What about dead presidential runner-ups since 1960?  I'm pretty sure that ALL of them would have supported it.  They were Goldwater, Humphrey, and McGovern after all.

I don't think McCain or Romney support gay marriage.

Do Kerry, Gore, Dole, Perot, Dukakis and Mondale?

In my view, Jesus is nothing more than a fairy tale character regardless of his reality in whatever sense because of the worship of his legend.
What do you have against fairy tale characters, many of whom are more "real" than human beings who actually lived in terms of their impact on human life?  "Fictional" versus "Nonfictional" is a fairly irrelevant distinction.

My problem is the very fact that they are characters. There is no truth, just interpretation. That leaves the door wide open to abuse. The very impact Jesus has had as a character is why I have a distaste for the idea of deriving a heavy amount of moral and societal value from a character that can represent anything their audience stands for. Especially when there are so many pockets of bigotry littering the bible in the name of an indisputably dominant cultural figure. But I do agree that the distinction between fictional and nonfictional historical figures is weak. It all depends on their impact as a cultural mainstay. Jesus has had a horrendous impact on the world as both.

But you are blantatly ignoring all the positive impact he had.

Could someone please enlighten me and tell me why OldiesFreak has such a bad rep here?  Looking at his posts, it seems like he definitely doesn't like Democrats, but I don't see anything awful that he says or does.  He seems reasonable and objective enough to me. 

I agree with these thoughts.  Regardless of his rigid party loyalty, his actual views and statements are not that extreme at all.  Oldiesfreak is very proud of his party's origins, as he should be.  The Republicans were far better on civil rights than the Democrats were in the past, and maybe he just wants to keep that tradition alive forever.  Other posters are hard on him, but he should also get credit for sticking to his own interpretations of history.

Except his "interpretations" are wrong.

In my personal rankings, Harrison is right in the middle. Did nothing wrong, did nothing right. That's the most logical place for him.
3265  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Which Timeline Should I Pursue? on: April 03, 2013, 03:10:03 pm

3. Buchanan vs. Clinton

3266  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which of these dead Presidents would support gay marriage, on: April 03, 2013, 02:07:10 pm
Ford, Johnson, and Kennedy for sure. Mabye on FDR, Hoover, Coolidge (in a "states rights" sense), Nixon, and Truman. No to Reagan and Eisenhower.
3267  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who was a better president? on: April 03, 2013, 01:04:54 pm
Who was? Harrison
Who would be? Garfield, of course. Arthur's term was very influenced by Garfield and his death.

I didn't support it until a few years ago, and the only reason I do is because I want to be on the right side of history.

Napoleon, meet Oldiesfreak. He has his Civil Rights history all wrong, and needs a class on it. He has been saying these things for almost as long as he has been here.
