They also have courses in Philosophy and Star Trek "Georgetown University", The Art of Walking "Centre College", Daytime Serials: Family and Social Roles "University of Wisconsin", Joy of Garbage "Santa Clara University", The Science of Superheroes " University of California at Irvine", Zombies in Popular Media "Columbia College, Chicago", The Science of Harry Potter "Frostburg State University", and even one I would enroll in, Cyberporn and Society "State University of New York at Buffalo". In College you pick and choose if you want to waste your time with nonsense. They have enough with real studies trying to keep up with the rest of the World. Wasting their time studying nonsense and falling even further behind is a bad idea.

Some colleges even offer courses in Elvish (language from Lord of the Rings).

I have to admit, it is pretty funny is that you cite the length of my relationship (which is longer than MANY heterosexual "jesus based" ones), then demand I repent of love as those love is a sin.
Do you think a long term relationship can function without love? If you do, I feel sorry for you.
The fact that I have been in a committed, loving relationship for that long must gall you, since it proves your beliefs wrong that homosexuality is all about sex and humping. It isn't. It is about love and companionship - just like any heterosexual relationship.
I am very proud that my life can serve as a glaring fact to disprove your dogma.
I have no doubts you love the guy...
I have loved a few myself!
I just know the truth of it, and now I love my wife, and VERY Happy!
You do whatever you want, believe whatever you want, but I Pray
You wake up to the Truth!

Good Early Morning , to all... Hope you at least wake up this morning...
There's only now…
There's only here...
Give in to love...
Or live in fear...
No other path...
No other way...
No day but today...
No day but today."
Just as long as we rise.

Lets us all eat cupcakes today (just the nonfat kind.lol)
There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with cupcakes, several cans of root beer and started on his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he saw an elderly woman. She was sitting on a park bench watching the pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed the lady looked hungry so he offered her a cupcake. She gratefully accepted and smiled at him.

Her smile was so wonderful that he wanted to see it again, so he offered a root beer as well. Once again she smiled at him. The boy was delighted!

They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling without saying a word.

As it began to grow dark, the boy realized how tired he was and wanted to go home. He got up to leave but before he had gone no more than a few steps, he turned around and ran back to the old woman, giving her a big hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.

When the boy arrived home his Mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked, "What has made you so happy today?" He replied, "I had lunch with God." Before his mother could respond he added, "You know what? She's got the most beautiful smile in the whole world!"

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was stunned by the look of peace on her face. He asked, "Mother, what has made you so happy today?" She replied, "I ate cupcakes in the park with God." And before her son could reply, she added, "You know, he is much younger than I expected."

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring; all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

Take no one for granted and embrace all equally with joy!

You are a bold faced liar!
Oh, the ten commandments no longer apply because they are in the old testament.
It must be miserable to be ignorant of facts!
In case you missed it, Jesus reiterated the Big Ten all though the NT, and said to,
Love God with all your being, and
Love your neighbor as yourself... In this hangs
the Law, and the Prophets!
And when you think about it... it does!

You should read the whole Bible with an understanding of history, culture, and even language. Even when the Bible (not necessarily God) says homosexuality is wrong, it's NEVER okay to use force to ban it.
No! You use Logic, Information, and GOOD teaching to get rid of it!
I have read it, and God cleaned me of perversions...
If God got rid of my homosexual desires...
It MUST be an Abomination in His eyes!

Yourean idiot. The fathers of the usa included separation of church and state. The usa was formed by people who were seeking freedom From religion. If you really are a firefighter and chose to do that job knowing the risks, I hope you die in a fire to save the rest of us from your delusional rants about your imaginary god .
"I hope you die in a fire"?
I guess, nasty is as nasty does!
I've seen things come around and bite those that send them out!
I Hope you do NOT die in a fire, and I Hope it's the Firefighter that pulls you out!

If you get hatred from the Bible, then you're not reading it right or even understanding it. God does NOT say it's okay to ban homosexuality. lol! The Bible teaches a lot about personal responsibility, not redistributing that responsibility.

No! You just don't understand the Bible as a whole!
You have to figure out...
Who was God speaking too?
What was God saying?
Why was God saying it?
God did tell the jews, that if crtain people lived "with"
them, that they had to observe certain rules, and laws, but
NOT all of them, as they were NOT Jewish!
Now it's Grace through Faith in Jesus!
When one lets Jesus live in them, you'll know what's right, and what not to do!
I Hope you get to know that first hand!:-)

Hahaha!
I don't get hatred from the Bible....
I do get,
Man's heart is deceitfull above all!
Man is wise in his own eyes!
God gave us His word to live by!
.
In the Words,
"Choose Righteousness unto Life, or
Sin unto death, choose Life, and Live!"
to be pretty compelling in what NOT to do!
.
We do have free will, and telling those that sin
to repent, and be redeemed to God... Is Very loving!
What they do with it is Their choice,
And always will be
Yes and Amen

OOHH, well that's a different story then. It's okay for non-semitcs to do things you disapprove of, since the OT was written by, for and about the Jewish tribes.
