There are more than 300 admitted Democrats in Arkansas? Must have bused some in from Memphis or Dallas.

Hey Pop - Withholding business is one thing, rounding up a posse to burn someplace down is entirely different. Have you seen anywhere that any prominent person with the GBLTQ community condemned the hate, threats, and vitriol that was directed by the GBLTQ community towards Memories Pizza? Their silence is shameful.
.
Hey kdc - A few minor clarifications on your take on government preference and logic. "...we already do give protective status to religious preference.." Religious freedom is protected within limits. The fact that limits exist to the exercise of individual liberty is ubiquitous. The question, then, isn't about preference but limits thereof in the context of public policy.
.
Logically, it is bad public policy to afford legal protection to an ambiguous state of mind. For the most part you can look at a person and know if they are black or white or male or female and should discrimination occur based on these undeniable conditions of birth it is easily ascertained. You may be more perceptive than anyone else, but the rest of us cannot tell by looking at another person whoever or whatever that other person may want to have sex with. Affording protection to an unknown is simply bad public policy.
.
Do you believe protection should be provided to all sexual orientations, natural or otherwise? Should Jerry Sandusky have been afforded civil rights protections because he was sexually oriented toward young boys? Yes, it's absurd to afford civil rights protections to pedophiles, which is only to make the point about the necessity to limit what is afforded civil rights protection.
.
And no, kdc, that's not comparing pedophiles to homosexuals. Did you by chance take college Statistics? If so, you should have learned the difference between comparisons and groupings. When we name the colors of the rainbow we are grouping them. When we analyze the blue color spectrum against the red color spectrum we compare them. Including pedophilia as a one of the alphabet soups of sexual orientation (GBLTQ) is not comparison, it's just a fact.

Hey kdc - Regarding religious persecution and Memories Pizza, it is duly noted you did not deny their persecution contrary to your contention "no one is persecuting Christians". Advantage Packman. It is duly noted you did not deny the harm caused by homosexual behavior between men contrary to your contention there is no harm when acting on "homosexual impulses". Advantage Packman. The health stats are not bogus. The data is readily available on the website for the Centers for Disease Control. Advantage Packman.
.
So, kdc, you say sexual orientation is a reflection of a natural desire. Does this apply to all sexual orientations or just the ones approved by you? For example, is it natural for adults to sexually desire little kids? Seriously, kdc, really?
.
And did I say homosexuality was "bad" for men? I believe all I did was disprove your silly statement there is no harm in homosexuality. Although, according to the irrefutable data, the risk factor does increase 100 fold. Is that a good thing, kdc? BTW, is cervical cancer in straight women 100 times greater than lesbians? Can't the HPV virus be transferred by foreign objects? Is Ellen's new corporate sponsor really Strap On Tools?
.
Hey Pop - "We should instead follow the example of Christ and treat others with compassion and understanding." Like all that compassion and understanding the GBLTQ community showed that salt-of-the-earth co-owner of Memories Pizza? SMDH.

Michael Brown's parents set to sue the city of Ferguson April 23, 2015 at 3:15 p.m.

Tort reform? We don't need no stinking tort reform. Don't take my word for it, just ask the trial lawyers association or anyone who voted for BH Obama.

Benghazi probe held up, GOP says April 23, 2015 at 3:13 p.m.

Hey 3rdWorld - And whose fault is it the Republicans have the email fodder to stick up HRC's rather prolific and ever-expanding backside?
.
Hey NOTAGAIN - Since we (read you) know what happened, why did BH Obama, HRC, and various Obama mouthpieces keep saying the attack was spontaneous and caused by some silly internet video when they knew their story to be a lie?

Hey 3rdWorld - Speaking of looking foolish and ignorant, "And Thinkfree says he's learned to things", it's "two", not "to". Seriously people, you cannot make this stuff up. ROFLMMFAO!

Hey Pop - "While I've thought about running for political office, I just don't have the stomach for the amount of work involved for a major position." I have the stomach for it, but can't afford the pay cut.

Hey kdc - ".......acting on pedophilic impulses means harming another and acting on homosexual impulses does not." Not true, kdc. Gay men are harmed by AIDS and rectal cancer at about 100 times the rate of straight men. So, is sexual orientation now an "impulse"?
.
"And no one is persecuting Christians." Not true again, kdc. Google "vitriol memories pizza" and get back with me on that.
.
Hey PopMom - Why do you equate hate with honest disagreement about good and bad public policy?

( | suggest removal )

The tangled web April 23, 2015 at 2:12 p.m.

Hey kdc - Alas, would you show where anywhere in the law it notes the exercise of religious freedom to be a "civil" right? What is a "civil right", kdc?
.
"It does not matter if homosexuality is a preference or not.... Excellent point. As Dr. Gitz so plainly explained, it is bad public policy regardless (..."to apply the civil-rights template used to dismantle Jim Crow in unthinking fashion to something as inherently ambiguous as sexual preference.")
.
"I did not equate human behavior with animal behavior." Yes you did when you said homosexuality is consistent with nature. Homosexuality is an intrinsically human term that is foolishly applied to equate human behavior with animals. Would you mind, kdc, to describe two "homosexual" behaviors witnessed in animals? In doing so you will allow me the opportunity to illustrate any notion that "homosexuality" is natural.
.
So, kdc, let's take your logic on civil rights designation and sexual preference to logical conclusion. Some people are sexually oriented toward dead people. Some adults sexually oriented toward little kids. Do you support civil rights protections for pedophiles?
.
Why, kdc, do you ignore the question about sexual preference expressed along a continuum? ThinkFree may in fact have struck a nerve of yours somewhere along that continuum.
