Re: "If the KKK opposes gay marriage, I would ride with them."

Black Viking ·
AMEN! What I would really like is for conservatives to explain is what exactly gays are taking from me if they get married. I have a position on many contravertial issues, but they all have one thing in common. They directly, or at least indirectly, affect me. If this minister is willing to sell his soul to the Klan just to suppress someone that has nothing to do with him, I say why wait for thier approval? Grab a sheet, burn a cross, and get on with it!

EP, Actually, I'm not surprised. The sample is very likely self-selecting, but it is important for all that.

There's a problem with this analysis. The Pharaoh of Moses' time did indeed have a Firstborn Son, who died in the last of the ten plagues. Akhenaton more closely parallels the pharaoh who was living during Joseph's time--especially considering the religious makeover of the times of Akhenaton. Pharaoh in Joseph's time had some pretty compelling dreams and interpretation was only possible through God who used Joseph to accomplish this. It is then entirely likely that Pharaoh went mono...
