    I'm not going to argue the merit of an argument once you go there I'm done.

    Most people that enter a discussion are actually capable of conducting a rational argument....perhaps you could try a blog of one-liners and see if anyone is interested.

    Or or or...you could just admit when you dont have an argument.

    As Christians we're suppose to love the souls of the lost and seek to win them to Christ.

    We must lead as an example to our children and grandchildren so they won't become lost souls.

    That's all good and nice, but you still are not supposed to judge others, whether you think they are wrong in their reading/interpretation of the Bible or not. That is not your place to decide. It is only your place to point others in the way you think they should go, not to try to force them to go that way.

    You are free to act as you wish. If you wish to act in an unAmerican manner, that's your choice (it is America afterall).

    I have no trouble being a Christian AND an American.

    They made that vote many years ago.

    And, Virginians and South Carolinians voted (in some way) to ban interracial marriages. How did that work out for them?

    What gives the minority the right to over-rule the majority's decision? And again this is just one judge's opinion.

    You are not prohibited from speech. Are you not doing so here?

    As for 'allowing' well there are limits to how you can 'act' on others of course. Rights, infringement, all that pesky secular Constitutional stuff.
