Exactly the same as misinterpretations on homosexuality.


lol...yes, I believe we have said the same thing.

As I said, we have all seen the results of applying misinterpretations.

But Bible passages and their interpretations aside, there are those who are repelled by homosexuality on a personal level. While I freely admit it does not appeal to me and I am no advocate, I do not campaign against it.

Each is entitled to the one they love.


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

You asked for a reason to make bigamy illegal. I didn't say it had anything to with me.

So basically that question was just a set up to bash me.

I'm a serial polygamist, rather than a parallel polygamist. Getting them all in the same room at the same time is just not something a sane man will do!

Not if he intends to sleep at night with both eyes closed....

Well I don't have a crush on anybody. I'm not above a bit of joking around to lighten the mood.

The men referred to in that statement - - - means "white male property owners".

The Creator was not even in the first 2 drafts. It was added later - - - and refers to the Deist concept of a Universal Creator - - - that created the physical world - - gave it to man - - and had no more involvement.

No, i'm just too sexy!

You know though, we'd better stop joking around before somebody too serious gets uppity and decides to have these posts removed for being off topic.

And I read it as the men referred to being all of mankind. There's that pesky interpretation again.

Perhaps we should just agree to disagree. Although I'm not at all sure what it is we seem to be disagreeing about.

I enjoy a good debate, but I will engage in no arguments with anyone.

Then you are making my point. Curse of Ham was used to justify slavery - - just as the bible is used today against homosexuals.


there are those who are repelled by homosexuality on a personal level.


And the #1 reason is the bible.

No one has to like or agree with homosexuality to support EQUAL RIGHTS.

Thank you, thread, for an interesting conversation.

Since this has turned away from being a free and easy exchange of ideals, I will bid you all good-bye.

See you on the boards

Yup, that's it. Safer for us to just stand in a corner where they can't get behind us with an iron skillet, and watch...

I agree. At least in modern times.

It is difficult to actually know what was in Jefferson's mind at the time.

Blacks and Native Americans were considered a sub-species. Exactly how Liberal was Jefferson?

I wish Legal Equal Rights for a minority group was as easy as - - signing off a thread.
