              - Maybe  Kaleva   Apr-02-09 08:44 AM   #171 
                 - Your last sentence is so very true.  Marrah_G   Apr-02-09 09:02 AM   #175 
           - If so, then he's right not to take our opinions too seriously.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 01:10 PM   #186 
              - Tolerance is NOT a two way street, if it were...  Solon   Apr-02-09 02:52 PM   #192 
                 - We were talking about tolerating our own Democratic president, Solon.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 02:59 PM   #194 
                    - Let's see, David Duke is against interracial marriage, Obama is against same sex marriage...  Solon   Apr-02-09 03:00 PM   #195 
                       - Apples and oranges. President Obama is not David Duke.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 03:06 PM   #196 
                          - Actually, the only argument that's new when comparing between the two...  Solon   Apr-02-09 03:12 PM   #198 
                             - Laws against interracial marriage were a recent innovation that altered a traditional right...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 03:34 PM   #200 
                                - That's categorically false, same sex marriages were recognized in ancient cultures in Southeast...  Solon   Apr-02-09 03:45 PM   #202 
                                - To make my point further...  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:14 PM   #207 
                                - I'm sorry, but that is really a S T R E T C H...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 04:21 PM   #210 
                                   - Uhm, you do realize that they have DOCUMENTS of this union, do you not?  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:30 PM   #215 
                                      - Okay, you're looking at a whole bunch of paintings...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 04:56 PM   #228 
                                         - Yeah, if you consider hieroglyphics to be "just a bunch of paintings"...  Solon   Apr-02-09 05:20 PM   #241 
                                            - Oh, well, at least she's keeping the thread kicked.  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 05:28 PM   #246 
                                            - Let's not mention that some Roman Emperors married men, shall we?  Solon   Apr-02-09 05:31 PM   #247 
                                            - Roman Emperors? Did they exist?  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 05:35 PM   #250 
                                            - Heehee, yes I did, after all, its not like the Romans wrote anything down...  Solon   Apr-02-09 05:38 PM   #252 
                                            - ROFL - I was actually annoyed at first at your adversary; now I'm having a good laugh.  closeupready   Apr-02-09 06:54 PM   #286

                                - Reminds me of how people have claimed there were matriarchies...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 04:17 PM   #208 
                                   - Talk about apples and oranges! I never claimed it was either widespread...  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:28 PM   #212 
                                - You are completely incorrect. Same-sex marriage has been recognized  closeupready   Apr-02-09 04:10 PM   #206 
                                   - Nope.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 04:27 PM   #211 
                                      - So basically you are discounting Roman, Greek, Native American and many other cultures customs...  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:32 PM   #217 
                                      - I'm discounting it because your evidence...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:16 PM   #238 
                                         - I didn't make up shit. n/t  Solon   Apr-02-09 05:21 PM   #242 
                                      - "Nope"?? WTF. Hate to break it to you, but reality is not based in your ignorance.  closeupready   Apr-02-09 06:45 PM   #283 
  - True, but that belief wasn't strong enough to get him to support Prop 8  Hippo_Tron   Apr-03-09 02:46 AM   #305 
  - Faith-Based has no business in government.  BlueJac   Apr-01-09 06:03 PM   #126 
  - What's the problem?  RetroLounge   Apr-01-09 06:22 PM   #128 
  - Fuck any "Faith Based Council" in government.  flvegan   Apr-01-09 07:15 PM   #135

        - we shall see, now won't we?  mitchtv   Apr-02-09 02:40 PM   #190 
        - Mister, I don't care what you do.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 02:54 PM   #193 
           - Then why are you in this thread?  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 03:43 PM   #201 
              - apparently, because she likes to taunt people who don't have equal rights  ruggerson   Apr-02-09 04:37 PM   #220 
              - OMG... you're really comparing yourself to the Little Rock Nine?  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 04:55 PM   #225 
                 - I'm comparing you to the people who mocked them and tried to hurt them  ruggerson   Apr-02-09 04:58 PM   #230

                          - No, I laugh off the ultimatum, as I said.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:55 PM   #266 
                             - Which is essentially laughing at gay people.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 05:56 PM   #267 
                             - Only if you think that one individual has the authority to represent a larger group...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:59 PM   #269 
                                - Does Obama represent the larger group of Democrats, or just himself?  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 06:02 PM   #270 
                                - Well, we elected him.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 06:15 PM   #274 
                                   - So one person can represent a larger group then.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 06:21 PM   #276 
                                      - Sure, IF we elect him.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 06:22 PM   #277 
                                         - Not generally? So sometimes then, right?  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 06:25 PM   #279

                 - "Before then, I cared about people's feelings."  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 04:56 PM   #227 
                 - Yes, it's all the fault of gay people who didn't support Obama in the primaries  ruggerson   Apr-02-09 04:57 PM   #229 
                    - I found a lot of what happened during the primaries insulting...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:10 PM   #235 
                       - Baby.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 05:16 PM   #237 
                       - kindness and understanding do not always lead to agreement  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:25 PM   #243

        - Wow, we've got a live bigot on our hands  ruggerson   Apr-02-09 04:20 PM   #209 
        - I guess you missed the day this person claimed that transpersons  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 04:28 PM   #213 
           - Yeah, why wasn't he banned for that again, I thought transphobia wasn't allowed here. n/t  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:34 PM   #219 
              - Evidently it isn't transphobia if you just have  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 04:43 PM   #222 
                 - Or the APA, I love it that this guy tries to portray himself as "reasonable" when he...  Solon   Apr-02-09 04:45 PM   #223 
                    - I'm a she. If you're going to smear me, at least be accurate.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:03 PM   #232 
                       - you smeared yourself without us helping you at all  ruggerson   Apr-02-09 05:07 PM   #234 
                       - Nope. I've said specifically what annoys me about this whole debate.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:13 PM   #236 
                          - Yes, post #189 by you clearly shows how much you care about gay people.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 05:19 PM   #240 
                          - Yep, she's a giver.  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 05:25 PM   #244 
                          - I wasn't talking to "gay people". I was talking to one individual.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:36 PM   #251 
                             - But the question is, what group do you identify with, "Ignoramus Anonymous"? n/t  Solon   Apr-02-09 05:43 PM   #255 
                             - So potentially hurting the feelings of one DU-er  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 05:45 PM   #257 
                             - Nice try.  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:49 PM   #261 
                                - Well, he mentioned that he was elderly  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 05:52 PM   #264 
                             - You used the words "gays"...plural, saying they weren't your problem.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 05:48 PM   #259 
                                - That's the most creative interpretation yet!  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 05:51 PM   #263 
                                   - And I commented on what you said.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 05:55 PM   #265 
                                      - Okay, here's where you've gone wrong...  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 06:21 PM   #275 
                                         - Because many of the people who promised to do that were gay.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 06:24 PM   #278 
                                            - Oh, really?  NorthernSpy   Apr-02-09 06:32 PM   #280 
                                            - Because many have spoken out about these issues long before Obama was even a candidate.  Forkboy   Apr-02-09 06:36 PM   #281 
                                            - Is it me, or did it get quiet in here suddenly...  Starry Messenger   Apr-02-09 06:52 PM   #284
