That honestly wasn't even my point. I was saying just because Christianity didn't consider being black as sinful, what if other religions did?

Where I grew up in Oklahoma, being black was 'proof' that you were descended from Cain and bore his mark. Shunning black people was absolutely the Christian thing to do.

The folks in here are debating what they believe the law says, not what it does say. Rational discourse has been thrown aside for emotional argumentation. I've grown tired of waiting for someone to actually talk about the law itself, rather than the fever dreams of what they imagine it to be.

Did you mock Sarah Palin for 'death panels'? If so, you are making the same mistake, in that you are creating something to argue against that does not exist in the law (or even a reasonable interpretation of the law.0

In other news, I flagged a post that accused, in quite a broad stroke, the GOP base to be homophobic bigots. I felt that it broke the rules of the forum and was as inflammatory as many of the posts that have been deleted already. It remains there. Why do the moderators allow such commentary to remain?

actually as noted above, the differences between this law and the Federal version have already been noted.

I'm waiting for someone to list the differences between the Indiana RFRA and the Federal versions or the 19 other state laws that have people's knickers twisted.

Since the end of the world didn't happen 20 years ago, when those evil homophobic Democrats passed and signed it, I doubt it will happen in Indiana now.

if hobby lobby didn't happen, you would have a stronger case. It's this debated law ,along with the one sentence changed to make it different from the federal law, along with hobby lobby decision that has people understandably concerned. It's like using multiple books written across a specific edition to create a combination of abilities that were not planned for by anyone involved in the game at any time.

Then I pity the legal teams for this looming court battle (if it ever does and wouldn't it have by now since these laws have been around for a while). And having read the wiki... doesn't this logic also exclude a rather large portion of the white population that has no Jewish ancestry or include blacks with a mixed heritage that does have Jewish ancestry? Their logic seems terribly flawed.

what fascinates me about this, and I mean truly, is that so much of this stuff is so recent, when one takes a long view of things.

With respect to your post, this could be the origin of the "one drop" rule.

I have certainly played with people who weren't born before I started playing rpgs.

Might have posted that a couple years ago. I turn 24 in less than a month, and I was 20 when I started posting at Paizo.

Just touching on this point.

I'm not disagreeing with your larger point, but mainstream pornography is part of a much larger set of societal influences that cause body image issues. It's not the main culprit - I'd not even say top five - but it's still a part of how society can influence body image.

I'm speaking only about U.S. culture, by the way; I know we have an international community here, and I don't want to speak for other parts of the world. :)

However, I don't think anyone over... I dunno... 14~15 years believes that sex is like porn...

Can I ban Christians from my establishment due to serving them being against my religious principles?
Theoretically, yes.
Wouldn't that still be prohibited under the federal Civil Rights Act?
I was under the impression that the whole point of this law was to take precedent over that. Otherwise it would truly do nothing.

My understanding from limited research is that the Civil Rights Act does protect against refusing service to customers of a certain creed, but does not similarly protect orientation. Thus the state law would protect discrimination against gay people, but the federal law would still govern when it came to discrimination against Christians.

So I don't think the sponsors of the bill are, legally speaking, even in theoretical danger of having to drink their own medicine.

But I might be wrong.

Yes? No? Maybe snow?

But I suspect the peer reviewed study is more likely to take that into account than anecdotes from random teens.
But there's not much they can do for it. Its simply a limitation on the social sciences that make the social fine but when they add science they prevaricate.

No, but when 60% of female respondents between 16 and 20 say that their partners expect them to perform acts they don't want to and that those partners openly admit that they desire to perform those acts because they saw it in porn, and that those female respondents ultimately capitulate to those requests, then it is reasonable to conclude that porn is adversely affecting the self worth of those females.

That is all true whether you believe in science or not.

And what percentage of respondents said they enjoyed said act and would perform it again? Or that they did not enjoy it but would perform it again because their partner did? Or said they enjoyed it but wouldn't perform it again for some reason? Or where completely ambivalent about the act afterwards?

Do you have a link to this study?

People convince their friends, family, lovers, etc to do things all the time. No one's self worth is positively or negatively affected. just because sometimes it happens in the bedroom doesn't change that. I could give you a laundry list of things I've been convinced to try in bed. Some were enjoyable, some weren't. Some will be repeated, some won't. Interestingly those sets are not the same for lot of different reasons.

lots of things I tried with my ex that will never see the inside of my bedroom again. It doesn't mean she forced me into it(although I was nervous) or was a bad person. Just that it is something that will remain between us and noone else.

So i think I finally got through to my mother and father. It took a lot but I apology I need to rant.

I asked her to just take away her preconceptions about my homosexuality (fundamentalist christian).
I asked her to think what if I grew up knowing I was gay. What if I grew up and and only had the input that I was going to hell, for something no matter how hard and how earnestly I prayed wouldn't go away. On top of that I couldn't dare let anyone in my life know. My family was all fundamentalist redneck christians. My friends were all fundamentalist christians. My community was mostly so in a rural farming area. So should anyone find out they wouldn't help me. The best i could hope for is to be disowned, shunned, and thrown out of the house.

Now lets pile on the fact I was bullied at school for being super quiet and not one of the normal boisterous guys. I played sports, I worked on the farm. But i wasn't one of the guys. I didn't belong. School was hell, home wasn't any better.

At home my step father I was emotionally and physically abused by my step father. My mother who for years protected the man finally stopped doing so. (he has passed away in 2003) As hard as I try I can't remember one positive word that man ever said to me. The best i could hope for from him was to be ignored. Because if I wasn't ignored I was insulted, yelled at hit, and punished. That was the extent of our relationship. I finally stopped her defence of him. She always maintained that he was majorly abused as a child and that he did care for us. I broke and yelled that even if that was the case he is an adult, I was a child. He had no right to abuse me. At his age he was responsible for his own actions and she should have stepped in. If any government employee found out my brother and I would have been removed.

I asked her if all that was true does my life long struggle with anxiety make sense? If it was all true does my desire to get away and never come back to that place make sense? If it was all true does it make...

that sounds like the hardest thing you ever did. It also sounds like they heard. You did great today. You did great.

I suspect the main appeal is the total destruction of civil authority. You can pretty much do whatever you want if you're strong enough, despite all the negative connotations of the situation, it's a pretty strong power fantasy. In fact many of the antagonists, and quite a few of the protagonists are people who lose themselves into that fantasy.

some would argue that power fantasies are destructive and negative by design.

Necromancy is a school of magic centered around the idea of replacing the life force of a formerly sentient being and replacing it with energy from the plane of shadow. If used on creatures that are already deceased it results in simple creations like skeletons or zombies, but when used upon a living being, it sometimes results in horrid creatures that need to sup upon the life they left behind, such as ghouls, vampires, and werewolves.
