Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Don't tell me what my religion is. You have no part between me and God.
I am neither immoral, nor a hypocrite. You are a hypocrite if you claim to believe in America, yet still think it is appropriate to discriminate against fellow citizens. I would consider that immoral as well.
Why do you think so many people who have gay family members or get to know gay people change their minds about gay people? Because the myth is busted. My Grandma is in her late 80's. When I came out to her, probably about 16 years ago or so, she didn't miss a beat - because SHE KNEW ME WELL. She knew that her "goody goody" grandson was not an immoral person and therefore the lie that being gay is immoral did not wash. You can't just be immoral in one way. You either are or you aren't. You either draw boundaries in your behavior or you don't. I'll put my morality up against anybody's, any day.
I already know I am normal. I don't need the consensus of the dumbed-down American public to validate that. I do demand the law correct the situation, however. That's not optional.
You get zero points for not gay-bashing. That's expected. That's basic.
I am not a person in crisis, you judgmental, ignorant f**k. I was "in crisis" when I was 12 years old listening to crap like you spew and wondering "what I did to deserve this." Let me tell you, pal, if I chose to be gay, I would absolutely say so. In fact, I would say it IN YOUR FACE and then continue to demand equality under the law. Choice or not has no bearing on this. However, the boring fact is not only did I not choose to be gay, but I tried everything to avoid facing that fact. THAT was when I was furthest from God - when I didn't trust the way He made me and fought against it for over a dozen years. It was the ONE area of my life where I didn't pray for "thy will be done" - I prayed for MY will be done, because as a 12 year old kid who didn't know any better, all I wanted was to be straight. So this was not somebody trying to stop a behavior or a habit or an addiction like you stupid people like to assume. This was an innocent, model 12 year old kid, suddenly thrust into a terrifying (at the time) scenario.
Thank God I had the presence of mind, and His help, to navigate that and come through it level-headed. That was in my early 20's. I'm now 41, quite settled, quite content, and quite grateful to God for my life and my husband.
However, I DO think less of you, for who you are.
Super post Tony. Sad that his religion and cleaving to the bible made him ignorant. I asked a friend who is a born again Christian what she 'd do if she found out her son was gay, she said "I'd hate the sin, not the dinner"
In a Southern drawl nonetheless, that Calvary Chapel sure churns out some shyt.

Apparently he forgot that interracial marriage was against the law. That documentary on Virginia vs. Lovings is really touching.
When the attorneys asked the Lovings if they wanted to come to the court, Mr. Loving said, no just tell them, I love my wife.

It is only common sense that the risks to one's family outweigh any benefit for most people.
If I have a chainsaw,it has a purpose - to cut down trees or cut firewood. It has benefits.
The point is that you want to believe that owning that gun is for your family's protection went it is more likely to be the tool of death or injury to you & your family.

See how being comfortable with yourself works. After all that nonsense you just spewed, telling me you think less of me, I still ain't mad at you. Still don't care if you give or receive, if your the man or the woman of the relationship. I don't care! That thing you call God is you, so is the devil. You were confused as a kid because you knew you were wrong & that peace you feel is because your not confused anymore. You've sided with the devil! I was told I was ugly when I was little, I didn't go thru a crisis. Why is that? Because I knew I wasn't so if you were told you were wrong but you knew you weren't you wouldn't have went thru a crisis. I was also above my peers in weight & called fat. Didn't make me go thru a crisis. Why because I'm comfortable with myself. Back to religion. In the book of Genesis it says be fruitful & multiply. You & your "husband" can't do that. Like I said it's an abomination to the word creation or procreation should I say. Sorry, but my sword of reality shall spare no feelings. You're just been decapitated!

To be fair lily, the jury is still out on that and c'mon she didn't know who shrub or his daddy were at the time. She was just a crazy Texas teenaged girl at the time, still learning how to floor it and light a Marlboro Red at the same time.

I think they believed she was about the best the fetal-alcohol syndrome Dumbya could buy. They let them both smoke pot at Camp David, right? Whether Georgie still had that silver spoon up his nose at that time, I doubt we'll know unless one of the Nazi/bin Laden lovers cracks. Didn't Babs totally cut Neil's wife off after she divorced him? I think I read that somewhere.

In life Lily there are opposites in everything, good/bad, right/wrong, up/down, left/right & so forth & so on. Well male/female fits right in there & you know like I know attraction of the same sex is wrong. You letting your feminine side cloud your judgment to save peoples feelings. I refuse to lie to myself or anyone else. That bullshit story about the confused 12yr old was touching, but it doesn't take away the fact that no one was born gay. I gave him proof of such, prove me wrong!

You being a misguided moron, do not know about the Newsweek cover story.

It is common knowledge in the Chicago gay community that Obama actively visited the gay bars and bathhouses in Chicago while he was an Illinois state senator.

It won't be nearly as controversial as Time magazine's breastfeeding cover, but Newsweek's May 21 issue declares Barack Obama the country's "first gay president."

The accompanying cover story was written by Andrew Sullivan, the popular--and openly gay--political blogger. The magazine even gives the commander-in-chief a rainbow halo.

They know over here but in the U.S., the Ministry of Propoganda has you in the dark, idiot.

As political media buzzed about whether or not Senator Barack Obama's admission eleven years ago that he used cocaine as a teenager would hurt his political prospects, Fox News ran a segment on "Obama's Cocaine Confession." Their conversation took an unusual turn, however, when Fox reporter Kirian Chetry said President Bush had also admitted to using cocaine.

Obama "talks very candidly, as did our current president, who admitted to using cocaine, correct?[Others demur] Well, who wrote, somebody wrote in a book -- well, he admitted that he had an alcoholic, he had a drinking problem.

Lively is himself is in a bit of a pickle, fighting charges of crimes against humanity after being sued by a Ugandan gay rights group. The group alleges that, starting in 2002, Lively

conspired with religious and political leaders in Uganda to whip up anti-gay hysteria with warnings that gay people would sodomize African children and corrupt their culture...

The suit says that Mr. Lively’s actions resulted in the persecution, arrest, torture and murder of gay men and lesbians in Uganda.

Or, as Lively recalls it, worked as a "Christian missionary." Lively, who is considering a run for governor of Massachusetts, is also best known for his non-award winning book The Pink Swastika, which alleges that the Holocaust was a gay movement.

Yep...you ARE that stupid. It's seems rather unlikely that I will ever become POTUS, but if I did, they could put me on the cover as well. I believe in gay marriage ("common knowledge" not at all unless YOU commonly witnessed it), and I'm one of the whitest, straightest citizens you's ever meet. I believe if my only choice for marriage was between you and Lily, I would definitely prefer the latter although our union would remain platonic. Just quit with you Faux garbage, already. You republicans have done plenty of damage to good people as it is.

Ben Carson's apology tour continued this afternoon in an e-mail that was sent, according to its subject line, to "the Hopkins Community":

Dear Colleagues, Friends and Associates:

As you know, I have been in the national news quite a bit recently and my 36 year association with Johns Hopkins has unfortunately dragged our institution into the spotlight as well. I am sorry for any embarrassment this has caused. But what really saddens me is that my poorly chosen words caused pain for some members of our community and for that I offer a most sincere and heartfelt apology. Hurting others is diametrically opposed to who I am and what I believe. There are many lessons to be learned when venturing into the political world and this is one I will not forget. Although I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman, there are much less offensive ways to make that point. I hope all will look at a lifetime of service over some poorly chosen words.

Sincerely yours,

Benjamin S Carson Sr MD
