I really liked your post today :)
This is for Jesse... i was not saying i felt like a 2nd rate citizen i was sorry for those who have to feel like that because of people not wanting them to have the same rights... one of the best statements ever made... "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." Eleanor Roosevelt
to reply to Potcat i am 25.... and for conservative i love how you will not go into detail to discuss all the other old testament sexual ethic issues i put into my last post. Is there a reason Conservative you dont want to discuss incest, slavery, rape, and adultery all discussed in my earlier post... And Conservative you never answered the question of eating shellfish and pork.. do you do that cause you could get in trouble according to the old testament law... i wonder why you wont answer these questions.. and if you are so hard core on old testament law why dont you read the new testament and the new covenant that christians are suppose to be under.. Jesus says, "I have come not to do away with the law but to fulfill the law" Laws didnt work, God knew humans could not live under law and keep it... so according to your own Bible that you love to quote, Jesus came because the law wasnt working. You wanna go Bible i will go head on with you on the Bible.
I just love how this topic stirs up so many emotions from so many different people. I guess some on here will never know whats it like to have rights taken away from you because of who you love. Trust me it can make some feel less than human and feel like you dont have equal rights as others... its not a good feeling trust me... being considered a 2nd rate citizen is unjust. I wish they tables could be turned for one day so everyone else could see how it feels. #disappointedinhumanity
To conservative: You call homosexuals sexual perverts that want legal protection? I love some heterosexual men call Gays perverts but the first underage girl that walks by with a developed body they stare at and fantasize about, yeah those are perverts not the gays who are adults and want to be married. Then you put a Bible verse! Let's talk sexual ethics.. Bible style. Did you not know Adam and Eve had two boys? no girls. How did they procreate? I guess one of the boys had to have sex with Eve since she was the only female. What about Abraham? He married Sarah and then she had the slave go and be his mistress openly, wouldnt this be considered fornication? Or what about David who took another mans wife and then had the man sent to battle to be killed. Or what about the slave who was rapped and then cut into pieces for being rapped because it was thought she was ruined for future men. Or what about the woman who was caught in adultery and who was going to be killed by stoning, but someone named Jesus came and said, "He who has no sin cast the first stone". Also if you wanna play old testament scriptures you are not suppose to eat pork or shellfish.. do you eat these foods conservative? Evidently you are perfect conservative, right? I love this cartoon! Can you imagine... Justice and Liberty FOR ALL? Not just for some groups or heterosexual individuals. Maybe for once us GAYS can be equal in having all rights. We pay taxes, live in these communities, work in these communities, and die in these communities, is it too much to ask for us to be allowed to be married and have the same legal protection concerning inheritance rights like others?
Maximus I do not receive food stamps. My christmas will be small but a blessing... no food stamps will buy my christmas dinner and no government check will be buying my christmas presents... what a horrible assumption to make.. those programs were intended for people who need help and i understand that some people abuse the help our government has tried to bestow on individuals. I guess my comment must have offended you because you came back very defensive.. "truth hurts" is a common saying but real. The only thing you should be comparing your "red china" too is your attitude towards people.. you would fit right in with their government regime and their "dictator" like attitude to the less fortunate... Maximus you remind me of scrooge which will be replayed this week for Christmas. You should watch it.. maybe instead of bragging on what car your gonna buy your wife for christmas you could go feed some homeless people or do some holiday charity work... because as you conservative republican individuals routinely declare, "We want the best for all Americans through our Capitalistic Empire" I guess its just the best for a select few... BAH HUMBUG to you also Mr. Scrooge and a very Capitalistic Christmas to you also.... Don't trample too many Tiny Tims this month :)
Oh Maximus, me and you are gonna get along well. I would compare our views to being how close Catherine the Great's relationship to her Russian serfs were. You also Maximus go on saying that the wealthy are an "open check book" for the poor. God forbid the top percent of the wealthy pay anymore. I understand they have to use barns and warehouses now just to store their vast wealth because the banks have run out of room. I guess they just need more and more of goods. Whats gonna be scary for them is how are they going to take all these goods with them once they leave this world. I compare these money hungry crooks to the Egyptian pharaoh's who would store and collect great amounts of worldly goods and gold and jewels.. their wealth was so enormous that they could have never possibly used it on this earth. They of course hoarded it and were buried with it thinking they could use it in the afterlife. The amount of greed and wealth these people want is disgusting to me.. Of course i assume Maximus you think all the top 1% of the wealthy "earned" their wealth right? None of them used speculation or stealing from the 'regular' stockholders did they?
okay happy username... so are you making the comment that foreign aid is now being trumped my military spending? Military spending goes right along with foreign aid.. you cannot divide something that is so closely linked together. We could stop the budget crisis by PULLING OUT ALL TROOPS FROM FOREIGN AREAS AND STOPPING THIS RIDICULOUS SPENDING. I love how we go to areas of the world where there are "dictators" and "wipe them out" but we keep "dictators" that are close to home as in Cuba. I wonder why we never messed with Castro too much? Marinate on that in your mind for awhile... the reason should be easy to figure out for anyone with half a brain.. no 1/4 of a brain. :)
Potcat you are the only one making sense on here.... Its common sense.. if one is having financial issues at home why would you be pumping money elsewhere.... 'charity starts at home' I don't know why the U.S. feels they should dominate the world... every other empire that tried this world dominance in History soon collapsed after. There is a reason we have the saying "too big for your own britches"
