“These are pretty poor examples of open relationships. Communication is the key to any successful relationship, and the more so with open ones. Most of these folks don't seem to wish to communicate at all.”
“The Boy Scouts of America claim to be open to all boys of all religions. What you call 'sinful' is not considered such by every religion. So the leaders of the BSA are either liars about being welcoming to all beliefs, or they are infringing on some of their members' faiths.”
These animals are breed to be as uniform as possible so that any changes between the group receiving the drug and the control group can be reasonably attributed to the medicine being tested. After sufficient tests on animals, the researchers move on to human trials, but they need to start with a homogeneous group of subjects.
You cannot get that with inmates, or any other group of humans one might suggest. Our lives cannot be controlled for the way those of the animal subjects have been.”
“"... take care of any dependents, if any,' you know?" Morse addressed the Montevideo crowd. "If you look at that purpose, there’s nothing there about children..."
Not that marriage is only about children, though they are often part of the mix, but how can she say that the ruling talked about 'dependents' and in the same breath say there was no mention of children?
Do you think she's too ignorant to know what a common word like 'dependent' means?”

“Yes. Yes, she is too ignorant to know a word with all those letters in it.”
With all of the Internet available to her, Ms. Sieczkowski chose the humor site Cracked to 'research' the Bavarian Illuminati?”

“Cracked's articles are more info-tainment than satire like the Onion. When it comes to facts, they are at least as reliable as wikipedia. Where would you go researching the Illuminati, the Library of Congress?”
“Okay, so then all couples can have families. Thank you for figuring that out your own.

“Your not looking at the other view, yes anyone can have a family.
However it is not for me to understand I guess what the motivation is.
Can you at least see people struggle with the idea that you have come to accept.
You take for granted in a big way people can move immediately in any direction.
I have a reason for what I believe I never said you do not have the right to marry truth is I am not sure how it got to be illegal.
If I did not believe you did not have the right I would say it, but you have a free will and the liberty to pursue that.
I just always believed your anatomy male female determined preference and we decide what we want in relationships. ”
Jerry Sandusky is not gay, he is a pedophile. Can I leave you alone with an 8 year old girl without you raping her? Then you are not a pedophile. Neither is Carla Hale.
We're talking about a teacher who was not fired for sexual harassment. She was fired for the 'crime' of being a homosexual.There have been no charges of illegal acts, no claims of rape, no whispers of any wrongdoing of any kind. And yet she is fired.
Even through emotional memories of past days, you can surely acknowledge the unfairness of firing someone for no other reason than their being born differently.”

“Yes, if she was fired merely for her orientation, sure. I get angry I suppose, because really, in my experience among a half dozen or so gay men, who were still in the closet so to speak, I was sexually harassed period. I had thought a seminary to be the last place a man would be sexually harassed. What made it worse for me is that I didn't leave right away. I figured it couldn't go on; yet, it did, and worse; other seminarians who had been trying to he emotionally supportive, really just wanted sexual attention! What! ”
“Tell me again about how persecuted Christians are in America today.”

“Yeah, sure. I studied in a Catholic seminary for a number of years. How many times did gay seminarians sexually harass me and other straight guys? Gays are not the persecuted. Gays are the persecutors. Look at what Jerry Sandusky was doing to the boys at camp while he was at Penn State? If someone accuses a gay of sexual harassment, nothing happens. Straight guys have nothing to do with gays, and yet, as gays gain in power, they can harass away!”
“Okay. Obviously the comment is not being 'misinterpreted', and the only thing more shocking than the Representative's words is his continued defense of his comments.
But could someone please parse "factual tales of successful retreat in VT, Germany, and the bowels of Amsterdam" for me, please? Germany, I get, though which war he is referring is a matter of conjecture. There aren't actually many 'retreats' from Germany in modern times. But 'VT'? Vermont? Were there a lot of retreats from there? And the 'bowels of Amsterdam'? The Netherlands were certainly occupied during World War II, but I rather think that 'children and women and mothers' were just as much (not at all 'potential') victims as any 'solitary male'. So what in the world is he babbling about?
All in all, I think it's past time that Mr. Hansen retire and seek the services of a specialist in the mental difficulties of the aged.”
“Keep in mind that Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Suess) did create other works besides the children's books we know him for today.
He worked as a political cartoonist for awhile, and was with the U.S. Navy during World War II in the animation department. There's quite a few propaganda-style pieces out there if you search for them. Some of them are rather troubling in this more 'enlightened' era. And don't forget "The Seven Lady Godivas", which featured not one but a full seven naked sisters Godiva.
I certainly don't presume to speak for him post-humorously, but as far as I can tell from reading his works, I think Dr. Suess would have enjoyed at least some of these for their intended humor...”

“It's true - and a lot of his books had blatant political statements in them from everything from Hitler to full-scale nuclear war....”
