    I know you weren't directing that at me, but my response would be, so what? Are there a list of laws prior to the new testament that Christians are supposed to follow? Did't the new testament create a new covenant between god and his people?

    Christians are telling me all the time that the new testament nullifies the old (though I don't necessarily believe that), why wouldn't it nullify everything that came before it? Is there something written in the new testament that affirms what your saying?

    What about all the other rules that came before the new testament, do you believe they should all be followed? If not, why?

    While I don't believe in people being fired for voicing their personal opinions, I dispise people who think they are privy to be referee's in our bedrooms and personal lives.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Which quote shows it as something?

    I hope you are including the aspect of personal lives that is eating food they like. Or, is that different since democrats like banning it?

    I am certainly against banning unhealty food, but certainly for making it mandatory for resturuants to post nutritional information about what they are serving so people can make informed decisions.

    Very similar to having a law forcing doctors to tell and show, and women to listen and look, about and at all the problems that can result from abortion, physically and mentally, including forced to look at an ultrasound, before they can get an abortion. Or teaching students about the added consequences of gay sex like higher rates of AIDS. These examples are what we call "refereeing" personal lives.

    Not at all. If the evidence is factual and provided in an unbiased manner then it should be provided. But I am aware that this information could be provided in a bias manner. If it were I would be against it being provided in that way.

    How could anything Robertson said have anything to do at all with what you do in your bedroom?

    Exactly. What he said was "Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right." The fact is you can do whatever you want in your bedroom as long as it is legal.
