    God, what a tedious thread this must have been to participate in. It illustrates perfectly one of my two life rules: 1)Never eat yellow snow and 2)never get into a debate with a teenager who's been home schooled her whole life.

    The worst thing about being home schooled is that you never really get over the crush you had on your third grade teacher.

    If you had limited to your opinion, your sentence would have read as follows "Sexual acts involving pets or farm animals, children, dead bodies and same gender partners are generally Things that I find repulsive."

    See that part in bold, especially the pronoun I underlined, italicized and made larger? That's the bit that would make the statement an opinion statement. Frankly, I'm surprised I have to explain such simple composition rules to you, but apparently simple grade-school-level English composition was not covered in your "better-than-Columbia-and-Harvard" educational studies.

    Now, since instead of making a sentence like the one described above, you instead wrote: "Sexual acts involving pets or farm animals, children, dead bodies and same gender partners are generally considered repulsive and immoral sex acts to normal people of a civilized society, regardless of religion." you are making a claim that can be verified and supported by evidence. The part in bold is again key to undestanding why this is so.

    What you will first need to do in order to verify and support your claim is A. Define "civilized society" B. Define "normal people" within that civilized society. C. Show that they find All of the acts you have described repulsive (What this means is that simply showing that necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality are considered repulsive does not cut the mustard) and D. that religion plays no role.

    I expect that you should be able to provide me with an essay in using sources following either the APA or MLA guidelines (I'm not picky), given the superb education level you have attained. Scholarly articles only, please. I expect a higher standard from one of your educational stature.
    Yea, I'll get right on that Tuck.

    I have absolutely nothing better to do than varify the obvious to someone who doesn't recognize that proposition 8 was an open and shut indicator of main stream americas intolerance of perversion and immorality.

    And yes, I am part of the main stream america that believes all those things I listed are sick perversions, as if I really needed to explain that__I think you people believe that playing dumb strenghens your position.

    Actually you are part of the abnormal America that believes that what gays do in the bedroom is important. It is a surprisingly rare point of view these days. Since you won't "varify" your comments, they are basically worthless.

    Everybody hop on board the fail-train, Empirca's driving!

    First, let's go back and look at your statement again, because it seems even you have forgotten it:

    "Sexual acts involving pets or farm animals, children, dead bodies and same gender partners are generally considered repulsive and immoral sex acts to normal people of a civilized society, regardless of religion."

    I made that last part real big so that you can't dodge away from it like a fat kid dodges broccoli.

    Now let's look at a few things that illuminate the truly spectacular nature of your complete and utter fail:

    1. Prop 8 was only about same sex marriage. Nothing about it can be used to indicate that "normal people of a civilized society, regardless of religion," consider same gender sex "repulsive and immoral". It can only be used to indicate that the majority of those who voted felt that same sex marriage should not be legal.

    2. Despite the apparently atrocious nature of the geography lessons you received in your "better-than-columbia-and-harvard" education, "California" is not "America". It is a state.

    3. You have done nothing to demonstrate that those who voted for prop 8 were :
    • Normal
    • A part of a Civilized Society
    • Not influenced by religion


    4. Even if you could somehow rectify all of the problems found in 1-3 (Which is only possible in a universe where logic is completely replaced by magical unicorns ridden by eccentric leprechauns that have rutabagas breasts and lollipop nipples), you have done nothing to generalize those findings to all normal people in all civilized societies.

    Thus, you have failed. But at least you have done so spectacularly.
