The fact religious scripts is being used to promote any kind of hate is just ridiculous. I'm not religious and even I know that's the most ungodly thing to use the bible for.

They break many of their own rules (Christians) and ignore that. But when a man of another religion or culture breaks something else they go nuts at them like a Mormon trying to prove he is right although completely wrong. Tis' sad D=

"Funny, same thing happened at the start of last century for votes for women, except we now call them suffragettes, and heroes. Their crime was because women didn't have the vote, just as gay people don't have equal rights now.

/end bigot."

The suffragettes were mostly bigots themselves and it's arguable whether they had any effect on the vote being extended again and if so, whether they hastened or delayed it.

If you want some actual heroes, try the people who started the voting reform movement and achieved the main successes of it. Not the suffragettes, who jumped on the bandwagon at the end, threw masses of their sexism into it and had a policy of assaulting policemen in order to get arrested and play the victim.

Heroes? No.

As for the parades thing, I think that's at best counter-productive and at worst bigoted. So they're proud of not being straight. Fine. I'll put them in with the people who are proud of not being black, or whatever.

I see nothing wrong with using ad hominem arguments when I am indeed shocked by the very nature of your beliefs, and therefore the very nature of your character.

"I'm not leaving because baseline buck passers have continued to fist this country into the ground."

This is typical old bitter man talk. What does that even mean. Who exactly are you talking about? Where are the stats to back this up. Continued to fist the country into the ground... what are you even talking about? This is random and typical rhetoric that is more preaching than it is real economical/political opinion...

Xavroche: I'm not surprised that you have yet another baseless argument and have reverted to ad hominem attack. The only thing that surprised me was that I'd given you the benefit of the doubt and had figured maybe, what, ten more posts until your entire argument disintegrated?

For your information, I am an extremist. The Constitution is the basis for this nation and, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm not leaving because baseline buck passers have continued to fist this country into the ground. You seem to think it's right but I reserve the right to think it's not. Deal with it.

Edit: I was rereading your post and I think you are confusing Constitutionalism with Libertarianism. Constitutionalism is sometimes mislabeled as libertarian.... However they are not one and the same and I am in no way a constitutionalist.

Whatever the case, I still think you should get your facts straight before you have the audacity to attempt to challenge someone's self concept.

To everyone else, sorry about the multiple posts....

Also you are wrong, most libertarians would not find issue with federal entitlement because of Constitutional issues, but simply because they believe that strong entitlement programs go against basic free market principles and will not produce greater utility than laissez faire. However saying that you aren't a libertarian if you aren't against federal entitlement shows a very narrow and grossly misunderstood view of libertarianism as a political theory.

@StudentofMan: I'm glad you can define a "true libertarian" in such simple terms but as I've already stated I'm a MODERATE libertarian. I hate to pull this card but I do have a Master's in Political Science so I think I can correctly label my political beliefs, thank you very much.
I'm glad you think you can correct my political views after such a short paragraph on my part, but I'd rather you just take your pretention and shove it where the sun don't shine. Libertarianism is a very loose set of principles and cannot be defined as easily as you seem to imply.

I don't think you correctly understand what libertarianism is, so here are some basic links so you don't say something stupid next time:

And stop having parades for Christ's sake! I love the vag, but you don't see me putting it on my bumper or marching down Main Street.

Meaning the homos, I assume. Funny, same thing happened at the start of last century for votes for women, except we now call them suffragettes, and heroes. Their crime was because women didn't have the vote, just as gay people don't have equal rights now.

/end bigot.

And xavroche, you're not a Libertarian. A true Lib would find issue with federal entitlement programs as it is not explicitly empowered to the federal government to engage in such practices by the US Constitution. Therefore it is a responsibility afforded the individuals states to determine. It's great to say "If you don't like it leave.", but those are not the principles the USA was founded under. Like it or not, he has a right to say whatever he wants without the fear of reproach. Unless it's a disparaging media outlet and your the president...

Maddog, until he scientific community identifies the exact gene and then universally acknowledges that to be the only cause of homosexuality, I'll reserve judgment. That said, this is all a non-issue. So long as no one is trying to jam their penis in my ass, I don't care; nor should anyone else.

And stop having parades for Christ's sake! I love the vag, but you don't see me putting it on my bumper or marching down Main Street. Anyone ever think that maybe the gay community does just as much to hurt their cause as the religious right does to keep this issue alive? This may come as a surprise to many, but the rest of the world doesn't really care about your life as we're too busy living our own. Get over it, we have...

@Genocyde: Ok so you aren't a bible thumper. I apologize for using "you" in my previous post.

Just because I was working in Europe when I created this account, doesn't mean I don't pay taxes in the US.

As a moderate libertarian, I find uber libertarians like you border on very dangerous extremism. I get that you cry yourself to sleep when you tally up the taxes you pay each year, but get over it. Quit obsessing about all those people "abusing the system" and stealing your money. America is what it is, and though the budget is far from perfect, there will never be a time when some of our taxes won't go to pay for some people who can't afford to live by their own means. If it really bothers you to the point where you have to be a little b%!*% about it and write propesterous things like that you don't want to "pay for the risky behavior of gay people" then have the balls to just get the f%$! out of here and go to a country where you won't have to pay for

"Google it! C'mon man..I can post a hundred links and it's still not enough for most people! "

I did search for it. I found uncertainty, lack of supporting evidence and a lot of different but very clear biases.

In other words, par for the course for the web.

This selection of articles is a much better source of information about what the Christian bible says about homosexuality, because that BBC one is superficial and almost completely ignores the massive issue of translation. It didn't even query the extremely poor translation of Leviticus 18:22 that it quoted.

http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_bi...

It's a good website in general - 5 people with wildly different and often mutually exclusive religious views co-write hundreds of articles on religion, attempting to prevent any religious bias in the articles while explaining the various different viewpoints held by different theists.

>> like I allready stated, the subject requires further reseach. It is true to say that certain "genes" can be found in all humans. However, the diffrence is down to the gene being active or not. In many cases of the identical twins, certain genes could be found to be active in one twin, but not the other. Those same genes where also found to be active in many homosexuals yet not in their straight counterparts or syblings. Whilst its not 100% proof in certain peoples eyes, it does raise more questions to which answers are required! I'd suggest you start by watching "The Secret Life of Twins" documentry, for example! After that I have at least 18 factual book titles covering genetics and nature. You can make your own mind up after that.

There is a lot more to it than I'm saying but I really dont want to write a small book about it!

The_Maddog:

Please show me the gay gene.

Simple as that.

I think the causes are still unknown (and unimportant).
--------------------------------------------------

Google it! C'mon man..I can post a hundred links and it's still not enough for most people!

However...I'll admit it's not as simple as "there is a gay gene" but rather "genes"! Since we have not yet fully decrypted the human genome, any research could be considered false. However, research shows that identical twins, where one is gay and one is straight, there is a minor genetic diffrence!

Again..this means nothing without further research because there are minor diffrences between identical twins anyway (and just to point out..many of these diffrences CAN be traced back to enviromental influences..such as food source and lifestyle..i.e one fat twin and one skinny twin). That said,
