“Demonic” is becoming a seemingly accurate term with which to describe all these people Obama is attempting to put into places of power.

You're absolutely right and I'm going to incorporate that into my new tagline. See below.

She has a totalitarian mindset, closer to Pol Pot than to Stalin.

They can't go after everyone who disagrees with them, but they might try to ruin selected individuals for expressing "intolerable" beliefs in order to intimidate others (like that "human rights" agency in Canada does).

Eleanor Roosevelt said that Communists were just liberals in a hurry. These people are not content with the slow degradation of society and morality accomplished by the schools and the media, but want to hurry up the process--they are degenerates in a hurry.

Well I believe that we shiould be attacking her for hate speech. Her position is hate speech against the 1st amendment. She needs an avalanche of constitutionalist attacks.

Did you ever notice how your dog will cock its head to one side when you make a funny noise in front of it as if to say, “What are you talking about?”

That’s probably what I looked like after I read this article. It’s unbelievable that this person is even getting any kind of consideration. This is way beyond the pale.

Ugh, I know I’m going to regret it but I can’t help myself (and this isn’t aimed at you - I see this mistake all the time by other readers).

I realize what you meant to say is “homosexuality is immoral” but the double whammy of using two of the words incorrectly brought out the grammar police in me. So here we go ...

You said “sodomy is unnatural”.

1. Sodomy includes oral sex between married husband and wife. I’m going to guess that virtually all married couples have, at one time or another, engaged in it. They aren’t going to hell for this as part of a monogamous, til-death-do-us-part relationship. Thus, I’m willing to bet a great deal of money that all heterosexual citizens (especially all heterosexual men) are sodomites. Open the dictionary. That’s what the word means.

2. It occurs IN NATURE, therefore it is, by definition NATURAL. Murder is natural (it is also immoral). Lying is natural (it is also unethical). The word “natural” is not a synonym that can be interchanged with other words indicating perceived acceptability or morality.

I see people making this mistake all the time on here. The correct phrase is “homosexuality is immoral” or “homosexuality is a sin”. If you say “sodomite lifestyle” or “unnatural” it’s no different than inner-city Ebonics where the meaning of words is disregarded. It’s as if someone insisted the color of the sun is green. Words have specific meanings. The meanings of those words are found in the dictionary. (The literal translation of what you wrote could just as likely have read, “Oral sex between males and females of the human race does not occur in nature.”)

Yeah, I realize it’s obnoxious to say this but I’ve seen this error 5,001 times on the site. It’s like someone saying 2+2=5. At some point, you just can’t take it anymore.

*Duck and cover*

“where the meaning of words is disregarded.” - that should have read “are disregarded”. I hit post thinking that it would preview it again didn’t uncheck the “I have already previewed or do not wish to preview this composition” box. Nothing like a verb tense error in a post on grammar. I’m going to go have a cup of coffee and get off the blogs. I can’t focus today.

It gets worse and worse and worse. Will they want us all to get lobotomies?

In other words, the immoral behavior of two percent of the population is more important than the religious beliefs of the majority.

If one happens to like the taste of feces, and wants to bring a lunchbox full and eat it in the company lunchroom, the company must not discriminate against this "identity liberty".

That's what this idiot is saying.

However, a liberty we all have but has been severely curtailed is "freedom of association". We should be free to associate with and do business with whomever we please.

And that right trumps the right of the turd-eater to be employed.

The belief that affects them most adversely of all is the belief that homosexuality is good and that they should go on in their sinful ways. Without true repentance they will suffer eternal damnation. It is cruel to not warn them and help them to escape their sinful ways.

That being said all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. All must repent of rebellious way or perish forever in the lake of fire. By God's grace there is a way out by accepting that Jesus Christ died on the cross, shedding his blood for the forgiveness of our sins. He can forgive and deliver us from our sins.

I didn’t used to harbor such “adverse” opinions, but all this *in-your-face* activism has pushed it on me. Their radical agenda is worse than their actual acts. Stop trying to push it on me.

Feldblum does recognize that elements of the homosexual agenda may infringe on Americans’ religious liberties. However, Feldblum argues that society should “come down on the side” of homosexual equality at the expense of religious liberty. Because the conflict between the two is “irreconcilable,” religious liberty -- which she also calls "belief liberty" -- must be placed second to the “identity liberty” of homosexuals.

Sorry, the U.S. Constitution enumerate religious (Christian) liberty specifically; homosexual perversion appears nowhere in the Constitution.
