    No, it's not Ironic. Deuce claimed he was a liberal by accusing me of feeling victimized by them. I made no assumption.

    1. You were 'amused' by people who stereotype (meaning Deuce).
    2. Then you used a quote against him that stereotyped all liberals.

    That's pretty ironic.

    To be completely fair, the vitriol from both sides of the fence is thick and completely unnecessary. The simple truth is that there is an issue that is in contention. Rather than discuss the issue itself, the parties would rather discuss each other. Let's just stick to the issue and stop insulting each other.

    I don't need to. My point is you do...and aren't.
    Sure. Uh huh.

    Now are you done bitching? Can we get back to the thread?

    Maryland failed to pass gay marriage this year because of the mobilization of a bunch of conformist, black church goers. Typical conformists who feel that their intuitively accepted interpretation of religious doctrine is absolute and everyone else has to comply with it. And like typical conformists, they don't have their own ideas, they simply regurgitated the talking points passed down by their church to their delegates in mass. No real logical or evidence based rational went into this denial of equal rights to gay families. And of course, good ol mac couldn't wait to celebrate by posting about it.

    I guess you'll have to try to take in context of my last post to understand it. Or not, suit yourself.

    Now that is funny.

    Maryland failed to pass gay marriage this year because of the mobilization of a bunch of conformist, black church goers. Typical conformists who feel that their intutively accepted interpretation of religous doctrine is absolute and everyone else has to comply with it. And like typical conformists, they don't have their own ideas, they simply regurgitated the talking points passed down by their church to their delegates in mass. No real logical or evidence based rational went into this denial of equal rights to gay families. And of course, good ol mac couldn't wait to celebrate by posting about it.
    I would imagine those delegates represented like minded people (however you'd like to paint their mindset) and did their job, which is to represent the people that pay them.

    I didn't say anything bad about the delegates.

    Because cow's milk is supposed to be food for for baby cows, not humans. Just like human milk is supposed to be food for baby humans. Whereas, humans are supposed to eat the meat of animals and were doing so well before animals were domesticated.

    Now, one could argue that domestication is not "normal". And at one point, it wasn't. It was a revolutionary idea.

    And drinking cow's milk was certainly not normal prior to the domestication of livestock. The first person to drink cow's milk was certainly engaging in abnormal behavior. Shockingly so, in fact. Probably as shocking as the idea of drinking dog's milk would be to most people nowadays. Or rat milk.

    Since the statement was "making the abnormal normal" I figured I'd take a moment to point out that the claim was not very well thought out because almost everything that we consider normal today was, at one point, considered abnormal.

    In fact, on teh other side of the coin, a great many things we would consider abnormal today were considered quite normal in the past. Christianity, for example, was abnormal at one point.

    It's important to remember that what one person considers normal was more than likely abnormal at one point, and it could be considered abnormal in the future as well.

    What are cows supposed to be?

    It's important to remember not everything abnormal, by nature of it being abnormal, will one day be normal.
