So has deep changed his web persona from 'random disembodied viewpoint generator' to 'empathetic ear of equal opinion'?

No, his username should still be "Self-Appointed Devil's Advocate."

Sees like it. I truly do not see what the point is in making those responses. If someone could enlighten me, that'd be great.

Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one. But that doesn't mean they're all right. Sometimes you should keep them to yourself if you know that it'll disrespect a lot of people unrightfully.

I've seen that a few times... was it a mockup that was somehow leaked? They didn't actually go to print with that did they?

I think it's real. They have to compete with the breastfeeding four year old.

Not that anyone cares, but did anyone see Bristol Palin's criticism of Obama's gay marriage stance? I think I'll finally join Facebook, her posts inspire me to.

Huffington Post

Bristol Palin is not satisfied with President Obama's explanation of how he evolved to support gay marriage--by talking with his family and friends.

"You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples," Obama said in the ABC interview in which he made his announcement. "There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently."

Bristol writes in a Facebook post that fathers should shape their kids' views, not the other way around:

"While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview."

Bristol has a son with her ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston, but the two were never married and Bristol says that Levi is not part of the child's life.

Bristol also accuses liberals of being critical of Christian women who bow to their husbands--and says the same scrutiny should apply to Obama being influenced by his family. She brings up a debate question that Michele Bachmann was asked about submitting to her husband but fails to mention that Bachmann started the controversy in 2006 when she said, "The Lord says: Be submissive, wives. You are to be submissive to your husbands." Bristol writes:

" Let’s pause for just one second. When Christian women run for high office, people inevitably bring up the question of submission. Once, Michele Bachmann, for example, was asked during a debate, “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”

People automatically assume that a Christian female President isn’t capable of making decisions without her spouse’s stamp of approval. (I should add female Republican candidates –liberal women don’t get the same kind of questions.)

So are all those reporters who feared excessive family intervention in the White House all up in arms over the President’s announcement yesterday? Um. Not quite."

Unless she had that kid the same way Mary did in the bible, Bristol is just as much a sinner as a homosexual according to her religious belief.

Aside from that, I'm not sure anyone cares what Bristol thinks.

Uhm, what was that saying again? Do as I say, not as I do?

She also said something about kids who are getting their views on gay marriages from watching too many episodes of Glee. Yes, I'm sure that's why kids think gay people deserve equality.

Someone obviously cared enough to ask her. I'm not sure WHY, but apparently someone cares.

Her bullshit has been duly noted.

My thoughts exactly. But not at all surprising-seems to be the mantra of her family in general .

You are confusing attraction (not a choice) with acting on said attraction (a choice).

You cannot control whom you find yourself attracted to. You can only control whether or not to act on your feelings for that person. And that applies to gay, straight, and bisexual people.

Again, though, whether or not one's sexual orientation is a choice should be irrelevant. Either way it's still nobody else's business to tell them they can't be with someone they love, especially if they don't have any logical reasons as to why.

From that thing about Romney a couple pages back:

Quote:
bringing much of the audience to its feet in cheers by declaring: "Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman."
Sigh.

See, if you read that and don't see that as cruel or disrespectful, I don't know what to tell you anymore. Cheering at the idea of stopping gay couples from being able to be together is just heartless. Sorry, Cori's got the right idea here-there's no justification for this line of thinking. None. Get over yourselves and your little prejudices, think for yourselves instead of letting the Bible do it all for you, and enter the 21st century already. This is beyond ridiculous.

Last night on one of our political talk shows, a member of the crowd asked the right-wing MP Joe Hockey why he is against same-sex marriage, and why he thinks he can be a parent but MP Penny Wong, who is in a lesbian relationship, cannot. Her reply was stunning.
