Anybody who thinks the Bible should be used to guide and frame legislation is a fucking exclusivist moron anyway.

In any case, you can't even get a group of five Christians to agree on what a Biblical passage means. So whose interpretation should we trust IF there were a viable case for it to have any role to play in lawmaking?

Watch Vertigo, then come back to me.

Bed's done, and fish and chips for dinner.

My room feels completely different.

That may be word for word everyone's response here in the superthread when talking about abortion a month or two ago.

Exactly.

It's illogical and inconsistent to base rights on some fucking bits of genitalia.

I didn't comment on Stewart, as I've only seen one role of his and think it's premature to have an opinion on him. Costner has never made me interested in his story. He's made me laugh on occasion, but he's not a noteworthy actor, in my opinion. Not terrible, just bland.

Whenever a fundie tries to say that the US is a Christian country, I have four words for them: Treaty of Tripoli, bitch.

They were: Strangers On A Train, Rear Window, and North by Northwest.

I'm about to get shot for what I'm going to say, but, Strangers aside, I do NOT get the appeal for Hitchcock.
All Rear Window and North by Northwest seemed to be were thinly veiled sexual inuendo, and super cheesy, convenient plots. Honestly I wasn't even close to impressed.


You may put me before the firing squad now.
I will have to join you in front of the firing squad.

Not great, but they're still a finals chance. Considering for most of the year we've had 1/4 of the salary cap out injured, we're doing alright for ourselves.

Stay injury free next year and we're top 4 material.

The males, anyway.

I'd rather get the economy fixed, honestly. But I'm biased.

Circumstance and environmental issues (not global warming, guys) breed that thought, not actual genetics and shit.

I think abortion is way overblown as an issue. I'm much more worried about other things.
