I wish we had one really crazy conspirator. I'm talking like a Flat Earth Believer. Those threads would be fantastic.
So did the California government decide that gay marriage was not in the best interest of its citizens or did its citizens vote on it?
Does it matter?
The thread about doomsday prepping brought out some wackos. I think we just need to bait them into posting more.
Dude, I know what the full faith and credit law is. I mentioned a hypothetical situation that would never happen to make a point that people from different areas of the country believe in different things and a law for the entire country will always be debated because of the diversity in each region.
You libs sure do think you are vastly smarter than everyone else. Maybe that's why you think that you can tell everyone what they need and what to do. However, perception isn't always reality.
RE: Nole of 16 (thought I quoted)
Yes, because I don't think it's the government's business to tell kids they're fat according to a terrible metric, logically I support poison in food and pollution.

The survivalist whack jobs are definitely the best.
You're correct. But on the same token, reality isn't always best. I'm a firm believer that people that are 100% theoretical and people that are 100% realistic are 100% wrong all the time. Operating under the assumption that the world could operate in some utopian way is pie-in-the-sky to say the least; I think many would agree with that. But to also say that the world works X way now and that's the way it is and always will be is incredibly short sighted and, quite frankly, defeatist. Progress isn't a bad thing.
The persecution complex is strong with this one.
The struggles the homosexual community go through are not even close to what ethnic minorities have faced.

You're right, the struggles homosexuals face is certainly on par with slavery.
So, just because they haven't suffered as much, they don't deserve the same protections?
For the sake of arguing that not allowing gay marriage is legislatively similar to determining if children need to eat less, absolutely.
Huh? How do you equate me pointing out that you guys think you are smarter than everyone and think that you know what everyone needs with me thinking everyone is out to get me? If anything, you further proved my point that you think anyone that disagrees with you is delusional. You have a disease.
When was anyone arguing that? This line of debate started when TroyTide said that liberals are behind all government overreaching.
People also need to remember that sexual preference and race are not mutually exclusive. No, I'm not saying sexual preference had anything to do with where slaves were pulled from nor am I saying that a gay slave suffered more or less than a straight one. But when people bring up slavery as some sort of combatant to the struggles of the homosexual community, they do so in a way that almost makes it sound like you had black slaves and gay people, but none who were both. There were probably more than a handful of gay people who suffered along with the rest of the slaves.
My god, it's priceless.
"Maybe that's why you think that you can tell everyone what they need and what to do."
Hmm - not only do most liberals (hell, most people) not think this, but anyone who seriously believes this clearly feels that a certain group is telling them what they need and what they should do - basically, you believe you're being persecuted for not being liberal. Now, I'm an armchair psychologist at best, but wild generalizations like yours aren't exactly demonstrative of a perfectly well-adjusted human being.
Paraphrasing: like when the government tells people they can't get married or tells women what they can do with their bodies.
Obviously doesn't know what immutable means and doesn't know many homosexuals.
Thank you. I was trying to figure out how to make you prove that all of your opinions are concrete facts in your mind but the opinions of others that dont match yours are wrong. But you couldn't help it and chimed in before I had the chance, further proving my earlier point. Thanks for the help.
Yeah most recently at my old high school. County of 16,500 population. One person offended. ACLU got on board. Protected citizen rights by promising to bankrupt county and each member of school board with legal fees if ten commandments not removed. $500,000 in legal fees later and county had no choice.
First, TroyTide makes a ridiculous assertion:
"Everytime you see something absurd in the news where the government overreaches you really can just about always trace it back to liberals."
Then, sf2k4 provides an example refuting the ridiculous assertion.
"Like when the government tries to tell certain groups that they're not allowed to get married, right?"
Then, I provide further support for rejecting TroyTide's ridiculous assertion.
"Or when the government tells women that they don't have control over their own bodies?"
At no point did anyone mention the manner of government overreaching or even imply that marriage/abortion laws fall under any category other than "government overreach."
Not to get sidetracked, but why on earth would the county spend that much to fight something it was clearly going to lose? Seems idiotic.
Do you ever get tired of being wrong? I didn't post anything about being persecuted, nor do I feel that I am. And yes, most libs think they are "progressive" and "forward thinking" to the point that they think they know what is correct and what everyone needs, you included. Now you are so smart that you are giving out psych advise and evaluations over the Internet, further proving my point.
