If you ever get an intelligent response from him, I want you to teach my dog to say "get off my porch" every time the mailman comes to the door.

Florida police are investigating a dispute between George Zimmerman and his wife Shellie, who called cops and said he had his hand on his gun, an official said.

Probably a lot easier with the dog- more intelligence and common sense.

We marry those people we're attracted towards and find mutual love.
That can be done without the state being involved.
Now genius....if you're gay wouldn't you be attracted to some adults of the same sex???
Gay means "happy" too. Who cares that self described "gay" people are attracted to the sane sex. No license needed for that, nor state obligation to grant one on that basis.
I think that's the point bright boy.

<quoted text>
I disagree... There are several verses that seem to indicate that God's covenant with mankind changed when He sent His Son to die for our sins.
Hebrews 10:8-10
First He said,“Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. Then He said,“Here I am, I have come to do your will.” HE SETS ASIDE THE FIRST TO ESTABLISH THE SECOND (emphasis added). And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 9:11-15
That is why He is the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, so that all who are invited can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them. For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant.
Hebrews 8:13
By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.
Galatians 3:13
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us…
Romans 7:4-6
So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. But now, by dying to what once bound us, WE HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM THE LAW SO THAT WE SERVE IN THE NEW WAY OF THE SPIRIT, AND NOT IN THE OLD WAY OF THE WRITTEN CODE (emphasis added).
John 1:17
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
----------
I honestly think that God is saying that He does not want to have a relationship with mankind that is built on a collection of 613 laws. He wants one built on faith and communication through the Spirit.
Gross conceptual error. The Covenant given to the children of Israel was to be eternal, The "New" Covenant mentioned in Jeremiah was to be that same old covenant written upon men's hearts so that all would know the Law without tyhe need to study.

There is nothing in the "New" Testament that came from the God of the Bible.(Well, except for those little bits that were quotes from the OT. Maybe.)

I wonder why a clearly distinct relationship has the audacious idiocy to try to impose itself on marriage and children. What does it say when you have to severely dumb down a relationship to equate to it?
Nobody is dumbing down anything, except for you (of course).

Two non-related consenting adults entering into a lasting covenant with each other is called marriage.

You don't have to like it if both wear jock straps, or both wear panties.

SSM has no effect on you nor can you come up with a compelling reason to deny people SSM. Your arguments about children are the best you've got, but they are completely irrelevant. What's more, you know it, but you persist anyway.

The latest's attempt to take away private land and water rights of cities and private citizens has begun.

September 7, 2013 Saturday 10:00 am till 12:30 pm.
Taylor Hall, Claremont, California.

I attended the so called "town hall" and aside from all the questions read favoring the NRA but 2/3'd of the room remained seated when asked to if they favored the NRA, it seemed like a sham.

She bussed in supporters just to bump up the numbers of attendee's in chairs.

The Kizh Indians were detained by local police (Claremont) and not allowed to speak. http://gabrielenoindians.org/Site/WELCOME.htm...

She will not allow anyone against or with questions regarding audits and mismanagement of bond money to be asked.

Is she is hiding information and covering up much needed factual information.

The set aside Q&A period was suppose to be 50 minutes, but that shrank to less than 20 minutes of preselected questions answered on cards and five people asking questions via a microphone, who questioned the who process and direction of the Judy Chu support.

You claim no dumbing down, and then turn right around and do it. At the expense of children no less! Then you eliminate one gender!

And with NO consequence? That only happens if something isn't real.

U.S. restaurants in 2012: 1

U.S. restaurants in 1980: 1,118

Year founded: 1957

Sambo's was named after its founders, Sam Battistone and Newell "Bo" Bohnett. At its peak, the chain operated 1,118 restaurants. However, many customers, especially in the Northeast, felt uncomfortable with the name and the company's history.

Sambo's used the principal character from Helen Bannerman's 1899 book "Little Black Sambo," which was criticized for promoting negative racial stereotypes.

The first Sambo's, in Santa Barbara, Calif., remains in business and is now owned by the founder's grandson.
