“Haha... "skinny-dipper" and "junket" used in the same sentence. LOL.
In Kevin's case, maybe it should have been "junkette".”

“My sister watched I Know What You Did Last Summer (rated R), I think when she was between 14 and 16. She had nightmares for weeks. I'm not sure how she was able to get her hands on the movie (definitely not approved by my parents). My parents of course had to deal with the "fallout" of her waking up in terror, crying, etc.”

“"Gee, I don't know - I saw R-rated movies when I was growing up and I turned out just fine."

Oh, really? Sorry, but I don't trust the self-assessed/self-professed, "I turned out just fine" declaration of someone who watched R-rated movies as a prepubescent child. I'd want to hear/see confirmation from a trusted, objective third party and/or first-hand observation of what the subject considers "fine" or "normal" before agreeing that the subject is indeed "fine".

In your situation, saying you're fine is a bit like the story of the eagle that grew up around chickens, learning to peck the ground to forage for his food. Perhaps he's relatively "healthy", but he is most certainly not "fine", and he doesn't know it.”

“'And had this not happened, I doubt anyone would have labeled this mother's choice as "bad".'

That depends on who you are including in "anyone". You're right that without the mindless mayhem that occurred, the majority of Americans would not have labeled the mother's choice as "bad", but only because her choice alone would never have made national (let alone local) headlines. I believe that her poor choice would have raised a few (perhaps many) eyebrows among fellow movie-goers.”

“I'm no medical or mental health professional, but it is only in the relatively recent past that the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association (1973 and 1975, respectively) declassified homosexuality as disorders. Previously, both organizations considered homosexuality to be mental disorders. The World Health Organization classified homosexuality as a disorder as recently as 1990. So it can be said that your view that homosexuality is not dysfunctional is merely opinion.”

“Or it could be said that the obvious truth finally came to be told, much as slavery was once abolished and women gained the right to vote. History is not always on the right side. Step on into the 21st century. It's enlightening here!”

“Left-handedness used to be considered an abberation, and even evil. Things change. We learn, and we progress. Or at least some of us do.”

“In case you missed that detail, Mark 12:29-31 is quoting Jesus. His mental acuity is second to no other human, but he was certainly broken-hearted over how humanity had forsaken God.”

“You're right, it doesn't matter what I believe about homosexuality. But God through scripture (and nature) makes it clear that homosexuality is an aberration of His design and is therefore sinful.

We may live in a democracy, but we're ultimately responsible in a theocracy where neither minorities or majorities rule or have voting privileges. If God calls homosexuality sin, then sin it is.”

“I don't believe in your god, so his rules don't apply to me. Period.

If you don't like homosexuality or same-sex marriage, then refrain from having sex with or marrying someone of your same gender, and leave the rest of us alone.”

“"Oscar can be applauded for demonstrating once again that disabled people do not want to be kept separate from the activities and lifestyle abled people enjoy. And that is a great statement to make."

I'll second that!

As for not training with human legs, what do you think Oscar's upper legs are? Feline, amphibian, avian or perhaps alien?
From the little I've studied this story, I tend to believe that Oscar's "blades" at best level the playing field and possibly leave him slightly disadvantaged. His story is inspiring and is a good illustration of how far some determined grit (chutzpah) can take you.”
