    Pretty close.

    The only reason you're freaking out over it is because you've never stopped to think about it.

    I can only tell you what the law is. The law is that states have the right to not allow one man to marry another man. I don't care about your opinion on the subject.

    So, why come to a political discussion forum?

    I think that post is very telling.

    Conservatives don't want to talk about it, they don't want to hear about it, they don't want to be confronted by anything that might challenge their world view. Psychologically, the far-right must be dealing with a lot of fear and insecurity, the way they cling their belief system like a favorite blanket. It almost as if the beliefs give them a sense of self--"I'm with this group, we believe", a sense of belonging to something and finding purpose.

    Then why are you here? This discussion is about what the law ought to be, not what it is.

    I don't care about your opinion on the subject.
    I noticed. You are closed-minded and afraid to subject your own opinions to challenge. Again, why are you even here?

    The title says Bachmann Challenged by 8-Year-Old.

    A fair fight if there ever was one...

    And the OP put her own spin on it, adding the homophobic comment "sick perversion" demeaning people for being born different that her. I call that bigotry.

    Use a qualifier on those statements or else be deemed guilty of using logical fallacies. Logically, you are not to demonize a group based on the actions of individuals within that group. If that holds for the OWS, then you can be sure that holds for conservatives.

    It's true, unless you can cite where your religion says that it is just an opinion. I'll bet it states it as a fact.

    It's probably good that he learn to defend his mother. I'm sure he'll have to deal with bigots many more times in his life. You don't even know for sure that she put him up to it. Do yourself a favor and go to a local mall and see how many kids approach Santa in the same manner.

    You're probably being sarcastic, but if not that's simply untrue.

    There was no competition between her and the child.

    Whoever titled the issue as "challenged by the child" is misguided.

If someone else want to refute that ludicrous claim then so be it.
    You are using the appeal to popularity fallacy.

    What if this mother kept this kid at home and home schooled him to keep him from being "polluted" by the diversity found in a school setting?
