Tennessee and the County Commissioner. And your point is?

Exactly Veo. Those people have every right to voice their disapproval of the gay lifestyle in their county. Sad thing is, now the gays will flock there as a show of force.

It will be like "You people WILL accept us"!!!!!!

What's wrong with that?

Voicing your disapproval is fine - legislating it, however, isn't.

You can hate blacks, gays, jews or white people as much as you want - but when you enshrine that hatred in the legitimacy of law you've gone too far.

Let me rephrase - when you outlaw a people for simply being who/what they are then you've gone too far.

Caelie, do you brainwash yourself, or have someone do it for you? Just wondering, since Rhea county wasn't just voicing disaproval. They wanted to pass laws banning homosexuals from being able to live in their county.

Somewhere in another thread, different subject, a dude (ok, it was Aresprophet) raised the notion that religion was analogous to a virus. Here there's a measure of credibility in the mental state of mind of human behaviours being prone to figurative logic routines, much like infected computers function strangely due to nuisance viruses (as distinct from malicious code). The observation has new relevance now because here society is set to legislate on something as abstract as a state of mind.
...What?

My analogy of a religious virus (borrowed from Richard Dawkins, largely) is due to the fact that it is (A) meaningless outside of a host [like all memes] and (B) that is 'reprograms' its host to the specific end of propagating the virus instead of its own genes. This doesn't get into any morals or ethics involving what might be termed "viral behavior"; it's just a means to an end. So I have no idea what in the hell you're trying to say here, unless you are linking heterosexuality to a virus, because it is trying to eliminate any tolerance for homosexuality. This would be wastefully redundant, by the way.

Anyway, the case in Tennessee is a shining example of how people can be utterly brainwashed by [insert probable cause here]. Political ideology? Religion? Paranoia? Genetics gone haywire? It doesn't matter. I wouldn't mind seeing them vanish off of this planet (good riddance in fact).

Nobody has the right to tell anyone how to live their own lives. This is the ideology I follow. Understand that, even as simple as generalized as it sounds, if you think about what that exactly means, it makes perfect sense. You have the right to hate anyone you want; you don't have the right to act on that hate. You have the right to do anything at all, so long as it doesn't affect another person without his or her consent/knowledge/agreement/etc.

I don't understand how anyone can rationally disagree with this sentiment.

Reading Lurikeen's posts and accepting them as truthful has been known to make one very very gay.

Is that right, Trith? So how do you explain your gayness?
