2008 HE DONATED 1,000 TOSUPPORT A CALIFORNIA PROP 8

70,000 PEOPLE TO SIGN APETITION ASKING EICH TO

RESIGN AND THE DATINGSERVICE OK-CUPID BLOCKED

FIREFOX ON ITS WEB SITELEAVING MANY OF ITS USERS TO

LEVEL INTOLERANCE THAT ISABSOLUTELY, IT SHOULD BE

UNACCEPTABLE.

IT COMES FROM A FASCISTSOCIETY.

IT IS A SHAME THAT IT IS THEGAY COMMUNITY, AT LEAST THE

GAY ESTABLISHMENT THAT ISLEARNING HOW TO GOOSESTEP AT

THIS POINT.

WE ALL REMEMBER WHEN HITLERCIRCULATED THAT PETITION

ASKING FOR POLAND TO RESIGNAFTER IT PREVENTED HIM FROM

MARRYING EVAN BRAUN.

EVERY WHERE I GO PEOPLEASSUME I'M OKAY WITH GAY

MARRIAGE BUT I WILL KNOW INMY HEART THAT THAT IS NOT

BECAUSE FRANKLY, THINGS AREPRETTY GREAT FOR ME RIGHT NOW.
