I plan on moving on. I did not write 214187 and never have been a drugger, prostitute and only drank on occasion. My husband is very upset over someone changing my posts in here and we think it may be Frank Rizzo since he seems to be an antagonist and not contributing to this forum. I have not yet contacted anyone outside of my family and friends on this but may soon. The bottom line is if homosexuals followed Christ and what was written in the Scriptures they could shed themselves of being gay and find themselves under the grace of God.

I gave up alcohol, drugs and prostitution over 5 years ago when I discovered Christ. I know first hand what it is to be a reborn Christian and embrace His power and glory. Gays need to do the same.

I do not know for sure who you are that are changing my words, but we are looking into this for this is totally wrong. I never drink anything at all, but water and tea. I never mentioned Frank Rizzo at all. You are taking things out of context and not sure why you are being so evil in doing this. This is not a fair policy for the forum to allow this kind of treatment. I think that I know who is doing this and it may be more than one, but my husband is checking on this right now.

The first thing you should do is NOT point fingers. You might want to notice that Frank Rizzo doesn't post from Sacramento. Most likely it's a person that has posted from Sacramento before. I know of one name, but it's not worth accusing and pointing speculation. I too think it's low when a poster does that. That's why I got registered, had the same problem. Didn't sue anyone, RiccardoFire is not my real name, don't make a living off of that name. Good idea to move on. Maybe Westboro has a better site for you and your mad husband.

It is not logical to allow SSM but not polygamy and incest marriage. Perhaps it is you who needs a logic course.
Frank Rizzo, someone again is changing what I said a few minutes ago and they used your name that you may be writing on my posts, but I did not write that and they changed alot of what I said. I just wanted you to know. They have my name on the post with no number because I think it makes it look like I wrote myself. Someone is using my name.

How the hell did I get dragged into this? Too funny right? Blame Frankie. Then I get banned. And if I ask why they say because it's my fault. I deserve it! If I don't want to get banned stop violating TOS. Priceless!

That's why I like these silly jackasses. But let's blame someone new for a while, like Jizzy. That would be fun! It's all Jizzy's fault.

If I'm suddenly gone, it's Jizzy's fault.

It ain't me. I don't read your overly wordy and moronic posts but I caught my name while skipping over yet another of them.

I find it very funny that I get blamed is all. No harm. I'm cool, I like it. It amuses me.

Do you ever read the Bible, because you really do even have a clue what I am talking about. You must be attending one of those so-called churches that teach what you want to hear and not what the Scripture teaches of which Apostle Paul did write about.
I did not say that I was perfect and if I did, please tell me where? I said that we do not practice sin as sin is defined in Scripture mainly found in Galatians Chapter 5. In everything that our family does, we think right aways "does Jesus approve of what we are doing". We have been living that type of life for many years. I also did say that in First Corinthians Chapter 5, Apostle Paul talks about what should happen to a Christian if he falls from Grace and it is very clear what God expects. I also quoted from First Corinthians Chapter 3 which talks about building your foundation on Christ. He says "Are you building your foundation on wood, hay or stubble or are you building your foundation on gold, silver or precious stones?". Wood, hay and stubble is not referring to sin as sin is defined in Scripture, for the Scripture says that "Should we sin that Grace may abound? God forbid. Wood, Hay and Stubble is referring to things that do not please God at times like getting upset for something that you could work out. Being mad at a friend and not working it out etc. First Corinthians chapter 3 makes it very clear that if you put on your foundation of wood, hay or stubble (not pleasing to God), you will still be saved, yet so by fire, but there are so many verses pertaining to sins that will not be forgiven if you contine in them in Galatians Chapter 5 where it says clearly talking about sins of the flesh and they will not be forgiven in verse 17-21 and it ends up that they which do such things shall not inheret the Kingdom of God.
We believe that if we walk in the Spirit in everything that we do, we will not fall into sins of the flesh. We are extremely careful in all that we watch on TV, listening to Radio and not talk about things that God would feel that are lustful. I do not understand why a person who says that they are a Christian would not know this in the first place. Do you think for one moment that God who is our Creator would just let things of lust slide and not punish them that do those things? If that is what you believe then I pity you.
you're the one that proclaimed themselves to be free of the sins described in the bible.

