Do you guys have any idea what Russia does to people who display being gay or ask for gay rights there? Even if you don't agree with anything but hetero relationships you surely don't agree with beatings and imprisonment for it. Right? Hypocritical or not, shedding light on tyrannical actions is always a good thing.

I dont like gays at all but russia is not america and should not police it and homos should just let it go and stop forcing this crap down everybodies throats, just go on with your mental lives and stop trying to find ways to get straights to say crap about you and then find some way to ruin there lives because they dont have your mental beliefs

If people dont like gays then they have a right to say what they want just like you have the right to be a homo, there is no need for a double standard

Fine, however anti-gay people cant leave it there, oh no, they have to murder gay people, beat them and ironically, rape them.

Your notion that it just stops at 'saying' is false and you know it.

While I don't condone those kind of actions against any human being, you know it very well it's not just about gay people. Many other groups of people have suffered for centuries but let's make a big fuss now because gay people came into picture. They chose that lifestyle because of their own unnatural sexual desires and want to make everyone aware of it and make everyone accept it. Homosexuality goes against nature's order and against the natural foundation of our society. It brings absolutely nothing positive but does more harm. But perverts, deviants, physopaths and all such will always find excuses to explain away their buzzard relationships.
No respect for Google's choice or for this site for reminding me once again that a 'he' wants to sadomize a 'he' and that I should somehow accept and celebrate that just because it's covered in rainbow colors.

Exactly, just like people have the right to say that they don't like black people, or asian, or hispanic, or women, or... you get it.
Now you're on your right to say it but the duty of a society that identifies itself as respectful of the human rights is to point to countries and people who don't respect this same human rights and Russia doesn't.
Good for Google here. You have to accept the decission of the Olympic Comitee because it was taken years before Russia became the homophobic image of the developed countries but that doesn't mean you can't use your freedom of speech to protest against it.

What private consenting citizens do behind closed doors is their own business

Homophobic a-hole said what now?
Here's an idea: Move to Russia. You'll love it there. The government will give you a big thumbs-up if you want to beat up gay people. In fact, the government forces gay people to pretend to be straight, otherwise they'll get arrested. So you'll be able to live in a world where you can pretend that everyone is straight, and those evil gays won't destroy your life.

Don't polarise things man. That guy not supporting gays doesn't mean he wants to beat them up.

Just a side note.

It shames me to see that I read, visit and love the same website as a homophobic c*nt like you. Also probably share the same nationality. Sucks.

Ugh, seriously. I saw "401 comments" and immediately thought "Oh, something ugly's going on in there."

419, for me, and I thought the same thing. Yet I had to come inside and make sure......its worse than apple vs. samsung!

Yeah that was pretty much my reaction too. Some smelly pieces of shit like to read this site man lol

They should support some other "human rights" where they truly can (doing business), but I guess it's all about the convenient involvement (banners, letters, donations, etc.). Ask Chinese people how far are they from dealing w Gay Marriage issues.
Sorry, but Google is acting very hypocritical here.

They do quite often, but the focus is on gay rights because they are in Russia and the olympics

The right to reproduce doesn't belong to gays. That is a very, very unique "human right", that gays can't have.

So insults against an entire group of people is cool but a personal insult is over the line for you? Way to stand up for your fellow man.

Yes, only in America. And Canada. And England. And Germany. And Holland. And Sweden. And Scotland. And South Africa. And France. And Spain. And Belgium. And Argentina. And Denmark. And Norway. And Portugal. And New Zealand. And Brazil. And Iceland.

Note...that list is one of equality, not the animal sex...you are on your own with that one and it's clearly something you have contemplated probably a little too much.

In which places was it voted on by the people and in which places was it only voted on by the politicians.

How did the people of California vote?

Voted by politicians which had this issue really clear in their campaign and were elected by those same people. Now showing one particular referendum in a particular zone of a particular country invalidates it for the rest of the world?

Also, I believe most Christians don't use Leviticus or its laws anymore.

