James Dobson, Focus on the Family founder, is back →

and he’s using the National Day of Prayer (don’t roll your eyes yet) to call President Obama (wait for it) the “abortion president” (ok go!)

Roberts: Don't bother trying to discuss your god with "atheist swine" on social media →

Here’s a guy who is doesn’t really believe in what he’s doing. If he really believes this God exists, he must be interested in discussing it with people besides the people who already believe in it.

He’s really just afraid to face how indefensible and illogical his view is. He’s instructing his listeners to close their ears and close their minds, same thing these Christian Conservative usurpers have been doing since time immemorial.

Im an athiest and I have a gay sister who is in a relationship. The attitude and actions of my sis, her gf and their friends is what changed my vote to "no" on gay marriage. They dont want equality.

You and your anon are both the dumbest fucking idiots I ever heard in my life. What the fuck are you even talking about?

A group of teenagers of lgbtq experience gathered and complained about their oppression you felt compelled to fucking crash and then take offense? Fuck you shit-for-brains.

And who is this inhuman monster anon whose brain is so weak he or she can’t come up with a better argument other than his gay sister (which I’m sure is waayy real) “doesn’t want equality.”

You’re liars and you should delete your blog before I embarrass the shit out of you.

Oh, hey. It’s been a while since I’ve seen something like this.

You and your anon are both the dumbest fucking idiots I ever heard in my life. What the fuck are you even talking about?

We are dumb because our personal experiences? Everyone’s views are shaped by personal experiences.

Actually, some people who are smarter than you, you dumb fuck, base their views on reason, evidence and an appreciation for humanity. People who base their views on some personal experience are committing the fallacy of anecdotal evidence, which I’ll explain to you, since you’re such a dumb fuck you probably won’t even click the wiki link I provided: YOU ARE NOT A SAMPLE SET.

A group of teenagers of lgbtq experience gathered and complained about their oppression you felt compelled to fucking crash and then take offense? Fuck you shit-for-brains.

There were adults there too. I was at a LBGT party. I think it was the Christmas party? It was an open event to parents, family, friends, faculty and pretty much the entire school. Even though it wasn’t that big, there were very much adults there. I didn’t crash. The whole school was invited. They weren’t talking about oppression. They just said they hated straight people and all the straight people got on board. I went with a friend who was going to support her trans-woman ex. I didn’t stay long since I was working at the time but it was fun even with the straight hate. x)

Now I am just basing this on my personal experience, but my guess is that they were actually just talking about you. Also, come on, you said you hung out at the lgbt club and never went back, strongly implying you crashed their club meeting.

And who is this inhuman monster anon whose brain is so weak he or she can’t come up with a better argument other than his gay sister (which I’m sure is waayy real) “doesn’t want equality.”

Are you still saying that personal experiences don’t define our views? Because I bet many of your views are based on personal experiences. Are you invalidating a gay person’s identity?

What? Invalidating? Kid, you make no sense. Try explaining what you’re talking about when you wander off into nutcase right-wing fucking bigot land.

Because even I know that is frowned upon. Marriage isn’t the same as equality. And for all either one of us could know they could take a similar stance to me and believe in no form of government marriage because the government has no right to define marriage.

uh, number one, I don’t think that about the government and marriage. The government doesn’t “define marriage” that’s an incredibly immature and unsophisticated view of what benefits marriage affords people under the law and in private business, as well as in society. 

Number two I know marriage is not the same as equality. Equality of marriage is the topic of this discussion. Marriage is the thing that is not equal, but ought to be. You’re sitting here, like a little shit, saying a bunch of defensive and conflicting things, such as that people of lgbtq experience don’t want to get married according to one party you went to and some liar’s made up sister, and that the government shouldn’t recognize marriage which really just shows that you have no appreciation for what marriage is. I suggest you talk to a grown up.

I really thought this was going in a whole different direction until I saw no. I change my decision before I was a (practicing, active) Christian because I hung out with the lgbt club in high school and they really just sat around saying they hate straight people.

and the straight people were like yea, str8 is h8 man. And I never went back.

You’re liars and you should delete your blog before I embarrass the shit out of you.

You embarrassed yourself more than you embarrassed me or this anon. You claim we are liars yet where is your proof? You only claim we are liars because we hold different views than you. You assumed I crashed a party that I was very much invited too, you assumed that you know what the conversations were that night, you assume that we lie, you assumed that there is no sister that is gay. Why would I delete my blog? I didn’t result to petty insults, assumptions, and false accusations.

What a clown.

Okay let’s be real:

First off, I am not in opposition to gay marriage because it’s not my place.

There are a million solid arguments on why gay people should be allowed to get married. 

But I have yet to hear a single valid reason as to why gay people should want to get married.

Don’t get me wrong, I”m not trying to stop you, but given what marriage actually is (or is supposed to be) I don’t really see the point. Can somebody explain?

1) religious- not every religion is based on the Bible (by the way, your characterization of the history of marriage is 100% wrong and puts your myopia on display.)

2) financial- financial benefits and privileges from banks, house and medical loans, insurance companies and the state and federal governments are awarded to married couples.

3) social- a society that affords a right to one group and not another effectively stigmatizes that other group. It makes them ‘less than.’ That’s not American equality at all. People should be able to share their happiness with their whole extended families in a big gaudy ceremony just like anyone else. Community standing is important to adults, kid.

4) legal- spouses are given legal benefits including power of attorney, hospital visitation rights, military notification, adoption preferences, so many more that it’s ridiculous to list.

The fact that you don’t know this tells me you’re a child who knows nothing about marriage.

It’s been two weeks since the Islamist group, whose name means “Western education forbidden”, kidnapped nearly 200 young girls.

and one church is suing. If only there were a really obvious precedent about what to do in cases where the state makes a law respecting a religious establishment like this. Conservatives seem to quote it all the time and yet, they reject it when it’s time to adhere to it.
