    Topics like this one should be posted in the News and Politics forum. Sure, not many people will read it if you post it there compared to the All Things Gay forum, but we all have abided by this restriction in an effort to keep the All Things Gay forum free of partisan bickering.

    LMAO!!! Coming from the most partisan gay hater on this site that's pretty funny. What's the matter, you run out of nonstop anti-Obama, anti-gay propaganda to post for the moment? icon_rolleyes.gif

    In other words.....you'd prefer to see it hidden away where no one can see it. icon_rolleyes.gif

    BINGO!

    Oh, and BTW, I created both the "News & Politics" and the "Gay News & Events" forums myself, with the agreement of the former RJ owner/admin. They previously were a single forum under a different name.

    I just love when when SB tries to lecture others on the use of the forums, in order to divert & derail any criticism of anti-gay bigots like those Texas Republicans that he admires so much. Well, guess what: anti-gay bigots CAN be mentioned in the "All Things Gay" forum, with or without southbeach's permission.

    Just so we all know the evil behind cake icon_evil.gif


    Let them eat cake
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_them_eat_cake

    Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was made from dough enriched with butter and eggs, making it more expensive than bread, the quote reflected the princess's disregard for the peasants.

    1450: The first major witch hunts began in many western European countries. The Roman Catholic Church created an imaginary evil religion, using stereotypes that had circulated since pre-Christian times. They said that Pagans who worshiped Diana and other Gods and Goddesses were evil Witches who kidnapped babies, killed and ate their victims, sold their soul to Satan, were in league with demons, flew through the air, met in the middle of the night, caused male impotence and infertility, caused male genitals to disappear, etc. Historians have speculated that this religiously inspired genocide was motivated by a desire by the Church to attain a complete religious monopoly, or was "a tool of repression, a form of reining-in deviant behavior, a backlash against women, or a tool of the common people to name scapegoats for spoiled crops, dead livestock or the death of babies and children." Walter Stephens, a professor of Italian studies at Johns Hopkins University, proposes a new theory: "I think Witches were a scapegoat for God." 3 Religious leaders felt that they had to retain the concepts of both an omnipotent and an all-loving deity. Thus, they had to invent Witches and demons in order to explain the existence of evil in the world. This debate, about how an all-good and all-powerful God can coexist in the world with evil is now called Theodicy. Debate continues to the present day.

    Yes, it makes HUGE difference because no one can scroll past it or ignore it. Gosh, I apologize all over the place in dust and ashes for having offended you and the Order of Things. My hand is still smarting from the slap on the wrist.

    BTW - you're on the top of my Ignore list - only got this from reading replies - and I am now even clearer why I placed you there.

    This is ridiculous. Photo-ops of a side that's clearly losing and clearly on the wrong moral side of history?

    These people are so off-trend they'd HAVE TO ACTUALLY BELIEVE in their cause to pose for pictures that will go down in history books like George Wallace's "Segregation now, Segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!"

    Careful people, these people are not just doing this for political points--as a wedge issue--they ACTUALLY believe they're being "discriminated against" as they so ignorantly state in the piece. And seeking to invalidate the marriage of a dying lesbian couple? My goodness. Wallaces, all of them.

    I wonder if any of the Log Cabin Republicans in Texas joined in the festivities. Hell, they likely voted for those lawmakers, might as well celebrate with them.
