S.F. Gay Rights Leader Arrested Over Child Porn:

S.F. CRIME:

Published 09:21 p.m., Monday, June 25, 2012:

San Francisco police have arrested veteran gay rights advocate Larry Brinkin in connection with felony possession of child pornography.

Brinkin, 66, who worked for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission before his retirement in 2010, was taken into custody Friday night. He spent the night in jail before he was released on bail, according to a spokeswoman for the sheriff's department.
The district attorney's office will decide Tuesday whether to file charges. "We're still reviewing the case," district attorney's spokeswoman Stephanie Ong Stillman said Monday.

Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.

Psalm 14:1-3 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds.

Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin is death... "

I Corinthians 6:9(NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Stupid, they weren't there originally, and then they were there. That's known as being "added".

You are so dumb!
LOL. Do you have some kind of point? If it's that you're a rambling idiot who thinks he's "Joe Constitution" because he saw some NatGeo Special about it, we get that already.

Good luck with that bigotry. You're stuck with Christians just like they're stuck with you!

Relax and suffer them. They suffer you.

Was not responding to your post, was responding to someone else, and used as an example of what they were trying to say and how it is inherently wrong

Yes, every child born was created from mixing sperm with an egg and being fertilized, but that doesn't mean the parents were always married and seeing as procreation is not a requirement to getting married......it's irrelevant!!!
Not quiet; marriage was invented as a cultural aid to procreation and parenting. That's why husband/wife marriage should be protected.

Not even in the same country at the time. Civil marriage was invented to secure the property rights of those who procreated and those who they procreated. Religious marriages followed quite sometime after.

Sorry, but you'd be wrong again.......and regardless of what the real reason behind marriage was......it matters not in today's society because things have changed......and not every couple who can procreate, WILL procreate and marriage ISN'T always involved.....and parenting DOESN'T rely on the couple being biologically related to the child in every circumstances!!!!

Get use to......Same-Sex Couples ARE getting married and raising children:-)

So you are saying people that marry that cannot or do not have children are not actually married?

I donít think you will get a large following with that.

What about a widow who has children, but the re-marries and does not have children in that marriage... you want to dissolve those marriages too?

I am not about to hand you or your religion that kind of power.

Besides there is nothing to protect, I am married ( heterosexual marriage ) and the 18,000 legal same sex marriages did not harm my marriage in anyway whatsoever. I understand your marriage may be more fragile, but mine doesnít need protection.

There you go again with that "you don't comprehend me" whining.

You're right, we don't. Because you are an idiot!
