    Re: Should Chris Culliver apologize?

    The only hope is a sports analogy.

    Fan #1:  Ray Guy was a great football player - I mean one of the best corner backs in NFL history. 

    Fan#2:  Ray Guy was a punter.

    Fan #1:  Only if you are narrow minded.  If you would be more open minded you would see that Ray Guy was a GREAT cornerback.

    Fan #2:  But Ray Guy never played defense; never covered a wide receiver; never had an interception.  All he did was kick.  He punted.

    Fan #1:  Who says that punting isn't part of being a cornerback?

    Fan #2:  Every player, coach, and Fan in NFL history.

    Fan #1:  So you are clinging to you NFL encyclopedia?  That is what you are going to do to deny Ray Guy recognition as a cornerback?  That's really sick - you are like Hitler.

    Fan #2:  But the accepted definition of cornerback and punter are clear.  they couldn't be anymore clear!  If Ray Guy wanted to be a cornerback he shouldn't have chosen to be a punter.

    Fan#1:  Wow, you are so discriminatory?  Do you own slaves too?

    Fan #2:  What?!  I am talking common sense!

    Fan #1:  Common sense - yeah right.  Why don't you just admit you hate black people too.

    Fan #2:  Ray guy was a WHITE punter.

    Fan #1:  How convenient. 

    Fan #2:  What exactly do you want?

    Fan #1:  I think we should redefine the definition of cornerback so Ray Guy can get credit for all his wonderful punts.

    Fan #2:  Your are a little insane.

    Fan #1:  I AM FOR GUY RIGHTS!

    schump you've already proven you're not very good with analogies.. i'd leave those alone if i were you.




    Buddy, you are one of the dumbest people in America.  A pro-gay rights Hamas supporter.  Good luck with that.

    Oh dear, you really are serious it seems about being Mr. Marriage Police . . .  not only do you want to prevent gays from getting married, you want to stop the childless from being married. 

    I bet you're against contraception too . . . 

    Yep, just what Americans want.  

     

     

     


    I never said I was against the childless being married more than I am against anybody else being married.

     

     



    So it's not that you're anti gay marriage, it's that you're anti marriage in general.  Ah well, that at least is interesting . . . 

     

     

     

     




    I would be fine with marriage as it has been historically if not for the bruhaha about gay marriage we are embroiled in these days.

     

    The moral and legal entanglement that is marriage as we know it has become unviable.

    My solution would be to have "civil unions" conveying the same benefits as marriage to ANY two consenting adults that wished to enter into that LEGAL entanglement.

    "Marriage" would be relegated to a ceremonial endeavor and have no legal bearing whatsoever.

     

    But I fear that wouldn't satisfy gays whose agenda has little to do with rights and much to do with forcing the rest to say their behavior is moral.

     



     

    Marriage hasn't become unviable.  You just hate the idea that gays might be recognized as married so much that you would rather abolish marriage (as a legal construct) altogether than let gays get married.  Your reaction is exactly why gays insist on using the term "marriage" rather than "civil union."  They understand that many people don't see civil unions as identical to or as legitimate as marriage and therefore they are wary about accepting anything that might, now or in the future, convey lesser rights than full blown marriage.  To avoid that risk, very sensibly, they insist on marriage and not something similar, but still different, such as a civil union.

     

     

     

     




    Nonsense. I really could care less if gays are married or not. As long as I have no hand in making that a reality I'm good to go.

     

    But you again stumble trying to define my moral ground with assumptions. You see, I don't care about gays as a specific group any more or less than any other. My interest in universal civil unions goes far beyond your paltry little political agenda. The fact it also would help with the division on gays is all the more reason it would be a good thing.

    I would like to see an elderly sister and brother able to unite in a legal circumstance where they could share health insurance benefits for instance for example. An elderly mother and her daughter. Any two adults that want to partner and share benefits are what I envision.

    So, you don't know what the hell you're talking about as usual on these issues. (though you do pretty well with football talk.)




    Ah, Babe.  I see you really are a man who wants social justice for everyone.  Sure, we can have legal arrangements between all sorts of people to allow them to share property, benefits, etc.  But why abolish marriage?  You don't have to do that to do what you say you want to do.

    haha what a funny thread. i wish i could put a face to all of these characters. 

    BTW No single individual wrote the constitution. Twelve of the thirteen states sent delegates to the Constitutional Convention to revise the Articles of Confederation and the entire convention worked on it. After the political questions were hashed out a 'committee of style' was formed to put the ideas into formal words. It is generally accepted that Gouverneur Morris created most of the actual wording included in the final draft from the Committee of Style.

    That's correct.  I was simply referencing what one of the founding fathers used for words to explain to a bunch of scary Baptists, what the first amendment meant.



    Oh my goodness - now you are lying?  You said Jefferson wrote the constitution. 

    Jefferson didn't write any of it, moron.

     i'm certainly pro gay rights and proud to be, but i don't recall saying anything about Hamas... 

    but back to your analogies.. they are horrible. how can you not see your flawed logic?




     

    hey numbskull - who do you think runs Gaza?  This is what I can't stand about reflexivley liberal zombies.  You ahve all your slogans and as always no context.

    You are supporting HAMAS; take a logic class

    "The wall of separation" that you attribute to Jefferson was not his original idea but rather that of Roger Williams - Puritan and founder of the Baptist faith.  (so much for the Wall of Separation being an attack on Baptists)

    You ignorance is on display for all to see.

    We get it - you are desperate and angry.  Perhaps you are angry because you have to defend lesbianism and you are tired of it.  Who knows?

    But please - stop trying to act like you know what you are talking about.  You are in way over your head.

    wrong buddy. i don't support hamas, i support the people of palestine and their right to their land and sovereignty. hamas happens to be their elected offical and even they are powerless because in reality the IDF runs Gaza and the West Bank and the illegally occupied territories. the civilians are who i support, both palestinian and israeli. the israeli government, IDF, and violent settlers who have immunity are who i am against. you don't take time to understand my context you just want to bury your head in the sand and stick to your talking points.

     




    You don't support Hamas - you support the people who overwhelmingly elected Hamas.  You don't support Hamas but you want Hamas unchecked by Israel, because Israel is evil.  You don't support Hamas, you just have an avatar that is a Hamas propaganda piece.

    Awesome. 

    You are like a clown of fire - funny and sad at the sametime.

    i don't support either of the governments haha why is that so hard for you to understand? do you support obama? are you responsible for the foreign policy decisions he makes? 

     




     

    No I don't support Obama - which is why I don't have a "Forward" avatar.  If I did - and then denied I supported him, I would be as insane as you are.
