It's not flamebait if it is the truth. Specifically from the article I am referring to:

"At churches like First Baptist Church of Anoka, parishioners believe that homosexuality is a form of mental illness caused by family dysfunction, childhood trauma and exposure to pornography â" a perversion curable through intensive therapy."


And it was Minnesota - not Michigan. Had Michigan on the brain from earlier today.

I live in Minnesota, and this IS happening in Anoka. It has brought on a new legislation to make "Bulleying" illegal. It is a vague law that encompasses any education related events, camps, classes, schools, employees, students, volunteers to got through training and also enforce the "law" Since when did passing a law, cause something to not happen? Example: stealing, cheating, murder, are all against the law. Speeding is illegal. How is a law supposed to curtail bullying?

This is not how Microsoft started the xbox. Xbox was started to become a physical household name in the home. Microsoft saw a way for them to get their hardware into every home in the US, through the games. That's why they put up with xbox losing money for so long, because now they are a leader in the market, and will continue to turn the xbox into the ultimate home media device to eventual control every electronic device in the home. Microsoft is positioning themselves as the leader in the home, and will be the leader in Smart-Home technology....
