Gay Marriage Hitting Resistance

Gay marriage is hitting significant resistance in Washington D.C. where a huge Gay contingency exists. Some homosessual men have been seen in the streets of our Nation's Capital protesting our country's laws against gay marriage. They have been seen on TV marching in protest in Gay Pride Parades carrying on. Many of these gay couples work in Washington D.C. and are running our country and have infiltrated many government agencies. Many are Lawyers and Lobbyists. A few have found Churches willing to endorse gay marriage in order to receive the homosexual citizen's rich tithing.

Unfortunately graffiti has also found its way into Washington D.C. by taggers and this graffiti has found its way onto the very church buildings that these homosexuals attend. In fact although these are most likely isolated incidences many homosexuals have alerted the media in order to play the victim cards. What many do not understand is that they already run Washington D.C. and are running many agencies there. They work as lobbyist and also often use their sexual prowess to get in bed with those decision makers who can promote their personal agendas. Some say that homosexuals vindictive and petty and are quite problematic since they are such a small minority of our nation. This simply is not true of all the homosexuals in Washington D.C. One gentleman we talked to who is involved as a Washing D.C. insider said he know hundreds if not thousands of homosexuals in the political inner circles of Washington D.C. and know of at least two that he had heard about that were not vindictive at all.

So who are the graffiti taggers who are writing homosexual slurs and pointing out these issues in Washington D.C.? The gay contingency wants you to know that they are homo-phobic non-open minded thugs and these are hate grimes? Are they? Or are we, the people, all hated by the homosexual contingency that wants to teach society a lesson? Some believe that the homosexual contingency in Washington D.C. is slowly reshaping our nation and using their relationship building to grow alliances against all people who dare to maintain heterosexual relationships. I wonder who is right? I wonder what should be done about this? You are well advised to wake up and look at what is happening and then decide for yourself how you feel about these issues and your future as a heterosexual. You are a homo-phobic, close-minded scum, which does not deserve to have your voice heard. Hate crime, indeed? Think on this
