Of course Paul founded a Christian church, I know that, you need to tell your fellow followers that.
Julius ruled ( in a sense ) over an expanding republic before its heyday, that continued to expand as an empire under Augustus after his death, the fall didnít start for a long time later.
The reasons were numerous, and debatable, but saying that Rome fell because of the acceptance of homosexuality is hilarious, he is saying that a Christian empire accepted homosexuality.
No one of any education will buy that, you only learn that kind of propaganda in Sunday school.
Rome still exists. But the empire fell for many different reasons and I never learned in Sunday school that gays caused it.

That is why I keep telling people they are standing on the wrong side of history.

50 or 100 years form today, everyone will be looking back at people and organizations that opposed the right thing to do, and not in a positive light.

Religion has been going slowly downhill since it became so political in the last 30 years, but this.... they will be looked on in the same light that we look back at slaveholders a hundred years ago.

Wow, so it fell right after becoming a Christian nation

LOL

well there are different theories as to when the official fall was, but 85 years before the fall, yeah that could make the case as the cause if that is what you wanted to do.

More than accepting of homosexuals by this christian empire anyway

isnt KI a crusty old man??
they all are...
Kimare is a genetic chimera who has a vagina, in addition to male genitalia, and an alleged inner lesbian trapped within his body. I'm the alleged inner lesbian and my sole purpose on Topix is to bust his balls. I know, you're thinking "how do I get an easy gig like that?"

If it's such a pain in the arse, why do heterosexual couples also do it?
It was a joke VV....lighten up. Opposite sex couples do it because I would assume they like it. Personally, it has no appeal.
And I'm not talking about homosexual and heterosexual intercourse being the same biologically. I'm talking about it being equal from a purely legal standpoint. In the eyes of the law, there is no difference. Neither are illegal. Both are legal. How much more equal can you get?
Simply because both are legal, that doesn't necessarily mean both are viewed the same way legally. One fulfills the meaning of consummation of the marital relationship of husband and wife the other does not. So I still say there is a legal distinction.

I never hear of anyone that spits hate at those that were against the civil rights of Blacks. People are smart enough to realize that times change, most slave owners were not the evil beaters that hollywood makes them out to be. Most people realize religion never saved anyone, it's your relationship with God.

Ron is much deeper then you think. He loves his homosexual friends and even the blacks. How does what Ron say imply he is in a certain political party that you hate? You are just like he is.

right!!! in 1860,

the slave owners were like "yeah well give up those slaves"

the south tried to secede because they wanted to remain a slave using republic.

we fought a HUGE CIVIL war over slavery....

I am not the one spitting hate, I am warning you about how history, and of how your organizations will be looked upon in the future because of your obvious hatred and un-American values.

If I hated you, I wouldnít be warning you, I would just let you go down the toilet as you seem to insist on doing.

You are standing on the wrong side of history, and what you are doing and saying are going down in history books for future generations.
