The whole gamut of Christian religions are constantly shooting themselves in the foot over these issues. Stop trying to dictate Old (Jewish) Testament policies and perceptions over this. Especially, where Jesus said in Matthew 19:12 ("There are three kinds of eunuchs........."). The New (Christian) Testament dispels all of these Old Testament myths.

Go mom! Artificial insemination? So if you can't get pregnant the old fashion way you're screwed? Uhm, sort of. Whatever! What is the church's problem with that and where does the bible back them up?

God didn't create her gay son.
God didn't give her a gay son.
She and her husband/lover did that.

She doesn't like her employers rules so she left.
She did it the right way.

Face it kiddo, if you drink the kool-aide, and clearly you do, homosexuals are children of God too.

I asked him if he was responsible for you, he said hell no, isn't that obvious.

Congratulations to Mrs. Shumate. She can now find a job where the rules of engagement are more to her liking. The school, in turn, will find a replacement for her who will willingly abide by the rules her employer sets. She probably won't have a "look at me!" moment in the press like Shumate, but the salary will likely offset that mild disappointment.

Win/win for all involved.

I have neither said, nor have I implied that. You have, rather childishly, made that inference.

You have, on the other hand, stated in post #5 "I asked him if he was responsible for you, he said hell no, isn't that obvious."

This clearly implies that you think you speak with the almighty.

Would you care to confirm or deny?

You do it whenever you post. You have tried to convince people that you know the constitution better than the supreme court. That's why I call you Justice Dumbass.

I gotta tell you though, your 3 is greater than two skit is hilarious.

Actually, I just advance a logical and factually supported argument, which is somewhat more sophisticated than simply calling names, as you do.

No, I have never claimed to know the document better, I have merely used it as the basis of my arguments. You might not that your own argument seem to be based in juvenile taunts.

Actually, you call me that because you lack a factually based, or otherwise intelligent argument. It isn't terribly surprising, you aren't the brightest bulb in the box.

Hey, what can I say, if you are too dumb to understand what equality is, or that two is greater than three, my material is hysterical.

Wondering, it is hysterical each and every time you make an a$$ of yourself for the enjoyment of others. You truly are a tool.

When you have no answer, change the subject. Maybe no one will notice.

Actually, I was responding with a completely valid question, that you cannot respond says more about you than me.

I've noticed that you have the mentality of a child, and a marked inability to make a rational argument.

Really, Wondering, I only converse with you when I want to further expose your own idiocy. You do an excellent job of doing so.

I suggest you go debate your concrete. It should prove a formidable foe for you.
