It seems odd to me that Washington doesn't allow gay marriage.
Then again, neither does California. It's a fucking weird world.
It's going to happen. They have been taking baby steps to cover all the bases. The House will sign it, so will the governor.
Opponents have already said they will try to repeal the bill through the initiative process, so we will likely get to see exactly how many bigots our state has.
Congrats Biv. Who's the lucky fella?
I hear its Kirk Strong.
Heeeeeey. I don't eat da poo poo.
So you're what they call a "top".
Weirdly enough the Mexican-Americans in California were instrumental in stopping gay marriage, since most of them are obnoxiously Catholic. Even a lot of the Republicans here voted to legalize it, since many are pretty moderate.
Blacks were also instrumental in keeping gay marriage from becoming a reality in California.
The black church's stance against gay marriage is just one of the reasons why I have a huge problem with them.
What are the other reasons?
I'll get back to you after the back-up.
Considering how important religion and the church are in the black community, I feel they're not doing enough to address certain issues. The problems that I'm referring to are the ones that are caused by members of the black community themselves. I truly believe if the religious leaders got off their asses and started using their sermons to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions, it would make a huge difference.
But most only seemed concerned with making sure they get the people's 10%.
I hope Jane Sterland was T-boned by a bus full of gays on the way home.
I don't know about that. The troublemakers (meaning the full-blown niggers) are predominately younger people and religion is generally on the decline among young folks of all demographics. You won't see many thugs in church. Thugs also tend to frown on any attempt to prevent or persuade them from doing whatever the fuck they want to do. Am I mistaken?
"Jesus, out there in the cold / Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?"
The sermons don't have to be held in church. They can go out into community and address them that way. They can make sure the message gets across to the parent(s) of the younger children before they become a thug. They can make it known that being an teenage mom is something not to be proud of and/or a goal in life.
Its something that's not going to change overnight and its only a small part of the plan. But you have start to somewhere and I feel this is how you do it.
Changing the next generation could definitely work. I thought you meant trying to directly influence the current generation of fuck-ups.
That's good news.
Only 43 left to go.
