    @buccoman….
    Conservatives on the wrong side history, really….please don’t sell your revisionist history here. During the civil rights movement, it was people like Al Gore Sr. (a Democrat, not a conservative) and Robert Byrd(former KKK and Democrat) who stood in the way civil rights legislation. During the Civil War and shortly thereafter, it was the Democrats who stood for slavery (just so you know, they were not called conservatives). The last time I checked, Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas were Republicans. It is the Democrats who have the long history of being on the wrong side….Wilson, FDR, Sanger…. all racists. Please go read history before you comment. I hate having a Battle of Wits with unarmed people.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I believe the phrase “gay marriage” makes as much sense as “jumbo shrimp”….
    This being said, I think we are missing the real problem that this ruling and the Obamacare ruling from the day before present. WE ARE NO LONGER A NATION OF LAWS.
    Statutory Law died when Roberts rewrote the entries in the Merriam-Webster dictionary for the words in the phrase “established by the state” to make it fit his delusions of a competent thought. When the words of a law no longer mean what they say but whatever some ideologue dressed in black says, then how do we know what the meaning of any statue is?
    Common Law died with this decision because we no longer are bound be the testimony of history about what is and is not. Contrary to the arguments that many of the left have been giving, marriage has always been understood in civilization as being between man and wife. Just because you call a weed a flower doesn’t make it so.
    So yes, I am harmed by this decision because I no longer live in a nation of laws. To argue otherwise is to argue that Bill Clinton was impeached for inserting a cigar into the incorrect body opening.

    In reply to the contribution Yes, Gay Marriage Hurts Me Personally

    Here we have Exhibit Z as to why I left the Republican Party (A = McCain, B = Romney, C = Boehner, D= McConnell, E = Haley Barber, F = Karl Rove, G = Hucakbee and so forth and so on…)

    And now for our next story from Captain Obvious….Pope Francis makes the startling confession “I am a Roman Catholic”. Film at 5.

    (cont from above…)
    I HAVE also read the Koran and Hadith. They do contain commands to kill those who insult Mohammad, reject converting to Islam, and any number of other offenses. They do not contain a “Get Out of Beheading Free” card. Thus, I am forced to conclude that the onager cleric is accurately reflecting his system of theology (or as I prefer to call it, insanity).
    I will concede the point that any one individual may have a flawed interpretation of their sacred texts. However, when one compares the bodies of theological writings of Christianity and Islam theologians throughout history, it is fair to compare the two systems of belief. Christianity does not teach violence against those who do not hold Christian beliefs. Islam does teach violence against those who do not hold Islamic beliefs. Thus, my original point still stands. I don’t want any nut job who is required by his theology to kill all who disagree with his god to be in charge of the local public toilet, let alone deciding who should live and who should die.

    Zappa,
    I am going to set aside my own advice about never having a battle of wits with an unarmed individual for a second here and respond. You say that you were raised Catholic (I’m assuming Roman Catholic), then surely you were taught what the Church has taught since the time of the apostles. While I am Lutheran, I still have respect for much of the teachings of the Church Fathers. I would challenge you to find a single quote where the Apostles, Church Fathers, Luther, Calvin (OK, leaving Geneva out of the conversation for a second), or the host of other Christian theologians have said that it is OK to kill someone because they will not repent. Please note that I am leaving out the BBQs of the Inquisition and the Salem Witch Trials, they don’t exactly fit into the teachings of Scripture. I can say that I HAVE read Holy Scripture and do have a pretty good grasp of what it says. Nowhere in Scripture is there a command for a Christian to kill a heathen because the draw a picture of Christ, put a cross in urine, etc….. (and before you throw Leviticus at me, please, please tell me that one of the nuns taught you the difference between the ceremonial law and moral law in the Old Testament). I can say with 100% certainty that the pastor you quote from AZ doesn’t get it when discussing the basics of the Christian teachings of sin, repentance, and justification….(cont.)

