police to drag off gays who continued to sleep together? If so, I would fight you to my dying breath, because that’s not freedom. We should have learned it from Edward Snowden: giving government the power to watch and listen to us corrupted the NSA, who is way off its original mandate listening to all of America. What guarantee do you have that whatever power you give to government to enforce your view, won’t be turned against you?
"because history has proven that I am right.”
Wait, jump back to my first response there: history says we were wrong to enslave people and prevent women from having rights of freedom and choice in their lives (when I say “choice” I mean careers and voting). And we’re generally doing okay now that we haven’t had slaves or state-enforced racial or gender oppression… so what part of history are you referring to “proving you right”?
"I said for someone to fuck Lama in his fat, flabby ass! Those that agree with same-sex marriage, by definition, should applaud, if not get a little aroused by my comment."
Because every advocate of gay marriage wants to have gay sex. So if I can find a gay person who says “straight people should be able to marry”, he really wants straight sex. You do realize it’s possible to advocate for something without partaking of it yourself?
Your fallacy-laden statements are just so illogical and frankly offensive that you have earned my unfollow. I don’t need to see your ignorance and offensiveness on my dashboard. Your concern for our country is legitimate… your closed-mindedness is not.
