i never thought of you as one to hold back . or keep from "shredding arguments" thank you for your grace and not exposing my ignorance....
will you answer my question?
is it a good idea for government to control private organizations to promote a certain agenda?
after all, wasn't that the original topic on this thread? it was.
i have been absolutely gracious to you, and provided lots of comments for you to poke fun at, and even enjoy at my expense.
that's coming to a close, not because i am mean, just because i am proving a point.
you wont answer my question because you cant, you don't know how to answer, it confuses you. its far from a "word trap" ,some things just are the way they are.
will you answer now?

But yet you aren't even concerned enough to spell the name right and then you're just going to claim it to be "yur" satan when they aren't related at all....

No actually you were told to NOT JUDGE. the remainder is the claim that your GOD will Judge you by the same measure you judged others. Can't even get that small little amount of your "scripture" correct can you?

<quoted text>i fear there a lot of things you don't understand.
how about that question? how is it constitutionally possible for the government to control what private organizations say or do?
you are simply promoting a long winded emotional version of socialism. how could the state control the church? or why should the state control free speech or any involvement in this matter?
although you may agree with this right now because you have an agenda....what could this mean in the future?(for you personally)
its not a silly question
What you fear is not of my concern. You rebound to the same question every time your propaganda is questioned? Why is that? Cowardice? An amateur hour trolling attempt to distract from that which you do not want to answer? You don't know a thing about "socialism" but it's notable that you fall back to right wing lying points.

Interesting, I just think it's a sloppy ass drunk. You Do know that repenting and then doing it again isn't any real form of repentance.

YOU epitomize the word rationalization. YOU are going in circles. The PROOF is clearly written in the Bible with all prophecy culminating with the birth of Christ. YOU choose not to believe it; faith is involved. Obviously, you are not going to become a Christian. That has been determined. When you put your disbelief right out front, Christian or not, one can say YOU are rejecting Christ. Now, how difficult is that to judge.

I don't understand why it has to be a big deal there are many religions who's to say which one is right or best its all a matter of personal preference. Are you saying Buddhism, Torah, Wicca are worse than Christian?. The meat of the subject is belief, belief that a higher power has some sort of divine plan for you. There are many versions of the bible as well which one is right, depending on who you ask and what day. I don't have to believe in the same things as you to not know and have a relationship with God.

Versions? You mean translation choices. I use New International Version (NIV). Same message - just written in modern English. ABSOLUTELY no comparison with Christ being a part of our faith to these others. Yes, it IS a big deal. Higher Power? HE is God -who gave his only begotten Son so that we may live eternally in heaven - period. However, we must put our faith in Christ and accept Him as our Savior. You are not focused on what you should be because you do not know the difference. If you are believing the wrong thing, you are missing the goal: a relationship with Christ, our Savior. There is NO room for Budda or anything else outside of Christ. You need to get to church where you can learn what is involved.

The translations are different so are you saying the jewish faith, the buddists, etc are going to hell because they don't believe in your preconceived notion of God im sorry for your tunnel vison and your inability to have more faith in the love of God than you do in a man made book.i know whats involved and no longer choose to be a part of the hypocrisy that is the Christian religion. And no I meant versions.

Nothing close to any Proof in there. No, I'm simply not gullible like yourself, if Criss Angel had been around back then you'd all be worshiping him.
I asked for Proof, not your circular reasoning lies, if you can't provide it say so.

you want the government to force everyone to accept you, rather than just doing it on a one on one personal level in your individual life, and im a coward? smh
im not trying to get you to "give in" I am trying to grt you to have a normal exchange, but once again all you do is throw out insults.
I give up, enjoy your socialist mentality, because you certainly cant debate it. enjoy your ignorance.

You haven't got a clue as to what "socialist" means and you stay so damn drunk that you can't hold a coherent thought from one post to the next. Yes, you're a coward. You'd rather sit back and run your drunk-ass mouth. No one's asked anyone about "acceptance", that can neither be legislated nor ordered given and only a goober would think that anyone's attempting to legislate it.

You are such a bitter person. Reading obits today, I read one in which the the wife wrote that her husband went to heaven to be with Jesus. It is a sad, sad funeral to attend when we know that one did not choose Christ and is NOT a Christian: No hope to be in the presence of Jesus for ETERNITY when one has not chosen to accept Him as their Savior. I find joy in knowing Jesus; I certainly would not choose the alternative. As mentioned, believe as you may, but many of us know the difference in having Christ in our lives. ONE more time- being a good person has NOTHING to do with spending eternity in heaven. Unfortunately, some assume that.

<quoted text>Actually, it's a Mythology, no more, no less. The only reason it still exists is that it's a way to control people who believe the Mythology and to justify the slaughter of those who do NOT kowtow to the "beliefs".
The reason it "bothers a Pagan" is because such BS promotes hate and the promotion of such hatred encourages suicide among Gay/Lesbian youth.
I do NOT believe States should have a right to Vote on Marriage, Our system of Government was designed specifically to AVOID the rights of the Minority being Trampled by the Tyranny of the majority, basic Civics lesson for those who have forgotten.
Yes, they may have a "right" to a personal opinion, just as those who oppose such Bigotry as they espouse have a RIGHT to stand up against such opinions.
but does the minority have the right to control the majority, constitutionally speaking?
have you calmed down enough to have this conversation?
