Yes actually my eyes are brown. I will say I did accuse you of saying that horrible comment, only to find out it was your "side-kick" Doobio who actually posted that. You see when you and your lackees spew the same old drivel you all run toghether and you think moron is bad? That is the things that repubs have to say to make themselves feel somehow superior, but as I said repubs have abortions also. Oh yes we dems "rant" and you repubs "preach" your point? Of course your friends are repub, who cares, I am happy for the 4 of you. I am happy that if your friends choose to get married to their partners they won't have to deal with closed minded people such as yourself telling them what they can call their union. It is not your concern. I will bet they are very happy but they just don't share that with you because of your views, how sad. No dementia here just a mistake, you know we humans do that. I know that word is foreign to a repub but I will decode it fo

how about your comment about my parents being republican because they chose not to abort me?......LauriH

You are so full of crap your eyes must be brown. Never said one thing about aborting you. not sure where you came up with that one. Maybe one of your rants with someone else. My gay friends are Republicans for the record, or are you going to say they only tell me they are Rep. because they want me to like them. I think dementia may be starting.

Do you honestly think your friends tell you the truth about what they want knowing you are so closed minded about being gay and getting married? They tell you what they want you to know, don't fool yourself. Turn it around like you repubs like to do it. I stereotype, how about your comment about my parents being republican because they chose not to abort me? Remember that, probably not repubs have a memory problem. So all dems have abortions? You are a sorry excuse for a so-called man.

Now your 3 gay friends can have a union between themselves and their partners and can call it a MARRIAGE.........LauriH

I like how you stereo type and think all gays want to be married. None of my friends want to marry there partners, so no need to rush out and get a tuxedo.

LauriH,

Yes, I saw the ruling and associated pictures of smiles and happiness for some of those rushing to get their marriage licenses.

At the same time I am saddened because I think that it will lead to negative consequences in our society. When God made us, he understands us better than we understand ourselves. When he gives us rules to follow, it is for our benefit and well-being. It is not like he is trying to deprive us of some joy. He does have our best interests at heart.

I posted this on another letter Steelman but I was so excited to let you know, PA just overturned the ban on same sex MARRIAGE!!!! Now your 3 gay friends can have a union between themselves and their partners and can call it a MARRIAGE. I hope they ask you to be best man, it will be a stretch for you but you can do it, just breathe....

Steelman I do not need to try to belittle you, you do a great job on your own. You may have friends that are gay but you would be the first one voting to take away their right to have a MARRIAGE,typical repub two faced. I am sure you know the other word for donkey, I am sure you have been called that numerous times in your life already I won't add to it.

so when you respond to this steelman what does that make you? …………… LauriH

Once again your attempt to be little me has failed. I never said I would not reply where as you did and then could not resist. Big difference. It is like dangling the carrot in front of the donkeys nose and he just tries to keep getting it. What is the other term they use for a donkey? Can you help me out?

As for Homophobic, I have three friends who are gay, like them as much as the rest of my friends, but they know I do not believe it is right.

Have a great day, I know you will be checking back, so when you respond to this steelman what does that make you? Oh thats right you have super strength powers you can resist correct? I hope so because when you speak you sound like a "know it all" homophobic biggot.

Couldn’t resist responding could you. Shows a sign of weakness.

Kids and marriage are fine straight A’s and married 15yr (first one for the record) thanks for your concerns though. Back to topic

"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently." (Galatians 6:1)

This is why gay marriage should not be condoned.

Steelman did you rewrite that from your counseling sessions for your children? Or marriage counseling? Please everytime you post to me it is an attack, so you can't handle being called a moron? Put your big boys pants on. Maybe you are not used to anyone defying "The Great and Powerful Steelman" you sound like a silly childish little man. FYI on monday in Oregon a federal judge threw out the ban on same sex MARRIAGES marking the 13th consecutive win for GAY MARRIAGE! Steelman maybe you should go and do a "feelings" worksheet.

I'm here to help.

Cause: Sometimes, due to developmental age, past modeling, basic temperament, or other reasons, children may resort to using hurtful language and name-calling as a way to express themselves. We can choose to see these children as "being mean," or we can choose to see them as lacking the self-control and skills necessary to express themselves appropriately.

Solution: The following formula will get you started in a new direction. To help children manage strong emotions, it is essential to assist them in recognizing their feelings and their desired outcome, to offer empathy, and to teach a new skill. The words to use are:

"You seem ________(feeling word)."

"You wanted ______ (state desire)." or "You were hoping ____(state desire)."

"It's hard when that happens. You can handle it. Breathe with me."

Ouch back to the name calling. Does it make you feel better? How about clicking that disagree button does that get the anger out? Hey what ever makes you feel good about yourself.

Keep spinning words there steelman. Sorry to have to leave the party, the 3 of you are so much fun but the pool guys are here to open up for the season. Misery loves company, and you have each other to go back and forth judging people and solving the worlds problems. Knock yourselves out.

Steelman you are a moron and I will not even respond to you. My sincere apologies to you GoBB62 if in fact you are not one of the many faces of boobie, I would not want to be clumped in with that whole mess. So what is your view on gays using the word marriage? I don't want to assume but you seem against it correct? Did I assume wrong again?

Steelman what does my wanting the unemployment extension have to do with tellig Boobie to not be so worried about others being gay and wanting to use the word marriage?…………. LauriH

I was just reiterating the fact that you said “May I suggest you find a hobby or maybe a JOB.”

“maybe she is the one pushing buttons on the phone to file her claim?” ………………. LauriH

God is forgiving of our sins and in my reality he is the only one who will judge these people and all of us for that matter……………………….. LauriH

Steelman what does my wanting the unemployment extension have to do with tellig Boobie to not be so worried about others being gay and wanting to use the word marriage? Yes Boobie there was homosexual behavior is that what you wanted me to write? Do you feel better? Still this does not affect you what so ever. Like I said stay away from social and personal choice issues. You don't want to be gay? Don't be gay. You don't believe a union between 2 same sex people should be called a marriage, then don't call it a marriage it is that simple. I assume Boobs has a job, I have asked that question before and to this date she has not answered so maybe she is the one pushing buttons on the phone to file her claim? You are right about one thing Texas and that is God is forgiving of our sins and in my reality he is the only one who will judge these people and all of us for that matter, not you,steelman or boobie. Live for your own judgement day.
