Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Gee Seenie

You have made up two totally opposite stories again. Like when you claimed you didn't leave Christianity for so long was that you wanted to appease your parents even though you knew the truth since age 2 from your post where you claimed after you left of years of individual study determining the Bible was false

Yet this time you went from claiming you can't articulate your knowledge to other people because they are too stupid to understand you even though you tried like with Larry to now claiming you couldn't articulate it to anyone because it was shown to you and either someone knows it or they don't.

And how did i lie about what your god would want you to do? I asked you when the last time he visited you and was he happy that you don't try to share and teach all the things he told you. You know, the same way you did 5 year ago before someone made fun of you but now claim either someone knows or they don't.

I am gonna let you off the hook Seenster. It is a new year and picking on the mentally disabled yet extremely hateful and hypocritical seems like a waste of time. You have yourself another fantastic year of Christian stalking revenge. Let's hope it makes you a little happier than last year yah?

(skom accusing anyone of stalking and revenge still has me in stitches)

You forgot to tilt your hat sideways when you posted it

But yeah, who didn't see that coming?

I have never in my life seen someone try to play the victim that is one of the biggest antagonists on Topix and friends with some of the biggest antagonists on Topix. But there is nothing that makes people strike out more than a victim complex. No matter how delusional it may be.Topix gives people the feeling of 'power' absent from real life. Lord only knows what surrogate role you are filling

Anyway, hope you have a great new year Serah

<quoted text>I honestly don't even know where to start
So did you think slaves had the burden of proof to show why they should be free men in the states where slavery was legal?
Slave not even considered citizens. Homosexuals and their supporters are. They have rights to advocate change. They have to make their case. The problem is not really with gays or lesbians but is with folks like you who for all practical purposes defend them by equating slavery and women's voting rights with an alleged right for adults to marry who they please. Normalize SSM and you are going to have a bunch of confused teens who would be more apt to engage in that type of behavior which is dangerous. Look at the stats.
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/risk/gender/msm/facts/...
----------
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM))a represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV. In 2010, young MSM (aged 13-24 years) accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among all persons aged 13 to 24, and 30% of new infections among all MSM. At the end of 2010, an estimated 489,121 (56%) persons living with an HIV diagnosis in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU.

In 2010, MSM accounted for 63% of estimated new HIV infections in the United States and 78% of infections among all newly infected men. From 2008 to 2010, new HIV infections increased 22% among young (aged 13-24) MSM and 12% among MSM overall.
----------
Did women have the burden of proof to show why they shouldn't be able to vote?
They certainly did their part.
Being illegal isn't synonymous with being wrong
Being illegal does not mean always wrong.
And even if you don't think people are born gay, so what?
As a Christian i can consider that based on original sin. That means there is a strong possibility people can be born with a disposition towards homosexuality. Material atheists have to come up with a biological justification. If they find one then the possibility for a cure exists. They don't want to find one.
Nobody needs your permission to marry based on their legal, consenting, adult sexual relationships.
Agreed. Don't know why you want to make it about me.
Some straight couples like to piss and crap on each other or choke each other or engage in S&M or swinging. How does what someone chooses to do sexually have anything to do with whether they should be allowed equal rights?
Going off the deep end? What is your point?
Rights that marriage gives straight people like spousal privilege, tax breaks, citizenship, etc
And who cares about who is a biological dad?
The child? I cared about my father. You did not?
The only thing that matters is whether they are a good parent. Not where their sperm went. And any kid is better off with 2 loving gay parents than growing up in foster care
Foster care is not the issue and i think Eagle responded adequately on that issue. There is not enough info out to come to any conclusions on same sex parents. I do know children in my state are treated OK. A lot of that is run through the church and there is plenty community support. People are compelled to do what they can to help children.

You are making the assumption that SSM couples are going to exceptional parents in every situation. You and I know that’s not going to be the case. There’s very little history of SSM couples raising children.
Yet we are headed down this road and children are going to be hanging in the balance in this massive experiment on a grand scale. And when the outcome 20 years from now is more horrific than it is today. You can blame the people that are pushing this agenda.
Teen suicide rates are going to increase, illegal drug use is going to skyrocket, school dropouts will trend upward, and crime will show a spike, gang involvement will be even more prolific. But you and all the others will have gotten exactly what you wanted. A completion of the meltdown of the family unit.
Again I never said all gay couples would be great parents

And a system is in place that while flawed (social services, criminal justice) that should protect kids from any bad parents

There is one issue

Is a kid better off in general in foster care or with two people that love them that happen to be gay

Nobody who cared more about the kid would stand in the way of that

He doesn't care about children, Skom. He cares about his safety bubble. He's afraid to admit that he's wrong. It happens but those people end up at the fringe, tilting at windmills. It's sad but it's life.

Don't be dishonest

When you deliberately edit my post out of context and lie your entire argument gets pitched in the trash

I didn't just sat who cares about their biological dad. I went in to say what matters is if they are a good parent and you snuck your answer in I between my full quote stopping it after the dad part

And what deep end? You want to make the point that what people do sexually should dictate if they are allowed to marry. Do you even understand your own argument? And by that logic you must be on with all that other stuff if you don't oppose straight couples that do it and get married

And there is not enough info to know if a kid is better off in foster care than in a home with two people that love him?

Seriously, if you travel abroad, don't tell anyone you are American or Christian. We will try to cover for you here but Ed don't need the the whole world thinking you are representative of what our faith or educational systems crank out

I have seen some stupid things rationalized because of bigotry. But that one is right at the top. But we know you won't be adopting the kid either way right? So what do you tell yourself? Well there isn't enough information to know if leaving the kid with no home to be raised the state was better than being in a loving home. Hope I'm right and ding find out later how bad I helped ruin this kids life since there is enough info already to know foster care systems don't normally crank out success stories

But hey, screw that kid. The important thing is you got to butt into other people's lives despite doing nothing to help yourself and made sure your personal beliefs were forced on others

I am sure Jesus who was all about love, children, and the needy would salute your efforts to keep a kid out of a loving home to be raised by the government. Or maybe you know parents who are sinless?

I know

Part of me wants to believe its possible to get someone like that to see reason

Or at least see how they are putting themselves ahead of the very people they claim to care about

That maybe they will be honest with themselves and admit it isn't the welfare if the child they actually care about

But deep down I realize the odds of that happening are next to zero

Gays do not have a right to citizenship? Tax breaks involve children. The tax break comes no where near the cost in raising a child. Spousal privilege not a problem is people abide by the law. How many married couples have been actually put in the position of having to invoke spousal privilege compared to the number of married person who have not? For all practical purposes it is a phantom. My older brother never had children and worked all his life. He is now retired and rich. You know why? He didn't make all that much money as a high school teacher. He never had the expense associated with marriage and raising children! Even though he paid a higher tax rate!

You won't find the Bible in the fiction part of Barnes and Nobel but you will find Don Quixote along with Gone With The Wind and Atlas Shrugged.These are three of my favorites. No, not everybody has read Don Quixote but they are the ones who miss out.
