I would like to present to the supporters of prop 8 a little “story” please can you tell me how different this story is from the nonsense put out by the religious ignoramuses of our current society. If Prop 8 wins we as a nation have come nowhere and have learned nothing within the past centuries. This is an exert from Loving Vs Virginia

The plaintiffs, Mildred Loving (nee Mildred Delores Jeter, a woman of African and Rappahannock Native American descent, 1939 – May 2, 2008)[2][3] and Richard Perry Loving (a white man, October 29, 1933 – June 1975), were residents of the Commonwealth of Virginia who had been married in June 1958 in the District of Columbia, having left Virginia to evade the Racial Integrity Act, a state law banning marriages between any white person and any non-white person. Upon their return to Caroline County, Virginia, they were charged with violation of the ban. They were caught sleeping in their bed by a group of police officers who had invaded their home in the hopes of finding them in the act of sex (another crime). In their defense, Ms. Loving had pointed to a marriage certificate on the wall in their bedroom. That, instead of defending them, became the evidence the police needed for a criminal charge since it showed they had been married in another state. Specifically, they were charged under Section 20-58 of the Virginia Code, which prohibited interracial couples from being married out of state and then returning to Virginia, and Section 20-59, which classified "miscegenation" as a felony punishable by a prison sentence of between one and five years. On January 6, 1959, the Lovings pleaded guilty and were sentenced to one year in prison, with the sentence suspended for 25 years on condition that the couple leave the state of Virginia. The trial judge in the case, Leon Bazile, echoing Johann Friedrich Blumenbach's 18th-century interpretation of race, proclaimed that

"Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, Malay and red, and He placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with His arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that He separated the races shows that He did not intend for the races to mix" (this sounds reasonable)

The Lovings moved to the District of Columbia, and on November 6, 1963 the American Civil Liberties Union filed a motion on their behalf in the state trial court to vacate the judgment and set aside the sentence on the grounds that the violated statutes ran counter to the Fourteenth Amendment. Which they ultimately won.
Now if you ask the AVERAGE American today they would laugh at the thought of not allowing blacks and whites to marry, but less than a hundred years ago this was based on what was referred to back then as “the racial Integrity of marriage act” which was meant to keep the work of GOD “intact”. Now less than a hundred years later the same people are using the same GOD excuse to save “the Integrity of marriage “.

To those of you who are of Christian faith please read this.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
Your devoted fan,

more from Poirot

Thank you all for you comments!

by Poirot on

As far as DR. Laura is concerned she is a despicable human being I could write pages stating my hatred for this women and many others like her (starting with rush Limbaugh) however I added the open letter to help the readers understand the baseless accusations people make using religion. I do not believe that god gives me or anyone the right to tell another person what they can or can’t do in the privacy of their lives. Nonetheless I appreciate your comments and as this election day comes to a close i cannot wait and see if our society is moving in right direction or not. One last thing I think the biggest threat to marriage is not gay marriage but the 49% divorce rate, why don’t we ban divorces to save the integrity of marriage.

American Wife

well, my straight male

by American Wife on

better not be listening to her or else I'm in DEEP shit.  I don't even OWN anything sexy (unless you count the belly dancer's outfit I borrowed from IRANdokht).  I can't remember the last time I dusted and I don't think I even own a vacumn cleaner.  I've never seen it anyway.

Desiree... you're so right.  The bro is gay and he claims the only reason he is is because he wants to avoid the whole marriage

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

Guess who loves Dr. Laura - Straight white guys

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

She is a dream come true for them. She preaches that in marriage, women must put nothing ahead of their husbands. They have to dress sexy 24/7, keep working out even if they are injured (I've heard her say this repeatedly) and cook and clean religiously - maids are a sign of laziness.

If I were a man, I'd give her a job too. Let her spread her lies. I say lies because even if you do all that stuff, it's not a guarantee that your man won't cheat on you or lose interest, but I'm sure it doesn't hurt. Gawd I hate her.

Also, Choobi, why would you want to look at those pictures. Check out her Wikipedia and stuff. you will not believe what that woman has done and what she gets away with, considering the bull shit she screams on the radio.

I'll give her credit for one thing. She bashed Governor palin for having a slutty daughter and not taking good care of her family.


Dr. Laura nude! akh joon :O)

by Choob Yesar Gohi (not verified) on

O.K. I didn’t know she had nude pictures, but a quick search of google images, for the sake of research, revealed that there are naked pictures of her out there, but we shouldn’t hold that against her, she was young, stupid, in college, it was crazy times those years, but what we should hold against her is how much she lies nowadays. The TV show Biography had an episode about her one time that she mentioned it in one of her programs and said she agreed with everything they said about her except that she never ever burned her bra in her college days. She was very adamant about it, but then it turned out that there was witnesses that corroborated the story, so after that she kept her mouth shut about it.

Also, her doctorate degree is in physiology, not in psychology, but she keeps dispensing her advices as if she is a psychologist, and she does all of that for about 3 minutes average per each caller on the air. That’s just amazing.


Can we start a new "I hate

by desi on

Can we start a new "I hate Dr. Laura thread"?  I can't stand her either.  She's such a hypocrite.  I don't understand how someone with a phd in Physiology can dispense therapy.  Poirot, you nailed it with this one.  I hope you don't mind but I'm going to forward this to my friends.  This was awesome!

By the way I'm voting "no" on 8.  Why shouldn't gay people suffer the same misery as straight married couples?

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

Dr. Laura is like the rest of the blowhard right

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

A HYPOCRITE. She has posed naked. She has had baby out of wedlock. She's just making money off of people's misery like Choob said. 


I hate Dr. Laura

by Choob Yesar Gohi (not verified) on

I think she is a blood sucking *** who has found a way to make a living off of other people’s misery with her stupid one dimensional “do the right thing” advise for the most complicated human emotional and psychological problems.

I thought the open letter written to her in response to her stupid Leviticus none sense was hilarious.
