The dregs are often referred to as coming from the bottom of the barrel and for the most part, have a decidedly negative connotation.

So that's he facts here, the Dregs are those religious spouting nut cases who haven't a clue and can't run their own closet style lives.

Its not a matter of a threat, but whether or not its sound public policy to fundamentally alter the social, historical, cultural, and legal institution of marriage.

I will grant you that Christianity and Catholicism specifically have probably done the most harm. But they are not alone, Islam is trying to catch up, but they are still a couple hundred years of harm behind.
Yet ignore the impact its had on Western Civilization. Why not share with us your vast intellect with us on that.

You are a supposed social worker and are ignorant of the plight of children in single parent homes???
You also might want to check your stats on America's direction.
Start with how well the education level of our high school graduates has prepared them for college. Then see how that compares with the rest of the world.
I guess you're denial goes beyond calling a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half equal to marriage.
Think about where your denial is taking you VV.
I also find it hard to believe this clown VeryVerbose has much education.

How would you know unless we go back in time and try it without Christianity and Catholicism? All you do is speculate. Waste of time.

Donít get me wrong, I could care less what words you use and I took your meaning ( as stupid as it was )
You can use the word irreguardless all day long and I wonít care, that isnt the point.
It is only quoting a part of what the dictionary said that is very telling about you. It is exactly the same way you use your bible.
Pick and choose, use this phrase, but not that phrase.
We will mention this from the old testament, but we wonít mention words that Christ used at all as it wouldnít support your hate campaign.
Yes. He can use a word any time he wants. But thanks for your totally unnecessary permission anyway! It's always funny.

I am talking about your picking and choosing which parts of the dictionary ( or bible ) you decide to quote or leave out to try and make yourselves right.
That is the telling part about you.
Here comes the infamous Big D "You're a liar!" straw man. Fun!

Irregardless of if you said it, you thought it wasn't a word. You are the dishonest one. As usual.

Education and knowledge are always good, ignorance is always bad, been that way for all of history.

Education and Knowledge are opposed to faith, and Faith is opposed to education and knowledge.

It is like you saying the world would have been worse off without Hitler, or Stalin.

The destruction of knowledge at Alexandria set the human race back a thousand years or more.

Learn to read idiot, that isnít at all what happened, I was only commenting on how the dictionary was edited to try and make the point, same way the bible is edited by that creep.

I never once complained about the use of the word, heck I have used it

There was plenty of time and many areas where any belief system or lack thereof had time to show its stuff.

The simple fact is, the Christian West stands out.

But hey, when you've got dumb and dumber discussing history with hatred and bigotry, this is what you get.
