No Tyler or Cleveland....ugh...

I can understand why such a twisted being as yourself would say Cleveland, but John Elected-to-the-Confederate-Congress Tyler?

Bertrand Russell's grandfather, if that means anything.
1681  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: What do you find immoral? on: March 13, 2014, 01:51:57 pm
Well, that's orthogonal to the point at hand.  What if I said the same thing about having brown hair?  "I don't mind working with brown haired people, after all, we're all sinners and I forgive them for having brown hair." 

Brown hair is an immutable characteristic. Having sex with people of your own gender is not. I'm not defending bigotry, only pointing out that immutable characteristics vs. personal choice is the underlying legal complication in same-sex rights and so forth.

Homosexuality is immutable. Should gay people all be celibate? Furthermore, why is having gay sex immoral in and of itself?

Don't watch The Book of Mormon... before during or after, if you really are going to be a missionary....

Let's just say it pokes way too much fun at the LDS church, Africa, and a bunch of other things.

If you've already seen it, don't believe anything (Not that I've ever been a missionary for anything or anyone ever...)

IIRC Zioneer's already seen it, and even if he hadn't he seems like the kind of person who'd be cool with it.

I blame Obama.
Nah, Benghazi caused it.

No, it was obviously the Western capitalist media!

Can we just consolidate all of BRTD's threads into one massive Update remake set in Minnesota instead of Oklahoma?

I suggest Pope Francis should run for president on an independent ticket with Bill as his VP. Tongue

How does one propose to be head of state of two states? (The Vatican and the United States)

I don't think there's any law against it.

...Do you really have Hitler quotes in your signature?

No, the second one's Goebbels IIRC.

   Is it Dr. Goebbels? Could've sworn that was Adolf. If you can show me it was Goebbels, I'll change my signature to show that.

Oh, wait, apparently you're right. Wikiquote says it's from Mein Kampf.

Term limits are worthless and should be repealed.

For legislators I agree, but they are an essential check on the power of the executive.

Do elections not suffice?
1689  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Sexual abuse has become a huge problem for America's bible colleges on: March 12, 2014, 11:32:43 pm
In this thread: Christian bashing under the guise of a serious crime.

Yeah I'm not seeing any reliable evidence that "sexual abuse" takes place any more at these colleges than at any other college or university.  Does anyone have any good statistics from a reliable source (ie not vice.com)?

Why is sexual abuse in quotes? 

It's Link, Atlas's own personal redpiller.

Obviously, Caiaphas was a fiscally conservative, pro gun maverick. Unlike the more socially conservative, blue dog, Pilate, Caiaphas would have favoured civil unions.

If you think I'm harsh regarding gays, Caiaphas would make me look like a social liberal.

Yes, because he lived in the first century CE. You, interestingly enough, do not.
Caiaphas is living now. The Russian Government was able to bring him back from the dead, and he's been running things ever since. Do you really think Putin is in charge?

They must do a number with the Photoshop:

Great movie.  Great, great movie.

Mostly because of the homosexuality and bestiality.

Wow. The vote is almost the same as Harrison.

Yeah, except the Harrison thread only had 30 votes, so I don't think people cared a whole lot about him.

No one really cares about Benjamin Harrison.

I suppose I could accept a Harrison/O'Sullivan ticket.

Got to love congress, spying is now a major issue since it is happening to them.

Ummm... yeah.  Backing up (and never reading) the inane text messages of adolescents does not threaten the very basis of the Republic.

It's a little thing called a sense of discretion.  I wish more people in public office had it... I'm looking at you Rand Paul.

So you support the CIA's actions? Or should Congress not follow the same rules because they're better than the plebeians?

LBJ only barely an FF? I though we were better than that.
1699  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Summary of political beliefs on: March 11, 2014, 11:19:12 pm
Very socially conservative. A few examples;
Abortion: Only when the life of the mother is seriously threatened.
Gay "Marriage": Completely and totally illegal.
Drugs: Marijuana should be completely illegal, and I'm not too fond of alcohol or cigarettes but I realize those two would be nearly impossible to illegalize, so I'll tolerate them in moderation.
Church and State: Keep "In God we Trust", school prayers should be allowed but determined based on the school districts, freedom OF religion not FROM religion, take out the "Solemnly swear" parts of oaths and return to what it was, etc.

Moderately economically conservative. A few examples;
Taxes: Should be a universal tax rate from the bottom of the ladder to the very top, with the exception being the absolute poorest of the poor, whom should receive government assistance, but must prove they are actively trying to secure a job that can pay for themselves.
Deficit Spending: Slash spending across the board, with the only exceptions being education and the military.
Welfare: Only for the poorest of the poor, and drug test applicants.
Debt Ceiling: Lower, lower, LOWER!!!!


May I be the first to say that you make me, as a gay man, an atheist, a man who thinks government shouldn't control what you put in your body, a man who believes that those who can afford it should give back to the community, who believes that science should lead the way on issues of women's health and that women shouldn't be made to carry their rapist's baby, that our military is bloated and needs to be cut, and that everyone deserves a basic standard of living, sick? I think you might find a certain other Vladimir to be a good friend of yours.

Actually, I'm a big Putin fan. So is 70% of Russians and most Crimeans. Smiley

Good to know, I'll need a good punching bag about which to get needlessly angry and rant on the internet. Now, starting with the easy questions, why should gay marriage be illegal?
