As far as hindus worshipping cows, I assumed when people lead cows around in starving countries, that they worship them. If you search cow worship, you get many sights saying people "including some hindus " worship cows.
Preaching is fine, however many Christians cross the line by trying to enact their beliefs into law.

I'm fine with some christian preaching that abortion is wrong. I'm completely against it when they try to outlaw abortion or verbally assualt women at abortion clinics

I'm fine with some christian preaching that same sex marriage is wrong. I'm completely against it when they try and deny the same rights heterosexual couples have to homosexual couples.

I'm fine with christian kids praying privately in a public school, however, I'm completely against a teacher/administrator led prayers of any religion at a public assembly.

its really quite simple

DON'T BELIEVE IN ABORTION, DON'T HAVE ONE.
DON'T BELIEVE IN SAME SEX MARRIAGE, DON'T MARRY SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX

AGAIN, why am I NOT shocked that you managed to miss the entire point?
As far as hindus worshipping cows, I assumed when people lead cows around in starving countries, that they worship them.[QUOTE]

You ASSume a LOT that you're wrong about - but sadly you're not willing to learn otherwise. It seem's you'd rather alienate people and perpetuate outright LIES.

One last try: There are sites that say people WORSHIP Mary. The FACT is that Christians and Catholics do NOT worship Mary, but they DO venerate her. She is a symbol of something sacred, but she is not "WORSHIPED".

THose that would post that they "worship" her would be WRONG. DOesn't matter how many post bullshit, its STILL bullshit.

[QUOTE] If you search cow worship, you get many sights saying people "including some hindus " worship cows.
Sorry Gtown, as I've proven - you dont find ANY sites of those of the Hindu faith saying they worship cows, since those of the Hindu faith DO NOT WORSHIP COWS - they would say no such thing.

BTW? If you think you're being cute? You're only coming off as being willfully ignorant.

But thank you for proving once and for all that you're not worth even TRYING to have anything resembling an honest discussion with.

That's all you now offer? The initial A? Don't disappoint you, you now command? I offered you courtesy and you return it with a transparent attempt at manipulation. I have been on these forums for sometime as my date indicates. You are not speaking to some airhead who can't think for himself and just fell from the back of a turnip truck. Your assessment of the people here is faulty. Many of them on both sides can be good conversationalists, and you'd find that out if you dropped the manipulation and the pretense and attempted a real discussion.
I know your ip is not new to this forum and you have aroused my suspicions with your attempts at manipulation and to gain trust and information.
You sir, or ma'am, have disappointed me.
Yes, I think A is good enough. You know my location, but you seem to be hiding yours. Why?

Manipulation? That's funny. How am I manipulating anyone? I think you are in the process of doing that right now. Correct?

Mr. Eddie, if you have been here for a while, why haven't I seen your name before? Do you switch names to confuse people?

My assessment of the people here is faulty? What is my assessment?

You say the people here are good conversationalists, but you have nothing positive to say about them as people. Is that the best you can do ?

I am not here to gain trust...With a group of strangers?

Information? You all have beat that into the ground. Stop with the paranoia. It's not attractive and it's just plain weird.

Attempt a real discussion? How do you know I haven't?

You can stop the pretense.

I just didn't fall off the turnip truck, either.

Eddie, its a troll. No matter what someone says or how sinerely, even in an honest reply to a seemingly direct question - its going to have an inflammitory response.

It wants these responses, it feeds from them. That's what trolls do, y'know? <<grin>>

Well, see, that's just not true. Women have been equal on the playing field for a fairly long time now. A few have even made a run for the presidency and more than a few are in positions of leadership in every aspect of government. Women are respected as much as men in the medical field which didn't use to be the case decades ago. Women are just as athletic and some even more so than men in the sports arena. A few have flown into space and quite a few run big corporations.
This president wants you to believe something that is not true for no other purpose than to cause derisiveness and to create something that simply doesn't exist.
He is actually diminishing the massive strides made in women's rights over the past decades by pretending it never happened.
So the question is why would he do this? The women's movement was a hard fought victory and a thing of the past. No one has been complaining or is even complaining now. Except this president.
You are woefully ignorant. Women are not treated equally in almost every occupation. Women still make less than their male counterparts in most jobs. The glass ceiling still exists. Men continue to expect their women to do most of the domestic work, despite working full time and sometimes earning a higher income. Sexism exists and thrives, today, and women like you are supporting it with your foolish denials.

I worship God, becouse He is WORTHY.
not just an act for an hour a week, but all week long, when I choose to walk or talk a ceetain way, it is worship. Some guys worship their girlfriends, or their cars, and if they lead a cow around everywhere they went, especialy in starving countries, then they worship the cow..........

redundant bullshit deleted for inflammitory stupidity.........
I think we've found your problem.

Clearly you dont know the meaning of the word "worship".

Noun
The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.


Verb
Show reverence and adoration for (a deity); honor with religious rites.

Cars, girlfriends, cows are not deity's you idiot.

Tell me Gtown, what is it you think you will accomplish by alienating pretty much everyone you're speaking to with this nonsense? Seriously?

Is it not your DUTY as a "chrisitan" to lead by example? What example do you think you set when you constantly lie and refuse to educate yourself?

I've been just fine, thank you. How are you enjoying your new digs and your new state? I thought I'd seen mention made that you were taking a class. How did that work out?
Love the new digs and the new state is fine except I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY done with the snow thing now. Ready for spring!!

I was taking a class to become certified in antique apprasal, and I PASSED last week! I'm doing work at the moment for an estate auction house, and am loving it - especially when I get first dibs! <<grin>>

I'm still in the book thing too, but not with the store at the moment. I'll open another at some point, but at this time, I'm really loving this!

You can see my location. Everyone else has a made up name AND a made up location. So who is hypocritical. That would be you and your cohorts.

Why do YOU want to know my name, if it isn't wise to advertise it here. I see, you want me to divulge my information, but you want to hide yours "EDDIE!"

Pretty sly, "EDDIE!"

If I was so inclined, you would be very easy to manipulate, Sir or Madam.

<quoted text>
The internet has made it so even lazy nuts can stalk people from the comfort of their homes now. Once on an old local forum on here a crazy from NYC started arguing with us over a death at UCONN involving a drunk student driver. This New Yorker made all sorts of threats and kept inviting us all down to his turf. After about a week his posts were gone. Another friend of mine on here who generated a lot of enemies had a guy stalking him on the forums. The guy told my buddy he was going to show up at his front door some day and kick his ass. Nothing ever came of it.

I have to respectfully disagree. Abortion would certainly be an issue, because there are women that wouldn't want to have their ZEF transplanted. It would open another option, but it wouldn't eliminate many of the issues themselves.
Greetings Foo! If a woman ever has the option to carry her ZEF, she would not willingly abort, or am I missing your point?

Seems to me that the debated issue is whether a woman should decide for herself if she wants to remain pregnant and give birth.

It's even simpler. If you don't take a stand for something you'll fall for anything.

We're becoming a very confused nation. We have no idea what we stand for as a people anymore.

It's the perfect climate for the perfect storm and the less desirable ideology to control and dictate what we believe. Or else.

And we're almost there. Try and resist it. It's not worth blind loyalty.
