    Reminds me of a quote by Wm. Shakespeare: "Nothing is either good or bad, thinking merely makes it so" It may be termed a "lifestyle" because procreation is'nt involved.

    I'm an athiest & i don't kill, pillage or rape because I choose not to. I don't need a book to tell me that :confused: . You think something does'nt exist if it has'nt been written down ? The only reason you agree w/ those pricipals is that is conveiniently tied into your religion. On the same note, well over 1/2 of all war's can be directly attributed to religion. Please think before you posting sweeping generalizations & disparage the reasoning capabilities of humans. I regret to say, this thread is an invitation to dischord.

    Shalom Itsik,
    I remember not long ago chatting about sleeping under the stars in the Negev desert, and the climb on the old road from Tel- Aviv to Jerusalaim. You told me about your tour of the Negev that you were going to do in October. Have you got me know? Moved, and changed my name. Can I give you some advice bevakashav, Dont get involved with guns or homophobia, it doesn't fit in anywhere in cycling terms. We, here are licensed to shoot your food if it so pertains. On the other hand same sex relationships are a matter of personal preference, and are personal to the persons involved. There is no point to be gained in ponticating about humanity in it's minority, therefore in this country it's live and let live, and so be it in Eretz Israel when they decide to be more tolerant.

    Sure, I do all the time.

    The Patriot act, Bush senior's gun ban & tax increase (Oh hell, all kinds of Bush senior stuff was evil), no child left behind, homosexual marriage ammendment, just about anything specter, mccain, hagel or lugar do, lot's of stupid shit the publican's have done or tried to do.

    I don't think that there is homophobia amongst cyclists.
    I certainly have not heard of any insults being made against those cyclists who are homosexual.

    I am heterosexual.
    My religion states that the homosexual lifestyle is immoral.
    However, we are also told that, as Roman Catholics, we must be tolerant to people who are homosexual.
    I have no prejudice against homosexuals.

    There are more improtant issues in this world to oppose outright and homosexuality is not one of them, in my opinion.

    Who cares if a cyclist is homosexual? I sure as hell don't. We're all out there together, us against the nuts in cars and trucks, doing something that hurts no one, improves our health, etc.

    I think this thread has worn out it's usefulness. If someone has the energy to care whether the person next to them in the peleton is homosexual or heteresexual, they're not riding hard enough.

    Now, if that other person has a way cool bike, much better say than mine --- well, accidents can happen!:)

    It's like we teach SCUBA diving students. The reason divers always carry knives is in case their dive buddy drowns - we can cut their equipment off and keep it.:D

    Oh goody goody well done Lim. Erevtov vey shalom. god bless the pope, the crusaders, the Sabrees, the druze, david, solomon, ashkenazis in the knesset. Where do you lot of Americans want to start. With the senate. I think we should start off with the simple question, and that is " What is the percentage of the population of US citizens that disagree with Israels illegal actions in stealing the occupied lands?

    I'll give you the answer - none of them disagree with the Jewish/Israeli theft.

    The assimilation is complete.

    Sorry Bert,
    Explain better will you. Douche is a French word for a shower, and is also an aid for vaginal cleansing used in Europe. We like going down, no wonder that you lot need herpes treatment.

    When I saw Demon Rum, it reminded me of that great social writer and observer of humanity in all its frailties. Damon Runyon.

    Oh Yeh, and you don't hear pagans banging on about "God is on their side" and then go about killing people. I agree with the rest though, I must be in a good mood. Who told them they could hijack those nice words gay and pink. They ruined millions of childrens stories, the bastards.

    I agree, There was a couple who lived in the same apartment building as i. Out of all of the units (6), theirs was one of the few w/o any disturbances whatsoever. There are extremist's on both sides but i would submit that homosexuals are more law abiding, by far, than hetero's. There are domestic disturbances, all the time, but few by homosexuals.

    Is it a coincidence, what are the odd's :confused: , that all 3 of the repub's; you mentioned are "calling bush on the carpet" for actions inre: iraq within the last week. With this admin., question them & you are banished (they won't play w/ you anymore) Sounds like a "spoiled kid" mentality. Like when Cheney banished the NYT from travelling on AF2. Don't want to hear dissent? Let me see, who else did'nt like hearing dissent in the recent past? thinking...thinking...thinking...Saddam Hussein :eek:

    Did he really say that? I don't doubt it seeing as we give them a $12 billion "gift" every year. I guess repub's don't mind "kicking in" that part of their taxes every year :)
    No, as far as repub's go, we know that they deem taxes evil, correct?. But as far as how they are apportioned, i believe many won't object to the gift. I had a palestinian friend who, for good reason, objected to it, rightly so.

    That 12 billion gift that Israel gets every year including when Democrats are in the White House? So now the support of Israel is a Republican/Democrat issue?
    Since 1948 Israel has gotten support from the US regardless of the party in power.
