You Cody News (March 15, 2005)

Russia paid $10 mln for information on Maskhadov
Take these murderers out. Even if it comes across like Darth Vader hiring Boba Fett.

Calif. Ruling Sets Up Gay Marriage Fight
Seriously, get over it, people. Who, outside of a vocal religious followers of someone who preached tolerance and non-judgment, cares if gays marry?

Atlanta shootings suspect to appear in court
I know this is bad taste -- but could you imagine if he got out again? Think there might be some tight security around this guy this time?

U2, Guy Rock the Hall
U2 gets as much meaningless press as does Apple. Guess that's why they teamed up.

FCC Rules 'MNF' Intro Wasn't Indecent
Is this really something the government should even be dealing with?

Colleagues: Griffin can 'get the job done' for NASA
What so-called "job"? Could you imagine how wondrous space travel would be in the govenment got the hell out of the way and quit bureacrating money and time away on their antiquated programs?

The Apple bloggers must name their moles
Damn straight. I can't wait to read all these bloggers defend their intellectual property theft and attack Apple for this. Hey, let's go download some music for free and then be upset when the recording industry fights back. To be clear -- the Internet is wondrous and will continue to revolutionize the world, but it doesn't mean that property rights and other laws are meaningless.

Yo man,

I'm down with the laid back "who cares if they get married, so what?" philosophy. The only thing I have a problem with is that this country was founded (in large part anyway) on Christian values and beliefs. I realize that its an ever-changing world and that nothing stays the same, but I can't NOT support the Bible. Its one of those issues that everybody has an opinion on, just don't debate them at a bar, heh heh. The same with politics in general.

Holla

Of course you can NOT support the Bible...ever worked on a Sunday - have you been put to death? If not, that's going against Biblical teaching. Touching the skin of a pig is considered unclean by the authors of the Bible - but NFL players routinely do (AND on Sunday no less) - no Christian uproar over that - unless its your QB who gets picked off. Take a minute to revel in the hypocrisy of your arguement. Judeo-Christian ethics are fine - but the Founding Fathers specifically stated that they didn't want any religion to be a part of this country's government. (and let's not take over this guy's blog...)

Now I feel like I'm in a bar. In this situation, it is best to smile, nod, and tell the other he/she is right so you can move on to another conversation and beverage. Cheers!

I don't give a rats a** if homosexuals get married. The problem I have, as should anyone who values our constitution, is the activist judges. This is an issue for the people. And the people have already spoken in California and they choose not to have gay marriage legal. The judge in this case said he sees no reason why gay people can't get married, that is an opinion, it has nothing to do with the constitution.

If I must, I must. My final thoughts on this (I specify non-argumentative) thread that was blown out of proportion.

First of all, if you understand the Bible at all, there is a difference between Old and New Testament law. According to the Old Testament, people were to have a day of rest. However, in the New Testament, God allowed new law, hence, the New Testament, and nothing states that you can't work on Sundays. Same goes for the oh-so-compelling pig argument. I'm not a Bible throwing church-boy, but those are just the facts. Nevermind the vast majority of the historic buildings in our nation's capital; the White House, the Supreme Court Building, and the Capitol Building all have Christian Scripture carved in stone all over the place. This nation was founded on Christian principles, and that is something no one can ever escape.

Now I shall go revel in the hypocrisy of my earlier argument, oh wait.
