    No....I meant monogamy. There was a time when polygamy was the norm.

    - 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.
    I do too, Sunday’s was a no no for any business to stay open. Even most of the gas stationed closed on Sundays where I grew up. For some reason I have never been able to figure out, everything also closed at noon on Wednesday’s.

    Yeah, covetness is an impossibility to get rid of. It does seems everyone wants to keep up with the Jones or have what they have. It doesn’t just mean wanting his wife, but if she is rich?
    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.

    I did not know that. I must live a very sheltered life.

    Okay, I still think my one wife may be one too many.

    Again, they are seeking the removal of government force. You are requesting that government force remain applied. I guess I'll never understand you big government communists.

    Exactly, I always have the last words in any argument with the wife, "Yes Dear!"

The party certainly doesn't want the same tax rates for a corporate CEO or a unionized postal worker, right? They certainly don't want government jobs to go to the best applicant regardless of race, right? They certainly don't want a person to leave his stuff to anyone free from taxes, right? They certainly don't want high skilled professionals more likely to vote Republican coming to this country legally, do they?

    Just look at the topic you're in right now. The extremely heavy Democrat population of gays certainly aren't the only group not to have all the legal benefits of marriage but have you heard a Democrat leader push for "equal" rights for other single people who don't belong to an extremely liberal group?

    I don't have a problem with gay marriage but don't tell me it's about securing equal rights. It's about securing better rights for Democrats.

    When the issue is gay marriage who are the intolerant ones?-interracial-marriage-png

    Prior to Loving v. Virginia, NP....the definition of "marriage" would not have included YOUR marriage in any of the states in Red. Prior to 1948, the DEFINTION of Marriage would have not allowed YOUR marriage in any of the states in Yellow.

    In other words, before the definition of Marriage was changed to allow marriages like yours, there were only a handful of states that would have recognized the validity of YOUR marriage.


    hmmmm....sound a little familiar?

    See, NP, Bigotry is Bigotry....whether it be the bigots who opposed inter-racial marriages like yours or Bigots who oppose the marriages of loving gay couples today. The result is the same.

    Also...its interesting that you always try to run away from the logical comparisons between inter-racial marriage bans and gay marriage bans. Here is what Mildred Loving, the black female plaintiff in Loving v. Virgina has to say on the issue:


    “ I believe all Americans, no matter their race, no matter their sex, no matter their sexual orientation, should have that same freedom to marry... I am still not a political person, but I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness and the family that so many people, black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about. "
