Being gay is not a choice or what people do.

If you don't understand this you will be lost
on this subject and perhaps others.
You need to open your mind.
Do not believe everything your preacher and
your "sacred" texts tell you.
This for yourself, if possible.
Herein lies the problem for most religionists. They either don't accept the fact that it is not a choice to be gay, or if they do, they expect gay people to refrain from sexual activity.

As usual, Huggy is being pedantic. He does not recognize lowercase god. Try the question again with uppercase (as if that should make a difference when referencing an imaginary being).

Maybe because of their high IQ they were treated bad at school.

I understand them.
Thinking "the thoughts of ordinary people are ridiculous" is smug and ridiculous in itself.

As Dickens said, "Mankind is our business!"

Statements such as yours sound elitist in the worst way. Not admirable but beneath scorn.

You sound so low you could walk under a snake with a high hat on.

I believe you only understand them because you were treated badly at school.

Here the majority of people eat between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Those few who eat at 10 p.m. or later are the ones who are going to restaurants but are a bit late because they were waiting some friend(s) who usually are not in time.
Here only children eat at 6:30 p.m.
Here children and old people eat very early.

When I said, "But Mom, in Rome they don't go out to eat until much later," my 80-year-old mother replied, "Well, you're not in Rome!"

Not much I could say to that.

The funny thing is that the NRA is just one bribe or one subpoena away from providing a quasi-registry to the government in the form of their membership roster. Contrary to their phony protestations, the registry already exists.

Vigilance does? Once I was reading an anrticle on Wiki and I found typed something like muahahahahahahah". After few months it was still there. Maybe it was my bad they were having a long strike, isn't it? LOL
There could be a group of volunteer contributors and editors but I wonder if they vision all the wiki pages, and how vast is their knowledge, and how they can know an information that can be as true as false, having nothing to back it up?
Anyone you, me and other people can modify any wiki page and other may let or change it, but still if the information you gave is unknown to the folks even if it wrong you can bet it will be there for long time.
If you don't trust Wikipedia, then I suggest you don't use it.

Everything needs to be footnoted/sourced - just like any other encyclopedia.

No doubt there are things you believe in that I do not.

So I guess we're even.

I don't see them as monotheistic, but rather as monolatristic. So the accusation was that maybe they were no longer monolatristic.
rabbee: well yes, accusing them of being a house of vipers or hasatan would tend to suggest they were worse than that.

did not actually come out and say it, but He was condemning them. as the reason why, the romans were there. because they were, no longer true to G-D.

the facts seem also to indicate this, with most high priests not living long enough to celebrate their 1st year anniversary. and still can't admit, we are doing something seriously wrong.

i mean things got so bad, they started the traditions. of tying a rope to their ankles, and putting jingle bells on their garments. so that if the bells, went silent for too long. well it's time to pull them out, with the rope. cause they ain't coming out, on their own. and if G-D, was that angry. they sure did not want to go in there, to carry their body out.

if you have that many high priest, dying in The-Tabernacle they are definitely doing something wrong. and even the rabeem today, ignore this completely. cause it might, make them look bad.

God did not make man?
Are we an accident of nature?

You said what they did was not normal.
I am speaking of the specific sins of gay people.
As you define it and them.
<quoted text>
Gay people do not make the choice to be gay.
This was explained to you.
<quoted text>
Again, do you not believe that god created man?
rabbee: last i heard, being under the jurisdiction of halooseefer is by choice. they just got themselves, cut from the baal hamolech herd. which is also, by bad choices. if truly you have not chose, TheG-D of TheTorah. then what else have you chosen, as the enemy of G-D here in TheTorah?

do you think, people get cancer or war. because this world believes, in G-D truly? no! pestilence, plague, and famine, are always indications of increasing disbelief. pestilence has been hitting the united states, for quite some time now. and science has you convinced, it is not because of your disbelief in G-D. and lets face some facts here, terrorism is an increase in crime plague rates. and if continued, war and famine will happen. we are already seeing the danger signs of droughts that always precedes significant famine.

rabbee: G-Dlessnes is a choice, to not truly be with G-D. and so shall fall under the conditioning, the conditions and jurisdictions of either hasatan, or ball hamolech, or halooseefer.

I found your post so funny it would be a disservice to even bother with a comment.

I still dont know if you are a troll, or just incredibly sheltered and lacking life experience.

Shavua Tov, ya'll. You know, I can see his point. When Buddhism creates such a tolerant and amiable person as this, it's a wonder everyone doesn't join up and start staring at their navel all day long.
Where do I sign up to become a Buddhist and can I still eat steak?
He is not a Bhuddist, dont worry. However, your point about his meditation practice is spot on.

Wiki is my friend. The best part are the footnotes, especially if they are links.

Anyone with the ability to be discerning can navigate around the less scholarly and more opinionated passages. Not a much different skill than being able to filter the regular press.

A CHILDISH QUESTION IN TRIG:

IN A RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE ABC, LB = 90, PROVE THAT:

Sin (A+B)/2 = COSC/2

SOLUTION:

In triangle ABC, LB = 90,

LC = 180 -(LA + LB)

Divide by 2:

LC/2 = 90 -(LA+ LB)/2

Multiply by Cos on both sides:

Cos C/2 = Cos (90 -(A+B)/2)

But, Cos (90 - X)= Sin X, by theorem,

Thus, CosC/2 = Sin (A+B)/2 ---------proven

LOL.

Agreed.

I like Wiki almost as much as I like Google.

When looking up a movie for example, I will always choose Wiki over IMDB. Much better presentation of the information for me. Good and consistent formatting.

Same as filtering any other source, agreed. And we should use as many sources as we have time for.

You are trying to generalize tea party members, there are some very intelligent people involved.
You can say the same about some Obama supporters, they can not come up with 1 policy that they support.
