Sorry for not being clear. I'm not saying that i know that it's something passed along genetically. I have no idea. I'm just responding to the hypothetical question and saying that both evolution and genetic homosexuality can be true at the same time. While I believe you are correct (they haven't found the gay genetics), studies suggest that there is a genetic component.

Sure, that's always a valid point. But once you start picking winners and losers by only issuing licenses and status to one group, what's the compelling state interest in excluding the other?

Prostitution, murder, gambling, age of consent ... which of those are not morality laws? Ima thinkin ... all laws are based in morality. Freedoms exist within a social, then religious, then legal (the order may be wrong, and the level of powers that enforce them) ... code of ethics and morality.

Thousands of years of history, with rules developed to make a society function better ... but you have it figured out they were wrong. "zero bearing on my life as I'm neither gay nor a polygamist." yeah right ... giving entitlements to any "marriages" you don't perceive as influencing your life should be allowed. You know the original colonies demanded their residents attend church…

Morality cannot be legislated. Period. When you start making morality laws, then freedom doesn't exist any more. While some might laugh at using the example, look at the movie DEMOLITION MAN. One of the running gags in that movie is when someone says a "bad word", Big-Brother-Is-Always-Listening computer buzzes and issues a fine for a "violation of the verbal moralities code". If that's…

McDonough County Grain Bin Fire now out

1 year, 1 month ago by Scott Hardy

Had been burning since Monday

The Illinois State Police say that the grain bin fire near Adair, Illinois in eastern McDonough County has been put out, and U.S. Route 136 is now open for normal traffic.

The road had been closed since Monday, with traffic rerouted due to the potential hazard of a grain dust explosion.

No evacuation order had been issued for the town of Adair. But the Illinois State Police did ask several rural residents to evacuate their homes.

The fire started Monday afternoon at the bin, located at the junction of Illinois Routes 136 and Route 41.

The facility is owned by Western Grain Marketing. It can hold up to 1.5 million bushels of corn. Fire officials weren't sure how much corn was in the bin, but crews removed grain from the bin, so that firefighters from seven area departments, including New Salem, Bushnell, Emmet-Chalmers, Colchester, Industry, Table Grove and Macomb Fire Protection Districts could put out that fire. Crews transported water from multiple townships and dumped it into holding tanks for the pump trucks to extinguish the blaze.
