    We have run out of minorities that we can be openly bigoted toward (although Muslims seem to be a good candidate). Don't take away fags; God hates them, you know.

    It would be nice, but that would require the left to accept Christian kids. They have to have someone to hate, after all. They couldn't feel like they're better than other people without a target.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    I think you're both right. Many liberals say they're not prejudiced, but that tends to end if their hierarchy of victimhood is questioned. For some, conservative principles includes being an asshole to people whose existence violates their worldview.

    AD may have a point, but he is not "right." God hates no one, and all of His people know this. Of course, since Phelps is a Democrat, it's not unexpected that he doesn't know better.

    God may not hate anyone, but humans do. I try to dig through AD's snark and talking past the point to the heart of the matter. Some people on the right DO feel the need to hate certain people based on who they are. Some liberals hate people for what they believe.

    Phelps was a misdirection on AD's part, to get you focus on that ancilliary issue instead of the fundamental one. . . respect. The fact that they're targeting a group of people like this just rubs me the wrong way and just makes it WORSE.

    I don't have a problem with the ads. I've seen them during a variety of programming, including soap operas.


    I do have a problem with anyone wishing that the woman who complained's son is gay. Most gay men I know, no matter how comfortable they are with their sexuality, would not wish what they've been through on some poor kid.

    As someone else noted, a simple message aimed at getting kids to either treat each other with some basic level of decency or to just leave each other alone would have been much better. Gayness represents a tiny fraction of the social problems American school children inflict on each other every day. There are way more fat, awkward, fearful, angry, victimized, shy, and attention-seeking kids out there.

    And guess what? For a lot of them, it doesn't get any better.

    I think all the Google Chrome ads are well done. :)

    You and Wilbur seem more concerned with calling everyone here a bigot than with addressing a real problem. I don't particularly want to have to explain to my seven-year old about what homosexuality is (much less my three-year-old), for the same reason that I don't want to have to explain heterosexuality to her. She's too young to understand it, and it would confuse her. Consequently, I don't appreciate it when some network know-it-all decides that they have the right to jumpstart my kids' knowledge because they have an agenda. It's not bigotry to try to preserve a child's innocense until they are ready to grasp complex truths, although I can see how you would enjoy making it appear that way.

    I suddenly feel sorry for Wilbur and Arroyo. Buck up, guys, it might get better for you... >sniff< :(

    I can understand that, but Viagra ads are on all hours of the day (just as one example).
