"EXCELLENT! I had heard about Maryland but hadn't heard the results from other states. Apparently, the Washington state vote is still up in the air, but Maine passed their proposal as well and Minnesota rejected a…"
I finally did delete your discussion in Justice For All, and reposted with a more brief synopsis, due to my concerns for Terms of Service / Fair Use issues.

Jonathan, welcome to Paradigm Lost, it is based on a conference sponsored by a group of people who believe our economic and political systems are broken. They have very good tapes and transcripts of speeches, but the really fun part is finding someone I have not heard or read before and finding what other things they have to say.

I have joined this site in an attempt to find other rational individuals, such as myself, and to promote a current charity drive that I am trying to get going for the Oklahoma tornado victims. I have managed to get many groups from around my area, including the Beyond Belief Foundation to back me on this endeavor.
I am located in Newnan, Ga and have my own atheist group entitled "Coweta County Atheists". I am currently being backed by Spaulding Co.…
There is a video of the Pope's 'exorcism' caught on film. The man isn't demon possessed, there are likely no 'real' demons. He's just delusional and doesn't want to accept personal responsiblity for his own behavior for his own dysfunctional life.
There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
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.