The bible explicitly says homosexuality is a sin. Multiple times in multiple places.

via moto x.

The Bible also says to beat your slave lightly so you don't kill him/her. The Bible isn't the best place to derive your morals from buddy.

Old testament yes, but Christ has nothing explicit to say about it in the Gospels. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Now even if he HAD done so it wouldn't matter much to me cause that Bronze Age text is not where I derive my morality from.... but I'm just sayin. Unless you're an adherent of the Torah (which you could be), throwing "the Bible says" around is a little too vague.

I say huzzah to Google, and to AC, for posting this. The historical status quo is essentially discrimination and second class citizenship. Time to shake things up a bit. It's the 21st century after all! Lol.

What about Adultery? Or surrender to pleasures of this world - mostly "natural" desires - pornography, sex for the sake of sex, food without communion and eating to feel full(filled) ,wealth, power?! Who are we to judge others and even worse, to force them live the specific way of life. After all , Christ called people to join him (knowing all our flaws) freely, not with handcuffs or under the long whip.

So there's only one sin in the Bible, huh? ...and straight people aren't sinners, right? Oddly enough, all straight people that sin have all of their civil rights, including the right to get married to the adult that they love. The ONLY reason people like you focus on homosexuality and nothing else is because it's the one so-called sin that you'll never have. That makes you a religious hypocrite.

Actually, The only beef Christ had was with the Money Movers, so we should finally gather all the Christians in US and have them rally and vote against Banks!!!

So exactly which other verses of Leviticus does our society follow? Yeah, that's what I thought... NONE. You are the poster-child for ignorant religious bigots everywhere. Grow the hell up; and keep your CHOSEN religious beliefs to yourself. It's 2014, not 204.

You realise that Leviticus is superseded by later text, right? That none of it applies any more?

The problem here is that most religious people dont even know their own myth. Not only that but most religious figures dont either, or worse, lie in order to rally the masses to a cause.

Do you believe in the bible?

Leviticus 25:44-46

"As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be your property. You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit as a possession forever. You may make slaves of them"

God says go buy some slaves, sweet!

Quoting scripture. A new low for the Gekko.

Bible also says "Love thy neighbor" Canadians are our neighbors and you fucking hate them too.

If anything is getting shoved down your throat, it is because you want it there. No one SHOULD judge you for it. You can put whatever you want in your mouth.

As they say, if you are not in favor of gay marriage, don't marry someone of your same sex.

They have the same rights as the rest of us, no matter what God you believe in.

Gekko says:

Okay, honestly - who didn't see this exact sentence -verbatim - coming from a mile away, lol. Nobody is trying to turn you gay Gekko, although I can understand your deep concern. Sometimes I lay in bed for hours worrying about these gay agendas being shoved down our throats. I don't care what anyone says--it is soooo much different than the wonderful acts of religious witnessing (Christian only, of course..) or spreading patriotism.
As long as I'm comfortable with the beliefs in question, they could never be viewed as being jammed down one's throat.

Sorry, had to get a good laugh in.

You mean the agenda for gay people to have the same rights as straight people? OH THE HORROR!

Here's a fun truth - I thought it was well designed and attractive as a celebration of the Olympics. I didn't see it as a statement (really, never crossed my mind) for or against gays because IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE OLYMPICS. I'm American and I have some loyalty there. I'm straight, and that has nothing to do with the Olympics. What governments and idiots try to use the Olympics for should be shoved down the crapper by reasonable global opinion (whatever is left) until they let the Olympians compete and small minded anyone can stew in their juices quietly if they want the money.

I guess there using the Olympics since attention is on Russia during this time.

I never heard for such a thing and have many friends over there. It may lead to that, we can fear for sure. Nevertheless, I don't think that British politics or better to say practices in the last gazzilion years and recently stand for "freedom". That general reminder should be put in place for all events and their hosts if they want to be fair. Injustice is everywhere at all time.
Btw, the Idea of "freedom" and "Rights" is highly of subjective and philosophical nature. That's why it's been redefined so many times through different ideologies-cultures.

