Hey Dan, could you please consolidate all these youth pastor watches at one URL; it would be a really helpful rebuttal to bullshit like this: http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/…

When backed into a corner, "traditionalists" will claim that Jesus fulfilled all the ritual and ceremonial OT law with his sacrifice on the cross, but the "moral" commands are still in effect. They either sidestep the fact that the inclusion of homosexuality on the list of "moral" laws is completely arbitrary, or they try to say that sexual strictures of all kinds are moral and still in effect. You never see them fretting about menstruating women in public, non-virgin women getting married, or rape survivors being allowed to live their lives as something other than the permanent sexual property of their rapists. I guess Jesus must have "fulfilled" the "don't have sex with your wife when she's on the rag" commandment, somehow.

And before anyone jumps to correct me, I did not accidentally misspell "moron," I intended to call her a mojón.

This is an argument against blind marriage, not gay marriage. What an ignorant mojon, she is...

I dunno, Dan. Wouldn't Occam's razor dictate that PORN's potential date is just using a porn star's picture?

@Thanks for all your hard work STATE, please let us know what you find about statutory determinations. In the meantime, I've signed your petition and am promoting it on my Facebook page.

It's so tragic. Don't get me wrong, I'm very relieved the Supreme Court reached the right result on DOMA yesterday. On the other hand, The Supreme Court can make any ruling it likes, but there can be no remedy for the contempt Shepherd's person and life were held in by his killers. No vindication of the rights and dignity of LGBT people will ever give that beautiful young man the chance he so amply deserved and was so unjustly denied at living a happy life of loving someone and being loved in return, or to even know that finally, his government would deem him worthy of that opportunity. For me, he stands in for the generations of LGBT people who have lived and died without ever having that chance, because their loves, dreams, and sometimes even their very lives were held as less than worthless by a pathologically narcissistic, sanctimonious, and hypocritical society. As a liberal Christian, I am pretty dubious of the existence (and certainly the justice ) of hell, but when I think of the preciousness of the life these murderers so thoughtlessly destroyed, and all the countless loves and lives destroyed for the sake of the vain "piety" of the privileged, it makes a vindictive and decidedly unChristian part of me wish there were an especially hot place there for them.

Not to be a negative Nancy, but aren't at least some Federal agencies compelled to look to the state of residence by statute? If so, it would take an act of congress to change those agencies and make federal benefits consistent across state lines...
May 10, 2013 esperando commented on SL Letter of the Day: I'm Out.
I'd say as someone (a man) who can't be the target of that word, it's really not my call to decide whether it's become acceptable, nor is it Priapism's. Maybe he should ask some of his "lady classmates," and guage their reactions, instead of spinning a lot of pretentious rationalizations for his behaviour.

Sorry Dan, I must be missing some context here. Who is this dude? Is he one of the Jason Collins haters in the msm?
