NO degrees don't make you smart, nor do they make you dumb. However, there are very few people that go out of their way to learn, grow, and broaden their horizons outside of college(hell, they don't even do it at college at times). If college degrees weren't a good way to judge ones ability or intelligence, why do many jobs require some sort of formal degree? I know of just a couple of people that are insanely smart and knowledgeable in many areas and they have no formal degrees. They are more libertarian than anything.

Yes, I was. I'm 39 and I hate to break it to you, but there is no growing out of my "slightly radical" movement. I'm just bidding my time, sitting here sharping my pitchfork and getting the torches ready for the day we take the country back from corporate America.

It's just another form of stereotyping or bigotry, mlmpetert. I dropped out of school but I'm a MCSE, a member of MENSA (that should horrify a lot of people on here [The UK, not the US version that has lower standards]) and I am in a field of work that is supposedly populated by big brain types.

I'm continually appalled by college graduates who have credentials and no common sense, no social graces and a fundamental lack of rational thought process.

Anyway:

NY Review of Books

“Neither the external nor the internal evidence for a symbolic reference to matrimony is strong. The wedding is only the backdrop and occasion for the story, and the joining of the man and woman does not have any direct role in the narrative."

And in my opinion anyone who bases their life on the supernatural is likely to have impaired judgment.

You know. I agreed with everything you had just posted until the last sentence. Although, it is your opinion and I respect your opinion, but in my opinion, it screams of insecurity.

I think you're smart enough to figure it out, so I'm going to take the bait.

Please explain to me how my statement 'anyone who bases their life on the supernatural is likely to have impaired judgment' screams anything, let alone insecurity?That wasn't bait, it was a statement of clarity so no one was in any confusion as to where I stand.

Nope, not going to get into a pissing match with you.

It wouldn't be a pissing match, merely an exchange of ideas or points of view but I accept your retraction.

Somehow, I just don't see it being a mere exchange of ideas or points of view, because you have already painted yourself as a judgmental person who feels those who think differently than you are mentally handicapped. I don't trust someone who throws out that type of preemptive strike and then on the other hand wishes to 'merely exchange ideas and points of view.' You already set the stage to have anyone who wishes to 'exchange ideas' with you being on the defensive, and I'm not going to subject myself to that.

Anyway, this is not what this thread was supposed to be about. It was about the Marriage Amendment being passed in N.C. Feel free to go back a few pages and read my stance on the subject.

Impaired judgement is being mentally handicapped? Poor choice of words.

If your position is untenable then I understand you being loath to attempt to defend it.

If you think that the Marriage Amendment and religion are separate issues in the debate I see why you won't discuss it.

Fair enough, I thank you for your comments. We'll leave it there.

GOP Rep. Lankford Explains Why It Should Be Legal To Fire Someone For Being Gay: 'It's A Choice Issue' | ThinkProgress


Why does it seem all the conservative + religious people are stupid as hell?


It's amazing how many people think that homosexuality is a choice.
