<quoted text>Here is the post you were responding to typing about Christian vs atheist debate: "How is joining an anti-gay hate group supposed to show the Christian love and tolerance for gay people? Do you want to draw the gay community closer or further away from God?"
Were you confused as to what post you were responding to?
First of all, you do not understand ( saveCalifornia.com ). I have talked to the President of this organization personally and he is a very kind and loving man who loves Christ. He has been on CNN, Fox News and many local news in the past few months. You are judging something that you must not have taken the time to research what they are all about. I agree and financially support this group 100%. Just look up on your search "NOT BORN THAT WAY" and see how many homsexuals are being helped by this organization. We are here to help those that are sinning, not turning them away. If they do not listen to the Word of God, that is not our problem. I said in one of my post last evening, when my husband and I had our fellowship, we had discussed about gays showing up and we both agreed that it would be fine, but that was only to help them out of their sin like any other sin. Removing parts of the Bible we do not like and then feel that we are free is total deception. Satan's job in the world of our's is only to deceive people, for he does not work so much on the non-believer,he works on the believer to justify what they are doing so they will feel OK about themselves. For those who are for equality, it is not fair to let a sin go by and others that have other sins have to be forgiven. My husband and I will say this once to you and that is if you feel like homosexuals are excused from their sins and they can just go ahead and live that type of lifestyle and God will forgive them, then that will be the end of our conversation. We are only here to help people get out of their sins and set free, for if you have even one sin that you are doing, you are guilty of all because you are still living in that sin. Shall we sin that Grace may abound? God forbid!! My husband & I do not practice any type of sin as sin is defined in Scripture, for we do not please God at times, but we do not practice Sin. We live very strict lives and are happy because Christ is in us and with us in all that we do. Whenever there is issues in our home, we pray and take it to Christ and after 55 years of marriage, I have to say that It does work for my husband & I, for we have very different personalities & both know Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives and so we are ONE in Christ.

We should use Romans Chapter 1, for it condemns homosexuality 100%. If you do not believe in Apostle Paul's Epistles like some other people on this forum don't, then God help you for in Galatians Chapter 1 verses 11-12 and I quote: "But I certify you brethern, that the Gospel which was preached of me is not after man, neither was I taught it, but by the Revelation of Jesus Christ." So, Paul received these Epistles from Christ and whatever he says, it is GOSPEL TRUTH. AMEN & AMEN

I don't think they are excused from their sins anymore then any straight person is excused from their sins. Or your sins. Since you love experiences, I have had a few with the guy on the corner holding the sign that if we don't repent we will go to hell or the sidewalk street preacher doing the same. I notice that people walk around them, I notice they not one person stops and gets on their knees and surrenders to Christ. It turns people off. And the conclusion is that so do you.

Your rational fears about being gay is why the APA has help centers for homosexuals and have no need to have them even for bisexuals. Get the clue, the APA offers professional help for gays.
Wow. Rant much? Hon, I have no fears about being gay. What a stupid comment. You're beginning to sound as stupid as Brian_G the village idiot. There is nothing factual in your last statement whatsoever. Do you like making a dumbass out of yourself? Sure seems that way.

First of all, you do not understand ( saveCalifornia.com ).
An anti-gay rights group has purchased hourly radio spots to urge parents to keep their children home from school on Harvey Milk Day, which honors the gay rights pioneer. Randy Thomasson, president of the SaveCalifornia.com , said the group bought more than 100 time slots for a radio ad in Los Angeles and Sacramento. It urges parents to "protect your children from Harvey Milk indoctrination," by keeping them home from school on Wednesday. "This is harmful to children," In 2011 Save California head Randy Thomasson claimed that Harvey Milk Day would "unleash a tsunami of perversity" that would include "mock gay weddings" at public schools. In 2010 Thomasson claimed that Harvey Milk Day would include "cross-dressing contests" and that Milk endorsed pedophilia.

I think what is harmful is not letting our children know about different people. I think what is harmful is putting false fear into our schools. My son had a gay teacher, okay guess what subject..English...LOL...but he was a great teacher and even brought his partner into class one time, I don't think the students decided to be gay after that experience. Most kids know of all the 'normal' gays out there: entertainers, CEOs, neighbors, politicians, religious leaders, etc. Why would anyone send money to them to buy radio time to air its bigotry? Seems like your money to them is not turning anyone towards Christ, I would say it's more like turning them further away. What a shame!

Paul is focused on proving that idolatry is wrong and the people should worship God. The people Paul is talking about in Romans 1 had knowledge of God but rejected God in spite of their knowledge of Him. The link between v. 26 and v. 27 is "likewise also the men." The men were doing something like the women were doing. Whatever they were doing is linked to rejecting the true God and engaging in idolatry.

