Rose NoHo is always correct. You, on the other hand are always wrong, and too uneducated to know it. You don't like her because she puts you in your place and does it concisely.
Go and smoke some more crack. I've dissected Chongo many times, and you make many lies, like now. You're a joke. You may now explain how those evasions of his serve as him putting me in my place. I ask questions that he cannot answer, and you claim that as victory. You are about as irrational as he is, to claim that.

Oh, innuendos! You even not only betray your own God, but also your own fanatic fundamentalist doctrines! Big stonkers! You fanatical fundamentalists cherrypick the verse "be innocent to what is evil and be wise to what is good" to mean shelter children from the world and make them "innocent" and deranged as well as handicapped, and also as adults yourself refrain from, them! Of course that is ludicrous! But nice to know by using them you are even going agaist you own greed! I'm sure everybody dumps you out! Maybe that is why you are so loney!
OK, did you pay any attention to the part where I said I was a witch, and not a Christian ? I would have to have claimed to be a Christian, before you might have any claim that I was going against my own creed. Learn to read, you stupid F**K !

No, I am not interested in testing your ignorance, as I am sure that your ignorance is immutable. Invulnerable. Up to any test. Eternal ignorance is yours, and I will not try to reach the end of it.

Of what value is the opinion of the confused, Randy? You cannot back up one single piece of your argument with FACTS. All you offer are emotion-based arguments and hyperbole. There is no substance to your arguments.
Should we as a society value arguments against gravity?
Fact, miss thing.
I asked Chongo about some books, and even after getting past the twisting, I asked Chongo a "point blank" question about said books, and he gave me an evasion, so as to avoid having to admit the truth, namely that Pro-Gay Indoc books were and are being used in schhols. A question requiring a simple "yes" or a "no" answer, and he evaded. Fact.

Listen, boi, if you have any points to make, you'd best be making them, instead of asking inane questions about the way that we interact in here. You seem to ask for a lot of explanations from others. Don't you understand the way that we adults play ? I think you'd best go play some Pacman. You ain't coming on too well in here. You have tried to bring religion into this room, and that is fallacy. "Whispers": "no one cares". We're too busy having our fun, and right now, you've become the latest "funboi"...Tell me, how did you develop your communications system with God, anyway ? Did He send you an E-mail, or was it a phone call ? Meet Him in a pub, did you ? Did He tell you to look down on people ? Whether or not they wish to gain marriage rights, they are people that matter, even Chongo, who would not deign for a second to treat me the same way that I treat him, even though we go after each other quite a bit. Chongo can defend himself just fine. But I do not think that Chongo would defend me, for a second, still, I tell you that even Chongo is not a "trivial, worthless" person, contrary to my posts to him state. You are, in my opinion, more of the "trivial, worthless" type, than anyone else in here, due to your view that you are here to "hold us to account". Go peddle your sorry ass elsewhere.
1) Lost!
2) Lost!
3) You should hurt people just because you don't like them? Thats how it all goes round here is it?
4)
5) Lost!

"Boi"? Don't lecture me about grammar till you've got it right, SONNY! I already told you that sort of baby talk wouldn't work with me!

I know you aren't a christian. But you said you are an agnostic, and respect that God could exist. So you are being rebellious to him by choosing to be a witch? If you choose to switch to theism, I'm sure God wouldn't let you in his door anyway!

He'll deny it but he once posted a wicked rant against poly. Wish I saved the post number. Sounded like some quacked out fundie ranting against same sex marriage! He actually screamed "What about the children?"! Rose_NoHo of course gave him a pass.
Of course he did, what else could we expect ? Truth and fair play ?

Oh, so its even worse, you don't even care for self restraint with condor, and not exposing others without them letting you and being open, and before they are ready! Come back when you've learnt to do that! And certaintly don't call me boi, in fact not even bro, till you've learnt that little aphorism!

Death threat. I remember it. She's done it to me too. Maybe Mr. Hudson and I will file a class action suit! Good idea. Sue you too!
You like to throw around those high falutin' fancy legal terms implying you are a lawyer.
Of course I always knew you were just a dopey jackass trying to fool us and impress us but one could easily assume you were a lawyer when you do that.
I never made any assumption that he was a lawyer, merely thought I'd seen someone post that he'd had some sort of legal training, but perhaps I was mistaken, rare but it happens. Class action, interesting idea, that...

It is a very desperate attempt to change the subject or include other things for outrage sake.
I no longer believe some people here that say they are for or against something while watching them try and undermine others
Unlike the inclusion of Loving V Virginia, which had nothing to do with SSM, but is always used, by Chongo, in seeking to bloster his side ? More double standardization, from the weak side...

