    Legs you are exactly correct. Been married more than 30 years. We like porn, have even been to some live clubs. We don’t do video games but we are active in the LARP community so I guess that’s the same thing. We enjoy life and we enjoy each other. All the crap about porn will ruin your life is just propaganda put out by those who are too uptight to deal with it. Anything that takes over one partner’s life to the exclusion of the other is a problem, whether it is watching sports or scrapbooking.

    Seiden don’t listen to these people. My wife and I have been married over 30 years and still enjoy porn together. Even been to some live clubs. We have an active sex life so don’t let them kid you that it kills intimacy because it doesnt. Don’t play video games but we are both active in the LARP community so I suppose that works the same. Kids? He’ll no we’re too busy having fun.

    We need to put our own house in order first. Get rid of the idiotic “Ozzy and Harriet” ideas of the 50 ‘ and join the rest of the first world. Equal pay is only the first step. Complete control of her sexual freedom has to happen, not be held to ridiculously out of date moral standards. Forget this subjection to the man crap and accept her as a full and equal partner. After all that is done we can look at other countries.

    Well I agree with you but I think you’ll have a hard time getting the anti gay, anti choice, anti sin sanctimonious people around here to leave the rest of us alone.

    Gotz- the difference is in what you do with the belief. If you say what you believe and move on, that’s fine, who cares. But if you take that belief and then use it to restrict another’s freedom by law and ordinance, then it’s a problem.

    Disabled- society is not my problem. Individual freedom is more important than the needs or wants of society, religion, or government. If you are not personally harming another person physically or financially, nobody should have any right to restrict you behavior.

    Are those officer’s instructions going to be polite and nonconfrontational? Cops have an attitude and too many people support that attitude. Cops are supposed to be peace officers and work for the people. They have become law enforcement officers that work as a collection agency for the government. Instead of the old instruction “be safe out there”, they now operate under the instruction ‘it is your duty to come back, no matter what”. Yes, its a dangerous job but they knew that when they took the oath and accepted the risks. The shaved head, BDU wearing cops have lost the respect they used to have by their own actions, demanding respect where none is earned, and over reaching their authority. We need more Andy Griffiths and a whole lot less SWAT wannabes.

    Doesn’t matter if it’s genetic or a choice. Whatever works for the people involved. Straight, gay, bi, poly, swinger, BDSM- it’s all good. Consenting adults have the right to play in whichever sexual ball park they prefer, and religion and the government have no right to say squat about it.

    Privilege of Clergy, along with tax breaks for religion, are ideas that should have died with the middle ages.

    4-Given. No, it’s not a crusade against Christians. In the big picture, it’s about people who think they have the right to control others. The left does it because they think they are helping people with their rules about what people should eat, how they shouldn’t smoke, and how we should use politically correct language so as not to offend. The right, especially the Christian right, does it to control the morality of the people and to engineer society to what they think is a righteous and sober life. Neither one has the right to control or engineer society. The only laws we should have are those regarding crimes against property or person. We don’t need laws enforcing food choices or morality choices.

    My point is that the Christians have been passing these laws for so long, and making their religious dogma a part of society, that when the world changes, now that we have become a post-Christian society, they can’t handle that they are no longer special. They cast this as a war against them, carried on by the forces of marxism, or whatever other -ism they are currently against. The truth is that this should be a war against all controlling groups, waged by the people who prefer real freedom.

    I’m not an atheist I’m a wiccan, so that part of you comment doesn’t work. But there are lots of people like me, non Christians, atheists, even moderate Christians, who are done with rules and laws built on your dogma and want a secular government where every religion is free and exactly equal no matter who they offend.

  • [-4] December 11, 2014 at 1:23pm

    This is about making Christians understand that they are not better than everyone else and have to obey the rules. For so long in this country, the Christians have had it all their own way, making the rules and engineering society. Now, when the atheists and non Christians say that doesn’t fly anymore, the Christians whine that they are being persecuted.

    Most of my friends and I have been boycotting Black Friday and now Black Thursday for years. Nothing to do with the politics, just a desire to break the concept of spending large amounts of money on junk presents. We don’t need this idea that we need to spend lots of money to have a good holiday, and we don’t care if corporations don’t make huge profits.

    So you admit that you are against the First Amendment. That Amendment guarantees freedom of religion to Wiccans, or, as they are also known, witches. Nice to know you are anti Constitution.

    Conservative Christians do just as much to take freedom away from the people. They are the ones out there pushing laws and ordinances to outlaw behaviour that they consider sinful or bad for society. Why should they be the ones to choose? Freedom includes the right to be sinful, prideful, gluttonous, decadent or, libertine. Ah, but those go against your dogma, so apparently there is not as much freedom in Christ as you wish to believe.

    I don’t have a major problem with the general idea, but I wish they had picked another church. My reading of various articles over the years indicates that charities and food banks that are supported by the rightwing and evangelical churches generally want to proselytise along with their charity. I’d be happier with a food bank supported by a less fundamental church, like the Episcopalians or the Congregationalists that aren’t going insert a few tracts into the food basket.

    Yes. It just wasn’t so blatant back then. Now the corporations and unions openly hold legislators hostage. They don’t care who knows anymore.

    The whole concept of Schoolhouse Rock’s “How a bill gets passed” was trashed long ago. It died when we allowed lobbyists and money to take over government. Dems and Reps now do the bidding of their corporate masters. The people no longer are involved.

    Suppose it depends where you are. Street preachers in NYC and Boston are pretty in your face
    We get a lot of those missionary types at pagan festivals and outside pagan shops. Key West has a few of them, especially at Fantasy Fest.

    If you’d shut up and go away when somebody says they don’t want to hear it, things might be better but you dont. You keep pushing. I don’t care if you think my lifestyle or any body else’s is filled with sin. I don’t believe in sin so leave me and those like me alone. We are not going to accept your Christian society so live your life and let us live ours.

    Yeah, but now we’ll hear all the usual crap “i’ll never listen to them again” I’ll burn their CDs” and on and on.. Personally, country music sounds like the yowling of cats in heat. I’ll take Tull or Rick Wakeman any day. the music counts, not the people playing it.
