Sad isn't it?

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

It's pretty creepy when christians, bahais, mormons, etc want to crawl in bed with strangers, why... I would call it downright "perverted".


Such religions have gross teachings.  The best part is when they treat gays differently, (like not allowing them to marry), and then insist they don't discriminate!  


It's amazing how small the world of some people is.



It's quite simple:  MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

It is creepy, it is creepy how so many of the Abrahamics spend so much time these people spend thinking about other peoples private sexual behaviour. Yes it down right perverted. Disgusting.

I don't believe that IS Ken's position, but he can defend himself.


I just wanted to comment on the absurdity of "'approving' or 'disapproving' of another  human being's sexuality in the first place. It's like 'approving' or 'disapproving' of left-handedness, or "questioning" eye-colour.

Prop 8 got shot down in court. Nobody should be surprised. 





And yet so many, MANY "Christians" seem not only to be "surprised", they're also upset, outraged, miffed, 'concerned' (etc.) - so much so that they lead drives to change entire Constitutions to bend them toward what THEY "agree with"/"approve of"/"question".


As Ann Landers used to say, y'all should "Mind your own beezwax."

BTW, it seems no one here has articulated a rational reason to deprive same-sex couples and their children of the rights and responsibilities that come with civil marriage.  Right?  I didn't just happen to miss that post, did I?





No, mindis1, you didn't miss it - because it doesn't EXIST. The pro-Prop 8 legal faction couldn't come up with even ONE "rational reason" in any of the hearings, so I don't think you should hold your breath waiting for it here on this board either.

Thanks for clearing that up. My dyslexia caused me to mis-read mouse's comment. My apologies.
