    Well, when someone says blacks were happy picking cotton prior to civil rights in the Jim Crow South, I take issue. Sad to hear you, with all your claimed religious enlightenment, find remarks like that acceptable.

    I feel the same way when the stupid, dogmatic portion of the left gets confused with liberals.

    Hate filled, bible thumping hillbillies are certainly part of the right, though they do not represent it much like anti-American Jihadist apologists are part of the left, but do not represent it, either.

    Prefixes like arch- and ultra- now enter..

    I'm now moving to RITE-ist, as RITE refers to a pagan..
    As my wife pointed out, Duckk doesn't even measure up to the "prodigal son", as he now sits as a judge on "lessers" .
    They, Rite-ists, completely miss that point. He's judging and they say he's only expressing an opinion based on scripture. The unChristian-like judging goes whoosh, right over the heads of these people.

    And marriage - you're saying it's better if someone at age 16 who doesn't really have a clue what they will end up doing gets married (so they can have sex) - a technically lifetime commitment - rather than have some sex (protected) and give themselves time to find out who they are and what they want to be.
    Yes, that is what I am saying. I would rather they abstain from sex until marriage and get married in their 20s, but we aren't discussing what I think would be ideal.

    There is something to be said for marrying young, though, since the older you get the more locked in your ways you become and the harder it gets to find someone to share your life with. If you marry young, you will develop your personality with the person you will be living the rest of your life with. There is something to said for marrying your high school sweetheart.

    Yes, some couples that get married at 16 work out. Lots don't.
    Same could be said for getting married at any age.

    I would hate to see a 16 yr old getting married; it's too permanent a commitment.
    Your life's true pleasures, and the path to true happiness, reside in the lifelong commitments.

    Ditto with Gay Pride Parade chap-wearing flamboyant homosexuals are not representative of all gays. But, they will always be brought up whenever gay rights are discussed.

    Obviously, a 16 year old boy cannot care for a family in this day and age. So in reality, you see nothing wrong with an older man marrying a 16-year old girl. Do you prefer she remain barefoot and pregnant or can she at least finish high school?

    Pretty lame that your Phil-defense has led you down the path where you now advocate Ephebophilia.

    So you are again being dishonest, about it being shown, which is impossible, as well as the assertion to begin with.

    Your assertions are nothing but the manifestations of convoluted biased thoughts.

    You are speaking nonsense to what is being discussed.
    It has no relevance.

    Phil made no comparison.

    Well, they were happier. They were religious, happy, intact families and church going people. Sadly now the illigimitate birth rate is 80%, walking around uneducated, unemployed, angry, and running in packs causing trouble with a large % in jail and prison. I am shocked how black women allow those guys to take advantage of them, saddle them with kids and can't get an education to improve their lives or the lives of their children
    The rules of advancement in getting and keeping out of poverty is:
    finish High School
    get a job and work hard
    don't have a baby unmarried and don't get married till over 25.
