A muslim Prophet cartoon book has been published in France as of January 2013.

A French magazine Charlie Hebdo, has published a 65-page cartoon book portraying the life of the Prophet muslim Mohammed.

This of course will bring out the crazy religious nut cases world wide.

Everybody is going to get on their knees in front of Jesus and use their tongue?

My sentiments are with "whyvote". I don't recall if the people of Calif. have voted on this issue 2 or 3 times and each time said emphatically they do not want same sex marriage to be legal in this state. So how in the hell does one damned judge once again get to decide what the law should be, if my memory serves me correctly it says "We The People", not me a single judge who doesn't give a damn about the peoples vote. Why does one person on this state or nation have the right to decide what any law should be. That is why we have the election process.

I think this judge should be removed from power in a very public forum.

This is supposed to be a free nation not a dictatorship.

Yes. I love my Homosexual friends and the lesbians but your post is typical of muddled thinking as it relates to Biblical truth. Plants do not "grow" because of the Sun. Plants grow because the Sun produces light. This allows the process of Photosynthesis to produce chlorophyll, an essential component for the production of sugar, a necessary process that allows plants to grow.
Stupid, plants can't grow without the sun, yet the creation myth of Genesis has them growing before the sun was created. And it wouldn't be just a matter of light, without the sun, the earth would be close to absolute 0 degrees.
Ronald wrote:
Had you actually read the Bible, rather than just repeating snippets from lists of supposed contradictions that are compiled by others, you would have learned that God created light prior to his having created the sun and the moon. According to the historical record:
"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2)
"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." (Genesis 1:3)
"And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness." (Genesis 1:4)
Yet still no sun. Day and night before there was a sun! Absurd.
Ronald wrote:
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so." (Genesis 1:11)
"And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good." (Genesis 1:12)
As I said, plants growing, yet still no sun. Absurd.
Ronald wrote:
" And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also." (Genesis 1:16)
And now the sun is created, after the plants. It's also clear they didn't know moonlight is just a reflection of sunlight.
Ronald wrote:
"And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth," (Genesis 1:17)
There is no firmament! The sun and moon aren't "set" in anything. The heavens are virtually 100% empty space.

Yes. I agree. Carpet munching is no way to come to the understanding of simple truth. Why not just try to relax and reread my post? While it is true that the Sun produces light that allows plants to grow, the sun is unnecessary if other light sources exist. None of my Homosexual friends and the lesbians munch carpets because they desire to come to the understanding of truth. Shouldn't you emulate them? According to the instruction manual:

"Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:" (Isaiah 46:12)

"I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass." (Isaiah 48:3)

You can't tell a woman from a man by looking. LOLSER!
Bet you had a grip on a transvestite's member somewhere between Bakersfield and Fresno.

It's supposed to be a nation where everybody gets equal rights. Even when that's not popular with knuckle draggers like you.

BS. Without the sun, the earth would be close to 0 degrees Kelvin. Face it, the creation story is a myth made up by ignorant Bronze Age goat herders.
