If those numbers are accurate, it sure rules out the "gay marriage is wrong because they have anal sex" argument.
Nothing wrong with anal sex. I just like to remove the spin when someone spins it that it's more common among heteros. It's not.

Sure more heteros do it, but if you want to spin it like that we can say more heteros are smart, righteous, better looking and better persons than gays. That's spin too.

The issue was children loving their biological father and mother distinctly.

Just as biological fathers and mothers love their children distinctly.

Rose_BlowHole is always all government GOOD! "Con-dumbs" BAD! And she is adamant about that and very unreasonable. She won't speak to me. Ah good times! Have fun with the old girl and good luck.
Rose and I have proven that people can disagree, perhaps even be 100% opposites and still be respectful and considerate while continuing to discuss the issues. I am not sure I need luck, I respect that Rose has views different from mind and that she is willing to share her views with me instead of like how the anti-freedom peanut gallery ridicule, call names and insult everyone who as you say, does not wave the rainbow flag.

Rose is correct that government threats did bring an immediate change, although I disagree that change was all good for black people. What I advocate would have taken longer, yes I admit that, but I still insist it would have been a sweeter victory for blacks to see that they do not need the federal governments threats to force white people to treat them decently.

The feds only came in with their threats AFTER blacks had got the ball rolling demanding they be treated with the dignity and respect that all human beings deserve from a government and few of us ever get. Government is the enemy of all people and very few of the things it involves itself in are legitimate functions of government.

Glenn Beck says Hillary Clinton is a lesbian, a California mayor thinks homeless people choose to live in poverty, and a Democratic rep plans to hand out KKK hoods at a GOP convention.

Four years after the Iowa State Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality, the majority of the Hawkeye State’s Republican candidates for U.S. Senate have promised to block the appointment of any federal judge who doesn’t follow “natural law” or possess a “biblical view of justice.” An organization called The Family Leader, one of the top financial supporters of the 2010 movement to oust the marriage-equality judges, hosted a forum for the Iowa candidates over the weekend. The moderator, right-wing commentator Erik Erikson, asked the candidates what they look for in a federal judge. Sam Clovis, who thinks the only reason Obama hasn’t been impeached yet is because he’s black, said judicial nominees must be able to “explain to me natural law and natural rights.” Matt Whitaker said judges must be “people of faith” and have “a biblical view of justice.” Not content to be outdone, State Sen. Joni Ernst said judges should have an “understanding [of] where the Constitution came from and our laws, and they all did come from God.”

Glenn Beck: Hillary Clinton Is a Gay Copycat

Glenn Beck accused Hillary Clinton of being both a lesbian and one of those “coward” politicians who only back things like gay marriage once they’ve become popular. One of his radio show co-hosts noted that Hillary Clinton came out in favor of same-sex marriage last year, to which he replied,“What I just heard you say is that Hillary came out last year? Because I didn’t think that had officially…” His attempt at a joke trailed off as his co-host, not laughing, continued what he was saying. But Beck wasn’t done.“I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular,” he said.

Democratic Rep. Plans to Hand Out KKK Hoods at GOP Convention

Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Brett Hulsey, a Democratic state representative, announced Thursday that he will hand out Ku Klux Klan hoods at the state GOP convention this weekend. Hulsey called the items “Republican Party hats.”

“biblical view of justice.”

THE DEATH PENALITY

If biblicists are going to quote Old Law with respect to executing homosexuals, then why don't they quote verses which prescribe the death penalty for a wide variety of acts other than homosexuality?

