    The woman has no problem issuing marriage licenses. She has a problem with issuing fake marriage licenses. She is grounded in the reality that marriage is not the same as sodomite couplings (ugh).

    Just shows the thug government for what it is, a brute beast forcing people to embrace whatever lie it deems "truth". No surprise, as it acts as if people can switch from being male to female or female to male and by golly, we are all supposed to BELIEVE A LIE or else we are haters.

    I am probably just not understanding your argument here so please excuse me if I am way off base. I am sensing an inconsistency of sorts.

    If such things as homosexual marriage and "sex-change" are indeed "fake" or "lies" or are untrue or not real, then there would appear to be no need to deal with them at all. There is no need to address things that don't exist.

    However, if what you really mean by those terms is that you disagree with things (homosexual marriage, "sex-change") that you acknowledge do exist, then I would suggest that you dispense with those terms (fake, lies, etc.) because I think the use of those terms merely makes your position less coherent.

    In other words, if you are saying what I think you are saying, you could put it as follows: "The government has begun using the term 'marriage' in an overly broad fashion, a fashion which would encompass a legal union between two persons of the same sex. I believe that usage amounts to a perversion of the term marriage, a term which necessarily includes only legal unions between two persons of opposite sexes."

    I understand why you want to use the terms "lie" and "fake" (all attacks are based upon negative associations), but I think the term "perversion" will be just as effective for your purpose.

    But, again, I may be completely missing what you're attempting to do here. If so, I apologize for having wasted your time.

    Thanks for posting that. It had to be horrific. After 4 years of an ugly war and a difficult election, Lincoln's assassination had to be very difficult for most everyone. There was much at stake. Clearly, Booth's calculations about public reaction were wrong.

    As for central_va, I don't want to reconstruct him. I think he's just fine the way he is. In fact, I like him. Several times, I've seen some flashes of humor, even though he probably thinks that interferes with this rebel image that he's been working on. I know he likes "Dixie" and I'll just bet he likes some other music, too. We'd get along. In my book, he's okay.

    Geez, I didn't mean for you to go all to pieces over this.

    Just because you don't agree with what Davis said when he got older and more mature doesn't mean that you don't still have his earlier statements to cherish. Maybe the time has come for you to wander through your ideas and bury the dead ones, just like Davis suggested:

    " Before you lies the future, a future full of golden promise, a future of expanding national glory, before which all the world shall stand amazed." - Jefferson Davis (1887)

    Seize that future, that golden promise. It's part of your American heritage! ;-)

    Six years after his 1881 speech to the Mississippi legislature, in 1887, Jefferson Davis called for an end to rancor and bitter sectional feeling and for a reunited country:

    "The past is dead; let it bury its dead, its hopes, and its aspirations. Before you lies the future, a future full of golden promise, a future of expanding national glory, before which all the world shall stand amazed. Let me beseech you to lay aside all rancor, all bitter sectional feeling, and to take your places in the ranks of those who will bring about a consummation to be wished—a reunited country." - Jefferson Davis (1887)

    Just as Lincoln and Davis predicted, the country reunited - "One nation, under God, indivisible."

    And, slavery is gone - gone for good!

    I told you that Abe was a powerful dude. ;’)

    He was a very persuasive man. His second inaugural address called for an end to bitterness and disunion:

    "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

    It is said that Jefferson Davis spent many of his final years studying the speeches and writings of Lincoln. And, it is clear that in the end Abe won him over. In 1887, Davis spoke the following words:

    "The past is dead; let it bury its dead, its hopes, and its aspirations. Before you lies the future, a future full of golden promise, a future of expanding national glory, before which all the world shall stand amazed. Let me beseech you to lay aside all rancor, all bitter sectional feeling, and to take your places in the ranks of those who will bring about a consummation to be wished—a reunited country."

    It was as if Davis was channeling Lincoln. What a wonderful country we have - "one nation, under God, indivisible".

    The assassination had to have been a terrible shock. We had never before had a president murdered. I'm sure that there were many unfortunate reactions. There are still a few screwballs running around thinking that the struggle is not over. Of course, for decades there were Japanese soldiers still trying to eke out an existence in Pacific jungles.

    As for the excuse by slaveholders that they couldn't work outdoors, they would have had no explanation for the fact that most white Southerners were in fact working outdoors. It's just that, as a class, the slaveholders had over time lost confidence in their ability to work outdoors. Dependency leads to indolence and the governing (slaveholding) class had become almost entirely dependent upon their slaves for their daily needs. There were some exceptions and some exceptional people (e.g., Robert E. Lee), but for the most part the South's leadership was weak and the decision-making poor.

    And, history shows little mercy for the weak.

    Thank you for sharing that.

    I would say that admiration for Lincoln will continue to grow, but the fact is that it is more or less universal now. I have seen his image all over the world.

    And, of course, the vast majority of Confederate soldiers did not think of themselves as fighting to perpetuate slavery. They were told that they were fighting to defend their "home" and their neighbors.

    It was a relative handful of bigshots, many of them slaveholders, who concocted this whole theory about "secession" and a God-given right to own people. Of course, the whole theory is preposterous when we think about it now.

