Whether or not somebody is an animal lover is a much better gauge of how much love they have in their hearts than whether or not they believe in sky fairies. Your doggies are all adorable. My dogs are always mutts that I fall in love with at Petsmart on adoption day. We just adopted Ringo back in March. He's cockapoo mixed with who knows what else but he is definitely a lovable little muffin.
When Bono turned five I had that same thought. It's paradoxical, isn't it? Always with pets it's we are worried because we know they aren't going to be with us for very long (like in the case of dogs and mice) or we're worried because they're going to live longer than us (like with turtles and some types of birds).

No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed…
