    NP, you think anyone who disagrees with you is a lefty. I've seen you call some OBVIOUS right wingers, lefties, just because they disagreed with you.

    This in itself could probably be a separate thread.

    One of the problems that we are experiencing as the nation and politics becomes more polarized, is the increasing intolerance any anything in the middle. The whole SSM issue is a great case in point.

    You can't agree with SSM that since it brands you as a lefty
    You can't agree with the death penalty since it brands you as a right winger

    Many now (Navy Pride, you seem to be one) can't accept that many of us have a mixed bag of thoughts, beliefs and ideology. There was a time when political parties, both Republican & Democrat could cater to a diverse set of beliefs.

    Sadly no more. To use the cable TV analogy, to get the one channel you want, you need to subscribe to 500 channels of total garbage.

    Now in some respects I blame media, the internet. We can watch, associate with an environment which only supports our own personal views. Read the Bias in the Media forum to get my point!

    If I don't agree with it, it's WRONG WRONG WRONG. Shouting is the hallmark of talk radio and the entertainment sometimes called CNN, Fox News, & MSNBC and it in some ways validates the opinions of those who can't accept there are alternate views of society.

    NP in your mind I may be a lefty, I've also been called a right winger, which in my mind is a badge of honor, telling me; I have a brain and can decide issues individually, not on some herd mentality

    I've been called a righty, a lefty, and labeled as one on each side of nearly any issue at one time or another. The key is to remember WHO the accusation is coming from. In cases like these, the accusation says more about the accuser than the accused

    Marriage has always been flawed, but in history there were conditions that masked that:

    1. People died at a much younger age, a bad marriage was solved by early death!
    2. There was a financial issue, especially for women, that they needed to survive, and marriage was a way to do that
    3. Kids, once again women (generally) were the one's who felt responsible for their children's survival
    4. Divorce was for many western societies either illegal, or so difficult that it was impossible for a normal individual

    I don't believe that humans, or human relationships have changed. What may have changed is the social and legal recognition of the human condition.

    Apparently you believe in a flat disc earth with a dome over it and underneath was Sheol. That's what the writers of the OT described.

    I don't believe that humans, or human relationships have changed. What may have changed is the social and legal recognition of the human condition.
    I believe our relationships have changed. For instance, we marry today much more commonly for love or attraction than for family honor or status or benefit.

    But the more relevant change, in my opinion, in how it is advantageous to marry has come to our laws. We have divorce court which actually concerns itself with dividing property between both partners in a marriage. We actually consider (or at least are supposed to) which situation is best for children when it comes to a divorce, living with each parent half the time or living mainly with one parent, and the other providing monetary support and visiting the child or the other parent having no contact. There are also protections of the spouses from other family members, particularly upon a death, and these are legal protections for both spouses. There are also protections of the spouse from the other for abusive situations.

    It's quite apparent you've never really researched the issues. You guys just make the same, sophomoric arguments ad nauseum.