    Zappa,
    I am amazed we have to have this conversation again, but here we go. The difference is simple. The “Christian” clerics you quote have a flawed understanding of their sacred text and theology which is correctly condemned by the majority of the Christian community. The Muslim cleric we are discussing here does have a correct understanding of his sacred text and theology. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want any nut job who is correctly quoting his god about killing those who disagree with the god in charge of the local public toilet, let alone deciding who should live and who should die.

    I would like to thank to the Teleprompter of the United States, the Pickled Speaker of the House, the Chief Mental Midget of the Supreme Court and all of their helpful minions for establishing the precedent that Constitution is not the “Law of the Land” but rather is instead just a set of “Helpful Suggestions.” They have paved the way to invite them all to explore other employment opportunities by means of a peaceful revolution and set aside the Constitution’s age requirements so that we can place this child in charge. He obviously know more about the job at hand and has more common sense than anybody holding political office in Washington DC.

    Can I interest you in a slightly used bridge in Brooklyn or some nice ocean-front property in Nebraska? The militant LBGTQRSTUVQXYZ community and their cheerleaders in the DemoKrat party are not concerned about little things like legal protections for the free exercise of religion by pastors. They will find legal and/or illegal arguments to use against pastor who stand on their religious freedom rights until they are either forced from the public sphere of debate or fold to the iron will of “tolerance” and accept this garbage being forced down their throats. And before you reject that argument, remember there is sill a large part of the nation which considers abortion to be murder and objects to using tax dollars to fund it, a large part of the nation which thinks perjury should be punished by something other than a presidential retirement plan, and a large part of the country who thinks that freedom of association for a business owner means that he can choose whether or not to provide services to a given individual.

    I have to respectfully disagree. Chamberlain realized his mistake when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. The current mental midget wasting oxygen in the Oval Office is too much of a self-centered ideologue to ever admit his is wrong.

    Mike,
    Joseph Smith couldn’t keep the story straight…I would argue with you but I would rather hear how you would answer Donnal and Conall…….
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTwpOfr3NDQ
    If you don’t want to discuss with Donnal and Conall, how do you respond to the writer of Hebrews when he said “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.” (Hebrews 1:1-2, ESV)?

    I suppose domestic violations of election law (i.e. IRS delays and witch hunts in conservative group 501c3 applications, encouraging Mississippi voters to break the law by voting a Demokat and Repukican election in the same year, dead people voting, being mayor of Tulsa and voting in Oklahoma AND Florida, etc.) are not enough for you? You now need to violate both US and Israeli law to support your delusions…ur, sorry…political points of view?

    I hope this man’s daughter is doing well.

    Dad’s form appears a little off….probably the stress…..

    Can we all get together to get this man a 12ga. home defense tool of his choice, a used cargo container, and about 30 minutes alone with the “alleged” low-life, worthless waste of air?

    Republican = Whig
    Bohner = old Cherokee word for “orange skinned lying onager who cries too much when drunk”.

    I have suggestion for what we can do….start calling our representatives and say no more money and no more votes until Bridenstine is Speaker.

    You forgot to add “while standing on the shore of the Potomac River”.

    Zorro,
    Voting for a RINO vs. a communist (aka Democrat) is like asking if would prefer death by hanging or death by firing squad. I did vote for Romney because I thought that was the only way to prevent this madness with Obozo, but I will never vote for a RINO again. The Republican Party is the Whig Party of the 21st century. It is time to vote with our feet.

  • [4] February 24, 2015 at 6:13pm

    Three simple facts to remember here…..
    1. Republican = Whig
    2. Boehner = old Cherokee word for “orange skinned lying sack of s$%& who cries too much”
    3. McConnell = old Cherokee word for “pale face lying sack of s$*% who speaks with forked tongue”

    We had a saying in college that if we flunked out of engineering, the College of Business would always take us. We never asked where the business dropouts went, but I now think that they got political science degrees and went to work for the State Department…..give ISIS a job…..ugh…..

    Thank God I wasn’t eating when I read this….it really should come with a parental warning…..
