<quoted text> I to used to believe this. I no longer do. Where do we draw the line? just in our laws alone -people in times past would be punished, for things that we are told to accept as normal. Where will it end? There are a few who believe in doing things, that even the most liberal of people would find hugely offensive, yet to them it is just how they roll. They say it is better to drag out into the open what is growling at you, so atleast you know the truth -good or bad. A person will never be liberated,untill they realize the truth.
WE draw the line at you live your life as you see fit, so long as it does not infringe on another person's civil rights. We do the same.
<quoted text> Yes -I had a few friends that had good solid families, and it makes a huge difference on the path a person takes "every circumstance in different ",but I found foo's comment about peoples "SONS "going to war being just as bad. Isn't it neat how they pick what they want, when they want? If you start telling them about someones SON who gets his girlfriend pregnant, but she wants to abort, then it's too bad! Double S I know how they think and judge, becouse I was just like them. If I started thinking about my drinking to much -I would start thinking about someone I knew that would drink more then me. Then I would feel better about myself :)

That is because you are a hypocrite. Being "saved" didn't change that.
<quoted text> In many ways, we are. For me, the glass is half full. For you, apparently, it's half empty. You may want to consider that the former is because I'm not trying to convince everyone to believe as I do, and the latter is because you apparently need them to in order to validate your own beliefs.
Yeah. That's why he wants to focus on himself constantly.
<quoted text> Yeah. That's why he wants to focus on himself constantly. "let's talk about my mommy" "let's talk about my mistress" "let's talk about when God 'woke me up'" "But, but...But, Let's talk about ME!" lol
<quoted text> My Grandma was also infamous for giving a pinch on the arm. She'd manage to get a good piece of skin and she had a penchant for doing that shit when we'd be in church. You knew damn well you couldn't scream because if you did, your ass was grass and she was the lawnmower when you got home!! I swear, my Abuelita's a thug! There's nothing funnier than listening to my hardcore beefcake Marine cousins talk about how they'd rather deal with all the craziness that has to do with serving in a war torn country than deal with the wrath of my Gram, LMAO!!
That's right! Don't mess with gramma! How did you know I was talkin about my granny?? lol
Old school. They didn't play. Time out? What's a time out?
<quoted text> LOLOL Too fricken funny, Michelle! I used to wonder how come grammas always get just the right amount of skin... Half the time they're not even looking!
I don't know how grandma's do it. I don't know if that's something you automatically learn when you become a grandma, if it's something that comes with age or if this is a time honored tradition that's passed on from grandma to grandma. I'd ask my grandma where she learned how to regulate on grandkids but I'm afraid that she'd ask "Why the hell do you want to know?" and she'd kick my ass afterwards just for asking her crazy shit like that, LMAO!!
<quoted text> There is no one "moral standard". That is the point. Morals are subjective, not objective, and relative to the person/group holding them.
That silly little man continually puts words in our mouths. I don't think he intends to be deceitful. I think he hasn't the inate intuition or the education to interpret anyone's comments properly. He's a bohunk.
I agree bit writes well, and she nor you try and show others your beliefs, since they change at any given time.
I don't blame either of you for not sharing.
Neither one of you know what you believe. This is a public forum however as you said, and my opinions are just like yours -oponions. Yet there are somethings that have and will happen, no matter what you or I believe.
<quoted text> That's right! Don't mess with gramma! How did you know I was talkin about my granny?? lol Old school. They didn't play. Time out? What's a time out?
OMG, old school is right. You just don't mess with grandma's. It don't matter whose grandma it is. I'm friends with a Sicilian guy and his Nonna is a scream. I have learned the hard way that Sicilian grandma's and Mexican grandma's have a lot in common. They know how to throw down in the kitchen and they know how to throw a punch, ROFLMAO!!
