When you start having a thought, dddkkka, we'll also start keeping score. For now, you're still achieving the zen perfection of nothingness. Such is the life of a Zen Ball Lizard.

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

The Zen Ball Lizard thinks it's blowin out his ass.

Linda Greenhouse (independent reporter who focuses on Supreme Court and its rulings) says:
...a majority of the public favors the outcome of both the health care and the marriage decisions, a CNN poll found in midweek. The majority comprised both Democrats and, significantly, independents, 63 percent of whom approved both rulings. By smaller margins, Republicans disapproved of both. For Republican politicians handcuffed to their base, which is to say all of them, there is a danger sign, surely, in their increasing distance from independent voters who will control the outcome of the next election. So too is there danger in a recent Gallup poll indicating that for the first time in seven years, more Americans identify themselves as “pro-choice” than “pro-life.”

kdc - you can't have any agreement when the other side has no thought. It's zen.

But, the hypocrisy of Paul's own paper and its blog rules turn his argument completely on its head. Maybe his mother liked the word and taught him to accept its everyday usage. Maybe not. It still is unusual that he is harping on the n-word so much lately. It's like he's had a bet with someone on how many times he can get away with putting that word in a family newspaper.

Of course, the fact that conservatives were the main ones to become agitated about Obama this is nothing new. They remain in a rather constant state of jitteriness (note dddkkka's typical reaction, et al) and get positively Pavlovian any time they are exposed to his name.

I have no problem with a universal interpretation of the negative effects of religious bigotry nor hold that any religion is exempt from said interpretation. If and when a muslim or hindu or who do whatever gets on here and spouts religious bigotry, then they will likewise be told that sharia law or "religious liberty" (or whatever name it goes by from ANY religion) that enjoins us to discriminate against others for the flimsiest and often twisted reasons shall be considered wicked, evil, and a bane to mankind.

"I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by; I let them become defiled through their gifts—the sacrifice of every firstborn—that I might fill them with horror so they would know that I am the LORD." Ezekiel 20:25-26

I love apple pie, the color blue, and good books. Sick9 loves incest and beastiality (wonder where his dog licks him?).
--
One of the stock fallacious arguments against same sex-marriage is the slippery slope argument in which it is contended that allowing same sex-marriage will lead to allowing incestuous marriage. The mistake being made is, of course, that the link between the two is not actually made. Since the slippery slope fallacy is a fallacy, this is obviously a bad argument.
My reply to this argument is that if different-sex marriage does not require us to accept incestuous marriage, then neither does accepting same-sex marriage. But, if accepting same-sex marriage entails that we have to accept incestuous marriage, the same would also apply to different-sex marriage.
--
Now, in sickie's case, there is a qualifier: since he includes a beast in the argument, he is engaging in a slobbery, slippery slope argument. Sloppy, indeed.

Laverne misstates the problem. Using her logic, you could defend murderers or thieves as just "having a difference of opinion."
If someone wants a specifically defined group of people to have less rights than others, to be treated less fairly, to have less liberties, and/or to face discrimination because they belong to these groups, then they are against these groups. If they label them as abominations and wicked, then those are terms of hatred, no matter how you try to fancy them up. If they harbor resentment for another race, then they are basing their feelings on hate.
But, the main source of this dislike is not respecting the notion that others have liberties and rights equal to yours. To blithely label it as only a "difference of opinion" is a whitewash.
So, while I see Laverne's words, in the background I hear the words of Richard Nixon: "I am not a crook."

dumken just spouts the lies and myths about immigration. if he did a leetle homework, maybe he'd learn how far off the mark he actually is. Google - "Myths and facts about immigration to the United States" and give dummykin a tacqueria special to snack on.

GOP senators vow to protect gay-marriage objectors' rights July 3, 2015 at 10:35 p.m.

A humanist or an atheist can't tell you to go to hell or threaten you with it but a christian can and sure will. It's supposed to show how much you are loved. And what is Hell? It's a concentration camp set up in the afterlife that is so horrible that it makes the Nazi Holocaust look like a walk through Disneyland.
And if you question the rationale for such an inhuman and inhumane place, then you get called a "fool."

We report: "Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, "Strike me!"  But the man refused to strike the prophet.  Then the prophet told him, "Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me."  And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him.    1 Kings 20:35-36
--
You decide: A guy refuses to hit a holy man. God sends a lion to kill him for not obeying the prophet. Is this a just decision?

One of his students asked Buddha, “Are you the messiah?”
“No”, answered Buddha.
“Then are you a healer?”
“No”, Buddha replied.
“Then are you a teacher?” the student persisted.
“No, I am not a teacher.”
“Then what are you?” asked the student, exasperated.
“I am awake”, Buddha replied
