      Why wouldn’t they be? This isn’t a Tea Party rally you know, there will be no discriminating.

        Excellent answer, Matt!  Thank  you for  pointing out the TP’s idiocy.  They need to be lambasted every chance one gets.

          I’m a Staight Catholic for Marriage Equality but most importantly equality in general. The TP is staining this Country with negativity. Not everyone cares ONLY about Guns, Money and the White Race.

         While I am not a Tea party member I think someone should point out that the GLT discriminates against any group who does not believe the way they do. What woudl these same folks say about say a KKK pride parade? This is America say what you want we are free. Remember that when you who preach tolerance and acceptance agree to ban things and outlaw that you do not agree with. 

        That said more power to them. As a Jew I understand oppression I have family that was killed for simply being what they where. I support everybody right to be who they wish to be just as long as they do the SAME in kind..

          “GLT discriminates against any group who does not believe the way they do” The same can be said about Republicans, Democrats, Catholics, Protestants, Pentecosts, etc…
