  • The Top 20 Skirmishes in the Battle Over Homosexuality in the Schools:GRAPHIC CONTENT!

    When they call you homophobic.... you say.... "Why do you HATE my child? You are trying to change the subject. Objection to Homosexuality for my child is not hateful. As a parent I don't have to justify to you, or give you STATS, it is my JOB to protect my child. I think after thousands of years the best life for my kid is hetrosexual and the most natural."

  • A Checklist to Assess Your School's Risk for Encouraging HOMOSEXUALITY

    The UnVeiled Lady to AZ GRAMMY
    _ Programs to stop "homophobia," "hate" or "bias"

    Assumptions: That there is something wrong with objecting to homosexuality. That homosexual behavior is a minority issue like racial status. Any objections to homosexual behavior are said to originate from "hate" and are connected to violence against homosexuals. Such programs also claim there is no difference between expressed hatred of homosexuals and commonplace moral objections.

    Problems: Puts those who object to homosexuality for any reason on the defensive. Causes those who have objections to remain silent, leaving an open field for radical student, teacher or outside groups to define "hate" and discrimination however they wish. Flies in the face of freedom of religion, freedom of association and freedom of speech.

    I read a good one on another thread. If they call you homophobic ask.... why do you HATE my child?

    You are trying to change the subject. Objection to Homosexuality for my child is not hateful. As a parent I don't have to justify to you, or give you STATS, it is my JOB to protect my child. I think after thousands of years the best life for my kid is hetrosexual and the most natural.

    As others will undoubtedly point out, if Clark has no integrity or character then he's the perfect Democrat candidate for President.

    How little integrity or character do you have to have to be fired by Bill Clinton???????

  • Peggy Noonan: 'Passion' and Intrigue- The story of the Vatican and Mel Gibson's film gets curiouser

    The UnVeiled Lady to drstevej
    or if Mel's a "real" Catholic or not after reading these threads.

    I think that you need to read Paul Harvey's the rest of the story....

    Years ago a hardworking man took his family from New York State to Australia to take advantage of a work opportunity there. Part of this man's family was a handsome young son who had aspirations of joining the circus as a trapeze artist or an actor.

    This young fellow, biding his time until a circus job or even one as a stagehand came along, worked at the local shipyards which bordered on the worse section of town. Walking home from work one evening this young man was attacked by five thugs who wanted to rob him.

    Instead of just giving up his money the young fellow resisted. However they bested him easily and proceeded to beat him to a pulp. They mashed his face with their boots, and kicked and beat his body brutally with clubs, leaving him for dead. When the police happened to find him lying in the road, they assumed he was dead and called for the Morgue Wagon.

    On the way to the morgue a policeman heard him gasp for air, and they immediately took him to the emergency unit at the hospital. When he was placed on a gurney, a nurse remarked to her horror that his young man no longer had a face. Each eye socket was smashed, his skull, legs, and arms fractured, his nose literally hanging from his face, all is teeth were gone, and his jaw was almost completely torn from his skull

    Although his life was spared, he spent over a year in the hospital. When he finally left, his body may have healed but his face was disgusting to look at. He was no longer the handsome youth that everyone admired.

    When the young man started to look for work again he was turned down by everyone just on account of the way he looked. One potential employer suggested to him that he join the freak show at the circus as The Man Who Had No Face. And he did this for a while. He was still rejected by everyone and no one wanted to be seen in his company. He had thoughts of suicide

    This went on for five years. One day he passed a church and sought some solace there. Entering the church he encountered a priest who had seen him sobbing while kneeling in a pew. The priest took pity on him and took him to the rectory where they talked at length. The priest was impressed with him to such a degree that he said that he would do everything possible for him that could be done to restore his dignity and life, if the young man would promise to be the best Catholic he could be, and trust in God's mercy to free him from his torturous life. The young man went to Mass and communion every day, and after thanking God for saving his life, asked God to only give him peace of mind and the grace to be the best man he could ever be in His eyes.

    The priest, through his personal contacts was able to secure the services of the best plastic surgeon in Australia. There would be no cost to the young man, as the doctor was the priest's best friend. The doctor too was so impressed by the young man, whose outlook now on life, even though he had experienced the worst, was filled with good humor. The surgery was a miraculous success. All the best dental work was also done for him. The young man became everything he promised God he would be. He was also blessed with a wonderful, beautiful wife, and many children, and success in an industry which would have been the furthest thing from his mind as a career if not for the goodness of God and the love of the people who cared for him. This he acknowledges publicly.

    The young man was and is Mel Gibson.

    His life was the inspiration for his production of the movie "The Man Without A Face." He is to be admired by all of us as a God fearing man, a political conservative, and an example to all as a true man of courage. And to think I admired him before I knew any of this! He is quite a man!

    Paul Harvey

    #3 Vote Conservative. Vote Democrat.

    THAT IS AN OXYMORON STATEMENT IF I HAVE EVER HEARD OF ONE.

    There is no Dem (now that Zell Miller is quitting) who would cut spending and cut taxes.

    At least with Bush we have gotten a tax cut 3 times.

    CAll your CongressCritters and demand to make them permanant!!!

    The Dean campaign insists it has the money, the institutional support and the grass-roots army to soldier on

    Sure the MoveOn.org communist money and grassroots action wing organization. Let them go forth and spend allllllll the money they can to get Dean in the finals. I love seeing them waste their money.

    The UnVeiled Lady to Theodore R.
    But, honestly, President Bush's proposal to legalize untold millions of illegal aliens is potentially worse than any of these blunders, any of these mistakes, any of these abuses.

    Not more dangerous than.... the transfer by President Clinton of sensitive technology with military applications to a budding superpower for campaign cash;

    But mostly I agree with you.

    He is obsessed with being re-elected, and his obsession with re-election is hurting the country."

    Funny, during the Clinton years every 3rd day Clinton was out fundraising and it was on the news.

    I rarely hear that Bush is fundraising and that would seem to me to be a clue as to how much he thinks about re-election.

    Imagine an America of closed factories, shuttered offices, and millions of unemployed blue-collar and white-collar workers. Imagine a United States of America that is no longer the leader in any major industrial or technological sector — a U.S. of A.

    You don't have to imagine it, just read Ayn Rands "Atlas Shrugged" She wrote what America would look like further down the road in 1950's.

    Would that I had read it sooner and known what to fight against then.