The most common sense understanding of Romans 1 is that Paul is describing shrine prostitution, cult prostitution, people who use sex to worship the fertility goddesses of ancient Rome.

I think what is a sin is those that have a statue of the virgin Mary around their necks and hanging on their car mirrors. That's what Paul was talking about. Do you go on Catholic threads and tell them they will go to hell for that?

I'm not aware that any of the amendments and statutes are referred to legislatively as a DOMA. I'll concede the point to you since you seem to think you're an expert and quite frankly I don't care. They won't be around long enough for me to worry about them.

This memo is to announce the development of a new software system which will be Year 2000 compliant. known as:

“Millennia Year Application Software System”(MYASS).

Next Monday there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS to everyone. We will hold demonstrations throughout the month so that all employees will have an opportunity to get a
good look at MYASS. We have not addressed networking aspects yet, so currently only one person at a time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed after MYASS expands.

Some employees have begun using the program already. This morning I walked into a subordinate’s office and was not surprised to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS. Some of the less technical people may be somewhat afraid of MYASS. Last week my secretary said to me,“I’m a little nervous, I never put anything in MYASS before.” I helped her through the first time and afterward she admitted that it was relatively painless and she was actually looking forward to doing it again, and was even ready to kiss MYASS. There have been concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS upon initial installation, but the virus has been eliminated and we were able to save MYASS. In the future, however, protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.

This database will encompass all information associated with the business. As you begin using the program, feel free to put anything you want in MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a time when it will be commonplace for a supervisor to hand work to an employee and say,“here, stick this in MYASS.”

A woman is helping her computer illiterate husband set up his computer. She instructs him to choose and enter a password he wants to use, when logging on.

The husband, in a rather amorous mood, figures he will try for a shock effect to bring his mood to his wife’s attention. So when the computer asks him to enter his password, he makes it plainly obvious to his wife that he is keying in the word,“PENIS”.

His wife nearly falls off the he chair from laughing so hard, when the computer replies:

**PASSWORD REJECTED. NOT LONG ENOUGH.***

I am very disturbed by your comments. We are not worried at all that 99% of the people on this forum are not interested in what we have to say, we do know that most of the world hate God and His Word, but there are a few out there that may need help and if just one person needs guidance, it will be worth it all. If you are a Christian, why don't you try and help those out there that are lost and not write us back, for we are getting nowhere fast. I am not judging you that you will not be saved in the end, for God is the final Judge, but I have lots of Christian friends and we are one in Christ. Most of your questions that you are asking us, you should know already unless you are trying to argue. I did not think we were having a debate, for Christians really should not be debating (of which my Christians friends do not dabate for we are on the same page), unless one feels that the other is going to a organization that is not Christian and we have been there and debated with other cults. If people on this forum do not ahere to Scriptures, they are not hurting me, for they are hurting our Creator, so they really are turned off with God. Remember the Apostles when they went door to door, they were to dust their feet off and move on if the people did not accept Christ. You do not know us at all and you have no idea how God has worked in our lives to help others and God Gets The Glory. I do not feel as though we can discuss things because they will turn into arguements because for some reason, we are not on the same page. I do not know what it is, but my husband said last evening, he felt as though most of you want to argue and not listen to God's Word. I am in contact with alot of Christians and really do not feel like they are arguing with us, but with you, we still do not know where you stand with Christ. For if you remove any Scripture and deviate from any Scripture, then we know for sure that we are not one in Christ.

A truck driver, hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers, stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar, he sees a big sign on the door that says,“COMPUTER NERDS NOT ALLOWED – ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!” He enters and sits down.

The bartender comes over to him, sniffs, and says that he smells kind of nerdy. He then asks him what he does for a living. The truck driver explains to him that he drives a truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is hauling. The bartender serves him a beer and says,“OK, truck drivers aren’t nerds.”

As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in wearing a pair of glasses with tape around the middle, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a belt that is at least a foot too long. The bartender, without saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away. The truck driver asks him why he did that.

The bartender replied,“Don’t worry. The computer nerds are in season because they are overpopulating Silicon Valley. You don’t even need a license.”

So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads for the freeway. Suddenly, he veers to avoid an accident, and the load shifts. The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over the road. He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, snatching up all of the computers. The scavengers are comprised of engineers, accountants and programmers – computer geeks. Each of them wearing the nerdiest clothes he has ever seen.

He can’t let them steal his whole load. So remembering what happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting away, killing several of them instantly. A highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car screaming at him to stop.

The truck driver said,“What’s wrong? I thought computer nerds were in season.”

“Well, sure,” says the patrolman,“But you can’t bait ‘em!”
