Bigotry in action and they make innocent children suffer. Is that how Christianity does it's work?

These same funders of charitable organizations want the government OUT of social services. Let private charity do it.

Fine with me. KBH can do without government funding. What's disgusting, though, is that the state has outsource children's services to this group. Gay and lesbian children haven't got a chance in KY.

Using $20 million dollars a year of federal taxpayer's money to support a redneck-only KKK 'church' ministry is part of the reason America is $17 BILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT

No, that's how religion runs its business. And religion has absolutely NOTHING to do with Christianity.

The easiest way to panic stupid people and get them to give you money is to find an enemy and demonize them. That's how religion functions. Evil around every corner. And if there isn't evil around every corner, make it up. Stupid people don't know the difference anyway.

You know the pharisees, right? The very definition of how they operate is that the ideology, the idea, the word, the rule, is *MUCH* more important than people, relations, compassion, assistance, love.

MOST of the "religious" are pharisees; it's everywhere. Few strive beyond that. Think about it: Most insist that "this set of rules" must be followed, and obsess.

Christ, what classic trolling this thread is full of.

The responses are brief; they are pointlessly and senselessly hateful; they are designed to attempt to upset others, but what is paramount is that the troll *must* appear to be making little or no effort.

They're terrified of looking as if they made any substantive effort; they're *exactly* the individuals who would lose 100.0% of the time in courts of law. This is why the trials are so great.

That character from "The Shining" - Jack Torrance?- is posting in this thread.

It's great: The psychosexually sick homophobes are so distraught they're losing the capacity for language.

Their only too obvious mortification has evolved into ridiculous hysteria .. What next ? Absolute insanity , perhaps ?

I thought it was the billions they spend on HIV/AIDS. BTW, where do you get your numbers?

[QUOTE who="PoPo 5.0"]If you hire one queer, you will be infested with them. I have seen it.[/QUOTE]

That's correct. There is about one place you go - your house of worship of hate - and not encounter a preponderance of gay friendly or glbt people.

Go similarly bray about and defame all those smokers and drinkers who cause far, far, far more costs, and then we'll know you don't merely have a profound psychosexual problem, you sick freeek.

You obviously haven't spent a whole lot of time in a house of worship lately, have you? You might be surprised, especially in the South and Southwestern United States.

Oh, Jesus.

Obviously I said "your house of worship of hate," meaning "his house of worship of hate."

I am occasionally found in religious spaces myself, but I can assure you they are not of the homophobic or misogynist sort.

Because I reduce those odds considerably by not living in the stupid, backwards buybull belt.
