Simon, I don't think I'm denigrating Obama here--and I don't think I HAVE denigrated him, personally(the things he wants to do and stands for--absolutely)--I think I'm responding to people who are continuing to denigrate his opponent's VP pick....for some reason..... And I wasn't talking about Rs an...

I have a feeling that those work out better in novels than in real life. Of course, I have a feeling that the women in Heinlein's novels work out better there than in real life. Well, I know of one heileinian style serial marriage, two S-groups, and one polyandry that seem to be flourishing. And th...

I think you're a bit too close to them--I know the feeling. My wifes' family has a bucketload of them--some who even go to minister to the heathen Catholics in South and Central America.

Jeez, yyou get all upset. It was just a vagary of thought. It just struck me that the Mormon stance might, in some part, be influenced by what was done to them.

The gays have persecuted Mormons? The gays have tried to take away equal rights from Mormons? And now the Mormons want vengeance? Is that the implication? No, the United States did.

on Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement, the stock MaRKet dropped 777 points, and this was received in the fundagelical community as a certain sign from god.

Gifting is it's own thing--it is not a give and take/abilities and needs situation. It's a 'look what I can do' economy. Perhaps the 'economic' part is a 'cast your bread upon the waters and it will come back sevenfold' economy. It's an economy based in YOU having all YOU need and everything else be...

All are equal under the LAW. If it isn't a religious issue, then why should it matter?

Those silly social and legal contracts may seem superfluous until you're denied access to someone who is sick or dying. And then there are children. Then lets have some lawyer draw up a contract that gay people can use instead of a marriage license. How hard could it be? A 'domestic patrnership' al...
