Somacandra: Mikey1969: So you skipped this part, I see:Yeah, I skipped it to make him sounds less alarmist. I was being charitable. People aren't getting hosed down by water cannons in the street during gay pride parades like they did trying to sit at lunch counters back in the day. Leaders like Harvey Milk aren't getting assassinated these decades. His comparison of Little Rock to Salt Lake City is a stretch, to say the least. All that happened in IA were two Supreme Court justices losing their jobs. If there have been riots and assassinations, please correct me.

Somacandra: FTFA: And just as the bigots of the '50s and '60s were trounced by the president, so, too, will Utah's doltish homophobes surely be rebuffed by President Barack Obama if need be. Still, the Utah insurrection raises an uncomfortable point about the limits of judicial power in the United States. Our federal courts are given very few means to enforce their rulings. Judge Robert Shelby has no army and no police force to insist that Utah follow his order and defend against those who would sabotage it; he has only his own capital-and the executive.Apart from the confusing term "capital," (social capital?) this is a bit alarmist. I disagree with the views the event promoted but this is not an "insurrection." I see no one wielding arms of force. This is a fierce protest to be sure, but the event he's referring to seems well within First Amendment cultural norms. I'm no lawyer, but this hardly reaches the level of "fighting words" or "imminent danger." They are calling on sheriffs to take action, certainly. There was also some sort of legal lecture on nullification that was the center of the presentation (according to the embedded video), and that is certainly political speech which had long enjoyed Constitutional protection.
edmo: ArcadianRefugee:  Same-sex marriage endorses masturbation.a) how?b) so what?Mormons absolutely freak about masturbation. It's not allowed. They counsel their youth about it constantly, even giving them stupid advice like "don't look at yourself." Your local stake Bishop will quiz you twice a year about whether you been masturbating. I don't know what happens once they get married.But that's where the sign comes from.
netizencain: Wow, let's all comment about some shiat from 2006!

hobnail: Does anyone think the fact that the couple on the poster is mixed-race is deliberate? (And ironic, too, since the same arguments they used to make about miscegenation are being made right now about same-sex marriage).
Huck And Molly Ziegler: I'm guessing constant worry about masturbation is what keeps the Mormon Lunatic Complex wound up so tight emotionally, yet so full of energy that its adherents can endure their bike rides, can constantly support their made-up "doctrine" and can obsess over genealogical research.
Cagey B: ArcadianRefugee: ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Being able to reach your junk endorses masturbation[global3.memecdn.com image 480x332]The T-Rex is terrifying enough that it could have coerced smaller dinosaurs into giving it handies at will. Which is pretty funny to imagine, so I guess your graphic is correct after all.
brap: Thanks for giving credence to some senile dingdong standing on a corner with a sign. I almost took a picture of the 300 lb. dude in the Lady Liberty costume promoting Liberty Tax Preparation and may well have if the guy didn't look like he could beat me into a fine paste for doing so.Pick your battles and your promotions.
rynthetyn: Well, I think we may have actually reached the bottom of the barrel on stupid arguments.
TuteTibiImperes: Remember that whole kerfuffle back in the Clinton administration when Madeleine Albright suggested that teaching about masturbation during sex ed classes might help cut down on STD transmission and unwanted pregnancies?
dj_bigbird: I thought marriage (in general) led to masturbation.
