Classic religious bigot.

Anderson Cooper: "I know it's been a difficult topic...."

I think any topic is difficult for that moron, I wonder if she even knew she was talking to a homersexuerl.

Thanks for posting it!

Court rejects appeal to overturn Proposition 8 ruling—case could head to Supreme Court | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

Won't be long for NC to have theirs overturned as well.

Is this lady really hearing herself speak? Apparently having your name preceded by Pastor means you can do no wrong.

Re: North Carolina passes same-sex marriage ban

This is very dificult topic/issue:

Study finds host of challenges for kids of gay parents | Fox News


But I think the author summed it up perfectly and basically states exactly how i feel.

I have a step brother and sister that are adopted and i feel like if the state becomes involved at any point (foster care) it has to take ownership in the well being of the child. Allowing a gay person or couple to adopt a kid in NYC is different than letting a gay male couple adopt a kid in NC_Skin's town of Greenville, no matter how unfortunate that may be. So i guess im trying to say discretion should be used.

If its a private adoption or international adoption i think the issue is a lot trickier. It becomes a civil rights issue vs a child welfare issue.

Study: Same-Sex Parents Raise Well-Adjusted Kids

WebMD > Faux News

All day. Any day.

I think you need to overcome your biases.

WebMD and Fox News are in different businesses, any comparison makes for a poor one. And WebMD isnt offering a "tune" (or at least shouldnt be), what you posted was merely a review/sumamry of a study by WebMD. I would hope they offer a review/summary of the study i posted, if not we should question their impartialness as a health news provider.

And that is just what the Fox News opinion piece was about, impartialness in research and reporting. Its wasnt a summary of a study, like WebMD reported 6 years ago. It was about the ethical delima of researching, studying and reporting on uncommfortable and politically incorrect topics when relating to the well-being of our childern. Im not sure if you read it but the tune of his piece can be captured with this paragraph:

Quote:
What we should avoid at all costs is silencing such research and such discussion because it is seen by some as politically incorrect. Where optimizing the well-being of children is involved, no stone should be left unturned.
Thats what i was posting about and thats what the Fox News op-ed writer was writing about.

Let me ask you something personally. In your opinion would a male teen raised by 2 dads in one of the most uneducated, ignorant and bigoted parts of NC, say Greenville*, be subject to more or less adversity than an otherwise similar kid with no gay parents? Same situation but in SoCal?

Look, I think The Gays (quoting gawker) are great. I really do. I think they are entitled to the exact same things as the non gays. But I think discretion should always be used to enforce the well being of a child who the state has taken control over. I hope one day everyone loves each other, theres peace in the Middle East, both gays and nongays cant get married and everything else that will make this world perfect, but in the meantime i think we should be realistic and use discretion.

Research shouldnt be silienced if it conflicts with political correctness. If Fair and Balanced actually means being fair and balanced than Fox News is by far the leader in presenting voices from all sides. If watching Fox News means a commitment to practice impartialality then count me in! Being open minded is a 2 way street.

* Im just teasing you about that Greenville stuff.

Re: North Carolina passes same-sex marriage ban

UPDATE: Chick-fil-A Responds to Criticism Over Gay Marriage Opposition | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

I dont agree with Chic Fil a's views but im thinking this will have an overall benefit on business. If they were public i would be buying some futures. I got to think that this rallies just as many as it alienates, and perhaps ralies many more.

Coincedently I had some chicken minies this morning and they were awesome as usual. I may even get a chicken strips spicy dressing salad for dinner tonight, just because i cant stop thinking about how good it is now.

NCSkins are you boycotting Chic Fil a over this?

Im not a Christian or anything, but i dont beleive anyone has to go to hell in their religion. I feel a big part of the faith is that everyone can go to heaven if you live accordingly. Theres no assumed balance or ratio or anything.

I dont think Chic fil a said anything about H E double hocky sticks, but just that they support traditional marriage, invented the chicken sandwich (i guess with goverment's help), and make unbelievable milk shakes.

Even though I dont agree with Chic Fil a, I think they have their right to their opinion and dont have a problem with them expressing it. Funny, Oreo came out with their ad in support of gay rights, which I support, and watching the backlash was horrific. I think both these companies have the right to express views and find the hyprocracy in this country once again sickening. You have a choice people, dont buy it. I have didnt have a problem with what Oreo did and dont have a problem with this...Chick Fila chicken sandwiches go great with Oreo cookies as a desert.
