    The discussion is good. The insults are not. I think most of it has been taken care of.

    I'm all for a good lively debate but it CAN be done without arrogant, condescending remarks.

    Carry on!

    Yes Darwin did have some racist undertones but that was 150+ years ago and no respectable scientist would take everything that Darwin published at face value, unless of course they were studying barnacles in which case he was the expert on them for quite a while.

    As for separate but equal there is no such thing. By the nature of making something separate you admit it is not equal and that is wrong. It wasn't equal for races why should it be accepted for sexual orientation? If its ok for homosexuals lets bring it back for the races.

    Ok. This is a little off-topic but I am just shocked at how much writing people can put into one post! I mean sometimes I think to myself "Okay. That was a good amount." Then I look at the final piece and see it's only like 2 lines. Much like this post here.
    I regret little to nothing!

    Hey, gays will finally be seen as humans - we'll see how long it lasts...

    BTW I didn't read any of this topic, I don't wanna know who's got crazy prejudices.

    Just to throw in, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said that some traditions are worth keeping while others are worth throwing away. He never stated which ones but like so many people on here I agree that the gay marriage should no longer be a ban. I noticed ,too, that so many religious leaders (like the Pope) HATE changing tradition. They think the way it is now works for everybody. And religion is in our politics (hence the gay marriage ban) and should not be. Give it time and when a new generation of folks are in Congress and the White Hose things will change.

    I didnít read much of this topic, butÖ Itís a good day to live in California. Progress is great and separation of religion and government is imperative, IMO. I donít buy the comparison of homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia in terms of marriage eitherÖ itís a bunch of rotten bologna.

    Hopefully other states will soon follow.

    God knows your motives and your heart. If you are purposefully doing something to intoxicate yourself, then gee golly you might actually become intoxicated. Having a glass of wine is not a sin.
