Sir, I am no Christian, my religion allows for all others, but as Chongo had to start running her coqqgobbler, I will not be including my wife or marriage in this post anymore. I did enjoy the brief exchange on the subject, however. I wasn't under the impression that you were running me down, also. And congrats on the marriage of your daughters, hope they weren't too expensive and I am sure that they were every penny.
:-D

They were expensive ( 2 daughters 2 months apart ) but my wallet is finally recovering ( needed CPR there for a while )

I am not running you down, in fact I find the whole Jr High school level exchange here tiresome.

But they are happy and I approve of their husbands ( not that it was a consideration they were worried about ) but I do anyway.

Thanks

GLENDORA - The City Council will consider approving the appointment of a new finance director today.

Josh Betta, who has been the finance director for South Pasadena for the last seven years, has been selected for the position. He spent 12 years working in Monterey Park when Glendora City Manager Chris Jeffers was the top executive there.

Betta said that the chance to work with Jeffers again motivated his decision to leave South Pasadena.

"My respect for Chris Jeffers, and my enthusiasm for working with him again are major factors in wanting to take the job," he said.

Betta's tenure at South Pasadena drew the ire of city staff during a brief period in spring 2006. They claimed Betta created a "hostile work environment."

The complaint alleged that Betta had made staff uncomfortable during a heated argument he had with another staff member.

South Pasadena Mayor Michael Caccioti said a city investigation revealed no problems.

"Nothing serious ever happened," said Caccioti. "Betta has been an excellent finance director."

The complaint was aired by a union representative at a meeting where Betta had a $10,000 raise approved by the city. The timing, said Betta, was not coincidental.

"The raise came at a time when the unions hadn't seen a pay increase for three years," said Betta. "It made me a target."

Betta described the incident as him "yelling at an employee behind closed doors."

He dismissed the idea that he had created a hostile work environment.

Yolanda Vasquez, a South Pasadena city employee and union leader, seemed to mostly remember the union's displeasure about his raise.

"Our main conflict with the city was that the kept saying they didn't have any funds," Vasquez said, "then they gave this huge raise to Betta."

She did recall that several staff members had complained about an "outburst" from Betta.

However, Jim Luttrell, a retired city union representative, said the complaints were minimized.

"Betta's a tyrant," said Luttrell. "Half the city employees were terrified of him ... I'd see people come out of his office crying."

Luttrell said he had pushed local union members to make a complaint to state agencies.

Jeffers said he had heard about the complaints, but based on a background check and recommendations from supervisors and co-workers in South Pasadena, he thought Betta was the best candidate for the job.

Glendora Mayor Ken Herman said he had not heard about the incident, but that any potential problems with Betta would be discussed at today's meeting.

"The negatives will be discussed fully," said Herman. "I don't want to buy anyone else's problems."

You are hitting it off well with Mr. Hudson that is very touching and it makes sense, you both have similar views, you would deny equal rights to certain groups. Mr. Hudson to homosexuals and you to some but not all Christians if I understand you correctly.

Myself, I believe marriage is a good thing for society and for the persons in the marriage. And I don't see why any marriage harms anyone else. Therefore I support all marriages. Including of course same sex and poly.

I respect yours and Mr. Hudson's opinions as equal to mine.

Now lets get back to the Jr. High School sh!t!

You're are big silly dopes tonight! Get a room!

Fun!

Hey Studly, have you and Mike DiDouchie hooked up in person or are you still in the masturbation phase of your bromance?

It would be quite a story:"A chance meeting of two homophobes on a thread about same sex marriage ends up being a life change even for both fells"

... If you boys end up getting "gay married" you might get a cable movie deal on "Lifetime" if your really lucky, "Ovation".

This is normal dirty tricks politics for West Covina, California.

Assuming the Republican magots from West Covina are behind all the phony pumped up charges against Roger H.

A lightning rod since he was a member of the West Covina City Council, Hernandez this past weekend after a woman filed a restraining order against him.

This woman could have been a plant all along to bring down Roger H..

Because, stupid, Brian G made the claim that "no moral thinker in history ever advocated same-sex marriage.". It's up to him to back his up his claim. Duh.

Yeah, really.
It says "Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race", not "Marriage and procreation are rights". And they are wrong about marriage being fundamental to the very survival of the race.
That's funny, the SCOTUS is the Loving v Virginia decision didn't have the trouble connecting the dots you are having.

Or don't you like Loving V Virginia anymore?

"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival. Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942)."- Loving V Virginia

Really?
" We are dealing here with legislation which involves one of the basic civil rights of man. Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race."- Skinner V Oklahoma
