Utah conservative launches hunger strike to protest marriage equality -- says he will sacrifice his own life if gays are treated equally

    It seems like things may have reached a whole new level of crazy in Utah.

    Trestin Meacham, a 35-year-old Utah man, is allegedly refusing to eat anything until the state nullifies its recent decision to allow same-sex couples to get married.

    At the time the above video was released, Meacham had reportedly gone 12 days without food -- surviving only on water and an occasional vitamin -- and has lost 25 pounds.

    “I cannot stand by and do nothing while this evil takes root in my home," the 35-year-old reportedly wrote on his blog. "Some things in life are worth sacrificing one’s health and even life if necessary. I am but a man, and do not have the money and power to make any noticeable influence in our corrupt system. Nevertheless, I can do something that people in power cannot ignore."

    Meacham claims he will fast until Utah decides to nullify the court's decision -- nullification being a theory that the states have authority in all matters, not the federal government. It is a theory that has reportedly been used previously in an attempt to prevent integration in the public school system in the 1950s.

    the suffering of death on account of adherence to [a] faith, or to any cause;
    affliction, torment, torture.


    Character flaws: The seven chief features of ego
    http://personalityspirituality.net/articles/the-michael-teachings/chief-features/


    The seven chief features

    In the Michael teachings there are seven types of chief feature (character flaw / ego defence / personality defect / stumbling block, whatever you prefer).

    Here they are listed from the most introverted to the most extroverted:
    1.Self-Deprecation (belittling/diminishing/undervaluing oneself)
    2.Self-Destruction (sabotaging/punishing/harming oneself)
    3.Martyrdom (reacting as if persecuted/victimised/oppressed)
    4.Stubbornness (resisting change in one’s life)
    5.Greed (selfish overindulgence, over-consumption)
    6.Arrogance (inflating/exalting/overvaluing oneself)
    7.Impatience (reacting as though being sabotaged/obstructed)

    All chief features are based in fear, and fear is the driving force behind all the negative poles of the overleaves, and the cosmos for that matter.

    I prefer that breeder terminology not be used for homosexuality. Religiously, I hope churches will have ceremonies of togetherness for homosexuality, not using the breeder terminology of marriage. Civil union was a term that was fine with me. We know when civil unions began to fail: when firms like UPS New Jersey failed to recognize them and there was no enforcement. So, politically, the gay powers that be said, okay, then, we're OBLIGATED to go for the only word YOU DO UNDERSTAND: MARRIAGE. I get that. Trestin: forgive.

    Now, what about bisexuals? I understand bisexuality like I understand Ancient Athens, Renaissance Italy, mother and a father, sister and a brother, aunts and uncles, cousin et cousine (male and female cousin). Not enough people come out bisexual. Only the people on the gay end of the breeder-to-homosexual scale.

    I put no spirit behind gay marriage because spiritually, I like the breeder Trinity of Father, Mother, and Child. Gay Marriage, biologically, does not give us this icon of the continuity of the human race. It's an anthropological watering down to call homosexual unions marriage. Men have no breast-feeding parent and child icon for the continuity of the human race as the Mother and Child to Pieta icons. It's NOT anthropologically EQUAL. It is only a political power play of necessity for dignity.

    So... you two are going to lump roughly half the Earth's population into insane?

    Right. That certainly doesn't show blind hatred for things you disagree with on no basis in reality, does it?

    I love how the Left think they're the morally superior ones, yet they're the only ones who try and insult others and insinuate other people's supposed stupidity icon_razz.gif

    Conservatism is a symptom of limited intellectual ability, signified by fear of the new and of outsiders, a retreat into tradition and tribal loyalty, and an unsophisticated disgust at sexual mores that deviate even slightly from the norm. Put bluntly, stupidity correlates with insecurity, hatred, pessimism and fear, while intelligence manifests as confidence, optimism, trust and more Liberal social views. This isn't just my opinion; there are studies that prove this to be the case.

    If this lunatic in Utah wants to starve himself to death over a recent court decision ordering gay marriage, than that is perfectly fine by me. One less ignorant homophobe in this world.

    Since he's already run for office and lost, I'm guessing this "hunger strike" is a self-promoting publicity stunt to jump-start his career as professional conservative douche. Being a hateful bigot can be a ticket to fame in Republican circles -- the big prize is a job with Fox News. It worked for Sarah Palin, who is still cashing those checks.

    The hunger strike also fits in perfectly with the ongoing Republican theme of victim-hood. As in, "I'm a victim because someone at Target said 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas.' icon_rolleyes.gif

    So now that he's chosen to starve himself, he's a "victim" and we're all supposed to feel sorry for him.
    Another conservative hero! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    I disagree. When one studies Mundane Astrology, one realizes there are time periods of expansion and contraction. Conservatism relates to the latter.

    One cycle that may be worthwhile looking into is

    From Saturn Conjunct Neptune

    To Saturn Opposite Neptune

    When we look for absolute truths, we can't call the truths of expansion or contraction truths. It's what includes both or transcends that, which is true.

    The movie Gandhi taught me not to disrespect this guy's actions.

    It's not something I would do. I'm trying to get my resolve up to buy a Vitamix and drink 12 oz of Kale and Peach per week. Anyone wants to join me? I think I'm potassium deficient.

    Gay marriage is DISTURBING to me, to him and to other people. I don't like politics corrupting science. Anthropologically, gay marriage, categorically, is not the same thing as heterosexual marriage. I have a set way of looking at the world. My way of looking at the world encourages bisexuality, homosexuality, and forever relationships, but to LABEL it with a heterosexual label is one of the things that turns me off about it.

    The life demands and the life lessons are different between the two types of unions.
