re: So when does the population of Ireland become extinct? - Joshjrn
[quote]I believe marriage was created as a physical and spiritual union of two people, one man and one woman. I believe that core to the definition is that the union is between a man and a woman, not a man and a man, a woman and a woman, a man and a goat, a woman and a radio, or any other combinatio...

re: Washington (state) environmentalists fail in revoking GOP senator's degree. - Joshjrn
While I wouldn't agree with them, this would at least make sense if he had an honorary degree. Trying to revoke a degree someone earned is asinine. ...

re: Business karma? - Joshjrn
I'm not sure I agree with ignoring him. That said, I always prefer to trade favors than dollars. I find the former far more difficult to come by than the latter. However, he seems willing to trade neither, so I'd be polite, but firm. ...

[quote]Agreed. I believe discrimination against homosexuals in the context of marriage is okay and even necessary to the sanctity of the institution.[/quote] Let's stick to what I just quoted. This issue is complicated enough without further muddying the waters :lol: Could you elaborate on why...

[quote]Not all discrimination is illegal or immoral. I'm fine with having distinctions and limitations in life.[/quote] I agree, and so am I. I simply think they should be acknowledged and defended as such. Trying to circumvent debate by refusing to call it what it is is counterproductive. ...

[quote]Yes, when I say i prefer a Cabernet to a Zinfandel or a Lexus to an Acura. But... You know that one cannot use the term "discriminatory" in an argument like this without the connotation of malice. You're trying to be be cute. I stick by my assertion that there is no malicious disc...

re: So when does the population of Ireland become extinct? - Joshjrn
And let's be clear about something: my side has practically already won the war. If you somehow think the burden of proof remains with us, you've got nothing to do but sit around until your side of the argument fades into obscurity. If you'd actually like to turn the tide, you might want to be a bit...

[quote]Not in the manner you are using the term discriminatory. Not in the sense that there is malice behind it. I understand the direction you are trying to steer this exercise and it simply doesn't work.[/quote] Malice isn't necessary for discrimination. We discriminate against children in the ...

re: The sec tournament bracket is so flawed - Joshjrn
The purpose of the tournament isn't to crown the best team. The purpose of the tournament is to give bubble teams one last shot to make a case for the postseason. Once you realize that, the format makes perfect sense. ...

[quote]Then the definition of anything is "discriminatory." A brick is a brick, not a paving stone, but that's "discriminatory." Etcetera, etcetera. [/quote] Now we are getting somewhere. Definitions are, by their very nature, discriminatory. We are deciding what can, and what can't, claim a part...

re: So when does the population of Ireland become extinct? - Joshjrn
[quote]Because that is what it was. To include something beyond it's defined characteristic makes it "other." Not discriminatory, "other."[/quote] All you are saying is that marriage is, structurally and from the beginning, discriminatory. There's nothing inherently wrong with that. You simply ha...

re: So when does the population of Ireland become extinct? - Joshjrn
[quote]Exactly. Why should we "discriminate" if 5 males and 7 females want to marry each other? Cue "I'm fine with that" responses for internet open mindedness cred.[/quote] I am fine with it, though there were several interesting arguments in Hodges distinguishing polyamorous marriages from ...

[quote]It wasn't intended to be a man and woman? That's what it is. There was no choice, therefore, nothing to discriminate amongst.[/quote] For the sake of argument, I'm agreeing with your premise that it was intended to be a man and woman. From the beginning, two people who were otherwise legal...

re: So when does the population of Ireland become extinct? - Joshjrn
[quote]It's not discriminating. I'm not choosing or showing a preference amongst a group. Marriage was constructed for a male to marry a female, period. [/quote] So your argument is that marriage was constructed to be discriminatory, so it isn't discriminatory. Points for being interesting, I sup...

[quote]Race is not the same as sex. Marriage is a construct of man that is between a male and female. Race only mattered in certain areas, the US in your example. Sex has always mattered.[/quote] That's a different argument entirely. If you want to say that discrimination against homosexuals in t...
