The rest of your post is you making assumptions.
Actually, suggests is as conclusive as you can get in science. When evidence suggests something, that means it "points" to that thing, and no alternative. You should learn English and then scientific lingo before you attempt to address such issues.

Is it that your spirit can not accept that your mind and heart have deceived you?
Could it be that he who judges the heart and mind is dealing with you according to your ways?
You are conflating your entire assertion here. When something is a threat to humanity, a threat to equality, a threat to our advancement, then it must be addressed. Religion, specifically christianity in the US, has become a major threat to the species now, and thus, it must be addressed. Present evidence supporting your religion or cease trying to push your "morals" based on the small portion you follow as law. It's that easy, live as the Amish do, or stop being irrational.

Yes, you are point on. Theocracy is a threat to or advancement. Even the early bible writers as ignorant that may seem even thought so.

Genesis chapter 11

4They said,“Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” 5The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.

6The LORD said,“Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.

<quoted text>I didn't say that.

But if a homosexual couple came into a grade school on some kind of "family day" or "family week" and talked to the kids for a few minutes about their life as a couple that should be no more of a problem than if a it was a straight couple. And it would actually be far more appropriate since most kids don't hear about that stuff in a positive light.

Religious traditions are hostile to this idea, which creates a hostile environment for homosexuals. We need to change that.
I didn't think much of it on a college level. But I don't agree with public schools teaching it to minors. This is something that parents aren't going to agree on, so it should be left to the parents to teach their children.

The threats to humanity were posed by the Atheist regimes of Joe Stalin, Benito Mussolini,Mao Ze Dung ,Pol Pot and other Atheists.

These are responslble for the deatha of hundreds of millions of innocent civilians.

History will confirm that it was the Chrisdtian Western World that prevented our planet from being overrun by the heathen hordes...

Whatever all of you might claim as to your excuses for being here,you are wasting your time.

No one knows who you are,what your plan of action is,where you may be reached, what you might hope to accomplish and how that might be achieved.

Your audience is composed of under 10 Christians who will totally disregard the foolishness you are so fond of spouting

So,,,,,,What have you accomplished these many years of spreading foolish ideas to an audience that places your credibility between --0 and O.

It is not our responsibility to provide you with evidence.

If you want evidence,it is your responsibility to search for it.

All you pointed out were vague talking points.
You don't like decadence? Iran would be a dream country for you.
You put homosexuality in line with decadence, why? Why not just call it an abomination like the fundies, because that is exactly what you sound like right now.
And there in lies the rub... And the down fall of a society is the end result of your view.. We have seen pockets within the country where such views have led to their own demise and the falling of entire civilizations in the past due to such views becoming wide spread...

And of course you don't give a damn what I and others think about such things as long as you understand I and others don't give a crap about what you think about such things and will continue to push back against the destruction of the nation...

<quoted text>You do understand that Protestantism is exactly what you're describing right? That's the whole point.

So your church making the claim that it has the direct line to god is not different than any other church doing the same god-damn thing.
No it isn't the same, terrible explicative, thing.
Even the founders of some of the main denominations today were quoted as saying they knew that the church they were starting was not completely correct, but it was better than anything on the earth at that time. Roger Williams even said that until angels and apostles restored it, Jesus' church would never be on earth again.
The LDS church claims just that, that it is a restoration of the primitive church, restored by Jesus Christ and His apostles.
It does not claim to be another denomination that attempted to correct the misinterpretations of other denominations, but a complete restoration led by Jesus Christ Himself.

Your inability to produce a cogent sentence is a threat to the educational standards of the species. Your complete and total lack of comprehension of such matters of politics only supports what your linguistically challenged statements suggest. Then you claim that it is my responsibility to find the evidence of your claim, it is your claim, you must provide the evidence of such, no one else is responsible for that. I discard your claim, your god is merely an extension of your own ego.

If this was in any way an accurate assessment of the situation, you would be capable of providing evidence of these assertions. Since you are unable to do so, they are no more valid than any of the thousands of other such claims made by the followers of the millions of other gods.

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that reminded of you, except that instead of "John 3:16" I figured yours probably says "Genesis 3:16."

This country was founded on Christian principle. we survived many years through thick and thin keeping God as our foundation beliefs. Have you noticed how we started slipping since that atheist woman named Madelyn Murphy started the atheist feeling so many years ago.
Before she died she repented of her sins and ask JESUS to forgive and save her soul. Pretty ironic isn't it? He never turns you down like we do HIM. John 3;16

You are welcome. I enjoy sharing what God has done in my life with others.

Everyone should be given the opportunity to experience what God has prepared for those who seek him..

Of course, there are those who will not accept the message...

We merely plant the seed,It is God who gives the increase.

I do agree with some of what was said. Although the heart don't lie , it does however cause much harm at times , if it is followed.

Nope, that is just you twisting my words as usual. I spoke of teaching not to bully homosexuals. You really seem to blend your propaganda with what we say. The delusion is large in this one.

That you would not understand is quite obvious by your having to ask the question......
If you can make the connection, why can you not explain it? I cannot read your mind, and you cannot articulate what you think.
