    Like the following Senators.
    Biden, Reid, Clinton, Kerry, Schumer, Feinstein, etc...
    In that case, see post 235.

    Hate for GW is what grew the partisanship politics of today.

    Since you seen to be the designated leftist, maybe you can answer something for me:

    Why were the same people who were anti-Iraq, pro for attacking Syria? Was it just the leftists politicians and not liberals in general?

    I think some folks have conflated the terms "tolerance" and "advocacy". I can dislike something, SAY I don't like it and still be tolerant of it. When I try to stop it... like, say, trying to get someone thrown off their job, I drift towards intolerance.

    I totally agree. Which is why I say you don't have to accept (you use the word advocate) certain aspects of other culture, but in some cases you should tolerate it. This of course depends on what we're talking about and all the extenuating circumstances that surround it.

    Yes, the first time I really cared about gay marriage was when the DC government tried to end a Catholic run charity in the district because they didn't support gay marriage. It was then that I realized that the gay marriage lobby isn't actually about tolerance, it is about conformity. As I have argued before, I would have no problem with the gay marriage movement if their methodology were not so destructive and their arguments logically clean and taylored to gay marriage only. As it is it is a sloppy, roughshod movement that does far more harm than good.

    While I advocate gender, sexual preference, and racial tolerance (among other things), I understand that movements can be hijacked. Even as an atheist we get "Atheism+". It's total, unadulterated crap.

    God's condemnation against sodomy predates the Law given in Leviticus. It goes all the way back to at least Abraham.
