YOUR QUOTE:
"Neither do most people. Why is it important to restrict anyone ?"

Your response is incorrect here, perhaps spoken before really thinking about it. I believe "everyone" has "restrictions" in personal relationships and matters of the heart, their own as well as others.

This would apply to homosexual unions as well. If one party withdrew from a second party and extracted his/herself from a relationship to pursue a heterosexual association, a perceptible violation of "restriction," implied or expressed would then exist!

Most people, whether homosexual or heterosexual have definate restrictions governing mutual conduct and respective expectations of conduct, implicitly or explicitly. At a minimum, those in relationships have "inferred" restrictions which are based upon expectations of conduct. The "expectations" may also be inferred by parties who loosely define the governance of their relationship, or who never thought it worthwhile to visit the issue to begin with. Nevertheless, everyone has restrictions regarding their relationships and all matters of the heart.

It struck me that you key on the phrase, "why is it important to restrict anyone?" In the instance of personal relationships, I can't imagine the resulting disaster from failing to establish "expectations" of conduct, implicitly or explicitly. "restrictions" are merely the "book-ends" of expectation of conduct.

Getting back to your question: "Why is it important to restrict anyone?". This is the same question being asked by the majority of citizens in our country..those who "ARE NOT" LGBT lifestyle practitioners. Competing social and cultural doctrines are found to be fundamentally irreconcilable. Most opponents of same-sex "marriage" do not necessarilly wish to "restrict" anyone or anything so much as they wish to RETAIN "marriage" resting in it's critical societal role at its historical definition. This is my wish as well. I have always believed accomodations are there to be made in matters endemic to alternative relationships without destroying the one man, one woman institution of marriage.

<quoted text>So you must be of the same mind as Linda when she said "I don't care who marries who, same sex, opposite sex, it makes no difference to me. I am not involved because I'm heterosexual and frankly, I just don't feel that it's any of my business who loves who nor who marries who, of either sex. When it somehow involves me, or somebody on my Family, then I will probably feel like it's some of my business, IF they make it my business."
The last part is the most dangerous.
"But otherwise, just let everybody do what they feel is right for them, when it comes to personal relationships and matters of the Heart. That's what I think and feel about it!"
She places no restrictions on "personal relationships and matters of the heart".
Ya know NTMD8OR, even though my skin is beginning to crawl, I must respond to your post.
I do agree with everything Linda said in her post, especially the last part. But for the life of me, how did you ever pull up "NAMBLA"?
I just can't believe that you would just pull this organization out of thin air. This organization is trying to change the laws on the age of consent for children. They are a Pedophile organization.
Linda did not even come close to mentioning/agreeing with them.
But somehow you had no problem coming up with "NAMBLA" because of her statement.
Again unblievable!

Actually, I've been all over the world..and you're still the dumbest individual I know.
I do enjoy foreign culture, but love America the best. I just wish you did!
When I travel, I look beyond the other tourists in airports, hotels and places of note to witness the realities of every conceivable human impoverishment. It doesn't matter which country you're in to quickly realize America's greatest distinction emblematic in opportunity for "anyone," even the poorest, weakest and least gifted.
America has never been destroyed by a dictator as many others have been. Our current national circumstance is bleak when grasping for reasons to forecast a continuation of personal wealth in America..washing machines, affordable power in homes, hot running water, food, fuel, medicines, shelter, the ability to feed family members..and stuff like that!
President Obama will continue to hold America's head underwater until dead! When Venture capital, commerce, and industry have been sufficiently undermined, America will implode into its own debt with breathtaking speed and governmental cruelty. Each week the marxist dream of capitalisism de-stabilization and eventual destruction becomes more real as catastrophic financial failure is not only possible, but predictable. As you're starving with the rest of your countrymen, I'm sure the hierarchy of evil now holding our country in a death grip will come to personally congratulate you!.:-)
Willard, I only responded to your first sentence.
Now I'll respond to your second sentence.
Where do you come off saying that I don't love America?
I love America so much that I put my life on the line for America many years ago and I don't believe you were anywhere in sight.
I still love America and will always for the rest of my life.
How dare you say I don't love America!

OT, please advise your Rep. that St. Rep. Ron Travis(R) 31st District, is not on the fence about Medicaid Expansion.
Instead he has a firm grip on Gov. Haslams coattails and will go where ever that takes him.

