    Either way, I wouldnt support this bill, it does look like its rife with all kinds of unintended consequences, and just poorly put together. Not to mention it seems unconstitutional on its face..

    I know you guys love to be martyrs but this doesnt look like your chance... Should be a good opportunity to drum up some more fear that the govco is gonna take your bible away, and it looks like its well underway.
    But it does seem to be a law restricting free speech and would probably not pass a review by the Supreme Court. On another note, you seem to have a real dislike of Christianity that tends to cloud your judgement sometimes. Your sarcasm (at least I hope that it is sarcasm) to Mrs Smith tends to reveal a deep seated dislike of something you don't understand. Similar to the dislike of homosexuals that you like to paint all Christians with. Is there a difference between your view of Christians and the Christian view of homosexuality?

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Hey, if you want to get your information from a website which is owned by a religious crackpot and charlatan who once declared that "the Antichrist is probably a Jew alive in Israel today" and that the 9/11 attacks were the result of God lifting a veil of protection on the US, then be my guest, but don't expect me to take you seriously.

    Just because someone dislikes something doesn't mean that person can't be objective about it.

    It doesn't meant that they are free of bias either.

    Someone being biased in favor of something or against something doesn't necessarily make that person wrong.

    I love the Colorado legislature. They attempted to pass a bill into law that solves a problem that they havenít seen evidence of. The entire effort was being driven by the GLBT lobby and thankfully they failed again.
