Solomon must have been continuously exhausted.
And one has to wonder what all those wives and concubines were doing to relieve sexual tension while Solomon was busy elsewhere...which would have been almost all the time.
But then, does anyone recall the Bible prohibiting women lying with women?
Yes. The Bible's instructions of sexual immorality covers it all.

Yes, that's what I just said.
The old laws don't apply to Christians.
Ah...then you agree with my statement the "Jesus made the laws obsolete". So why did you say you DISAGREED with that statement?

And if the old laws don't apply anymore, why are you on a rant against homosexuals?

It isn't normal.
That doesn't make it bad, just not normal.
Just like being left handed, albinos, fear of cereal boxes, putting ketchup on pizza and crapping on your sex partner during sex all aren't normal.
Thanks for your opinion.

I've grown since I started reading and posting here too.
About 2 inches. I think I've peaked. I'm as tall as I'll ever get.
Honestly, it was people like you, IANS, OCB, Mac, HL and Buck that helped me to grow. It has everything to do with Topix.

Your growth in height is due to the hard work of Chinese children making your stripper shoes ;)

Marriage has a powerful potential to impact the world.
That is why a deception of such an important relationship is not just a fallacy, but dangerous denial.
The real question is, why do homosexuals want to poorly mimic a relationship they are clearly inferior to?
"Poorly mimic"? "Clearly inferior" according to whom?

Seems to me, this is just your prejudice talking.

Do you even realize this is the same sort of talk about African Americans that came out of the Jim Crow South?

Your awesome googling abilities clearly mean you understand Scripture better than I.
But I will agree with you one thing, the KJV isn't a reliable translation.
Ah...right, RR. And I suppose you can spout all the different Bible translations off the top of your head and not make a single mistake.

<quoted text> By your logic there is must be no difference between a murderer and the judge who orders the murderer to fry in the electric chair. I think it has something to do with authority. In theory (since you do not believe in God) the Almighty provides life and can take it away. Kim Jong is abusing his authority since he is supposed to take care of his people and administer proper justice. God on the other hand can dispose of life any way He chooses. The account is meant as a warning of things to come.
And isn't god supposed to also take care of his people? So God can dispose of life any way he chooses? Thanks for confirming that your God is not a loving, caring, compassionate and just God. Your analogy is horribly flawed, a judge is simply carrying out the will of the people, people who have deemed that the taking of a life is the most hideous of crimes and the offender should also forfeit his/her life. Your God kills for no good reason, and is not only NOT held accountable but is worshiped. A God that kills wantonly, for no good reason, is a God worse that any murdering human including KimJung-Un. You worship a murdered, and worse, a baby killer, and just why you are not totally embarrassed to admit to worshiping this evil being is a mystery to me. Shame on you!!!

If I don't provide links or quotes, you complain that I am presenting things lacking evidence.

If I DO provide links or quotes, you denigrate my use of Google.

Oh, sorry. Buck doesn't denigrate my use of links. He just ignores them.

Maybe he hasn't figured out if you click on the blue text it will present a different web page.

LOL.

But the Bible's prohibitions against multiple fabrics don't apply at all any more?

And when the Ten Commandments says "Thou shalt not kill", why doesn't that cover it all. Why do so many theists consider war and the death penalty AOK? Shouldn't "Thou shalt not kill" cover those as well?

I've always wondered about the "virgins" part. Shouldn't they want 72 highly experienced women instead?

Thank Crom for those stone tablets, or Moses wouldn't have been around to oversee the rape of all those thousands of virgins that God ordered.
Um, I don't think the Jews would be around. No other culture has maintained identity as long, and with such distinction.

I think that despite their dribblings, ar ar and bucky duck are doing great things for the mentally challenged population of the world.

They are giving them hope and confidence in their abilities and brain power.

This might help.

I had to inform Ar Ar he was a Protestant Christian. The discussion went on over numerous posts - pages - with him denying he was a Protestant.

You have your beliefs and I have mine.
It's incredibly unlikely that either will change.
Well that may be, but for myself, I'm open to any and all fact-based information, and I'm highly skeptical of dogma and ideology. In that light, my beliefs have changed considerably over the last 10 years.

All I can say is this - if you haven't read your Bible yet (and I seriously doubt you have), for heaven's sake don't start now. It'll change everything.

Go in peace and joy and in the light of knowledge.

Don't bail on me again with ad homoan attacks and scoffing masquerading as intelligence.

~The result of a duplicate gender relationship is not distinct from the union of diverse genders?

~The intimate expression of oneness is not poorly mimicked in anal abuse?

~The barren desolation of a ss couple is not inferior to the fruit a marriage produces?

That's just a start of simple obvious facts.

SMile.
