it is.

you've been enlightened.

what kind of idiot would think that a single person who wants to have sex with underage prostitutes in Thailand speaks for millions of people?

you realize this is like thinking that Adolf Hitler speaks for all Germans.

Rush Limbaugh is a hateful person and a sorry excuse for a human being. Thankfully he seems to believe in God and I hope for his sake that one does exist so that Rush's judgment day may go a little differently than he presently thinks.

Shouldn't this get people angry? Isn't it a double standard? Why are gays cut this kind of slack? That second article I posted is from a homosexual. This is his point of view. It's infuriating!
The problem is you're taking the actions of an extreme minority in a group and ascribing it to the majority. It's a false equivocation to declare that homosexuality has no morality because of the actions of a minority, and you should know that. If you honestly believe that most homosexuals condone this kind of behavior, then the only conclusion I can come to is that you're a woefully misinformed bigot. I suggest you tread extremely carefully on this topic (or drop it altogether).

I agree it's a difficult topic but I've moved it so the people who want to avoid it can. The baldwin article I posted looked at intergenerational relationships as not a minority opinion of homosexuals and that it's a part of the culture. If that's a misconception I'm okay with people posting evidence otherwise. If I'm "ignorant" or "bigoted" remember that I'm allowing a full discussion with other points of view. It's hard to talk about a topic that is heated. That's why I was hoping to find some discussion with other points of view without all the F words and "who the hell are you" comments. I'll certainly drop it if the discussion can't be civil.

Thanks Diemen for your even handed approach as administrator.

I have to post this. This is so amazingly brilliant and hilarious. They all slipped back into those characters perfectly. Who knew that Andy Griffith is an Obama supporter?

When you are essentially accusing members of our own forum of being sympathetic to child molestors, then I don't think it should come as a surprise that people take offense to that, and frankly that kind of accusation doesn't even deserve discussion. Rational discussion rarely persuades bigotted opinions.

Continued pursuit of this line of discussion will not be tolerated.

some interesting theories.

the Morman Church has apparently bankrolled a huge amount of the "Yes on 8" advertising and organization. some are speculating that this is a way of proving their legitimacy (the church itself, not individual Mormons) as "real" Christians to the larger white protestant evangelicals.

why, you might ask?

What, the Mormons finally decided to stop hating on blacks so they need a new scapegoat?

to be fair, we should probably say "The Mormon Church."

but it seems like they want to prove their status as True Christians the old fashion way -- through discrimination!
