Boy, I would hate to share a foxhole with one of these queers, how come they are called "gay?" I was brought up to think if you were gay, you were happy. Our country is going to hell in a handbasket.

Well first of all not all gays like pink. Like me pink just isnt my color. and for mr.caesar Most gay people dont like or want str8 guys like all of you think. Cause str8 guys are sloppy and nasty and we are better then that. And another thing most people that is homophobic and are uncomfortable around gays is because they are insecure and are gay them selfs and to scared to come out of the closet. now me I live in Marion and have been out since the 7th grade funny thing is i shut people like you down in highschool. so dont come hating when you dont even know. Truth be known your probably an insecure little girl begging to get out the closet haha. Peace :]

An overwhelming number of people think the real reason for the Christmas season gets lost in the rush and commercialism. To a large degree, it has.

Jesus Christ is what it is all about.

Yet, even as we voice our desire to keep it true to its purpose we still miss a large part of the event that caused the angelic chorus in the heavens to sing praises.

To make my point we need to look no further than the headlines: What would the Child of Bethl­ehem— who came to us in a stable, lived in poverty, and had much to say about possessions— say about the tax bill?Was he only kidding when he spoke of the perils of excessive riches? The same people who demand Christ be in Christmas are the same who defend the greed of corporate America and demean the social programs that aid those struggling to etch out a living.

Where would the“Great Physi­cian” draw the line on health care?

Christ showed a tremendous empa­thy for the suffering. Would he not demand that the richest nation on earth find an affordable way to care for its wounded?

Columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested the new START treaty, which attempts to reduce nuclear arsenals, was at the bottom of our concerns. Really? How would the Prince of Peace respond to pour­ing billions into weapons of mass destruction that pose a threat to creation itself?“Blessed are the peacemakers!”

Then there is global warning.

Jesus the man lived close to nature and used simple truths of creation to convey his message.What excuse could we possibly make for failing as good stewards of the Father’s World? Even if global warming was a hoax, simple logic would convey that humanity can’t keep pouring pollutants into the atmosphere without causing problems.

A final example is the 'Don’t ask Don’t tell' policy. Conservative Cal Thomas suggested that repeal­ing it would weaken our military and threaten the foundation of our nation. I would think that no matter how strong the foundation of a structure or empire it will not stand when it veers too far right, or left. His mind-set also seems inconsistent with the Preacher who commanded (not suggested) that we love with all our being and leave judgment to God the Father.

It is not my intention to demean those with conservative beliefs or suggest they do not have a right to their opinions. I simply want to re­mind that the reason for the season applies to everyone.

I was in the military for over 22 years and I'll just tell ya , we ALL knew who the rump rangers and lilly lickers were ! They have no shame. So,,, As a Soldier in a leadership position , I gave all those individuals ALL of the shit details I could give them , INCLUDING , going on all convoys and kicking doors down operations I could find. They die just as easy as the straight people. They want to be cannon fodder , I say let 'em be cannon fodder. LMAO , freakin' homo's
