You do realize that Mr. Hudson and I are not the same person? While both of us are reasonable and intelligent men, we are quite different in that I support same sex marriage and Mr. Hudson does not.
This is a discussion forum, if we censor out differing opinions, you'll have nothing to whine about and it would be boring. What, you're gonna talk amongst your self about redecorating tips?
Mr. Hudson and I have the same right to express our opinions as you Fruitloops. You have no right or authority to tell us different.
No, he does not realize that fact, as there is something in the water, down in his part of Ohio. I was rather of the opinion that it would be fun to let him blunder on, in his blind stumbling, but, what the hell...
It would certainly be a boring forum, to have nothing else to discuss, except redecoration and make-up tips and recipes for fruitcakes...Bet if we went silent for 2 days, this room would get soft. We both understand that they are lost, without us. Keep up the good work, Mike.

I don't know what the biased mod is thinking banishing the only posters who keep this thread lively.
Dopes like Rose_NoHo never get banished. Funny that.
I know, Chongo gets around the filters and censors and manages to call people "b!tch" with impunity, while others get censored, and banned, for much less..Think I'll start reporting her abuses and see what doesn't happen...

Perhaps it was one of these posts that had gotten me banned..

"I was posting, earlier this week, about what is happening in America right now, and many do not realize that we are already finished. also, there are many who tell me to stop "spreading propaganda' when I post such things....Like the Nazi takeover of Germany, in the early 1930's. many thought it to be the best times that Germany ever experienced, right up until one morning, when they awoke to the real nightmare, of course, it was too late, then, to make a difference."

Or...

"Even had "rose-no-ho, whom I call Chongo, make mockery by asking me if a shadow government had subverted the election process. LOL. That occurred a long time before any of us were born. The 2000 election was the boldest showing of this phenomenon, the Supreme Court handed Bush a presidency that he didn't win. That election was so filthy that the country should have erupted, but little notice was made mention of it, in the media, and America died that day. The Bushes have been running the country since the 1930's. they even financed the Third Reich, and their control is so complete, that even today, no one knows this. They bankrolled the German War Machine, and it was hushed up. Next time you drive past any of the Thyssen Steel factories, or mills, give them a "Heil Hitler" salute, they were the very company making the weapons that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and Allies. I was talking to a truck driver about that company, because he was driving a truck from the Thyssen mill, and he had no idea about the history of his employers. Look up the history of this company, and you will see, for yourself...Active and thriving, in America...Google "Bush Crime Family" and marvel. How could this have happened ?"

I think that you are not reading. You are reacting, without true understanding. I have already answered your questions as to belief in God, and also explained my stance against homosexuality. Agnosticism cannot be a religion because, by its very nature, it denies the plausibility of religious belief.
I wasn't saying whether it was a religion, I was saying you believe God could exist then you should be careful in how you treat him, and not to wake him up! And gay rights doesn't mean polygamy, different fools could have different ideas about gay rights, and some could believe one should be only bound to someone of the same sex or opposite sex. But you aren't stupid enough for such generalizations were you? You were only using that "generalization" as an excuse not to defend monogamy weren't you?

Because polygamy and incest are as ridiculous as homosexuality, yet the gays argue that gayness is correct, but incest and polygamy are not, and I am highlighting their hypocrisy, when they respond to this conundrum. Don't you understand the subtlety at work here ? LOL, catch on to the game, will you ?
Yes, but they might have their own reasons for believing that incest and polygamy is wrong. That generalization was really an excuse wasn't it?

So you are a complete traitor to Gods word now? Being an agnostic does not make it an excuse as normal integrity of an agnostic would accept that God could exist and that he shouldn't be betrayed.

What is hilarious is that the verbosity of your posts. You seem to have a need to sound intelligent. You're also using words with negative connotation just for the sake of throwing in negative spin. And it makes you seem really dumb. Or can you explain how permitting a small portion of the population access to marriage is "gender apartheid?"
I'll try to use short words so sheesh can follow. Gays have always had access to marriage under the same rules as everyone else. Meredith Baxter and Oscar Wilde are two examples.

Same sex marriage doesn't include more of the population, intersex, gays, lesbians, transgenders, and bisexuals have always married. Same sex marriage creates a new standard of marriage that include gender segregation. Apartheid is just a long word for discrimination and separatism: policies that same sex marriage supporters support.

Gender diversity? If you count only male and female you're limited to two genders.
Most same sex marriage supporters don't understand human nature; male and female genders are all there are.

Sheesh is confusing gender with orientation. I find most same sex marriage supporters are confused by any argument that doesn't rely on emotions so they can feel good about themselves.

The standard constitution only allowed the opposite sex. Gay rights are being overturned in the states, originally they weren't allowed. The american constitution comes from the british inhabitants who would have religion.

If I read your post correctly, you are saying gay marriage rights are to be separated from polygamists rights, yes ? I see them both as erosion factors, in the destruction of societal fabric. If we are going to allow gays to marry, then why not allow anything, at all ? My position is that allowing gay people to marry is tantamount to having no meaning to the term "married". That if we allow gays to marry, but not polygamists, then we are merely lowering the bar a little bit, in the name of equality, but not truly embracing equality. Exercising the same discrimination that the gays are arguing against, but at a different level.

No, it wasn't. It is the embracing of "true equality", at it's basest level. The final breakdown of the centuries of refinement that we have striven for. It's no excuse, it's the arrival at the final destination that SSM is driving at, whether they like it, or not. If we lower the bar for them, then we must lower it all the way. Remove it completely. Else, we are taking half steps. Saying that"Group A can have what it wants, but not Group B". Where is the equality in that ?

And, what does it matter if "they" have their reasons for for believing that incest and polygamy are wrong ? We heterosexuals had our reasons for believing that SSM is wrong, but "they" have told us to go to hell. "They" decided that what "they" wanted was OK, but now, "they" wish to say that what others want is not ? Unacceptable. Prejudicial and discriminatory, as "they" were whining about, only yesterday, "unfair" "they" said, but now, it is fine for them to set the bar against others ? No sir, if we allow any changes at all, then why waste any more time with silly standards ?

He and I have been getting along the whole time that we have been posting, not arbitrarily picking when to agree. He has adopted the same position that I have, re you. Letting you have your way, as long as it provided the amusement that we all in here for. Like the Springer Show. You have started to post against him, and he has checked you, when necessary. Pick your targets better, and I am sure he will allow you to exist peacefully. Snap at the time, and in the wrong direction, and you will be kicked.

Yep, same here...Then I check on the forum, through Internet Explorer, and find that I am absent, and it is done. Banned. Censored, just like that.
