    When asked during the recent Miss USA pageant if she thought the other states should follow Vermont in gay marriage she said she was brought up with the idea of a marriage being between a man and a woman. Come run for Miss Texas!

    Good for Miss California, I'm happy to see some people still have morals and will not let the drive by media talk the morals out of them. And yes Miss California would look good in Texas.:happy0001:

    If you don't want to hear someone's opinion, don't ask em. If you want them to say what you want to hear, pull the pole out for 3 seconds and tell them what to say.

    Let's be a bit more respectful of gays. We have members that are gay / bisexual on the forum that don't care to be referred to as a "pole smoker".

    You aren't offending me, but I am simply stating that there are more eloquent ways of voicing one's opinion without the "pole smoker" comment.

    My comment was more directed towards Big Country referring to them, gays, as being pole smokers. You can call Perez Hilton whatever you want. That guy is just an attention whore, and I hate his name. He also doesn't post on the forum, and I would ban him if he did.

    You're right Texas1911, I quoted THE PHRASE. And if anyone was offended, I'll extend the same offer that High-Cap 1911 did, A beer and a formal apology. The comment was not to offend anyone rather to illustrate the fact that had it been a gay woman answering questions and a straight man that told her she lost the crown, it would have been viewed as bigotry. But if a gay person does it to a straight person everyone is perfectly fine with that? If you are straight and you put down someone else's way of life you're evil, but if you happen to be gay and put down someones beliefs it is okay. And I see a real problem with that. So I'm very sorry if you're a gay person and reading this, I do not mean to put you down in any way, I just want to everyone to respect everyone else equally. And as soon as I post this apology statement I will go edit the original post.

    On a side note:

    I'm not concerned with offending anyone. However, that doesn't give me free reign to be obnoxious, inconsiderate, or mean. I won't apologize, but I will try to be a better member of the community.

    The problem lies with the phrase used to describe homosexual people. And I do not agree with being gay or gay marriage, I should not have used the derogatory comment in my post. That is why I apologized
    PHP:
     MY comment was directed more towards Big Country
    So tell me Texas1911 how that was more directed toward me. You have yet to do that. I'm not in anyway mad, just wondering how you came to that conclusion.
    Never mind I found what you were referring to