....and you're not "walking in the spirit" in everything you do. i can plainly see that in your posts here. stop fooling yourselves with this sanctimonious attitude.

Frank I did not write your name on my post, I wrote another note to you after I see what happened. I did not report you either. I have actually not reported anyone person. I let topix know that someone out there is changing my words continually and I wanted them to check on this ASAP. Believe me, I will not report anything that you have said. By my husband's request, I am going off the forum, but I am trying my best to correct the comments about whoever is doing this to me. I really do not know that they banish anyone. I have only been on this forum for 1 month and so have you been banished before? Perhaps, that is what they will do to me also because I quote Scripture, but it will not make any diffence because my husband wants me to go to another forum. In this country now, Scripture is being thrown out of schools, some churches ( I use to attend one & had to leave because they did not believe in the Old Testament), government buildings etc., but as I told you, my husband wants me to go off at the end of today. If you see something else, please do not pay attention because I would not do that to you. I was going to have someone looked into last evening, but now I do not think they had anything to do with what happened. Topix usually takes a few days to get back, so I hope they will find who is trying to ruin my life on the forum, but regardless, it is not worth my time or energy anymore and certainly not my health. Thanks Frank.

sent packing? gee, must've been after they worked together to orgainze the march on washington, or perhaps form the Southern Christian Leadership Council...or maybe because some nutjob assassinated MLK in 1963....or maybe he decided to go and head a new trade union movement as the AFLCIO invited him to do after the civil rights act of 1964 was passed....

"Wilkins also feared that the fact that Rustin had been imprisoned several times for both refusing to fight in the armed forces and for acts of homosexuality, would be used against him in the days leading up to the march. However, Martin Luther King and Philip Randolph insisted that he was the best person for the job.

Wilkins was right to be concerned about a possible smear campaign against Rustin. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, had been keeping a file on Rustin for many years. An FBI undercover agent managed to take a photograph of Rustin talking to King while he was having a bath. This photograph was then used to support false stories being circulated that Rustin was having a homosexual relationship with King.

This information was now passed on to white politicians in the Deep South who feared that a successful march on Washington would persuade President Lyndon B. Johnson to sponsor a proposed new civil rights act. Storm Thurmond led the campaign against Rustin making several speeches where he described him as a "communist, draft dodger and homosexual".

Most newspapers condemned the idea of a mass march on Washington. An editorial in the New York Herald Tribune warned that: "If Negro leaders persist in their announced plans to march 100,000-strong on the capital they will be jeopardizing their cause. The ugly part of this particular mass protest is its implication of unconstrained violence if Congress doesn't deliver."

The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on 28th August, 1963, was a great success. Estimates on the size of the crowd varied from between 250,000 to 400,000. Speakers included Philip Randolph (AFL-CIO), Martin Luther King (SCLC), Floyd McKissick (CORE), John Lewis (SNCC), Roy Wilkins (NAACP), Witney Young (National Urban League) and Walter Reuther (AFL-CIO). King was the final speaker and made his famous I Have a Dream speech.

Rustin was highly valued by the trade union movement, and when the AFL-CIO decided in 1965 to fund a new civil rights organisation, the Philip Randolph Institute, he was asked to be its leader. Names after his close friend, Philip Randolph, Rustin worked for the organization until 1979.

In his final years Rustin was active in the protests against the Vietnam War and in the gay rights movement. In 1986 he claimed: "The barometer of where one is on human rights questions is no longer the black community, it's the gay community. Because it is the community which is most easily mistreated."

Bayard Rustin died in New York on 24th August, 1987."
