<quoted text> just like she has no idea what I do outside this forum. That statement goes for both sides . You all dish out, but can't take it back very well
I'm taking what you're giving, but as for taking anything I've said about you back, in the immortal words of Dana Carvey playing George Herbert Walker Bush - "Not Gonna Doit....."

You're getting particularly nasty here tonight though... I wonder why your cult engenders so much emotion in you when challenged. And I wonder how you manage to handle the cognitive dissonance. But I do know that sand can work wonders in that regard... So I'm not particularly surprised.

If you can do anything you like, that's great for you. Not everyone has that option. Some are still fighting for that right. Mormons who say they are christians, must be christians or at least see themselves that way. What's the big deal if they are, or aren't? That really is something I couldn't care less about, and seems like a minor detail. The muslim question has been presented to you several times {because there are other topics on this thread} and you refuse to address it. So if you don't want to keep hearing it, you could answer, or take the fifth. But I will agree to not criticize your spelling if you do the same for me.

lol.. I wouldn't ask you to take back anything you have said, I would expect you to stand behind your convictions just as I stand behind mine. The statement meant you can't take the tongue lashing from others , you only dish out.
I.am a bit nasty tonight, but just like the rest of you, I'm only human.

I don't recall criticizing your spelling. However to answer your question, yes I would vote for a Muslim if I thought he could do the job well. Elections aren't about religion.

Well, if you mean that I'm not going to respond well to the kinds of juvenile bully playground insults that Crazy flings at me, count me as a non-taker. And if you agree with No Prize that what I advocate for children in terms of letting them be who they are amounts to contributing to their suicide, I'm not going to take that well either. As far as what I'm doing with you is that I'm noting the stark inconsistencies and inability to make a decision and the extreme tightrope acrobatics you're engaged in to make your cult jibe with what you think and know to be morally correct.

I pay tithing, because it's a biblical commandment.

Maybe you should try paying attention to what I type, as opposed to grouping me.

According to Joseph's Myth, he (ol' Horndog Joe) sits at the judgment bar with your cult's Jesus to judge you all.

Your Morg (meaning your morg's founder) Joey would then be in a position indeed to cast you into the outer darkness.

You first typed that I can dish it out better than I can take it back. When I said I am not taking anything back, you said I can't take tongue lashings. Hello...

You aren't making much sense, Sister...

In other words, she does it because she's told to....

She therefore allows them to have the power over her that regardless of her own thoughts in the matter, she does not wish to lose her sacred admission ticket to the International House of Handshakes. Because it's more important for her to do the passwords and the handshakes and to wear the underwear than it is that they torture and drive people to suicide. In other words... That's what really matters.

what part of biblical commandment did you miss ?
Most all religions follow the same commandment.

I said you can dish it out, but not take it back. As in can't take the same thing in return. Seems pretty clear.

It always boggles my mind that people who claim to be able to whatever they like, think the world works that way for everyone. It also shows a very limited imagination.
