"Armed uprising isn't what I have in mind.  I'm thinking of assassinations, shootings, bombings.  I'm thinking of political parties increasingly willing to say to hell with the law, if doing so gets them what they want. …"

"Well actually both. . . you guys are talking about the Civil War in the United States. It did not occur in a vacuum. John Brown (the abolitionist) was fighting as much for the prohibition of alcohol in Kansas as much as it being recognized as a free…"

"I agree in principle. But an armed uprising in modern America, over issues like these, would be stupid."

"I'm going to have to give you a short history lesson on the Civil War. . . Cotton Gin gets invented making cleaning cotton faster (removing the seeds). You could do in a day what it would take slaves a week. So the south needs more slaves to…"

""Again, that's how you see it. But there are others for whom the distinction is--for better or worse--important." And for those others, the distinction is that: A) marriage is religious rite, in which case it falls to the market to…"

"Indeed.  I think we're much closer to real political violence and Caesarism than many realize."

"Cute, but no.  Asking his views on questions of conscience that are very well grounded in historical reality is both germane (as it may help elucidate his views on the subject in general) and focused on the actual, instead of…"

"I think it's telling that you're creating a hypothetical situation here that bears no resemblance to the actual facts of the case.  You're more fussed about hypothetically establishing a principle that might allow the citizens of…"

Milo Morris replied to William James's discussion The Legalisation of Gay Marriage in the group The Great Debate
"The 1st Amendment angle might actually hold some validity. Photography = an art form = expression = speech. Part of the freedom of speech is being able to not speak at all."

Jack Bauer replied to William James's discussion The Legalisation of Gay Marriage in the group The Great Debate
"Who said the issue was even primarily religious, much less wholly religious?  There is a legal component ... and on the legal component, parity is doable.  There are also moral, historical, biological, social, familial, and religious…"

Michael replied to William James's discussion The Legalisation of Gay Marriage in the group The Great Debate
