Re: One for mistah willies and Bluebottle to ponder...

I find cultural appropriation a difficult one. When does appreciation end and just plain theft of an identity begin? If you have a good understanding of what you're 'borrowing', is it ok? The Beatles for example...

That'd be Austin 3:17.

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

Finland releases the World's first Postage Stamps featuring Erotica , celebrating the work of the homo-erotic artist, Tom of Finland. It was hugely influential stuff, although I doubt how much of it he intended to be the art it's considered to be now. Some of his stuff was tenderly touching though,...

Re: Which countries have you travelled to

All over the UK and Ireland, bits of France and Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium (sorry P but I'm counting it for this), Germany, Italy, Poland, Croatia and Ukraine. So not really outside Europe. I can recommend all of them, I thoroughly enjoyed the lot. I particularly recommend Ukraine, that was ...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

You really don't see what I'm pointing out. There is a war on freedom of choice and association. Are you with me so far? You discriminate everyday and make choices based on your preferences which include people based on their attributes. This is human. Suddenly a minority has taken over the major m...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

Ah now I wasn't aware of that. I think it's a bit silly to force churches into it, I do agree with you there, especially if there are plenty of other places (and possibly even churches) where a person can get married without upsetting everyone. I suppose what I'm after is dialogue and compromise. Wi...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

Churches (and other religious groups) tend to be reactionary rather than too forward thinking, but I think that's the norm for any big and established institution. Changes in government policy on social issues for example rarely seem to come about by themselves but seem to reflect changing attitudes...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

I think you make an interesting point, RA, but as frankennietzsche says marriage is not purely a religious ceremony. I'm not sure it ever was, but even if we assume that marriage was a religious contract then surely that definition already changed the moment you could be married in a secular ceremon...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

Oh, and finding the word homophobic offensive smacks rather of 'poor me, people are oppressing my right to be oppressive'. Here's the deal my dear, it's when these minorities that you have linked up with try to force their values onto the public by using the government to censure speech and elicit ...

Re: NFL; Racism and Homophobia

I don't think your belief in the supernatural should protect you from being called out when you're deciding to discriminate against people who aren't hurting anyone. 'It's my religion' should not be a valid shield. Believe in whatever you like with no evidence, but when you're applying it to how oth...
