You vent, girl! It IS upsetting that the legal challenges of homosexual couples are regularly ignored so that people OTHER than homosexual couples can be satisfied with THEIR morals.
It is offensive to describe you as "perverted" because your sexual activities are no one's business. I am heterosexual, but maybe I have sex once a year and maybe I have sex with different partners 10 times a day - it's not anyone's business - and how "perverted" I am has no relationship with how heterosexual I am. There are plenty of perverted heterosexual people. Do not feel pressured to elaborate on your sex life - my point is: it is no one's business but yours.
Thanks, I don't get into the personal or intimate aspects of my life......the really general stuff I don't mind but on topix, even some of that needs to be kept close.......okay my friend.....I'm off:-)

The Trayvon Martin killing was a tragedy that, as far as I'm concerned, never should have happened. It was a classic case of really bad judgment on the part of both the involved individuals, with Zimmerman following Trayvon when he shouldn't have and Martin attacking Zimmerman when he shouldn't have and both men responsible for painting themselves into one of those tight corners where somebody has to be hurt.
But the case, as tragic as it was, was made many times worse by an irresponsible media and civil rights leaders who exploited it for whatever ink and TV face time they could get out of it.
In the time that the Zimmerman trial was going on there were sixty-one murders in Chicago, forty-three of them were black males and seven of those black males were under the age of 18, most of them died from gunshot wounds, all violent, all senseless. Do Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson just not care as much about the black male population of Chicago or is it that they just can't garner as much media attention there?
Speaking of media attention, a young white couple, students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, was carjacked, raped, tortured and murdered.
The young man, Christopher Newsome, was raped and beaten, then castrated, shot, his body dumped by train tracks and set on fire while his girlfriend, Channon Christian, was forced to watch.
Channon was gang raped over a period of days, her breasts cut off while she was still alive, then had cleaning fluid sprayed in her mouth in an attempt to erase the traces of DNA and her body put into a garbage receptacle.
Maybe you're wondering why you haven't heard about this inhuman crime, perhaps you think your local paper didn’t had time to cover it yet.
I seriously doubt that, since the crime took place in August of 2006, and of your local news outlets, most probably never covered it. I live about 150 miles from where it took place and, to the everlasting shame of networks and the local news media I didn't hear about it either until somebody brought my attention to it on the internet.
How could a crime this heinous, this inhuman, this completely evil escape the notice of the mass media and the talking heads who are always screaming for equal justice under the law?
Simple, it doesn't fit their agenda, the perpetrators were all black, all five of them. If this wasn't a case of blatant racism, I truly don't know what is. Do you honestly believe there wasn't racial bias involved in the choosing of the victims and the malicious violence that was done to them, and yet this story, one of the most hideous murders of the decade, was not covered by the media and was completely ignored by the so called civil rights leaders of all colors.
A dangerous precedent has been set by Eric Holder's Justice Department and aided and abetted by the mainstream American media, selective prosecution and selective journalism all calculated to push a political agenda that drives the races in this nation farther apart every day.
No good will come from Al Sharpton calling for demonstrations around the nation, already a group of blacks have beaten a random Hispanic citizen claiming, "This is for Trayvon".
What's the difference in this and what the KKK was doing a few short decades ago. Is this what Sharpton and his ilk want to see happen, anarchy in the name of prejudice? Isn’t that very thing what he's supposed to be fighting against?
America cannot continue down this path and remain the land of the free and the home of the brave where all men are equal under the law.
America desperately needs a president who is a uniter, not a divider, a Justice Department that actually wants to enforce the law equally, regardless of color or race, a Congress and Senate who could reclaim their testicles and a media which reports the news instead of trying to make it.
Blind hate is blind hate no matter what color it comes in.
I will not be a part of it.

Hey now - none of those incidences involved homosexuals. Are you trying to change the subject?

Is the relationship: blind hate?

Look, that was a very passionate and interesting rant about politics, civil rights, and the media - so I cut and pasted it in a new discussion entitled: Selective Journalism and Political Agendas.

I apologize if you are annoyed that I am trying to stick to the topic of homosexuality here, but I am, so...

