&#9632;“It’s part of Satan I think to say that this is “gay.” It’s anything but gay.”— Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
&#9632;“If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.”— Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.

&#9632;“You have a teacher talking about his gayness.(The elementary school student) goes home then and says “Mom! What’s gayness? We had a teacher talking about this today.” The mother says “Well, that’s when a man likes other men, and they don’t like girls.” The boy’s eight. He’s thinking,“Hmm. I don’t like girls. I like boys. Maybe I’m gay.” And you think,“Oh, that’s, that’s way out there. The kid isn’t gonna think that.” Are you kidding? That happens all the time. You don’t think that this is intentional, the message that’s being given to these kids? That’s child abuse.”— Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
&#9632;“Don’t misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders.”— Senator Michele Bachmann, on homosexuality as a mental disorder, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
&#9632;“It isn’t that some gay will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality.”– Senator Michele Bachmann, on what will happen if her same-sex marriage ban amendment fails to pass in 2004, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News,” hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004

Several things I don't agree with you on. Mostly, I'm not in denial about who I am nor do I believe that I or any other gay person, is a defect or aberration. I think you've admitted being a Christian on here, but I'm not sure, but I have seen you post somethings that were pro religion. Anyway, in my opinion, Religion (regardless of which one)promotes population growth, by being anti-birth control, anti- abortion, anti- gay...etc and wanting people to have more children there by increasing 'souls'. If you believe in God or nature, wouldn't you think that this was a 'natural' way of controlling population growth because there are limited resources on this planet? It happens in other species. AND That just 'Maybe' religion is wrong to this promote so much population growth, wrong to discriminate against a natural phenomenon and call it defective or an aberration?

Your attempt to avoid the 'defect' label and to give purpose to homosexuality as population control both fail because of direct conflict with the principles of evolution. The article hinted at that fundamental problem.

-Mutations occur all the time. As the article noted, some are good, some are not. Homosexuality as a direct violation of the very basis of evolution, survival.

-There has never been a need OR time for evolution to develop a response to over population. Disease, starvation and war are far quicker. Evolution takes thousands of years to adjust.

I have not stated my belief system except to say I am a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian.

I find it interesting that people discount the Bible for things they think they understand, but ignore numerous profundities. I have barbarically pointed those out in an attempt to undermine denial.

People discount the Buybull because it is nothing more than the currently accepted mythology. Homer wrote more interesting stories.

So, you were without any moral fiber, and you can be swayed from your core beliefs ? You are no real man, then. I bet if you went to prison, you'd be wearing lipstick, in no time. It doesn't have to cause harm, it is plainly wrong, to mock marriage in this way. It doesn't cause any harm to let a child have a cookie before dinner, but it if it is wrong, then it is not allowed. This is no different, dumbfuck.
If you were really a Wiccan, you wouldn't feel gay marriage mocks marriage. And it doesn't.

Duh, as numerous posts have explained before, the impeachment of President Clinton failed, as the required 2/3 vote for guilty was not reached in the Senate.
Why is this so hard for you to understand? It is 1 fu$$ing sentence.

You have shown that you really don't understand the purpose behind the 2nd Amendment.

Hint: It had nothing to do with hunting.
