10 things we heard

“I’m still trying to figure out how gay people getting hitched means the end of world. Of course, this is the same people that refute scientific evidence that the world is warming with a passage from the bible.”

—Grant Isenhour, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“I don’t see the correlation between drug abuse, pedophilia and homosexuality?”

—Cory Brown, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“It does not take a man and a woman to raise a happy family. That’s not the recipe for success. A happy family must have love, no matter the gender of the parents.”

—Arianna Johnson, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“That’s enough, I’ve seen enough. There are so many holes in their arguments, it’s a cobweb. I live in Canada; one of the countries who has embraced marriage equity. If the groundhogs poke their heads out once in awhile, they’ll see how thin these arguments really are. Nice graphics though. I recommend a counter video in the same graphic and musical treatment, that lays to rest this thinly veiled trash. My spouse is a video editor, he would say, ‘you can put a pretty bow on poo… but it’s still poo.’”

— Roberto Ascencio Rojas, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“Today I learned that my marriage is a ‘behavior.’”

—Maria Kogan, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“It shocks me to think that people actually think like this. I don’t get what is so wrong about making everyone equal regardless of sexual orientation, race, age, gender etc. Since when has ‘natural marriage’ ever benefited society? Making men civilized? What kind of bullshit is that?”

— Kasy Woodward, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

People that don’t take science seriously are a threat to our freedoms. Ironic too, because most of them claim they want government out of their lives. Besides, where is the fervor for divorcees and horrible marriages? Shouldn’t they be crucified, too?”

—Marly Mary Green, on an advertisement released by an anti-gay group comparing homosexuality to pedophilia

“I am very saddened to hear a man I used to think highly off make such ridiculous comments. Could I live celibate for my entire life? Yes, I suppose I could try. But who would want to do that? Ask a Catholic priest how well that works. It’s unnatural to expect human being to be celibate. We, in part, are sexual beings and to pretend God himself didn’t put those urges in us is ignorant, to say the least! I don’t apologize for how God created me and I’ll be damned if celibacy is the answer.”

—Lance Kocherhans, on a Mormon official calling gay marriage a ‘social experiment’

“Comments like this are an absolute joke. This is why so many gay and lesbian people go through such a miserable life. Why should they be lonely and not entitled to the same type of love and companionship as straight people just because they are born differently? Would we rather they live miserable and lonely lives or take their own lives instead of leading happy, productive lives? Shame on you Dallin Oaks.”

—David Taylor Bocanegra, on a Mormon official calling gay marriage a ‘social experiment’

“Aren’t we in 2012? What a ‘back of the bus’ attitude! We need a drag queen Harriet Tubman!”

—Mike Hicks-Graham, on a Mormon official calling gay marriage a ‘social experiment’
