Clarkie, thank you for making leemajors' point, and proving that chief nugget has no idea what he is talking about.

Re: “Watch Lindsey Graham destroy his flip phone with a samurai sword

So you'd think that if Trump says Mexico is sending these people, then the Mexican government would get really pissed at the accusation, but they're not. Why? Because they're smarter than most of us and the US media. They realze Trump is just a loud-mouthed egomaniacal buffoon. And as soon as Americans wake up to that, he's done.

Re: “Watch Lindsey Graham destroy his flip phone with a samurai sword

Well, Hell, if Mexico is sending their people, we've got a beef with the government, not the people they're sending. But, then again, I don't think Mexico is sending them, I think they're coming on their own. But I could be wrong.

Re: “The Agenda: Roof charged with hate crimes; McGinley to Berkeley?; West Elm, Field & Stream opening soon

Here's a question. Why does the media make celebrities out of these idiots? I don't have the need or the desire to know their names or see their faces. I wonder how many would perform these senseless acts if they knew that they wouldn't get a write up in the paper.

Re: “Supreme Court history maker and Pride grand marshal says, 'We have more to do'

Clarkie - Whose God? Yours? Your God is very unhappy those who pass judgement on others. Another case of the direct line to God. Is it because God has no time to micromanage and has appointed you the supreme office manager of Earth? Perhaps you need to burn a little sinsemilla and clean the body and mind, you will feel much closer to Jah and perhaps gain some insight into brotherly love. Peace out Clarkie and remember Live and let Live as there are many versions of God.

Re: “Charleston Pride hosts its first ever same-sex wedding expo

Oh, and clarkie, FYI: Sodomy is NOT confined to "homosexual" relationships - straight people have and do use butt-holes, too (and some just are). However, given my husband's Vietnam war (protecting your rights to disagree with whatever) service related disability, we don't engage in "sodomite-sex" so there is a slim chance you may approve of our marriage.

And don't start the "who is the woman in your relationship" crap either. There is NO woman in our relationship - we're BOTH men. Ewwwww, right? Well, I had straight sex in order to stay in the closet for many years but that is about the grossest place I have ever put myself into. Ewwwwww! To each his or her own - LIVE AND LET LIVE.

If you are worried that our existence is going to bring the end-times, why hasn't it happened yet, because we existed BEFORE christianity was even created (by man)? Otherwise, if the end comes today because of us, then you ARE prepared, right? You are living a sinless life, I presume. And given you are dishing a log of judgment, you must be "clean" as Jesus - except for that judgment thing, anyway. You are on your FIRST marriage, never engaged in pre-marital sex and NEVER EVER masturbated, I am sure.

I know I am casting a lot of judgment right now but it is your god that said, "judge not, lest ye be judged" (paraphrased), so you get judged back when you cast it out.

Re: “Charleston Pride hosts its first ever same-sex wedding expo

@CIACulinaryKid. Thank you very much! We had shared over 32 years together before we were able to wed in our home state - and hope to make another 32 years, however age ain't on our side. Again, so glad of the support our community has seen in the "Holy City" and it's WELCOMING traditions.

I'm so familiar with This American Life that I can totally imagine what Ira Glass sounds like in the above example: it's his typical schmaltzy shtick with a bit of irony. Humor! Everything is not about political correctness. Sometimes things are just funny.

Re: “Charleston Pride hosts its first ever same-sex wedding expo

"How can a city like Charleston call itself "The Holy City" and then hold their first Gay pride parade with all the wickedness and unclean persons marching down the streets"

It's pretty easy, actually. Just envision a world where self-loathing homosexual church-goers and church officials didn't make it a point for 150 years to cut off their nose to spite their face when addressing the idea of homosexuality. Or if not that, to draw attention away from their impulsive desire to drink, cheat and/or swindle.

In all of the scriptures, is there ANYTHING that's regularly interpreted more stringently than the handful of vague verses pertaining to homosexuality in the Christian Bible?

Moreover, why is the subject of homosexuality the ONLY TOPIC that routinely elicits Dark Age rhetoric from the Christian community? We're talking fire-and-brimstone, snakes-in-pulpit, talking-in-spells creepy shit here (such as the comment you just wrote, Clarkie). Most of the people spouting such nonsense wouldn't know the Sodom and Gomorrah story if someone threw the manuscript at them and it brazed their slack jaws as it fell to the floor in the puddle of drool.

It's all in your head. Seriously. As soon as you realize that you've been brainwashed and it's YOU who is upside down rather than society, you can start coming to terms with your own sexual identity.

Re: “Watch Lindsey Graham destroy his flip phone with a samurai sword

umm nope.
You just missed my previous comments.

The exact quote is..
"When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast."

Regardless if you agree with him or not. It helps to deal in facts.

First and foremost he was referring to ILLEGAL immigrants. A very important word in any discussion and one that seems to get dropped more and more in any discussion.

Nothing in those comments is meant as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

Your the one who is uninformed and making your assumptions based on biased news
and not just a man's words and deeds.

Again do you have any facts to support your opinion?

Do you happen to know how many latino americans he has in his organizations from all levels of business?

Re: “Charleston Pride hosts its first ever same-sex wedding expo

Being intolerant of intolerant assholes isn't 'intolerance,' it's being a compassionate normal human being and calling you guys out on your bullshit.

Don't worry--allowing homosexuals the rights afforded all consenting adults isn't going to devalue your boring sexless marriage.
