    Young Earth Creationists are about a foot-dragging ½-step away from Flat Earthers. Sorry, but that’s just the way it is.

    If you look at the trends in religiosity/spirituality on a worldwide basis, you see what is actually quite obvious and expected from an anthropological/sociological standpoint: advanced cultures are become less religious. The cultures/areas where religion still sees growth are mainly third world and primitive cultures. In first world societies, those who are still “religious” are primarily those “born into” the religion of their parents or predominant geographical influence. More are leaving religion than “coming into” it later in life.

    This makes complete and logical sense, as civilizations/cultures finally “outgrow” the ancient and archaic need for the influence of superstitions and the supernatural.

    There has never been any religion….”mainstream” or other…..that didn’t begin as what could be considered a “cult”.

    The only real differences between a “cult” and a “religion”: (1) longevity, and (2) “sales” volume

    Sounds like another Desjarlais. “Hey! I’m absolutely pro-life!…..except when my mistress gets pregnant!”

    Has McAllister blamed the weakening of his “traditional marriage” on same-sex marriage yet?

    Seems like he’s known the aide’s hubby since high school, then they worked together for years. Hey, maybe they’re all swingers but have decided painting this video scandal as just a “fling” would be less-damaging? :>)

    Yet another savant that doesn’t understand the process of judicial review and its vital role under our Constitution. *sigh*

    The best part is where the Reagan-nominated judge completely DESTROYS that fraud Mark Regenerus.

    Actually, 3 states have passed same-sex marriage via the ballot. A fourth (Minnesota) defeated a Constitutional ban via referendum.

    Were these officials in Munich in ’72?

    Hollywood always embellishes/drifts from the book. Most of the movies from Tom Clancy’s novels were really bad about that. They still got the gist of the story, though.

    And what about the ‘Thor’ movies? Thor was as real of a god as any of the other ~3,000 our species has invented, but here we have him in a modern scenario? Where are all the protesting Scandinavians?

    I say deny her the refund and let her sue for it. She has publicly admitted that her actions were for the sole purpose of preventing free and open commerce, so by that measure she was interfering with the (potential) sales transactions (contracts) of the retailer and its legitimate customers. Even if the local authorities find that the store’s display did not meet statutory restrictions, her vigilante punitive actions were not within her rights.

    So the infertile and the elderly are also to be excluded from the ability to marry?

    Many conservatives make me feel the same way about “constitutional” conservative….because they aren’t.

    Placing something on a ballot and getting a majority to approve it doesn’t mean it’s constitutional. If ‘majority rule’ was all that was needed to legislate, why do we even NEED a Constitution?
