(Columbus Dispatch)   Ohio mayor resigns because she's old fashioned. Old fashioned as in harassing an openly gay police officer, discussing his sexuality with other city employees and wanting to run his partner out of town   (dispatch.com) divider line 16

It's about time someone had the moral integrity to stand up to these Godless Sodomites! Praise Jeesus!

Next thing you know, they'll be allowing them around children. Don't you people know that the AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION, a group without reproach and of impeccable integrity, have found that GAys molest children at a rate one MILLION times that of Straight, God Fearing Americans?

All you libtard FARK sodomites can take your welcome to fark and DIAF, too.

ciberido: ifarkthereforiam: When people say "I may be old fashioned", they tend to use that as some sort of weird justification for some sort of bigotry or puritanical meddling.

It's a kind of strawman argument.  The people who say I may be old fashioned"  are assuming that the people who disagree with them do so MAINLY because they see traditional views as "old fashioned," i.e., newfangled ideas are better than old ideas merely BECAUSE they are newer.

Or to put it another way, "I may be old fashioned" essentially means "I know you disapprove of my opinions BECAUSE they are old fashioned, but I really do have good reason to believe what I do."

It's a strawman inasmuch as the real objection to their "old fashioned" views has nothing to do with their age.


Don't be ridiculous. Nobody drinks an old fashioned with a straw.

Gay people do not have children.  They build landing strips for gay martians.  Get it right, Stuart.

Not everybody groks gay martians.

MisterLoki: "Kyle Calendine would lay down his life for anyone in need," said Proffitt, who has been police chief since 2000 in Pomeroy, about 100 miles southeast of Columbus. "This is a win for Kyle, for our department and for the gay community. It lets people know that no matter what, we're all in this together."

On the other hand, the police chief sounds kind of awesome.


Yup.  I'm kind of surprised, I figured that the power structure in a small town like that would be very tight knit and insular.

Good for him, always good to see a leader who stands by his man.

/well, not his "man", just one of the guys who works under him
//well, not "works under him" but follows his orders
///well, not follows his ... oh fark it

skinink: ""She stated 'I don't like a Queer working for the Village, I might be old-fashioned, but I don't like it.'" Proffitt wrote in the statement. "
But is she fine with transsexuals, bisexuals, BDSMs, homo sapiens and furries working for the Village?


She just wants good, old-fashioned heterosexual Village People.

Whenever I have trouble pitching a tent in a gay campground, I find it helps to have a buddy drive in a peg or two.

CallMeGomer: ciberido: CallMeGomer: kimwim: Nasty old biddy. She needs to either get with the times, or stay home crocheting sweaters for great grandchildren.

Get with the times? So this whole "Yea for the Gays" is just a trendy thing? Whew, glad to hear that.

The idea behind the term "progressive" is that there is a "forward" and a "backwards" to history.  Societies move forward, for the most part, though sometimes progress is slower and sometimes it's faster, and sometimes there is backwards movement.  But the general idea is that the whole world is, on average more enlightened, tolerant, peaceful, and free today than it was 500 years ago,  and 500 years from now our world will be, on average, more enlightened, tolerant, peaceful, and free than it is today.

Conversely, the meaning behind the name "Conservative" is that the past was better than the present, and all efforts must be made to slow this decline into decadence.

In short, Progressives look to the future with hope, while Conservatives look to the future with dread.

So from a Progressive point of view, accepting homosexuality as normal, nothing to be ashamed of, is progress, a sign that society is moving forward to where it ought to be, and while it is POSSIBLE that society could reverse this change, it is neither likely nor desirable.

From a socially Conservative point of view, accepting homosexuality as normal, nothing to be ashamed of, is  decay, a loss of something good and vital we once had but are losing.  And while it is possible that we could "recover" or "restore" our moral values (e.g., that homosexuality is depraved), it is sadly unlikely.

Neither side really sees societies evolving acceptance of homosexuality as a "fad," but rather as nigh inexorable change.  It's just a question or whether you cheer this change on or deplore it.

Whew! Now that is a reply seldom seen. Would love to discuss with someone like you further. Homosexuality has gone in and out of vogue over the centuries, I wonder why this ...


Now kiss.

"He said that when he called Calendine earlier today to tell him the mayor had resigned, he tried to make his message clear: "His partner, Harold, is welcome to stop by our department and have lunch anytime." "
