Short of bloody revolution, how else would one do it?


Jesus could re-write his original.

that bosnian sniper: palelizard: Wait.  Are we talking "rape" rape, or rape rape?

I think it means rape-rape, rape. The rapiest kind of rape.


I thought that was "triple-dog rape."

BMulligan: Lee Jackson Beauregard: Serious Black: The definition of what constitutes a traditional marriage has changed several times in recent history. People used to be arranged into marriages by their parents without their consent; some of these arranged marriages involved couples who only met at the wedding. Married women used to be legally barred from owning property and were financially dependent on their husbands. Men used to be able to rape their wives. Marriages used to be impossible to sever, even in cases where one spouse (predominantly the husband) was abusive towards the other.

If you really support traditional marriage, I think you should be supportive of all those traditions that we have tossed by the wayside.

The Bible thumpers having conniptions over teh ghey probably do support these ideas.

You might think so, but when I offered to purchase my neighbor's 12-year old daughter for eight goats and a fine brood mare, I got shut down cold.


My neighbors told me it's a Secretariat-sired horse or no deal regarding her daughter.

Philip Francis Queeg: Huelskamp and other tea party-backed lawmakers spoke at a monthly meeting with reporters they call "Conversations With Conservatives," which allows the reporters to quiz some of the most ardent conservatives on issues facing Congress.

Wait a second here, I though the TEA Party was only concerned with fiscal conservatism and was made up of people from all parts of the political spectrum.


Look, the Tea Party is concerned exclusively with fiscal issues; specifically the burden of large government, debt, entitlements and taxes.  Also tricorner hats and participation of the elderly in revolutionary war cosplay, but mainly fiscal issues.  The commitment to fiscal issues is paramount, in addition to Jesus and faith based governance and eliminating sodomy and teh gay, and tricorner hats and elderly cosplayers.  Also Israel, but primarily fiscal issues, Jesus, faith based governance, eliminating the gay, tricorner hats and elderly cosplaying.  Also the freedoms, not the first amendment per se, but definitely the second, but mostly fiscal issues, Jesus, faith based government, tricorner hats and elderly cosplay.  Because of the Tea Party's commitment to fiscal issues, we can't turn our back on keeping America American, by building a wall, enforcing voter IDs, literacy tests, poll taxes and property owner based voting, but really this is a movement, a nonpartisan movement, based on fiscal issues, Jesus, the freedoms, 2nd amendment remedies, faith based governance, Israel, tricorner hats and elderly cosplay and proving that Barack Obama is a muslim from Africa.  Of course republicans are supported from time to time by a nonpartisan movement, but that is because of their commitment to small government, fiscal issues, or from time to time, Jesus, freedoms, gays, Israel, birth certificates, 2nd amendment remedies, faith based governance, voting restrictions, walls for mexicans, tricorner hats and elderly cosplay.

If a Democrat ran on a platform of  small government and fiscal conservatism, and also Jesus, Israel, 2nd amendment remedies, proving Barack Obama is a Kenyan usurper, getting rid of the mexicans, restricting the right to vote, government based on faith in Jesus Christ, our lord and savior, and pissing off libtard libbies, and he ran for office while wearing a tricorner hat  and ringing Paul Revere's bells, the Tea Party would give him their full throated support.  Is that really hard to understand?

lockers: hubiestubert: 1. Burning any yeast or honey in offerings to God (2:11)
Not a huge problem nowadays.

Still a huge problem considering how often candle vigils are held. Consider lambic beer if you don't think this happens on a regular basis.


What I want to know is why more folks aren't joining this courageous young woman in protesting this abomination to God...

Lando Lincoln: dinch: Was listening to the radio this morning where some lady was being interviewed about this. Her basis for being against it (big surprise) is that the bible says marriage is between one man and one woman.

The Bible also says that we shouldn't kill each other, and yet, we have laws allowing us to do just that.

Jesus constantly spoke out about people not being greedy and yet there are many laws in our nation that allow us to be as greedy as we damn well please.

But for some weird reason we have to keep the gays from being married because THAT would really piss God off.

36.   Having sex with a woman during her period (18:19)

coeyagi: Dimensio: The Republican party can easily win this battle. They simply need to refuse to authorize a debt ceiling increase until a federal marriage amendment is enacted. In so doing, they will force the nation to accept such an amendment or suffer a completely ruined economy. True, such a position would put the nation's financial stability at risk, but Republicans in general have demonstrated their willingness to entirely destroy the nation if they are not able to treat others as second-class citizens.

I believe that such a strategy could work well for them. Any resulting damage could be blamed upon President Obama. Perhaps Representative Issa could lead an investigation to support such blame.

Jesus, man, some asshole lackey from the Hill could be reading this and taking feverish notes for his boss while spanking it to Grindr on a work laptop while a crucified Jesus hangs on the wall, berating the staffer silently.


Okay, that's COMPLETELY outside the realm of possibility.

You can't get Grindr to work on a laptop, it's solely a smartphone app!

Whoa, hold up.  There's a monthly bagger meeting where they get together with reporters to answer questions about their crazy asshattery?  Why the fark is there not a live feed on here to each and every one of these when it happens?  It's got to be like watching a monkey dressed up like a cowboy that suffered a head injury try to fark a cactus.  At first, you'd find it hilarious but after a bit it's going to be sad and your just going to want that monkey to stop before he hurts himself more.  But with each prick to the dick you know that little bastard is going jump right back on that thing and start grinding some more with the same results.
