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 public schools should be teaching mainstream ideas based on the consensus of experts. Within that context, homosexuality is normal. Therefore mentioning homosexuality as a normal human sexual orientation in a public school should present no problem for a parent.

If teaching kids mainstream ideas is problematic for a parent then that parent needs to find a private school that upholds his personally held values. They have bigot schools too, you just have to pay for them.

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.
Ah, I see. You have angels in your church.

I stand corrected.

Don't the wings get in the way of seeing the service if you're sitting behind the angels? Or are they able to make them invisible?

I don't see how a primitive church could pass a building inspection today. Well, maybe in rural Kentucky...

I bet this is yet another reason why a lot of people confuse Mormons with JWs. Both of them claim this "restoration of the real church" thing.

I can make the connection.
Based on your recent comments about blind faith and magic made it abundantly clear that the topic of faith is beyond your comprehension..
There are 2 ways of interpreting your comments;
Either you do not understand the basis for our Christian faith or
You mock those who truly believe.
I suspect that you mock that which you do not understand....
In which case,making the connection for you,would serve no useful purpose.
Do not give that which is holy to dogs and cast not your pearls before swine.
That is some pretty swift dancing to avoid having to articulate your accusations explanation.
You may have fooled your fellow fundies, but it is clear to others you are just running.
Blind faith is not hard to understand. All you have to do is hide from the hard questions and the faith stays with you. It is called denial. Denial to stay in delusion.

<quoted text>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.
"Suggests" in the manner that you wish to use it, could be used by believers to point to a creator. You can't have it both ways.

<quoted text>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.
Evidence of which assertions?

<quoted text><quoted text>What is "teaching" homosexuality and who says they do?

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.
Then speak more clearly. Several posts suggested something different than what you claim you said.

The delusion is large.
When I get behind a few days, I catch up by responding to posts that deserve a response. If I missed one, I must have thought it didn't deserve one, or maybe skimmed too quickly. Sorry. If you want to ask again, I will try to answer.

Heads up, mantle and I will attempt to explain Mike's question to you.

I'm going to spell it out for you very simply.

IF Yahweh is all powerful, can he create a rock he can't pick up?

"Of course he is all powerful," you say, "so yes, he can."

BUT if he is all powerful and CAN NOT pick up something, then he is NOT all powerful.

By the same token, if he CAN'T create a rock he can't pick up, then he is NOT all powerful.

This is called a paradox.
Since neither answer can be true, we must look to the question to find out why.

The question shows us that Yahweh IS NOT all powerful, no matter what you think the correct answer is.
If he is not all powerful, then the bible is incorrect.

This demonstrates that the bible was just written by superstitious goatherders.
"God" disappears in a puff of logic.

Logical thinking. Awesome, it's it?
This question is answered differently than you desire. The answer is: there is no purpose for God to create a rock to simply pick it up. He only creates things that have a purpose that fits in with His will. It is not His will to test Himself, or have you attempt to test Him.

Well, that was disappointing. I've seen you dodge better than this before. It isn't a question of "why hasn't he?" it's a question of "could he?".

Incorrect, you don't seem to want to learn anything, since this has all been explained to you already. That means you are only attempting to discredit something you know nothing of, which is rather ironic, since you clearly know almost nothing about being a Mormon either.

The Chinese story of man and the religious views were written about, documented and taught for millennium before the Jewish/Christian story line.... Before that several civilizations came and went with completely different belief systems... You can tell anyone anything you like and I reserve the right to call such belief Delusional...
True...still the most popular story and believable evidently ... And best selling BOOK ever ... U enjoy thinking this is it and I will continue to b happy knowing that death is not the end.:-)

SCOTUS shoots down DOMA and you could hear a pin drop on here. Where are all the fundies? Aren't we supposed to be arguing about whether it's the end of our country now?

I'm so confused.

It appears that yourself,LOL and Chromiuman have the same schedule for posting on Topix...
Wonder if that is by coincident or by design?
It is odd that all appear on topix at the same time quite frequently.
I would never believe,nor would I allege,that you are all guilty of that which you accuse me off.
Of course that would not make you all guilty,just the one who is attempting to deceive others into believing there are three.

O hell, calm down, I was just joking. Get out from under the bed and sit down. You religies and your bogeyman toooo funny.

It's also funny how you just used the word "accuse", feeling quilty?
