I just had to hold this up to all of you as an example of what you are dealing with here.
This person actually posted references of his own free will which proved he was wrong, and then gloated as if he was right.
It's an incredible display of astonishing idiocy.
Oh I know well what I'm dealing with. I'm dealing with an irrational asinine that think's they know it all concerning phrases and proved they don't.
You now claim I admit I'm wrong. Some more of your pathetic self righteous thinking. I told you the following on page 22, post 464 your pathetic reading ability didn't absorb.
"Be it incorrect when spelled, there is a phrase as "deep seeded". When purposefully spelled as such as I used it, it's usually used in a metaphorical meaning as I explained."
I'll paste that for you again so you can read it as it was written SEVEN PAGES AGO...lol.
"Be it incorrect when spelled,". Fricking whiner...lol.
Want me to paste your all knowing attitude about tit for tat where you were also wrong?

It's not the gay people trying to stop who you can build a life with. It is you trying to stop them. They are not in your business.
No. Its them that are trying to force people to endorse their unhealthy life styles. It is my business when a group is trying to redefine marriage. It is my business when their unhealthy life styles lead to higher insurance premiums for all of us.

I was discussing it for the benefit of doubt for Liam. Liam is pretty level headed for debates.
I have never seen evidence(except for extreme scriptural manipulation of interpretation)that either Jonathan or David had a romantic affair and or marriage.
The things in the story of David and Jonathan that are tough to interpret are where same sex believers interpret as evidence for romance between the two men.
The story reveals David was very heterosexual. So even on the possibility that David and Jonathan did do something romantically, it was a one time same sex relationship for David from his normal attraction to women. He wasn't gay or bisexual or a homosexual as many like to wish to believe. To state he was is an out right lie. To state he had a romantic relationship with Jonathan, anything is possible if their is evidence for it.

I love how you added the lie "24/7". No one made that claim, but that statement is one of the most quoted statements in Mormonism. The only person lying here is you, in every post. Now why is that? Why is it you can't debate from an honest position? It is a demonstration you know how wrong you are. And my, oh my, how you use to cry buckets of tears about my language, and now you're being such a potty mouth yourself. "Signs of an ignorant person, that is." - A famous Jedi Master.
Please don't tell me you're daring me to go back in time and paste your's and nomo's statements that Mormon parents were responsible for gay teen deaths. See, you have made that statement just recently. Want me to post it in capitol letters to show your a liar to claim you didn't say it? But you're in good company with some others here that like telling lies so they'd support your lying huh :)
Your claim I lie in every post is a lie.
Your claim I cried buckets of tears is a lie.
That's three lies you have made in just this post alone.
I use to "whine" not cry about all the cussing and swearing and derogatory words you used. Why? Because embarrassingly you claimed over and over you were a Christian. And a Christian following Christ will not say the things you use to say. They would avoid saying the things you said. So I spent time to help you understand if you're going to state your a true honest Christian, you really needed to back off the lies and all the cussing and derogatory speech and begin to speak like the Christian you claimed to be.
Understand?

Yep. Suicides among homosexuals may have been lower. What was the death rate of homosexuals as a result of what would today be deemed "hate crimes?" While we're at it, why don't we look at how pervasive and constant bullying can be today versus 50 years ago. Today, it's potentially impossible to avoid 24/7 bullying via e-mail, text message, facebook, twitter, youtube, etc. 50 Years ago, you'd either get bullied at school, on your way to school, or on your way home. A few hours per day versus every waking hour. A couple hundred people being aware of your victimhood then versus tens of thousands, even millions being aware of your victimhood today.
I'll take a guess at this and say their are more suicides due to bullying that isn't connected to one's sexual attraction, than their are suicides from bullying connected to one's sexual attraction.

So, if anal sex were illegal, you'd support same-sex marriage?

Since when do we deny people rights because granting them a right would involve some sort of expense?

Marriage was already redefined, from one man with any number of wives to one man with one wife. Why isn't the older tradition the one to keep? For that matter, why allow inter-racial marriage, as marriage was defined as a man and woman of the same race?

I don't endorse facial tattoos, so why should people have the right to get them? They're trying to get me to approve of their deviant lifestyle choices!

Its a fact that homosexual sex among men is unhealthy. Its fact that marriage has always been between a man and a women (even polygamists acknowledge this). Can you name a society where same sex marriage was the norm?

1. No, it's not your business. You're just making yourself a busybody.

2. Again, if you are concerned about unhealthy "life styles" leading to higher insurance premiums, then you have no choice but to support same sex marriage, which necessarily almost completely eliminates any chance of anything "unhealthy" and obviously lowers insurance premiums.

Talk your way out of that one, hypocrite.

What was your excuse before AIDS?

What will be your excuse when there is a cure?

Why do you pretend to care, when you're really just prejudiced? Married gay people do not give each other diseases.

P.S. Bearing false witness is wrong.

There is nothing unhealthy about gay sex.

Why should it matter if they were in love with each other? How does that hurt YOU? God favored David and Jonathan.
