<quoted text> That is the conclusion I arrived at. Prayed 50 years for gods help to be hetero. Lived many years in emotional pain to protect me and family. Scacrifices of staying lonly,denying myself a happier life. Then to read and hear people ssy its a choice is "salt on a deep wound". So many lost years because of religion to having a relationship heteros have. Can't get those years back. 58 and still alone because of religion. Seeing family-friends- neighbors-people publicly enjoying companiinship, hurts very much. Then to be preached to by non clergy on how I should be living. Then dare feign they know better than gays on it being a choice! None of my prayers ever answered. So I vome on here to give my testimonies on the farce called religion. Still I have respect to those that want to be religious. As long as its not forced on me to live by.
Many gay people share the same story. I too blame religion in general and Christianity in particular. Idiots like KiMare ask for examples of how Christ-insanity has harmed people and when KiMare reads stories like yours he just ignores them as askes for examples. Round and round he wants to take it, never getting anywhere and never wanting to get anywhere.

But telling your story of the harm you have suffered because of morons for Christ like our resident simple-minded KaMare can and does help others struggling with their sexuality.

Thank you for sharing your pain.

Like I said, you are most likely the nicest pew warmer in your entire church. Your Con-artist is probably very proud of you.

GOD: 2 Kings 18:27, "...that they may eat their own dung and drink their own pisss with you..."

God was kidding Pat, you can stop eating and drinking now.

We all know what it means when you attack the messenger, it means you can not deal with the message.

Christianty is an abomination it is a crime against humanity and you have been deceived by the biggest hoax ever sold; Christ-insanity.

Why aren't you warming pews this morning?

JESUS: Matt. 18:19-20,[GW] "I can guarantee again that if two of you agree on anything here on earth, my Father in heaven will accept it.

Clearly if to men agree, key word here agree, to have sex with one another Jesus' father in heaven accepts it, so why can't the pew warmers?

GOD: Ecclesiastes 3:1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:"

Since there is a time for homosexuality and a season for sodomy, then clearly we all should be engaging in it.

That is the problem with pew warmiing bigots, you believe every thing you hear. And nothing you read in the Bible except for the 6 most stupid and contradicted verses that exist.

What is humanity to do with such defective beings?

Prov. 6:16 says, "there are 6 things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him" and the 19th verse says one of these is, "...a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."

God hates you.

Maybe you should look back at the last oh say hundred or so of your own posts and then preach to others about attacking the "messenger" hypocrite.
Come on allan anyone who dares disagree with you is instantly flamed.
You are a joke and stop with the reverend thing we know it isn't true just by how you act--just like ken.

Thank you for shedding the light of reality here. I'm showing how my life is to make doubters aware that what they claim knowledge on is only guesswork. They hide behind religion to justify their hate. And see religion as giving them the right to hate. Then ignore scripture themselves to satisfy their needs. Hippocrites.

You are living proof that ChristInsanity has really screwed you up. Bettered stop pew warming or you'll go even more insane.

"...shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6).

See, you are living proof that the lard causes evil in all our lives. You are that evil.

Are you satan's disciple and a Queer Pedophile? I understand why you won't answer. Hard to admit out loud.
Your simple minded attempts to distract me from exposing the Bible for the fraud that it is will not succeed. You can call me all the names you want, you can insult me as much as you please and you can suggest that I am not a very nice person, but none of that will change the fact that I quote the verses from the Bible exactly as they exist. Nor will you distract me from posting them.

What you find impossible to admit is that the Bible is not the book you thought it was. And you are living proof that Christianity is a bad Bad Bad thing;

JESUS: Luke 19:27, "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.'"

JESUS: Luke 14:26, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters yes, even his own life he cannot be my disciple."

Yes, they [or should I say he, since there is only one posting under multiple names] really is a hypocrite, is there another kind of Christian? LOL! No, not really.

I just love to witness all their hopes and dreams going right down the toilet with each and everything I post here. I wish others would save the bible quotes I post and re-post them as needed.

It is called fighting fire with fire. It's a tough job but someone has to do it.:)

"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).

Let's see, if translated properly this is a receipe for strawberry jam. God doesn't really raise up evil and make neighbors lie with other men's wives. No, not God!

No wonder Pew Warmers are so insane.

You aren't normal. You are a Bible bully. Normal people don't give a thought to other people's sexuality.

I stand by my post because it is nothing but the truth.
You know I never thought about other people's sexuality until you perverts rubbed it in my face and tried to take over the Church.
The Episcopal Church is in decline now for deciding to turn queer also. It is a totally unacceptable chosen lifestyle that belongs in no CHristian Church.

Insane?

I think you are insane. What is this suppose to mean?

You take a passage out of context, make some ridiculous claim about it, and then use it to make a bigoted, hateful statement about the most moral and patriotic people of our nation.

You are a sissy coward. Afraid to directly engage me. You gay twirl around making limp wristed pot shots like a bully. Man up honey!

According to my Bishop the Church has been in decline for about 10 years. Approximately 18% decline in Sunday worship. Well guess what? It was about 10 years ago (2003-2004)that Bishop gene robinson rose to his vaulted position in the Church.
The people will never accept this kind of behavior and it shows in the decline.
Now robinson decided to retire early because in his words with the recent acceptance of a lesbian bishop in California, imagine that, he can leave and there will still be a lesbian in the House of Bishops. That's all it means to him just a foot in the door or a camels nose in the tent.

You nailed it.

Exactly the immorality Paul warned the Corinthian Church about.

1 Corinthians 5:6-7 (MSG)
Your flip and callous arrogance in these things bothers me. You pass it off as a small thing, but it's anything but that. Yeast, too, is a "small thing," but it works its way through a whole batch of bread dough pretty fast.
7 So get rid of this "yeast." Our true identity is flat and plain, not puffed up with the wrong kind of ingredient. The Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has already been sacrificed for the Passover meal, and we are the Unraised Bread part of the Feast.

I commend you for your faithful stand.

It is with a sad heart that I watch our Church decline in many areas. Membership decline is bad enough but the young people are not developing a "Church" mind to take the place of the decline.
The money we have put into our Church appears to be in vain if one lesbian Bishop can sue us with our own money and take it away if we don't tow the line.
Well I don't feel like towing that line and many more agree. Our out reach is where the majority of our money goes.
If this continues un checked we will soon owe our souls to the devil--literally.
I appreciate you as well friend in Christ.

Oh, Baloney!

If you really disagree with the Teachings of Christ Jesus, which Teachings are the cornerstone of The Episcopal Church, why aren't you going to another, different Church?

Why don't you try the Roman Catholics or the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod? They supposedly hate each other. But, many of their dogmatic views agree with yours.
