    Show me someone who doesn't judge, and I'll show you someone who isn't alive.
    We all judge, yes. Some who disagree dispute jurisdiction and attack in mobs the site of adjudication.

      Back in the day having an extra muscle in their legs made them so special they were banned from playing ball with real Americans.

        "Explanation"? It's pretty clear you mean "Apology".

          Nope. It was never about gay marriage. Gay people have been getting married for thousands of years. It's same-sex marriage that is the big deal. Re-defining marriage has transformed society in a very big way, and not automatically necessarily for the better.
          It's always about the most recent "perversion" on deck whether it is inter-racial marriage, gay marriage, women voting, Blacks in the Big Leagues, abortion, Social Security, birth control. Luddites always say the same thing about the next thing.

          But just for drill, flesh out the detrimental transformation: what can you no longer do as a straight christian dude now that perverts can be married? I can hardly wait.

            I'm with you on this. The treasure hunt has faded and can't compete with the onslaught of perversion agendas.
            There's that word again. Good for you.

              If there is an ethical way to condemn as perverts entire swaths of people across broad periods of human history ...... Oh wait, .......

"Re-defining marriage" as a bond between two people who love each other sounds like you hate your spouse. Don't like gay marriage? Don't get gay married. Mind your own bedroom otherwise.
                  They should pass a Defense of Marital Misery Act just to make The Gays suffer for ruining the institution of marriage misery.

Since it's been scientifically proven that the human brain does not fully develop until 25- I say we ban all of these activities until then- including military service.
                    See how that plays out?
                    I don't know about the other stuff but girls can consent at 14 in the Slave States because the sooner she submits to her husband the sooner she'll grasp the perversion of feminism.

                      • For unhappy, angry bitter old white men, you can celebrate on the second Tuesday of every August at 3:17 AM. You'll be awake at that time anyway, worrying and raging that gay people and black people "get a whole month". This country was built and founded and grew to be an economic super power because of the labor of black people, who were discarded to the trash heap when it became illegal to whip and hang them. Disadvantaged groups need to feel pride to at least have hope of someday being treated fairly.

                        Before Biden kicked the sh** out of him by 7 million votes, we had a fat orange person in the White House who inherited all his wealth from his slum lord daddy, which should be $15 billion today at least based on normal rates of return of the S & P Index, but he managed to turn it into 2.5 billion, minus the 5 billion in corporate welfare taxpayers gave him for his 6 failed business enterprises and other forms of corporate welfare). That's a real world net worth of NEGATIVE 2.5 billion, down 17.5 billion from the aforementioned 15 billion if he had given his inheritence to a moderately competent money manager and never "worked" a day in his life.. Republicans - don't try to do the math. I don't want you to get hurt!

                        Afraid to fight for his country, his daddy got a doctor's note that said fatty had a sore foot. And yet when fatty was in the White House and Harriet Tubman, the most courageous woman in U.S. history, was being considered to be the face on the $20 dollar bill, fatty mocked her physical appearance. I have to admit though, fatty could have give Harriet some great tips on how to apply women's makeup. IMO (about the makeup tips). Everything else is fact.

                        • Thank you, Fennway. When the privilege of wealth and oligarchy is broken down into an accident of birth and the leverage of government corruption riding the wave of perverse populism we get what obtains today.

                          • Last saturday in June is parade day in most communities. I hope everyone will have a colorful individualist day and that even the crankiest posters here will bite a hot dog or four with relish.
