Posted on 11/02/12 at 10:31 am in response to Marriage equality is not a slippery slope

His entire column was an explanation why accepting same sex marriage does not mean we have to accept all the other circumstances you envision. Thus, he's already given you his answer.

As opposed to less fundamentalist denominations, like the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, the ELCA,

Fundamentalist mega-churches are definitely growing faster than those listed above, as well as others. But the secularists/non-affiliated category is growing even faster.

You're making a false assumption that marriage rights are a zero sum game.

The supposed benefits to children are not harmed by the existence of same sex marriage anymore than they are by the existence of infertile or childless by choice couples of the opposite gender.

Posted on 10/26/12 at 11:10 am in response to Marriage ad unfairly links amendment to school curriculum issue

“It puts parents and pastors in a difficult situation when they teach the truth of marriage at home and in church, but then their kids are taught something entirely different at school. This undermines parental rights and causes confusion for children."

One problem with this line of argument is that it applies to anything: evolution? Blood transfusions? Inter-racial or inter-faith marriages? The list is endless.

If your values are really that fragile, perhaps you should be home...

What does her political party affiliation (if any) have to do with this?

When they voted on this (and on the voter restriction amendment) theMNGOP insisted this was non-partisan.

Given the ubiquity here of the other Thomas Swift, I'm surprised Minnpost didn't include some kind of disclaimer.

This Tom Swift is the author of "Chief Bender's Burden," (about the Minesotan American Indian hall of Fame pitcher).

I'm sure that Thomas Swift has given Tom no small amount of heartburn.

There are no striking musicians. They've been locked out by management.

But I doubt we agree on which half they were alienating.

I dropped my subscription after they hired the conservative hack Niall Ferguson.

(and of course, the photoshopped "Diana at 50" cover story really had no political leanings. It was just horrid)

Posted on 10/17/12 at 04:20 pm in response to Brodkorb: Turnout, not values, is aim of marriage amendment

Brodkorb didn't say anything we didn't already know, and wasn't said by us at the time of the legislative vote.

And the Republican party would be virtually extinct without the Southern Racist White vote, which admittedly, until Johnson signed the Civil Rights act, largely voted Democratic (note the proper form of the name). Although I will aver that, since Nixon, it is the Republicans that more actively pander to them.

So it's a wash, I guess.
