Whatever became of Ms.Carrie Prejean?

It was hilarious how this site and many Christians posting here and elsewhere held her up as a shining example of Christian womanhood simply because she spoke out against homosexuality. Yet, when her very adult photos and sex tape were made public, nary a word was heard from this site nor Christians who once defended her.

So much for the Christian morality and integrity, I guess :-) :-) :-)

It was, was it?

She IS a shining example, one reason being that she DID speak out against homosexuality AFTER she was asked to speak out.

To borrow a page from the manual used by those who choose to claim that they are homosexual:

How does it affect you and YOUR life?

Again, how are YOU involved in all this?

Dear Incredible person

I don't have time nor the energy for trolls.

Gingrich? Really?

Translation: "I don't have answers for Mr. Incredible and I've run completely outta substance, and, so, I'll just resort to calling him a 'troll.'"

If you have no time, nor energy, for me, why did you take the time and energy?

Yes Brendan,

There were apparently 203 posts on the Gingrich topic

I'm certainly skeptical about this list though. From my observation of reading some of the topics, I would have thought that some of the trolls posting here have made this many post on just one single topic alone.

Further, I don't understand how none of those tiresome homosexual threads didn't make the list. When you have one poster making over 100 some post.

Day by day, this site proves to be more and more a revelation…


Soooo -- not that it matters to me whether somebody thinks I'm a "troll" cuz I'm gonna post no matter what -- somebody who has a lot-ta say is a "troll" just cuz he replies to other posts??? I mean, doesn't everybody who posts expect a reply?? Or should they expect to say something and not be challenged?

My experience is that people say a poster is a "troll" only when those people don't agree with that poster; it's a way to distract from the fact that the alleged "troll" is hitting a nerve.

If I remember correctly, we maxed out the limit for the Maine Same-Sex Marriage board at 286 posts.

And yet the Maine Same sex thread is not listed here. Proving once again there is really an integrity issue with this site.
