Reading comprehension obviously isn't your strong point. Of course, with your type it never is. Deductive reasoning and basic reading comprehension are anathema to you and yours.

And yes honey, I have talked several people into abandoning their primitive superstitions and moving into the enlightened age.

Not you though. The lord is your shepherd and you perfectly happy being a dumb sheep. Good for you.

In another 150 years, Xtianity in the US will look like is does in Europe. Your entire way of life and it's meaning is fading into obscurity. Bye now.

Funny, we all laugh everyday how the universe is not random like we once thought.
As a matter of fact we are starting to believe there is a god....
And he's a bleeping physicist!

Always nice to see people be so proud of their decision to sit on the wrong side of history. Congratulations, you win the Hazel Massery Award of the day. Carry with you proudly.

In liberal California...the VOTERS said no to same sex marriage...but a liberal judge over ruled the voters. Why even vote if liberal judges are going to disregard what the voters want?
Because dear, the "people" don't get to vote unconstitutional laws into existence. That's one of the very reasons we have a judicial system. It ensures that mob rule doesn't take place. Did you take civics at all, or did you simply sleep through that class?

I do love when you folks always resort to inserting "liberal" into everything when you haven't gotten your way!!! Here you go dear, here are the 80 findings from that "liberal" judge. Feel free to present which of the findings were biased based on this "liberalism" you've assigned to him. We'll anxiously await your keen and astute response.

Muslims? Really? LOL They are no different than xtians. Both are hate cults and will eventually disappear like the thousands of cults before them.

Where does he murder or rape. Show me where.
Are you kidding me? With the murder do you want where he orders someone else to murder on his behalf, or when he does it himself? There are just too many to cite here, you'll need to narrow down the examples that you want.

For the rape, you can go to Luke 1:26 - 38. I'm surprised you don't know this. It's pretty much one of the major stories in your little book. Where your god impregnates a little 12 to 14 year old girl without her consent or permission. It's one of the stories you religitards think is just so wonderful. Taking a little girl who was already engaged to someone else, and simply knocking her up. Yeah, that's lovely.

There you go again talking about something you know nothing about. The Ark of the Covenant is where the 10 commandments where kept.
Yes princess, I'm well aware of that. That's why I clearly stated "THESE [commandments] are what were placed in the Ark of the Covenant..."

Obviously you've already taken your stupid pill for the day.

In your childish ambition to think you have something to contribute, you merely demonstrate yet again that you have the comprehensive skill set of a pigeon.

Jonah1 post #46008

the writing style, choice of words, and the intent to insult all seem alike.
Could it be the writing from the same person ?
Makes you wonder how many screen names he uses in here.
Just when you think gays couldn't get any creepier along comes this guy with multiple names.

But seriously...I don't have a problem with civil unions.
But seriously, we're not interested in some lesser institution. There's one that already exists, and we're entitled to it.
Im not gay wrote:
I think if a person wants to give their 401k or retirement or power of atty to a partner...then thats their bidness. They have to live with the consequence of their actions. I dont care what they do in privacy..no matter how gross it is.
Wow, could you try and shove any more outdated rhetoric into one rambling mess? You don't care what people do privately, yet you care enough to have taken the time to apply your opinion of it. That's sort of messed up. Trust us hon, none of us gays spend 2 seconds thinking about what you straight people do in private, why you're always thinking about what we do and rendering your opinions on it is beyond us. It's very creepy.
Im not gay wrote:
This topic is about unions...not marriage.
This topic WAS about unions. Illinois has already progressed and recognized that unions aren't equal to marriage and that we gays are full citizens entitled to all the same rights and privileges as heterosexuals. Illinois now has full marriage equality.
Im not gay wrote:
I don't see why the marriage part comes up because that's Holy Matrimony.
They are two completely different things. Holy Matrimony is a religious institution. Marriage is a civil institution.
Im not gay wrote:
The atheists shouldn't want to have anything to do with that because that involves a church and God.
Atheists marry everyday in this country, because marriage isn't a religious institution, its a civil institution. Apparantly you're another one of the knuckle heads that think gays and atheists are the same thing.
Im not gay wrote:
A church shouldn't be forced into performing a marriage that is not between a man and woman.
No church anywhere has been forced to do this, nor will they. The church is protected by law from being forced to do so. With that being said, churches that recognize gays as equal citizens shouldn't be forced NOT to be able to perform matrimonial ceremonies for their gay congregants. Yet you fundies would try and deny those churches if you could. Hypocrites.
Im not gay wrote:
So...have your unions and stay out of trying to think you have a bonifide Holy Matrimony marriage.
So....have your own union, and stop thinking you get to determine what I do. Mind your own business dolt.
Im not gay wrote:
But most advocates will say they have a right to marry the one they love.
We do have the right to marry. Marriage has been noted by SCOTUS to be a fundamental right of citizens of this country. We will have the right to marry in all 50 states within the decade. Not a damn thing you can do to prevent that. It's inevitable. But don't let that stop you from your constant whining. We all know how fundies love to whine about just about everything.
Im not gay wrote:
Well...why not be able to marry your daughter or son?
Because that would be incest. Incest is illegal. Any other stupid questions? Perhaps you'd like to ask why you can't marry a tree or a monkey. You know, cause you fundies are stupid like that.
Im not gay wrote:
How about the right to marry more than one person?
Bigomy is illegal too dear. Has nothing to do with what's being discussed here. Attempting to compare the two has already been addressed by SCOTUS as being ridiculous. Only the really, really, really stupid homophobes are still trying to pretend this "argument" has any validity. Check your mirror.
Im not gay wrote:
Where does it stop if a liberal judge decides it's ok like the 5-4 vote in California?
Sorry hon, slippery slope isn't an argument. It just shows you have no argument, only prejudice. Thanks for playing.

We're going to live the same way we would if the Christians took over. Since neither scenario is ever going to happen, it really doesn't requite an answer.

Gimme a break, twit. I'm not Jonah1. Not only are you a judgmental, hateful Xtian; you're an extremely paranoid, judgmental, hateful Xtian. One who isn't quite smart enough to decipher between two separate people. Of course, with your blanket statements about all gays and all atheists it really isn't that surprising. You categorize to make thing simple so that you can hold it in that tiny little pea brain of yours.

Well goodness gracious. Two people use the same words, share the same opinion and think you're an uneducated ignoramus. Well Land o' Goshin, they must be the same person!!
