QuoteOriginally posted by: CactusMan"...might build a bridge to gay and lesbian people just as we have built a bridge to drug addicts, alcoholics and unwed mothers."And just what has Falwell done for addicts, alcoholics and unwed mothers?Also, why would gay and lesbians need Falwell's bridge? Visit the typical gan/lesbian community and you will find:--More educated--Higher salary (and therefore paying more taxes)--By far less crime--More culturethan Falwell's followers. So what would they need their "bridge" for?To save their souls from eternal damnation ?

-- Would you want to an member of a club that has TJ as member?This is probably the best argument against organized religion. What are the chances the tj is right multiplied by chances that pauper, farmer and Ham are right.btw: What do these four have in common besides intolerance, that says more about them than it says about their religion?

au contraireI do not profess to know, I just claim that your beliefs are not based on the evidence and seem to be laced with a fair amount of intolerance.

You seem extremely tolerant except when it comes to things you don't agree with. Then you get hysterical. Typical liberal.
