  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    So just because someone wouldn't make a good parent, you would deem them "bad" and put them in prison without a second thought? How sad. :( You do realize that if you just put them in a rehab clinic instead of a prison, many of them would actually be able to recover from whatever is making them such an unfit parent, don't you?

    This reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode. Some zealot goes around telling everyone that god is going to punish all the evil people at exactly 4:00. He's going to shrink them all down to two feet tall. At 4:00, the zealot is quite suprised to find he is the only one who has been shrunk.

    That's exactly how the zealot sounded the entire episode. That is until he found himself to be onlt two feet tall.

    Sounds like you're confusing the Twilight Zone with Dr. Who.

    It's a horrible law. What about impotent couples?

    The most ironic thing ever - a soldier goes to war, is shot you know where, becomes incapable of having children. He cannot get married for more than 3 years suddenly.

    Hilarity ensued.

    Nota bene: the whole point is not to make a law, but to make a point. The activists are likely just trying to point out how ridiculous it is to establish a legal standing that denies certain rights/perks to some while maintaining them for others, and all without firm physical justification as to why the denial is allowable.

    It is only on the table to make people think about their personal stance against gay marriage.

    It is kind of like an argumentum ad absurdum. Take the argument to it's logical extreme and see if it is still defensible or see how it can be abused or made ridiculous.

    AMEN!

    Washington is no longer the Evergreen State - we are "THe Initiative State."

    One particularly sinister minister is trying to get an initiative on the ballot to repeal the recently passed equal rights legislation. (It does not look like he's going to make it... :clap:)

    This no-child initiative, I believe, comes partly in response to the attempts of the religious right to legislate their agenda on the rest of the state.

    It's kind of the whole point. The Christian argument against gay marriage is that God intended for people to procreate, and marriage is specifically intended to foster procreation. They follow this with the argument that since a gay couple can't procreate, they shouldn't be allowed to marry.

    Hence, by proposing that all marriages must be for procreation - and finding opposition by the same people who are against gay marriage - it shows that the Christian argument is hollow, as it is more than the non-reproduction which is behind the anti-gay marriage movement.

    It quite ingengious, isn't it? This bill forces the anti-gay-marriage crowd to take a stance that is the opposite of the primary argument against gay marriage.

    If procreation is the purpose of marriage and therefore excludes gay marriage it only follows that procreation is a requirement for marriage. Right?

    I support gay marriage and the tactic of introducting this Bill to show people that say "marriage is for procreation" are liars.
