    The Google is wise.
    Nah, every primary school boy knows that Cumbria is the county in the North West where the famous Lake District is to be found. No need for Google.

    Just like you did under Bush.


    Your limited vision of history is amusing if not predictable.

    Technically the officer was in the wrong, but my sympathy for the preacher = zero. For years the religious right has repeatedly acted to deny gays equal rights, so when the law is used against a preacher for acting like the dickwad he's grown so comfortable being in this nation, I admit I get a small chuckle out of it.

    So, the gent in question was approached by a woman who engaged him in conversation about religion. In the course of this conversation, he mentioned a number of things that the Bible asserts to be sin, one of which was homosexuality.

    He was arrested, in essence, for saying what his religion believes to a woman who willingly engaged him in conversation on the topic of religion. He is being charged and tried for this.

    And you're okay with it.

    Well, I guess that's it for Freedom of Speech huh?

    This fanaticism for gay "rights" makes no sense to me. Why do you fight so hard for this particular alternative lifestyle? Why not Polygamists or other alternative lifestyles? What makes this one so special that you want to force everyone else to accept it without any basis in genetics or any other natural cause for it?

    Freedom of speech, huh? I guess constitutional protections are good for some people but not others. I disagree. Still, I said

    "Technically the officer is in the wrong."

    Reading is gud.

    You can't achieve civil rights for all marginalized people at the same time. It's not indicative of any hypocrisy, it's just that it's most likely impossible.

    Baby steps.

    Then you should support all alternative lifestyles yet I bet if I name a few you wouldn't approve of them.

    Maybe, maybe not. I guess that would depend on whether all participating parties were of adult age and able to consent. And even then I might disapprove but still take the position that it's not my right to bring about litigation to ban that "lifestyle."
