Biblical marriage made easy for conservatives

From the article, "We hear a lot about “biblical marriage” these days, particular from right-wing conservatives battling the idea of same sex marriage or unions. The problem is that most of them are not clear on what that means. Here is a helpful article on the types of marriage found in the pages of the bible. The important thing for conservatives to realize here is that none of these models are described as being any better than any other. They all appear to have been accepted throughout the bible. So there you go. The next time someone opposed to gay marriage says that we need to stick with traditional biblical marriage in this country, you can ask them which of the eight kinds they would prefer, and why." article here.

School says deaf boy's name sign looks too much like a gun

Brace yourselves, because this is the dumbest thing you'll hear all day. The Grand Island (Neb.) school district is forcing a 3-year-old deaf boy to change the way he signs his name, because they say his gestures violate their weapons policy. I think the people in charge of this school district really need their heads examined. article here.

NOM's Brian Brown becomes accidental ally for marriage equality through a slip of the tongue

Who would have thought that from a quick slip of the tongue, Brown undermines the entire argument for passing laws against gay marriage and becomes the gay community's unwitting ally in the cause for marriage equality. How quick will it be before he and NOM scramble to correct the public image damage of this one? article here.


Todd Akin simply said out loud what he and his colleagues think but aren’t supposed to say. Todd Akin simply said out loud what his voting record and the voting record of his conservative colleagues showed for years. Three weeks ago – 203 Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to prohibit abortions even in cases of rape or incest. And now they've made that position the official party platform position just yesterday. Your move America. article here.

Religious Right Still Oblivious of their Double Standard on Boycotts

yep, if you boycott them you're attacking their "religious freedom" If they call for a boycott it is called "doing God's work" I'd like to know why these "religious groups" think they can tell companies who they can support. Groups like The American Family Association, Focus on the Family, Million Mom's March, and their ilk are nothing more than hate groups who hide behind religion to justify their bigotry. Using religion to justify bigotry is still bigotry. Religious Right Still Oblivious of their Double Standard on Boycotts

What Did The Maya REALLY Say About 2012? Great article

Despite the media hype and doomsday predictions, turns out the Mayan's did not predict the end of the world on December 21st 2012. If the media would ask a modern Mayan they might find out the truth. Here's a very good article on the subject. A quote from the article. "“They’ve got it all wrong”, was the general consensus among the Maya elders of the Village of San Jose in Belize. One of the elders added, “Our ancestors didn’t believe in death or the end. They celebrated events like these by building new monuments, venerating ancestors, and doing festivals.” The Maya believed in regeneration, and they still believe in it today. End of the World? The Maya view of 2012 is a far cry from the doom and gloom scenarios presented by many speculative authors and filmmakers. The Mayas didn’t believe the world would end on 2012. In fact, cities like Palenque have carvings with celebratory dates like, which is over 4000 years after 2012." What did the Mayan's Really say about 2012

13 Other things the Bible bans that pretty much all Christians do anyway

The main argument used by those who appose same sex marriage is "the bible bans it." Well, here's a list of thirteen things the bible bans that all the people who say they are against same sex marriage do on a daily basis. Tattoos; Leviticus 19:28 states, “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” I have a sister who is apposed to same sex marriage but has a tattoo. hmmmmmmm. Rounded haircuts; Leviticus 19:27 states, “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.” Men with injured private parts entering churches; Deuteronomy 23:1 states, “He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.” Even though most castrations were done by the church. Consulting psychics; Leviticus 19:31 states, “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”My mom actually believes this psychic stuff but she is apposed to same sex marriage Gossiping; Leviticus 19:16 states, “Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbor; I am the LORD.”Well there goes all the tabloid TV shows and magazines. Not to mention talking about co workers around the water cooler Wives helping their husbands in a fight; Deuteronomy 25:11-12 state, “When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her. Eating ham; Leviticus 11:7-8 read, “And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud, he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and heir carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.” how many Christians do you know who eat ham on Easter? My family does and they appose same sex marriage. Children cursing their parents; Exodus 21:17 states, “And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.”I know many children who would be put to death my self included if this were actually enforced. Getting remarried after getting divorced; Mark 10:11-12 state, “Whosoever putteth away his wife and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.” Working on the sabbath; Exodus 31:14 states, “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: everyone that defileth it shall surely be put to death…” I'd like to see someone try to use this to get out of working on Sunday. I can hear it now, "Sorry I can't work on Sundays because if I do I'll be put to death." You're probably not going to get very far using that one but how many people do you know who appose same sex marriage that also work on Sunday's? Women speaking in church; 1 Corinthians 14:34 states, “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak…” God sounds a little sexist doesn't he? My mother is apposed to same sex marriage but she was a Sunday school teacher and has held office in her church. Eating lobster, shrimp, and assorted seafood; Leviticus 10 states, “And all that have no fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you.” If you've ever eaten at a Red Lobster or any sea food place or even just gone fishing you've broken this one. Losing your virginity before marriage; Deuteronomy 22:20-21 state, “But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die…”Most of the women I know would be dead if this were enforced. A couple more things the bible says of note, If a woman is raped she is supposed to marry her rapist. God sure does treat women poorly doesn't he? and if you handle pig skin on the Sabbath you will be put to death. That would make Sunday afternoon football real interesting wouldn't it. So you can see that trying to claim something should be illegal because the bible says so is just plain silly. I'm going to guess that most of those who believe same sex marriage is wrong because the bible says so also have broken most if not all of the laws listed above.

Condolences to a local Family

We here at Candidradio would like to send our condolences to the Family of local high school athlete Daniel Lule. Lule was a football player for Spring Valley Hall High School and collapsed during practice on Wednesday afternoon. He died soon after at St. Margaret's Hospital in Spring Valley. Lule was seventeen years old and died from an enlarged heart that was undetected. The death of someone is sad enough but when it happens to someone so young it is especially sad.
