I've made everybody elses "short list".
Geesh I make some posts that are contrary and all of a sudden I'm the thought police? Thats kinda wierd.
Yes Lenore "people like you" you said that homo$exual people should have limits on they're rights so people who think that are "people like you".
Wait, on second thought its "people who think like you" or even more specifically "people who think like you about homo$exual rights, I stand corrected and apologize for the generality.

Corey, I see that when I open debate you have no problem coming right out on the offensive to attack my understanding yet still don't cite your sources.

So sure, the long hair moderate is the thought police...

And people wonder why Gen X is sarcastic.

Look, I don't give a dang what you post, but if I think its nonsense I'll say so. Thats what free speech is all about right? You say something, I say you're wrong, you say I'm a nut, we both go home feeling we're right.

You say that Cory failed to cite his sources, where are your sources?

I saw your post Dave. I already had the 3/8ths up, iat's on interior partition walls, and anyway by the time this old house shifts enough to crack it, I'll be dead.

And it's a WHOLE lot easier to lug up two sets of stairs and around tight 90-degree corners.

Please keep posting...

I may not agree with you all the time (and maybe I do), but you at least make us all think...This is the internet...We are here (at this site) to discuss things that are country...

Someone earlier listed a few things that he thought was 'country' and I think that everyone has that kind of list in their mind...Some things I think are country interest no one but me...Same with any subject...

I shot a nice Black Duck this morning...Is that country?...I think so, but some don't want to hear it...Lenore likes sports...Is that country?...Not to me, but to her and a lot of other people it is...

Fine by me...

I just hate the 'us vs them' stuff...

A little spirited discussion with those of opposing views is usually enlightening. And also usually enjoyable as long as both sides are on fairly equal levels intellectually. However, there is no point in trying to have a discussion with folks who resort to name calling rather than debating. I guess I've learned not to be "traumatized" by opposing points of view. Understanding the opposition and how it thinks can be a valuable lesson.
I don't expect the opposition to change my beliefs, but understanding the thinking helps refine my own. Hopefully the end result is a little increased wisdom for me and my opposition.

I agree with Screaminghollow!! Opposing view points should bring out an intellectual debate, and not name calling. An intellectual debate enlightens everyone. You always learn when you begin to see that there are two sides to every point of view.

For example, politically, on this board, I'm a minority. I am a liberal, and have always been, and I think I always will be. I have had debates with several people, including Screaminghollow. I find their viewpoints interesting, even if I don't agree with them. TO my knowledge, we've never gotten into name calling, just debating.

My long winded point is, the more viewpoints we see on this forum, the more interesting it is, as long as we maintain our maturity, which we almost always do. :^)

Actually this is what I said and what you said.
I believe you you judged me and how I think incorrectly..

~Lenore Posted 11-20-2003 at 06:55:35 [Reply] [No Email]

I am not afraid or think "it" will rub off on me.
I had a very close friend who was homos*xual,
I refuse to say he was "gay", he was unhappy and confused.
I saw him drink himself to death.
He was smart and handsome and a high school football hero.
He was also miserable and drank to try to keep that feeling away.
On a fishing trip on our Trinity River, he drowned.
If he had not been drunk, he would have survived.
It makes me very sad to think of it even now.
The only thing I fear about them is the influence they have on the liberal media and politicians.

So obviously it was the people accepting him that made him drink and be unhappy.
It didn't have anything to do with people who thought he was "broken" and needed to be fixed?
It didn't have anything to do with people like you saying that if he met a man and was happy with him and maybe wanted to spend his life with him that it couldn't be recognized as being married?

Ludwig, I never tried to tell him how to live his life. When I first met him I was an athiest and did not care how anyone lived. I was just his friend. We went to movies together and ate out and did fun things together. He is the one who told me he was unhappy. He was the one who cried on my shoulder. He was the one who told me he was concidering living an as*xual life. He never did have a "one man" relationship. He went to the bars and had picked up men or was picked up. He was like I said handsome, intelligent, "Successful" and unhappy.

After he heard of my becoming a Christian, he did not come by much. I did tell him Jesus loved him and I did, too. I did tell him that my life was changed and I was happy. That was the last conversation I had with him before he died in fact.

I think some of his happiest and most peaceful times were spent with me. I put no pressure on him and he could relax and just enjoy life when we were together. We had a real friendship, platonic and special.
