Republicans want members of their party to stop making controversial comments about rape. That includes those idiots from the Tea Party too.

The recent backlash after Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey attempted to explain defeated Senate candidate Todd Akin's rape comments.

They can't help it, there stupid republicans and tea party members trapped in the 16th century mind set.

i've read brian's steady commentary on topix for a few yrs in this and other threads. ya know, there's a whole lot of other threads besides this one, buddy.
so, please do tell us what "all" means in regards to the 14th amendment. seated judges have already decided this, but i'm sure it'd be worth a chuckle or 3 to read your thoughts on how "all" excludes one gender or race or group from the protections and guarantees stated in the 14th amendment.
The blacks aren't accepting the forth amendment! They are being little scroungers to the country, so they ought to be kicked out! A blind constitutional people pleasing follower are you? We republicans still own the constitution, not you!

Why do you bother supporting anti homosexuality but yet reject monogamy? Is it because you don't support your God lorally like a good believer and just to gain a little pride in yourself? You reject the branches you came from! What a rebellious child of God! I accept and loyally fight for Gods name on all fronts, and yet you are too lazy for that! What does proverbs say about lazy men? Were you lazy as a child as well?
I'm sorry that you are relatively new here, allowances must be made for that, I expect. I am a witch, stated that some time ago, but i do not refute the presence of God, my religion accepts all others, the only one that does, I think. However, I shall answer your questions.
1) I have no problem that people want to be gay, that is their choice.
2) I do not reject monogamy, merely including polygamy as a valid choice, when discussing the possibility of striking down Prop 8.
3) My pride is alive, and well, thank you.
4) My branches are British, so if you do a little homework, you might surmise that I embrace my branches, and trees on the whole.
5) You may fight for God, I have no problem with that.
6) As per calling me lazy, I must laugh, as I work between 12 and 16 hours a day, I drive trucks, and am often at work, both on the road and as a local driver. Never suffered from laziness, but thank you for asking.

Glendora city hall has installed new methods to combat problems:

We are resolved to address these problems comprehensively and decisively. Since Chris Jeffers is under pressure to fix the problems he created.

City Hall has set up a whistle-blower system and made changes in its security department to discourage management employees from straying outside the law.

not allowed to call it a marriage?
these states and countries would tell you otherwise, bub :
Connecticut, Washington DC, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hamshire, New York, Vermont, Washington. Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden.
and since when do you get to define marriage for anyone else other than yourself? if that's the case, then who defined your marriage for you? and why did you let them?
Those aforementioned states are part of a current trend that is disturbing. I don't get to define marriage, I merely accepted that the world I had grown up in had common sense driving it, not like today. Today's world has gone mad. And I am against letting the minority of nutcases re-define it. It makes no sense to allow them to call themselves married, when marriage has a meaning that transcends time. If historical tradition means so little, then what good is it, at all ? What good is the title of "married", at all ? It is for legit couples to claim, not just any pretender that wishes to get some sort of financial gain from the government. If they wish to call themselves married, tough luck. Next thing that results from this will be calling apples oranges, and all sorts of mayhem will result from using the wrong words. Misidentification will make for much confusion.

Not all blacks are evil of course, but many are dirty little fools! But you probably already knew I wasn't actually assuming it that far. You picked this on purpose! Getting even more ideas? Do you have kids? Probably not, yet you claim you have grand kids!

show us where in the court documents that polygamy was included or specifically named in any way shape or form in the law or the law suit.
"It refused to allow any marriage, except between man and woman. Thus excluding polygamy, as it did SSM. Any argument that defends SSM must also defend polygamy, for the exact same reasons, freedom of choice" That is where, through omission.

....and that's what's happening now with the law suits circulating through the system regarding DOMA and Prop 8.
so far, all the seated judges that have heard the cases have agreed - the days are numbered for both laws.
Those lawsuits are a frivolous waste of time and taxpayer money, and those judges have only one option, that is to declare that they have no jurisdiction in this matter, unless the Constitution is, again, to be rewritten without authority.

1) No evil on my side, it was the Christians that burnt my kind, remember ? My side accepts your side.
2) I do not, but cannot rule it out, when discussing the redefinition of marriage laws.
3) My pride is alive and well, as I stated.
4) I don't eh ? I have spent much time in Great Britain, both as a civilian and in the military. My mother was from Walthamstow, and i spent much time there, and I have also lived in Ramsgate, and even done a stint as a despatch rider, operating out of Hendon, working for Hendon Central Cabs, look it up, right now, you will find it, right there in Hendon. Been all over the Isle of Thanet, and if you wish to quiz me on my "English 101", I will make you eat your hat, mate.
5) I do not fight God, He and I accept each other.
6) Mechanic ? May I ask where there came from, please ?
7) My dual nationality is still alive and well. Shall I place the picture of my British passport up, as an avatar, to disprove you ? Perhaps both my American passport, and my British one, in the same picture ?

So if Prop 8 is overturned, polygamy becomes legal? No, it doesn't. I wonder why.....
