Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle... →
the-last-crusade: Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie. […] I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a...

Early on, right after the bombings this week, I read an article about how the police had a Middle Eastern suspect (or “person of interest”) - they tore his dorm room apart and interrogated his roommate for 4 or 5 hours or something - all because he was Middle Eastern and they saw him “running from the scene” (because no one else was?). Anyway, I can’t find that...

as a token of my apology for hardly posting anything lately. I’ve been living in the Middle Ages (read: cancelled my internet) and telling myself that it’s because I’m trying to be cool and counter-cultural, but really it’s because I don’t want to pay for it when I’m moving in like 2 months anyway.

fromonesurvivortoanother: you should always be wary of people who, when asked about a moral issue, immediately reply with “it’s okay because it’s legal” or “it’s not okay because it’s illegal”. This is exactly why I think it’s a problem when Government over-legislates. If it too closely tries to resemble the line between right and wrong, then people begin to mistake the line of legality...

Melvin cited an MSNBC poll that appeared to show that a majority of Americans are prochoice. “70% of those who were polled now say that they...
badwolfcomplex: No wonder no one can agree on what marriage is. Take this quote: “If there is such a thing as marriage, it takes place long before the ceremony: in a car on the way to the airport; or as a gray bedroom fills with dawn, one lover watching the other; or as two strangers stand together in the rain with no bus in sight, arms weighed down with shopping bags. You don’t know then....

Eight Reasons Not to Use Graphic Abortion Images... →
sweetandlovelygirl7: “All the same, bloody and shocking images have their place. Pro-life activists are right when they say abortion depends on silence and darkness, and that truth must be exposed. Too many people who are pro-choice because they somehow still don’t know what fetuses actually look like, or what happens to them when they are aborted— or because they’ve simply slipped into a...

Only a few casualties. 3) Connecticut....
Liberals: If you don't like abortions then don't have one!
Liberals: I don't like guns. So no one should have one!
*EDIT: Before I get a truckload of hatemail, let me just say that I realize these issues are different and the logic here is flawed. I'd never use this argument in a debate. That doesn't make it not funny.
