RAMADAN stands for renewing trust in Allah, setting aside a full month for fulfilling religious obligations, happy family reunions, fasting to feel empathy with the hungry and starving, cleansing one's digestive tract fasting and eating remedial foods, strengthening one's ethical basis and activating one's charity button among other notables. Obviously, none of this is lofty nondualism or sublime yoga leading to self-realization but for the common Muslim it's a great corrective in terms of upping one's thoughts, emotions, words and deeds.

Notice Frijoles runs from the truth, I'am really tired of these fake Jews. The Turah condemns his actions of homosexuality. Watch how this demon tries to squirm his way out of addressing the Turah verse I posted showing his wicked behavior as you can already see he has left the forum to avoid my post exposing him for what he truly is, lets watch this demon when he returns and all will see him for what he truly is an abomination.
Didn't that Jewish rabbi in the first century CE tell you that the second most important commandment was to Love Your Neighbor as Yourself? Therefore, more important that anything in Lev. 20. Didn't he also say "Do not judge, or you too will be judged"?

That having been said, why do you believe that Frijoles commits actions of homosexuality? The only thing Frijoles has said is that he will not judge those who are homosexuals, and he has stated affirmatively that he is a heterosexual. Do you understand that that Jewish rabbi also said that people you give false testimony will not have eternal life:

6 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked,“Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied.“There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

18 “Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied,“‘... you shall not give false testimony,... and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”

So, SamBee, are you going to your concept of hell because you have given false testimony against Frijoles? Maybe you should clean up your own act before you start judging Frijoles.

ERIC is another poster who is homosexual - he claims to be married and says he has a son. Evidently, he's bisexual - more gay than straight.

- Helpful Measures in Dealing with Kundalini Emergencies -





By George A. Boyd © 2004

I will begin this article by quoting from researchers and meditation practitioners who have studied the phenomena of kundalini emergency. I will give some definitions and identify the variety of symptoms that arise during a kundalini emergency.

I will then suggest some ways to deal with this energy when it is aroused and bring it back to its normal state of groundedness.

Google.

Jefferson did NOT write a law. Jefferson wrote a BILL. The BILL was never adopted.

You have to stop believing everything you read of the web and start doing some cite checking before you post something.
Son, when you read you should apply understanding. Now understand this, I was NOT quoting my own words meaning I did NOT speak of Jefferson writing a LAW the writer of my quote did.

Observation, the intention of the writer is obvious to everyone with average intelligence and above so why your great challenge?

Now get the understanding of the writer--- Jefferson wrote some words or a BILL that was passed into LAW. GET it, dear Albert E.

Address what comes below.

My quote, "Jefferson in 1779 " wrote a LAW in VIRGINIA which contained a PUNISHMENT of CASTRATION for men who engage in SODOMY"

Tell me why members of your community did NOT protest such a LAW given that the LAW was unconstitutional? Why the inactivity of your community?

This lack of protest, is it because they got a SEXUAL high from being CASTRATED?

The answer Hugh is that you are wrong. The bill never passed. I gave you a citation to a scholarly paper on the subject.

You have offered nothing, whether scholarly or not, in support of your premise that the bill passed.

You can't object to the constitutionality of something never enacted.

Further, you can't object to the constitutionality of something before the Constitution existed.

Understand, Jefferson understood the Constitution better than ALL of your modern lawyers and Judges and hence his BILL to CASTRATE homosexuals.

Also since some foolishly claim that the American Constitution supported homosexuality explain the ignorance of the following lawmakers. In explaining tell me the year when the Constitution was effective. Hint:1789. Tell me why in 7 years after the constitution was effective CONTEMPORARIES of it had an INCORRECT understanding of it and so passed the following LAW..----

"On March 18, 1796, New Jersey passed "An Act for the Punishment of Crimes" that made anyone convicted of sodomy liable to "a fine and solitary confinement at hard labor for any term not exceeding twenty-one years."" 287

Perhaps those lawmakers were too close to the constitution or were CONTEMPORARIES of the adoption and making of the Constitution to understand it. In fact TRUE understanding would come 200 years later by judges who were NEVER born at the time.

Ah, no Hugh. You have to first show that Jefferson's bill was enacted and then we'll address your other issues. And, there still was no Constitution at the time Jefferson proposed the bill. So how could Jefferson understand a document that didn't exist.

The terrorist, racist and illegal state of ISRAEL does not grant public holidays on Christian or Muslim festivals but Jews claim all rights in secular democracies. Yet, Christian nations rush to its aid at the drop of a hate. Shame.

Meanwhile, FRANCE is set to open its doors to tens of thousands of displaced Christians from North Iraq who were forced to flee their homes after the ISIS Islamic militants gave them an ultimatum to either convert to Islam, pay the Jizziya tax or face execution.

RACISM AND RELIGIOUS FANATICISM OF DEMON WORSHIPPERS

ISRAEL and the ISLAMIC NATIONS treat Christians shabbily and do not permit Christian immigrants into their lands and the Christians who live in these nations are treated shabbily or made to feel like second class citizens and the governments do not even recognize Christian holidays. Christian nations usually open their doors wide to Jews or Muslims seeking citizenship or asylum and the Jews and Muslims emigres in Christian lands soon begin to assert their presence and demand that the law accommodates their religious and cultural rights and openly seek to twist foreign policy favoring either Israel or the Islamic bloc of nations.

It appears to be the same as in the US, UK, etc. While others are free to observe their religious holidays, only the religious holidays of the majority are officially recognized. None grant public holidays on Jewish festivals except Israel. Does India grant public holidays on Jewish festivals? Does that make India less of a democracy?

India grants public holidays to every religious minority that has a sizable presence.

There are only 3000 odd Jews in India and so there's no official holiday set aside for the Jews.

Only in the West and India, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Muslims are free to aspire to the highest post of the land without discrimination. In many cases, the governments of these nations go out of their way to appoint persons of religious minorities to important official positions. This is some form of true secularism practiced only in the West and India. You can't expect such illumined practices in Israel or in the Islamic nations.
