Hollywood, and a majority of Americans. Romney's homophobic position is that of a rapidly dwindling minority. He really doesn't want to let homosexuality remain an issue in front of the voters.

I don't think homosexuality is the issue, it seems to be marriage.

I don't care if a guy marries his dog, it won't affect my marriage.

JFYI homophobic is not real. One guy ( George Weinberg) made it up. It has no real meaning. No one dislikes or is scared of gays because they are afraid they might be one. It was a crock when he invented the word and it still is. It has no more real meaning then Normalphobic....If anything Normalphobic is more likely. It is just used to intimidate people in hopes of shutting them up. Gays have a mental sexual dysfunction and our focus should be on finding a cure not giving them special rights. That lifestyle is very unhealthy for the ones it victimizes and society as a whole. Gays are 7 times more likely to have a sexually transmitted disease. It is pretty obvious to anyone who's judgment is not clouded by their attempt to be Politically Correct....which is the definition of oxymoron.

Gay marriage does affect us all by the way. Gays are 7 times more likely to have health problems which translates to higher insurance cost across the board should insurance companies ever be forced to insure a gays partner.30 years ago when gays first began this marriage quest shared insurance was the reason even they gave for wanting it. That didn't work so they dropped that and are using "Rights" now instead. The problem for insurance companies is there is no way they can admit they need a higher premium to cover the additional risks associated with the gay lifestyle like they do for smokers...they gays would sue for discrimination so those higher costs will have to be spread out over all insures. This is just one of many examples of how gay marriage would affect us all that some of you just refuse to see.

Gays already have the same right to marry anyway. Any gay man who wishes to marry a woman straight or gay is free to do so. One man ....one woman.

Basically, you don't know what you're talking about.

Prove it. Prove that "anyone" can put "anything" they want in there. Go ahead, change this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homophobia

Make that page reflect your own opinions on that term. Let's see how successful your changes are.

A word in the English language means what a consensus of English speakers want it to mean. The word "homophobia" has a clear meaning and describes a real concept.

You argued: "No one dislikes or is scared of gays because they are afraid they might be one." People have argued that they are, in fact, homophobic and because they are homophobic their otherwise criminal behavior should be excused. Basically, they argued that they themselves were mentally dysfunctional and were incapable of behaving like any reasonable person would after observing homosexual behavior.

Really? That's your proof? People blame drugs for their crimes too...people just don't want to go to jail when they get into trouble so they say whatever....gee wiz....how old are you?
I did change wilki but I didn't sign up first so it undid it. I would have to start an account first then figure out how to word it so the censors don't automatically remove it but I could...so can you..anyone can. Of course then the next person who reads it could change it again. How long it would stay up is anyone guess but that is how wilki works. Check out the one on obummer 10 times a day and watch the changes sometimes.
