the gay and lesbian movement hasn't influenced the political process? what sort of denial are you in?
I don't even want to ask how "Christians have killed gays thru hate speech"
I like you sparkles ,and im am glad you had a productive night. even if I worry over what it does to you.(like my sins do me )

it has a lot of things you forgot, and perhaps never understood. that statement doesn't make you ignorant, nor does your statement make me. its a failure to communicate. that's all.

There is nothing wrong with being a tobacco farmer it is an honest hard working job,i grew up on a tobacco and dairy farm and helped milk cows and strip tobacco. I love the state of Kentucky and I am a proud Kentucky woman. on a personal level I don't care what your profession is but you say you have a trans child, how old are they and how do you know they are trans and how is your lifestyle helping them come to terms with who and what they are. I mean no offense just curious.

<quoted text>
While some people may be bothered by the fact that there are pastors who live in multimillion dollar homes, this is old news to most. But here is what should bother you about these expensive homes: You are helping to pay for them! You pay for them indirectly, the same way local, state, and federal governments in the United States subsidize religion to the tune of about $71 billion every year.
States bypass an estimated $26.2 billion per year by not requiring religious institutions to pay property taxes.

Capital gains tax exemptions for religious institutions may be as much as $41 million a year.

U.S. clergy may claim as much as $1.2 billion in tax exemptions annually via the parsonage allowance.
The great Billy Graham has a beautiful cabin in the hills of North Carolina. I don't know what 'pastors' you are referring to, but locally I don't know of any multi-million dollar homes. All you are doing is continually criticizing. You need to focus on yourself and deal with it.

My daddy grew up very poor. He managed to buy 30 acres of land. On it he did grow tobacco. The choice was pretty much the way it was to survive. He has gone to be with the Lord. I can assure you if his right pretty girl then had decided to flaunt and disgrace her body as you, it would have killed him. Growing tobacco is the least of the issue with you. I can't imagine not knowing this.

Actually I grew up in that environment and still find great joy in listening to Gaither music. When you love Jesus, you want to hear music that glorifies Him. I like EZ listening also - not for you to think that is the ONLY kind. Since you do not know Jesus, you are hardly one to say He is imaginary. Tomorrow is church - love being there among my church family. I am sorry that Satan has taken over your life. The only thing that can happen is that the Holy Spirit will speak to your heart. I will pray for that to happen. God is powerful!

That shows total lack of knowledge on your part of what becoming a Christian is. You are trying to discuss 'the Christian' life when you do not know what it means. I have said all I know to say.

<quoted text>Your right and there is nothing wrong with being a cocaine dealer either...Regarding my child... she grew up with her father in Indiana... she only lived with me a short while after her birth. I was incarcerated for over a year and a half and she was sent to be raised by him.. she turned out just fine and my life has had no impact on her
You seem awfully negative and jaded there isn't anything wrong with hard work and I would hardly compare being a drug dealer to a farmer. You never did answer my question how old is your kid and how do you know they are transgendered. Im assuming the kid doesn't live with you as you said your life doesn't affect them well it does as your the mom and all kids want a mom. Anyway perhaps when you get over your bitchy spell you will want to converse in a normal human manner.

Girl, I suppose, you are in such a serious mindset. That being the case, you will not listen. When you get into the arena of being blasphemous toward our Lord and Savior, you do allow Satan to control your life. I would be EXTREMELY concerned. Crossing the line - BIG TIME.

Check out people in Hollywood - miserable lives there. Your $150 could would not even touch the surface, but what has happened to so many? Tragedy. You are putting your faith in false hope. Be still - think about yourself honestly. The time before you go to sleep I hope your thoughts will turn to what's going on in your life. Tomorrow: 10:30 - Southeast Christian on Channel 3, Locally Severns Valley on local cable at both 9:00 and again at 10:45, I think. Charles Stanley is another possibility. There are older Billy Graham Crusades still on TV, I think. YOU have not been exposed to the possibility of REAL joy in your life. We can only hope that you will recognize that -- very soon.

me personally, I think all kids that think they are gay should be more involved with adults of character. especially young boys with no male role model that lives in a single mother home with a strong willed woman.(that could turn any young boy against females ,and I would not blame him.

trust me on this. the political process is taking away from the pulpit, not the reverse. there isn't a big "bible lobby" in politics. your anger is unfounded.

Look I was born a Hermaphroditic female in the state of Kentucky in the late 1960's. after 14 years of being heavily physically abused (including a fractured skull when I was 5 a broken left wrist at age 10 and a separated shoulder when I was 12 by my parents because that was there way of dealing with all the little farming communitees christian conservative love who so loving referred to me as the "It" or the "freak of Nature" , I finally ranaway ... ya at age 14.
I had a better life in porn, stripping and prostitution then I ever did with my christain home...
thank you ,we are finally getting to the meat and potatoes of this argument.(im sorry, I know this is uncomfortable for you)
if you were born a genuine hermaphrodite, and this story is true.........shame on the adults around you !!!!!!! you were a genuine transgendered human being. there is a unique difference.
a lot of children are being diagnosed with autism today ,most simply have discipline problems. I believe true autism exist, but over diagnosis takes away from the real true cases. do you understand where I am going?
I think when young people try to stake a claim of being "transgendered" simply based on an act of rebellion it takes the true direction away from people like you that physically were born that way.