It's disgusting, but they have a right as long as nobody else gets hurt in any way. Freedom is not just for the chosen few. But, even free society's have to draw a line somewhere. I'm not saying gays are that line, but where is that line at?

Posted via Android Central App

The line is when people with evil in their heart towards others hide in their cellars and rave with the others just like them - and are afraid of the light. Free societies will protect the right to walk in the light, and speak and act without hurting others - whether you like what they say (or do) or not.
Make me a judge or legislator and I will happily make laws that make sure that YOU can not be gay, the wrong religion, take the wrong drugs, or be in the wrong political party. As long as I'm protecting YOU from YOU, I'll put you in jail as soon as you break the law you thought you needed to be stopped from doing.

We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. This isn't that bridge.

Posted via Android Central App

"It's disgusting." -- You're straight. You're not suppose to be sexually turned on by homosexuality. But I think it's offensive to call gay people disgusting. As a gay man, I don't enjoy watching straight porn. But I'm not going to say that straight people are disgusting.

Where do you draw the line? When someone's actions harm someone else. Two consenting adults doesn't fall under that category.

The problem is what a lot of shitty people think of as "harm."

"Oh, I can't believe those two men are holding hands in public! How am I going to explain to that my poor little kid!"

"Ugh, two women got married! That's attacking my own marriage!"

Yes. They do that all the time. I don't think standing behind equality has ever been the wrong side to stand on throughout history. So they are just being smart here. Plus no doubt a fair number of gay people work there. And it's not like they haven't done things like this before. Look at my profile pic. It's from a t-shirt they made. Clearly, just like Apple and MS, it is what they really believe. Equality is good for business.

Probably not. But if hobby lobby and chic filet can be seen as standing up for their (in my view retrograde) morals--and be seen as doing so out of principle--then why can't Google take a stand for human rights and get the benefit of the doubt too?

What if the country hosting Olympics bans Black people from participating! Are the Olympics still bigger than Human Rights issues in your eyes? The same applies here.

No... people beating the shit out of other people because of their sexual preference(a EXTREMELY COMMON occurrence in Russia) is more important than the fucking Olympics.

Well said.

I hope some gay athletes win medals and we get some gestures of solidarity from the podium, a la Tommie Smith and John Carlos.

It's always interesting to see posts like this. The homophobes always seem to be the most vocal responders. Makes me disappointed in the human race some times.

It's amazing how many people don't realize that they broadcast their own heterosexual sexuality like a freeking beacon day in and day out each and everyday.

Posted via Android Central App

It's simple. Because you ARE homophobic. We are not pushing anything down anyone's throat. We are displaying homosexuality just like straight people display heterosexuality when they post a photo with their girlfriends, when they kiss in public, in most commercials where there are straight couples. This is only the begining. We are gonna show gay people EVERYWHERE just like straight people do until People see them equally. Hiding it will never stop homophobia. Teaching people (especially kids, considering their parents will try to corrupt them) that being gay is perfectly natural (more than 500 different species have homosexual beings, in fact in some species it's over 50% percent!). If it bothers you than stay at home with the TV off or kill yourself, cause as I said, it's only the begining.

Um...calling people faggots...preeeetty much makes you a homophobe, bud. Hate to break it to you. Oh, also using the term "gay agenda" pretty much outs you as a homophobe as well.

Posted via Android Central App

Wait a minute, what? You actually believe gays have the right to marry in all of the US and that sexual orientation is protected by all anti-discrimination laws?

Unless you know some great news I haven't read yet, I think you might be mistaken.

Gay people do NOT have the same rights. That is the problem. More states than not do not allow gay marriage. They do not recognize a partner for imoprtant things (medical stuff). You can still discriminate against a gay person/couple and get away with it.

I know your not dense enough to not know this already...

In these states, gays & straights do have the rights to marry the other gender, and both gays & straights are not allowed to marry the same gender.

I say, they have the same rights.