Just food for thought that was posted by a 'famous' entertainer. This link was on RT.com today from the Russian Orthodox as a perspective of what some on the other side of the world think on the topic of legalizing same sex marriage. Not much different than the typical conservative Christian viewpoint here - despite lack of dialog.

And note the law Putin signed about banning gay propaganda - that gays cannot offend the religious folks. I wonder how many Senators here would put forward such a bill and show that we're at least as 'Christian' as the USSR?

If this isn't an eye opener as to why the other half of the world calls the USA the 'great satan', it should at least cause some to ponder what is in the near future for the US. God isn't mocked.

So now we have a good mix of gay political topics? Or does news from the other side of the planet matter to us; are values a human condition, or a political condition, or are they exclusive of each other?

I think being led by the same spirit best sums up the agreement between the Russian Orthodox and the conservative Christian. In America the so called "church" is led by two different spirits to the point that the evil church has became more powerful than the god church.

What? Are you saying the Church Jesus started in the evil church and the Churches 30,000 men started are God's Church?

I think the Bishop is absolutely right. I hope the Russians listen to him. If the past Popes had spoken with any authority in this country we wouldn't have this mess. The Catholic politicians in this country do any amount of evil they desire and are still accepted in the church. A good example is the deciding vote of gay marriage from Supreme court Justice Kennedy recently of gay marriage. Thanks Catholics.
The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kiril urged Russians to ensure that sin is never formalized in the rule of law.

“This is a very dangerous apocalyptic symptom, and we must do everything in our powers to ensure that sin is never sanctioned in Russia by state law, because that would mean that the nation has embarked on a path of self-destruction,” Kirill stated.

I don't know and I don't care......the only folks who wish to think we are a Christian Nation are Christian Revisionists...They are attempting to rewrite history:
http://freethought.mbdojo.com/foundingfathers...

From the link above:
If the U.S. was founded on the Christian religion, the Constitution would clearly say so--but it does not. Nowhere does the Constitution say: "The United States is a Christian Nation", or anything even close to that. In fact, the words "Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, Creator, Divine, and God" are never mentioned in the Constitution-- not even once. Nowhere in the Constitution is religion mentioned, except in exclusionary terms. When the Founders wrote the nation's Constitution, they specified that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." (Article 6, section 3) This provision was radical in its day-- giving equal citizenship to believers and non-believers alike. They wanted to ensure that no religion could make the claim of being the official, national religion, such as England had.

Now, you like the President can believe what ya want........but our founding fathers intentions are what I opt to believe in!!!

Did the Founding Fathers sign this?

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

First paragraph of Declaration of Independence cites God and the Laws of Nature.

In the past I posted a link showing we were a Christian nation and you came back with the treaty of Tripoli I believe Article 11. I never thought it worthy of a response since if you research that you find it is questionable, but that is the garbage gays use to support their arguments. The homosexual argument is based upon lies. You cannot be gay and be in line with what the bible teaches. The Catholics and some other Christians try to play games saying you can be homosexual (even priest) if you do not act on those urges. Porneia is an act. You are not an adulterer or whatever unless you perform the act. That is the reason Paul says: 1Co 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.

"such were some" If you are engaged in a homosexual relationship you are homosexual. If you stop that act you were at one time but are no longer. The Catholics and other Christians need to quit their traditions and open up the word of God (let it guide them)and quit patronizing sin.

We DON'T live by the Declaration of Independence....though it is a historical document and important to this Country.......it is NOT binding in a Court of law.......that document would be called the UNTIED STATES CONSTITUTION......that is the LEGAL and BINDING document that laws are made from and governed from. The first 10 are considered the all important BILL OF RIGHTS!!!

Please cite one law that governs this Country based on the Declaration of Independence......thank you:-)

It matters not how many in this Country are Christians.......this Country will NEVER be a Christian Nation because not all believe in Christianity and therefore would be trampling on the Freedoms that so many American Service Members have spilled their very own blood for defending it.......remember that FREEDOM ISN'T REALLY FREE some gave all in order for you to be able to believe as you want to!!!

We are judged as a Nation, based on what our Government does not per what individuals do!!!