All of the following warrant execution:

striking your father or mother Ex.21:15
kidnapping Ex. 21:6 RSV
cursing your father or mother Ex. 21:17 RSV, Lev. 20:9
touching a mountain Ex. 19:12 RSV
allowing your ox to gore someone Ex. 21:29
lying with a beast Ex. 22:19 RSV, Lev. 20:15-16
sacrificing to other gods Ex. 22:20 RSV
failing to observe the Sabbath Ex. 31:14-15
drinking strong drinks while in the tabernacle Lev. 10:9
committing adultery Lev. 20:10 RSV, Deut. 22:22
lying with your father's wife Lev. 20:11 RSV
lying with your daughter-in-law Lev. 20:12 RSV
being a medium or a wizard Lev. 20:27 RSV
being a witch Ex. 22:18
being a priest's daughter and becoming a whore Lev. 21:9 RSV
Blaspheming the name of the Lord Lev. 24:16
cursing Lev. 24:14 RSV
coming near the priesthood Num. 3:10
being a stranger who comes near the congregation's tabernacle Num. 3:38
gathering sticks on the Sabbath Num. 15:32-35
serving or worshipping other gods Deut. 17:2-5 RSV
showing contempt for the Lord's priest or judge Deut. 17:12 NIV
failing to obey one's parents Deut. 21:18-21
not being a virgin on your wedding day Deut. 22:20-21 NIV
being a betrothed virgin who did not cry out when seduced Deut. 22:23-24
having relations with your wife and her mother Lev. 20:14
telling people to seek other gods Deut. 13:2,5
being a false prophet Deut. 18:20

Biblicists teach, preach, and attempt to reach others with many OT moralisms, but are not adverse to selectivety using that which suits their interests. If they like an OT verse, they expound it; if they don't, they say that's from the Old Law and we aren't under the Old Law anymore. But aren't the Ten Commandments part of the Old Law? Yes, they say, but we are obligated to follow them because they are reported in the NT (Matt. 19:16-18, Mark 10:17-19, and Luke 18:18-22). People who assert as much should note that Jesus omitted half of the Ten Commanments. But even if they had been present, we would still be under all the Old Law, including the Decalogue, according to Christ ("And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of law to fail"--Luke 16:17, see also Matt. 5:18-19). If "sin is transgression of the law", as 1 John 3:4 says, then Christians should be following all of the Old Law.

It's not a matter of being "black people", but of being a small, discriminated against minority, In this specific case I'm talking about housing discrimination.
Certainly you have the right to live anywhere you can afford and people are stupid to discriminate against people because of race, sexual orientation etc. And this is a question that so far no one is willing to discuss; The property owner has rights, as you have rights.

If via the power of the government you are able to force a land lord to rent to you or sell to you he is not free to do with his property as he wishes. The government gives you the power to force your wants and desires on the property owner which means for you to have your wishes he must be prevented from having his wishes.

Yes it is wrong for a land owner to discriminate against people because of race etc. but it is also wrong, in my eyes, for the government to force one citizen to give up something so another citizen can have something.

There are several issues at work here. In the south under Jim Crow government forced people to obey their racist laws, these laws were threats, "here is what you must do and here is how we will hurt you if you don't." If the government did not force white people to discriminate against blacks in everything, slowly, yes very slowly, things would have changed. First one white person would have been a good decent person, then another and another until those racists in power got old and died.

I told you what happened to my uncle who married someone who wasn't white. How is that any of the governments business? The government has no business telling us who we can marry any more than they can tell us what bedroom activities we can engage in, in the privacy of our own homes.

""""Louisi ana Making Bible State Book

Louisiana state officials successfully took the first steps to make the Bible the official state book on Thursday. The proposal cleared the House Committee on Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs by a vote of eight to five. Rep. Thomas Carmody, a Republican who proposed making the King James Bible the official state book, said "This is not about establishing an official religion.” Rep. Stephen Ortego, a Democrat, had concerns, though not about the inclusion of religion. "Let's make this more inclusive of other Christian faiths, more than just the ones that use the King James version," he said.

You and I can agree to disagree too. If we were all in perfect agreement we would all live in the same house boat.

Do you remember when I first encountered you and suggested that if you wanted the rubes to understand what you were saying you should stop calling them your affectionate pet names?

You immediately called me a name, I do not remember what, and I realized what you were doing and decided to support your cause. I realized it is not you who are the problem, but the low IQ'd rubes who only care about their rights and never about the rights of others. They are illogical, unreasonable, argumentative and some are literally insane.
