Re: “RiverDogs to rock old-school Rainbows jerseys in honor of Pride Fest

My comment is actually about the current mascots. How come they aren't named Ashley and Cooper instead of Charlie and Chelsey ?

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Brewengineer,

What do you think Genesis 2:24 is a reference to?

Do you suppose that passage is frequently cited by the clergy administering wedding vows because it's a reference to two pals entering into a property contract?

Why would Christ cite that passage in one of his most noteworthy discourses on marriage? To show what marriage is not?

Thanks for the morning chuckle, Brewengineer. I'll be sure to refer to you anyone needing illumination of scripture.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Regardless of the biblical, schmiblical rantings here, the definition of marriage changed once again when government stepped in and made marriage a legal contract, so we have at a minimum, three definitions of marriage - Pre-biblical, biblical and LEGAL. I am going for the LEGAL aspect because religion is not going to protect our LAWFUL rights - on the contrary, religion is actively lobbying to DENY us rights - THROUGH LAW (using tax-free $$ no less). Therefore, religion will FOREVER be a thorn in the LGBT communities side and anyone's side that does not cow-tow to religious tenets. Just don't see why the religious community does not focus on their own shortcomings and allow others to "fail" in their judgmental eyes. After all, if the world comes to an end today, the righteous will have their place in eternity and surely they don't want a bunch of LGBT folks there with them. It would denigrate the meaning of heaven for them and they would not be blissfully happy in that environment. Some may even want to leave heaven to go to hell just to get away from us. If the religious community would just respect everyone's right to happiness (including their own), the world would be a fantastic place. I respect their right to practice their beliefs and no one is tying to stop anyone from BELIEVING whatever they wish. We are not trying to force straight people to get gay married, so why are straight people trying to force us to get straight married.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

"None of which you state disproves that marriage existed in the Old Testament.

One needs to look no further than Christ's response to the pharisees in Matthew 19. In response to a question on divorce, Christ gives a discourse on marriage and divorce and references Gen. 2:24 in regard to marriage, "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

The institution of marriage existed from the beginning of the Old Testament."

There was no Christ in the Old Testament. Now you are mixing up new and old testament, which means you have no argument. You can't say "well, Jesus said this in regards to the old testament passage, therefore the old testament actually meant this." That is not quite how it works.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

freefirezone, do you even read what you post here? So you know that marriage predates religion, yet you still post that others are ignorant for being ok with marriage not adhering to strict Christian terms? No, I stand by the fact that you are ignorant. Period. You also ignored the other comments here about the old testament not specifically mentioning marriage.
This was your original post: "Who has permitted you to redefine marriage?"
If you weren't ignorant, and understood how the rules have changed over time since before any current religion existed, you would have never posted something like that. You would understand that we, as a modern society, redefine marriage often to make it more fair, more beneficial, and more meaningful. And I think the key point is, that the biblical definition of marriage did not require strong bonds and even degraded women. A direct reflection on the era in which the bible was written.

Re: “Has Boxcar Betty's mastered the chicken sandwich?

The Boxcar after a big night out of drinking I think will make you have a religious movement.
The sandwich was excellent. In this day and age of lunch or dinner being $9-$15 if you are going out this was on par with that. I left satisfied. Only complaint was I couldn't drink a cold beer with it.

Re: “Has Boxcar Betty's mastered the chicken sandwich?

I've been to Boxcar Betty's twice. I had the salad the first time and on the second visit I had the Boxcar. The sandwich was delicious and the salad was good. I disagree on the size of the portions though, because I found them fairly small. They possibly could be using chicken raised without hormones, which would be a reason for smaller chicken breasts. At almost two and a half times the price of a Chick-fil-a sandwich, it will be interesting to see how strong the demand is for their sandwiches. Also, is chef the right term to use for someone in charge of a kitchen that has three fried chicken sandwiches, a fried chicken salad, chicken fingers, and french fries on the menu?

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Brewengineer,

You're moving the goalposts as is typical of one who can't defend his original premise.

You stated that one is ignorant for not recognizing that marriage existed prior to Christianity. I stated that its obvious marriage existed prior to Christianity as multiple examples of it are found in the Old Testament.

It matters not that concepts of marriage may have predated Christianity in other primitive cultures. Simply showing its existence in the OT is sufficient to rebut your inane remark.

Re: “Since 2010, the Pride Festival has gotten bigger, more visible, and more welcome

Wonder if there will ever be a serial rapist pride parade? A deviant behavior pride parade? An adulterers pride parade? a child molesters pride parade? Perhaps and alcoholic and drug users pride parade? How about a blasphemers pride parade or a fornicators pride parade. These people need to come out of the closet least they become neurotic..

Re: “Boeing CEO says employees are ‘cowering;’ machinists’ union is not amused

Dp4, your clueless. I work there and the company treats people like shit, then pays a megaton of money to make themselves look good. The don't care about people at all. Just money and airplanes. People have died there and nothing changes.
They hire in rejects from fast food places that have no aviation background, pay them shit wages, and then have meetings all Damn day to figure out why shit doesn't work. I've been in this industry 25 years so I have real good idea of what I'm talking about....it's pretty outside and a shit hole inside. Mcnerneys comment is exactly how he feels and it reflects in his managers...
