    Why So Serious to ansel12
    A Time in America! Hey history buff, America has been around 236 years. The world has been around for several thousand years. I would love to know your nationality for this, but it is not important.

    There was a time in America that blacks were "defined" as 2/3rds of a person and they could not be free. I wonder what your post would have looked like when they changed that.

    There was a time in America that blacks could not go to school, sit in the front of the bus, eat in a diner, drink out of a public water fountain ... all because they were "defined" as 2/3rds of a person. I guess your recollection or history studies have taught you that the homosexual/Islamic agenda came to the rescue. And now all people are a whole people.

    Women were not allowed to vote, and then the homosexual/Islamic agenda changed that.

    In the early 1900s when my family came here from Ireland signs were posted "No Irish Need Apply" because they were "defined" as dirty.

    What history have you studied. Our founding fathers [really Thomas Jefferson] had great vision. He was not perfect. He was one of the men that "defined" blacks as 2/3rds of a person, and he owned slaves. Tell me, was his definition correct? You would be well served to actually study some history. It would make for a better conversation.

    Give me a quick snapshot of what your post would have looked like when they "re-defined" blacks to be a whole person from 2/3rds. Just for the entertainment!

    ansel, my politics is to the right of Genghis Khan. I did not post anything behind your back. I included you in the post. I did not lie about anything. In my post I said we should make homos pay higher taxes and heteros should get tax breaks. You turned that around to say that I said that they currently pay different taxes. Inasmuch as you have informed us that you are very astute in history you have shown that you lack understanding of basic English. I have not lied any where in this post. I can assure you that Islam does not support homosexual marriage but you some how feel that there is a homosexual/Islamic agenda. Your understanding of Islam is closer to your understanding of basic English than it is to history, I guess. I have been trying to figure out what the “12” in “ansel12” is. I think I have a good guess. I typed this post a little slower than the others so that you can read it a little slower and understand it. This is supposed to be a simple discussion and you started responding like a democrat does when they cannot discuss with logic. You start making up stuff that people did not say and then you call them a liar when they tell you that they did not say it.

    How does getting homosexual churches and polygamous Islamic churches, and cults of every flavor, defining marriage, help keep the definition of marriage as one man, one woman?

    ansel, I know you have already explained that you are this big history buff and will not be interested in research some one else's nonsense, but could you please tell me who and when defined marriage as between a man and a woman?

    Good one Lil’ Jeremiah. Marriage has an age limit, as could a civil union. In fact I believe that in most states you have to 18 to enter into a contract. Besides, mentally ill perverts already have access to our children. It is called the public school system.

    Tex, ansel will never do any research on the subject. He has already said that marriage to be defined ... "That means a HIS common definition, not the definition of the Muslim church, or the FLDS church, or the definition of the liberal arm of the Episcopal church, or of the San Fran gay chapel church.

    This means that he wants to determine who creates the definition. It was like Al Gore and his sill azz recounts in Florida. How many recounts did he want? Only as many as it took for him to win. Ansel wants the entity of his choice to define marriage and every one should live with that definition.

    Here is your quote. Quit posting all the lies. If you think that you worded it badly then just say so, but quit denying you said it.

    "Homos, lesbos cannot get married. The should pay more in taxes. We heterosexuals should get tax breaks."

    Ansel, this DOES NOT say that homosexuals pay a different tax rate than heterosexuals. I said "should" not "do". Let me help you understand the difference between "should" and "do"

    should: Indicating a desirable or expected state: "by now students should be able to read".

    do: Perform, a current action.

    Why So Serious to avacado
    It’s interesting that you do admit that there is a tax penalty based on married or not. Do you believe that people should be penalized/taxed based on marital status?

    Do you think people should be taxed based on marital status? I kind of think that everyone should be taxed at one rate, and that should be a % of what you make. My tax return could be done on n index card with three lines ... how much did you make? ____ What is [blank %] ___________ send it in!

    Why So Serious to scottjewell
    Scott, if marriage is a "solemn affair which is a fusion of both church and state, altar and government. Tell me why they have the same rules on the way in but have different rules on the way out. Again, as I said earlier, if the government said that you could only marry once and that only with an annulment could the marriage be dissolved. If divorce was made to be much harder "by government" people would be arguing that the Government does not have the right to define marriage. Most people wear government like they wear socks .. whatever goes with MY outfit.

    Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

    If the government came out and said that marriage is forever and there can be no divorce there are a couple of people here in this post who would argue that government does not have the right define marriage. Theme: I want government to define marriage my way, or they have no business defining marriage. I am saying it is not governments business. If they would just follow the US Constitution and provide me with freedom and defense.

    in post 125 I used the word “should” which kind of indicates “that which is not”. I said homos “should pay more, and married people “should” get a tax break. That said, I always thought that homos and heteros were taxed the same. On board!

    Why So Serious to BobL

    Bobl, post 137 was not to you, I wrote your name in there in error. It was to Two. This post was meant as a discussion. I would say that the most activity came from you, Two, and me. I would say that if I gave each of you a piece of paper and I said write down the ten individual things that most threaten us [the Unites Sates] as a society, and I did the same. I would say that it would scare me if any of the three of us had civil unions in the top ten. I am sure that we would all have the democratic party as number one, which would encompass the civil union thing. But there are more important things that are bring us down. I am sure that we agree on more than we disagree on. That said, it was a nice way to blast through a beautiful afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Point taken, Two. I will never endorse a radical societal change as I should realize that society has hit the bull's eye and i will not mock people in a joking way because they hold thousands of years of beliefs and values dearly to their hearts.

    Hey Two, these radical Muslims have thousands of years of values that they hold dear. Are we going to accept those without arguing, discussing, changing, or mocking? Or would that be over the top?

    Ansel12, I never said ... "Homosexuals and heterosexuals are taxed differently." Why do you continue to imply that I said that? "Married" people and "non-married" people are taxed differently. And I do not know why it is weird or dishonest, but it is! One day you will understand that it is weird and dishonest and one day I might know why.

    Why So Serious to fwdude
    fwdude- The problem comes when we will be forced to recognize these "civil unions" which aren't marriage - just like homosexual activists are trying force recognition of counterfeit marriage.

    It is legislating same-sex "marriage" by lowest common denominator. Forget it.

    Dude, there was a time that blacks were owned and women could not vote. That stuff was legislated away. Do you realize that for thousands of years there were slaves and women were not allowed to vote. With the exception of those two facts, were we more civilized? You do not have to recognize anything.

    Here in Illinois Drew Peterson killed his THIRD wife and his FOURTH one went missing. If it was not for all the talk about gay marriage these last two marriages would have ended in a more civilized manner. See once the talk started moving toward gay marriage the world become uncivilized.