People on FaceBook post NAMBLA links from stories i fact a few years ago the group were to have a National Conference in the Great Smoky Mtn area and it was actually on the news , the GOV cannot or will not control such groups NAMBLA but they want to have a say so in civil rights issues such a gay marriage, the GOV needs an overhall regulate things that actually matter instead of keeping the US from being competitive with other countries , its a civil acts movement more than a GOV issue.

hahahaha, sometimes these Topix posts amaze me. OT has a Tea Party neighbor who is henpecked, so all the Republican party males are henpecked. Guess what, I have a democrat neighbor, not a liberal but a democrat, who is the biggest tightwad I have ever met. Based on your and OT's argument, I guess I am to assume all democrats are tightwads. I sort of laughed as well though. I realize OT was having a little fun.
But seriously, you would be very surprised by how many Republicans care for their fellow citizens, both democrat and republican, and are genuinely good people. I like to think of myself as one of these. I am very confident that if you were to brush politics aside for an instance, you would find many Republicans to be quite pleasurable. I in fact have found many democrats to be great people and like to call many of them as my close friends.
My ideology is secondary to my family and my values. Many republicans are like me with these priorities. For example, the second time we went to war in Iraq to me was not worth the loss of life on both sides. This move by my fellow republicans went totally against my moral beliefs. Therefore, I felt this was wrong. Rush Limbaugh has disrespected several people over the years. Even though I agree with his political beliefs, I would like nothing more than to admonish him for his unethical behavior. I have similar examples on the democrat side as well.
Sometimes I err and let my political side take control over my moral side. Sometimes, it is just human nature to do so. I try not to let this happen often though.
We as citizens of this great nation have more in common than differences. Concentrating on the differences and disrespecting people for these differences is detrimental to the country as a whole. Focusing on the commonalities can only lead to success.
Again, my two cents.
Great post "Pete" ! Like you, I believe MOST peple no matter their party affiliation, care about their fellow Americans, and are good people. Sadly some politicians and pundits benefit by magnifying our differences and minimizing our commonality. Forums like this can drive wedges as well, since I contend many of the comments posted would never be spoken face to face.
Like you, I thought Bush was rushing into the second Iraq war, and while I believe we must have the strongest most well equipped military, I want it to be used defensively not offensively.
You post that you agree with Limbaugh politically....but your words indicate something else entirely. You appear to be a business Republican, and your type of politics is exactly what the party needs to lead it back to a place where people like me were once welcome and mainstream.

Good morning "Dunlapian" ! I can tell you how I think NAMBLA came up.....Talk Radio. As you know I tape Rush and a couple of other loudmouths, ooops I mean hosts and NAMBLA has been all the rage as a reason to oppose gay marriage.

I would join this news site if everyone would use their real picture its just weird yet interesting not knowing who is who and all I suppose that makes it real interesting because if someone was really attractive they would get more reply backs and bogged down to reply. I suppose that is why fb is more popular caise you can see who you are talking to . the latest scare on FBook is that the pedofilia sites are hiding behind names such as I love my kids, I love summer, quotes for moms etc etc so they can see your childrens pictures. its a really scary cyberworld

Thanks for the info. Haslam was not a tea party type before he got to the Governor's Mansion and I suspect he has not become one now.
I think Haslam's "third way" on the issue was an attempt to preempt Ramsey's bill to permanently bar accepting the Medicaid expansion. If that is the case....it worked.
With the Obama reelection, the ACA is here to stay, and the Medicaid expansion will go forward sooner or later....now it falls to Haslam to convince a legislature, MUCH more right wing than him, of that fact, before they lose the 100% reimbursment rate for Tennessee next year. Rick Scott and Jan Brewer did, and this will be the first REAL test of Haslam's leadership.

How did we survive? We almost didn't! America survived "in spite of" the father of the "great depression" by virtue of his policies which made America's recovery incredibly worse.
You do pose a good question: "How did this country ever survive the 8 years that Dwight Eisenhower was president ???" To believe the socialist policies of that administration were attributive to America's survival is tantamount to believing approximately nine million jews, Italians and Poles all lied about an innocent Hitler! Ridiculous, in fact!
Americans survived by their perseverance, ingenuity, hard work and an existing societal cohesion absent in today's culture. More importantly, America survived as God allowed abundance to fall upon a nation in prayer which had not yet thrown him out of every institution, business and home like the daily trash!
I fully recognize you have hook-line-and-sinkered the talking points of the so-called "progressives" (Accurately- the Marxists) and are committed to this level of propaganda and to a President and administration who also hate America!
So, you think the policies of the Eisenhower Administration were "socialist policies" .......HUUMMMM and some folks think I'm a radical.
