Oh come now snakechic, is this not fringe preaching? I have been in churches all over the country and I can’t ever recall hearing such garbage from a preacher. How about checking in with someone like that guy from Texas, the Lakewood church kid. Or that guy from OC california, Rick Warren, or the other one from there, Greg Laurie, or the guy from Dallas…Td Jakes, or David Wilkerson from NYC. How bout those guys.

Homunculus, what a can of worms we thus open. Two gay friends who have kids? Well, everybody has an opinion on the subject. But from the big picture, don’t you think that a child needs both a mother and a father for a well round upbringing? Does it not seem fair to deprive a child of having a female/mother in its rearing? Just asking the questions friend.

Champion (and I want to get back to you tomorrow about the other stuff we’re having fun talking about), I was only arguing that descent-with-modification works with homosexuality since gay people are also attractive enough to the opposite sex that baby making often occurs. You’re bringing morality into the picture. Sure, in an ideal world all children have a mother and a father. Hell, let’s go one step further and pretend we’re in Utah a few years back and have 3 or 4 mothers for every child.

A child needs as many parents as are able to address his/her needs. One competent parent is a thousand times better than two who believe in devils and eternal torture. Sorry for pulling out all the stops, but it’s getting late.

You know, I was resisting the Ignore option, thinking that I’d just go the standard route of deflecting this stuff as it comes along. But ya know… my demon filter just shouldn’t have to work this hard wink.


*heading rapidly over to the link that will clear my screen of crap and give my brain better things to do*


Just think, treb, soon you will be babbling into a void.

Leaving the idiots (Champ & Treb) to mutter to themselves for a while…

I saw Crash last night.  It was a decent enough movie, but I can’t figure out what Osccar was thinking.  On an intellectual level, it was maybe late middle school or early high school; maybe Hollywood really is more homophobic than we think?

I don’t know if you can come to that assumption?..*shrugs*

I enjoyed Crash - not for its ‘intellectual’ stimulation but for the tremendous emotional interaction I had with the film…no I’m not normally a ‘weeper’...but I cried and cried all through Crash…its more of a well designed film in that way than brokeback which to me is very simple in its message….almost a ‘chic flick’...

the actors in crash were brill!

Do movies win the Osccar according to the issues?...nah but I think racism affects more people and is probably more ‘dangerous’ to open up about than gay love…............surely!

When film historians look back at the films of this century (that is, if Jesus doesn’t come back beforehand…), I assure you that Crash will be at the top of, or bottom of, the list. No inbetweens.

Best films of the previous century? There are a lot of opinions, here is mine:

- Casablanca
- True Grit
- The Great Waldo Pepper
- Tora, Tora, Tora
- Laurence of Arabia
- The African Queen
- Animal House
- American Graffiti
- ET
- Star Wars
- Ben Hur
- The Godfather
- The Godfather II
- The Terminator
- Cleopatra
- Blade Runner
- As Good as it Gets (awesome performance by Jack)
- The 10 Commandments

You know, a good film is like a good wine - if you like it, it’s a good wine.

And since when does TC listen to some tree-huggin’ liberal-agenda’d “film historian” anyway?!?!?  Did you put that there to be ironic?  Fess up now.

Hello SitDogmaSit, nope, just voicing an opinion. I know I probably left off a few goodies. But Fargo????  snakechic, maybe I should rewatch. I must admit that I never watched the whole thing. Every time I tried there was some crisis to attend to!! :-(
