Joel---Will is not just a matter of making choices

Hugh--- NOT JUST, is noted.

Joel---Will is rarely free in most human beings.In most people, the will is free within extremely narrow limits and is conditioned by genes, subconscious responses and environmental influences.

HughBe--- Don't blame people for their actions, is the implication of your words. I am reminded of your parents. Elaborate if you are so moved.
What about my late parents?

Hugh--- In your enlightened mind, do you think it is KIND or humane to STRIP people of their IDENTITY because they do not comply with your wishes?
There's no cure for fanaticism.

If you protest that Messianic Jews are ostracized by rabid Jews in Israel my question to a fanati8cal Christian like you would be this - would the Christian clerics tolerate a Christan who accepts Jesus but who at the same time venerates the Buddha and brings ample evidence to inarguably indicate that many of Jesus' teachings are simply lift-offs from Buddhist books? Would the Christian orthodoxy support a Christian who proves using literary sources that virgin birth, resurrection and raising the dead are common features of all religions and are not exclusive to Jesus' life? Would the mainstream Christian Church tolerate a Christian who equates the transubstantiation with cannibalism?

So, think before you type a comment.

Joel---I have not heard of single case of a 100 percent gay person set straight.

Hugh--- What about a 100% Schizophrenia?
Neither homosexuality nor schizophrenia is curable.

Medication can, if at all, merely suppress many of the symptoms of schizophrenia, not cure it.

People with schizophrenia often suffer terrifying symptoms such as hearing internal voices not heard by others, or believing that other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. These symptoms may leave them fearful and withdrawn. Their speech and behavior can be so disorganized that they may be incomprehensible or frightening to others. Available treatments can relieve many symptoms, but most people with schizophrenia continue to suffer some symptoms throughout their lives.

From a yogic perspective, schizophrenia is either brought on by warped brain wiring leading to hallucinations or in a normal brain it could be a possession that gives rise to all those weird symptoms mentioned above in this paragraph.

On the other hand, homosexuality is a simple inborn sexual condition of a person being sexually attracted to members of the same sex which is neither life threatening nor does it cause dysfunction of behavior where mental, emotional and physical faculties are concerned nor does it make a person a criminal nor does it render a person mentally unstable.

Homosexuality is a simple effeminization of the brain center where sexual orientation is concerned, while schizophrenia is a mental illness with adverse symptoms that can destroy a person's life.

Are you trying to say that homosexuality leads to schizophrenia or vice versa? LOL.

Joel---Intelligence and Hugh are oxymorons.

Hugh--- Massive surprise. After all, Hugh means MIND and you see no connection between mind and intelligence.

Big surprise, Mon.

Love.

HughBe--- SECULAR is NOT a religion. Here is a dictionary's definition. Note, it is not my PRIVATE opinion.

Secular: "not having any connection with religion"
The word "religion" is derived from the Latin word "religare" which means "to bind".

One can bind oneself to god, self, lover, ethics, crime, drugs, family, kids, money, math, nation, secularism, reason or to anything else.

So, you're definition of the word "religion" is toooo narrow, Mon.

Expected.

The world can not and has not been saved by the "dying for the sins of the world" kind of cheap philosophy - Jesus, please take note. Another sign of megalomania.

The symbolic sharing of one's blood and flesh is not a sign of sacrifice but of cannibalism. It is and impotent and a disgusting ritual. Jesus, please take note.
