You write from ignorance not authority. You wish for people to believe lies because you believe there is strength in numbers.

GOD TELLS PEOPLE TO LIE:
"...and thou (Moses) shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and you shall say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the Lord our God" (Ex. 3:18) and "afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness." God is telling Moses to lie because the real reason is to escape.

"Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the Lord said, Take a heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the Lord" (1 Sam. 16:2). The Lord told Samuel to lie also, since he is actually going out to meet a son of Jesse to anoint him king. Yet, we are told in Prov. 12:22 that, "Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord."

"logical, reasonable, and/or practical distinctions" is completely 100% subjective. Do you know what subjective means? That means that is your opinion and that is all it is. Based on your demonstration that you are in love with every word you type I have to tell you that you are illogical, and unreasonable and you haven't a clue what is practical.

Practical would be you minding your own business and not try to stop other people from exercising their rights, the rights that they were born with, rights the government is supposed to protect.

You are clearly one of the most illogical and unreasonable beings I have ever read in here. Your interference in other people's activities is pathetic bordering on criminal. Clearly you do not have a clue how a decent honest human being lives and how he treats his fellow man.

I sure can blame the Bible and you pew warmers for the homophobia in the world. There is no other source. No one is born hating homosexuals it is all learned behaviour and one gets it from being around pew warming Christians like yourself. There is no negative part of the emotional brain for it to exist. It exists in the negative parts of the intellectual brain. Someone told you faggot this and faggot that and you believed them just like someone told you Santa and the Tooth fairy or Jesus and God, and you believed it. You are such a low functioning human being that you believe everything you are told as long as the source is someone you have not learned to mistrust. You do not trust homosexuals so you will not believe anything a gay person says to you, but you continue to believe what that con-artist at the front of your church tells you. That is why St. Paul calls you his "simple minded."
Homosexuality is a perfectly normal recreational activity between peaceful consenting adults and the Bible is wrong, it is irrelevant. If you didn't carry around so much Christian baggage you would see this.
No vitriol for the floor warming Islamic homophobes I notice, only Christians.

If there was any proof for the existence of your imaginary invisible friend you could not post it fast enough, instead you post insults. Insults are not proof of God, they are only proof that you are not a very nice person.
All you have is that someone told you, that is called hearsay. And any reasonable person can see why it is not allowed in a court of law. You really need to grasp this, come to terms with it, isn't the truth more important than your deeply held beliefs?
Honestly I am tired of your little dog and pony show.

I have to ask why you would thank me for saying nicely said to a post from someone other than yourself and trying to make it appear I was saying it to you. We all already know you are a Christian, you do not have to prove it further with more dishonest, deceitful and deceptive Christian pranks.

I do not know how you pew warmers live with yourselves what from all this abominable behaviour you are all so fond of.

Big D's constant harping on religion is what brings these religious whacko fruitloops like Rev Alan out of the woodwork and gets them all wound up and silly.

Thanks Big D! Ah good times.

Where is your proof that this God you allege actually exists?

The reason you have no evidence or facts and only hearsay is because no facts, no proof and no evidence exists because God does not exist. Your mamma told you Jesus this and God that, just like she told you Santa this and Tooth Fairy that. At some point you learned what you needed to know about Santa and the Tooth Fairy and we are all waiting for you to learn about Jesus and God.

I am agnostic. Haven't sat on a pew in over 50 years. But that's irrelevant. Why are you against marriage equality?

EVIL COMES FROM THE LORD:
"it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him" (1 Sam. 16:23).
"it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul...." (1 Sam. 18:10).
"the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul...." (1 Sam. 19:9).
"Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubles thee" (1 Sam. 16:15).
"the spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubles him" (1 Sam. 16:14).
"...evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem" (Micah 1:12).
"Thus saith the Lord, Behold I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbor, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou did it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun" (2 Sam. 12:11-12).
"God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem...." (Judges 9:23).

You have no proof God doesn't exist. Yet you believe it. That's faith moron. Belief without proof. Me, my intellect prevents me from being so very damn sure either way.
