I'm a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, but this article is baloney. You get all upset about Sharia law, but you insist on pushing your Bible on me. Guess what? It's perfectly possible to be a conservative without subscribing to medieval superstitious nonsense.

Seriously. Thank you. I read about 3 sentences of this buffoon's "column" (used very loosely here, because actual journalists with a brain write columns and not theocratic, brainless drivel) and I could only think to laugh out loud that people actually think like this clown. But then I get scared, because people actually think like this clown. Oh well, as long as they stay at Liberty U and down South, that's fine. They can continue to complain about wasted tax dollars, education crumbling, all that good stuff, when the southern "Christians" (also need to use the term Christian loosely when talking about Southern fundamentalists) are largely responsible for that. Enjoy the Creationist museum though you frauds!

Believe it or not, Dan. Jesus even loves you! In spite of your rant against a man who is a far better human being that you are, or may ever be.

You say this as you scurry into the darkness. It's tough facing up to the Truth but once you do, you come out of the dark shadows and into the Light. I hope you become enlightened.

A Tally does not "hope you become enlightened." He holds a permanent, unappeasable grudge against you because some trouble maker accuses you of heinous things like drawing a cartoon of Mohammed.

You want to compare this to any Christian fighting fundie. It is to laugh, then to cry.

But we won't tax or kill you if you do not believe (unlike Sharia law). Try to convert from Islam - death sentance. Convert from Judism or Christian beliefs, the results are on your head only. The Pope does not send out hit squads. So, no one is forcig the bible down your throat.

When you describe those who don't adhere to your faith as the "spiritual forces of evil" . . . it tends to belies your assurances.

Tell that to gay citizens in this country. Who ARE taxed and required to shoulder the same responsibilities as other citizens, but with NONE of the equal rights and protections. Even to be more enabled in their responsibilities. And some gay people ARE killed outright by casual violence. Even if such violence isn't committed by the gov't anymore, there are plenty of other things that threaten the BASIC civil rights of gay people. All of it driven by religious based animus. ALL of it. People of faith CHOOSE it, or not. THAT is freedom.

how many gays are killed by sodomy and drugs and suicide? you have all the rights I have! I can't marry another guy or a goat either. You can marry a woman and stop sodomizing!

None of the equal right? You know you sound silly? Murders of gay people account for a tiny percentage of murders. Get real.

Hey Du-Du,

What in the F are you yapping about?

You can't say gays have NONE of the equal rights. They are protected by the same Constitution every American is.

"And some gay people ARE killed outright by casual violence."

First of all, define "casual violence". By definition, violence can't be casual! I guess the closest we come is Charles Manson and his cult "casually" comitting murder on non-gay victims.

"...there are plenty of other things that threaten the BASIC civil rights of gay people."

Again, look at the Constitution, that defines BASIC rights. I don't see any rights for heterosexuals or homosexuals faux-humping eachother in parades, yet the only ones allowed to have those kinds of displays are the gays.

The upcoming elections aren’t about Republican vs. Democrat; conservative vs. liberal; Romney vs. Obama. Not entirely, at least. They’re much bigger than all that.

November signifies nothing new. It’s a microcosm of a much greater struggle – one that predates mankind. These elections are about truth vs. lies; light vs. darkness; good vs. evil.

Ultimately, November represents a high point – or a low point if you prefer – in the epic clash between diametrically opposed and fundamentally incompatible worldviews.

On the one hand, we have the Judeo-Christian worldview. It is both informed by and fully acknowledges absolute...
