Most people don't need to be told murder is wrong.
You are in denial. It is severe. I keep a few simple points of reality in your face to disrupt your denial.
Reality is not an opinion.
Love and truth are married. They will never divorce.
What are you, a poet? "Love and truth are married. They will never divorce."

How exactly is love and truth married? Explain that to us.

And you cannot deny my reality.

I grew up in the South. I had never traveled further west than Nashville, further north than Ohio, further east than South Carolina, or further south than Daytona. And like with most people, I was taught from a very young age that the color of the sky is “blue”. I didn’t question it. Why would I question the color of the sky?

Then in my mid-twenties, I traveled to Flagstaff. I had a good friend from college who lived there. And I have to tell you, the “blue” sky in Flagstaff is MUCH different than the “blue” sky of the South. Their sky is spectacularly blue.

And after I returned from my trip, I realized that here in the South our sky is more “milky” than the blue I observed in the high desert.

Another example… I recently went to a party where a friend brought some canned beets to serve. He kept carrying on about how good that were. Now, I have tried to like beets for years. But to me, they taste like dirt. He kept saying,“No… These are GOOD beets! You’ll love them!” He even plopped one down on my plate. To humor him, I ate the beet. And I’m sure it was obvious by the look on my face that I still didn’t like beets.

To him, those beets were wonderful. But to me, they still tasted like dirt.

I like jazz, but detest opera. I like the color red; not a huge fan of navy. I’m attracted to guys; never been attracted to a girl in my life.

My point is that a person’s truth is a matter of perspective. It’s a matter of what they observe and experience. It’s a matter of personal preferences.

It takes a lot of hubris to tell someone what their “truth” or “reality” should be.

When you dumb down marriage to 'two people in a relationship', everything becomes disputable.
But you know that. The denial is only until you get what you want. As you said before, the other stuff isn't your concern.
Not even worth my time...

9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
So based on your personal history, you just condemned yourself, Gregory.

I think your problem might be that of posting too quickly and too often.
There are glitches with TOPIX. I've learned over the years that if you begin typing a comment, if you take too much time (like if you start, then stop and come back later) your comment will not be posted.
And if you post one thing after another, after another, the system for some reason can't or doesn't process it. Your post doesn't show up.
I've had to post the same thing several times to get it to show up.
Just a suggestion...
LOL. In other words, keep in mind that Topix is not a real-time chat room. That's how Frankie uses it.
