    I know it’s not my ex-wife since this is on the west coast.

    Not likely virgin olive oil at this point.

    She WAS someone who could help the woman. Funny how her highness never said if she helped her or not. With a person who thinks this way, I bet that if she DID help the woman, the reason could have very well been to avoid being called a racist for not helping…. not simply because she wanted to be helpful.

    You are correct, sir. Our society is the greatest ever conceived, but it requires a moral foundation and accountability to operate the way it should. With escalating greed and corruption, we are indeed destined to implode. I, like you, fear that man will once again destroy himself. I’ll have a plan ready, but I believe I’ll likely be dead and gone before the S really HTF. The 1930′s Depression will be like a walk in the park compared to how things will be if we don’t stop this madness.

    anotheroldjarhead,
    That was my first consideration, but then I remembered all the oil.

    Monk,
    You sound like someone who wants to save our middle class, keep our citizenry from governmental dependency, and preserve our culture and sovereignty. What’s wrong with you? Crazy talk, I tell you…. crazy talk.

    …and the vicious cycle goes on and on. The more people allowed in, the more dependency on the federal government. The more dependency on the federal government, the more tax dollars needed and collected. The more tax dollars spent, the more dependency on the federal government is encouraged. See a trend? More dependency = ever increasing power of the federal government.

    We should have made Iraq a state.

    …or 52 times. Wait a minute… that’s the # of cards in a deck, right?

    Potter,
    Two points… 1) Deciding, or acknowledging, and processing who one is attracted to is a behavior in and of itself (Sexual Orientation). Yes, virgins can do all these things w/o having actual sex.
    2) You said: “Physical attraction: a desire for sexual intimacy.” You also said, “Physical attraction and sexual attraction are pretty much the same thing.” These are both questionable. Physical attraction merely means the degree to which one finds another’s physical attributes visually appealing. I can find someone physically attractive without wanting to have sex with them. If I find them “sexually attractive,” then I have entered sexuality into the equation. IMO, sexual attraction differs in this way and goes beyond physical attraction.

    @HarryPotter,
    “These people are only denying themselves the intimacy of a loving relationship.”

    Intimacy DOES NOT require sexual intercourse. Intimacy is the closeness and connection that develops over time through mutual trust, the sharing of thoughts and feelings, and the pursuit of common interests. Oxford Dictionary defines it as “a close familiarity or friendship.” Read C.S. Lewis’ “Shadowlands” for further insight.

    RipeForParody et. al.,
    Having faith is also a choice. I was watching “Miracle on 34th Street” the other day and near the end of the movie, the mother is talking to her daughter, trying to undo her previous dismissals of Santa Claus being worthy of believing in. During the conversation, she tells her daughter she must have “faith,” and defines it as “believing in something that common sense tells you not to.” Just thought this was a good time to mention this.

    PGehrmann,
    I took the term “embracing” in the comment to be in the context of an observer embracing celibate gays… in other words, “accepting” or “supporting” them. You have described it in the context of celibate gays embracing and how an observer’s belief that homosexuality is a choice may be challenged as a result. These discrepancies make for quite different interpretations.

    The bottom line is that the entire quote by Mr. Hallowell is poorly written and confusing. I don’t have reading comprehension problems, and no, I don’t need your assistance. Thanks anyway. ;)

    “Consider that embracing celibate gays forces some to concede that homosexuality might not be a choice after all; likewise, it also forces some critics to abandon the notion that it’s possible to change one’s sexuality.”

    Oh, Mr. Hallowell… where to begin? How would embracing celibate gays force someone to believe homosexuality may not be a choice or that it’s impossible to change one’s sexuality? What in the Sam Houston do these have to do with one another?

    I was planning to see this movie over the weekend, but I didn’t. I wanted to see what the reviews said first because I don’t want my money to support Hollywood films that send a poor message.

    Great idea, Aklex!

    Key word: “Rookie.” Lessons learned in this game on both sides.

    Well within their “tights?” Anyways… I think the area residents in protest should just sign a petition saying they don’t want the Utica fire dept. to respond to them if they have a fire. In fact, they could have their own secular, atheist firehouse built since it’s clear that Christians hosing water on their burning homes may be offensive as well.
