Some people like chocolate ice cream, some prefer strawberry. Some people like men, others women. It's nothing to go to war about. The good news is that every generation seems to hate a little less.

So.... This is news why? Everybody is a human being first. Their sexuality shouldn't matter.

Why is this news worthy? 

And why do religious extremists have to go that extra step (see below comments)? 

The first step in being civil is to not be rude even if you don't agree.

Robin Roberts is not only afflicted by cancer, she is afflicted by homosexuality.  


Homosexuality is by definition deviance.  It is an abnormality.  It thus cannot be normalized.  


Miss Roberts must repudiate her homosexuality if she wants to save her soul.  Homosexuality is a mortal sin, and those who refuse to stop practicing it will send their souls to hell.

So, who really cares? Why do you feel the need to rub this crap in our face? Why do you think we care? I'm a white female that loves my husband and have lost my rights as a white female because of it. Lost them to the " special"protected class. I'm going to start a movement for the race that is truly being discriminated against "The white female heterosexual! I've never had the feeling that I needed to announce that I am heterosexual, until now. Wow that feels good!!!! Here' to ALL white female heterosexuals that are and have been living in the closet all this time. This is my story, does anyone care?

The Jews, however, are beyond all doubt the strongest, toughest, and purest race at present living in Europe; they know how to succeed even under the worst conditions (in fact better than under favorable ones) by means of virtues of some sort, which one would like nowadays to label as vices-owing above all to a resolute faith which does not need to be ashamed before “modern idea…


It is certain that the Jew, if he desired-or if they were driven to it, as the antisemites seem to wish-could now have the ascendancy, nay, literally the supremacy, over Europe; that they are not working or planning for that end is equally sure… The resourcefulness of the modern Jews, both in mind and soul, is extraordinary…”


- Friedrich Nietzsche

German Philosopher (1844 - 1900)





“Some people like the Jews, and some do not.  But no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are, beyond any question, the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has appeared in the world.”


- Winston Churchill - Prime Minister of Great Britain




This people are not eminent solely by their antiquity, but are also singular by their duration, which has always continued from their origin till now.  For, whereas the nations of Greece and of Italy, of Lacedaemon, of Athens and of Rome, and others who came long after, have long since perished, these ever remain, and in spite of the endeavors of many powerful kings who have a hundred times tried to destroy them, as their historians testify, and as it is easy to conjecture from the natural order of things during so long a space of years, they have nevertheless been preserved (and this preservation has been foretold); and extending from the earliest times to the latest, their history comprehends in its duration all our histories (which it preceded by a long time).


- Pensees by Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

Encyclopedia Britannica, 1952 - Paragraph 620, p. 285




“What is the Jew?...What kind of unique creature is this whom all the rulers of all the nations of the world have disgraced and crushed and expelled and destroyed; persecuted, burned and drowned, and who, despite their anger and their fury, continues to live and to flourish. What is this Jew whom they have never succeeded in enticing with all the enticements in the world, whose oppressors and persecutors only suggested that he deny (and disown) his religion and cast aside the faithfulness of his ancestors?!

   The Jew - is the symbol of eternity. ... He is the one who for so long had guarded the prophetic message and transmitted it to all mankind. A people such as this can never disappear.

     The Jew is eternal. He is the embodiment of eternity.”


- Leo Tolstoy

(What is the Jew? 

quoted in The Final Resolution, pg. 189, printed in Jewish World periodical, 1908)





“The struggle for world domination is between me and the Jews. All else is meaningless. The Jews have inflicted two wounds on the world: Circumcision for the body and conscience for the soul. I come to free mankind from their shackles.”


“When over long periods of human history I scrutinized the activity of the Jewish people, suddenly there arose up in me the fearful question whether inscrutable Destiny, perhaps for reasons unknown to us poor mortals, did not, with eternal and immutable resolve, desire the final victory of this little nation.” (Mein Kampf, p.64)


“The Ten Commandments have lost their validity…Conscience is a Jewish invention. It is a blemish like circumcision…”


- Adolph Hitler  the tyrant who wished to suppress imagination,perception,will,reason,intuition,memory from mankind in order to revert it to the flesh.The Jews last conquest. Who Jews made kill himself. 



Yes Hick. The Homosexual will not be laid  to waste for the sake of civilizing you.  As long as antisemitism exist. Conscience like those of Homosexuals shall exist. Let  your rebellion for the order of things be EXPOSED as your victims be saved & SANCTIFIED.

TakeHike. What's up cheerleader? : ) Truth fears no investigation. This is why the haters of the truth craft these disgusting documents to rebel against God/the laws of the universe and his/its  decisions/order. Your teachers and yourself will always be the reason why things never go your way in history : For your hatred for the Chosen Ones.Your lusts for power for the Jews.  You have declared war on America for this. And war you shall see. 






Instead of being a Hick-- why don't you take a hike through history,huh Pagan?


”...If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.


The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”  


- Mark Twain

(“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 

see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)





' I will insist the Hebrews have (contributed) more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing nations. They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this earth. The Romans and their empire were of a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or Modern''


John Adams-- second President of the United States.





“If we had lived in the second millennium BC, the millennium of Abraham, and could have canvassed all the nations of the earth, what would they have said of Abraham’s journey? In most of Africa and Europe, they would have laughed at Abraham’s madness and pointed to the heavens, where the life of earth had been plotted from all eternity ... a man cannot escape his fate. The Egyptians would have shaken their heads in disbelief. The early Greeks might have told Abraham the story of Prometheus ... Do not overreach, they would advise; come to resignation. In India, he would be told that time is black, irrational and merciless. Do not set yourself the task of accomplishing something in time, which is only the dominion of suffering. On every continent, in every society, Abraham would have been given the same advice that wise men as diverse as Heraclitus, Lao-Tsu and Siddhartha would one day give their followers: do not journey but sit; compose yourself by the river of life, meditate on its ceaseless and meaningless flow.”


