actually, he was with a consenting adult. If the church wants to make it a sin, fine, but why should it be a crime? Don't the cops have anythhing better to do?

I'd be delighted to see some thoughtful self-criticsim from JJ. If the past is prologue, I can't expect any.

Somehow, I never hear conservatives talk about defunding the military because of some of the outrageous waste that takes place there; rather, sensibly, they try to make sure that it works as efficien more »

If Gaza was left to govern itself, how come Israel still decides which boats enter its waters? whether vegetables can be exported? whether Gaza can build an airport? whether a Gazan can come to th more »
