Not just the Bible as he pointed out. It happens in all religions to some extent. Like V said, most Muslims are not the picture we see on TV. Well, I think he meant that. And the message of the Bible is not what Church you attend or how you look or your lifestyle, it's a personal relationship with Him. And it's not our job to judge others. Someone being gay doesn't bother me. People can disagree on gay marriage and still be in support of equal rights in my opinion. But if it happens, it won't bother me unless some Churches get sued for refusing to perform the ceremony.

I pass gas better educated than you are. You don't have a single earned degree. Admit it.
Then, I suppose that we need to do away with "Men" and "Women' on the outside of bathrooms. A man can go into the "Mens Room", why can't a woman? And why can't a man go into the "Womens Room"? This is plainly unfair to everyone. What you call "passing gas", we know to be you exhaling.

It's sad that the process of voting doesn't mean anything anymore. This issue was voted on twice and the majority still voted yes on Prop 8. This issue was forced on Californians who already went to the polls and said what they wanted BY VOTING. Obama, the Supreme Court indeed has disenfranchised a very large number of Californians. Not Cool. The voting process has been disrespected.

As AKPilot posted, you need to work more on your grammar. Your punctuation sucks, too. Devote more of your computer time to learning, and less to insulting your superiors.

Well hay oh great ignorant one! Maybe you should educate yourself on the medicinal and medical properties of Cannabis! There are many legitimate uses for Pot and it can be of great help to those who are suffering from medical conditions like Cancer, glaucoma,and really to many others to name in a post! It also helps immensely in cancer patients going through chemo and radiation therapy who have no appetites where pot helps stimulate! Many people who suffer from chronic pain use it also and again it is of great help to them,so don't judge!You sound like a very bitter whatever but maybe like I said do a little reading on the subject before you spout off like this! The answer is NO we need to look into the further uses of Pot as a medicinal thing! The honest truth is that it's a lot less harmful than alcohol is and doesn't do the damage that alcohol does! Ban pot? How did trying to ban alcohol work out for the country? You sound as I said like a bitter uneducated fool!
Off-topic. Take it to a Pot Forum.

So WHAT'S NEXT?, because you know this isn't over, who else is going to come out of the woodwork and hop on this bandwagon. Polygamist? Adults wanting to marry children? Minors wanting to marry other minors? People wanting to marry their pets? Oh, and what about marrying oneself? I mean how far will this be taken in the future? I know one thing, I want it kept out of public schools and High School Health classes, and that's not me being hateful because I don't hate the homosexuals and I'm not scared of them.

Agreed. They have no business teaching and promoting aberrant sexual behavior to our young, all so that they can benefit, financially.

and the puddle of crud worshipers and famous atheist like pol pot and Stalin are not as bad as other atheist make them out to be. I have no problem if you want to worship the puddle, just keep it away from my kids. I don't have enough faith to believe in that fairy tale.

I've had an epiphany! My god, a full blown revelation! We can all be haters, as long as we do it from the left side of the fence, and not the right side! How could I have been so blind? All the hate rant levelled at me has convinced me that I was wrong for picking my side to hate from. Since I wish to be a bigot, my transgression was to not be on the side of the gays. that would have made my bigotry perfectly acceptable. All of those names and insults that I have received have shown me how wrong I was, to have missed out on being a liberal. The hate-fueled rants have convinced me that the gays are really the lovers and peaceful ones. Silly me... Chongo has especially me shown the true way to practice tolerance. By his use of the children of some of the posters, he has shown me that his point of view is the correct one, the delicate one. By asking KiMare about abortion, he has shown me the practice of love at work. How could I have missed these valuable points?

I want the best possible people running this country, not mirror images of gender and skin tones. I read your rant earlier about our next President needs to be a latino woman, if you really want to be fair, since the land was originally native Americans, the next leader needs to be that. Let's see how far that circus goes before we are no country anymore. We saw enough of Hilary's incompetence in Benghazi.

Chongo, would you show me some more tolerance, by having me banned again? Please? Your suppression of my right to freedom of speech has taught me about the real use of the First Amendment.
