This is a non-issue as long as you are a man who can go on having sex for the rest of his life to the point the physical exertion could become life threatening thanks to the likes of medicines such as Viagra and Cialis. Heaven forbid a woman take birth control to prevent an unwanted pregnancy let alone take birth control for the treatment of any number of other serious health conditions.
This would be non-issue if the right had left it alone in the first place.
Apparently Fox News isn't the only one who won't let the facts get in the way of a good story based on these comments. What bothers and saddens me the most is human life now has such little value, at least with the readers here, that the loss of 3 lives has become the secondary story in the comments.
The problem with Chattanooga is so many of the homosexuals are married to women. If you don't believe me, you should check out the craigslist ads in this town. I digress.
Oh, and Rolando, Chattanooga's Pride week is in a couple of weeks. Hmmm, I haven't seen any billboards this year for the events.
NoMyth, I agree whole-heartedly that the government should not be involved in holy matrimony. That should be something different churches determine for themselves. Unfortunately, there is no other way to get all the sharing of rights, privileges, and benefits with another person outside of legal marriage through the government no matter how many legal contracts is drawn up between 2 people.
Lastly, it baffles me how the public is so much more concerned over same-sex marriage and so not concerned over the divorce rate and how heterosexuals keep screwing up the institution of marriage turning into a farce at best. Maybe everyone is afraid the same-sex couples will be able to do it right.
If you don't get that, then happy season where advertisers have spent millions of dollars convincing you that hope and happiness can be bought in a store.
I've read it takes one complete generation to pass for a complete fundamental ideological change to take place and hold in a society. If this is true, the best we can hope and pray for is an American-friendly authoritarian government to rise and take hold in Iraq.
Obama couldn't win in this situation no matter how he reacted. Had he stepped right in when this disaster first broke, Sarah Palin and her acolytes would have been shouting he was trying to take over the oil companies. HOWEVER, the time has passed for this lose-lose situation. Even his supporters are ready to throw up their arms because swift action is needed NOW since it didn't happen weeks ago.
As far as calling the CEO of BP, what would be the point? That CEO and his company have more than demonstrated their incompetence in this disaster. Maybe they should be contacted and placed in a holding cell until other experts are called in and this disaster can be resolved. Then once resolved, we can have them readily available to nail them to the wall.
I recently took a trip to Frankfurt, Germany. I would like to add they also have a large supply of wind turbine farms from what I could tell. I could see them from the air as we were making our approach to Frankfurt. The Germans are very much an eco-conscious people.
You make it sound like your parents' generation knew how to raise children up right and keep a marriage strong. You ask what changed? Without pointing fingers, all I can say is it is too bad the next generation didn't take good notes. Oh well, I'll blame it on the moonshot.
VW isn't even putting out the cars yet, and our crime rate already feels like Detroit.
Would abortion even be an issue if half the money spent on the research for such wonderful male drugs like Viagra, etc. was put to helping develop better forms of female contraception?
Let's face it. Nobody likes abortion. But, as a society, we'd much rather have this debate than empower women by giving them more control with preventive measures over their sexual health.
For those who preach the use of condoms, please see the link below. Even those are only 97% effective at pregnancy prevention when used correctly. There has got to be a better way.
