Taxi Drivers are weird.

So I fly in from Chicago Saturday night and have one of the weirdest conversations I've ever had.
I get in my taxi and the driver asks me what I think about gay marriage.
I respond with, "It doesn't bother me." He goes off! Talking about how this is what's wrong with the youth today, no morals, blah, blah, blah.
He asks if I'm married or have children. I say no. He says that's why I don't "understand". I say what's the difference?
He tells me he's afraid of his 17 year old daughter getting raped by a woman! I'm like WTF?! I laugh and gasp! This man was completely serious! I say you should be more worried about your daughter getting raped by a man than a woman (duh).
He's completely fixed on that homosexuals are pedophiles, rapists, and molesters! I told him he was wrong, but I couldn't convince this man otherwise.
He goes off about how he's a Christian yada, yada, yada. I'm sitting in the back seat like lemme out of here!!!!
I'm still flabbergasted that this man thinks this way.
Thoughts? Comments? What would you have done in this situation?

Re: Taxi Drivers are weird.

at least you tried to help him ....you could have agreed and played along. Told him a lesbian tried to rape you once....that could've scared him more :P

You should of told him about our christian help thread here on the forums

Re: Taxi Drivers are weird.

I hate people who think they need to have a conversation like that when you first meet them. I would have told him I was a married homosexual and see how that went over. People are people and if that is the way you wish to lead your life why should anyone stand in the way of there right to enjoy the same freedoms as hetrosexuals?
Some people are just so closed minded or brainwashed by the church to see the errors in there ways.

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.

Re: Taxi Drivers are weird.

i would suggest that he watch 'American Beauty' . (I hope that's the name of the movie with Kevin Spacey...).

guys like that have their own issues. next time ask him if it was a church figure or family member. :shock:

i think kodos was offering anti-homosexuality counseling for the daughter. lol
if she's a lesbian, she'll kick yo ass mang, hahaha. :hide:
