two points....

 

religious-minded people IN NO WAY should be expected to accept edicts that run completely contrary to their perception of human interrelations.

 

suppose the scotus ruled in favor of pedophia or bestiality? would you argue that such practices fell within the purview of basic human rights and or liberty???

 

the other point is that set standards of moral conduct have to be maintained from generation to generation otherwise degradation, corruption and collapse of those standards will occur...and to a considerable extent have.

 

 

so asking people of faith to accept a form of secular godlessness without so much as a squawk is not reasonable...

 

nor is it reasonable to characterize legitimate moral objections religious americans have as bigotry, hatred and prejudice.

 

:)

 

Laws shouldn't be created just because a majority doesn't 'accept' something.   NO SIR.   Laws are to protect the general populace from harm.     AGAIN,   two gays getting married does NOT harm anyone.

 

I have NO issue with you NOT accepting gay marriage,  or anything else.   NO issue at all,  but when you call for laws that PREVENT others from engaging in practices that you don't accept,   you have crossed a line that to me is immoral.   

 

Again,  you are the one that introduced the concepts of freedom and authoritarianism:  making something illegal denies freedom and you have provided NO reasons for such a law since you can't show that HARM is caused to others.     YOU are the one that wants a Nanny State.   THINK about that Nip and be honest.    It is YOU that is calling on a nanny that denies freedom to others.    

 

TRUMP understands this and that is why he doesn't wish to ban SSM.     Listen to your leader.

Religious types will just have to accept the fact that we don't

live in a Christian equivalent of Iran or Saudi Arabia, where

religious authorities have a significant say in government.

Gay marriage will work out okay and nobody will be disturbed,

except in their feelings. Two hundred years ago slavery was

considered moral by most people. Should that moral institution

have been maintained and not changed? Morals change,

always have, always will.

9) Medal of Freedom  singer Loretta Lynn

 

Country singer Loretta Lynn, a legend in Nashville whose life story was told in the movie Coal Miner’s Daughter, is also talking about the Republican presidential front runner – and she loves him.

“Trump has sold me – what more can I say?” Lynn told me over the phone just before the start of Trump’s rally Thursday in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

The country icon publicly supported Trump at the end of each of her shows and declared her support at an awards dinner in December — and she says that her fans have been supportive as well.

You couldn't be more wrong as it relates to SSM.    No liberal is forcing anyone to get married to someone of the same sex.

 

Instead is it conservatives that wish to DENY the right for someone to get married to someone of the same sex.

 

THAT is being a soulless authoritarian as well as denying liberty.   (BE HONEST,  you know I'm right here).

 

Why do you care WHO someone marries????   Why do YOU wish to control the lives of others?????

 

Really Nip,  I understand why you support conservatives on economic issues but I don't understand why you're so afraid of gay people.   Note that Trump favors SSM and said so after the election.

I think there are people who see the changing of the definition of marriage in the law that the SC decided on as being a law that is wrong. I for one want everyone to have equality under the law.
 
 I do see that the decision the SC made was with a couple of hurdles and they both had to do with morality. The first hurdle was with God and the history of America and it's belief system. The second hurdle was with how nature gave witness to a form of acknowledgement that there would be a breach of the normal nature of life if the change was made to redefine marriage.
 
The SC decided to change the law but first the decision was made to ignore the obstacle of morality. I as an American can live with the law, but as a individual I can believe the law is wrong.

just what exactly does this clown mccullough mean by handing over how far we've come to trump?

 

I assume he's alluding to social 'progress' like same-sex marriage and the like. America ain't just progressives alone but social conservatives as well.

 

the religious and the god-fearing. why should not that part of America consider the scotus' same-sex marriage ruling an attack upon judeo-christian morality and indeed, the civilized standards of western civilization itself?

 

for the traditional monogamous marriage union is one of the very underpinnings of western civilization and it's associated societies.

 

it's always that one way with liberals...

 

their way and bleep what everybody else believes! :angry:

 

that is not freedom and tolerance but a godless and soulless authoritarianism masquerading as human liberty.

There were many, many clues way prior to 2016,  starting with the Dem defeats in 2010 especially the major gains by the GOP at the state and local levels.

well, why are you banning images, links and videos?

it's a very long wait for a jpeg to up at tinypic dot com

I doan have to do it but I'm a considerate poster. :D


This Thread is about what individuals have said about Donald Trump.
They don't have to be famous or well-known, but it's probably more interesting if others are knowledgeable about their identity and background.

What I'm looking for are just quotes with attribution. You can look at my first three examples. I feel like when a person actually has to write what another person has said--they better understand what they are actually communicating.

Every thread doesn't have to be identical or conform to the average.

Hopefully Trump keeps his promises of America first.     Netanyahu uses America to push his political agenda.   We don't need those type of friends.
