I believe all religious beliefs, including those in the variations on theme of Christianity, because I believe in the freedom of folk to believe. Gods and variations thereof are sought for good reason. I'm just not a practitioner. Over the years I've looked at a number of religions and read their works. They all have something valuable to teach us in one way or another.

>Veronica.....surely you've heard about "sticks and stones." Your post is childish and is proves your lack of experience in life. Concerning my previous post, what on earth long-lasting harm did the high school bullying do? Absolutely NONE....now put a lid on it, that is, if you can balance it on your dunce hat.<

Cupcake, YOUR post is the one that is absolutely childish and ridiculous. GLBT students are being harassed and BULLIED more and more everyday, and as you know, some of the victims are ending their lives. Know why? It's from being BULLIED by brats.

Grow UP and move out of momma's doublewide. Work to END bullying. Don't aggravate it.

Hey, can't you even make your replies original? And we both know why you didn't answer yes or no.(smiling!)
I've gotta tell ya this and it is so true. This evening my wife and I ate out at the Old Style Bar-B-Que here in Olive Branch. I wasn't watching and she said, "look at that!" B y that time the rest of the crowd was watching.....something! A person can dress like they want but I'll swear that had to be a woman's pants suit. I said, well, he,she,it's got just a slight of a beard but hell, it's got a purse on it's shoulder too! If it hadn't been for the beard, because of his motion, the way he sat down, the way he waved twinkle-like at the waiters, etc., I'd of sworn it was a woman. I looked over at another couple and the man just shook his head in disgust. I seriously considered walking over to him and kicking his chair out from under him but he might of broken in half when he hit the floor, he was so skinny. That's one queer that was certainly out of his realm, not that you all aren't.
Well, guess you won't be seeing Lady Gaga when she recovers from her injury and goes back on tour LOL!

This bully crap is just that... I've got two kids in the sixth grade... An 8th grader tried to take the lunch money from one if my twins.... My boy( boy a) said no, so the 8th grader proceeded to take money from my other twin (boy b)... My other twin gave in.... My son ( boy a) saw this and ran up and said no... The 8th grader called his buddy and his buddy came over... They started bullying (boy a) and they hit ( boy a) so that pissed off my son ( boy a ) and my son clocked the 8th grader... The 8th grader hit my boy again.... This time my son (boy a) beat the hell out of the bully.. The school wanted to suspend my son... I mentioned bully and the 8th graders parents were there too and I told all if them that the bully got beat... Now the 8th grader leaves the kids alone.... We don't need to have bully laws... We got to get our kids to stand up... Schools aren't going to protect all the kids every day every minuet if the day... It's up to us as parents to make our kids strong, not cowards.... This anti bully is a joke... You best up the bully and he leaves ya alone....

You end bullying by beating the hell out of the bully... I had to do it... My kids had to do it... It's part of life.. What are you going to do when the kids are out if school and their in the real world... You got to stand on your own two feet.... You can't rely on the teacher all the time ... I've seen bullies in Applebee's and now their adults ... They were never taught a lesson.... We don't need a bunch of wimps running around...from the sounds of it you were probably bullied... You beat the bully
