No. He was talking about subhuman scum.

Slang words definitely are real words. Maybe you're trying to say that they are impropper? But, clearly slang words are not imaginary words.

Yup, I was using it as an insult, true enough. Then again you were assuming I was gay when I am not, correcting my word that was actually the word I meant to use and you missed the way I posted your own post back to you (instead you thought I was trying to be 'religious', I think). Those were not the smartest things to post to me. So when i said 'idiot' well... that's why.

<quoted text>
I am sure you are very nice in the real world. I don't throw harsh words around lightly. But, since this is an annonymous forum take it for what it is - nothing 'personal' or the real 'you'. The beauty of this forum is that you can safely let it out what ever it is.
Those who are open minded can have their views and understandings changed. That is the most impressive thing I have experienced and what keeps me coming back.
So just go easy friend, I can like the real you and still completely disagree with your annonymous postings, right? Peace.

LOL no slang words are not real words they are made up words given meaning from people who used abbreviated versions of real words. Please talk to an english teacher on this one.
It would take me too much time to fully explain it to you.

BTW i was in Daley Plaza when they unveiled the -Pablo Picasso. statue. Ugliest thing i ever saw. Its a shame too because Chicago is loaded with cool statues and other art objects. LOL i once almost got kicked out of the Science Museum. for posing with an exhibit.

believe it or not it is true i was trying to be nice to you when i said that
No good deed goes unpunished believe what you want.- i have no reason to lie about something like that

we get a lot of pretenders in here that say they are not gay but soon enough they give it away. So i don't really take people at that anymore. Besides it doesn't matter as you admit you are out to insult me anyway so why would i care if you're gay or not. As far as i've seen you're just another person who insults me.

i don't mind if you differ in opinion from me But i could live without the insults . They serve no purpose in stating an adult opinion. If you are just going to insult then don't expect to be treated with respect afterwards.

But every word is made up. Usage is what gives words meaning. Dictionaries are always adding words. Even slang words. Respectfully, perhaps YOU should speak with a linguistics instructor to understand this better.

Be careful because there are more than a few ways to insult people. You don't just need to use a harsh word or a swear word. I daresay some things people have posted are quite insulting without any cuss words.... have you potentially insulted any reasonable folks with your own posts? Remember, intent is not required.

ROTFL yeah its easy to see why you're not like me.
the insults would drive you nuts
i dont insult others they just claim they are being insulted to make it sound like it goes both ways. When in truth it don't.
The Christians in here have been far more tolerate then any gay in here.
Guys like you are pretenders. See it all the time'
it works like this
Pretenders like you come in and say they are straight but have no problem with gays and usually they'll say they are religious or at least knowledgeable on the bible.
After a while they drop the past Christian part and stick with not gay but no problem with gays.
Then later they start saying minor insults about Christians usually in conversations to a gay person. Then still later back at a christian to complain and say are not fair or some other BS comment. Like you do.
I really don't care. I just think the pretending part is a waste of time on your part.
You never been interested in real conversation. You just waited until now to jump in and join your other gay buddies in the trash dept. Feel better now ?
You really aren't paying attention are you. I'm not for homosexuality or gay marriage, been saying it. So if I'm pretending then you're pretending.....come on dude atleast stop acting like a kid. What I've said is that times have changed and you might as well get used to it. You're not a christian, not a real one anyways. You love acting like god and telling evetyone they're pretending, you're pretending....come on we can all act like children. As far as me not being able to handle insults. I'm not on here daily asking for it. Nor would i even consider ir from ananymous people on a website, as I've saif before I'm not a kid. If internet insults are that big of deal to ya maybe you should think of a new hobby.

God judges us and decides if we go to heaven or not.
But God also allows us to make judgement calls in our lives its the free will thing.
it why its ok to have courts system that can even punish with death penalties etc.
so its perfectly ok for all of us to judge how we feel about each other.
God expect that.
get over it.
now as for your priest i think what he is doing is a sin that God will decide on.
would i hang out with him no way. He probably is as creepy as you are.

no game here.
I just post about what you wrote.
you just get mad because you keep finding yourself retracting your words.
why is that my fault ?
take your time and think about what you want to say before you jump in.

be thankful that i don't jump on you like everyone does to me.
you couldn't handle what i face every day in here.
so think about that before you want to get mad at me again.

no question words get added to the standard dictionary every year. That word just wasn't one of them. I still stand by what i said. Its slang and not an acceptable word.
Words are important they mean things. That is why writers and advertisers try not to use slang.

You are nice now but that hasn't always been the case and you yourself admit to doing insults. But i'm a nice guy to. So we'll see how long this last. is that fair enough.

Some people like Dusty for example are going to view my opinions as insulting just because they differ from his own. I can't prevent that. Their definition of insult is different then my own.
I'm not insulted by a difference of opinion. But i do think swear words , put down words , name calling , impersonation these things are an insult.

the unfair part is when so called pretenders come in here and say they aren't against anyone and that they are totally open minded but will jump all over me and never say a word to someone like Dusty swearing away at me.I have no respect for that kind of person. Dusty to his credit does not pretend to be open minded.

God allows for humans to make judgement calls within their life.
That is why we have a court system.
WE did you get that this time WE all are allowed to make judgement calls.
we judge who we feel safe with and who we should be fearful of.
we judge who we love and who we hate
we make judgement calls all the time GOD ALLOWS THAT
What God meant by the Let he who cast the first stone was not that we couldn't ever judge but that we should be careful doing so. That we should look into our hearts to find forgiveness towards others. Maybe by that forgiveness then to spare that person.
But some people go beyond that boundary. That is why we lock up criminals.
That is why we don't let our kids play with strangers.
That is why its OK for me to decide i don't really like you.
I find you to be hateful towards anyone who oppose your gay beliefs.
You accuse me of judging you but you judged me before i even read your posts.
now do you still want to keep going on this. We had this same conversation over and over again.

there is nothing Christian or religious about you in any way shape or form.
not an insult just an observation from your own posts.

as for me i was and still am for civil unions with full benefits for gays
said that since day one but you ignore that fact.
i'm not against gays but you and others have stated so many times that i am against gays newbies in here believe it without even asking me my views.

what i am against is gay marriage.
Marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman

No, marriage is NOT between one man and one woman. That's a reality. You'd LIKE it to be so, but it isn't that any more. Your Church can retain "Holy Matrimony", but marriage is a civil event, not a religious one.

I know that you've repeatedly stated that we should be pursuing Civil Unions, and I know that you THINK I've ignored that. I have not ignored it once. Not once. I've told you that we ALREADY have marriage equality, and to go backward to Civil Unions would be silly and stupid. Further, separate, but equal, has never ever, ever, ever, ever, been equal.

Earth Angel,

Oh Forrest, sweet pea...and I call you Forrest as a term of endearment. I mean who doesn't love Forrest Gump? The character was a really sweet man, just not very bright...much like you. I think in real life you are probably an old softie and quite harmless.

As for your claiming to be a Christian (and a poor poor persecuted one at that), your words here prove otherwise. Going to Church on Sundays doesn't make you a Christian, just like standing in a garage doesn't make you a car. I think you are going to have a lot of explaining to do regarding your treatment of others here come judgement day....
