commented on Debora Barr Escaped the Lesbian Lifestyle
Look, this seems like a tragic story of someone who has had her community rob her of a happy and fulfilling relationship. But there's no need to mock anyone based on her hair or physical appearance in general.

Whatever. This kid was a college student at a politically moderate, religiously arch-conservative college in my home town. I am so proud of both these kids right now . And, even better, Santorum thought he was stopping somewhere he'd have total support, and these kids were too smart and empathetic to let that happen.

Some of my favorite scripture verses. Turns out there's just as strong a case for Jesus as anarchocommunist as there is for ethereal defender of Divine Law.
@13, love the naked self-serving nature of that revision of the parable. Do we see Jesus making excuses for the rich? Or, for that matter, most of the Israelite prophets? Not so much.

Thanks, Dan...anything to keep that nut job from ruining the good things in Kansas (sure there are good things in Kansas! Lawrence! Wheat! Bison! Amelia Earhart's birthplace!) scores one for justice!
