Keep sniffing around Pack. I'm sure you'll discover the truth that fits you best. Besides, all the others smacked your arguments well enough that I got left dealing with the overall absurdity of your statements; thus, I took a similar route in responding to you.
Being the tooter you are, I'm sure the others in your pack enjoy your presence immensely.

Dang.....now that I know "it's clear" then I just have to believe it's so. It just needed to be explained "clearly" to me. SO many ethnocentrists have made that point abundantly "clear" to me.
Sigh........the issue is not about religion and beliefs; the issue is about rights and treatment of your fellow humans.
It's a stretch, but let me compare this argument to dog behavior. When dogs sniff anuses, it's about religion to them. That's 'cause it's about who the other dog is. When dogs bark or bare teeth or nip at each other, that's about rights and how they want to be treated.
Which end of the argument you take tells me which end of the dog you're most interested in.

Dana is basically saying that it's okay to deny rights to anyone if you say there's a religious reason for doing so.
I don't think that's an honest way to treat everyone equally. That's the real issue: how people are treated. It's not about what you or I believe regarding religious matters. And that's truly why we need to separate church and state. We are not a theocracy nor should anyone try to make us one.
The real question Dana avoids is this: do gay humans deserve to the same rights as straight humans? Does Dana think it's OK to treat them less fairly and equally than others? Does Dana not respect gays as human beings and respect their rights?
Or is Dana too busy picking up stones for his next diatribe? So ready to judge others from his purported moral high ground.
Save this country from the do-gooders like Dana and his ilk.

So how does the word creator become God with a capital G. The document just says creator.

Cuomo is right because the ones who actually wrote and give the rights are men.

If you discriminate because you of your religion, then you have gone over to the dark side. The lessons of Nazi Germany and fascism have had no effect upon you. Hester is simply following in the footsteps of Hitler and other tyrants. Fighting against discrimination is NOT bullying or political correctness. It's standing up for the US Constitution and equal rights.

Hey Dame Ken, I remember when religious bigots didn't use to attack us so much but because the yahoos have taken over the uber idjits of America Republican wing, it seems to be the modus operandi of their prejudiced little noggins.
23cal was right. Your stance is irony and foolishness par excellence. And I believe that the day you quit persecuting folks with your religion cannot come soon enough. You are a perversion of American values and religious values.

Will take your advice PM and leave Cliff alone. Am going to treat such as SPAM and just ignore/delete it from now on. Can't tell the difference between it and the ones from a bank in Nigeria that has such wonderful promises about money. At least it doesn't threaten me with Hell if I don't reply.
Am done with this thread. It's now SPAM in my book.

Sorry PopMom. I just dislike preachy religious types who think their religion is the only answer in this world. Especially those who promote the prejudices I spoke about. And anyone who defends the notion of Hell has already lost some sense of human decency in my book.
BTW - am someone whose heart has stopped three times and been brought back to life each time. To me, it's not a miracle or some magical experience. It just happened and I didn't attach any metaphysical meaning to it.

Former Republican attorney general of Georgia Michael Bowers, who at one time fought against equal protection for gays, wrote:
“First, I believe if enacted into law this legislation will be an excuse to practice invidious discrimination.

“Second, if enacted, the proposed [measures] will permit everyone to become a law unto themselves in terms of deciding what laws they will or will not obey, based on whatever religious tenets they may profess or create at any given time. The potential intended and unintended consequences are alarming.”

“It is no exaggeration that the proposed [measures] could be used to justify putting hoods back on the Ku Klux Klan. For decades, Georgia’s Anti-Mask Act has prohibited wearing masks in public.

“The law was enacted to prohibit the Ku Klux Klan from wearing hoods in public, and by extension, to discourage participation in its activities. While this statute contains exceptions for holidays, sporting events, theatrical performances, and gas masks, it does not contain a religious exercise exception – because many Klansmen used religion to justify participation in the Klan.

But the proposed [measures] would create a religious exception that was purposefully excluded. Anonymous participation in hate groups would undoubtedly rise….”

Quick test to see if you're truly a Christian: Do you hate your mother and father? Read Micah 7:6, Matt 10:21, Mark 13:12, Luke 12:53, Luke 21:16 and especially 1 Luke 14:26

You may now teach Hate Seminars at your church. Don't be surprised if the KKK attends and lauds your efforts on their behalf.
