I am not, it was not the Saxons that sacked Rome
Rome fell not long after becoming a Christian nation after the emperor Constantine converted ( I did not say it was the cause )
There was no "Roman Catholic Church" until long LONG after these events
Donít worry, as you screw up history I will be here to correct it for you.
Rome existed, but caesar and the other white robed emperors wrelm no longer existed. Rome itself lost its empire due to the saxons and was changed and then later converted to christianity. Why else do you think our nation is renouned for being Christian? Because the Roman catholics originated from Britain and also inhabited Christianity in their own nation! Still very stupid! Making up even more ideas then eh?

No Rome lost its empire to the Goths who sacked Rome, and Rome had been Christian empire for over 100 years when that happened. Rome had converted to Christianity after the conversation of Constantine.

Read just a little history, even childrenís books before you post, what they are telling you from the pulpit is made up crap.

Roman Catholics did exist until many hundreds of years later

Do you understand what you are defending?
So you would have preferred Europe be Islamic much sooner than it will be? Read about the Ottoman Empire for a taste of what is coming.

Do you know anything but gay twirl and bigotry about history?

But the bottom line is, you are excusing the slaughter of innocent people in horrific barbarity by equating it to a dissimilar situation that may or may not be horrific. Put simply, you are saying two wrongs make a right.

Wrong.

All I know is someone was talking about the fall and making a whole lot of incorrect statements about it.

Why it fell was an interesting discussion, as it is opinions, but someone was making blatantly incorrect statements as if they got their info from some cult Sunday school

maybe they'll read & educate themselves.

i doubt it, but at least it's there for those that prefer to educate themselves.

i love it when the proclaim just how it fell....and historical fact proves them wrong. typically those guys go off in a huff-n-puff, trying to protest that what is written, vetted and published is wrong and that they are the correct ones in the discussion, yet have nothing to substantiate their claims. LOL. makes me think of how a balloon sounds when it looses it's air. pffffffft.

have a great weekend, bigD

Oh no, just someone terribly misinformed

A lair would be someone that makes up something and says that someone else said that when they did not.

A mistake, or lack of education is one thing, falsifying what others say is something totally different.

the issues at hand are regarding the legal contract between 2 consenting adults that wish to marry. stick to the topic. when you can rationally discuss with insulting people, then chime in. without the smartasz smirks and ridiculous comparisons. until then, let the grownups talk at the grown up table.
I ask two serious pertinent questions, and you recklessly slough them off, claiming it's okay because "you play games too".

Once again you expose the weakness of your argument, the lack of character you possess, and now you add to it silly immaturity.

You mistake the sinking of the knife of reality to the hilt into the belly of denial and twisted with a smirk for a cheap smartasz comment. Hardly the same.

Go back to your video games and gay porn.

sounds like you know a lot about that sort of stuff. good luck with that chum.

the reality is that judges have ruled in favor of striking down Prop 8 and DOMA is teetering on it's last lungfuls of air as we wait until March when the Supreme Court considers the cases.

your opinions indeed mean nothing in light of the writings of judges. you, in the end, are a mere internet stranger with no credibility, in stark contrast to that of seated judges.

Yes, I have found that most people that have it THAT wrong are more interested in believing what is not true, than knowing what is.

You too, looking forward to a nice weekend!:)

It seems everyone who disagrees with you is a liar. We've all allegedly "made up something and said that you said it when you did not".

And it always happens just as you are losing the argument. And you never accuse anyone who agrees with you of it. Funny that.

Limiting the number of husbands a woman has seems to me just as much an infringement as limiting the gender of whom that woman can marry.
