gotta say, if someone I don't want to have sex with, keeps pressuring me to have sex with them...male or female...I wouldn't be their friend any longer. or if they were pressuring me to do anything else that I didn't want to do, like Amway. I wouldn't be socializing with them, it would be uncomfortable. but that's just me.

Funny how the racists are so happy to take over the U.S. And make it their own little white playground with no thought to the Indians whose land they stole. I can't believe that racist is still here.

The racist here has pretty much been ignored and has the right to be here. White supremacists historically are the uneducated, white trash of American society. Nobody pays them attention because they are boring. They have their own websites where they revise history at will. For example, they claim Hitler did everything he could to avoid war but had no choice, forced into war by England et. al. If you get bored and want some amusemwnt, read their respective revisionist stuff just for the heck of ot. But they are not worth engaging. Most of them are simply not smart enough to debate and personally, I won't bother arguing with people who have sub par intelligence. It's like arguing with a ten year old.

Damn betcha ...

C'mon ... Amway makes some good products ... the metal cleaner is awesome!

I wouldn't be socializing with them, it would be uncomfortable. but that's just me....
I know how my daughter deals with it ... and believe me it doesn't take long for the guys to get the picture and leave her alone. She finds it annoying but she also told me some of the women get a kick out of getting that kind of continuous attention.

I would not tolerate someone relentlessly hitting on me for very long. Some people just don't know when to quit ... time to set some higher boundaries.

Pig ... I have a feeling if you would be more assertive the guy would quit hitting on you ... or do you enjoy the challenge of dealing with him playing grab-ass with you (even if he's not really touching you)?

Daytripper , Have you heard of the Solutreans , Kennewec man? Check em out. Chris Columbus was strictly a repo man for the White Race. Speaking of Nazis , while I do not subscribe to National Socialism ; might I remind you of Rudolf Hesse , peacemaker wannabe? So , both these posters got their History diplomas from mandella high? With majors in Revisionism? Perhaps some White Studies would clear the fog.

Nothing I have stated about this matter has been a complaint. It's not a "problem" I need a solution for. If I didn't want him hanging around, he would know it. My only point in all of this has been that gays do indeed pursue straights. In fact, it's rare to *not* see it happen in the bars and clubs I frequent, and no, it's not gay bars and clubs. The concept of gays and straights being segregated here died many years ago. You can expect mixed crowds just about anywhere you go.

Rob you are the epitome of an idiot!


Oh thanks for that, I have no idea why you think I would bother having two profiles.

Anyway you can't be as smart as you claim you are. If you were you could recognise who has multiple profiles. I can, but you have no need to worry, I won't reveal your secret.

Anyway I am concerned about your health because there is a strain of meningitis affecting MSM in NYC, have you been vaccinated yet?

Christians Couples File For Divorce En-Masse To Defy Gay Marriage Ruling
Posted on July 4, 2015 by Priscilla Mason

Thousands of Christian couples, some who have been married for decades, have vowed to file for divorce in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling which has legalized gay marriage nationwide.

Adam Cyrus is the founder of Christ in Family Services which provides bible-based counseling to married Christian couples throughout Topeka Kansas. Cyrus says he supports the wave of high-principled duos seeking divorce as an act of protest. “We are symbolically divorcing a government which no longer honors our culture and values. We have no desire to benefit from a system which characterizes us as the enemy and enables and rewards sin under the guise of holy matrimony. If they wish to reward and empower those who desire to make a mockery of our faith, and misrepresent our religion, then we intend to remove ourselves altogether from this bureaucracy so that we may practice our faith in accordance to our beliefs.”

With this combined with various state legislators seeking to ban marriages of all kinds in their states, I think we can only come to one conclusion: Christianity is a threat to the institution of marriage. Now as I recall, if something is a threat to marriage it's supposed to be banned. That was the argument being made until a week ago.

I frankly can't be bothered myself - I just believe in live and let live. But there are bushels of folk in America who are mighty concerned about any threat to marriage. I'm sure they'll all be calling to ban Christianity any day now.

Well... they have find some way to prove same-sex marriage will destroy the American family... don't they...?

After all... if they don't... won't they just come off looking foolish for having said so in the first place...?

I suspect there is a new entry for "Mungo's Rules" in this...

They are divorcing under state law. Their marriages will still be recognized by their churches. That is my understanding of their "logic."

What is interesting is that my most liberal friend would say that marriage became meaningless BEFORE the court ruling and push for gay marriage and that is why they don't understand the opposition.

To them, marriage was already meaningless and has no real value or use anyway, so they said "why not gay marriage."

It's amusing how Christian's forget the changes to marriage which have evolved over the years. Prior to approx 1920 marriages were nothing to do with love at all but more a contractual arrangement. This sums up the changes which have happened over time quite nicely.

I would venture that Christians see value in marriage where as staunch supporters of gay marriage, like my friend, see no value in it and have no desire to be married and think that it is not even smart or necessary to marry.

I would venture that individuals opinions aren't all equal based on a sub-group they can be slotted into.

Not ALL Christians see value in marriage.
Not all supporters of gay marriage see no value in it - if they did, then no one would bother trying to extend the rights to include the gay community.

