I’ll take Obama and you can have Harper….
Hay Christianity, I would feel more comfortable admitting I’m one of you if you didn’t stop warping so many facts, that and for some reason you guis seem to believe that marriage was YOUR sacred invention? Well, something that was instituted by the Christian God?
UHM, DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT? REALLY?
I hear so many people say that marriage is a Christian institution and that’s part of why OMG TEH GAYS should not be allowed into the Chrstian Holy Union Club, but we already let in so many people who say, don’t believe in any God at all, or believe in a different God or even Gods, or just don’t care and want to live a good life with people they love, but it’s OK for them because they want to marry someone of the opposite sex, ya? BUT ALL THAT STUFF IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THEM HEATHENS LIKE TEH GAYS. What’s the dealio with that, anyway?
Honestly I can’t say I KNOW when marriage came around as a social concept but it was so damn long ago and things have changed so freaking much, before it was perfectly Christian to have multiple wives (go to Utah and it still is!) despite you guis saying that’s one of the unholy things gay marriage will also bring (you mean bring it BACK?!) and it’s pretty obvious that tons of cultures had some sort of marriage idea that kind of got melded together as cultures melded together into the weird mess it is now, so I just see it really silly to try to play the whole “MARRIAGE IS A CHRISTIAN INSTITUTION” card. THEN WHY CAN JEWISH PEOPLE GET MARRIED? OR HINDU? OR ATHEIST? Why did all these other cultures have something super-similar if it wasn’t called that?!
Maybe I don’t see this point brought up because it’s so bloody OBVIOUS, I dunno.
If anything, at this point, it’s a government-sanctioned institution. AND WHILE I KNOW THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL INTERNETS, I know most of the gay marriage arguments are in the US, and I thought that that government was supposed to be secular. Or at least not have an established religion…
…Supposed to be…
Oh how I wish religion and government were not in bed together…..
Google has regenerated…still not entirely sure I like it….
huzzah! my internet is back! I can now actually livestream Mark of the Rani HERE
I’ll start from the beginning…..
As much as I enjoy making Terrible jokes, I really do adore the idea of the Doctor being asexual or at least mostly asexual. I know that that probably seems ridiculous, like I’m trying to ‘claim him for my team’ or whatever, but no matter what the intentions are, it’s nice to see a protagonist who doesn’t have much (or any) interest in sex — in a show in which friendships are the paramount relationships.
In fact, I am wondering whether this isn’t (a) why there are so many aces in the Doctor Who fandom compared to… well… anywhere else that I’ve come across, and (b) one of the reasons why Ten is my least favorite Doctor.
I mean, besides his general douchecanoe behavior.
drove myself home by myself for the first time tonight….and only got lost once.
Please, guys. Just vote ‘yes’. I won’t write another essay. I won’t say anything more. Just vote ‘yes’.
Poll-bomb signal boost.
I’m not against it, but what’s up with the sudden rise of Nigel Thornberry?
