Court favors disclosing anti-gay marriage donors

Sorry, kiddo, calling someone and expressing a dissenting opinion falls short of legal harassment. http://dictionary. law.com/Default.as px?selected=853  (2 hrs ago | post #1765)

Losing Streak Lengthens for Foes of Gay Marriage

You are the idiot advancing the argument that three or more is equal to two. Any sane person would be able to see that polygamy and same sex marriage are entirely different, and that arguments of polygamy have no relevance to the topic at hand. So, either you are an idiot incapable of counting to three and understanding that three or more is greater than two, or you are a disingenuous liar advancing a fallacious argument. Which is it, Frankie?  (2 hrs ago | post #2566)

Then why do you keep advancing the argument that three or more is equal to two? Frankie, either you cannot count, you are an idiot, or you are advancing an argument that is fallacious. So, which is it, are you dumb, or a liar?  (2 hrs ago | post #17022)

When last I checked, telephone calls were not illegal. The receiver of said calls even admits that they were few in number, and that he sometimes engaged in debate with the callers. Face it, Wondering, you made a stupid assertion, and then supported it with an article you hadn't fully read that doesn't actually support your conclusions. Once again, your lack of reading comprehension makes a fool of you. Congratulations, you have indicated one instance of minor inconvenience, in which no illegal activity took place.  (3 hrs ago | post #1763)

Seeing that you have difficulty counting to three or understanding that it is greater than two, thank god you aren't anyone's teacher.  (3 hrs ago | post #17013)

Not really, even the cases that have been brought recently fell far short of legalizing polygamy, although they did decriminalize cohabitation. You do realize that is not a net win for the irrelevant argument you are advancing, don't you? If not, then you are dumber than I have given you credit for being. Keep in mind, I am giving you credit for being too dumb to count to three, or realize that three or more is greater than two. Which is to say, I think you are pretty dumb.  (3 hrs ago | post #2561)

Sorry, Dan. An institution is a legal instrument, not a person. As such, it is not capable of making such determinations. People can make determinations for institutions, and the question here is whether those individuals in the government of an institution have the right to substitute their free will over and above those of othersThat is the crux of the discussion, Dan. An institution is seeking to assert their interpretation of religious dogma over and above an individual in their enrollment. You are arguing that the institution has the right to supersede the free exercise and free will of the individual, and I am arguing that doing so is the beginning of the end for freedomDan, I am not attempting to "control the narrative" I am arguing for actual freedom, and you are arguing that individual freedom can be modified or subverted by institutions. Requiring someone to adhere to an individual institution's interpretation of religious dogma is subversion of the free exercise of religion as well as their free will. Allowing such an interpretation of free exercise is to the detriment of free exercise.  (3 hrs ago | post #95)

No one is demonizing traditional marriage, or suggesting that it should not be allowed. The inverse is not trueJack Phillips is not in jail. He was ordered to make cakes for same sex couples, and elected to stop offering wedding cakes at all, which rectifies his issues with the law. Why do you lie, Brian?  (5 hrs ago | post #17007)

And who determines those beliefs or their interpretation, Dan? The institution, being a legal instrument and not a human being, lacks the capacity to do so. Humans running said institution make those determinations, which they should be allowed to do for themselves, but not for others. Free exercise means being able to make one's own decisions, not having to abide by someone else's interpretation of dogma. That is not free exercise, and it is why I so frequently call you a hypocrite.  (5 hrs ago | post #93)

Brian, like an idiot, you are once again off topic. You are also wrong. I respond to illustrate the latter in its full glory, to show what an idiot you areYou are an idiot, and a liar. http://dallasmorni ngviewsblog.dallas news.com/2014/07/j ust-like-iraq-immi gration-crisis-has -roots-in-gop-lead ership.html/ http://abcnews.go. com/blogs/politics /2014/06/analysis- whats-the-real-rea son-behind-central -american-immigran t-wave-u-s-law/ http://www.forward progressives.com/p resident-signed-ac t-encouraging-thou sands-undocumented -kids-sent-borders That would be up to congress to rescind the existing lawWhich is why congress should act. They won't. And even thousands of children requiring processing does not point to a porous border. Although they ARE required to be processed and appear in court, they are not required to stay in the United States. Their presence will be temporary, and expensive. Were congress not utterly dysfunctional, they would rectify the problem.  (5 hrs ago | post #254912)
