dori: I'm thinking you are just a wee bit sensitive. You need to get over yourself.
I wasn't sticking up for tech (he is fully capable of doing that himself). I was objecting to the silly idea of a boycott. Can't anyone read and comprehend anymore? Why does everything you read need to be filtered through your prejudicial perspective? When you do that, you generally get it wrong.
As to your link, I put about as much credence in the Huffington post as I do MSNBC or the Daily Kos, which is effectively none.
Yes, siggie, all of our politicians are now changing their story on marriage equality, and no I don't care for the hypocrisy. My point was to TT that if our own reps weren't so religious and obstinate, then there would be more harmony and goodwill in our laws instead of so black and white, this or that approach to lawmaking, with this "no marriage equality ever" attitude we have seen here in Colorado for more than 20 years since Amendment 2.
We need to stop this and have more compromise in government so that all groups can be represented and respected. Secular doesn't have to mean that our government doesn't have a heart for its people.
I laugh at TT because he insists on holding onto his homophobic attitude, not for his religious beliefs. Interesting you are always sticking up for him when just a month or so ago the boards wanted his head and to boycott his business for his blantent homophobic hate speach, but you adamantly disagreed, yet you have continued to "out" me, which is unnecessary for I am not hiding myself, but it has me wondering if this is not a form of harassment since everyone is anonymous here, yet you keep bringing it up?
Below is a link for you:
And allow us the same religious freedom over our money that you want over your body.
Besides Guru...given the court ruling allowing women to kill their children, what religious people want is only to have to pay for it, as if to co-opt us into your crime.
Pay for it yourself, but don't send us the bill for your misbehavior.
Men, Guru, have always been the protectors of women and children...and men certainly should, as the spiritual leaders God instilled in them to be, put a stop to everything from irresponsible boys impregnating women, and from women killing their babies.
And given you are a lesbian and will never get pregnant...why are you even worried about abortion?
Alan Simpson: 'Men Legislators Shouldn't Even Vote On' Abortion
The Huffington Post | By Nick Wing Posted: 03/29/2013
Former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) has never shied away from turning his trademark brand of colorful rhetoric on his own party, and on Thursday he did so again, in a scathing examination of the Republican approach on social issues.
In an interview published in the Los Angeles Times, Simpson, who has weighed in prominently on fiscal issues in recent years, blasted the trend of old, white Republican males feeling compelled to legislate on abortion.
"[It's] a hideous thing. It's terrible," Simpson said of the medical procedure. "But it's a deeply intimate and personal thing. ... Men legislators shouldn't even vote on it."
Simpson also called out what he saw as a "homophobic strain in our party," and accused members of the GOP of following a social agenda that was inconsistent with their broader political ideology.
"You're a Republican, you believe in get-out-of-your-life and the precious right to privacy, the right to be left alone," Simpson said. "Well then, pal, I don't care what you do. You can go worship the Great Eel at night, I don't give a rat's ... . But don't mess with me and don't then go take a position I have and wrap religion around it."
(Read the rest of Simpson's interview with the Times here.)
Simpson has expressed similar disagreements with Republicans on social issues in the past. In 2011, he targeted intolerance in the party, suggesting that it often ended up being a hypocritical display of hate.
"But I'm not sticking with people who are homophobic, anti-women, you know, moral values while you're diddling your secretary while you're giving a speech on moral values," he said. "Come on. Get off of it."
We all pay for this to happen for people...yet most of the money seems to be spent to pay some people to reject other people from getting the help we pay for them to have.
Solution...fire the government bureaucrats.
What happens to those of us that have depended on the food pantry? I realize how selfish I sound, but our family heavily depend on that pantry to get by. No word up. So we used some of the precious gas, hoping for something to help Easter meal. Get there, to late to go anywhere else. Blessed Easter.
I agree tech. I believe in giving people much latitude if it does not harm others or mess with their rights. However, I don't think the government should be involved. They should get out of the marriage business, the abortion and other forms of birth control business and most all other business. I can't understand why people believe a bigger government means more freedom.
Actually Planned Parent should run as other not for profits and raise money from people who like what they do rather from than tax payers who are given no choice, and whose religious principles are compromised and tread upon by this government funding.
Miz dori: I'm all for you and your civil unions or marriage. However, when you (rightly) chastise the Republicans for changing because of pure politics, please include Obama as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton who recently did the same thing. I mean, you want to be fair don't you. One thing I've noticed about you Miz dori, You laugh your ass off a lot. Can't be much left.
TT- Sounds like the GOPs are the ones to blame on this matter. I would suggest you call your Republican Reps and tell them they F'd up when they didn't pass last years bill, but wait, last year they couldn't vote for Civil Unions because that would have been soooo wrong, yet this year they are all now changing their stance to get votes for the next election. LMAO!!!
Also, how come nobody is making noise about Texas taking funding away from Planned Parenthoods who provide low cost exams, prevention screening and birthcontrol, but this is a major travisty? Only a man would take that view of women's health.
You can always measure the level of guilt by the intensity of defense on an issue. These 2 man haters are clearly afraid of having a spiritual mirror near them, since they prefer to pretend their sin is not really sin. This is not Andrews "opinion" he gives. It is just the facts of the volatile nature of homosexual relationships. If someone has a problem with God's man/woman set up, than take it up with Him. But don't shoot the messenger.
Actually yes, kids are better off anywhere but in an affectional disordered home...
But also here is the cultural attempt to establish secular religion over Christian faith.
This an attack on religious freedom, to force Catholics, again, to practice secular values.
A pox on the gay agenda and all its attempted justification of its sickness and sinfulness.
Not untypical for a new pastor to experience following a strong leader whose followers are grief stricken and not to be consoled...
No indication who the brilliant judge was who didn't understand the spiritual and emotional system, let alone understand that the church is protected from the state, and that the court really had no jurisdiction in this case.
It is their right to carry on their beliefs and I applaud them to standing up to the radical california agenda that has corrupted our state.
like I said sigge = the example of the trash that exists in this city.
lou: do you ever proof what you write before you post or is this the best you can do?
Well with just a little above 20% having turned in ballots so far in this municipal election it is clear why a small vocal minority of the community continues to control things in this town. If people want change they have to actually participate. Individuals can and do make a difference but not if they don't make their voices heard.
The PPA has been promised so nice raises by the mayor. Is it any wonder they supported who they did. The HBA owns this town until the people wake up and say enough before it is too late. If the PPA or HBA support them you should vote against them. Special interest being puppet master to candidates will destroy this city.
