To be fair, I've never met a homosexual who has stayed in a relationship longer than a month and having lived in the Bay Area, CA and Santa Fe, NM, I have met my fair share.
..and I've known 6 different gays/lesbians and everyone of them was in a relationship for longer than a month while I knew them.  Many gay men are whores, but so are many straight men.

Concurred with the other two.  I certainly don't dislike you.  It comes across as if you're trying to hard to be liked or something.  Your whole identity comes across like a large "brag".  "King of the Bench Press", can't you imagine what other people thing when they see that name?  Bragging about sh**t on a message board will normally bring most of that message board out against you (unless you've already solidified your position among the forum elite).  You need a few thousand posts before you can start telling people how much money you or your parents make and how expensive of a car you can buy or how much you can lift.  Even then you'll alienate some people.  Liar's and braggarts always piss me off even when I like the person doing it, hell, sometimes it's even me.

Yep, and that's one of the many reasons why they suck so much.

Well sure and I'd mary Rosie O'Donnel for the money if it wan't for all that other stuff that you need to do there. Smiley

Yeah, I know about that stuff.  I just didn't want it to look like the USAF or the military in general was full of Fundies.  It isn't.

How would you know?  Who else would be crazy enough to go into the military?
That's right, you'd know better than I.  Your preconceived notions trump my anecdotal evidence.

re Kerala:

As a state government, it's powers are by definition limited. But the Communist-led LDF (Left Democratic Front) has been willing to go in and out of power peacefully, and they've followed the rules of democracy.
Shocking isn't it?  Communists going in and out of power peacefully.  But aren't they supposed to?  Isn't this like congratulating a father that pays child support?  You're supposed to go in and out of power peacefully and you're supposed to pay child support.

Your schools use/d IQ scores to see who could take advanced classes?  How odd.  What if you made good grades but preformed poorly on the IQ?  They don't force people with high IQ's into these classes did they? 

I'm nearly positive when I was in High School you actually had to preform to get in the advanced classes.

Republican in-fighting. I love it.
They're amateurs compared to the Dems.

As for the OP, I don't care.  The Republicans sold out to the Fundies a long time ago.

The left's been saying this since about 6 months after Iraq started.  When do we get to stop listening?

Yeah I doubt they will do it in August. If I was Bush I would wait till October 31st. Its Halloween nobody would notice. Also election in a few days. But I am just being a conspiracy theorist aren't I? I hope you are right man but if you are wrong, I blame it on you and other people like you who still think the Bush administration has the country's interests at heart.
You can't blame me, I've never voted for the guy.

Given what has taken place at the Air Force Academy over the last seven years, I am not surprised to see extremist Evangelicalism taking hold in other branches of service.  I'm sorry that it's happening, but hardly shocked.
You seem to be implying that the USAF is full of Fundies.  I've met a lot of AF dudes (I've worked as one or with them since 1994) and I haven't seen it.  There are a lot more drunks than there are Fundies.
17093  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Iraqis claim Marines are pushing Christianity in Fallujah on: May 29, 2008, 12:08:16 pm
Not the way it was done in the article no.  One shouldn't pimp his/her religion while wearing the uniform of the US military.  Off duty might be a different story.

2006 Mazda 3 27-30mpg depending on how heavy my foot is.  I got the least efficient car in an efficient class, but it's a hell of a lot more fun to drive compared to the others Smiley  Now if they'll only make the Mazdaspeed3 in AWD (they can build one) and I can convince my wife it's ok to get a stick shift (she can drive one).  I am halfassed looking for a good deal on an older beater car like opebo's (the Corolla).

What did same sex marriage ever do to you?

But please...stay in Oklahoma...better for everyone.

It just goes against everything I believe.

Um... what is that last statement supposed to mean?  To be honest, I take it as an insult.
I have never expressed "hatred" for gays and lesbians.  I've got two friends who are gay.  I just won't throw the Bible out the window and support gay marriage.  I believe so strongly in the Bible that I cannot support gay marriage.  Marriage is an institution designed by God for a man and a woman.  I cannot in good conscience support a measure that goes against that.  I totally understand there are people who don't believe in the Bible, or don't believe in that part of the Bible.  That's fine.  If my gay friends wanted to marry someone of their own gender, then I would walk to the civil union table with them, but I cannot and will not walk with them to the marriage ceremony.  It doesn't mean I don't love them, I just love my God more.

I'm sorry if you think all Southern Baptist Christians are "bigoted".  To be honest, I'd rather be called a "bigot" then to be called a "Bible compromiser".
It's sh**t like this why I'm not a So.Baptist anymore.  One of the biggest problem the world faces and has always faced is people sticking their religion into their government.  It ain't chocolate and peanut butter it's oil and water.  It's fine if your against gay marriage, just get a better reason than "my bible tells me it's wrong" especially when even that is easily debatable.

I don't even care if gay people can get married or not, personally, I think they should be working towards civil unions.  What would be wrong with gay people having a civil union being recognized by the state and then having a ceremony where they get "married".  I don't understand why the govt is in the business of "marriage" in the first place, why should two married people have different tax obligations compared to two other random people?

But bottom line, the right in this country is way off base on this one.
