[quote]This proves you don't have a clue about the bible. [/quote]
The bible carries no more weight in a court of law than an issue of playboy. And frankly, I think many would be more interested to see what playboy has in it. The bible is a literary/artistic piece with little other value in a c...

[quote]At most it should be a state's issue. It would be far preferable to have the government get out of marriage altogether. [/quote]
Why should it be a states issue?
Should a state be allowed to disregard the constitution because of a simple majority?
Sorry, this is not a state issue. A...

To a degree. But the ballot box does not override the constitution, unless you change the constitution first.

I'm sure he is being taken care of financially. Chances are he reached an agreement with the state or the local pd.
Who here really didn't know he was going to resign? The instant this became such a blow up media circus, it was bound to happen.

Why is everyone talking about the ticket? Who really cares? There are five dead people in one family because no one was wearing seatbelts. The ...

I Knew a guy who didn't get a vaccination for the flu last year. He got attacked by a pittbull and terribly mutilated. Cops came and refused to shoot the dog because they were afraid of catching the flu from the guy, who obviously was unprotected.
Can't say I blame them.
