As He said it to people in person that did believe. Yeah that makes sense.
Not sure why it matters who he said it to? Fact is, this is what someone needs to say in order for the masses to believe things that are fake. Note all the religions that you think are fake. They use the same sort of propaganda techniques. Coincidence?

Hate Crime is indeed taken very seriously... So what crime has Anton levey done ? has he murdered you, raped you, physically assaulted you, robbed you? I think you are grasping at straws at best, but if you are willing to invest the time, effort, and $$$ into this , knock yourself out. With that being said, do you actually think the proper authorities will consider this a valid and legit threat that could be acted upon/ in other words, does this person KNOW YOU and know where you live? Do you REALLY FEEL your life is in danger? lol
Topix does have TOA's against hate, harrassment and bullying.

And there ARE Federal laws that can used to prosecute people for it.

Also if homosexuals were allowed to marry they would be more likely to be in monogamous relationships. Thus it would be spread less quickly.
That's a little illogical and not a very good reason, because anyone with even a shard of an honest bone realizes, the ultimate, underlying reason that that agenda is even being pushed these days, is far more about the materialisTIC agenda, rather than the moral agenda.

Stop lying to yourself, or I shall not be able to "curtsy" back at ya lol.

Have you ever googled the books that are mentioned in the Bible that we no longer have access to? It's a shame we don't have all those.
I think it's like 31
Seeing as how Jesus never mentioned homosexuality, maybe it is in a lost book and your prophets do not think it is important to ask the holy ghost?

Why does it matter the reasons, the results would still be more people in monogamous relationships.
When society puts homosexuals in the underground, things will be messy. Let them live as others and you might see them acting like others.

Oh and I agree with you about the Trinity.
Only the Holy Ghost can tell us what had been translated correctly. And yes I believe a prophet would have the ability to correct the errors. Joseph Smith began this work but did not finish it.
But it took over a hundred years to translate the one about black people? I think we could have fared better without the help of prophet Brigham. Why does your church still put him on a pedestal?

Fascinating stuff.
Neural networks are a very fascinating study, the biological ones are interesting, but oh so inefficient, considering that our life spans have only recently increased beyond a few decades. The funny thing is how simple the brain actually is, it's not nearly as complex as some people want to believe it is, but it's simplicity is also it's strength, and thus why it's capable of being adaptive. You could actually take a human brain and rewrite the neural network to function exactly like our computers, of course there needs to be a way to keep the brain from degrading on death before that could ever actually happen.

If they habd't made it an issue to start with, it wouldn't now be a (BIG WASTE OF TIME) issue now.

How much time has been wasted by this current admin-on such an already long time been NON-issue.

Just MORE, thirty years behind the times, step backwards to stupidity and regression bullchit.

What next, the "right for women to wear skirts above their knees? 2013!!??"

How do people get so stupid? Of course your idiotic strawman is idiotic.

Having no evidence for something doesn't mean it isn't happening. It means that there is no proof that it is happening.

And yes, I saw your follow up comment. It makes no sense either. Stop failing at basic English.

Anybody with a speck of grey matter realizes that the government cannot continue to give benefits to heterosexual couples and refuse the same benefits to homosexual couples.

Good adjective huh? <and curtsy>.

I have a preposition for you-how about I LET you build me a bottomless well...and then I LET you fill it full of pebbles, but you have to use a pail with no bottom to do it.

It's all about the materialisTIC-just like I mentioned.

Why we needed individual mandate options-you know-the ones opotus shoved out of the way BEFORE they even reaches the tabletops for discussion.

Another example of the current admins MORE wastes of tax payer time and dollars.

So, what you're talking about is kind of the opposite of the technological singularity? Or am I off in left field?

Speaking of the singularity...Want to start a pool for the date of the singularity? It may not happen for another 30 years or so, but Im betting that this thread will still be alive when it does ;-)
