We should do a thread about husband/wife material and "tests" to see if they are. Tehe!
I would add China to that - they consider Christianity, as well as any other foreign religion, a potential source of foreign influence into the country. Hence the state keeps religions on a very tight leash.
I think that and a coupling of better ways to assess mental health. I don't mean to infringe upon their rights, but if you're bipolar and prone to intense mood swings, I don't want you having access to a firearm. Or at least an automatic assault rifle....
Daaaang, Roseanne got canceled already y'all. Bet she wishes she would've sat on them twitta fingahs... sad for the cast.
What kind of pancakes do you like?
Also, the baker isn't catering to a wedding. He isn't there to help. He sells a product. A caterer is one who's there AT the wedding. THEN he'd be attending and partaking in the wedding. But selling a product from his store and never going near isn't attending a wedding.
THIS particular person is why those like me have an issue with all gun wearers. Why should we be subjected to your fears and your guns...I don't care what y'all say, if you need a gun to go to the store, it's time to move
What? A child is a human in infancy. Are you saying unborn children aren't children? What's next? Will you say they are not human? You are severely limiting yourself on the idea of credibility. You have the power to think for yourself. In Islam, you are permitted to rape your wife. That is irrelevant, and incomparable. I want to make it not only illegal under the U.S. constitution but make it illegal to sell the chopped up parts of children under the guise of medical practices as well.
Yes the slaves had it bad and suffered but if they had never been brought here, then the vast majority of today's blacks wouldn't be here. The tribes and villages in Africa were too far apart and culturally didn't mix. They spoke different languages. So before they condemn this nation, they should reflect on the great advantage they were afforded
I didn't ask science - the questions posed in the op are philosophical and existential in nature. Science may not deal with that question, but atheism must in order for it to be a logical worldview.
>>"LGBTQ needs extra bubble wrap something thats foreign to conservative Christians"<<
I don't really care about that. Do you believe what the Bible says? I thought you were an atheist.
You know there are a lot of Christians who reject the trinity doctrine. In the original tongue, all nouns have gender, modern languages like French and Spanish follow this convention. The Father and Son are both masculine, the Holy Spirit doesn't have gender and is referred to as 'it'. It is not a separate being, it's a part of God. Christ was 'with' God in the beginning. John 1:1. Notice too the Holy Spirit is not mentioned in John as being part of the Godhead. Only Christ (The Word) and God Almighty are mentioned.
I didn't say it was wrong. Just sad.
:) Oh, thanks for asking. What I mean by that is you/we/humanity views existence thru "skewed eyes," meaning we apply our personal perspective to "things." It the POV we're "stuck" in.
um, it's not legal though is it. Back then it was, and the orgies that took place in many religions in various places involved children.
Is she potty trained? lol
That's not what it's about. Jesus did sacrifice himself so that who so ever believes in him and the miracle of his resurrection to have the chance to be saved. It's not a get out of jail free card... We aren't supposed to just go against the teachings every day, and then pray at night for forgiveness to have a clean slate. It doesn't work like that. The why is more important than the what. Why you do something, and the truth in your heart is far more important than what you're actually doing. You could be going up on the pulpit, and preaching to the masses, but if your motivation is money, then you are spreading the word in sin, not in love, which is definitely bad in ours, and God's eyes. I am a devout little Christian. God saved my family... And I've seen my own personal miracles. My faith is strong, but I am also a very open-minded person, which makes being faithful a lot more difficult.
there's also this Cup thing tonight
It's about condoning discrimination based on specific characteristics. The world has generally moved on from there. Some have clearly not.
Well, let's see. For a start, you're conflating children being taught religious concepts as facts with having a fictional story read to them by a lady with am Adam's apple. In a library. Second it seems your primary issue is not what that person is reading to the children, but that the person is there at all, and is being presented as a member of society fit to read stories to children. Which, your unwarranted outrage aside, they are. This isn't the school's problem or the children's problem or an 'indoctrination' problem. This is your problem. Gay and transgendered people are being presented as part of our society because that's exactly what they are. You're angry because kids won't hate and fear them the same way you do.
REALLY? Wow. I don't buy stuff from reps. I hate those pyramid schemes and having to go through a rep to buy something. And you still may have to wait for them to get it in ONCE they have enough to place and order for stuff. No, thank you.
I used to think their values represented (many of) my own, but then they took liberalism and bastardized it to benefit themselves. If, for example, the Wynne government had been competent stewards of our provincial bank account ? rather than rewarding themselves and their friends with our money whenever they felt the urge ? and had kept spending at reasonable,
Toronto is a shit hole. I now live in wasteland as a no income earner and loving every fkcing second of it.
It's controlling to the extreme. We are going to have kids on MY timetable and if you disobey there will be consequences.
