    Do you expect any less when you oppose a popular opinion? I disagree with you. But of you believe that the bachelor should be canceled and Vegas wedding chapels should be taken down...I suppose I can see your view.

    I see the blatant selfishness and narcissism of our society as the factor destroying us. We have crappy parents, and the new generations of "Pinterest parents" scare the bejesus out of me. My generation is about appearances and not substance. And look at who raised us. Your generation (my father is 50). I wonder if the obsession with perfection and the whole future employment and getting into the right school mentality running the lives of kids today and my generation has had a negative consequence? Idk.

    There are a million factors in why a society goes sideways. I don't see under 5% being the reason. I don't want gay marriage in my church. I don't know how I feel in my country. "Give to Caesar." I can't control the state and Jesus never tried to either. But keep in mind your words and actions do in fact define you. If you find yourself agreeing with Westboro baptist...be weary. It is the same as thinking similar to the kkk. They preach hate and you walk a dangerous line.

    Ah, I am sorry.
    I meant it wasn't irony, but "truth".

    But if that is still in agreement , cool!

    Sorry, I just got here. Has the gay marriage debate already been resolved?

    If by resolved you mean the christians who started this thread have all nailed themselves to the cross for the night pretending they were the victims because they made a hate thread and got hated for it, then for the most part yes it is solved. But don't be fooled, they didn't use real nails so they will get down. If by resolved you mean the fight for rights is over I would assume the right is going to recharge themselves tomorrow by celebrating easter in a purely traditional model based on the bible's stories about the bunny who seems to poop pastel colored eggs. As we all know that is factual and traditional to christianity while peace and love were not mentioned once in all of the teachings of jesus. I always love people who have no idea of their own traditions.

    I switched my profile icon to something like this:

    I had it up for a hot-second. My wife the next day told me to take it down, which I did to honor her wishes. But yeah, that's how I feel. Gay marriage is not equal to heterosexual marriage. I don't care if the national consensus is "moving pass me" or that I stand to be on the "wrong side of history," there are just things I have beliefs in, and contrary to the attempted public or governmental conditioning, I will not waver in my views. The issue is not suddenly going to become okay in my book because the bewildered herd is running in that particular direction at the moment.

    What an individualist you are! I stand in awe of your rebelliousness. No doubt that you felt the great majority (which is Christian, I might remind you) was a "bewildered herd" when they were on your side, too.
    I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat — your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, “The true prince of Evil — the king of the Slaves!”

    Sure, they were falling for propaganda then as they are now. Pretty much everyone falls into the herd from time-to-time, though.

    FYI -- I got the phrase 'bewildered herd' from Walter Lippmann.
