Duh. I never said anything different. Since you adamantly refuse to understand what I'm saying, I'll move on.



I understood you MM

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

That makes two of us. Cool

I am a Humanist. I believe in a rational philosophy of life, informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by a desire to do good for its own sake and not by an expectation of a reward or fear of punishment in an afterlife.

Three.


 


AND, BTW, lots of gays and lesbians have at one time tried, or will try, hetrosexual marriage.  It takes some people a while to figure out who they really are.

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

It's just that simple.




Well said!

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gloaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.
- J.R.R. Tolkien

Yes, costs do go up just because now you have more people using the benefits. Again, it's not a reason to deny them those benefits.




If it's not a reason to deny benefits then why do you bring it into the discussion?


What purpose does it serve to even mention the fact that costs (might) go up if benefits are now being extended to everyone equally?


I'd also like to point out to you that you mentioned several times "if" gay marriage becomes legal. GAY MARRIAGE IS LEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES. Gays and lesbians can legally marry in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Vermont. 1/10th of the states is not an insignificant number. Gay people can also legally marry in the Disctrict of Columbia.


 


As for DADT, what argument can you provide to support the federal government's blatantly discriminatory policy against gay people? Do you have one? Or are you like most Christians whose thoughts are so clouded by the delusional fantasies and myths of your silly religion that you can't think beyond the prejudice and hate that results from such delusions?

I've been on a journey to nowhere...
and know that's the best place to be...
now...here...




If my faith isn't leading me inward, then my faith is leading me astray.
