Or the public should have instant access to harassment warrants from law enforcement, including an instant fine against Topics, when TOC agreements are not immediately applied or adhered to.

Stay on track, YaA. The verse is about revenge. So is Hell and the Lake of Fire.
No! that verse had nothing to do with revenge, and neither is hell!
Hell is what you ask for, just as the Gift of Salvation!
It is ultimately the receivers choice!
Do I want door (A), or door (B)???
Easy as that!
There is NO door (C)... get over it!
Yes and Amen

Freedom of speech declares, that they can say whatever ignorance pops in their heads...
What would be cool is...
An "Ignore", or "Block" button, so we could choose not to read them!

Gays "practice lawlessness" why can't they just pay a fine of 5 dollars just like the religious men who rape virgins?
Theocracy demands death for the children of those you claim are lawless as revenge for violating your beliefs.
This is why we need a secular government without right wing religious extremism in office you grovel for.
I actually think that, that term for rape, would be more classified as
Having premarital sex!
But with todays values... who cares if you get a used equipment???
Virginity is a precious Gift to a spouse!
I hope your husband doesn't have to wonder about
all the other guys who'd been there first!
Yes and Amen

Hi LOL,
Good day to you. The religies want females to kneel and be subservient to them or be beaten in some manner.
I really don't think my religion feels that way!
Proverbs
31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far
above rubies.
31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that
he shall have no need of spoil.
31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her
life.
.
How do you get a virtuous woman?
I guess, you'd have to teach them, that they are NOT animals
like YOU guys want to do!
We also teach that Life is precious... unlike YOU guys!
So... I guess... YOU guys are full of lies!
What's those morals you keep touting???

Your wife doesn't have to wonder how many guys you have been with, since you confessed publicly. And you talk about women being used equipment. Ha Ha, yet I bet you considered that a precious gift to your spouse. Still throwing stones as if you have no sin.

I'm sure the bible writer did not want to rape one that was NOT a virtuous woman so in that manner he wrote that to let men know for 5 dollars you can rape a virgin in the old testament and marry her make her a slave to clean your house cook your food and beat her is she disobeyed.

The bible shows this is true. And you say you have the holy spirit to interpret the bible? As if no one else you refute you, really.

In 1800's in the state of Delaware the Christians could not get enough of Gods Proverbs 31:10 and started raping them a 7 years of age.

So please so more of your ignorance about the truth of Gods word.

formerly really replies:
Slander and libel are two different things.Slander specifiaclly refers to the spoken word; it's not possible to slander someone in writing.
Once again, you've clearly demonstrated that you have the barest grasp of a subject but are under the impression, somehow, that you instead have deep understanding.

There is a new set of laws regarding the net.
Look them up sometime.
ScienceRules replies:
Apparently your ignorance of the law exceeds your ignorance of science. For defamation of character to occur, whether through libel or slander, there needs to be a victim, an actual identified individual person or entity. Since you are anonymous here on topix, nothing said about your screen identity can rise to defamation of character because your screen persona isn't 'you'. A good analogy would be slandering a fictional character on a TV show; the real actor would have no claim to defamation of character. Now, if you chose to reveal your actual identify here on topix, then defamation of character could be an issue.
Do you bother to research ANYTHING before you post?

When it's harrassing, abusing and bullying others...charges CAN be filed. Because it's just WRONG.

(And I've been a part of, promoted, and have seen plenty of research being done on promoting the furthering STOPPING that type of thing.)

One complaint warrant is all it would take.

Are those teaching eternal torment blaspheming God? What about those who claim they have cast out demons by the power of Gods Holy Spirit, are they endanger of everlasting destruction by God?
The Hellfire doctrine is for sure a God dishonoring teaching but we are not judges as to what is blasphemy and what is not!
As far as casting out demons Jesus and his Apostles did but is unlikely any have the ability to do that today by means of God's holy spirit. Remember those who had the ability to cast out demons also could raise the dead.

Okay ya, I do have to differ with this one on you a small amount.
See , most of all of us do have values, however sometimes in life , we tend to shove them to the side, due to hurt or even mistrust or a lot of many other things that can take place in our lifes. We are none perfect , no matter how much we try to be . The past should lay in the past , correct? I can honestly say , waiting till marriage , was something no one can take away from you , and I never regretted it , but just because one person has the strength to do so , does not mean , all will or can. Lust overwhelms at times and our values get pushed back in the bottom , however still there , just tarnished. Ever been there my dear?
