Re: “Why aren’t the Dems putting up a candidate against Mark Sanford?

Freefirezone, read the comment before you post: I said Republican, not Conservative. Or do you believe there is no difference?

Loved it. Lots of great flavors to choose from.

Re: “With same-sex marriage all but inevitable, what's next for the gay rights movement?

When it is all said and done, I hope that fairness wins out and LGBT folks can get LGBT married AND non-LGBT folks can continue to get non-LGBT married, whether it be at the local Probate Judge's office or whatever setting the LUCKY couple chooses. With the challenges faced by the LGBT community, we are exceptionally fortunate when we can find someone who truly loves us.

The town of Kiawah did not build Freshfields. KDP did.

Re: “The stories of 3 same-sex couples who tried applying for marriage licenses last week

Well, now I understand. Thanks, zee. Real marriage involves children. So all you straight couples that want to marry, you have to vow to have children. If you do not want children or you cannot have children, you are not allowed to marry. Now if we could just make all those gay activists see that, we could just drop the subject. Mindset of a simpleton.

Re: “Why aren’t the Dems putting up a candidate against Mark Sanford?

Cherny is actively seeking funding... for a total of $680 dollars so he can print up yard signs. Yes, $680. He is not asking for money for TV ads, he is not asking for PAC support. Anyone here care to help out?

Re: “The stories of 3 same-sex couples who tried applying for marriage licenses last week

Never mind I take that back. This is a very economic issue related to the business of wedding ceremonies and church charges. There has to he an equal before the law arrangement in all business so gay people getting married in a business such as a church is correct, but that's not the case in denominational "religious" customs(religious communities).

Wow you can almost see how the business side of things can force even an ethnic custom to its knees in the same building!

Life at its best! New trends to be set?

Or is this the monetary devaluement of religion itself?

Well I'm not one to judge anyone seriously unless its a matter of life or death

Re: “Bicyclists and pedestrians should not be treated like second-class citizens

Is that it? Are we done? Let's summarize what just happened so maybe we might learn something.

1. The CCL put out an editorial in which they made a bunch of unsubstantiated claims about bicycle riding at the behest of Charleston Moves.

2. Some of those unsubstantiated claims seemed to be obviously misleading.

3. When confronted about those misleading claims, the spokesperson made further misleading claims.

4. When presented with facts about the law that prove the claims of the CCL to be incorrect, the spokesperson refused to justify that false claim or otherwise substantiate any other claim in the editorial. Instead of defending their positions with facts and using the opportunity to educate the public about their vision for biking in Charleston, they chose to run away.

5. The public is left to conclude that none of the claims made in the editorial by the CCL are justifiable.

Moral: Advocacy groups must establish trust with the community before successfully enacting agendas of change. Trust starts with honesty. Groups which misrepresent the facts are unlikely to be good for the community and unlikely to be successful enacting their agenda.

Free advice: Bicycling advocates would build a lot more trust in the community if they were to advocate for some measures that promote cyclist responsibility in addition to all of their demands. Licensing, registration, and liability insurance would be a consistent and justifiable stance to adopt for those organizations which want to argue the right of bicycles to exist as vehicles on the roadway.

FYI, Kiawah built Freshfields. Did not take it over. Also the owner of the property Sidi is on was owned by a lady who passed away this yr. and the estate is selling it to settle the estate.

In case you haven't met Dimitri Cherny, he's been all over the lowcountry lately, shaking hands and talking about putting capitalism to work for ALL of us. Dimitry is a thoughtful, practical man, a son of immigrants, who works a full time job and has still managed to put in many, many hours campaigning over the past few weeks. He's garnered endorsements from the Charleston Green Party and Thomas Dixon's Coalition among others.

Dimitri's running as a write in candidate. He lacks the big checkbook of the Republicans; but he would bring one thing to this office that the GOP can't ... character. Please check out his website.

Re: “The stories of 3 same-sex couples who tried applying for marriage licenses last week

This isn't marriage. Its gay marriage. I think marriage is something else involving children, and that gay marriage involves property rights and visitation rights.

Still they should be regarded as two seperate things.

I don't know why people are against gay people "marrying" each other, but marriage between a man and a woman is a totally different thing.

Sorry, didn't mean to once again revisit the gay issue....oh that's right that's all this turning to crap paper reports on these days. (No wars)

No news! City paper has fallen! You can keep your paper we only read cause the blotter anyways.

I'm tired of all of this schmoozing and pandering this paper does for ad money, and your ads make Charleston seem like one trashy red light district.

Cp isn't like it used to be...relavent to life...oh well there is still the blotter.

Don't tell any SC lawmakers, or expect to marry him here. Don't write a play about it. Conversely, tell Bravo or Food Channel and you'll get your own show.

Secured: " I believe that same sex unions should be recognized and provided with the same benefits as married couples." Oh really? Then why didn't you and your kind work to make sure that was the case, years or decades ago?
