But thanks for asking....

Yes, little lady, I too think that "nuts driving" nonsense from the op is funny.

Don't bother to thank me. Happy to look this stuff up for you. @Richva....................I see your example citing Franklin Graham, but it would be more meaningful if you posted your Bible verse that states it is OK for a man to marry a man.


RK asked for examples of the Religious Right going nuts about the Mayor.  I actually quoted his question. 

 

Don't bother to thank me. I am happy to correct any misconceptions. 


Yes, he did - he read the topic but saw no examples of "nuts driving" and inquired. And, as yet, he has not received a response from the OP or anyone else about the "nuts driving".

Considering how long the Watergate investigation took to get Nixon out of office (21 months) and knowing donny will never resign, working to remove him and his cryptonazi supporters with ballots will get the job done in the least possible time.


What has all that offensive trash talk to do with someone supposedly being driven nuts (the topic)?


He was just pointing out how Buttigieg's moral position is much superior to Trump's. Like me, he does not like having a Russian operative in the White House and it can make you a bit testy. 


How so? I didn't see Buttleg's name in his post.

I saw no "nut driving". I did see a difference in opinion regarding biblical interpretation from Graham.

 

Can you point to the "nut driving" you saw in this situation?


I don't do Sects, 

I assume that was a spelling error and it does explain the anger and frustration.

Of course they knew what they were doing was wrong. no excuse, and they did have the knowledge of right and wrong but men will do bad things knowing fully that they are wrong. Couldn't agree more....I am not excusing those priests, any more that I am excusing the Borgies or any other matter in the Catholic church that was done by the men in it.
But the men in any religion are not the ones that are the the ones that tell us what our religions  should be or not. Religions have foundations.  and the actions of a few has never made a full religion.  Yep!  But the CHURCH FAILED it's followers and tried to cover it up.  Dispicable!  I am lucky that I can separate the actions of the men in it with what is a religion.  You'll be even luckier if you acknowledge the failings of the church (I know....."men" running the institution).  Smiley Wink

 

Like addressed previously, Christianity isn't hypocritical, just some of the men and women.  Catholicism isn't hypocritical, but the church sure is.

I  would have thought God would have been more specific in the Ten Commandments. It just says "Thou shall not commit adultery" but nothing about same sex marriage.  Probably one of the reasons the Religious Right goes crazy about the Mayor.