Under the law gays have the same rights? Wow. What alternate reality is this place you speak of? Your comments simply aren't true. You comment isn't even true about the United States much less Russia. I have anti-gay hate and Christian religion thrown in my face everyday. How awful for you to have equality thrown in yours. How do you make it through the day? It's so comparable to people having their windows broke, rocks thrown at them, or their heads bashed in because they are gay.

It's funny and ironic that you say it's not your fault some people still hate it, when clearly you are one of those people yourself! Hopefully you will get over that someday and not feel so offended when someone wants the same rights you have and doesn't want to be bashed in the head for it.

So you're saying gays aren't Christians? Or that all Christians hate gays?

Posted via Android Central App

I am pretty sure that neither of those things were said.

True Christians do not sit in judgement of others, knowing it will come back.

The holier than thou ones we have in an overabundance of lately have some serious hate.

And yes, there are Gay Christians.

Neither of those choices. Some gays are Christians. Some Christians hate gays. Those are side issues. You missed the point completely. I was referring to the people who use their religion as a BS reason to hate other people. They hide behind it and use it as a weapon. I see it all the time. Both online and off.

That's worldwide and not restricted to gay bashing

Hey, if I'm jewish I don't want TV throwing christmas and Christianism down my throat! I don't have to see it! Also, I don't wanna see black people on TV, no one can force it on me! I also don't wanna see women! They are inferior and should be at home cooking not on a TV show! Hypocritical Christians! Their own Bible says that women should be submissive!

(P.S.: my statements were ironic, if you are a black person or a woman don't take it seriously.)

I'm sorry, but you should take a constitutional law class. No where in the constitution says that you have the right to not be offended.

There's no such thing as a right to NOT be challenged or offended by different viewpoints, nor should there be.

Yes, because every gay person is in everyone's face at all times saying "look at me, look at me!".
Basically, if someone is gay, you'll totally tolerate it (how noble of you, btw); just as long as they agree to neither being seen or heard?
Did you ever stop to consider that maybe gay people were forced to create a distinct "gay-culture" for themselves because mainstream society deemed them outcasts long ago?
That argument sounds about as rational as this oldie - but goodie:
"I'm totally fine with black people--just as long as their rap verses aren't vulgar; they aren't active members in a gang; they don't frequent criminal line-ups; or - god forbid - get overly proud/enthusiastic about their own heritage. I mean, come on; you're black, we get it!!".

Gays are 2% of the US population. Why do the 98% have to put up with a disproportionate share of gay propaganda?

@icebubba What does it matter what percentage they are? This is a country where there is supposedly "liberty and justice for all." The 2% deserve their rights just as much as the other 98%.

Posted via Android Central App

That's true. I agree. I just don't believe that glorifying alternative lifestyles to our children is appropriate.

Posted via Android Central App

It's fine... You are an old dude. You'll die soon with your generation along with your generation's narrow views. The world won't miss ya. Bye.

Riiiiiight. It's not like any of those children are GAY or anything. (Your sexual orientation is in place long before puberty). Stop using children as an excuse. Kids don't care. Only their uptight parents do. And this Doodle is not "glorifying" anything. It's just standing up for the equality of all people. Just as you should be doing. Everyone on the planet should have the same rights. Everyone.

I love that argument because as soon as someone makes it they fail.

It implies that doing so will turn kids gay. Well I didn't know your heterosexuality was so fragile! See a few dicks and you just turn into a big old gay! wow I didnt know gay people had such power!! There is ZERO evidence that it ever happens, ever.

All showing kids 'alternative' lifestyles does is make then feel more secure about themselves. Gay ones will be gay, straight ones will be straight, on that front nothing changes, they just become less bigoted.

Kids are pure, they don't judge, they understand homosexuality much better than you do. Being gay is not a choice, people are born that way. So I can show your kid as many gay couples kissing etc as I want and if he was meant to be straight he will be straight. Afterall, us gays have seen straight couples EVERYWHERE and still we turned out gay.

