    WBC is pathetic. Most people see these inbred freaks for what they are. The only thing they care about is attention, not God, and not the Bible, which they can't quote accurately to save their life.

    It's just a shame these fools with nothing better to do have to impose their ignorance on events like funerals and graduations, and stain such unrepeatable days for the targets of their hatred.

    Sadly, all too well. Still I can hope that the bill will go through and we'll be able to add another state to the list of places that allow same sex unions

    According to the AP, Defense Secretary Gates and Joint Chiefs Admiral Mullen sent a 'strongly worded' letter to Congress insisting that Congress wait to repeal 'DADT'.

    And I sincerely hope that congress ignore their "Strongly worded letter" and go ahead and repeal DADT as soon as they can. There is no valid reason for Congress to wait to repeal DADT. They've waited far too long to do it already as far as I'm concerned. DADT needs to be repealed as soon as physically possible. No more delays, no more excuses.

    Well let's hope that the politicians do the right thing and ignore the Joint Chiefs completely in this case. There's zero reason to hold off on repealing DADT and it is long past time that congress did the right thing and made it possible for gay soldiers to serve in the armed forces openly.

    politicians do what they have to in order to stay in office, it sucks, but thats how it is...I can almost guarantee that any member of Congress whos seat is coming up in 2010 and isnt a shoe in for reelection won't voice their support

    The funny/sad part is, it is entirely believable that he'd actually try something that stupid

    The worst part is, the guy's a church leader (groups like that are basically churches, and are usually attached to a ministry of some sort). If you have the coin to spend on hiring a prostitute, not just for one night by an ENTIRE TRIP TO EUROPE, you've got too much money. As much as I despise that particular church and those with a similar political bent, that money could be spent on the church's other programs and not to the guy's personal salary.

    I can't remember, and can't read the article at the moment, but did he use church money? Because guys like these usually have a lot of money from side businesses/dealings. Although, guys like these tend to embezzle from their churches, so I wouldn't be surprised.

    Even if he wasn't embezzling, I'm troubled when faith leaders lead such decadent lifestyles. I go to a very liberal church, but if I learned that the pastor took an escort to Europe, I wouldn't be upset about him using prostitutes, but I would be loudly asking how much he's being paid.

    Yeah, I saw that.

    Tim Haggard may be a dumbass hypocrite but that church did him wrong IMO.

    Meh, I don't think anything specifically wrong happened there. Haggard creates a hateful organization that drives followers into insane depths of fervour and rage masked as "love," and one day all those enraged followers purge you for not being pure anymore. It's hard to feel sorry for either party.

    Yes, sometimes two wrongs make a right. Ah, Rex Morgan MD, you have the cure for the daily blues ...

    You know, reading this I realised: replace the name "Haggard" with "Davros" and this is essentially what happens at the end of Genesis of the Daleks.

    Good lord I am a geek...

    On the topic of strange subcultures with deviant lifestyles, I move that we pass a law banning Whovians from getting married, joining the army or working as teachers.

    Hey, I'm a deviant and proud of it. "Normal" people are the ones you have to watch out for

    And the only people I've heard use the term Whovians are Whovians.So I suspect your a self loathing Whovian in denial! LOL

    I now apologize for making fun of you keeping a bag packed in case the TARDIS shows up

    People can have sex with whatever they want, watch on TV and the internet whatever they want, play act having sex with whatever, whomever they want....."closeted" is the key word there.

    I just don't want to see it....:cwink:

    Sorry if I'm being dense here and completely missing your point but are you saying that people who are gay, bi, Trans or into various subcultures should stay "Closeted"?

    I mean I'm sure that's not what your saying. There's no reason why we should have to stay "Closeted" and people have every right to be open about their sexuality and sexual preferences but that's how this reads to me and I really don't follow what you mean by saying "Closeted is the key word here"

    Could you clarify that a little? Again, sorry if I'm being annoyingly slow on the uptake here:csad:

    To each their own I suppose. I certainly want to see it:cwink::awesome: As often as possible

    As far as that specific word, as it was used in the post I was replying to.....I REAAAALLLY don't want to see what the "closeted republicans" are doing...:yay:

    Republican speaking out loud: "Sex is bad! Sex is sick! Sex is evil!"

    Republican thinking: "And that's what makes it soooo good."
