    Nope. Conservatives pretend to be textualists, but they are just hypocrites. Look at the history of how conservative jurists have treated the Eleventh Amendment.

    The precise terms of the Eleventh Amendment bar citizens from suing states they are not citizens of. However, conservative judges have interpreted the Eleventh Amendment to apply to citizens of the state as well, EVEN THOUGH IT'S NO WHERE IN THE TEXT.

    So the narrative that conservatives are TRUE TO THE TEXT OF THE CONSTITUTION is a huge flame.

    Remember, kids. According to the liberal concept of moral relativism, every culture is equally correct no matter what they believe and it is wrong to judge any customs for being different. That makes us jingoist. Which is clearly why liberals don't get upset about middle eastern countries who put people to death for being gay. So this thread should be a fun little exercise in liberal contradictions.

    Let the hypocrisy begin!

    Can you read? I have been a long time outspoken critic of Islam in this forum. Islam is the worst and most offensive of all the religions I can think of. It is absolutely NOT OK what goes on in the Middle East.

    BTW, Divider- are you OK with what is done to gay people in the Middle East, Uganda and Nigeria? Mac-7 is celebrating and wants to see it happen everywhere. How about you? Hmm? Do you agree with him?

    Well, you're wrong. Gays in Nigerias can be put in jail without having sex.

    Still think it's nifty law that the whole world should have? Be honest, you have been so far, unlike your cohorts.

    That's a pretty tough law.

    But you can party hardy with my assurance that we will not go that far here in America.

    In fact we'll be lucky if libs are prevented from introducing innocent young children to the homosexual lifestyle in our public schools.

    It wouldn't appear to be if homosexuals would just shut up and go back to the bath houses already. You were pretty much left alone until you started to get all uppity and demand that straight people accept your sick lifestyle. That's not how acceptance works.

    Gay people do not choose to be gay. I did not wake up one day and decide I liked guys.

    Lots of straight people like us just the way we are. And no, we were not left alone, we were attacked quite viciously in the past on a regular basis.

    What happened is we finally started to fight back and not put up with crap from bigots anymore. Sorry you hate freedom and America.

    And lastly, no one wants acceptance from you- we want equal treatment under the law. I could not care less what you think of me.

    Oh yes, the gay birth defect argument.

    I wonder if pedophiles choose to be pedophiles?

    Homosexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia.

    Whether or not pedo's are born that way is an obvious question why libs pay the gay birth defect card.

    Don't be stupid. Milk is remembered because he was murdered by a homophobic bigot for his work in support of gay rights.
    Such ignorant and bigoted attempts to smear others dishonestly is a predictable tactic among the right and the reason why you people are failing to inspire voters.

    Homosexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia, which is why you cons fail every time you use it.

    No, dave, you're wrong (not for the first time (*sigh!*)... the Nazis never did command a majority vote from German voters during the entire time of the Weimar Republic. Look at these results from German national elections from 1024 - 1933: http://www.marxists.org/archive/trotsky/germany/elect.htm Oooh! Was ist das bloß für eine Überraschung? :whisper:

    Read the history, dave, and you'll see that Paul von Hindenburg appointed Hitler to be Chancellor on January 30, 1933: http://history1900s.about.com/od/1930s/a/Hitler-Appointed-Chancellor.htm

    Marriage between a man and a woman is supported by every major civilization, culture, and religion since the dawn of time. It is harmonious and consistent with every principle of evolution, biology, and human physiology that has ever been propounded. I don't care whether or not two men, two women, numerous men with numerous other men, numerous women with numerous other women, etc., etc., construct civil contracts of participation with each other. THERE is your "civil right"!

    But nothing in the history or positive development of mankind sanctions or advocates anything about homosexual "marriage". It is a living insult against, and mockery of, everything that is a fundamental part of what it means to be a normal human being.

    Uh, what?! Slavery? Sorry, dollface, I most sincerely do not know what the hell you're referring to. But, please, if you're going to retort that there's anything about homosexuality that's "normal" -- don't. Billions of years of evolutionary natural/biological history on this planet would tell you that you're dead wrong... and, in a secular society, that's got nothing whatever to do with religion....

    Well according to the bible and other religous text slavery was acceptable, and also practicedand accepted by the majority so in your eyes I ask again is slavery acceptable because all of the things you mentioned seemed to say it okay.

    No, and very honestly, her next post didn't make any logical sense to me, either. Slavery was practiced in ancient times, by Egyptians, by Persians, by Hebrews, by nearly everybody in the entire world, irrespective of just about all other factors except power and wealth. But somehow dollface wants to leverage this historical, international fact as some kind of rationale for homosexual marriage? Obviously this is all the product of a mind that transcends mine in, uh, "complexity"....

    I gave you one connection between the two.

    If there is a homosexual birth defect then why not a pedophilia gene?

    Nigeria also has a large Muslim population, the last i checked they are pretty much against homosexuality too, and in fact homosexuals are put to death in many Muslim countries. "American christian fundamentalist" had nothing to do with this so keep dreaming.

    I honestly don't know... my degree isn't in genetics. The physiological defect that seems to have most to do with homosexuality is actually found in malfunctioning olfactory bulbs while one is still an infant! Something so primal as sexual preference originating in the sense of smell seems to be how it gets started, and then blossoms into full-blown mental illness based on what was, originally, a physical defect. Isn't it a pity that medical research doesn't explore that line of research fully and then, quite possibly, homosexuality could be largely cured before it develops into all these other unfortunate traits and behaviors...? But, I guess there are some people who wouldn't want us to find a cure for cancer, either....

    'Case law". That's the Judges words instead of the Constitutions.

    You could technically say that, but that applies to everything from this issue to the end of segregation.

    The Constitution didn't say anything about forcing people into different public facilities by race, but as a society, we came to understand that it contradicted the spirit of the Constitution.

    The same is true of gay marriage bans.

    One difference is that Jim Crow was not a worldwide system that has existed for thousands of years the way that natural abhorrence for homosexuality is.
