Examiner ^ | 9/19/12 | BRUCE BAKER

Posted on 09/19/2012 10:50:47 AM PDT by Uncle Slayton

The Clint Eastwood on gay marriage episode of Ellen DeGeneres' talk-show showed "Dirty Harry" again in the "raw." The actor-director shared his views on same-sex-marriage and his role with the Libertarian Party. In the wake of the RNC, viewers got an even closer glimpse at the Hollywood legend.

So? He is wrong just like Ellen.

Just because someone is right about needing to fire Obamugabe doesn’t make them right on social issues.

Exactly. This shouldn't surprise anyone, though.

Before I decide whether or not to vote against him, remind me again what he is running for?

According to the article Clint said he just doesn’t care. Is it quite certain this Ellen person feels the same?

Yawn. How is this surprising? Eastwood was right about Obama being a lousy president. He’s dead wrong about sodomite “marriage” being the equivalent of actual marriage.

Good answer. I couldn’t care less and am sick of hearing about it.

Yeah, I’m wearing my flameproof dungarees, but I won’t respond to the flamers anyway. It’s just not worth it.

I'm not interested in gay marriage. About 4% of the population is gay, and my gay friends tell me that most gays don't want the imprimatur of what was originally a religious sacrament anyway.

I've also conversed with Clint Eastwood so I'm prejudiced. He’a a good guy in my opinion, and I'm sure we agree on a lot of things, including the America dream of freedom through free enterprise.

I would have to agree...

I really don’t care about gay marriage, isn’t an issue for me, government shouldn’t even have a hand in this at all, marriage isn’t a government entitlement.

If gays get married it doesn’t infringe on your rights, it places no burden on you other than the burden of non-interference (meaning you only have to ignore it).

Most here may disagree with gay marriage, and you’re free to do that as others are free to agree with it, but your disagreement is based on religious views, and religion is something that, for most, is a personal matter.

You can not sit and complain when Muslims want to push Sharia law on us, yet happily cheer when Catholics/Christians want to push their beliefs on all, I find it hypocritical in a monumental fashion.

Using the force of government to make others act as you want them to makes you no better than a liberal, you can not fight against government intervention and encroachment, then turn around and cheer that same intervention and encroachment because you agree with it.

Sorry, freedom isn’t something you can give and take based on a political whim, if you truly believe in freedom then you believe all people should be able to perform any peaceful act as long as that act does not infringe on the rights of another or place a burden on another member of society.

You are free to do as you choose.

You can’t call yourself freedom loving if you believe in limiting the freedoms of others because you disagree with those actions.

Well, if Eastwood were actually running for some office, his degenerate views on homo-marriage would mean more to me. It would indeed cause me to withhold a vote for him. But since he’s not running, it’s a rather mood point.

Clint Eastwood has something like seven children with five different women, so it's unsurprising Eastwood doesn't care about marriage — traditional marriage or “gay marriage”.

That is the libertarian mindset. Anything goes. Ron Paul voted for legalizing sodomy in the Armed Forces. Eastwood would have done the same thing. All libertarians act like idiots. “Leave me alone, I don’t care, stay out of my life, if I want to marry my brother or sister, or dog or cat, it’s my own business, just leave me alone”. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

I’m not interested in being forced to “celebrate” sodomy; and I don’t intend to do so. I’m not stopping them from doing what they want. - Decided if they wanted to be filthy, let them be filthy still (unbothered). - I do have a problem paying fines and taxes in order to pay for some “transgendered” person’s surgeries, hormone treatments and psychiatric “therapy” to the tune of thousands of dollars. This is stupid. I have to be what I is and make peace with it; less complicated that way and okay by me. The rest of it for the most part, I can ignore. If Fred kisses George, I’ll turn my head and ignore their bad manners. Public displays of affection are tiresome anyway.

There has been a whole lot of “gay chatter” on FR lately. The whole deal about going into a dead guy’s “Ambassador Stevens” background and discussing his gayness and now this.

This whole thing is kinda gay.

I agree with regards to having a problem paying for sex changes and treatments, again that falls into the “no burden on society” portion of my statement.

Interesting take on things. I didn't think that it was acceptable to promote homosexual marriage here, but I can't find a link to that opinion.

Sorry, you’re really quite far off, and it always seems that one person that jumps out and tries to make an illogical argument.

Libertarians aren’t for anything goes, but we are for freedom whether you agree with those actions or not, free to do as we choose as long as our actions do not place a burden on anyone or infringe on their rights.

I’m straight, married to a women, yet gay marriages doesn’t bother me, I can’t sit and say I want more freedom and tell the government to stop infringing on my rights then turn around and tell the government to stomp all over another person’s rights because I don’t agree with how they live their lives.

I find those that have no issue with stomping all over the rights of others because they don’t agree with their choices no better than any other nanny state loving liberal.

