A double negative gives the sentence a positive sense.

<quoted text> So what if they get blasted in the media, people and places get blasted all the time, sticks and stones kind if thing. Straights been blasting gays forever. The constitution does protect the freedom of religion, period. They would have to get the constitution changed. If that's what they want to try, its their right to do so. Do you believe in equlity? Now equality is equality, I'm a using equality as stated in the dictionary, its not "well we are equal because__________ but they're not because_________. Or do you believe in bigotry as the dictionary explains it? Its black and white, people can't be equal only when its convenient or what america is based on is a failure and nothing means anything any more. Look I'm not arguing just discussing differnt points of view. Trying to open people up to tolerance not acceptance, that's 2 different things.
Hopefully neither of us are arguing.. I like to think we are discussing this like adults unlike some of the other posts i get.
Words have meaning and impact otherwise we wouldn't use them.
That is why there are laws governing free speech. Don't fool yourself there are laws governing free speech. So thinking words can always and should be ignore is wrong. Words can hurt a church's ability to draw new members. Slander can have a devastating impact on a person or an organization.
Change the constitution well Obama has trampled on it numerous times. In fairness so did Bush. The constitution has been challenged numerous times and been misinterpreted by the Supreme Court. And NO i won't go into to it. If you or Angel are interested in that do your own research.
Tolerance and acceptance is not always a good thing.Should you tolerate the guy next door beating his kids ? Should you accept except every illegal that enters the country ? I believe your heart is in the right place. But your answers are too simplistic. Life is complicated and there is no easy answer. Opening minds yes good idea just be ready for more then you bargain for.

They don't need to afford it. There are civil rights groups that will take their cases for free. And the cases will quickly be thrown out as frivolous.

About a few weeks ago i posted links on this subject please go back and look for them
i dont have the time today or i would
YES i do believe gays will challenge churches in court down the road.
Its what gays do.
its the gay agenda.( posted about it many times )
and they will win. The constitution will not stop them from suing in court. And churches cannot afford it. Contrary to popular belief not all churches are rich.
A lot of them barely get by. Donations are down and cost keep going up.
Churches will cave in to the gays because
1 ) they can't financially afford to fight them in court
2 ) they never win in court against gays No one wins against gays in court
3 ) churches will get blasted in the media and made to look like the bad guys for following their faith.
4 ) they'll lose members because who wants to get caught up in the middle of that fight.
so it really isn't an issue about the Constitution at all.
Told ya its complicated.
its a righteous battle but its a stacked deck against the church
Just how stupid are you? The government doesn't have any jurisdiction over what churches believe. Remember the first Amendment, or have you gone completely senile in your dotage?

anti-religious bigotry? Once again, are you retarded? You try to enshrine your religious belief in law and force people who do not believe in the same mythology to do it your way and then when they start pushing back it is they who are the bigots? Ef you, punk.

I'm gonna quote George Carlin...if everybody thought this way there would be way less BS to deal with:
“So I say,“Live and let live.” That’s my motto.“Live and let live.” And anyone who can’t go along with that, take him outside and shoot the motherf#cker. It’s a simple philosophy, but it’s always worked in our family.”

it took me a while to find that post. In the future if you're going back a ways please include the post number.
You took it completely of of context. It was part of a back and forth here are the full post numbers i suggest you read all of them
50635
50637
50640
50641
you'll see it was a back and forth on the meaning of LMFAO
i had always learned it to mean FAT i really did - i never heard of it being the other word
in any event the link you are refering to was meant to be understood as
Just Like The Gays Always Have Their Own Meaning Of The Bible So Too They Always Have Their Own Meaning For Things Like LMFAO And That They Are Always Wrong.
had i used the word WITH it would have read like this
just like WITH the bible gays always have their own meaning which is always wrong.
Anyway TRUTH seemed to understand what i meant for he never came to your conclusion.
It is what it is.
some really do think the F stands for a swear word - i personally don't
and that was what the exchange was about.
it was NOT about my views on the bible.
this is what happens when people take things out of context.
Of course it was out of context a bit - wouldn't have been as funny otherwise... overreact much?

btw that was written a day ago.
I've written plenty of stuff since then yet no comments on any of that ??
Also your term NOTED seems very dismissive.
Not very open minded are you ? Not even enough to ask before you NOTED it ?
its ok Christians are used to being taken out of context.
Especially by someone who wasn't even part of the conversation.
In the future if you want to discuss Christianity or the bible just say so.
But i'll tell you up front i don't do bible quotes.
it becomes a tit4tat game and i don't play games with my bible.
The bible should be read as a whole in order to really understand its messages.
Otherwise it gets taken out context . Sound familiar to ya.
Wow, you replied twice? Defensive, yes?

Anal sex is demeaning my wife's ass (pun intended). I've been married to the same woman for over 30 years in a totally monogamous relationship and, I can assure you, her orgasmic intensity is often greater with anal than with vaginal. She also immensely enjoys the occasional rim job I give her.
Sounds like a satisfied wife!

well since you feel that way about me then you'll be better off finding someone else you enjoy talking to.
it would be considerably cruel and evil of you to keep posting resentfully to someone you feel is mentally handicap.
BTW God does not condemn the mentally challenged. But he does condemn those who would bring harm to any of them. You might want to reconsider your words in the future.
Which god is that exactly? Did you prove some god exists on this blog in a previous post (that I am sensing you'll tell me to go find)? Well, did you? If not then stop trying to pretend you have the mind of god tucked away in your back pocket and stick to talking like a rational person, okay?
