So you would support striking laws against polygamy, which now exist in every state?

And I have visited Hildale and Colorado City many times. Nice folks, but a bit guarded. It might surprise you to learn that I have also employed some who make that community their home. (one "L" and no "S" by the way) Hildale

I am "out of it". I have said it will become law and I am not in any way active in trying to suppress that eventuality. I have actually supported the notion that such unions ought to carry reasonable legal authority and rights.

All I did herein is to explain why I believe no amount of argument will cause the left, religious environmentalists, and the homosexual community, to abandon their quest for "marriage" and instead settling for "civil unions".

I think you confuse my disapproval of conduct and agendas with hatred of the individual engaged in that conduct. I hate no man.

Some confuse these distinctly different thoughts out of ignorance. Others do so as a tactic, to destroy those with whom they disagree. Only you and God know which applies to you personally.

Speaking frankly, forcefully and unapologetically on an issue does not make one a racist, a hater of men, or wrong.

No, I imply intolerance when someone says "...should not be tolerated."

Incidentally, I would actually come close to agreeing with Pat's stance on marriage. Get government completely out of marriage and let people join however they wish. Recognize all such unions and be done with it.

I never claimed to support "diversity". In fact I think it's a crock of cess used primarily to attack anyone who dares resist the suicide of our nation.

Those who claim to revere "diversity" are the ones attacking me right now. And now that I bring that into question, the argument leans to my "tone", as if calling me a racist isn't a "tone" of it's own...

I disagree. I believe what is being questioned is my right to express my opinion. And not just questioned, but assailed. The hatred comes through loud and clear from those who call me a racist for expressing views on an issue that transcends race, and thanks to Ken's post, from quite experienced people of color themselves such as Dr. Williams. I would add towering intellects such as Thomas Sowell (a black man) to the list of those who hold my view on the cause of the black family's demise. Is he a racist too? Have you read any of his work. Are you surprised to hear me, a racist, say that a black man could be a "towering intellectual"??

I didn't quote Dr. Williams, although I find his knowledge base worthy of consideration. Nor did I find my opinion on the inner-tube.

While you have every right to take offense to whatever wish, you have ZERO right to NOT be offended. Your suggestion that opinions differing from your own (even when in the majority) should not be expressed, might offend me. And it should certainly send shivers up the spine of all who claim to support "diversity".

Scott,

Your minimum wage proposal I would disagree with. As well as probably some other things. Nevertheless, on balance your statements tell me that you have enough sense to be a net benefit were you inclined to serve in the aforementioned capacity.

I also find that you, more than almost anybody else on this blog, are willing to call balls and strikes regardless of politics. This is needed more than ever.

"MARK YOUR COMMENTS " The black family in particular has been utterly destroyed by their policies ..."

Keaton, grow up and see things for what they are. The black family HAS been decimated by socialist/ progressive policies. Look at every major city where such policies have prevailed and you will find the black community in ruins an on the verge of armed revolt against society.

And any intelligent person can see that I was NOT implicating blacks but rather the progressive/socialist policies which have destroyed them. To twist my comments as an attack on black in order to paint me in a bad light for YOUR OWN AGENDA is dismissive or ignorant of the context.

"... that is what we call a Racist." I know that I am what YOU call a racist. I've known that for some time, Keaton. Pointing out the utter failure of socialist/progressive policies in our inner cities doesn't make me popular, and it might make me a racist by YOUR standards, but not by Websters.

You can't "spread the love" by lying about the context of my statement. In fact, it proves my point that your "sides" agenda transcends it principles... if it has any.