Considering the number of closeted gay and bisexual people out there, how can you possibly know? And you have to put up with our "agenda" the same way we have to put up with your hate. The difference is, we've never tried to keep you from any of your freedoms, including the freedom to hate.

Because right now there is a disproportionate amount of hate and civil rights violations going on about it.

Give the 2% equality and I am pretty sure they will go away.

@NoNexus.

I get your point but you worded it wrong.

And major respect to AC for posting this. Screw the haters, its always nice to feel supported.

Posted via Android Central App

Do you guys have any idea what Russia does to people who display being gay or ask for gay rights there? Even if you don't agree with anything but hetero relationships you surely don't agree with beatings and imprisonment for it. Right?

Posted via Android Central App

They don't really care.. Whatever gives them money.. It's not like they "actually" support it. If you screw animals in sure Google will accept you just the way you are.

Posted via Android Central App

When the subject of equality comes up, why does the talk always turn to animals for some people? (sigh).

WHEW, thought I was gonna have to buy a BlackBerry for a second there...

lol :-)

Yeah, it's definitely not as if they "actually" support it. That's why they increased pay for employees with same-sex partners in states where same-sex marriage is illegal in 2010 to compensate for lost tax deductions.

Also, nice conflation of homosexuality and "screwing animals"--sure haven't heard that one before!

Yeah. Why do people always bring up beastality, and other types of pedophilia.

Absolutely disgusted at Google supporting pedophilia and other kinds of horrible things. No thanks, we don't need perverts in Russia. I'm switching to Bing )))

HAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I can't even get mad. This is...kinda cute in its utter ignorance...

You sir are a terrible person.

Being gay is not pedophilic.

I feel like this post has gotten more comments in a shorter period of time then most posts on this site.

Why is being gay still "wrong" and why are people bullied for it, to the point of wanting to kill themselves?

You don't have to support gay people.

Just don't bully other human beings for being "different" from you.

Thanks.. Byeee.

Sure are a lot of gays on android central.... Not that I give a fuck, just making an observation. Or, they just flocked to this thread.

Can you at least present your side of the argument in a manner that doesn't make you seem like a complete moron?

@HalizDad Also your posts are just offensive and remarkably unintelligent. Calling people names and throwing about inappropriate sexual terms doesn't make those on your side of the issue look very good, and it especially does you no favors.

Posted via Android Central App

So what... I'm not running for office, and the constitution says I can say it all I want just like you can wave your fag flag...you only want it your way though, and that is what bothers people.

Posted via Android Central App

Just because you can say a thing, it doesn't mean you should. Its called having class.

Actually you cannot say whatever you want. You can say: "I don't like gay people", but if you call one a "fag" that is discrimination and you can be sued for it.

Oh okay...that makes it all better. Didn't realize there was a quota to meet before it gets REALLY offensive. Unbelievable.

@HalizDad And then "dick" and "pussy." Just words that shouldn't be thrown around in any intelligent argument worth having. Maybe at a middle school lunch table, but definitely not in the comment section of Android Central.

Posted via Android Central App

@HalizDad My point is that your argument is nothing more than a really half-assed "I don't like gays, but I don't particularly have a reason for that" masquerade.

Posted via Android Central App

I don't give a fuck that you like cock more than my ex wife...this is the internets...

Posted via Android Central App

I'd say the same shit to your face if you walked up waving that ugly flag

Posted via Android Central App

No you would not. Your right this is the internet and you are just a part of the "intenet tough guy" brigade. If haliz (I assume hailey) is your daughter, she should be ashamed of you. Hopefully your ex-wife made the right decision and took her far away from your bigoted and neanderthal views.

@HalizDad Dude, I'm not even gay. This just proves how simple minded you are.

Posted via Android Central App

And I don't care if you are, or not...you can't understand that because you're narrow minded

Posted via Android Central App

Oh you do care.....you care a little too much. A person who really doesn't care, says nothing at all. And I've got some really bad news for you.....we are EVERYWHERE!!!! (Cue sinister music) Bahahahahahaaaaaaaa