Marriage, and it's meaning, in the States is constantly being changed to reflect the current times. Gay marriage is only one more amendment reflecting current recognition that equal rights should be awarded to all who wish for the union of marriage.

In the early 19th century, marriage was considered a contract between two non-African American adults of opposite gender. Sometime later in that century, (Igor is the historian so he might be able to provide more accurate dates) in the territory that is now known as the state of Utah, polygamy was legalized, a contract between a man and one or more women, all being non-African-American consenting adults. Around 1890, that was retracted.

It was only following the civil war that marriage was permitted between African Americans but couples were still limited to marrying within their own race. So a contract between two consenting adults of the same race and of opposite gender.

It wasn't until In 1967, over the objections of about 70% of the population mixed-race couples were permitted to marry. From my understanding, the Supreme Court ruled the 16 remaining state miscegenation laws that prohibited interracial marriage were unconstitutional. The court case was called Loving v Virginia. A marriage then became a contract between 2 consenting adults of opposite gender who met a lower age limit and were not close relatives of each other.

I simply don't understand the party line this most recent change affects the "sanctity of marriage" since that's been in a constant state of flux for so long.

One down... now the rest of the dominoes fall...

Kim Davis, Kentucky clerk, faces decision after same-sex marriage setback

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the Kentucky county clerk who has refused to issue same-sex marriage licences, and the clerk will arrive at work Tuesday morning to face her moment of truth.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/kentucky-clerk-same-sex-marriage-licences-1.3210770

Another victory for "the rule of law"... Another victory for equality...

Now... other elected officials will know... that you cannot use your personal convictions... to justify acting "outside the law"... That "separation of church and state" DEMANDS... you leave your personal religion... at the doorstep... where your elected and official duties are concerned...

This is what "Defending the Constitution" looks like...

Enforcing a change in the law. I can't wait until they try to make my friend work on Fridays until after sundown in the winter months when it gets dark early. THAT will be quite a lawsuit.

Davis should let them fire her. Officially.
She'll be on talk shows and write a book and make more money.

Yeah she can tell the world how she sorta kinda invoked gods law by stopping gay people from obtaining a married license, but let adulterers and other sinners alike get a pass.


Though I am sure you would feel the same way if you where refused service at the DMV because you did not have on a hijab, as the person behind the counter should be able to imposes their religious beliefs on you.

Yeah and she could call it; "How I attempted to impose a christian version of sharia law and failed"

So just incase you have not heard.

Kentucky Clerk Fighting Gay Marriage Has Wed Four Times
By Steven Nelson
Sept. 1, 2015 | 4:37 p.m. EDT

The Kentucky county clerk facing potentially stiff penalties for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses has been married four times, raising questions of hypocrisy and selective application of the Bible to her life.

The marriages are documented in court records obtained by U.S. News, which show that Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis divorced three times, first in 1994, then 2006 and again in 2008.


(Then there is this gem)


She gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband. They were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second.

Davis worked at the clerk's office at the time of each divorce and has since remarried.

Whatever your position on this issue, does it matter?

She asked for forgiveness and repented and didn't try to force change of tenets to condone her behavior.

Her choices in behavior didn't lead to a movement which resulted in shutting down bakeries, florists, photography studios, wedding rental spaces or removing people from corporate chairman positions.

She asked for forgiveness

Well... when I hear about all the people she refused licences to... say that they have heard her apology and accept it... I would say that "forgiveness" doesn't exist in this case....

and repented

Hardly... From my understanding... "repenting" means you have acknowledged your error/sin... and have vowed/promised to make the effort not to repeat it... And yet... repeat her error she did... AND... she continues to attempt both things to this day...

Doesn't sound much like repentance to me...

and didn't try to force change of tenets to condone her behavior.

Really...? Well then what would you call... trying to stop others... who weren't her... from doing the "right thing"...?



You know... I can't help but wonder... if "passive-aggressive"... is a "Jersey-thing"... that has filtered out...

Wait ...LOL.. LOL. I.... Wait.. OK....


Now some lesbian couples are suing new jersey to find that they have a medical disorder so that the state can pay for artificial insemination as "fertility treatment."


So this lesbianism is a disorder? And they Should be fertile Together but because of the Disorder they are not?

The disorder is in their heads and of anyone going along with this craziness.

Wait ...LOL. ...wh.... LOL.


Its a disorder that they want to have a baby. . . .together.... Uh, sure.

SNL couldn't come up with anything this hilarious.


The world is insane.

Do you know how many people have to lie to some government agency in order to get help in many ways. Some have had to lie so they can get medical treatment or mental health help or food stamps. Some have lied and gone bankrupt and lied some more to get cancer treatment.

So go ahead and laugh Dee. I hope you and yours never, ever NEED anything that you can't supply.

BTW, many provinces and states pay for fertility treatment (many don't). Do you know how much fertility treatment costs? Do you know anyone that has actually gone through fertility treatment? I do. So if these women live in a state that makes them LIE in order to get treatment paid for or partially paid for......it's the fault of the state and ignorant people.

Two lesbians calling it a medical condition that they can't conceive, together, is like you saying that your not having a Ram's horn is a medical condition and therefore the state should pay for you to get one.


You are right. People do lie to get free stuff.

This is beyond a "lie." This is crazy.
