Barack Obama, our next President

HEY STUPID! Mainstream Mormons gave up polygamy over one hundred years ago. The breakaway sects that practice it force young and often underage girls to marry older men. That's hardly consensual and is totally irrelevant. If some group wants to practice consensual polygamy then let them bring their case to the courts.
You're an idiot!
Thanks for demonstrating once again your total ignorance. So again your support for equality is only for the groups you deem acceptable. You are a fool and a hypocrite

I think that PDUPONT is advocating for gay marriage only so that in the future he can petition the court to marry his dog.

<quoted text> I bet you still believe in Santa claus & the Easter bunny! I thought the first rule of being liberal was believe none of what you hear & some of what you see! Maybe not. I might be mistaking that phrase with my own logic. Again, why don't straight kids commit suicide because they've prayed to be gay, but God didn't answer? This is a common story amongst gays, so answer that. Why is gay taboo in almost everywhere in the world? You wouldn't be stupid enuff to believe that the world is wrong & you & the few are right would you? The Bible has nothing to do with it when it doesn't cater to your agenda. You were just on here a week ago arguing that this country was founded on Christian values now the Bible has nothing to do with it. You're talking about rights under marriage laws stupid, not the meaning of what marriage meant, because you know like I know it meant the same damn thing, or was your coveted forefathers marriages just legal contacts to ensure if the husband died , his spouses father got the inheritance? You keep believing think tanks & govt alphabet soup. They all lie to push their agenda. That's what the PR department is for idiot!
Nobody commits suicide because they want to be one sexual orientation or the other you vomitous cretin. Gay teens commit suicide because of the bullying they put up with at the hands of kids who are raised by ignorant pieces of fecal matter like you.
I go with evidence gathered according to scientific protocol by groups of professionals whose objective is to ascertain facts. You on the other hand just pull stuff from your butt.
I have never at any time claimed that this country was based on Christianity and have in fact on numerous occasions cited the Treaty of Tripoli to refute those who have made that claim. You're either a goddamned liar or have the reading comprehension skills of a hamster. So which is it?
At the end of the day ignoramuses like you are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

So then when Mormons petition for equal rights under marriage for multiple partners you will also support them? Oh wait that's right your zeal for equality only extends to the causes you support. Hypocrite!
If it can be demonstrated that such unions are consensual and women have an equal right multiple husbands, sure, why not? You seem to have a problem with the concept of consensual. Forced marriage as practiced by groups like Warren Jeff's group is not consensual and so yes I can reject their claims.
You're an idiot!

Propose? He's president. Do something. C'mon, grow a pair, Barry. Then again, we all know democrats will never eliminate gov't programs, redundant or not.
One thing is for sure, you leftist fools will continue to blame the "sequestration" and the GOP.

Our climate is based partly on its composition.

Natural events determine & change our atmosphere as it has in the past.

Man is changing our atmosphere. For decades we have pumped more & more greenhouse gases into our atmosphere.

What exactly does that mean,"becoming irrelevant?" I should've never been relevant to you in the first place. My relevancy is priceless to those that matter to me, so your opinion ain't worth the American penny to me! See you've never been relevant. How does it feel so I'll know when I"become irrelevant?" You, your gay lover, his gay lover, & the rest of the gay community can have a gay parade, festival, carnival, & orgy all in one night for all I care. It ain't my butt! What you can't do is hide the statistical facts that gay kids are 2-3 times more likely to commit suicide that straight kids. Bullying has nothing to do with it. Children are the most cruel beings on this planet & people get bullied for alot more than just being gay. Poor kids get bullied for being poor & having bummy clothes. Fat kids get bullied for being fat. Ugly kids get bullied for being ugly. Yet their suicide rates are far more lower than gay kids. You were right about one thing. It's not being gay that actually forces them over the edge. It's exposure. As long as they can hide it, they're fine. Look at the college dude that killed himself cuz his roommate caught him & taped him. No straight dude would've killed themselves if their roommate taped them having sex with a female. None! Gay dude couldn't take the fact that everyone found out. He wasn't thinking about that when he had his ass in the air now was he? You talk fact, show me a straight kid or dude that offed themselves because he was exposed for having sex with a female. You can't! Also there are no facts to back up the theory of people being born gay. Infact, the fact support the opposite. But you'll still argue this bullshit gay gene theory to make someone feel comfortable when they shouldn't. Like I said tho, have your parade & all that! I honestly don't care! I just won't lie to make people feel normal when there's something mentally wrong with them. Sometimes honesty is brutal!

Homosexuality ultimately a result of gene regulation, researchers find

The search for a "gay gene" may be off-target, new research finds. Another process called epigenetics that switches genes on and off may explain why homosexuality runs in families.

Epigenetics are heritable changes caused by factors other than DNA. Instead of traits getting passed down through the genes, epigenetic change happens because of the way genes are regulated, or turned on and off.

These genetic regulators may be the reason homosexuality persists in nature despite the fact that gay people are less likely to reproduce, suggests the new study published in the journal The Quarterly Review of Biology.

"These things have evolved because they're good for the parents, but they sometimes, not [with] high frequency, but sometimes carry over" into offspring, study researcher William Rice, an evolutionary geneticist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, told LiveScience. In a male fetus, Rice and his colleagues write, an epigenetic change that benefited the mother may lead to "feminization" of sexual preference — homo- or bisexuality. The same may be true for epigenetic changes passed down by dad to a female fetus.(The terms feminization and masculinization of sexual preference refer to sexual orientation only — not to physical or personality traits of the offspring.)

The findings add to past research suggesting gay men haven't died out, because female relatives of gay men tend to have more children on average than other females. The study researchers specifically found that two genes passed on through the maternal line could produce this effect.

Why Conservatives Think the Ends Justify the Means

...For liberals, generally speaking, honoring procedures—means—is the core of what being "principled" means. For conservatives, fighting for the right outcome—ends—even at the expense of procedural nicety, is what being "principled" means. Think of it it, allegorically, this way: imagine in Washington DC, near Capitol Hill, a little old lady is crossing a hazardous street. A fastidious liberal congressmen, proud of always acting in a principled way in all things, stops to help her across the street—even though that means he might be late for a key vote (the sacrifice of an end, in itself, confirms his principled nature). A fastidious conservative congressman, on the other hand, leaves the lady to her fate and makes the vote (because the upholding of the end, in itself, is where honor lies—and dishonor rests, in the ultimate term of derision righties reserve for each other, in being a "squish").

In short, if you're a conservative, isn't the point of an election to win, so you can bend the world to your will, no matter the means it takes to get there? Even if you don't necessarily have the majority's support?
