They'll probably hold him until they get him stabilized again. Then he'll be back manic as ever. Wish they'd teach him grammar while they've got his attention.

I know this is going to sound like a bunch of bologna, but if there is no God, then how do you explain our existence and who we are and where we go when we die. How do you explain the paranormal if everything now is looked at from a scientific point of view? I have personally experienced paranormal activity and I do so on a regular basis! I live in an apartment out in the country, and the guy who lived there before me commited suicide in my livingroom after he got diagnosed with MS, he couldn't handle living as a vegetable when he was so active, and strong and put a gun to his head. I have seen shit,m heard shit all of that! I wouldn't say my house is haunted but he definetly pops in every now and then. Especially because his parents share the other side of the house. Its a duplex. Explain that to me if there is no God, no spirits none of that!

The simple answer is, if we donít know something, some of us are confident enough to not have to make something up to explain it.

I donít have to pretend in Santa Claus to be an answer for things I do not know.

I have had experiences that are beyond what current science can explain myself, but that does not mean I have to buy someoneís made up explanations either.

Man has believed in literally billions of Gods, but I think it is time we grew up. Yes there are things we donít know, but we donít need to believe in Peter Pan because we donít know something.

Wrong

USA law is based on English law which was based on Roman law which was largely borrowed from Greek law which origin outdates any current religion today.

I'd like to vote for Jesus "Tap-Dancing" Christ. He's always a crowd-pleaser. The way He busts out those old soft-shoe renditions, mannnn..... When He starts to lay down the old "Bethlehem Hustle", the crowd always goes wild.

Not at all true, there are thousands of churches here in the US who wish to preform same sex marriages and their religious rights and freedoms are being denied.
That answer doesn't address what was written. See above. Simply because a church will perform a same sex marriage, doesn't negate what Brian wrote. Plus no church is denied the ability to do that. It simply won't be legally recognized.

Truth be known we'll never know until we die! Unfortunately for most of you, you will be proven wrong and have to spend eternity being reminded of it. But how about we all start getting ready for the war that's about to happen! How much is your self righteous gay pride going to mean to you, when you are being overrun and slaughtered by slant eyed zipper heads?!

Best thing about that is the government is taking all the guns so we can't protect ourselves!
