    - Though most state laws against Sunday business activities are now gone it hasn't been that long (I still remember them) and a ton of businesses are closed on Sunday.
    - Public swearing is still verbotin (to some extent, though it usually doesn't involve God) but in most places it's a social taboo to swear in God's name.
    - Cheating, while not illegal, is grounds for divorce.
    - Parents are still responsible for their children (we won't get into modern abuses) and, yes, parents expect their children's obedience. I seem to remember some states have laws (or used to have) that touch on this as well, but I don't know if they're still on the books.


    Christians broke the graven images law the minute they started using the Cross with Jesus on it. I would think the cross itself would be OK, as is the Fish. Both are symbols, not depictions.

    I always thought #10 (coveting) was virtually impossible. I think they threw that one in there as a catch all so they wouldn't miss anyone.

    Yeah, now looking back at the kinds of posts the person who started this thread has written, I can see what you mean. It’s interesting though, that he worded it that way. I wonder if he really believes that only gays support the legalization of same sex marriage. That kind of thinking is like saying that only African Americans disapproved of the Jim Crow laws.

    He's old. I'm well over 50 and even I consider him old. It's a good look into how pre-Boomers talk/think, though. My oldest sister is close to his age so I have a little more insight, there. Compared to how my daughter talks/thinks it's almost a different vocabulary.

If it weren't for Wilson and the income tax, FDR and SS, and on and on, we wouldn't be having this discussion, would we?
    The US is not leading the way on SSM.
    There is The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Mexico, and I believe Uruguay. England is voting on it now, as is France. We are hardly "leading the way".

    I think the debate is healthy and as I said, I have no problem with this being decided at the state level as it is at the state level where marriage regulations and laws are written.
    You might want a current dictionary Websters changed the definition in 2003.
    Since 2003, Merriam-Webster has printed an "updated" definition of marriage in its dictionaries to include same-sex marriage.

I am not allowed to have my own opinion if it disagrees with theirs...Now I ask you who are the intolerant ones?
    You're allowed to have your opinion.

    Your opinion simply doesn't outweigh constitutional law. And your opinion is free to be criticized

    So what you're saying is you dislike the constitution and the system the founders have established in this country where we ware not a direct democracy, but a representative republic with three bodies of government with checks and balances...with one such check being the court system?

    I think you meant polygamy. Sure there are still countries where polygamy is still legal. My papasan who ran the apartments where I lived on Soi I, Sukumvit had 5 wives. This was as late as 1976. But he did have 5 wives, he didn't have 5 men he was married to. I see nothing wrong with polygamy either. It wouldn't work for me, I have enough problems with the one I got.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
