In essence you are saying that in the US the method is not subject to the principles of VERIFICATION, REPLICATION, OBSERVATION etc. and it is a matter of how the fellows FEEL.

I should of reminded you that before the last two posts, but your butchering of the scientific method appalled me.
HughBe---What are these VERIFIABLE discoveries?

Frijoles---And by the way, I already posted on the history of the reevaluation of the concept (Kinsey above)

HughBe--- simply list 3 of the SCIENTIFIC and verifiable discoveries that led to the declassification of homosexuality.

Don't list FEELINGS.

What is more interesting is that you are in essence saying that Jesus is the Messiah for you and the other rabbis.

This means that the scales have been removed from your hearts and minds.

No, Rabbi means "teacher", not carnival huckster. Jeesus was a 3rd rate magician -- the David Blaine of the 1st century CE

Your love for Jesus the Jew is clear. Your 3 rd rate magician claim reflects a mind that Satan is DOMINANT.

It says it right on the doors of the police cars.

Last time I was in court, I got probation.

Maybe that's why you stand out.

I'd give your new fan a B+ for effort and creativity.

My favorite line of his:

now, c'mon tell me when you're gonna embrace me, kiss me, massage me, sxck me and turn over for me?

I have to give credit to David Blaine .. he may be a self-absorbed D-bag, but he never claimed to be a god like some others.

My favorite soft targets - religious folks making fun of someone else's fairy tales.

Glass house or what?

At any rate, have fun at Comic-Con.

Long plane ride. I flew from NYC to Hong Kong. Got to go business class which helped.

Since when does rabbi mean Messiah? I can accept Jesus as a teacher and not accept him as the Messiah. He can't help it if the 1st century CE Christian leaders perverted his message and biography.

So, that leaves us with your first statement that Jesus the past/present/future rabbi was not the Messiah.

I don't give a fetid dingo's kidney what anyone believes. As far as I'm concerned, if you believe in Xenu and body thetans then more power on you.

However, when you ram those beliefs down people's collective throats then you have to expect some ridicule.

As the great warrior-poet Will Smith said... "If you don't bring nothing, there won't be nothing"

As for my beliefs, you can't ridicule them because you have no idea what they are. For all you know I might believe that inter-galactic space ships look like DC-9's.

Beliefs are like masturbation, essential for health and sanity but not for public display.

I am not totally against the idea. I have often espoused that government should get out of the marriage business and let religion take over. Government should step in only to protect the property rights of the parties and the interest of any children. The only sticking point is what you do with atheists who should also be permitted to marry. That would leave us with civil unions for everyone and marriage for those who want it as a religious rite. But then you are back to Government intrusion.
United States
In the United States, until the mid-19th century, common-law
marriages were recognized as valid, but thereafter some states began
to invalidate common-law marriages. Common-law marriages, if
recognized, are valid, notwithstanding the absence of a marriage
license. The requirement for a marriage license was used as a
mechanism to prohibit whites from marrying blacks, mulattos,
Japanese , Chinese , Native Americans, Mongolians, Malays or
Filipinos. By the 1920s, 38 states used the mechanism.

Who did the government want to protect in the beginning?

So the court didn't protect your rights and you copped a plea and capitulated.

And you are under the false assumption that police have a duty to protect you.

Why single out only Jesus for censure?

Moses, Elijah, Jesus and Solomon were third rate magicians.

This observation is fair and just.

Besides, Moses, Elijah and Solomon were mass murdering psychopaths unlike Jesus who simply performed his magical tricks and showed his mean face by issuing threats and abuses to his opponents.
