Protests Against Arizona's Immigration Law To Spread Across California

dherrer,

You're obviously one of the minutemen trying to pose as a Hispanic. You're spouting their talking points verbatim.

You obviously don't understand the implications of this idiotic 'law.'

As a Hispanic/Native American, my family was here (New Mexico/Colorado area) before America was America. As an American, I have the right to travel about freely in MY country of origin without being accused of a crime for merely walking in my country.

I'll be damned if I'm going to have my rights violated just because some idiotic rednecks in AZ think that living in a police state is fine with them. You better believe I will be joining millions of Americans in boycotting this backwards redneck state.

If you really are Hispanic ( I doubt it, I see the minutemen pull this crap all the time) you are welcome to let them treat YOU like a second class citizen, but as for me, hell no they're not going to!

I suggest you look up the 4th amendment,..and then read it.

Protests Against Arizona's Immigration Law To Spread Across California

I for one, hope this law goes into effect in AZ. I can't wait to see AZ go bankrupt. It wont be long before they repeal the law and beg the immigrants to come back. I really want to see Phoenix become a ghost town though. That would be great.

Any town that has tried draconian laws such as this has regretted it. Riverside, NJ is a good example. Immigrants left and the place became a ghost town. Business owners went bankrupt and any who tried to leave couldn't because nobody wanted to buy their businesses.

Yes, AZ deserves this fate. The only downside I see is that when that god forsaken place goes bankrupt we'll have even more rednecks invading San Diego. Not too excited about that prospect.

The Bible And Homosexuality

Having grown up in a fundamentalist christian home and been surrounded with it the last 40 years, I know exactly what their mindset is when it comes to these things.

It is dangerous. The amount of hatred and contempt they have for gay people is scary. And it is all based on the types of things you see in Leviticus.

Yet when you point out other things in that book such as in Leviticus 20 where it says that a parent should stone his/her children to death if they become "recalcitrant" (aka smart-mouthed) they say "Oh thats the Old Testament, the lord came to give us a new covenant so it replaces the Old.' Yet there they are on the street corners yelling "God hates Fags!!"

As for the book of Paul in regards to this topic, the book of Paul was written 250 YEARS after Jesus' death. It is a book of stories that were passed down by oral tradition, and we have all played the game of "telephone" when we were kids.

Not to mention that most people were illiterate during those times and if you wanted a copy of the bible you had to copy it word for word. That work was often done by scribes who were slaves and who were completely illiterate. They were merely reproducing characters they saw on a page. Add to that the fact that some scribes had a political or religious ax to grind and literally took out complete passages or added them as they saw fit.

Enter the Catholic church which for 400 yrs had a complete control over what was considered the 'real' word of god and what was not. This is why books like Philip and Thomas are not in today's bible. Those books described Jesus as someone who was more human than a god. The catholic church couldnt have that. They wanted to push the myth that Jesus was god in the flesh.

The bible itself says that "everything man touches is corrupted," yet these zealots want me to believe that a book whose original manuscripts were lost somehow is still the perfect word of god after all these centuries.

It's time America grew up and stopped believing in fairy tales.
