How can you argue with people who think the Bible is the literal word of God, which they believe because the Bible says so?

You can't fix dumb.

Exactly! I agree with that!

James, you know the answer to this one as well as I do: you can't argue with someone who is so married to their delusion that reality is just another inconvenience to them.  In the case of the judge who "mocks god" as the sign above alleges, I would tell those who hold to that allegation that their argument has no legal standing, and issue my opinion based on the facts of the case.

You cant reason with unreasonable people, nor can you discuss rationally with the irrational.

Yes, you cannot reason with them at all. No amount of talking to them will work.

James, out of curiosity, what were these bug butters protesting?  And where?

It probably is an old Prop 8 photo but the point I was making remains the same.

I also wonder how many of these same people carry health insurance?  

Isn't buying such insurance an act of denouncing God, as you are told to believe and the Lord will provide and is not any sickness God's will?  

Where was this picture taken?

I googled on "Judge mocks god" and came up with this link....  One sign states "Yes on 8" so it looks like it's the Prop 8 campaign in 2008.  A sign identical to that sign can be seen in the photo section of "protectmarriage.com" so I suspect that photo is a couple of years old.  I am not the poster here so I can't be sure.

Thanks James and Sentient.  Opposition to Proposition 8.  As I recall, brought to you by Mitt Romney's religious brothers and sisters - the Mormon Church.  The same church that said blacks couldn't get into heaven until a "miraculous" revelation by god to their leader that just happened to coincide with the US Civil Rights movement.  What an amazing coincidence!  "Judge Mocks God." If I lived in California, that would be enough to get me to vote the judge back into office.

If these douches were anything other than bigots, they'd put as much effort into banning shellfish, cotton/poly blend cloths or tattoos as they do homosexuals. Guess they only read the one verse in Leviticus.

Yep.  Cherry-picking the bible.  Stupid hypocrites.