I don’t believe Clint favors gays in the military. He has enormous respect for anyone in uniform and would never impose such a disruptive life style on them. He’s not a conservative and he’s not a Christian. He’s a Republican actor and he deserves enormous credit for standing up against Obama during the RNC.

There is a reason why libertarians can’t get elected to any national office. They are too much like liberals and most of the country is center right. You can go to almost any libertarian website and you see constant putdowns of Romney and Ryan and anything to do with republicans and hardly any putdowns or criticisms of Obama and his big government socialists.

You can bet your bottom dollar that Dick Cheney’s REAL VIEWS on homo marriage are not what he now professes. He is trying to keep peace with his lesbian daughter. Deep down there is no way this 75 year old man started thinking it was normal for two women or two men to get “married”. He would be laughed out of Wyoming.

He’s a libertarian which means he is for gay marriage. He is for open borders. He is for abortion on demand. Libertarians, according to their website are for these and many other non conservative ideas.

This is why I agree that libertarians are left of liberals. They both would bring this country straight to hell.

The common ground between libertarians and the Right is a desire for freedom - which libertarians would use not as adults do, but as children do.

The common ground between libertarians and Leftists is nihilism - which libertarians would wield to destroy the restraints of adulthood so they can behave like children.

I don’t have any doubts that he means it, many republicans have little to zero interest in such things.

I didn’t know that 10 or 15 years ago, but spending so much time on the internet with “fiscal conservatives” and “libertarians”, has opened my eyes, and not in a good way, so I can see you having your opinion on his sincerity, but mine is different.

The republican party just nominated a radical homosexualist, as it’s presidential candidate, Cheney is a solid, Romney type republican.

You can not sit and complain when Muslims want to push Sharia law on us, yet happily cheer when Catholics/ Christians want to push their beliefs on all, I find it hypocritical in a monumental fashion.

So, in your same-sex dimension of eternal victimhood, Muslims who stone women, cut off their clitoris, burn schools and kill school teachers who dare to teach girls to read and write, forbid women to drive, forbid women to show their face in public, incarcerate, mutilate, and stone women who appear in public without a male relatives escort, who behead women in the public square for adultery, who chain little boys to the floor in sura schools while they teach them to hate Israel and hate America and preach death to the Great Satan of Western civilization, who teach them that killing their sisters and daughters is the definition of honor, who teach them that strapping on explosives and blowing themselves up with Jews is freedom, who raped and killed an ambassador and raped female journalists in the city streets to the cheering and the delight of Muslim mobs, who threw candy and told people to celebrate when 3000 people died in flames on September 11, is in your sphincter-focused mind to be weighed on the same scale with the Bible's law that burying your phallus in the fecal material of your anal companion is an unnatural and unsanctified union, that this makes the Body of Christ a monster on the same scale as these savages that have soaked the world with blood and shouted "Allah Akbar" over the screams of millions of their victims, then by GOD wash the dust of America off your feet, and go to the head mullah of the city of Qom and ask him to celebrate and legitimize your same sex union, and see what the hell, I repeat hell, you get.

Deep breath.

I predict your remaining time here will be less than the life span of the Luna butterfly, so before you flutter off, I pray God replaces the missing circuitry in your head, before Satan decides your usefulness is over and pulls your plug. You know Satan. That guy who said that you were supposed to be his megaphone in this place.

Consider the state of your soul...Beelzebub might take a shine to your glutes and decide he wants you downstairs tomorrow. Between each heartbeat, there's a period of silence, and you never know, moment to moment, just how long that period of silence is going to be, except that the last one will be a doozy.

This is equal in atrocity to followers of Christ refusing to acknowledge two men reaming each other's colons as being a "man and wife", according to the sodomite left.

1st: Actually, they ("sodomite left") never bring up these atrocities much less, female genital mutilation, goat f'n, homosexual rape of young boys, etc.

The "sodomite left" can't hold a candle to the depravity of the mohammedans.

2nd: Your homepage says:"I never know what to put on these things." I call BS. Your posting skills tell me clearly that you indeed know what to post. So Tuanedge, let us all in on who and what you are. That is a honest request.

I have no problem with civil unions. A legal concept that should bestow the same rights and/or benefits that is conferred on a married couple.

But I am adamantly opposed to using the word "marriage" because it has a definitive etymology definition that is "union of a man and a woman".

My original post you commented on was in response to a “man” who said that the oppression of the Christian Church against homosexuals was comparable to the oppression of sharia law and that is what I was alluding to. I rejected his premise, and I’m sorry that you missed this point.

If you think it’s your business to know something about me personally, you might try asking me something specific. I may, or may not answer you.

Given your present puffed up resident interrogator vibe, odds are favoring “not”.

Have a pleasant morning.
