I can and if you cannot, don't do this because you will end up disappointed. But my days of this are long behind me unless my fiance has a kiln accident
Kelly. If rewards like bribes and affection are offered for good, obedient and righteous beliefs and punishment and pain is promised for noncompliant, nonconformist or individualistic beliefs then that is not ? unconditional? love.
Oh PLEASE. He was a religious CULT LEADER. No one said he was Christian.
An interesting question there is: If Christianity hadn't risen to prominence, what would that mean for Islam?
He's not going to get past Warriors if he goes there
If you ever were to read Hobbes, I think you'll find that he said no such thing. What he did infer is that, in order to ensure the sanctity of the social contract, a strong, unbiased guiding hand is essential.
I'm sure it's a combination of both, and your friend should maybe just be kind and gentle with her for a while.
The Blood-Soaked Cross conquered Western Civilization. Gods were dethroned,
Isn't that the weirdest freaking standard? I don't get it. A woman talking about her own experience yet she still has to include the man's perspective. We can't ever just speak our truth.
Feelings for you? Yes, it's called pity.....
He didn't sell them wedding cakes in the past. They wanted a wedding cake that he regularly made for straight couples, and even dogs. He has no problem making the cake for a wedding. But if it's two gay people getting married, he has a problem.

Thank you for your thoughts, Lois. As I stated in the OP, my parents raised us to be colour blind. My first exposure to racism was in the mid '80s while I lived in Texas for a year. I was flabbergast to find out that black and mexican people where paid approximately 25% less than whites for the same work! I couldnt believe it! I actually asked a coworker who was mexican and she laughed at me! I was embarrassed to have been so naive. I began to notice how they pooled together in the cafetria at lunch time and remembered how awkward than same coworker had been when I asked her to sit with us at lunch a few weeks previously. I was about 25 at that time and had grown up in a predominantly white small town in Massachusetts where my best friend was a Puerto Rican. I had never been popular at school and gravitated towards Juanita and another white girl who was overweight and walked with a limp. I saw discrimination, but never racism. I was teased because I was taller than everyone in my class by about 4 inches. I was called "giraffe" by all the boys. They didnt catch up til grade 8! Anyway, thank you for your thoughts, Lois. ???????
We are not back to- we still are are "
Again, wrong. The terrorism will be here, you think that ISIS can't recruit in America, especially as you have just pissed off every Muslim American? I am familiar with all 3 of the Abrahamic religions, and they all can lead to terrorism. And they do.
I think the pooty is messing with the fruit.
So Trump using them to show how great Trump is makes them valid now, and Trump using them to show Obama was not doing well made them invalid then?
We don?t need to what if it. Does a cause precede a reaction?
Unbelief is not the natural position to take on any subject. To theorize you need to incorporate beliefs into your mindset. It is dumb to condemn all belief to attack my religion. I suggest you find another way. (You are just upset I don't take what you say as a fact uncritically.)
I like how offended everyone gets bc a mama made some cute but real project about being a mama. It's all "what about what dads do?" well, we aren't talking about dads in this particular article but if you'd like to focus on dads feel free to post something of your own.
Voters gave republicans the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014 to STOP Obama policies not to pass them! The same thing happened to a greater degree in 1994 when Clinton tried to cram Hillarycare down our throats!
So... if it didn't happen it's not really reasonable to accuse God of those murders, right? So what you're saying is not only did God not kill "hundreds of millions of babies" but God didn't even kill the smaller number I'm arguing for?
No, but their race is a protected class, as is their religion and heritage. A black sculptor could not discriminate simply on the basis of them being white, but refusing to create an expressive work for a specific event (namely the KKK rally) is different. His refusal isn't based on race, but on his work being used to celebrate the theme behind an event he objects to.
False, but we know that you love falsehoods, illogic, and irrationality.
Peter likes his rage-ahol don't take it personally that he's strawmanning you.
Evidence? I see no evidence.
And add to the debt as a result. Brilliant! Wait - are you a Republican?
"Foreigners know your history. That is why they stay shy of you. you are arrogant and disrespectful to them."
I believe that the personal god you choose to follow is a path to god. It is like a car...it doesn't matter if you drive a red car or blue car as both will get you to the store.
Or even one syllable.
That's the model for practically every religion so that the priests can keep control.
Why waste emotional energy?
