  1. The anti gay Christian agenda is to vote all judges out of office who do not agree with the anti gay Christian agenda. These anti gay Christians are evil and vile people who want to destroy not only gays but America and set up their own Christian government to rule the American people, taking them back to the middle ages.

    1. You got that right, Tom. And the terrible truth is they also want to make money off of their hate at the same time by running non-profits and paying themselves salaries they could never make elsewhere – like Ms. Maggie Gallagher of NOM. It’s no wonder they work so hard to make us miserable. Like (the movie) Jerry McGuire said best, “Show me the money!!”

    2. Yes its called ‘Fascism’ which derives from the word “fas” meaning the “law of God” since the law of god cannot be changed or negotiated away.

      Fascism is a European ideal that originated from the Vatican for the last 1500 years or so, then embraced by YOUR monarchy, the germans, italians, and spanish, all of which under the guise of the church. Of course Fascism has spread from Europe and England (right after the Monarch signed a treaty with the Pope) to the colonies and the rest of the world.

      My ancestors (native americans, mayans) celebrated homosexuality as a blessing and it wasn’t until the Europeans came over and destroyed all of that. In essence homophobia is a European custom derived from pagan and pseudo worship of reproduction which has lead to heterosexism.

      1. Yes its called ‘Fascism’ which derives from the word “fas” meaning the “law of God”

        OED says otherwise: ‘from Italian fascismo, from fascio ‘bundle, political group’, from Latin fascis (pl FASCES: ‘a bundle of rods with a projecting axe blade, carried by a lictor in ancient Rome as a symbol of a magistrate’s power, and used as an emblem of authority in Fascist Italy.’)

      2. I think it’s more likely that the homophobia you describe is found more obviously in the three Judaeo-Christian religions – Judaism, Christianity & Islam, and that European pagans had as much room for tolerance of difference as other cultures around the world. Saying that, I find it quite impossible to understand how the gospel of Christ as it has been passed down – even by the Christian Church which seems so persistently fanatically homophobic – could ever be interpreted to be intolerant of homosexuality or any other minority. ‘True’ Christianity seems to have been destroyed as soon as it adopted by the dregs of the Roman Empire around 300AD, it then becoming a means of furthering the political ends of the last Roman Emperors. All the Catholic Popes do not occupy the ‘Throne of St Peter’ as they arrogantly boast, but the throne of Nero,Caligula & Heliogabalus, whose true successors history shows them to have been….

      3. Ummm homophobia is not a Pagan thing. I think you will find its more of a Abrahamic religious convention.

    3. Our government can never be a “christian” government because the forces that be will make sure it isn’t going to happen.

      What we (the citizens of the American Republic) are under is a government that employs maritime admiralty law with most of the real laws going to the localities (who pass “ordinances” instead of “laws”). Our system of government is way beyond “christian” — that is just a fairy tale that is being told to the gullible (both christians and gays). Our government is a Roman system, with Jewish laws and Greek philosophy. If it were “christian” at all we would have kicked wall street and all the rest of the money changers back to the City of London where they belong (and mooch of YOU) just like how Jesus did when he kicked out the money changers from God’s temple (and this was the main reason why he was crucified).

      Our country is not a “christian” nation, it is a monetarist nation. Lets get that straight.

        You forgot to mention that the American judicial system is mostly all inherited from English Common Law.

    “Caroline Kennedy is the only surviving daughter of President Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline” Caroline Kennedy is the only daughter of President and Jackie Kennedy.
    Their only son John was killed in an aeroplane crash off Marthas Vineyard July 16th 1999. Although he was inexperienced, he had never flown at night he left Essex County Airport at dusk with his wife Carolyn Bessett and her sister Lauren on their way to a family wedding in Massachusetts on the evening he was killed…..
    The Kennedys had one other son who died soon after birth.

      Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is apparently carrying on the humanitarian work the Kennedy family have become well known for and was very active in the fight against prop 8 in California…

      I made this comment because the piece in quotes by PN infers that they had more than one daughter. Apparently some d**k thinks it is wrong by thumbing me down. but was too cowardly to post a rebuttal…which i would like to see because what I have said is well known fact not opinion….. another spit and run troll.

    There were actually 5 judges who gave the unanimous verdict, all conservatives. The three removed were the only ones that NOM et al. could remove at the time. The judgement wasn’t pioneering, it was common sense application of established principles.
