So Lambert is gonna sic God's vengeance on us because he hates gays? So religion is for the sic(k), huh??
--
I am afraid of the depths of wickedness that will be plumbed when some twisted soul takes it upon himself to execute "god's vengeance" upon those he hates. And to think that these evil people will consider themselves holy.

Erasing history July 11, 2015 at 8:42 a.m.

As long as you see hypocrisy wherever it is, that's good. Don't close your eyes to any of it.

drs01 -- don't push the lie that the civil war references are going to be erased from history books. I recall no one having that as their agenda. It seems like a cheap right-wing propaganda trick to lure gullible people into false thinking about the issue. We don't need such BS littering the discussion.

It's not about slavery -- talk about erasing history with one false sentence. Am also a descendant of CSA soldiers. Am not going to speak that hypocritical lie that the Civil War was fought by the South because of freedom and liberty.

Trampling Article V July 11, 2015 at 5:25 a.m.

It does seem like we are being asked by the supporters of so-called "religious freedom" to accept the notion that bigotry is a virtuous trait. It's right up their with the biblical injunctions for slaves to obey their masters and for women to STFU while in church.

Maybe the Irish have a more sound approach to life overall:
--
An Irishman's Philosophy
--
In life, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you are well or you are sick.
--
If you are well, there is nothing to worry about,
But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will get well or you will die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about,
--
But if you die, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will go to heaven or hell.
If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.
--
And if you go to hell, you’ll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends
You won’t have time to worry!

Bigotry equals virtue, don't try again.

bandagedknee does the old cotton candy speech. Like cotton candy, I found his platitudes and vague blathering somewhat nice, but insubstantial and hard to grasp. Still, it was a pleasant change from the overbearing Bible-thumping uber-religious folks tend to choke you with.
Sort of like that beer commercial: Less filling, tastes great. Well, not exactly. There really was no flavor of note in his sonorous soapbox show. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Dana, Dana, Dana. Just come out of the closet and be honest for once. Tell folks you hate homosexuality, you shudder when around gays (LGBTs), and the notion of same-sex marriage galls you. Your idea of religious freedom is the right to act upon your prejudices against them without fear of reprisal.
What's a little discrimination gonna do to the Constitution and to people anyway??

Because they're consenting adults. We have laws against polygamous marriages & incest but NOT against homosexual marriage.
Basically, it's legit. If you want to disagree with it, take it to the Supreme Court. See if your legal wizardry flies or flops (probably will be the latter but don't let that deter you and your dreams).
Game basically is over. Trends have the public more accepting of same-sex marriage. Equality and justice and fairness are important words to more people. And most folks recognize the illogic that is inherent in slippery slope arguments such as the one you attempted to foist off on us. Plenty of online examples that will help even you learn why it is so flawed.
Of course, you still can argue about why have marriage at all or about marrying watermelons and cantalopes. It'll be like street-corner preaching - most everyone will pass you by and ignore you. They have better things to do.

Veterans group opposes awards for Oklahoma City bombing victims July 9, 2015 at 2:50 p.m.

Their deaths aren't good enough for this group of vets. Really cold-hearted.

Man, you ought to really love ISIS for their sincere religious convictions. And how about those suicide bombers - they'll die for their convictions. Yep, nothing like admiring folks with convictions (as long as you ignore what those convictions are for). How about Tim McVeigh's convictions - want to tell us how much you admired them? And who could have convictions as strong as Adolf Hitler and the lengths he went to to see that those beliefs were put into law and practice??
--
Yep, nothing holier than having convictions, right??
--
But really - do you thing it's not a stretch to compare a man who fought against bigotry (King) with a woman (Guffey) who stands to defend bigotry??
