As you can see here, he uses all the republican talking points on the issue. The slippery slope argument is used by republicans in most any issue involving progressive change. They seem to hate change and progress for some reason.
Assuming there Mike... I have no problem with Progress... Progress is not reverting back to periods of time 1000's of years ago where what you mention was the norm..... Several long collapsed civilizations have already tried your version of Progress. That sorta makes it Regression....

" Que: I believe in God and the Bible and stuff. I believe in Christmas, and uh, you know the commitments and what not.

Int: You mean the Commandments?

Que: Yeah that. I believe in that.

Int: Can you name any of them?

Que: Ahhh … well, I don’t know … like don’t steal, and uh, don’t cheat and shit like that. Uhmm … I can’t remember the rest.

Int: How about the Bible?

Que: Yeah I know some of that. You know. Heaven and Hell, and Jesus fighting with the Devil, but for real, I didn’t really go to church enough to know like all the details, just the important shit, like Jesus forgives you for all your bad shit if you donate some money to the church, or pray and say you’re sorry. "

A lot of people(religie and atheist) on here call god(does not exist) a "he", would not "she" be more accurate, since only women can give birth to life.

Kinda shows a mans hand in inventing god.

Good for you.

Do you use your "special understanding" when you claim to know what most Americans want?

"Two people drift in a lifeboat on an uncharted sea. One says, "There! I see an island. Our best chance is to go ashore, build a shelter, and await rescue." The other says, "No, we must go farther out to sea and hope to find the shipping lanes. That is our best chance." Unable to agree, the two fight, the lifeboat capsizes, and they drown.
This is the nature of humanity. Even if only two people are left in the entire universe, they will come to represent opposing factions."

You indeed are making a categorical error. Consensual adult relationships are *categorically* different from rape. How do you not understand that point?
Stop equivocating these things. They are different.
Also, I don't care about multiple partners. If I recall, the point of this particular sub-thread is whether or not it is OK for kids to be taught that homosexuality is normal. Since all the evidence from all lines says yes, then I don't see where the real problem lies. That is my point.
Multiple partners and sex with goats is where the conversation leads when small minds get involved.

Hell, I am just hoping someday you guys will progress from the mentality of the fifties. You know, the days when all turned a blind eye to beating up a homosexual. The days when no one dared admit to being homosexual.

Who the hell wants to go back thousands of years?? What in the world are you talking about?

I thought the discussion was about gays. Are you smoking pot?

And why do you randomly capitalize letters? I'm just curious about that.

Evidence and argumentation or else I'm gonna assume you broke into the mushroom collection. Start by defining what it actually is you are talking about.

That is almost as dumb as everything else you've said.

I second what the other poster said. You know Americans who are "pro anti-heresy laws"?? Do they inhabit a psycho ward?

No.. no pot.. been dry around these parts... The comment was about Progress... Homosexuality is far from Progress.... As I said History 1000's of years ago made it the Norm in several societies that then collapsed... Calling something Progress that happened several times in the past is Not very Progressive....

I type using my style... Since it is Impossible to denote tone and emphasis in the printed word I Capitalize those words I would tend to Emphasize during a verbal conversation....

Then again assuming ... I have several homosexual friends and would defend anyone from attack no matter the individuals proclivities... I was but pointing out regressing to a mindset that was had by several societies a 1000 years or more in the past is not Progress...

Personally I could care less of anyone sexual proclivities between Adults... But I no more want to hear about then, see them or know about them in the homosexual community as I do the Heterosexual community... I don't want to see a Straight Pride parade any more than I want to see a Gay Pride Parade...

All sexual proclivities should stay in ones private lives ... The destruction of societies as a ongoing endeavor starts with the slippery slope of decadence...

So you attribute the homosexuality of the past to the collapse of the society?
BTW, no one is trying to make homosexuality the norm, we are just trying to give homosexuals equal rights and privileges.
If you are going to make a fantastic charge like this, at least supply an ounce of reasoning. You may as well be telling us that togas cause societies to collapse.
