It really had nothing to do with me liking your questions or not. I just became overwhelmed from the anger directed toward me, all at once, for an
issue I am not really part of(not gay or MS resident). My issue has and still is the MSM. I never had an issue otherwise here on ATS, most are civil,
it was just this thread and messages people sent from it. Unfortunately you popped on right after the 'should be burned at the stake for heresy'
comment in which I lumped most of you all together at that point.
Ironic how my personal bias got the better of me.
It happens to the best of us really, but just because questions may overwhelm you, doesn't mean they were personal. Regarding the MSM, they have
selectively decided many of stories that I am sure all of us here on ATS would question....what the heck man? I personally can care less of your
associations, they do not pertain to the underlying question at hand...and that has been a problem here on ATS from what I have found; apparently,
people need an attachment to feel validated. I on the other hand, do not.
I can understand how, through posting here, we can lump together posters and I appreciate your explanation. I know that I can come off cold and
unassuming, but I truly desire the facts of a situation before I commit my emotions and my logic to it. As such, this thread drew out my barrier in
which was exhibited in the beginning.
...the ultimate conclusion that it is impossible for humans to achieve.
I question this...why do you feel this way? There will always be roadblocks and resistance when it comes to fostering a new way of thinking. For
instance, while I personally hold no desire towards applying state power to gay marriage; I also understand that such denial via the State is beyond
the aspects of the Government that serves them.
Here is teh kicker though, regarding my above statement...while I adhere to the above aforementioned, it leads me to believe that States can deny such
if the People so do desire. It may sound queer or counter-intuitive, but it really is the system designed some 220+ years ago to ensure that the
Federal Government wasn't dictating the pure democratic factories of the States.