If your shallow ass had read any of the post with the titles, you'd have seen the little report of the content of each of those books.
Try it now, here is the source of the list that I posted: http://ncac.org/LGBTQ-Bans-and-Challenges

And Tango Makes Three
By Justin Richardson and Henry Cole (Simon and Schuster)
And Tango Makes Three is based on the true story of two male penguins raising a chick in the Central Park Zoo. According the American Library Association it was the most challenged book of 2006, 2007 and 2008. One incident at a Loudoun County, Virginia elementary school involved the book’s removal from shelves in a decision by the local superintendent. There was an immediate backlash and many called for a reconsideration. Opponents of the book claimed that it promoted a ‘homosexual agenda.’ In another incident at a Southwick, Massachusetts elementary school, a librarian claimed she feared losing her job after introducing a class of second graders to the story. The librarian subsequently received a letter from her principal requesting that she ‘take [the] matter seriously and refrain from disseminating information that supports alternative styles of living,’ and that,‘further infractions [could] result in discipline up to and including suspension and/or termination of employment.’ In a third incident, the book was ordered off bookshelves in one of North Carolina’s largest school districts in Charlotte in 2006.

Angels in America
By Tony Kushner (Broadway Play Publishing, Inc.)
Angels in America was challenged at Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Massachusetts after protests from a community member who objected to its sexual, religious and racial content, and public attacks made by a local organization that called the play ‘pornography.’ However, after a major outcry from students and other community members, including a student who wrote an op-ed (available here), it was decided that the book would still be taught in the Deerfield AP English class.

Am I Blue? Coming Out of the Silence
By Marion Diane Bauer (Tricycle Press)
Am I Blue? Coming Out of the Silence was one of 55 books that parents in Fayetteville, Arkansas petitioned to have removed from school libraries. The parents formed Parents Protecting the Minds of Children and objected to the profane language and depictions of sexuality in the book. They also accused librarians and other opponents of their efforts of promoting a homosexual agenda. PPMC objected specifically to the book because of its gay content, as well as the fact that proceeds from the sale of the book went to Parents and Friends of Gays and Lesbians.

Annie on My Mind
By Nancy Garden (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
Annie on My Mind was published first in 1982 amidst controversy because of its positive portrayal of the story’s gay protagonists. There have been several attacks on the book because it centers on two 17 year old girls exploring their sexual orientation, though there are no explicit sexual encounters in the novel. The book was also reportedly banned in some Kansas City schools.
The book was at the center of a high-profile 1995 case in which US District Court Justice Thomas Van Bebber ruled that the novel must be returned to high school libraries where it had been removed because it was educationally suitable.

Athletic Shorts
By Christopher Crutcher (HarperCollins)
Click here for the Kids' Right to Read Project interview with Chris Crutcher.
Athletic Shorts was one of several books attacked in Vero Beach, Florida. Part-time librarian and graduate student Meagan Albright decided to focus on gay, lesbian, and transgendered themes as part of a University of South Florida course called Multicultural and Special Population Materials for Children and Young Adults and created a display honoring LGBTQ books and authors.

Baby Be Bop
By Francesca Lia Block (HarperCollins)
Click here to view Kids' Right to Read Project interview with Francesca Lia Block.
Baby Be Bop was one of 55 books that parents in Fayetteville, Arkansas petitioned to have removed from school libraries. The parents formed Parents Protecting the Minds of Children and objected to the profane language and depictions of sexuality in the book. They also accused librarians and other opponents of their efforts of promoting a homosexual agenda. PPMC objected specifically to Baby Be Bop because of its written style, saying ‘There are just plain too many teenager-aimed books nowadays that have this sort of choppy, half-conscious, half-delirious, not quite stream of consciousness style of writing.’
Baby Be Bop is also on a list of titles that a local group in West Bend, Wisconsin called West Bend Citizens for Safe Libraries objects to seeing in the local public library. In February, the group requested that the library board remove a page of recommended titles about LGBTQ issues for young people (including Baby Be Bop). They also demanded that the books be moved from the youth section of the library and placed with the adult collection,‘to protect children from accessing them without their parents’ knowledge and supervision.’ The Christian Civil Liberities Union - Milwaukee branch filed legal suit against the city of West Bend claiming its elderly plantiffs were damaged mentally and emotionally by the book's presence at the local public library. The claim seeks financial damages and the right to publically burn the library's copy of Baby Be Bop.

The Bermudez Triangle
By Maureen Johnson (Penguin)
On March 4th, 2007, in Oklahoma, a book challenge against The Bermudez Triangle was submitted to the school board of Bartlesville Public Schools in Oklahoma. Someone felt that a book had "no moral fiber" and asked for it to be removed "at once." The book chronicles the relationship between 3 female best friends and the trouble they run in to when 2 start to secretly date. The Bermudez Triangle was also challenged in the local Leesburg Public Library. Click here for the Kids' Right to Read Project interview with Maureen Johnson.
