    If you can't debate civilly here, why would I go to the basement? So you can possibly rant and throw a tantrum?

    Sorry, I am not interested.

I don't assume that I, as a person living in 2010 America, pick up a translation of an ancient text and assume it means what it would if those words had been written recently, and in English.
    I know what the text says, I don't need you to try and tell me it's wrong or I am misunderstanding the translation.

    Nothing to debate here.

    Yep I think I hit it firmly on the head.

    I made up my mind, yes. Does it have anything to do with how YOU interpret what you see? Probably not.

    Re: Should Same Sex People be allowed to Marry

    folks please, the topic at hand is Simply whether there should be equal rights for all People, to be able to be married if they so chose, with out any regard to their sexual preference. ---All this other conversation, though riveting, is off topic. --and I thank you, do carry on.

    Pathetic.
    I apologize for attacking your spelling. That wasn't very nice of me. I don't think that my OCD spelling makes me pathetic, though.

    But, you see...

    There is no discussion possible on that question. It is an obvious "yes". As everyone realizes this, automatically, without thinking, it is immediately discarded, and focus turns to the slightly related topic of whether or not gay marriage should be made legal.

    I don't throw tantrums. I rant. It's a problem. But, CaptainCourtesy informed me that a basement thread like this would most likely not go well, so I decided against it. I'll reply to you here.
