“The death penalty is wrong! What if the falsely accused kid in this story had gotten the “death penalty” his vigilante judges had decreed appropriate?

“The "other thing" to do with a spouse is normal sexual intercourse the way it's been done for thousands of years. Just saying, it seems to work best for many reasons.

the masturbation suggestion refers to what to encourage among young, singles, who are still going to "hook up" no matter what they're told. If masturbation were encouraged among the youth, instead of abstinence, there wouldn't be such a stigma about the practice, and young singles then might more often engage in mutual masturbation, which then avoids not only disease, but the burden of pregnancy as well.”

“Like oral sex hasn't been done for thousands of years too! Telling people how to have sex is like telling people which hand to wipe with when using the bathroom!”

“The religious ban on sodomy (oral and anal sex) isn’t about homosexuality, as these sexual practices are equally banned to heterosexual couples. It’s about disease. Early on it was discovered that sodomitic practices conceived and spread horrific (sexually transmitted) diseases. Diseases that could wipe out the entire clan in a season. Diseases that made people terribly miserable before snuffing them out completely. Sodomy, whatever else it was, wasn’t a good idea. Even with all our present-day science and technology, that still seems to be the case. Whether this edict comes from God, as some believe, or “nature” as an atheist might put it, is irrelevant. The real question is what to do about it. In the old days, couples caught engaging in sodomy would be put to death. Most often by stoning. In this enlightened age, I would like to suggest a different approach. Instead of frowning on masturbation, encourage it.

“The real question is what to do about it? Nothing. Are we going to have the sex police peeking into people's bedrooms to see what they're doing? Masturbation is is fine when solo, of course, but with your partner/spouse, you want to so other things.”

“You can’t see God, but
you can see what’s going on around God. It is said that faith is belief in
things unseen. I don’t have faith. I have knowledge. One doesn’t “see” the
supernatural. One experiences it. I’ve had supernatural experiences all my
life. Since I was a child. As a child, I didn’t know or understand what was
happening. When I grew to adulthood, looking back, I began to comprehend the
various times God had intervened in my life to save me. Why me and not the kid
down the block? I don’t know. What I do know is that God rarely intervenes in
earthly affairs, and when he does it is for reasons that are clearly his own.

Incidentally, faith doesn’t
absolve a person from dealing with reality, but offers comfort in a time of
trouble. You may find my novel, “Cloud Drops” of interest. Inspired by real
events, I expressed it through the fantasy genre, as no one would believe the
reality! If interested, you can acquire a used copy through Amazon virtually
for free.”

“Even if all the gun laws currently proposed were passed tomorrow, the intended effect of reducing or eliminating suicide attacks wouldn’t kick-in for at least another ten or twenty years, if then. Under the circumstances maybe Conceal-and-Carry laws might be a good idea. The sane far outnumber the loonies. A civilian armed with a 9mm semi-automatic and a 13-round clip with one in his pocket for back-up, and his heart into stopping a suicidal madman, is likely to. Maybe after only 1 dead instead of 27. Will there be mishaps and stupid mistakes that cause unintended damage and perhaps even an occasional death? Of course. But that is preferable to 27 dead. Every time.

Furthermore, once defeating these Suicide Attackers becomes routine, a mere one time one-liner blip on the nightly news, no sensationalism, no infamy, no glory, even a madman loses his primary motive, and the suicide attack as a means to infamy will, over time, die out.”

“Black men can use the “N” word but white men can’t. Gay men can use the “F**” expression but straight men better not. There was a recent dust-up over a man promoting a book that included the “F**” word. His book was banned by Facebook. The ban was lifted when it was discovered the man was gay.

The point is, only “special” people can use certain words. The rest of us are affectively banned from freely expressing ourselves. Any disagreement with a black or gay man may be deemed “hate speech” and censored.

This is America today—their idea of free speech. Haven’t any of you read William L. Shirer’s “The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich”? This is Hitler’s idea of free speech. Only those with superior ideas should be freely allowed to express themselves. After all, superior ideas, and the superior people who speak them, are all the free speech we need.

Hitler couldn’t agree more. Except he would kill black men and gays, not to mention Jews, and only straight white men would be considered superior enough to freely speak. Hitlerism is a form of spirit. Spirit can change form. It makes one wonder: Will the next Hitler be black and gay this time around? That’s a funny thought, isn’t it?

Stick with the constitution’s concept and guarantees of free speech, even if it offends gays, blacks, neo-Nazis, and the anti-American pseudo-Christians among us.”

“The right wing talking heads are the biggest proof that free speech is alive and well.

Bill O Rielly, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, etc. These guys spend EVERY DAY slamming Obama and the left. And not only do they get away with it---they make millions of dollars while doing it. They have hit radio shows, hit tv shows, top selling books...yet they love to claim they are being "silenced." Funny isn't it? To claim that you are being silenced...and to make that claim to millions of people who are listening to you. LOL!
I'd like to see a Syrian do what Rush Limbaugh does. I'd love to see a Syrian go on the air and slam his president day after day. Near less get paid millions for doing it.

Ironically, these right wing talking heads will only be proved right...when we can no longer hear them.”
