My life is so much better knowing about those camels now.
Tell me when you go to a party assuming you even get invited, are you the life of the party or the one everyone tries to avoid?

Did you know that Arab tradition says there are 10,000 names for God and only the camel knows them all?

I may have misread a portion of your post, or you may have purposely ascribed to a word a double meaning, but I was delighted. Hang on a sec, LOLOLOL, read on, read on:
You wrote: "They're too busy trying to playing God's righteous souls here on earth." Now, reread that carefully; it can mean one of two things.
1. They're too busy trying to masquerade or act like God's righteous souls here on earth.
2. They're too busy trying to connive against or deliberately deceive God's righteous souls here on earth.
LOOOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. In one sense, you said they are masqueraders; in the second, you use "play" in the sense of, "play a con game with." I read the sentence in the SECOND sense and I loved it, loved it! To call them "con artists," to imply that they are attempting to con the genuinely righteous, is one mild way of putting it.
Thank you for this post!
And thank you as well. I hadn't really thought of the duality of that statement. You did excellent work.

But in both cases they seem to have an inherent need for people to believe they are "righteous". Which brings up the question of pride. How righteous is someone who is main concern is being perceived as righteous?

Just like in the Sermon on the Mount Matthew 5:11. Some versions translate it as "God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers."

But what if Jesus was speaking about people who are persecuted by the so called "righteous" as in:
“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account."?

Whenever I bring this up nearly every anti-gay insists Jesus was talking about His followers and no one else. The idea that He may have been talking about how His followers treat others seems to amount to heresy to them.

While being persecuted does not automatically make one "right", it definitely DOES render the persecutors wrong.

" ... it is what comes out of a man's mouth that makes him unclean ... "

and

" ... of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks ... "

so

" ... you will know the tree by the fruit that it bears ... "

Because by drawing one conclusion, they can continue to believe they're "correct" (which is paramount in their belief system, and the best reason to ignore them completely), while -- by drawing the other conclusion -- they are being pronounced wrong and horrible, and this too "violently" throws their lives into disarray.

I laugh at those who believe that those antigay people are "above" anyone; they're BENEATH practically anyone else I can think of, and their pointless, empty vomit goes ignored/opposed by me 100% of the time. There's nothing to discuss with them; they're dangerous and irresponsible.

They want to indoctrinate and infect.

In fact, my "edits" take the form of material I *don't post at all*, so it's never seen; I erase it.
