    • LOL, I am sure gays are the number 1 members of the NRA. Get real!!!! Now, lets do a study on the crazy tea baggers and see how many psychotropic drugs they are taking.

    • There's way too many right wing gun nuts running around that could easily qualify as 'mentally disturbed'.

    • OK - so you (the conservatives, the religious, the homophobic,...... the "righteous") first dedicate your life to make the lives of gay, lesbians and bisexuals a living hell, and then you are wondering why they have higher depression levels than you???

      It is easy to be STUPID. It Does not take ANY effort at all. It does not hurt in any way, physically or mentally ..... why would YOU be depressed?

      You sit around your BBQ with a beer in your hand, with a flag on a pole and your 'Jesus saves' to hide behind, bashing everyone who is NOT YOU, and scheming how to make their lives miserable. No higher thinking required there.....
      Just pure hatred will do.
      Of course you are not depressed. How could you possibly be? You have your nutrition, your space and your sun..... Everything a PLANT needs.

    • Offer them same-sex marriage licenses. They will line up for that. Then the government can monitor their whereabouts, purchases, medications, phone calls, emails, internet activity, travel.

      Remember, if it saves just ONE LIFE, it is worth it.
