Exactly. You formulated an opinion on one statement, which is an assumption. Not fact. Just like you incorrectly assumed that I was talking down to someone. All I meant was unless you read the bible, you may not be familiar with the particular bible verse. I typed the verse to show that anyone who was religious, or tried to be since no one is perfect, holds marriage sacred. As I stated earlier, if you support SS unions, so be it. Just don`t call it a marriage, because it isn`t. And don`t fool yourself into thinking it`s normal, because it`s not.

Dontbea, there is the perfect example of making assumptions of other people. Your statement, “The bible says a lot of things that you and many others pick and choose which ones you want to follow.”
Do you know me? Are you assuming that I may be some religious poster spewing select bible verses to back my point of view? I never said that I was passing judgment on gays and lesbians, asking to round them up for extermination, just stating that it wasn`t normal.
So I guess you are no better than the others in the world who make judgments or formulate opinions on stereotypes or whatever the popular consensus at the time will say.

No human on this planet can normally propagate the species in a same sex union. Therefore it is abnormal.
Now, unless you are a religious person you may not understand what is to follow.
"'Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.[Genesis 2:22–24]
Most religions recognize that a marriage is made between a man and a woman with the hopes of producing an offspring. Something that cannot happen naturally in a same-sex union.
It amuses me how supporters of same-sex unions immediately deride those who do not support it as “right wing whackos” or “ancient minded conservative`s” who are living in the past. You expect everyone to accept your view while you criticize others with name calling. So, are you much better than anyone else? If gays and lesbians want to be together, so be it. Just don`t tout it as normal behavior. Call it a “civil union” or call it whatever. When you call it a marriage, it is an affront to all normal human beings who value the institution as sacred, special, and a solid foundation to moral family values.

Ugh. Another state accepts abnormal behaviour as normal. Yea...
At the very least, call it a civil union instead of a marriage. It is insulting to those who are in a normal marriage of a man and a wife.

RIP Walley Bell. A very fine individual that I was fortunate to know.

Kudos to MillCreek. My children played there for years. It`s a great place for the kids to have fun and an inexpensive night for the family to enjoy a good game, new friends, and a hot dog. Summers can`t get much better than that.

KO, have you ever actually picked up a book and read it? Ancient Greeks predate Hannibal. Hannibal, was from Carthage. His people originated from what is now modern Lebenon. Carthage was Rome`s rival but Hannibal eventually was defeated. I believe it was President Lincoln that said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”
Although it is too late for you, perhaps you should stop typing now.

Who is the victim of bad schooling now?
Please do not talk about what you obviously do not know.

Parlay, my point is merely that slavery is not something that happened just on American soil 250 years ago. Many cultures have experienced slavery over time. To say that American slavery is a debasement unheard of in human history, is a bit much.

KO- Anti... Wrong it was Egypt with the First written language , first math , greatest builders going back 4000 years ago not 2000 years ago .Greece was smart to learn from the African who conquerd Italy ! King Hanibal.I guess your a product of the bad school system you talk about .Don't talk what you do not know.
I`m intelligent enough to say I do not know much about Egyptian history. But I know enough that it wasn`t only Egyptians that built that civilization. It was slaves, and they weren`t all black. Hence the original point I was making, slavery is part of the human nature. Prejudice is human nature.
BTW, Hannibal, although had victories in italy, did not conquer Rome. Rome eventually expelled the Carthginian`s, leveled their city and rebuilt a Roman city in it`s place.
BTW 2, Greece came before Hannibal. So the Greeks couldn`t learn much from someone who was born yet.
