I totally agree. I don't approve of gay marriage because I stand by what the Bible's stance on homosexuality is, but I'm certainly not going to be hateful towards gay people, either. My parents taught me to "hate the sin, love the sinner," and that's what I try to do in my life. Just because I don't approve of a gay person's lifestyle doesn't mean I have the right to hate them or be abusive towards them; that's not the Christian attitude to have towards a fellow human being. HOWEVER, just because MY beliefs might be different from a gay person's doesn't give THEM the right to instantly label me a bigot or hatemonger, either. This is America, and we're all allowed to have differences of opinion and agree to disagree; it's when people decide to be NASTY about their opinions that we have problems.

That said, the thing that I'M opposed to in reference to the gay movement is just what Deborah_W stated: the idea that the gay lifestyle should be given preferential treatment. NO group should be given preferential treatment over another! Whether you're being ultra-nice towards your own group or hateful towards one you're not a part of, you show biased treatment towards ANYONE, and that's wrong. Period.

I'm done ranting now, ha.

The ideals that America was founded on is what makes us a Christian nation. You're right in that, no, Christianity is not the national religion -- that would be a direct violation of the First Amendment.

However, the Declaration of Independence clearly states that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." GOD is very clearly made out to be the one who gives us our rights as human beings, NOT the government. THAT is what makes America a Christian nation: the fact that our Founding Fathers wrote into our country's very founding document that God was the supreme master of all, and He's where we get our freedom from. It doesn't have anything to do with how much of the population is Christian.

They CAN'T tax them because they're not LEGAL citizens. Like mikidnan said, this is all about getting more federal money from the government because Missouri will have more "citizens" living in the state. It's disgusting and shameful what they're doing. I hope all those illegal aliens get rounded up and sent home as a result of this census; they're taking our money, our health care, and our jobs, and it needs to stop!

Gay and lesbian families WEREN'T forbidden to come to the White House Easter egg roll back during the Bush administration -- they just weren't SOUGHT OUT because EVERYONE was allowed to come, regardless of their religion or sexual preferences or anything else! What Obama is doing is discrimination against heterosexual families, pure and simple. Gah, seeing Obama blatantly pandering to his constituency just makes me ill.

(And before anyone jumps on my case about me using the word "discrimination" towards this situation, Webster's New World Dictionary defines "discriminate" as 1) to distinguish, and 2) to make distinctions in treatment; show partiality or prejudice. If Obama isn't doing just that -- showing partiality towards gay families and prejudice towards heterosexual families -- then I'm the Queen of England.)

Ha, oops, put the wrong title in there! I can't keep track of all these positions that all of these Obama appointees keep getting stuck in -- really makes the case for SMALLER government, in my mind...

Anyway, thanks for correcting me!

Yes, we may have the technology NOW, but Obama's made it clear that he wants to purge the world of nuclear weapons. Does anyone want to take any bets that AMERICA will be the only country that actually disarms, while all the rest of the world hides their nukes away from public eyes and claims, "Yeah, sure, we got rid of ours. HONEST, we did!"?

Also, I don't doubt the might of the American military; I doubt Obama's ability to use that might CORRECTLY and in a timely fashion. Big difference there.

And lastly, even if North Korea WAS actually just launching a satellite for their budding space program like they claim they were, I have no doubt that they'd be more than willing to sell the plans for their missile to the highest bidder. Anybody ELSE nervous about the idea that Iran could end up with these plans? I know I sure am.

I'm going to be at the Greenville , SC protest on April 17th, from 6-7:30 at the Bi-Lo Center. Wish I could be at the ACTUAL Tax Day rally in Charleston, SC, but with it being in the middle of the week, I won't be able to drive that distance...Not cool. Anyways, I hope lots of people come out to the Greenville protest; I heard about 2,000 came out for one that was held back in February, and they're expecting even MORE this time! I'm excited about it!

God bless America!

I'm pretty sure, if you look up the word "inept" in the dictionary, there's a picture of the U.N. beside it.

I mean, really? Stricter sanctions? We could all be GLOWING right now -- that missile could've very well contained a nuclear warhead, we had no way of knowing! -- and Obama basically just lets it slide. He didn't even act like he truly cared! Telling the U.N. to put stricter sanctions on North Korea is at the very bottom of the list of Things I Can Do to Show I'm Being a Proactive President That Involve the Slightest Amount of Actual Effort on My Part.

I think the dictionary entry for "inept" has pictures of both the U.N. AND Obama next to it...

I'm just praying that North Korea doesn't see this as a sign of weakness from the U.S. Even though I'm fairly certain they have and do. God help us all.

I don't want to have to learn EITHER language! I live in America, I speak English, and that's the only language I'm ever GOING to speak, damn it!

I completely agree with you. To me, when I hear about something like this, it just makes the case for the necessity of the 2nd Amendment. We Americans should be allowed to carry a gun and protect ourselves and our families should the need arise. Gun control laws only hurt the good people who want to be ABLE to defend themselves and their loved ones -- it doesn't stop the bad people like drug dealers and violent criminals from getting guns that they can just purchase through the black market anyway.

I find myself wondering what would have happened if someone in that building had had a gun on them. It's entirely possible that that person could've stopped the shooter, and we wouldn't even need to be talking about this story.

This is all so incredibly sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and everyone else who has been affected by this terrible tragedy. God bless you all.
