    Way to endorse 1st cousin marriages. Tolerating everything means standing for nothing…

    Where did Grover_Standpipe go wrong?
    Our rights come from God (right, GOD and/or nature) but our government at least recognizes marriage to the spouse of our choice as a right (wrong, same sex marriage isn’t legal in every state and there are several other stipulations), while the churches (implies they act uniformly) that are supposed to be God’s voice on Earth (debatable) treat it as a privilege (wrong, they treat it as sacred. not to be done on a whim. like a decision to get married should be treated) subject to their approval (a choice to live with someone forever can be made outside to the church, and is still a natural right). The government has been formalizing marriages for those of us who do not choose to seek such approval from any church since a hundred years before we were born (for the betterment of society, not on behalf of our right to marriage), and the interest of preserving the rights of all the people is best served by their continuing to do so, even if it costs 63 bucks. I, for one, do not get married so frequently that this would represent a major financial hardship (the point was rights don’t cost money. especially if they provide money to the government. i’m sure they’d be negated by the tax breaks, or the only reason to seek out the a government endorsed marriage in the first place).

    • 20 states, including Alabama, allow 1st cousin marriages outright.

    • Alabama marriage license costs are $43.35+ for marriage license only and $63+ for license, ceremony and a certified copy. If after 30 days the marriage has not taken place, another license must be applied for.

    Do these really seem like the type of people we want our natural rights entrusted to?

    Our rights don’t come from the government, RhesusGenius. Same sex couples are reliant upon on a government that rejected same sex marriage for 200+ years as their savior. What happens if they decide to reverse the decision again? Also, the act of marriage happens before GOD in a church, it can’t be accomplished by signing a government document…

    Couldn’t agree more. The federal government shouldn’t own any land inside of a state’s boundaries…

    Saudi royalty need to keep the oil flowing in order to remain in power (which has been tenuous). That’s why the king’s death is of importance. In the meantime, American’s prosper from low oil prices and the oversaturated oil market severely hurts the Russian economy on our behalf (same desired effect as economic sanctions)…

    Fine db321. Instead of Romney, Bush or Huckabee, it’ll be Chris Christie. Are you happy now? :)

    Didn’t expect this sort of response from a resident leftist. Completely ignore the issue at hand and resort to a personal attack. Is this a new leftist tactic capable of driving every discussion into the mud, or just a sign of personal integrity (or lack thereof)…

    My point is look how quick you two idiots turned on me for making a valid observation. Is KMSP going to pull up some insignificant non violent criminal history on me now, so everyone can conclude I’m evil, and allow mob rule take it’s course? I did own slaves, you know…

    I’m not defending Puro’s actions and harassment is clearly wrong, but pointing out [Puro has a history of DWI (1989 and 2007)] is a lame attempt to connect him to a criminal history.

    Protocol would suggest that the leader of the United States doesn’t desert a long time ally (Israel), whom the majority of the country and their representatives support without preconditions. Obama would snap if the Republican leaders started to withhold any respect or interest in his proposals (in face to face meetings), and he came to the realization he’s powerless in his last 2 years in office. Perhaps then he would make the mistake that would turn the mainstream media against him, and bring down the entire administration. Boehner and McConnell should start reaching out to our long time allies, host their diplomats outside of the White House, and ensure them that Obama’s reign of “incompetence” (fundamental transformation) is over. We can call it, legislative action…

    All 9% were at the Blaze yesterday to comment on a different abortion story. Wonder if they’ll come forward today and tell us again how their views are so widely accepted across America, and we’re the extremists…

    The problem with creationists and evolutionists open to the idea of creationism is the idea that a being (GOD) that could create the universe, the earth and everything on it, did so, and once he was finished just left it be for billions of years. Scientists and people who interpret Genesis literally, handicap his capabilities once life begins. They’re closed off to the idea that everything wasn’t perfectly set from the beginning, that he might constantly be tinkering with his creations, and that he wouldn’t be capable of using what he already created for his own use. Case in point, when the History channel attempts to disprove biblical stories, because they can prove how there’s an extremely remote chance they could have happened through nature. That in order to prove GOD’s hand in parting the Red Sea, we’d have to discover some super natural source of energy, because he wouldn’t have just used the force of the wind. It’s pretty ridiculous and close minded on both sides…

    WhoIsJohnGlt – How does pointing out how dumb this discussion is, in regards to the validation of all abortions on one circumstance, correlate to who’s more of a rape victim in any scenario? I suspect, as is always the case with leftists, you know full well what my intent was, but decided to dismiss the numbers and jump on one thing, no matter how irrational, and take the sure fire accusatorial approach, rather than engage in a discussion based on the reality of the situation…

    Libertarian_Communist – Where to begin. That comment made no sense. A woman has an unlimited number of options for ensuring she doesn’t become pregnant (freedom). The government has also mandated they’re free through the ACA. Don’t hear any cries of government extortion for the businesses expected to pay for it. A newly pregnant woman would have 19 weeks to make a choice about abortion (freedom). Around that time the baby already has a heartbeat (abandoned by science). Is Roe vs. Wade also government extortion? Might want to look up what ‘extortion’ and ‘freedom” mean for any further comments…

    spy4hyre – Spy makes a valid point if it is applied in regards to child support. If a man is expected to be equally responsible for the care of a child, then why are they not granted input into whether or not the woman has an abortion? Rights are suppose to end when they trample the rights of others…