    But, you know, even those people, the people who had become dependent upon slaves to take care of them, were victims of their history. For generations, their families had been cared for cradle to grave by slaves. Quite naturally, they had lost confidence in their ability to take care of themselves. They even confess their dependency in Mississippi's declaration of "secession." They talk about how they could no longer work outdoors like those of the "black race." Slavery for them was "not a matter of choice, but of necessity." We can see a similar "culture of dependency" developing today in neighborhoods where generation after generation of families live on the dole and have (they believe) lost the ability to work or to take care of themselves. Lincoln freed them of all that. The descendants of these slaveholders have rediscovered the ability to care for themselves. Humans are remarkably flexible and resourceful.

    I hope that someday, more people will learn to be more sympathetic to the memory of these Southern slaveholders. They didn't choose to be born into a system which led to such dependency. It was a culture that developed naturally and over a long period of time.

    As you point out, though, it would have all gone much more smoothly had Lincoln not been murdered. Thanks again for sharing.

    Yes, Lincoln was the South's best friend.

    Nearly all Southerners know that today. They love Lincoln. They love that he freed the slaves. They love that he freed the slaveholders from their culture of dependency. And, most of all, they love that he preserved the integrity of the greatest nation in history.

    There isn't any group of people more patriotic than the people of the South. They love the USA.

    We're all so lucky to be here together. It's like Sarah Palin says, "One nation, under God, indivisible."

But, I really think that Megan Kelly is bright enough to have known how obvious it would look to viewers. She should have done something. The three of them totally humiliated themselves.

    Winston Churchill understood that when Lincoln was murdered, the South lost its best friend:

    "Lincoln died the next day, without gaining consciousness, and with him died the only protector of the prostrate South. Others might try to emulate his magnanimity; none but he could control the bitter hatreds which were rife. The assassin’s bullet had wrought more evil to the United States than all of the Confederate cannonade…[T]he death of Lincoln deprived the union of the guiding hand which alone could have solved the problems of reconstruction and added to the triumph of armies those lasting victories which are gained over the hearts of men."

    Handing out and processing civil marriage licenses (no one is asking her to perform religious marriages)--or, if she doesn't want to do that, having someone else in her office do it--is not the same as running concentration camps.

    A lot of these folks seem to lack any sense of proportion. Maybe they're young or have been sheltered from reality by protective parents, maybe they've never spoken to someone who was in a real concentration camp, who knows? It's just so hard to imagine people talking like that. Concentration camps!

    I guess if I were this lady, I would quit my job. I could understand that. What I can't understand is all this self-inflicted suffering and pain. Life has got to be very hard for some of these people.

    Civil disobedience on the left is lionized in our history. Civil disobedience on the right is considered a capitol crime.

    There is a reason that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s letter regarding civil disobedience is known as "Letter from a Birmingham Jail."

    That letter included the following:

    "I hope you are able to see the distinction I am trying to point out. In no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law, as would the rabid segregationist. That would lead to anarchy. One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty. I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law."

    If Kim Davis is serious about making a moral statement, it will be all the more eloquent if she demonstrates a willingness to go to jail for her beliefs. She should welcome the penalty.

    The founding fathers put NO LIMITS on where one could follow their religious and moral convictions.

    This is a very thorny issue, but if there is anything that I am certain of it is that none (not one) of our founding fathers believed that public officials and public employees are empowered by the First Amendment to write their own job descriptions. They believed that public officials/employees are public servants and are obliged to perform the functions that they are retained to perform. If a public official or a public employee chooses a religion that does not permit them to perform their public functions, then they need to find another job. If I was a public employees and I was asked to perform a function that conflicted with my religion, I would have the dignity to resign.

    I have a feeling that you would feel differently in a case where a public school teacher believed, for religious reasons, that the body is some kind of a spiritual temple and that schoolchildren should be encouraged to be naked in the classroom. I suspect that in that case you would tell the teacher to either quit or comply with the rules that the school has set for child safety no matter what the teacher's religion might teach. Public employees and public officials have to comply with the law like everyone else. They can't use their religious beliefs to write their own job descriptions.

    Actually, your most serious hurdle now (in addition to the outcome of the Civil War) is that favorite amendment of yours:

    "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, . . ."

    That provision recodifies the direct political connection between each person and the United States government, which owes each citizen the duty to enforce his rights as an American citizen. This was all true before the adoption of the 14th Amendment, but it was made even more certain by the adoption of that language.

    What it means is that 99% of the citizens of South Carolina cannot deprive the other 1% of their privileges and immunities as American citizens and that the United States government is obligated to go into South Carolina to protect that 1%.

    It's just another reason for you to feel as you do about the 14th Amendment. ;-)

People shouldn't forget that there was a time in our country when people actually owned other people and that it was legal even after we presented the world with a declaration that all men "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

    What can be more important than that?

    The good thing gained cost far too much. Far too much.

    The price of liberty has always been high. Many, many Americans have given their lives for it.

    But, the important thing here is that I wanted to acknowledge your courage in stating your views about slavery. As I pointed out in post 777, there are still a few people out there who are having trouble summoning up the courage to offer an opinion about slavery.

    Good for you! ;-)

    Ted Cruz has found a moral issue here and he has the courage to take some risks that others are afraid to take.

    I'm glad slavery is gone in the United States,

    I'm just a pleased as punch that you have said that!

    You've set a good example for others to follow.
