I believe, Occam's, it is an attempt to normalize all sexual perversions via an incremental process of desensitizing the culture to them. A strategy from Hell.
Chuckling to myself. Derek writes: ". . .we were sent messages of how we were the problem with the world. . . those of us who didn’t understand the empowering nature of a.s.s-showing and shaking for money." Generally, feminist don't believe that men are worthy of respect but are hormone slaves to be used for the feminist's own purposes. Ergo, feminists exploit the weaknesses of men. This is, of course, never admitted by feminists since to them only men can be chauvinists. Only men use and abuse women. It's never the other way around. Feminism is about power and self aggrandizement. That is why Beyoncé is an icon of feminism. She is (or at least appears to be) wealthy and powerful enough to afford the prices of her choices. And her sycophants imagine themselves to be standing in her high heels.

Human life does exist in the very earliest stages of life. The zygote has his own distinct DNA and is a growing, respirating organism, same as ny other huma being. You don't need lungs to respirate. Respiration is the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide across the cell walls.

Now that you mention it, Flattus, there is a similarity. People in concentration camps are prisoners of the state. People in homosexual unions are prisoners of sin. Jesus came to set the prisoners free. He does and he will, wherever they are. But many people are comfortable in their sin and do not wish to leave the prison. Such neither believe that eternal misery will eventually result from their choices nor that any misery they may be experiencing presently as a result of their choices is caused by the choices they make.

Seems a moot point to me, Eric. Isn't pagan a general term that includes atheists. Anyway, a god doesn't have to be be Zeus, Odin, Shiva or whatever. A person can consider themselves to be their own god. A lot of atheists worship the god Science.

How is refusing to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding or refusing to photo shoot it interfering with the rights of homosexuals? Is it reasonable to force a Christian baker or photographer to do the job?

There is a formula to figure out the benefit of dollar cost averaging. I don't know it off the top of my head but you can probably do an internet search to find it.

Mr. Gunderson, I'm perplexed. You say you don't believe in Asset Allocation. However, investing in any vehicle, be it stock, bond, commodity, real estate or anything else is, by definition asset allocation. It sems you may mean that you do not believe in asset diversification being as how you claim you are 100% allocated to stocks. However, there are reputable financial advisors who advocate asset diversification as the best way to capture market gains while minimizing market losses. Furthermore, there is back testing research that indicates such strategies do just that. You claim you have been fully invested in the market since it bottomed out in March 2009. If weren't fully invested in it prior to that I congratulate you on having been lucky enough to time the market and dump your money in to it when it was at a trough. the odds say people who try to time the markets usually fail. But you suggest you follow trends and move in or out of the market as you see those trends developing and before they hit a peak or trough. Perhaps that works very well for you. But I would like to know the track record of your investment strategy.

The producers of this show are gay activists. Of course they want to erode healthy boundaries. If the entire culture is perverted no on is going to think twice about practicing homosexuality.
