I looked at the comments on this Free Republic link. Because last week I signed up and was accepted.

Then I wrote a response to another person's comment. I wasn't rude. I simply asked where they planned on getting a Get OUT Of Jail Free Card when it came to living Matthew 25-31-46 (The parable of the goats and the sheep.)

They (the Free Republic) a "christian site", BANNED me for quoting the Bible!

So I am not at all surprised that whoever posted this also included such a tacky and low rent style of treating the office of the U.S. President like they did.

I seem to recall how this very site HOWLED whenever anyone DARED post and embarrassing pic of Dubya.

Well done Free Republic and whoever posted this article.

You just showed how low you folks really are when it comes to behaving like Jesus said you should.

This is what I wrote and why a 'christian' website banned me:

To paraphrase the words of Hulk Hogan "whatcha gonna do when Judge -O -mania runs wild on you?”

Matthew 25:31-46
The Sheep and the Goats
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right,‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left,‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

Did you know god does not care about sexuality he created everyone equally and loves them jjust the way they are. So why do you accuse people of being sinners, just be open to their choices in life. Cause I'm sure god would not forsake his children for loving same gender as themselves.

Did you know god isn't real? Mate, businesses SHOULD have the right to hire who they want for whatever reason.
I only hire well groomed girls with fluent English for my customer service roles. They do need to feel comfortable in their clothing too so that means I'm not hiring any size 16 girl that wears size 12 clothing in order to make some kind stupid sexual impression.
Girls tend to do much better than the males I've hired in the past in regards to keeping a customer engaged and seem to draw more people into the store.
Why do you think that whenever you start a navigation app or call up your phone company, that you will 90% get a female voice.
Simply put, it's proven that people respond better to a female voice.
So if I choose to not hire someone because I think they might be gay, probably because as a business owner, I want to convey one particular kind of image to the target demographic.
I mean OF COURSE it's classed as discrimination if you say it outright so obviously I'll just give some bullshit excuse like "sorry I just don't think you're just what I'm looking for right, I feel like you're missing the X-factor"

Well, where I work at it is stated in our contract (yes union) that they can't fire someone on 'just cause'. So yes, unions are good. Then I know of NOWHERE, someone has to work 40 yrs before they can retire!

Why? If God had a problem with gay folks, He would not make so many of us, send so many of us soul-mates to cherish, and bless our lives and families in so many wonderful ways.

I suspect you are just jealous of God's loving eye on His gay children.

Except for the religious organizations exemption.

But I love being able to show has much the religious right is now pushing their special rights program.

When it comes to the question of marriage for gays and lesbians why does it even matter what causes it?

Do we outlaw males who carry the gene for early onset Alzheimer's disease from marriage?
The women who carry Duchenne muscular dystrophy; a form of muscular dystrophy that worsens quickly.... Because of the way the disease is inherited, boys are affected, not girls...

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/artic ...

Or do we ban SSM because being gay is a Choice?

Like banning Presbyterian or Unitarian Universalist marriages because RELIGION is a CHOICE?

Atheism's main focus is rational thought. I have no problem with those who question my "irrational" belief in God. And I see no reason to challenge their belief because it is rational.

This thread is about a rational way to view being gay or lesbian.

Whether theological or factual logic, we exist, therefore there IS A PURPOSE FOR GAYS AND LESBIANS.

perhaps none of us know that that true purpose is. B u6t hen how many of us know our own true purpose?
