"I'm with South Carolina," said GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, who also faces voters next year. "I believe in traditional marriage — between a man and a woman, without animosity. I don't mind if people are able to transfer their property, visit their loved ones in hospitals, but marriage to me, I've stayed with the concept of traditional marriage."
Which is why he is still single.
The News Director Vlae Kershner at the San Francisco Chronicle thought it would be a good idea tocompare Trent Mays, one of the teens who raped a girl in Steubenville last summer, to lovable scamp Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver.
Fans of classic TV will remember Eddie Haskell from "Leave It To Beaver". Making mischief, getting his friends in trouble, sucking up to their parents as if he were the nicest boy who ever lived.
If the writers had cast Eddie as the bad guy in a crime show instead of a sitcom, he might have resembled Trent Mays. He's one of two teenagers convicted in juvenile court Sunday of digital penetration (which in Ohio constitutes rape) of an intoxicated 16-year-old girl in Steubenville last August.
So a helpful way to understand how this boy raped a girl, we should consider a late-50s fictional television personality who modeled mischievous boyhood?
"May those arguing on behalf of same-sex "marriage" present their arguments in an inept, confusing and unconvincing way. May they fail to gain traction in the minds of the Justices. May the right of Californians to amend their state constitution to protect marriage be confirmed by the Court, and may the Defense of Marriage Act be ruled constitutional (Lev 20:all; 1 Sam 2:8-10; 2 Chr 14:11; 20:12-27; Pr 22:28; 24:21; Is 8:18-20; Dan 7:25-27; 2 Cor 2:5)."
Prayers don't work anyway, but too bad they couldn't pray for an end to world hunger or poverty or something helpful and not hateful.
Death of the Media - A paper in WV printed an unattributed rant which called for "queers" to be put to death along with "n*ggers, spics, kikes and wops." So of course the nightly news covered it, too. (Raw Story)
Nostalgia! - Sandy Rios can neither confirm nor deny it, but she sure will speculate (as she did in the '90s) that Hillary Clinton is a lesbian:
"Hillary Clinton, there have long been rumors about her sexual persuasion; if you don't know that you need to know that. I can't confirm or deny anything; I just remember that Dick Morris was the first one to raise this publicly. He worked with Bill and Hillary Clinton for a number of years and he said on public television, I was shocked because I knew about the rumors, he actually alleged that Hillary was a — he was trying to make excuses for Bill Clinton when he was caught with Monica Lewinsky — and he basically said, I believe it was on Fox many years ago when that broke, basically hinted that Hillary was a lesbian."
Proof! - Notably nutty End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles of TruNews says that the proof that the Kenyan Usurper is actually Old Scratch hisself is that the actor playing Old Scratch in The Bible Miniseries looks like the Kenyan, therefore the Kenyan is the Debbil. Q.E.D. You got that?
"Now here's my take on it: I believe Mark Burnett and his wife and the History Channel. I don't believe they intentionally portrayed the Lucifer character to look like Mr. Obama. I think God guided the hand of the makeup artist and blinded the eyes of everybody on the movie set while it was being recorded, and the spiritual blinders were removed Sunday night when the program was broadcast nationally on the History Channel. How many clues do we need from Heaven to understand that the man in the White House is a devil from Hell?"
