You're such a despicable, CRIMINAL FRAUD...
when law enforcement intentionally spread lies about you to open illegal investigations...
and/or set you up to have you falsely arrested ..it's called Public corruption.
If FEDS claimed that Obama had killed his mother and put this info out, knowingly lying....
they all would be fired, arrested and serve prison time.
Corrupt FEDS have did much more to me and my kids... and you know it.
Frankly, I know nothing of what Feds supposedly did to you. I know only what you say. But by MAKING UP things regarding myself and (or at least I suspsect) others, you arouse skepticism.
You lied when you said I was a Communist. Yuo lied when you said I was gay. And you lied when you said--repeatedly said without evidence--that I had dictatorial aspirations.
Now if you will amke up things regardingf matters whereof I know the truth, then why would I not be skeptical of things you claim happened to you when I have ONLY your word.
You open your pos.t here with the charge that I am a CRIMINAL FRAUD. Again, you made that up just as you made up the claims that I'm a Communist. And I've still not seen you ev4n TRY to offer EVIDENCE for the previous accusatins you made. Nor have I seen you RETRACT those statements and ADMIT you were either in error or lying.
Now what does that tell me about YOUR character? Your integrity? Maybe you're the fraud, or at least paranoid. In which case the alleged actions against you by the Feds might be either a pack of lies or delusions on your part.

Besides, you're no Fannie Lou Hamer, no Angela Y. Davis. Those women were (like Paul Robeson, MalcolmX, or Dr. King) movers and shakers who were shaking of the racist, capitalist and patriarcal Establishment.
You seem to conventional, too unreflective, too void of social consciousness for the Feds or Cointelpro to be worried about you.
Unless you're cheating on yur taxes, I can't imagine why the Feds would even notice you exist.

The rest of the list is inaccurate, for instance Judaism considers marriage between husband and wife.

Why not allow gays marry really?

I think this might reduce the aids rate...and keep it to two people.

Secondly AS LONG AS YOU HOMOS DON'T SHOVE THIS FILTHY AND DISGUSTING LAW TO CHRISTANS then do what you like!

Cause this is on par with Rome! and nothing angers god more than

SAYING THIS IS HOW GOD DESIGNED IT!

you're nothing but hot air... who would create another third world nation with starving citizens if given the opportunity....

you impart little wisdom to debates....

you're one of many failures in the black community, who arrogantly grandstand...

which is how many of you homosexuals recruit new converts anyway.
and you never have had any credibility... and especially after saying that anybody on these threads endorsed raping children.

maybe it's time that you learned something about topix.

topix is a news thread. it's not a chat room, and it's not a debate forum. it uses these message boards to garner information on public opinion on just about any subject that you can imagine. this information is then sold to other media sources, as well as local, state and federal law enforcement agencies who search through every thread looking for criminals and terrorists. they can also connect each and every person who posts on topix to an isp and to a service provider, from there they are able to track each person to their home address and telephone number. they can find out what you ate for breakfast, and what colour your feces is afterwards.

You just aren't listening to anyone. Allowing same-sex couples to have CIVIL marriages, which are administered by the SECULAR government, is the BEST way to ensure that NO religion gets to impose its internal dogma onto EVERYONE.

The separation of church and state ensures that NO church is the "authority" of what marriage should be. Separation of church and state means that churches DON'T GET A SAY in other people's marriages. Your church can perform and recognize marriages however it sees fit, within its walls. Another church must be allowed to do the same, which may mean doing things differently from yours.

But on a national, NON-RELIGIOUS level, churches must remain silent. Church X cannot force citizen Y to obey its rules. Church Z may WANT to perform and recognize same-sex marriages. Shouldn't they be able to, without the government, or other churches, overriding them?

The next time you want to post something silly like that, don't just post the one sentence and then leave it. You ought to spend a few minutes and provide some paragraphs explaining yourself. Explain why the state should be allowed to impose one rule over all churches. Explain why the dogma of one church should control other churches. Explain why you think this should be a church matter AT ALL.

Well, you listen to your minister, and I'll listen to mine. You don't hear me trying to make you follow my leader, do you?
You can listen to your "minister" all you want as the rest of us listen to our Church and read the word of the Bible.

I suggest you find another "minister" not shop around for one who teels you what you want to hear.
