    Actually, many gays want to believe they were born that way. If they’re born that way then no one can change them. If they became gay then it’s possible to become straight.

    Technically, there is no right to have one’s marriage recognized by the government. Instead, the government, understanding the positive role marriage plays in society, granted recognition to marriages in order to encourage such unions.

    Okay. I did the research. Here’s the ethnic breakdown of the Iranian population.
    Persians: 51-65%
    Azeris: 16-24%
    Kurds: 7-10%
    Lurs: 6%

    The list goes on. Iran is composed of a mixture of demographics, many of whom don’t even speak the same language. Trust me, my argument is based in fact. Though to be perfectly honest, this idea didn’t originate with me. Someone who knows much more about the middle east explained this to me.

    In any case, you cannot deny that Iran is a dictatorship. All dictatorships eventually crumble. That’s a historical fact. When that time comes, do you really believe that the Kurds and Azeris are going join with the Persians to build a new country?

    “Please explain what internal frictions are likely to affect their stability as a nation-state?”

    For the same reasons Iraq is currently breaking apart. Iran is a country with multiple ethnic and religious minorities who are not well treated by the Persian Shiite majority. The country is ruled by a dictatorship on top if it. Such factors point to one inevitable conclusion: the current regime cannot last. It may hold on for another 10, 20, or 30 years, but a century from now I will guarantee that Iran as we currently know it will no longer exist.

    North Korea isn’t run by religious extremists nor do terrorists operate within or near its borders. Could a collapse of North Korea be of concern do to their possession of nukes? Yes. But the risk is much lower. The closest countries to North Korea are Russia, which has nukes anyways, Japan and South Korea, both of which are peaceful and stable, and China, which is relatively stable and not aggressive.

    In contrast, Iran literally has ISIS brushing up against their border.

    One more thing, name one war that Israel has ever lost.

    Let me make this simpler. Imagine Iran gets nukes in 2 years but never uses them. Then, 5 years from now Iran collapses. Islamic radicals thrive in the power vacuum and before you now it there’s a terrorist group with nukes.

    My point is that attacking non-Christians for not holding Christian beliefs is bigoted.

    Israel received no help from the US in 1948 nor in 1967. We wouldn’t sell them military goods at all. In 1973, Israel had already stopped the Arab advance before the American resupply could be sent to the front. Since then, they’ve fought two wars in Lebanon and many more in Gaza, all unaided. Your “facts” couldn’t be more wrong if Goebbels himself had authored them.

    5 billion dollars makes you the boss? Israelis pay far more than that in taxes alone. Your claim is like a shareholder holding only 7% of a company’s shares thinking he can singlehandedly determine company p policy.

  • [3] July 5, 2015 at 12:09pm

    No one wants Israel to attack Iran. We’re simply more afraid of a nuclear Iran. Iran isn’t even internally stable. Even if Iran never uses nukes, there is a high likelihood that the country will break apart in the future. What happens to all those nukes then?

    Wow. So Jews reject jesus as the Messiah? Who new?

    Newsflash, if Jews accepted Jesus as the Messiah, then they wouldn’t be Jews, they’d be Christians. In other words, your justification for hating Jews is that they aren’t Christian.

  • July 5, 2015 at 6:39am

    Yes outlaw. That’s why they’re burning a Jewish religious text. Because they aren’t attacking all Jews as a religious group.

    Wait, what?

  • [4] July 1, 2015 at 5:33pm

    You think this is the end? Just you wait. Soon there’ll be people looking to get incestuous marriages recognized. Can’t wait to hear some of the gay marriage supporters try to argue against that.

    Says the one who dehumanizes all of humanity with his claims the people can’t control their own behavior. You treat humanity as being less than animals in the sense that every action is genetically compelled. If one cannot make choices, can they be said to be truly alive?

    Fun to watch the Jews crush them, but infuriating to watch the media accuse Israel of murdering civilians when there’s likely to be more killed by Hamas and ISIS EACH.

    Name one terrorist organization sponsored by Israel.

  • [4] June 30, 2015 at 12:03pm

    By the way, nice display of ignorance. “Yahu” is a common ending to hebrew names. Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hezekiah, Elijah, each of these biblical characters had names which in the original hebrew ended in Yahu. What does Yahu mean? It means God.

  • [1] June 30, 2015 at 11:55am

    And what of Iran’s support of terrorist attacks against Israel? That qualifies as an act of war. In fact, Iran has sponsored attacks against several nations, including America. Israel is more than justifies to attack Iran.

  • [6] June 30, 2015 at 11:31am

    Under what treaty is Israel obligated to give up its nukes? None. Iran meanwhile has both violated treaty agreements and been an active sponsor of terrorism, including attacks on Americans.

    Besides, if you were truly as metal as you claim, why did you omit Pakistan?