“The Jews started it all—and by ‘it’ I mean so many of the things we care about, the underlying values that make all of us, Jew and Gentile, believer and aethiest, tick. Without the Jews, we would see the world through different eyes, hear with different ears, even feel with different feelings ... we would think with a different mind, interpret all our experience differently, draw different conclusions from the things that befall us. And we would set a different course for our lives.”


- Thomas Cahill, The Gifts Of The Jews

And what kind of woman would find you desirable? Hmm? Homosexual vampire? With your manly haircut and your 100 % concentrated Vampire-like hatred for men? Beautiful heterosexual women strong enough to CAPITALIZE on your power through gut, truth, grace & IQ? 




What are you here to assure? That your overly chaotic sins are here to spread like the epidemic that it is? That you hold the virtuous ''underestimated conscience'' of the century? With your belief that one has to be poisoned with homosexual tendencies in order to have an equal or greater power than your ilk?




Substance huh? You should be very grateful for the existence of average Joe , ignorant hillbilly men. Because if it wasn't for them-- the higher conscience that be wouldn't even bother putting you in the front pages to show the world how diligence is not be laid to waste. Non-negotiable.No matter what organism it has been found under.  That's why you gotta play your cards right. Which you so obviously can't.




That's why after you get your 5 minutes of fame aka all your equal rights, you'd be another deadbeat empire. Like the Romans,Greeks, Persians, hell , even the Blacks, who made a vast noise through the 90's and 2000's and are all slowly beginning to be consumed by their arrogance for everything.Including the conscience who put them to glory in the first place.  No wait. Blacks still didn't really bit the real hand that fed them. Probably because of not being the most professionally intrepid and individualistically pioneering bunch to discover the rules of the game in the first place.And fall in love with it.  




But are you ? Homosexual? Because the war has started already : )  It's a war for favor, love, attention & eternal wisdom for the SERVING of mankind. And trust me-- you're not going against the-now-working-for-redemption-Catholic Church, you typically -encrypted-to-give-typical-modern-assumptions dumb bigot, you.






Blacks & Homosexuals are still greatly needed.  And all bids are open. Will Blacks & Homosexuals present the showmanship of talent & companionship craved by the Chosen Ones? Or will they turn against them like those past  glorious powers in the name of the cleverly crafted illusion of thinking their place in the world is to be tested, defeated so it can then in turn be bastardized into something the poor mortals of this world  call ''supremacy''

Good for Robin, it took guts in her position. Now if the racist Oprah would admit the same thing that would be something. But she does not have the guts to come out. She is powerful and has nothing to worry about, except her bs image and Steadmans image  since that relationship is phony and a cover.

God says in Galatians 5:

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Some people are rude, some aren't.  The point is:  homosexuality is deviance and a mortal sin.  It cannot be normalized or approved of in a healthy society.  Homosexuals are spiritually disordered, and need to repent of their sin.  There is no getting around that fact.

Hey, don't blame Robin, all she did was post a note of gratitude after a rough year on her Facebook page for her own friends. It was the media that scooped it up to become a news story. Which apparently it is, or all of you wouldn't be reading and commenting upon it. Except for heehee77769777, I don't know what he or she is reading, or drinking for that matter. But a return to medication might be in order.

BlueDuck, it's not about the sex, it's about the attraction. And ultimately about the relationship. Unless for you, maybe it is all about the sex....good luck with that.

@BlueDuck  the only one who is confused/ignorant about homosexuality is you.  


"… the current research and clinical literature demonstrate that same-sex sexual and romantic attractions, feelings, and behaviors are normal and positive variations of human sexuality, reflecting the official positions of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association."

@Dumbace It sure pushed YOUR buttons so I guess it is news. Funny how you  think that women are just sitting around waiting for a man to find them suitable for marriage because, I assure you, no woman of substance would find you desirable in the least.

@daysy@RichardJ.Lehman But it's okay to rape people right? And to enslave others? Because I don't see any prohibitions in that list you (God) wrote for us.

I dunno, George, I think that the "deviant behavior" is just one culture's interpretation, and I think there IS getting around that as a fact. Homosexuality has been regularly observed in multiple species of animals as well as humans. The fact that it is even mentioned in the Old Testament tells me there was a vibrant homosexual community even back then. Many cultures the world around have embraced homosexual relationships as part of their range of acceptable behavior, and have done so for thousands of years, the ancient Greeks, Romans, Native American tribes, Thai culture, Armenian culture, even aboriginal Australians, just to name a few. As a religious man you must know that it is not mentioned in the New Testament, and Jesus was never recorded as having said word one about it or any prohibition against it. And who ever made it a moral sin? Where is that written? And as for its benefits to a healthy society, perhaps it is an unconscious response and product of over-population, and the need to have lower birth rates across the planet before we destroy it and us as a species. Rather than disordered, it's seems like a reasonable and sensible trend. Just sayin'.....

@okanaganhome Great comment/I'm with you 100%..Usually what I call SUNDAY CHRISTIANS ARE THE QUICK TO JUDGE..Monday through Saturday they are sinners in their life, their behavior one way or the other.  I've seen them/been around them during the week and not so sainted.  Steal reams of paper, pens, pencils, white out, etc. from where they work, fudge on their time cards/drag their asses all day so they can work overtime $$$!  I like the saying that "anyone can memorize scripture/quote scripture." and then steal someone's teeth when they aren't looking..
