    Panzies is not what we would call right wingers. We have much more entertaining names for them. I would tell you what those names are, but I would get kicked out of the gay mafia if I did.

    Is it common? (And I'm still not sure it's legal.)

    I wouldn't think it's common, since racism is rightfully looked down upon in this country, but it is legal.

    The cons here are just too damn ready to apologize and make friends with our lib counterparts. I won't name names, but there are strong con posters who seem to go out of their way to say, "Oh, but I'm not a racist. or a homophobe, like those others." And they still get eaten up. SCREW that.

    Well, if that's true, it's total bull****.

    Why? It's a private church, and they can do whatever they want.

    Yes. An example from 2000.

    Pastor bars interracial marriage

    I think this article puts it well.

    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    I forget who said it, but the comment was made about Nixon, and how he was great because he knew who the enemy was and went after them all out. He was terrible in that he sometimes thought other Americans are the enemy. Other Americans are not the enemy, ever. They are at most the opposition. If we remembered that more, we might be in better shape as a country.

    I got into the gay mafia on the family plan. I have 2 gay relatives.

    This. The NY law is exactly in line with this.

    I don't suggest that the cons be hateful, just that they stop trying to make nice in their arguments by throwing other cons, be they famous or just fellow posters, under the bus.

    Your post reminded me of this Nixon quote:

    Always remember that others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.
    Considering his powerful enemies, I can see how he might have gone back to that one many times.
