Gay marriage

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

Just a little thank you note to California. In the past all of the country laughed at Louisiana for its politicians. Thank y'all for electing Nancy Pelosi. Nobody can top her ignorance. Lmao at California.
I certainly didn't vote for the bitch. And while you are laughing why aren't you laughing at Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer? They certainly deserve as much laughter as does prom queen Nancy Pelosi.

Larry Flint ran for governor and I voted for him. I never voted for prom queen Nancy. Any way, these three do not speak for California.

First off, 50% of the population didn't want anyone so they didn't vote. Another 10% voted for 3rd party candidates leaving only 40% of Californians voting. The election was close, 51% of that 40% voted for Nancy Prom Queen. Which means that only 21% of Californians wanted her in Congress. That means that close to 80% of Californians didn't.

You want to laugh at 100% of a population for the actions of 20% of its citizens?

Again, did we need to do that to end the (more than) petty bickering regarding desegregation? No. We're better than that.
It's been a line fed to us that the private sector does everything better. they don't. They're just as corrupt and more greedy.
Right, and all blacks believe the same, act the same dance the same and all date the same. Just like gays. You can walk up to just any old gay on the sidewalk and ask, "What does the gay community think about blah blah blah", and any gay can speak for all gays because they are all identical.

Give me a break.

How many bakers do we know of in America who refused to bake a cake? One? And how many started advertizing they would bake gay wedding cakes after the story broke? Millions.

The private sector does do better than government, the examples are overwhelming, especially in education and home/fire protection. Why do you hate business owners?

Human beings are 50% good and 50% bad. Accept it, you can't change it. Well, it can be changed by a highly motivated individual for himself, but not for humanity. People always act in their own best self interest and when you pass laws that prevent people from acting in their best self interest there are going to be "unforeseen consequences".

I do not believe you have completely accurate information about what it was like for blacks in the south under Jim Crow. Aren't there any good Hollywood movies that give a pretty accurate idea about what it was like?

Did you see The Help? To Kill A Mocking Bird?

Then you pay for your private all male school. Why would I care?
Normal people will go to public schools where they will have a common sense of the basics, and their surroundings will more accurately reflect the real world when they graduate (which is part of learning.)
There is zero benefit from getting the government out of schools. This is your personal bias, nothing more.
I did pay for private schools as did my parents for me. Plus a whole lot of home schooling. I could speak 2 languages fluently by the time I entered the 7th grade. My parents felt it was important I attend the government indoctrination centers occasionally just to take the tests so I would have objective proof that private and home schooling was vastly superior to anything I would have received if I had attended the government schools.

When I did go to the public schools my gay cousin was picked on and I had to give more than one bully student an attitude adjustment.

""""" To boost the economy out of the recession, President Obama has chosen to spend an additional $100 billion on public schooling over the next two years. His education secretary, Arne Duncan, is touring the nation to promote this education “stimulus.”
However well-intentioned, their effort isn’t just futile; it’s also counterproductive.
Far from being an engine of wealth creation, the education system is bleeding the economy to death. The U.S. spends 2.3 times as much per pupil in real, inflation-adjusted dollars as it spent in 1970, but the return on this ballooning investment has been less than nothing.

Student achievement at the end of high school has been flat for nearly 40 years, according to a recent study by the Education Department, while the graduation rate fell over the same period, according to a report by James Heckman, a Nobel laureate economist.

If the efficiency of U.S. public schooling had merely remained at its 1970 level, the country would enjoy the equivalent of an annual $300 billion tax cut.

For those who haven’t heard, Washington State recently passed two important new laws – approval of gay marriages and legalized marijuana.
The fact that gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day makes perfect biblical sense because Leviticus 20:13 says,“If a man lies with another man they should be stoned.”

We just hadn’t interpreted it correctly before!

I am quoting the Bible which says eating children is rewarding.
The Bible also says abusing children is rewarding:
Prov. 23:13-14 ("Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell"),
Prov. 22:15 RSV ("Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him"),
Prov. 20:30 RSV ("Blows that wound cleanse away evil; strokes make clean the innermost parts"),
Prov. 13:24 RSV ("He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him"),
Prov. 19:19 ("Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying"),
Prov. 29:15 ("Thy rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother"),
Prov. 26:3 ("A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back <children are often foolish>"), and
Deut. 21:18-21 ("If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they chastise him, will not give heed to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city...and they shall say to the elders of his city,'This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard. Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall purge the evil from the midst").
OKAY finally a response thank you know the bible well. Your reply to Roses post concerning not having children rubbed me the wrong way and i was sarcastic. I admit i have not read the bible thoroughly i did not know which way you were going with your reply~
