Bill904 SO you are an Uncle Tom atheist who is fine with religious fundamentalists passing laws imprisoning gays? Or stripping women of reproductive rights? Or banning adulter material, including porn? Banning sex toys? Because all of those things are the result of religion!! If you don't see the power and influence and negative results of religion, I am shocked you had the intellect to become an atheist. By the way, are you SE Cupp? Self hating atheist.

An Uncle Tom, self-hating atheist? Please tell me you're joking. I'm not an atheist, I'm an agnostic, but I doubt someone of your refined intellect would understand the difference. Anyway, this comment section is dead, so it's not worth responding further. Are you sure 14 year olds should have access to porn and sex toys?

In response to your last sentence, that's what parents are for - and it's up to them to decide, as all do. You're arguing against something that doesn't even exist, and never will.

Hint: it would be legal in most of them and the desperate could get a frickin' bus ticket.

As for laws imprisoning gays, what country are you talking about? America doesn't imprison gays and hasn't, again for decades. And it isn't going to and virtually no Fundamentalist favors such a thing.

Jerome, the monsters under your bed simply don't exist.

Oh how silly.

The laws imprisoning gays, preventing 'reproductive rights', banning porn or sex toys are laws virtually all Americans supported for the majority of its existence. The fact that some people still support such laws - virtually all of which have been overturned, voted out of existence or haven't been enforced in several decades - is hardly the power and influence of which you speak.

Are you having trouble getting porn or having an abortion? I recommend Google maps for the former and pretty much the whole rest of the internet for the latter.

As for abortion, I'm a conservative who thinks it should be legal but be left to the several states to decide if it should be legal within their borders.

You have a right to talk about sex when ylur ex leader had sex in the oval office and a member of homeland had to give up her job lver sex. What a fool you are with your note here.

Who would have thought that God and Jerusalem would become controversial issues at this year's Democratic National Convention?

Previous Democratic Party platforms had mentioned God and referred to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. After both were initially missing from this year's platform, someone apparently realized that this was likely to raise questions about Democrats that they could ill afford to have raised in an election year.

So the convention faced a vote on whether to restore God and Jerusalem to their party's platform. Rather than risk a roll-call vote from the delegates, the chair called for a voice...
