    Can you believe that squeaky clean Amy actually used an offensive term during her hearings.

    My goodness, how can we allow this women on the High court if she has no regard for this group of people.

    What was that horrible term she used???

    Sexual Preference.
    She should have said Sexual orientation

    A preference means you have a choice
    With an orientation - you do not have a choice.

    Well, it likes looks like I will be adding another term to my
    list of L.E.F.T. (Liberal Education for Terminology.)

    We all know the term should be "sexual sin preference." Although, that will hit too hard since many politicians aren't going to fess up to "adultery" or "fornication." No, in this increasingly God-forsaken world we have to ignore the obvious, that people are drawn to some sins more than others. Knowing that all sin is evil and to be avoided like a damning plague. The world will keep being what it is, it just gets me how to reach them at all. I pray for hearts willing to accept the Gospel now....such a sad and dark world of ruin we live in. We live in a world dominated by beasts we have the duty and honor to reach.

    Except others, like RBG and Biden, also use the term.

    It’s only a negative/offensive term when it’s used by a conservative.

    Isn’t that what it is when one can “identify” as a man today, and as a woman tomorrow? If it’s not a choice, then one can’t just identify differently from one day to the next.

    IMO, the most troubling part of this event is that later in the day Webster dictionary on-line added to the meaning of “sexual preference” the word “offensive”

    peace to you

    To heck with the left. Sin is sin and there is no excuse for it. Having said that, some people are indeed orientated to same sex attraction. I have watched people grow up that I knew they were queer from the time they were 5. They were not raised that way either. I think it's dishonest not to admit that some are from birth bent with unnatural sexual attraction. That in no way excuses their sin if they choose to act on it.
