Ohio mayor resigns over accusations of gay slurs

[quote][b]yeti[/b] - Reading this article jogged my memory, and I recall we used to play a football game of one vs. everyone called "Smear the Queer". I would have to think this game, although still being played, has probably adopted a new less offensive name. That being said, never did did we think we were tackling the kid with the ball because he was gay. The term "queer" in the game probably followed the definition, "someone who was different". In the case of the game, the target of all the other kids was different because they had the ball.
All that rambling aside, I'm sure the mayor was using the term in the most offensive manner. [/quote]

We played that too! Queer and [filtered word] describes what the guy does, the word gay means happy.

Athens woman arrested for assaulting man with jar of olives

[quote][b]antiBen[/b] - @grove600: How about this - when a jar of olives can put 20 1st graders in their graves in a matter of minutes, then we talk about banning olives. Until then your "jokes" just make me ill.

The olives had as much to do with this crime as the gun did in Ct. People that think like this, thinks there is nothing wrong with abortions.

Inaugural pastor withdraws over anti-gay remarks

Crazy preacher preaching from the bible again!! Preacher had no idea this country could sink so far in 20 years when he said those things.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

Cliff avoided: Congress staves off tax hikes

Republicans get shafted again!

The cliff was what was left over from 2 years ago when the Dems didn't want to cut spending. Now the Dems got the Republicans to increase taxes and spending, when the Republicans was wanting a balanced budget amendment 2 years ago.

Looks like the Tea party needs to start running as Democrats. Some almost homeless guy in Sc got the Den US Senate nomination a couple years ago. You can win like that when your voters don't have sense enough to get out of the rain.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
